Standing in the Gap

Ezekiel 22

30So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.
The prophet Ezekiel is here expressing the need for prayer intercessors who would "stand in the gap" before God on behalf of the needs of His people of that time. It's a privilege we can lift up in prayer the needs of others as we are led by the Holy Spirit. Apart from prayer, standing in the gap means to give your precious time to listen to a sad and frustrated girl; Standing the gap means to avail yourself for the things of God and look at the body of Christ as a whole; Standing in the gap is to seize the moment and being selfless. It can be rather ironic when your supporters told you they will support you, and you realize they are standing so far behind when you turn around. The choice to stand in the gap is not automatic and it has to be learnt. Yes, you have the power to make the difference.
