Prayers of Intercession


Intercession simply put is, praying on the behalf for others! Below are some prayers to help get you started. 

Jesus is the greatest intercessor of all time! Here are some of His prayers:

  • Jesus prayed for Peter - Luke 22:32 says, "But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers."
  • Jesus prayed for those who crucified Him. Luke 23:34 says, "Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.' And they divided up his clothes by casting lots."
  • Jesus prayed for His disciples and for Believers throughout eternity in John 17.
