I sense the Lord saying that His people ought to live a prophetic lifestyle, to converse with Him, because He is not far away from them, for in him they live and move and exist Acts17:28, and they are His sheep enabled to hear His voice John 10:27
I believe His heart’s desire for us is to converse with Him which is prophetic praying in its simplest form – not only talking to God about what is on our mind but also listening to learn what is on His heart and thereafter responding accordingly.
I also believe that prophetic praying fosters an intimate relationship with God, praying according to what is on God’s heart, agreeing with His purposes Matthew 6:10 for ourselves and others, praying with authority and faith facilitating miracles as we see in the life of Elijah who prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.’ James 5:17-18
The Lord wants us to be a prophetic people to pray prophetically with prophetic insight, revelation given to us by the Holy Spirit something we would not know by natural means, but supernaturally the Father’s purpose and intent which would assist our prayer.
The power of prophetic prayer, would teach us how to pray advantageously in line with God’s word to get results.
That through prayer and fellowship with the Father we get to know His heart and what He is doing from moment to moment in our daily living and values which helps us respond to people the way He would, being empowered to witness His love and power to others.
God wants His people through prophetic praying out of His heart being led by His Spirit hearing His voice in to encourage, edify, and exhort them for His purpose in their lives.
You do not have to have to be a prophet to use prophetic prayer. Any Spirit-filled Christian can pray prophetically.
As sons and daughters, our Father wants to have a relationship; He wants to speak to each of us. On the other hand, if you do have a prophetic gift, then prophetic praying would enhance and sharpen it.
We know that prophetic praying can alter history and reshape the world, yet many believers don’t because of ignorance or not being persuaded of its effectiveness. If they only knew how it enables one to experience the power and presence of God in all areas of life, then it would not be just a religious exercise.
Be Blessed and Highly Favoured!
