Are you saddened by the chaos and suffering in the world
for disobedience to God's word? Then you share in God's
desire to pray for someone to receive his mercy for restoration.

The rebellion in the Garden of Eden led to the fall of man and separation from God. It marked the beginning of misery for humanity. But God knew this, so He foreordained Jesus, the eternal High Priest, to pray for our restoration. However, before Jesus, God consecrated godly men and priests to minister to Him and pray for His people on altars in designated places. Over time, however, some of them flouted God's covenants. They also defrauded the people they were to intercede for in the Old Testament. Later, Jesus manifested as the divine sacrificial Lamb, who died on the cross to atone for sin and intercede for our redemption and restoration. He also directed all His believers, not just a select few, to plead for His mercy for others' restoration. God empowers every believer with the Holy Spirit for His service in the Kingdom.

This book, Standing in the Gap, details the genesis of intercession and draws attention to the relevance of intercessory prayers for God's mercy and restoration today.
Readers of this book will learn the following about intercession:

Why God initiated intercessory prayers for sinful man.
All believers in Christ are intercessors, not just a select few, as in the Old Testament.
Godly traits such as holiness and loving obedience boost effective intercession.
The contrasts between the Old Testament seasonal animal sacrifice for intercession and the New Testament model espoused by Jesus.
How intercessors can avoid and overcome prayer hindrances such as disobedience that affect communion with God.
Joyous revival is the main benefit of intercession.
