Dr. Steve Greene

Guest: James Goll

 

Dr. James Goll has always had a heart for intercessory prayer. But, he says, it takes a prophetic vision to continue such a ministry long-term. He has found that prayer ministries that endure over a period of years are those that operate from a context of inspiration. But what is it that motivates intercessors or intercessory groups over the long haul?

Dr. Goll, the president and founder of God Encounters Ministries, discusses that topic, including his newest book, Praying With God’s Heart: The Power and Purpose of Intercession, on the latest edition of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network with host Dr. Steve Greene.

Introduction

Dr. Steve Greene: I think I learned a lot about prayer and my relationship with the Lord by observing how my children responded to me when I was raising them. It's amazing what I saw in them, and then I go to my prayer closet and hear some of the same things. I often felt that my role as dad was to stand still in the kitchen with money in one hand and cookies in another. If you knew my kids, it would be a battle of which they wanted most cookies or the money. As they aged, you know what it was. So, the ending machine dad was always their favorite dad, and throughout the years as they made their teenage requests be known to me it seemed very helpful when they understood my point of view. It helped me to understand them when they understood me. I know that makes sense to all you parents. But sometimes they went the extra mile to press into me to understand why and how I was trying to protect them. Of course, they had their own responses to my thoughts. But when they made a strong effort to listen to me and understand my heart, things seem to go better for them. It went better for me too. when they said things to me like, and this is almost a direct quote of one … I remember it brought tears My eyes because I just recently saw them again and they brought grandkids over to the house. … I'm not going to forget that time in August when my daughter held my hand just after my heart surgery. It really came to my mind as I was thinking about this prayer and what she said to me and it was something like this: She said Dad, and she was a teenager, I really want to honor you in this decision. I want to do the right thing I want you to be happy with the decision I make. She really said that. I probably was being worked. She had a way of doing that and I didn't care, but it moved me almost to tears then as it does now. Not so far that the car keys jumped out of my pocket, you understand, but in that that it moved me that I wanted to bless her and I wanted to find a way to make it work for her. So, I really believe they taught me a lot about how to approach God by how they approached me and what I observed and how it made me feel when I went to the prayer closet.

 

Dr. Steve Greene: I'm excited to introduce you to my guest today. He's written a powerful book that’s titled Praying with God's Heart: The Power and Purpose of Intercession. If you're a regular listener on the Charisma Podcast Network, you know about the show God Encounters Today with James W. Goll. He's my guest and I'm so excited. I've known him for years. I've read a lot of his prophecies. I've read his books. I've read a lot of what he's written for Charisma, and I've never talked to him until just before we started this podcast. His show is a weekly Monday show. You can't miss it on the Charisma Podcast Network. If you have, please go back and catch up because it'll bless your heart. He's the founder of God Encounters Ministries; the author of more than 40 books and 20 Bible study guides. He's just a man of God and I so respect him. I respect the way he approaches the prophetic and he's greatly respected here at Charisma.

 

I'm so blessed by you. And just before we dive into your book, I don't want to get into it without you telling us a little bit about the heart and the purpose of prophetic intercession.

 

James Goll Bio

·         Founder and president of God Encounters Ministries

·         Founded numerous ministries including Prayer Storm and Women on the Frontlines

·         Shared Jesus in more than 50 nations, teaching and imparting the power of intercession, prophetic ministry and life in the Spirit

·         A member of the Harvest International Ministries apostolic team and an instructor in the Wagner Leadership Institute and Christian Leadership University

 

Dr. James Goll: I have actually written over 40 books and 20 study manuals, etc. And I have been moving in a gift of prophecy for about 45 years and in prophetic ministry, and then in some circles recognized in the office of a prophet in actually many nations of the world. So, what I say is when people ask me particularly about the prophetic, I say to them: the place where the waters run the deepest in the prophetic for me, not necessarily someone else, for me, is when I read the spirit of Revelation along with the power and the purpose of prayer. So, for me, I, along with my dear friend Cindy Jacobs, she's known as the mama and I'm known as the Papa a prophetic intercession around the world where we wed hearing from God, the spirit of Revelation, and then we turn what we hear into prayer intercession. So, prophetic intercession is the joining of the two hands of two different complimentary streams into that one divine purpose.

 

Dr. Steve Greene: What do you mean by praying with God's heart? Help us understand that.

 

Dr. James Goll: Of the disciples, obviously we know that John the Beloved was the one at the Lord's Supper, the Last Supper, that it says he leaned his head or upon the chest of the Messiah, Jesus, so I have often pondered on that. I ask people, what did John the Beloved hear? Well, he heard maybe two things. He heard or felt the rising and the falling of the chest that was breathing in and breathing out. But he also heard this: He heard the very heart of God. I believe that in prophetic intercession, in this new book I have written, praying with God's heart, it is not as much praying to God petitions, which is awesome and an art and a privilege, that it is leaning in, like John the Beloved, to hear the very heart of God coming in union with what is in God's heart. Then, not praying at God. You know, it's like communication. Sometimes we talk at people. But good communication is when we talk with people. That requires pause and listening. So, praying with God's heart requires leaning in and to hear the heart of God, not praying at God, that Jesus lives, resides at the father's right hand. But we are also seated with Christ Jesus as a believer with Christ in the heavenly places. So, in prophetic intercession, I'm about as much praying to God as I'm leaning in to the intercession that Jesus is doing. So, I'm not as much praying at God, I'm praying with God out of what's in his heart. I absolutely love it, by the Way.

 

Dr. Steve Greene: I need to hear this every time before I enter my prayer closet in the morning. I want to play this back and hear you say that. I want to ask you, do you think that praying the Lord's Prayer is intercessory prayer?

 

Dr. James Goll: Of course, it is. One of the reasons is there's devotional prayer, which is out of our own petition or devotional style, your communion with God, things of that nature. Then there is intercessory prayer, which would be one of several forms of prayer. In the book of Ephesians, Paul the Apostle wrote, “and praying with all prayers, in the plural, in all forms of prayer. So, there's multiple forms of prayer; intercession being one of them is where we are standing in the gap. In the model prayer of Jesus or the Lord's Prayer, He didn't say to his disciples to pray, say this after me or praise in this manner. My Father, give me this day my daily bread, forgive me of my sin, deliver me from evil, that is not the way that Jesus taught the model prayer. It's how we interpret it, and it's how we often pray it. But what Jesus actually taught was corporate identification. In other words, praying in a way that's bigger than your own life. And it is our Father. It's like the model of Daniel where he confessed generational sin. So, it isn't only forgive me my sins and my family. No. It is forgive us, and it is how often do you do it; daily. Forgive us this day our sin. So, intercessory prayer stands in the gap between God's righteous judgments that are due and the need for mercy on the people's behalf. So, in this model prayer or the prayer of Jesus, it is an invitation to devotional prayer, but it's also a step up to come up higher. Identify with your city, identify with the body of Christ in your region, identify with your nation, and pray to remove both the hindrances. Forgive us this day for our sin of abortion, let's say, and give us this day the solutions to our problems. I believe in devotional prayer, we need to cover it first. But Jesus also calls us all to pray with God's heart, which is also an identification with the needs of our people that we are all part of.
