At opening of prayer meeting, Scripture reading John 20: 27 & 29 – “Stop your doubting and believe. Jesus said to him, “Do you believe because you see me? How happy are those who believe without seeing me.”
Vision: “When we were singing the first song, I had a beautiful vision of a priest’s hands holding up the Blessed Sacrament and the Holy Spirit was hovering above it and there were rays of light coming from the Blessed Sacrament. I believe this the Lord’s way of telling us that through the Blessed Sacrament we draw great and profound strength and receiving the Sacrament at Mass is extremely, extremely important and we must receive it fully with our whole being.”
Vision: During praise I saw the Lord throwing green paper money – has to be $20.00 bills….just throwing money, throwing money. I believe that someone here or someone you know may be having difficulty with tithing and the Lord wants you to know not to be afraid of tithing. Malachi 3:8-10 – In verse 10, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse that there may be food in my house and try me in this, says the Lord of hosts. Shall I not open for you the floodgates of heaven to pour down blessings upon you without measure.”
Vision: “When we were singing, “Hold me close, let your love surround me,” the image that came to me was a big raindrop and we were all enclosed in this raindrop and there was nothing but the love of Jesus in this raindrop with us.”
Prophecy: “My people, I am here with you and where I am my glory is. Yes, you may feel my glory, you will know that I am with you so keep your eye on me and you will see my glory.”…….. “I believe that word about the Blessed Sacrament and rays that were coming out was part of what I felt also.”
Prophecy: “Yes, I send the glory upon you. My Spirit rests on you. I am calling you even closer to myself, closer, to whisper in your ear so that you may know how to follow me even closer and closer, my love, my beloved. Oh how I want to embrace you often. So come often and talk to me. Come often and listen to what I have to say to you. Come often. I’m always waiting. I have my ears open, what you need to hear. So keep your hearts open because I’ll inspire you. I will talk to you. I’ll give you the word for the moment that you need. Be patient because I am there. I love you, my dearest children.”
Prophecy: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard what I have prepared for you who follow me.”
“When the word was spoken about tithing, the Lord showed me also we should be changing some ways we have like technology, that if we are to put down our technology, our phones, the TV and the computer and all those things, games for some people and spend that time doing good or praying, that the Lord will bless us abundantly as well.”
Prophecy: “My people need hope and you, my children, are that hope. Listen to my voice. I will let you know who to reach out to, who to talk to and who to love.”
Scripture reading Jeremiah 17:7 – “I will bless the person who puts his trust in me.”
Teaching: Simple Evangelization by Richard.
Teaching on May 22 – “God Is Our Protector” by Natalie.
‘The Lord has put it upon my heart that he wants to hold us like a small, small child. He’s a loving father and he wants to hold us to himself. Anybody as a small child who ever felt unloved, unwanted or incomplete, run to the arms of your father and like a small child he will carry you in his arms and hold you close to his heart.”
Scripture reading Isaiah 42:6-9 – “I, the Lord, have called you for the victory of justice, I have grasped you by the hand; I formed you, and set you as a covenant of the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from confinement, and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness. I am the Lord, this is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to idols. See, the earlier things have come to pass, new ones I now foretell.”
Prophecy: “I have come to tell you my love. I want to embrace you. I want to come closer to you, more than you’ve ever gone before. I am drawing deep within your hearts. I am making anew your whole being. I love you. I draw you close to myself. I love you and I want to speak to you in your heart and your mind. I want to answer your prayers, follow them, but patience is also. But time has to be right. Come spend time with me. My dearest love, my dearest children. I love to speak with you and in you. I love you.”
Prophecy: “I have seen tears of joy when I rescue you, when I heal you, when I comfort you. Yes, tears of joy as you rejoice in what I do for you. So keep coming to me. Keep asking and you will receive and I will see your tears of joy, your laughter and it will be a great comfort to the heavenly angels as they witness this. So be strong, walk with me and confess to others what I have done for you. Tell others so that my name would be glorified and I will see others’ tears of joy.
Scripture reading Micah 2:12-13 – “I shall assemble the whole of Jacob, I shall gather the remnant of Israel; I shall gather them together like sheep in an enclosure and like a flock within their fold. They will bleat far away from anyone. Their leader will break out first, then all break out through the gate and escape with their king leading the way and with Yahweh at their head.”
Scripture reading Psalm 30 – Sing praises to the Lord, all you listening for him, give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment; his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may linger for the night but joy come with the morning. Hear, O Lord, and be gracious to me. O Lord, be my helper. You have turned my mourning into dancing. O Lord, my God, I will give thanks to you forever.”
Scripture reading 13:1-11 – Now before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. And during supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him, Jesus, knew that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going to God, rose from supper, laid aside his garments, and girded himself with a towel. Then he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded. He came to Simon Peter; and Peter said to him, “Lord, do you wash my feet?” Jesus answered him, “What I am doing you do not know now, but afterward you will understand.” Peter said to him, “You shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part in me.” Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!” Jesus said to him, “He who had bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but he is clean all over; and you are clean, but not every one of you.” For he knew who was to betray him; that was why he said, “You are not all clean.”
Sharings on the May 3-5 conference followed.
Teaching on May 15 will be on Simple Evangelization by Richard.
When Richard asked the Lord what He wanted to tell the group, He said, “Tell them how much I love them.”
Scripture Reading Jeremiah 17:5, 7, 10 – “True Wisdom – Thus says the Lord: Cursed is the man who trusts in human beings, who seeks his strength in flesh, whose heart turns away from the Lord. Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose hope is the Lord. I, the Lord, alone probe the mind and test the heart, to reward everyone according to his ways.”
Vision: Jesus had come down on the clouds of heaven and he was standing and thousands upon thousands of people were ascending with him. In the end times, we will see that we will ascend with him into glory. It’s just a very uplifting reminder of the beauty of sharing of God’s glory at the end of our lives.
Prophecy: “Mine is the kingdom and mine is the glory. But know that my kingdom will be your kingdom and my glory will be your glory. Come, follow me.”
Prophecy: “Who do you put your trust into? I tell you, do not put your trust into men, money or materials but put your trust in me. In the end that’s all that matters because once you’re finished in this life, the next life will be with me. So put your trust in me, seek me, walk with me and let me lead you. I love you all and you are all mine but I want you to remember that and I want you to think about it. Put your trust in me.”
Prophecy: “My people, I see your struggles each and every day. I see your pain, your fear. I see your joy. I see your peace. I see your healing. Come to me every day. I want to have a relationship with you. It needs to be closer. Come to me each day. You’ll learn everything you need to learn from me, my people. Trust in me.”
Video teaching by Fr. Bob Bedard on “The Church”. We are new Israel. 1 Cor 12:12-20, 2 Chron 16:9, Matt 28:19, Acts 2:42, Sirach 2:1, Acts 5 to 7, 9, 13, 15, 23, Eph 4:3-5, John 17:21, John 1:42, Matt 16:15-18, John 21:15-17. God is always looking for the remnant, so he could build upon them. Invite people to Jesus. It’s God’s job to draw them to the church. Church today should be the same as at the beginning. Power of the Holy Spirit accompanied the Word of God. We resist his power. Pray for people. Give God a chance to work. In early Church, there were disagreements, but they did not split. When we throw out authority, there are splits. God’s people are to be one. If not one, then power is not there. Church is one, holy, catholic/universal, apostolic, Roman/ Peter first leader.
Next week: NO MEETING BECAUSE OF CONFERENCE ON MAY 3, 4, 5.
Next Meeting: Wednesday, May 8.
Scripture reading Acts 7:16
Prophecy: “Come, come, my children, come praise me. I love to hear your praises. I love to hear your heart songs.”
Vision: When we were singing ‘let me be a sweet, sweet child on your lap’,
I saw many laps and it was as if Jesus was saying, “I hold you on my lap all at the same time.”
Prophecy: “Brothers and sisters, my heart aches for those who do not come to worship Me, for those who spend their time other than praising Me or coming to Me and don’t think of Me. I desire that you lift them up in prayer . For it is for the joy of My Father that your prayers are lifted up and I hear them and I will answer them. Come in prayer and trust because I desire that all should be saved and all should come to Me. Remember, as you celebrate this weekend, you’re celebrating the sacrifice for all men.
Pray for all people so they all are willing to come to Me. I desire you keep praying for them.”
Book of Nehemiah comes to mind, not any chapter in particular. Time of the rebuilding of the temple of Jerusalem. Israelites were exiled to Nineveh. The people had a sword in one hand and were building with the other.
Pray for other people. The sword represents Eph 6:17 sword of the Spirit -word of God. We are to know Jesus, know God, know the Holy Spirit in Scripture and be committed to Scripture. Live and breathe Scripture.
The word of God doesn’t return empty. We are a temple, rebuild our spiritual lives. We have lots of enemies against us – demons, doubt, fear – but by knowing the word of God (sword of the Spirit), we are powerful against demons.
April 17 – Fr. Bob Bedard on “The Holy Spirit” on video.
Scripture verse at beginning of meeting John 5:19-24: “Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise. The Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing; and he will show him greater works than these, so that you will be astonished. Indeed, just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whomever he wishes. The Father judges no one but has given all judgment to the Son, so that all may honour the Son just as they honour the Father. Anyone who does not honour the Son does not honour the Father who sent him. Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life.””
Vision: The Lord with a huge, huge grill pad in front of him and on it were some eggs that he was cooking for us. As we praise the Lord, he nourishes us spiritually. Also, when we praise the Lord, we break strongholds.
Prophecy: “Come, come, my beloved, I love you so dearly. I am embracing you now. I am hearing your heart’s cries. I’m answering your prayers. I do love you. I do hear you. Come, whisper your requests, your prayers because I am moving now. I’m filling your hearts to overflowing for your friends, your family, concerns. I love you, my dearest, I love you.”
Prophecy: “Who can know the beauty that I have prepared for each one of you? Stay on my path so that we may be together and you may experience this beautiful, beautiful time that I have prepared for you.”
“All of life is to give glory to God. Give glory to God in thought, Jesus Christ your worship. Who can be against you when God is for you? Children of the Most High, ……. children.”
Prophecy: Blame not others for your mistakes. When you make mistakes, admit them because it is the truth when you admit them and I am truth and just and I expect that from you. So blame nobody else but yourself. So, I ask you to examine yourself and come to me that I may clean you, set you free. Trust me”
“God, the Son” by Fr. Bob Bedard on video – Daniel 7:13, Isaiah 9:2, Isaiah 53:2, Psalm 22:1-18, John 1:12, Phil 2:6 & following, Col 1:15, John 1:1, (Rev 1:13-16 & Daniel 7:9 – good Scripture for visitors at door), John 4:34, Romans 7:15, John 5:19, Acts 4:12, Col 2:14-15, Matt 24:30, Phil 2:10-11. Our faith is a relationship with the person of Jesus Christ. How do we come to faith? We ask for it. Faith is a gift from God. Parents, teachers, etc., prepare ground work but do not give faith. God gives faith. Sometimes families can not protect children because the pull of the world is too strong. If we could do the divine will of the Father, how wonderfully he could work through us. There is a war going on inside of us. Kingdom of God exists in a person or place where God’s will is done perfectly. Greatest act of God’s power is to change hearts.
April 10 – Talk on “Transformation” given by Lori Ann at the main meeting to both the Life in the Spirit participants and the prayer group participants.
Scripture verse at beginning of meeting Deuteronomy 4:1 – “Moses spoke to the people: Israel, give heed to the statutes and ordinances that I am teaching you to observe, so that you may live to enter and occupy the land that the Lord, the God of your ancestors, is giving you.”
Scripture Reading John 1:16-17 – “From his fullness, we have all received grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”
Prophecy: “My children, I want to shower my gifts on you. Open your hearts wide. I love you with an everlasting love. You are mine and I claim you. Open your hearts wide and let me fill them.”
Prophecy: “I come to embrace you, my children. I come to love you. I come to fill you even more with myself. I come to give you new talents, new skills……..even closer so that you can follow me. Don’t resist the word that I give in your hearts, all of them and your joy will be even more complete. I want to fill you again and again making your joy more and more complete. So that in the troubled times, many will come, you will say, “Ah, I have the joy of the Lord in my heart, Ah, I have the joy of the Lord in my heart, my dearest children. Be in practice of listening to me. Be in practice of spending time with me, my dearest children, my dearest children. Rest in me. Let me fill you for your day. Let me fill you so the day’s problems won’t be a hiding place. We walk together, enjoy, my dearest love.”
Prophecy: “Who do you say that I am? Who do you say that I am in your life?”
Prophecy: “My children, I am coming. I am coming soon. Do not wait to talk to your neighbor. Do not wait to talk to your friend. Do not wait to talk to your church. Do not wait to talk to the stranger on the street. Do not wait to tell them all my love I have for them. I am your God. My Spirit will help you. My Spirit will guide you. Trust on him. He has all the gifts for you. Do not tarry, my children, for I am coming soon.”
Prophecy: “As the lightning flash from East to West, so I pour out my Spirit so that you will be filled. When you need my Spirit, my Spirit’s help or guidance, it is there. Trust me because I give the gifts of wisdom, knowledge and I’ll speak to your heart. Just open it and let my word come in. And also, read the Scriptures because it is my word written. Observe my word and live by it and trust me.”
Prophecy: “Great entry that leads to everlasting life in my kingdom today and into eternity; a great gift by the grace of God, the Holy Spirit, to abide in us all, to be one with our Creator, our God. The gift of the Son is a gift of the Spirit to lead and to guide in all truth. My kindness will envelope you. My gentleness will love you. Faith, hope and love, the greatest of all is the love of God, my love.”
Video teaching by Fr. Bob Bedard on “The Father”. Fr. Bedard’s experience – cultural faith, convicted Catholic faith, experienced faith.

Life in the Spirit Seminar – Talk on “Growth” by Richard.
Scripture Verse at beginning of meeting Phil 3:20: “He will give us a new form to this lowly body of ours and remake it according to the pattern of his glorified body, by his power to subject everything to himself.”
Vision/Prophecy: “As we were singing King of kings, I had a vision of our Lord Jesus on a white horse in a white robe. And the Lord was moving around us and he was touching each one of us saying to each one of us, “Put your faith and trust in me, my child. I will bring you peace. I will heal your burdens and your hurts. Put me first in your life.””
Scripture Readings: Jonah 2:8,10 “When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the Lord; my prayer reached you in your holy temple. I, with resounding praise, will sacrifice to you.” Rev 11:16 “The twenty-four elders who sat on their throne before God prostrated themselves and worshiped God and said, “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, who are and who were for you have assumed your great power and having salvaged your reign.””
Prophecy: “Take courage, my children, take courage for I am with you. Put your trust in me. Look to me in the difficulties of life. Life is hard here on earth, I know. But it is testing you. Are you willing to suffer and go through it for your glory that I will give you at the end? So look to me. Trust me because I am not leaving you an orphan but I am with you and you have proof of this in the Blessed Sacrament when you receive it. Trust me.”
Video teaching on the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.
Vision: Saw all of us in a pool of water, hot Summer, lots of trees and a waterfall. We jumped in, clothes and all, rejoicing in the Lord and we were raising our hands to get drops from the waterfall that was splashing onto us. We were raising our hands just like little children, rejoicing in the Lord and giving him thanks and the Lord said he wants us to come to him always like this, always like children rejoicing in him, giving him thanks, giving him praise because he moves the mountains in our praises.
Prophecy: “I come to embrace you. I come to love you. I come to hear your prayers and requests. You are all so precious to me, my darling children. I come close to you. State what you have to say. Give what you have to say. Don’t hold back because I am here waiting to hear from you, waiting to answer your prayers, waiting patiently because I love you. I embrace you, my dearest children.”
Vision: Saw Jesus with his arms outstretched and what it reminded me of was a father waiting for his children, waiting for us to come to him as he wanted to embrace us.
Prophecy: “My people, I desire that your hearts’ desire is, “Use me, here I am, here I am, use me.” This is what I desire from you. So come to me and ask for what I desire you to do. Pray about this and trust me when I lead you into it for what I desire you to do.”
Confirmation: I confirm that word. What the Lord was putting on my heart was, “You are my right arm. You are my voice. You are my love to others. I will use you if you will let me. Give me permission to use you.”

Scripture Reading at beginning of meeting: Psalm 100 – “Shout triumphantly to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Acknowledge that the Lord is God. He made us, and we are his — his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good, and his love is eternal; his faithfulness endures through all generations.”
Prophecy: I have called you here. I have put a path before you. Do not go where I have not called you or permitted you. I have an army. Each of you is in that army. I have a task for each one of you. Do as I have called you. Stay with me.”
Vision: “Saw a big white blanket/cloud, very thick over us, through us, surrounding us. Saw a golden candlestick like you would see on an altar.”
Prophecy: “I have come, I have come to embrace you, to love you, to put you on a new path, a new way to go. I will draw you even closer to myself. Thank you, my children. Listen to me. I am speaking in your hearts and your minds. Listen to me because I always want you to be near drawing yourself closer and closer so that I may pour of myself more and more into each one of your hearts, my dearest love, my dearest children. Come, sit with me because that is the time I can teach you. Sit with me so that we can spend time to love each other. Sit with me. There you will know my ways.”
Vision: “The Lord is pouring out many graces upon everyone here tonight. I saw gold circles over everyone tonight.”
Prophecy: “My children, I love you with an everlasting love. I have given you a path. Do not go to the right or to the left of it. You ask, “What is that path, Lord?” Ask me and I will reveal it to you.”
Prophecy: “When you read the Scripture, listen to what it says and think about it for my word that I have spoken is life. I speak true words of life. If you follow them, you will live. You will live in me and I in you. So when you read the Scripture and I want you to read the Scripture for those are my words that I have spoken and also the words that my Spirit has given to the apostles and to the prophets. It is my Spirit that gave them those words. Read the word, take it into your heart, think about it, let it dwell in your mind and live by the word.”

Life in the Spirit Seminar Session #4 – Receiving God’s Gift by Leann.
Scripture Reading at beginning of meeting: Genesis 8:20-22 – “Then Noah built an altar to the Lord, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And when the Lord smelled the pleasing odour, the Lord said in his heart, “I will never again curse the ground because of human beings, for the inclination of the human heart is evil from youth; nor will I ever again destroy every living creature as I have done. As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.”
Scripture Readings Micah 3:8 and Habakkuk 3:1-4 – “But as for me, I am filled with power, with the spirit of the Lord, with authority and with might.” “O Lord, I have heard your renown, and feared, O Lord, your work. In the course of the years revive it, in the course of the years make it known; in your wrath remember compassion. Covered are the heavens with his glory, and with his praise the earth is filled. His splendor spreads like the light; rays shine forth from beside him, where his power is concealed.”
Prophecy: “I love you, my children. I embrace you. I come close to you. I hear your hearts. Speak your requests, your prayers now and I will hear them. Draw near to me because I am waiting for you. Draw near to me because I love you so dearly. I want to be in the center, in the very presence of your heart, also. Thank you, thank you, come. I wait.”
Prophecy: “Come and listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches. Pray to the Lord of the harvest for there are many who seek me but they do not come to me. They need support. They need your prayer. I do answer prayer but they must be said. You must come to me in prayer for those who are not coming so that I can bless them, pour my graces on them and bring them to the church to worship. Yes, to keep the holy sacrifice of the Mass on Sunday. Come and listen to what my Spirit is saying to the churches. Pray to the Lord of the harvest.”
Prophecy: “I am greater than any of your problems. Have I not conquered the world? Fear not for I am with you always.”
“In Scripture, Jesus says if you have a banquet do not invite those who can repay you. Rather invite those who can’t repay you, the poor, the sick, the lame, those who are loved by no one. And so we ask, ‘Father, give us the grace to do this.’ ”
Word of Knowledge: That someone else has a word and is holding back.
“As it says in Scripture, ‘Ask and you shall receive,’ you may get what you want, but you, also, may not because it’s not good for us or it may not be the right time. ‘Knock and the door will be opened for you.’ Sometimes, it’s just a crack and then it opens wider. In God’s good time, it will be answered. He knows what is best.”
“There is no failing when you trust in your God Almighty. I give My children My Bread from Heaven. There is no mistake, My Bread is Life. Life sustained Eternally. Today is tomorrow one thousand times. Love has no boundaries when God is Glorified. Unstructured Love is God’s Mystical Love, tearing down the rubble, rebuilding new, a mystical soul, rebuilt from ruins. My child, this My Mystical Love set ablaze! Are you ready for the Fire of your God’s Love? Ride the Flame! Let us go around the world! This, My Love, shall you read. Your faith has ushered in the Will of God to set My Spirit on Fire, piercing through bone and marrow. Faith, My love, has made you very well. My pleasure is in My Love. You, My Love, are My Love., Bring to ME your desires; let your God satisfy the desires hidden, and alive within your heart. You are My Desire, I Am your desire, so shall our Desires come alive! Enter My Presence with all of who you are. Your heart is right.”
Rundown of Salvation history from Old Testament which includes Old Testament covenants, the sacrifices – Jewish Passover, the manna and the Ark of the Covenant by Shelley.
The teaching on February 27 will be on the sacrifice of Jesus, Communion and the Real Presence by Shelley.
Life in the Spirit Seminar Session #3 – Rosalie will speak on New Life.
Scripture Reading at beginning of meeting: Psalm 104:30 – “When you send forth your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the earth.” Meditation in Word Among Us – “God is always sending forth his Spirit to create new life and new possibilities. He is always at work to bring refreshment and renewal.”
Vision: “Partly through our worship time, I saw angels hovering us singing and playing trumpets very softly, joining with us in praise.”
Word of Knowledge: Healing of the big toe, particularly the right toe.
Prophecy: “Come my children, come. Come praise me. Come and worship me. Come adore me. I love to hear your voices. I love to hear the heart in your words, in your thoughts, in your deeds. I love to hear your souls sing to me and your love for me. I want to embrace you. I want to love you. I want to draw you even closer to me, my dearest children. My dearest children, my dearest children, come, come.”
Prophecy: “I am so pleased that each of you is here and I’m especially pleased that the new comers are here. During these eight weeks, I will have so much for you to learn. You will learn a lot and I ask you to continue to learn, to continue to grow even after the eight weeks are over for I have much for each one of you to do. Every person here, I have a purpose for each one of you and each purpose is different. So continue to learn and continue to draw closer to me and I will have much for you to do.”
Prophecy: “My people, I want you to know who I am and what I have done for you. There are people who will not acknowledge that I am the God that you serve. Tell those people, tell them take a look around you and see what holds the sun in its place, the moon, the stars. What makes the sun get up in the morning in the East and set in the West. Something is controlling that. Well, I’ll tell you. It is I, the Lord who controls that. So tell those people, whoever tells you that they don’t believe, tell them to really look at and they’ll have no excuse not to believe and if they don’t believe, you have done your part by pointing that out to them. I am counting on you. So follow me and trust me for I walk with you.”
Prophecy: “I embrace you as you are truly my children, sons and daughters of God the Most High.”
Scripture Reading 117 – “Praise the Lord, all nations. Praise him, all people. For his love is strong and faithfulness is eternal.”
How to Pray for Healing by Linda. Zech 4:6 (by my spirt), Luke 7:7-22, John 14:12 (faith, ask in name of Jesus), Mark 16:16-18 (power and authority), Isaiah 53:5 (by His stripes). Always witness that it was JESUS who healed you. Grow in your relationship with Jesus. Pray with confidence. We pray, hope, trust and let God do the rest. Always respect the person. Ask Holy Spirit to guide. Pray in tongues. Be accountable to leaders. Two or three on team. Command in name of Jesus. Thank Jesus and have person check it out. Doubt and unbelief block healing. Be persistent in prayer. Ask permission to lay hands. Lay hands on area or have person lay hands on area. Do not shout but pray with authority. Pray with your eyes open. Tell person pain can return. Tell them to rebuke the pain. Also, they can come back for more ministry. If person resting in Spirit, let them rest. Don’t say, “If it be your will.” Can say, “According to your will.” Discern if words are from yourself wanting the best for the person or if they are truly from the Lord. Don’t tell person not to take their medication. Let doctor tell them that. Have trouble with “claim your healing”. Just be open to receiving the gift and thank him. Don’t see devil in every infirmity. Some manifestations are not from the devil. They could be from hurts in the past.
This was followed by praying for those needing physical healing. Improvement was noted by all.

God is king over all the earth; sing hymns of praise. God rules over the nations and sits upon his holy throne. The rulers of the earth belong to God who is enthroned on high.”

Now trust me and walk with me. Shoulder your cross and you will receive the crown of glory. Trust me.”
Scripture Reading – Mark 5:25-34: “Now there was a woman who had suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years; after long and painful treatment under various doctors, she had spent all she had without being any the better for it, in fact, she was getting worse. She had heard about Jesus, and she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his cloak. “If I can touch even his clothes,” she had told herself, “I shall be well again.” And the source of the bleeding dried up instantly, and she felt in herself that she was cured of her complaint. Immediately aware that power had gone out from him, Jesus turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?” His disciples said to him, “You see how the crowd is pressing around you and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’ ” But he continued to look around to see who had done it. Then the woman came forward, frightened and trembling because she knew what had happened to her, and she fell at his feet and told him the whole truth. “My daughter,” he said, “your faith has restored you to health; go in peace and be free from your complaint.”

It will also be the first session in the Life in the Spirit Seminar – God’s Love.
Scripture Reading at beginning of meeting: Philippians 2:9-11 – “For this reason God raised him to the highest place above, and gave him the name that is greater than any other name. And so, in honor of the name of Jesus, all beings in heaven, on earth, and in the world below will fall on their knees, and all will openly proclaim that Jesus Christ is the Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Scripture Reading Micah 3:8 – “As for me, I am filled with power, with the spirit of the Lord, with authority and with might.” As we open our hearts to the Lord, Jesus is saying to us, “Get ready for a move of my Spirit amongst my people.”
Prophecy: “Many there is who desire to know me, so I desire that you pray for those people. Pray to the Lord of the harvest for I desire to pour my Spirit upon all mankind but they need prayer. You, I am counting on you because I use you, you who are left here on earth pray for others to come to know me. I desire to have all men come to me. Pray for them.”
Scripture Reading Jeremiah 31:33 – “The new covenant that I will make with the people of Israel will be this: I will put my law within them and write it on their hearts. I will be their God and they shall be my people.”
Scripture Reading Luke 1:76-79 – “And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways, to give knowledge of salvation to his people in the forgiveness of their sins, through the tender mercy of our God, when the day shall dawn upon us from on high to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”
There is Power in the Name of Jesus. St. Bernard of Clairvaux wrote, “The name of Jesus is light when it is preached to us; it is food when we think upon it; it is medicine that soothes our pains when we invoke it.” Luke 10:19 – Look, I give you authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. And nothing shall by any means hurt you. Jesus has given us power of attorney, and power and authority to operate in His name. How we are to use it comes from knowing our identity in Christ. St. Bernardine of Siena was a preacher renowned for his love for the Holy Name of Jesus.

Teaching on February 6 – The Works of the Devil by Jacqueline.
Opening Scripture Reading Luke 4:14-21 – Comment on reading: All of us have been sent to bring the good news to all we meet.
“While we were worshipping and praising Jesus, I could sense all of us rising up from all of our problems, rising up to the heights of heaven to be with Jesus.”
“I sensed the praise going up to God and the Psalm that came to my mind was “The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?””
“I kept hearing the words, “Praise me, praise me, praise me. Praise me in all that is troubling you. Praise me through the darkness. Praise me through the light. Praise me and I will be there. Praise me. Never forget to praise me.” And I have a reading from 1 Chron 16:32, “Let the sea roar and all that fills it; let the fields exalt and everything in it. Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.” 1 Chron 16:36, “Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. And all the people said, “Amen and Praise the Lord.””
Scripture Reading Jeremiah 31:20 – “Israel, you are my dearest child, the one I love best. Whenever I mention your name, I think of you with love. My heart goes out to you. I will be merciful.”
Sharing of Rosalie’s perseverance through the many storms in her life.
Maria K. shared a number of incidents that happened to her this past weekend in which she continued to praise the Lord and it reminded her that our actions are important, that people watch us. Maria went to Canadian Tire to purchase a new battery for her car. When she was told it would be around $200.00, her first instinct was to be upset because it was another bill. But she started to praise the Lord (talking out loud to herself), “Thank you God that I have the money to pay for this., etc., etc.” The young man working behind the counter said, “I know you. You go to St. Ignatius. You’re the lady who keeps singing and dancing when the band is playing. Your hands are always like this (hands up in praise). I recognized you because you were praising the Lord.” That was a lesson for her that when we start getting upset, we don’t know who knows us, who’s watching. It was lesson that we keep praising God. His people do watch us. When we curse, people see it. When we get angry and blame everybody, people see it.
January 30 – There is power in the name of Jesus by Richard.
Prophecy: “My children, do not doubt me. Do not fear me for I am real. If you do not believe, test me. Test me and see that I listen, that I hear, that I love you. My children, do this in memory of me.”
Prophecy: “No, you have not denied me but I call you to a deeper walk, a much deeper walk. I have planned a way. All I ask you to do is to say yes and come with me and I will lead you.”
Prophecy: “Run to me, run into my arms. Do not spend time regretting the past. I am always ready to receive you.”
“I’m getting a sense of God’s love for us. I get the sense that he wants us to come so much closer to him (confirmation of second prophecy). He wants us to know him in a different way. He wants us to be surrounded by his love. He wants us to be surrounded by his compassion. He wants us to be surrounded by his truth. He wants us to feel his arms around us holding us close to his heart. Now, I’m seeing a huge YES. Do we say yes to him, to all that he has for us? He will not come in that way unless we give him permission.”
Vision: “I would like to confirm that. When we started singing, “Here we are Lord,” I saw the whole Trinity rejoicing that we were there and the love and compassion that they poured out on all of us. They are so, so happy and they do want us to come to them and let them be intimate with us.”
Scripture Reading Psalm 78:1-4: “Listen, my people, to my teachings and pay attention to what I say. I am going to use wise sayings and explain mysteries from the past, things we have heard and known, things that our ancestors told us, we will not keep them from our children. We will tell the next generation about the Lord’s power and his great deeds and the wonderful things he has done.”
Presentation by Lori Ann – In 1965, Paul Harvey wrote what the devil would have to do to take over the world. Today, we see all these things. Paganization of Christian life. One thing is to jam our minds, keep them busy so that we don’t have time to spend with the Lord. Busy, Busy. The Holy Spirit is our hope. As a branch is connected to the tree, we need to stay connected with the Lord….prayer, reading bible, etc. As we stay connected our fruit will grow and then we are to share our fruit.
January 23 presentation by Rosalie.
Prophecy: “My children, be anxious for nothing, but in all things bring your petitions to me with praise and thanksgiving. My people, praise me, praise me in the darkness, praise me in the light. Praise me. Why are you anxious? My word says, ‘Be anxious for nothing.’ Read my Word. Eat my Word. Praise me.”
Vision/prophecy: “I saw the Lord wearing a winter jacket. It was very cold. The jacket was open and you could see his heart, his Sacred heart and he said, “Go and feed my people. Feed them your love.” ?? try to weaken you, make it hard for you but to be strong and go forth and to feed his people with his love.”
Prophecy: “Let the Alleluia be in your heart and trust me. When you praise me, you’re worshipping. You’re like the angels when they appeared to the shepherds and a mighty host of angels sang Alleluia. Let that Alleluia be in your heart and trust me.”
Prophecy: “My people, why are you so afraid to speak what I have placed on your heart? Why do you feel that others are better than you or stronger than you in their gifts? I have placed a word on your heart. You know who you are. That word that I have placed on your heart is for everyone else and I love you as much as I love everyone else.”
Prophecy: “Render to me what belongs to me, your worship, your worship of me belongs to me. Bring it to me and worship me because I delight in your worship.”
Vision: “There was something that the Lord showed me and I thought it was just for me, but maybe it’s not. He showed me when he was saying to feed his people with his love that sometimes it’s like you’re walking on a tight rope and we fall very easily.”
Surrendering to Christ through the Holy Spirit & Shelley’s journey.
Shelley’s praise report: Husband in Saskatoon and Shelley does not use the snow blower. She went out to use it and she didn’t get very far. She prayed, “Lord, if this driveway is going to get ploughed, it’s going to be you who does it because I’m not using that machine.” They live in a cove and when the trucks came by today, they flattened her driveway. She went, “Yes, the Lord does driveways!”
Pasqua shared about the healing of her granddaughter through prayer. Look under “Answers to Prayer”.
