The intercessor’s passion is prayer for others. The more we learn about such prayer, the more we realize God’s calling to intercede is not for a few only but is an important part of every believer’s lifestyle. All believers can intercede. 

And when you think about it, who could possibly be exempt? Who would say they do not have Jesus’s anointing and therefore cannot pray fervently for others? Thankfully, all believers are equipped to pray fervently because all are equipped with born-again DNA, and all believers have divine stirring from the Holy Spirit. All believers can be intercessors. 

The Bible meaning of fervent prayer includes the concept of being “stretched out” in prayer,[1] giving all, holding nothing back. Fervency and confidence toward God, along with determination to see His will accomplished, can mean we are prostrate before God, abandoned to the purpose of praying for God’s will in all manner of situations. 

Intercession can also mean we are shut in with the Lord when we pray, our focus on the Holy Spirit’s leading, woven with passion and emboldened with steadfast confidence in the One to whom we appeal.
