A Spiritual Barrier


Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. -Jeremiah 29:12 NIV

You can say a quick prayer for someone or something but when you take the time to humble yourself and enter into God’s presence, there’s a different connection.

The word “pray” that’s used in this scripture means to intervene, interpose, or intercede. If you grew up in church, you probably heard the word “intercede” but maybe you never heard the word, interpose. Interpose means, “to put a barrier or obstacle between or in the way of,” What an awesome picture of prayer. John 10:10 says that the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy. But according to 2 Chronicles 7:14, when you humble yourself and pray, your prayers actually become a barrier between the enemy and those for whom you are praying. The power that exists when you connect with God’s Spirit stops the passage of the enemy’s attacks.

Be encouraged today and spend some time in His presence. Humble your heart and invite God’s Spirit to dwell with you. It’s not enough to, “say a prayer” as some people say. Dig deep, go to battle, and place that spiritual barrier between that person and the enemy.
