Go after words of knowledge this week with people that you come into contact with (waitress, barber, cashier, stranger, etc) and go through your prophetic process in regard to words of knowledge.

Direction: Ask God to give you three details about family, education/work background, or dreams.  Once you have them, ask open questions to confirm like:

  • Tell me about your family. Are you married, have any kids?
  • What did you study in college? What jobs have you done before this?
  • What dreams or desires do you have for your life?

If your revelation is accurate, take the opportunity to prophesy into their life (without being weird) and bless them.
