Intercessors are the ones who does the work of the Kingdom from the place of
Revelation 4–5 describes the worship order around God’s throne. Those nearest the throne magnify Him and agree with His purposes in day and night worship and intercession.
Jesus exhorted us to pray that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Mt. 6:10 – Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.). One aspect of God’s kingdom being expressed on earth as it is in heaven involves worship and intersession. God’s desire to be worshiped on earth as He is in heaven has not changed.
The Holy Spirit is establishing the most powerful prayer and worship movement in history.
The Scriptures give indications of the significance of prayer in the end times
Luke 18:7 And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them?
Revelation 5:8 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.;
Isaiah 52:8 Your watchmen shall lift up their voices,
With their voices they shall sing together;
For they shall see eye to eye…
Isaiah 62:6–7 I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem;
They shall never hold their peace day or night.
You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent,;
The Lord has appointed watchmen [intercessors]; all day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; and give Him no rest until God is established in every area of our lives.
Of the many watchman’s described in the Scriptures, the most we can associate ourselves to are the ten virgins, as we stay dedicated to the call of the Bridegroom, and wait in anticipation.
Isaiah is referring to New Testament believers (who will be on the earth when Jesus returns). This prophecy speaks specifically of prayer ministries being established by the Lord that will continue until He returns (Jeremiah 3:17; Matthew 5:35).
Jesus emphasized prayer, or “watching,” more than any other specific activity when speaking about the generation in which He would return. Jesus wants us to be the priest between the porch and the alter - asking for forgiveness, repentance and waiting in expectation for His coming.
Matthew 24:42–43 / 25:13 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into;
Mark 13:34-35; Luke 21:36; Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.
Rev. 3:3; 16:15 Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.
Paul embraced night-and-day prayer in various seasons and called elders to this ministry (1 Thessalonians 3:10; 1 Timothy 5:5; 2 Timothy 1:3).
They continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship and in prayers. (Acts 2:42)
We will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word. (Acts 6:4)
