There are many ways to love one’s neighbor, but Intercessory Prayer ‘praying on behalf of other people’ has got to be one of the most powerful...
In prayer we have a “powerful weapon, capable of destroying fortresses” (2 Cor 10:4). That kind of weaponry ‘the power of prayer’ is something God invites us to use as we seek not only personal transformation but the transformation of the world as well.
What is an Intercessor?
An intercessor is one who takes up a “burden” that goes far beyond his or her own needs and intentions. And those who take up the call to intercession come to learn in a deeper way that the sufferings of the present time cannot compare to the joy that will come as God’s purposes unfold.
They learn to trust in the Lord, because they have experienced in prayer how infinitely compassionate God is. Intercessors participate in God’s magnificent plan to raise humanity to share in divine life. This insight moves them to engage in a spiritual battle against the forces that seek to destroy God’s plans.
Are you being called to be an Intercessor?
Imagine that right now, Jesus is in heaven interceding for you, even as he intercedes for the entire world. He also invites us all to join in his priestly intercession so that a might flood of prayer will ascend to the Father’s throne.
Jesus promised; “Amen, I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matt 18:19-20
