Prayer isn’t All About us

The word “intercession” in the original language of the New Testament means “having freedom of access.”  It was originally a technical term that meant meeting with a king in order to make a request.  In the Bible, intercession means “making a request of God on behalf of others.”

Job 42:7-9

The privilege of access is given to us not simply so that we may ask for OURSELVES but so that we may ask FOR others, especially those who have no access, that is they don’t use the access offered to everyone.
