A Day Off From Interceding


After Michele had been praying for a friend for years, she complained to the Lord, "I've invested all this heartache and burden praying for this person but I wonder if anything is happening. Are my prayers making any difference? I want a day off from interceding."

Despite that prayer she specifically prayed for her friend's physical protection. She later learned that on that day he was involved in a dreadful accident in which he could have been killed.

The Lord showed "me He's working via my feeble attempts at intercession. It was as if the Lord put a billboard in front of me and said, 'I am doing a work in this friend, and you need to and keep praying.'"

Dear Jesus, help me to be faithful.

"So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised" (Heb 10:35-36).
