Prayer of intercession is about talking to God for other people’s needs, church or nation’s needs. It could be about one’s health, financial situation, and many more. The hallmark of intercession is to stand in the gap for others.
We can also intercede for Sunday services in our churches to invoke God’s presence and enjoy divine visitation. It is paramount to be involved and call upon God before starting a Sunday service. We should call upon God to take control of the service to ensure the free flow of the Holy Ghost.
Interceding for a Sunday service shouldn’t be an activity that should be carried out by just the pastors. The members, workers, and conversation should intercede for the Sunday service too we have helped in compiling a few prayers of intercession for this Sunday listed below.
