In the great controversy between good and evil, God has established some basic ground rules. He will not violate freedom of choice. He does everything He can to save each individual. He sends His angels. The Holy Spirit impresses hearts. He arranges circumstances in each life. But He only goes so far. Intercessory Prayer unleashes Heaven's power. God honors our choice for others. His life-giving love is poured out through us to them. Intercessory Prayer is also a channel for God's wisdom to flow through us to reach others. He provides us with the knowledge to share His love. He gives us the keys to their hearts.
