Today as I was singing in church I realized the absolute beauty of words and the power of crying to the heavens. God wants us to cry out in desperation, to be down on our knees, to be broken and burdened, not for HIM, but FOR us. I know that when I sing and praise and share my joy of His amazing power I am in a different heart space then when I am crying out in desperation. It says in E that there is a time for everything but I wonder how often I have decided in the venue of a church service to be the person that is no holds barred crying out to Him. Yes, there is a time for worship, a time for quiet, a time for prayers of request, prayers of healing, prayers for those pre-christian people in our families, but when the Lord burdens you with intercessory prayers for things unseen, He is not asking for quiet quick prayer. I know what Pastor Scott was saying this Sunday morning, when he said we sing loud and pray quiet, the Lord had burdened me with the same thing. I was thinking 'come-on church".
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart from what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdoms cause
As I go from nothing to
I found this quote on line, the definition of an intercessor.
