The government of the earth takes place in the prayer rooms. And we're not governing with politics but with prayer. God is looking for unbiased governmental intercessors who will stand in their regions and rule and reign with Christ. I heard the Lord say:
"I am looking for governmental intercessors in this region that will rise up in My Spirit and legislate the territory with My Word. I am seeking those who understand how the courts of heaven operate and will explore what the enemy has said and is saying over your city. I am looking for prayer warriors who understand how to tap into My plans and co-labor with My Spirit to bring My kingdom down. I am looking."
Again, God is looking for governmental intercessors. You might be asking, "What is a governmental intercessor?" There are governmental intercessors, and there are political intercessors. Political intercessors have the bias of a party and pray with prejudice. Governmental intercessors have the agenda of heaven and pray God's will to be done.
Webster's defines govern as "to direct and control; to regulate by authority; to influence; to direct; to restrain; to steer or to regulate the course of; to exercise authority to maintain the superiority." To exercise authority is to govern. The simplest way to explain governmental intercession is praying with Christ's authority into earthy governments. A governmental intercessor prays with authority into governments, whether church governments, local, state, national or international governments.
Governments are organizations through which politicians exercise authority and distribute power. There is no higher government than the government of God. Governing intercessors have delegated authority in Christ to decree God's will to be done and His kingdom to come on earth—and in governments.
