Although He in no means needs to do so, God graciously chooses to work through His children to accomplish His purpose. Part of His perfect plan in doing so is to work through the intercessory prayers of His followers. The Scriptures put a special emphasis on the importance of believers interceding on behalf of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, not only for physical needs, but also for spiritual growth and effectiveness.
