{Pray; Without Ceasing}

To God, nobody is a nobody. Each individual has a value beyond computation. Our prayers should be in direct proportion to the desperate wickedness from which people need saving. The worse the wickedness, the more the intercession. Nobody should have to go through life without somebody praying for him (or her). (1 Timothy 2:1-4 (NIV)) The ultimate aim of intercession is evangelism – God “wants all men to be saved.” Intercession is not a say-so, but a heart-cry. Our Lord Jesus prayed for us until He sweat drops of blood. He even prayed for the soldiers hammering nails through his quivering flesh. Pray for all men, for Christlessness is terrible. There is only one Savior, and if He is rejected what can people do? Their cry is like Reuben’s when he found Joseph had gone: “And I, where shall I go?” (Genesis 37:30). There is nowhere to go. So, people just drift along, perhaps together, unknowingly heading for hell. Christless religion is hell on earth. Religious leaders killed Jesus. We see it today in unbridled hate, terrorism, murder and oppression in the name of God. Intercession is urgent. Intercession brings divine intervention. We have one generation in which to save a generation, not a century. Let’s pray and preach, pray and preach, pray and preach. God bless you. REINHARD BONNKE
