Garris Elkins: 'The Drones Of Prayer Are Coming'

Garris Elkins: 'The Drones Of Prayer Are Coming'

In order to wisely navigate this unique moment in human history, we will need an abundance of God's wisdom. Wisdom gives us the ability to conceptualize a larger reality - a Kingdom reality. That reality is seen most clearly when viewed from a heavenly perspective where we are now seated with Jesus at the right hand of the Father. From our heavenly position in Christ, we are able to see this life in a radically different way - giving us the ability to create and release culture-shifting prayers in the form of declarations, decrees and prophesy.
This concept of Heaven-to-Earth prayer is like the flight of a drone that provides a heavenly perspective to its earthbound pilot. Without this heavenly perspective, the impact of our prayers will be limited because we will craft our prayers from within the narrow scope of an earthbound view of reality.
Seeing From a Higher Perspective - Heaven's Viewpoint
In the last few years, drone technology has developed to such a degree that you can now purchase a drone with a high-definition camera attached. These drones can be wirelessly linked to your smart phone to follow you wherever you travel. The camera provides a video similar to one produced by a professional camera-person riding in a helicopter filming the world below for a high-quality television documentary.
I have a friend who has a photography business. Right after purchasing an excellent camera, the next thing he purchased was a drone with an attached, high-definition camera. The "money shot" in each of his videos comes from the drone footage. He takes the viewer higher to see a perspective not visible from the limitations of an earthbound camera.
In one video he was driving through the wide-open sagebrush expanse of the American West. His drone was able to film his moving vehicle from 300 hundred feet above while he was traveling 40 miles an hour down a dusty country road. The drone was pacing his car providing spectacular views of the surrounding countryside while feeding back the images to the smart-phone he held in his hand. The camera footage was spectacular!
When a drone first lifts off the ground and the camera begins to roll, everything changes. Objects next to buildings that were previously hidden from horizontal sight are now revealed from a vertical perspective. Side roads never before seen are revealed for the first time. Unexplored canyons hidden beyond the edge of a tree-lined roadway are brought into view with the help of the drone's elevated camera position.
If we are going to partner with God to bring Heaven to Earth, we must first see from Heaven's viewpoint. We can only import what we can see. God the Father seated us with Jesus at His right hand to provide us with a view of our world only seen from the throne of God. This is the perspective Wisdom will use to help us conceptualize and release faith-filled prayers. Without Heaven's perspective we will rely on the resources of a narrow understanding of reality and a limited line of sight from which to craft our prayers.
God is calling you to experience a drone-like prayer life. What you see and declare from Heaven's perspective may be contrary to what is seen by those limited to an earthbound vision of reality. Speak the truth in love to those who question what you see and remain humble if opposition comes.
God gave this sight to you to use as an invitation for others to join you to view together the higher panoramic revelation of what God is about to do on the Earth as it is in Heaven.
