The Gift of Prayer: Intercession

“Your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.”
Matthew 6:10
Intercession, the act of coming before God on behalf of another or even for ourselves.
Jesus is our great Intercessor. He came to earth to intercede. Mediate forgiveness, healing, and peace between humanity and Father God. Scripture says He always lives to intercede (Hebrews 7:25), standing at the right hand of His Father (Romans 8:34).
As His disciples, His followers, we too have the privilege of interceding on behalf of ourselves, our loved ones, our community, the whole world. Jesus made the Way, by the power of the Holy Spirit, for us to intercede. We can be a part of making the way for His Kingdom to come now, His will to be done now, in the lives of those for whom we intercede.

Today, recognize your Intercessor, by praying for those who need His power, peace, healing and forgiveness in their lives. His Kingdom come, His will be done…
