More About Intercession: By Bishop Dr. Varghese L. Mathai

As noted above, when writing to Timothy, a first century disciple, the Apostle Paul gave this instruction to believers (of all ages):
"...I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men (and women), for kings and all who are in authority,that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior (1 Timothy 2:1-3).
This is Intercession at its best! If we read carefully, we will notice that all the important elements of Prayer are implied or included here--supplications, prayers (requests), intercessions and thanksgiving!!
For whom shall we pray or intercede? All men (and women)!
