When We Pray for Others

This came from Jean's blog.

"When we pray for others,

the Spirit of God works

in the unconscious domain

of their being that we know nothing about,

and the one we are praying for knows nothing about,

but after the passing of time,

the conscious life of the one prayed for

begins to show signs of unrest and disquiet.

We may have spoken until we are worn out,

but have never come anywhere near,

and we have given up in despair.

But if we have been praying,

we find on meeting them one day

that there is the beginning of a softening in an inquiry

and a desire to know something.

It is that kind of intercession

that does most damage to Satan's kingdom.

It is so slight, so feeble in its initial stages

that if reason is not wedded to the light of the Holy Spirit,

we will never obey it,

and yet it is that kind of intercession

that the New Testament places most emphasis on."

~~Oswald Chambers
