Duties of an intercessor

ISAIAH 62:6-7

I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lordgive yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.

An intercessor reminds the Lord of His promises until they are fulfilled. 

To remind the Lord of His promises we must always be cognizant of what we know and believe about Him in our hearts. We must know His promises, both the promises found in the scriptures and the promises received by revelation – revelation that is aligned to the Word of God or aligned to the principles of the Word of God.

We need to continue to grow in our knowledge and our faith in the character of the Lord as spoken of in the scriptures. This includes the belief that He desires to fulfill those promises and is capable of fulfilling them.

An Intercessor is one who fights (or pleads) for Justice, to prevail on behalf of another.  Isaiah 59:15 & 16

To plead to God for justice we must believe that God is just, but we must also understand that in that place of justice the Lord is also merciful.

An intercessor is one who builds the wall (or hedge) of protection. In such situations we are standing in-between the people of God and their problems or issues, to protect them from danger and help build a spiritual wall that will strengthen them to stand in health and wholeness.  Ezekiel 13: 4 & 5

To build the wall of protection, we must believe we have the authority and the ability to build. We must believe that, like Nehemiah, we are commissioned to rebuild. We also have to be trained and equipped to build.

An intercessor is one who stands between God’s judgment and His people and pleads for mercy. Ezekiel 22:29 & 30

To stand between God’s judgment and His people, we must know His LOVE for His people and believe He is merciful. And we must know that He will not act contrary to the character of His Good Name.

To grow in our effectiveness as intercessors, we should always desire to grow in the experiential knowledge of God. We must grow in our understanding of His Character – to correctly represent Him in our daily walk; and we must grow in our understanding of who we are and what our authority is in Christ Jesus when we stand before our God in intercession.

  3. When we believe in Christ Jesus, trust in his promises, obey his word, submit to his will, humble our ways, say yes have your way in my life, renew in me your right Spirit. He will never leave us ALONE but, we’ll become ALL ONE in him. ENTER – SESSION’S – OF – PRAYING – WITHOUT – CEASING.

  4. Thanks so much for sharing!!!
    I am reminded that we must continue to come together in prayer with a bold confidence in God’s promises according to His will. let us also remember to enter into intercession not just for oneself, but always for others who stand ahead of us in the need of prayer. I believe that the blessing will come behind and shower us as we entreat, meet, and reach God for His Glory!

  6. Growing in intercession requires you to work on your relationship with God. Yearn to be more intimate with Him. From there He will lead you on how to grow as a child of God, which will result in you praying more for your loved ones, salvation of souls, your leaders, nations and so forth. Let your focus be Jesus always. 🙏
