Room 24 at Iglesia La Gracia De Dios 11172017


Room 24 at Iglesia La Gracia De Dios

We have had so much pure fun at this church.  Our last prayer was no exception.  It was wonderful to be in their new location in Nogales, right on the border, up on a hill.  The church is over 100 years old and it was reported to us that there has never been 24 hours of prayer at this location.  The church building has these awesome windows, large cathedral type, towards the front and down the sides.  Really, it seemed as if we had heavens view during the whole prayer time, most startling in the early morning hours as the sun came up.  Praise God!  He is doing wonderful things and we feel privileged to be a part.

Friday night we had a time of worship and repentance and prophecy.  A team from the mission in Nogales joined us.  A team who had, by the way, been praying a few months earlier, for the church to be filled!  It was that night.  We moved on to communion and foot washing.  We just kept rotating the rows, so everyone could pray for everyone.  Unbelievable prayers and most revealing of the heart of our Savior as the children prayed.

After a break for food & fellowship the evening continued with breakthrough prayer.   Hallelujah.  We saw multiple healings in those hours of spiritual warfare.  7 people were healed of ab pain including two children.  When the Holy Spirit heals, tears follow and pain is gone.  An ankle was healed, back pain relieved and waves of healing over multiple needs.   Most visible to me was the sheer amount of people who stayed with us and by the wee hours of the morning - say 4am - the intensity of the women intercessors in particular; we prayed, we sang, we danced our way to freedom.  The River came out of course.  And it flowed and moved and jumped.

The morning brought the Resurrection power, the Holy Spirit in all His wonder, the Fire Tunnel.  In II Corinthians 12:9 - He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness”.  This is never more true than as when we transition from the night to the morning, when we enter the most unnatural hours for the body.  Our spirits, however, are mighty.  So much breakthrough.  I wish I could jump to the testimonies that we heard.  But maybe, you should come join us and hear for yourself!

Breakfast was wonderful.  New faces joined us and we carried on, a day of prayer offered to Our God.  More worship, more healing, more Holy Spirit.  MaryAnn shared about her missionary journey’s during “The Hour of Power” and our own bright rising star, Chrissy Linson, shared about her own journey and her plans for a 9 month stay in Africa.  

Marriage was a repeated theme throughout the night.  Covenant awareness and His plan for marriages and family. It blessed us mightily to be joined by a young bride and her mom on Saturday morning, who were asking for prayer for the bride, who’s own wedding would be later that day.  

In the afternoon, we gathered around the River again to receive His Joy.  We are so grateful to the Pastors at Iglesia La Gracia De Dios and their worship team, who continued in worship throughout the prayer.  They have joined us on so many Room 24 occasions and are a continual blessing to their own congregation.  We came to the end of our twenty four hours rejoicing in the testimonies – 14 people reported physical healing as a result of prayer.  Thank You Lord, for the healing, the prophetic words, the destiny that You changed through all of us.

Room 24 and the Pastors of Sonora Mexico 10/20-21/2017

http://"> VAMOS A CANTAR Let’s sing! Let’s sing Your Praises Lord! Only You! You keep doing miracles in front of our eyes and we are grateful to be part of the Kingdom You are building here on earth! Again and again, we have to check our eyes! Our natural eyes are seeing heavenly things over and over, sometimes they just come together as one enormous blessing. Our weekend with the Pastors of Sonora was so powerful. First, that so many pastors, 15 or more, would agree to join us for 24 hours of being in Your Presence. Three worship teams joined us on Friday night. It was celebratory - right at the beginning. I think we all knew we were stepping into a move of God. I’ll highlight the moments but can never fully capture the complete Love and Unity we felt. We worshipped, we shared our heart, we had communion, we repented, we called out for the city and nation. Pastor Alfredo led us in repentance and Marilu prepared us for communion. We heard an awesome testimony from Pastor Leonso & Monica about God’s call to the ranch and their journey. We saw the heart of your people Lord. Our first break was about 10:30 or 11:00 and during that time “all”, I mean “all” the lights in the church, the fellowship room we were using and the bathrooms, went completely out. A couple of people went from socket to socket trying to reverse the “surge” - :) what a “surge” it was. Instruments quiet, lights off, but the people of God determined - everyone stayed. As people got up to pray others shined their phones on them. We never lost a beat. In fact, I believe we were more aware than ever that You are God of both the day “and” the night. The scripture says You never sleep. Hallelujah! In the quiet darkness, God’s people began to sing and sing and pray and sing and Love Him, the One who brought us together. Pastor Jose Manuel ministered for a couple of hours at midnight and sang in between. We are so grateful for the all pastors who joined us. Two worshippers came prepared to play the shofar and did so in unison at the end of every prayer and than some. The morning brought light and breakfast by pastors again. God bless His servants. They were everywhere, slicing bagels and making coffee, providing burritos! Jesus - so much like You on the beach that early morning, calling to your disciples. John 21:1-14. In the morning we focused on the Holy Spirt, Pastor Juanito shared a powerful word, we were washed in Your Grace. Our Father - and than, we experience the “Power” in the Holy Spirit as Pastor Ken lead a fir tunnel. A wake up event! So much breakthrough. We closed, with gratitude and personal testimonies. Each one so important to Jesus. God provided in so many ways for this Room 24 Event. I want to thank all those who contributed to it, either by attending, or covering us in prayer or donating. We did feel that we were more than provided for and it ministered to us in a deep way. Thank you! ">

CELEBRATING SUKKOT ( The Feast of Boots) October 6, 2017

Nehemiah 8: 16 & 17 16 So the people went out and brought back branches and built themselves temporary shelters on their own roofs, in their courtyards, in the courts of the house of God and in the square by the Water Gate and the one by the Gate of Ephraim. 17 The whole company that had returned from exile built temporary shelters and lived in them. From the days of Joshua son of Nun until that day, the Israelites had not celebrated it like this. And their joy was very great. Oh, how our joy was great! We set up tents and barbecue’d meat(Kabobo and Steak) and Chicken and had lots of salads and sides and cakes and other desert. The people came, from Room 24 and from Desert Stream Fellowship, from Ironwood Hills and from Beth Sar Shalom, from the Tucson Arabic Church and from Igelesia La Gracia De Dios. They came from Mexico and from Nogales and from Rio Rico and Green Valley, from Sierra Vista and from all over Tucson. Their heritages were American and Jewish believers, Hispanic believers, and from Egypt and Iran, from Iraq and Palestine. We sang in English and Hebrew and Arabic and Spanish. We had lots of children, God’s Promise of another generation to call on His Name. We were so filled with joy! Psalm 126:3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Thank you Lord for a night full of blessing. And thank you for Your Presence!

Room 24 at Adina's Home September 15-16, 2017

Some take away thoughts from our last 24 hour prayer at Adina’s: -I’m having a good day! -No battle, just Praise! -Forgive everyone -and Do Not Judge! Mercy is the Goal! -We are extremely, overwhelmingly, Loved by the Father! These Living Room experiences are touching us, filling us, in ways we could have never anticipated. Twenty-four hours of prayer seemed an almost impossible task when we started this journey. Now, it is like the feeling you have when you tuck yourself away in a log cabin with people you love and all kinds of provision to wait out the snow storm. Gentle, loving, warm, words do not capture how Good our God is. We started Friday with worship and communion and testimony. The warfare hours 12 midnight to 3am were accomplished with high praise! Glory! And in the early morning, just before dawn, we witnessed what a good day is to Heidi Baker! :) 6am brought Breakfast Abundance and talk of His Glory! One by one we headed to the coffee pot which Adina managed to keep flowing continually. We read and prayed through I & II Timothy. The powerful word of God as sustenance. We have been pressing in to understand the Father’s Love. Because, how else do you have Revival. The thing is, He loves us enough to fix us first. This was Saturday, an anointed time for each of us! We spent some time considering the words of Carol & John Arnot about the Father’s Love. I can see it now, those Waves of Glory. I feel it - we all do. We witnessed an opening into this New Revelation. There is work to be done and Holy Spirit is showing us how. Most of us were there for 24 hours. Some had to come and go and some came again. The Body of Christ is awesome in these times. People come in and it is as if we’ve known them forever. So many good times of Prayer. To You be the Glory, Lord, for all you have done! Next “Room 24” is in Mexico! 24 hours with Pastors and spouses! Ven Senor Jesus!

Restoration Community Ministries - August 25/26, 2017

Hello every body, Thinking a lot about the powerful weekend we had at Restoration Community Ministries - our most recent “Room 24” event. “They keep getting better”. “They are always different”. “God does something new each time”. All the phrases we can use. We are beginning to be out of words. It is hard sometimes to describe what we experience. And the real truth is that everyone there experiences something for them personally. If you put that all together, it’s like John said in chapter 21, verse 25: John 21:25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written. I’m beginning to feel that. We hear so many testimonies, but really we never capture “all” that went on as Our Savior moves up close to His children and whispers something in their spirit that changes everything. In retrospect, we have been partnering with RCM in 24 hour prayer for 5 years now. WOW. We have carved out a realm. It is so wonderful to come back together with each other. A foundation has been laid - theirs and ours and what we have fashioned together by His Grace. We come together as family. There is a unity in our purpose, an expectation and always many surprises. We have an agenda of course. It’s amazing what happens to that agenda, it stretches and moves and breaths and closes in and expands again. Not unlike the waves at the ocean! We asked our group to name some of the parts that were outstanding - there were so many. The unity and the love among us was repeated many times. The testimonies was another: Revelation 19:10 At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus”. We truly came together in testimony and then prayer and prophecy over each one. One thing mentioned again and again was the hunger in the people for more of Jesus. He never disappoints! God’s gifts were on display the whole time; in music and art and conversation even. Healing comes. In His Presence, things change, suddenly. We are all better for having experienced one day in His courts. Psalm 84:10 Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. Join us next time. We will be in Tucson at Adina’s home on September 15 & 16. 6pm. Call or email Elias for details. Blessings, Elias & Ann Abyad 520-490-7091

Room 24 at MaryAnn's Home 07/21-22/2017

What can we say - God is Good and His Love Endures Forever. Feeling so blessed. We know God is Good but that part about His love endures forever -- If the Love we felt this weekend is forever, I feel like we will burst. Such overwhelming Love and Peace. We cannot get it out of our minds. Thanks to MaryAnn for opening her home. The Presence of the Lord there was so sweet. We kept remembering the years of service she and her husband (now deceased) accomplished for the Lord and our prayer was that something of that mantle would fall on all of us. "God give us the Nations as you did for MaryAnn & John. When you come, let us be found doing Your Work!!" Within the first hour, our first prayer for someone, brought tremendous healing. She had been dealing with pressure on and around her head for 4-5 years following a car accident. Unable to bend quickly because of the discomfort & dizziness. Anointing oil and prayer and her healing was instant. The presence of the Lord was very strong. We clearly did nothing, just called on His Name. Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals, waiting for our gathering. Communion and a message by Marilu on “the table”. “I give you My Love. I give you My Life.” We pressed in to evening. We had in mind to worship and share testimony, the prophecy that would be someone else’s healing. We never gave the directive but obviously the Holy Spirit was in charge. Everyone started sharing testimonies without even a mention. And the prayer that followed was incredible. We were so blessed by our pastors from Nogales, AZ, who joined us and brought a time of live worship for us. We so love their ministry. A dear friend came and brought her boys, triplets, age 4. They were moving about and discovering things as young boys do, but when the Shofar was blown, it got their attention. And then, when the worship started they immediately began to dance. Awesome God. Towards midnight, each boy found a place with someone, to fall asleep. The Glory of God just rested on them and on us. The midnight to 3am watch was filled with worship and prayer. Honestly, we don’t even feel the hours anymore, we get lost in Our Lord. We had so many very personal encounters of His Love. Jesus has a way of meeting us wherever we are in our minds, just showing up and bringing His Love so free. Lord, how will we ever thank you for these nights we spend with You. Morning was a joy. Resurrection and Dunamis power. We moved into some teaching from Katie Souza and had breakthrough in those hours. We are loving the living room setting. We listened and soaked and received. Hallelujah. Saturday afternoon we shared a teaching by Leif Hetland that inspired us again, how to love the nations and receive our inheritance. Ask of Me and I will give the Nations as an inheritance to you. We worshipped throughout each session. Blessed prayer and words for each of us. Lord how we thank you for speaking freshly into our lives. We saw Love poured out, purpose, healing, again & again. In the afternoon, we never forget to pray into our Nation, our State and City. Our pastors and churches. Our families and children. We go home filled up in our spirits, ready to serve. You are welcome to join us next time. Room 24 will be partnering with Restoration Community Ministries at the American Indian Bible College in Phoenix. Please call or email Elias for details. If your reading this, just a reminder, Jesus Loves You! Elias & Ann Abyad

Room 24 at Adina's Home

Our time together at Adina’s home was precious. We had planned to focus on personal ministry and we did that, but we were touched by the Presence of Our Savior the whole time. It is special to be in each other homes. We started with worship, one song, some prayer, one song, some prayer. And, added testimony of all who were there because we had some new faces. We were overwhelmed with the stories of Jesus moving in on someone’s life in so many unique and amazing ways. We took our time with the testimonies and it was wonderful. It led right into Communion which is a great way to give thanks for our Salvation. Marilu led communion and the discussion of “The Holy Meal”. Her anointing for Communion is wonderful. The war is over, turn around, lay your weapons on the ground. The smoke is fading before the light, the dead are coming back to life. He has made a way for us...born for glory out of dust, children the Arms of Peace. He has made a way for us. Mercy waits were sinners fall. He is our Victory. It is finished, it is done, the Blood of Jesus overcomes! It is finished, He has won! HE HAS WON! This is my battle cry, I’m found in Jesus Christ. Jesus, we call on Your Name. Jesus! Lay down your striving, we surrender to Jesus This was the overwhelming emotion of the night hours. We started with foot washing Friday evening late about 11pm. Our heart was to pray for everyone there, to pray for freedom from anything holding them back and to release the direction the Lord had for them. We started at 11pm and finished at 6am. The Holy Spirit is so amazing and unpredictable. We were all amazed it was morning! Later Saturday morning we played some worship music from Steve Swanson and just continued through the whole CD. We had a visitation, all of us and each of us. We had a woman join us during the time frame and she came in to find us all in various states of worship and surrender. We asked her later, what she felt, we wanted to be awake and alert for her but we were all overcome. Her response - no problem, this is how we pray in Mexico! :) Praise God for that! The afternoon was special as we took on the noon day watch and prayed for the places we find ourself at noon, at the bussiest time of day, whether ministry, job, family... We are going to continue in each others homes for our next Room 24 which will be at Mary Ann’s house in Green Valley on July 21/22. All are welcome. If you plan on joining us, please contact Elias by phone or email for details. Our August 24 hour prayer will be in Phoenix at Restoration Community Ministries (RCM) 8/25-26/2017. Mark your Calendars.

Room 24 at Adina's Home

Hi Everyone,

Our next 24 hour prayer will be in two weeks on Friday June 30 & Saturday July 1.  It will be at Adina's house.  She has graciously opened her home for prayer.   

We are excited to get back to prayer this month.  Our last event was the National Day of Prayer and it seems like so long ago, already. (See our web-site  We are sensing a new thing coming.   In our hearts we want to bring Room 24 out of the church buildings and into the community.  This is a great way to do it.  Feel free to invite others to join us.  Our focus will be personal ministry for all who attend.  

Elias & I will bring the coffee pot and items for some quick meals.  This seems easier overall to arrange.  If you have on your heart to help us out with the cost please bring an offering for "Room 24".  We will also bring our offering jar!  :)

Please let us know if you are planning to join us in prayers and email us back for more info.

National Day of Prayer at Son Life Chapel 050317-050417

What a glorious celebration of prayer for our country.  We made it!  24 hours of prayer followed by a special service at Son Life Chapel for a citywide celebration of the National Day of Prayer.  We were at the church till 9:30pm and the miracle was that we were all as awake as when we first started - perhaps a little giddier!  Thank you Lord and thank everyone for your participation.   I know we say this often, but seriously, we could not have done it without you.  New friends, new alliances and an overwhelming sense of expectation for what God has for us.  Jesus was wearing red, white and blue.  We were thrilled to hear of President Trumps signature, the very same day of the ‘Religious Liberty” Executive Order.  Coincidence?  We don’t think so.  This has been an unprecedented season of “calling out” to the One we love and the Only One who can bring desperately needed Revival to our nation.  

On Wednesday night we started with a shofar and a time of worship.  We shared a bit about Room 24 and about the history of the National Day of Prayer.  We read proclamations of our past presidents calling for prayer on this day.  We moved into a time of repentance.  Our worship team from Iglesia de Gracia de Dios joined us for worship - awesome! We had communion and spent some time in the Covenant.  We heard incredible testimonies of “standing” for marriages and a testimony of the marriage covenant restored.  We spoke about the Blood of the Lamb and the covering of our military.  As we moved into the evening we had prayer for our students and had some incredible youth pastors with us through the night.  

A personal favorite was a Holy Spirit encounter in the wee hours and a presentation of the “fishes and the loaves” to the pastors.  The fishes to the ones who were to fish for men and the loaves to the ones who were to feed the sheep. Powerful.  We had one gentlemen join us from Barundi.  As he prayed the burden he had for his nation was apparent and led to a time of extended prayer.  Several pastors continued to pass to him the loaves and the fish for that country.  We always expect God but are amazed and how He is personal in his encounters.  He surely is “Fire in the night”!

The early morning hours brought breakthrough prayers and additional fresh intercessors.  Some of us stayed throughout, some of us never left, but always continuing to intercede.  The morning brought Resurrection power, healing, talk of revival.  (I always love that revival part).  In between we had breakfast, fellowship, lots of joy and some intense starring/naps.  

Our daytime agenda included prayer in line with the NDP agenda.  We had a time of prayer for children and heard from some of the ministries operating in our community.  We were refreshed.

As we prepared for the evening event I think we all wondered how we would do physically.  It’s hard to express just how powerful it is when we come to the end of ourselves and see our spirit triumph with His Spirit.  It happens every time and every time we are amazed.  You know that you know that it can’t possibly be your doing, but God!

II Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

:)  Yes Lord!

Our conclusion event was spectacular.  The Shofar, the worship, the vision, the pastors hearts, one after another, the languages - prayers in Hebrew, Arabic, Spanish, African languages, Chinese and Korean - all for the USA.  To God be the Glory!

Room 24 at Iglesia De Dios Vida Eterna 4/7-8/2017


We were blessed to be partnering with Iglesia De Dios Vida Eterna in Tucson for our most recent 24 hour prayer.  The Lord has taken us in every direction, but it is always good to be home in our city.  Our prayer was Spanish/English throughout.  The church has been alive in this community for almost 12 years.  Our time together was blessed.  We knew as we entered the church that prayer had been established here long before we came.  The Abiding Presence of the Lord was an encouragement to all of us.  

We started Friday night with worship and repentance, preparing for what God had planned.  We were joined by the worship team from Iglesia La Gracia De Dios in Nogales, AZ.  It was an awesome time of worship and communion.  My eyes were riveted to a couple preparing communion.  It seemed the Anointing was on them in the process.  When I talked to them later they told me that “Communion” is their ministry.  They typically prepare it for the church and take it every day themselves.  It’s wonderful how you can see the Grace of God on people.  The Friday night hours moved quickly in a hum of worship and prayer.  I believe we woke up the neighborhood that night!  God’s own choice of weekend entertainment.  

How do we thank you Lord for the many areas of breakthrough and healing we experienced during the night.  We moved into a time of student led worship as we approached midnight and the early morning hours of spiritual warfare.  Freedom comes during those hours as the spiritual intensity builds.  We have seen through the watches the tempo of our prayer change as we climb that mountain of Praise and watch as His Spirit leads.  By early morning, praying “Fire” scriptures we had encounters personal for each of us.  Jesus heals simply in His Presence.  Later we shared and found that we had each had a an experience with the Lord in that time, unique yet similar.  One of our ladies saw Jesus walking toward us and as He stepped the ground under Him became a path of gemstones.  One of the ladies from the church felt the wind coming by her.  Another felt the Lord wrapping His cape around her and as He did she was healed.  Hallelujah!  

The church blessed us in the meals they served.  Our early breakfast together was a joy as the daylight came up and we experienced His resurrection power freshly.  God continually brings healing during those hours.  We saw a special time of the Fathers love and blessing poured out on His people.  We heard incredible testimonies of His love and deliverance in our lives.  There were so many testimonies.  Several of their early lives and the hardships they felt.  Several people grew up literally on their own, as orphans and found a path to Jesus.  The experience of the Father’s love and blessing impacted so many. 

Our afternoon focuses on the church family, the pastors and ministry leaders, the youth and children.  As we were ministering in the afternoon, a simple tune came to mind, a reminder of the baby Jesus and the shepherds.  We went with the tune and I recalled a time where the Lord showed me the shepherds on the hill and angels coming like a flash, like they did that night.  We had been praying for a friends family member and he experienced incredible deliverance.  I shared it because it was similarly not anywhere near Christmas at the time.  When babies come it usually means the birth of new ministries as well.  P Ken shared how when Jesus was born in Bethlehem, it was quiet and unassuming.  While a King had been born, not many recognized it in the natural.  We felt a similar experience at the church that morning.  That something very powerful had been birthed and in the natural, in the neighborhood it was quietly planted without much attention.  God is doing mighty things in our midst.  

While we grow weary in our body, His power becomes more and more evident as the hours pass.  We made new friends and extended our family.  Lord we pray sustained blessing at Iglesia De Dios Vida Eterna until we join with them again.

Prophetic word received at Iglesia De Dios Vida Eterna

Prophetic Word received at last 24 hour prayer:


  Child, I would give you the sight of My eyes.  My sight, sees beyond the usual human reasoning.  Give Me your human sight and reasoning power and I will exchange it with My outlook and pure understanding of the situations that you are faced with.  You judge Me so quickly when you don’t “see” the answer you desired.  I have the best way - the best plan.  You misjudge Me, yet I am not offended.  I see your desire to know Me. Wait on Me, and I will enlarge your field of understanding and your place of focus will never waver from Me.  I am your clear vision.  Look to Me my child and see through My eyes.

Room 24 at Cantico Nuevo 02/17-18/2017


This year is shaping up to be a powerful one.  On February 17/18,  we had 24 hour prayer at Cantico Nuevo in Nogales, Sonora.  We have been scheduled for prayer at Cantico Nuevo at least twice a year for about 4 years now.  We truly have become family with this church, the pastors, leaders, worshippers, families, servants.  God it is so good to return us to our home in Nogales, Sonora.  God is faithful each time we come together.  His Presence is rich and He always has something new for us.  Some old, some new, always great.

Our prayer Friday night was marked by an extended time of repentance.  We love to start this way as we usher in the Presence of God.  But beginning Friday evening, God opened our hearts to His wonders; His mercy & grace.  So many times we have talked about repentance being key to revival.  We believe we are witnessing the promised days of revival coming our way.  We love to remember God’s promise that He would start in the south and bring revival to Arizona. We feel that power as we stand in His Name in Nogales, Sonora.  His people are crying out for Him.  We give Glory to God to be witnessing the things we see.

We made a time on Friday night to pray for a young couple that were heading south (a 10 hour trip) to visit an ailing father.  They were praying to be in time to see him, should these be his last days.  By testimony Sunday morning, we found out that not only was their father awake, but sat up to visit with his family.  Yes, God is good.  The same night another young couple asked for prayer for their young daughter.  They were headed to ER and brought her to the church on the way to ER.  We prayed together for them and laid hands on the girl.  At some point later that night, the family was back, with the child.  The doctors did not find anything and the little one became our favorite drum soloist on and off for the remaining hours of prayer.

The night watches are wonderful.  So many stay with us, praying and worshipping into the wee hours.  Waves of His Glory meet us through the night.  We get loud and we get quiet. And as we have said many times, He always meets each of us individually.  Faithful God.

We enjoyed so many meals together; in the natural and in the Spirit. On Saturday, we pressed in for more with Holy Spirit Fire.  The Fire Tunnel was overwhelming.  Healing Rooms - what can we say.  Our God is so personal.  As the afternoon came we covered the nation and city, pastors and churches, families and children.  So much more.

Thank you Lord for the relationships you have given us.  We so appreciate these pastors and congregations.  We so appreciate our team who go out of their way to join us on our journeys.  Our words are not sufficient to what You are doing in our midst.

Room 24 at Restoration Community Ministries (RCM) 01/27-28/2017


Last weekend we had our scheduled prayer with Restoration Community Ministries (RCM) in Phoenix.  The second “Room 24” event of the year.  Two this year in January - speaks of the double portion.  

II Kings 2:9

When they had crossed over, Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask what I shall do for you 
before I am taken from you.”  And Elisha said, “Please, let a double portion of  your spirit be upon me.”

We have been doubly blessed this month, with the prayer and with the expectancy of what is coming.  So many from RCM were with us for the 24 hours, and so many from the Phoenix area.  It is significant that the church now meets on the grounds of the American Indian Bible College.  We received a word on Friday night of the plan the Holy Spirit has for the American Indian Nations as we press into Revival.  What an awesome God.  He has left the American Indian Nations intact for such a time as this.  And the witness of Jesus moving in these nations was powerful and inspirational.  We watch and wait for the fullness of His promise.  If you were not able to join us, watch the video entitled xxx.  It will change you.

Friday night the Lord reminded us of where we are in time.  We take our time with repentance because we know the sweetness of His Presence right away.  Our supper and the communion experience was so special.  The church had set the table for communion right there in the front of the sanctuary.  This is the second time we have shared communion in this way and it is that message that Our Lord has set up a table for us, in the center of our situation, where we can go and meet with Him, whenever.  But when we do this as a body, the blessing of unity falls.  A great way to empower the evening.  

Towards midnight we were in The River!  As we were worshipping, we were joined by a group of younger people who had been out ministering in the city.  They join for prayer and then head out to different parts of the city to offer prayer, salvation and healing as the Lord directs.  We were so grateful to have them join us.  Their spiritual energy was tangible in the sanctuary.  We worshipped and shared testimonies throughout the night.  

Morning...God bless our people as they took turns ministering the word, each in their individual fashion; we heard the hearts of Pastor Ken, Norm, Maryann, Adina.  Later we heard the testimonies about healing room from so many.  We watched deliverance through Kelly.  So many blessings.  

RCM’s worship team is exceptional, unlike any other.  We had the ladies Friday night and Saturday afternoon, and the sound of their voices and instruments filled the room and our hearts.  

Closing prayers are sweet.  Yes, we are tired, in the natural, but our spirits know we have been somewhere uniquely designed for us & Him.  But when we are tired, He is strong in us and thats when God moves in healing and retoration in our bodies and personal lives. Praise God.  We love these pastors and their church and look forward to our next time together.  God, You are Good!

Room 24 at La Gracia De Dios


We were at La Gracia De Dios Iglesia Christiana last weekend, Friday January 13 till Saturday 14th for Room 24.  What a faithful church.  As we continued into the night and early hours we were so blessed that the church members stayed with us.  Most of the participants were with us the entire time and they represented a large part of the church.  Faithful people, faithful God.  There were so many wonderful expressions of the Spirit of the Lord with us.  Some that come to mind now:
  The Covenant - We spent extended time on the Covenant during communion and became freshly aware that God never leaves us.  He is with us always, establishing that covenant in our lives and reminding us again and again of His Promises in our lives.  The covenant stands because He loves us, not because of anything we do.  In fact, often He brings in His covenant promises even when we are not doing our part.  But when we join with Him, what a wonder He is.  His promises are real, every day.
  The Authority - The authority He gives us to speak out His Name, call in His praises, carry out His warfare, bless and behold Him.  The young people took over Friday night as we approached the time of warfare and what a blessing they were.  We also choose to read through Revelation in both English and Spanish.  God moves when His word is spoken.
  The River - In the early morning hours, we found ourselves in His Presence, traveling in that River and receiving from Him.  We wound up in a prayer tunnel that was very encouraging as we heard the sound of prayers prayed for us by young and old alike.
  The Holy Spirit - The morning activation and the understanding of the gifts He has given us.
  The Healing - We experienced the Jesus who Heals.  We watched as He touched His people in so many different ways.
  The Corporate Prayers - For the nation, the church, the leaders, the family’s & children.  Lord, thank you.  We prayed for every one of these, empowered by the things we had seen and expectant.
  The Glory of His Presence that just became stronger and stronger among us.
  The worship, the art and the words given.   We will remember the worship team and their fresh gift to us every couple of hours.  And the art, the painting, the cups overflowing.  The words - a mountain with a river rushing down, wide and expansive.
  The Pastors - As we concluded with a time of prayer with the pastors.  It was a blessing to witness the outpouring of love from the congregation to the pastors.  What a blessed time.
  We have declared “revival” in this place.  We engaged, we witnessed, we experienced. Thank you church and team and all who joined us.
