Prayer Summary for September 16, 2020

The following was taught and prayed through during our 9:30 a.m. family prayer time with Sue DeGroot

John 4:46-53 So Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at Capernaum. When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and implored Him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. Then Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe.” The nobleman said to Him, “Sir, come down before my child dies!” Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your son lives.” So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way. And as he was now going down, his servants met him and told him, saying, “Your son lives!” Then he inquired of them the hour when he got better. And they said to him, “Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.” So the father knew that it was at the same hour in which Jesus said to him, “Your son lives.” And he himself believed, and his whole household.

I heard there are assignments of death and destruction arrayed against our families. We are standing in the gap and pleading the blood for those in our families who are in need of a healing/miracle.

Nancy Dufresne Confession regarding Ps 103:1-5
God’s healing power reaches all sickness and disease. So we bless the Lord that they are healed of all sickness and disease now. Every bone, blood cell, organ, tissue, nerve, muscle, joint, tendon, and cell of their body are healed and whole now. They are whole from the top of their head to the soles of their feet now. And the strength and health of youth are renewed in them now.

The following was taught and prayed through during our 6 a.m. prayer time with Terry Nyenhuis

1 Tim 2:1-4
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Romans 15:1-7
We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification. 3 For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.” 4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. 5 Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, 6 that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.

We prayed towards this excerpt from Dr. Barclays prophecy in 2005:

…“I see a non Spirit filled church, I don’t know, if don’t know if splitting is the right word, falling apart is more like what I see. You’re going to get over half of them are going to come and say, ‘we’re hungry for God, lay a hand on us, get us filled with the Holy Ghost’. Some of them are going to say, ‘we haven’t even heard about this Holy Ghost thing.’ And you’re going to raise them up as your army the Lord says.” … as prophesied by Dr. Mark Barclay in 2005.

Proverbs 12:25 AMPC
Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, but an encouraging word makes it glad.

Proverbs 12:25 KJV
Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.

Heaviness: anxiety, care,
fear, sorrow, dread
ascribed to the sea as agitated

Jer 49:23 AMPC
Concerning and against Damascus [in Syria]: Hamath and Arpad are confounded and put to shame, for they have heard bad news; they are fainthearted and wasting away; there is trouble and anxiety [like] on a [storm-tossed] sea which cannot rest.

In the heart: inner man, mind, will, (emotions) knowledge, thinking, reflection, memory. Inclination, resolution, determination, conscience
-as the seat of appetites, emotions and passions, and courage.

Makes it stoop: to depress, prostrate, now down, crouch, fall down flat, to sink down, do reverence, worship, prostrate in homage to royalty or God.

• *This stance should be reserved for worshipping God alone – not anxiety
The antidote?

1 Peter 5:6-10 AMPC
Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you,
7 Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
8 Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.
9 Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset—rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world.
10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing and favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you.

Acts 3:19 AMPC
So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord;

Anxiety, care, worry, fear, fretting and dread are all sin. It takes faith not to yield to them. We are going to need to use our faith in this area like never before. This is what we prayed towards this morning.

1 Tim 2:1-4
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Prayed…

  • King of Glory we welcome You this morning. There is no other God like You. Blessed be the name of the Lord. Blessed be the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Oh hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Ha! Ha! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! In Your presence is fullness of joy, joy everlasting! Ha! Ha! Ha!
  • Oh, we lift up our nation this morning Father God. We just ask You to have Your way, have Your way. We lift up our Prime Minister and his office, the federal, provincial, and municipal governments. Lord we lift up our mayors and city council men and women. We lift up our judges, the lawmakers, our supreme court. We lift up the army, our police forces, and the border guards. Father grant unto them Your wisdom and discernment for the times in which we are living. Ears to hear the instructions of the Lord and a humble heart to obey, we ask this in the name of Jesus. Oh, they are there for the good of the land and the people. The plans of men coming to naught, but the plans and the will of God are being seen in this land and amongst this people. We thank You Father. We come against every foul plan of the enemy. Every covert, demonic activity—we declare, “Exposure, exposure of hidden things, hidden agendas, in the name of Jesus.” Oh, they’re no longer getting away with it. They’re being found out. Oh, Father put Your people in position and those without ears remove them. We cover Canada under the blood of Jesus. Angels surrounding our borders. Oh, we say, “COVID-19 is cut off at the root.” It’s not flourishing in our schools. The blood prevails. The blood preserves. COVID has no place, in the name of Jesus. Shrivel up and die right now! Ha! Ha! The blood over every school that’s opening. The blood over every workplace. The blood over every hospital and nursing home. The blood prevails! The blood preserves!
  • The blood over the harvest. The blood over the labourers. The blood speaks a better word. It speaks for the lost, broken, and dying. It speaks life, abundant life in Christ. Light comes and darkness is dispelled. The Word comes, the Word comes—it runs swiftly throughout the nations of the earth. Confusion, deception and lies cut off at the root. Oh, ears to hear. Ear to hear—men and women are lifting up their ear and hearing the Word of God—the gospel of Jesus is changing their lives.
  • We lift up President Trump and his office right now, in the name of Jesus. Angels on assignment to protect and minister to him and his family. We say, “Every sword of man that would rise against him is cut off, in the name of Jesus.” The Lord’s will be done in the United States. The blood, the blood, the blood, the blood of Jesus over that nation. Oh, wisdom for President Trump—ordered steps, ears to hear the instructions of the Lord—swift to obey.
  • Oh, we thank You for the nation of Israel. The glory of God is being seen in that nation. The glory of God. The power of God. The acts of God. Angels encamped about Her borders. Wisdom and discernment, and the fear of the Lord be upon the government. The blood preserves the labourers as they minister the Word. We thank You Father for granting unto them the open doors. Life comes to them—to the harvest—through the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We thank You Father. We thank You Father. Ha! Ha! Thank You Lord.

El Roi – (God Sees Me)—Who are you seeing?

• “front and centre” – at the forefront; in or into the most important position; prominent; of the greatest importance.

Psalm 33:13-15 (TPT) – 13–15 The Lord looks over us from where He rules in heaven. Gazing into every heart from His lofty dwelling place, He observes all the peoples of the earth. The Creator of our hearts considers and examines everything we do.

• When we take our eyes (our faith, confidence, trust, and expectation) off Jesus as our sole source, we can find ourselves being snared by Satan, our flesh, or the world—we lose out on the good God has prepared for us.

You can read this entire passage – 2 Chronicles 16:1-10 (MSG) – 7-9 Just after that, Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said, “Because you went for help to the king of Aram and didn’t ask GOD for help, you’ve lost a victory over the army of the king of Aram. Didn’t the Ethiopians and Libyans come against you with superior forces, completely outclassing you with their chariots and cavalry? But you asked GOD for help and He gave you the victory. GOD is always on the alert, constantly on the lookout for people who are totally committed to Him. You were foolish to go for human help when you could have had God’s help. Now you’re in trouble—one round of war after another.” 10 At that, Asa lost his temper. Angry, he put Hanani in the stocks. At the same time Asa started abusing some of the people.

• Asa took his eyes off (did not continue to trust and have confidence in) the One Who had proven Himself faithful in the past, and he sought help from an outside source and this greatly displeased God and this brought calamity into his life and that of Judah.

Matthew 14:22-31 (TPT) – 22 As soon as the people were fed, Jesus told His disciples to get into their boat and to go to the other side of the lake while He stayed behind to dismiss the people. 23 After the crowds dispersed, Jesus went up into the hills to pray. And as night fell He was there praying alone with God. 24 But the disciples, who were now in the middle of the lake, ran into trouble, for their boat was tossed about by the high winds and heavy seas. 25 At about four o’clock in the morning, Jesus came to them, walking on the waves! 26 When the disciples saw Him walking on top of the water, they were terrified and screamed, “A ghost!” 27 Then Jesus said, “Be brave and don’t be afraid. I am here!” 28 Peter shouted out, “Lord, if it’s really You, then have me join You on the water!” 29 “Come and join Me,” Jesus replied. So Peter stepped out onto the water and began to walk toward Jesus. 30 But when he realized how high the waves were, he became frightened and started to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he cried out. 31 Jesus immediately stretched out His hand and lifted him up and said, “What little faith you have! Why would you let doubt win?”

Psalm 121(MSG) – 1–2 I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from GOD, Who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.

Psalm 91:14-15 (AMPC) – 14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never]. 15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honour him.

We’re praying that Believers will stop looking to the world and themselves as their source and answer to their problems—that there will be a turning back in trust, and full confidence that God Who loves them is faithful in all situations. El Roi (God sees me) will, as we cry out to Him, meet us where we are at for He is no respecter of persons—Psalm 37:25 (ESV) – I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread.

Prayed…

  • Oh, I thank You Father. I Thank You Father. When we see those mountains before us, we can be confident in this—You are our help. We are overcomers through Christ. Father forgive our doubt and our unbelief. Holy Spirit we ask You to strengthen us in our inner man. Fortify us to stand in those life situations we find ourselves, confident, trusting in the One we serve, Jesus Christ. Oh, we come against and cut off every lie of Satan that we are alone and forsaken. El Roi (God sees me) He is Faithful and He is True—we are not forsaken. We have confident expectation in the One in Whom we trust. We cut off that spirit of pride and self, in the name of Jesus. We cut off those thoughts that would lift and exalt themselves over the Word of God. Yes, we come boldly before the throne of grace and we receive our strength and help in times of trouble. Ha! Ha! Oh we are a people who speak like our God and we say to every situation and circumstance, “Peace be still,” in the name of Jesus. Yes! Ha! Ha! Oh, we know our God. The Church is come to that place of knowing their God the One in Whom they will trust. No more tossing too and fro between two opinions. We stand on the Word which is our sure foundation—that when everything else moves we don’t because God is our Rock, we hide ourselves in Him. We bind that spirit of fear and intimidation, in the name of Jesus. Strength to weak knees and feeble hearts, in the name of Jesus. We say to the Church this morning, “Be not afraid or discouraged, do not loose heart, do not faint in well doing for you shall reap if you don’t faint.” Ha! Ha! Sow, sow! Ha! Ha! Sow, sow! Father we declare Your Word and Your Word alone.
  • It says in 1 Corinthians 15:57-58 (TPT) – 57 But we thank God for giving us the victory as conquerors through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. 58 So now, beloved ones, stand firm and secure. Live your lives with an unshakable confidence. We know that we prosper and excel in every season by serving the Lord, because we are assured that our union with the Lord makes our labour productive with fruit that endures.
  • 1 John 5:4-5 (TPT) – 4 You see, every child of God overcomes the world, for our faith is the victorious power that triumphs over the world. 5 So who are the world conquerors, defeating its power? Those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
  • I thank You Father we are a people who are learning, growing, and understanding the magnificence of Your love for us. We set our eyes on You today. Thank You Father.

Praying towards the Supernatural Increase for Eagles Nest Families and Ministry

Jerry Savelle’s prophetic word for 2020 (excerpts taken from his January newsletter)

This is the year for you to step into a new revelation and manifestation of supernatural increase. I’m believing that 2020 will be like no other year for you and your family. Not just financially, but in every area of your life. God spoke a prophetic word to me saying, “In 2020, I will open a new door, and you will experience supernatural increase beyond anything you have experienced before.”

I want to encourage you to catch a vision of supernatural increase that far exceeds your previous experiences.

Supernatural increase means that God is going to do something that is impossible for you to do in the natural. God doesn’t want you depending on your own strength, ability, education, or skills. He wants to do far beyond what you are capable of in the natural.

Don’t talk yourself out of increase based on your natural ability. God is no respecter of persons; the same grace and favor that’s on me is available to you.

Is it God’s will for you to experience increase? Psalms 115:12-15 (NKJV) reveals, “The Lord has been mindful of us; He will bless us… May the Lord give you increase more and more, you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord.”

Blessed means to be empowered to prosper, increase, multiply, excel, and rise above what keeps others down. That blessing is on you. You should fully expect to prosper, increase, multiply, and rise above!

God has more in store for you! Your best days are ahead. Your greatest increase is still to come. In fact, He’s the God of increase.

God wants you to experience more and more supernatural increase in every area of your life. He is moving in 2020 to do exceedingly more than you have seen before. The prophetic word He gave me said, “In 2020 I will open a new door.”

This year God is thinking of new ways to bring supernatural increase!

When I first started learning the spiritual principles of supernatural increase, God revealed to me keys to experiencing it in my life. Even though this has been God’s plan from the beginning, it doesn’t happen automatically.

You have a part to play in receiving it!

I discovered two vital keys in the Book of Job that have positioned me for increase time and time again. These same principles will work in your life also!

Job chapter thirty-six reveals, “If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasures” (Job 36:11). When you are faithful to serve and to obey God, it opens the door to miraculous manifestations of His greatness.

Obeying and serving God faithfully are the vital keys to experiencing supernatural increase.

There are some preachers telling us that faithfully serving God and faithfully obeying God is not necessary today because that’s under the law and we are under grace. They say that obeying and serving is being “performance based.”

Then on 8/04/20 the prophetic word was “You are not alone for I am by your side. You need not fear you only need to abide. Abide in Me and hold fast to My word, I’ll fulfill My promises and your prayers shall be heard. I’m still your source and I will not let you fail. So keep your head up high for your adversary shall not prevail. Rejoice in your God and do not cease. It’s still your year for Supernatural Increase!

I also read the book One Word from God Can Change Your Life, “Chapter 8 Better than Miracles”, by Jerry Savelle, based on Ps 115:14

1 Tim 2:1-4
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Psalm 65:11

Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
11 You crown the year with Your bounty and goodness, and the tracks of Your [chariot wheels] drip with fatness.

New Living Translation
You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance.

Douay-Rheims Bible
Thou shalt bless the crown of the year of thy goodness: and thy fields shall be filled with plenty.

GOD’S WORD® Translation
You crown the year with your goodness, and richness overflows wherever you are.

World English Bible
You crown the year with your bounty. Your carts overflow with abundance.

Jubilee Bible 2000
Thou dost crown the year with thy goodness, and thy clouds distill fatness.

International Standard Version
You crown the year with your goodness; your footsteps drop prosperity behind them.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
You crown the year with Your goodness; Your ways overflow with plenty.

The word crown means: to encircle (for attack or protection).
This year is encircled from attack and for protection.

Numbers 6:22-27
And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: 23 “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:
24 “The LORD bless you and keep you;
25 The LORD make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
26 The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.” ’
27 “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”

Spirit Filled Life Bible notes:
Verse 24- to bless means an increase in prosperity because Yahweh will keep the worshipper from harm
– making His face shine on you results in peace and the provision of all things necessary for the well-being of the recipient.

We are praying for ENCA and all other Schools, Teachers and families today.

Prayed…

  • Oh, we thank You Father. We welcome You Lord. We welcome You Holy Spirit. You are present in our midst and we honour You and we worship You and extol You. For there is no other God—there is no other god that can stand before You. We humble ourselves before You this morning and revere You. We fix our gaze upon Your face Lord God. You are our strength. Yes, You are showing Yourself strong on our behalf. Oh, the glory of the Lord is being seen as the waters cover the sea. Ha! Ha!
  • Have Your way in our nation Lord God. We say, “Jesus Christ reigns from sea to sea.” We bind ever work of darkness that has been assigned against this nation and its people. Ha! Ha! You are defeated, in the name of Jesus. We are declaring, according to God’s Word, how our leaders shall be: Proverbs 16:12-13 (TPT). Father I thank You our government and those in leadership have an ear to hear what the Spirit of God is saying unto them—for the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Grant them Your wisdom—wisdom that will dismantle the wisdom of men and dismantling the plans of men. Father have Your way in this nation. We declare, “Canada is a righteous nation under God.” We declare that, “Our future Prime Minister walks with God, he has a heart after God, he’s a humble man.” Oh, a humble nation. A humble nation that seeks after the ways of God. Father I thank You every hidden thing, every ungodly, unrighteous thing is being exposed, in the name of Jesus. No place to hide anymore, hidden agendas exposed. We bind the spirit of deception—every covert and hidden thing of Satan against this nation and against the nations of the earth—we declare those things are exposed, uprooted, null and void in their effect. The Word of God running swiftly, penetrating dark places.
  • Everything hidden is being exposed to the light and darkness is being removed. Men are seeing the truth of the Word and it’s bringing deliverance, salvation. It’s breaking chains, it’s opening prison doors to the hearts of men. It’s causing blind eyes to see and deaf ears to hear. The Word of God is bringing restoration and healing. The Word is lifting burdens and destroying yokes. The Word of God is breaking the chains of addiction. The Word of God is exposing the intent of men’s hearts and it’s leading them to salvation. Move Holy Spirit. Move across the nations of the earth. Move in glory and in power. Everything that can be shaken is being shaken. Only the truth is left standing and Jesus Christ is the Truth. Men are finding the Way of Truth that leads to eternal life. Oh, labourers are rallying—coming together as a force against the gates of hell. And they shall prevail as they go forth. Signs, wonders, and miracles shall follow the Word as they preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. They are in formation. They are on a mission—oh they are plucking men out of the fire—they are flowing in the gifts of the Spirit.
  • Father we lift up Israel this morning and we pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We plead the blood over Her borders and Her streets, and we say, “No weapon formed against Her shall prosper.” Father grant unto Her leadership wisdom, discernment, and understanding of the times. We bind the spirit of fear and intimidation, in the name of Jesus. Strength, guidance and provision to the Messianic Jews. Open doors to their government. Open doors to their neighbours, even those who have shunned them in the past. We say there’s a surrendering taking place. There’s a softening taking place in men’s hearts because the Spirit is moving in their midst bring life into dry bones. Thank You Father.

Definition of “hold fast” – remain tightly secure; continue to believe in or adhere to an idea or principle; securely gripping; stuck fast; stuck very firmly to; cannot be removed.

Hebrews 10:23 (AMPC) – So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word.

Hebrews 4:14 (AMPC) – Inasmuch then as we have a great High Priest Who has [already] ascended and passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession [of faith in Him].

Hebrews 3:14 (AMP) – For we [believers] have become partakers of Christ [sharing in all that the Messiah has for us], if only we hold firm our newborn confidence [which originally led us to Him] until the end,

1 Corinthians 15:1-3 (TPT) -1 Dear friends, let me give you clearly the heart of the gospel that I’ve preached to you—the good news that you have heartily received and on which you stand. 2 For it is through the revelation of the gospel that you are being saved, if you fasten your life firmly to the message I’ve taught you, unless you have believed in vain.

Those that hold fast to God and His Word will be those who walk as overcomers, those that triumph in Christ, and those that are victorious conquerors to the end. Finishing their race and hearing God’s commendation: Matthew 25:21 (NKJV) – His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

Philippians 3:12-16 (MSG) – 12-14 I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back. 15-16 So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision—you’ll see it yet! Now that we’re on the right track, let’s stay on it.

We’re not losing heart, we’re not letting go, we’re holding fast. As Christ is our perfect example we also set our faces like flint and are not moved by people, situations and circumstances, trials or tribulations. We will not be put to shame if we put our complete trust in God – Isaiah 50:7 (Berean) Because the Lord GOD helps Me, I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set My face like flint, and I know that I will not be put to shame.

They say it’s not how you start a race; it’s how you finish and we all desire to finish and finish well – “Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward” (Exodus 14:15).

We are praying for God’s people to hold fast and not let go of that which they have heard and received from God’s Word and His Holy Spirit. And with faith and patience inherit the promises of God for their health, finances, children etc. – Revelation 3:5 (AMPC) – Thus shall he who conquers (is victorious) be clad in white garments, and I will not erase or blot out his name from the Book of Life; I will acknowledge him [as Mine] and I will confess his name openly before My Father and before His angels.

Prayed…

  • Father we thank You for Your Word. We thank You every promise in Your Word is “yes” and we agree “amen.” Hebrews 4:14-16 (TPT). Father this morning we are choosing to hold fast to what You accomplished and won for us on the cross. Father we pray strength for those that are weak, tired in their bodies and in their minds—Holy Spirit strengthen the them. Strengthen them right now, in the name of Jesus. Let Your peace rest upon them mightily—that the fruit of joy may arise in their spirit and affect their body and their soul. Nothing is impossible for You Father; nothing is impossible for You. We declare this morning that, “The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead is quickening mortal bodies this morning.” We curse every sickness at the root, it’s already been defeated on the cross. Life! We speak life through the blood, through the name of Jesus Christ. We speak life to dead situations. Father our trust is in You. Ha! Ha! You’re the Healer! You’re the Provider! You’re our Banner! You’re God with us! We are not forsaken! We are not forsaken, Your eyes are upon Your people. Let You will be done in our lives Lord God as it is in heaven—perfection, victory, joy, peace, strength. Strength to those weak knees. Strength to tired bodies and minds, in the name of Jesus. Ha! Ha! Resurrection life! Resurrection life! Resurrection life! Ha! Ha! Come forth! Come forth! Resurrection life! We bind the spirit of death, in the name of Jesus! The blood! The blood over every situation! The blood prevails! The blood saves! The blood heals! The blood delivers. And we hold up the name of Jesus Christ over every circumstance and it must bow to that name. We speak to every mountain and we say, “Be brought down, in the name of Jesus! Be removed! Oh Spirit of the Living God we ask You, in the name of Jesus, to show Yourself strong on our behalf that the name of Jesus Christ be glorified. There will be no doubt that this was God and no one else will get the glory. So, we declare this morning as the Church, “We are remaining tightly secure; we are continuing to believe; we are not going to be moved from Your Word.” Father Your Word is our sure foundation on which we stand, and we thank You for it, in Jesus’ name.

The following was taught and prayed through during our 9:30 a.m. family prayer time with Sue DeGroot

As He passed along, He noticed a man blind from his birth. His disciples asked Him, Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should be born blind? Jesus answered, It was not that this man or his parents sinned, but he was born blind in order that the workings of God should be manifested (displayed and illustrated) in him. We must work the works of Him Who sent Me and be busy with His business while it is daylight; night is coming on, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the world’s Light. When He had said this, He spat on the ground and made clay (mud) with His saliva, and He spread it [as ointment] on the man’s eyes. And He said to him, Go, wash in the Pool of Siloam–which means Sent. So he went and washed, and came back seeing. –John 9:1-7 AMPC

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; – I Peter 2:9 NKJV

Before receiving Jesus as our Lord and Saviour we are spiritually and mentally blind (2Cor 4:4). However, once we receive Jesus we are transferred from darkness into light and a transformation starts to take place, which becomes evident to all (the workings of God should be manifested (displayed and illustrated) in him-John 9). We prayed towards the opening of blind eyes/minds in our family members, leading to salvation.

Luke 4:18
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

Ps 146:8a
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind;

Is 29:18 AMPC
And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and out of obscurity and gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind shall see.

Is 35:5
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.

Is 42:7, 16, 18
To open blind eyes,
To bring out prisoners from the prison,
Those who sit in darkness from the prison house.

16 I will bring the blind by a way they did not know;
I will lead them in paths they have not known.
I will make darkness light before them,
And crooked places straight.
These things I will do for them,
And not forsake them.

18 “Hear, you deaf;
And look, you blind, that you may see.
Is 43:8

Is 56:10-(without knowledge)
His watchmen are blind,
They are all ignorant;
They are all dumb dogs,
They cannot bark;
Sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

Luke 24:31
Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight.

Acts 26:18
to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified[a] by faith in Me.’

Jer 31:16-17 AMPC
Thus says the Lord: Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for your work shall be rewarded, says the Lord; and [your children] shall return from the enemy’s land.
17 And there is hope for your future, says the Lord; your children shall come back to their own country.

The following was taught and prayed through during our 6 a.m. prayer time with Terry Nyenhuis

1 Tim 2:1-4
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

The following prophecy was delivered by Kenneth Copeland on September 8, 2017:
Together, We’ll Bring It to Pass!

“Most people are saying, ‘I can’t do it. It’s not working. It just seems like it doesn’t work out for me.’ The more you say that, the more the unbelief and fear compounds and compounds and compounds. But, you see, all of that is very weak. So, when you begin to turn to the strength of The WORD, when you begin to confess My WORD,” saith The LORD, “when you begin to say, ‘I believe I receive,’ it sounds like it is so simple. But My words are with power and authority. The devil’s words are full of fear, and they are weak and empty. And when you come against him, he folds up and he runs in fear! So, begin to say, ‘I can, I will and I have it,’ and you’ll see results,” saith The LORD. “Don’t ever give up! Stand! And if it seems as though it isn’t working, inquire of Me. I’ll encourage you. I’ll coach you. I’ll train you. I’ll be your Coach. I’ll be your Trainer,” saith the Holy Spirit. “That’s My job. That’s what I’m supposed to do. And if you’ll give Me a chance, I’ll coach you all the way to victory. I’ll coach you all the way to glory. I’ll teach and train you. And I will cause you to be well, and I’ll cause you to be strong in your mind, and I’ II cause you to be rich financially. You just stay with Me and, together, we’ll bring it to pass,” saith The LORD of grace.

The Holy Spirit through Brother Kenneth Hagin.
The GIANTS

The time is coming and now is when men and women Blood-washed, Blood bought, will come to realize and know, the fullness of the covenant that belongs to them. Will come to know the authority, the rights, and the privileges. And there shall arise a company in these last days that many people will call Supermen. Because they’ll operate in the realm of the supernatural, in a way that has not been done heretofore. Many have touched the edge, gotten in just to the edge of it occasionally. But the time is coming when men will walk in it, walk in, their covenant, walk in the supernatural, and it will be just as natural to walk in the supernatural, as it is for a bird to fly through the air, or a fish to swim through the water. Hearts must be prepared, minds must be renewed. Spirits must come into subjection to the Father of Spirits. Speak it out, and by you speaking it out you create it. Hallelujah! The revelation is coming, they’ll be able to teach men in the realm of the Spirit in this area, where they can operate in that area. Like men in the mental realm will teach people the multiplication table, so spiritual things, will become real, as natural, as mental and material things! And it shall be said in these Last Days as it was said before, that there are GIANTS in the land. These GIANTS will not be giants of physical stature, but giants of spiritual stature.”

On the way to work I was praying and said:
I put myself in remembrance of the Blood.
I have an EXPECTATION in the BLOOD!

Then I heard this hymn:
On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

Refrain:
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

We are praying towards what was shared.

The following was taught and prayed through during our 6 a.m. prayer time with Joanne Summers

Malachi 3:2-3 (AMPC) – 2 But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap; 3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord offerings in righteousness.

Definition of refinement: the process of removing impurities or unwanted elements from a substance; a high defined distinction; the quality or state of being refined.

  • In a refiners fire there is the removal of impurities such as gases, drosses, or liquid slags.
  • Fuller’s soap was an alkali made from plant ashes which was also used to clean and full new cloth – the word “full” is from the Anglo-Saxon fullian, meaning “to whiten.” (to full is to press or scour cloth in a mill. Verb/scour: clean or brighten the surface of (something) by rubbing it hard, typically with an abrasive or detergent. Noun/the state of being scoured, especially by swift-flowing water.)

Refiner’s fire and fuller’s soap – for the Believer there is two types of fire: fire of affliction and the other is the fire of intentional self-denial. The furnace of affliction in the family of God is always for refinement, never for destruction. The Word and the Spirit – will act to ‘clean, bleach, wet and beat’ our spiritual fibers to a consistent and desirable condition.

Hebrews 12:5-10 (TPT) – 5 And have you forgotten His encouraging words spoken to you as His children? He said, “My child, don’t underestimate the value of the discipline and training of the Lord God, or get depressed when He has to correct you. 6 For the Lord’s training of your life is the evidence of His faithful love. And when He draws you to Himself, it proves you are his delightful child.” 7 Fully embrace God’s correction as part of your training, for He is doing what any loving father does for His children. For who has ever heard of a child who never had to be corrected? 8 We all should welcome God’s discipline as the validation of authentic sonship. For if we have never once endured His correction it only proves we are strangers and not sons. 9 And isn’t it true that we respect our earthly fathers even though they corrected and disciplined us? Then we should demonstrate an even greater respect for God, our spiritual Father, as we submit to His life-giving discipline.10 Our parents corrected us for the short time of our childhood as it seemed good to them. But God corrects us throughout our lives for our own good, giving us an invitation to share His holiness…

Refinement is for purification – A call to holiness—this will only come when we allow the Holy Spirit to work in our lives and we are separated from the things of this world (from sin and our fleshly desires): Leviticus 20:26 (NKJV) – And you shall be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine.

1 Corinthians 9:27 (AMPC) – But [like a boxer] I buffet my body [handle it roughly, discipline it by hardships] and subdue it, for fear that after proclaiming to others the Gospel and things pertaining to it, I myself should become unfit [not stand the test, be unapproved and rejected as a counterfeit].

James 1:2-4 (TPT) – 2 My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! 3 For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. 4 And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.

We are praying for the Body of Christ to submit to the Refiner’s fire – conformity to the image of our Lord Jesus Christ – Romans 8:29-30 (MSG) – 29-30 God knew what He was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love Him along the same lines as the life of His Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity He restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in Him. After God made that decision of what His children should be like, He followed it up by calling people by name. After He called them by name, He set them on a solid basis with Himself. And then, after getting them established, He stayed with them to the end, gloriously completing what He had begun.

* * *

Also read – surprising response to trouble:

James 1:2–4 (TPT – 2 My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! 3 For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. 4 And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.

Romans 5:3-6 (TPT) – 3 But that’s not all! Even in times of trouble we have a joyful confidence, knowing that our pressures will develop in us patient endurance. 4 And patient endurance will refine our character, and proven character leads us back to hope. 5 And this hope is not a disappointing fantasy, because we can now experience the endless love of God cascading into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who lives in us! 6 For when the time was right, the Anointed One came and died to demonstrate his love for sinners who were entirely helpless, weak, and powerless to save themselves.)

Prayed…

  • Father we declare Your Word—this who we are in Christ – 15 For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, 16 to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? 17 For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God’s word, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ – 2 Corinthians 2:15-17 (ESV). Father we are the aroma of Christ. We’re the ones that carry the glory of God, that the world may see it and know You through us. We yield our members to You this morning. We ask You Holy Spirit to pray through us the perfect will of God for this day. We acknowledge You as Lord over our lives—Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Lord. We thank You Holy Spirit, we welcome You into our lives today to lead us and guide us, to strengthen us, to impart Your wisdom and direction. Be honoured in our lives today Father.
  • Oh, these are vital day, vital days. Vital day for the Church, this nation and for the nations of the earth. Vital days—critical days! But we know Father You are the One with wisdom that will dismantle the wisdom of men. Grant unto our spiritual and civil leaders Your wisdom to make godly decisions that are for the good of this nation, the people, and the Church. We bind that spirit of pride—self-seeking, self-righteous. Oh God You would say unto those that lead our nation, those in authority – 10 Listen to Me, all you rebel-kings and all you upstart judges of the earth. Learn your lesson while there’s still time. 11 Serve and worship the awe-inspiring God. Recognize his greatness and bow before Him, trembling with reverence in His presence. 12 Fall face down before Him and kiss the Son before His anger is roused against you. Remember that His wrath can be quickly kindled! But many blessings are waiting for all who turn aside to hide themselves in Him (Psalm 2:10-12 (TPT). Oh, Father that they will heed the warning of Your Word and be quick to obey. Open doors for the labours—they come with Your Words that will penetrate their hearts.
  • Oh, we thank You for Your Word Father—Your Word is a sword. For we have the living Word of God, which is full of energy, and it pierces more sharply than a two-edged sword. It will even penetrate to the very core of our being where soul and spirit, bone and marrow meet! It interprets and reveals the true thoughts and secret motives of our hearts Hebrews 4:12 (TPT). Oh, we thank You Father God that Your Word is penetrating hearts this morning—it’s running swiftly. Oh no where to hide—there’s no where to hide. Oh Your Word, we’re standing on Your Word this morning it does not come back void—it’s not coming back void, but shall accomplish that which we please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto we send it. There’s no more hiding Lord we declare Your Word over all those blinded by the enemy. Those that thing they can hide from You. We send forth the light of Your Word—penetrating the dark areas of their lives that are holding them bound. Psalm 139:1-7 (TPT) – 1 Lord, You know everything there is to know about them. 2 You perceive every movement of their heart and soul, and You understand their every thought before it even enters their mind. 3–4 You are so intimately aware of them, Lord. You read their heart like an open book and You know all the words they about to speak before they even start a sentence! You know every step they will take before their journey even began. 5 You’ve gone into their future to prepare the way, and in kindness You follow behind them to spare them from the harm of their past….. 7 Where could they go from Your Spirit? Where could they run and hide from Your face? (personalized)
  • Father I thank You that as they come to that place of salvation, that place of life, Lord God they’ll be no turning back. Surrendered lives yielded to Your Spirit and Your Word. They flee the very presence of evil. Ha! Ha! They make Your presence their dwelling place. One thing have I desired of the Lord, and that will I seek after, to dwell in Your presence and to seek after Your face—that is the cry of their heart. Thank You Father for those yet to come. Thank You for the labourers that are diligent, steadfast, bold, and immovable, as they go about their Father’s business.
  • We plead the blood of Jesus over this nation—we say, “Let God arise, and His enemies be scattered!” Let Canada arise in righteousness and the fear of the God.
  • Lord we cover Israel under the blood of Jesus this morning. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Grant unto Her government the wisdom and discernment they need. Ear to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to them. Not the plans of men, but the plans and strategies of heaven. Supernatural intervention—visit Your people. Angelic visitation, supernatural protection and provision. Days of awakening! No longer blinded by the lies of the enemy. An awakening to the One Who is the Truth, the Way, and the Life. Strength to the labourers. Every need met according to Your riches in glory. We thank You Father.

Ephesians 3:14-21(TPT) – 14 So I kneel humbly in awe before the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, 15 the perfect Father of every father and child in heaven and on the earth. 16 And I pray that He would unveil within you the unlimited riches of His glory and favour until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with His divine might and explosive power. 17 Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of His love will become the very source and root of your life. 18–19 Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is His love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding—this extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God! 20 Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you. 21 Now we offer up to God all the glorious praise that rises from every church in every generation through Jesus Christ—and all that will yet be manifest through time and eternity. Amen!

Ephesians 2:4-10 (AMPC) – 4 But God—so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and intense love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead (slain) by [our own] shortcomings and trespasses, He made us alive together in fellowship and in union with Christ; [He gave us the very life of Christ Himself, the same new life with which He quickened Him, for] it is by grace (His favour and mercy which you did not deserve) that you are saved delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation). 6 And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One). 7 He did this that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace (His unmerited favour) in [His] kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favour) that you are saved delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God; 9 Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law’s demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself. 10 For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].

We are praying that the Church (would come into a deeper knowledge of the love of God) and those that are yet lost—blinded by the god of this world—to come into a revelation that though they are yet sinners Jesus Christ as already paid the full price for their sins—He died so they could be saved (receive eternal life).

Prayed…

  • Thank You Father. Oh, we thank You Father. Thank You for Your love. Thank You for sending Your Son to die for us, to suffer for us—He counted it joy to do this that we might be saved and brought back into fellowship with You. We thank You Father. Your love is our security, it holds us in place. We thank You for that love, for that stability. That love we cannot be separated from—nothing can separate us from the love of God – Romans 8:31-39 (TPT) – 31 So, what does all this mean? If God has determined to stand with us, tell me, who then could ever stand against us? 32 For God has proved his love by giving us his greatest treasure, the gift of his Son. And since God freely offered him up as the sacrifice for us all, he certainly won’t withhold from us anything else he has to give. 33 Who then would dare to accuse those whom God has chosen in love to be his? God himself is the judge who has issued his final verdict over them—“Not guilty!” 34 Who then is left to condemn us? Certainly not Jesus, the Anointed One! For he gave his life for us, and even more than that, he has conquered death and is now risen, exalted, and enthroned by God at his right hand. So how could he possibly condemn us since he is continually praying for our triumph? 35 Who could ever separate us from the endless love of God’s Anointed One? Absolutely no one! For nothing in the universe has the power to diminish his love toward us. Troubles, pressures, and problems are unable to come between us and heaven’s love. What about persecutions, deprivations, dangers, and death threats? No, for they are all impotent to hinder omnipotent love, 36 even though it is written: All day long we face death threats for your sake, God. We are considered to be nothing more than sheep to be slaughtered! 37 Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything! 38 So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God’s love. I’m convinced that his love will triumph over death, life’s troubles, fallen angels, or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken his love. 39 There is no power above us or beneath us—no power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God’s passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One!
  • We glorify the name of Jesus. Father we pray that those that are yet to come will realize the magnitude of this love. Father I thank You that eyes are being opened this morning. Those that are blind to the truth of Your matchless love, Your unchanging love. Revelation comes of this truth. The Church is realizing the greatness of this love and they’re walking in the fullness of it. The lost are seeing the light of the revelation of Your love for them that while they where yet sinners Jesus died for them, You suffered for then. You gave them life, abundant life, salvation, eternal life in Christ. We thank You Father. We thank You Lord for counting it joy that we might be brought back into fellowship with the Father.
