Boldly Entering the Throne

Room to Restore Covenant

Blessings

This 25-Day Prayer Focus for Boldly Entering the Throne Room to Restore Covenant Blessings can be started whenever you receive this. If you choose to start on Monday, that will take you to Sunday, April 9.

Day 1: Read Luke 11. Meditate on the Lord’s Prayer. This is a season where the Lord’s Prayer becomes a reality in our life. We must watch earth and heaven connect. We need to pull into the earth realm things that we have prayed in the past and that are stored in heavenly places.

Day 2: Read Genesis 22. Hallowed be Thy Name, Jehovah Jireh. Ask the Lord to allow you to know Him as Jireh. The testing of your faith unlocks provision.

Day 3: Read Exodus 15. Hallowed be Thy Name, Jehovah Rophe. Ask the Lord to have you experience Him as Rophe. Confess any murmuring or complaining as sin and a violation of trust. Ask the Lord to cleanse your spirit, soul, and remove any effects on your body.

Day 4: Read Exodus 17. Hallowed be Thy Name, Jehovah Nissi. Ask the Lord to teach you who He is as Nissi, His Banner Over You As Love. Let Him be your warrior. Learn to do battle with your Amalekites. (You can read the chapter in The Future War of the Church on “The Modern-Day Ites” and “Dethroning Thrones of Iniquity” for more insight on this.)

Day 5: Read Judges 6-8. Hallowed be Thy Name, Jehovah Shalom. Let Him reveal Himself as Shalom, the God of Wholeness, as you go into your next war and recovery!

Day 6: Read Hebrews 9 and 10. God has a remedy for iniquity: the covenant exchange of blood. Confess that HE IS. Hold fast to your confession!

Day 7: Read John 20 and 21. Let Him show you His grace to release the forgiveness of sins. Forgive. Go forth and release! See the apostolic shifts in these chapters.

Day 8: Read Luke 10. Notice the apostolic shift. Also notice the ministry shift through the parable of Good Samaritan. Finally, notice the call to sit and glean the best!

Day 9: Read John 11. Do not fear. He is always on time. Let Him remove any death structure that is holding you captive.

Day 10: Read Numbers 33. There is a time to review your past. Review your journey and promises, and then accelerate.

Day 11: Read Deut. 1. There is an appointed time to shift. You have gone around the same mountain long enough! Determine to “turn up and outward.”

Day 12: Read Deut 1:6-8. There is a time to take your next assignment. Take on your next war!

Day 13: Read Deut. 1:22-26, and Numbers 13 and 14. There is a consequence of not going forward and outward! Break any strategy of unbelief that has held you captive.

Day 14: Read I Kings 19 and Nehemiah 8. Do not let weariness make you run. When words come to us in the midst of our spent emotional seasons, we can react wrongly. Stop and let the Lord rebuild your strength. The joy of the Lord is your strength.

Day 15: Read John 4. Let the Lord confront you with a new way of worship. May your intimate worship turn outward.

Day 16: Read Matthew 9. Do not let past legalism and financial loss keep you from pressing through and gaining new power. We are in a season of breaking cycles. Let me refresh you on what a cycle is. A cycle is an interval during which a recurring sequence of events happens. A cycle can also be a periodically repeated sequence of events, something that happens over and over at a certain time. Sometimes this is impregnated with supernatural phenomena. A cycle can be linked with time or event and orchestrated supernaturally so a repeating wound or injustice occurs from generation to generation. I am praying that every old cycle that would bring you or your family decrease or destruction in the future is being broken in your life.

Day 17: Read Esther 1-5. Fast as the Lord would lead you. (You can see notes on the Feast of Purim in the Three Key Dreams email.)

Day 18: Read Psalm 37. Ask the Lord to unlock your future desire and realign your emotions so your desire is in line with His desire for you. A desire is to long for, ask for, demand or seek for what is most precious. Praise and delight are linked with desire. Spend 30 minutes praising Him. Break the power of any unrestrained desires that have led you into covetousness, presumption, dwindling vision and decay!

Day 19: Read Eph. 4:11, 1 Cor. 12:28, and 2 Cor. 10. God is setting in place His order for the future. Define your sphere of authority. You must build on a sure foundation.

Day 20: Read Matthew 9 and Zech. 3. This is not a time for patching but putting on a new garment. Let the Lord dress you for your future!

Day 21: Read Jeremiah 29. In the midst of your current positioning, praise Him that He has a plan!

Day 22: Read Jeremiah 30 and 31. Look at His future promises and praise Him that His plan is good!

Day 23: Read Jeremiah 32. Meditate and ask the Lord for your faith action. Stake your claim!

Day 24: Read Jeremiah 33:1-3, Proverbs 31, and Psalm 127. Call out and let the Spirit of the Lord reveal things you could never see! Memorize this. Ask the Lord to open your eyes so you watch for your future. This will be a year of WATCHING! The watchman anointing is maturing. To watch means to look out, to peer into the distance, to investigate or get a new scope on something, to see an approaching danger and warn those endangered, to review and evaluate your household, or to see so you can guard your future. I see Him restoring the actual WATCHES so we can see things we have never seen before. I am presently working to complete a book on the four night-watches. God is reordering our day this year so we enter into His timeframe and experience the power of the watch. Let Holy Spirit establish your WATCH!!!!! Watch for unusual things to happen.

Day 25: Read Isaiah 10:26-27, I John 2:20, Isaiah 9:1-4. Receive a New Anointing! Allow the anointing in you to be released in a new way! The anointing is Christ in us being released. This breaks every yoke set against His will. The anointing is like oil. Not only do you become fragrant, but you are able to slip past the enemy. The anointing is also equated to fatness. You grow “fat” with His presence and authority from the inside, and every yoke on the outside breaks. For the issues that you gained victory in last year, and with the cycles that were broken, let Him become your rearguard so the path ahead is secured for the year.

Finally, do not take yourself so seriously that you lose the ability to laugh. Laughter is the best medicine. Joy is our strength. Learn to laugh not only with your friends and family but at the enemies around you that are attempting to defeat you. When we do this, we will not miss seeing the simple things in a world of chaos. Read Psalm 2 and laugh with the Lord!

Blessings,
Chuck D. Pierce

FACEDOWN 40 Day 9

The Governmental Center

Written by Mike Bickle
Thursday, 09 March 2006

Meditation:

Let the priests, who minister to the Lord, Weep between the porch and the altar; Let them say, “Spare Your people, O Lord, And do not give Your heritage to reproach, That the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’ Joel 2:17

Reflection:

At every level of government, there are places of prominence. Counties have county seats. States, provinces and territories each have respective capitols. Every nation of the earth has a place that the government resides and does business in. These cities are power centers – what is done in the meeting rooms and hallways of these cities affects the people of that land and often the surrounding areas as well. This all applies in the physical realm, but what about the realm of the Spirit? Is there a place of government for that?

The prayer room – the place where God’s saints gather to intercede – is the governmental center of the universe. The jurisdiction entrusted to the prayer room supercedes borders guarded by armies and spiritual principalities. Whether a large gathering of thousands or two or three around a kitchen table, these are the gatherings that truly affect the destiny of billions of people.

Setting aside time for fasting and prayer is the first line of defense in our war against darkness in this age. God’s primary call to a nation in crisis was to gather together in solemn assemblies like the one described by Joel. Let these days of fasting find you planted between the porch and the altar, crying out to the God of heaven to spare His people.

Prayer:

Father, I ask You for an impartation of faith to believe that my voice moves Your heart and that as we cry out to you God, that You bend Your ear and hear the cry of the righteous. What an awesome God you are to partner with your creation.

Power for Breakthrough

Written by Mike Bickle
Tuesday, 07 March 2006

Meditation:

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Reflection:

As we call a nation of young people to pray for God to break in, we need to be clear in our own hearts what exactly it is we’re asking for. Rather than just settle for a series of good meetings that leave us tired out but unchanged, let’s join together to ask Him for an outbreak of His spirit that changes us on all levels.

Power for a breakthough of the heart.
When God does a work in our heart, we find ourselves enjoying a fresh intimacy with Him. We become students of His way of thinking and start to cultivate meekness and purity in our day to day lives. We seek to hear Him clearly and obey Him promptly.

Power for a breakthrough of the mind.
A fresh encounter with God will also manifest itself in a new understanding of God’s personality. We will have a spirit of revelation on our lives that will open up keys to His will for us, His emotions for people, and His End-time purposes.

Power for a breakthrough in ministry.
The Asuza Street revival leaders knew they had a significant move of God on their hands when missionaries began to be sent out around the world. The beauty of a God-movement is that it moves! It cannot be confined, and it is confirmed with power for miracles and authority on our words.

Prayer:

Jesus, You said we would receive Your power to become a witness to Your life. I ask that You would cause my heart and my mind to receive a breakthrough in power so that everything in me that hinders my life from witnessing to Your Divine Life would be removed. We ask for you manifest glory to be released in this hour.

Fasting For Breakthrough In The Heavens

Written by Lou Engle
Tuesday, 07 March 2006

Meditation:

Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. ? Daniel 10:12-13

Reflection:

A while back, I picked up a book with a picture of Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler facing off against each other on the cover. The essence of the book was to capture how providential it was that these two leaders ?happened? to rise to political office at the same time. It was said that without Churchill, Hitler would have taken over the world. Yet without Hitler, Churchill would never have become the Prime Minister of Great Britain and one of the greatest leaders of the free world. Hitler was prepared by the enemy to wipe out God?s chosen people, but God was preparing Churchill in the wings to wipe out Hitler and Nazism.

A young Korean student from California, in regards to this book, wrote in his journal:

“I understood the purpose of my life. At this moment in time, I?m being prepared
to someday face my Hitler. The devil is preparing his end-time army to do
whatever he has planned. He has Hitlers training all over the world. I believe
that the Lord is calling me, and an entire generation, to enlist in His army to
be Churchills who will one day face their Hitlers and fight when war breaks out.
That?s what the call is all about?we?re calling for a global spiritual
revolution starting with our nation.”

Recently, a young woman from Kansas City dreamt that she was standing looking at The Cause team in front of the Supreme Court. She knew in the dream that it was January and we were praying night and day with a constant line of people from one end of the Court to the other. Then she left the Supreme Court to go to the Justice House of Prayer and she bumped into me and I excitedly told her that something big was going to happen on April 9, but it was confidential. Then in the dream I decided to tell her so I pulled her aside and told her that on April 9 I was going to meet with the President of Iran and it was going to be an important day. In the next scene of the dream, she knew it was April 9 and everyone was back at the Supreme Court praying. She saw a man coming toward the team, so she went forth as a representative of JHOP. As he approached her, he introduced himself as the President of Iran. She asked him if he was looking for Lou Engle. He responded, ?Yes!? At the end of the dream, she ran to me saying, ?Lou! Lou! It?s April 9 and he?s here!?

I am stirred that our corporate fasting is going to bring us to a place of addressing the President of Iran; not a literal meeting, but in a confrontation with the Prince of Persia, the dark spirit-being stirring the President of Iran to hatred for the Jewish people and the frighteningly rapid pursuit of nuclear weapons.

Recently, the President of Iran, quoted Psalm 83:4, almost word for word, where foreign nations are speaking of Israel: ?Come and let us cut them off from being a nation that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.? When Daniel fasted, he inaugurated war in the heavens and Michael the archangel came to aid in the battle to dispel the evil Prince of Persia from his position of influence over earthly king of Persia. On the 21st day of this battle, Daniel?s fasting and praying to the King of kings and Lord of lords proved victorious on the battlefield and the angel of the Lord held the place of influence over the kingdom of Persia.

Brothers and sisters, multitudes of people are praying and fasting around the world during this season. I believe our prayer will speak to the Prince of Persia as it seeks to hold power over the President of Iran and all the Muslim nations. Now is the time to stand, having done everything left to stand, to bind the strongman, restrain the ancient spirit that seeks to destroy Israel, and loose Muslims into the revelation of Chris Jesus. Through fasting and prayer, like Daniel, we shape the destinies of nations. Like Churchill withstood Hitler, the Church on the Hill must rediscover its vocation of restraining the powers of darkness and setting captives free.

Prayer:

Lord Jesus, we stand in the victory of Christ and his finished victory at the cross. Clothed with your authority, we declare the victory of Christ over the powers of darkness as they rage in Iraq and Iran and all the Middle East. We proclaim a great freedom for the Muslims peoples to come to Christ. We call forth a retraining order in the spirit against nuclear proliferation and the taunts of destructions against Israel. Lord Jesus call your Church to stand at this hour with the weapons of fasting and prayer. Raise up your house of prayer that contends with the Muslim house of prayer! In Jesus? name, Amen!
