God You Are Just Enough For Me - Nee Mathram mathi, Nee Mathram mathi....

I remember singing this song whole day in 2010 - a worship with confession saying God you are just enough for me.  Jehovah Jireh, God the Provider, you are just enough for me; Jehovah Rapha, God the Healer, I am healed by your stripes and you are just enough for me; Jehovah Shamma, God who is present, you are with me always and you provide all blessings; Lord You are just enough for me; Jehovah Elohim, God the Creator, all things were created by Your Word;  You are just enough for me; Jehovah Elyon, The Lord Most High, there is none compared to You and You are just enough for me;  Jehovah Shalom, God of My Peace and wholesomeness, You have blessed me with Your peace.  Lord, you are just enough for me!!

Read this and take action!!

"I am having these thoughts of suicide after a long string of defeats. There is no pleasure in my existence. I know God is perfect, but I am not. I have made so many mistakes that cannot be repaired. Wrong choices, deadly relationships, wrong jobs. I am 51 years old and not married, no children and in a dead end job...... My sister and her children have been staying with me in my one bedroom apartment, but she has been unable to help with rent for one reason or another because her money has to go to care for her kids and buy gas for her car. She has been blessed continuously and loves church. I have not been blessed at all. I do attend church and am a Christian. However, even though I have asked God to make some good of the mess which is my life, He has not done so. I don't really see how I can go on. Going to church is a nightmare. My church prides itself on the family relationship- specifically marriage. I have not been asked to be married and I do not have children. I walk alone in this life. Women cannot understand me because they are family oriented and I make them uncomfortable when I answer them with No, No and No when they are trying to get to know me and ask "So are you married, do you have kids.. do you have a boyfriend?" I have been made a wandered and a vagabond on this earth and I do not feel the love of Christ blessing my life. I don't know what to do. I feel that I am being tormented because everywhere I go, there are young women pregnant, with families, rejoicing in church. I do not want to go to church anymore. I am writing to you because I feel so despondent. My sister cannot relate because she has been married before and knows she will get married again because single men are attracted to her in that way, especially men (ministers) who attend church. i am not nearly as attractive as she. I have had relationships, but only for what I could provide (car, cell phone, place to live) to a guy. I believed otherwise for years until I could see the pattern. Until xxxx came along last year. ------- I feel like I am a curse and invisible on this land and a waste of God's time. I am skilled in pharmacy and have tried to take my life several times, but I just keep waking up to this misery. Just before I had surgery in xxxx, I had this strong feeling that I wasn't going to see xxxxx anymore and told him so, believing I was going to die on the operating table. I didn't even pray for a safe surgery. But it was him that died and not me. if God doesn't want to help me, I don't believe anyone can. I am desperate and ashamed to be me. Every day I hope to be found by a stray bullet or a auto collision. I am living a life most miserable. I cannot get a prayer through. I hope you can. Thank you for reading..."

Dear Readers:

What you have read above is a note from a sister who was desperately seeking help.  Let the Christian community wake up to cater to the needs of such people among us.

Luke 4:16-20
So Jesus came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."
Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. 21 And Jesus began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

Are we manifesting the work of the Lord to the needy ones? A time to ponder and act!! May the Spirit of the Lord minister to us all.

Growing up to be tender and tough like Jesus!!

Yesterday, I happened to read mails from those struggling in their lives, a quite an alarming number of them sounding hopeless, worthless and suicidal and expressing their thoughts of depression.  As I was reading I was really moved in my spirit and started praying Lord, there are so many needy people who are desperately seeking help, Lord Jesus please send your help to them and save them and protect their lives.

Just pondering over these things and the reality that every minister/believer of God have their own situations of problems and worries and tough situations and trials.  As maturing Christians, we have been trained in our Christian walk to be tough to our own sufferings and to be tender and compassionate towards others' problems and needs.  We need to grow up to say “we are hard-pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed but not in despair; persecuted but not abandoned; struck down but not destroyed.” We need to be strengthened in faith first so that we can become a source of strength to others in need. We have no role model other than Jesus.  He is the one we must follow and imitate. 
Ephesians 5:1-2 “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.“

As being led by the Spirit of the Lord, I am sharing an article here, author of which is not known, for the benefit of the Body of Christ.

JESUS - TOUGH OR TENDER?  JOHN 2:12-25, MARK 10:13-16

How many here went to Sunday School when you were young?  I thought that the vast majority would have.  And what was probably the song that you learnt the most?  Jesus loves me this I know? 
Sing:  Jesus loves me this I know, for the bible tells me so, little ones to him belong, they are weak but he is strong.  Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me, the bible tells me so.

Whilst this is very true it gives the impression because of the lyrics and tune that Jesus is meek and mild and never gets angry.  It’s such a lovely tune.  But I want to put it to you that Jesus is not some weak woos that gets walked over or never gets upset.  Yes, Jesus talks a lot about love, and most would think that he speaks more about love than he does about giving for instance, but even though that’s not true, but we get the impression that he is always loving and forgiving.  But if that all we think he is, then we can have a wrong perspective and never worry about what we do wrong because in our view he will not punish us or cause us to face the consequences of our wrong choices.  But we need to have a more rounded view of Jesus.

Of course we see this soft, tender side of Jesus in our reading this morning about him blessing the little children.  But, as I say, if we only ever see him as loving and forgiving, which he is, then we are only seeing and understanding part of ‘who’ he really is. 

Jesus Christ would have to be one of the toughest people to ever walk on this earth.  He went through so much in his life that most of us would simply crumble under and give up.  He faced very real persecution and ridicule.  He faced people who stood against everything he said.  In the end Jesus had to suffer the kind of physical abuse that probably no one in human history has had to face before or since.  The movie, The Passion of the cross, showed one of the greatest and most real portrayals of what Jesus went through that has ever been recorded.  I feel the beating may have gone on for a bit long, but when you read passages like Isaiah 52:14 you can certainly understand what Jesus went through. That verse says that he was not recognizable.

Even on the cross what he suffered showed that he was no woos.  Jesus could have said no and come down from the cross, but he knew that this was why he came to this earth and he knew this was the only way mankind could get right with God.  So he hung on that cross.  He was in utter agony but refused the drink that would have eased his pain.  He wanted to feel every bit of that suffering for you and me.

But this is not the toughness that I even want to talk about most this morning.  The toughness that I feel we sometimes don’t think about are those times when Jesus showed real guts and determination to say and do things that went against the religious norms and leaders of the day in an attempt to stand up for what was right and godly.  Jesus was tough on those who did the wrong thing.  He made people face the consequences of their wrong actions.  In Matthew 21 we read of the time when Jesus went to the Temple to pray and found it full of people running a Sunday Market.  The same story as recorded in John 2 shows how Jesus took the time to make a whip so he could use that to drive the money changers and the stall holders out of God’s house.  Even though he was really angry at what they had done to God’s house of prayer he took the time to prepare what he was going to do and how he was going to do it.  He came in with his whip and overturned tables and threw people out of the temple because the people were mocking God’s house. 

In Matthew 19 Jesus was asked by a rich man what he had to do to get eternal life.  Jesus told him to keep the commandments and the guy said he had done that since he was young.  But then Jesus told him that he had to sell all he had and give the money to the poor.  Jesus knew that the man was wealthy and that it would be hard for him to let go of all he owned.  Jesus even let him walk away into an eternity away from His love and grace and forgiveness because he couldn’t bring himself to give up ownership of all he had.  Jesus, if he was tender and soft, could have said for the guy to give away ten percent of all he had and that would be near enough.  But no.  He was tough with him because he knew that this guy needed to get rid of the hold money had on him so he could give his whole life to Christ.  Jesus knew the consequences of this guy’s decision to walk away, but he let him, at least in an effort to teach his disciples a lesson about the hold money and possessions can have on a person.

But then we can contrast that tough stance with our other reading from John 2 where Jesus is asked by his mother to help out the bridegroom of the wedding because he had run out of wine.  Jesus was very reluctant to do anything because he had not really begun his ministry and didn‘t want it know who he was.  But his mother was persuasive, as most mothers can be, and he showed his tender side by producing some excellent wine so the bridegroom looked great instead of being utterly embarrassed. 

So.  What can we learn from the two very important aspects of this character of Jesus?  I think there are a number of things as we look at the various stories in the bible and see how Jesus handled things.

Firstly, Just as Jesus was tender toward the little children so we need to love and care for children in the same manner.  Just as Jesus said not to hinder them from coming to him, so we must not hinder the children in our family or church family from finding faith in Jesus.  We need to do all we can to make it as easy as possible for children to learn about Christ and hopefully come to know him as their Saviour and Lord.

Secondly, we can learn that when we do wrong there will be consequences.  Jesus stood firm in his zeal for God’s temple and threw out the market people in no uncertain terms.  He stood up for what was right.  When we do right we don’t need to worry about any punishment or bad consequences, we can simply get on with life and living for God.

Thirdly, Jesus cared for his mother and others more than he cared for himself, as we saw in the story of the wedding, and did what she asked.  There were times when Jesus chose to honor others above himself.  We too need to be confident in our faith so we have a humility that honors others above ourselves.  Pride and self-centeredness should not be part of our character.  God honors those who look beyond themselves and care for others.

Fourthly, Even when Jesus was on his way to work one miracle he stopped to heal someone else.  Even when we are called by God to go and do something there can be something that comes along that we might need to deal with along the way.  That should not distract us from doing what we are meant to, but it may be part of the journey that we need to experience.

I can remember J John from the UK speaking at the Edge conference a few years ago.  Every morning he prays for opportunities to bless others and share God’s love with them.  He told how one day he was heading to a meeting but even as he was walking along the street to this meeting, he believed God was saying for him to get his shoes shone by a guy on the side of the street.   He argued with God for a moment saying he didn’t have time and that he would be late if he did this, but in the end gave up and did what he felt God told him to do, which is always the best option.  He sat there, got his shoes shone, and whilst doing so struck up a conversation with the shoe shine man.  The guy opened up to him about his life story and J John was able to encourage him and share his faith with him, even giving him one of his books, before then leaving and going to his meeting.  So even if we know God has called us to go and do something that may not be the only thing he wants us to do on the way.  We just need to be open to hearing and doing what God says.

Fifthly, we may have to suffer for believing in Jesus Christ, but in the end, we will receive God’s richest rewards for standing firm in our faith.  If you read the story of Brother Yun from China in “The Heavenly Man”, you will soon understand the kind of persecution some Christians do suffer.  He was imprisoned for years and was severely beaten and even went on a complete starvation diet for some 74 days and yet miraculously survived and he has been a real blessing to millions of people, and in turn has been blessed himself.

What we need to understand is that the true Jesus is not tough or tender, he is both.  As His brothers and sisters, children of the same God and heavenly Father, we too must be both tough and tender.  We too need to learn to be tough and stand up for what Christ would stand up for and we need to be as tender as he was in times and circumstances that require that soft heart and tender approach. 

I believe we can all grow in both these areas.  I believe we can all be a lot tougher when standing up for God’s truth and his principles, morals and standards, and at the same time we can become more caring, loving and tender toward those people and situations that need it.

That is the true heart of God and of Jesus.  As we read God’s word and get to know Jesus Christ we can certainly see that feminine side where he cares like no other, and yet we also see the masculine side that is strong and firm. 

Let’s not pigeonhole Jesus and only think of him as some meek and mild weakling who wouldn’t hurt a fly.  But let us see him as both tough and tender, willing to do whatever is right in the circumstance he finds himself.

Let’s pray.
I am sure this article would have been a blessing to you as much as it has been  to me.  Please feel free to share with me your thoughts and comments on this post.  God Bless!!

I want to know You - Jesus Culture (with lyrics) (Worship with tears 16)


I stand before You, Awed by Your Majesty
Covered by Your mercy, Your blood has made me free
Draw me to You, and set my heart on fire

I want to Know,
You're my one desire

I give you my worship
All of my Passion
I give you my whole heart
All my devotion

Grace never ending, Your hands they carry me
Your body is broken for all the world to see
My heart is held by love so unconditional

You captivate me
You're the lover of my soul

I give you my worship
All of my Passion
I give you my whole heart
All my devotion

Here I will bow down
Say that I need You
Here I will worship
Say that I love you

Oh how I love you (4x)

I want to know You
Let Your Spirit overwhelm me
Let Your Presence overtake my heart

FINDING OUT WHAT PLEASES GOD --A search into the Scriptures

Our connection with God is a relationship and it is more than any relationship in the world and has to be given the first priority.  Understanding the individuals is vital for any healthy relationship.  The longer you get to know someone, the more you should know about what makes that person happy. It is evident that you do not know a person well if you do not know what he/she likes. God will let you know what He likes, what pleases Him, if you just want to know.  In Ephesians 5:10 Paul commands us to find out what pleases God and live accordingly.  Hebrews 11:6 ----And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.

Ephesians 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

Ephesians 1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

Today, let us dig deeper to learn more about God and what pleases Him from the pages of Bible for the word of God says in Ephesians 5: 9 and 10 "Live as children of light  (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)  and find out what pleases the Lord."

I. GOD IS A CREATOR AND HE ENJOYS CREATING THINGSRev. 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

 Colossians 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
III. GOD IS SO COMPASSIONATE AND IT PLEASES GOD TO SAVE THE SINNERS--Ezekiel 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

 Isa 53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 

1 Cor. 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

IV. GOD IS ZEALOUS AND FAITHFUL AND IT PLEASES GOD TO BLESS HIS PEOPLE---Numbers 24:1 And when Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he went not, as at other times, to seek for enchantments, but he set his face toward the wilderness

V. GOD IS PLEASED IN THE WELL-BEING OF HIS SERVANTS -Psalm 35:27 “The LORD be exalted, who delights in the well-being of his servant.”

VI. GOD IS PLEASED WITH THOSE WHO FEAR HIM AND WHOSE HOPE IS ON HIM----Psalm 147:11 the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.

VII. GOD IS PLEASED TO DISCIPLINE THEM THAT HE LOVES –----Proverbs 3:12 because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.

VIII. GOD IS PURE AND IS PLEASED WITH THE BLAMELESS WALK---Proverbs 11:20 -- The LORD detests those whose hearts are perverse, but he delights in those whose ways are blameless.

IX. GOD HATES LIES AND IS PLEASED WITH TRUSTWORTHY PEOPLE---Proverbs 12:22 ---The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.

X. GOD IS PLEASED WITH INTEGRITY ---1 Chronicles 29:17 --I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity

--- 1 Corinthians 15:38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.


Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Colossians 3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

2 Timothy 2:12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:

1 Cor. 12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.  Galatians 1:15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace.

Hope this has been a blessing to you all.  Please feel free to share with me your thoughts based on the scriptures the things that please God that we can apply in our daily walk with God!!

21-Day Prayer Focus: Praying Like Daniel

July 20, 2004
I greet you and thank God on a daily basis on your behalf. 
Dutch Sheets and I are in Rhode Island finishing our 49th State Meeting. I fly from here to Washington DC to be with Robert Stearns at the East Coast Conference
      Prayer is moving across this nation.  However, we must shift into a different way of praying.  If you will remember, when I was in DC in May, the Lord gave a prophetic word and confirmed it with hail falling from heaven.  He said that we would have to pray for 21 days to see changes in this land, especially in the governmental arena.
The following prayer focus helps you to understand a new way of praying and warring like Daniel, which opened the heavens and released future revelation.
      I am also including a pre-order offer for "Prayers that Outwit the Enemy". This is a key, different book for this hour. Please preorder. It will be released the 2nd week of August. We will send it to you for $10, and we will pay the postage for US orders.

Praying Like Daniel: A 21-Day Prayer Focus to Help Overcome Adversaries in Babylon
We are entering into a season of Harvest praying! This is the time that we are to be watching NEW DOORS FORM.  To “form” means to develop or mold the shape or outline of something, or to give meaning, character or nature to something.
      Another way of thinking about a season of formation is to see something (including the conditioning of our mind and body in regard to their mental performance) as it will be in days ahead. A forming season includes conceiving, training, and disciplining. This phase denotes the arrangement of the part of a thing that gives its distinctive appearance. 
A key scripture reference during this Season of Pentecost, the festival where a first-fruits offering of the Harvest was made, is 1 Corinthians 16:8. Paul purposed to stay at Ephesus until Pentecost, because an effectual door was opened to him for his ministry.
This was what the Lord showed me when He visited me in December:
Many enemies are behind this door that is forming, but the Lord says: “Do not focus on your enemies during this season, but watch the door form and be ready to enter into this new opportunity. I will give you grace over your enemies.” This is the time for a major conversion of souls.
     Ephesians 6:12
reminds us, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” 
Not only should we be praying for our cities and nations at this time, but we are at the peak of praying for our mission to the 40/70 Window. This is the time to pray in a way that the Spirit of God will invade nations. As we pray, new doors form!
The person in the Bible that has affected my prayer life the most, other than Jesus, is Daniel. I just love how he operated in victory in Babylon. He was truly “in the world, but not of it.” He was disciplined, sensitive, consistent, uncompromising, bold, supernatural, attentive to the past, but always pressing toward God’s expected end for the people of Israel.
      He understood how prophecy was important in our prayer lives. He knew we had to use the prophecies spoken, to war for our future! Take, for example, the situation when Jeremiah prophesied that the people of Israel would go into captivity, but would be released in 70 years. Daniel uncovered the prophetic writings of Jeremiah while Israel was still held captive in Babylon. He learned that Jerusalem must lie desolate for 70 years, and that 70-year period had now come to an end.
      Because of Jeremiah’s prophetic declaration, Daniel knew that now was the time to act. Jeremiah’s understanding of the future had turned into a “now” word for Daniel.  So, Daniel did four specific things to bring an end to Israel’s captivity:
1.  He prayed and fasted.  Jeremiah was specific in saying that the Lord would turn a deaf ear to His people for 70 years.  Now, however, Daniel knew that the kairos time had come to beseech the Lord for an end to captivity. 
2.  He repented for himself and his people.  Daniel confessed and repented not only for his own sin, but for the sins, iniquities, and failures of the Israelites that resulted in their captivity in the first place.
3. He received an angelic visitation.  God honored Daniel’s efforts and sent His archangel, Michael.  After three weeks of prayer, fasting, and repentance, an angel appeared to Daniel to tell him what was written in the “Book of the Future.” In other words, he told Daniel what would happen to his people.
4.  He received revelation of the future.  Because of Jeremiah’s prophecy, Daniel understood the times in which he was living.  Because he understood the times, he saw his window of opportunity and began to seek the Lord with great fervency.  When he did, he gained an understanding of the future God had for his people, and through obedience to God’s commands, could move them forward, out of their captivity.
When the word of God is released through prophecy, it is never forgotten.  It is stored in heaven until God is ready to release it back into the earth.
In the Body of Christ, we have received many prophetic words, both through Scripture and through modern-day prophets, that are about to come to pass on earth.  We need to understand the times, seize our kairos opportunities, and move into the future with victory!
      Even though times ahead will change rapidly and may be difficult, we have great confidence that God will give us the revelation we need to move forward.  When we are overwhelmed by our present circumstances and apparent defeats, we must hear the Lord speak to us, just as He did to Jeremiah,Is there anything too hard for Me?”
Daniel has also been a model for me in training my children. I know we need to protect our children from evil. However, I also believe we need to train our children in the release of the anointing, discerning of evil spirits, and how to operate in receiving divine revelation from the Throne Room. I feel this is a time to train our children in a supernatural dimension that will give them authority in days ahead on this earth.
      I do not want my children, of which I have several, to be afraid of the supernatural. We find in the first two chapters of Daniel that he was trained to understand the supernatural. When the magicians and diviners could not interpret the king’s dream, Daniel knew that he could enter into a higher dimension of divine revelation.
      Therefore, instead of Daniel and all the diviners being killed, he not only saved their lives but his also, by knowing how to receive divine revelation. He knew how to seek the Lord in almost any situation. The Lord is going to require us to parent our children like this in days ahead. 
In Daniel 7, we also find revelation of the Ancient of Days. I believe this is very important and needed revelation for us to be victorious in prayer in days ahead. In Daniel 7:9-14 we find that Daniel had a revelation of God’s everlasting reigning power. He states:
I watched until thrones were put (set) in place, and the Ancient of Days was seated...One like the Son of Man came to the Ancient of Days…Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations and languages should serve Him.  His dominion is an everlasting dominion and His kingdom shall not be destroyed.”
This name of God, “Ancient of Days,” is a phrase that describes the Everlasting God, One advanced in days or knowledge, the Father of Years, and One who forwards time, or rules over it.  The name implies dignity, endurance, judgment, and wisdom. His number of years is undiscoverable (Job 36:26).
The Ancient of Days has a covenant with the earth. In this covenant, the earth will be full of His purposes and He will be long-suffering until all have heard. The heart of God is to form covenant with all peoples on the face of earth and establish a house of prayer for each one (Is. 56:5-8) including those in your city. That is why we must learn how to prophecy to that which has been scattered through these thrones of iniquity
      Just as Ezekiel did in Ezekiel 37, we must speak to the dry bones and command them to be brought back to life. This kind of prophetic declaration not only reestablishes God’s covenant purpose for a territory, but also brings those within the territory out of their hope deferred, causing them to rebuild that which the enemy has destroyed.
The Ancient of Days releases ancient wisdom for present day victory.  A Scripture that has revolutionized my prayer life has been 1 Corinthians 2:6-10:
We speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of the age, nor the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew, for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory.  Eye has not seen or ear heard…the things prepared for those who love Him.  But God has revealed them to us through the Spirit.” 
God gives us several keys as we pray:
  • God has wisdom greater than any worldly wisdom we see.
  • Powers and principalities do not have access to this wisdom.
  • The authority of demonic forces is limited.
  • There is wisdom that has been hidden since the beginning of time, for His glory.
  • Through the redemptive cross of Jesus Christ, you have access to this wisdom.
  • God is prepared to release this wisdom to us as we get to know Him intimately, through prayer.
  • This wisdom will overthrow high places and release captives.
  • Wisdom dismantles demonic structures and dethrones thrones of iniquity.
When the Lord showed this to me, I knew any demonic force holding a territory captive could not withstand the wisdom that God will release to His people. I knew if the Spirit of the Lord burdened me to pray for a city, I had authority to gain the keys for the release of its inhabitants.
      This is a day when the Lord is extending a fresh call of prayer to His people. He is going to show us our city as it really is and say to us:
“Overcome every obstacle that is keeping these people from coming to know Me. Open the door for My House to be built within them so they may experience My Love throughout eternity. Through prayer, gain wisdom that will dethrone the thrones of iniquity wherever they have been established. Then establish My Throne that many may worship Me and gain life everlasting!”
This is how entire cities will experience conversion. This is how we will overthrow thrones of iniquity and see God’s covenant plan for whole territories flourish in days ahead. In Daniel 10, we find Daniel seeking God with intensity for 21 days. At that point, the Ancient of Days sent the aid of Michael, the Archangel.  Revelation was then released into the earth realm - revelation that we are walking in today.
To understand lawlessness and how it works in the antichrist system, we can look at the book of Daniel. This was a man who had a revelation of the Ancient of Days. Daniel’s vision is recorded in Daniel 7:21-22: 
“I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.”
In this passage we see that the Ancient of Days is going to favor us (the saints) in days ahead and the time will come for the saints to possess the Kingdom. That means we will take dominion, govern, prevail, and dominate the world powers around us.
However, in verses 24 and 25 we find this:
“The ten horns are ten kings who shall arise from this kingdom.  And another shall rise after them, He shall be different from the first ones, and shall subdue three kings. He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time.” 
Notice what scripture says the enemy does. It says here that he will attempt to change both times and law. He will attempt to redefine law and pull us out of God’s timing. We must understand timing and God’s spiritual boundaries He has given us through law. If not, deception will easily enter into our lives.
There is then that famous story about Daniel and his lion’s den experience. The thing I like about Daniel most is his consistency in praying and seeking the Lord in the midst of adversity.
      What got him in that hard and trying place was his consistent prayer life. He prayed three times a day. When decrees and governmental shifts occurred that forbade seeking a Higher Source, he did not change his communion with his God, but kept his consistency in seeking revelation.
      When jealousy and devised evil came against him, he consistently prayed. When he got in the lions’ den, I do not think he changed his consistent praying. Therefore, God sustained him in the face of what could have been catastrophe. Consistent praying overcomes our adversary!

The following prayer focus has SEVEN purposes:
  • First, may you understand covenant in a way you have never understood before.  
  • Second, may your faith be built and connected to your experiences from the past.
  • Third, may your prayer life become more consistent. 
  • Fourth, may you press through in that hard situation that seems overwhelming. 
  • Fifth, may you break through for revelation in the future. 
  • Sixth, may you gain peace in the midst of the “lions” around you. 
  • Seventh, may our Lord reveal to you that open door for your future!
How to Pray!
I want to suggest during these 21 Days that you allow the Lord to choose a fast for you and that you pray three times a day. (We have not assigned dates to each day. Please feel free to begin at Day 1 whenever you receive the prayer focus.)
Day 1: Read Jeremiah 25. Define types of captivity that seem to burden you (individuals, ministries, cites, and nations).
Day 2: Read Jeremiah 29. Praise God for His plan for the future. Let HOPE spring forth. Thank Him that He has an expected end.
Day 3: Read Jeremiah 32. Notice that Jeremiah had to buy a field as an act of faith. Ask the Lord to reveal any act of faith that He would have you do at this time in your life. Answer the question in your life: “Is there anything too hard for God?”
Day 4: Read Jeremiah 33, Romans 8. Know that God has a plan to surprise you. Call unto Him and watch Him do things you would not expect. Know that His covenant will stand. He can pray through you when you do not know what to pray.
Day 5: Read Jeremiah 31. He has many blessings for us in the new covenant.
Day 6: Read Hebrews 8. Let Him define your priestly service for the future.
Day 7: Read Genesis 12.  Understand the power of covenant.  As born again Believers, we are grafted into the covenant that God made with Abraham.  The war in the earth realm is over God’s covenant blessings.  Covenant involves promise, commitment, faithfulness, and loyalty, even unto death.  God is a covenant keeping God.  He will war through His people to maintain His covenant in the earth.  The blood of Jesus says to the enemy, “Hands off!  This is not your territory!”  Declare the same. 
Day 8: Read Genesis 15 and Romans 9.  Let faith arise and feel God’s agreement over your life. Understand how you are grafted into God’s covenant purposes.
Day 9: Read Genesis 17 and Romans 11.  See how the Lord can surprise you even when you think things seem dead. Also, know that covenant connects you to the blessings of the generations.
Day 10: Read Daniel 1. Daniel obeyed God and separated himself. Ask the Lord how to separate yourself from anything that is making you common in the world.
Day 11: Read Daniel 2. Let the Holy Spirit train you to assist in revealing supernatural wisdom to others.
Day 12: Read Daniel 3. Ask the Lord about compromise in your life. Ask for help to stand firm.
Day 13: Read Daniel 4. Let the Lord remind you of the power of dreams; may He activate the gift of interpretation in you.
Day 14: Read Daniel 5 and Psalm 37:1-5. Do not fret over evil doers around you. God has a plan.
Day 15: Read Daniel 6. Ask the Lord to reveal any plot of evil devised against you. Be at peace with your lions.
Day 16: Read Daniel 7. Bless the Ancient of Days. Let your enemies see the court that the Lord is preparing on your behalf.
Day 17: Read Daniel 8. Let angelic forces aid you in bringing Divine understanding into your situations.
Day 18: Read Daniel 9. Understand the power of identificational repentance and prayer. This is important for your bloodline, your city, our nation, etc.
Day 19: Read Daniel 10. Withstand, and embrace breakthrough.
Day 20: Read Daniel 11. Do not be afraid to see the future that the Lord has for you.
Day 21: Read Daniel 12 and Revelation 4. See your future door.
