1Tim 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
Supplications- specific petitions concerning our needs and desires.
Prayers- General prayers made unto God
Intercessions- An interesting word that can be defined in a variety of ways. “Conference, encounters, conversation,” are all part of intercession. We can describe it as the act of developing a relationship with a person as to become intimate with him or her, resulting in the ability to hold conversations with that individual.
Holding sustained and intimate conversations (intercession) with the Lord can only be the result of breaking through into the Spirit realm.
Paul describes the Spirit realm as the third heaven.
Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Helpeth our infirmities- The Greek tells us that the Holy Spirit comes face to face with us to take a hold together with us of our infirmities and frailties.
The Spirit itself maketh intercession for us – Greek: “To hit the target above and beyond what is normal.” I.E. “to do the right thing and do it with skill.”
The intercessory ministry of the Holy Spirit, as He comes to take a hold of our weaknesses, is to give us the breakthroughs, answers, and deliverances that we need with bull’s eye accuracy.
