Russ Walden is a prophet and marketplace apostle with over 30 years of service in the Kingdom of God. Russ and his wife Kitty founded Father’s Heart Ministry in 2007 and since then have prophesied to thousands around the world. Russ and Kitty minister in the prophetic with astonishing accuracy bringing breakthrough to people longing to see their destiny in life fulfilled.
Russ was born again in 1967 and called to the ministry in 1972 through an open vision of the cross and the throne of God. He served as a pastor in several churches in the southern states and as a top level denominational leader before launching into a world-wide traveling ministry.
In the early 90’s Russ established a successful business in the IT sector in the Midwest. Russ and his wife Kitty converted the business to a marketplace model and out of that Father’s Heart Ministry was born. The ministry exploded with growth and has since that time taken them around the world.
In the prophetic ministry, Russell’s life has given witness to many creative miracles, healings and two resurrections from the dead. Russ has seen cancers and terminal diseases reversed through the power of prayer and the gifts of the Spirit. The ministry that Russ moves in is not just talking “about” Jesus but manifesting and activating the demonstration of Spirit and the demonstration of God’s power.
Each day Prophet Russ releases a powerful word that reaches over 200,000 each month. Russ brings a new dimension of personal empowerment to the prophetic through his dynamic and positive anointing. Russ flows in prophetic wisdom drawn from a lifetime of revelatory inquiry into the deep things of God.
Russ and his wife Kitty have a passion to raise up a relevant prophet generation through mentoring, prophetic schools, and personal ministry. (For more information visit www.propheticnow.com)

QUESTION: Why are you selling prophetic words?
This is a common question we receive but no, we do not sell prophetic words. God’s word is not for sale, however as with all Christian ministries we do encourage giving. Please allow me to suggest a few scriptures: Was Samuel selling a prophetic word in 1 Sam. 9:7 when Saul brought him a gift? When God told the Israelites not to appear before Him empty was He teaching them to merchandise the anointing (Ex. 23:15)? Was Paul prostituting his anointing when he said those that preach the gospel should live of the gospel (1 Cor. 9:14)? In Matt. 10:8-10 did Jesus really mean that ministers should not receive gifts when He said “freely you received, freely give”? If so then why does the same passage say “the workman is worthy of his hire…”
After many generations the prophetic is still not widely accepted or acknowledged. Pastors take up offerings for their expenses without complaint but the prophetic is not seen as having that legitimacy. Changing minds takes time. We actually REQUEST not REQUIRE donation – – our ministers respond to 100’s at times 1000’s of requests with maybe 1 in a 100 that honors God enough to support the ministry they ask for … so I respect your right to an opinion and trust you will at the very least ponder what light the passages above might give.
QUESTION: Do you require donation for prophetic requests?
ANSWER: NO. We encourage donations but we respond as possible to every request that comes in donation or not. Like any other ministry (such as your local church), donations are needful to pay the expenses related to what we do. This is self evident in our view but out of kindness we want to answer the question because it comes up occasionally. There are many scripture references that speak of this, one of which speaks directly to prophetic ministry (please look up 1 Sam. 9:6-9 – it couldn’t be clearer.) Requests are not ignored simply because someone does not donate.
