The Intercessor Ministries, Inc.

Dr. Benny Beckum, beloved Evangelist, is the founder and President of The Intercessor Ministries, Inc. When his dear wife, Diane, was diagnosed with cancer, he realized his prayer life was lacking. He rediscovered the “prayer closet,” locked himself in and began to do serious business with the Lord. Mrs. Diane Beckum died on July 11, 2001. In the heartache of that loss, Dr. Beckum embraced the grace of God and the comfort of the Holy Ghost that he found in his prayer closet. After long hours, locked away with the Lord in his closet of prayer, the Lord spoke to his heart and helped him understand the absolute necessity of prayer and how woefully lacking most Christians are in this important spiritual discipline. God ignited his heart with a passion for prayer and forged there a vision for revival – calling God’s people back to their prayer closets. This was the birth of The Intercessor Ministries.  National and regional prayer conferences, The Intercessor Magazine, “Prayer for Revival” a textbook for Bible colleges on the subject of prayer, and forty-eight week long prayer revivals every year are a few of the ways Dr. Beckum is being used of God to call us back into our prayer closets so that we would gain a deeper understanding and awareness of God in every aspect of our lives.

In 2015 Dr. Beckum was married to Jeannette. He, Jeannette, and her daughter Julia, travel together to the prayer revivals all over the country. He also continues to preach on many college campuses and is continuing to write books in hopes that fellow Christians would gain a deeper understanding and awareness of God in every aspect of their lives.

Our Statement of Faith

We accept the scripture of both the Old and New Testament to be the verbally inspired Word of God, and that they are the supreme and final authority for our faith and practice. We further accept the King James Version of the Bible to be the preserved Word of God, for the English speaking people.

We believe in the triune God who is eternal in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of Christ; His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death for the sins of the world, His bodily resurrection, His exaltation at God’s right hand, His personal, imminent and premillennial return.

We believe all men are sinners and are guilty before God, in need of a savior.

We believe that men are born again through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ; that they become the children of God, eternally saved; that the Holy Spirit dwells within every believer to guide and help him in his testimony and service.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved in Glory, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost in Hell.

We believe that all believers have a responsibility to take the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ into the entire world.
