Power principles for intercessory prayer

PrayerIt is the believer’s privilege and duty to intercede in prayer on the behalf of others.  Prayer is not just a dialogue between us and our Heavenly Father.  It is also a partnership between us and God where we don’t pray only to receive an answer but also to become part of the answer.  God often uses our prayers to show us how we can help those for whom we are interceding.

Dr. Cindy Trimm is a prayer warrior who has dedicated her life to serving God.  In her book “‘Til Heaven Invades Earth”, Trimm identifies the practices and attitudes of a good intercessor.  Prayer is a habit that helps us grow as believers.  According to Trimm, if we feel insecure about praying, we should start where we feel comfortable, build on our experience, attend prayer meetings, and keep praying.  Intercession is hard work, but it is a necessary part of our Christian life and growth and worth every bit of energy we put into it.

Trimm offers helpful principles in order to learn how to move past the praying for someone to having an impact on others and ultimately the world around them.  We often don’t believe our prayers offer much of an impact until we realize how important intercessory prayer is to God.
