The prophetic ministry starts with being in the presence of the Lord before it admonish, warns, directs, encourages, intercedes, teaches and counsels. When the prophet knows the heart and mind of the Lord, they will speak the word of the Lord to the church, individuals, communities, and nations. The prophet stands before the people as one who hears the voice of the Lord and who speaks with love and articulates with accuracy. There is always a dependency on the Holy Spirit.
