Intercession is not a recognized occupation.
Prayer is usually unnoticed by the crowds. It’s hidden - nobody knows about our hours in the prayer room - it feels lowly – When you pray, you are trusting in God rather than yourself - it’s humbling because right in the middle of the prayer room you are confronted with the humility of Jesus. You begin to taste something very important about Jesus - and you see your own lack - your pride and sin. Self rises up when unnoticed. We all want to be important, but ... Jesus became nothing ... so that we could be set free.
We must do the same and learn to embrace the cross. He was obedient and God lifted Him high and honored Him. The Message Bible says in Philippians 2:8-11:
“Because of that obedience, God lifted him high and honored him far beyond anyone or anything, ever, so that all created beings in heaven and on earth - even those long ago dead and buried - will bow in worship before this Jesus Christ, and call out in praise that he is the Master of all, to the glorious honor of God the Father.”
