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!

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 www.room24az.com 520-490-7091
