From the desk of Steve Shultz:
It's a fresh season of intercession! There is great NEED for prayer around the world in this hour and we can declare "Your Kingdom come.
Your will be done
on earth as it is in Heaven" through our prayers – just as Jesus taught us to pray in Matthew 6.
Here is another great word from John Belt about prayer for the hour. I encourage you to read our recent words about intercession we've posted lately and seek God on where and how to direct your much needed prayers over the earth in this time.

When we have an established place of intimacy with God we then have the great responsibility and privilege to join Jesus where He ever lives to intercede in the heavens, interceding from Heaven's view. (Hebrews 7:25)
The Highest Place
Ephesians 2:6 And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
We are seated in the heavenly realms with Christ, the highest place that exists! Jesus has welcomed us to the most privileged place to reign with Him as kings and priests. His sacrifice and Blood has made this possible for us. God whole-heartedly desires us to grab hold of this powerful revelation of our position in Him.
It is just as Jesus said, "Abide in Me and let My words abide in you and you shall ask..." Our intimacy with God gives way to heavenly authority in our lives to pray as Jesus asked us to pray, "His Kingdom come and will be done on earth as it is in Heaven..."
God desires His Kingdom to expand through us. As we learn to live as habitations of God, filled with His Presence and glory, His authority will be released through our lives in such a way that corporate glory atmosphere will be released displacing the works of darkness.
A Vision of Glory Atmosphere
I recently had a vision where there were massive manifestations of angelic activity, deposits of Heaven on earth, and orbs of the glory of God dispensed in the atmosphere. One of these orbs transformed where I could look inside the orb and see the universe. It was an amazing view of Heaven's unlimited expanse in the glory of God.
It was so amazing that I wanted to take a picture of it, but then my "iPhone" camera would not function because of the level of God's power being released. Then the face of the iPhone melted and burned to a crisp as something would burn in an oven set on broil. The "iPhone" was now a "crispy critter".
What God is getting ready to pour out will be so powerful that you will not be able to market it. Compromise won't cut it. We cannot use what God is doing to promote ourselves. God will get all the glory and will make sure of it. His power is going to melt our earthly-minded approaches to things.
Just as Uzzah touched the Ark of His Presence foolishly and presumptuously we need to realize that God does not need our "hamburger-helper" (1 Samuel 5). Just give Him the glory and move on. God has graced us with the glory of His Presence dwelling inside of us. When He performs wonders, signs and miracles without our hands or through our hands we defer the glory to Him making sure we are not touching His work to foster our own agenda.
Intercede From the 3rd Heaven
To see His glory in such a way we are being called into "Heaven's view intercession". You could also call it interceding from the 3rd Heaven's perspective, the domain of God. We are not trying to break through the heavens. The heaven's are not an issue. God wants the breakthrough to happen inside of us, inside out.
God dwells inside of us. With this, we are seated in the heavenly realms looking down upon the earth armed with the authority of Christ. We are not interceding from underneath the clouds, but above. God has us above all things and has come to dwell inside of us, with the motive of exploding inside out of us, the intimacy and authority of Christ inside of us bringing forth manifestations of His glory.
Through vessels yielded in intimacy with God, intercession flowing out of this place, there will be an increased manifestation of the glory of Heaven upon our lives resulting in the blind eyes of others being opened to the reality of God with demonstrations and manifestations of His power.
