From Priestly to Kingly Intercession – Part 1
I heard the Lord speak to me perhaps twenty years ago and He said, “You will fully shift the government of America when the praying Church shifts from priestly intercession, only, to kingly intercession, as well.” So, I studied what that would mean. Priestly intercession is when we make petitions, and our prayers ascend vertically toward the Lord. It is representing the needs of man to God. For example, “Father, would You…” Our worship is also priestly. It ascends like incense before the Lord. However, we are also kings. We are part of a royal priesthood.
“And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” (Revelation 1:6; KJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Worship the King of Kings. Let your worship rise as incense before Him.
Take a position for priestly intercession. Kneel or bow as a humble servant of the Most High God.
Intercede for the needs of those you know and love. Pray for the President, etc., as the Lord leads. Represent men to God in your prayers. See your prayers rise up before the throne of grace.
Remember this type of intercession as we shift to kingly intercession tomorrow.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, I worship You! May my worship be as sweet incense rising up to You. (Worship Him for a bit.) As I now bow before You, I humble myself and ask that You would hear the petitions I bring to You as an intercessor. I bring the needs of my family and friends. I pray for my President and others You may lay on my heart today. Each is in need of grace, Lord, for (name the many needs of these you are interceding for.) Thank you for showing me clearly the difference between priestly and kingly intercession. Help me remember today’s prayer time, so I can know how to operate in both forms of intercession, Jesus, even as You do. Amen.
I will intercede at times as a priest before my God and at other times as a king decreeing His Will in the earth!
