Prophecy has been taken to lightly by many in this day and age. Hearing the voice of God, and speaking it to His Church, is never a light matters. There are many voices out there. A true prophet, that hears the Lord Jesus, must seek the confirmation of what he hears. The true prophet must always check himself making sure he is not speaking his own mind. And, we should all help prophets with any concerns upon our hearts.
I believe all of us in the body of Christ have failed our prophets, and we must help to restore them.
