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.

It is my heart's desire to adopt my foster daughter and to raise her in Christ. Although she has been in my home for 2 years, CPS wants to place the baby with a biological relative who is not a Christ follower, amid several other concerns. Please pray for my baby's physical, emotional, and spiritual safety. The next hearing is July 23, so we are running out time and need a miracle. There is a fierce spiritual battle over this placement decision because it has temporal and eternal significance. Please pray that the Lord move heaven and earth to keep this child in my home.

Please also pray that the Lord heal the baby's biological mother in body, mind, and spirit and cut all cords of addiction from her. My faith has taken a beating, and I find myself depressed, angry, and doubting God’s goodness. Please pray for my faith, strength, hope, and encouragement. Thank you!
