It is the very nature of love to give. If we truly love people we will want for them more than we are capable of giving them. For the intercessor this loving desire leads to prayer in their behalf. Prayer is a way to bring God into the lives of others so that He will do for them what they cannot do for themselves. ~Alvin VanderGriend, Praying God’s Heart
Lately, I have found myself thinking about some of the people who prayed me long before I realized how much I needed to be loved. To the many intercessors in my life, thank you for the gift of both love and prayer.
Who are the intercessors in your life?
Right now, there are many older people in our church who intercede for my family, which is one of the things I am grateful for in the church we serve. I think my parents pray for us, and I have a few good friends who pray. How about you, Jill?
I am blessed with dear friends and past prayer partners who bless me with the gift of intercession. As a person with a passion to pray for others, I see the prayers of others as an act of service. On the other side of the coin I have had to learn to receive the prayers of others because I need others praying for me in order to more effectively pray for others. Jill
