When the Judge Samuel stood before the people Israel he declared, "Far be it from me that I might sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and right way." (I Sam 12:23). Samuel felt an unction to continue to stand in intercession for God's chosen people. The greatest stand of any person called and anointed of God is the stand of intercession. Intercession is going before God to stand for a people, declaring the will of God in the presence of God and agreeing with God for His will to be in His people so that it might done in the earth.
With this same mandate and unction the President of the National Primitive Baptist Convention Elder Doctor Bernard C. Yates, the pastor of the Zion Hope Primitive Baptist Pensacola Florida, has called the people of this convention to gather in intercession and petition. This morning at 7:00 a.m. God caused a people to assemble in the Great Lakes Center of the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Dearborn Michigan and stand in the presence of God to cry out for His favor and function to manifest this week.
Led by Elder Benjamin Adams, the pastor of the St John Primitive Baptist Church in Clearwater Florida and the Chairman of the Board of Evangelism and Missions National Primitive Baptist Convention the people gathered to intercede in the Great Lakes Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Dearborn Michigan for President Yates, Vice President Duke; the Senior pastor of the New Jerusalem Primitive Baptist Church Miami Florida, and the leaders of the convention. We interceded for the people of the convention and the various needs represented.
We took our stand and hell knows that we are present in Dearborn to tear down its strongholds in this city and region. But then heaven knows that we are here as God descended in the midst of His people pleased with our faith and function as intercessors
Led by Elder Benjamin Adams, the pastor of the St John Primitive Baptist Church in Clearwater Florida the priests of God called on God for His protection, His power, His plans, His provisions to show themselves in the people. In one voice, in unity we prayed for President Yates, Vice President Duke, the leadership of the convention, the people and various needs.
We took our stands as the army of God declaring the pulling down of strongholds, demonic strategies, and the principalities that operate in Dearborn and Detroit. We made our presence known in hell and in the heavens. Every morning we will gather this week to build the stronghold of God; the stronghold of unity and agreement. And destroy the stronghold of hell. A convention that prays is a convention that glorifies God and terrifies hell.
