Prophetic Prayer Update May 2011
by Prophet Phyllis Ford
May 13, 2011
Keep on pushing. Keep on pressing!!!
The Lord shared with me that when May entered in that with it came such strong intercession, and it shifted some things that were averted upon the first week of the month. (Which means that this intercession came forth before the month of May). I can’t begin to tell you how awesome that statement was to me. It is important to mark these occurrences where we spiritually establish a beachhead so that it continues to encourage us all-- So that we move forward and stay focused.
I know personally of reports of various groups in ministry leadership, as well as “boots on the ground intercessors” and how some went to various places and others sensitive to the urgency--- begin to pray. I believe that when that type of mobilization comes forth at the same time the strategies of God are released, and those who are locked into His pathway begin to spontaneously work together then the purposes of God are established. Needless to say, we should not take credit for what God has done. But we must rejoice and give praise to God for the victory, and hold the ground that has been taken on behalf of the Kingdom and continue to press on.
The Word reveals to us very clearly that fasting and praying can avert judgment as it did in the days of Jonah and Nineveh. The familiar scripture in 2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us how the prayers from His people coupled with repentance, change, and seeking the face of God can heal the land and the people. But the scripture that the Lord spoke to me was:
James 5:16 (Amplified version): Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray (also) for one another, that you may be healed and restored (to a spiritual tone of mind and heart.) The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available (dynamic in its working.)
When we, as people, can come together, confess to one another our faults---our areas of offenses, our sins and then pray for each other with love and without prejudice (or partiality) ----healing and restoration begins to take place. That honesty and integrity in prayer has power and is dynamic in the way it resolves matters. This kind of sacrifice laid before the altar of prayer begins to help us remove the infirmities of our land and places a blanket of protection over our souls. I know that the prayer watch-level has increased, and we should not slack up now; but I believe we should press on all the more, so that we can gain new ground and uncover places where the enemy has resided. The way the Lord said it to me was:
· Let us pray: Together and often.
· Let us pray: So that our children will not be destroyed by evil men.
· Let us pray: The will of the Kingdom will be made manifest in our lives.
· Let us pray: That we will be delivered from every work of sin/iniquity that we have received from generations before us.
· Let us pray: That there be no gods before us other than the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Let’s move forward in the grace that He has placed upon us and continue to pray. I cannot tell you that we don’t face greater trouble in the days ahead, even minutes ahead. PLEASE DO NOT CEASE TO PRAY FOR ISRAEL. I hear the scripture Isaiah 62:11: Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. Shalom.
P.S. Some say PUSH (Pray Until Something Happens)---- but my husband always says PUSH (Prayer Unlocks Secured Harvest)----- and I hear now PRESS (Prayer Releases Effectual Successful Service). It is our reasonable service unto to Lord Most High to continue in our prayer efforts. Watchmen, Intercessors, Hand Maidens, Worshippers ---I salute you.
SPECIAL NOTE: INCREASE YOUR PRAYER ALERT LEVEL --- EXTREMELY HIGH FOR JERUSALEM
