Intercessory Prayer is when we engage in prayer on behalf of others. We stand, as a priest would stand, between people and God. And we go to God on behalf of people. We intercede on their behalf.

Our Lord Jesus Christ gave Himself on the cross as intercessor for all men. Intercession is still His unceasing service and ministry to those who draw near to God through Him (Hebrews 7:25).

Next to worship, it is the highest form of service you can perform. "The greatest thing anyone can do for God and man is to pray. It is not the only thing, but it is the chief thing." (S.D. Gordon, Quiet Talks on Prayer.)

An intercessor is one with genuine concern for others, who stands in the gap between man and God making request before God or resisting the devil on mans behalf (Exodus 32:9-14; Psalm 106:23; Ezekiel 22:30,31; James 4:7,8).

As we come to God, we are requesting His hand to be moved on behalf of the person, nation, circumstance, and subject of our prayers. The enemy of mens souls is powerless against intercessory prayer.

We are directed by God's Word to intercede for others:

"First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:1-4).
