When we come to Christ our first ministry will always be Him!
Developing prayer, and our communion and communication with God, will always be our number one Ministry.
Then we learn to intercede for others as we pray for one another. But then there is a gift or enablement that goes beyond normal prayer. This is the gift of the Intercessory Prayer Warrior.
These are those in secret, who can be on their face for hours and days, fasting and praying until they get a breakthrough. They are anointed to do so and believe me they cannot stop until they feel the release of the breakthrough!
Anyone who is called to the prophetic, must learn that this road is less traveled and take the route of the Intercessory Prayer Warrior.
It is very powerful if you can get with the group of Prayer Warriors who meet, because one will put a thousand of flight two will put 10,000 flight and just think how many things of darkness could be destroyed for we have been given the power to destroy the works of the devil.
If you are new or growing in your relationship with Christ and you desire to have a ministry, I can tell you for a fact, that if you step up to the plate as an Intercessor and a Prayer Warrior, you will live a very exciting and fulfilled life for The LORD and for a blessing to His People.
I thank God for those true Intercessors in my life. They are so valued to me above any other ministry and I thank God for them.
Becoming a serious Intercessor is no easy job. But to be on the front lines of battle can be excruciating, but it is so rewarding and it makes you strong and fulfilled.
Yes, you are headed for a collision course with darkness, but we win! Therefore, when heaven and hell meet, there is a collision just like when the barometric pressure drops, and you have that cold air collides with that warmer air, it sparks off tornadoes and all sorts of bad weather.
What is that little jingle? Fly the friendly skies of United! Literally, Prayer Warriors when we unite with one heart, one mind and one accord, we are a force to be reckoned with!
You must understand as an Intercessor that you stand in the gap or stand in the place of that person who cannot fight for themselves.
You literally take on another person’s burden and you feel aspects of what they are going through in your body.
You are literally standing in the gap between heaven and hell like Jesus did for us! We are His Ambassadors in this personally, nationally, and internationally. We stand in the gap for others even as he did for us.
Everything has been excruciating to my soul for days and it was wearing me down. Today I was reminded of what Job went through.
He was a righteous man, and he did not understand why he suffered. He was human and you know he had to wonder why he had to go through what he went through.
You know how little passing doubts and unbelief float through our hearing and our mind to plague all of us when we suffer. That type and kind of pressure can wear us down when all we hear is negativity.
We all have a breaking point and thank God He knows when that breaking point is, and He knows when to intervene. Have you ever wondered why God allows it?
He wants us to know the revelation of who we are in Christ and what were made of and how far we’ve come! The LORD knows how much we can bear. We are never tested by God without being prepared.
Had I not known who I was in Christ, the personal relationship I have with Him, and my security that comes only from His abiding Presence, I would have died.
With the number of missiles, arrows, and bombarding thoughts that plagues our mind, the enemy tries to get us to believe we are lost, a liar, false minister, or on our way to the grave and hell, but we rebuke all of that now in the name of Jesus Christ our Savior and LORD!
Pray and confess this:
I love The LORD with all my heart, soul, and strength!
I am endued with power from on high and no weapon formed against me shall prosper and every tongue that rises up against me in judgment, I condemn every word for that’s my heritage and my righteousness is of The LORD Jesus Christ!
He made me righteous by purchasing me, with his precious blood that covers me, and I am enveloped in him and sealed with The Holy Spirit of promise unto the day of redemption!
And God has raised me up with Christ and seated me with him in heavenly places in Christ Jesus so that in the soon coming age The LORD will greatly display the surpassing riches of his grace demonstrated by the kindness he has shown me and continues to show me in Christ Jesus!
I thank God that He will never leave me or forsake me. In Jesus’ Name!
“Therefore take up the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you will be able to stand your ground, and having done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness arrayed, and with your feet fitted with the readiness of the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Pray in the Spirit at all times, with every kind of prayer and petition. To this end, stay alert with all perseverance in your prayers for all the saints. Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will boldly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20for which I am an ambassador in chains.” Ephesians 6:13-19.
Pray that I may proclaim it fearlessly, as I should.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
