Intercession can be simply described as the act of saying a prayer or making a statement on behalf of another person or group of persons. The ministry of intercession is as old as human history itself and it can come in different forms. For example, in Genesis 4:15 we see God ‘interceding’ for Cain – a murderer:
And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

In Numbers 11:1-3, we see God’s representative (Moses), interceding for Israel when the judgment of God came upon them. The anger of the Lord was kindled against the children of Israel because they misbehaved. They cried to God’s representative in their midst who then cried to the Lord, and the result was highly rewarding.

There are many lessons from this story, pointing to the benefits of intercession. One, it is a blessing to have a man that God listens to on your side. This tells us the type of Church leader we should choose for ourselves. Two, it is one thing to have a leader that God listens to and yet another to be able to approach such a person with your problems. The children of Israel cried to Moses and he in turn cried to God. The third lesson we should learn here is that the children of Israel chose to cry to God through Moses because they knew their sin would prevent God from hearing them. Isaiah 59:1-2 says that iniquity would make God hide His face and not hear sinners. The fourth lesson is that we should live the life that will make us have direct access to our Father in heaven. The Bible says, “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus” – (Hebrews 10:19).

With Jesus in our lives, we can effectively intercede and gain God’s attention and favour.

I believe in praying to God directly than through any one born of a woman.

Then why is Muhammad included in the shahada?

Allah willed it so that the confession of faith which is dedicated to him, will be inadequate unless one of his creations is partnered with him?

How is it a partnership?

Does it look like father, son, wife and baby Ghost?

God is to be followed through the Prophets he send!

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. John 17:3

It's a partnership because prophet Sex Award Winner (SAW) is a beneficiary of some of the worship reserved for allah himself.

We know that all praise is meant for allah:

Yet allah's apostle is named The Praised One:

We also know that allah spends morning and evening lavishing praise on The Praised One:

If that is not a partnership in praise, nothing else qualifies.
