James 5:17-18, “ Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.” (NKJV)
We believe prayer should be an integral part of every believer’s life and the life of the church. The Lord Jesus Christ recommended numerous times in the Gospels that we pray, intercede and persevere in our prayers knowing that our Father hears and answers us (Luke 11:1-13, Luke 18:1-8, Matt 26:41, 1 John 5:14-15).
Like Nehemiah (Neh 1:4-11), Daniel (Dan 9:4-19), the Apostles and the Disciples (Acts 4:24-31), the intercession team believes in the effectiveness of persistent and Spirit filled prayer made with expectation and faith in God (Jas 5:17-18), in the name of Jesus (John 14:13). We have been witness of many answered prayers.
Our intercession team prays for the church, the Body of Christ, the city of Ottawa, Canada and individual prayer requests. The team also prays for the sick and those in need of deliverance as they are led by the Lord’s Spirit.
The Intercession Prayer Service takes place every Friday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. (the prayer meeting is open to all)
