A KEY TO THE KINGDOM :An Apostolic Prayer
I believe these strides toward Kingdom governance will birth revival in America.
As members of His ekklesia you, too, are called to be a part of this. As Holy Spirit has reemphasized Isaiah My prayer is that you would walk boldly in this authority God has delegated to you. Some of you may be instructed of the Lord, as I have been, to use your Isaiah Some of you are called to pray for your state capital, your city or even another nation. Others of you may be assigned to use your kingdom keys in the financial realm, for educational institutions or for the entertainment sector.
As you seek the Lord, He will reveal these and other assignments to you. As you lay hold of them, your intercession and obedience will release you into a partnership with God, resulting in even broader realms of influence. God is not finished with America, and He needs each one of us to help shift this nation!
Prophetic Prayers | The Key of David
He is calling forth Kingdom warriors who will effectively wield the Isaiah The Keys of The Ekklesia This invitation to cross the threshold back into the sphere of governmental intercession has not only been extended to me, but to the entire body of Christ. We must have both witnesses for them to meet the requirements of valid prayer requests. An important principle of prayer that needs to be mentioned here is to whom are we to direct our prayers? Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Never are we to pray to the Spirit as He abides within.
However, our prayers are to be directed to the Heavenly Father, regardless of the Scriptural name we may use. We may speak to the Father and Jesus interchangeably as we pray, but the Father is the one who will answer our prayers.
Volumes have been written about prayer and this subject could be an exhaustive one in itself. However, it will suffice for us to mention only a few more things here.
Our petitions to the Lord should be continuous. This can only take place as we bring our thoughts and hearts into a constant attitude of prayer. The Lord desires that we have unbroken fellowship with Him. We also are not to be discouraged if our prayers are not answered immediately. Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking reverently and the door will be opened to you. For every one who keeps on asking receives, and he who keeps on seeking finds, and to him who keeps on knocking it will be opened.
This does not mean we are to beg God for our answers, but we are to be diligent and to persevere until our answers come. Nevertheless, we can pray many ways about the same problem until it is resolved and we obtain our answer.
There are two extremes that the enemy attempts to put upon people in this area. One is to make them think that it is sin and shows lack of faith to ever mention a request to God a second time. He gets them to refuse to ever ask prayer over a problem after praying once. This erroneous belief opens the door to the enemy in situations where he is hindering prayer answers. It sometimes takes considerable spiritual prayer force applied to a specific problem before its answer comes. The problem needs to be prayed completely through before we cease to ask.
The other extreme is to continually ask, beg and be prayed for in every prayer line, over and over. This lets the enemy keep our eyes on our problem instead of on the Lord. There is a balance that needs to be applied as we seek God for our answers. If we have peace about something, then we need not continually ask God about it. If we do not have rest in our heart about it, we need to keep praying until we pray the matter through and get peace about it.
Praying in the Spirit is helpful here, as many times we do not know how to pray about a situation. For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. And when thou prayest, thou shall not be as the hypocrites are: For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.
Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
- Isaiah The Key to Governmental Authority | DSM;
- Spiritual Keys of Authority and Power?
- Nirvikalpa Samadhi (Teachings).
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: Be not ye therefore like unto them: After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. The most important thing the Lord is stressing here is that our hearts need to be right before Him when we pray. Hypocrites that are praying to be heard by others will not be heard by God.
The reward they receive is the pleasure they derive from being able to be seen and heard of men, yet they have no reward from their heavenly Father.
What are the “Keys of the Kingdom”?
The Lord instructs us to pray from the secret chambers of our hearts; this is what He means by entering into our closets. We are to pray from our hearts to the Father and not pray just to be heard of men. He also says that the heathens use vain repetitions and we are not to do this.
Hindus and Moslems chant prayers such as these.
Some use prayer beads as they rotely repeat the same prayers. God is not as interested in the quantity of our prayers as He is in the quality. Jesus, in His prayer to the Father, begins with an attitude of worship, then asks that the will of God be done in earth. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

The Key of David Revelation 3: Here are some notes from Ihop on this prayer that I have edited and added to: This is a description of the heights of glory that God invites us to experience in this life. This life vision requires a lifestyle that is most demanding but most rewarding. The higher a mountain climber ascends the more difficult it becomes yet it becomes more rewarding at each new height. Paul presents a 4-fold progression of how we grow in the Spirit. This prayer provides us with a biblical pattern for pursuing the deep things of God 1 Cor.
It is in itself a theological statement of how to cultivate intimacy with God. There are four stages though we will always need to pray to continually to experience each of the four stages to sustain them in all seasons. Jesus is formed in us as He manifests His presence in us as we grow in the Holy Spirit. My children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you … Gal. In other words, it requires supernatural aid to experience it. The width speaks of His manifold provision for any person Jew and Gentile or situation in this life.
Prayer: One of the Keys to the Kingdom
The length speaks of reaching far beyond our sin and continuing forever. The depth of love points to the depths that Jesus descended to pay the price that we might be His Bride Phil. The heights of love speak of the measure of exaltation that we receive in His grace. We were created to delight in the feeling of being loved by God. Our spirit craves this. God desires to release this to us.
