The Preparation and Progression in Intercession

“... whatever you ask the Father in my name He may give it to you.” John 15:16

 

Intercession (intervention or mediation), a go- between requires the right heart and the right motive, by one called by God. Jesus forever lived to make intercession for us – Heb. 7:25.

How to Intercede:

According to the will of God – love God completely

Have great faith – expect God to move

Don’t take God’s glory

Expect to be in warfare

A change of lifestyle

Be specific in intercession

Know and apply the promises of God

Love everyone, especially the enemies

Wait for the great intercessor – Holy Spirit

Webster says prayer is an earnest request or wish; but it is simply an act of making a supplication (appeal, request, and plea) to GOD,  according to our faith and belief in Him.
