Through intercession an intimate place of our friendship with the Lord is revealed. We carry the burdens, the needs and cares of the people before our God. Our hearts burn for the needs of our congregation, the broken, the city and the nation(s). All are called to pray, yet the Lord has also called some as watchman. As we read in Psalm 127:1, we see that the job of the watchman is a partnership with God.
We are like the control tower at an airport directing air traffic ensuring that the messages being received hit the target / land. It involves operating out of God's war room, applying spiritual mapping, establishing what God is doing in the earth. It is a solution focused prayer approach.
Our earthly perspectives are limited, so thankfully as believers and intercessors we are in Christ, and Christ is in us, and we are seated in heavenly places with Him, and as such we have a Holy Spirit perspective and discernment to pray from heaven to earth. This gives us a revelatory insight to stake a claim and war for what needs to be loosed and bound. We partner with God for what He is doing, saying, establishing, and eliminating.
As intercessors we collaborate with God to bring a shift to this generation that is God’s heart. Our heart beats with His heart, we are breathing together with Him, like carrying the womb of God, and like midwives, we literally labour to give birth in the spirit. As intercessors our call is not to crumble under the weight of the circumstances, but rising above them. Rejoicing in the joy that is set before us in union with God. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. As we persist in faith and knock on the door, He is faithful, He will open it for us.
