Among the most important weapons in the arsenal of any church or indi¬vidual Christian is an effective ministry of intercession, prayer, and fast¬ing. Like the vestibule of the church in which we hang our outer garments before entering the main sanctuary, intercession, prayer, and fasting stand as the vestibule of the Spirit, as those who have been called to this special ministry find themselves ushered into the presence of God to stand in the gap and make up the hedge against the enemy and his intent against the church and its membership.
They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ Matthew 24:44-45
