Why Should I Pay for Prayer?

Why Should I Pay for Prayer?

By Liz Robinson

WISE prayer provides many services which can add great value to your life. Jesus said in Luke 10:7 that a “laborer is worthy of his hire.” WISE prayer is targeted, frequent and consistent by a trained intercessor who loves God and His people, loves the truth, has no tolerance for the enemy, is knowledgeable in the Word of God and operates with power in the gifts of the Holy Spirit according to 1 Corinthians 12:8-10 such as word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues and interpretation of tongues.

WISE intercessors who labor to bring these services forth in excellence are compensated for their time, energy and expertise. They stand in the gap and go on the front lines of battle for you to get God’s strategies and to agree with Him for His will – His best to be done in your life.

Let’s look at the way prayer and other services match up to enrich our lives:

    Ditto! That was well said. :-) Never thought of these comparisons before but they are excellent metaphors to describe the impact of prayer and intersession on our lives and why we need them!

    Blessings to you!
