Press Forward In Prayer
The type of prayer, I love, is that of a bulldozer or earth mover. I begin to pray in tongues with my spiritual eyes, and face, set like flint toward the future.
As I press in, The Lord will give glimpses, words, pieces of a puzzle to pray out. I see those prayers and those declarations as bulldozers and earth movers, clearing the way before us, The Church, a particular minister or whatever The Spirit is hitting on.
The way is cleared, as we pray in The Spirit, even as we don't know how to pray as we ought. The Holy Spirit joins in our labor, of prayer, and causes all things to work together, and come together, for us in our future and the future of those we intercede for.
Even if not one word in English is spoken, praying in tongues with our spirits pressing forward, causes Gods will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
God Himself, through His Holy Spirit speaks forth His Plans and Purposes into The Earth. There is a level of prayer that every Church and extension of The Church needs in these last days.
There is an anointing that some carry to press their way into some things, to declare some things. Some carry a higher level of Authority and The Anointing of The Prophet. God has given them as gifts to The Body of Christ for the equipping of the saints, so they may do the work of The Ministry even in dark places and as the world turns dark.
The Prophet in this type of ministry may come along the other Ministry Gifts to aid them in Prayer.
Their ministry needs to be that of service to The Body. The greater heart they have for the people and The Church, the greater their anointing and authority will be.
We must have both The Power of God and The Manifold Wisdom of God being demonstrated though us.
So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.
And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God’s will.
We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
