Prayer Summary for March 21, 2019

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

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.

Jeremiah 2:11-13 (AMPC) – 11 Has a nation [ever] changed its gods, even though they are not gods? But My people have changed their Glory [God] for that which does not profit. 12 Be astonished and appalled, O heavens, at this; be shocked and shrivel up with horror, says the Lord [at the behaviour of the people]. 13 For My people have committed two evils: they have forsaken Me, the Fountain of living waters, and they have hewn for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns which cannot hold water.

Isaiah 55:1-2 (AMPC) – 1 Wait and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing]. 2 Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness [the profuseness of spiritual joy].

• Blaise Pascal said that we all have a “God-shaped void” in our lives. All men are hungry and thirsty; the problem is that we try to fill that emptiness, that hunger, with things other than the righteousness of God. Some of you reading this message are empty; you have not been satisfied. You are trying to fill that “God-shaped void” in your life with all kinds of things, but you are left empty, unsatisfied. There is an incredible message of hope for you if you are searching for the answer.

Philippians 3:7-9 (AMPC) – 7 But whatever former things I had that might have been gains to me, I have come to consider as [one combined] loss for Christ’s sake. 8 Yes, furthermore, I count everything as loss compared to the possession of the priceless privilege (the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth, and supreme advantage) of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord and of progressively becoming more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him [of perceiving and recognizing and understanding Him more fully and clearly]. For His sake I have lost everything and consider it all to be mere rubbish (refuse, dregs), in order that I may win (gain) Christ (the Anointed One), 9 and that I may [actually] be found and known as in Him, not having any [self-achieved] righteousness that can be called my own, based on my obedience to the Law’s demands (ritualistic uprightness and supposed right standing with God thus acquired), but possessing that [genuine righteousness] which comes through faith in Christ (the Anointed One), the [truly] right standing with God, which comes from God by [saving] faith.

We need the help of the Holy Spirit to open up (or reveal) the truth of the Scriptures to us—there is no revelation without the Spirit. That is one of the reasons why He was sent – John 14:26 (AMPC) But the Comforter (Counsellor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you. “The way of the Spirit is the way of the Word.” The Spirit speaks through and in conjunction with the Word. He opens our mind to certain principles, implications, and unique applications of His truth.

Father stir within our hearts a desire for Your Word—all things God, as revealed by and through Your Spirit. For truly our deepest satisfaction will only be found in You – 1 Corinthians 2:2 (TPT) – For while I was with you I was determined to be consumed with one topic—Jesus, the crucified Messiah. Jeremiah 15:16 (VOICE) – When I discovered Your words, I ate them up: they were my great joy and my heart’s delight. I am Yours, and I bear the name of the Eternal God, Commander of heavenly armies.

  • In this nation we declare an exposure to the lies in Jesus’ name. Father thank You that Your will is being done in the elections here in Canada. It is righteousness that exalts a nation.
  • We pray for Your spiritual authority in this nation. Your Word says that ‘if My people would humble themselves, 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.’ [2 Chron 7:14] Thank You that this nation of Canada is being healed in Jesus’ name.

We pray for those who are enemies with Israel, we pray that their hearts be turned to love the Jew and Israel, and receive Jesus as Lord and Savior. Just as Saul was converted, we thank You for those ‘Saul conversions’ in Jesus’ name.

Luke 13:10‭-‬17 NKJV
Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up. But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, “Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.” And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath; and he said to the crowd, “There are six days on which men ought to work; therefore come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day.” The Lord then answered him and said, “Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it? So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?” And when He said these things, all His adversaries were put to shame; and all the multitude rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by Him.

We joined our faith, with other Covenant Believers for miracles in their body.

Prayed…

  • Father we come to You in Jesus’ name. We lift up those in covenant with You and have been bound by sickness, disease and infirmities. We stand in agreement that they are loosed in Jesus’ name. Thank You that they are healed by the stripes of Jesus.
  • Thank You that they are made whole in Jesus’ name. Thank You that their faith is not shaken, they stand strong and speak Your Word, and are apprehending in Jesus’ name.
  • It is manifestation time with signs and wonders. Thank You for creative miracles taking place. They are redeemed and are saying so in Jesus’ name.
  • Father thank You that where nerves and cells are dead we speak life in Jesus’ name. Rise up and walk. Thank You that cancers are eradicated. Hallelujah.
  • Father thank You that their heart beats with the rhythm of life. We call those arteries unblocked in Jesus’ name. Healthy lungs.
    Joints that have be withered – be loosed in Jesus’ name!
  • We declare over them with the stripes that wounded Him they are healed and made whole in Jesus’ name.
  • To God be all the glory. Hallelujah, thank You Lord.

Prophecy Spoken by Dr. Mark Barclay over Pastor Ric and Deborah
May 13, 2018

Now, listen to the Word of the Lord and listen carefully, the Lord says. You live in a day – I warned you about it – this day where people freely, of their own will, are turning their ears away from My truth, and being turned on to fables. Do not listen any longer to the hireling or the heretic or the one that declares to be clean but they’re dirty. You stick your nose in My Book. You stay in My house. And know this, Eagles Nest, I have given you a good Pastor. I have brought you here to the Word of God. Now you stick with it, the Lord says, and watch Me use you as a team, as a church family, as a ministry, and even individually. I call Lord, that anointing to fall upon the members of this church right now and I include all the visitors. Anyone who’s here from somewhere else, may this anointing fall up them as well, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Praise God.

Let’s lift our hands to Him, and let’s praise Him a minute. His name is Jesus. (praise)

Ric, Deborah, come up here. Father, I thank You. I feel impressed to lay my hands upon you. (tongues)
I placed you here because I knew you wouldn’t compromise. I called you to do this thing because I knew you wouldn’t quit on Me. I’ve had others – they walk away from me, they quit, they’re cowards. They turned soft. You have stood strong, my son and my daughter. And I tell, the day ahead is larger than what you have today. You’re going to… the Lord said, I’m taking out your tent stakes, and I’m widening your territory, both in preaching and in buildings, and facilities, and in congregation and the Lord said, you get ready, good shepherd, because you have the capability – this is the Lord speaking – you have the capability of Pastoring into the thousands. So, I’m going to bring you as many people that will obey Me. Do not feel sad shepherd boy, if they come from other churches, because I’m even doing that work today to resurrect My people and get them back under the living Word of God. (tongues)

And I say over you – come and pray with me Vickie – we just pray over you, I pray church growth, I see this church growing. I see people coming here like never before. They’re going to hear of you. Some already have. They’re going to hear of you and they’re going to come and say, teach us the Bible. Show us the way of God.

Now this verse comes to me…about the mountain of the Lord’s house will be exalted above all the other mountains and hills. And it says, and many will come to Him. I claim many for you. I claim many. We don’t have a long time before the Lord comes, You have a lot of work to do, Rev. And you’re a father like one now. God’s going to bring many to you, you watch, for you to minister to them. And don’t be shocked that younger preachers are going to come and say, teach me and help me and show me. But it says, glad when they said unto me let’s go to the mountain of the Lord’s house where He will teach us of His ways and the Word of the Lord will go out of that place. That’s what’s happening here, and that’s what’s going to keep happening here.

Is 54:17 Amp
“No weapon that is formed against you will succeed;
And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn.
This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
And this is their vindication from Me,” says the LORD.

  • We are triumphing over every opposition

Eph 6:10-20 Amp
In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might. 11 Put on the full armor of God [for His precepts are like the splendid armor of a heavily-armed soldier], so that you may be able to [successfully] stand up against all the schemes and the strategies and the deceits of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places. 13 Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist and stand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious]. 14 So stand firm and hold your ground, HAVING [a]TIGHTENED THE WIDE BAND OF TRUTH (personal integrity, moral courage) AROUND YOUR WAIST and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (an upright heart), 15 and having [b]strapped on YOUR FEET THE GOSPEL OF PEACE IN PREPARATION [to face the enemy with firm-footed stability and the readiness produced by the good news]. 16 Above all, lift up the [protective] [c]shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
18 With all prayer and petition pray [with specific requests] at all times [on every occasion and in every season] in the Spirit, and with this in view, stay alert with all perseverance and petition [interceding in prayer] for all [d]God’s people. 19 And pray for me, that words may be given to me when I open my mouth, to proclaim boldly the mystery of the good news [of salvation], 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. And pray that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly and courageously, as I should.

  • Not just physical opponents but spiritual ones as well

James 4:7 Amp
So submit to [the authority of] God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him] and he will flee from you.

We are waging war with what’s been prophesied and coming against everything opposing it from coming to pass.

Eyes upon Him- all mental & spiritual faculty.

Col 3:1-2– If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

You must not only seek heaven but think heaven.

Phil 3:19-20– whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame— who set their mind on earthly things. For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,

Matt 16:23-But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

1 John 2:15-17– Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Matt 6:19– “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matt 6:33-But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

1 Chron 29:3– Moreover, because I have set my affection on the house of my God, I have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house, my own special treasure of gold and silver:

Ps 91:14– “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

Our desire follows our attention. If we give our attention primarily to natural things, then our spiritual hunger will begin to dwindle. If we’ll give more attention to God by attending to Him in prayer and in the Word, our hunger for Him will increase.

Praying for the Body of Christ, to keep their mind/affections upon the Lord.

Prayed…

  • Father we lift the body of Christ before You. We pray that we set our minds in the things above; Your Word and prayer. They seek the kingdom of God first and not keep their focus on the things of the earth. We pray there is a hunger and thirst for You.
  • Thank You that as we seek You we put our affection on You daily. Thank You that we are citizens of heaven. We are seated at the right hand of God.
  • Thank You that the body of Christ is choosing to turn their eyes on Jesus. We are looking to Jesus, the Author and the Finisher of our faith.
  • We medicate on Your Word day and night. We are returning our eyes from distractions and unto You Lord.
  • There is a desire. The things of the world profits us nothing. We say this is the way, walk in it. Without You I am nothing and I can do nothing without You.
  • We lift the younger generation; that they seek You and Your ways. There is a hunger, a thirst and a fire rising in them. Firebrands Lord. Things of the world do not have a hold on them in Jesus’ name. Lord when Peter took his eyes off You he started to sink. Keep your eyes transfixed on Him.
  • Father thank You that the body of Christ is getting a revelation of who they are in Christ.
  • Father thank You for those renewed minds in Jesus. Amen. Thank You Lord.

Prayer Summary for March 19, 2019

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, 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.

Excerpt from Rick Renner’s
Teaching Letter

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

“It’s crucial that we know exactly what God wants us to do in life and not just expend energy in a random or scattershot way. To do that, it means we’ll have to discover where God wants us to be and then stay put in that place in faith. That’s what I want to talk to you about in this month’s letter: staying in a place of faith! I’ll be sharing a slightly different aspect of a familiar verse to show you the importance of the obedience of faith.

Hebrews 11:6 says about God, “But without faith it is impossible to please him….” Today I want to do a brief word study with you on the word “Without” in this verse. It comes from the Greek word choris, which means: to be outside of something, and it pictures someone who lives outside the perimeters of a city. It presents a comparison between being outside or inside something — for example, in the house or out of the house; in the yard or out of the yard; or in the car or out of the car.

The word choris — “without” — depicts someone who is out of, not in, a specific location. Because this word is used in connection with faith, the writer of Hebrews lets us know that we can live in or out of faith.

ARE YOU LIVING ‘IN’ FAITH OR ‘OUT OF’ FAITH?
This also means that faith must be a real place with BORDERS, PERIMETERS and BOUNDARIES. Just as you can live in the city or out of the city, you can live inside faith or outside of faith. The determining factor is your obedience to the assignment God has given you! God wants you to be located at this address of faith — for this is the location He deems the most valuable and profitable for your life. So residing at a place of faith for you means being exactly where God told you to be and staying right there, resolutely, in that place of faith.

Hebrews 11:6 could be accurately rendered:
When you live outside of faith, living beyond its boundaries and perimeters,
it is impossible to please Him….

Have you ever had a moment when you absolutely knew where God told you to be, what He told you to do — and you stuck with it, regardless of how difficult it was? If so, did you see God do the impossible for you as a result?

On the other hand, have you ever moved “out” from where God told you to be and from what He told you to do? If you’ve ever done this, you already personally know how disastrous it can be to surrender the place where God told you to be and to walk away from what He told you to do. The price for moving “out of” a place of faith is so costly.

I encourage you to stay put and not abandon the place where God called you to be. Don’t walk away from what He told you to do. It may be temporarily hard as you wait, but if you’ll hang on and stay put in faith, the Bible promises that you’ll eventually see God move miraculously for you!

QUESTIONS TO HELP YOU IDENTIFY
WHETHER YOU ARE ‘IN’ OR ‘OUT OF’ FAITH
To determine if you are in or out of faith, you must answer honestly the following questions:

  •  Am I doing what God told me to do?
  •  Am I determined to fulfill the assignment He gave for my life?
  •  Am I living in obedience to His Word and to the revelations He has given me?
  •  Am I faithfully sticking with the plan Jesus asked me to execute?

As long as you stay in that place where God told you to be, you are residing at that address of faith and you therefore please God. But the day you give up and move out of that place of faith, you will be moving into cheaper territory that God doesn’t value as highly — a location where you will experience the hardships and inconveniences of poor choices and defeat.

As you read on in Hebrews, you’ll see that the entire eleventh chapter is about men and women who lived inside the perimeters of faith. They each received a word from God for their own lives or for their generation. Although it was difficult to do, they held tightly to their mandate from Heaven. As a result, they changed their generations and pleased God. Faith was the location where they lived — and because they stayed in that place where God had called them, they brought great pleasure to Him.

A REWARD FOR THE PERSISTENT
The devil will try to discourage you from being steadfast and faithful. He’ll orchestrate situations designed to fill you with worry and fear. If you let the enemy’s plan work, it won’t be long before your bags will be packed and you’ll be changing locations — moving out of faith to low-level areas of defeat where you will not please God.

But for those who stay in faith, there is a reward. That is why Hebrews 11:6 says that God is a Rewarder. For those who refuse to be moved by circumstances; who adamantly reject any inclination to throw in the towel and quit; and who rebuff any temptation to let go of the word God gave them — it is just a matter of time until their faith is rewarded. They will receive the FULL manifestation of what they believe!

Hebrews 11:6 says God “…is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” You see, it takes diligence to stay in faith! It will require you to be focused, concentrated, and committed till the end. When circumstances try to knock you out of faith, you must have a fierce, unwavering commitment that you are not going to leave the place where God has called you.

  • So what has God asked you to do?
  • What is that place of faith where you are supposed to be living right now?
  • Are you staying in that place of faith, or have you been vacillating back and forth, in and out of the place where God called you to be?

Make the decision that there is no turning back from where God has called you. God promises that if you stay in faith, there is a glorious reward awaiting you in the near future. It’s only a matter of time until the full manifestation of what you are believing will come into view!
So make every effort to stay at your address of faith! Inside that place, with its borders, perimeters, and boundaries, you are living in the most valuable, beneficial location for your life. You are living where God can really bless you!”

We are Praying for Pastor Ric and Deborah and Eagles Nest Community Church – to stay within the “borders, perimeters and boundaries of faith”!

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

We honour You Lord. We welcome Your presence.

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 lift up those in authority in our nation: our Prime Minister, his cabinet; our supreme court; our MPs; our police forces—all those in authority in the land. We ask for the wisdom of God for the good of the nation, the land, and the people. We believe the wisdom of God will dismantle the wisdom of men. We believe the people You’ve chosen will come into office. We believe You for an awakening to what true righteousness is even to those in authority. Revive and awaken the Church to fulfill the great commission. Unite the spiritual authorities with the civil authorities. We put our faith in You and Your promise. And we declare, righteousness shall exalt this nation. Yes, Lord, we pray for that repositioning. Oh, Father we pray for that uncovering of corruption, lies, and deception Lord. We pray toward that complete uncovering. Oh, God we ask for the rains for this nation—awake the Church to righteousness. Revive us according to Your loving kindness. We thank You for the rains of the Spirit saturating people’s hearts. As the light of the gospel goes forth it pierces the darkness of men’s minds.
  • Father we pray for the nations to open up—doors of men’s hearts, doors in this city, and doors in this region to open up. We pray for the labourers to go forth and minister this glorious gospel to the people around us. The harvest is ripe and there are people ready to receive. We pray for this glorious harvest to come in now, in Jesus’ name. Oh, we loose divine provision for the going. Oh God we pray a fresh anointing—fresh oil upon Your labourers. Father we pray towards that new glory. Oh God enlarge our hearts, Your labourers—to see what You see and hear what You hear. I thank You Father for a fresh baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire. Oh, new doors, open new doors for Your labourers. Oh God we pray for those reinforcements for the army of the Lord to rise up, rise up, rise up to be added. Oh, the right people in the right place at the right time. Ha! Ha! Ha! Surprise, surprise, surprise! Ha! Ha! Ha! I thank You, mercy miracles! Mercy miracles, mercy miracles because You’re such a good God. Ha! Ha! Ha!
  • Father we pray for Jerusalem, for the peace—the shalom of Jerusalem. We bind the powers of darkness over this city, in the name of Jesus. We pray for wisdom for them to know and discern the time and to know what they ought to do. Your will be done in the election.
  • We pray for the peace—shalom, of St. Catharines. We pray for the peace of the Church—a working together. We draw the blood line around this city for safety, for preservation. In the name of Jesus we bind the spirit of suicide in this city. Lord we speak entrance, entrance, entrance into this city to know how, where, when and to know who. Entrance, entrance, entrance, in Jesus’ name.
  • Entrance, entrance, entrance by the blood of the Lamb. This is our city, in the name of Jesus. Thank You Father for favour in this city. Favour for the Church. A willingness to accommodate the Church. Ha! Ha! Ha! Oh thank You Lord! Praise God! Oh Lord You’re so good!

Psalm 31:19
Oh, how great is Your goodness,
Which You have laid up for those who fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who trust in You
In the presence of the sons of men!

Prayer is the channel through which ALL GOOD flows from God to man.

We prayed toward the prophetic word the Lord spoke to Deborah on November 2018, that a

Major Release is Coming:

1. Of people
2. Of finances
3. Of the wealth (anointing) of the kingdom of God.

God will openly display His purposed goodness toward, for, and through His people.

Prayed…

  • Father we thank You this all has to do with the demonstration of You. There’s no limit to Your goodness, Your faithfulness to perform Your Word. We at Eagles Nest believe You. You are equipping and training us for this major release; major development; layering of events; and this backdrop—getting us set to build a habitation for Your presence. We see through the eyes of faith: major releases; people coming; the wealth of the kingdom. We see the wealth of this world coming into our hands to bless our community; city of St. Catharines; and the nations of the world. Father God we trust You for these layering events—a domino effect. Father we trust You. We don’t lean on our own understanding, in all our ways we acknowledge You and You shall direct our paths. We aren’t wise in our own eyes—we will listen, and we will obey. Oh, the blood prevails! The blood prevails! The blood prevails over these matters! Oh, the name of Jesus shall be glorified—shall be glorified! Oh it’s a tight time frame! Tight time frame! Tight time frame! Tight time frame says the Lord. Ha! Ha! Ha!

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

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

Prayed…

  • We thank You Father. We honour and we worship You this morning as the One true God. Let the name of the Lord be magnified! Let the name of the Lord be exalted—worthy is the Lamb, the King!
  • Father exposure, the hidden things of men are being exposed. The hidden things—hidden in dark places, the light is exposing. We lift up the Prime Minister and his family this morning. Reveal Yourself to him Lord God. Reveal Yourself to his family. Father truth that will touch their hearts that they may come to know You. Open their eyes Father, open their ears to hear what Your Spirit is saying unto them this morning. We lift up the Prime Minister’s cabinet; the opposition party; the federal, provincial, and municipal government, Lord God. Wisdom, wisdom—oh Lord God wisdom is crying out and they’re hearing the wisdom of God. Oh discernment for the times we’re in. We lift up our judges—lawmaker, convict them of their sin—return them to righteousness. We bind every work of darkness; every lying spirit, in the name of Jesus. God’s plan being established in this nation of Canada. God’s will and purpose shall stand forevermore. A restructuring in the government—this election will bring a restructuring. God’s purpose for this time and this hour.
  • We thank You Lord. Father we lift up Israel—peace to Jerusalem and peace to Your people. The plans of men shall come to nothing, but Father Your will be done in the nation of Israel. Father position Your people—position Your people as it is Your will. Hidden agenda’s being exposed. We bind that spirit of deception. Every covert operation of the enemy—within and that are around her—we say exposure, in the name of Jesus. Revive Your people Lord God. Open their eyes to truth, scales of darkness being removed. Revelation comes by way of Your Spirit. We thank You Father—a harvest, a great harvest. No one shall stop the harvest that will come out of Israel. No one—Thy will be done Father.
  • Father we call in our harvest from out of St. Catharines, the Niagara Region, out of the far corners of Ontario, out of Canada. Father they hear the call and they answer the call—all that are marked—none shall be left behind. Revelation comes to them by way of Your Spirit. The Word runs swiftly across the land penetrating the hearts of men. Labourers on assignment this morning. They’re awake! They’re alert and they go—labourers on assignment. The Word leaves their mouths empowered by God—Hebrews 4:12 (TPT) – For we have the living Word of God, which is full of energy, and it pierces more sharply than a two-edged sword. It will even penetrate to the very core of our being where soul and spirit, bone and marrow meet! It interprets and reveals the true thoughts and secret motives of our hearts. Oh we thank You Father, the labourers go out with the Sword—Your Word. Father I thank You as the Word goes forth things are being exposed. Hearts pierced—conviction comes followed by repentance. We thank You Father. Father a hungering and a thirsting after righteousness. A desire in their hearts for the truth and they embrace it—for it is life. We thank You Father.
  • Father we thank You for our building. We thank You for the provisions Lord God. We thank You for open doors for this Body of Believers. Order our steps Father. We cover Pastor Ric, Deborah and the leadership under the blood of Jesus. We cover every member of this Congregation under the blood. We have chosen to be on the side of the Lord. Have Your way Father—to the glory of our Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:9-11 (AMPC) – 8 And last of all He appeared to me also, as to one prematurely and born dead [no better than an unperfected fetus among living men]. 9 For I am the least [worthy] of the apostles, who am not fit or deserving to be called an apostle, because I once wronged and pursued and molested the church of God [oppressing it with cruelty and violence]. 10 But by the grace (the unmerited favour and blessing) of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not [found to be] for nothing (fruitless and without effect). In fact, I worked harder than all of them [the apostles], though it was not really I, but the grace (the unmerited favour and blessing) of God which was with me. 11 So, whether then it was I or they, this is what we preach and this is what you believed [what you adhered to, trusted in, and relied on].

1 Corinthians 15:9-11 (MSG) – 9 …..and that he finally presented himself alive to me. It was fitting that I bring up the rear. I don’t deserve to be included in that inner circle, as you well know, having spent all those early years trying my best to stamp God’s church right out of existence. 10-11 But because God was so gracious, so very generous, here I am. And I’m not about to let his grace go to waste. Haven’t I worked hard trying to do more than any of the others? Even then, my work didn’t amount to all that much. It was God giving me the work to do, God giving me the energy to do it. So whether you heard it from me or from those others, it’s all the same: We spoke God’s truth and you entrusted your lives.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (TPT) – Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new creation. All that is related to the old order has vanished.[a] Behold, everything is fresh and new.[b]

Footnotes:

1. [a] This would include our old identity, our life of sin, the power of Satan, the religious works of trying to please God, our old relationship with the world, and our old mind-sets. We are not reformed or simply refurbished, we are made completely new by our union with Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

2. [b] Or “Behold, a new order has come!”

We are praying for Believers to hold fast to all that God has said in His Word about—who we are in Christ Jesus—the work of His shed blood and the Truth we have received and embraced through faith. Zechariah 4:6 (CEV) – …. I am the Lord All-Powerful. So don’t depend on your own power or strength, but on My Spirit.

(note: all emphasis mine)

Prayed…

  • Father we lift up the Church this morning. We bind that spirit of condemnation that would attack Your people and render them immobile. Romans 1:8 (TPT) says – I give thanks to God for all of you, because it’s through your conversion to Jesus Christ, that the testimony of your strong, persistent faith is spreading throughout the world. Father we are in Christ. We are Your people, called by Your name. We stand on this side of the cross. The blood, the blood, the blood is speaking on our behalf! We have been cleansed by the blood. We received it by faith—we receive it by faith. By Your grace we have been changed. By Your grace we have been delivered and set free. Oh Your grace—the grace, the grace! We hold fast to Your grace and to Your mercy. Lamentations 3:22-23 (AMPC) – 22 It is because of the Lord’s mercy and loving-kindness that we are not consumed, because His [tender] compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning; great and abundant is Your stability and faithfulness. Father we thank You for Your faithfulness. We thank You for Your mercies that are new every morning. We hold fast to the truth of Your Word. We have been redeemed. We have been redeemed—purchased by the blood. We’re in covenant with God. We thank You Father. We declare it—we have the mind of Christ. We know who we are in Christ. We are a new creation. Ha! Ha! Ha! Yes, a new creation. We no longer look behind us, but we look forward, pressing toward the mark and we thank You. Empowered by the Holy Spirit to stand. Empowered by the Holy Spirit of finish this race. More than overcomers! More than overcomers in Christ! Thank You Father.

Prayed…

  • Father thank You that Your love is made known in the nations of the earth. Thank You that Your Spirit is being poured out on the nations. Thank You that Your glory is being revealed. Thank You that lives are being transformed this day as they hear the truth of Your gospel,
  • Thank You for the labourers who are busy about the Father’s business and are going into the harvest and casting out the nets of salvation. Thank You that as they go and minister the Word, they are not ashamed, and You confirm Your Word with signs and wonders.
  • Thank You that blind eyes are seeing, hard hearts are softening, deaf ears are opening this day. We bind the deceiving spirits that blinded men’s eyes from seeing the truth in Jesus’ name.
  • Thank You that the message of repentance is going forth Lord. Thank You that they are being restored back to you.
  • Father thank You that there is a whole harvest field right here in the city and region. Thank You that we are reaping, we are going out and being busy about Your business. We have a passion for souls. We are making it a matter of urgency. You are causing them to be planted in this house.
  • Father thank You that they are some relationships that are being restored. Thank You that spiritual sons and daughters are returning to their borders. We call them loosed from the north, south, east and west.
  • Thank You that it is the time of fulfillment of that which Your Spirit declared to Pastor Ric and Deborah. Thank You that there is provision for the vision. We call it loosed in Jesus’ name. Thank You that Pastor Ric and Deborah have favour with You and favour with man. Thank You for wisdom for the leadership of this house. Father thank you for pastors coming out of the fields of the fatherless and see Pastor Ric as their spiritual father.
  • We lift the nation of Canada and all those in authority in this nation. We pray for our Prime Minister. We ask he be filled with Your wisdom, Your hand leading and guiding him. Thank You for wisdom for every political leader in every region Lord. We declare over this nation it is strong; we declare it is leading; we declare it is a blessed nation.
  • Thank You that our dollar is strong, businesses are booming, and it is a nation that is going to fear the Lord. We declare Jesus Christ is Lord over Canada and he has dominion from sea to sea. The purpose of this nation that God spoke over us shall come to pass in Jesus’ name.
  • Father we lift the nation of Israel. We declare peace to Jerusalem. Thank You for Your hand of protection over them, Your hand upon their Prime Minister. No weapon formed against him will prosper. There is a backfiring of the enemy’s plans. We pray strength and alertness to Israel’s military. We cover them with the blood of Jesus. Thank You that their undercover manoeuvres are successful in Jesus’ name.

Malachi 3:6‭-‬12 NKJV
“For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob. Yet from the days of your fathers You have gone away from My ordinances And have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” Says the Lord of hosts. “But you said, ‘In what way shall we return?’ “Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, For you have robbed Me, Even this whole nation. 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. “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; “And all nations will call you blessed, For you will be a delightful land,” Says the Lord of hosts.

We prayed for the Body of Christ to get a revelation regarding the obedience of tithing.

Prayed…

  • Father we come to You in Jesus’ name and we lift the body of Christ. We repent on behalf of the body of those who willfully chose to disobey the Father.
  • We pray that their eyes of understanding be enlightened. You can’t serve both God and mammon. They choose to serve You with their heart and give tithes and offerings.
  • They are not coveting and withholding but are releasing it in Jesus’ name. Thank You that the love of money has no hold on them.
    We bind the spirit of fear and the spirit of unbelief in Jesus’ name.
  • Thank You that they come to You with repentant hearts. We pray pastors teach on the importance of the tithing and His kingdom principles. You said for those who obey and give with right hearts You rebuke the devourer for their sakes.
  • It is a tithe of all. It is not tipping God, it is tithing to God. We bind the spirit of disobedience and rebellion in Jesus’ name. There is a willingness and a quickness to obeying You.
  • When You love the Lord with all Your heart, You keep His commandments. His Word is clear that You need to tithe. Thank You that as people tithe, mortal men receive tithes, but there He receives them, of whom it is witnessed that He lives.
  • When we tithe, we do it unto Jesus. You don’t try tithing, tithing is a lifestyle for a believer.

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 prayed towards Israel’s biblical boundaries and borders being established
  • Prime Minister Netanyahu – like Issachar- recognizing the times and seasons and knowing what Israel ought to be doing

Eccl 3:1-8,11 Amp
There is a season (a time appointed) for everything and a time for every delight and event or purpose under heaven—
2 A time to be born and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
3 A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
4 A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
5 A time to throw away stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing.
6 A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7 A time to [a]tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to keep silent and a time to speak.
8 A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.
11 He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end.

Prayed…

Praying that Pastor Ric and Deborah may know the timings of God.

  • Perfect timing
  • Right on time – not a minute late, not a minute early
  • “The next step”

Praying towards the Barclay Conference

  • Everything coming into place and order
  • Grace over our Church as we host
  • God knows who is to attend – that they’d listen and obey
