6th - 11th November 2017

“Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication” (NRSV). - “You did not choose me but I chose you” (NRSV).

From 6th to 11th November 2017, there will be in Gaborone an International Training Course on Intercession, called: “A call to prophetic Intercession”. 

The ICCRS Intercession Training Course, which is a one-week school, is the concrete realization of the desire to form a large family of intercessors worldwide. Intercession, being at the heart of evangelization and mission, is well rooted in the Catholic tradition. It concerns all Christians, not just those who are members of a particular group or movement.

St. Paul, as with the Ephesians Christian community, makes this appeal: “Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication” (Ep 6:18). May that request be an invitation for us to turn to the Father, in the Spirit of Jesus.

The course includes Mass, Holy Hour and charismatic praise and worship on a daily basis, as well as silent Eucharistic adoration, intercessory rosary, various talks on intercession, intercession outreach in groups/prophetic intercession in groups, and so on.


  • Growth in holiness
  • Development of trust in God in all things
  • Deeper spiritual reflection
  • Meditation on the life of Jesus, the main intercessor
  • Full opening to the Holy Spirit, who is dwelling in us, strengthens us and gives us all the tools necessary for intercession

Several topics will be discussed such as:

  • What is intercession? Deepening our understanding
  • The call and urgency of intercession
  • Spiritual warfare in intercession
  • The repentant intercessor
  • Prophetic intercession
  • Suffering and intercession
  • The four wheels of intercession: Personal prayer, Word of God, Sacraments and fellowship
  • Tools for effective intercession

Requirements for participation:

  • Brief curriculum vitae with evidence of leadership background
  • Letter of recommendation from your National Service Committee or leaders of your community
  • Letter of recommendation from your parish priest or spiritual director
  • One passport photo

May the Holy Spirit inspire the creation of ministries and intercessory centers in the Church to "stand in the gap" before God and intercede for the coming of God's Kingdom.
