God bless and multiply everything your hands touch, dear ones!
I want to share another awesome time of prayer and worship I had today and also introduce to the latest PWPP effective prayer teaching module, Opening Spiritual Doors. Remember ... worship is warfare.
I worshiped with my prayer partner and then when I was fully in the spirit I began to worship in my prayer language. This was what my spirit spoke to Him:
The God of the highest heavens speaks with a voice of thunder. Speak Your decrees, Most High. Speak Your commands and cause the enemy to scatter. Rule for me, Lord. Speak for me (this is in reference to some spiritual lawsuits I have in His court right now).
I heard, "I rule FOR you. I love the way you come before me."
Thank You for hearing and seeing me. Please confirm Your Word with signs following.
I heard, "Take up your shield and fight."
I spoke in authority:
I decree I'm advancing with my shield of faith. I see heaven's army going before me to clear the path of the riff-raff and I say I'm moving forward with my shield of faith to collect the spoils. The enemy cannot stay on my path; the enemy cannot stay on this battlefield. I'm going to take this territory for the Kingdom of God. I will collect the spoils as the enemy runs in fear.
While I was making my decree I moved about my prayer room and saw the battlefield clearing out and the enemy being pushed back. Then I began to sing and I saw an army of heavenly soldiers in armor on horseback and the first lifted a banner.
Then I met with Holy Spirit for specific revelation for my life and day ahead.
I asked in a recent PWPP podcast episode that if you're not partnering with heaven when you pray, what exactly are you doing? Effective prayer requires Biblical principles to be utilized and listening and responding to heaven is necessary to live abundant life in Christ. I know I'm always talking about abundance but that's because I've already got average. I speak abundance because that's what I'm working toward, moving toward and in expectation of. My God is excellent and I want what a King's favored daughter deserves.
Now about Opening Spiritual Doors. I went through a process to have heaven open above me so that I could fight the battle I completed today in prayer and you can learn how to do that in this and my other teachings. You got that right, I engaged the enemy to receive from God by completing and winning a battle today in prayer in less than an hour. No, every battle isn't that easy. Matter of fact the battles before and after receiving this revelation had me irritated, crying, hurt and ready to quit. But I won and that's another promotion for me.
My assignment for 2015 is to teach effective prayer. I try to do that in everything I do. I wish I could pray with everyone individually for a season so that you could really learn from me, but I haven't found a way to do that, yet. That's why I write and teach to mentor you, but it's not quite the same thing as tackling a specific issue or need with you in the moment.
If your church doesn't have a system to teach you how to pray effectively, consider inviting me to come and model it. Your prayer and worship should be just as powerful as mine is. You should have evidence that your requests have been heard and received by heaven just like I do. Again if you're not participating with heaven when you pray, what are you doing?
I bless you in Jesus' name.
