Join us for our April Prayer Day!
Bear one another’s burdens…
Join us for a day of prayer and fasting. Please submit your prayer request either on this page or in the Intercessory Battalion Facebook group.
Pray or fast according to what your time or health permits. Do not feel bad if you cannot fast or if you don’t have much time. If we are joining together for one another on the same day we are already in agreement and whatever you can do – God knows and hears…
We also have an ongoing group for prayer. If you would like, feel free to join us!
Have you heard of Cry Out 16?
On September 23rd, women all over the United States will be uniting in prayer together in a simulcast prayer event.
If you are near Water Valley, KY, you can join Emily, Karen, Judye, and other ladies at Pentecostal Tabernacle. You can find more information on their website by clicking here.
If you are near San Bernardino, CA, you are invited to join Diania (I’m trying to convince her to join us back on RSHTH 😉 ), Shani, and myself (Angie) at Trinity Full Gospel Church. We have a Facebook event set up for this location and you can find more information by going to that page by clicking here.
It is time for us to CRY OUT! Join us in prayer for our nation, our families, and for REVIVAL!
PS: We’d love it if you joined us in our Intercessory Prayer Facebook group, Women on the Warpath!
As I mentioned on here not long ago, we have begun having monthly prayer days that have been turning out results that only God can bring. Our Father has amazed us with His love and answers to prayer!
For the month of August, I felt as though we needed more than just one day. Some of those in our Women On The Warpath group need some major breakthroughs. It also feels as though we are on the verge of something. In my spirit it feels as though if we just push a little further, something is going to break forth and flood out.
I want to see that wall break and feel that flood! We need these breakthroughs!
So this month, some of us are participating in a week instead of just the day. The prayer day will still fall during the prayer week, so we will all be united.
Also, no one will think any less of those that participate in the one day event but not the full week. However, we do appreciate any bit that you feel lead to do!

Challenge Yourself Spiritually With A Different Type of Fast (Just an article on Charisma that I read a few days ago that has challenged me.)
Last year in March, my Mom (Janice) felt to organize a day of prayer. She created a Facebook event and we invited some ladies we knew to join us. The day went well and we all agreed that we should do it again.
This last February, Emily posted a video on YouTube that she felt led by the Holy Spirit to discuss becoming a woman on the warpath.
March rolled around again, and my Mom said again that we needed another prayer day. When I went to create the Facebook event, I was surprised to find that we were almost exactly one year from when we had done the last one… So I kept the same date, thinking maybe we would have a yearly event.
The event grew fast with women coming together from all over the world, and we quickly decided to create a Facebook group. Given the word that was given to Emily the month before, I asked her if it would be okay to continue on with the same theme. On our first prayer day, we agreed that this should not be a yearly event, but once a month. God is definitely up to something here!
Back up to before we even reached the first day of prayer, we were hearing reports of prayer requests being answered! This had nothing to do with who organized it or who was praying… It was the number of ladies UNITED together and storming Heaven with prayers on each other’s behalf.
Since then, we have lost count with how many prayers have been answered in one way or another. Not every single request receives the miraculous outcome we hope for… but very many do! Homes restored, strongholds torn down, bodies healed, finances miraculously covered, favor where there was not much hope, and the list goes on and on…
We are praying daily… but we would love for more to join us that are willing to pray for a move of God. Women who are determined, women who are weak and need others to stand in the gap, women who love God and know that Jesus Christ is the same today, yesterday, and forever!
Think of it as a virtual 24 hour prayer room! No matter the day, the time, or the circumstance there is a place to find someone awake that is willing to kneel in prayer. No need is too great or small… it can even be unspoken! We will pray with you, for you, cry with you, rejoice with you… We are an army, we are sisters, and we don’t stop praying until there is an answer from God.
Not interested in the Facebook group but would like to join us on the 15th every month?

“God, how much more do You think I can handle? You said You wouldn’t put more on me than I can bare!”
Most Christians struggle with what God has called them to do with their life. “Lord, do You want me to sing? Preach? Pastor? Evangelize? Teach? Be a missionary? What Lord?”
We are all called to be a witness for His Kingdom. To spread His gospel to anyone that we can and sometimes, that’s just by letting His light shine through us.
But there is another calling that most people try to ignore. It can be heavy, burdensome, time consuming, and definitely takes dedication. That is the calling of “Intercession”.
In Beni Johnson’s book, The Happy Intercessor, she defines the calling of being an intercessor as “capturing the heartbeat of Heaven and declaring or praying it into your world.” It’s true agreement with Heaven.
As I read this book, I found myself identifying with almost everything that Sis. Beni wrote about. For as long as I can remember, I could feel the “emotions”, “spiritual joy or turmoil” or the “attitudes” of those around me. I could “discern” things from a very young age. I knew when a situation was considered Godly or un-Godly.
I also “learned” to carry the weight of those around me. I would let it bother me and worry me to the point I would make myself sick. I didn’t know how to lay it down. Sometimes, I still get to the point where the burden is almost too much to carry. I will pray about it, cry, lament, whatever, but when it comes to fully “laying it down”, I still get stuck at that point.
God never meant for us to carry the burdens. He meant for us to lay them down at the feet of Jesus and LEAVE them. Not pick them back up to take back with us.
Interceding on the behalf of others can be hard work. Satan is doing his job well. He came to steal, kill, and destroy and Christ came that we may have life and have it more abundantly! As an Intercessor, we have to make sure that we are doing our job. You’ll know when you have that sudden urge in the pit if your stomach that something isn’t quite right. Sometimes, you feel it when you are around certain people or approaching a certain situation. It could be the very prayers that you’ve prayed that it takes to turn a situation around.
I pray for my husband and my children everyday. For God to place a hedge of protection around them. What if I didn’t pray for them everyday?
Have you ever had an inkling that something was wrong or was going to happen before it happened? Well, God prepared me for such a thing about 2 years ago that involved my husband. Two weeks before an incident occurred, God overwhelmed me with a burden to pray. I knew something was going to happen, I just didn’t know what. I was in spiritual and physical turmoil. Constant intercession. If I wasn’t prayed up and prepared, I would not have been able to deal with the situation that happened. It could have been much worse if I had not been prayed up and had not covered my husband with prayers.
If you believe that you are called to be an Intercessor, there are several books out there about it, but I highly recommend The Happy Intercessor by Beni Johnson. It will definitely help you find the joy of being called to intercede to know what a privilege it is to be able to join in the heartbeat of Heaven.
