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 prayed for this

Prayed for 6 times.


Good morning. I have to Urgent prayer requests. The first prayer request is for a woman in my prayer group her name is Pat she is just 77 years old. She has experienced a lot of problems with her thyroid which requires surgery and the surgery is for tumor that is growing. The doctors may have to crack her sternum to get to it and it may affect her voice and her swallowing. Please pray that the power of the Lord will guide the doctors and nurses and that the Holy Spirit will heal her and give her peace. She has been under a lot of spiritual attack, so pray for her doctors and nurses and staff and complete healing and Recovery. My second prayer request is for my best friend Janine Marie who you have been praying for for quite a few months now she is also facing surgery for her foot which has tumors growing in it. Every time they're taken out, they grow back worse.. The tumors are in her right foot when which of course she has to use to drive everywhere . She's experiencing pain as well and experiencing circulation problems in her legs and feet because of her heart problems. She is going to go through surgery and September 2nd and I pray that her heart can take the procedure. She wants to be better she is a on fire believer in Christ. The Lord has shown her what He wants her to do in regards to evangelize for the Lord. She is my dearest sister in the Lord and she's like a real to me. Please pray for the doctors and nurses, and that she will not get ill no sickness, no infections no complications. And that prayers also for Pat as well.
