Day 8 – For the Power of the Spirit to Fall on All Believers
Scripture to Meditate on and Pray Through –
“On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many” (2 Corinthians 1:11).
How to Pray: With Specific Petitions –
“What do you want me to do for you?” (Luke 18:41). In the above reference, the Lord knew what the blind man wanted and yet He asked him. Verbalizing our desires gives credence to the transaction in which we are engaged with God and so awakens faith and expectation.
Be specific in your petitions so as to know what answer you may look for. Think of the great number of Believers in Christ you know who are working for God in their various fields and endeavors, and ask and expect God to bless them and prosper them in answer to the prayers of His people. Ask even more specifically for those in your own family, place of work and neighborhood. Intercession is not the breathing out of pious wishes; it is believing, persevering prayer to receive specific answers to specific requests.
What to Pray: For the Spirit on All Christian Workers (All believers) –
There are Christian workers in every walk of life: not only in our churches and missions but also in our schools, our hospitals, our government, our military, our highways, our farms, our markets, in business, and in leisure. God be praised for this! But think what more they could accomplish if each were living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit!
Pray for them; it makes you a partner in their work, and you will have reason to praise God when you hear of blessing in their lives and in their work on every front.
