“We have made the journey, and now we are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem! What a magnificent city! Buildings so close together, so compact. God’s people belong here. Every tribe of the Eternal makes its way to Jerusalem-Just as God decreed for Israel to come together and give thanks to the Eternal.” Psalm 122:2-4 Voice
Georgian and Winnie are already in Israel awaiting the arrival of our Amazing, God-Ordained, Divinely-Picked team who are traveling there today. Our dear friends Brian and Candace Simmons (lead translators of The Passion Translation) will also be joining our group, who along with the Banovs, will deliver life-changing messages and give deeper understanding to the accounts of the Bible.
Every year this is such a wonderful, anointed, Spirit-filled adventure for all – beginning with gathering at the airport, bonding as they travel, arriving as a team, ministering throughout the Holy Land, and returning home with breathtaking memories and powerful testimonies of all the things that God did!
“O Jerusalem, may there be peace for those who dwell inside your walls and prosperity in your every palace. I intercede for the sake of my family and friends who dwell there, that they may all live in peace!” Psalm 122:7-8 Passion
Continue to lift them in prayer as they travel throughout Israel. They will again be bringing food to the widows and pouring out His rich love to everyone in the Palestinian refugee camps, praying for the wounded and sick in the hospital, sharing the Good News and ministering to as many as they can reach as they travel from one area to another.
Pray for Divine Protection, Divine Strength, Divine Health, Divine Rest, Divine Provision, Divine Guidance, and Divine Wisdom for every move they make and in every place they go to
Pray for God to be filling them daily with a continual flow of His Fresh, Blissfully Joyful, Powerfully Loving Anointing that will change atmospheres and touch everyone and every place they come in contact with.
“Wherever they are, they will be fine, never hungry nor thirsty. They will be protected…because the One who loves them-as a mother loves her child-will be their guide. God will lead them to restful places, rejuvenating springs of water. I will make their going easy, level the mountain road and smooth the path that leads them home. Look! Even now, they are coming from lands far away, some from the north, others from the west…” Isaiah 49:10-12 Voice
As I was spending time with God this morning and praying for this trip, I opened up my copy of Patricia King’s book Decree. It turned right to the chapter entitled Blessing. I felt that the Lord wanted me to start declaring some of what was written there over our team. See what is written below and declare these words over them with me:
“Nothing but blessing is permitted to come into their lives or sphere of influence. They are blessed and are called to be a blessing. Through their life in Jesus, nations are blessed. Blessings come upon them and overtake them. Blessings are attracted to them. They are blessing magnets. They are blessed coming in and blessed going out. They are blessed in the city and blessed in the field. The heavens are open over their lives and the rain of God’s abundant goodness falls on them and all that pertains to them. No good thing has He withheld from them. They are blessed in everything they put their hands to!”
Yes and Amen!
