Intercessory prayer

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

When we realize that intercession is an exercise in awarness it brings a great change to our understanding of it. When praying for others we allow ourselves to be caught in the current of communication which the Spirit gives between us and another, and most of all between us and God. … True intercession places another person more firmly in the arms of the divine love which will never infringe that person’s freedom, but which works through bestowals of awareness and recognition, through evocation and response, through the offer of choice and the glimpse of possibility. John Taylor, The Go-Between God
