The beauty of this picture of Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane shows the power of intercession. We are all called to intercede for one another in prayer. Intercessory prayer is the reason for my conversion. Without those prayers from others, who knows where I would have ended up in my life. The healing I have received from God from my painful past was sparked from prayer. We need to realize that prayer is a gift of Love that opens the door for God to work within us and through us. Through my own life I have seen how prayer has changed my cold broken heart to a loving heart full of compassion for others.
