There are key spiritual practices that are necessary for a human vessel to be fit for intercessory ministry. As an intercessor, the first thing to focus your attention on is how to cultivate intimacy with the Lord because it is His will you want to birth and His purpose you want to be released. So, it is all about God’s counsel.

You must understand that what God wants to do on the earth is not in your mind; it is not what you have seen or heard before.

Sometimes, some of the pastors in our church wonder where I get the mandates I give them for their pastoral postings. All are simply from the womb of the Holy Spirit. What God wants to do on the earth is not in your mind, and that is why intimacy is very crucial. You cannot be effective in your intercessory ministry if you neglect the place of intimacy with God. Jesus went to a solitary place to pray and strengthen His intimacy with the Father many times.

Your attention should be focused on how to get intimate with God. You must cultivate a personal prayer time and a depth of intercession and travail in the Spirit to birth the deep things of God. These are things that the eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has entered the heart of man but God has marked out for those that love Him (1 Cor. 2:9). You cannot just get into that realm by attending general church prayer meetings; they come from intimacy with the Lord.

PRAYER: Dear Lord, draw me into the place of intimacy with You in Jesus’ name. Amen!
