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 humbly ask for healing of pancreatic tumors for my husband. He and I are parents to 5 young girls and he has a genetic disease which can cause endocrine tumors. He has numerous slow growing tumors on his pancreas. He goes to the Mayo Clinic June 5-6 and I ask for God’s mercy for the tumors to be frozen in growth. He is our provider for our family and the delight of his daughters’ lives. Jesus, savior and Lord, bring healing and protection to Travis. Thank you for your sacrifices of prayer.

Please pray for my mother for healing of her cancer through Jesus Christ. Please pray for strength and energy as she undergoes more aggressive therapy. I pray that Jesus is by her side through all of her appointments and treatments. May the Holy Spirit work through her doctors and nurses and guide them to make great decisions for her care.

Through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Please pray for my 11 year old daughter Julia. She just found out from her orthodonist, that because of her bite problems. She may lose her two front teeth. This scares Julia and makes her depressed. Please pray that either God heals her or the dentist figures out out to save her teeth. Thank you.

My name is Anthony and my wife Joanne and 3 daughters Hannah, Hayley and Emily need prayer.

I have made many mistakes since becoming a Christian.

The Lord has showed me wrong teachings that have damaged many people with me and my family included.

At this time of my life, my family and I are broken and I can only hope in the Lord's Great mercy and his desire to be gracious when we don’t deserve.

I ask if it be at all possible that your prayer team could pray for all of Us.

I don’t exactly know what the gift of mercy is but I need mercy from the lord for my wrongs.

I have seen all my wrongs in the Lords sight now, and I'm ashamed and desire mercy and forgiveness and that his will be done for me and my family.

I'm reaching out to the body of Christ as I know the Lord is attentive to the prayers of his people and may be gracious to us and does relent if we repent and the battle is in the spiritual realm.

I realise you don’t know me but I can only ask for all the prayer you being led by the Lord alone can give.

I appreciate any prayer. May the lord Bless you all for the service to the body.

My husband is looking for a very good job where he can afford housing and our basic needs and also funds to give generously to the cause of the kingdom of Jesus Christ. We have been looking for a very long time and we need a break through. So many have been praying but we have no break through. I want to see God lead and direct my husband. Its becoming more than I can handle not seeing God come through. I am confused and tired. If you can please pray God speaks clearly to my husband as to what job to pursue. How to assertively pursue it and for that company or organization to reach out to him and respond to his applications, phone calls and emails. Please remove the discouragement and give us hope.
