Prophetic Prayer Releases Kingdom Promises

Mark Virkler's picture

Prophetic prayer begins by hearing God’s voice in your heart. For me, this comes as flowing words which just appear. For example, as I was wondering how to pray for a situation in which there was animosity, the following phrase appeared effortlessly within me as a spontaneous, flowing thought:

“My peace which surpasses all understanding shall fill their hearts and their minds, their sleep, their dreams, their bedroom, their home and their office.”

It was clear to me that I was to pray and speak this prophetic reality into the situation. This was the way God was moving in that situation. The phrase came to me day and night over three weeks, and each time it came, I declared in faith that this was God’s will, purpose and promise concerning this situation. This is prophetic prayer. In each case the timing of the fulfillment comes from the Lord. In this case, after three weeks I received a wonderful letter of peace! Prayer answered! Thank You Lord!

God speaks concerning prophetic prayer

"For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. For you will go out with joy And be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands." (Isaiah 55:10-12)

What does “My word” mean?

So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing…

The Hebrew word translated "word" in this verse is dabar, and its literal meaning is speech or speaking.

The emphasis of this verse is that God is speaking His thoughts to us. The verse before says, "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts." (Isaiah 55:9)

So rather than figuring out how to pray for a situation, I ask God what His thoughts and will are for the situation. A phrase or a picture lights upon my mind, meaning I have just received “God’s thoughts” or the “mind of Christ.” I have just received the prophetic way to pray for the situation.

So now I prophesy this word by speaking it in faith, and in my mind’s eye seeing it happen (i.e. a vision). I continue speaking and seeing as long as the phrase is resonating within me.

Making it bear and sprout – time is involved

"For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;"

OK, this idea is that a bit of time is involved in generating the miracle. Rain comes. It waters. Things sprout. Bread is eaten. Well, that normally takes a few months to occur. So I will need to be patient, knowing the prophetic word is working, producing the expected harvest.

The promised results are - “It will not return to Me empty”

Wow! Cool. This is a wonderful promise which I can rest in!

It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

I speak forth the word God has spoken within, declaring it is done, knowing it is God’s conception which is now in the process of being birthed.

I rejoice that the victory is won!

"For you will go out with joy And be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands." (Isaiah 55:11,12)

No more begging that God will do it. No more fear that it will not be birthed. No more grumbling or complaining as I wait for the harvest. Just a simple declaration, spoken into the atmosphere that, “This is SO.” The work is accomplished. God’s Spirit is moving, accomplishing His spoken word. So I celebrate.

Now my emotions are in line with my confession. I have Kingdom thoughts, Kingdom pictures, Kingdom confession and Kingdom emotions. I am in agreement. The thoughts of my mind, the pictures and emotions of my heart, and the words of my mouth all align. Now I am a vessel through whom the miracle-working power of God can flow. Now I am releasing Heaven on earth. What a wonderful and joyful calling. Thank You, Lord!

From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength (Psalm 8:2)

  • 'OUT OF THE MOUTH OF BABES AND NURSING INFANTS YOU HAVE PERFECTED PRAISE'" (Matt. 21:16 NKJV).
  • Established strength is as we perfect praise that God has already performed the miracle!

The promised result“The enemy and the revengeful cease” (Ps. 8:2).

Application exercise

Lord, what do You want me to prophetically intercede for? What is Your spoken word concerning the situation?

Tune to flow, see what bubbles up, and speak it forth until the miracle is accomplished.

Counseled by God

Act Now: 

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
