Prayer Walking: Victory on Higher Ground

Katina Tsigopoulos 04/01/24
I woke from this dream at 3:30 am before an early flight from the Gold Coast to Sydney for Uncle Georgie Kookaburra’s funeral.

The Dream:

I was prayer walking in a group in Melbourne’s inner city, going to different sites (churches) and signing a ledger to say we’ve been here. (I remember going to the Peel St Greek Church -my old church.)

We knew it had been raining, and the landscape was changing… It was like we were there as witnesses or surveyors of the land… Nofoao Thomas and others there too. Our group set up camp in a park to “sit and watch” then another guy came and told us to move to their  camp site because it had a better view and there were others there too, felt like people from all around Australia where there to watch.

As we approached I could see a river forming before me… He said, “This is a new river that’s formed because of the rains… It’s a river that hasn’t been seen for centuries though has always been there (hidden) and now because of the rain it’s filling again”…. As we watched people needed to move their seats back as the water was rising… it was like the tide was coming in… I was filled with JOY and I began to worship in dance flying and twirling around the camp site I was leaping with joy and spinning around full of Joy…

The likes of Mark and Issy Finney from Jubilee in Sydney were there. Liam Swaine from The Sanctuary in Melbourne. Kathrine Ruonola from Glory City Church, Brisbane and others known and unknown to me where there too, from all over Australia.

It was a peaceful and joyful occasion (felt like a family camp or picnic😊)

We were ordering pancakes to eat. Some were like omelettes. Others like pancakes. The ones I ordered were lentil pancakes. I am not sure about the significance of this as I woke I was thinking better pay my part for the food…  It was $5 for the lentil pancakes and $20 for the other ones

I could see Sue Tinworth I believe she was sitting with a significant other, i sensed it to be Jesus… You were  chatting and smiling watching me dance and fly around… You was asking about the lentil pancakes, ? thinking we should order more…😜

Understandings from the Dream:

1. Praying over old churches and signing ledger: Acknowledging honouring those who have gone before us and blessing them, the signature a symbol of closure?? Old has gone New has come….

2. Changing landscape: New Rivers
Isaiah 44:3 TPT I will pour refreshing water on the thirsty and streams on the dry ground. I will pour out my Spirit on your children, my blessing upon your descendants.

Isaiah 44:3 NKJV For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, And floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, And My blessing on your offspring;

Psalm 63:1-11.  Psalm 63:1 TPT O God of my life, I’m lovesick for you in this weary wilderness. I thirst with the deepest longings to love you more, with cravings in my heart that can’t be described. Such yearning grips my soul for you, my God!

3. Joining the bigger group to watch, dance and eat: Unity

Psalm 133:1-3 TPT How truly wonderful and delightful it is to see brothers and sisters living together in sweet unity! [2] It’s as precious as the sacred scented oil flowing from the head of the high priest Aaron, dripping down upon his beard and running all the way down to the hem of his priestly robes. [3] This harmony can be compared to the dew dripping from Mount Hermon, which flows down upon the hills of Zion. Indeed, that is where YAHWEH has decreed his blessings will be found, the promise of life forevermore!

Foot notes TPT: Psalm 133:1 This specifically speaks to the tribes of Israel that live in harmony, but it also applies to believers today. Nothing can be sweeter than the love of Christ we share with one another.

Foot notes TPT: Psalm 133:2 A special and costly anointing oil was used by Moses to anoint Aaron as the first high priest of Israel (Exodus 29:7) and to dedicate all the priests to God’s service. This oil was extremely fragrant, setting the priests apart for their work in service of God and the people. Brotherly harmony among God’s people, like anointing oil, gives off a sweet “fragrance” for all those who watch, and it demonstrates that we are set apart to serve God.

John 17:21-23 TPT I pray for them all to be joined together as one even as you and I, Father, are joined together as one. I pray for them to become one with us so that the world will recognize that you sent me. 22 For the very glory you have given to me I have given them so that they will be joined together as one and experience the same unity that we enjoy. 23 You live fully in me and now I live fully in them so that they will experience perfect unity, and the world will be convinced that you have sent me, for they will see that you love each one of them with the same passionate love that you have for me.

United We Stand!

4. Lentil pancakes

Lentils are often offered as a sacred food during religious ceremonies, signifying the importance of sustenance and communal harmony. Throughout history, lentils have been revered for their nutritional value and symbolic significance, making them a central element in various rituals and cultural practices

According to Jewish tradition, the small round lentil symbolizes the circle of life and is therefore eaten as part of the consolation meal of mourners or during the days before Tisha B’Av.

Tisha B’Av, the ninth day of the Jewish month of Av, is recognized as the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. It is a day of mourning for tragedies across Jewish history, most particularly the destruction and loss of the first and second Temple and Jerusalem nearly 2,000 years ago

Tisha B’Av, which literally means the ninth day of the Hebrew month of Av, is a 24-25-hour period of fasting in remembrance of the destruction of the First and Second temples in Jerusalem. Tisha B’Av is an annual fast day in Judaism, on which a number of disasters in Jewish history occurred, primarily the destruction of both Solomon’s Temple by the Neo-Babylonian Empire and the Second Temple by the Roman Empire in Jerusalem.

Tish’a B’Av for Hebrew Year 5784 begins at sundown on Monday, 12 August 2024 and ends at nightfall on Tuesday, 13 August 2024 . Tisha B’Av (Hebrew: תשעה באב or ט׳ באב, “the Ninth of Av,”) is an annual fast day in Judaism, named for the ninth day (Tisha) of the month of Av in the Hebrew calendar.

Like manna and the word of God, nutritious sustainable nourishing.

5. What does the $5 represent?
5 fold ministry? Ephesians 4:11 “God gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry and for the edifying of the body of Christ

5= grace. In the Bible, the number 5 represents God’s grace.  This makes the number 5 one of the Bible’s most symbolic and meaningful numbers. In Hebrew, the number 5 relates to the fifth letter of the alphabet: Hei, He, or Heh. This letter means “to look” or “to behold.”

6. What does the biblical word 20 mean?

The number 20 represents redemption. For instance, God promised Abraham that He would not destroy Sodom and Gomorrah if He found only 20 righteous people in both cities (Genesis 18:31). Also, we see that Jacob spent 20 years at Laban before he could escape (Genesis 31:38).

7. The Victory of Shammah

2 Samuel 23:11-12 “Next in rank was Shammah son of Agee from Harar. One time the Philistines gathered at Lehi and attacked the Israelites in a field full of lentils. The Israelite army fled, but Shammah held his ground in the middle of the lentil field and beat back the Philistines. So the Lord brought about a great victory.”

Stand your ground!

“Shammah” means “God is there” in Hebrew and “higher ground in Arabic!
