On Behalf of Others

If the Lord has been impressing upon you to spend dedicated time with Him in prayer interceding (praying on behalf of another), consider that you are in the good company of Jesus, who is right now at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us (Romans 8:34). He lives to intercede (Hebrews 7:25).

We get to partner with Him and there are different ways we can go about it. If you’re local to Columbus, of course, one excellent way is to come into the Harvest House of Prayer, a space dedicated to the worship and petitioning of the Lord on behalf of individuals, communities, the nation, and the world.

Here are four tools to establish praying on behalf of others in your life:


Purposely listen for the opportunities to pray. The needs are all around you. You can pray right then and also lift up the requests to Him in time you set apart.


You can also inquire of those around you, sharing with them that you’re heading into a time of prayer and would like to know how to pray on their behalf.


The Bible is rich with what God has to say about the call to prayer. Consider doing a topical study of intercession in the Bible.

Locate Resources

There are a multitude of resources available to help you establish a rhythm for praying on behalf of others, including daily prayer guides and how to pray the Word. You can also easily locate prayer communities/groups to join.

Utilizing these tools will help you to get beyond the struggle of articulating your prayers and provide guidance. There is a beautiful grace upon you as you start a life of prayer, just keep going and growing!


TTC led me out of darkness and into the love I’ve longed for my entire life, the love of JESUS.  They’ve taught me to love like Jesus by walking out my created purpose.  My Spirit has been healed, I am whole, because of their obedience to do God’s will.  They have introduced me to and welcomed me into a powerful tribe of women that love Jesus with their whole heart.  Women that strengthen, teach, support, and encourage one another with the power and authority given by the Holy Spirit.  I am eternally grateful for their ministry and humbled to be called family.
