Title: Intercession

Main Text: Ezekiel 22:30

Preacher: Pastor Paul Orimolusi

God is looking for a person that would stand in the gap for the nation, church, family, individuals etc.

What does the term "Intercession" mean?
- Pleading on behalf of others to avert Judgement 
- Easing pain and sorrow off people's life
- Becoming a burden bearer.

Jesus our intercessor came to earth to stand in the gap for us.
He wants us to do the same for others

You may ask, who could be an Intercessor? 
God expects everyone of us to be intercessors. Weather or not you are a leader, a follower, a worker/employee etc
