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 have been struggling with my faith - after studying and learning about other religions I have let doubt and fear take over what used to be a very strong faith Catholic faith. I just do not know what is truth anymore, and wonder why God would make us have to decide what is truth in religion, when there are so many versions out there - many christianity versions, islam, indiginous, hindu, etc...

Please pray that Our Creator will reveal his truth to me in a way that I cannot mistake for my own thoughts or ideas.

Please pray for:

Poland, the Church in the USA & Canada & Great Britain – Pray for repentance and cleansing of the Church.

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),

I ask for prayers...

Healing... Inner healing for my sons, healing of their faith, healing on their trust and love in our Lord. The tragic and sudden death of their Father has destroyed their hearts, pushing God away, anything to do with God.. Mass, confession breaks my heart.

They hold on to the pain to the extent of hurting themselves to be with their father. Please help me pray.

also, ask for a special intention, freedom from captivity, no more weekends as of today, we believe, we need a miracle!. Jobs, School placements, right decisions... Give them wisdom, send right people to guide them, Godly people Lord. And for me, Lord gives me wisdom, strength, more faith, courage to handle all that you send my way. May I do not complain My Lord... and just accept it. Give me compassion and mercy towards everyone Lord. Conversion of my biological father (i never met him) He has terminal cancer a couple of months left. May He find our Lord and repent.

Thank you
