The Word enjoins us: Remember those who are in prison as if you were their fellow prisoner, and those who are ill- treated, since you also are liable to bodily sufferings. (Hebrews 13:3)
At 12noon and 10pm (GMT+1) we’ll intercede for 15min in prayer for those referred to in the foregoing scripture accordingly, and pray fervidly in the spirit. God bless you.
Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; [and] them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.
In Acts 12, the disciples of Jesus found themselves in a predicament: Herod had seized James and killed him. When he discovered that this pleased the Jews, he went further and apprehended Peter. The Church had by this time realized that if they didn’t intercede for Peter, he would suffer the same fate as James. Consequently, the Bible says “… prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him (Peter).”
Whilst they were praying, Peter was rescued miraculously from prison by an angel of the Lord. Thank God they had learnt their lesson; albeit, at a high cost. It’s important that we intercede for our fellow brothers and sisters who are experiencing persecutions. Sadly however, some believers only come together to talk about how bad things have gone and all the evil happening in the world. They shut their eyes to the problems other believers are facing. I tell people that there are no casual visits. Every time y you have the opportunity to be with another believer, don’t spend all the time on trivial or irrelevant discussions; take some time to join hands together in intercession for brethren in the Church.
Don’t be lazy in praying for other believers around the world and interceding for men everywhere. Be actively involved in this; and the good things you make happen for others, God will make happen for you.
Today, we remember those who are in prison and all those that suffer ill- treatment around the world in prayer. Join us as we intercede for these ones today at t 12noon and at 10pm (GMT+1) for 15mins
Let us pray.
