In my opinion, people depend too much on other people praying for them. One of the many things I learned from my horror experience with Trinity Broadcasting is to stop calling prayerlines, stop asking so called “lay ministers” or “intercessors” to pray with me, and stop discussing any of my personal issues with anyone because it will only cause more harm. The Bible says,

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18:20

While it is good to have people praying with you, most of the people who you think are Christians taking your call, listening to your problems, and placed in positions to pray with others are not even genuine Christians themselves so instead of receiving the comfort of asking the Lord to intervene in your situation you have just invited the devil to intervene. These people so often go yapping to others about your personal issues which were meant to be between you and the Lord only. When the devil intervenes he will destroy what you were praying for the Lord to bless. The pain and destruction created will be unbearable. It would be wiser if we all entrusted the Lord more and stopped looking to others to pray with us. People gather in herds to ministry services and even wait in long lines just to get someone to pray with them. At what point are people going to wake up and say “What is wrong with this picture?” Most of the time what is going on is phony business at that.

Unless you know someone personally who is a good and trusted Christian friend (which is extremely rare to find in these end times) to share your personal issues with and to pray together then it would be wiser to keep everything between you and the Lord. -Admin-

As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Acts 13:2 (NKJV)

A friend asks you to pray for her deteriorating marriage—you really do not know how to pray.

A telephone call comes in the night with distressing news about your father’s illness—the words are lost in tears.

When you do not know what to say, how to pray, or what the needs are, the Holy Spirit is your greatest ally.

In His omniscience—He knows the need.
In His omnipotence—He is able to help.
In His omnipresence—He is involved in their lives.

The Holy Spirit also knows the mind of the Father. He can pray according to the will of God for every person, in every circumstance. Your part is to present the person or petition to the Father, admitting your ignorance and helplessness.

You must also deeply desire God’s answer for the dilemma. When you do, the Spirit of God can take your vague requests and intercede before the Father on others’ behalf (and yours). If something has baffled or perplexed you, trust in the supernatural, intercessory ministry of the Holy Spirit.
