“O Jerusalem, I have posted watchmen on your walls; they will pray day and night, continually. Take no rest, all you who pray to the Lord. Give the Lord no rest until he completes his work, until he makes Jerusalem the pride of the earth.”
The Lord has placed prayer warriors to stand guard and pray for your needs—to pray for your protection—to pray for God’s will to be completed in your life. Day and night they are called to pray and to take no rest until He has brought forth the promise and purpose He has designed. These prayer warriors are instructed to remind God again and again that you are waiting for what He has promised—for what He has purposed. They are instructed to continually pray for your life to become a praise to God's glory.
Don’t be discouraged. God has called His watchmen—His intercessors—to intercede for you. They do not pray for their own will to be manifested in your life. They do not pray for what they feel, but for what the Holy Spirit has them pray. They stand in the gap—for your protection against that which would try to destroy or discourage you. They pray because they believe in the Savior who has called them, and that He will complete His greatest worth through you.
Are you a good watchman? Be a faithful watchman and pray for those whom God brings to your heart and mind. You are their buffer—their interceder—their intercessor—before the Lord. You are their buffer of protection against which would destroy. Never give up reminding God for their need and for what He has purposed. Give God no rest until they become a praise to God's faithfulness and glory in the earth.
