SOUND BITES: Something to chew on that is good for the soul™: THE VALUE OF INTERCESSORY PRAYER
I earnestly believe that intercessory prayer surrounds the person with the love of God in a special way. Through prayer we do not so much manipulate God to do our will as we become surrendered instruments through whom God's love can move those who are dear to us.
We usually think of prayer as a means whereby we reach another person through God. But I am suggesting that prayer is a way in which God can flow through us to that other person.
We can all be sending agents for the love of God. I am convinced that in prayer we become channels through whom the passionate love of God flows and engulfs other persons.
The more we pray, the more channels there are for the infinite love of our Lord to flow to, surround, and invade the person we hold up in prayer.
