What Are the Differences Between Intercessors and Prayer Warriors?

Intercessors prayer is fulfilling the need of praying for other people, while prayer warriors engage in a spiritual battle against Satan. The prayer warrior prays for an individual or a large group.

Jesus gave an example of intercessory prayer when he prayed for the people in the world. When a person says a favorable prayer for another person, they intervene for them. They act as a intermediary between the person and God for a precise reason.

In Orthodox Catholic religion, they rely on angels in heaven to act as a mediator in prayer with God on human’s behalf. However, according to the Protestant religion, they do prayer intervention in their services. In this doctrine, a person anointed with a special gift or talent to pray is a prayer warrior.

The prayer warrior is continuously in prayer and prays for the entire world or a large constituency. These warriors are similar to an army that protects and defends a group of people through prayer. They confront Satan with forcible prayers of spiritual warfare.

Prayer warriors are not always cohesive and agreeable on the subject. For example, during wars such as the Iraq War, many of them prayed for the war to end while others prayed for U.S. victory.
