Today in the prayer room, during a weekly prayer meeting for human trafficking, a prophetic singer delivered a spoken-word song about the zeal of Jesus and the ending of human trafficking. The rap begins at 1:12:50 continues for about 15 minutes.
This is just another example of how God is calling forth Intercessory-Abolitionists from every area of life– the arts, media, government, the chruch, etc. Before long an army of men and women, marked for the cause of God’s justice being realized on the earth, will lay down their lives for the poor. They will live lifestyles abandoned to serve the poor through their vocation, whether public office, or law, or medicine, or accounting, or journalism just to name a few fields.
Of particular interest are musicians and singers. Music has always steered culture. Not only is God putting HIs message in the hearts and mouths of artists who will speak out in new ways against modern-day slavery, but these new expressions of the message will reach ears that are out of range for politicians and preachers alike. When a few voices sing the songs of deliverance, a generation will rise up and follow, and when that happens, a culture of worship and intercession will emerge where a generation begins to actually sing their prayers. They’ll sing lyrics while they’re in their cars, while they’re at the office, even as they exercise. And whether they know it or not, they will be crying out to heaven on behalf of the weak. And heaven will answer their cries.
