RHEMA 1/20/98: PRAYING PROPHETICALLY
HEARD: Salt. It's the right time.
[Lord can You give me a Word via the Ponder Book?]
IMPRESSION: Turn to the second page of the
Table of Contents. I closed my eyes and put my finger on
the page, scrolling down the left side. Still with my
eyes closed, I stopped my finger scroll.
I opened my eyes and my finger was on the Word PRAY!
This was very special because I hadn't read the Ponder
book since it was printed and I had no idea what was on
the Table of Contents on that page. This was a real
comfort to me about the upcoming conference. If all I
did was pray for people, that was enough.
WORD TO PONDER: PRAY
If you truly understood what takes place the moment you
pray, then you would truly never cease. When you pray it
sends the angels to go forth and make a way. Many
operations take place behind the scenes to dove tail My
Faithfulness in someone's life. One of the basic
foundations of such is prayer. Angels are prepared and
ready. They listen, awaiting to be dispatched with
assignment. Prayer looses them to fight through
obstacles, frees them to go forth, prepares events, and
sets things in motion.
Did you know that when you pray for others, it has
eternal value? Some day when you come here, you will
stand before all those you have prayed for and see how
those simple requests made a difference in their lives.
You will see entire destinies altered because you
stopped to pray one simple prayer. Can you imagine it?
If you only understood the power I have given into your
hands to make a difference.
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in
the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance
and supplication for all saints.” (Ephesians 6:18)
UPDATE COMMENT: This was a Word that burned in
my heart in preparation for the conference. I came
prepared and in full faith that my prayers would make a
difference for those I prayed for. I am so grateful for
His Words that build and confirm.
ANOINTED HANDS: Prayers are answered. Power of
prayer to give success and victory. I will defend this
RHEMA 1/23/98: PRAYING AT THE CONFERENCE
VISION: I saw a glowing dawn. It was amber
colored and radiant as though it was the glory of the
Lord dawning. It was more like a golden color, no pink,
a little orange, but mostly a golden bright and light
colored amber glow. Perhaps like fire?? When I saw it, I
felt it was the glory of the Lord just dawning.
HEARD: Open door.
UPDATE COMMENT: Bob Jones' shepherds rod
has a note from Rick JoYner that says, “Note: This is a
year for the glory of the Lord to be revealed to the
church, and for victories to come to Israel. “Then
brought he me the way of the north gate before the
house: and I looked, and, behold, the glory of the LORD
filled the house of the LORD: and I fell upon my face.”
PIX: I saw the gal I was praying for at the
conference last night and she was listening intently
into a phone receiver as I prayed. Then she looked at
her friends and joyfully expressed in her face something
like, “Isn't this something else????” She was so
delighted at what she was hearing. Then she hurried her
ear back to the phone because I didn't stop praying and
she didn't want to miss a word! When I saw this I
received the same joy she was feeling and the Lord was
feeling, so this gave me great delight to see this
picture. It really encouraged me to pray for people what
was on my heart to pray and not worry about giving
UPDATE COMMENT: I so loved ministering at
the conference. It was more and more powerful each
service, and it was so awesome I have hardly contained
my joy. What was most amazing to me was that I received
over 95% direct confirmations and a thank you from the
people I prayed for. I wasn't expecting that, and it
sure was a good planting of faith to have such direct
I discovered that His prophetic "Words" can flow through
prayer. I was so nervous that I would not receive
prophetic Words for people, but all I did was pray and
they were Words.
One neat confirmation was that I had prayed for a lady
by saying, “Lord make her a candle that disperses
darkness in the lives of those around her. Make her a
deliverer.” She went ballistic under the anointing.
Later, she told me that her husband had just had a
surprise birthday for her in January. Every person that
attended brought her a gift. No one knew who was coming
and that they were not supposed to bring gifts. EVERY
GIFT was a candle. Then she said that one year ago she
attended a conference and the person that prayed over
her said, “the Lord is going to make you a candle and a
THE FIRST NIGHT AT
I peeked out into
the auditorium which was packed with
about 1,200 people. My heart began to
race and all I could see in my mind’s
eye were lines and lines of people in
front of me! I ran back into the prayer
room and grabbed Rich’s hand and slapped
it onto my forehead. Rich was a very
special person. He had been hired to
pray for the company from which he’d
tried to previously resign, due to the
Lord’s calling upon his life to pray.
He is the only intercessor I know that
has the world’s salary to pray! I had
heard some of his stories of
intercession and he had my vote for
sure. So dear Rich smiled at my wide
eyes and started to pray. I relaxed and
received whatever the Lord wanted to
give me. It lasted less than a minute
and my prayer life changed from that
moment on. When ministry time came, the
Lord filled my mouth with prophetic
prayers. People gave me all kinds of
confirmation about reading their mail
and I was just amazed. I knew exactly
what I did NOT have before Rich’s
prayer! Praise the Lord for the simple
gift of laying on of hands!
