Intercessory prayer is simply the act of praying for someone else. It shows both a love for fellow man and faith and conviction in God. The Apostle James said to “pray one for another” and added, “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
Always pray for your family and friends regardless of need or circumstance.
One of the virtues of writing down your prayer request is that it helps to focus your thoughts. Writing aids in clarifying and defining the need. Inviting others to pray with you brings the living Christ amongst all.
“Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:19-20
