Intercessory prayer courses teach the methods and procedures of intercessory prayer. These courses are taught by Catholic and Protestant Christian churches and groups that believe that through prayer, God can intercede in the problems and affairs of life that confront believers.
Catholic Christians believe that the Saints as well as Jesus Christ, Mary and God may be prayed to for intercession. Most Protestant groups hold that Jesus is the only intercessor and that prayers are to be directed to Jesus Christ or God directly for intercession in the affairs of mankind.
Regardless, intercessory prayer courses teach the methods and procedures of praying effectively so that an individual may get his prayer heard by God and by others who may intercede in pleading his case before God.
