Dear One,
Giving yourself in prayers for others is the greatest sacrifice a person can make. When I talked about the sacrifice of praise and the sacrifice of thanksgiving, I was talking about sacrificing your time and your voice in prayer time for others.
People don't mind sacrificing time or money for worthy causes, but they refrain from sacrificing themselves and their time in praying for others. It's much easier to give money. It's much more time consuming and requires more devotion to sacrifice your time and voice in intercessory prayers. My children are often trying to find short cuts. There are no short cuts to prayers.
When you realize that your time spent in intercessory prayers can affect the outcome of every problem, every situation, every circumstance, every plan, every invention, every purchase, every decision, every song written, every truth that is taught, everything that happens in the earth, then you will willingly sacrifice your time and voice in praying for yourself, your family and others.
It's easier to give money to some religious institution and feel that you've done your duty. It take a lot of love to sacrifice your time and voice in prayers. In doing that, you chart the course of your life and the lives of others.
Jesus prayed all night on many occasions. He sacrificed for the world. I'm always calling My children into intercessory prayers. Then they can participate in cleansing the earth of demonic works, doing what Jesus did by destroying the works of the devil.
It will bring joy to your heart when you see the results of your intercessions. Then you won't consider it a sacrifice. You will consider it your pleasure because your joy will be full.
Love, God
