If you joined us for the Great Commission Day of Prayer on May 21st, you are aware of two prophetic words that were shared.
We wanted to make sure everyone has a chance to hear and pray into these key words for this new era.
Billy Graham's Mantle
During the year's leading up to Billy Graham's passing to be with the Lord in February, 2018, numerous prophetic leaders, from a wide scope of different circles all heard the same word from the Lord.
When Billy Graham passed away, his evangelistic gift would not be lost, but rather it would multiply.
What God had given him would be multiplied and given as a mantle to thousands of individuals, known and unknown, for the sake of winning the lost.
It is not about becoming famous, but becoming wonderfully fruitful for the kingdom.
John 12: 24, in the kingdom, a seed (life) sown produces many more after its kind.
The Third Wave of Intercession
This prophetic word came from our former house of prayer, where up to 40 meetings a week of dedicated prayer for revival and harvest was hosted for 12 years. In one these extended times of prayer, the Lord spoke and this word has been weighed and confirmed over the last year.
He is saying that there is a third wave of intercession coming to the Church.
In our generation, we have been blessed with two waves already:
1) The Wave of Prophetic Prayer -
This wave came in the 80s with the dynamic of the prophetic activating and empowering our prayer. Leaders such as Cindy Jacobs and Dutch Sheets were some of the key voices in this movement and it radically changed the nature of our intercession from one of just asking to interacting with the Spirit and responding to the voice of God.
2) The Wave of Intimacy -
This wave also empowered prayer in a new way as the Lord used the Toronto Blessing to draw intercession into a new place of intimacy with God. With this foundation, the House of Prayer movement brought intercession and worship into a new union and harp and bowl prayer enabled extended hours of refreshing intercession as we gazed on Jesus.
But now a third wave is beginning!
3) The Third Wave - Intercession for the Lost -
This wave will be as broad and transformational as the two previous waves, building on what has come before, but stepping into the revelation of the love of God for the lost around us. It will carry a new intensity, but not striving in the flesh, it will be filled with great earnestness but not become heavy in a soulish way, rather leading to unprecedented joy. The level of faith will be extraordinary.
There is a grace right now that is beginning to flow, a grace to be carried by the Spirit into the seeking and saving prayers of Jesus in a way this generation has not yet known.
Lean into prayer for the harvest to be a part of what God is beginning to release in this hour! Join in your church's prayer times with new faith that if God is releasing great grace to pray for the harvest, it's because He intends to answer these prayers!
