Conspiring (Co-Inspiring) With God Through Prayer and Prophecy

A lot of people have conspiracy theories, but did you know that there is a real dimension of co-inspiring, or conspiring, with God? It is an invitation into God’s strategic plan. Conspiring is a form of partnering with God. This realm is best expressed in prophecy and prayer — and combined together in prophetic intercession.

What exactly does this mean? The word conspire means “to breathe together.” According to Genesis 2:7, when God created man from the dust of the earth, He “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being” (NIV).

This Hebrew word that we translate “breathed” can mean breathing violently, such as when the violent rushing wind filled the Upper Room on the day of Pentecost. New covenant believers conspire with God so His glory will be seen, felt and known in the earth. These prophetic intercessory warriors are conspiring and breathing together, allowing God to breathe violently into situations, through prophecy and prayer, in order to bring forth life.

Conspiring: An Invitation to Strategic Planning

Some years ago, I was in Germany in the middle of the night and took a train ride from Heidelberg to Rosenheim, which is in the southern part of Germany known as Bavaria. It was a six-hour train ride through the night. I attempted to rest on this bumpety train but kept hearing the gentle, consistent, persistent voice of the Holy Spirit speaking to me. It was as if we were breathing the same words together over and over. The same phrase rumbled over and over within me, in my mind and in my heart, as the train made its way across Germany.

Where are My Daniels? Where are My Esthers? Where are My Deborahs? And where are My Josephs?” I heard it over and over again. “Where are My Daniels? Where are My Esthers? Where are My Deborahs? Where are My Josephs?” I knew God was talking to me as an individual believer and as a prayer warrior, but I also felt He was imparting a burden to me to raise up a band of people who would volunteer themselves for the task of being watchers on the wall of prayer. It was as if the Holy Spirit and I were co-inspiring, breathing together, for the purpose of strategically bringing life into something that was in the heart of God. “Where are My Daniels, Esthers, Deborahs and Josephs?”

Are you one of them? Have you been positioned for such a time as this, as stated in Esther 4:14? Have you been brought forth for this hour? Will you be one of the answers to this persistent plea?

God’s Velvet Warriors

Many years ago I saw a vision of the “Velvet Warriors” moving forward in a time of great need. It was the army of the Lord, but they were coming so much slower than I would’ve anticipated. When I saw them come to the top of the hill, I could see why they were coming forth so slowly: they were marching on their knees.

Then the Spirit described these humble kneeling believers to me as His “Velvet Warriors.” This indicated they were a part of an arising generation that knew their strength was on bended knee. That army is still assembling, and many vacancies still exist.

You can still sign up! It’s not too late to answer the call. You can join the ranks and volunteer to be commissioned as one of God’s Servant Velvet Warriors.

I think I can hear the drumbeats in the background. I think I can hear yet another trumpet sound calling forth these warriors to mount the walls of intercession. Who will answer these calls? Who will blend their very own heartbeat with His heart?

There is a cry yet to be heard that combines the various forms of Spirit-led and Spirit-empowered worship and prayer.

These prayers can take on many forms, as the wind blows wherever it wishes, which are completely biblical and are completely under the oversight of the Holy Spirit. “For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit” (1 Cor. 14:2, NIV).

Let’s conspire with God — combine praying in the Spirit through the gift of tongues and praying in the Spirit through intense, fervent travail in order to give birth to new seasons and fresh awakenings.
