Intercession


Intercession is the indispensable foundation for any church and for any ministry.

When we intercede we acknowledge God as the prime mover in the renewal of our own lives and in the reinvigoration of the church. We recognise that we need to hear God’s voice first and foremost. And we lay down our own will in preference for his. We return to the source of all life, we re-source. We lay before God the needs of the world. And we wait, for his word, his heart, his instruction, for him to act. And we wait expectantly.

ReSource's Pray around the Clock material gives intercessors a scripture and prayer focus for each hour of the day, praying especially for the renewal of the church in the UK, and for ReSource's own ministry.

ReSource has a dedicated group of intercessors who commit to intercede for every ReSource Event, for those in our Church partnership Scheme, and for little, local and ordinary churches across the UK to be engaged with the Holy Spirit for renewal, discipleship and mission.

The ReSource Intercessors Network is facilitated by the Revd Esther McCafferty, and a small team of Coordinators who liaise with members of the Network through the course of the year.

On occasions members of the Intercessors Network may be praying through confidential matters; so we ask those who are interested in joining apply through the ReSource office, and that their application is endorsed by a church leader.

Members of the Intercessors Network will generally intercede by themselves, though there will be occasions when we gather together regionally or nationally. Members have a list of Partner Churches to pray for in rotation, and receive information about each ReSource engagement so that it is undergirded by specific prayer, and so that we can hear what God may be saying to the leaders and participants. Members also receive confidential updates from the Director and Administrator on current issues in the life and leadership of the charity.

If you think that God may be prompting you to make this commitment and to be part of the ReSource Intercessors Network please let us know using the link below, or by phone or email to the ReSource office, and we will be in touch.

 Testimonial

"Michael’s combination of theological insight, pastoral sensitivity and sense of humour enabled us to see the challenges that Jacob faced in a new light. There was an underlying sense that the Spirit was at work amongst us as we explored the themes together. Even more refreshing was the way in which the Spirit gave us new insights in our discussions. This was a truly encouraging, if brief, retreat and we returned to our parishes with fresh enthusiasm to keep on going in the power of the Spirit."
Geoff Mumford, New Ainsty Deanery, Diocese of York
