Prayer Quotes – Allison Shorter

Allison Shorter Quotes

  1. Until we know we are freely loved, giving love away in prayer or intercession or with our teams can be difficult. It can come off with an edge of condemnation and taint our prayers and purity of heart.
  2. As people who stand in the gap for individuals, situations and nations, we need to see them the way God does and let go of our personal opinions and ideas about things.
  3. As we see ourselves as God sees us, we are freed up from striving and we begin to simply enjoy His Presence.
  4. We have all been uniquely created to experience God’s Presence and Kingdom and release it wherever we go.
  5. He longs to talk to His children and show us secrets of the Kingdom.
  6. Jesus is our ultimate intercessor before God, so one way to be more like Jesus is to grow in intercession.
  7. An intercessor stands in the gap for a person or a group of people.
  8. Just like we read the Bible or have fellowship with other believers, walking in creativity can be one more way you develop friendship and connection with God.
  9. Since God is creative, don’t limit Him to one way of communicating with you.
  10. The Holy Spirit longs to talk to you and is talking to you more than you know.
  11. Understanding the language of the Spirit is essential to your connection with God.
  12. Until the Holy Spirit changes our thinking about identity, intercession can also look like gossip.
  13. Every believer has the ability to receive inspiration from God because we are His sheep and we know His voice.
  14. We may be always praying but not seeing results. We may think intercession and prayer are about us and how much we press in or how much time we spend praying, but what we don’t realize is that intercession is about who we are.
  15. We need to be firm and stable in our connection with God and other people so we can pray into things without our own problems getting in the way.
  16. Because God is fun, partnering with Him can be fun.
  17. When we see ourselves the way God sees us and begin walking in our true identity, then we don’t want to compare ourselves to others because are completely happy in who we are.
  18. With the wrong identity, intercession can also look like control or manipulation. We pray out of our flesh and what we want to see happen, not what God wants to see happen.
  19. His Presence is what you want, not results. Results happen in the Presence.
  20. When we are double-minded, we can end up praying multiple-choice prayers. If a man is sick, we may pray for 1.) his miraculous healing, 2.) for God to use the illness to instruct him, and 3.) to comfort him as he dies, all at the same time. Which one do we want God to answer? How do we know if He did answer when we give Him so many options? One of them has to work eventually. So what is God saying? Is He planning to heal this person? Or is it his time to meet God in heaven?
  21. Until we hear from God, praying can feel like a waste of time, mostly because we don’t know what to pray. However, if we know we’ve heard from God, we can pray, intercede, and be at peace. We’ve done our job, and now He will do His.
