INTERCESSION


We acknowledge that there is no greater foundation for all ministry we undertake than storming heaven in humble and child-like intercession.  God’s heart is moved to act when his people cry out to him. The Father loves it when we, his children, come to him and ask him to work on our behalf. The word “Intercede” comes from the Latin “inter” which means “between,” and “ced” which means “go.” Literally “intercede” means “go between.” Intercessors are those who are “go betweens” between the Lord and his people.

What is an Encounter Intercessor?

An Encounter Intercessor is someone who is committed to the intercession of Encounter Ministries and the missions God calls us into whether foreign or domestic.  Each month our lead intercessor emails our Encounter Intercessors with the prayer needs of the ministry.  We also acknowledge that God has often revealed prophetic insight and revelation to our intercessors and we ask our intercessors to communicate any prophetic revelation to our lead intercessor that will be communicated to the Encounter leadership.

I ask for prayer for my youngest son, Sam who is 27, single and living with me. He suffers from depression, anxiety and fear of the future. He is in severe grief after losing his father, my husband, 8 years ago. Their relationship was never healed and there are deep painful wounds there from even from the womb. Please pray that he would be given the divine gift of faith that would open the doors to his healing. He is a wonderful person and needs to be set free from what torments him.

Many thanks,

Gail

Please pray for me. I have kidney failure, high blood pressure, a skin disorder that makes me look like a discolored monster with no hair. Pray that all of my kids are more compassionate. I desperately need my disability to be immediately approved. We are at the risk of losing things. Please agree with my prayer is for my husband to communicate or just talk to me.

For us to be healthy enough to work in the church again. Pray for his physical healing he had a light stroke. But is okay but seems like he rather be alone. My skin condition makes me look like I have snakeskin. It's hurtful who wants to be with a snake looking person. God promises us with long life. Please pray for victory in all of our lives. Thank you so much.

Please pray for my sister Sarah Keith. She has stage 4 breast cancer which has spread to the bones, as well as schizophrenia, and diabetes that has caused her to go blind and be unable to walk for the last two years. The situation now is that the medics are advising her to have her infected toe cut off, but she is refusing, as she is too scared and believes she will be healed. The longer she leaves it, the more the infection spreads and the more she will have to cut off, unless she receives a healing. From the point of view of the world, her cancer is incurable, the bone in her toe has died, and her eyes are also incurable. It is really bad news, but it is good news if she receives a healing, as nobody could possibly deny it to be a miracle.

Please, please pray for my marriage, my husband and me. My past transgressions, along with the deaths of three family members and two previously failed marriages has my husband's heart so hard. He is filled with anger and hatred toward God, me and others that I do not even know about. He just recently said he did not love me the way a husband should love a wife, but he does love me. Pray that he will reach out to God to be forgiven and healed and that he keep God at the center of his life. Please pray for me that I will continue to grow my relationship with God and I have the wisdom to hear Him when He speaks to me. Lastly, please pray for our marriage as I feel in my heart that once Jeff and I get our walk with God right that our marriage will be saved. I am standing strong for my marriage.

[We read] In the King James Bible, Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none."

O God, please help us and teach us to build a wall [of prayer] around the USA, Canada, Poland and Great Britain. Are you ready to stand in the gap, where God is the Helper and Teacher?

Please pray that Great Britain, Poland, the USA/Canada would overcome for: (The Acts 26.18).

* Poland, pray for freedom and saving faith of Jesus Christ as the Saviour and the Lord

* the Church in the USA & Canada & Great Britain – Pray for repentance and cleansing of the church - Matt. 3.12 "Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

* my family:

1. Stir up the hearts of my family for ministry for me, my wife Dorothy, our daughter Ann, and our sons Peter and Daniel - "..but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" Joshua 24.15

2. Pray for God's will, wisdom, discernment, revelation and recognition for me and my family; I ask God for Edmund’s work situation, God's direction for Edmund , Dorothy, Peter, Daniel and Ann (also God's protection over the company where she works),

3. God's order in my work. I ask God for great wisdom at my work. Blessings and the knowledge of Jesus Christ for my bosses. Thank God for the continuation of my work.
