The following was taught and prayed through during our 6 a.m. prayer time with Pastor Ric Borozny

1 Tim 2:1-4

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Malachi 3:10-11
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the LORD of hosts,
“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.
11 “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes,
So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground,
Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,”
Says the LORD of hosts;

2 Chron 20:11; 15; 20b-23
here they are, rewarding us by coming to throw us out of Your possession which You have given us to inherit.
15 And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the LORD to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
20 … Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” 21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying:
“Praise the LORD,
For His mercy endures forever.”
22 Now when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. 23 For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.

Joel 2:11
The LORD gives voice before His army,
For His camp is very great;
For strong is the One who executes His word.
For the day of the LORD is great and very terrible;
Who can endure it?

Joshua 2:11
And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of you, for the LORD your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath.

John 2:11
This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.

We are praying for the pending court case.

  • Father we just honour You this morning. We magnify the name of Jesus Christ. There is no other name like Yours. We glory in Your presence. We welcome You here Holy Spirit. Oh, we just honour You. Great and mighty is our God. Ha! Jesus You are the Head over the Body and we are seated in heavenly places. Let God arise and His enemies be scattered. Oh, we declare this morning, “That the enemies of God’s people are being scattered in the name of Jesus.”
  • I cover this congregation under the blood of Jesus. Your Word says, in Isaiah – 14 You will be established in righteousness. Oppression—be far from them! Fear—be far from them! Yes, terror will not come near you, nor will you be afraid. 15 If anyone dares to stir up strife against you, it is not from Me! Those who challenge you will go down in defeat. 16 See, I am the one who created the craftsman who fans the coals into a fire and forges a weapon fit for its purpose, and I am the One who created the destroyer to destroy. 17 But I promise you, no weapon meant to hurt you will succeed, and you will refute every accusing word spoken against you in – Isaiah 54:14-17 (TPT). Father we declare this over the House of Eagles Nest this morning. There’s power in Your Word and we stand on it. Father we thank You that You’re our vindicator! We’re not standing in the arm of our flesh, but we’re standing in the power of the Spirit. Great shall be our deliverance! Ha! Ha! Father I thank You for granting unto Pastor Ric and the leadership of this House the wisdom they need—it’s the wisdom of God that will dismantle the wisdom of men. Ha! Ha! No! No! No! No, it goes nowhere, it accomplishes nothing! The blood of Jesus over this House—that standard has been set! Oh, we thank You Lord God! We thank You Lord God. Oh, when the enemy comes in like a flood the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him (Isaiah 59:19). All praise and all glory belong to You Father. These are days of increase, days of overflow! Yes, major increase! This House is marked for glory! This House is marked for prosperity! This House is marked to display the glory of God! We thank You Father.
  • We lift up our government this morning, from our Prime Minister’s office to our city councillors, supreme court and intelligence agencies. We lift up our armed forces, police forces, and our border guards. Father have Your way in each and every one of these that have been set in office for the good of the people and the land. Grant them Your wisdom Lord, Your discernment for the days we are living in. We come against every force of darkness that would arise against this nation and this people. We uproot and say that, “Every hex, spell, curse, incantation that has been spoke over Your Body, over this nation and its people come to nothing in the name of Jesus—it bears no fruit. A realigning, a reshuffling, a re-positioning in our government Lord for Your plans, for Your purposes for this nation. It’s for good and not for evil, to give us a future and a hope. Over Canada and the United States where there’s lies and corruption and every evil work being perpetrated by those in authority, we declare, “Exposure!” this morning. We say, “Truth comes and it’s exposing lies, light comes and it’s exposing darkness in men’s hearts!” Father we do not look to a man to deliver us, but we look to You for You are the Great Deliverer! Those who serve You put their confident expectation in You!
  • Father we lift up Israel this morning. We pray for their protection Lord God. We cover them under the blood of Jesus. Lord order the steps of those that lead this nation. No confusion! There’s no confusion in their government. They have the wisdom of God, the discernment of God. Oh, unity in the government! Oh, angels on assignment—ministering angels, protecting angels! We thank You Jesus.
  • Father we lift up the harvest and the labourers this morning. And we cover each and every individual under the blood. Holy Spirit move on the hearts of those that are yet to come into the kingdom. Move on the hearts of those that have fallen by the wayside. Father grant unto them ears to hear and eyes to see and a willingness Lord God to surrender their lives to You. Oh, a hungering and thirsting after righteousness—a desire for truth that comes from Your Word. We pull down the spirit of pride and we come against that spirit of deception—that spirit that lies in the name of Jesus. We say, truth comes, and it dispels every lie in the name of Jesus. Strength to the labourers Lord God—fill their mouths with Your Word because it’s Your Word that brings life. It’s Your Word that dispels lies. We thank You Lord God—a great harvest! We declare, “There’s a great harvest coming into the glory of God!”

Dictionary meaning of discouragement: a loss of confidence or enthusiasm; dispiritedness. Bible Dictionary – 8713 says discouragement is: A sense of unhappiness arising from a loss of confidence in one’s own abilities, in the reliability of God or in the power of the gospel.

Discouragement is dissatisfaction with the past, distaste for the present, and distrust of the future. It is ingratitude for the blessings of yesterday, indifference to the opportunities of today, and insecurity regarding strength for tomorrow. It is unawareness of the presence of beauty, unconcern for the needs of our fellowman, and unbelief in the promises of old. It is impatience with time, immaturity of thought, and impoliteness to God. William Ward.

Jeremiah 20:7 (AMPC) – [But Jeremiah said] O Lord, You have persuaded and deceived me, and I was persuaded and deceived; You are stronger than I am and You have prevailed. I am a laughingstock all the day; everyone mocks me.

1. Be honest – tell God (respectfully) how you feel. Psalm 139:1-2 (TPT) – Lord, you know everything there is to know about me. 2 You perceive every movement of my heart and soul, and you understand my every thought before it even enters my mind.

Jeremiah 20:9 (AMPC) – If I say, I will not make mention of [the Lord] or speak any more in His name, in my mind and heart it is as if there were a burning fire shut up in my bones. And I am weary of enduring and holding it in; I cannot [contain it any longer].

2. Be obedient – keep doing what you’ve been called to do. 1 Samuel 15:22 (ESV) – ….Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams.

Jeremiah 20:11 (AMPC) – But the Lord is with me as a mighty and terrible One; therefore my persecutors will stumble, and they will not overcome [me]. They will be utterly put to shame, for they will not deal wisely or prosper [in their schemes]; their eternal dishonour will never be forgotten.

3. Be watchful – know that the Lord is with you. Isaiah 41:10 (TPT) – Do not yield to fear, for I am always near. Never turn your gaze from Me, for I am your faithful God. I will infuse you with My strength and help you in every situation. I will hold you firmly with My victorious right hand.’

Jeremiah 20:13 (AMPC) – Sing to the Lord! Praise the Lord! For He has delivered the life of the poor and needy from the hands of evildoers.

4. Be worshipful – praise God with your whole heart during every situation. Jeremiah 33:11 (AMPC) – the [sound of the] voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the [song-filled] voice of those who say, “Give praise and thanks to the Lord of hosts, For the Lord is good; For His [steadfast] lovingkindness (mercy) endures forever”; and of those who bring a thank offering into the house of the Lord. For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were at first,’ says the Lord.

• Be honest – tell God how you feel.
• Be obedient – keep doing what you’ve been called to do.
• Be watchful – know that the Lord is with you.
• Be worshipful – praise God with your whole heart.

We are praying for those who are feeling discouraged. Isaiah 40:29 (VOICE) – But those who trust in the Eternal One will regain their strength. They will soar on wings as eagles. They will run—never winded, never weary. They will walk—never tired, never faint.

Prayed…

  • Oh, we thank You Father. Father we lift up all those this morning that are discouraged. They grow weary in well doing. They’ve taken their eyes off You. Oh, You are the Great Deliverer Father! You are the glory and the lifter of their heads and we thank You. Oh, we come against every lying spirit in the name of Jesus. We come against that spirit of discouragement, anxiety, worry and we curse you at the root in the name of Jesus. Ha! Ha! Holy Spirit we ask You to fill these individuals afresh this morning. We come against that spirit that would lead people off track—that spirit of deception. Oh, we cover those ears this morning that have listened to the lies—we cover them with the blood of Jesus. We say, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you – Isaiah 60:1 (TPT). Arise! Strength to the weary Lord God. Courage and strength this morning! You have not left them Father. You have not forsaken them. Oh, that they would remember that You love them with an everlasting love—that You have a future and a hope for them. Oh peace! We speak peace—shalom over these individuals Lord God. Let the joy of the Lord rise within them and strengthen them to stand. Father You are the Author and Finisher of their faith.
  • Romans 8:35, 38-39 (TPT) – 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…..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! Amen!

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.

Excerpt from Faith to Faith by Kenneth Copeland
… WE CAN OPEN THAT DOOR! Jesus Himself has given us the keys.
…God has a key ring full of keys that will unlock any situation. He has the keys that open the doors for you spiritually and physically, financially and emotionally. No matter how hard the devil tries to trap you, if you’ll get hold of the right key, you can find your way out.

God’s Word is full of keys of kingdom principles–keys to bind the devil’s operations and keys to loose yourself from his snares. God has a key that will unravel any knot that the devil can tie. He also has a key that will lock up the devil’s operation so tightly that he won’t be able to move.

Remember this: There’s no situation so dark and so cleverly designed by the forces of darkness that there is not a kingdom key that will unlock it with kingdom power.

There is an answer to your situation. So keep digging for it. If you’ve been digging in the Word of God in one spot and haven’t found your answer, then look at another chapter, a different verse. Keep digging until you find the key. Keep knocking at every door until you find the one that opens.”

I prayed mostly in tongues for the doors that we “keep on knocking on” and will see open here at Eagles Nest.

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

The Lord put it on my heart to lift up Eagles Nest Ministries and all the ministries connected to us – Dr. Barclay, Dr. Kaseman and AFCM, The Brakes, Pastor Jonathon and Tonya, etc.

These are ministries that are faithful, who do not compromise the Truth; they stand for righteousness.

We are in the last days and it’s important we cover them and their ministries with the Blood,

Isaiah 54:17 AMPC
But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.

Psalm 118:6-7 AMPC
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
7 The Lord is on my side and takes my part, He is among those who help me; therefore shall I see my desire established upon those who hate me.

God is a Covenant keeping God

Psalm 27:1-3 AMPC
The Lord is my Light and my Salvation—whom shall I fear or dread? The Lord is the Refuge and Stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, [even then] in this will I be confident.
Psalm 91 AMPC
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!
3 For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
4 [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.
8 Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place,
10 There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent.
11 For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service].
12 They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot.
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 honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.

Eph 6:10-20 AMPC
In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].
11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.
12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.
13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].
14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,
15 And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.
16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].
17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.
18 Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).
19 And [pray] also for me, that [freedom of] utterance may be given me, that I may open my mouth to proclaim boldly the mystery of the good news (the Gospel),
20 For which I am an ambassador in a coupling chain [in prison. Pray] that I may declare it boldly and courageously, as I ought to do.

Excerpt from Sparkling Gems 2 by Rick Renner

I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
— 1 Corinthians 3:6,7

As an apostle called to the city of Corinth, Paul was responsible for starting the church in that city. However, he also served as their first pastor until God raised up another pastor to take his place. This replacement was a well-respected, highly educated man from Alexandria in Egypt named Apollos — and soon after Paul’s departure, he became the senior pastor of the Corinthian church. History tells us that Apollos was a gifted orator who was renowned for his eloquence.

In Paul’s absence, the Corinthian believers naturally began to compare the different speaking styles of Paul and Apollos. Some who had been in the church from the beginning and were extremely affectionate toward Paul apparently didn’t like the style of the new pastor. There were others in the church who loved Apollos and asserted that his preaching was superior to Paul’s. Yet the message Paul and Apollos preached was the same — they just had different styles.

When Paul heard of divisions forming in the church of Corinth over the issue of his and Apollos’ different styles of ministry he wrote to them and said, “I have planted, Apollos watered…” (1 Corinthians 3:6). Let’s take a closer look at the Greek in this statement to see exactly what Paul meant.

The word “planted” in this verse is translated from the Greek word phuteuo, which is a form of phuton, the Greek word for a plant, and it simply refers to the act of planting a plant. By using this word, Paul was metaphorically describing his role in Corinth. He was a planter. His task was to penetrate the darkness of the city and plant a church there. There is no doubt that this city had some of the toughest spiritual ground he had ever encountered. It was surely one of the most difficult places to minister in the ancient world.

Like a neglected garden overrun with pests and weeds, Corinth was infested with demonic powers. In order to plant the Gospel in people’s hearts and firmly establish the Church in that tough environment, he had to press forward and till the ground with the power of God; then he had to get on his hands and knees and pull the weeds. This was hard work! Yet for one and a half years, Paul poured his life into this pioneering job. When he finally left Corinth to pursue his apostolic call in another city, the Corinthian church had not only been planted — it was deeply rooted and producing good fruit!

Paul described his role in Corinth as a planter; however, he was fully aware where his responsibility ended and another equally important responsibility began. That is why he continued in First Corinthians 3:6, “I have planted, Apollos watered.…”

The word “watered” here is from the Greek word potidzo, which most often means to water or to irrigate. It is the very word that would have been used to depict a farmer watering his garden to provide nourishment to his plants so they could grow. It can also be translated to IMBIBE, which in this context would convey the act of a field becoming SOAKED or SATURATED IN WATER.

By describing Apollos’ role in Corinth with the Greek word potidzo, Paul actually gave Apollos a great compliment. It is as if Paul said, “Apollos didn’t just water you; he SATURATED you….” In other words, Paul acknowledged what a wonderful, vitally important job Apollos played in the Corinthian church! Paul had pulled the weeds, chased away the pests, planted the seed, and established the new growth of the young plant. Apollos then nurtured that plant, watering it regularly with the Word of God and thus contributing equally to the great increase that happened in that church. The roles of both ministers were absolutely vital. One was not better than the other; rather, each played a significant role in the spiritual development of that church.

Paul continued in First Corinthians 3:6 by saying, “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.”

This word “increase” is the Greek word auxano, which means to cause to grow, to cause to increase, or to cause to become enlarged. By using this word, Paul was teaching us that we are always dependent upon God to provide growth and increase — even if we do everything right as we plant and water our crop. Or to put it another way: We can carry out our different roles of planting and watering, but only God can provide the sunshine and weather that allows it to grow. If God doesn’t intervene and provide His part, all of our planting and watering will be in vain. Therefore, as we carry out our roles as effectively and efficiently as we can, we must always be conscious of the fact that we’re not responsible for growth and success. If growth comes, ultimately it is God who gives the increase.”

We have been SATURATED here at Eagles Nest by the Word that continually comes to us. We are praying that we take that Word and receive it, and give it out, and believe God for the SUPERNATURAL INCREASE to come.

  • Father we pray for the nation of Canada – the federal, provincial, regional and local governments, the judiciary and legal forces.
  • You said Your people would bring healing for the nations and we prophesy that in Jesus name. Everything that is hidden to be made known. Everything that is hidden to be made known. The truth shall be made known. The truth shall be made know – exposure. Exposure, exposure!
  • If there is going to be a spring election, You still have Your hand on Canada. The Church of Canada shall have our finest days. We thank You. You make a way where there seems to be no way. Why do the nations rage and the people plot a vain thing?
  • The kings of the earth set themselves and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His anointed saying ‘Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us.’ He who sits in the heavens shall laugh, the Lord shall hold them in derision. (Psalm 2:1-4) The Lord’s will be done.
  • We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and their election next month. We trust You Father as we pray for them not only will we prosper but peace be within their walls, prosperity within their palaces. I thank You Father for the support of the nations tat stand and support of other nations that stand and support Israel financially.
  • We declare in that election the Lord’s will be done.
  • You men and women will sit in the Cabinet. You are opening doors that no man can close with the Messianic congregations. And pastors and rabbis have favour with men and with God
  • Shift, shift time Father. I thank You Father it is going to be house cleaning. Thank You Lord.

John 4:35,38
Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!
38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.”

Mark 16:15-20
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” 19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.

Matt 9:35-38
Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

1 Chron 12:32
f the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their command;

Joel 2:23-29
Be glad then, you children of Zion,
And rejoice in the LORD your God;
For He has given you the former rain faithfully,
And He will cause the rain to come down for you—
The former rain,
And the latter rain in the first month.
24 The threshing floors shall be full of wheat,
And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.
25 “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,
My great army which I sent among you.
26 You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,
And praise the name of the LORD your God,
Who has dealt wondrously with you;
And My people shall never be put to shame.
27 Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel:
I am the LORD your God
And there is no other.
My people shall never be put to shame.
28 “And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
We are praying for the end time harvest in Canada and Niagara. And we are praying for the labourers.

  • Thank You Jesus. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Father. Father we are here this morning by divine appointment. We have business that concerns You Father—oh things that are on Your heart. We surrender to Your Spirit this morning. We yield ourselves to pray Your desire and You will in the earth.
  • Father Your heart is for the salvation of people. Lord You shed Your blood on Calvary’s cross—You died for the sins of the world—You opened the way for all men to come to salvation—to have restored fellowship with the heavenly Father. “For God expressed His love for the world in this way: He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not face everlasting destruction, but will have everlasting life.”
  • Father we stand in the gap this morning for all those Lord God who have not yet come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Oh, we plead the blood of Jesus over the harvest this morning. The blood is speaking a better word this morning—a word of salvation; a word of deliverance; a word of restoration. We come against every curse, every hex, every spell—all incantations that have been spoken (against the Church, our families, our nation, the harvest) and we curse them at the root and say, “You die and produce nothing, in the name of Jesus.” We curse at the root generational curse, in the name of Jesus. Holy Spirit we cry out to You to move in a mighty way across the earth, touching the hearts of men. We declare there’s an awakening in their hearts for their need of a Saviour! Father we will minister Your Word wherever You send us. “…..I solemnly instruct you to 2 proclaim the Word of God and stand upon it no matter what! Rise to the occasion and preach when it is convenient and when it is not. Preach in the full expression of the Holy Spirit —with wisdom and patience as you instruct and teach the people” (2 Timothy 4:1b-2 (TPT). We thank You Father God for granting unto us the wisdom we need, the understanding we need, the discernment we need, and the compassion we need to reach the lost. We pray for the harvest to have open ears and open eyes, in the name of Jesus. That they will be open to the Truth. Father we come against the spirit of pride, arrogance, self-centeredness, wilful disobedience, and rebellion. We curse them at their root, in the name of Jesus. Father order steps of individuals and families to the right Church; to pastors that preach the Word of God uncompromised. That churches will embrace, in the love of God, those coming in from the highways and biways. Lord we pray for conviction—convict their hearts this morning. Father, that they will not believe fables and myths, but they will receive the Word of God, which is Truth, which brings life. The Word that will show them the way that leads to eternal life. Thank You Father for empowering Your Church this morning. That Your people would rise up Father God empowered by the Holy Ghost, to be unapologetic in our prayers; to be bold and fearless with courage demanding a response; unwavering Father; passionate and heartfelt prayers that avail much. Father we hear You—the call to prayer, and we Your people respond, “Here we are Lord God, fill our mouths with Your Words. Give us Your heart.” We lift up our families; we lift up the churches across the nation of Canada; we lift up our government and those in authority. Father we ask You to move as never before. Let Your will be done in the earth as You desire. Forgive us Father where we have walked in fear. We bind that spirit, in the name of Jesus. We speak peace—shalom in the hearts of Your people. Father we are no warring in our own strength, but we’re warring in the power and authority of the Holy Spirit. Order our steps Lord. Your Word say that the steps of the righteous man are ordered of God. We don’t lean on our own understanding, but in all our ways we acknowledge You, and You will direct our paths.
  • We cover the spiritual leaders under the blood of Jesus. Father we pray for strength for their spirit, their soul, and their body. A fresh infilling and anointing. As they look into Your Word we pray for greater revelation. Humble hearts that seek Your face and Your ways. Father meet their needs according to Your riches in glory—personal and for the work of the ministry. We thank You Father for Your faithfulness to those who have put their trust in You. Let Your name Lord God be exalted in our midst and we thank You for hearing and answering our prayers in Jesus’ name.

Isaiah 56:7 (TPT) – I will welcome you into My holy mountain and make you joyful in My house of prayer. I will accept every sacrifice and offering that you place on My altar, for My house of worship will be known as a house of prayer for all people.

(Billheimer 1982, in Jacobs 2009: 215) – The church holds the balance of power in world affairs … Even now, in this present throbbing moment, by means of Her prayer power and the extent to which She uses it, the praying Church is actually deciding the course of world events.

(Olukoya 2013a) – There is a raging battle going on day and night between two opposing forces. You may not believe it. But whether you believe it or not, you are involved in that battle anyway. This battle is going on between negative and positive powers, evil and good, the real thing and the counterfeit, light and darkness, right and wrong. Even if you do not like to talk about wars and bloodshed or violence, you have no option when it comes to spiritual wars because you are already involved. (Dr. Daniel Olukoya is a Nigerian pastor and the General Overseer of the Mountain of Fires and Miracles Ministry (MFMM).

1 Timothy 2:1 (TPT) – Most of all, I’m writing to encourage you to pray with gratitude to God. Pray for all men with all forms of prayers and requests as you intercede with intense passion.

Colossians 1:9 (TPT) – Since we first heard about you, we’ve kept you always in our prayers that you would receive the perfect knowledge of God’s pleasure over your lives, making you reservoirs of every kind of wisdom and spiritual understanding.

We live in a world that hates us more and more, but we are still called to pray – Mathew 5:44 (TPT) – However, I say to you, love your enemy, bless the one who curses you, do something wonderful for the one who hates you, and respond to the very ones who persecute you by praying for them. Matthew 5:44-45 (VOICE) – But I tell you this: love your enemies. Pray for those who torment you and persecute you—45 in so doing, you become children of your Father in heaven. He, after all, loves each of us—good and evil, kind and cruel. He causes the sun to rise and shine on evil and good alike. He causes the rain to water the fields of the righteous and the fields of the sinner.

Philippians 4:6 (TPT) – Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell Him every detail of your life.

Matthew 26:41 (TPT) – Keep alert and pray that you’ll be spared from this time of testing. You should have learned by now that your spirit is eager enough, but your humanity is weak.”

Violent prayer coupled with violent faith gives you uncommon breakthroughs … It is adamant prayer; stubborn prayer; enough-is-enough prayer; unapologetic prayer, that is, prayers you pray without regret; bold prayer, that is, fearless with courage to demand a response; unwavering prayer; steadfast prayer. It has just one goal: ELIMINATION OF THE ENEMY. (Olukoya 2013a)

We must recognize that we have been seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. We have been give all authority and have been endued with the power that comes from the Holy Spirit. James 5:16b (TPT) – …for tremendous power is released through the passionate, heartfelt prayer of a godly believer! 1 John 5:14 (TPT) – Since we have this confidence, we can also have great boldness before Him, for if we present any request agreeable to His will, He will hear us. ARISE CHURCH AND ANSWER THE CALL TO PRAYER!

We are calling the Church of the Living God to prayer this morning. The nation, our cities, our families, the world needs us—to pray; to lift our voices to heaven and ask God to intervene in the affairs of men that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Prayed…

Father, this morning we surrender to Your will—and we answer the call to prayer. We ask You Holy Spirit to move on our hearts—that compassion, mercy, and love for humanity—for the lost, will arise within us. Awaken us to the vital need to pray because prayer changes things. Praying for our families; praying for our cities; praying for our provinces; praying for our nation and its people; and the nations of the earth. Help us Holy Spirit! Romans 8:26 (TPT) – And in a similar way, the Holy Spirit takes hold of us in our human frailty to empower us in our weakness. For example, at times we don’t even know how to pray, or know the best things to ask for. But the Holy Spirit rises up within us to super-intercede on our behalf, pleading to God with emotional sighs too deep for words.

Personal prayer:

Lord, I accept Your gracious Word—and accept my assignment to pray. Father as Paul declared: “Pray always. Pray in the Spirit. Pray about everything in every way you know how! And keeping all this in mind, pray on behalf of God’s people. Keep on praying feverishly and be on the lookout until evil has been stayed” Ephesians 6:18 (VOICE). In humble faith I do now take my seat in the heavenly place in Christ Jesus at Your right hand. Teach me how to fulfill this sacred ministry, how to exercise the authority which You have entrusted me, so that in me Your purpose of the ages may be fulfilled. Amen

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

I declared Psalm 23 and Psalm 91 over our families and over Eagles Nest.

Love is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense. Love joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong. Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best for others. Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up. Love never stops loving. It extends beyond the gift of prophecy, which eventually fades away. It is more enduring than tongues, which will one day fall silent. Love remains long after words of knowledge are forgotten…Until then, there are three things that remain: faith, hope, and love—yet love surpasses them all. So above all else, let love be the beautiful prize for which you run.
1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬8‭, ‬13 TPT

As Pastor has been teaching on perfecting our love walk in 2021, this Scripture came to me. I like how The Passion Translation puts it, especially verse 13, it’s the prize we run for. I heard the Lord say as we continue to perfect our love walk, it will impact our family members for His glory bringing about salvation, restoration, healing – emotionally and physically.

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.

Excerpt from “Faith Worthy of the Hall of Faith” by Rick Renner

“So much is happening in the world, and this is really a time for all of us to keep our eyes on Jesus and to stay in a place, or position, of faith. Today I want to speak to you about holding on to your faith for whatever you have been praying for and believing to come to pass in your life.

Hebrews 10:23 says, “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised).”

Dreams are powerful, but they usually seem impossible at first. However, those who dare to do the impossible are the ones who eventually see the impossible come to pass.
There are myriad examples in the Bible of individuals who had a dream. For instance, consider the dream God gave Abraham — called the father of our faith — regarding a new land and a new people. When God first spoke to Abraham about the son He would give him, Abraham and his wife had long been infertile and unable to conceive a child. The thought of having a baby probably seemed like an unattainable fantasy to them. They could have asked themselves, Is this really the plan of God for our lives, or is this a hallucination?

God also promised Abraham a new land but didn’t tell him where it was located. In their efforts to find that land, Abraham and Sarah were stricken with colossal challenges, problematic circumstances, and horrible internal family problems. First, Abraham’s father died. Then they lost their nephew, Lot, to Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham also took Hagar as a second wife, producing a son that didn’t belong to Sarah, along with a great deal of jealousy and strife. In addition, Abraham and Sarah experienced a terrible famine in their promised territory that forced them to leave due to a lack of food.

Traveling to Egypt in search for food, they soon found themselves evicted from that land as well.

At any moment, it would have been so easy for Abraham and Sarah to say, “Enough is enough! Pack it up — we’re going back home to the city of Ur!” But instead of giving in to defeat and discouragement, they held tightly to the dreams God had put in their hearts and kept pursuing those dreams until they had witnessed their fulfillment.

As Hebrews 10:23 says, “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised).”

Today I want to point out the words “hold fast” in this verse. Abraham and Sarah “held fast” to their dream, and that is what you must do as well. The phrase “hold fast” is taken from the Greek word katecho, which is a compound of the two words kata and echo. The first word, kata, carries the idea of something that comes downward.

You could say the word kata carries the force of something that comes down so hard and so heavily, it is overpowering and dominating to the point of being subjugating. When this force arrives on the scene, it conquers, subdues, and immediately begins expressing its overwhelming, influencing power.

The second part of the word katecho is the word echo, which simply means I have and carries the notion of possession. This is the picture of someone who has sought and searched for one particular thing his entire life. After years of seeking and searching, he finally finds the object of his dreams. Joyfully he rushes forward to seize it and hold it tight. He wraps his arms around that object, making it his very own. Finally, he can say, “I have it! At long last it is mine!”

When kata and echo are compounded into the word katecho, it literally means to embrace something tightly. However, because of the word kata, we know that this is the image of someone who finds the object of his dreams and then holds it down — taking control of it, dominating it — even sitting on it so it doesn’t slip away!

In Hebrews 10:23, this same idea is used positively to describe sitting on your word from God and refusing to let it slip out and get away from you. This is the attitude you must have if you want to see your God-given dream come to pass. You have to wrap your arms around that word from God and never stop believing and pursuing your dream until it comes to pass. If you’ll “katecho” your dream, it won’t be able to get away from you, nor will anyone else be able to take it away from you!

The word katecho in Hebrews 10:23 could be interpreted this way: “And let us hold fast to our confession, tightly wrapping our arms around it and embracing it with all our might, rejecting all attempts of anyone who tries to steal it from us.…”

When you finally discover God’s will for your life — when His plan finally begins to awaken in your heart and you know exactly what you are to do — hold fast to that dream. Tightly embrace what God has shown you. Seize it — wrap your arms of faith around it. Hold it down, and hold it tight!

Whenever you are tempted to become discouraged, give up, and release your dream, remember Abraham and Sarah. Although it took them awhile to receive their dream of having a son — and although they had to overcome titanic hurdles along the way — they refused to let go of that dream, and they eventually saw it come to pass. In the end, they discovered that their dream was not a hallucination; it really was a word from God!

The word “waver” is taken from the Greek word aklines, which conveys the picture of something that does not bend or something that is fixed and unmoving and is therefore stable and enduring.

Interestingly, if you remove the a from the word aklines, you are left with the word klines, which pictures a person who is bowed down. With shoulders sloped and body bent over, this person is so tired that he can barely stand. Ultimately, he becomes so exhausted that he throws in the towel and gives up. In fact, the word klines is the same root in Greek for a couch or a bed. So when a person is klines, his “give-up” attitude causes him to head for the couch or bed where he lies down, stagnates, and wastes away.

Many people give up hope and quit believing because they get tired. The devil whispers in their ears and tells them, This thing you’re believing for isn’t ever going to happen! If it was going to happen, it would have happened by now! This is just a fantasy. You are wasting your time and throwing away precious years of your life. Why don’t you forget it, let it go, and move on with your life?

As long as you are energized by faith, you’ll keep moving in a forward direction. But the day you let loose of your faith and back off your position, it won’t be too long until a spiritual sadness will come over your life. Spiritually speaking, your shoulders will slope; your head will drop; and you’ll feel like someone pulled the plug on your energy level. Your eyes will drift toward the couch or bed, and soon you’ll end up completely going to bed on your faith!

Don’t let that happen to you!

What God promises, He will perform. It may take a while for that promise to come into manifestation, but eventually it will come. In the meantime, you must choose to believe that He will do what He has promised. That is the key! You must set your heart and commit your will, making an irrevocable decision to believe His Word regardless of how you feel, what you think in your natural mind, what others say, or how circumstances look.

It’s time for you to make the decision that you have too much invested to turn back now! Dig in your heels; drive down your stake; and tell the devil that you are not going to move from your position of faith! Aggressively choose to believe that what God has promised, He will always do. Once you’ve made that kind of life-changing decision, it will only be a matter of time before you’re rejoicing because of your manifestation!”

Acts 9:31 AMPC
So the church throughout the whole of Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was edified [growing in wisdom, virtue, and piety] and walking in the respect and reverential fear of the Lord and in the consolation and exhortation of the Holy Spirit, continued to increase and was multiplied.

This is us at Eagles Nest.

We prayed that we would not “let loose” of all the promises God has made to us at Eagles Nest, but “hang on tightly” to the promises until we see the manifestations that are “to all come to pass at last!”

The following was taught and prayed through during our 6 a.m. prayer time with Pastor Ric Borozny

1 Tim 2:1-4

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

We prayed for the prodigals returning to the father’s house.

Luke 15:11-24 Prodigal son
Then He said: “A certain man had two sons. 12 And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood. 13 And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living. 14 But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want. 15 Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16 And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.
17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, 19 and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.” ’
20 “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. 23 And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; 24 for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.

Prov 22:28
Do not remove the ancient landmark
Which your fathers have set.

Prov 23:10 Fields of the fatherless
Do not remove the ancient landmark,
Nor enter the fields of the fatherless;

Prov 14:14
The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways,
But a good man will be satisfied from above.

Isaiah 30:1-3
“Woe to the rebellious children,” says the LORD,
“Who take counsel, but not of Me,
And who devise plans, but not of My Spirit,
That they may add sin to sin;
2 Who walk to go down to Egypt,
And have not asked My advice,
To strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh,
And to trust in the shadow of Egypt!
3 Therefore the strength of Pharaoh
Shall be your shame,
And trust in the shadow of Egypt
Shall be your humiliation.

In the difficult times just ahead, there will be very serious repercussions for those backslidden believers who continue to live in the world and love the things thereof.

Jer 3:14
“Return, O backsliding children,” says the LORD; “for I am married to you. I will take you, one from a city and two from a family, and I will bring you to Zion.

Jer 31:17
There is hope in your future, says the LORD,
That your children shall come back to their own border.
