What is Intercession

<< Previous Index Next >>

What is Intercession?

Daniel 9:1-19


Intercession is the act of going on behalf of someone else who needs help from Almighty God, to be merciful and gracious unto someone else and not self.

1.      It most cases it is prayer for those whose situations or circumstances need the mercy and grace of God’s immediate attention.

2.      Intercession touches the very heart of God, the Ministry of Jesus and the help of the Holy Spirit.

3.      Intercession requires a giving up and giving unto, as act of God’s love, mercy and compassion.

4.      The intercessor must be ready and sensitive to God at all times, totally yielded to Him, and willing to be touched by the infirmities of someone else.

5.      Intercession requires you to become selfless, forgetting about your needs, desires and wants.


Intercession will turn an ordinary church into a growing church.


The purpose of intercession is to:


Secure Healing (James 5:14-16);

Avert Judgment (Numbers 14:11-21);

Insure Deliverance (I Samuel 7:5-9);

Give Blessings (Numbers 6:23-27);

Obtain Restoration (Ezekiel 22; Job 48:8-10);

Encourage Repentance (Romans 10:1-4);

Draw Nearer to God as Abba Father to Change His Mind (Exodus 32:7-14).



Intercession reaches all the way to heaven and throughout all eternity.

In Jeremiah God did not receive prayers because of disobedience and worship of idols.

(Jeremiah 7; 11:7-12; 11:13-18 and 11:19:22).


  1. An intercessor is a born-again believer, who has been washed in the Blood of Jesus:
    1. One who intercedes on behalf of others;·
    2. Who is God fearing and willing to sacrifice his schedule, time and plans for another;
    3. Who does not mind being interrupted by the Holy Spirit for prayer;
    4. Who has a heart after God’s own heart;
    5. Who lives a life of repentance and is sanctified unto God, holy and set apart for God;
    6. An intercessor is confident that God hears his prayers and will answer them.


  1. An Intercessor must have

                                                               i.      As an intercessor, we cannot be a respecter of persons, and we must possess unconditional love!

                                                             ii.      The same God is doing good work in all. 

                                                            iii.      God is not willing that any should perish.

                                                           iv.      It is a divine privilege to be used by God to pray for someone.

                                                             v.      We are our brother’s keeper.


    1. He must have a KNOWLEDGE OF GOD’S WORD

                                                               i.      Praying the Word of God is powerful.

                                                             ii.      It ushers in help from our Angels in heaven that have charge over us.

                                                            iii.      As believers, we must study to show ourselves approved unto God.

                                                           iv.      We must keep our minds transformed and renewed with God’s Word that we not be conformed to this world.

                                                             v.      We must keep the Word of God on our mouth, in our eyes and ears, writing it on the tablets of our hearts.

                                                           vi.      The Word of God says in Isaiah 34:16 to seek out the book of the Lord and read. We must read to know what to say.

                                                          vii.      We must meditate so we can believe what we speak.

                                                        viii.      We must speak to release the power.

                                                           ix.      Knowledge of God’s Word is the only way to know your blood-bought rights and authority against the devil.


  1. Nine (9) Attributes of an Intercessor…
    1. ADVOCACY - Being an Advocate for others  – Willing to go in another person’s place and plead their case before God, acting like Jesus;   Matthew 23:37  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, [thou] that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gatheblack thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under [her] wings, and ye would not!
    2. ABANDONMENT - Being willing to Abandon self – Willing to abandon all self-interest about what is being prayed; 
    3. ACCEPTANCE - Being willing to Accept others – Willing to accept the assignment to pray for someone that you do not even like;
    4. AWARENESS - Being Aware of the needs of others – Willing to be sensitive, and look beyond the person to make it happen for someone else;
    5. ACCOUNTABILITY - Being Accountable for the results – Willing to risk placing yourself in the position of fulfilling the need if God will not;  Exodus 32:32  Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin—; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.   Romans 9:3  For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:  
    6. AGONIZING - Being willing to bear the Agony of others – Willing to bear the hurts of others and feel what they feel. Jesus was touched by our infirmities;   Matthew 8:16-17  When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with [his] word, and healed all that were sick:  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare [our] sicknesses.
    7. AVAILABILITY - Being Available to the work of intercession – Willing to always be available for God; holy, submissive, yielded, and humble. The world looks for ability. God only needs availability He can enable and equip;
    8. ABIDING - Abiding in Christ    John 15:5  I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is witheblack; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned.  7  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
    9. AUTHORITY - Praying with Authority – Willing to go boldly before the Throne of God without begging, understanding the authority that belongs to the born-again believer.


  1. Examples of Intercessors…
    1. Moses - Exodus 32:11-13
    2. Paul - Colossians 1:9-12
    3. Joshua - Joshua 7:6-7 And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face before the ark of the LORD until the eventide, he and the elders of Israel, and put dust upon their heads.  And Joshua said, Alas, O Lord GOD, wherefore hast thou at all brought this people over Jordan, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? would to God we had been content, and dwelt on the other side Jordan!
    4. Jehoshaphat - II Chronicles 20:5-13
    5. Isaiah - II Chronicles 32:20
    6. David - Daniel 9:3-19
    7. Christ - John 17:1-26
    8. Rees Howells – Welsh Revival

                                                               i.      Many were being saved

                                                             ii.      But they were slipping back into the world

                                                            iii.      Rees and others were concerned and prayed

                                                           iv.      God developed Rees Howells into an intercessor

                                                             ii.      His family was suffering
