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.

Emily was in an accident and in serious condition. Her family has asked for specific prayers: Pray the swelling of the brain stays down; for her blood pressure to stabilize; and no more seizures. Emily has a broken pelvis, collapsed lung, laceration to the kidney, laceration to forehead, and severe bleeding of the brain. They are concerned for the brain right now. There is brain function in the sense she is responding to stimuli, but still is not conscious. They are praying for the swelling to stay down and for brain function. Pray for her miraculous healing.

I broke my jaw in an accident. I'm still having a lot of pain, even though the doctors say the bones have healed. I'm experiencing trigeminal neuralgia-like nerve pain (damaged nerves from the accident). Could you please pray I am set free?

Please pray for my throat gagginess to go away. Free me form the depression, anxiety and panic. Ask God to heal me so that I can live life more fully, be a better wife and mother and let God's light in me to shine. For now, I am in darkness. Being swallowed by the raging waters. I am trying to hold on to God's hand.... but feel like I am drowning. Please pray for healing for all those who suffer from emetophobia and anxiety and panic. Please pray for God to heal my digestive problems, hormone problems and throat problems. And by the grace of God cease my anxiety and panic. Please pray.

I write to you today to ask if you can pray with us for a miracle.

We have a friend, François, who is 28 years old, and who has had a very serious kite-surfing accident on Monday around noon.

He has many injuries including broken ribs, a fractured liver, a damaged kidney, he has multiple fractures around the basin and his sacrum and has a very important head trauma.

His condition has gone worse and worse for the past two days. Yesterday evening the doctors found a second area of intense bleeding inside his head and operated a second time to release the pressure on his brain cavity, but without success.

The operation did not go well and the doctors had to put him in an artificial coma as well as the natural one he was in.

They won't be able to do anything more for him and have decided to let him rest.

We are a huge number of christians, friends, family, priests, people that don't even know him, praying for him, for his wife so that she stays strong, and for his family.

Many many masses have been said and will be said for him so that God may miraculously heal him.

The communion of saints is spreading through France like wild fire for him and his healing, it is so beautiful that it could convert anyone who witnesses it.

It is also starting to go international, masses are being said by priests in Italy, Japan, Birmany, Israel..

We are so many that I believe with all my heart in a miracle.

And God has so much compassion, is so gentle that he can't watch over this without granting us the miracle of François' life and good health.

But I want to help spread the communion of saints even more.

So here I am asking you to pray with us for François, to pray with us for his miraculous healing and to spread this prayer to your community and friends and priests so that they also have masses for him and so that the communion of saints becomes huge, like a web getting stronger and stronger the more we are to pray for François and getting bigger and bigger, going out of France and spreading world wide for François.

Thank you so much for your time, and your prayers.

I ask for prayers of healing specifically for my husband, 47 years old diagnosed with Parkinson’s this past year. I pray for Dopamine restored in his brain and full function returning to his left arm and leg. I pray that we accept His Will if physically my husband is not healed and that we will humbly continue to hope and never doubt His Mercy. In Your Holy Name Jesus. I also ask for prayers for my teenage son whom struggles with addiction to vaping nicotine and marijuana. It has caused so much brokenness in our relationship and family. Thank you to all that are praying.

For Ethan(7th grade) who told me he did not believe in miracles, he did not believe in the miracles of Jesus and had trouble believing Jesus was the Son of God. He was angry and rebellious. He only believes in science. When I asked him what would make him believe he said, “a miracle!”

Please pray that our youth team and I will be able to help him. We have all begun to pray. He is new to our youth group and is suppose to be confirmed April 2020.

Thank you.
