3 Powerful Things Prophetic Intercession Does in Your Life

by | Oct 15, 2018 | Blogs, God Encounters Today

In prophetic intercession, the Spirit of God pleads the covenant promises made throughout history to be enacted in our day.

This inspired form of intercession is the urge to pray, given by the Holy Spirit, for a situation or circumstance about which you may have little natural knowledge. But you are praying the prayer request that is on the heart of God.

As much as any time in history, it is time for believers in Jesus to take up the call to pray what is in the heart of God to be enacted for this generation!

How Does Prophetic Intercession Work?

He nudges you to pray so that He can intervene. The Holy Spirit Himself directs you to pray in a divine manner to bring forth His will on earth as it already is in heaven.

In other words, prophetic intercession is the ability to receive a prayer request from God and pray it back to Him. God’s hand comes on you, and He imparts His burden to you.

Prophetic intercession is not as much praying to God as it is praying with God!

Oh my! What a difference! Your God-inspired, God-directed intercession is powerful and effective.

Prophetic intercessors do not take those little plastic “promise boxes” with Bible verses inside and randomly select a verse to pray through. Instead, they combine waiting, listening and reading the Scriptures with letting the Holy Spirit remind them of the particular promise that is on His heart at that moment.

They let God’s heartbeat pulse in their own beings.

Prophetic intercession pleads for the maturity of the body of Christ—that the society of redeemed mankind would expand to the ends of the earth. It is the place where the priest and prophet unite, calling “for the earth [to] be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea” (Hab. 2:14).

3 Definitions of Prophetic Intercession

  1. Prophetic intercession is the ability to receive an immediate prayer request from God and pray about it in a divinely anointed utterance.
  2. Prophetic intercession is waiting before God in order to “hear” or receive God’s burden (God’s Word, His concern, warning, conditions, vision or promises), responding back to the Lord and then to the people with appropriate actions.
  3. Prophetic intercession is not as much praying to God as it is praying with God. We let go of our agendas and we take the time to receive the desires that are in God’s heart. Thus, prophetic intercession (revelatory prayer) is praying with God!

Prayer to Have God’s Heart

Father, in the mighty name of the Son of God, I ask that You bring my heart into union with Yours so that it can bear with the burdens and desires that are in Your heart. Give me both an increase of the Spirit of revelation and the supernatural authority to stand in the gap in the name of Jesus. I want to pray Your prophetic promises into being. Amen. {eoa}
