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 1 time.

Madhavi Vanderlinden

I just found out that my sister Eva's husband, Ryan Stevenson, has been hiding alcoholism for some time and is now hospitalized. We had no idea. Just yesterday it happened that he was too intoxicated to find his way home, and it came to light that for months now he has been ordering thousands of dollars of alcohol and consuming it in secret. My sister does not think she can stay married to him. I do not think divorce is the answer. Please pray for my sister, that she can be so strong and have all the support she needs so that she can stand with her husband and be with him through recovery. Please pray for Ryan, that he can completely throw this demon of addiction and can be truthful and faithful to his wife always henceforth, and can also return to his faith in the Lord. My sister is Jewish but Ryan was born a Christian and converted to Catholicism as a young adult, before their marriage. He has struggled with depression and faithlessness for some time, and this seems like the bottom of the road for him. Please pray for him; I know your prayers are powerful and can truly call the Lord for healing. Please.
