Intercession According to Paul

Prayer A to Z

Paul was a great prayer warrior and was always interceding for others.  Here are three passages having to do with Paul’s intercession. Then please take note of the three things I have observed from Paul about what intercession is:

Colossians 1:3-5

  1. St. Paul has been called “The father of human mediation” in Christian theology. It is in his humanity that Jesus intercedes for us to the Father as priest and victim. We, as adopted children of the Father, who has made us a kingdom of priests to serve God, have a share in Christ’s principal mediation by cooperating with his merits, but not in coordination with them. Along with Paul, we are factual mediators.
