“….there seem to be some Christians who have a special capacity to pray with fervor, persistence, and effectiveness”
Prayer warriors are people who are known for regularly interceding on behalf of others before God. To intercede means to come between, so prayer warriors are, in effect, coming between God and the trouble in another person's life.

A prayer Warrior has a living relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ. Praying for others does require an intimacy that permits us to come into the Lord’s presence without fear or shame. The writer of Hebrews makes this vividly clear; “Therefore, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus . . . .let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith”. Heb 10: 19-22 NIV
A prayer Warrior shares Jesus’ heart of compassion for those that are wounded, abused, sick, addicted, desperate, and hopeless. In the synagogue in Nazareth, Jesus bared his heart for people; “The Lord’s Spirit has come to me, because he has chosen me to tell the good news to the poor. The Lord has sent me to announce freedom for prisoners, to give sight to the blind, to free everyone who suffers, and to say, ‘This is the year the Lord has chosen.’” Luke 4: 18-19 CEV
A prayer Warrior believes that, although God is sovereign and can do whatever He pleases, He has granted us the great privilege of participating with Him in His redemption process through prayer. James says, “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results. Elijah was human as we are, and yet when he prayer earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for the next three and a half years! Then he prayer for rain and down it poured. The grass turned green, and the crops began to grow again.” James 5: 16b-18 NLT
