The Prayer Blueprint for Shocking
Breakthroughs in 2017
She Had Decided on Suicide
Until This Happened...
She knew how she was going to do it.
She was going to drink a deceptively mild
but fast-acting deadly poison.
Curl up on her designer couch.
Cover herself with a blanket to keep warm.
Put her favorite music on.
And allow the poison to take her … for good.
But first …
She decided to visit that curious prayer website one more time.
She found an email address on the site.
She wrote down her plans and pressed <Send>.
Within minutes a reply came back.
With a story.
It wasn’t a dramatic story.
It was a short testimony.
It was about a woman who lost her husband.
To another woman.
The testimony had an unusual ending.
It ended with a “wicked” little prayer.
A prayer with razor-sharp teeth.
One hour later, the woman threw out the poison.
She never contemplated suicide again.
Testimonies (and the prayers that trigger them) change lives.
Testimonies send your enemies roaming the streets,
weeping and gnashing their teeth.
Testimonies bring heaven to earth.
Do you want your life full of testimonies in 2017?
If so, you must read this Blueprint to the end.
Reading time: 37 minutes.
Fun and easy reading, nothing complicated.
One little prayer was all it took for that suicidal lady to change her mind.
Yes, one prayer.
Just one prayer prayed with FIRE in your spirit…
… can (potentially) change your entire destiny in 2017.
This Will be Shorter Than Usual…I Have a Flight to Catch
Elisha Goodman Sunday, 2:30
(Prayer Trenches, City of Roses)
Calvary greetings …
The experiences of yesterday, no matter how glorious,
cannot guarantee victory in today’s battles.
The challenges of today must be confronted with something
new and fresh… big, bold, and daring.
Before we go one step further, we need to pause for prayers.
Please close your eyes and take these 3 prayers like a volcanic eruption.
#1: Let the fire of the Holy Spirit heat every area of my life in Jesus name.
quicken my spirit and supercharge my desire for the things
of Heaven in Jesus name.
#3: O LORD, let your holy fire generate power for victory in every
area my life in the name of Jesus.
Praise the LORD.
Since we’re praying about fire and power,
let me show you something I just received in my inbox…
… 4 days ago.
It is an email from a widow.
A helpless, defenseless widow.
Terrorized by thieves and robbers.
It has a “dangerous” ending...
So, I have to warn you ahead of time.
Some people might say it has a bitter-sweet taste to it.
However, I’m sharing it here for a purpose …
and that will become clearer as we go on.
*** The Widow’s Story ***
She is a widow struggling daily to provide for her children.
Thieves broke into her house for the second time this year and had a field day with her household goods.
They sprayed some chemicals to make her sleep so no one heard a sound.
She cried out to the Lord to expose these people.
Her niece joined her in prayer.
They held a prayer vigil in her church concerning her plight.
She prayed like this:
“O Lord, expose these thieves since you’re Father to the fatherless, and husband to the husbandless.”
Then she was inspired to do something.
With her last savings, she put up an electric fence with a razor wire to safeguard her home.
On Sunday, the thieves came back trying to gain access to her home.
One was electrocuted.
He died on Tuesday.
He happened to be her neighbor’s son…
We’re going to pray again ...
‘I barricade my family with the electric fence
of the Almighty in the name of Jesus.’
Now we’re ready to begin.
This is a true story. She sent me the email two days later, on the 22nd.
It is unfortunate that the young man met his untimely death in this manner.
I wish he had lived to repent and turn over a new leaf.
Now there are 3 crucial lessons here.
Crucial Lesson #1:
Prayer + Inspired Action
This widow prayed.
But she did not stop there.
She followed up with action. Inspired action.
She emptied her savings account to construct that fence.
Now, she could have done other things to avoid spending that money. After all, she did not have much to spare. But that’s what she was inspired to do.
From now on, no thief would dare set foot in that place.
The keywords here: Inspired. Action.
Throughout 2016 I talked about the need to take inspired action after prayer.
Thankfully, thousands listened … and that has released a flood of
testimonies that you will see shortly.
Crucial Lesson #2:
Prayer + The Word of God
Right here, you have an explosive combination.
She searched for the Scriptures to back up her petition before the Lord.
A father to the fatherless, a
defender of widows,
is God in his holy dwelling. – Psalm 68:5
For your Maker is your husband, the LORD of hosts is his name;
and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth
He is called. – Isa. 54:5
This is greatly important…
She combined these two verses into a ‘dangerous,’ blistering, targeted prayer… and then fused her petition to it as she cried out:
“O Lord, expose these thieves since you’re Father to the fatherless, and husband to the husbandless.”
She was asking the LORD of the heavens and earth to arise and defend her.
And answer He did.
She reminds me of two people in the Bible.
One was David.
The other? Job.
Most people do not know this…
... but one of the greatest prayer warriors in the Bible was the man Job.
His prayers were astonishing.
You have to wonder how he had such insights about the heavens, without the benefit of the space technology we have today.
No wonder the Lord specifically instructed his three erstwhile friends to go to him for deliverance prayers… in order to avoid divine judgment.
(Hint: In the upcoming prayer session, so many exciting prayers are culled
from the book of Job. You are about to have a taste of these shortly.)
Crucial Lesson #3:
Prayer + Community
You notice she did NOT pray alone.
Her niece joined her. She took it to her church. Others believers jumped in. They held a prayer vigil for her.
Now I can almost hear someone saying:
“My church is not a praying church.”
“No one would care to join me in prayer.”
Well… I can tell you this.
In 2017 a church that does not rally her members to pray and pray and pray will be like an eagle trying to fly with one wing cut off.
Though an eagle… its potentials will be severely limited.
And the membership will be exposed to unnecessary risk… and all kinds of evil attacks.
That’s the reason the LORD led us to set up the Eagles Forum last year. Each program has its own separate Forum.
All the participants sign into the Forum.
Other prayer eagles are in there day and night to lift up one another, encourage, strengthen, and join hands with you to call upon the LORD in unison.
Inside the Forum, we take this scripture seriously.
Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another
so that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous
man avails much. – James 5:16
During the upcoming prayer session, everyone gets to have a taste of what happens in there…
… as we briefly open our new community Chat Forum to the public just for this event.
Please do not dismiss the importance of being part of a battlefront praying community like this one.
Drawing from these simple lessons we share, our prayer eagles found themselves running rings around the enemy of their destiny all through 2016.
For some it was the best of years.
Yet for others… not so much.
So I will start off with this huge disclaimer.
Following the Prayer Blueprint…
"My fiance got fired,
then re-hired and promoted by same company!"
I prayed and asked God to provide my fiance with a job since he lost his previous post. In less than 30 days he received a call and he was hired by the same company that fired him and this time he was now the branch manager, not as an assistant as he was before. When praying for breakthrough in 2016, I joined the prayer-fasting asking for a brand new car. In March 2016 I bought that car. Praise the Lord. - Cebisile
"The enemy fought hard to stop me from getting married - and failed"
Jesus has done it for me. After the enemy fought my getting married, he failed. I was involved on a fatal accident twice on the same day, the day I was traveling to have my fiancée come ask for my hand in marriage from my family. My life was spared with no bruises. That night, I cried to God to show me what's fighting me, and I was shown a powerful ruler who is the strong man that was fighting me, and he wanted me dead, because all else had failed.
I closed my eyes and prayed that God would answer me by fire, because I had cried enough. Just a small fire that landed on our compound, then it spread all over the compound, and then it turned into a big blazing fire. Then a voice thundered from the fire saying, ask of me anything you want, anything at all, and it shall be done. I almost failed to speak, but I pushed the words out of my breath anyway, So I asked for two things, that my wedding would be a success, and that God would make my new family an established one in God. We just had a wonderful wedding, praise the Lord - Betsy
"We wedded - nothing is impossible with God"
I joined the Prayer Academy in February 2010 – yeah it seems like a long time but hey – Gods time is the best! I have done all the Golden Journey Levels, I have done up to the Diamond edition level of prayer, I joined and did the singles marathon, i also did the 1000 prayers for singles! Did i give up after I saw no answer? No i didn’t, i kept soldiering on because I believe our God is faithfully.
I joined this site when i was beaten black and blue – no proper job that
matched my qualification, no relationship, no man to look at me as a worth
wife. I had faced disappointment after disappointment
but but finally God gave me a husband and we wedded on the 9th of April at a
beautiful ceremony which has left everyone awed! Our God is good and so
faithful! - Eagle Dee

"Mine was a double portion"
Join me in praising Jehovah. In 2014 I participated in singles prayers. This year I got a double portion of blessings. I say double because I was converted from contract to permanent and in May this year I wedded my husband. I shout hallelujah to the most highest in Jesus name --- Rita
"Delivered from a very long and wasted relationship
I have been reading your mails for sometime now and I thank God for how far He has brought me. By the grace of God I’ve been able to get married to my childhood fiancée. The good Lord delivered me from a very long n wasted relationship n joined me together with the bone of my bones n flesh of my flesh. The devil stood up against this divine marriage, but the God of Elisha intervene at the eleventh hour. Praise the Lord. - Nana, Italy
"2016 was an incredible year of triumph for my family"
2016 has been an incredible year of triumph for my family and me. At the end of 2015 and into the beginning of the year, both of my children were out of college for lack of funds, and both US visa were cancelled. In December my son and I stormed the gates as I introduced him to the prayers from the Prayer Academy. By January he had gotten his bill for $11,000.00 cleared off and got a new visa, and a USD 7,500.00 came by scholarship.
We continued praying for his twin sister who had a outstanding bill of USD
$11,000.00, I was able to save only 6,000.00, but we kept praying. On April
30th, I got a check delivered to my office for $5,000.00 on a debt that was
10 years old, this allowed me pay off the bill, get her transcript released,
and in July got a her visa to attend school in Canada. .

"Surprised my friends and shocked my enemies"
Jehovah suprised my friends and shocked my enemies when I got a new
international job of my dreams. I went up 2 ranks from my former
position, and doubled my salary. A job I was not even qualified for but here
I am... soooo loving this job and its
renumerations. Before now people used to see me as just an assistant, paper
pusher and nothing more. Now they are asking me to get them a job. Surely our good God wipes
our tears, lifts our heads and anoints us to do the impossible. Everyday the
Holy Spirit is teaching me how to do this job and all is going on awesomely.
there another word for great joy? - Eagle MG

"If God did it for them, He will do it for me"
I didn’t know how to pray aggressively until my immediate boss introduced me to this website where I was inspired by other people’s testimonies. I said to myself, if God has done for them surely He will address my issues. My contract expired May 2015 and I was told verbally that I will continue. Surprisingly it came to an end. In December 2015 I came to know about this site and started claiming my job back and indeed He is the God of all flesh. June 2016 I was hired back.
I got into a relationship on 29 August and got married 29 October just
within 2 months. Praise the LORD - Chipo
"All the people were shocked, they never thought I could make
been believing God to become a leader in my country since 2006. For the 10
years I have been storming the gate together with other believers praying as
directed. And my God answered my prayer this year on the
18th February 2016 when I was elected as a Member of Parliament representing
my area in the National Parliament at the first time of contesting. May
God’s name be praised. All people were shocked, they never thought I could
make it because I competed with very rich people and the incumbent I removed
was using a lot of witchcraft, threatened to kill me but the Lord Jesus
Christ made me victorious despite all the challenges I went through. Three
days to elections I prayed the prayer points for success in any competition
and my God did not disappoint. - Eagle F

Scholarships too …
I bless the name of the Lord for teaching his people to pray for themselves. I applied for a training which is sponsored by the Indian government. I was called for an interview and normally a reply is sent to people who were qualified at in two weeks, but mine took more than a month. So during that period I started praying the November 7 Furious Prayers for November. I prayed: 'covenant keeping God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the places where they have rejected me, cause them to call me back and to fall over themselves to help in Jesus name.' And to God be the glory I was sent an acceptance letter direct from India not even from the mission in my country. Right now I am in India sending to you this testimony to the glory of GOD. - Lydia
Glory to God. I am from Kenya and a beneficiary of the China scholarship. We
share the same testimony mine was through the government of Kenya for
goverment officials. As for me I was not an employee and every criteria was
working against me like age, work experience, etc. but after praying the
targeted prayers God answered me and now am in China doing my PhD. People
think I had someone pushing for me but no, my Godfather is our Lord Jesus
Christ. Glory be to God -
"She didn't know I was praying for her -- for over a month!"
A friend who shared with me a situation involving her family and the immigration department,where the officer was very hostile,and insisted that she must leave the country because she is a foreigner. They held her passport, and gave her a deadline to leave as soon as the baby’s passport was issued. She has a two month old baby, and if she leaves it would lead to the family being separated. Righteous indignation encouraged me to take up the battle. I prayed, 'Oh God in the places where her file has been rejected, let them call her back and fall over themselves to help her”
She didn’t know that I was praying that kind of prayer for just over one
Praise the LORD.
So how about the others?
How did the rest of the eagles REALLY fare?
Exactly How They Prayed…
And the Answers They Received
Through these same bullets my nephew now 18 years who has suffered from a CSF leak from the age of 10 years is now completely healed in Jesus name. In August 2015 doctors recommended surgery to seal the skull where CSF was leaking through. The surgery was scheduled for November since we could not meet the cost in August.
I went down on my knees every midnight hour, took the Esther fast and pleaded with God to heal my nephew. In November we went for an MRI so as to give the surgeon a final report before the surgery. We had raised enough money through friends by then.
The radiologist could not believe his eyes. “Has surgery been done?”. He asked. We said surgery would be done after the MRI. “Are you sure that surgery was not done and that this MRI was not to confirm if the surgery was successful?” He asked.
We said surgery is yet to be done. What he said surprised me. He said.”Then you must be praying and worshipping a very powerful God, the God of Abraham, Moses, Jacob, Elijah, Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus, because there is no more CSF leak, the nasap cavity is clear, and the crack is completely sealed.”
I could not believe him. I was overwhelmed by joy. We took the report to the surgeon who gave my nephew a clean bill of health. We sought three opinions from different radiologists and surgeons and the report was the same. My nephew was healed. He was healed without surgery as recommended by doctors..Praise be to God.

I must have said this over ten times then slowly my
soul was indeed restored! I woke up and couldn’t believe I
was coming from a dream coz it had sounded so real! when I woke up I thought about the
fact that if God had not given me the grace to recall the power
in the name of Jesus,how would i have recovered my soul! Praise
When we went to the hospital they told me that my baby’s leg
was bent and that she will be disabled but the devil is a liar
my baby’s leg is perfect she is healthy and growing up very
fast. I thank God for the precious gift that He's blessed me
with. My family call her the miracle baby which she is indeed.
God is truly Great! Glory to God and praise his Holy Name… Thank you Lord for your love and
Grace. God bless you all!
All glory and honor belongs to the LORD for these testimonies.
He is the One that made all this happen.
And He is about to do it again.
Every year for the past 12 years, at about this time...
… before the New Year comes around the corner, bristling with spiritual pitfalls, and dangerous shifts that can eat most people alive...
The LORD releases a specific Blueprint for victory and success for the entire year ... to His prayer eagles who have "hearing ears" in the spirit.
We receive instructions on how to enter the "Gates" of the New Year
... and navigate our way to breakthroughs and testimonies in spite of the obstacles that conspire to murder everyone else's hopes and dreams.
The 2017 Blueprint is entitled:
Gates of Fire
What’s the Prophetic
Outlook for 2017?
We’ll start off with 2 prophetic scriptures.
Here’s the first one:
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelled there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach to heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad on the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men built. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from there on the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from there did the LORD scatter them abroad on the face of all the earth. – Gen 11:1-9
In the realm of the spirit …
Two things are going on at frenetic pace as you read this.
The first is a globe-spanning evil enterprise, whose origin we just read about in the passage above.
In a blatant opposition to the LORD’s commandment given to them in Genesis 1:28, the inhabitants of the ancient world decided to strike out in the opposite direction.
Instead of heeding the divine call to go out, subdue the earth and exercise dominion, they banded together, encouraged and stirred up one another to build that infamous tower, in a vain attempt to avoid being dispersed.
This was not just a titanic attempt to scale the heavens and to make a name for themselves. Using the best technology of the day, this whole project seemed conceived and executed as a direct affront to God.
By the way, you hear of prominent technology leaders today bragging about how they want to go to Mars and set up some type of living community out there.
Then, with more braggadocio they threaten to deploy an army of robots to take over the jobs than human beings are doing here… while reducing almost everyone to zombies.
On the surface of it, this sounds like exciting technological progress.
But underneath, implicit in their arrogant enterprise, is not so much a desire to use their vast resources to help solve any of humanity’s most pressing problems.
Their real purpose remains the same as it ever was: to look for every way possible to disprove, even discredit, the truth that we know about the Living God as the sole creator and controller of the universe…
… who has assigned us humans an important role to play right here on earth.
It should therefore come as no surprise that some of these same people are also doubling as the chief promoters of some of the worst form of sexual perversions today…
… the likes of which have not been seen since the demise of the Roman Empire centuries ago.
In all fronts, they are set on a collision course with the Almighty.
But the LORD has a way of defeating the evil enterprise.
In ancient times, 3 things happened to the evil builders.
Their language was confounded, i.e. confused.
God has power over the minds and tongues of
those striving against a divine sentence.
2. Their building project came to a screeching halt.
3. The builders were scattered.
What does that have to do with you in this 21st century?
Babel represents the sick foundation of idolatry (both ancient and modern) and all the wickedness that flows from it.
The enemy of all mankind has been busily constructing, reinforcing and repackaging ancient pagan practices into seductive new-age forms…
… and firing them like arrows into the hearts and minds of people, including believers everywhere.
With an ungodly crew of invisible demonic entities and their human helpers, their work is now reaching an advanced stage in the lives of many.
Today, no thanks to the Internet and social media, you find many believers wallowing in the filth of pornography without even a pang of conscience.
Others would do anything for money. For some, their god is their belly (hint: such people find it almost impossible to fast).
It is getting more and more difficult to tell the difference between a believer and an unbeliever, going by the way they talk, dress and act.
When we received salvation, the power of the Lord to save, to heal and to deliver became available to us. In great measure.
But lured by ignorance or feel-good gospel into a false sense of security, many believers simply stopped growing.
They were told that once saved, you’re always saved. Nothing more to do.
As a result, many became careless, and those things they were delivered from began to creep back into their lives.
Look at this verse:
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of
the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort
you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once
delivered unto the saints. Jude 1:3
In some cases, many have been unwittingly helping to rebuild the Tower of Babel in their lives.
Why would a Christian single even consider living in the same room and sleeping on the same bed with someone (of the opposite sex) that they are not married to?
Some people do know how to court disaster.
We read this:
For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. – Gal. 2:18
Here Comes A Prophetic Warning For 2017
The LORD is about to blast and bring to naught all the devices and designs of modern-day builders of Babel.
He has various means, and effective ones, to battle and defeat the projects of those who set themselves against Him.
Job 9 v 4 says this about the LORD:
He is wise in
heart, and mighty in strength:
who has hardened himself against him, and has prospered?
In fact, the hand of the LORD has gone out against them.
This year we must all get away from that which we see God fight against.
Get out of the blast zone!
For, behold, the day comes, that shall burn as an oven;
and all the proud, yes, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the
day that comes shall burn them up, said the LORD of hosts, that it shall
leave them neither root nor branch. Mal 4:1
I pray you take this prophetic warning seriously.
You will spare yourself from most of the troubles waiting to trip up the
rest of humanity this year.
Onwards… to the next scripture.
One day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came with them. The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?”
Satan answered the Lord, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.”
Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.”
“Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.”
The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.”
Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.
One day when Job’s sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house, a messenger came to Job and said, “The oxen were plowing and the donkeys were grazing nearby, and the Sabeans attacked and made off with them. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!”
While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, “The fire of God fell from the heavens and burned up the sheep and the servants, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!”
While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, “The Chaldeans formed three raiding parties and swept down on your camels and made off with them. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!”
While he was still speaking, yet another messenger came and said, “Your sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house, when suddenly a mighty wind swept in from the desert and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on them and they are dead, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!”
At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship. – Job 1: 6-20
Hmmm. The fire of God fell from heaven.
Now we now know what actually transpired.
Yet there is a perspective I want you to consider today.
When you follow the narrative, you will realize that it is almost as if someone ‘flipped’ a switch in the spirit realm … against Job and his family.
One day, everything was going fine and dandy.
Next day, their whole world turned upside down.
Without so much as a warning, the man Job was pushed into the gates of fire.
If you were somehow in a position to observe him close up… maybe as one of his neighbors, or even as someone who lived in the same community or worshipped at the same church…
… you would have been left scratching your head in puzzlement.
How could this happen to such a godly man?
As many modern-day intellectuals in the secular world (and even in the church) would ask:
How could a loving God allow such calamity to befall anyone?
(As an exercise, google the words ‘why does God allow…’ and see what comes up.)
I just googled and what do I get?
About 4,060,000 results (0.46 seconds)
Without spiritual understanding, so many are stumbling at that question.
Remember I just said it’s as if someone FLIPPED A SWITCH?
As a matter of fact, someone did.
Stealthily. Behind the scenes. Away from human eyes.
The gates of fire were opened.
The fire of affliction has been a reality throughout human history since the fall of Adam in the garden.
So many people reading this are even now in the fiery furnace – satanically orchestrated, to be sure – through no fault of their own.
Like the 3 Hebrew children in Daniel chapter 3.
But here’s the good news…
The LORD is about to open the gates … for you to walk out of the fire.
Hear that again:
You are about to walk out of the fire.
After all is said and done, the unspeakable horrors that Job went through became the training ground that helped launch him like a rocket into a higher realm of power, blessings and dominion.
Not to mention that it burnished his credentials as one of the finest prayer eagles to ever walk the earth.
How about the 3 Hebrew children?
Once they walked out of the gates of fire, they stepped right into shocking divine promotion.
Their great deliverance sparked a national spiritual revival, even as the
bedazzled king hastily set forth a new decree:
Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. Therefore I decree that the people of any nation or language who say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego be cut into pieces and their houses be turned into piles of rubble, for no other god can save in this way.” – Dan 3:28 - 29
Please close your eyes and take this prayer with a holy shout:
My problems shall become my promotion in the name of Jesus.
What is the prophetic equivalent of walking out of the gates of fire today?
If you take these lessons to heart, the LORD is about to use the 14-day prayers starting December 30 to open the gates of fire…
… for you to step through victoriously to dominion and divine promotion in 2017.
There’s Something Else …
When men built their Babel, the LORD released confusion into their midst.
He did not want this thing built.
But today there is something the LORD wants you to build.
And here it is:
But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.– Jude 20-23
Notice some important key phrases here (paraphrased):
- Build yourself up in your faith
- Pray in the Spirit
- Keep yourself under the umbrella of God’s mercy
- Then help to snatch others from the fire
On the last point…
Many years ago, I was deep in the fires of affliction.
Those were dark, dark days … with no sign of relief.
I would look at this scripture and wonder:
We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet:
neither is there among us
any that knows how long. – Psalm 74:9
When the LORD eventually delivered me, He gave me this mandate to help snatch others out of the fire.
That’s when it dawned on me…
You can only be as effective at snatching others from the fire when you yourself have passed through the fire.
No wonder the Bible says:
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. – James 1:4
As you step through the gates of fire…
Lives will be transformed.
Situations will be changed.
You will be catapulted to the realm of signs and wonders all through this year.
How to Pray into 2017
Here’s the order of events:
Level 0 - Storming the Gate of 2017 (public event for all)
Level 1 - Prayer Academy (New members – access required)
Level 2 - Sapphire 2017 Edition (PA Graduates – access required)
How To Be An Overcomer
With This Year’s Prayers
As we approach the start of the program on December 30, 2016, there are 2 simple, but VERY crucial, steps you must take, if you really want to see the finger of God manifest speedily on your behalf:
Simple Step #1:
Make Doubly Sure JESUS
Is In the Driver’s Seat of Your Boat
"Not by works of righteousness which we have done,
but according to his mercy he saved us..." - Titus 3:5
No matter how far you may have strayed from the LORD this year, He wants you back NOW.
He is able and willing to forgive your sins, cleanse you and give you a fresh new start in 2017... if only you'd go on your knees and cry out for His mercy NOW.
YES, it is up to you to open the door of your heart for Him to come in and do a work of transformation in your life right now.
Please take a moment to do this, if you need to. … before you even think of
Simple Step #2:
All Secret Sins Must Go
(And I Do Mean ALL)
Realize that God sees your heart even now as you read this. He knows what you do in secret. Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins, mine… and that of the whole world.
Of course this might sound like foolishness to the people of the world (in the secular world I meet “sophisticated” people all the time who say so).
But you know the Bible says:
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,
but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. – 1 Cor.1:18
Since you have read up to this point, I believe you are NOT one of those who are perishing. So, let me congratulate you for that…
About our Lord Jesus Christ, we are assured this:
Who His own self bare our sins
in His own body on the tree ... - 1 Peter 2:24
Unto him that loved us, and washed us
from our sins in his own blood - Rev. 1:5
If you are new to this…
I must alert you that if you follow these 2 simple steps above with all sincerity … before even firing the opening shots, you may not be able to handle the flood of peace and joy that will invade your heart ...
… not to mention the testimonies to follow.
Last year by this time I challenged those who went through these simple steps diligently to get ready for an overflow of breakthroughs in their lives.
They were NOT disappointed.
Before we got to DAY 4 of the program, our testimony inbox was filling up so fast we had to redirect people to go to the blog to post their testimonies under the COMMENT section with their own hands!
Praise the LORD who delights in answering the prayers of His people.

Here's Your 14-Day Prayer
Plan At The Gate of 2017
This year we will begin our close-out prayers at the midnight hour of Friday, December 30.

A total of 14 days.

Level 2 will be announced at this time.

The Proper Way to Break a Fast
(Suggestion only – not medical advice !)
You should not eat heavy meals at least 2 days before a long fast. Rather you should take MORE fruits and drink a lot of water.
When you break your fast, you should never break with solid food. You must break slowly. DO not take any cold water or drinks. Warm water is preferable. Eat fruits such as oranges, paw-paw, etc. for a while and drink a lot of water before attempting to eat any solid food.
When you have been on a long fast, you will need some days to slowly break. For instance, if you fasted for 7 days, you’ll need another 3 days to slowly break – meaning in the following 3 days you should be on a diet of fruits and water, before introducing any heavy food.
This is because the end of a long fast is the most delicate time of a fast. For those who did not conquer their appetite during the fast, there is a danger that they might overeat right after the fast, thereby causing severe problems for themselves.
In the event of that happening, quickly stop eating and begin another fast
without food and water for at least 2 days and you should be alright.
Let me repeat this: Please NOTE that this is not a medical prescription.
Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking any action that could affect your health. What I have just said here should NOT be taken as medical advice.
Now to the prayers…
All the prayers should be prayed AT THE MIDNIGHT HOUR. You should also find time during the day to continue with the prayers.
If, however, because of your work schedule, you are not able to pray at the midnight hour, then you should pray VERY early in the morning before 6:00 AM.
No excuses please.
If you do this diligently, you will surely experience the visitation of the LORD, the One who ordained this program.
Finally it is time to review our yearly message to prepare us for the gate
of the New Year...
--> Start of Review
Here’s the VERY first one.
And you need to apply it diligently at the “gate” i.e. midnight
as Dec 31, 2016 transitions into Jan 1, 2017.
If you're ready, let's go...
"O LORD, open my spiritual understanding today
We’ll take off by looking at the popular story of the ten virgins. In Matthew 25:1-10 we read:
"Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut."
This is a familiar story.
Two phrases are of particular interest to us here:
At midnight there was a cry made...
It is also a time when satanic cries are made against people by
the evil powers operating along the bloodlines of their
"Lift up your head, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory."
Again we see the word “doors” but this time, at the appearance of a Superior, Sovereign Power...
… Instead of being shut, the door (and gates) are being commanded to “open.”
Putting what we’ve read so far together, we arrive at the inescapable conclusion that doors can be opened and shut in the spiritual realm.
In many places in the Bible, we see references to doors and gates.
For instance, we find them at the at the entry point to cities
(1 Kings 17), temples (Acts 3), prisons (Acts 12), and palaces
Honor was bestowed at the gate. Blessings were pronounced at the gate… and curses were issued as punishment for offences at the gate.
In fact, the gate played such a pivotal role in the life of any community that in times of war…
The enemy’s first order of business was to seize control of the gate!
What’s this got to do with the New Year?
You can liken the New Year to a well-fortified city with a strong gate.
The gate is the entry point into the city.
For the purpose of this conversation...
Notice that I used the word, ‘supposed’… that is what should happen in an ideal situation...
The reality, however, is that for most people, the gate of the New Year never opens to them spiritually… it remains tightly shut against them year after year, often without their knowledge!
Why is this so?
The Bible reveals that there are invisible “horsemen setting themselves in array at the gate” (Isaiah 22:7).
And here's the SECRET:
The entrance or gate to the New Year is the midnight hour between December 31 and January 1st.
The truth remains that this gate is the point of the hottest spiritual battle you can think of.
Whoever takes control of that gate in the crucial first few seconds of the New Year determines what happens throughout the entire year!
What I’m sharing with you is well-understood by the children of darkness. No wonder our Lord Jesus once said (in Luke 16:8b):
… for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
At the critical midnight hour of between December 31st and January 1st the children of this world (darkness) that Jesus is referring to here will be busy taking off in their evil aircraft and making evil prophetic pronouncements to renew age-old bondages…
… capture the entire year (and shut the gates of the next 12 months against ignorant people).
At this exact same time, most modern day believers will be dancing and partying the night away!
Unknown to them, at this critical hour of midnight when the new year is being “delivered” (think of a woman in labor), whatever decrees are issued (good or bad) have the capacity to alter the destiny of an individual, family or nation.
You remember how many prophecies of greatness that Christians usually receive at the beginning of every year?
How many of them ever come to pass?
You know why?
At the most critical first few seconds of the New Year, the enemy gets busy "shutting the gate" and cancelling those prophecies by issuing ungodly decrees against people, using words anointed with satanic power!
· Doors of opportunity remained tightly shut throughout the year.
· The heavens refuse to open and pour out the expected blessings in abundance.
· Divine benefits refused to manifest...
· Divine helpers were nowhere to be found…
· Most prayers went unanswered... leaving many believers scratching their heads.
If you keep records of all the wonderful prophecies received every New Year (like I do) you’ll realize that most of them NEVER come to pass.
It doesn't matter how many great men or women of God prophesied.
Because most Christians allow the enemy (either out of ignorance or sheer laziness) to take control of the GATES when it mattered most…
... at the critical moment of transition… when most people are in slumber.
You see, in the spiritual realm, just one second’s delay can cost a person an entire year.
Like the prayer bullets you will see shortly, if you were to pray them at any other time of the year, you won’t achieve the same results [except in very few cases which we will discuss at various times during the year in the Members’ Forum].
Thankfully, the Lord has not left us ignorant about this matter.
12 years ago He gave us a battle plan which has never failed.
If we execute on this plan diligently...
These 90 minutes AT THE GATE can save you 9 months of frustration, disappointment and sorrow.
A Housekeeping Note
At this point I'm inspired to release the power of the spoken blessing on a VERY special group of people on this site... they are silent co-laborers with me in the Vineyard.
Here’s one of them:
“Yes, indeed you never asked for any tithe/offering. The Holy Spirit laid it
in my spirit to tithe to your ministry and indeed I obeyed. I've never
lacked anything ever since. I've grabbed the revelation of obedience in
financial giving. My husband and I are debt free as I'm writing. This is one
area where God is using me & I'm excited. I give to your ministry because my
Father in heaven instructed me so & I'm happy to please Him.”
– Eagle GW
Such dear people operating in stealth mode help make
testimonies like this happen:
“I Had Already Given Up On Life,
I thank God that I came to know about your site i usually say it
was a real divine connection. I had already given up in
life to a point that i had declared to commit suicide.
Since then i have really seen God i am totally encouraged and i
have come to know that God loves His people and He can use
anything to save you like He did to me.

5. For All Others
Please allow me to get
something off my chest
If I were to be your pastor, coach or mentor … you and everyone else would get at least a taste of being a prayer eagle.
It will taste bitter to most people. And that's fine. No harm, no foul.
But for some... it will be SWEET nectar.
A thrill like nothing else they've ever experienced before.
Seeking to become a true prayer eagle will take you places in 2017 ... and RELEASE to you things that were previously denied, delayed or diverted to someone else.
As you may already know, if you want to excel at anything you need some TRAINING.
Without proper training, you will just be beating the air... ... and wasting YOUR time.
Please decide to take the time to learn HOW to pray result-oriented prayers in 2017.
It took me 16 long weary years to pray the way I teach here … longer than it took me to get through school up to the graduate level and beyond ... and I'M STILL LEARNING.
After performing miracles and walking with Jesus day in and day out, the
"Lord, teach us to pray,
just as John taught his disciples."
If you are NOT greater than the disciples who walked, worked and lived with Jesus, you too should learn to PRAY.
Make that a priority this year. It is never too late to start.
FIRST Prayer Academy for 2017 is just around the corner.
If you have never joined, I can't begin to tell you what you're missing.
Just 3 weeks into the program, and you will understand why some prayers are not answered...
... so you can AVOID these mistakes.
