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.

Baby Miracle? Advanced maternal age of 45 and pregnant with baby #6. Child #5 (age 8) has been praying for over a year for a baby brother that's healthy and strong and for Mommy to be healthy and strong. Pregnancy unexpectedly achieved following the Encounter Conference after my husband and then our marriage was prayed for during the impartation evening! However, early ultrasound showing underdeveloped embryo recently, which means miscarriage is likely in the next few weeks. All is in God's hands and much peace has been granted. Praying to St. Joseph, Husband of Mary whose feast is quickly approaching during this Lenten journey of wondering with hope. May God's will be done in and through me also through the intercession of Mary of the Annunciation! Thank you!
