Goll, Franklin, TN Prophetic intercession is near and dear to my heart. I love the way God nudges me to pray about something so that He can intervene. I have seen so many amazing answers to prophetic prayer!

Such prayers strike the mark much more often than those I invent out of my own limited heart and mind.

Recognizing that they had a role to play in bringing those divine promises into being, they began to watch and pray. The verse quoted above gives a glimpse into what I am trying to describe: Prophetic intercession paves the way for the fulfillment of prophetic promises.

Power Up the Prophetic Promises God has made and continues to make promises. The promises may be historical covenant promises that God has made to His people, truths that have been preached, "prayer burdens," or spontaneous, Spirit-inspired utterances. What makes them prophetic is that they reveal something that was hidden in the heart of God until it was expressed. On behalf of someone else, the intercessor takes up a case of justice before a sovereign and entirely righteous God.

God is looking for the man or woman who will take up the plea, and He can hardly believe it when no one volunteers to stand in the gap. God taps the watchman on the shoulder and imparts a compelling awareness that it is time to pray for a very particular need: "Here Pray for this thing right now!

Photo via James Goll Often we call this "receiving a prayer burden," and it can mean much more than having a vague easy-to-ignore sense of a need. When Daniel took time to re-read the prophetic words of Jeremiah, suddenly he was convinced that they applied to the immediate future see Daniel His own prophetic senses alerted him to the imminent need expressed by the earlier prophetic promise.

Must we pray at length as Daniel did, with extreme fasting and weakness? Not unless that is what is called for. For the most part, we can cultivate our spiritual hearing in simple, practical ways. We get away from external distractions, as Jesus did when he withdrew before dawn to isolated locations see Mark When we hear something, we do something—write it down, pray from it, sound an alarm—whatever is appropriate. That is what the prophet Habakkuk did: "I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guardpost.

There I will wait to see what the Lord says and how He will answer my complaint. This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. It will not be delayed. He is more eager to speak to you than you are to hear from Him. She is an absolute Globe Trotter and has probably ministered to more governmental leaders than any person I know. She and her husband Mike co-founded a ministry called Generals International, which provides a platform from which they can launch prayer journeys, practical Biblical teaching, and more.

Sign up for the army! Tell the Lord that you are willing to be a watchman. Keep your heart pure so that you can properly discern areas for which God wants you to pray. Develop a God-consciousness in your life. Be aware at every moment that you are on call. Being a watchman is very much like being a doctor who carries a beeper. At any given moment he or she may be called up for an emergency. Pray that God will teach you the proper time and place to sound the alarm.

God reveals to intercessors the intimate needs of those for whom we intercede. This is a precious trust. The things God shares with us are not to be told to others. Many prayer groups are nothing more than spiritual gossip sessions. Do not be afraid to pray prayers that may seem unusual to you!

You may be praying, for instance, and all of a sudden you start praying for a pastor in South America whom you do not even know. Many watchmen have averted disasters that threaten people they have never met. There is great diversity in the Body of Christ, in the pastoral, evangelistic, prophetic ministry and in the global prayer movement also. I for one want to pray with the eyes of a watchman!

This prayer grace is not for an elite few—it is offered to those who hunger to take their place on the Walls of Intercession in their generation.

Prayer Lord, with You on my side, I can face any enemy. I trust You completely with my life because You are the highest, strongest, wisest, most trustworthy—and You love me in spite of my weaknesses. I am eternally grateful to enjoy right standing with You, completely free from condemnation or accusation.

He now sits at Your right hand where He always has Your ear, and I can come close, too. You have enlarged my heart so that I can intercede before You on behalf of others. Praying with Eyes Wide Open, Dr. James W.
