A Prayer for Intercession

5m | Sep 8, 2022

It’s easy to make our prayer time all about ourselves. With this prayer, we’re opening ourselves up to however God may want to use us to pray for others.

  • Lift up the things on your mind that make it hard to pray for others.
  • Ask God for a burden for someone today.
  • Confess anyone you haven’t forgiven and lift up a prayer for them.
  • Praise God for the opportunity to pray for others.


If you enjoyed this prayer, it has been adapted from my book Springboard Prayers. If you were encouraged by it and would like 124 other prayers to read when you don’t have the words, grab a copy at
