Sometimes we think our intercession for others will work only if we say enough prayers or say the right ones, but the power of intercessory prayer lies in the love we put into the prayer and the love of our God who hears them.

Dr. Edward Sri records this week’s episode from a place on the Sea of Galilee near Capernaum—where Jesus healed the paralyzed man who was lowered through a roof by his friends. Reflecting on the story of the paralyzed man lowered through the roof by his friends, Dr. Sri explains how Christ invites us to be part of his healing ministry by interceding for our friends, loved ones, co-workers, and even total strangers.

Snippet from the Show: 

“God does not need our help or our prayers. But even though he doesn’t need them, he invites us to pray. He is moved by our love for someone else.”
