Prayer is two-way communication between God and us. Prayer includes worship, thanks, asking for help and guidance, and listening for God’s answers. “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we have asked of him.” (1 John 5:14)
Intercession is praying behind the scenes on behalf of others. It is doing spiritual battle for someone until there is break through. Someone with supernatural grace as an intercessor will often spend hours in intense prayer for others without noticing time has gone by. They are relentless that God will prevail and be glorified.
