Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Timothy 2:1(KJV); I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
There is no such thing as a calling to be an intercessor or the office of an intercessor.
There are only people who are gifted with more grace in prayer.
Intercession is the responsibility of EVERY Christian.
Our theme scripture says that intercession is to be made “for all.” The language of the scripture does not limit this responsibility to a specific group of people.
You ought to pray for your leaders, your boss, your ministry, your family among others. Some people are so engrossed with their personal needs; it is all they ask for in prayer. They leave the responsibility of prayer for all men to “prayer warriors” and “intercessors.”
No, that is a lack of understanding of the responsibility of prayer.
It is the mandate of every Christian to pray for more than just what they need but for the nation, the body of Christ, fellow believers and even colleagues at the work place.
Purpose to live a life beyond your own needs; pray for the ministers of the gospel, pray for the government and pray for your supervisors at work. Learn to carry people, institutions and even nations in prayer.
That is part of spiritual maturity.

PRAYER: My Lord, I thank you for this great wisdom. I know that you are the God who answers prayer, for the confidence that I have is that when I pray you hear me and because you hear me, I have the petitions that I ask of you.
This day, I choose to pray with the understanding that I have a responsibility over my nation, in the body of Christ and every place that you have positioned me. In this wisdom and understanding, I change my world, to the glory of your name. Amen.
