According to James Goll, for those who are watchmen and prophetic intercessors, the assignment is to scan the horizon for potential dangers. This word from him includes covering prophetic declarations, something that he believes is the final piece of a puzzle. He also shares how that works when interceding in prayer.
We do not use the words proclaim or proclamation often in our ordinary speech. We prefer synonymous words such as announce, publish, invite or declare. Let’s revive proclamation as one of our best ways to give expression to prophetic intercession. Let’s cry out, pronounce, herald, and even decree. We speak on behalf of the King, do we not? As His own sons and daughters, we can proclaim God’s truth with joyful confidence in any situation.
Consider a few Scriptures of proclamation: “I will proclaim the name of the Lord. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! He is the Rock, His works are perfect, and all His ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is He.” (Deuteronomy 32:3-4 NIV)
