Intercessors prayer is fulfilling the need of praying for other people, while prayer warriors engage in a spiritual battle against Satan. When a person says a favorable prayer for another person, they intervene for them. They act as a intermediary between the person and God for a precise reason.

Ephesians 3:14-21 And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Intercession or intercessory prayer is the act of praying to a deity or to a saint in heaven on behalf of oneself or others.
The definition is basic: an intercessor is someone who prays, petitions, or begs God in favor of another person. It’s a Biblical concept that appears often. The most famous case probably is when Abram barters God down from the need to find 50 righteous men to 10 righteous men in order to spare Sodom and Gomorrah.
When the Apostle Paul wrote to the Thessalonian church “to this end we always pray for you” he obviously was affirming his belief in intercessory prayer . We are to pray for others, especially those undergoing trying times, for our prayers will make a difference .
Prayer is a gift that we can give each other, when we can give nothing else. As we read the book of Acts, we see the early church formed in the spirit of prayer . Jesus’ disciples and the many followers, both men and women, devoted themselves to conversation with God. The church was founded on this holy communion.
The gift of Intercession is the God-given ability to consistently pray on behalf of and for others, seeing frequent and specific results. Set a daily time to pray for spiritual victories over the challenges and obstacles of life.
An intercessor reminds the Lord of His promises until they are fulfilled. To remind the Lord of His promises we must always be cognizant of what we know and believe about Him in our hearts. This includes the belief that He desires to fulfill those promises and is capable of fulfilling them.
Loving God , I pray that you will comfort me in my suffering, lend skill to the hands of my healers, and bless the means used for my cure. Give me such confidence in the power of your grace, that even when I am afraid, I may put my whole trust in you; through our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
Some people ask why God doesn’t answer , or doesn’t always answer , their prayers . But the fact is, God does answer prayer . In fact, God answers every prayer . If you think about it, though, you can understand why he doesn’t answer every prayer with a “Yes,” immediately.
Jesus taught, “When you pray , do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men … but when you pray , go into your room, close the door and pray to your father who is unseen.”
