On 20th of June, Brigitta Grace—appointed representative of DR Ir Niko Njotorahardjo for the International Council of Elders—shared about the immense power of prayer towers built by the hands of men, but dwelled by the Spirit of God.
An itinerant prophetic personality, Brigitta equips and motivates the saints and intercessors with prophetic teachings and timely messages. Since the year 2000, she has been participating yearly as the watchman representative and group leader for Indonesia at the annual ANCJ (All Nations Convocation Jerusalem) with Tom Hess.
Currently, Indonesia has 19 prayer towers, where believers-in-Christ would pray 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Back in Indonesia, she shared many things happening supernaturally such as sighting of angels, miracles, and wonders happening.
“It’s not time to slumber but to wake up! Look at your watch! It’s end time! We have no more time. We have the responsibility. When everything is restored, David’s throne will be restored,” said Brigitta.
“God always has His Ways. We praise and worship Him because God will draw people unto Him. When you praise and worship Him, you will be drawn into the Kingdom. It’s the love of God, which draws people to the Father.
“But we need to pray and worship Him like never before, not because people see that I’m good in my singing or talents. But God is our one audience. When we worship, we only have one audience, God. Hallelujah!” she continued.
What a privilege we have today because God has given us, the end-time generation, to get involved in ushering the Kingdom of Heaven. Hence, let us do it with our heart fully, whether spiritually, bodily, emotionally, and financially.
“It is the united corporate praise and worship, day and night, which is sweet-smelling incense to God. It’s not only one or two persons, but corporately and united as one person,” said Brigitta.
She continued sharing the eight points of the essence of a prayer tower:
#1 A PRAYER TOWER is the dwelling place of God
When King David built the house of God on Mount Zion, Ps 132:13-14 says, “For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling, saying, “This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it.”
#2 A PRAYER TOWER reflects us as mobile prayer towers
The prayer tower reminds us of the born-again reality we have within us, which is the spiritual man.
“Within our spiritual man, there’s a portal of Heaven because we are the temple of the Holy Spirit,” said Brigitta.
In the dream that Jacob had in Bethel, he saw the angels ascending and descending from heaven to earth in a stairway. After awaking from his slumber, Jacob exclaimed, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.” (Gen 28:17)
“In us, we also have a door to connect to Heaven. But first of all, we must become the high place to connect Heaven and earth, to activate the Spirit Man within us. We must release the working of the Holy Spirit. It’s not just talking about a physical tower but us as the prayer tower. You and I are the prayer tower. We carry the presence of God,” said Brigitta.
While she is trained to be sensitive to the dark spiritual forces, the Holy Spirit convicted her one day to fix her eyes on God and be conscious of Him on top of everything.
“Worship God and engage Him. Don’t look at the enemy (dark spiritual force) but look at God,” said Brigitta.
#3 A PRAYER TOWER is a place of transformation into Christ
“When you look at God’s face as a mirror, you will be transformed into what you see, from glory to glory. Maybe before that, you’re arrogant but you realize that Jesus is so beautiful. When you keep on worshiping Him, His Holy Spirit will change your heart and mind. All of a sudden, you’re a different person,” said Brigitta.
We may come to God with our agenda. But coming out from worshiping and praying, we possess God’s agenda. Transformation took place because we behold and focus on Jesus.
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. (2 Cor 3:18)
#4 A PRAYER TOWER is a place of refuge
“It happens many times when we go to that deep, deep worship, and encounter His Spirit. I experienced that before. Sometimes, when I am doing ministry, when I focus Him, everything on the evil side diminishes. Without knowing it, I’m in a place of worship,” said Brigitta.
#5 A PRAYER TOWER is a place to watch with God day and night
“We are watching with God day and night because He’s the chief watchman who does not sleep,” said Brigitta.
I will stand on my guard post
And station myself on the rampart;
And I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me,
And how I may reply when I am reproved.
She shared that the high place is a place where the eagles gather; eagles are known to be lonely species in the world.
“You’re supposed to go to a prayer tower to awaken spiritually. We want to do a lot of speaking in tongues because speaking in tongue is supposed to build your spiritual man and to position something from the Lord,” said Brigitta.
#6 A PRAYER TOWER is a place of rule and reign
“It’s the place of rule and reign over the spiritual dark forces. When we engage the presence of God, it is the ultimate weapon for spiritual welfare. When the presence of the evil force comes, you only need to declare and decree the Word of God. Hallelujah!” said Brigitta.
#7 A PRAYER TOWER is a place for unity and blessings
“It’s the place for unity and blessing. When the elders of the city, fivefold-ministers, three-generations gather together, the Lord is going to command a blessing on you. And you are going to release these blessings into the city. This is the place where you will see God!” said Brigitta.
Brigitta shared when our focus is right—which is on Jesus Christ—everything will be alright.
