Intercession


Description

Intercession – is to take position or stand in the gap, and mediate, plead or reconcile between
two opposing forces such as between men and satan, light and darkness, despair and hope;
sickness and wholeness; life and death. “I looked for a man among them who would build up
the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it”,
Ezek.22:30. This can be achieved by taking our position; according to the authority we have in
Christ, as believers, through prayer and petition, praise and worship, with prophetic acts of
pleading, or with language from the Spirit of God not expressible in natural language.

Purpose

The purpose of intercession is to establish the will of God on earth. “He wishes all men to be
saved and increasingly to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly
the divine truth” 1 Tim 2:4.
