"Weep in Intercession" Now Think On This by Steve Martin

Weep in Intercession

“Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.” Romans 12:15, Complete Jewish Bible

In the last two days, when I sat down in my prayer chair for my early morning time with the Lord, this sense of weeping came over me. It began as a swelling up in my chest, and then it came forth through my eyes, as the Holy Spirit moved upon me.

I wasn’t sure why He was sharing this experience with me, so I prayed in tongues and let Him use my intercession for His purposes. Most often we can choose to freely give of ourselves as His channel of love and act out of obedience for His plans. The knowing may not be made fully aware, but the doing certainly should.

Maybe this was for our friends in Israel, as He watches over His returning people coming from all the nations where they had been dispersed during the centuries. He clearly sees them, making provision from His holy throne from which He broadcasts His love, through those who have accepted His call to support and provide the means of doing so, both in the natural and the spiritual.

Maybe this intercession weeping was for the one on the dark, secluded street last night, left out of life, clinging to any hope available. May they find the joy that is in You, Jesus, the Savior of the world. You died so that all could live who seek and find You.

It could have been for the nation of Hong Kong, as the people have been crying out publicly for weeks, desiring for the freedom in their country that He alone can truly bring. He may have wanted me to join with them in their longing for that truth.

We may not understand why He leads us in this form of intercession, but we must be open vessels for those times He leads us in the manner.

In Isaiah 30:18-22, the prophet spoke forth this to the people, “Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; how blessed are all those who long for Him.

 O people in Zion, inhabitant in Jerusalem, you will weep no longer. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you. Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, He, your Teacher will no longer hide Himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher.

Your ears will hear a word behind you, " This is the way, walk in it," whenever you turn to the right or to the left. And you will defile your graven images overlaid with silver, and your molten images plated with gold. You will scatter them as an impure thing, and say to them, " Be gone!" (NASU)

There is an eternal longing in the Father’s heart, expressed through His Only Begotten Son Jesus (Yeshua) and His Holy Spirit, the Comforter sent to earth to bring forth His purposes in love.

We are called to be intercessors – to pray, to fast, to weep for the answers and solutions needing to come, which will bring healing, restoration, life fulfillment, and redemption offered only through His shed blood on the cross. As His Spirit directs us, we must follow. He is our only hope.

We read of the time Yeshua wept when his friend Lazarus had died and was buried. His emotions as He walked among us those 33 years displayed the Father’s loving heart.

“When Jesus saw her sobbing and the Jews with her sobbing, a deep anger welled up within him.  He said, "Where did you put him?" "Master, come and see," they said. Now Jesus wept. The Jews said, "Look how deeply he loved him." John 11:33-36 (THE MESSAGE)

There will be plenty of opportunities we will have to join with the Father in interceding for our families, our friends, the nations around the planet. As we give ourselves to Him, He will lead us, direct our steps, and allow us to experience what is on His heart.

He knows what the end results will bring, that of victory and rejoicing. But the path we walk on to get there will take us through much tribulation and warfare. We must present ourselves as ones to share in this.

Now think on this and see what good things the Lord has in store for you and those around you.

A powerful we fight the battles we are in. Rachel Davis, Align

August 22, 2019  

Declarations as shared by my colleague, Rachel Davis

We bind political spirits and decree that they lose their ability to infiltrate the minds of God’s people and that discernment overtake their minds and God’s truth breaks through.

We speak death to religious mindsets and call to attention the darkness that is masking as light (in terms of justice, gun control, immigration) for they are pushing forth Satan’s agenda for America and not God’s.

We speak death to the mainstream media’s deceptive agenda and say their false narratives and plans are exposed for the socialist and communist plots that it is.

We decree protection over our President and release warring angels to accomplish this protection.  We decree that he will be re-elected and that God’s plans that he puts in place will grow and expand.  We say that America will have a great awakening to this move and repent.

We speak death to the LGBTQ agenda and decree that there are two genders and America’s children are protected from the evil plan to recreate the genders that God created.

We decree exposure of the Clinton’s and Obamas and say that there will be charges and convictions of treason.  We call forth into position the strong men and women who are not afraid to fight this fight,  We decree justice reigns in this nation.

We decree that our nation’s constitution will stay intact and that nothing can destroy it. We decree that the electoral college stays firm.

We clean out Congress of the Muslim and socialist agenda and decree that patriotism returns to our nation and government.

We declare protection over Trump supporters, conservatives and Christianity.  

We decree that God’s truth will invade this nation!

P.S. – Oh, and a Quick Note to our readers: To EXPLORE our more than 2,500 Christian Prophetic books, CDs, and gifts go to:


While in Branson, MO, praying with the amazing community at Morningside Church as they dedicated their new Prayer Mountain Chapel, the Lord gave me a vision. I believe this vision has everything to do with an assignment He is extending to prophets, intercessors and, well, everyone—on how to effectively pray for the United States of America. (Note: I love all nations, so I'm convinced that within this message is a strategy to pray for other nations too.)
Ask for the Lord's Translation
In the vision, I simply saw the hand of the Lord reaching out to prophets and intercessors, giving them rolled-up scrolls on behalf of their cities and states. Anytime we have supernatural experiences, visions or dreams, we cannot be content with simply indulging the supernatural imagery without contending for an explanation.
The high benchmark of the prophetic ministry is not, and I repeat, NOT how supernatural or spiritual our prophetic words, visions, dreams, and experiences sound. When we receive messages from Heaven they will always come in a slightly "coded" manner. There will be this veil around them, not because God is making things difficult for us, but rather He's inviting you and me into dynamic communication with Him as friends and intimates. He wants you and me to ask Him for the translation—and He is faithful to provide it!
The veil of mystery surrounding prophetic messages from Heaven cannot motivate us to immediately indulge our "push button" society, where we jump out and simply share the word as is, in its uninterpreted, strongly-symbolic or allegorical format. Certainly not. Instead, when we believe that we receive a prophetic message from Heaven, we need to first present it back to the Lord and ask Him for clarity on what it means.
What Were the Rolled-Up Scrolls?
When I asked the Lord what those scrolls were, He told me they were the scrolls for cities and states in the USA. What was written in these scrolls represented God's will and intended purposes for our cities and states; they carried what God wanted for the United States of America. (Photo via Larry Sparks)
Reactive Prayers: Cleaning up Messes Made by the Devil
We cannot pray reactively, we must pray responsively. Reactive prayers sound like we are constantly trying to clean up messes made by the devil. By nature, we are reacting to the very real and present darkness around us. I refuse to pretend away the darkness in our land in favor of a pie-in-the-sky, end-times scenario.
Isaiah 60 gives us a stunning parallel of what to expect in this hour: gross and deep darkness colliding with a people upon whom God arises and shines with superior glory. And that glory is not meant to be contained, but rather have a measurable impact on a society gripped by darkness. Jesus did say we are the salt of the earth and light of the world, which means our presence in the earth should transform things around us.
Responsive Prayers: Responding to What's Written in God's Scrolls
Responsive prayers are not born on Earth; they were birthed in Heaven. They are not motivated by what we "scroll" through on our news-feeds everyday, but rather, they are driven by what's written in God's scrolls for our cities, states and nations.
Can't You Talk Louder, God?
The ultimate question should not be what is the devil doing? The question is what is God saying? The truth is, we will pray prayers that are driven by one or the other. We can pray based on what the enemy is doing in our nation—with such prayers sounding frantic, hopeless and full of despair—OR, we can be very alert and in tune with the darkness, while praying superior prayers not driven by what darkness is doing, but are rather influenced by the word and purposes of the Lord.
How to Pray Responsively
Here are some very practical "next steps" on how to pray responsively to what the Lord is doing right now:
1. Refuse to allow darkness and the devil to influence your prayer life. Practically speaking, this means you watch the news but don't pray it. You track world events but don't pray the problems. You don't agree with the darkness. Be very aware of what's going on in the earth, but refuse to partner with the enemy's agenda.
2. Ask the Lord, "What do YOU SAY about my city, state and nation?" The news often tells us what the enemy is saying concerning our nations. This is why the scroll imagery, I think, is so important, especially considering the day and age we live in. We're constantly scrolling through news stories and headlines, being influenced by what we are reading. No doubt many prayers have been crafted based on what our eyes have come across while reading the most recent, horrific news headline. Let's shift things. Let's be very aware of what's going on in the earth, but perhaps more aware of what the Lord wants to do in our cities, states and nations.
3. Specifically ask the Lord for the scroll of your city and state. This is not some mystical thing; it's a matter of the Lord unveiling to you what He wants to do in the place where you live. More than what we see in the news, we want to see what's written in Heaven come to pass in the places where we live. (Photo via Unsplash)
4. Research the prophetic history of your city/state.Often, the unfinished work of the Lord can be discovered by acquainting ourselves with the prophetic history of our cities and states.
Recently, I was overwhelmed by the Lord's presence as He told me things like, "I remember Frank Bartleman. I remember William Seymour. I remember John Wimber. I remember Aimee Semple McPherson." This was all in respect to California, which many tend to write off as perhaps the darkest state in the USA. And yet, there are powerful, spiritual seeds still in the ground. The Lord remembers these seeds and I believe His work is yet unfinished in California. Likewise, it's unfinished in your city and state!
5. Practically ask: "How can I get involved in what God is doing?" Yes, we pray, but oftentimes in prayer, the Lord wants to share prophetic solutions and strategies that demand our engagement. He will tell us to do something so that His will can be released into the earth through you. Of course He is the sovereign God and can do things Himself, but He is looking for agents in the earth realm who He can commission and deploy into every sphere that's been influenced by darkness.
Let's receive what the Lord is handing out to us so we can effectively pray for our cities, states and nations! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Divine Strategies for These Times - END-TIME HANDMAIDENS CHARISMA NEWS

We are living in times of intensifying spiritual warfare. There has never been a time like this! But no matter how daunting the situation seems to be, our adversary is no match for the living God and His angel armies. It is our task and privilege to tune in to the heart of our Father and receive the download from the Holy Spirit of His divine strategies. We have to lay aside the hindrances that have been arrayed against us and pray through!
Prayer is most successful when it is shared with others. A corporate body in agreement—the ekklesia—can legislate the Word of God by His Holy Spirit and shift entire nations. Hearts gathered together to seek the face of the Lord will be used by Him.
God has called the End-Time Handmaidens and Servants to gather each year for our World Convention (an event for all ages), and this is the 41st time we are gathering! Every year it has been a time of "the bride making herself ready." The Lord calls each time to "come away, My beloved," as the Bridegroom of the Song of Solomon. And this year as we come apart with Him, we are expecting more than ever to receive the grace to arise and shine in His glorious light!
This bridal call reaches from the heart of the Bridegroom into the heart of the warrior-bride. She knows she is called to align herself with the heart of her King and press the battle to the gates of hell to deliver the captives from deception. His Glory will reveal His divine strategies for these times, and we will agree together in worship and intercession as the Holy Spirit leads through anointed preaching, teaching and prophetic exhortation. Of course that bridal company includes both men and women, even as we are all given the power to become sons of God as we believe on His name.
We feel that this year we are being called to gather to receive an outpouring of His Glory to equip us to effect change in the nations through persistent prayer. It's time for the outpouring! It's time for the harvest! He may send us there by physical travel, on our knees in intercession, or even by "Philip's Airlines" translation. That face-to-face meeting with Him causes us to lay aside everything that has kept us from the fullness of our destiny. You won't ever want to tell Him no again once He has held you in His divine glory embrace, for He will impart to you the vision of His heart for your place and purpose in His divine plan!
Our Father is looking for that bridal company of those who have surrendered their individuality to allow His Son to live His life through them, becoming one with His character through the fruit of His Holy Spirit, and letting Him "dress Himself" with your personality. Are you allowing Him to help you make yourself ready? Nothing of this earth carries the value of that relationship! Nothing compares with Him! Nothing should stand in your way to keep you from following after Him!
We hope that you will bring your individual anointing and join us to form the amazing corporate anointing that we experience each year at the World Convention. It is worthy to note that fasting increases your anointing when you are seeking the Lord for His purposes to be accomplished in your life. And when people who have fasted and received that increase in anointing gather together, the corporate anointing goes off the charts! The glory of the Lord's presence in worship is breathtaking, and the depth of the preaching of the Word of God is life-changing. Let's believe God together in prayer for each person whom He calls to take faith and willingly and joyfully obey His prompting and come to receive Divine Strategies for These Times!
As we gather July 1-5, 2019, at the Holiday Inn and Northwest Arkansas Convention Center in Springdale, Arkansas (originally known as Shiloh), we expect to:
  • Receive divine strategies for intercession.
  • Worship the Lord together in the beauty of His holiness.
  • Be transformed by God's presence as we allow His glory to permeate our spirit.
  • Enter into a new level of anointing.
  • Connect with God's purpose for our lives.
  • Restore our godly passion and spiritual balance.
  • Receive God's heart for the nations.
  • Become better equipped to be used by God to change the world.
  • Build eternal relationships in the body of Christ.

P.S. – Oh, and a Quick Note to our readers: To EXPLORE our more than 2,500 Christian Prophetic books, CDs, and gifts go to:

Holy Spirit has been quickening my heart for Kansas City, again, these past few days. I released this prophetic word back in 2018, but sense a "reigniting" beginning to spark a new flame across the Midwest.
Something is brewing in this area of the USA. A new breed of prophetic voices will arise and be more prevalent in the days ahead to spearhead what God is doing in the earth. There's a stirring in the spirit. Watch and see...a time of "reigniting" a new flame of passion and revival is near!
During a time of prayer in 2017, I had a vision of revival breaking out in the midwest portion of the United States. In this vision, I began to see pockets of glory moving across the Midwest with fresh baptisms of Holy Ghost fire igniting the Bride of Christ. As I watched this move of the Spirit fan into flame over towns, cities and regions across the land, a new wave of spiritual awakening was being birthed from a consecrated generation of sons and daughters of God.
As I prayed into this vision I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, "A Kansas City generation is arising known as the 'Mind of Christ Generation' (1 Cor. 2:16). This generation is mandated to transform society and impact the world. They are wearing the earmarks of a remnant who seeks to save the lost and gather in an end-time harvest of souls (Lk. 19:20). They are surrounded with the splendor and glory of the Lord while walking in unprecedented levels of wisdom and revelation. Their surrendered and uncompromising lifestyle of friendship and intimacy with Jesus is the fragrance emulating from their souls (Jhn. 15:15).
"The radiance of God's holiness endues these ones so tangibly, that places of worship will be transformed into bodies of Believers, wearing the mind of Christ instead of conforming to the spirit of the world (1 Pet. 1:15, 1 Cor. 2:12). A Holy Spirit uprising is in the works for the Midwest and across Kansas City! God is about to display His nature radically upon the earth through an remnant of Believers in Kansas City." (Photo via Pexels)
"'For who has understood (can speak) the mind (thought/will) of the Lord as to instruct (unite or put together) Him?' But we have the mind of Christ." (1 Cor. 2:16 emphasis mine)
A New Sound is Trumpeting
A fresh outpouring of prayer and sound is being birthed from the Kansas City region. People and people groups will travel across the earth to see and experience the glory of the Lord in their midst!
As songs of deliverance, declarations, and praise and worship go out from the Midwest and across Kansas City, spiritual atmospheres will shift and align with what the Spirit of the Lord is saying. A wave of compassion to heal the sick, set the captives free, and shepherd a wayward and wandering flock will call many back to their first love through the sounds trumpeting from this part of our nation.
Can't You Talk Louder, God?
The Midwest and Kansas City are on the heart of the Father! A new move of the Spirit is erupting to fan the flames of revival. A generation of burning ones are arising to transform our culture for Jesus. A new breed of apostles and prophets with fresh, revelatory insight and acute clarity and vision are being called into position at this hour. Sounds of worship from unknown places will unlock gateways into cities and regions with governmental and national influence. The eye of the Lord is on Kansas City. Watch and see what He will do!
I prophesy that a Kansas City "Mind of Christ generation" is forerunning a no-compromise movement throughout the streets of our nation. A ripple effect of spreading the love of Jesus and the heart of the Father is sweeping across the land. A new breed of consecrated vessels are arising from the secret place to spark an awakening with unprecedented glory. All the earth will know the sound of awakening through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. The mind and will of the Lord will be revealed to bring unity into the land. A move of awe and wonder through the person of Jesus Christ is set to gather in a harvest of souls!
Arise, Kansas City!
A few days ago while I was in prayer, I heard the words "Kansas City" boom through my spirit once again. The Lord was highlighting the Midwest and the region of Kansas City as places of divine providence. When I heard the Father speaking to me again about Kansas City, this prophetic utterance came forth:
I hear the Lord saying, "Kansas City! Kansas City! Watch and see what I will do. I am about to move in Kansas City. On the streets. In the regions. And throughout the pews. I am coming with the fire of My love to awaken Kansas City. There's a sound beginning to erupt from Kansas City! A new sound. A transformational sound. A sound of life with the breath of My Spirit upon it. Watch, for out of Kansas City will arise the shift needed to lift My Bride from out of her sleep and slumber.
"The days are coming," says the Spirit of the Lord, "where hearts will burn with the fire of My love in the pews of Kansas City. I am calling the intercessors to come forth to pray for the prodigals of Kansas City. For out of Kansas City the prodigals will arise as firebrands to ignite a lost and wayward generation. Those who come home to their rightful place will experience a radical transformation of My love and power.(Photo via Pixabay)
"I am giving new keys to the gatekeepers of Kansas City. I am giving new keys to unlock the highways and byways of Kansas City for the restoration of a nation. Political figures will arise from Kansas City with the power and anointing to build and restore what's been lost and forsaken. The bowls of intercession are tipping over in the streets of Kansas City. A sound is arising. A move is awakening. A roar is building in the hearts of Kansas City. Watch as Kansas City breaks out in a new and unprecedented way! The news will hear of it and the people will report it." The Spirit of the Lord says, "No more delay."
"And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, 'Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.'" (Rev. 14:15)
"Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame." (Song of Solomon 8:6) (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
