How to Approach Intercessory Prayer

Bishop Alex on How to Approach Intercessory Prayer

“It is my conviction that when we ask things of God, God acts. God hears. Jesus told us, 'Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find.' Our anticipation as we pray is to a God who is hearing us, who wants to come to us, who wants to respond. Will he always respond in the way we specifically ask? Why, no. But it is my conviction that he is always responding.” 

Bishop Alex addresses the importance of approaching intercessory prayer—praying for others—with anticipation. As someone once remarked about his way of praying, "You pray as if you're expecting something to happen."
