Prayer & Spiritual Warfare
Prayer
When the Holy Spirit Calls

Sometimes we never know why the Holy Spirit prompted us to pray. Other times, we find out as soon as we stop praying. That's what happened to me today. I had a sudden urge to pray so I answered the call spiritually. Little did I know 15 minutes later I would answer a call naturally that had ramifications for someone's spiritual eternity. I won’t recount the entire phone call here. Suffice it to say that a man, we’ll call him Ronny, wanted some help getting his book published. In between curse words that it wouldn’t be edifying to repeat, he told me of his wordly exploits, from leaving people bleeding on the side of the road to living through a train wreck because he was too drunk to die to getting kidnapped by Mexican drug lords during a marijuana run to being kicked out of prison by a frustrated warden.

I’ll admit, at first I wanted to hang up the phone as quickly as possible. I didn’t want to hear anymore about this sinful book proposal, nor was I willing to help someone glorify the devil. I’ll admit it. I interrupted him more than once to suggest I needed to go, but he kept recounting his ‘bad guy’ stories with noted pride. He was most proud of the fact that he was still alive.

Thank God, the Holy Ghost got my attention.

Should People ‘Copyright’ Prophetic Words?

Jeremiah didn’t copyright his prophetic words. Nor did Isaiah, Samuel, Moses, David, Nathan, Zechariah, Elijah, Elisha, Amos, Michah, Zephaniah… OK, you get the picture. So when I see people in the Body of Christ copyrighting what “thus saith the Lord,” it disturbs my spirit. 

Think about it for a minute. According to Miriam-Webster, a copyright is “the exclusive legal right to reproduce, publish, sell or distribute the matter and form of something.” When someone violates your copyright, you have a right to file a lawsuit against them for financial damages. Doesn’t it seem silly to copyright a prophetic word, then? Doesn’t it seem outrageous to put God’s word in a legally protected box and be prepared to sue someone who shares it?

A true prophetic word from God should be freely distributable. In fact, if God is really speaking—and if He told you to release the word rather than just praying about it—then why on earth would anyone want to restrict the mass reproduction and distribution of God’s genuine prophetic utterance?

Judge Moore Defends Moment of Silence

Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore and attorneys with the Foundation for Moral Law argued in an amicus curiae brief filed yesterday that a Texas law requiring “the observance of one minute of silence at each school” for students to “reflect, pray, meditate, or engage in any other silent activity” does not violate the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

In Croft v. Governor of Texas, two parents in Texas sued the Governor on behalf of their children claiming that merely giving students the option to “pray” is a violation of the Establishment Clause.

Judge Roy Moore said:

I woke up from a dream on September 16, 2019 and heard these words: “This is the Day of Intercession.” I could…

For the last year or so, the Lord has been speaking to me about the fear of the Lord being restored to the Church…

God wants to open up the well of our spirits so that we can experience the fullness of His Spirit from the inside out. This begins with us connecting with Him, discovering intimacy, and allowing His Spirit to make intercession through us.

In the beginning of July, I sent out a word that I was very concerned that the situation in Iran could potentially escalate into a third world war – or at least a Middle Eastern regional war – which we and our allies could get pulled into.

In My Bright Abyss, poet and Yale professor Christian Wiman wrote, “There is nothing more difficult to outgrow than anxieties that have become useful to us.”

I’m a psychotherapist who used to be a Baptist pastor in the Southeast. For much of my life I have believed that anxiety is not only an unfortunate byproduct of pursuing excellence in my life and work (sort of like off-gassing for the human soul) but a deeply integral component of that which secures my success. Somehow I picked up along the way that my anxiety was a reliable way of measuring how hard I was working and how seriously I was taking the next assignment, job, prayer, paper, relationship or client.

Prophetic Insight

Another month, another conspiracy theorist claiming the end of the world is coming.

You may be rolling your eyes right now, but the reality is scads of unsuspecting people are buying into this bombastic banter. We need to pray for more discernment in the body of Christ. When the world witnesses this goofy manifestation of the “prophetic,” it makes genuine prophets seem illegitimate.

Let’s debunk these false prophetic utterances before we pray:
