I know some faithful intercessors who rarely pray for the sick. They live only in a “waiting mode” for a future breakthrough, instead of a “go mode” to see miracles today. The Lord wants us to operate in both modes. Prayer that Protects Us from Burnout Prayer positions us to be energized to love God and to love people, serving as a buffer against spiritual burnout. Remaining connected to Jesus at the heart level is the lifeline that enables us to sustain ministry in healing the sick and doing works of justice and compassion for decades.
Jesus instructed us, “He who abides in Me, and I in Him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing” (Jn. 15:5). Prayer is a place of connectedness with God that equips us to walk out the first great commandment in first place in our lives, knowing that it will overflow in love towards others, so that we may also walk out the second commandment (Mt. 22:37–39). Intimacy with God We grow in intimacy with God when we come to understand that we are His beloved, by encountering God as our Father and Jesus as our Bridegroom King.
As the Bride of Christ, we are in a privileged position to experience God’s heart and affection by knowing that He cherishes us as a bridegroom cherishes his bride (Isa. 62:4-5). This message of the Bridegroom identity of Jesus includes the revelation of His emotions that He feels for us. In simple terms, we understand Jesus, the Bridegroom, not as mostly mad or sad when He thinks about us, but as One whose heart is full of gladness and fiery affections for His people. Jesus is revealed as being filled with tender mercy, gentleness, and patience as He deals with us in our weakness.
