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

I saw like a dam wall and I could see leaks/cracks. At first, I thought it was to do with breakthroughs but then the Holy Spirit reminded me of the fable of the Dutch boy who put his finger in the leak of the dike to prevent disaster. As I sought some more, the Holy Spirit showed me there are ‘leaks/cracks’ within our families and they need to be ‘covered.’ Then the Holy Spirit reminded me that the Ark was ‘covered’ with ‘pitch’ which represents the Blood of Jesus.

We know the Blood speaks/prevails/ has life/power etc., and just as the Israelites/ Rahab applied the blood/scarlet thread and all those who were covered by it were delivered.

We are holding up the standard of the Blood over our families this day.

They overcame by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of their testimony.

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

1 Timothy 2:1-6
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. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,

Romans 13:1-5
Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. 5 Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake.

Daniel 2:20-22
Daniel answered and said:
“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
For wisdom and might are His.
21 And He changes the times and the seasons;
He removes kings and raises up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to those who have understanding.
22 He reveals deep and secret things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him.

Daniel 4:33-34
That very hour the word was fulfilled concerning Nebuchadnezzar; he was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles’ feathers and his nails like birds’ claws.
34 And at the end of the time I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever:
For His dominion is an everlasting dominion,
And His kingdom is from generation to generation.

Daniel 5:24-30
Then the fingers of the hand were sent from Him, and this writing was written.
25 “And this is the inscription that was written:
MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.
26 This is the interpretation of each word. MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; 27 TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; 28 PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.” 29 Then Belshazzar gave the command, and they clothed Daniel with purple and put a chain of gold around his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.
30 That very night Belshazzar, king of the Chaldeans, was slain.

2 Chronicles 7:14
if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

We are asking God for forgiveness, and we are praying for a godly government here in Canada.

Prayed…

  • Lord You know the end from the beginning, and we pray Your will be done. We stand in the gap for our Canadian government. We pray for a Holy Ghost, supernatural locking of what is righteous and holy. We pray for a strengthening of the body of Christ, of the Spirit, the minds and understanding.
  • We ask for forgiveness for the sins of our land – the wicked things we have allowed that are anti-Christ. We ask Father that You heal our land. And take out the wicked leaders, the unrighteous, ungodly and the sinful people and replace them with godly people.
  • Thank You for strengthening the pastors to declare your righteousness. There is a harvest to come in and we are looking to our future with great anticipation. As Canada is healed, we will bring healing to the nations.
  • No fear, no fear, no fear in Jesus’ name.
  • I thank You that this congregation is receiving Your wisdom and our hearts are open. And we understand what time it is and what to do.
  • Forgive Lord the sins that have gone against Your Word. Lord turn our nation around. Give us godly leaders who will rule this land with righteousness, according to Your Word, not against it. Your Word says that to everything there is a season a time for every purpose under heaven. It is time.
  • Those that do good are not evil. I thank You Father that this nation is going to rise up and it is our finest hour. We will bring healing to the nations.

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

At the top of the year the Lord is saying ‘Cast your cares ‘ regarding family, marriages, finances, relationships, employment, health, property/land etc. onto Him for He cares for you.

When our full trust is in the Lord and for Him to bring it to pass, we have no problem in casting our cares over to Him.

Rick Renner Teaching
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
— 1 Peter 5:7

When we were constructing a huge church facility many years ago in the Republic of Latvia — a former Soviet nation where our family once lived and worked — worry and anxiety tried so hard to control me. In fact, worry nearly broke me until I really came to understand and embrace the meaning of First Peter 5:7.

At the time, no credit was available for building churches in that nation. This meant we had to believe for all the finances to come in quickly so we could pay cash as we constructed the massive facility. Then the local authorities gave us a deadline by which the building had to be complete and occupied; otherwise, there was a possibility we could lose everything we had invested. With this kind of pressure on me, I found myself continually worrying that we wouldn’t have enough money to finish the project on time. I was constantly fighting thoughts about losing the building if we didn’t make the deadline that the government had given us.

I would lie in bed at night, rolling this way and that way, turning again and again, unable to sleep because my stomach was churning with acid and my mind was spinning with doubts, worries, fears, reservations, and concerns. My heart pounded harder and harder each day and night as anxiety reached out its demonic fingers to grab hold of my emotions and twist them into a mangled mess of panic. My wife would tell me to quit worrying and start trusting the Lord, but instead of appreciating her advice, I only got angry that she wasn’t worrying with me!

Finally one night, I got up, walked down the hallway to my study, opened my Bible, and read these words: “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5:7). I had read this verse thousands of times in my life, but that night it was as if it reached out from the pages of the Bible and grabbed hold of my attention. I read it and read it and read it again. At last, I picked up my Greek New Testament and began to dig deeper into the verse. What I discovered in that verse changed my life and set me free from worry, anxiety, fretting, and fear!

That night, I saw that the word “casting” used in First Peter 5:7 was the Greek word epiripto, a compound of the words epi and ripto. The word epi means upon, as on top of something. The word ripto means to hurl, to throw, or to cast, and it often means to violently throw or to fling something with great force.

The only other place this word epiripto is used in the New Testament is in Luke 19:35, where the Bible says, “And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus there on.” It is important to note this passage, for it correctly conveys the idea of the word epiripto, which in secular literature often pictured the flinging of a garment, bag, or excess weight off the shoulders of a traveler and onto the back of some other beast, such as a donkey, camel, or horse.

We are not designed to carry the burden of worry, fretting, and anxiety. This load is simply too much for the human body and the central nervous system to tolerate. We may be able to manage it for a while, but eventually the physical body and mind will begin to break under this type of perpetual pressure. In fact, the medical world has confirmed that the major source of sickness in the Western Hemisphere is stress and pressure. Man was simply not fashioned to carry pressures, stresses, anxieties, and worries; this is the reason his body breaks down when it undergoes these negative influences for too long.

If you are struggling with sickness or depression, your condition very possibly could be related to stress and pressure. In First Peter 5:7, it is almost as if Jesus is calling out to you and saying, “Your shoulders are not big enough to carry the burdens you’re trying to bear by yourself. This load will eventually break you — so please let ME be your beast of burden! Take that load and heave it with all your might. Fling it over onto MY back, and let ME carry it for you!” Just as Luke 19:35 says they cast their garments upon the back of the donkey, now you need to cast your burdens over on the Lord and let Him carry those burdens for you!

But exactly what problems and cares are we to throw over onto the shoulders of the Lord? The apostle Peter says we are to cast all of “our cares” upon Jesus. The word “cares” is the Greek word merimna, which means anxiety. However, in principle it described any affliction, difficulty, hardship, misfortune, trouble, or complicated circumstance that arises as a result of problems that develop in our lives. It could refer to problems that are financial, marital, job-related, family-related, business-oriented, or anything else that concerns us.

This means anything that causes you worry or anxiety — regardless of why it happened — is what you need to throw over onto the shoulders of Jesus Christ! Nothing is too big or small to talk to the Lord about, Peter says, because He “careth for you.” The word “careth” is taken from the Greek word melei, which means to be concerned; to be thoughtful; to be interested; to be aware; to notice; or to give painful and meticulous attention. Peter uses this word to assure us that Jesus really does care about us and the things that are heavy on our hearts. In fact, He gives meticulous attention to what is happening to us. He is interested in every facet of our lives.

So don’t ever let the devil tell you that your problems are too stupid, small, or insignificant to bring to Jesus. The Lord is interested in everything that concerns you!

Because of the Greek words used in First Peter 5:7, this verse carries the following idea:

“Take that heavy burden, difficulty, or challenge you are carrying — the one that has arisen due to circumstances that have created hardship and struggles in your life — and fling those worries and anxieties over onto the back of the Lord! Let Him carry them for you! The Lord is extremely interested in every facet of your life and is genuinely concerned about your welfare.”

When I saw these Greek words and perceived how deeply Jesus cared about the burdens that were on my heart, I realized I was carrying a load I didn’t have to bear by myself. Jesus was standing right at my side, longing to help me and inviting me to shift the weight from my shoulders to His shoulders. By faith, I heaved those financial cares onto the back of Jesus — and when I did, I was set free from the stress, anxiety, and pressure that had been weighing me down at that time in my life.

You don’t have to carry the whole weight of the world by yourself. Jesus loves you so much and is so deeply concerned about you and the difficulties you are facing that He calls out to you today, “Roll those burdens over on Me. Let Me carry them for you so you can be free!”

If you are lugging around worries, cares, and concerns about your family, your business, your church, or any other area of your life, why not stop right now and say, “Jesus, I’m yielding every one of these concerns to You today. I cast my burden on You, and I thank You for setting me free!”

My Prayer for Today
Lord, I thank You for what I’ve read today. I regret having carried these burdens and worries so long by myself when, in fact, You were always ready to take them from me and to carry them on my behalf. But it’s never too late to do what is right, so right now I make the decision to yield to You every one of these matters that are bothering me. Thank You for coming alongside me to take these weights from my shoulders. Because You are so loving and attentive to me, I can now go free!

I pray this in Jesus’ name!

My Confession for Today
I confess that Jesus is standing right at my side, yearning to help me and inviting me to shift the weight from my shoulders to His shoulders so I can go free! By faith I have already cast my cares onto Jesus. As a result, I am liberated from stress, anxiety, worries, pressures, and all the other things that have been bothering me!

I declare this by faith in Jesus’ name!

  • We bless You Lord. Father Your Word says that we are to give supplication, prayers, intercession and thanks for all in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is Your will and is acceptable in the sight of God. Based on Your Word we pray for the federal, provincial and regional governments this morning. Lord we pray for the people of this nation this morning. We pray for our judiciary in the Supreme Court. People in authority over us – the Prime Minster and his cabinet, the Premier and his cabinet. Thank You for godly influence. You have their hearts in Your hand. You place kings in position and You remove them.
    Thank You for godly decisions being made, godly fear in men and women sitting in federal and provincial government. You require a change of heart for that person, or we put a demand on Your throne. You have dominion from sea to sea. The best years are ahead of us. It was prophesied over this nation that we will bring healing to the nations. Thank You for healing of the nation in 2022.

  • We pray the Lord’s will be done in Ontario, Your will be done in this nation of Canada. We pray for the church in this nation, in Niagara.

You accompany the church with signs and wonders. Thank You that this year will be with signs, wonders and testimonies to the glory and power of God.
  • Thank You that the gospel of salvation is not hindered. Men and women in the pulpit are not ashamed. They preach with all boldness and speak Your Word in and out of the pulpits. You stretch out Your hand and confirm Your Word.
  • We pray for Israel and the peace of Jerusalem. You said those who love her will prosper. Peace be in her borders and prosperity in the homes. We pray for the situation with Syria and Hezbollah. Every plan and purpose You reveal to Israel through their intelligence services and through the Holy Spirit. Thank You that You are putting a plan to defend the nation. Even now angels are on the move. Thank You that Israel remains strong and has a strong leadership. A prime minster that seeks and pursues God. He will give this info the Cabinet according to the Word of God.
  • There are many Messianic Jews in that nation. Thank You for a spirit of unity in this nation. Thank You that You are raising Messianic leaders in the Knesset. This is impossible in the natural but with God it is possible.
  • We pray for divine wisdom for the US ambassador in Israel. Things he says and does are in opposition to Israel. Thank You for divine impartation, or remove him fast in Jesus’ name.

Psalm 44:1-8
We have heard with our ears, O God,
Our fathers have told us,
The deeds You did in their days,
In days of old:
2 You drove out the nations with Your hand,
But them You planted;
You afflicted the peoples, and cast them out.
3 For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword,
Nor did their own arm save them;
But it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance,
Because You favored them.
4 You are my King, O God;
Command victories for Jacob.
5 Through You we will push down our enemies;
Through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us.
6 For I will not trust in my bow,
Nor shall my sword save me.
7 But You have saved us from our enemies,
And have put to shame those who hated us.
8 In God we boast all day long,
And praise Your name forever. Selah

  • It will be God doing it (not us).

Psalm 126:1-6

When the LORD brought back the captivity of Zion,
We were like those who dream.
2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
And our tongue with singing.
Then they said among the nations,
“The LORD has done great things for them.”
3 The LORD has done great things for us,
And we are glad.
4 Bring back our captivity, O LORD,
As the streams in the South.
5 Those who sow in tears
Shall reap in joy.
6 He who continually goes forth weeping,
Bearing seed for sowing,
Shall doubtless come again [e]with rejoicing,
Bringing his sheaves with him.

  • When God moves it will be like a dream to us.

Psalm 118:25
Save now, I pray, O LORD;
O LORD, I pray, send now prosperity.

James 5: 1-4
Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. 4 Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.

God is going to bring us into possession of our land because of His favour and His good hand upon us. It’s time to reap.

Prayed…

  • Father these are the words You have given us. You showed us how we are to see things. We are not frustrated or dishonoured but we are asking for redemption. You promised us, we received it in our hearts and we are asking You for help in 2022 to bring us into the land. You will plant us by Your hand, by Your arm, by Your countenance, Your favour coming on our behalf regarding the land and building. If it involves the merge and converge with another church, then we can possess with Your vision and move forward. Beyond borders as You lead us.
  • Thank You for bring it to our land signed, sealed and delivered; refurbished, restored, providing equipment, skilled labourers, favour with city hall, whatever we need will be done by Your hand, by Your favour in our lives. We will be like those who dream. The nations will give glory to God. Your Word says that the nations will say the Lord has done great things for us in this nation.
  • Our mouths will be filled with laughter, our tongues with singing. Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice. We will reap with joy in 2022. Your Word says we will reap in joy. We shall come again with rejoicing, rejoicing bringing in the sheaves. Lord this is the year of the turnaround, it is the year of reaping.

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

And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.
Galatians 6:9 AMPC

I kept hearing this Scripture over and over and then I picked up a book I received for Christmas “It’s on its Way’ by Lisa Osteen Combs.

The following is part of her introduction:

Is there a dream you’ve been holding on to? Do you want to write a book, travel the world, start your own business, get married, have a child, or own a home? IS there a need in your life for which you’ve been praying? Is it related to your health, finances, or marriage? Have you been holding on and praying for these things so long that you’ve begun to wonder if fulfillment, healing, or restoration will ever come? My message to you is whatever you are praying about or believing God for – don’t give up on those things.

I know from personal experience how easy it is to fall into discouragement or hopelessness in the time between God’s promise and its fulfillment, but that is not God’s will for your life. I know it gets hard, but don’t you dare give up. Don’t give in to fear, doubt, or worry! Hold on and have faith in God, because your answer is on the way.

There is one truth among many I hold on to in times like this: Heaven hears me the moment I pray. Heaven has heard your prayers too. Whatever breakthrough, answer, promise, or blessing you’ve been asking God for – it is on the way. God always hears your prayers.

This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.  Hab 2:3 NLT

For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day. [Heb. 10:37, 38.] Habakkuk 2:3 AMPC

Some excerpts from Chapter 1 of the above-mentioned book:

Quote-If we wait, victory shall surely come….Victory is in your DNA

*God always hears your prayers (1Peter 3:12; 1John 5:15)
*The day you pray God dispatches the answer (Dan 10:12)
*God is watching over His Word to perform it (Jer 1:13; Is 55:11)
*There are a host of angels warring on our behalf (Ps 91:11; Heb 1:14)

Prayed…

  • We are fully convinced that the answers regarding our families are on the way and we will see the victories for it’s the appointed time.

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

The song goes, ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year.’

Wonderful synonyms – marvelous, magnificent, superb, amazing, astonishing, glorious. Over 2, 000 years ago the shepherds heard some wonderful news The Saviour had been born. Not only did they hasten to go and see Him but also their joy could not be contained and they excitedly went about and told others about the Saviour, and the message of peace and hope.

The spirit of strife, division, offense and fear are operating in some of our family members. Instead of family gatherings during this Christmas season, families are being separated, mainly because of different stands regarding Covid/Vaccination. Where is the peace, hope, and joy in our families? The thief is attempting to steal, kill and destroy family relationships.

Christmas is about the message of God’s love for all, the birth of the Saviour, the Prince of Peace. A message of peace, joy, hope, restoration.

In the following story below is the story of how enemies put their differences aside for one day – Christmas Day; they wanted to keep the Christmas spirit.

CHRISTMAS TRUCE OF 1914
The Christmas Truce occurred on and around Christmas Day 1914, when the sounds of rifles firing and shells exploding faded in a number of places along the Western Front during World War I in favor of holiday celebrations. During the unofficial ceasefire, soldiers on both sides of the conflict emerged from the trenches and shared gestures of goodwill.

Did you know? On December 7, 1914, Pope Benedict XV suggested a temporary hiatus of the war for the celebration of Christmas. The warring countries refused to create any official cease-fire, but on Christmas the soldiers in the trenches declared their own unofficial truce.

Starting on Christmas Eve, many German and British troops fighting in World War I sang Christmas carols to each other across the lines, and at certain points the Allied soldiers even heard brass bands joining the Germans in their joyous singing.

At the first light of dawn on Christmas Day, some German soldiers emerged from their trenches and approached the Allied lines across no-man’s-land, calling out “Merry Christmas” in their enemies’ native tongues. At first, the Allied soldiers feared it was a trick, but seeing the Germans unarmed they climbed out of their trenches and shook hands with the enemy soldiers. The men exchanged presents of cigarettes and plum puddings and sang carols and songs. Some Germans lit Christmas trees around their trenches, and there was even a documented case of soldiers from opposing sides playing a good-natured game of soccer.

German Lieutenant Kurt Zehmisch recalled: “How marvelously wonderful, yet how strange it was. The English officers felt the same way about it. Thus Christmas, the celebration of Love, managed to bring mortal enemies together as friends for a time.”

Some soldiers used this short-lived ceasefire for a more somber task: the retrieval of the bodies of fellow combatants who had fallen within the no-man’s land between the lines.

The so-called Christmas Truce of 1914 came only five months after the outbreak of war in Europe and was one of the last examples of the outdated notion of chivalry between enemies in warfare. It was never repeated—future attempts at holiday ceasefires were quashed by officers’ threats of disciplinary action—but it served as heartening proof, however brief, that beneath the brutal clash of weapons, the soldiers’ essential humanity endured.

During World War I, the soldiers on the Western Front did not expect to celebrate on the battlefield, but even a world war could not destroy the Christmas spirit.

  • We are binding the spirit of strife, division, offense and fear and loosing peace, joy and hope. We are declaring restoration among our families in Jesus Name.

Luke 2:8-18
Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
15 So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. 17 Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. 18 And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

Is 9:6
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 10:10
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Matt 16:19
And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth [a]will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Is 42:22
But this is a people robbed and plundered;
All of them are snared in holes,
And they are hidden in prison houses;
They are for prey, and no one delivers;
For plunder, and no one says, “Restore!”

of 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;

Psalm 102:13-18
You will arise and have mercy on Zion;
For the time to favor her,
Yes, the set time, has come.
14 For Your servants take pleasure in her stones,
And show favor to her dust.
15 So the [a]nations shall fear the name of the LORD,
And all the kings of the earth Your glory.
16 For the LORD shall build up Zion;
He shall appear in His glory.
17 He shall regard the prayer of the destitute,
And shall not despise their prayer.
18 This will be written for the generation to come,
That a people yet to be created may praise the LORD.

Psalm 75:2
“When I choose the proper time,
I will judge uprightly.

Psalm 31:15
My times are in Your hand;
Deliver me from the hand of my enemies,
And from those who persecute me.

Psalm 119:126
It is time for You to act, O LORD,
For they have regarded Your law as void.

2 Corinthians 6:2
For He says:
“In an acceptable time I have heard you,
And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

Psalm 118:25
Save now, I pray, O LORD;
O LORD, I pray, send now prosperity.

We are crying out for our land and buildings with more than enough for whatever is required to house the incoming harvest. Fully paid for, fully landscaped, fully furnished, fully decorated and fully equipped for every activity. By faith we’ve already received it.

Prayed…

  • We shall lack for no good thing and You are telling us it is time. Now is the acceptable time.
    We call that property to come home now in Jesus’ name. I thank You for raising up Cyrus’ to underwrite the cost. Send now prosperity Lord, send now prosperity. More money than we have ever had before. I thank You Father that stumbling blocks and barriers are being taken out of the way.
  • Save now Lord we pray. Send them to this house, it is a safe house, it is a Word house. I thank You Father you are sending us finances from places we have never imagined. I thank You for the equipment, the furnishings, media equipment and the skilled people to work it. I thank You Father for teachers to be multiplied in this house. I thank You Father that You are opening up to us the treasures of heaven.
  • We are a tithing house and the devourer has been rebuked for our sakes. It is our season. It is our time Lord. It’s time for You to act Lord. Father we are not telling You, You are telling us it is time in Jesus’ name. This church is a tithing house, You said to prove You. You specifically spoke to us with those scriptures and it is time for You to act.
  • Favour with God and favour with man for the right zoning and whatever we require at city hall.
  • Favour, favour, favour. I thank You Father we will always be a house where the uncompromised Word will be taught and where the gifts of the Spirit will be in operation as we yield to the Holy Spirit.
  • I thank You for signs, wonders and miracles being commonplace in our future.

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

And on their way to Bethlehem, the same star they had seen in the East suddenly reappeared! Amazed, they watched as it went ahead of them and stopped directly over the place where the child was. And when they saw the star, they were so ecstatic that they shouted and celebrated with unrestrained joy.
Matthew 2:9‭-‬10 TPT

MEANWHILE SAUL, still drawing his breath hard from threatening and murderous desire against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest And requested of him letters to the synagogues at Damascus [authorizing him], so that if he found any men or women belonging to the Way [of life as determined by faith in Jesus Christ], he might bring them bound [with chains] to Jerusalem. Now as he traveled on, he came near to Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him, And he fell to the ground. Then he heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me [harassing, troubling, and molesting Me]? And Saul said, Who are You, Lord? And He said, I am Jesus, Whom you are persecuting. It is dangerous and it will turn out badly for you to keep kicking against the goad [to offer vain and perilous resistance]. Trembling and astonished he asked, Lord, what do You desire me to do? The Lord said to him, But arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do. The men who were accompanying him were unable to speak [for terror], hearing the voice but seeing no one. Then Saul got up from the ground, but though his eyes were opened, he could see nothing; so they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. And he was unable to see for three days, and he neither ate nor drank [anything]. Now there was in Damascus a disciple named Ananias. The Lord said to him in a vision, Ananias. And he answered, Here am I, Lord. And the Lord said to him, Get up and go to the street called Straight and ask at the house of Judas for a man of Tarsus named Saul, for behold, he is praying [there]. And he has seen in a vision a man named Ananias enter and lay his hands on him so that he might regain his sight. But Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard many people tell about this man, especially how much evil and what great suffering he has brought on Your saints at Jerusalem; Now he is here and has authority from the high priests to put in chains all who call upon Your name. But the Lord said to him, Go, for this man is a chosen instrument of Mine to bear My name before the Gentiles and kings and the descendants of Israel; For I will make clear to him how much he will be afflicted and must endure and suffer for My name’s sake. So Ananias left and went into the house. And he laid his hands on Saul and said, Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, Who appeared to you along the way by which you came here, has sent me that you may recover your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit. And instantly something like scales fell from [Saul’s] eyes, and he recovered his sight. Then he arose and was baptized, And after he took some food, he was strengthened. For several days [afterward] he remained with the disciples at Damascus. And immediately in the synagogues he proclaimed Jesus, saying, He is the Son of God! And all who heard him were amazed and said, Is not this the very man who harassed and overthrew and destroyed in Jerusalem those who called upon this Name? And he has come here for the express purpose of arresting them and bringing them in chains before the chief priests. But Saul increased all the more in strength, and continued to confound and put to confusion the Jews who lived in Damascus by comparing and examining evidence and proving that Jesus is the Christ (the Messiah).
Acts 9:1‭-‬22 AMPC

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great Light; those who dwelt in the land of intense darkness and the shadow of death, upon them has the Light shined. [Isa. 42:6; Matt. 4:15, 16.] Isaiah 9:2 AMPC

The people who were sitting (living) in [spiritual] darkness have seen a great Light, And for those who were sitting (living) in the land and shadow of [spiritual and moral] death, Upon them a Light has dawned.” From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life], for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Matthew 4:16‭-‬17 AMP

I the Lord have called You [the Messiah] for a righteous purpose and in righteousness; I will take You by the hand and will keep You; I will give You for a covenant to the people [Israel], for a light to the nations [Gentiles], To open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon, and those who sit in darkness from the prison. Matt. 12:18-21
Isaiah 42:6‭-‬7 AMPC

The One who said “Let there be light” (Gen 1:3) came to bring light into our hearts and lives so that “whoever follows [Him] will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 NIV

The Light appeared to Saul on the path that he was on, Jesus met him right where he was at. We are continuing to pray for our family members who are walking in the path of darkness to see the Light, for the scales to be removed from their eyes, to fully turnaround and be on fire for God.

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

Praise and worship in the midst of a spiritual attack is the highest expression of faith. It’s telling God that, instead of giving into fear, you are going to trust and praise Him. As you praise Him, He will turn things around!

GLORY MANIFESTED – And it came to pass when the priests came out of the Most Holy Place (for all the priests who were present had sanctified themselves, without keeping to their divisions), 12 and the Levites who were the singers, all those of Asaph and Heman and Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, stood at the east end of the altar, clothed in white linen, having cymbals, stringed instruments and harps, and with them one hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets— 13 indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying:
“For He is good,
For His mercy endures forever,”
that the house, the house of the LORD, was filled with a cloud, 14 so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the LORD filled the house of God. 2 Chronicles 5:11-14 NKJV

AMBUSHES – 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. 2 Chron 20:21-22 NKJV

CHAINS LOOSED – But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed. Acts 16:25‭-‬26 NKJV

SONGS OF DELIVERANCE– You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah
Psalm 32:7 NKJV

GARMENT OF PRAISE – The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;… Isaiah 61:3 NKJV

  • The depth of your praise determines the magnitude of your breakthrough.
  • The anointing lifts burdens and destroys yokes.
  • Our praise is anointed and is making an impact on our families.

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.

Prayed…

  • We pray for our federal, provincial regional and municipal governments, and our court system. The anti-Christ agenda can’t go forward since we have the believers’ authority and dominion authority. God can take the hearts of kings and turn it in a moment. Your Word says You have dominion from sea to sea.
  • Many are the plans of men but Your Word stands. This anti-Christ agenda trying to sweep across this nation shall not prosper. The Lord’s will be done.
  • Thank You Father for the turnaround in our federal government and our supreme court. Your Word says that righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. I thank You that a voice of righteousness is rising in our nation and it will exalt our nation.
  • Canada is in for its finest hour. Father Your Word says, when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice, but when a wicked man rules the people groan. We ask for open doors that no man can close as a voice of authority. Your good hand is upon this nation of Canada. When the wicked are removed, the meek shall inherit the land.
  • We lift up Israel as they are on military alert. We pray for the peace if Jerusalem, may they prosper who love You. Peace be within their walls, prosperity within their palaces. Lord You know what’s going on. We pray for strong borders, strong military and a strong unity in government. I thank You Father Your good hand is upon Your people Israel. I thank You for accurate intelligence and wisdom. I thank You Father for supernatural intervention of intelligence and military maneuvers to save the nation of Israel Lord so that they complete their purpose here on the earth.
  • We speak to the dry bones and lift up the harvest in Canada and Niagara. In Genesis 41, Pharaoh recognized the Spirit of God in Joseph. As churches begin to rise up and yield to the Holy Spirit in us flowing out to the lost and dying around us, people will see God moving and come running to their demonstrations of the glory. Like the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Joel 2 we are in that day for that outpouring and harvest. We speak to those dry bones and we say live, in Jesus’ name.
  • I thank You Father for the networking of churches with like faith and one vision for this harvest. We pray for the willing labourers to bring in this end time harvest. Thank You Father for putting into our hands whatever we need to bring that harvest in. We thank You and receive it in Jesus’ name.

Psalm 37:1-23; 28-29; 34

Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in the LORD, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself also in the LORD,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.
7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret—it only causes harm.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off;
But those who wait on the LORD,
They shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,
But it shall be no more.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth,
And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked plots against the just,
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
13 The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn the sword
And have bent their bow,
To cast down the poor and needy,
To slay those who are of upright conduct.
15 Their sword shall enter their own heart,
And their bows shall be broken.
16 A little that a righteous man has
Is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
But the LORD upholds the righteous.
18 The LORD knows the days of the upright,
And their inheritance shall be forever.
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time,
And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish;
And the enemies of the LORD,
Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish.
Into smoke they shall vanish away.
21 The wicked borrows and does not repay,
But the righteous shows mercy and gives.
22 For those blessed by Him shall inherit the earth,
But those cursed by Him shall be cut off.
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD,
And He delights in his way.
28 For the LORD loves justice,
And does not forsake His saints;
They are preserved forever,
But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land,
And dwell in it forever.
Wait on the LORD,
And keep His way,
And He shall exalt you to inherit the land;
When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.

We are praying towards our inheritance coming into our hands in 2022.

Prayed…

  • It is time to physically possess our property and buildings. Whatever angels have to move on our behalf, whatever needs to be done, we have more than enough to do our part to receive this end time harvest.
