Author Betty A. Collins is an intercessor with the gift of prophecy. In her book, Travailing In Prayer, she demonstrates the power of prayer and intercession and also exemplifies how to be effective with the gift of the prophetic.
Jesus travailed at Gethsemane, interceding, and agonizing ...for the whole creation. He prayed, "Not my will, but thou will be done." The Holy Spirit intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. For years, at 3:00 am, the Holy Spirit woke me up to pray. One morning, I was awakened by a bright light shining in one corner of my bedroom. I felt led to pray for specific individuals. Later that day, the first person I prayed for called saying they woke up early that morning with chest pains and difficulty breathing. They're fine now. When I told God I wanted to be a Missionary, He made me a missionary in the workplace; I've spearheaded lunchtime Bible Study groups and was an Intercessor. The workplace is a big mission field. God taught me about demon spirits. I interceded on behalf of people possessed with or oppressed by demons. Betty A. Collins is an Intercessor and has the gift of Prophesy.
