An intercessor is someone who fights on behalf of others. As such, intercession is the activity that identifies us most with Christ. We should be interceding for our families, church, business, job, authorities, country or anyone who you have responsibility for and anything that God tells us to pray for. Jesus is our great intercessor, He came to earth and interceded for us by taking the mocking, beating and the cruelty of the cross and He is still at the right hand of the Father interceding for us each day.
Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Hebrews 7:25
Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died–more than that, who was raised to life–is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Romans 8:34
Watch this powerful video that encourages Christians to stand in the gap for others, to think about the question, who can I pray for? instead of who is going to pray for me? and realize that we were rescued to rescue others.
