Psalm 35:13 “But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom”.
When calamity occurs it is good to have a backup system, consisting of like-minded people who are able to embrace the throne of grace and appeal on our behalf in interception of the attacks which comes in the form of sickness, attacks, ailments, etc.
Getting deep into prayers and fasting are ways to embrace this fight which we are called to be a part. And unless you have experienced the fierce anger and hatred which the adversary has for the body of Christ it is impossible to wage effective warfare on anyone’s behalf.
Unless you have been to valley of the shadow of death, and know that the adversary is not one to play fair and if possible he will take your life without any remorse, especially when your mind is made up to serve God, then you will have a problem engaging in serious warfare to save your fellow Christian’s life.
We all are called into different areas of the body of Christ, but no matter if you are an altar boy or a pastor, it would be wonderful if we are all of the same mind to embrace the love which Christ shares with his Father. Let us pray for each other as we have been directed.
Share the love of God.
