The Principles and Practice of Intercession

From Series: Venturing In Faith

Genesis 18:16-33  (ID: 1085)

Grounded in grace, framed in purpose, and prompted and sustained by God, Abraham was committed to being an instrument for God’s glory. In Genesis 18, this meant interceding in prayer on behalf of Sodom. Looking to Abraham as an example, Alistair Begg calls us to the discipline of intercessory prayer. In light of God’s character, and by His grace, we must examine our relationship with Him so that we might exercise this critical ministry.


16Then the men set out from there, and they looked down toward Sodom. And Abraham went with them to set them on their way.
