INTRODUCTION:

Just as a review, we said that the Jews were PUZZLED why God was not acting on behalf of the nation, what with all the national threats and turmoil that they were going through, ALBEIT, with ALL THEIR
PRAYERS.

Isaiah the prophet gave them the reasons in ISAIAH 59 and the following chapters.

1.The first reason for UNANSWERED PRAYER is OUR SIN which creates a WALL or BARRIER between us and God!

2.The second reason why God wasn’t showing favor to Israel, was because there was no intercessor, to stand in the gap, by prayer to turn away his wrath! As I mentioned, we need Moses-like people today who will stand in the gap for His church!

Today’s sermon picks up from where it left off, which is intercession, but we will focus on three lessons from Isaiah 62: 6 – 7 and Isaiah 64: 4.

I. THE NEED FOR WATCHMEN
II.THE ROLE OF WATCHMEN: REMEMBRANCERS
III.THE NEED FOR THE WATCHMEN’S PERSISTENT PRAYER
