Love on Its Knees

Posted on

“Love is the motivating force in all true intercession.  Intercession is not simply a dispassionate communique’ in order to ask God to do something for others.  It is a self-giving ministry of love and care for the benefit of others that releases God’s grace into their lives.  Intercession is prayer born of love…If we truly love people we will want for them more than we are capable of giving them.  For the intercessor this loving desire leads to prayer in their behalf.  Prayer is a way to bring God into the lives of others so that He will do for them what they cannot do for themselves…In other words, one way to love another person is to pray for them—intercession is love on its knees.”
