National Fast: 27 January – ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

If one looks at the National Anthems around the earth, written before 1970, the majority of them mention God and His blessing!  Whatever is transmitted to the public through this medium, is the sound that society becomes and embraces.  We must have people who are called, creative and gifted to send forth a pure sound that people within society will embrace.  People embrace the message… Continue reading “National Fast: 27 January – ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT”

National Fast: 22 January – GOVERNMENT

The power of choice has been given to the individual in whom he will elect into power. The case of the Israelites God gave them the choice of who would rule over them? Pilate gave the people the choice of who they would choose.  Why did God allow this? God wanted the tribes, people’s and nations to accept responsibility and live with the consequences, good and bad!

National Fast: 21 January – ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

RECLAIMING ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT WORLD OF CULTURE
The creative Arts and Entertainment world of culture were fashioned and formed by Our Creator God. In allowing these to become perverted and pursuing the counterfeit we have opened ourselves, and built a culture and brought a message that is contradictory to our Creator God’s divine intention, plan and purpose. This medium either positively or negatively is wield great power and influence over our present and future generation.

  2. Pray for restoration and revival of a creative vision and culture that aligns us to our Creator God and His rightful place and position in order that His kingdom purpose may be established.
  3. Pray for the increase and establishment of righteous men and women unafraid to challenge the status quo.  Willing to use their God-given talent and creativity to make inroads in the arts and entertainment arena for evangelism.
  4. Gifted artisans in all fields to influence and bring a strong, creative and powerful spirit filled message that will speak to a lost, broken world desperately in need of healing, deliverance and peace thus enabling them to find answers to their many questions.

National Fast: 19 January – EDUCATION

From the book of Genesis to Revelation God reinforces the concept that KNOWLEDGE is demonstrated in action, faith in works, learning in growth! Most education systems are based on the concept that you can know by retaining information about a subject without needing to apply it.  This system needs to be reviewed to accommodate all learners…. God has not placed the  GOVERNMENT to rule over the hearts and minds of children!

BASIC PRAYER POINTS

  1. Unjust laws toward christian education to be revised and reversed!
  2. For a new SEASON of TRANSFORMATION education!
  3. For parents and educators to realise: every child is gifted, every child has value and every child has the RIGHT to reach his DESTINY!
  4. For parents to be involved in their Childs schooling, motivating and instilling confidence in the child.
  5. For morality to accompany the process of education.
  6. For educators and GREAT MINDS to arise, bringing a TRANSFORMATION in our education system.
  7. Educational systems that facilitate the potential and destiny of children!

SCRIPTURES
1. Genesis 1:27
2. Acts 13:36
3. Deut 4:6-7

PROPHETIC WORD

The Spirit of the Lord is saying, “I have heard your cry in this nation for quality education, for teachers that will search for the heart of God on behalf of children and see their vocation as a calling, a privileged place of influence upon young hearts and I am granting your request in this day. You will see the mountain of education rising of the sea of demonic activity and filth. I am even shaking the tree of education right up into government. You will see the dead leaves of unfulfilled promises fall and even branches (people in positions of authority) being cut off and away. This is a season of pruning in education so I can raise up this nation to impact the world as I have promised many times before.”

I saw a new movement coming from parents who have had enough, not only through homeschooling, but in the public education system. I saw like a new body forming – something like a reformation group – with an agenda of truth and action. Their voice will be heard in homes through the media. I saw it started like an underground rebel movement but will be publicly heard even in this season and then taken into government. It will cause an uproar and create motion in other parents’ hearts – not in a violent way – motivating others to action.

God is taking us back to a foundation of Truth in education and there can be no truth outside the God of Truth!
