The Prayer Blueprint for Shocking
Breakthroughs in 2016
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 favourite 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 2016?
If so, you NEED to read this Blueprint to the end.
Reading time: 57 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 used very specifically at the midnight hour…
… can (potentially) change your entire destiny in 2016.
I’m Going to Make it Short- We All Have Things to Do
(Prayer Trenches, City of Roses)
Calvary greetings …
All prayer eagles must be ready.
That’s why the past year was one continuous prayer marathon after another.
The LORD wants His people to be equipped to deal with anything the enemy throws at them.
In 2015 many who denied the reality of spiritual warfare were forced to experience the results of their denial.
And it was not always pretty.
When faced with any form of adversity, they were incapable of handling it, even confused that someone who is “born again” should have to face adversity at all.
Not so the prayer eagles who passed through the (somewhat) rigorous training that goes on here week after week.
All glory to God.
They prayer eagles made the bed for others to lie on.
Apart from rising swiftly to the occasion whenever the enemy reared its ugly head – whether to steal or destroy their family, finances, marriage, or whatever …
… they also mounted daring assaults deep into enemy territory to TAKE BACK what the enemy had stolen from them in their days of prayerlessness and ignorance.
In the course of their prayer campaigns, with the LORD leading the charge, they went about setting the captives free, smashing age-old strongholds, putting demons to flight, and restoring life, joy and gladness where before there was devastation and death.
What exactly was the nature of their exploits?
The main concerns of our prayer eagles eventually came down to this:
Main Concern #1:
How do you remain connected to the power source of heaven in a day-to-day, practical sense, especially in a world that hates the unvarnished gospel of Jesus Christ with perfect hatred… in an age where more and more people prefer entertainment as a substitute?
How do you personally receive divine guidance, direction and strength daily, while everyone else is running around in confusion, deceiving and being deceived?
Main Concern #2:
Are you receiving your portion of divine blessings that the LORD is releasing to His children daily? Most believers leave huge amounts their daily benefits on the table, never realizing the potential windfall just waiting to fall into their laps.
Main Concern #3:
How do you signal to the devil and all his cohorts of darkness that your life is no longer their candidate? When I say “your life” what I mean is your family inclusive – your children, loved ones, spouse, finances, health, your calling and ministry – the whole works.
Once you are able to do this for yourself and your immediate community of loved ones (and taste the results), then you can begin to push outwards – from your Jerusalem, to your Judea and on to the uttermost parts of the earth, just like the first century disciples.
Following our Blueprint…
Many singles were able to take back their marital destiny:
“Praise God for the spiritual mentoring and nourishment that you give us because for me I have been blessed to a level where God’s hand has actually lifted me from grass to grace.
Two years back me and my fiancé planned a wedding that flopped 2 months to the wedding. It stressed and tore me apart and I cried and lamented to God, ”why me?” Because I didn’t know by then how to claim back what the enemy had stolen from me but Hallelujah and glory to the mighty God that this year I joined the PA in June through which my hands have been trained for spiritual war.
In October 25th 2015 God released a double portion of his blessings upon us and we finally had a powerful wedding that to this day our enemies are still in shock. Praise God once again for your ministry that is drawing many of us closer to God than before.”
“It was after the 21-day prayer marathon like what we are having now… I remember we were focusing on hearing from God. I stated my intentions for participating in the prayer program and I remember asking God for a spouse. I needed to hear from the Lord.
I had questions like, should I get married or not? If yes, to who? On the
last day of the program after my last prayers at 12noon, I laid back on the
bed in total silence as I didn't have energy to do anything. I was
Then all of a sudden I heard the name of one of the brothers in church. I
got alert and heard it again. I jumped off the bed and thanked the Lord with
all smiles. That day I went to the evening meeting where I was meant to meet
other singles for an outing.
That brother had just joined my church. I didn't know him much but I believed the word of God. We got married that same year in Dec 13. Isn't the Lord so good? Just encouraging the singles waiting on the Lord. You will testify in Jesus name.”
Others prayed, broke the stranglehold of debt, and then walked free:
“Man of God I thank God for raising you to teach us to pray. God richly bless you always. We run a grocery business and from the beginning of the year we were owing about $1.1 million US dollars to our suppliers. Things were not well for us but today I write this fearing God who has cleared all that debt.
Our shops are well stocked and we are debt free. As if not enough we found out today that there is an account where our money was piling over the years that we knew nothing of, about $70 000 US dollars, money coming from everywhere. Job 22:24 is the verse that you gave us in the Platinum Edition. What an amazing God we serve. HE answers prayers indeed.”
– Linista M
Many MORE prayed and received deliverance from spirit spouses:
Praise God Almighty. Since l joined here and leaned how to pray aggressively my life changed completely. Jesus Christ delivered me from spiritual spouse, talkativeness, anger, hatred, bitterness, doubt, the list goes on. He cleansed me from inside out.
For the first time in my life, my family travelled abroad. I’m in love with JESUS Christ. l never knew he can speak to His children. A wonderful journey many are missing being led by the Holy Spirit. God has opened my spiritual eyes and ears. Now I’m completely in Jesus Christ. My Heavenly Father healed me and filled me with everlasting love.
Then there were those who prayed and took back their finances and MORE
I participated in the Prayer Academy, Spousewell and Golden Journey. God has answered all my prayers. I got a job that pays me more than double what I used to get. I got married to a humble and God fearing man and we have been blessed with a sweet daughter. All these in 2015. Praise the Lord.
Many broke the backbone of stagnancy and walked away with divine promotion:
“I started being serious with the midnight prayers in September. I rededicated my life to Jesus and stopped sinning (sleeping with my boyfriend and watching pornography). I did the 7 Furious Prayers for September. End of September I was called for an interview.
My career had been stagnant for over 3 years. In fact it was going down. With the current economic situation in my country it was almost impossible to get a job. I passed the first interview, went on to the 2nd interview with a higher panel interview.
All I can say is that God helped me pass all stages to get the job. I have since been given an offer letter. I will now be earning a salary twice what I have been earning before, as well as use a utility vehicle.”
- Brenda T
* * *
At my place of work, I had stagnated without promotion for over 25 years, and like the crippled man at the pool, when an opportunity would arise I was always left out. There is a newsletter that was posted on the Firesprings website and Brother Elisha was using Psalms 75:6-7 to explain the issues about promotion.
This newsletter changed my perspective of how to approach my dilemma about promotion. The Holy Spirit moved me to craft this prayer bullet which I would pray along the “9 prayers for promotion”:
“O Lord dispatch both the angelic and human players to activate and carry out your word concerning my promotion situation, in Jesus Name.”
As a result of these prayers, a new position which has not been there before, has been created within my department and I was appointed to this new position, with a salary attachment almost doubling my previous salary, plus the convenience and other accompanying benefits, thanks to our Lord Jesus.
– John K
Some prayed, received their breakthroughs and turned around to help others:
“I thank God the chance to know this site. 2 of my former colleagues where I was an intern introduced me a year ago. After Esther Fast two times I got a job. After seeing successful results I shared with my sister who later met her fiancé and got married to a pastor in less than a year.”
- Faith K
No More Panic: Now armed to the teeth to deal with any emergency…
Elisha, I thank God for your presence in my life. The Prayer Cookbook taught me about the Esther Fast last year while we desired the fruit of the womb. And 11 days later I had a positive pregnancy test.
Fast forward to last night, I woke up to my baby's high temperature. I
remembered the email in which a mom prayed for her son. I immediately
commanded the stars into war. I prayed bullets from the Cover. The Holy
Spirit led me to another bullet which says:
I SLAY THE DRAGON BREATHING FIRE UNTO MY BABY'S BODY IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
I prayed on for an hour and worshiped for another hour! God came through for me. The fever left her body, even now 11 hours later, there is no fever! He is Jehovah Rapha, the healer! Praise the Lord.
- Mercy K
Praise the Lord. I thank God for healing my son this evening from strange sickness out of nowhere. All of a sudden my son who is 2 years was running temperature and crying, “my head is paining me.”
I prayed this prayer: Spirit of resurrection breathe life into my child body from the crown of his head to the sole of his feet in Jesus name. I prayed repeatedly and anointed his head, under his feet and pour the oil in his navel and prayed that any evil internal altars inside him should be consumed by fire in Jesus name.
In less than 20 minutes he became calm and then vomited. Afterwards he started playing and active again. The Lord is a saviour and will save us always. I thank God and will not miss the 21 days fasting and prayer.
Praise the LORD.
So how about the others?
How did the rest of the eagles REALLY fare?
How They Prayed…
And the Answers They Received
I got a new heart on Wednesday 12/08/2015. I had a heart problem I had been nursing as far back as 2003 (12 Years), maybe I even had the problem before then but that was the time I knew I had the problem. (While on 25Km race, I gassed out and fainted in the course of the race and I was formerly diagnosed of a heart problem).
I started speaking in tongues but this soreness continued for
good 3 days. On the 4th day, the pain just vanished and the Holy
Spirit told me I already had a NEW HEART just as prayer point No
2 prayer bullet of “7 Furious Prayer for the Month of August
It said, “Every internal barrier be uprooted, be flushed out
of my life in Jesus name.”.
Since then, my heart had resumed it’s functions properly. I jog and do exercise now without breathing through my mouth like before. Oh Lord, how wonderful are your powers in my life!!! I remained grateful perpetually both in this world and the world to come! Praise to the “Self-Existing God”, “The first and the last, beside whom there is no other.”
-- Busola A
Before I started with the prayers, I wrote on a page all things I desired and everything I wanted out of my life. And well I’m blessed to say that at the end of only 3 months of prayer I had ticked everything in that page. Glory be to God.
I laugh at problems now because I know that there is a solution. Jesus is the solution. He is taking me from GLORY to GLORY.
Every time the devil tries his tricks I take him to heaven – MY HOME GROUND where I’m seated with Christ on God’s right hand.
- RM, South Africa
October 2013 my son was in a terrible accident. half of his brain was left in the automobile and the Dr. told me that he would not live, that he would die. I just want to thank you for this prayer:
“O GREAT PHYSICIAN BY THE POWER WHICH YOU ARE KNOWN TO BE GOD ARISE AND HEAL JR. BOOKER’S BRAIN IN THE NAME OF JESUS”.
Today Jr is doing fine. Just last week we had a plate put in and he had a bad seizure. I fired that bullet and they took him to NICU and placed him on the ventilator for 24 hours. Now he is home and doing well.
I bless God for you and your prayer bullets. His right arm does not move at all but just like God brought him out of this I truly trust that God will heal his arm. Man said he would die. God said no. I tell my testimony everywhere I go.
He had no insurance and the hospital bill was 1.2 million USA
dollars. A year later we got a bill for 35.00. God knows how to
wipe out debt. I am in the process of starting the JR. Booker
Brain Injury Awareness Program to help other Brain Injury
Patients and their families. Praise the LORD.
A colleague introduced me to the Elisha Goodman Ministry in 2014. I immediately registered for free and started getting free e-books, emails and lots of prayer material. I didn’t have money to register for Prayer Academy but the free material was all I needed for my breakthrough.
I had a lot of debt, I was praying for God to open doors and
take me to the next level in my career. True to God’s style,
miracles happened and I was able to settle all my debts…..the
grindstone of debt around my neck is broken.
Then in a last minute breakthrough, I got a new job which is
very senior and I start in January 2016. This is not an ordinary
promotion. My breakthrough came through midnight prayers and
firing prayer bullet like a machine gun, fasting (Esther fast),
seeking God first, knowing that if I find Him I find my treasure
and striving to live a clean and holy life that is pleasing to
I stormed the gates of 2015, I repented of my sins, uprooted
ancestral strongholds and fixed my eyes on Him. God has been and
continues to be amazing. The power in the name and blood of
Jesus is the only weapon I need. Through His son, God is doing
amazing things in my life. To God be the glory.
started with 27 minutes to midnight on December 31st 2014 and
have never turned back. I finished prayer academy and have been
following with all the 7 Furious Prayers. I have taken back many
blessings as follows:
I have been married for past 21 years most of it was vey very rocky for I had disobeyed God’s command at the very beginning and was yoked to an unbeliever. A few years ago he got saved but still problems persisted.
However after the Golden Journey earlier this year God showed me in a dream that he had heard my prayers and was going to remove all the old garbage in our lives which was creating the stubborn problems.
Taking a cue from the 24-Hour Forum I began to pray for other marriages at my local church. Believers over the last several weeks it is as I have a new husband: he is now patient, kind and considerate. Praise the Lord.
“No More Thoughts of Suicide”
It’s all victory in Jesus name. I used to live a prayer-less life, a life of full of hopelessness, doubt about the power of God and disbelief in God. Though I used to go to church, to me it was like God never existed. My life was full of problems and all through thoughts of suicide kept coming to my mind – My father committed suicide when I was in college.
A friend introduced me to your website when my daughter was very sick and the doctors could not diagnose the sickness. I joined the Prayer Academy when my daughter was admitted in hospital with the strange disease. By the time I was completing the academy in July 2014, things were different.
My daughter was miraculously healed. The problems I was going through at my place of work were over. Come the blood moon prayers more miracles - a nephew confessed that he has been using witchcraft powers for years with other family members and he was led through deliverance. Another nephew who had disappeared from home 10 years ago came back.
For more than 10 years I was applying for jobs without any
feedback. Now for the first time I was invited to attend an
interview, and I was given the job. God restored my peace and
He’s given me hope in life - no more thoughts of committing
Head Surgery Cancelled –
My son was diagnosed with meningitis in July this year and admitted in hospital for two weeks. He recovered and just when he was about to be discharged the doctors discovered that he had a CSF leak through his nose.
I thank God for the day a friend introduced me to the Prayer
Academy. I joined in October this year while we were still
organising for funds for the surgery. The fundraising was a
great success praise be to God. We raised more money than we
needed for his surgery.
Doctors recommended more tests just before we scheduled the
surgery. I was doing lesson 3 last week and I fired the bullets
with holy anger and aggression at the midnight hour. I also went
on an Esther Fast for his healing.
This was the report "previously seen 1.5mm bone defect and CSF
in the ethnoid no longer seen. No evidence of csf leak."
Isn't that God? Doctors have ruled out surgery and recommended we observe him for sometime. There is no more csf leak and no surgery. My son is healed in Jesus mighty name!
God just did it for me, a miracle! Praised be his holy name.”
Celestine from the City of Prayer Warriors
Praise God prayer Eagles. I joined the Prayer Academy this year
in March and God has been a blessing to me ever since through
various breakthroughs. I also participated at the Golden
Journey level 3 prayers.
To my surprise on Tuesday 22nd one day to complete the prayers I received a letter of promotion at my place of work. I have been praying for this promotion for the last FIVE YEARS!!!
I lost my job July 2004 and was struggling with my 2 kids. A friend took us in for 2 months but we had to move again. We moved to a one roomed flat but even then without a job it was a struggle to make ends meet.
Thinking through my problems one day, I remembered brother elisha’s website which I promptly visited and my life changed for the better. I started doing midnight prayers using every prayer point I found in my email from brother elisha coupled with Esther Fast and I can confidently say God has been good to me.
October I started a well paying job where I am getting double the salary I was getting from my previous job, my prayer life has been catapulted from the valley to the mountain top. I am moving to a new and bigger house, and have just received a marriage proposal! Praise the LORD.
A sister who was being sexually defiled in her dreams testified that she issued a divorce certificate to her attackers and this brought an end to the siege.
I took a cue from this testimony because I had a similar problem. Women of different types and shades visiting me sexually in my dreams. Some I resisted but in most cases I was weak to their advances.
I applied the sister's testimony to my situation, waking up several nights to issue a bill of divorce sealed with the blood of Jesus to these marauders.
I vehemently and angrily declared that I carry in me death for anyone of them that approaches me again. It has been more than three weeks now and the siege has finally stopped. Thank you for leading me to that sister's testimony. To God be the glory. Amen.
These testimonies are worth their weight in gold!
All the glory belongs to God ...
as He continues to prove to us that HE is the same yesterday, today and
Now There’s A flip Side To All This…
It Was NOT All Rosy Out There
As our prayer eagles were actively plundering the camp of the enemy, the devil and his wicked army were not sleeping.
If anything, they intensified their attacks on the human race… stealing, killing and destroying as fast as they could.
They came out in full force… causing serious havoc, spreading desolation and planting diseases on unsuspecting people, often while they were asleep.
Look at this ugly one:
I humbly request for 40 HIV AIDS healing prayer points to pray for my relative who is born again.
The status came about when she had a dream that some people told her that they play the game called "we inflict you with HIV AIDS". Suddenly she saw a chain running from her feet upwards towards her head binding her, very fast in a circular manner. When she saw the cycle was about to enclose her completely, she shouted Jesus and she woke up before it enclosed her. She was born again that time.
A few days latter she started to develop pain and large swollen
lymph nodes in the neck, she visited a doctor who told her that
the swollen lymph nodes was because she has the HIV AIDS. She
Please permit me to repeat something I said last year at this time on these same pages:
“You see how the enemy continued to wage a bloody warfare against the children of God… and quite successfully too. The cohorts of darkness were able to wade into many lives, shoot them in the guts, spill their blood … rip open their bellies.
They deployed a sophisticated army of serpents against the people of God to the extent that many found themselves losing one battle after another, overwhelmed by a multitude of problems that seemed to hit them out of nowhere, without giving any breathing space.
It saddened me to see how the devil was able to succeed, time after time, in laying deadly ambush and waging fierce battles against believers … even while many of them were in the middle of prayers.
Perhaps that was one of the reasons the LORD kept us on our toes all year… moving from one breakthrough program to the other.
A believer has to be alert in the spirit all the time if s/he expects to
keep on breathing. If not, some serpentine power will sneak up behind
him/her in the dream and inject them with poison to paralyze their spiritual
lives. After that, all the hordes of hell will move in and finish off the
In spite of that stark-naked, early-warning tip-off many Christians preferred to bury their head in the sand… like the proverbial ostrich.
Obviously I can’t force anyone to take what I’m sharing here to heart.
However, I can remind you of the time (and heavenly lifestyle) you might be squandering by delaying to jump into the prayer trenches early as the New Year dawns with the rest of the eagles.
For many believers reading this, the biggest impediment to their healing, success and growth is NOT the devil.
Never has been.
It is something much, much simpler.
And quite simple to fix once you’re willing to follow simple biblical
instructions (notice I didn’t say EASY, just simple).
There’s A Dangerous
Misunderstanding About This
Please don’t get me wrong on this.
The devil and his cohorts (both human and demonic) are formidable foes… and will continue to be so until the Lord Jesus returns to fix them for good.
Until then… they have you (and everyone else) in their crosshairs.
Just look at the train-wreck marriages and relationships, even in the church.
Not to mention what’s going on in the area of faith… they have succeeded in making a shipwreck of the faith of many.
Your only defense against this ugly, dare-devil assault on everything you hold dear is called the HIDDEN PATH.
The Hidden Path (which we’ll get into in a moment) doesn’t just help you survive the battle for your destiny…
… it helps to eliminate all opposition without you having to fire a shot!
Here’s the problem though:
Most people have NEVER heard about this Hidden Path to effortless victory, though they’ve been born again for decades.
Some are only aware of bits and pieces of it.
And so can only wage a sporadic, ineffective war of attrition – where they win today, but the enemy cancels their victory the next day.
And on and on it goes.
This mistake is very common.
If you fall victim in 2016 (God forbid), you’re going to charge into battle …
… and watch the bullets punch through your body armor like it’s a paper suit.
That will not be your portion in Jesus’ name.
However this matter is so urgent that the Holy Spirit has mandated me to blow the trumpet once again… and sound an alarm at the gate of 2016.
So before we go one step further, we need to pause for prayers.
Please close your eyes and take these four prayers like a volcanic
#1: Any serpent in my family line, lose your power and die in the name of Jesus.
#2: Red mark of divine favour, overshadow my life now in the name of Jesus.
#3: O LORD, place in my hand the rod of divine inheritance so I can
possess all my
possessions in Jesus name.
#4: O Arm of the LORD, arise and deliver my generations in the name of Jesus.
Praise the LORD.
Now we’re ready to begin.
What’s the Prophetic Outlook for 2016?
In the realm of the spirit, the LORD is releasing an unusual anointing to…
Rebuild … Rebuild … Rebuild...
It is an anointing to rebuild things that had been thrown down, devastated and destroyed out of all shape and recognition.
It is a strong anointing to rebuild the old waste places previously overrun by the enemy.
It is a hidden anointing for a fresh, new wave of Christian entrepreneurship (this will all be clear in a moment).
First, let’s situate this in scripture.
We take two readings from the Old Testament book of Nehemiah and round out with one reading from the gospels.
The Old Testament readings will give us the proper context while the New Testament verses will open to us the Hidden Path, and show us how to do this successfully.
We begin with Nehemiah’s prayer:
The words of Nehemiah son of Hakaliah:
In the month of Kislev in the twentieth year, while I was in the citadel of Susa, Hanani, one of my brothers, came from Judah with some other men, and I questioned them about the Jewish remnant that had survived the exile, and also about Jerusalem.
They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.”
When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Then I said:
“Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father’s family, have committed against you. We have acted very wickedly toward you. We have not obeyed the commands, decrees and laws you gave your servant Moses.
“Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, but if you return to me and obey my commands, then even if your exiled people are at the farthest horizon, I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for my Name.’
“They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.”
I was cupbearer to the king. – Nehemiah 1:1-11
Now, was this prayer answered?
Let’s read a little bit more:
In the month of Nisan in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, when wine was brought for him, I took the wine and gave it to the king. I had not been sad in his presence before, so the king asked me, “Why does your face look so sad when you are not ill? This can be nothing but sadness of heart.”
I was very much afraid, but I said to the king, “May the king live forever! Why should my face not look sad when the city where my ancestors are buried lies in ruins, and its gates have been destroyed by fire?”
The king said to me, “What is it you want?”
Then I prayed to the God of heaven, and I answered the king, “If it pleases the king and if your servant has found favor in his sight, let him send me to the city in Judah where my ancestors are buried so that I can rebuild it.”
Then the king, with the queen sitting beside him, asked me, “How long will your journey take, and when will you get back?” It pleased the king to send me; so I set a time.
I also said to him, “If it pleases the king, may I have letters to the governors of Trans-Euphrates, so that they will provide me safe-conduct until I arrive in Judah? And may I have a letter to Asaph, keeper of the royal park, so he will give me timber to make beams for the gates of the citadel by the temple and for the city wall and for the residence I will occupy?”
And because the gracious hand of my God was on me, the king granted my requests. So I went to the governors of Trans-Euphrates and gave them the king’s letters. The king had also sent army officers and cavalry with me. – Nehemiah 2:1-9
Welcome To the Nehemiah Year -
A Year to Rebuild What Had Been Destroyed
Build Brand New Things
That Did Not Even Exist Before
Here’s the back story:
The book of Nehemiah tells the story of a man of the same name and his work in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, which had been destroyed during the Babylonian conquest.
As a Jewish remnant serving as a high official in the royal court of the king of Persia, he was told of the distress in his homeland of Judah, and how the walls of Jerusalem were in ruins. He heard how they were the laughingstock of the surrounding nations.
He began to fast. He began to pray… concerning the situation.
Then the LORD answered his prayers and caused him to find favour before the king, who not only granted his request but also sent him to Judah as a governor with a mandate to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.
In spite of strong opposition from enemies within and without, he got the job done.
The walls were rebuilt within 52 days. As governor of the province, he then began the difficult task of repopulating the city and purifying the community. He enforced the cancellation of debts, assisted the priests in administering religious laws, and ruled with justice and righteousness for 12 years.
Fast forward to the 21st century… to this present moment.
What’s This Got
To Do With You?
In the lives of so many believers today, the walls (or hedge) of security and protection that the LORD supernaturally put in place for His children had been torn down, devastated and destroyed generations ago…
… leaving them helpless and defenceless against the roaring attacks of the enemy.
Their finances, marriages, families, even their health, have been left exposed and the enemies of God have been having a field day, feasting off of them.
In scripture, walls refer to divine security and protection. A lot of terrible things can happen once the hedge of divine security has been broken.
In 2016 the LORD wants that hedge repaired.
And he wants to use you as the Nehemiah of this time to rebuild, reconstruct and restore… beginning from your prayer altar.
Please note 2 things about the man Nehemiah.
First, he was a tenacious prayer warrior.
When he heard the news of devastation at home, he did not just barrel his way into the presence of the king to make a request.
Doing so would have guaranteed his untimely death.
Instead the path he followed was the route taken by all prayer eagles… from the past to the present.
He went to the King of kings first… in fasting and prayers.
He knew full well that
The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water:
he turns it wherever he will. – Prov.21:1
No wonder he received grace, favour and anointing for the job at hand.
Second, Nehemiah had the spirit of entrepreneurship
Imagine the courage of taking on the task of rebuilding something that had been destroyed beyond repair.
Imagine the stiff opposition he faced. Yet he pressed on undaunted. That’s the hallmark of successful entrepreneurs.
Notice how he mobilized the people to do the work. Notice how he put up a security perimeter around the work. Nothing could stop this man.
He put his trust in the LORD and moved as he was led by the Spirit.
The lesson for us is that it is NOT nearly enough to pray. You have to get up and take persistent ACTION in the direction of your goal.
No room for laziness.
In 2016 the Nehemiah anointing is being released to:
- Rebuild lives that had been wasted
- Rebuild families long devastated by the scourge of generational sins, curses and evil covenants
- Rebuild broken marriages and relationships
- Rebuild the faith and spiritual lives previously shipwrecked
- Rebuild the calling and ministries that had been scattered from within and without.

Hard To Believe (It’s True All The Same)
A really unusual anointing has also been released …
… for believers who would be courageous enough to go into business for themselves.
This is what I referred to earlier as the anointing for Christian entrepreneurship.
Now hear this…
The LORD is not happy that so many of His children have continued to shy away from the divine calling to start new businesses. Many would rather work for even satanic organizations just to earn a pay check.
As you read this, if the Holy Spirit brings conviction to your heart, please don’t waive it aside.
In the days ahead, you do not want to be working where the LORD is not with you a hundred percent.
No matter how cozy or comfortable that job might be, it could disappear in a twinkle of an eye, especially if the LORD has been showing you that it’s time to go start a business and employ His children, instead of remaining an employee for life.
Read the Bible very well. There is an exciting undercurrent of entrepreneurship from beginning to the end.
The wealthy men and women of the Bible were entrepreneurs.
Same thing today.
Most wealthy people you read about are entrepreneurs to the core.
Unfortunately many of them are using their wealth to push all kinds of ungodly agenda all over the place.
But the LORD has a surprise for them.
Many of the giant corporations we’ve come to know will soon disappear.
In their place, the LORD is raising a new breed of businesses built on a foundation of righteousness and the fear of God.
Right now, He is releasing to His people the divine wisdom to build mega-corporations of the future from scratch…
… the kind of wisdom needed to solve the big problems confronting humanity that today’s organizations even with their massive resources have so far failed to solve.
Because their worldly wisdom can only take them so far.
The LORD is about to step in and change things. But He wants to touch the hearts and minds of humanity first.
The anointing is being released right now. As I write this, the spirit realm is thickly covered with this powerful anointing.
At the gate of 2016, you have a great opportunity to tap into this anointing, draw it into your life, and then launch out with courage and conviction.
As with everything supernatural, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about this.
Let me share with you the right way to do it.
The Hidden Path to Victory in 2016
- Eliminates Obstacles And Opposition
Without You Firing A Single Shot
It’s getting exciting here…
First let’s take our reading from the book of Luke.
One day Jesus was standing by the Sea of Galilee. The people crowded around him as they listened to God's word. Jesus saw two boats on the shore. The fishermen had stepped out of them and were washing their nets. So Jesus got into the boat that belonged to Simon and asked him to push off a little from the shore.
Then Jesus sat down and taught the crowd from the boat. When he finished speaking, he told Simon, "Take the boat into deep water, and lower your nets to catch some fish." Simon answered, "Teacher, we worked hard all night and caught nothing. But if you say so, I'll lower the nets."
After the men had done this, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to tear. So they signalled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. Their partners came and filled both boats until the boats nearly sank. When Simon Peter saw this, he knelt in front of Jesus and said, "Leave me, Lord! I'm a sinful person!"
Simon and everyone who was with him was amazed to see the large number of fish they had caught. James and John, who were Zebedee's sons and Simon's partners, were also amazed. Jesus told Simon, "Don't be afraid. From now on you will catch people instead of fish."
Simon and his partners brought the boats to shore, left everything, and
– Luke 5:1-11 (God’s Word Translation)
Entire books have been written on these verses of scripture. The story itself is familiar.
However we’re going to take a different track today so we can see 3 not-so-obvious things hiding in plain sight here.
Not-So-Obvious Thing #1:
The boats were empty. The fishermen had left the boats. The Lord was able to enter one of them and convert it to an emergency pulpit because it was empty.
If the fishermen were still inside, and if they had caught a lot of fishes, there wouldn’t have been enough room for the Lord Jesus in that boat. Please keep this at the back of your mind.
Not-So-Obvious Thing #2:
The Lord needed Peter to do 2 things. Both involved movement. In some discourses the first movement is almost always overlooked but it holds the key to what followed.
First he had to push the boat a little bit away from the shore. Later he had to take the boat into deep water (where the fishes were waiting in hiding). If Peter had ignored the first instruction, he probably would not have received the next.
And this event would not have found its way into scripture. Please bear that in mind also.
Not-So-Obvious Thing #3:
When the final instruction came for Peter to launch out into deep water and lower his net for the catch, he couldn’t help but wonder out loud. This ran counter to all he knew as an experienced and expert fisherman steeped in the worldly wisdom of his day.
Admirably, he was able to push his worldly expertise (which had brought him nothing so far) aside in order to follow the voice of the Master.
The rest, as they say, is history.
1. The boats were empty so the Lord could enter into one of them and use it.
2. Two instructions issued; two instructions followed (in spite of one not making sense)
3. Then comes the reward – supernatural filling of the boats almost to the sinking point.
Here’s where we’re going –
To participate in the anointing just released for 2016, you first have to be emptied of 2 things:
- Be emptied of the worldly wisdom you have used to operate your life so far.
Anytime we think we know how to do things on our own without the Lord’s
the sinful nature takes over and it inevitably results in disaster.
At some point even Apostle Paul had to cry out like this:
I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. I love God’s law with all my heart. But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind.
This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is:
In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin. – Romans 7:21-25 (NLT)
- Be emptied of the hidden sins in our lives
So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. But when you are directed by the Spirit, you are not under obligation to the law of Moses.
When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
- Gal. 5: 16-21 (NLT)
Sometimes I receive thousands of emails weekly. As I write this, my main inbox is overflowing with 299,483 unopened emails. This number is growing by the day. In the past year I opened and read about 200 emails a day.
What I have discovered is that most believers are missing the mark badly in this important area.
Sure they have invited Jesus into their lives but they give Him no room at all to operate. Instead they are still firmly in the driver’s seat of their lives, only occasionally giving ground reluctantly to the Spirit of God when they hit a brick wall.
You see, the Lord had to take complete charge of the boat first, use it for His supreme purpose BEFORE releasing untold abundance.
Let’s take a close look… through the eyes of the boat.
As far as the boat is concerned,
- It was first emptied
- To make room for the Lord
- Then it was separated from the crowd
- Used as an emergency pulpit
- Afterwards taken into deep water
- Filled with unprecedented catch of fishes
This is the HIDDEN PATH.
You and I are like boats or vessels the LORD wants to take full charge of … for His supreme purpose.
He should be in control.
However we will not be able to hand over control to Him without training ourselves to engage in purposeful fasting and prayer, coupled with a steady diet of the Word of God.
It is easier to sing: “I surrender all … unto Jesus precious saviour…”
But in reality?
Most of us have surrendered less than 1 percent to Him.
And therein lies the problem.
Without emptying ourselves through fasting-prayers coupled with a relentless study of the Word of God…
… the filling, abundance and anointing part will not happen.
It does not matter how many prophecies you receive from anointed ministers of God.
Nothing much will happen.
(If anything happens at all, it will not last).
The disciples of old understood this very well, beginning from this unusual event that took place at the point they were called into ministry.
They never forgot it.
It was a path they followed diligently all through their astonishing ministry in the first century.
They emptied themselves, thrashed their worldly wisdom, and followed the voice of the Master slavishly.
When they were told to wait for the Holy Ghost, they all waited (translation: they continued in fasting and prayer).
After Pentecost, they launched out, taking the gospel everywhere.
The Holy Ghost was firmly in the driver’s seat… they were merely the (visible) human vessels being used … just like the boat at the sea shore that we read about.
Let’s be clear:
The way we run our lives can become so deeply ingrained in us that it would take a major spiritual surgery to change our ways. Tradition is partly responsible for this. Thankfully the Spirit of the Lord is here to help us.
Without this emptying process in our lives, lasting breakthroughs will be difficult to achieve.
The hosts of darkness know this.
They know our areas of weakness. That’s where they would usually launch their attacks from. But once we “empty” ourselves as explained above, we would essentially destroy their points of entry into our lives.
That means most of the attacks you are seeing today will simply disappear.
The HIDDEN PATH is now coming into sharper focus.
It is to …
- Be emptied
- Surrender the vessel of your life for the Master’s use (wholly)
- Hand over control to Him
- Be alert to His instructions (whether small or big)
- Receive the infilling, anointing plus the abundance that comes with it
Why Is This Called
The Hidden Path?
Because you have to look beyond the obvious.
The passage we just read… we’ve been conditioned to look at it strictly from
That is good. In addition we need to see it from the not-so-obvious perspective too.
In Matt.7 we see this:
“You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.” – Matt 7:13 – 14 (NLT)
The celebrated American poet Robert Frost once wrote:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
There’s a road that more and more believers are finding increasingly difficult to travel.
It is the road of fasting and prayer.
Believers who choose NOT to travel this road are usually among the first casualties when the enemy opens fire.
As a Christian in the increasingly-dangerous world that we live it, you would be doing yourself a great disservice if you do not train yourself to go into fasting-prayers from time to time.
Let me assure you today:
The LORD will not change the universal principles of scripture just to accommodate the people of this generation.
If others did it in the past, we will have to do the same.
The man with the anointing to rebuild that we studied began with fasting and prayer.
The Lord Jesus Himself began His ministry with fasting and prayer.
The Apostles did the same.
Anyone who has achieved anything of significance for the Kingdom of Christ has had to do the same.
Walking this Hidden Path comes with great side benefits.
Just a few examples –
- Fasting –prayers sharpen your eyes and ears in the spirit
- Diseases /sicknesses cannot long survive in the body of those who train and exercise themselves through fasting and prayer.
- It is difficult for the enemy to abort or steal the blessings of those who walk the hidden path.
In our generation, the devil is an expert at telling some people they will die if they ever attempt to fast.
So the LORD has given us a neat little strategy to counter that false notion.
He gave us the idea of creating a Members Forum where those engaged in fasting-prayers can “meet” in a virtual community – to encourage and pray for one another – from 117 countries.
We first implemented this divinely-inspired concept during a 21-day prayer marathon just ended.
Patricia, one of the “denizens” attests to the benefits of this virtual
community. She says:
“I thank God Almighty for this platform. Before joining the Academy and being a member of this holy forum, I was a nervous wreck. Just today, I surprised myself at how calm and at peace I was and still am at what is transpiring!
The same situation used to give me sleepless nights, but now I know I have powerful weapons to deal with it. Secondly, I always look forward to interacting with fellow eagles here because I draw strength from that!
Thirdly, I am learning of the power of interceding for others from other eagles. I intend to tap into this as we enter into this new realm of prayer. Many times we tend to be engrossed in our own situations and forget that there are others out there who need someone to step in the gap for them.
It is a good feeling to know that somewhere someone is pleading case!”
– Eagle Patricia, 24-Hour Blog
Looking through the comments and testimonies inside the Forum quickly reveals who is in charge.
This might be hard for many to understand. The shared, confidential
“virtual” community has helped to …
Dissolve All Fear And Instead Make Our
Fasting-Prayer Programs Fun to Participate In
One night I was going through the posts (there are thousands of them) and wondering how to respond to a particular comment someone from the Philippines had posted when the Holy Spirit spoke, “Leave this to me. I AM in charge here.”
Sure enough, I scrolled down and a few posts earlier I found He had already used another prayer eagle from Brazil to address the issue that was raised.
In 2016 we are moving all other programs to this community-based platform.
Starting with the Prayer Academy…
- to the Singles 1000 Prayer Program…
- even to the Marriage Restoration Academy …
- and all the other special programs in between.
When the Spirit of the LORD is given the opportunity to get into the driver’s seat of your life…
… that’s when you’ll begin to see your enemies falling without you having to fire s shot.
This can happen in your job or business … your marriage … even your ministry too.
A few months ago, the hosts of darkness descended on our websites.
They were mad as hell.
Because we are daily arming the saints and showing them step-by-step how to break the chains of captivity and walk in the liberty that Christ purchased for us with His blood.
No apologies to anyone.
This sort of activity does not sit well with the enemy of our soul.
But there’s MORE.
Now the devil is not really bothered that organizations calling people to prayer are popping up everywhere like mushrooms.
He knows he can always discourage them by pointing out that their prayers have received no answers. That’s all he has to do to get them to lose faith in prayer.
How did the LORD equip us to respond to this clever gambit by the hosts of darkness?
#1: By answering the prayers from this site (when instructions
The testimonies we share daily are ample PROOF of this.
#2: By equipping us with a mysterious little “tool,” which we
call a “prayer twin”
for lack of a better term.
I have never openly discussed this concept before now though you’ll find references to its operation in all our prayer marathons. Here I’ll just introduce it and give a couple of examples.
(The next SAPPHIRE EDITION program is where we’ll go into more details).
Here’s Why We Get the Devil
And His Demonic Drones Mad…
And SCARED … At The Same Time
At the beginning, the LORD gave me 40 secret weapons in a midnight-hour vision. What I’m about to share is #6 out of 40. And this is my 11th year doing this on the Internet.
We’ve only been able to get to this far. .. barely scratching the surface (imagine what lies ahead).
To better understand the impact that your prayers may be having we introduce the concept of a “prayer twin.”
A prayer twin is a picture of your prayer as it works its way through the spirit realm.
It allows you to see the effect of your prayers on various targets, even though you might not yet receive the answers in the natural world.
This is a very powerful concept. No one can discourage you when you become aware of what’s going on in the realm of the spirit. Prayer twins may provide you with insights into the hidden roots of your problems. Plus they will show how to tweak and “scripturize” your prayers for best results.
Many people can see this idea of prayer twin in their dreams – immediately after their midnight praise/worship/prayers. Such dreams are usually loaded with revelation knowledge that give you insight into the past, present and future.
Here are 2 recent examples of this secret at work. The first incident came in as I was putting finishing touches to this Blueprint.
The second is “borrowed” from an unusual case study posted to the 24-Hour Blog, the Members’ Forum that our eagles refer to as The Upper Room.
Here’s the first…
"Let me get straight to the point as I know you have thousands of praise reports to attend!!
The 21 day eagles’ prayers shifted atmospheres in my family. Yesterday my siblings and I visited the land (over 7000 hectares) bought by our forefathers, now used to farm tomatoes/homestead.
We went there with every intention to prayer. we started praising an worshipping, pleading for God to release the fullness of His Glory in that land. The Holy Spirit directed us where to stand on that land and pray.
We uprooted every Ancient altars that was still being serviced on our behalf; called upon the Fire of God to visit our bloodline, foundation and family tree. we then rededicated that land back to the LORD and asked GOD to vindicate the Holiness of His Name upon that land. we closed the prayers with songs of praise as we had been praying from a place of victory.
This morning my eldest sister woke up from a dream (note: she couldn't join us for the prayer as she was in another province). She dreamt of a certain room in that farm being opened, out of it came thousands and thousands of demons/ancient idols, with some even confessing to have been there for 100 years!!!!!!!!!!!!
They were all begging for mercy to be left alone. Unfortunately for them we had zero mercy, we killed them. My sister even woke up for that dream with her left hand being painful as she said she was smashing those idols hard against the wall!!!
This is not just any dream, it is a dream which has revealed ancient problems in our foundation.
Praise be to my King, who is our God of war and deliverer."
- Eagle R. M.
Here’s the second (reader discretion advised):
“During the Platinum Edition, let me start with this dream of last night. Elisha I was in an ancient place with a kind of community people that had chosen to stay together for a common uncivilized evil purpose. With huge aged tree twisted around the ancient caves.
As l walked in, those I thought I knew, each started taking different chores and turned away in an unfriendly manner. There appears the first snake. As it came towards me someone killed it, but others were not happy.
As I looked around for an escape route ( terror and fear engulfing me) a second snake appeared. This was a meter long and only to be bitten and killed by a dog. Someone was shouting and cursing the dog.
In a moment, a mother of all serpents, grey in color, appeared in a huge tree as it coiled and uncoiled. I was dead frozen-with fear in my seat on a wooden tree trunk. It was 17 meters long, with a human head as its tail side, and a snake head on the other... pheeeew!!! ...wriggling furiously with venomous wrath.
I was like getting dizzy like fainting. It collected itself in a centre of a fortress where we sat. Two men with a certain type of hammer appeared on its head and on the human head.
It could fit in an 80 ton truck. They called out my name to say, "awake its over, its gonna be killed...only us have a special weapon( hammer) to kill this type of reptiles."
I was like the hammer is too small it will swallow it. They replied that no, it was made specifically to kill it. Both its heads were shattered, as they hammered the rest of the body.
As I walked away people from all parts of the world came asking me what prayers do I use and how do I pray? One man with the hammer told me that all my blessings and virtues had been inside that serpent and have been released. He said that l will be married and blessed. Remember am in my forties and no marriage.
On the door I met a man with obeisance who handed me a white letter with a message I hadn't read as l was running away from the crowd that begged for what prayers I use so they can be delivered too. I woke up and thanked the LORD for his mercy. May HIS love endure for ever.
Here’s how l prayed before this dream…(she includes the exact prayers and the sequence she prayed them”
- Name Withheld
[elisha's note: In the 24-Hour Blog, we explain what this "dream" signifies,
together with the scriptures to back it up].
These 2 cases are wonderful examples of a specific type of “prayer twin” – the deliverance dream. It can reveal ancient problems hidden in the foundation of many people, including Christians.
In very short order, such dreams tend to translate into resounding victories in the natural realm.
All our prayer programs are embedded with certain prayers designed to provoke this type of revelations… so you actually see what’s going on.
When you see stuff like this, no one can stop you from pressing forward in prayer until your victory manifests for all to see.
No wonder the enemy was hell bent on stopping us.
Now back to the attack they launched to shut down our websites…
When these workers of darkness struck, their victory was short lived.
For a few days, they succeeded in bringing all our operations to a grinding halt.
We went to the LORD … the One who gave us the mandate to do this.
He reassured us that the battle was not ours, but His.
Then he opened my understanding concerning an obscure scripture that seemed totally unrelated to the issue at hand.
Sure enough, before long the LORD proved Himself. We were back up and running, without missing a beat.
We’re still here … moving from glory to glory.
Praise the LORD.
In 2016, you will be well served to make sure the LORD is in your boat … leading the charge, giving directions … while you simply stay alert to walk wherever He leads.
The Hidden Path is the path of honor and divine promotion.
Jesus Himself walked there:
Have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Although he was in the form of God and equal with God, he did not take advantage of this equality. Instead, he emptied himself by taking on the form of a servant, by becoming like other humans, by having a human appearance.
And being found in human form, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, yes, the death of the cross. Therefore God also highly exalted him, and gave to him the name which is above every name;
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, those on earth, and those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
– Philippians 2:5-11
As you walk the Hidden Path… the road less travelled by modern Christianity:
Lives will be transformed.
Situations will be changed.
The walls will be rebuilt.
How to Pray into 2016
Here’s the order of events:
Level 0 - Storming the Gate of 2016 (public event for all)
Level 1 - Prayer Academy (New members – access required)
Level 2 - Sapphire 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, 2015, 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 2016... 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 proceeding to the next step.
Simple Step #2:
All Secret Sins Must Go
(And I Do Mean ALL)
Realize that God sees your heart even now. 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 I want to 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
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.

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.
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 December 31, 2015. (The rest I will continue to share step by step in the Prayer Academy and the SAPPHIRE program).
If you're ready, let's go...
"O LORD, open my spiritual understanding today in the name of Jesus. Amen."
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
(i) 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 (Esther 5).
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 words, “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 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 labour), 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 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 in the 24-hour blog during the year].
Thankfully, the Lord has not left us ignorant about this matter. 11 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 led 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.”
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.

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 2016 ... 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 2016.
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 disciples pleaded:
"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 2016 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.
