There are characteristics unique to those who regularly have a conviction to prayer for others (intercede). The call to labor in prayer is very distinct; some are obvious and others seem obscure. I believe most know recognize this calling but are reluctant to own it for a number of reasons, however I have descovered most simply feel unworthy, not equipped. Believe me these are leaving blessings by the wayside, not experiencing the reward God has called them to.
Andrew Murray states it this way:
You are called to intercession. You are called to stand as a minister at my altar. “Harp and Bowl”, saith the Lord, praise, worship, prayer. You are called to stand in-between Heaven and earth saith the Lord – as any man who stands in the pulpit – you are called to full-time intercession in my House. Come saith God. Take your calling seriously. Prepare yourself. Study to show yourself approved. Study the great intercessors in the Scriptures: Study those who knelt before me. Study Daniel. Study Job. He offered sacrifices for his friends for perhaps they had sinned; he interceded. Daniel interceded for his people and confessed their sins. Moses interceded. Jesus interceded. Do not say that I am just little and no one will notice. For I tell you, heaven will take notice of you. You are important, saith the Lord.
‘Study to show yourself approved’
