An intercessor is a very special person, they are a selfless person first and foremost. An intercessor will pray for people who don’t deserve it and they pray for the very people that hate them. They are motivated solely by the Holy Spirit and most times they never see their prayers answered.
John 9:31 Now we know that God does not hear sinners.
A true sinner does not pray, they do not know how or what to pray. God will honor their desires on account of their ignorance, that’s what He did for me. Ever since I was a young boy I wanted to go to heaven but I didn’t know the way, because I was full of “religion”. Based on my yearning for salvation the Holy Spirit began to lead me to people who were in possession of the truth. After my conversion to the Christian faith I began to meet people who were interceding for me. Every sinner who comes to Christ should be an intercessor.
Luke 14:26 If any man come to Me, and hate not his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters and yes his own life, he cannot be My disciple.
We need to understand what Jesus is saying here. In order to commit and submit to the life Jesus died to give us, we must love Him more than our own family. The word hate means to love less. Not everyone will agree with what the Lord gives us to do, some of our greatest opposition will come from our family members. The Lord will save a member of a family and then designate that person to intercede for the rest of the family. Being at odds with your family is not a qualifying reason not to pray for them. The heathen family members are watching the saved one, they just want to be certain that the “crazy Christian” is for real.
1 Timothy 2:1 I exhort that first of all supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made to all men.
The core group of intercessors should be growing with every new conversion. Every born-again believer is called to intercede for a sinner or sinners. When a believer intercedes they open the door of the sinner, for the Holy Ghost to enter in and begin to woo them with the love of God. From the very beginning God gave dominion to man, and this dominion brings responsibility. Jesus had to return to the Father because He reclaimed His deity, He forfeited His dominion when He was no longer a mere man.
1 Timothy 2:4 Jesus will have all men to be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth.
The role of an intercessor is for all men to be saved, they are called and anointed for this purpose. God needs our prayers because we have the dominion, this is a partnership between the Head and His body. Some will plant, some will water but it will be God that makes the whole process work. We have a choice, we can complain and criticize the antics of our kin folk or we can intercede. If we leave the decision up to our Lord, He will call for prayer. Amen.
I know the grace of God,
it came from His love for me.
Jesus was a wealthy man,
but the curse made Him poor so I could be increased with wealth.
Jesus is my Passover,
I eat His body and drink His blood.
I have His life within me,
a life of peace and abundance.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
