The Joy of Intercession
Experience breakthrough, intimacy with the Father, and supernatural joy when you pray!
When you think of intercession, what comes to mind? For many Christians, intercession and prayer have become a drudgery rather than a delight. Get ready to revolutionize your prayer life and approach God in a fresh new way through this powerful curriculum.
Beni Johnson is committed to showing believers that intercessory prayer is one of the most powerful—and joyful—expressions in the Christian life. In these dynamic teaching sessions, you will learn to pray from God’s heart, pray from the place of victory, pray like Jesus, and wage warfare through worship and joy.
To intercede successfully, we need to begin by knowing God’s heart. How He feels and what He thinks about something should direct the way we pray for a situation.
We do not intercede or pray for victory—we pray from victory. This means that, because of the finished work of Christ, we are already victorious. When we pray, we are coming into agreement with what He has already said and already done. There is no begging for something; instead, we are releasing what has been accomplished.
To represent Jesus accurately in our lifestyle—especially through prayer and intercession—we need to have an accurate view of who He really is. Our image of Jesus, either as cold and austere or as happy and joyful, actually shapes how we live, pray, and intercede.
To release God’s solutions through intercession, it is important that we pray from the third realm. In the first and second realms, we are focused more on other things than God’s Presence. In the third realm, God’s Presence and Glory shapes the way we intercede.
As believers control spiritual airways through intercession, they end up taking authority over the atmosphere.
Your joy in the midst of spiritual warfare throws the powers of darkness into confusion, and this confusion ultimately brings about their destruction.
