Mapping, research, information strategies – Spirit-guided research into the supernatural underpinnings of reality to help produce more informed, effective intercession and outreach.
We are told to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength; as we engage with God, He invites us into partnership with Him. “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of kings to search it out.” The Bible informs us we are to be kings and priests unto our God. He invites us to engage with Him, to go deeper in seeking His wisdom so that our prayers are in line with His heart and His will in situations and for people. We know that when we pray according to His will, He hears us and He assures us that when He hears us, we have the requests that we have asked of Him. Numbers 13 sees God instructing Moses to send men to scout out the country of Canaan that He was about to give them. The New Testament sees Paul surveying the land of the Ephesians and using what he saw as the foundation of his apologetic. George Otis Jr. commented on the importance of informed intercession, “Specificity fuels fervency and fervency yields results.” His thought came from James 5:16b, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” As we pray specifically, we can pray with passion. Prayers ignited with passion move God’s heart. Compare the difference in effect of a shotgun to a lazer—the increase in focus dramatically increases the power released. Understanding why darkness lingers where it does throughout the world, and in particular in the area of the focus of our prayers, helps us to better address those hindrances and see breakthroughs.
