Intercession does something very powerful: It joins the heart of the Intercessor to the heart of the one being prayed for. In intercession, you’re investing yourself in another person’s life.
The body of Christ doesn’t work properly without the members praying for each other. Prayer is the immunity system of the body of Christ.
– Prayerlessness in the body of Christ is akin to leprosy…when the church does not feel pain with other suffering believers, it indicates the presence of “spiritual leprosy.” The Church’s nerves are dead.
– One of the fantastic mysteries of prayer is how God joins together the international house of affection (the Church) through the impassioned support of one another in prayer.
