Who do you have who prays for you? What intercessors are a part of your life? Doug prays every Tuesday for one hour and I know I’m included in that time he spends before God. I recently received a word from Doug that had the unmistakable ring of truth. Let’s not underestimate the power of prayer.

As you’re doing incarnational, missional work, you’re engaged in extending God’s kingdom. There will be spiritual battle. So especially as we are involved in real life-on-life ministry, we need other people to uphold us in prayer. I’m thinking of Aaron and Hur holding up the arms of Moses to win the battle. He was too tired to hold up that staff on his own for so long, but only when the staff was upheld were they winning the battle.

What intercessors do you have who you know consistently support you in prayer? I challenge you to respond to this blog entry with some names… first names only. If you’re having trouble coming up with people, ask for help. You can’t do this on your own.
