The meaning of a reserve is "a fighting force kept uncommitted until strategic need arises—often used in the plural; a part of a country's armed forces not on active duty but subject to call in an emergency."
"He who scatters has come to you. Guard the fortifications! Watch the road! Prepare yourself, and strengthen yourself!" (Nah. 2:1).
The heavens are rumbling. Angels scramble urgently as their assignments are shouted out: "Alert My people to call in their kingdom reserves! Walls of prayer protection have been breached hindering the advancement of My kingdom! They must call in their reserves of 'intercessors' whom they have overlooked in the past but are urgently needed now."
Overlooked Intercessors Are Now Needed for Breakthrough
Strong orders are being given to the saints: "Forgive every brother or sister who has wounded you. Be reconciled. Some were born to intercede for your life and ministry!" Brothers and sisters holding offense against one another are hindering physical healing and spiritual advancement. Some, whom they are refusing to forgive, have the gift of healing for their bodies.
Overlooked Family Members Are Waiting in Reserve to Receive Their Call for Duty
Overlooked family members, including children, grandchildren and the unsaved, will launch many of God's people into never-before-seen breakthroughs.
I know other people and I have humbled ourselves before unsaved loved ones by asking them to pray for us. They were at first shocked we would honor and respect them that much, but then the Holy Spirit hovered over them, causing them to seriously consider, "Maybe I ought to learn how to pray, since I have been asked to." This knocked the walls down between the saved and unsaved. Many have experienced seeing unsaved loved ones pray themselves into God's kingdom through this kind of prayer request.
Many Children Need to Phone Home to Their Parents to Call in Their Reserve of Wisdom to Win Their War
The older I get, the more I realize my parents were right. When my mother was still living at 90 years old, there was seldom a day went by that I didn't call her on the phone. Why? I was still learning much from her. I think that's why God kept her living for my sake and others. She kept outliving her doctors and diseases. Her wisdom was outlasting her enemies, and mine, too
If Married, Your Spouse Is Your Most Powerful Intercessor Waiting in Reserve
I have many intercessors around the world praying for me and my ministry. One day, God showed me prayers from intercessors rising to the throne on my behalf. Then, all of a sudden, I saw my wife's prayer shooting upward like lightning, surpassing every other prayer on earth, reaching the Father's throne room instantly and getting immediate attention!
Don't ask your wife to pray "for" you but to pray "with" you. Agreement in prayer produces victories that can take place in no other way! Praying in the Spirit together especially gives you an intimacy that brings breakthroughs in the natural realm.
The Name of Jesus Is Waiting in Reserve to Shatter Your Enemy to Pieces
I sense many are overlooking the power that is in the name of Jesus, the name above every name. Use it continually. When you just can't seem to pray, whisper the name of Jesus. The most powerful prayers in crises are the shortest. Just saying "Jesus" captures His attention and wreaks havoc in hell.
The Reserve Call for Ministries to Connect, Pray and Flow Together in Battle
Has the Lord called you to a ministry and then seemingly left planet Earth? Does it seem like He is not paying attention to you and "your" individual ministry? The reason the Lord is not paying attention to individual ministries right now is because it isn't the season for individual ministries. God is seeing through corporate vision. He has the whole world in His heart. The best thing we can do is forget about ourselves and "our" ministry long enough to humble ourselves and prefer and esteem others' ministries above our own, then reach out and connect with them to receive the corporate anointing He is releasing this hour.
Each of us needs corporate power to be launched into our purpose. As ministries confess their weaknesses and pray one for another, healing will flow like mighty waterfalls.
