“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Prayer is intimacy with God that leads to the fulfillment of His purposes – Alvin Reed
Intercession is God’s brilliant strategy to include all His people in ruling with Him in power. It is so simple that anyone can do it, and yet it releases more power than any other activity in which human beings can engage.
It would be impossible to overemphasize the importance of intercessory prayer. God has chosen intercession as the primary means of releasing His power in the earth. Scripture makes it clear that intercession is one of the central activities in God’s kingdom, both now and in the ages to come.
