Intercessory Prayers

Prayer is talking to God.

intercessory prayer is the act of praying on behalf of others.
Christians are to come to God on behalf of others in a heartbroken and repentant attitude, recognizing their own unworthiness and with a sense of self-denial to pray for others.

In praying for others, you are indirectly also praying for yourself "he that waters shall be watered himself by the Lord proverb 11:25"
when you stand in the gap for others, you will always have God's favor upon you
When we live unselfishly, then we find the joy of the Lord. Whatsoever we do to the least of His brethren; we do to Him.

By praying for others you are deepening the depth of compassion in your heart towards others.”you become more compassionate to others”

“When one person prays for others, the person praying is more likely to think of others, take the time to listen to them, and be a part of their lives. Offering others support and encouragement can deepen relationships and give a person a sense of meaning and purpose separate from themselves and their own lives. By saying a prayer for someone else, it can benefit both people”.


I believe when we pray for others; God works a softness and tenderness that was not there before in our hearts. This is because we are talking to the One who is all mercy, all beauty, all powerful, all kind and all loving. When we pray to Him, He changes us and makes us like Himself.

Note this truth:
your prayer can save a soul today

Your prayer can heal someone today

Your prayer today can heal a broken marriage

Your prayer can bring salvation to someone else’s life

Your prayer today can change the life of someone else

Your prayer today can bring you closer to God than you can ever imagine

Try writing down a few names today, start praying for them and see if God will not honor your prayers.

(Instead of talking about people, why don’t you pray for people “Joyce Meyer”)
