Everyone needs to pray as this is part of our basic relationship with the Lord – but intercession occurs when Christians allow Him to take them into a much more intense type of prayer. Often this happens as we feel the need to pray for a request and from a request it turns into a sense of ownership. At times it seems we are taken up into the very throne room of Heaven and feel what the Lord feels about the person or situation we are praying about. We may even enter into what is called “travail” as if we are like a woman travailing in labour in order to give birth to her child.
