First Things First
Our first priority is friendship with God, dwelling with Him. Then we simply go with Him where He leads. David won many battles, but the mainspring of his heart was to dwell in the presence of God, “One thing I ask, that I may dwell….” (Psalm 27:4, John 1:11-14, Matt 9:38, Acts 1:8, Isaiah 66:1-2)
STRATEGY OF HEAVEN
He sent them two by two ahead of Him to every town and place where He was about to go.
He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go!" Luke 10:1-2
“Arrows were being shot into the world map in the prayer room and geese were flying over top of the arrows.”
God has often referred to our company as geese or as Bob Jones called us, ‘the Honkers.’ In this dream we knew it meant that a ‘home team’ was to cover the sent ones or the arrows of the Lord with prayer and intercession.
The ‘Prayer Strike Teams’ go out to the nations and wait on the Lord for divine revelation. Once they are on the ground, they can agree together in prayer and declare His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Meanwhile back at the Ekballo Missions Base, the ‘Home Team’ will fast and cover them with around the clock prayer, sharing any revelations they receive to the team on the field.
Ekballo Mission Teams work in unity with the body of Christ, strategically planning our prayer strikes. Ideally the prayer teams go in and break it open in the heavenlies ahead of the evangelists who prepare the way for the church planters.
PRAYER STRIKE BLUE PRINTS
We are a movement of the generations running together, "The hearts of the fathers turned towards the children and the children towards the fathers." Malachi 4:6
PRAYER STRIKE TEAMS
Our prayer teams work in tandem, harmony, and unity with the rest of the body of Christ, going ahead of the evangelists and church planters to prepare the way of the gospel.
The home team covers the team who is out in the nations with fasting and prayer, relaying any insight and revelation they received to those out on the mission field.
The prayer strike team out in the nations helps to raise up and impart contending prayer to the local indigenous leaders.
When the team returns back to the missions base they are welcomed back into families of affection, and now they become the home team to cover the next team that goes out to break open the heavenlies through prayer and fasting in the nations.
First we enter into worship and priest before the Lord. "High praises in our mouths and..." Psalm 149:6
Then from this place before the Lord we contend in prayer and declare with agreement that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. "Ask of Me and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron." Psalm 2
