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.

Hi there,

Prayer for my son Daniel to excel in his college classes in mechanical engineering degree program at ISU. Healing for him from strabismus and injured pituitary causing insufficient hormones which affects his health and functioning. Restoration of his finances after having to get so many student loans as I cannot provide due to being unable to work due to multiple brain injuries.

For my dad Stan who will be 91 this Thurs 1/16 healing of his throat Edith greatly impacts his ability to swallow. And healing of his heart valve. And financial restoration as he’s kept us afloat these past six years while I’m still battling to get disability benefits income. He’s taken on massive debt doing this. We are really struggling now.

For my brother Stan Jr for healing from schizophrenia symptoms and to keep his apt after hoarding habit and need to get his apt professionally cleaned out.

For my brother Joe for financial restoration for everything he’s given to get me healing treatments that health insurance won’t cover yet and many many other things he’s done for us. Even providing funds for us to give each other gifts for Christmas. We need miraculous breakthroughs now. It’s way past the 11th hour for us in our needs.

Requesting fervent prayers for my family and I for my second SSDI case administrative judge hearing tomorrow morning. I’ve been waiting almost six years now. Also for my work comp case which the hearing was Sept 2018. Yes almost 16 months ago and no decision has been given yet. The lack of my income has devastated three generations of my family as I used to be the primary caregiver and breadwinner for us. Due to six brain injuries with complications and other injuries from various accidents I am debilitated and cannot work. We need approval in my cases now. We are at our wits end in all this. We are worse off now than we’ve been in decades. I’ve had much prayer already and much prophecy but still waiting on miraculous breakthroughs in healing and finances for each member of our family. It’s been way too much for way too long for us to handle anymore. I’m still not hearing the Lord clearly for myself and my family but others have. I don’t know what else to do. I’m very worn out in all this.
