In this acceptable year of the Lord, with our proper aligning with God, may this be a year of fulfillment as we commit afresh every space of our hearts to His divine calling, with expressions of devotion to His purpose and plan. May we realize His presence and remember what He has promised, while insisting upon not missing the day of His visitation. Trained and summoned for His purpose, we were created for such a time as this. [Pastor]
Abandoning ourselves to the Father, we will not look back. May the Lord be our constant vision in this new year. Laying aside every weight, and the sin which so easily besets us, let us run with patience the race that is set before us as we look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. [Teacher]
Presenting our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable unto God, we rejoice in knowing the Father takes pleasure in our submission to His heart and plan. Let our song of praise still the enemy from any hold he may have on the Saints and the purposes ordained of the Lord. May there be a prophetic birthing of creative strength, wisdom, timing, and resources of the Lord. [Prophet]
On an elevated pathway of purpose and promise, let us demonstrate the hidden mysteries revealed through intercession, drawing believers to follow the footsteps of the Saints. [Evangelist]
In the midst of the darkness God is there, and we are one with Him. He is God, it is He who rules, and our confidence is in Him. He will make Himself known through us, and He will be exalted. Though the enemy attempts to change the times and seasons, what God has spoken for this year cannot be changed, revoked or annulled in purpose and fulfillment. As arrows in the hand of a warrior, He sends us forth, and we lift Him up that all may be drawn unto Him. [Apostle]
And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes… Ezra 9:8

First Saturday Prayer Insights Report
As the Saints expressed their devotion and commitment before the Lord, there was a sense of being exactly where God wants us to be. The Spirit of God and His divine calling, which is without repentance, remains committed to our purpose and plan in Him. Our point of responsibility is to realize His presence, commit to Him, and remember what He has promised. These are prophetic days. We must insist upon not missing the day of His visitation.

Found myself recommitting all that I am to the Lord. Asking Him to fill every moment of my life, every space in my heart with His Presence and that He would be my constant vision in this new year. The old hymn played repeatedly in my spirit, like a prophetic song for us. Also, Psalm 8:2 lingered in my spirit… out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength (perfected praise) because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
I sense a prophetic birthing coming forth that will open the way to the creative strength, wisdom, timing, and resources of the Lord.
That the song of praise will still the enemy from any hold he may have on the saints and the purposes ordained of the Lord.

Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
I heard this is the year of the Lord. I don’t know if this refers to this passage in Isaiah where the acceptable year of the Lord is mentioned.
As I submitted myself afresh to the heart and plan of God, I sensed His pleasure, and it made my heart rejoice. I know significant change is coming and we have entered into a time of great rejoicing. Our Lord will make Himself known within us and through us. He is Lord over the nations. He will be exalted.
~ ~ ~
While in prayer I heard the Lord say, “Abandon ourselves to Him”. As we enter this year, we are to focus on Him. We are to take our eyes off of the noise that we are hearing from the world and abandon ourselves to Him.

God has called The Father’s Church to be a remnant to the nations and to lead by example. We are small in number but mighty in word and deed. Our calling is to model and demonstrate the teachings of Jesus. Intercession is the tool that has brought the revelation and insight by uncovering the hidden mysteries in scripture. The Father has placed us upon an elevated pathway of purpose and promise that we widen and deepen with each day. Our message is to build this raised highway higher than the terrain around us drawing believers to follow our footsteps. To many saints, it may look like a simple thoroughfare but for many seekers of God it is like mounting the steps to a palace. The divine Creator will provide and sanctify materials and resources to craft the way of the upright for their country and culture beginning with this new year.
Isaiah 11:16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left…
Ezra 9:8 And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes…

In prayer this morning, God was speaking to me about restoration of many things that He will orchestrate in the next year, as He said many believers have started to act and talk like Satan has greater power and God will let the earth know He is God and He rules.
I started hearing a song the Spirit gave me many years ago from the story of Esther, that which is spoken in the name of the king, cannot be revoked, changed or annulled. Then the Lord spoke something riveting to me. I didn’t want to forget it so got my phone to write it down and it completely disappeared and has not returned.
Whether God hid it or the enemy stole it, I don’t know, he has become audacious and bold, and we must be bolder in our insistence that he restore that which he has taken illegally. At any rate, I feel it was no coincidence I recalled the song just prior, so I just declare that what God has spoken for this year cannot be changed, revoked or annulled in purpose and fulfillment, regardless of whether we remember what He spoke.
~ ~ ~
I spent much of my time in prayer reaffirming my commitment to the Father and His plan of restoration. I had a sense of anticipation of what He plans to do in this new year.
Colossians 2:15 [And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

I was enveloped in pitch black darkness. I felt it surrounding me totally and completely and I was totally comfortable with it because I KNEW God was in the midst of it. I couldn’t see His light, but I KNEW it was there. God has brought us to a point where it no longer matters what is occurring around us. HE is the center of our existence at all times. This will be a year of such confidence in our Father…..in HIS presence….in HIS directive….even in the midst of tremendous darkness. The surrounding darkness is no longer an issue because we are ONE with Him in the midst!

I saw the saints laying upon our faces weeping, we were crying out to the Lord for His Kingdom to come. Then suddenly a great double gate was in front of us. It swung open and a flood of grace as the color orange came over us. We then stood and orange was flowing out from our loins. Then the Lord said we were created for such a time as this!
Then He gave me this portion of scripture:
Esther 4:14 … and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

I found myself in vision in prayer at the junction between the Chronos and Kairos areas along the Zion Wall at the Father’s Church. I was lying on my face on the floor and heard a scratching noise and then I saw that one of the blocks at the base of the wall had been loosened and then it was pushed into the inside and there was an opening to the outside. The air that rushed in was cold and damp, heavy and beyond the wall was not outdoors, but a different place in the spiritual realm. It was dark. A hand reached in. Bony, wrinkled. It felt around as far as it could reach. I recoiled. I knew it was evil. I thought about the enemy attempting to change the times and seasons. I picked up the block and hit the hand a couple of times as hard as I could and it withdrew. Another intercessor and I pushed the block back into its place and secured it. As we secured it, I became aware also of an angelic being that was partnering with us. Our tongues swelled and mixed with angelic tongues.

January 2022 – Benin’s Report
Yalad is a Hebrew word that means: to beget, to give birth to, to make children.
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born (Yalad), unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
According to John 1: 13 We are begotten in a process to bring about a result. God has given life to sons against whom we cannot, struggle, fight, dominate.
Psalms 127:3-5  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
The children of God are to God as arrows are to the hand of a warrior. His house is like a quiver well filled.

I received that we should not look back. The Lord was telling me to go deeper into Him.

Many new births coming.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:1-2).
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2).
It was as if I was flying, seeing the countryside from above. I felt I had to fly down to the ground. Then I saw the muzzle of a cannon hidden in the vegetation. Was the Lord showing me where the enemy was hiding?

January 2022 – Summary
Greetings to all the Saints!
In an atmosphere saturated with His love, where in His grace the Father has given us to taste the abundance of His joy, thanksgiving has gone up to Him for all that He has done and will do through us, He who has taught us, formed us and positioned us together each in his place to represent Him in these special times. (Pastor)
The intercession of the saints sets the stage for the establishment of the cross in the new places the Father has appointed, shaking the earth for restoration. Aligned with the vision coming from the Throne, our voices declare His vision right in the places the Father has appointed and toward which we press to seize our inheritance until the breakthrough. (Evangelist)
The tears shed over our land invite us to declare the unchanging and everlasting covenant of salt over our lives, to demonstrate His authority in the kingdom where as priests we offer our lives to Him asking His fire to cleanse us that His full will may be released in and through us. (Prophet)
More than anything else, we seek the Father’s heart, fully devoted to the accomplishment of His will and His righteous purpose, in a close partnership in and with Him, where our whole being presses and reaches out to the new horizon to accomplish His mission. (Apostle)
As we recommit and rededicate ourselves to the Lord, we find our delight in Him and He in us and in the measure of our surrender, the Lord will pour out a greater measure of His Spirit, creativity and power, declaring to a dying world the magnificence of His grace and beauty. (Teacher)
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Romans 14:17

January 2022 – Report
The prayer on Saturday flowed really from Friday which was a day spent before the Lord, a time of dedication and consecration to the Lord for the year ahead. A yielding to the Lord and a desire for a greater sensitivity to the moving of the Holy Spirit. A knowing that this relationship with Him is all that matters, a belonging foremost to Him.
I sensed on Saturday, the delight in the heart of the Lord as He saw the Saints bring this offering of ourselves to Him. He looks for these devoted ones.
I then kept hearing the words “Greater Measure “and the Lord will, in response to yielded hearts and lives, pour out His Spirit in Greater Measure; the amazing creativity, restorative power, grace and beauty of the Spirit of the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
I felt that we are on the edge of great breakthrough.

Vision of the cross and a great noise with the earth opening. Then a vision of the Lord on the bank of a river who holds out his hand to invite us to cross.

I remembered the path we had traveled; I saw a procession following a coffin. I was crying over my country and I saw an incision in the bark of a tree. The Spirit showed me that the incision would become deeper to release the tree’s sap. I had the salty taste of tears that reminded me of the salt covenant God has made with His saints and I called for fire to come from above as in the days of Eli when he called for fire on the burnt offering (1 Kings 18:38) so that it would set our being ablaze, meet the salt and release our Father’s will in us. In the prayer of consecration that followed I received a Hebrew word, “lamad” whose first occurrence is in Deuteronomy 4:1 translated as “I teach you”.
~ ~ ~
I have seen doors opening, others closing and I have felt a great activity in the spiritual world and the need to press on in prayer towards these new territories that the Lord is giving while being ready to conquer with the spirit of Joshua when a door opens in order to seize our inheritance. This is the time to be shrewd as serpents and wise as doves and to be quick to seize also the doors of opportunity that present themselves in our lives for the restoration.
At the end of my time of prayer, I was as if in a symphony of love where I glimpsed the abundant joys before His face, the eternal delights at His right hand. No words to express my gratitude to the One who is faithful to fulfill His promise and who gives us to walk in partnership with Him in His grace, together, each in our own place.

Psalm 122 was in my heart and especially verses 5 and 9 as a statement, a reminder, an exhortation for this new time before us, to position ourselves on our grounds, in our situations, in a renewed partnership. An exhortation to a close repositioning in Him, with Him, and to pray, to speak, to proclaim His Righteous Vision from His Throne, for the restoration of all things on earth and to go into the fulfillment of His Will and His Righteous Purpose.
Psalm 122:1-8 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. 2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem. 3 Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together: 4 Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD. 5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David. 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. 7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. 8 For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. 9 Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
Romans 14: 17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Worship on the synthesizer began to bring me out of a spiritual night, Hallelujah! During this time, I was able to give thanks for the wonders that Father has done for us, in us and through us during this wonderful year.
~ ~ ~
Thank you Father for all the wonders you have accomplished this year and especially this time of elevation in our respective callings. Powerful songs of breakthrough during this time. I could see fountains of Holy Fire and Glory gushing forth from the depths of our hearts, allowing us to take dominion over a purified and cleansed earth. A time of advancement, of taking territory, moving from Glory to Glory, incredible new connections.
