"Not everyone has this gift."
The Holy Spirit is a giver of gifts and distributes them as He wills. Intercessory prayer, is typically given to those who also have a strong sense of compassion and empathy for others. We all have the ability to pray for others, but the gift of intercession is the ability to pray God’s perfect will for a person or situation out of one’s intimate relationship with Him. The Israelites prayed, however Moses’ interceded.
