See Prayer Motivator QuizBeginning intercessors often start with urgent Prayer Targets. The sudden appearance of an aggressive, foreign-backed LGBT agenda in Belize moved many to pray to defeat it. But we found it wasn’t enough to hit a few Prayer Targets. It wasn’t enough to win a few battles to forestall the LGBT advocates in the courts. They kept hitting back with more. We needed a Prayer Campaign for the whole arena of families in Belize. The brokenness of families allowed the LGBT agenda into the gaps. We must fill the gaps with ongoing prayer for stronger marriages and stronger families.

And the family is just one of the 7 mountains of influence in the nation. Our Belize Prayer Network also has Prayer Campaigns for spiritual life, education, economy, government, music & arts, and media. Prayer Campaigns need Prophetic Direction from our Commander-in-Chief. That is our 3rd of our 9 motivations to pray. We listen for Prophetic Direction on how to pray and how to conduct our spiritual warfare campaigns. See our Revelations page for some examples.

Once we get Prophetic Direction from God, the enemy will try to keep us from actually taking ground. We can expect Power Encounters with God to overcome the power of the enemy. We will need power gifts to save, heal and deliver people from his grip. These Power Encounters can move mountains. They lead to Praise Reports, which build faith for more Praise Reports. Testimonies tend to trigger more testimonies. We seek God for Praise Reports in our community to be multiplied on the district level, the national level and global level. We see Jesus as not just our Lord, but Lord of our nation and Lord of the earth. The more we magnify Him, the more our Passion for Jesus grows.

Our Passion for Jesus, the 6th of the 9 motivations to pray, keeps us praying no matter what the results. We pray to stay close to Him believing not only that He has the answer to every prayer. He is the ultimate answer to every prayer. And no matter what is happening now, in Him we now have “every spiritual blessing” in the heavenly realms (Eph. 1:3). These are the Personal Rewards of prayer. We receive the Personal Rewards of spiritual, emotional and physical blessings when we pray. For God desires that “your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless” and sanctified (1 Thess. 5:23).

Those blessings are really magnified in when we join in Participation with others who have a passion for Jesus too. Or who share any other motivations to pray. Our Participation in deepening relationships adds depth to our prayers. We will need those deep and faithful relationships as we engage in Preparing for the End-times. That is the last of our 9 motivation to pray. Jesus’ main message in speaking of Preparing for the End-times was to watch and pray (Luke 21:36; see also Matt. 24:4,42,43; Mark 13:5,34-37). We must recognize the signs of those times as they unfold. They will show us how to prepare the way for the Christ and not for the Antichrist. As we do, the prayer movement will keep growing stronger, until Jesus returns for His victorious Bride. How do we become victorious?
