Bobby Conner – The power of prayer

May 3, 2018

Today is the National Day of Prayer! What a wonderful time to cry out to Almighty God for transforming power. Never doubt the prayers of the Saints are awesome in power. 

If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (AMPC) 

Through Pray God Reveals Mighty Things 

‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

Jeremiah 33:3 (NKJV)

Another translation of this passage reminds us that God has wonderful mighty things hidden away for us when we are willing to pray them into our present. 

Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand.

Jeremiah 33:3 (AMPC) 

Yes, it is true God does hide things from us for us.

 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the glory of kings is to search out a thing.

Proverbs 25:2 (AMPC)

The secret things belong unto the Lord our God, but the things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all of the words of this law.

Deuteronomy 29:29 (AMPC)

Scripture states “make-up your mind what you want, tell God what that is, and He will get it for you.”

You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways.

Job 22:28 (AMPC)

You shall decide – “make-up your mind.”

You shall decree – “tell God what it is.”

It shall be established for you!

Beloved! We can do nothing more powerful than praying. God bless you and your family (see Psalms 115:14-15).

Drought on the Prairies? Please pray for us!

Dear Brother and Sisters (Please forward this to all your contacts. )

Every year we like to take one day specifically to pray for farmers, agriculture and weather (including protection for forest fires).

This year it is May 27th. It is a  Sunday with the hopes that Churches all cross the nation could take a few minutes to ask God’s protection, blessing and for needed balanced rains and sunshine.  Please ask YOUR church if they could take a few minutes to pray corporately.

PLUS: through out this month whenever you give thanksgiving and say grace for your food, ask the Lord to bless the land to send balanced rains and sunshine, to protect from harm.

 

 

Canada in the wake of Humboldt and Toronto

HUMBOLDT PROPHETIC DISCERNMENT

Because of the extraordinary way that the Humboldt accident has touched the nation, the Ears to Hear Network gathered for a special meeting on April 21 to discern what God is saying through this and how He would have us respond.

This is what we believe God is saying to us, and to the Church of Canada:

While this tragedy was not caused by God, He is using what the enemy meant for evil and turning it into national good. He is taking our ashes of mourning and is turning them into a place for beauty. He is using this deep place of loss and brokenness as a platform for the name of Jesus and the power of His gospel.

The scriptures that Pastor Sean Brandow preached from at the nationally televised Humboldt prayer vigil are indeed words for the nation.
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for you are with me” Ps 23:4
“He is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit” Ps 32:18

These words apply in Humboldt as the epicenter, but also in all the places that death and brokenness are right now touching the Church of Canada, be that at a very personal level or in more corporate ways. This is a call to follow the Lord through the valley of the shadow of death and to embrace brokenness, weakness, and humility. To make room for Him to save us, rather than us trying to save ourselves. This is an hour for walking out John 12: 23-26, which means to follow Jesus into His way of multiplying, His way to abundant fruitfulness- laying down his life.

Unless a Grain of Wheat Dies
“And Jesus answered them, ‘The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.” Jn 12:23-26

The call in this passage is to “hate our life”, which we understand to be a call to die to the things of self, embracing instead a tenderized and repentant spirit. Choosing a lifestyle that quickly turns from all sinful thoughts, actions, or motives that the Lord brings to the light (Rev 12:11). It is walking in the fear of the Lord and trembling at His word (Isa 66:2).

The Key is Humility – and Boldness
We are hearing that the key to the next revival is authentic and deep humility, where the name of Jesus is given the spotlight, the platform, and the honour. But it is also about boldness, so there is an invitation to steward this national moment where this tragedy has made new room for the name of Jesus, for prayer and the honouring of scripture in the public square. It is a time for embracing brokenness but also stepping into a bold testifying of the gospel of Jesus. It is truly a gospel moment. Although political correctness has sought to silence the voice of the Church, the Father is calling us to be free from the fear of man. Even the name of the little town of Humboldt has struck many, as God has highlighted the embedded words of “humble” and “bold”.

A Time of Second Chances
A young survivor of the accident, whose neck and back were broken, declared that “God has given me a second chance”. We believe that this is also a word to many in the nation, we are in a time of second chances for prodigals, backsliders and nominal Christians where many will turn to become wholehearted followers of Christ.

Toronto
As we were drafting this word, the terrible attack in Toronto has just happened, underscoring even further the shaking that is happening in our nation. Let us grieve with those who grieve, pray for their comfort, but boldly cry out for the breakthroughs of life and redemption in this hour.

Fill the Closets with Prayer
Rather than initiating a mobilized response, our Network believes the Lord is drawing the Canadian Church into deep times of personal prayer. May this be a season of re-activating personal prayer closets. These are some of the needs we believe He desires we bring before Him:

Pray for the Church in Canada to cultivate Christ-like humility
Pray for an increase of Jesus receiving the glory, the spotlight, the honour
Pray for all intimidation to be stripped off of the Church and for us to receive boldness to speak God’s word, and share His gospel
Pray for those who have wandered from the Father, that they would find this is a time for a glorious second chance
Pray for Church would embrace dying to self so that the life of Christ would rise and be multiplied in us
Pray for the Church in Humboldt to be comforted and empowered by God’s grace to serve their community with the goodness of Jesus. May they walk in supernatural unity and love.
Pray for the Church surrounding the attack in Toronto, that they as well would find extraordinary grace to minister God’s love.

Signs in the heavens…coming your way.

Had an interesting dream last night – I was looking out the window of my apartment, when I saw in the sky that Jupiter became all lit up like a star.
No big deal you think – it’s always a star when you look at it.  That was the thing, when I saw it, it was resolved as a disk with four moons in orbit around it and I could plainly see this.  It was almost as if it had moved closer to us in the sky and we could see the actual planet with it’s moons.  Then it started to glow with a bright light.

I knew in the dream that God was doing the miraculous again and demonstrating signs in the heavens, in anticipation of the coming of the Lord.

(Genesis 1:14-19) And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

(Luke 21:11)  And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

(Luke 21:25-28) And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

(Acts 2:17-21) And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

(Joel 2:28-32) And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

Don’t be surprised if you start to see signs and wonders in the heavens.  

Carpenters rising out of the earth

I saw carpenters coming to fix the house that I was in with my Father.

I believe that the Lord is releasing those with apostolic anointing to put right the things within His church.  The house of the Lord is being repaired and strengthened.

Praise God!

The harvesters are leaving the barn!

In a dream last night I saw three combine harvesters leaving their garages / barns and heading out to the fields to work.

I believe that the Lord is saying that the harvest is on the way.  Expect to see multiple salvations beginning to occur – along with serious removal of tares as the combines move through the fields (which are white to harvest).

Nothing shall be lost, a combine harvester, when used correctly will sweep a field clean as it brings in the harvest.

Rejoice Saints!  The Lord is on the move.
