The Anatomy of Prayer (by Min. Adria Carpenter)

One of my friends wanted to be featured on my blogpost, so this is a brief expository on my friend's study on prayer/intercession. Without further ado, here's Minister Adria Carpenter.

The Anatomy of Prayer deals with prayer as a whole. My name is Adria Carpenter and as a minister and intercessor, I don’t want to just be doing something, but I want to be aware of what it is.  2 Timothy says study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly diving the word of truth. “The Anatomy of Prayer”, was birthed to stimulate people to understand the power that prayer carries.  I pray that this will give you spiritual insight on what an intercessor is.  First, let go to Webster and see what an intercessor is? An intercessor is a person who intervenes on the behalf of another, especially by prayer. I want you focus on the word especially, which means to a great extent, very much. In other words when you think about the word intercession, the first thing that comes to mind is prayer!!!   Prayer is an essential part of an intercessor, but there are many roles that an intercessor can possess.  As I began to do my study on intercessor, I asked God what is an intercessor? The name that was dropped in my spirit was Adam. I was puzzled with this for some time, because I didn’t understand why Adam came to me.  But I was reminded in Matthew 6:33 that says seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and these things shall be added unto you.  I sought God because I knew He wanted to reveal the mystery of His word unto his servant pertaining to my asking what is an intercessor? I studied the book of Genesis focusing my attention on Adam and his role in the beginning of time.  Adam was created from dust of the earth. Genesis 2:15 says The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. However, Genesis 3:1-4 says “now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God has made. He said to the woman, ‘Did God really say, You must not eat from any tree in the garden?’ The woman said to the serpent, ‘we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, You must not eat fruit from the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it or you surely will die.’” This was the first sign when the spirit manipulation took place. Let’s continue in Genesis: When the woman saw that the good for food and pleasing to eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom she took some and ate it. She also took some and gave it to her husband, who was with her and ate it. 

Adam was responsible for being attentive and watching the garden. When you study the scriptures, you don’t see anything about God telling him to pray, because he gave him dominion over every living creature in the earth. Adam was obligated to cover and stay in covenant with what God authorize him to do. Cover- put something such as cloth or lid on top of or in front of in order to protect or conceal it.  

Covenant- an agreement

What are they saying??  Intercessor, Prayer Warrior, Gate Keeper and Garden Watcher the Nation is in need and soliciting the prayer from you.  There will be a continuation of The Anatomy of Prayer Blog to give additional information pertaining to prayer.

I pray that this Revelation was useful and that it blessed your life.
