The Lord is teaching me about intercession and I've learned much from reading "Rees Howell Intercessor." How has Jesus dealt with your heart about prayers of intercession?
This is a short answer, because I say a lot in other threads.. but, to answer the basic question, I have benefitted hugely from other people's prayers of intercession, and by faith therefore, I [i]know[/i] they are a multifunctional shortcut to health, strength and unity in the Body of Christ - to say nothing of vital for the non-Christians whom we love and pray for to be saved.
My answer is that unless the church gets back to prayer and intercession we will never expereince genuine revival -- sorry just read Ravenhill's book -- [i]Revival Praying [/i] and I am very convicted, but that is a good thing ;-)Blessings.
Amen Pastor,Couldn't agree with you more. For those who haven't read Rees Howell: Intercessor a good summation can be found here http://byfaith.co.uk/paulreeshowells3.htm.

Interesting that you asked....recently I became aware I have not been praying 'correctly' if there is such a thing. I would always ask God to speak to so and so. Well, duh! He does that! This statement assumes the individual will respond when the Lord speaks/convicts when it is as far from reality as could be. Now I pray that God would work on the individual to help them be responsive. Thankfully, I know the Lord knew what I meant. Just points up to the reality how we should depend on the Spirit to lead us in our communication with Him.ginnyrose
I have to admitt that I have found myself praying more and more but intercessing less and less. That is a good reminder for me to make some adjustments, thanks :-)
