The gift of intercession is the ability to pray for others over extended periods of time and on a regular basis. People with this gift can persist in prayer until the answer arrives, and often observe specific answers to those prayers. While God desires all Christ Followers to communicate with him through regular prayer, the gift of Intercessory Prayer is a special endowment of the Holy Spirit that transforms the Christ Follower into a “Prayer Warrior” with the knowledge that prayer stands on the front lines of spiritual warfare.
“Epaphras, who is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends greetings. He is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured” (Colossians 4:12).
