In this message I'm going to dispel many of your ideas about intercessors. Of who they are and what they look like. I believe it's a calling for every believer. We're going to walk through the gospel and how Jesus is our great intercessor and how he's inviting you into the same ministry of intercession. I hope it blesses you. — Corey Russell
We are in need of a move of God in our nation and I believe Jesus is returning us as His people back to His feet back to our first love. He is our obsession. He is worthy of our lives, laid down before his feet. Luke chapter 7 verse 36, talks about two types of responses to the Lord when He comes into our houses. My prayer is that a generation of rises that rightly loves rightly responds to His presence. It is the answer for our hour. I pray you’re stirred, moved, and provoked to first love.
Tears = Our Pain. We bring our pain to Him.
Kisses = Our Passion. Bring our passions to Him.
