In Revelation 1-3, there are 30 descriptions of Jesus. We want to learn how to pray through them. We will use the acronym ARK as we have learned from Mike Bickle.
Proverbs 18:10 declares, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” Just like in the time of Noah, the ark is a safe place.
First of all, AGREEMENT – let’s agree with what the description says about Jesus. He is the faithful witness. (Rev. 1:5)
The angels around God’s throne declare who Jesus is night and day. “You are worthy, You are holy.” They speak of who God is with affection and thanksgiving.
Then, REVELATION – we ask God to give us fresh revelation of Jesus in relation to each description.
For example, we ask the Holy Spirit to reveal Jesus to us as the faithful witness.
Finally, KEEP THE PROPHECY. We must respond in practical ways as we ask for the Spirit’s help to keep the prophecy.
“Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book” (Rev. 22:7).
Keeping the prophecy refers to acting on Jesus’ commands and plans that are written in the book of Revelation. We are to apply them to our life by responding in faith and obedience to the specific truths about His name in our actions and attitudes, and by asking for the Spirit’s help to be faithful.
We obey, we proclaim or say, and we pray for the power of Jesus to release revival among the saints. We ask the Holy Spirit to empower us to follow through, praying through each description of Jesus in Revelation 1-3.
Examples of ARK – Jesus, the faithful witness
- Agreement: “Jesus, You are the faithful witness to the truth. Thank you.
- Revelation: “Reveal Yourself to me as the faithful witness.”
- Keep the prophecy: I commit to speak the truth, regardless of what it costs me. Holy Spirit, help me to speak up for the truth, even when it is not popular.”
Let’s try this out and focus on who Jesus is this week! Pray through the 30 descriptions of Jesus in Revelation 1-3!
We are so thankful for Him!
Let’s us know how we can be praying for you!
