Jesus linked greater effectiveness in casting out demons to prayer and fasting.
He spoke of the need for prayer and fasting when ministering to certain kinds of demonized people Mt In other words, the rigorous lifestyle of an intercessory missionary is one that embraces the first and second commandments to love God and others. She was a token of what will happen across the nations during the generation in which the Lord returns. Now there was one, Anna, a prophetess. She was of a great age, and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity; and this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
Lk — Notice that Anna was a prophetess v. The grace for prophetic ministry, intercession, and evangelism came together in one woman.
Anna was widowed after living with her husband for seven years v. At eighty-four years old—approximately sixty years later—she was still ministering to the Lord in much prayer with fasting. Anna stayed faithful in her calling to long hours of prayer! What a remarkable woman! Anna represents those with the grace to sustain long hours of prayer for many years.
Translation of the Weekday Amidah
Anna is the most extreme example of the intercessory missionary lifestyle in the New Testament. She probably spent more hours in prayer each day than we ask our intercessory missionaries to do. In this very hour, the Lord is wooing those with a heart and calling like Anna to the full-time occupation of worship and prayer. He is personally appointing and setting them into their places.
These individuals need to be called forth, recognized, and released by their leaders to obey their God-given mandate. Shall not God bring about justice for His elect, who cry to Him day and night? He will bring about justice for them. When the Son of Man comes [second coming] , will He find faith on the earth?
In verse 8, Jesus connected the call to night-and-day prayer to the timing of His return to the earth. It is important to notice that this parable was given in conclusion to what He had just taught about the end times in Luke — In other words, He connected His release of justice in the earth during the end times to night-and-day prayer, and, in verse 8, Jesus referred to the generation in which He returns. We find important information in the Old Testament about the full-time occupation of singers who ministered to God night and day.
David was the first one in Scripture to establish the full-time occupation of a worshiper 1 Chr. These are the singers. David established 4, musicians and 4, gatekeepers 1 Chr. David set into place about 10, intercessory missionaries. They were Levites—some were singers and musicians, and others were gatekeepers. The gatekeepers took care of the buildings and finances and carried out many other activities to support the ministry to God in the temple. In our context, this speaks of those who help in financial or event management, janitorial or organizational service, running seminars, etc.
The singers were employed in the work day and night, and thus were freed from other duties. In other words, they did not have another job outside their temple responsibilities. Their job was hard work. God commanded David to establish this ministry of night-and-day worship. It required a significant amount of work and was very expensive. David insisted on making this costly investment of time and money, knowing that the Lord had commanded it and that the God of Israel is worthy of such praise.
In the generations that followed, when Israel went astray, God raised up spiritual reformers with a vision to restore worship as David had commanded it. And, according to the order of David his father , [Solomon] appointed the divisions of the priests for their service, the Levites for their duties to praise and serve before the priests as the duty of each day required…for so David the man of God had commanded. Then the Levites. Jehoiada appointed the oversight of the house of the Lord to. Then [Josiah] said to the Levites.
Ezra — Both the singers and the gatekeepers kept the charge of their God. In the days of Zerubbabel and in the days of Nehemiah all Israel gave the portions [financial] for the singers and the gatekeepers, a portion for each day. The Lord has led many throughout history to establish night-and-day prayer ministries. Although it is clear that the Holy Spirit has not emphasized this calling to the whole Body of Christ through the 2, years of church history, He has clearly called some to this ministry.
Thus, we see a witness of night-and-day prayer down the centuries, a testimony that God desires this kind of extravagant ministry from His people. Throughout 2, years of church history, intercessory missionaries have been known by different titles. However, we see the biblical values behind this occupation in that they did the work of missions from a lifestyle of being deeply engaged in prayer, worship, and the Word. It became an influential missions-sending community, famous for its choral psalmody and unceasing prayer. Most who embraced this calling in medieval times were monks, priests, or nuns who lived in monastic communities.
He organized rotating choirs into shifts to create uninterrupted prayer and worship twenty-four hours a day.
He first organized this perpetual praise near the Euphrates River, where it lasted for twenty years. They sang hymns and doxologies throughout the night and day. In AD , St. Patrick returned to Ireland having been enslaved on the island previously to preach the gospel. In the twelfth century, the monk Jocelin reported that Patrick had come to a valley on the shores of the Belfast Lough where he and his comrades beheld a vision of heaven.
Approximately one hundred years later, Comgall established Bangor monastery in that exact valley. These monks, through practicing continual prayer and worship, were stirred to evangelize the lost wherever they went. They were sent out from Bangor as missionaries to Europe. Wherever they settled, they first established constant praise and adoration to God, and their mission work flowed from a foundation of prayer. These intercessory missionaries were sent to preach the gospel throughout Europe, leading multitudes to Jesus.
Prayer activity sheets
Examples abound. For instance, Colombanus set out from Bangor with twelve brothers to plant monasteries that combined prayer and mission work throughout Switzerland. Another, St. Martin, practiced continual antiphonal worship and established monasteries throughout Gaul France. Around AD , in Switzerland, Abbot Ambrosius organized choirs of monks who sang the Psalms in rotating shifts, continuing day and night.
They continued for nearly four hundred years, until around AD , impacting monasteries all over France and Switzerland. These intercessory missionaries were effective in preaching the gospel and impacting many for Jesus. Thus the Cluny community was catalytic in raising up intercessory missionaries who established houses of prayer as monastic communities, doing the work of the kingdom. Just after AD , Bernard, together with his seven hundred monks in Clairvaux, France, organized into day-and-night prayer that continued for many years, resulting in a dynamic release of evangelism through signs and wonders across Europe.
Bernard promoted continual prayer; reports from visitors to the monastery at Clairvaux speak of the monks singing their prayers through the night and working in silent meditation through the day.
In , Count Zinzendorf, a young and wealthy German nobleman, committed his estate in Germany to twenty-four-hour-a-day prayer ministry. At that time, Zinzendorf gave up his court position to lead this new ministry. From the prayer room at Herrnhut came a missionary zeal that has hardly been surpassed in Protestant history.
What God Promises Those Struggling With Unemployment
By , over two hundred missionaries had been sent out from this small community at Herrnhut. These were the first Protestant intercessory missionaries.
Thou art sowing a seed that shall, in due time, give rise to thousands of harvests. Thou art planting a tree that shall eternally put forth leaves and blossoms and yield fruits, and whose shadow shall day by day grow in magnitude. With bowed head I recognize that I too am but an instrument in greater Hands, and I rejoice in the knowledge. Benjamin Jowett, who had hailed the Faith, in his conversation with his pupil, Prof. Search out their books, and let their glorious, peace-bringing, love-creating words and lessons sink into your hearts as they have into mine… Seek them and be the happier.
He is the power behind all beings… His is the voice within us that shows us good and evil. But mostly we ignore or misunderstand this voice. Those voices sent to us had to become flesh, so that with our earthly ears we should be able to hear and understand. We pass on the Message from mouth to mouth, and all those we give it to see a light suddenly lighting before them, and much that was obscure and perplexing becomes simple, luminous and full of hope as never before.
That my open letter was a balm to those suffering for the Cause, is indeed a great happiness to me, and I take it as a sign that God accepted my humble tribute. The occasion given me to be able to express myself publicly was also His work, for indeed it was a chain of circumstances of which each link led me unwittingly one step further, till suddenly all was clear before my eyes and I understood why it had been.
Thus does He lead us finally to our ultimate destiny …Little by little the veil is lifting, grief tore it in two. And grief was also a step leading me ever nearer truth; therefore do I not cry out against grief! But I pray God not to take me away yet, for I still have a lot of work to do.
