Prayer and Fasting: Not an Option

“Now, thus saith the Lord. It is a time when you must draw near to the Spirit of God. Doing that will bring us into strength for the fight that is to come.

We must spend time in fasting. We MUST fast! Without fasting you cannot walk in the spiritual power that I have called you to. That is why My Son, on this earth, spent His time fasting on a regular basis. Read My Gospels. In there you will find that My Son Jesus fasted continually; spent much time fasting, much time in prayer, sometimes all night in prayer—and this was His spiritual strength.

You must walk in this. If you are to walk and be victorious against satan, against evil that is to come, you MUST learn to fast before Me.

Spend time in the Word. Spend time in prayer. Spend MUCH time in prayer! In this time you will learn from the Spirit of God, from the will of God, by the might of God. You will learn the ways that I want you, as an individual, to walk; the call that I want you to be involved in (for everyone has a calling—every single person has a calling).

There is no one that is not of My kingdom that I do not call to something. It may be a very low calling. Or it may be a very high calling. But whatever it is, it is your responsibility as a Spirit filled christian to learn to walk after the call of God in your life. It may be only to help your church, to witness, and to lead people to the Lord—do simple things like this—that may be all I call you to do. Many have only that calling. But many more will be noticed standing up, shouting from the house tops, from the mountain tops the very things that I call them to say.

For I have called a new breed of prophets. And you’ll begin to see those people as they stand up and say,” this is a time to serve the Lord.” And heed them!

Watch out for false prophets. There are many such false prophets. By their fruits you shall know them. Listen to My Spirit. I will even show you in My Spirit, in your prayer time, in your fasting time—I will show what’s a false prophet, what’s a true prophet. I will direct you. You will not be misled.

But heed My true prophets, for they are there. And they will walk, and they will be strong. And I will bring you up a breed, and am bringing up a breed of new prophets in this time, which will not fear man, but will fear God, and God’s place will be upon him.”

The Vineyard of Prayer

“Ten Thousand Angels Cried” …LeeAnn Rimes

 

 

“Oh my child,  the days are fraught with burdens that need to be borne on the shoulders of faithful prayer warriors. Where are the ones who are willing to make themselves available to the Spirit for this ministry? Lo, I say, the Word sown shall dry up like carelessly strewn seed if it be not watered with the tears of intercession. You cannot in yourself lay this ministry upon your soul, but you CAN make room in your life for time apart with me; as you place yourself at the disposal of the Holy Spirit. He shall use you as a channel as the needs arise.

Nothing is more needful at this present hour than PRAYER POWER in full operation under the direction and unction of the Holy Spirit.

I am calling My Spirit-filled believers to concerted and concentrated labor in this, the Vineyard of prayer. Hidden from the eye of man, it is wide open to heaven; and the saints of heaven join with you in this operation of the love of God.

Other ministries you must carry on yourselves alone, but in this you have a mutual fellowship, for those in heaven have also and intercessory ministry for their brethren still on earth.

Rejoice to be granted the privilege of so sacred a task. Count it most precious, and guard against the intrusion of distractions. Nothing is more important in My sight of all that you can do for Me. Cherish it and cultivate it. Live in prayer, and you shall know a full life of joy and the remuneration of My blessing!

17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the mourning women, that they may come; and send for cunning women, that they may come:

18 And let them make haste, and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters.

19 For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we spoiled! we are greatly confounded, because we have forsaken the land, because our dwellings have cast us out.

20 Yet hear the word of the LORD, O ye women, and let your ear receive the word of his mouth, and teach your daughters wailing, and every one her neighbour lamentation.
