Intercessory PRAYER . . .
"What is intercessory prayer?"
Quite simply, intercessory prayer is the act of praying on behalf of others. The role of mediator in prayer was prevalent in the Old Testament, in the cases of David, Hezekiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel. Christ is pictured
in the New Testament as the Ultimate Intercessor, and because of
this, all Christian prayer becomes intercession since it is offered to God through and by Christ. Jesus closed the gap between us and God when
He died on the cross. Because of Jesus’ mediation, we can now intercede
in prayer on behalf of other Christians or for the lost, asking God to grant their requests according to His will. “For there is one God and one
mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5). “Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that,
who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding
for us” (Romans 8:34).
God calls all Christians to be Intercessors.
It is God’s desire that every believer be active in intercessory prayer.
What a wonderful and exalted privilege we have in being able to
come boldly before the throne of Almighty God with our prayers
