STREAMS OF HEALING

Scripture For Meditation — Ezekiel 47:8-12; Rev 22:1-5; 2 Chronicles 7:14

Our scripture for meditation today is a key integral part of a prophetic word that God gave to us as we waited on Him in fasting and prayers at the end of last year.

He said that He would cause Streams of Healing to flow into our homes.

In retrospect, especially having experienced a few particular incidences since the turn of the New Year, I realise that maybe we did not quite pay as much attention to that prophetic word as we should have; maybe we missed a subtle message in that prophecy that we should have been particularly aware of.

PAY ATTENTION!

Just think about it… If God has said He will cause “Streams of Healing” to flow into our homes, would that not also suggest that there will be incidences of sicknesses that would be prevalent all around that we would need His healing power to keep away from our homes?

Indeed, as we think about that, I’m sure a few of us will notice how that has been a thing in our lives, in our families or in the lives of people that we know or are acquainted with. There seems to have been a persistent attack on people’s health since the turn of the New Year, both physically and mentally.

And even in many nations especially in the UK, the scourge of the Covid-19 pandemic seems to have taken a new lease of life, infecting many at an alarming rate, and taking lives with daily death tolls in the last few weeks rising to unprecedented levels.

But friends, God gave us a word of assurance before all this began to happen!

He said He will cause Streams of Healing / Healing Streams to flow into our homes and lives.

As the NLT translated verse 12 of Ezekiel 47:

“Fruit trees of all kinds will grow along both sides of the river. The leaves of these trees will never turn brown and fall, and there will always be fruit on their branches. There will be a new crop every month, for they are watered by the river flowing from the Temple. The fruit will be for food and the leaves for healing.”

There will be healing wherever the river flows…

While the world awaits a vaccine, we already have an antidote to the scourge; a sure defence against the spirit of infirmity that is plaguing the nations of the world.

Whatever the sickness, whatever the ailments, the River of God; the Living waters, the River of life; the life-flow from the blood that Jesus shed for us on Calvary’s Cross — The power in the blood that flows from the Marcy seat, from the Throne of Grace is indeed a veritable defence against all the storms of the enemy. Hallelujah!

Shalom,

Pastor Wale Ola

An Imminent Change

Scriptures For Meditation — Is 66:7-8; Is 65:17-24

Yesterday in our scripture meditation, we read in Isaiah 26:17-18 about the discouragement of a people, lamenting about their frustrated expectations and the disappointment of pregnancy and the pain of labour without the benefit of delivering a live baby.

But in the first of our scripture text for today’s meditation, we see God presenting a prophetic declaration of an impending change and a new reality to Israel.

As soon as Zion Travailed, She Brought Forth

God was saying to His people; I know that the reality of your past experiences and the story of your present situation has been one of frustrated labour of pain without gain and aborted deliverances, but I am now declaring a different future to you!

“Before the birth pains even begin, Jerusalem gives birth to a son.

Who has ever seen anything as strange as this? Who ever heard of such a thing? Has a nation ever been born in a single day? Has a country ever come forth in a mere moment? But by the time Jerusalem’s birth pains begin, her children will be born.” (Isa 66:7-8, NLT)

In this prophecy, God was promising them that a time was imminent upon them, when their story will change suddenly and their circumstances will turn around to conform with His will, plans and purposes for their existence — they would be delivered from their captivity, gathered from where they have been scattered, brought back into their own land and made to become a nation again.

And all these was going to happen in one day; suddenly, in an instant, and without the delay or pain of a protracted labour!

Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day, or shall a nation be born at once?

Normally, the law of nature demands that through the operation of the principle of seed time and harvest, there is usually a time lapse between when a seed is sown and then the process of germination, maturity and harvest; but He was going to suspend the law of nature and make it happen in a moment.

As Albert Barnes said in his commentary —

“Months and years are required before the earth would be covered with its luxuriant and beautiful productions But here would be an event as remarkable as if the earth should bring forth its productions in a single day.”

Can you also believe this for yourself?

Can you dare to believe that God can do the same in your situation and about your life? That He can bring about your change in one day, in an instant and in a sudden moment?

If God can do it (as He did) for a whole nation, is He not able to do it for you as well?

Selah,

Pastor Wale Ola

PRAYER FOCUS

Our prayers for today will be taken from our second scripture text Is 65:17-24.

Every one of those verses contain a promise to Israel about the blessings of their coming change that we could also use as a template or pattern to shape our prayers today.

Dear Lord, please do something new in my life; change my story and wipe away the painful memories of my past experiences.

Let my life become a source of joy and gladness, and my household be a continuous manifestation of your mercy and victory.

Wipe away the tears of my disappointments and give me reasons to celebrate and rejoice in this new month.

I pray Lord, that your promises concerning my life will no longer be delayed; that I will not suffer any more miscarriages and your plans for my life will no longer be aborted.

I pray that I will no longer labour in vain neither will I toil for minimum returns or no rewards.

I pray that long will I enjoy the fruits of my labour and the work of my hands the the produce of my harvest will be blessed.

Bring the month of June before God, and pray that the answers to these petitions will be manifest in your life in the Name of Jesus.

Amen.

Frustrated Expectations

Scripture For Meditation — Isaiah 26:17-18

When a woman is pregnant, she is said to be “expecting”.

Expecting means: To think or believe something will happen, or someone will arrive. It also means Normal; what usually happens; to regard (someone) as likely to do or be something.

Let’s do a quick word study on the meaning of the root word, expect.

When the root word “Expect” , is used, we mean to say that we believe that something will happen, or to consider something as likely to happen, to believe that (someone or something) will arrive soon.

So, Expect means: To anticipate, await, look for, hope for, watch for, look forward to, look ahead to, have in prospect; contemplate, bargain for/on, bank on, be prepared for, plan for; predict, forecast, foresee, prophesy, envisage, envision.

Unfortunately however, as we read in today’s scripture text, things sometimes don’t go, or happen as we expected; times are, when our expectations are delayed or even completely disappointed at other times.

“As a woman with child approaches the time to give birth, She is in pain and struggles and cries out in her labor, So we were before You, O LORD.

We have been with child, we have twisted and struggled in labor; We gave birth, as it seems, only to wind. We could not accomplish salvation for the earth, Nor were inhabitants of the world born.” (Isa 26:17-18 Amplified)

We have been with child — Like women with child; we have been full of hopes and expectations of great things, of deliverance from our enemies, and of the help from God being at hand:

We have been in pain — We have gone through the waiting period of pregnancy carrying the hope of a coming baby; sometimes in great distress and anxiety, and now we have come to the time of birth when we expect that the baby will be delivered; travailing in birth, we looked upon the pain as a prelude to a happy issue of things: ThatThis baby will be born!

We have as it were brought forth wind — But alas; our efforts have availed nothing. (The issue of all their painful toil was like the result of a false pregnancy!)

We have been through the waiting, we have suffered patiently in the hope; we have been through the pain of the travailing, but without the expectant result!

Can you identify with all that?

Hear again, what God is saying to you dear friend:

“Zion, would I bring you to the moment of birth and not let it happen?” says the LORD. “Would I close up a mother’s body when it is time for her baby to be born?” says your God.” (Isa 66:9 NIRV).

Keep Speaking Right!

Keep declaring the words of the prophecy and promise that God has given to you; keep speaking the right things concerning your life and into your situation. That is what pleases God!

“My son, if your heart is wise, my heart will be glad, even mine;

Yes, my heart will rejoice when your lips speak right things.

Let not your heart envy sinners, but continue in the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord all the day long.

For surely there is a latter end [a future and a reward], and your hope and expectation shall not be cut off.” (Pro 23:15, Amplified)

Selah…

Pastor Wale Ola

PRAYER FOCUS

Ask that God will strengthen you in waiting.

As Paul prayed for the church In Ephesus,

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. (Eph 3:16, New Living Translation)

Pray that God will exalt His word concerning you and bring His promises to pass in your life.

Pray that there will no longer be any delays or obstructions to your delivery.

Pray that the hope you are carrying will not be disappointed, aborted or miscarried.

Pray that your expectations will not be cut off.

Pray that God will intervene in your situation to bring about a timely and safe delivery of His purposes for your life in their due season.

P-U-S-H!

May Fasting & Prayers — Day 1

Theme Scripture for Meditation: Isaiah 66:7-9

Sometime this month, I had a conversation with God in which He asked me about a pregnant woman in labour going through a difficult time in delivering the child — What will she do at that point; will she just give up and let the baby die in her womb without delivering it? Will the medical personnel give up and abandon the process?

Today, we’ll be focussing particularly on verse 9, which has been resounding in my spirit for the better part of this month.

Here, God was symbolically using the scenario of a pregnant woman at the point of delivery, who was about to go into labour, to the state of His people who were at this time in exile under Babylonian captivity.

In the text, God was speaking into a seemingly hopeless situation and declaring something totally contrary to the prevalent state of things as they stood.

His word to them through the Prophet, was that there was going to be a supernatural, sudden turnaround of their captivity and they would experience a quick, pain free birthing that would deliver the promise of the Messiah and of Israel as a reborn nation, gathered together again, from whence they had been scattered.

Even though the prophecy in these verses, pertain to the Jewish nation and the coming of the Messiah and flourishing of the Gospel church, for the purposes of our fasting and prayers this month, we will go outside of the verse in context, and see a truth about God that is universal and consistent with His sovereign nature.

I read a particular translation of this verse, that really conveys this truth — The Doug-Rheims Bible Translation

“Shall not I that make others to bring forth children, myself bring forth, saith the Lord? shall I, that give generation to others, be barren, saith the Lord thy God?” (Isa 66:9)

Meditate on that for a moment…

God was putting forth the omnipotence of His majesty and His track record as a life-giver, the way maker — the God of breakthroughs and sudden turn arounds.

Just as that woman going through the delay of the difficult delivery will not be allowed to give up on the process by the midwife and accompanying medical attendants in that labour room, God is asking you reading this, going through a delay and difficult moment at the point of delivering God’s promises for your destiny or season not to give up, but to p-u-s-h!

They will encourage the woman to push and if she is too weak or incapable of doing so herself naturally, they will look for ways to intervene in order to prevent a destiny from being miscarried and aborted and safely deliver the baby in her womb.

The Holy Spirit is the midwife of your destiny at this point, and God is about to intervene in the delivery of His promises concerning you —if God is able to bring your personal desires to pass, is He not able to bring His own desires and will concerning you to pass?

He will not bring you to the point of birth and then abandon you and not cause you to bring forth!

My dear friend, it is time for the push to happen — God is about to intervene to bring forth that destiny that you have been carrying about in your womb. Don’t give up on that baby just yet!

Selah…

Pastor Wale Ola

Prayer Focus

Just get on your knees, assume a birthing position and push; together with the Holy Spirit, we will all act as the accompanying medical support to push through at the place of prayer.

If you are too tired or too weak to push, simply turn it over to God and ask God for a divine intervention to help bring the promise to birth and to prevent the baby from being still born!

Taking The Limits Off

Scriptures For Meditation — Luke 4:16-21; John 8:36

A recurring theme of the bible is the concept of deliverance, which is a by product of Salvation.

Even the Name Jesus, is derived from the Hebrew word Yeshua, which means Jehovah is Salvation.

In our first scripture for today’s meditation (Luke 4:16-21), Jesus lays out for us, His ministry calling card, detailing the essence of His assignment on earth. A close look at the words that He wrote, will show that the verses are expressing different aspects of deliverance from situations that will cause limitations in people’s lives.

This month’s fasting and prayers will be focused on exactly this — Praying for God to take the limits off of our lives!

Many of us are limited by different issues, facing diverse challenges in our lives, that are or have limited us and are contending with our ability to experience and enjoy the abundant life that Christ has promised us. We will stand together in the place of prayers over the next 3 days, to pray that our lives will begin to align with, and manifest the fullness of the promises of God to us in John 8:36.

Prayer Focus

In whatever ways we are being limited; in whatever situations the enemy has been exacting upon us, we are petitioning God to deliver us in the Name of Jesus, to manifest His glory and loose us and set us free indeed from every limitation that is hindering our progress in life, or has hindered us from fulfilling our God-ordained destinies.

Shalom!

DAY 2: FEBRUARY 2019 FASTING AND PRAYERS

DAY 2: FEBRUARY 2019 FASTING AND PRAYERS

Contending For Your Destiny

Scripture Reading: Matt 16:21-23; Eph 5:13-17

Mat 16:21  From then on Jesus began to tell his disciples plainly that it was necessary for him to go to Jerusalem, and that he would suffer many terrible things at the hands of the elders, the leading priests, and the teachers of religious law. He would be killed, but on the third day he would be raised from the dead.

Mat 16:22  But Peter took him aside and began to reprimand him for saying such things. “Heaven forbid, Lord,” he said. “This will never happen to you!”

Mat 16:23  Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.”

Matt 16:21-23 (NLT)

Whose Report Will You Believe?

One sure promise that God has given to us concerning this year, is that there will be changes to the stories of our lives; changes that will glorify His Name and move us into His destined purposes for our lives in this season. Can you say “Amen” to that?

Now as God has spoken, you have a decision to make – you can either choose to believe the word that God has spoken and start declaring it over your life and situation, or you can choose to continue to look at the things that you see in the natural, and ignore the word that God has spoken. But please remember, whatever choice you do make, you will eat the fruits thereof. Selah

As Paul writes, “we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.” (Heb 10:39)

The enemy’s strategy has always been to position himself to challenge the truth of the word that God has spoken to His children, and to try to derail them as they pursue the fulfilment of the word in their lives; he did it with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, he did it with Jesus at the temptation and in the Garden of Gethsemane; and no doubt, he will try the same strategy against you.

As the enemy did with Peter in Matt 16:21-23, sometimes, he will even use the people that are close to us, to give us “well-meaning counsel” that will bring us out of alignment with the will of God and His timely purpose for the season that we are in.

“Do not be foolish and thoughtless, but understand and firmly grasp what the will of the Lord is…!”

Maybe even now as you read this, he has already started to Weave his web of deception and lies to confuse your mind and prise the word of faith from your heart, make you change what you see, so that he can make you change your confession….and this is only the second month into the new year!

We will end today’s meditation by reflecting on the reading of our second scripture text from the Amplified translation of the bible:

Eph 5:13  But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light [of God’s precepts], for  it is light that makes everything visible.

Eph 5:14  For this reason He says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine [as dawn] upon you and give you light.”

Eph 5:15  Therefore see that you walk carefully [living life with honor, purpose, and courage; shunning those who tolerate and enable evil], not as the unwise, but as wise [sensible, intelligent, discerning people],

Eph 5:16   making the very most of your time [on earth, recognizing and taking advantage of each opportunity and using it with wisdom and diligence], because the days are [filled with] evil.

Eph 5:17  Therefore do not be foolish and thoughtless, but understand and firmly grasp what the will of the Lord is.

Selah

Pastor Wale Ola

Prayer Focus

  • Lord let the words that I speak concerning my circumstances align with the word You have spoken concerning my destiny.
  • Dear Lord, please give me the wisdom to discern the counsel of man that is out of alignment with Your purpose for my life and my season.
  • Speak into and command every area of your life to obey the prophetic declaration that God has spoken concerning your life.
  • Prophesy into the month of March and call forth the release of every resource (material, financial, spiritual, human) that you will require to fulfil God’s agenda for your life in this new month.
  • Pray that as you have found favour with God, men will also honour, elevate, celebrate and favour you in Jesus’s Name. Amen.

February 2019 Fasting & Prayers — Day 1

Contending For Your Destiny

Scripture Reading: 1Timothy 1:18; Psalm 102:13

What did God say to you? What had He said to you concerning your destiny, your career, your ministry, your finances, your children, this year?

What lies has the enemy been speaking to you through the circumstances and situations that you are experiencing right now?

Whose report will you believe?

Some Questions To Answer

As we begin our fasting and prayers for the month of February, I will like us to consider a few more questions which I believe have been inspired by the Spirit of God to move us into alignment with His promises concerning this season, and that we can use to pray through to the victory that is ours in Christ for this year—

  • Can you relate to any of the issues listed below?

    • Do you feel as though you have been fighting an unending battle that you never seem to be able to get a break from?
    • Do you sometimes feel powerless and exhausted fighting against an enemy that seems to be too strong for you?
    • Stagnation?
    • Disappointments?
    • Hinderance?
    • Delay?

    If you have answered yes to any of those questions, please take some time to rejoice and celebrate the victory that you are about to experience over these challenges in this season of your life, as God exposes and destroys the operation of the spirit of Jezebel in your life!

    The spirit of Jezebel is not a person! It is the spirit of discouragement that fights against the prophetic word that has been spoken over your life and destiny.

    How The Spirit Operates

    The Spirit of Jezebel operates as strong demonic influences that stir up discouragement, weariness, jealously, resentment and suspicion, and is often vindictive toward the person who detects its presence or confronts its operation. It conspires to drive people to abort the progress and success of divinely ordained projects, purposes, relationships, organisation, potential and destinies.

    It will sometimes use false prophecies or so-called, dreams, visions or “insights from God” to bring fear, confusion and discouragement, in order to negate or counter a genuine word from God or work of God. It is a beguiling spirit that draws the unwitting in and recruits them as an army against the work of God in your life.

    The Warfare

    Remember as you examine the activities of this spirit that you will discover that you can be both the victim and perpetrator. As we deal with this spirit working against you, you also have to be aware that the spirit can use you as an instrument to discourage, hinder or sabotage the work or the plans of God in someone else’s life as well.

    The Victory

    When the Lord gives you victory over this spirit, you will notice that a veil will be lifted, and scales of deception will fall from your spiritual eyes or from the eyes of those that the enemy has beguiled and had been instigating against you to hinder your efforts. Truth will prevail and set you free from anything built upon fabrications, lies, falsehood and untruths.

    Shalom,

    Pastor Wale Ola

    Prayer Focus

    • Lord, let me hear clearly, Your instructions that I need to hear to walk in obedience to Your word.
    • Lord Unveil my eyes; let me know the truth of Your word concerning my life and every situation that I am in right now.
    • Expose and destroy the influence of every lie of the enemy that has been designed to sabotage your plans and purposes for my life.
    • Deliver me from every deception and the lies that the enemy has used to distract me or to resist my progress and promotion; whether through words, my thoughts, my emotions and feelings, offences, jealousy, false prophecies, dreams and visions that are not from God.
    • Uproot everything in my life and in the lives of my helpers, my thinking and my emotions, that has kept me in bondage to the spirit that has been deployed to hinder the fulfilment of your word concerning my life.
    • I declare the truth of Your word over my life (Psalm 102:13).

    January Prayer and Fasting Day 3 — (Thursday 31st)

    The River of God

    Scriptures For Meditation — Ezekiel 47:6-12

    Our scripture for meditation today is part of the key scriptures that God gave to us at the beginning of the year.

    In keeping with our prayer focus for our fasting this month, we’ll be using these verses to pray for souls for GLA and the prosperity of the ministry.

    God showed Prophet Ezekiel a vision of the River of God following out from the sanctuary down through the desert and finally emptying into the valley of the dead sea.

    Very significantly, the consequence or the impact of this River as it flows through the different regions that it touches, is quite profound!

    As the NLT translated verse 9,

    “There will be swarms of living things wherever the water of this river flows. Fish will abound in the Dead Sea, for its waters will become fresh. Life will flourish wherever this water flows.”

    And it goes on in verse 12 of the same translation:

    “Fruit trees of all kinds will grow along both sides of the river. The leaves of these trees will never turn brown and fall, and there will always be fruit on their branches. There will be a new crop every month, for they are watered by the river flowing from the Temple. The fruit will be for food and the leaves for healing.”

    There was freshness everywhere the River went. Dead things come alive and living things thrive even more; there’s prosperity on every side and barren desert places become fruitful. There will be sustained nourishment and every month will yield its increase!

    Oh that that same River will flow into our ministry; what a glorious change it would make in our lives!

    Let’s reach out to God and believe Him together for this miracle in Jesus’s Name!

    Shalom,

    Pastor Wale Ola

    Prayer Focus

    • Let’s pray for the River of God to flow into every part of this ministry and to bring revival.

    • Pray for God to bring healing and deliverance everywhere the River flows.

    • Pray for fruitfulness on every side; for the efforts and work of the ministry to bear fruit.

    • Bring every programme and ministry initiative we will be doing this year before God and pray for God’s blessing on them to prosper them.

    • Pray for souls to be saved and added to the church in abundance.

    • Pray that every month of this year will see souls saved and added to the church from all the nations of the world.

    • Pray that God will establish and cause those who are already planted in the church to flourish and be grounded in Him.

    An Obstacle To Overcome

    Scriptures For Meditation — 2Cor 4:1-4; Col 1:13

    Yesterday, we looked into the heart of the Father to see a heart that is relentless in the pursuit of sinners, not to punish them, but to love them into becoming His children.

    As was said also, we have been enlisted as co-workers to help in the realisation of this desire.

    In response to this, we have undertaken the task to partner with God in prayers over this fasting period to see His kingdom enlarge; however our commitment to this task, must go beyond simply praying: “Lord, please make it happen in Jesus’s Name”.

    We have to work smart!

    We need to understand and work with the knowledge of the critical truth expressed in our first scripture for today — we would be dealing with people whose minds have been blinded by the enemy, in order to prevent them from receiving the truth of the gospel that can save them and set them free; and then, some are bound and need to be loosed even after they get saved, in order to remain in the kingdom.

    Our Task

    Our Task today will be to use the authority that God has given to us in Christ Jesus, to remove the obstacles that stand in the way of realising the objective. (Matthew 28:18-20)

    Let’s go in the power of the Holy Ghost and see His kingdom come as souls are saved and added to His kingdom!

    Prayer Focus

    • Pray for the minds that have been blocked in resistance to the gospel to be opened and to become responsive to the truth.

    • Take authority over the lies of the enemy and cast down every imagination and knowledge that are being exalted above the word of God.

    • Unlock the prison doors of the strongholds that have kept the people bound, then loose the chains and set the captives free

    • Pray for God to provide opportunities and to orchestrate situations to witness the gospel to the unsaved.

    • Call forth the souls into God’s kingdom and also into our fellowship.

    Partnering With God

    Scriptures For Meditation: Matthew 9:35-38; Proverbs 11:30

    As I prepared to write the blog for this month’s fasting and prayers, a few thoughts came to my mind concerning what was the best way to capture and express what was on my heart concerning the focal point of our fasting.

    Then an overriding thought came to my mind as I considered this question:

    I wonder what’s on God’s mind?

    I wonder if God has any prayer points; but why would He? Seeing as all things were created by Him and for Him?

    But then I thought again; we spend so much time presenting our prayer lists before God; what about agreeing with Him on His own prayer point?

    If God had one prayer point, what would it be? That’s what I would want to pray about!

    Well, the answer to this question is not a super-spiritually discerned, theological revelation. It can be found by simply looking into the heart of the Father —

    The heart of the Father beats for souls to be saved and delivered from the damnation of hell.

    That’s the primary reason that He sent His Son Jesus Christ.

    It follows then, that we as believers, ought to partner with God, to see His will established on the earth by helping to bring His desire to pass.

    Our prayer this month will be our seed into the expansion of God’s kingdom.

    Whilst we are believing God for prosperity in our own personal lives; in our business, ministry, finances, careers, etc, we will be partnering in prayers with God over the next three days, to believe with Him for the expansion of His kingdom.

    Let’s burden our hearts with that one thing that we know is paramount in God’s heart. When Jesus declared that He will build His church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it, He was looking forward to you and I as believers and ransomed souls, to be the building blocks for His Church.

    What an awesome privilege!

    That the creator and possessor of the heavens and the earth will deem it fit to call us His children, co-labourers with Him and joint-heirs with Christ Jesus!

    How else can we begin repay that love than by reflecting that same love in our lives and through our actions to bring many more souls into God’s family?

    Can you say to the Lord today:

    Here I am Lord; send me. I’m available and willing to be used by you!

    Selah

    Pastor Wale Ola

    Prayer Focus

    • Let’s start by thanking God for this ministry; for God’s faithfulness through the years, for the souls that have been saved and touched by the ministry of this fellowship.
    • Let’s thank Him for all those people that He has used over the years to support and to serve in this ministry.
    • Let’s thank Him for the testimonies and the manifestation of His presence and blessings in our lives.
    • Let’s put our needs to the side for the moment and with our whole heart, pray and believe for souls to be saved and added to God’s kingdom.
    • As GLA Lighthouse is an extension of God’s kingdom, let’s pray that we will also see the manifestation of the expansion of His kingdom even in this ministry, as we experience supernatural growth and expansion in the year 2019 in Jesus’s Name.
    • Let’s each pray for God to show us how we can as individuals, be used more by Him in this year for the expansion of His kingdom.
    • Let’s pray for the Anointing and every empowerment and resource we need to be equipped to do this.
    February Fasting and Prayers — DAY 1

    February Fasting and Prayers — DAY 1

    STREAMS OF HEALING FLOW

    Main Scripture For Meditation— 1Kings 8:33-53

    Focus For This Month

    Our fasting and prayers for this month will focus on combining a few of the things that God has been saying to us over the past few weeks.

    He has spoken to us about our responsibilities as priests, about Streams of Healing flowing into the land, and at last Friday’s prayer service, we saw how God intervened in the affairs of a besieged nation by coming through for them miraculously to turn around a long-standing dire situation overnight.

    Each of the the three days of our prayers will Focus on three areas respectively:

    Our Land (Country / Nation)

    Our Homes (Families / Marriages / Children / Businesses/ Careers; etc)

    The Church (Universal / Local Assembly / Ministries)

    What touches the nation affects the homes, what affects the homes reflects on the church and vice versa!

    Priests Over The Nations

    We will be standing as priests on behalf of the nations, our homes and the church to ask that God will cause the streams of Healing to flow over and into these areas.

    We will petition God to bring healing and turn around those situations that have brought pain and discomfort, especially those long standing issues that have challenged the truth of God’s word and prophecies concerning our lives.

    Shalom,

    Pastor Wale Ola

    January Prayer and Fasting Day 1

    January Prayer and Fasting Day 1

    The River of God

    Scriptures For Meditation — Ezekiel 47:1-12

    God showed Prophet Ezekiel a vision of the River of God flowing out from the sanctuary down through the desert and finally emptying into the valley of the dead sea.

    Very significantly, we will notice that as God led the prophet away from the Temple and onto the streets, the depth of the river continued to increase the further away from the Temple He was. Also, the consequence or the impact of this River as it flows through the different regions that it touches, is quite profound!

    As the NLT bible translated verse 9,

    “There will be swarms of living things wherever the water of this river flows. Fish will abound in the Dead Sea, for its waters will become fresh. Life will flourish wherever this water flows.”

    And it goes on in verse 12 of the same translation:

    “Fruit trees of all kinds will grow along both sides of the river. The leaves of these trees will never turn brown and fall, and there will always be fruit on their branches. There will be a new crop every month, for they are watered by the river flowing from the Temple. The fruit will be for food and the leaves for healing.”

    Dead things come alive and living things thrive even more; there’s prosperity on every side and barren desert places become fruitful. There will be sustained nourishment and every month will yield its increase!

    Oh that that same River will flow into our ministry, our homes and our nation. What a glorious change it would make in our lives!

    Let’s reach out to God and believe Him together for this miracle in Jesus’s Name!

    Shalom,

    Pastor Wale Ola

    Prayer Focus

    In keeping with our prayer focus for our fasting this month, we’ll be using these verses to pray for souls for GLA and the prosperity of the ministry, our nation(s) ourselves and our families.

    • First , let’s pray for God to take us deeper in our walk with Him and cause His presence to be tangibly manifest in every area of our lives.

    • Let’s pray for the River of God to flow into every part of this ministry, into our homes and all across this nation and to bring revival wherever it flows.

    End of Year Fasting and Prayers (Days 7 – 18)

    End of Year Fasting and Prayers (Days 7 – 18)

    Speak Forth…

    Scriptures For Meditation — Ps 139:15-16; Matthew 6:9-13; Matthew 18:18-20

    Welcome to Day 7 of our 21-day fasting and prayers.

    Over the next 12 days, we will be praying prophetically into each of the months of the coming year from January to December, focusing on each month on each day.

    As the Bible says of our God in Psalm 139:15-16,

    You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.

    You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

    Every single on of our days was fashioned by God before we were even born. Think about that for a moment — God, the Architect and Builder of our lives, had His Masterplan and the divine script for our lives drawn out before we came to be physically.

    That’s why the Bible says in Romans 4:17, that God brings the dead back to life and He creates new things out of nothing — He calls the things that do not yet exist as though they were. Because He speaks according to what He had already purposed concerning that thing.

    With that understanding, we must realise that 2020 did not catch God unawares, and the coming days in 2021 and even up till eternity have been intricately mapped out in His divine plan, and that He has an agenda already established for your life as His perfect will for you to fulfil.

    Let’s all come together and stand in agreement, as we pray for the will of God concerning us to be fulfilled in Jesus’s Name.

    Prayer Guideline For Days 7-18

    1. As we pray Into 2021, we will be praying that our lives will agree with, align with and mirror only what God has ordained for us as His perfect will for the year.

    2. We will be praying for the nation in which we live, that the policies and governance will favour us and our wellbeing.

    3. We will pray that God will honour His word (Ex 23:25) that He will bless our bread and water and take sickness away from our midst, and keep our households safe from all sickness and affliction.

    And also, we will pray that as the inevitable economic effects of the pandemic begin to manifest in different areas of the economy, God will preserve us, protect and cover us from these negative effects, and prosper the work of our hands and bless our labour in Jesus’s Name.

    4. We will pray for the establishment that we work with, institution /school that we study in or the industry that we are a part of, that God will grant us favour to excel, prosper and walk upon our high places.

    5. We will pray for God to bless the ministry of this church, direction for the leadership, spiritual, numerical and material growth and tangible impact and effectiveness in the ministry and lives of our church family.

    6. We will also intercede for every member of this church and their household, for God to keep, protect and prosper them, and work miracles in their lives to answer the petitions that they have long believed God for, in 2021

    7. We will stand in agreement with our brethren, that 2021 will be a year of unparalleled favour, advancement and prosperity in Jesus’s Name.

    8. We declare that our lives are hid with Christ in God; we speak the peace of Christ into every month and pray for God to frustrate every plan of the devil to steal, kill or destroy.

    9. Bring your personal prayer requests before God; ask Him for clarity of vision and His direction for your life for the year 2021.

    10. Pray For the release of all the resources that you need for His will to be fulfilled in your life and for your vision for the year to be accomplished.

    11. Listen to the Holy Spirit and write down what He will will minister to you as you pray.

    12. End each day with prophetic declarations about how your life will be, how this ministry will be and how your nation will be, thanking God for answering the prayers that we have brought before Him.

    Amen

    SURE FOOTED AND SAFE

    Scriptures For Meditation — Habakkuk 3:19; Phil 2:9-11; Eph 2:4-6

    We have talked about two kinds of high places in the past two days — the high places from where demonic altars and powers of darkness operate, and the High Place were the Lord God almighty is seated on His Throne in majesty above the heavens.

    Today we’ll be looking at another high places that the bible talks about in Habakkuk 3:19 —

    The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.

    This verse of scripture short as it is, powerfully captures a statement of faith by prophet Habakkuk, who had in the preceding two verses spoken a declaration of his trust in God, even in spite of contrary situations. Here, he tells us the reason for his unshaken confidence in God —

    1. The Lord God is my strength.

    This is an acknowledgment of Jehovah as the Source of His sustenance. Even if the harvest were to fail and the storehouse were to be empty, he was confident that his sustenance will not be determined by these things, as Jehovah would take care of Him and uphold him.

    2. He will make my feet like hind’s feet.

    Hinds (deers) are gifted with sure-footed ness as they navigate the rocky terrains of the mountainous heights that other animals can’t reach.

    The Hind is a very graceful animal that glides through rocky obstacles effortlessly and purposefully. Habakkuk was declaring here that God would make his feet suitable for both the task and the terrain he has to pass through.

    3. He will make me walk upon my high places.

    As the deer bounds up those hills, due to its purposely adapted feet, it is secure and safe because it’s adversaries are unable to pursue it onto the heights that it can reach.

    Friend, there’s a high place in Christ that God has prepared for you. A place where the enemy cannot follow you into. It is a place of security, promotion and advancement; it is a place of victory and a place of Holiness. And you will get there in Jesus’s Name because God has prepared you specially to fulfill your purpose and bring glory to His Name.

    Selah

    Pastor Wale Ola

    Prayer Focus

    Let’s also make the declarations that Habakkuk made in this text. He is your strength and your buckler.

    Ask him to make you sure footed as you navigate the path that He has ordained for you to walk in.

    Pray that He will take you far above the reach or sight of the enemy and cause you to walk upon your high places as He has written concerning your life.

    End of Year Fasting and Prayers (Day 5 of 21)

    End of Year Fasting and Prayers (Day 5 of 21)

    Jehovah El-Elyon

    Scriptures For Meditation — Judges 6:25-28; Phil 2:9-11; Eph 1:19-22

    In yesterday’s blog, we spoke about the“high places” of the powers of darkness and Satan’s inordinate ambition and his abject failure to exalt himself and his throne above God’s dominion and authority.

    The bible tells us that our God, Jehovah, is the Most High God. There is no throne or dominion or kingdom that is higher than His Authority. He is the Creator, Controller and Possessor of all things visible and invisible. His Majesty is unparalleled and His Power is without limits.

    Concerning His Son Jesus Christ who He has made to be the heir of all things, the Bible also tells us that—

    God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Phil 2:9-11)

    And again, that He is head over all principalities and powers and thrones and dominions.

    So when we prayed yesterday for God to take down all the demonic altars that are operating against us from the high places of the powers of darkness, we are praying from a position of authority and assured victory because we speak and stand in the Name of Jesus.

    God told Gideon —

    Jdg 6:25 That night the LORD said to Gideon, “Take the second bull from your father’s herd, the one that is seven years old. Pull down your father’s altar to Baal, and cut down the Asherah pole standing beside it.

    Jdg 6:26 Then build an altar to the LORD your God here on this hilltop sanctuary, laying the stones carefully. Sacrifice the bull as a burnt offering on the altar, using as fuel the wood of the Asherah pole you cut down.”

    Jdg 6:27 So Gideon took ten of his servants and did as the LORD had commanded. But he did it at night because he was afraid of the other members of his father’s household and the people of the town.

    Jdg 6:28 Early the next morning, as the people of the town began to stir, someone discovered that the altar of Baal had been broken down and that the Asherah pole beside it had been cut down. In their place a new altar had been built, and on it were the remains of the bull that had been sacrificed.

    Friends, it is not enough for us to just take down the Satanic altars; we must also replace them with a new altar to the Most High God —

    There cannot, must not be a “power vacuum” in our lives!

    Prayer Focus

    Today, we are going to raise an altar to the One and only True and Living God on the high places, give Him the highest praise and worship and bring our sacrifices of thanksgiving to Him.

    First, let’s pray for ourselves, what Paul prayed for the Church at Ephesus —

    Eph 1:19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power

    Eph 1:20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.

    Eph 1:21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come.

    Eph 1:22 God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church.

    Let’s lift up our voices and declare His majesty over every area of our lives.

    Let’s enforce His authority and victory over our lives and every situation that we may be going through.

    Let’s pray that every contrary situation in our lives and household will bow before the awesomeness of His power and align with His counsel concerning our destinies in Jesus’s Name.

    Shalom,

    Tearing Down The Strange Altars

    Scriptures For Meditation — Judges 6:1-27; 2Kings 23:1-8; Eph 6:12

    Welcome to Day 4 of our corporate fasting and prayers. Over the next 3 days, we will be dealing with High Places, as a preparation to praying and prophesying into each month of the coming year 2021, from Day 7.

    Today, the focus will be on tearing down the altars on the high places of the kingdom of darkness.

    As the bible tells us in Eph 6:12

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    In bible times, the priests and worshippers of the demon gods would often situate the altars to their deities on the high places. This is also in keeping with the desire of Satan to exalt his throne above the throne of God as the bible tells us in Isaiah 14:12-17

    Isa 14:12 “How you are fallen from heaven, O shining star, son of the morning! You have been thrown down to the earth, you who destroyed the nations of the world.

    Isa 14:13 For you said to yourself, ‘I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God’s stars. I will preside on the mountain of the gods far away in the north.

    Isa 14:14 I will climb to the highest heavens and be like the Most High.’

    Isa 14:15 Instead, you will be brought down to the place of the dead, down to its lowest depths.

    Isa 14:16 Everyone there will stare at you and ask, ‘Can this be the one who shook the earth and made the kingdoms of the world tremble?

    Isa 14:17 Is this the one who destroyed the world and made it into a wasteland? Is this the king who demolished the world’s greatest cities and had no mercy on his prisoners?’

    As we read in our opening two Scriptures today, in both Gideon’s and Josiah’s lives, tearing down of demonic altars and getting rid of tokens of idolatry were the precursors to revival and restoration.

    Today, we will be doing the same. We are going to tear down every demonic altar from which the enemy has been speaking against our lives and destinies.

    We will also allow God to search our lives and expose whatever altars we may ourselves have built in our lives that have empowered the works of darkness in, or against us.

    Shalom!

    Pastor Wale Ola

    PRAYER FOCUS

    Let’s ask God to reveal whatever has become an idol in our lives that is hindering our walk with Him or His work in our lives.

    Let’s repent and remove every token of idolatry from our lives —Those things that have taken the place of God in our lives; those things that have stood between us and the will of God, preventing us from giving Him all the worship and adoration that are due to Him.

    Let’s also ask that God will remove us from the influence of whatever satanic altars that may be active and operational in our family lines that are working against us, and are opening us to demonic Interference. (We saw how Gideon suffered the consequences of this in his life until God instructed him to tear it down)

    Let’s pray that God will frustrate and destroy all the works of the enemy that he has fashioned against us, and let’s declare by faith, that it is only the counsel of the Lord that will stand in our lives and in our household in Jesus’s Name.

    Let’s thank God for coming to our aid and for protecting and delivering us from the plans and wiles of the enemy against us.

    Strength In Waiting

    Scriptures For Meditation — Isaiah 40:1-31; Phil 4:13; Eph 3:14-16

    As we continue on the third day of our end of year fasting, the focus of our prayers today is to first ask for the breath of the Holy Spirit to minister a refreshing to us.

    For many people, the year 2020 has been a year that’s taken a lot out of them for different reasons. All the plans that many started the year with; the hopes and aspirations for the year, the expectations for business, career, ministry, family, and different areas of their lives — all now seem to have been consigned into the pit of disappointment.

    As a result of this, many people are discouraged and have become battle weary from what seems to be another wasted year of waiting and relentless fighting for the changes they had believed and hoped for.

    But friend, know that our God is not limited by the dictates of time and seasons. He is the Author and Keeper of time — Your times are in His hands. His promises concerning your life are still on course to be fulfilled.

    I pray for you that God as He gives you the grace to continue to stand strong, will refresh your spirit and strengthen your hands to keep holding on and your heart to keep believing in the word that He had spoken to you.

    As David said in Psa 42:5 —

    Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.

    Shalom!
    Pastor Wale Ola

    PRAYER FOCUS

    Pray to God for a supernatural refreshing of the Holy Spirit.

    Pray for the strength to wait on Him over this period of fasting.

    Pray for a fresh anointing to come upon you to revive your spirit.

    Pray that your ears will be open to receive with charity, the instructions and directions that God will speak to you concerning your life and the coming year.

    A Reason To Be Thankful

    Scriptures For Meditation — Gen 1:1-4; 1Thes 5:18

    The birth of our world began with the most chaotic mess that the universe will ever experience – void of God’s presence, devoid of His glory, bereft of His structure and order; and then there was the utter unimaginable darkness, that enveloped the mess that then was the earth.

    Maybe you can identify in one way or the other with those absences in your life right now – the mess, the void, the darkness, the hopelessness.

    But see one thing, even as woeful as things appeared to be at the scene, the Spirit of God was still there, hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God spoke the word: “Let there be light”; and there was light. It was a good light. Then God began to separate the light from the darkness…disorder and chaos gave way to divinely structured order. Where once there was a void, His Shekinah Glory became preeminent.

    This can be the story of your life in the coming year. God wants to create a miracle out of your disappointments, a river of joy out of the tears of frustration and despair that you have cried.

    He himself has said that He will never leave you nor forsake you. His Holy Spirit is hovering over you right now, hovering over that situation, waiting for the word of the Lord to be released over you, so that He can act upon the word – He watches over His word to perform it!

    That is why with that knowledge, what He is asking you to do today, what we are going to do today the second day of our fast, is to spend quality time thanking God.

    PRAYER FOCUS

    We thank Him for what He has done so far; that we are even alive to see this day, for His mercies and grace upon our lives, for keeping us in His love.

    We thank Him in advance for the promises and victories of the coming year, believing Him when He said in His word, that the glory of the latter days shall be greater than the former!

    We thank Him not only for being alive, but more importantly, being alive in Christ. That we are still standing, and we have not lost our praise, that our faith in Him has not failed!

    Find something specifically in your life or family that you want to thank God for.

    CONSECRATION and DEDICATION

    Scripture For Meditation — Joshua 3:5 NIV; Philippians 2:13 NIV

    1. As we begin our fasting and prayers, start with thanksgiving, praise and worship. READ: Psalm 107 —

    If it had not been for the Lord on our side, where would we have been.

    Through the good times and the bad times, His love and mercy have been constant. When we have been good, it was He who helped us; when we have erred, He has been merciful; when we have been down, He has sustained us; When it looked like we were going to drown in the pool of despair and troubles, somehow God kept us afloat. He is ever faithful!

    2. Consecrate (purify, sanctify) yourself. In order words, examine yourself, asking God for mercy and cleansing through the blood of Jesus Christ, where you have erred or gone astray.

    3. Spend quality time to wait in God’s presence, rededicating yourself to Christ. Pledge your allegiance to Him again, while seeking to know Him more. Surrender to Him, ask Him to to fill you with His fullness.

    PRAYER FOCUS

    • Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalms 139:23-24 NIV)

    • But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression. (Psalms 19:12-13 NIV)

    • Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. (Psalms 51:10-12 NIV)

    • Fill me with more of You, and work in me to will and to act in order to fulfill Your good purpose.

    In Jesus’ name — Amen!

    Shalom
