Intercessory prayer is where a person stands in the gap for another person and pleads with God (on their behalf) through persistent prayer. God wants us to stand in the gap for each other in prayer. Jesus Christ is an example of intercessory prayer because he stood in the gap between God and humanity. Therefore, as prayer intercessors, we can ask others to pray for our needs or over stressful situations. Jesus Christ, Himself is always interceding for us (Romans 8:34).
Intercessory prayer requires a person to take on the burden of those who are going through difficult situations or trials. It is where the intercessor begins to pour out their heart for others. It is a powerful tool we can share with each other.
