What is Prophetic Intercession?
There's a lot of talk today about prophetic intercession, and intercessors. Well, what is an intercessor and what is intercession? Is it just praying? Is it a prayer? Can anyone do it? Is prophetic intercession something that any believer can do?
The Four P's of Prayer
The 4 P's are easy to remember - P for Prayer, and four different words that begin with P that are all related to prayer and describe a different type of prayer. I'm going to give you the 4 P's and then we're going to look at each one of them in detail.
Prophetic Intercession 1st P: Praise
What does praise do? Praise turns our attention from our problem to God. Romans 8:28 says, "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God and are the called according to His purpose." In recent decades there's been a resurgence and a revelation of fresh revival and restoration of praise in the church of the living God.
All the time we're hearing what Satan is doing. We're not seeing what God is doing, and we become so focused on what Satan is doing, we become so focused on the evil that's in the world that our hearts become filled with fear and we wonder if God is there, and we tremble. Praise lifts your eyes off what is going on about you and in the world and puts your attention on the One who is on the throne.
If you're a prophetic intercessor, prophetic and intercessor are synonymous, because prophetic intercession is the main function of a prophet is not to predict and speak nice words of personal prophesy over people and tell them what their life purpose is going to be and who they're going to get married to, and whether they're going to be rich. People read horoscopes for that. Satan does that. That is not the work of the prophetic ministry.
The work of the prophetic ministry is to release the will of God into the earth. That's what we're supposed to be doing in prophetic intercession, and if we're going to do that we're going to have to start by coming into the throne room. You start your prophetic intercession with praise and worship until you become lifted up, and you come into the presence of Almighty God and you find yourself seated in the throne room in heavenly places. And from there you do your warfare. And from there you do your prophetic intercession.
Prophetic Intercession and Music
You might start just by walking around and singing in tongues. Music is the only thing that has the ability to take your mind and your emotions and your will, and bring them to flow all together in harmony at the same time, in tune with your spirit. And your whole spirit, soul and body begin to vibrate with the very power of God. And His glory begins to come upon you and begins to radiate forth from you as you begin to move into that.Query has failed
