Power Of Anointed Prayer
"The Lord has called Me from the womb; from the
bowels of My mother has He made mention of My
Name. And He has made My mouth like a sharp
sword; in the shadow of His hand has He hid Me,
and made Me a polished shaft; in His quiver has
He hid Me; and said to Me, "You are My servant,
O Israel, in whom I will be glorified." Isa 49:1b-3.
This verse of Scripture transcends Israel and prophetically
refers to our Lord Jesus Christ. However, it has been quickened
to many as being a personal word of the Lord to them.
One may wonder how this very powerful word could possibly
apply to the seemingly insignificant persons whom we are;
but we are at the very heart of God's creation, and are involved
in all that He intends to do concerning the earth.
We are birthed out from the Lord into an earthly realm, and
then we are called to return back into His presence.
"To him who overcomes will I grant to sit with Me in
Throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My
Father in His Throne." Rev 3:21.
The realms of God may be portrayed in circles, with God on
His Throne in the center, with concentric outward circles
which lead to realms of diminishing closeness, until there
is the periphery of outer darkness.
The sun, the moon, the rotation of the earth on its axis;
all these exhibit God's design of circular flow. Ezekiel's
free flowing wheels portray the moving power of the Spirit
of God, able to move instantly to and fro in any given direction.
Even in the cycles of nature, the rain falls from the sky,
touches the earth, and then in another form, evaporates back
up into the atmosphere, in a continuous circular pattern.
Consider the power and moving force that will overcome the
kingdoms of the power of darkness, which are over the earth.
It is anointed prayer; prayer that is birthed in the heart
of God, carried into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, and then
voiced back up to God, in this "full circle activity."
The Lord's heart desire is to have fellowship and union with
those who freely choose to choose Him. He desires our will
to be aligned with His, and He waits to hear from us before
He releases His power.
This full union of thought and will was perfectly displayed
in Jesus; and we are to be conformed to His image. Thus, it
is the anointed Throne reaching prayers - our personal entrance
beyond the veil into His Presence, that carries the substance
of the moving power of God.
When this close union of heart, mind, and will is formed
between God and the one who in prayer gives expression to
this union, the circle of two becoming one is completed, and
the Lord moves forth and acts in power as the central force,
which is revealed in Ezekiel's wheels.
If only we realized more fully that we are to become the
"wheel within the wheel."
"Whithersoever the Spirit was to go, they went, thither
was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up
over against them: for the spirit of the living creature
was in the wheels.”
"When those went, these went; and when those stood,
stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the
wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of
the living creature was in the wheels." Ezek 1:20-21.
Let this understanding be applied to the Scriptures in which
He has made my mouth like a sharp sword, and, you are My servant
in whom I will be glorified.
God has said that every knee shall bow and confess that our
Lord is the Lord of all lords. As we increasingly enter beyond
the veil into His presence, we become one with Him in thought
and will. In this union, as we voice His intended will in
word and prayer, His mighty hand will move across the earth.
By sovereign power, He will subdue kings and nations and they
will indeed bow before Him.
Therefore, we must crucify all our own ways and press into
the Lord, that He might reign in us. Only then will the earth
come under the full Lordship of Jesus Christ.
