The Power of Remembrance in Intercession

“I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” Psalms 77:11-12

There is such a powerful theme of remembrance in Scripture. God instructed the Israelites to build family rhythms, feasts and celebrations around the stories of old. Rocks were stacked in memorial in significant places of history so that every time a father would pass by with his children, he could remind the next generation of what God had done and the torch they were meant to carry for the generation after them.

While we live in a time of significant opposition, when evil is called good and good evil, there is encouragement for us as intercessors in the living Word of God. When we study the Word of God in its entirety, we are reminded that nothing is new under the sun, that God never changes, and that He will and always shall respond to a people who fast and cry out to Him with their whole heart.

When a woman finds out she’s pregnant, she often shifts her nutrition and lifestyle to promote the health of her baby. We, like that pregnant woman, are carrying God-sized vision for our families, communities and nation. Let’s incubate these promises in the nurturing environment of testimony and believe God for the greatest outpouring we’ve ever seen in the months ahead.

Prayer: God, thank you for what you’ve already done. By Your grace, I set my heart to remember your deeds and my mouth to declare Your testimony. What you’ve done before, you’ll do again, and the latter rain will be greater than the former! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
