   DATE CHANGE


Prayer scheduled for December 11/12, 2015 has been postponed till New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  Please mark your calendars for the change.  Some schedules collided and we are believing this is God -

28 And we know that [a]God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
We will begin Thursday, Dec 31st at 6pm and go through Friday, Jan 1, 2016!  The location is the same - it will be at our home.

Room 24 December 2015

Room 24 December 2015

We are gearing up for our next and final "Room 24" event in 2015.  It will be at our home, on December 11th/12th, beginning at 6pm Friday - 6pm Saturday at 6600 N Van Ark Rd, Tucson AZ 85743.  This will be our 12th prayer event for 2015 and we are so pleased looking back, that we have been able to schedule prayer once a month for all of 2015.  
We can't help but consider where God has taken us this year.  You are all familiar with the prayer watches and we will stick with that theme for the next prayer.  However, we would like to take some time to consider what God has shown us, corporately and individually, during this year.  Can I ask you to write it down and bring it with you?  We have heard a lot over the year from the Lord.  Some things we are experiencing now, in its fullness.  Others are Promises we are looking for.  Please take a moment to consider one or more items you have heard during one of our prayer events together, and then give a testimony of its fulfillment or lead out in a prayer "for" the Promise yet to come.  We are expecting that God has a couple of prayers ready to go for each watch.  This review of what He has shown us will be our theme this time.

Daniel 9:23
"At the beginning of your supplications the command was issued, and I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed; so give heed to the message and gain understanding of the vision.
Daniel 10:12
Then he said to me, "Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words.

Remember to visit our website at - Room24AZ.com
Our non-profit tax ID for Room 24 has been approved.  Also, Arizona Corporate Commission has approved our request to incorporate as a non-profit organization under "Room 24 Inc".  We have added a tab to the website for prayer requests "and" testimonies.  So many of you have written us with testimonies after our prayer events.  If you like, you can submit these through the web page now.  Also we are able to add a "Donate" button on our website for those of you who have asked if you can help. 

God is Good and His love endures forever - Psalm 100.5.

Hope your holidays have been wonderful so far, and continue to be blessed and fulfilling. We are believing God for answered prayers in every area.  He has already given His son.  And continues to fill us with His Peace, Love and Joy!  :)

Please join us!


In January, Room 24 will partner with Restoration Community Ministries at 10020 N  15th Ave, Phoenix AZ 85021, on January 29 & 30th. Save the date!

November 2015

We had a wonderful time of prayer last weekend.  God is so good!  Friday night and Saturday, worship was so refreshing and our prayer times were intimate.  Our communion was so sweet.  His Presence has softened our hearts in a new measure. 

We are so blessed by those who have made "Room 24" a regular commitment.  Our numbers are growing along with our joy and koinonia!  The first time we heard that word was when our children were attending a Lutheran elementary school and that had a weekend camping trip that they called "Koinonia" every year.  The meaning of this word is rich and is a regular experience for us at "Room 24" these days.

Koinoinia definition:
Koinonia {coy NO nyah) is a transliterated form of the Greek word, κοινωνία, which means communion, joint participation; the share which one has in anything, participation, a gift jointly contributed, a collection, a contribution, etc. It identifies the idealized state of fellowship and unity that should exist within the Christian church, the Body of Christ.

Hallelujah for that definition.  We believe it is what we are all feeling during these prayer times.  We are so grateful for each and every participant.  We are blessed to bring in new people every time.  Each one has a story, a journey that they are on, but somehow, the topic we are covering, the prayer direction we are following, is a perfect match for their situation.    God gives to us and uses us in a melodic rhythm.  He puts people together and meets needs and we watch and enjoy.  We are overwhelmed with His Love.

It is so important in our day to bring His Peace!  Our world is hurting and we know the answer!  We would encourage you to take up your cross and follow Him.  (Matt 16:24).  It's not a hard walk.  Jesus carried His cross to the crucifixion.  We simply have to identify with the cross.  He did it all for us.  But letting that cross be visible is important.  We are safe houses, walking about in a portable temple and carrying the living God.  We are seeing that the more open we are to His expression through us, the easier it is to meet the need.  Acts 3:6 says it, "I do not have, but what I have, I give".  It's all Jesus, Yeshua!  

Our December "Room 24" will be in our home on Dec 11 & 12.  You are so welcome to join us!  
Love in Christ,

Elias & Ann

Preparing for this weekend

We are looking forward to our 24 hour prayer for November that is quickly approaching.  We will be joining with Desert Streams Fellowship, Open Heaven Fellowship and Beit Hallel Messianic Community at 2445 N Coyote Dr Ste 101, Tucson AZ 85743. The prayer begins Friday night at 6pm on 11/20/2015 and goes through Saturday at 6pm.  We will be traveling through the prayer watches, but expecting God for the new things He has planned.

Revelation 22:1-2
  "And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street.  And on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. "

This is the week  before Thanksgiving and as such we are planning to focus on thanksgiving prayers.  We will begin with repentance, communion and foot washing prayers.  The night will include spiritual warfare, recovery and testimony.  The morning will be a celebration resurrection, to include prayer for healing and thanksgiving.  Special during this Room 24 prayer event will be an hour dedicated to children’s prayer, right after lunch.  In the afternoon we will pray for ministries, ministries leaders and pastors.  Our focus during this time will also be on prayer for the nations and appreciation of the multifaceted, multi-lingual intercessory team God has given us.  

We are truly blessed by the opportunity God has given us for continued, dedicated times of prayer on a monthly basis.  As we move into the holiday season and the end of the year quickly approaches, we can’t help but look over the year and all the blessing that God has provided.  More than ever, we are grateful to be in His service.  Our world is more challenged then ever, and our position as servants of the Lord is daily shifting to an outward expression of His love.  We don’t have to look far to see how significant the Love of the Father is to our world.  While we appreciate our churches, our heart is to do more to bring the wonderful expression of God’s love to our generation both inside and out of the traditional church.  

God bless you all bountifully and please plan on joining us Friday at 6pm

The next two months we will be in Mexico; at Cantico Nuevo on Sept 18 & 19, 2015 and at the Ranch on Oct 16 & 17, 2015  We are expecting great things.  Cantico Nuevo has devoted specific time to praying for the persecuted church.  Supernaturally, God has joined them with a church they have been praying for in southern Mexico.   They will be traveling there later in September.  In these days, we are all encountering God's Presence in a new way.  We are living in incredible days.  We are learning, that as we step out, He meets us - every time.  Each month we are renewed, refreshed and inspired as we come together for 24 hour prayer.  Many of you are asking about our agenda.  These next two months will be in Mexico, November will be in Tucson at Desert Streams Fellowship and December will be in our home for the holidays at Picture Rocks.  If your heart has been moved to join us in Mexico please come with us in Sept and/or Oct.  We would love to have you join us!

And the River flows…

Time is going by so quickly.

Just last month we were in Phoenix at Restoration Community Fellowship, dancing in the river...(literally)...

Rev 22:1
Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

*

Last weekend we had a fabulous time at Desert Streams Fellowship in Tucson.  We were joined by two other churches that meet at that location and individuals representing about 9-10 churches city wide.  God is indeed bringing unity, as we have prayed for so often.

John 17:22
I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—

*

And next month, Sept 18-19, we will go back to Cantico Neuvo in Nogales Sonora.  They just celebrated their 2nd year anniversary last Sunday.  Totally looking forward to all God has for us.  He is a faithful God, true to His Promises.

Deuteronomy 7:9
Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.

Calling in the Glory

We made a commitment this year to host a “Room 24” event somewhere, once a month.  It’s June, we have had more than several powerful events.  June came so quick.  We have plans for July and in the fall months.  We saw June coming and some vacations and activities, and decided not to push but to regroup some and hold the event in our home.  The last time me had “Room 24” in our home was in December and that was a powerful time of looking out to the New Year and getting hold of the plans God had for us.

Well as our June event was coming a dear friend handed me a book out of the blue.  Grabbed it off the shelf as we were leaving and handed it to me, saying read this!  The book, GLORY - Experiencing the Atmosphere of Heaven by Ruth Ward Heflin and another “Prayer Altars” by John Mulinde and Mark Daniel, have been so impacting me &  Elias.  When it came to our “Room 24” we were desperate to pursue the Glory.  Those who join us know we have been visiting the Prayer Watches this year at our events.  Our agenda is built around these watches.  This time, knowing we would be informal and likely not have a worship team, we prepared a song list.  This is something we have been experiencing at the Saturday night fellowship we attend.  There are always words for us to follow as often, we are the worship team.  :)  So we put together a list for moving into the Glory and the plan was to replay it at every watch.  We figured that by the time we got to Saturday, we would all know the songs.  Some where very new, some from years past.  While we love the songs we know, the new songs are important also, because they speak the prophetic word Jesus has for the church.  

And so, we pursued the Glory.  What a fabulous time!  A time of fellowship and Presence and Glory all mixed together.  Oh, how we love Jesus!  The Lord has been showing us His love in startling new ways.  But, this time, we pursued His love for the church.  We even had a plan to read Song of Solomon in the middle of the night.  I have this picture of us resting around the living room in various positions.  Some half asleep, but the word kept coming, the prayers, one at a time we would get some power and continue the prayer.  At one point, around 4am, two were awake reading Song of Solomon.  :)  I love how the Holy Spirit orchestrates these times.  A friend had brought us a bouquet of flowers for the table at the beginning of the prayer.  I didn’t really totally get the revelation until Saturday afternoon, that Jesus had brought us flowers!  By Saturday afternoon, we were so overwhelmed with His love.  Randomly, but not randomly, an older song, Dance with Me, came on.  What a picture of His love.  Even at our meal times, He was there, like the Last Supper!  One of our most powerful prayer times came on Saturday morning after breakfast but before even we cleared the table.  He is truly a personal God.  He loves to be our Father and He takes that spot at the table when we gather in His Name.  


We had many prayers, many powerful times, many prophetic words, many pictures of His plans.  We had several meals and many cups of coffee and tea.  We laughed, more now just thinking back.  Thank you all for what you bring, your spiritual gifts and your unique personalities.  We love each and every one of you.   We are “full” and ready to take on the remainder of the year.
