This week I am going to share with you a lesson from my prophetic training on the topic of ‘Prophetic Prayer.’
Before I started developing prophetic training, I felt that Father was encouraging me to do something creative and different, something that had never been done before.
Recognising that we all learn in different ways, I include a number of different expressions and media in my training, including:
- Reading – providing insightful articles and links on the topics
- Writing – personal journal and forum
- Sharing the journey – relationally with others
- Coaching and mentoring
- Activation – in daily life
It has been a thrill for me to see participants already engaging , sharing testimonies and needs, praying for each other as well as working through the topics.
I am about two-thirds through developing this training and expect it to be completed by the end of November. Here is a bonus preview of Topic 2: Prophetic Prayer:
Topic 2: Prophetic Prayer
Hi everyone, and a warm welcome back to Enliven Prophetic Training.
A special thanks to those who have been engaging with us. I love hearing what others have to say about what they believe God is saying. We can learn from each other as we share different interpretations.
Please don’t hold back and feel free to challenge, chew over and add your opinions to my own ideas and insights. I’m on here to learn, too!

Activities To Do
This week we are continuing our focus on prophetic ministry as it relates to our personal relationship with God. Last week, our context was receiving a prophetic message (hearing His voice) for ourselves personally. This week, our focus is prophetic prayer.
My simple definition is:
Prophetic prayer is when we pray using information that has been supernaturally revealed to us by the Holy Spirit. **Note, this can be revelation we have received ourselves, or we can pray using a prophecy given to us by another person.
Here is a list of some things that will help you grow in the area of receiving revelation from God and participate in discussions:
1. Listen to the explanations of the different types of prophetic prayer in the podcast. In brief, these are: Receiving, Interceding, Warfaring, Ministering, Proclaiming.
Think about which type of prophetic prayer you could personally benefit from becoming stronger in, or could help you in a current situation you are facing.

2. This week, use your journal to write out a prophetic prayer, or make bullet-point notes to use as you pray.
You may like to use a prophecy given to you by someone else. If so, here is an article that can help:

3. Tell us which type of prophetic prayer you would like to work on and (if you feel comfortable doing so), share why.
4. Do you have a story about prophetic prayer from your past (or present) that you would like to share? Or a question you would like to ask? We’d love to hear from you!
5. Some optional related reading:
