God didn’t give us illness to be mean. On the contrary, He’s right here with us in the dirt and the mess, even when we can’t feel Him. All the while He’s saying, “I’m sorry. I’m sorry it hurts. Please believe that I have a purpose. I love you, My child.”
A prayer of intercession is simply praying for others. An intercessor takes the place of another with arms open in prayer and pleads their case.
