Hello Honourable,

Wow, the overview of our Bible Study this week was truly interactive and impactful. You can also go through the summary below to help you stay connected with God’s word.

THE HEART OF AN INTERCESSOR (OVERVIEW)

Intercession is speaking to God about somebody or something else. Prayer is enforcing God’s agenda on earth. Things just don’t happen; prayer is God’s way of allowing man the great privilege of partnering with Him to enforce His agenda on this side of heaven.

WHO SHOULD BE AN INTERCESSOR

Every Christian, therefore, should aspire to be an intercessor. You can’t just be talking about yourself before God, you should have someone else or something or projects that you can talk to God about.

Our needs, struggles and situations are so small in the bigger picture of God’s agenda. So, your life is too small to be all about you. Every Christian is qualified to be an intercessor. The Holy Spirit can help us to have God’s perspective over things and carry out the business of God on earth which includes praying for others (Romans 8:26).

FOUNDATION OF AN INTERCESSOR

Love is the fabric, motive and foundation of everything we do in the kingdom and the foundation of an intercessor. An intercessor, therefore, needs love to be able to pray for others.

  1. He or she must be a student of the Word
  2. Must be in the spirit
