The word is from ἐντυγχάνω, which signifies 'to meet with, to intercede.' It refers to the intercession of Christ for His saints, whilein their present state, to bring them into conformity with the place justifying forgivenesshas given them, also to raise them above their trials, and lead them on as priests into the blessed joys and occupations of the sanctuary. Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25 . The Holy Spirit also, when they know not what to pray for as they ought, makes intercession for the saints with groanings which cannot be uttered. Romans 8:26,27 . In 1 Timothy 2:1 we are instructed to make intercession for all men. It is remarkable that a substantive (ἔντευξις) formed from the above verb is used in 1 Timothy 4:5 , where food is sanctified bythe word of God and 'prayer,' or, as it there means, reverent intercourse with Him.
