Which Sunday? Any Sunday–they’re all great when Jesus is in control. It’s hard to believe there’s a minor flu epidemic when you see the fantastic crowds in both services. I’m praying God will give our people an extra measure of health during these days. I see no reason why God should have to take a back seat to a flu bug!
SECRET WEAPON OF THE CHURCH– INTERCESSION
Intercession is an ICB Missile that can be fired to any place on earth, at the speed of thought, without detection and with deadly accuracy. It can even be armed with a delayed detonator. But the greatest feature of this secret weapon is THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DEFENSE AGAINST IT! A lost man can stay away from church, refuse to listen to your sermons, shut his eyes to your tracts and reject your witness, but he is totally defenseless against intercession.
When armed with the fullness of the Spirit this weapon can literally devastate the enemy!
Memorizing these Prayer Promises will enlarge your faith and encourage you to intercede:
“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us: And, if we know that he hears us whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” I John 5:14, 15
“And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that he Father may be glorified in the Son.” John 14:13
