Prophetic Word: Urgent Call to Pray in October!

Heads Up to Pray

I wrote the following prophetic word last week before the President and First Lady contracted the coronavirus.

As you will read in this prophetic word, I had a heads up from the Lord and prior to any of this happening, I heard the Lord say on Yom Kippur, September 28, to raise up an army to pray for what is coming in October.

Four days later COVID-19 hit the White House.

Lord, we pray for President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and the entire White House staff. We ask for divine healing and full recovery.

Prophetic Word for October

“Arise, cry out in the night, at the beginning of the watches; pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord.” Lamentations 2:19 NKJV

There is an urgent need for us all to rise up and pray from now through the end of the year. Particularly October and November is an important time to call out to the Lord to heal our land.

Whether you are an intercessor or not, the Lord is calling you to pray in any way you can. This is not to avoid a disaster or something bad coming. It is specifically to change the negative spirit that has been released in 2020 by the enemy.

We need to pray that the Lord will rise up against the attacks we are seeing that are keeping us from getting together. It is also negatively affecting the economy and draining critical resources.

3-cord attack of fear, sickness and violence

There is a 3-cord attack operating through the demonic spirits of fear, sickness and violence.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV

The spirit of fear is ruling in the hearts of people. This is not an emotional condition. It is a demonic attack to try to keep us from moving in God’s love and power to make sound decisions.

We also have sickness and death hitting the world through the pandemic.

And in the midst of it, there has been a release of violence in the streets. This is not from a group or leaders. It is driven by a higher-level demonic force that is influencing people.

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper.” Isaiah 54:17 NKJV

The Lord is now releasing plans from Heaven on how we can stop these attacks against us.

Moving from protest to praise

God is calling people everywhere to unite in prayer. There is a critical need to change the atmosphere from protest to praise.

Although many of the protests happening today might be for worthy causes, the Lord is calling us to change things in the spiritual realm. We need to break off the spirits of violence and fear and release a new sound that will change the streets.

The violence and craziness we are seeing are not coming from people but is being driven by demonic forces. It is important to understand that this is not the fault of people or groups.

It is important to not get angry with those you do not agree with!

Agree with this decree

Bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure. Psalm 7:9 NIV

Lord, we ask that you intervene with the unrest in our streets. We decree Psalm 7:9 and ask that you put an end to the violence and set us free! We bind the spirits of fear, sickness and violence and break the 3-cord attack against us, in Jesus’ Name.

Raising up the watchers

I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint. Habakkuk 2:1 NIV

I get up every day around 5:00 a.m., and I stand at my watch to pray. This means that I lay everything down in my own heart and get the heart and mind of the Lord on what to pray for each day.

God is raising up people with the watchmen style of prayer.

“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.” Ezekiel 3:17 NIV

How to shift the atmosphere

The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:7–8 NIV

We need to release the opposite spirit to change things.

Instead of fear, we need to declare and realize faith and trust in the Lord.

Instead of sickness, we need to declare total healing.

Instead of violence, we need to step away from arguments and disagreements and release peace, peace, peace to the streets.

Praise is the key

About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose.
Acts 16:25–26 NIV

We need to start in our own hearts and ask the Lord if there is anything that needs changed. Staying in an attitude of gratitude will help.

When you find yourself wanting to complain or get angry, then change that to blessing and thanking God.

Consider singing and worshiping the Lord everywhere you go. Gather safely for outside worship and singing. (This does not need to be organized.) Take prayer and praise walks in your neighborhood or in the city.

As we pray and lift up the Name of the Lord, we will see things shake open!

    The Corona Virus is just one of the many trials that we will overcome. This issue in US goes all the way back to Noah. The root to the Corona Virus is alcohol. Just think about all the murder in the land right now. All the abortion, death by suicide, disease…and yes the root is alcohol. Where does alcohol come in? When Noah drank wine he used poor judgment and cursed his family line (Gen.9:18-27). This is also where slavery came in. When we become angry we cannot hear God and God will not hear us unless we are humble and contrite.

    Noah was not a violent man because he found Grace. So the assignment of the enemy became, What can be done to Noah to get him to become angry? When Noah became uncovered in his tent, this actually means that Ham had sex with his father’s wife which for many reasons should not have been done (Lev.18:7-16; 1Cor.5) because from these the whole earth was populated (Gen.9:19). This incestuous act bore Canaan (Gen.9:18,22). When Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, he bragged about his sexual act to his brothers (Gen.9:22). When Noah awoke from his wine he cursed Ham’s son, Canaan, in the womb (Gen.9:24-27).

    So what needs to be done is to uproot the curse of Canaan. The root of that curse is alcohol. That which my Heavenly father has not planted shall be rooted up (Matt.15:13). In Jesus Strong Name I declare it done and every plan of the enemy sent to the pit (Jude 6). Amen.

    🔥Her hair is blonde, so she is enlightened and knows that her covering is dark. This is making her sick with a covering of infirmity. She has not lost hope as her strength to stay afloat is the “water of the Word.” (Eph.5:26,27) She maintains that contact with her left hand of Intimacy through the Dreams and Encounters that she has with her Lord Jesus. She won’t let go of Him! She knows that her Savior will never leave her nor forsake her. She is waiting until she is clothed upon from on High. She is expecting Him. “This is Jehovah, or Elijah, if you can receive it.” (Matt.11:10-14) This white blanket is for healing Power from the Comforter; Jehovah Ishi, her True Husband. Her Intercession will be to prepare the way of the Lord. That Mantel will be able to split the waters for her to walk on dry land and Live in Holy Habitation. She represents the True believers that will come into their Promised Land.
    🔥 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Blow the trumpet in Zion, Consecrate a fast,
    Call a sacred assembly. Each time you do this it proves to Me that you want Me to come to you and that you desire Me above the world. And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit. In this manner, therefore, Pray, “Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever. Amen.”
    🌊“Deep has called unto deep at the noise of My waterfalls. All My waves and billows go over you to know Wisdom and Instruction, to perceive the Words of understanding, to receive the Instruction of Wisdom, Justice, Judgment, and Equity. Wait in My Presence until My Spirit is poured upon you from on High. For I will pour Water on him who is thirsty, and Floods on the dry ground. I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, and My blessing on your offspring. I will not hide My face from you anymore; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the House of Israel, says the Lord God. Heaven and Earth become One in this your Beulah Land, says Jehovah Ishi, your Husbandman.”
    🔥“Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your habitations; Do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited. HEY! This Is The Time to tabernacle in the LORD’S Presence. During this time of Divine Grace and Mercy, come out from among them and be separate. Now is the time to repent and return to the LORD. Focus on the Father. Jew and Gentile are coming together as the One New Man. You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem! Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them for the LORD is with you. Again, I say repent from trusting the things of the world. There will be storms as we transition. Come, cross over with Me to the other side. Rest in My Presence. Transformation is upon you. Call out to Me and I will answer you and show you Great and Mighty things that you know not says The LORD your Ruach Adonai Adonai; Your Boss and Redeemer; Your Face to Face Commissioner.”
    🔥In this the 12th hour we will be Prophesying in One accord the Plan of God. 12 = Perfect Government. All others have failed and have fallen. This cord is the remnant; the true worshipers of God in spirit and in truth. “Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” 1Cor.1:10 NKJV


    🔥Jesus declared the Plan of GOD before He stepped into it.

    🔥Jesus Predicts His Death and Resurrection
    Matt.16:21-28 NKJV:
    “From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

    Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!”

    But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

    🔥Take Up The Cross And Follow Him ✝️
    Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.

    “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.

    “For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

    “For the Son of Man will come in the glory of of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.

    “Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom.”

    🔥Job 22:28 NKJV: “You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; so light will shine on your ways.”

    My people, it is up to you to be informed, to know the truth and to pray accordingly. Go deeper and discover the evil among you. In your cities and underneath your great cities. I must see you reform your lives and pray for the overturn of evil and the victory of what is right and good. Then I can raise My mighty arm and strike the enemy, overturning the death and destruction he has decreed for you, which is looming on the horizon. My blessing is upon you, My people, to arise, arise, arise ! Take up the truth and fight for it. I AM with you !

    As a prophetic intercessor who has been overwhelmed with day to day life and then the pandemic I recognize it’s FEAR based and geared to do exactly to me what I have allowed it to do. Lord I repent. Help me stand in the gap and give you all the praise and glory for all the wonderful things you are doing and about to do. I am reminded, If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear and I will heal their land…
