13 A Journey of Faith “Faith such as this is needed in the world today—faith that will lay hold on the promises of God's word and refuse to let go until Heaven hears. Faith such as this connects us closely with Heaven, and brings us strength for coping with the powers of darkness.” ( Prophets and Kings, 157).

19  Intercessory Prayer Principle #2: Pray with Perseverance * *persistence, patience, endurance

20 “... the testing of your faith produces perseverance” (James 1:3). Even when others would try to discourage you from God- ordained intercession, persevere!

21 “... Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus... who endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Heb. 12:1-3, NKJV) Perseverance... Patience... Persistence... Endurance...

22  Intercessory Prayer Principle #3: Pray with Holy Boldnes s

23  Let Us Come Boldly “Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Heb. 4:14, 16, NIV).

24  Praying, Waiting, Working

25 From Tragedy to Triumph “So was the faith of the woman rewarded. Christ, the great life- giver, restored her son to her. In like manner will His faithful ones be rewarded when, at His coming, death loses its sting and the grave is robbed of the victory it has claimed. Then will He restore to His servants the children that have been taken from them by death.” ( Prophets and Kings, 239)

26 “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them” (Heb. 7:25, NKJV).

27  Mere’s Miracle in Fiji “Were not miracles wrought by Christ and His apostles? The same compassionate Saviour lives today, and He is as willing to listen to the prayer of faith as when He walked visibly among men” ( The Great Controversy, 525).

28 It is Well... with My Soul As the Shunammite’s prayer became the prophet’s prayer... so our prayers become the powerful prayers of Christ, the heavenly Intercessor, before the throne of grace. O, let us never weary of interceding for others— or for ourselves!
