Prayer and Intercessory Ministry is a support ministry which under girds all IRC Ministries, regionally and internationally in the area of prayer.
Additionally, The Prayer and Intercessory Ministry has developed a structure within IRC to help facilitate and support strategic prayer throughout every IRC church. This structure begins at the local church level with each Pastor and prayer leader which flows through to each Region and up to the International level. Much like Moses had Aaron and Hur to lift his arms during battle (Exodus 17:8-13), Prayer and Intercessory Ministry is here to lift each Pastor and Prayer Leader’s arms in the area of prayer. Every member of Prayer and Intercessory Ministry must function under the local pastor and regional pastor structure as Prayer and Intercessory Ministry works cooperatively through IRC Outreach’s existing regional structure (Regional Pastors/Regional Prayer Leaders).
Prayer – We are all called to “pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:15 “[God ] who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:4
Urgency – There is an urgency to prepare an army of prayer warriors within International Revival Campaigns Prayer and Intercessory Ministry to equip, train and empower others to engage in spiritual warfare on behalf of our ministry. “for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.” 1 Thessalonians 5:2.
Rescue – Prayer and Intercessory Ministry believes God to rebuild broken lives, free the captives, restore sight to the blind and give hope to the hopeless.“…He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed.” Luke 4:18.
Pray through – Prayer and Intercessory Ministry “prays through” until we “break through” on behalf of our founder, leaders ,elders, Apostles, Prophets, pastors, evangelists, missionaries, leaders, help ministers,laity and their families. Through prayer we undergird, protect and cover each other against the wiles of the enemy. “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn…”Isaiah 54:17
Obedience – Prayer & Intercessory Ministry strives to obey the Word of God and His commands. As intercessors, obedience is required to stand in the gap. “[Jesus] who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear, though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.” Hebrews 5:7-8.
Spiritual Gifts – Prayer & Intercessory Ministry uses the gift of intercession to edify and strengthen the ministry of International Revival Campaigns. “Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them…”Romans 12:6.
Effectiveness – International Revival Campaigns Prayer & Intercessory Ministry is called to intercede for the Revival, Evangelism and establishment and growth of churches worldwide. “Therefore, go ye and make disciples of all nations…” Matthew 28:19.
