When Prayer Becomes Intercession – Part 2 Sam and Liza Lewis

In the first part of this article, we focused on Yeshua as the Shepherd, and the relationship the sheep must have with the Good Shepherd as we are joined with Him as the Bridegroom.

As intercessors we also learn how to hear His voice and follow after Him as we are enabled to see things as He does, through the success of Heaven.

In this segment we will take a deeper look at Yeshua, our Shepherd King and examine what it means to focus on Him as our Bridegroom, and with us as His beloved and in our calling to intercession. This is where we learn how to enter into His efforts of intercession, and find true intimacy with Him in the bridal chamber in this calling to a lifestyle of prayer.
