Intercession basically means to stand between two extremes. It means to earnestly plead with a person on behalf of another. This can take a number of forms, praying for healing or interceding for the lost.
On one side we have the extreme of God, perfect in holiness and justice and on the other side we have the extreme of rebellion found in people of the world. Intercessory prayer happens when we stand in the gap between God and others.
