Annie led in worship…

♪ I give You my all… Withholding nothing… I give You my all… All that I am… For You gave us all… Withholding nothing… I give You my all… Take this vessel of clay in Your hands… ♪

I was thinking about how over the years, we have chosen to come into this chapel thousands of times and how we can keep doing it and not have it become a routine. A lady that hadn’t been here for a few years came back a few weeks ago and she said, “I forgot how easy it is in this chapel to get in the presence and to pray.” The time spent in this room worshiping and yielding to God has made a difference in this room. That’s the only way I know to put that.

Jesus was directed and led by the Spirit to do the things that He did and He went all the way through in victory. Nothing was routine with Him. It wasn’t the same ole, same ole. I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Holy Spirit is here and He’s always faithful to direct us and lead us. The Bible says He hears our prayers. Of course, if we aren’t careful, we can get into a routine of doing the same thing. To keep it from being routine, we must keep seeking Him and expect the new.

In Hebrews 13:15, “Through Him, therefore, let us at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name.” I wanted to remind us today that it’s not any one of us that come up with the plan. He does. And it’s always His plan that we want to pray out. I know there are prayers of agreement and things that we know we lift up. I understand that. Routine can happen, for instance, if you had a revelation about something and then you kept doing that until it becomes a religious ritual or work. We must continually remind ourselves that God is not routine.

To go back to what I started to say before, I had a discussion with someone yesterday about prayer and we were talking about how that works but knowing that every time we come together, it’s a new work, a new plan, a new deal. It blows me away, just the bigness of who God is and it’s hard to explain to someone that has never been in it. But when we’re in it, we know that when we’re faithful to get in our hearts … and that’s what I feel, Miss Annie, you do that all the time. You’re in your heart when you start lifting up your voice, worshiping the Lord. That’s comforting. I love music and am drawn to it and I need it. But I know music is not the Holy Spirit, of course. But music helps us to get out of our own minds and focus on Him. It’s through Him that we come to Him. It’s by His direction that we come to Him. It’s Him. It’s all Him. So when we know that, we know every time we come before Him, He’s in our midst because He said He would be. And if He’s here, then we’re where we need to be in Him.

This kept coming to me when you were talking and I’m not sure why. One day in here, this thought came to me and I thought, “Lord, You are the most satisfying thing. You’re the only thing in life that satisfies us. And, yet, You make us more hungry and dissatisfied.” How does that work? Like the Bible says, “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but it is the glory of kings to search a matter out.” I think we’ll search that matter out for ever and ever. We’ll never get to the bottom of who He is and yet when we drink of Him, we’re so satisfied. But then it makes us thirstier.


We want more of You in our lives, Lord
Wherever we have not made room for You in our lives, we repent
We want to open our hearts more today, right now to Your precious ways and plans

Annie led in worship…

♪ We need You more than yesterday… We need You more, more than words can say… We need You more than ever before, we need You more, we need You more… More than the air I breathe, more than the song I sing, more than the next heart beat, more than anything, Lord, as time goes by I will be by Your side cuz I never want to go back to my old life… I need You more, more than yesterday… I need You more, more than words can say… I need You more than ever before, I need You more, I need You more… ♪

Continued praying…

Lord, we want You more
We yield and open our hearts for more
Trust, rely upon, think about You, opening our hearts for more of You

Verse 16 says, “Do not neglect to do good, to contribute [to the needy of the church as an expression of fellowship], for such sacrifices are always pleasing to God.” Verse 20 says, “Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament), Verse 21 “Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages). Amen (so be it).”


We receive Your comfort and peace and Your will
We receive Your equipping inside of us to do everything that we can do for You
Working in us and through us

Word came forth…

A stable Church, that’s what I’ve called for it to be. A stabilized Church is what I’ve spoken for it to be. For the Church that is stable and the Church that stabilizing itself in and on Me covered in the blood will do work, pray, fulfill what I’ve called the Church to do. I’m calling even this day for the Church to rise up in a new way. I’m speaking to the body of Christ in these days not just one little part of the body but the whole body across the face of the earth. Things are stirring up. It’ll never be the same way. Things are new. New things are unfolding. I’m speaking to the Church and saying, Be stable in Me, for it is My strength, the anointing resident within you that will take you to do what I’ve called you to do.


The peace that passes all understanding
Equipped, enabled, and strengthened within to work without, to get out of the boundaries
To walk in places we’ve never walked before
Speaking with words of authority we’ve never spoken before
Speaking by the spirit
Declaring in the spirit
These days and plans shall unfold and they will be new
For this is a new day and these are new hours
These are the last of the last, but My Church will rise up in Holy Ghost power
The anointing and authority and revelation of how He is will take us through
Things are speeding up
Men that do not know Him are trying to derail the Church and get it into a routine religious way
Receive from Him and be the salt He’s called them to be
Every second spent in His presence takes you further to the place you should go
Inroads… roads into specific plans
Deleting some things… cutting them out and stepping away
Laying hold of it… we claim it and call it forth
Prisons, we declare and speak the word of life into the prisons of our nation
We call forth revival in prisons in America in Jesus’ name
A complete turnaround, a paradigm shift, a turn to the right way
See it, watch over it, and bring it forth in Jesus’ name

As we prayed, I saw double doors, and us pray-ers were on one side and the doors were closed. All of a sudden, both doors swung wide open and I saw the King of Kings and Lord of Lords on the other side. He said, “Come on in because you’ll come on up.” And on the other side of the doors were words. Words! Declarations. New words. And not just in our English language but words in other tongues for the nations. They were there for us to receive and speak forth. When He said, “Come on in…” He was saying “Come and take My words and speak them out.”

So when you sense in your spirit that you’re in a routine, doing the same things, saying the same things, watching the same results, step through the double doors with Me and I’ll show you what to say and it’ll be from Me and those words will make a brand new day and change situations.

Today by the power of the Holy Spirit, we take this and receive this that when we come before the King of Kings, the door has been opened and we have access. We, by faith, receive a different tongue—new, fresh tongues by the Spirit of God. This is what I’m hearing. The world is waiting for the pray-ers to speak, for the changes have been planned but the words must be spoken across the nations to bring about what God has planned to come about. It’s the spirit of seeing and knowing in operation.

When you were singing, it reminded me of brother Savelle’s word for 2016 about “more.” He said extraordinary things are taking place in the heavenlies and 2016 will come to be known as the year of the great breaking loose. More and more notable miracles will break loose in the earth. “More and more signs and wonders, more and more angelic visitations, more and more instant healings, more and more deliverances from demonic activity, and more and more finances will break loose so My people can do more for the kingdom,” saith the Lord. “And during this time of the great breaking loose, the enemy will no longer be able to hold back that which My faithful ones have stood in faith for—not even the things that looked as though they would never come to pass. For I will cause them to break loose and to suddenly manifest and to do so in such a way that no one will be able to deny the greatness of your God. Yes, 2016 will be a year in which the faithful shall be rewarded beyond their highest expectations and they shall abound in My blessings as never before.”

Isn’t that good?
