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.

Intercession Prayer Wall

I prayed for this

Prayed for 9 times.

Jim Norton

My 38y/o Sister-in-law "Ai-Chan" is battling cancer for the second time, except this time she has been told the cancer has spread too far and its likely terminal. Tom and Ai have 3 lovely kids, all under 10, who are trying to make sense of it all and not lose their mother, wife, and friend.

I have been praying as big as I can imagine, because I believe in the Lord God Almighty, who is the God of miracles. But I know when we join together; our prayers are amplified; and something as big as a death sentence is but ash at the feet of our Lord and Savior.

So I am asking that anyone who is willing, to lift them up in prayer and proclaim that this Cancer be destroyed in the name of Jesus Christ. That new life will fill Aichan, a fresh breath of the Holy Spirit will fill her lungs, and her earthly body will be restored.

Thank you, and may the Peace of the Lord fill you and his presence surround you.
