Watch Report – December 17, 2010

Beloved, Arise and Shine!

The watch focus targeted the homeless and poverty stricken. As a prophetic act to join our hearts together in one accord, we locked shields (as in the movie Gladiator) and declared into the atmosphere “As one.” Eph 3:10-11 His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in heavenly realms, according to His eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord!

As the watch began, a video clip of homeless individuals was viewed. As a point of contact, watchmen gathered to pray for a man who runs a homeless outreach. A woman, who volunteers at an urban ministry, shared how this prophetic act shifted her mindset (on the issue of homelessness). She repented and received prayer for deliverance from a spirit of depression. Bonnie declared that this situation spoke not only to the woman’s individual need, but prophetically; it was a picture for our nation hitting the cross-hairs of the future generation. Give out of your need! Testimonies were given on God’s goodness and provision to further saturate the atmosphere around us as we moved forward, in faith, to enter in a time of prayer. An atmosphere, conducive for miracles, was declared by the watch leader. Watchmen began to step into those miracles in proxy for those in need of God’s divine touch. Additional petitions were offered up in the area of terrorism, troops, Israel, revival, Church (universal and local) and our city.

The watch leader told a story of a town in Wilmington, OH and two perspectives generated as the result of the pullout of one main business – some focused on doom and gloom while others focused on hope and God’s provision – the town established a 24/7 prayer line and pulled together to help each other with food, shelter, and clothing. They came together in faith and laid their hands on empty shelves and six months later the shelves were full of food! Circumstances are determined by your perspective – choose hope!

Bonnie declared a prophetic word regarding a shift needing to happen in the government’s focus from a humanistic, welfare state – that the plug on unrighteous programs (strapping the nation’s finances) would be pulled and that the state of the government would be where the Church could arise in glory and take her place. A call went forth for men and women to arise like Deborah and Barak to be righteous voices in the legislative assemblies. We corporately prayed in the spirit as heaven’s legislative assembly for that shift – for angels to be loosed on assignment; for dreams and strategies to be released; for the release of heavenly blue prints; and for godly wisdom to flow into each and every one of those situations! (That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln)

Believers were challenged to be open to receive new, witty ideas for businesses, arts, media, education, and much more! Also a decree went forth to break the spirit of entitlement in our nation. As a Church we repented for not being the hands and feet that God originally intended His church to be in the place of the governmental body and for allowing our light to dim.

Further prayer was offered for our government to return to these symbols and to honor founding truths.

Isa 58:6-9 Is this not the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice; and untie the cords of the yoke to set the oppressed free and beak every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter when you see the naked to clothe him and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help and He will say Here am I.
