Helps to Intercession
By Andrew Murray
What to Pray – For the Church of the Future
That the children might not be as their fathers, a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not steadfast with God. -Ps. 78:8.
I will pour My Spirit upon thy seed, and My blessing upon thy offspring. -Isa. 44:3.
Pray for the rising generation, who are to come after us. Think of the young men and women and children of this age, and pray for all the agencies at work among them; that in associations and societies and unions, in homes and schools, Christ may be honored, and the Holy Spirit get possession of them. Pray for the young of your neighborhood.
How to Pray – With the Whole Heart
The Lord grant thee according to thine own heart. -Ps. 20:4.
Thou hast given him his heart’s desire. -Ps. 21:2.
I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O Lord. -Ps. 119:145.
God lives, and listens to every petition with His whole heart. Each time we pray the whole Infinite God is there to hear. He asks that in each prayer the whole man shall be there too; that we shall cry with our whole heart. Christ gave Himself to God for men; and so He takes up every need into His intercession. If once we seek God with our whole heart, the whole heart will be in every prayer with which we come to this God. Pray with your whole heart for the young.
