"Beware of thinking that intercession means bringing our own personal sympathies and concerns into the presence of God and then demanding that He do whatever we ask. Our ability to approach God is due entirely to the vicarious, or substitutionary, identification of our Lord with sin. We have 'boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus.' Vicarious intercession means that we deliberately substitute God's interests in others for our natural sympathy with them." --Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost for His Highest.
