One of my favorite people in the halls of faith in the Kingdom is a man named Ress Howells. The reason this man though not as famous as some that we know like s Billy Graham, Kathryn Kulman, Bob Jones, Kim Clement and others. His life of intercession brought forth divine intervention in one of the darkest times in history.
I think besides Lou Engle this man is the greatest intercessor of church history. There is nothing more powerful than men and women of Prayer. Right now with inflation, gas prices, and the situation in Ukraine more than ever we need intercessors, men and women like Ress Howells, that will give themselves to continual prayer.
God told me a while back that I was to give my like to intercession like this man Ress Howells and to call a generation to do the same. The Bible tells us that more than anything God is looking for intercessors and that if we would pray he would heal the land.
Isaiah 59:16 New King James Version
He saw that there was no man, And wondered that there was no intercessor; Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; And His own righteousness, it sustained Him.
On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen;
All day and all night they will never keep silent.
You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves;
And give Him no rest until He establishes
And makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
The Power of the Intercessor
There are many more verses that show us that if we would pray and accept the call to intercession that God would intervene supernaturally. I have seen my prayers shift our city elections and bring change nationally and locally. I learned this principle from men and women like Lou Engle and Ress Howell – the power of the intercessor.
Ress Howell was raised up in a time of uncertainty much like ours. He was raised up during the time of Hilter and World War II. Many were afraid and paralyzed by fear as many are currently. But not this man. He had a Bible college in Wales and as Hilter advanced so did this intercessor and his company of intercessors began holding extending prayer meetings that Hitlers purpose would not prosper. This is a quote from the life of Howells,
I want to know that the Holy Spirit is stronger than the devil in the Nazi system. This is the battle of the ages, and victory here means victory for millions of people.” –Rees Howells (Grubb 274)
This sounds like a man that was understood the power of prayer. As bombs dropped it is said that these intercessors were in prayer and refused to be evacuated. They were believing God that God’s Justice would prevail. I believe God is again looking for men and women like Ress Howells that will give themselves to prayer.
Better yet I believe the Church is going to be marked by this burden again called travail for our nation. Prayer is the answer to Ukraine and our current crisis. We need crisis intercessors for Ukraine and those that will pray against a possible world war happening in this time. We need those that will say I will be the Ress Howells of this generation or the Lou Engle.
This is what The Joel 2 Generation the ministry I founded years ago is dedicated to. We are under the leadership of Lou Engles upper room network and The Awaken The Dawn movement. God has given me an assignment to raise up a “Ress Howells company” that will bring revival and change to world events through prayer. Will you join me?
