The Intercessor Journey is uncharted. There are only guides but when it comes to your personal intercessor journey--the Lord must lead you one step at a time--and you may not be able to see the next step.
The journey of intercessors could be described as an uncharted one. We hear the desire of the Lord concerning prayer--especially wanting our churches to be a house of prayer, but there is very little 'out there' to encourage us how to get there.
As intercessors not in the administrative loop of the church, our direct influence sometime seems very limited. That may not be all that bad. It is not for us to change things by ourselves. That is the Lord’s job. Our job is to faithfully pray. We may find that as we study God’s word and pray, that God sometimes gives us an impression of what HE wants. When He does, it would be good to write down what we are sensing. Writing it down is doing what Amos 2 vs 3 says—write the vision down.
It may take much time for that vision to be fulfilled. The time in waiting for it to be fulfilled should be a time of much prayer about it. We must be persistent in prayer, even if there is no encouragement.
Take time to consider how many people have come to know the Lord after being prayed for by a faithful mother or father, who prayed for them for many years. Hebrews 12 vs 13 (Living Bible) says: ”So take a new grip with your tired hands, stand firm on your shaky legs, and mark out a straight, smooth path for your feet so that those who follow you, though weak and lame, will not fall and hurt themselves, but become strong.”
I would encourage those in our group to share a story of how God has worked after much prayer and their struggles on that journey of prayer.
