“The Incense and Power of Intercessory Prayer” by Bobby Connor

Jesus said, "I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life. NO ONE comes to the Father but by Me!" (John 14:6)

I have been profoundly challenged and greatly blessed by the ministry of the Gentle Giant, Bobby Connor.  His website linked to his name and in the right panel as well, will provide a rich array of teaching and ministry tools that will propel each of you into the fulfillment of YOUR Divine Destiny, and personal ‘assignment’ from the Throne of Heaven!  May you all take this precious message to heart, and act (NOW) on its urgent call for transforming intercession, in the LORD Jesus Christ’s Name, AMEN!  

Bobby Conner: The Incense and Power of Intercessory Prayer

The Spirit of God is releasing an anointing for intercession on an extremely high level (John 15:16). Saints are being mobilized to pray across the nations. Great swells of prayer meetings are beginning to take place in many diverse places. Some of these prayer meetings are being led by outstanding young radicals who have one goal in mind: Establishing God’s Kingdom on earth. Likewise a great release of intercession is arising from delightful senior citizens.

Understand: Prayer’s Prominence Before God’s Throne

Because of this newly released anointing to pray, it is vital for us to recognize what the Word of God teaches concerning prayer, specifically what happens to our prayers in the heavenly realm.

Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. Revelation 5:8

Our prayers hold a place of great prominence before the Lamb upon His throne in Heaven. Bowls are filled with our treasured prayers – the prayers are so beautiful they emit a fragrant incense and are so valuable and precious, they are kept in golden bowls. The aroma of these faith-filled prayers continuously rises before the Lamb and casts a magnificent scent upon His throne, becoming an essential part of the worship and adoration before the face of God.

Believe: Fervent Prayer Avails Much

What our prayers accomplish is absolutely astonishing: Our prayers actually move the hand of Almighty God (Jeremiah 33:3). In fact, many of the defining moments in history were decided as the result of prayer. We must recognize that, as the Body of Christ, we are at an historical moment, and a crossroads and time of transition. We must spend time filling those golden bowls with our intercessory prayers, believing they are availing much.

The Scripture contains countless precious promises of God’s loving-kindness and willingness to answer our prayers. Indeed, the Word of God promises: “the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16). The Lord Jesus Christ assures us repeatedly in the Gospels that our prayers, truly “whatsoever things” we desire, are heard and answered.

“Therefore I say unto you, whatever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you will receive them, and you shall have them” (Mark 11:24). Our prayers actually accomplish more than we can imagine, “exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20).

Doubt: The Lies of Satan

The foe of our soul, satan himself, is positively relentless in his strategic attacks to hinder our prayers. He seeks to stop us from praying altogether. What is his chief tactic? Slandering God. Accusing our faithful King by speaking blasphemous lies, such as, “God will not hear your prayers.”

Every time the devil speaks, without exception, he speaks a lie (John 8:44). A lie is the direct opposite of the truth so be encouraged: when you hear the enemy telling you that you are not significant enough to God to be heard, that you don’t know how to pray, that you have “disqualified” yourself from the mercy and grace of God by past sins, or that God is unconcerned, faithless, unloving or absent – your prayers are being heard in the courts of Heaven!

You are by no means disqualified or ignored; on the contrary, your prayers are mighty and effectual as you pray in faith, standing on the precious promises of the Word of God. Every time you pray, without exception, you activate the host of Heaven. When you hear the voice of doubt and unbelief, recognize the voice of the accuser and rebuke, renounce and remove him from your midst.

"The Fervent Prayers of A Righteous One Avails Much!"

“The Fervent Prayers of A Righteous One Avails Much!”

Welcome: Mighty Angelic Help

Be confident of this fact: Your prayers are heard in Heaven. Not only are they heard and treasured in golden bowls, but also they are watched over and executed by powerful, holy angels. We read in Revelation 8:3-5:

“And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

“And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.

“And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.”

Never forget: Your prayers always result in action. Prayer always, without fail, engages Heaven:

“For He says, In the time of favor (of an assured welcome) I have listened to and heeded your call, and I have helped you on the day of deliverance (the day of salvation). Behold, now is truly the time for a gracious welcome and acceptance [of you from God]; behold, now is the day of salvation!” 2 Corinthians 6:2

Expect: Prayer Produces Results

When your prayers are spoken on earth, they ascend before the throne of God and Heaven immediately begins to respond. At times the earth is shaken. When the disciples prayed, for example, they experienced a literal earthquake, “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spoke the word of God with boldness” (Acts 4:31).

The prayer spoken in Acts 12 on Peter’s behalf was prayed to address a life-or-death situation. James had been beheaded and the same fate was facing the apostle Peter. Scripture states, however, that “Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him…” (Acts 12:5-11). Truly, nothing is too hard for God. Our prayers release the hand of God to move on our behalf. Indeed, prayer is a powerful force.

Our prayers release not only a response on earth, but prayer also releases an awesome response from Heaven. In Revelation 8:3-5, we find lightnings, which speak of God’s power, being released as our prayers are released from Heaven back to earth. Thunderings and noises speak of the Word of God being released from Heaven. When God’s voice speaks we see the entire world shaken (Exodus 19:10-20).

"And Rising Early, He Went to the Mountain to Pray..."

“And Rising Early, He Went to the Mountain to Pray…”

Have Faith: Uncover Secrets

It is the prayer of faith that moves the hand of God. Yes, God can do anything (Job 42:2). Genesis 18:14 also poses the question, “Is any thing too hard for the LORD?” The answer is No! As we enter into the realm of the prayer of faith, we discover that absolutely nothing is impossible with God. He has promised us that if we ask, He will answer. We read this powerful promise in Jeremiah 33:3: “Call unto Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.”

The word “mighty” in this Scripture literally means “fenced in,” with the connotation of being “cut off ” or “inaccessible.” Jeremiah 33:3 then assures us that prayer makes visible the things that have been concealed. In this we understand that God has many things to reveal to us and through us, but we will never receive them unless we call to Him in believing prayer. God is able to reveal that which has formerly been hidden. He desires to reveal mysteries to His friends – because He is committed to delivering and preserving His people.

In Deuteronomy 29:29: “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” God has some secrets that He desires to release – but these are obtainable only through prayer!

Dearly Beloved, never give up! Keep on crying out to God! The answer is on the way. He is able to do far above anything we could ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20-21).

Mark 10:13-16 "...Of Such IS the Kingdom of GOD."

  1. My favorite quote on prayer was by the Puritan John Owen in about 1690.
    “What a man is…alone…on bended knee…in secret prayer before Almighty God is what a man is…and no more.”

    I was looking over your resources to see if you took an aggressive and meaningful stand against abortion. I didnt see any. I invite you to watch the Pro Life Documentary I recently produced. It is on my website conceivedinrape.com
    Blessings to you. Am enjoying your Blog

  2. I forgot. I am really interested in finding out more about how the Lord is working through the intercessions of Senior Citizens. They ARE delightful! I believe if we could energize a movement of Senior Citizens in prayer it would be a mighty army. Precisely the kind of army God delights in. So many who have spent a lifetime in service and intercessions to the Lord are languishing away in nursing homes. Im all ears to hear what you have going on or any resources or contacts etc. papakevin11@gmail.com

    • Hello brother Kevin~

      To respond to your earlier comment first- my position on social issues including and especially abortion would be revealed on my Facebook page which you can find at: https://www.facebook.com/santos.garcia.888. It would necessitate viewing many entries over time, since I ‘channel’ the current national and world news events through the grid of the Cross of Christ and His Holy Scripture (primarily KJB1611… although I have studied in-depth 12 Bible versions; 8 English & 4 Spanish). Please see the ‘About Zionsgate’ page linked on the header or the right panel. My posts cover the gamut of many other people’s insights, as well as many original essays that I have compiled and posted. Please do ‘download’ the free PDF of my first book “Thy Kingdom Come- Here and Now!” which is available on the Open Heaven website referenced in this post: https://zionsgate.wordpress.com/2011/08/10/thy-kingdom-come-here-and-now/.

      I personally am rapidly approaching 65 years of age; my wife and I are retired- with two adult children (son & daughter), and six grandkids- 4 boys and two girls ranging from 5 to 13 years old. I consider and know well that my primary ministry is that of ‘Intercession’. I firmly believe that your leading re. a Holy Army of Silver Saints in fervent intercession is critical to America’s survival, especially since the LORD still has a Divine Destiny for our misguided and frankly depraved nation. Please see these two posts: https://zionsgate.wordpress.com/2007/07/04/praying-for-the-healing-of-america/ and also: https://zionsgate.wordpress.com/2014/02/15/arthur-burts-word-greatest-move-of-god-the-earth-has-seen/

      The LORD will soon manifest His Presence in His true Body of Christ, and His Spirit will bring a level of profound conviction to our nation- in the Holy Fear of the LORD (see: https://zionsgate.wordpress.com/2011/11/20/the-holy-fear-of-the-lord-part-i/). The majority of the ministries linked on the right panel Blogroll have components of prayer ministry… although it will continue to need networking and coordination, that will frankly transcend the current ‘church’ structure. Please consider purchasing Wolfgang Simson ‘Starfish Vision & Manifesto’ (two separate books- one an overview, the other a massive endeavor with profound and challenging implication). My first review here: https://zionsgate.wordpress.com/2013/03/01/starfish-vision-part-i/

      We can continue to dialogue as the LORD leads…

      Kingdom Blessings to you and your loved ones during this Holy Christmas Season, in HIM… ~Santos
