Pray Without Ceasing -A Believer’s Guide To Effective Intercession by Apostle Stephen A. Garner INTRODUCTION The last several years have been some of the most challenging and yet joyous times of my life. There were days that seemed to be longer than usual, appearing to never come to an end. There were also days when His promises came to pass, SUDDENLY. It was during this time in my life that I discovered the importance of “praying without ceasing”. One of my assignments to the Body of Christ is to activate the saints in fervent prayer and impart a passion in them to pray. Our local church has a charge to build a house of prayer for all people. This is a very daunting task and it demands nothing less than one’s entire focus and commitment. We have seen God do some tremendous things in our local community and in the nations. Because of His faithfulness, I have seen nothing short of the miraculous in my personal life as well. There are many different types of prayers that we can pray and as some may argue; also many ways to pray. Some of these patterns include the prayer of thanksgiving, supplication, forgiveness, renunciation, repentance, salvation, and others. The list is endless. Some believers are limited to praying by those patterns mentioned and this is fine. However, my objective in this manual is to provide you with revelation and insight into my personal journey as an intercessor and provide biblical truths that will help you further your mission in advancing the Kingdom of God. From your personal prayer life to a corporate mandate, prayer is the key to establishing a connection with God. I have learned that when we pray on behalf of others, we truly stir the heart of God. This kind of prayer is called intercession and Christ for ever lives to make intercession. Though our needs are pressing and desires go unmet, as it may seem, we must press on to cry unto the Lord for others. He is moved with great passion and His blessing will surely come upon you. II Chronicles 7:14 declares, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Believers, our first approach to a lifestyle of prayer must be that we humble ourselves (subdue and bring low), pray (make petitions), seek His face (worship) and turn from our wicked ways (repentance). These are the four principles that will help govern us in effective prayer so God can forgive us and heal our land. Saints, the world we live in is based upon whatever we ask the Father to make it or of whatever we fail to ask Him. May a fresh anointing to pray be poured out upon you as you read this manual!
