Chapter 1: Is There No Answer From God?
We are in a season of unprecedented prayer action. There is so much teaching going out about spiritual warfare, praying effectively, worship, being intimate with God, spiritual mapping, prophetic prayer and prophetic actions, fasting prayer, breakthrough prayer, etc. Many terminologies have been coined with regard to communicating with God. Many wonderful books have been written about prayer, more songs and even more poems have been written. I have been blessed to learn quite a lot about prayer from many people of God both in their written and spoken word. I am glad that God has given a wealth of revelation with regard to this area to His people, more so in this season than any other time in history.
If there was a season when people have been taught much about praying for their territories, this is it. Organized prayer has been done from the individual level to continental and transcontinental level. Numerous global prayer movements have been working over the years to bring people and whole nations into the place of prayer. There is the global prayer day when multitudes of Christians in dozens of nations across the entire earth gather together in stadiums and churches to pray the same prayer points, in the same day. Then there are other movements which focus on filling huge stadiums with thousands of believers for the purpose of prayer. If there was ever a time when the heavens were literally bombarded with prayer and worship, this is it.
However, with all the prayer that has gone up to the heavens, there is very little in terms of answers to the volume of prayer that has been offered. Imagine if a farmer planted a lot of seed on to a patch of prepared ground. The farmer would have expectation of a good harvest. However, if he has done all he knows to do, and then only a little handful of the seeds germinate, he would get discouraged with his harvest.
