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 2 times.

Tracey Metzger

I ask prayers for my daughter, Anna, 24. She is headed to DC today for 3 days of discernment with Franciscan Mission Service.

She has felt God call her to be a missionary in S. America. I pray that she hears His yes or no loud and clear.

My daughter Molli, 26, who so wants to find a godly man to be her earthly spouse. I ask for a heart that is patient and open without a set of standards, only what God has in store for her. Molli also needs a sense of peace and calm, free from unnecessary anxiety.

And for Chelsea, 28, for her heart of be filled with a longing to return to the Catholic Church. The ability to discontinue medications that have horrible side effects. I pray that her boyfriend, Joe, is the man God has chosen for her. If not, that she may hear God's voice of direction.

And if you will add one more prayer for my husband and I as we continue our journey toward heaven. May David be open more and more to the power of the Holy Spirit and how God wants us to step out in faith and use him as His vessel.

Thank you all so much, I truly appreciate it and love how many voices are like fire works to heaven!
