Intercessor: a person who intervenes on behalf of another, especially by prayer.
I heard this word used last night. A sweet person told me she is an intercessor. I’ve met intercessors before and I know what intercessory prayer is, but I had never really thought of those people that pray for us being called that specific word. It is beautiful to me.
An intercessor stands up for us. They call on God for us. Wow. That is just wow.
I mention a lady from our church many times who lived until she was 95 and was always praying. She was a mighty intercessor! I strive to be more like the example this wonderful lady was for me. I thank God for putting Mrs. Pearson in my life to show me what a real God gal is. She was amazing and lived her life for our Lord.
Once again, I thank God for putting other people in my path that are great examples. This sweet lady that used this “intercessor” word is yet another one. I met Mrs. Anne through a mutual friend and each time I’ve been blessed to see her, I have always felt the Spirit of God on her. She amazes me with her prayer life. She shares her miracle stories and makes me smile. She is a blessing! And an intercessor!
Oh God, please allow me to become more and more of an intercessor for those who need me to all on God for them. And thank You again, Lord, for giving me examples of these type of people. I am in awe of how You use Your people. I praise You for that especially today! Amen!
