Our website foundational bible verse is:

'Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labour in vain.'  (Psalm 127v1)

And more recently: For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes"   in Christ.’ (2 Corinthians 1:20)

Ευχόμαστε ο Κύριος να σας οδηγήσει στο να βρείτε τι είναι χρήσιμο για σας ιδιαίτερα από αυτή.


Η ομάδα συνεδριάζει για να προσευχηθεί τρεις φορές την εβδομάδα, 9πμ-12 το μεσημέρι στη Λάρνακα (εκτός αργιών). Την Τρίτη το πρωί για τους πρόσφυγες και την Κύπρο, την Τετάρτη το πρωί για το Ισραήλ και την Παρασκευή το πρωί για την Κύπρο. Περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες: iforcy@outlook.com

 

Είμαστε εδώ για να ενθαρρύνουμε προσευχή για την Κύπρο πάνω σε τακτική βάση. 

Δοκιμάστε τις διάφορες δυνατότητες από το Μενού στο πάνω μέρος της ιστοσελίδας.  Ιδιαίτερα την εκλογή ‘Πρόσφατη Ενημέρωση Προσευχής’. Το θεμελιώδες εδάφιο για την ιστοσελίδα μας είναι:

 «Αν ο Κύριος δεν οικοδομήσει Οίκο, μάταια οικοδομούν οι οικοδομούντες»  (Ψαλμός 127 εδ.1)

Και πιο πρόσφατα: «Διότι, ανεξάρτητα από το πόσες υποσχέσεις έχει κάνει ο Θεός, είναι« ναι »στον Χριστό». (2 Κορινθίους 1:20)


An interpretation of Isaiah 62 verses 6-7a is found below...interesting.


'I have set intercessors on your walls who shall cry out to God day and night for the fulfilment of His promises.'

 

The meaning of 'Intercessor'

Intercession is an activity in prayer which causes a response in the heart of God to meet those who are the object of the prayer. It is a selfless act on behalf of others and motivated by love for God and for people.  People who intercede are intercessors.

 

The great Intercessor is the Lord Himself, for example when there was no-one else who could bring about a change in Israel (Isaiah 59v16; Ezekiel 22v30, also Hebrews 7v25). Yet He also has His people populating the earth who can make a difference through their intercessions on behalf of others in His name.


‘Intercession’ in the Old Testament Hebrew word ‘pagah’ means, ‘to encounter, to meet, reach, make intercession, entreat’. It is a strong word: ‘to assail one, to strike upon one with petitions’, ‘to rush on someone with hostile violence’, ‘to strongly urge upon someone a request’, perhaps reflected in the persistent widow of Luke 18v1-8.

 

‘Intercession’ in the New Testament Greek word ‘Entugchano’ means, ‘to light upon a person or a thing, fall in with, hit upon a person or a thing’. It is active and strong.  (In the New Testament Greek word ‘enteuxis’ it means,’a falling in with, a meeting with, a coming together’. This is more of a conversation or conference on a matter.)


In 1 Timothy 2v1, Paul exhorts intercessionary prayer. Perhaps God is calling you to stand in the gap on behalf of others? It is a ministry which is not in the limelight, but precious to God. Our monthly Prayer Updates for Cyprus on this website will give you direction and food for thought and prayer. God bless you!

So, in summary, before the throne of God, we plead, mediate, intercede and stand in the gap on behalf of other people and situations.. ..as does Jesus for us! 

(Hebrews 7v24-25) '...because Jesus lives for ever, he has a permanent priesthood. Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

Job 16v19-20: Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. 20 My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; 21 on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend.

 See also: 1 Samuel 12v23; 1 Kings 18v36-37; Luke 12; Matthew 5v44; 1 Timothy 2v1, Psalm 106v23 & v30.

“Intercessory prayer isn’t only submitting our list of our requests to God, but the willingness to go out and be available if God wants to use me in answering them. It is an expression of our relationship with God and with others.”

 

Jesus taught us from his own example that at times he would have been found   “...crying aloud  and shedding tears...” (Hebrews 5:7)

During His life on earth, Jesus was a true Intercessor, always standing in the gap. He still intercedes in Heaven for His beloved servants. “The word “intercede” comes from the Latin “inter” meaning “between” and “ced” meaning “go”. So it literally means “go between”. The Hebrew word for intercede is “hifgia”. Yuval Shomron from Jerusalem says, “The root behind the Hebrew “hifgia”, or intercede, is “paga”, which means “touched”. The same root is in used “pigua” which is the Hebrew word for a terrorist attack. The only way someone can actually intercede is to lay their lives down for someone else. When we intercede for one another, our chief purpose is to fill in those gaps (for Israel) and hold up (Israel) so the enemy can’t gain an advantage over them. Likewise, when we fail to intercede for one another, we’re virtually giving the key to that person’s spiritual house to his/her enemies for them to wreak havoc.              .
