Loving intercession is only useful in this respect that power is supplied to fellow man, which lifts his weakened will that he therefore receives power through the intercession to turn to God himself. Read more:

On this website are several webpages that deal with intercession and this now following message by Bertha Dudde is another one:

 

Intercession through fellow man.

20. Oktober 1945. B.D. NR. 3582.

How little wise is it to evade the direct connection with God and to want to make use of a fellow man whose prayer it to be of use for him. God only pays attention to prayer, which is send up to him in deepest love for the neighbour, and the power of love now is a help to the needy. But every other prayer is useless. In his compassionate love God sends suffering and trouble upon man to move him to put his trust boundlessly in him, to move him to establish the right relationship of a child to the father, because only then the power of divine love can touch the heart of man and through this supply of power his soul is helped to develop itself upwards spiritually. When this intimate connection is disregarded then the supply of power is only little and also only guaranteed when the intercession for fellow man comes out of a loving heart otherwise man remains completely without power and his soul must live in want. A man can never achieve for his fellow man the transformation of the nature, but he must become active himself; he himself must turn his will towards God and get in touch with him to be able to receive power. Loving intercession is only useful in this respect that power is supplied to him, which lifts his weakened will that he therefore receives power through the intercession to turn to God himself. This supply of power is the effect of love of fellow man; but without love every prayer is useless because only deep love can cause that a prayer is sent in spirit and in truth to God, and is then also successful. God demands the connection with him, which every man can establish when he wants. Who relies on the prayer of a fellow man, his will is not yet meant for God, and so also that prayer remains ineffective. With an intimate heartfelt groan man can achieve far more than a long prayer is able to do, which is without this intimacy, as also the intimate thought towards God earns him more power than a prayer of intercession through fellow man. But God values the degree of love of him who prays for his fellow man because love is always power-giving and therefore also a loving intercession does not remain ineffective. And that is why again and again great suffering and bitter misery comes upon individual man because he is supposed to not forget him who alone can help, because he is to establish the right relationship, which alone secures to him the power supply from God, and because he is to become active himself to be able to score success for his soul. And men are not to forget this, that fellow man can never relieve them of the responsibility, that everyone must answer for himself and therefore must also become active with himself and that they can only execute this activity with the help of God, on whom they have to call for power and loving care, so that they reach their goal, so that their souls mature on earth. Amen. B.D. NR. 3582.

 

See Prayer of intercession.

We therefore do not try to transform the nature of fellow man, but we merely pray that love power is supplied to the needy, that he can receive power, that power is supplied to him, which lifts his weakened will, that he therefore receives power through intercession to turn to God himself.
