Chariots of Prayer

By Missey Butler
Guest Writer

CBN.com - A call to prayer has been sounded across these United States once again.

The King of Heaven is lowering His mighty scepter decreeing that His “Chariots of Prayer” will begin to charge forth across this land with swiftness and accuracy.

"The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands of thousands; the Lord has come from Sinai into his sanctuary." (Psalm 68:17)

This holy command is being heard by keenly discerning ears, those who have distinguished the voice of their Holy Commander. These are the ones who listen intently for the sound of the rustling of the mulberry trees.

"And it shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly. For then the LORD will go out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines.” (2 Samuel 5:24).

We are once again being called to “fall in” as good soldiers to our specified ranks, in order to receiving divine instruction as we stand united in intercessory prayer for righteous order to again be established in the courts of our land. We firmly stand shoulder to shoulder, shield to shield as we decree and declare God’s rule and reign within our judicial systems.

As multitudes of fervent prayer warriors have been answering the call, more and more reports are being heard of glimpses into the unseen realm, where principalities and powers are fiercely engaging in a hand to hand combat, warring tirelessly as the battle continues to escalate. 

One particular vision was that of a great and mighty warring chariot that led the multitudes of smaller chariots across the vast battlefront. Violently charging forth, mighty horse drawn carts were seen moving with a stampeding veracity as they bore a serpentine path in and around the bewildered opposition! 

A whirlwind of dirt, dust and rock clouded around the maze of the advancing entourage, blinding the eyes of the enemy. The chariot choppers twisting and grinding as a reckoning force to be contended with. What a spectacular sight to behold! 

The enemy began falling dramatically to the right and to the left, in great numbers as the scene continued to unfold.  But a very interesting observation was soon to be discovered.  As the vision continued it was noted that the thousands upon thousands of chariots charging across the land had no occupants! There was nobody guiding the horses. They looked to be mysteriously empty? 

Only a very discerning eye could actually see within the spiritual realm, the reality of what was taking place.  A few were granted the ability to see that the horse drawn chariots were indeed occupied.  They contained the precious petitions and prayers of those saints who cried out day and night for divine justice to be restored once again to this great land. The faithful prayers of those called by His name were being divinely transported by the mighty warrior – King, Jesus Christ.

What a truly awesome sight to behold, as this holy procession of chariots began triumphantly ascended upward and upward, higher and higher to the very Throne Room of God Himself.

A resounding cry was heard to be echoed throughout the hallowed halls of Heaven:

"In your majesty ride forth victoriously in behalf of truth, humility and righteousness; let you right hand display awesome deeds.  Let your sharp arrows pierce the hearts of the king’s enemies; let the nations fall beneath your feet.  Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom." (Psalm 45: 4-6)
