How are we praying in these troubling times?
Are we praying the right way? How do we know what The Holy Spirit wants us to pray?
A couple weeks ago I was praying against the Coronavirus (COVID-19). In the middle of my prayer, The LORD stopped me and said, “Why aren’t you praying for the bigger things? Don’t pray for the symptom, pray for the root cause!”
He then led me to pray against the bigger problem, and has put it in my heart to urge others to do so too.
The only way to know what and how to pray is to get out of our own mindset and what we want to see happen and get into the mind of God.
God said that His Children perish for lack of knowledge. We must delve into the mind of Christ and pray as the Spirit gives us utterance.
About a month ago I heard The Spirit speak in the night in my sleep.
He said, “The gates of intercession are now open.“
Then as I was waking up I heard, “Jesus, the Intercessor, the Voice between 2 dimensions.”
Jesus intercedes and prays for you! He prays the Father’s will. We must hear what He is praying and speak it out.
Vision of Jesus, Our Intercessor
The concept of Jesus praying for us was a brand new concept for me until I had a powerful vision a few years ago.
The Spirit lifted me up high above America and I was looking below at a live picture of a map of the United States.
The states were all marked out with borders, and Jesus, dressed in white, was sitting on His side, half reclining, reaching His right hand on top of several stares on the east coast.
He was sad, compassionate and loving, all in one. The states He was praying for were brown, and several areas behind Him were brown also, (Brown means compassion).
He was almost weeping over these areas. Something was going to occur in the future, I felt, that needed prayer.
Then I was taken right up to Him, zooming in a split second from being suspended above. I found myself standing before Him, with a few other Intercessor lady friends.
I asked Him, “Jesus, what can we do for You? How can we pray for You?”
The vision continued with Him teaching us, but that was forgotten as I came out of this experience. I researched the Word and listened to The Holy Spirit a long time before I understood that Jesus wants us to pray with Him, to bring the Father’s will into being.
We are one with Him and need to pray His will into being.
How Do We Pray?
We get out of the way!
Our minds must be left on the altar and be joined with the mind of Christ.
We worship, soak in His Presence and be still before Him. When we feel the heavy holy Presence come upon us, we will pray what He Prays.
When we pray in the supernatural language of Heaven, in tongues, we are praying His perfect will. We don’t understand what we are saying sometimes, but He does.
He has given us a gift of being able to utter things only the Spirit understands.
God is raising up an Army of Intercessors
God is calling out for more watchmen on the wall! Our voice is needed to see what the Father is doing and speak what He is saying.
He is asking, “Who will go? Who will sacrifice all to become My Voice?”
May we ask for a deeper intercessory prayer life! May we humble ourselves before Him and be His Voice in this time of history.
“For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered,” Romans 8:26.
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all The LORD’s people,”Ephesians 6:18.
“From the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard,”Daniel 10:12.
