SCRIPTURE: And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Intercession is an act of love, and nothing works like love.

Many years ago, Jan Crouch, the wife of Paul Crouch (founders of TBN – Trinity Broadcasting Network) told a heart-touching story. At a certain time in life, she suffered a form of mental condition that defied all manner of treatments.

Then, in one of their programs, while still in that mental condition, she said she saw a little girl shabbily dressed. Obviously, the girl was also having a mental condition.

Jan Crouch said her compassion went for the girl. Even though she had her own condition, she felt more for the girl than for herself. So, she went and embraced the girl and began to pray for her to be healed.

Miraculously, at the end of the prayer, the girl was healed and she (Jan Crouch) was also healed at the same time.

The truth is, if you have been in any form of prison, prison doors can open for you if only you can leave yourself for a while, and face another persons’ problem at the place of prayer. Intercession is an act of love, and nothing works like love. Love is stronger than death, for God Himself is Love (1 John 4:8).

So, when a person prays for someone out of deep love, what he is saying is, “Lord, I am in need but forget my own need and attend to this person first because he seems to have more problems than me. Please help this person”.

Then God would say, “Alright, I will help both of you together”.

My counsel is, make up your mind to pray for those in need even when it is obvious that you have your own challenges.

Remember this: Intercession is an act of love, and nothing works like love.


  1. Ask God to baptise you with the heart of genuine love for others.
  2. Make praying for others part of your schedule.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask for a heart of true love. I receive the grace to intercede for others, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.


QUOTE: Prayers and intercessions are some of the assignments of the priest. And when a person’s garment is filthy, his prayer will not make any difference. Culled from “WHO ARE YOU’’ by Dr Paul Enenche.

AMAZING FACT: Depending on the type of rock, waves either speed up or slow down. If the rock is cold, waves travel quickly. But if rock is hot, waves travel slowly.
