In the Old Testament, Abraham, Moses, David, Samuel, Hezekiah, Elijah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel were all mediators between God and His people.
In the New Testament, Christ is the ultimate intercessor, and because of this, all Christian prayer becomes intercession, since it is offered to God through and by Christ.
Jesus closed the gap between us and God when He died on the cross.
Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, we can now intercede in prayer on behalf of other Christians or for the lost, asking God to grant their requests according to His will.
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5). “Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us” (Romans 8:34).
Intercessory prayer is the act of praying on behalf of others. Jesus is the ultimate Intercessor. When you submit a prayer request, your prayer will be passed to our various prayer groups within our church. We will pray with you and for you. Your prayer requests will be constant and on going. Confidentiality and privacy are honored.
