Other questions that have been asked along
“Do you have to have a hammer to pray for the
lost?” Absolutely not! The hammer is a worship instrument like a
piano, guitar, drum or flag. It simply enhances, if you will, resonates
the prayer like any worship instrument enhances the song or prayer.
“Do John and Bruce still make hammers?” As far
as I know mine was the second and last hammer they made.
“Should everyone pray for witches?” My
intercessory prayer is at the unction of the Holy Spirit not at my own
personal desires. Therefore, if the Holy Spirit has anointed, called,
chosen and ordained you to pray for the lost including those deceived by
satan in witchcraft then be obedient to the LORD’s will in your life. HE
will guard what HE ordains. The Scriptures are very clear that YESHUA is
at the right hand of the FATHER interceding for us. For me personally,
YESHUA is always my first prayer partner. I listen to HIS prayers and
agree with HIM, that way it pretty much secures the outcome alleviating
a lot of disappointment and broken expectations.
“Do you travel with the hammer?” At the unction
of the Holy Spirit I took the hammer to the March 17, 2007 Glory Ring
Workshop in Salem, Oregon…it was the first time I ever used it in prayer
during a workshop. Would it surprise you that the woman I prayed for had
been raised in witchcraft?
Do you take your hammer to church? No, as with
all worship instruments it is essential to be sensitive to the place
where you worship and honor their parameters. I have always used my
worship instruments at home much more than any other place. True
intercessory prophetic prayer and dance does not include entertainment
or performance nor does it require a stage.
Above all, remember
that Jesus Christ was a carpenter and a hammer was a tool that HE used
on a regular basis. It seems to me that the fullness of HIS redemption
included being hammered to a cross for the salvation of all
humankind. It is imperative that we come into agreement with the price
YESHUA paid! That we come into agreement with HIS prayers for the lost
and with HIS atonement, anointing and resurrection power that sets the
captives free. It is about ELOHIM's Kingdom in heaven and on earth!
