27 Minutes to Midnight
It is a 4-letter word.
When you have it, you can shortcut your journey to success.
When you lack it, life’s journey becomes a grind.
Years ago, I gave the same prayer to two people.
They were both believers.
Facing the same stubborn generational problem.
Before they “stumbled” on our websites…
They had prayed for years and years (so they told me).
What I gave them was exactly the same. Same prayers.
Same Bible verses to anchor the prayers.
Same step-by-step instructions on how to pray.
One prayed… nothing happened.
In frustration she cried: The scripture you sent me is just a lie!
The other prayed … something dramatic happened.
With great excitement she screamed:
The prayers have done wonders!
What made the difference?
The 4-letter word I’m about to show you.
If you’ll give me your full
attention for the next 27 minutes…
… you stand to reap a harvest of blessings that will last throughout the year and beyond.
In 2022 we face giant enemies (even more stubborn than before)
Together, we are about to put them out of business.
Before we begin, please close your eyes and take these 3 prayers with a holy shout:
- O LORD clothe me with Your mantle of fire.
- My soul receive the divine touch of fire in the name of Jesus.
- O LORD let your holy fire anointing fall upon me now in the name of Jesus.
Praise the LORD.
Now we are ready.
How to ignite the fire
for daily testimonies in 2022
Let’s go straight to the point.
Since you are spending your precious time reading this…
I assume you are serious about living a victorious life all through the year.
For your dreams and godly desires to become reality you need one thing in your life.
That one thing is called: F-I-R-E
Before we go further, let’s look at 2 key scriptures.
Please keep these at the back of your mind.
My heart grew hot within me.
While I meditated, the fire burned;
then I spoke with my tongue - Ps 39:3 (NIV)
And they said one to another, did not our heart burn within us,
while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? - Luke 24:32
The first scripture takes us behind the scenes to show what had to happen before the prophetic utterances that we read all through the Bible.
No biblical prophet ever spoke without the fire being ignited in their spirit.
The second verse of course refers to an incident that took place after the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
He met some disciples and began to speak to them…
Words of fire.
Their hearts “burned” when He spoke to them.
There was a fire transfer through the spoken word.
(As you read this, a transference of fire through the written word is taking place).
There is nothing that the enemy fears more than a believer who is operating in the realm of fire.
It is the fire that provokes 24-hour testimonies – no waiting, no delay.
It is the fire that turns ordinary looking prayers (in the mouth of fire-filled believers) into devastating missiles against the enemy in the realm of the spirit.
It is the fire that opens the ears to hear and eyes to see deep into the realm of the Spirit… as if you’re watching a movie.
Once you’re plugged into the fire you will find yourself always in touch with the prophetic livestream …
… where you will experience the heavenly realm just like the great prophets of old.
What is this fire and
where does it come from?
To answer that question, we have to go back in time … just before the birth of the Christian Church.
John the Baptist declared:
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire. - Matt 3:11
We know this actually came to pass:
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. - Acts 2:1-4
This baptism of fire is a uniquely Christian experience.
It comes after salvation.
It is a great idea to read through Acts of the Apostles from time to time to remind ourselves of this.
Today’s watered-down messages have mostly skipped this essential spiritual experience (to everyone’s detriment).
But here’s the truth:
“Destitute of the fire of God, nothing else counts;
possessing the fire, nothing else matters.”
That’s how one minister of God summed it up a century ago.
He wrote that after a powerful encounter which he describes as follows:
Hour after hour, since I wrote the headline of this chapter, my mind has been held in the same reverential awe. I have written and preached much on the Holy Spirit, for the knowledge of Him has been the most vital fact of my experience.
I owe everything to the gift of Pentecost. It came to me when I was not seeking it. I was about my Heavenly Father's business, seeking means whereby I could do the work to which He had called and sent me, and in my search I came across a prophet, heard a testimony, and set out to seek I knew not what.
I knew that it was a bigger thing than I had ever known. It came along the line of duty, in a crisis of obedience. When it came I could not explain what had happened, but I was aware of things unspeakable and full of glory.
Some results were immediate. There came into my soul a deep peace, a thrilling joy, and a new sense of power. My mind was quickened. I felt that I had received a new faculty of understanding. Every power was vitalized. My bodily powers were quickened.
There was a new sense of spring and vitality, a new power of endurance, and a strong man's exhilaration in big things. Things began to happen. What we had failed to do by strenuous endeavor came to pass without labor.
It was as when the Lord Jesus stepped into the boat that with all their rowing had made no progress, "immediately the ship was at the land whither they went." It was gloriously wonderful.
The things that happened were the least part of the experience. The wind and the fire and the tongues excited most comment, but they vanished, and it was the realities that remained that were most wonderful.
The experience gave me the key to all my thinking, all my service, and all my life. Pentecost gave me the key to the Scriptures. It has kept my feet in all the slippery places of all sorts of criticism.
The things that are stumbling blocks to so many are steppingstones to me. The inexplicable becomes plain when we recognize the Presence and Law of the Spirit. It balances scholarship, and gives discernment beyond all human learning.
Indeed, learning without the Holy Ghost blinds men to the realities of Divine truth. The man who thinks he can know the Word of God by mere intellectual study is greatly deceived. Spiritual truth is spiritually discerned.
– Samuel Chadwick, The Way to Pentecost
So, what is this fire?
In our Membership Forum, we offer something called the Prayer Academy.
It is a series of 7 lessons designed to practically walk you, step by step, into the realm of fire.
Here’s an excerpt from Lesson 5 (of the Prayer Academy).
It describes the “Chapter Six Experience” – something urgently needed by every believer in every generation.
If there is one lesson that you should always remember about the Prayer Academy, it would be this one...
Because what you will see in a few minutes will totally revolutionize your spiritual life ... when you allow it to sink in and take root.
It is the secret weapon that men and women of God have used throughout the ages to turn the tide against the enemy, and in the process, open the floodgates of breakthroughs in their lives, ministries and communities.
In many places where the LORD manifested in the Bible, there was fire.
In the sacrifices offered by Abraham, Moses, Solomon and others, you'll see that fire was always present.
And wherever the fire of God falls, His glory always follows.
A few quick examples:
Elijah was on Mount Carmel, standing against 850 satanic prophets. Because of the fire of God in his life, he was able to overcome and prevail.
In Lamentations 1: 13a, we read:
"From above hath he sent fire into my bones, and it prevailed against them"
You see, the fire of God can show up in many ways. On the one hand it works to purify or refine us. On the other hand, it also works to destroy the enemies of God.
We just saw the famous Mt. Carmel episode. Let's draw 2 more examples before I make a crucial point.
In 2 Chronicles 7:1-2:
Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house.
And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD's house. - 2 Chr. 7:1-2
This is King Solomon in action.
Here's the scenario:
He had just completed the most magnificent temple ever built to the LORD at that time. Come the day of dedication, everything was set. The guests had arrived from far and wide. The sacrifice was on the altar.
But something was missing.
Then Solomon began to pray. As soon as he finished praying, the fire fell ... and the glory of the LORD filled the temple.
Let's fast forward to the book of Acts in the New Testament to look at a very similar incident in Acts 2:1-4:
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
This is the world-changing Pentecostal experience that formally marked the beginning of the Christian era.
You know today, Christians seem to dwell more on the power of the tongue than on the fire whenever they talk about this Pentecostal experience.
But the fire is crucially important. In a very real sense, this is the missing ingredient in modern day Christianity.
Because it is the fire that purges, refines and purifies the life of a believer, making way for signs and wonders to follow.
See this scripture in Matt 3:11-12:
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
I want to make sure you notice 2 note-worthy things in the passage above: the chaff and the wheat.
The chaff represents sin and self.
The wheat represents the nature of Jesus in our lives.
When the fire falls on your life, the chaff gets consumed and only the nature of Jesus is left standing.
Please listen carefully:
This purging is the birthplace, the absolute starting point of lasting breakthroughs, whether you are speaking about spiritual or physical breakthroughs.
When you allow the fire of God to work in your life, the first thing that will leave is hypocrisy.
When the fire fell on the Apostles, they stopped arguing about who was going to lead (church posts). Instead they marched forth together and turned the then known world upside down for Jesus.
During the time of Isaiah the prophet, you notice an interesting thing that happened. For those who do not know, Isaiah is regarded as the Messianic prophet. His prophecies about the coming of Christ sometimes read like New Testament material.
In the first 5 chapters of his prophetic book, we find him prophesying, and by today's standard he seemed to be doing quite well.
Until something happened in chapter 6 that changed everything for him. Let's pick it up from scripture:
In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.
Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. - Isa 6:1-7
This “Chapter 6 Experience”
Is For Every Believer In Every Generation
To gain a fresh perspective on what really happened, let's step back for a bit of background ...
- Isaiah's prophetic ministry spanned the reign of 4 kings.
- Chapters 1 - 5 of his prophecies show the activities of the seer who saw many things except God and himself.
- You see the case of a prophet who was close to the earthly king of Judah but was blind to the reality of the eternal King of kings.
- The death of King Uzziah was the shock therapy, a wake-up call, that the prophet needed to cure him of his spiritual blindness.
That's when he saw the LORD ... and things became more exciting!
To see the LORD is an awesome experience. It is a life-transforming encounter.
Seeing the LORD in His indescribable purity enabled him to see his naked, sinful nature.
It enabled him to locate with pinpoint accuracy what his problem was:
That still remains the problem of most people today. And you can tell if you might be afflicted with this disease if you notice the following regularly manifesting in your life:
- compulsive lying, flattering, jesting, idle talking, excuse making, self-praise, backbiting, gossiping, speaking evil of others, hypocrisy, etc.
For Isaiah, an instantaneous change occurred when the fire was applied to his tongue.
A wonderful, deep penetrating, far-reaching purging took place immediately.
And the prophet was now ready to fulfill his divine assignment.
How can we tell?
1. He did 5 chapters before the fire but did 60 chapters after the fire.
2. His ministry (after the fire) was clearly outstanding. He correctly predicted the coming of the Messiah, even right down to the details of his birth.
3. He delivered woe to the rebellious, warning to the wicked and prophesied comfort to those who were discouraged.
4. This Chapter 6 Experience is compulsory for every believer. We all have the promise of this singular experience:
"Jesus baptizes with the Holy Ghost and Fire"
The Other Side of the Coin
What happens if someone remains untouched by this fire?
The fruits of the Spirit cannot manifest in such a life. The Christian journey becomes harder than it should be.
It brings frustration, discouragement and even backsliding!
The question is:
Do you have this fire of God in your life? Do you seek it?
Because something incredible happens when the fire is in action.
What happens when the fire falls on you?
When the fire of God really falls upon your life, your life will undergo an immediate, noticeable transformation.
All the worldliness will be consumed. You will lose all interest in many of the things that preoccupy you now.
That's right. People around you will notice.
And this is glorious ... the LORD will begin to speak to you as a friend.
Suddenly, you will be able to understand how this ancient prophet felt when he said:
Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name.
But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay. – Jer. 20:9
How delightful will it be if the testimony of modern believers was like that of Jeremiah above?
At this point, I must not neglect to tell you that there are 5 levels of fire:
Level 1 - ASH
Christians at this level have expired spiritually. Like King Solomon shortly before his death. The man who once prayed fire down from Heaven eventually succumbed to the lure of strange women. And ended up with 300 wives and 700 concubines!
People operating at this level will be seeing spirit spouses in the dream ... and satanic arrows will be working fulltime in their lives…
(See Lesson 5 PDF for more…)
Friend, we all need this “Chapter 6 Experience” to operate in victory all through 2022.
This is the only thing that will make your stubborn enemies to back off…
… and hastily release whatever they had stolen, captured, or confiscated from you.
This year 2022 is the year to urgently ignite the holy fire in your life.
If you’ll focus 75 percent of your prayers this year on igniting the fire of the Holy Ghost in your life…
- You will become extraordinary.
- Your service to the LORD will create an impact that cannot be denied.
- Before long, your life, family and ministry will become a reference point of testimonies and breakthroughs.
Of course, there will still be battles to fight.
But you will not be fighting with your own strength and wisdom.
When you finally join those who are walking in this fire, you will be operating in a realm that might seem incredible to many, including believers who have not experienced this yet.
The presence of just one of such believers can change the spiritual atmosphere of any environment…
… from darkness to light.
Look at this true-life testimony from our Eagles Forum:
“I would like to inform you that l am now surrounded with fire. It started when I joined PA. However when my husband passed away it subsided l believe this was caused by grief. When l was in UK the places I used to sit and pray would start to burn, after some time white beautiful flowers would appear!
Then I left the UK to another country. I live in the center of the town where there is no bush. But there is heap of a compost opposite my bedroom window. As soon as l start to pray it start to burn. At first l was not sure l thought someone had put on the fire! Then while passing there the Holy Spirit revealed to me that fire represent the presence of the LORD. You are now surrounded with the presence of LORD wherever you go."
I had noticed that cars and vendors selling their fruits prefer to come and park near that bush! When l moved in it never used be like that.
When l mentioned the fire to a friend she said that she first felt the fire when l prayed for her mother who was ill on the phone in 2020.
And then last week she felt the fire when l did the opening prayer for our conference on Zoom during our yearly church conference.
A lot of shocking things had been happening l can write a book! Glory to the Lord for all these wonders and miracles that are happening!
Thank you for teaching us to pray!”
- Eagle on Fire
Her experience reminds me of the story of John Knox, the fiery prayer warrior preacher used as a vessel to bring revival to Scotland in the 16th century.
Legend has it that he would often spend hours in his closet, praying for a spiritual awakening in his nation.
Then he would go on the streets to preach.
Walking past the bars and brothels that littered the city streets was all it took to bring sinners within the vicinity to their knees, crying out in repentance.
His mere presence set the whole environment on fire (spiritually).
He prayed some famous prayers.
One commentator said:
Mary, Queen of Scots, is reputed to have said, “I fear the prayers of John Knox more than all the assembled armies of Europe.” Why do you think the Queen said this? Well, because she saw the impact of Knox’s prayer.
From a human point of view, it was the prayer of Knox that sparked the Reformation in Scotland. His prayer became the fuel of the ongoing reformation during his time. His prayer shook the land of Scotland, causing a revival among God’s people.
Perhaps of all the prayers of Knox, “Give me Scotland, or I die” is the most quoted one. It was not an arrogant prayer but a passionate plea, showing his intense desire for the conversion of the people of Scotland.
His prayer was an expression of his great confidence in God. One of Knox’s mottos was “one man with God is always in the majority.”
Let’s pause for a moment to take this in.
In his time there was an epidemic of sin, ungodliness, and disease.
In our time there is an outbreak of ungodliness, sexual perversion, and global deception on a scale no one could have imagined just a few years ago.
Everywhere we see believers going through the motions of prayer.
The question to ask is:
Why are the prayers bearing so little fruits?
The possible answer?
Our prayers lack the holy fire … of people like John Knox, Samuel Chadwick, and a host of others.
The good news for us is that all this is about to change.
The year of a million testimonies?
If you are ready to take this message to heart…
… and you’re determined to put it into practice…
… then you should be prepared for a flow of daily testimonies that will surprise your friends and shock your enemies.
Before we go to the prayers, let me quickly share something about testimonies here.
In the Early Church the believers were focused on 3 foundational activities:
#1. Prayer and scripture study
In Acts 6:2-4 we read:
Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable that we should leave the word of God and serve tables. Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business; but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.”
Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.” And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
Prayer. The Word. Testimonies.
See how they came back from the mission field and immediately began to share testimonies?
These testimonies were powerful weapons in their arsenal used in spreading the gospel.
They boldly preached the gospel.
Signs and wonders followed.
News of these miracles preceded them wherever they went…
… validating and confirming the truth and power of the message they were preaching.
It was exciting then.
It is exciting now (once you throw testimonies into the mix).
Today, half the visitors to our websites found us through a testimony that someone shared.
One of the things we teach is that testimony begets testimony.
If anyone carefully follows the steps the testifier took, more often than not, they get to experience something similar.
Like this one:
“Greetings in the name of our lord Jesus Christ, I write to testify to the goodness of the lord through your ministry. i am subscribed to your mailing list and i received an email about a prayer eagle who was in need of a car but did not have money for it, the email included the following prayer,
"Let the presence, dominion, authority and blessings of God be experienced in this environment in the name of Jesus"
seeing i was also in need of a car but without money. I decided to use the same exact prayer. Before then, I had already reached out to my helpers for financial assistance without getting any response. but after praying the above prayer in the evening, following day in the morning my helpers reached out to me and money was released to buy a car, hallelujah to Jehovah after many stumbling blocks, i can testify that yesterday i made the car payment to the glory of Jehovah the covenant keeping God.” - Chimwemwe
Note carefully that when we share our testimonies…
… the steps and even the prayers and scriptures that triggered the miracles are described in detail.
This is a requirement … so that anyone who is believing God for such a testimony can easily model the steps to victory.
This is one distinction about our testimonies.
Praise the LORD.
This year our goal is to record 1 million testimonies!
To this end…
… we created a brand-new web app where you can easily share your testimonies with the world.
By so doing, you will be inspiring thousands to believe God for similar testimonies …
… while equipping them to take the action necessary to receiving and sharing their own testimonies.
It can be very empowering to read a testimony about how the LORD just solved a similar problem for someone else …
… a problem that might be giving you sleepless nights (with the devil telling you there’s no way out).
However, with a testimony shared by a fellow believer, your faith will be activated to believe God for your very own.
Because as Apostle Peter observed:
Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons – Acts 10:34
What the LORD has done for one, He can do for you too…
… provided you are willing to do what the others did!
Believe me when I say this:
2022 is going to be catastrophic for the Pharaohs, Goliaths and Herods currently fighting the Church and the children of God everywhere.
We named it Testigram
Look at it this way:
Just like Instagram is a story sharing app, this one is a testimony sharing app.
The first of its kind anywhere.
Very soon it will become a full-fledged app accessible through the AppStore and Google Play.
By the end of January 2022, the livestreaming feature will be enabled.
Meaning you won’t even have to type in anything.
Making things so much easier.
You can just livestream the whole testimony and click a button to instantly share with friends on WhatsApp, Facebook and other social media.
Here’s the 3 simple steps to share your testimony:
Before we go to the prayers, here’s our classic message at the gates of the New Year (for the benefit of those who are here for the first time).
* Classic Message at The Gates Begins *
There are 3 key principles that you need to arm yourself with.
Here's the VERY first one.
You need to apply it diligently at the "gate" i.e. midnight as Dec 31, 2021 transitions into Jan 1, 2022.
(The rest I will continue to share inside the Members Forum which opens shortly).
If you're ready, let's go...
Why We Pray
At The Gates of The New Year
We'll open this section with a short prayer.
Please just close your eyes where you are now and fire this singular prayer bullet with fire in your spirit:
"O LORD, open my spiritual understanding today in the name of Jesus. Amen."
Let's start off by looking at the popular story of the ten virgins.
In Matthew 25:1-10 we read:
"Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
They that were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut."
This is a familiar story.
Two phrases are of particular interest to us here:
(i) At midnight there was a cry made...
(ii) The door was shut...
We pull out the first 2 keys from the verses above.
Here is Key #1
Midnight is the time when "doors" are spiritually shut against people in the realm of the spirit.
Then Key #2
It is also a time when satanic cries are made against people by the evil powers operating along the bloodlines of their families.
Please hold these thoughts while we back up to Psalm 24:7-10:
"Lift up your head, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory."
Again, we see the word "doors" but this time, at the appearance of an Almighty, Sovereign Power...
... instead of being shut, the door (and gate) is being commanded to "lift up" i.e. to open immediately.
Putting what we've read so far together, we arrive at the inescapable conclusion that doors can be opened and shut in the spiritual realm.
These "doors" might be invisible to the carnal eye.
They are spiritual realities all the same.
In many places in the Bible, we see references to doors and gates.
For instance, we find them at:
- the entry point to cities (1 Kings 17)
- temples (Acts 3)
- prisons (Acts 12)
- palaces (Esther 5)
At the gates of the city, important decisions, judgments and verdicts were handed down.
Controversies were settled there.
Deals were cut and transactions sealed at the gate.
Honor was bestowed at the gate.
Blessings were pronounced at the gate...
And curses were issued as punishment for offenses at the gate.
Matter of fact, the gate played such a pivotal role in the life of every community that in times of war...
... the enemy's first order of business was to seize control of the gate!
What's this got to do with the New Year?
You may liken the New Year to a well-fortified city with a strong gate.
The gate is the entry point into the city.
Please Listen Carefully...
For the purpose of this conversation...
The door or gate of the New Year is currently shut.
It is supposed to swing open IN THE SPIRIT at 12 midnight on January 1st.
Notice that I used the word, 'supposed' ... that is what should happen in an ideal situation.
The reality, however, is that for most people, the gate of the New Year never truly opens to them spiritually...
... it remains tightly shut against them year after year, often without their knowledge!
Why is this so?
The Bible reveals that there are invisible "horsemen setting themselves in array at the gate" (Isaiah 22:7).
And here's the SECRET revealed:
The entrance or gate to the New Year is the midnight hour between December 31 and January 1st.
The truth remains that this gate is the theater of the hottest spiritual battle you can think of.
Whoever takes control of that gate in the crucial first few seconds of the New Year determines what happens throughout the entire year!
What I'm sharing with you is well-understood by the children of darkness.
No wonder our Lord Jesus once said:
... for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light - Luke 16:8b
At the critical midnight hour between December 31st and January 1st the children of this world (darkness) ...
... that the Lord Jesus is referring to here will be busy taking off in their evil hovercraft and making evil prophetic pronouncements to...
- renew ancient, generational bondage in the lives of their victims.
- capture the entire year spiritually (thereby shutting the gates of the next 12 months against unsuspecting people).
At this exact same time, modern-day believers will be dancing and partying the night away!
Unknown to them --
At this critical hour of midnight when the new year is being "delivered" (think of a woman in labor) ...
... whatever decrees are issued (good or bad) have the capacity to alter the destiny of an individual, family, church or nation.
Let's bring this closer to home...
This May Hurt…
You remember ...
How many prophecies of greatness and prosperity that Christians (including you) usually receive at the beginning of every year?
How many of them ever come to pass?
You know why?
At the most critical first few seconds of the New Year, the enemy gets busy "shutting the gate" and cancelling those prophecies ...
... by issuing wicked, ungodly decrees against people, using words anointed with satanic power!
- Doors of opportunity remained tightly shut throughout the year.
- The heavens refused to open and pour out the expected blessings in abundance.
- Divine benefits refused to manifest.
- Divine helpers? Nowhere to be found!
- Most prayers went unanswered... leaving so many scratching their heads.
If you keep records of all the wonderful prophecies received every New Year (like I do) you'll realize that most of them NEVER see the light of day.
It doesn't matter how many great men or women of God prophesied.
Because Christians allow the enemy (either out of ignorance or sheer laziness) to take control of the GATES when it mattered most...
At the critical moment of transition...
... when most people are in slumber or dancing the night away.
You see, in the spiritual realm, just one second's delay can cost you an entire year.
Like the prayer bullets you see shortly, if you were to pray them at any other time of the year, you won't achieve the same results.
[except in very few cases as we will discuss at various times during the year in the Members' Forum].
Thankfully, the Lord has not left us ignorant about this matter.
The Battle Plan
17 years ago, The LORD gave us the battle plan which has never failed.
Those who meet us at the gates are the very ones sharing tens of thousands of testimonies on our websites year in year out.
If we execute on this plan diligently...

Be An Overcomer
With This Year's Prayers
As we approach the start of the program on December 30, 2021...
There is ONE key that unlocks everything.
That key is:
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. – Matt 6:33
Without it nothing else will work.
For these prayers to BRING ANY ANSWERS, you must first surrender your life to the Lord Jesus Christ.
#1: You must be genuinely born again
If you are not, you may be putting yourself in danger praying this kind of warfare prayers you are about to see shortly. If you are not willing to surrender all to the Lord Jesus, I suggest you stop reading now.
#2: Living a holy life is non-negotiable
You could get into serious trouble if you pray this type of prayers while continuing to live in sin. As soon as you read this, the Holy Spirit will bring conviction to your heart if you are living in any known sin. My advice is that you drop this material immediately, go on your knees and repent. Please do not go back to your vomit.
Here’s a great demonstration of genuine repentance:
Sex Maniac No More!
“I was baptized and confirmed in one of the Orthodox Churches several years ago but still lived a sinful life.
A persistent alcoholic, a sex maniac and still participating in idol worship and other sinful practices habits.
After going through the instructions here, I went into confession of all my sins as well as my ancestors. I started the prayers.
I am now in day 13 of the 2nd Week of Pre-Marathon Prayers.
I have joined a new Bible believing Church where we spend a lot of time praying individually.
The good news is I visited some friends and they gave me alcohol of low percentage. When I tasted it, I started having severe headache and I stopped. I knew the Holy Spirit had convicted me.
The woman I had a daughter with and rejected has also been accepted back because I performed our traditional customary rights of marriage.
No more alcohol, no more womanizing and no more mingling with wrong friends. Our God is a great and loving God. Alleluia Jesus has cleansed me with His blood. Praised be to God.”
#3: Be filled with the Spirit daily
You must not remain a fleshly, carnal believer. Learn to crucify your flesh. Walk in the spirit. A few tell-tale signs of carnal Christians are that they get angry very easily, cannot control their appetite for food or sex, always compare themselves to others, tell small white lies, gossip and complain about everyone, etc.
This is a good example of walking in the spirit.
A Lesson in Forgiveness
“In 2005 I was 25 years old and was not born again so I was in a relationship with a man and I fell pregnant and I felt I didn’t want to keep this pregnancy because I was not ready for a child.
So I resorted to committing abortion. I told no one about the pregnancy and abortion even the father of the baby knew nothing until we broke up it was my secret. As the years went by I got born again and by God’s special grace I got to know of Elisha Goodman and Firesprings Ministries.
Believe me saints I always wondered why my life was an uphill battle I mean sickness and diseases that defy science. I’m xxxxx officer in my country but there was nothing to write home about.
I lost my car mysteriously and I was reduced to a poor woman, despite prayers and fastings in this forum and confession. This went on for (11) eleven full years until last year 2020 days before the Golden Journey Express program.
The Holy Spirit whispered to me to call the man and confess to him all that I have done regarding abortion. I was afraid at first but I finally called him and told him everything and the man forgave me.
Eagles of God, the Holy Spirit is so excellent and he knows more than we could ever imagine.
Immediately after that I got healed and shortlisted for big positions at work. Now I’m an Assistant Director and financially I’m ok.
‘He who covers his sin will not prosper but whoever confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy’
Thank you, Lord Jesus Christ, for giving me another chance in life.”
#4: Get addicted … to the Word of God, your Bible, that is.
Read it out loud as much as possible. Meditate on Scripture and let your actions and decisions be directed by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
Now, before we go to the prayers…
Let me assure you that the LORD God who inspired this message is looking at you right now.
He is the God that does wonders… and declares His strength among His people – Ps. 77:14
He is watching closely to see if you’ll take what you’ve just read here seriously enough to the point of putting it to practice.
Come now, and let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land: But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it. – Isa 1:18-20
If you are new to this kind of teaching...
I must alert you that if you follow these simple steps above with all sincerity ...
... before even firing the opening shots, you may not be able to handle the flood of peace and joy that will invade your heart ...
... not to mention the testimonies that are sure to follow.
Our goal is to record 1 million testimonies this year to the glory of God… your testimonies will be among those shared here in Jesus name.
Every year by this time I challenge those who are prepared to go through these simple steps diligently to get ready for an overflow of breakthroughs in their lives.
They are never disappointed.
Praise the LORD who delights in answering the prayers of His people.

The Proper Way to Break a long Fast
(Suggestion only - not medical advice!)
You should not eat heavy meals at least 2 days before a long Fast.
Rather you should take MORE fruits and drink a lot of water.
When you break your Fast, you should never break with solid food.
You must break slowly. Do not take any cold water or drinks.
Warm water is preferable. Eat fruits such as oranges, pineapples, etc. for a while ...
... and drink a lot of water before attempting to eat any solid food.
When you have been on a long Fast, you will need some days to slowly break.
For instance, if you fasted for 7 days, you'll need another 3 days to slowly break.
- meaning in the following 3 days you should be on a diet of fruits and water, before introducing any heavy food.
This is because the end of a long Fast is the most delicate time of a Fast.
For those who did not conquer their appetite during the Fast, there is a danger that they might overeat right after the Fast, thereby causing severe problems for themselves.
In the event of that happening, quickly stop eating and begin another Fast without food and water for at least 2 days and see your doctor as well.
Let me repeat this:
Please NOTE that this is not a medical prescription.
Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking any action that could affect your health.
What I have just said here should NOT be taken as medical advice.
(Again, please check with your doctor about fasting...
please do Not ask us as we are no physicians):
Now to the prayers...
All the prayers should be prayed AT THE MIDNIGHT HOUR.
You should also find time during the day to continue with the prayers.
If, however, because of your work schedule, you are not able to pray at the midnight hour...
... then you should pray VERY early in the morning before 6:00 AM.
No excuses please.
If you do this diligently, you will surely experience the visitation of the LORD, the One who ordained this program.
For reasons of space and time, we can only pray a tiny fraction of these prayers here.
But right after the 17-day prayers at the gate of 2022, we will continue (without any break) with the follow-up programs I've mentioned already.
Please NOTE the following:
- Eagles in the current Prayer Academy
