The prophetic intercessors are a particular cohort of the Lord’s army and are called to: pray over and for the church and the nations to help open the gates and make way for King Jesus; to usher in the Kingdom of God and His government; to build altars of prayer to Him in the regions where each are positioned. We are gathering a network of strategically-positioned, prophetic intercession groups, who know how to take and spiritually occupy territory for the Kingdom of God in any given nation.
