WEEK ONE: January 1st-7th  Receiving the Mercy of the New Covenant

Seven Spheres of Influence (Mountain) focus this week is FAMILY

Some Key Scriptures: Hebrews 7:22, 9:15; 12:24; Ephesians 2:13, 1 Cor 11:23-25

As we intercede and keep watch for FAMILY throughout Australia, we are reminded that it was Christ’s blood poured out to save us and our households.

Jesus constantly intercedes on our behalf to see our families, ultimately His family fully restored over Australia. Holy Spirit also interceding through us for all Australian families.

Scripture says at the Throne of Grace Jesus’s blood is speaking a better word than vengeance and that word is MERCY! Mercy over our sin and the sin of families – this cry of mercy extends to everyone who calls on the Name of Jesus. His blood flows over all and His mercy flows with healing for every heart, and soul.

We also are required by the Lord to release our family members through the same mercy with forgiveness. We are to repent of any resentment, hatred, un-forgiveness or any other way we have sinned against them. Repentance is needed where we have misrepresented Jesus and the love of the Father, especially to the younger generations, where we have not spoken words of life over them and decreed blessing.

There is mercy flowing as the blood of the Lamb cleanses us from all unrighteousness.

Now we are fully able to take up the sword of victory and pursue and surely recover all! (1 Samuel 30:8)

As you pray this week see yourself plundering the enemies camp recovering all – restoration of families everywhere.

Let the Lord prepare our hearts to love those he is bringing into His family!

Praise Jesus who has gathered us and reconciled us to the Father making a way by his own body and blood.

WEEK TWO: January 8th – 14th  

Praying ten minutes 3 times a day 7 am, Noon, 7 pm. Jan 1st – Feb 24th 2019

 

Engaging with The Spirit of Truth

Seven Spheres of Influence (Mountain) focus this week is MEDIA

Some Key Scriptures: John 15:26; 16:13; 17:17; 2 Tim 1:14

Thank you for hearing the call to pray, joining as one to receive the Lords mercy for Australia and release mercy to others. The strategy given from heaven is “When my people will come together as one and pray for 55 days, I will rebuild the walls and restore the gates of this nation!” – Ps Ann Browne.  

Let us continue to set our alarms to 7am – noon – 7pm praying for at least 10 minutes as heeding this call is mobilizing a great army in intercession for Australia.

This week January 8th to 14th we are invited to engage with The Spirit of Truth – Jesus describes himself as the way, the truth, and the life, and as such he is the only means to the Father (John 14:16). Even when Jesus ascended to heaven, the ministry of truth would continue because he sent the Comforter, who is the Spirit of Truth (John 14:17), who is active both in the church as well as in the world.

Jesus, as the Word become flesh, is full of grace and truth (John 1:14), and is the source of grace and truth (John 1:17). He sent the Spirit of Truth (Holy Spirit) to guide us into all truth, speaking to us what the Father says to us about Jesus and to disclose to us what is to come (John 16:13). The Spirit of Truth is to abide with us forever, we know Him because He dwells in us and with us (John 14:16-17). As we worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, as we study and engage with the characteristic of truth of our Lord we are sanctified in truth (John 17:17), set free (John 8:31) we will then speak the truth (Zec 8:15-16).

When Jesus spoke the truth, some sought to kill him (John 8:40). This is because those who contended with Jesus were ultimately of their father the devil, who has no truth in him whatsoever (John 8:44-46).

 

  • Ask for truth in our own inner most being, let Spirit of Truth search us
  • That Australia will know the truth, and the truthwill set us free
  • Ask that hidden schemes of the enemy be revealed by truth and light
  • Continue to worship the Lord in spirit and truth
  • Carry the realm of truth as you go out into the world – speak the truth in love
  • Pray, declare and decree His word which is truth over our Nation

As we pray for the MEDIA this week, we recognize the massive influence all forms of media (visual, written & social) have in Australia. There is a great responsibility for those leaders of the media mountain in our nation to line up with the truth of Jesus.

Let us pray for shifts in morals and values in the media to line up with the Kingdom of God. Let us take our petitions to the Throne of Grace to receive mercy and grace to help overcome anything that does not line up with righteousness and justice. Where there is moral decay and the things described in Ephesians 4:17-20 pray that the truth and life of Jesus be personified in those who create and deliver the media that is released over Australia. Ask for a repositioning to righteousness, truth and wisdom for those with leadership and influence.

Intercede for social media to be cleansed, and that truth and light guide those who post things on every form of social media. Let us see mammon, greed, idolatry, selfish ambition, pride and lust be eradicated and truth, justice, love and mercy prevail.

Media has tremendous power of the airwaves over this nation, with tremendous opportunity to share the gospel and teach Kingdom values. Much of it however is given over to distract, distort, blind, corrupt or discredit truth consequently may bring destruction through lies and deception. Pray for the Spirit of truth to bring conviction of sin in these areas and for those in darkness to see the light (Col 1:13). Raise up discernment in the believers to stay in the light.

As we decree the word of truth over this nation this week –

  • Let there be wave upon wave of love and mercy flowing out over the airwaves of Australia washing her clean.
  • Let words of life and a call to salvation come through all forms of the media.
  • Let truth be written and spoken in our nation confounding the enemy and displacing the destructive lies and deception.
  • Let the Lords kindness lead Australia to repentance.
  • Let the fragrance of Christ be on our media so there is life for those being saved! Shine your light Lord and dispel the darkness and corruption.
  • May Jesus be magnified and every lie be exposed. May Jesus be glorified over the Media in this nation, thy kingdom come! Australia for Jesus.

WEEK THREE: January 15th – 21st  

Praying ten minutes 3 times a day 7 am, Noon, 7 pm. Jan 1st – Feb 24th 2019

Spirit of Wisdom

Seven Spheres of Influence (Mountain) focus this week is Government

Some Key Scriptures: Ephesians 1; 2 Chronicles1:10-12; Daniel 1:20; 2:14; 2:21

The strategy given from heaven is “When my people will come together as one and pray for 55 days, I will rebuild the walls and restore the gates of this nation!” Pastor Ann Browne

 

“I pray that the Father of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know him through your deepening intimacy with him.” Ephesians 1:17 TPT

 

“Become intimate with Him in whatever you do, and He will lead you wherever you go. Don’t think for a moment that you know it all, for wisdom comes when you adore Him with awe and wonder and avoid everything that’s wrong. For then you will find the healing refreshment your body and spirit long for.” (Proverbs 3:6-7 The Passion Translation)

“This is why I have never stopped praying for you since I heard about you. I ask God that you may know what He wants you to do. I ask God to fill you with the wisdom and understanding the Holy Spirit gives.” Colossians 1:9 New Life Version (NLV)

 

Wisdom gives us the keys to unlock the treasures of true knowledge (Prov 1:2) and imparts spiritual understanding in our lives in Christ, and is vital for overcoming. James 1:5 tells us if we lack wisdom to simply ask. Wisdom is given by God (Eph 1:17). Words of wisdom are important when faced by opposition – Jesus instructs us in Luke 21:15 AMPC “For I [Myself] will give you a mouth and such utterance and wisdom that all of your foes combined will be unable to stand against or refute.” Wisdom is a gift of the Spirit (1 Cor 12:8) Psalm 90:12 says “So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom.”

Key Prayer Points may include:

  • Ask for wisdom for ourselves and our nation, thank Him for wisdom already given and that we grow in wisdom, listen to wisdom and love wisdom.
  • Pray Pauls’ prayer in Ephesians 1:15-23 for all in the church, and for Australia.

As we pray for GOVERNMENT this week, we recognize there is an immense struggle for control in Australia. We need wisdom in government not control. We are greatly encouraged as Isaiah 9:6-7 reminds us that “For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from the [latter] time forth, even forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

Scripture urges us to pray for those in government, leadership and authority in 1 Timothy 2:2(NKJV) “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

 

Proverbs 14:34 Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.

Key Prayer Points may include:

  • Thank God and decree that the government is upon His shoulder…and of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end. May His kingdom be established and upheld with justice and righteousness from now and forever more.
  • For all Christians in Australia to partner with wisdom in becoming effective righteous voices – calling for laws that release the Lords justice.
  • Repent for expecting the government, leaders and authorities to fulfil every desire and need of the people (Idolatry) and for criticising and judging them when they fail to do so. Confess our sin as a nation for grumbling and complaining when we have lacked wisdom. Thank Him for mercy and grace to help Australia.
  • Repent for the church stepping back – leaving very few to speak for righteousness in the public arenas, and for when we failed to support those who do speak out.
  • Ask the Lord to raise up elected officials in government to legislate on behalf of his goodness to all. Those like William Wilberforce to be The Lords voice in our generation.
  • Ask for leaders in all arenas to have perseverance and good character (2 Pet 1:2-11)
  • To raise governmental, marketplace and church leaders to stem the tide of godlessness and lawlessness and shift Australia back to holiness and biblical alignment. Leaders willing to walk in and establish righteousness, equity, truth and justice.
  • Ask the Lord to raise up legal reformers to redeem the judicial system.
  • Give thanks and pray for our Prime Minister Scott Morrison and all those in leadership of our nation in government, marketplace and the church.
  • May leaders of government have favour with God and man, close trusted relationships, courage and God chosen mentors to offer wise counsel. Give them wisdom and inspiration to tackle projects that are of utmost importance for our nation. Give them strength for the fight against injustice. Give us governmental systems based on biblical principles, with checks and balances without corruption or self-serving.
  • Pray for righteous leaders of governments of every level to rise up, to work together, pray and seek the Lord for the transformation of our nation.
  • Raise up leaders in the marketplace, government and the church to work together, remove the independence, competition and backbiting. Let trust, honouring and respect be built in our parliament and leadership of Australia.

Lord may we as your church support the government leaders who are standing for righteousness and justice with both our prayer and action. Pastor Danielle Dixon from Cairns Queensland heard the call for nations to pray for mercy last year and it was posted internationally on Elijah’s List it is well worth reading! click on this link http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word.html?ID=20467

WEEK FOUR: January 22nd – 28th                                                

Praying ten minutes 3 times a day 7 am, Noon, 7 pm. Jan 1st – Feb 24th 2019

FAITH – BELIEVE

Seven Spheres of Influence (Mountain) focus this week is Religion/Church

Some Key Scriptures: Mark 9:24; 11:23-24; 16:15-18; Hebrews 11:6

The strategy given from heaven is “When my people will come together as one and pray for 55 days, I will rebuild the walls and restore the gates of this nation!” – Ps Ann Browne.

The Lord is rebuilding the walls as we pray – let us rally to one another to help as the trumpet sounds. (Neh 4:19-20) God is mobilizing a great army in intercession for Australia.

It is by faith in Jesus given to us by God that saved us (Eph 2:8) and adopted us as His very own children “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12).   “You have all become true children of God by the faith of Jesus the Anointed One! It was faith that immersed you into Jesus, the Anointed One, and now you are covered and clothed with his anointing. And we no longer see each other in our former state—Jew or non-Jew, rich or poor, male or female—because we’re all one through our union with Jesus Christ with no distinction between us.” (Gal 3:26-28 TPT)

Faith comes from the heart (Rom 10:9-10). Faith is now and it is the substance of things hoped for (Heb 11:1), when we believe – all things are possible. Mercy flows when we are in fiery trials or suffering and cry out to our Father like the father of the afflicted boy “Immediately the father of the boy cried out [with a desperate, piercing cry], saying, “I do believe; help [me overcome] my unbelief.”  (Mark 9:23-24 AMPC).

 To believe is the work God requires of us, “Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.” John 6:28-29 (NKJV). Faith pleases Him (Heb 11:6). Jesus knew we need faith to see His kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven, we can fast and pray to remove our unbelief and doubt to gain victory over our enemies. We lift our faith as a shield and resist the devil (Eph 6:16). We can have greater faith (Matt 8:5-11) or even little faith (Matthew 17:20-21). Believing results in mountains moving and prayers answered (Mark 11:23-24).

Key Prayer Points may include:

  • Thank Jesus that he ever lives to intercede for us – even that our faith will not fail
  • Let the gospel go out and bring many to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ in Australia
  • May the gift of faith be stirred to greater faith as we understand authority
  • All doubt and unbelief be eradicated from the church
  • That we walk in faith to fulfil all that he has destined for each one of His children
  • All to read God’s word and pray it, believing His word is fruitful and does not return void

As we intercede for the sphere of RELIGION/CHURCH in our society this week let’s make praise a priority!

May we lean in to hear His heart and the whisper of His voice and be obedient to say what Jesus is saying and pray what Jesus is praying.

His church is built on the rock of the supernatural revelation of Jesus as the Anointed One the Son of God (Matthew 16:18).

We ask the Lord that we his church know His ways & lean not on our own understanding (Proverbs 3:3-6).

God has blueprints in His word on how he builds His church (Eph 4:7-16).

We are being commissioned to sow with our words – to be intentional to bless.

The Lord showed me through a dream how crucial it is for us to watch and pray but most of all speak words of life and destiny over the next generation right now and over the next two years for what he plans to birth and establish in 2020.

Many other religions are being given place in our nation but we decree Jesus is King and Lord over Australia.

Key Prayer Points for the Church may include:

  • Honour the Lord above all else, praise and worship and thank Him constantly
  • Enter into deeper intimate friendship and relationship with the Lord
  • Listen to and obey Jesus’s voice and hear what the Spirit is saying to the church
  • Hearts will receive the Fathers perfect love and delight in our adoption as sons & daughters
  • Your Kingdom Come Lord Jesus on earth as it is in heaven (Pray the Lord’s prayer)
  • Thank God for the Ecclesia – his church in every sphere of influence – (Revelation 11:15)
  • Pray from our position in Christ at the right hand of the Father far above our enemies
  • Arise and Shine, be salt and light, bring in the harvest out of love and demonstrated power
  • That His Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers fulfil their call and build together to equip the saints for the work of the ministry and to edify the saints
  • Every person in the church to grow up in all things into Christ, and supply His body with the particular gifts they have been given.
  • May we be one as the Father and Jesus are one, the oil of unity flowing (John 17 & Psalm 133)
  • Fulfil the great commission and live out Isaiah 61 as His anointed ones
  • Submit to, encourage and love one another, prefer and honour one another
  • May we celebrate each other’s success and support each other
  • Repent of anything that creates factions, division, criticism or judgement
  • That we present a credible, wise, unified and well organised community to the world
  • Be a people growing in the revelation of the Word of God and be doers of His Word
  • Work shoulder to shoulder, rebuild the walls together, trust in and pray for one another
  • Ask the Lord to slay Leviathan (Isaiah 27:1), & lies and deception and remove it from the church

 

May the Lord bless you and strengthen you as you pray for Australia!

 

Grace, Peace & Mercy,
