Birthing the Bold Through Intercession
“One of the things released to Earth through these prayers (our prayers mixed with incense from the throneroom of God) is bold voices. For my ancestors, these bold voices were revivalists and white Christian abolitionists who became voices for the voiceless. They knew any Christian who was a slave was their brother, and they laid down their lives for them. Many abolitionists had their houses burned, were shot, killed, or lynched, because they chose to suffer with the people of God like Moses did with the children of Israel, rather than compromise and wink at slavery. Their storylines are threaded together with their Christian brothers in slavery as they prayed and advocated for their freedom.” (Will Ford in The Dream King)1
“And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.” (Acts 4:31; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Want to be a revivalist? Pray!
- Want to be an Evangelist, a Pastor, a Teacher, a Prophet, or an Apostle? Sacrificially intercede!
- Watch for the instructions, open doors, and Divine appointments that materialize. Pray for the bold faith to follow those instructions, go through those doors and walk together in those unique relationships.
- Pray and ask God how to be a voice for the voiceless and an advocate for freedom for the limited. Now, go do what He says without thought for yourself.
A prayer you can pray:
God, I want to be a revivalist! I want to fulfill the call You have placed on my life! Stir my heart to intercession more than ever before. Stir my passion for the needs of people who don’t yet know You. Let me lay down my life in intercession for the needs of the nation. I will watch for Your divine leading, for open doors that no man can shut, and for relationships to materialize for Your “now” purposes. Make me a voice for the voiceless and an advocate for freedom for the marginalized. In Jesus’ name, amen.
The bold and fearless prayers of saints filled with the Holy Spirit will shake the U.S. harvest of souls free!
