"Makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God."
Text: Romans 8:27
OUR INTERCESSORY PRAYERS
How effective are our intercessory prayers? We would have to admit we are not that effective in our intercessory efforts. We fail in a number of areas. Three may be highlighted:-
1. We lack faith.
2. We lack diligence.
3. We lack comprehension of God’s will.
4. Our hearts are not always pure and clean when we pray.
THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT’S INTERCESSION
What about the intercessory ministry of the Spirit of God? How does that compare? Let us ponder the following text carefully.
“Now He who searches the hearts knows
what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes
intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”
