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.

Intercession Prayer Wall

I prayed for this

Prayed for 13 times.


My husband and I have 2 sons, our oldest is 23 and is doing fulltime Christian campus ministry, praise God! Our second son K is 21, and he has rejected God and the Catholic faith he was brought up with. He has just finished his university degree, and told us 2 weeks ago that he is transgender, and that he is transitioning to female, has been on estrogen hormone treatment for 3 months (which he was prescribed after only one less-than-1-hour psychiatrist visit!). Needless to say, we are devastated and heartbroken.

Please pray for a personal Pentecost experience for our son, a Damascus-moment.

Please pray the Holy Spirit shows him that he has chosen a path of destruction, that the evil one is seeking to steal, kill, destroy.

Please pray for his college friend who is coaching our son and leading him down this path, for God to intervene powerfully in this relationship.
