Call to Pray 2022

Happy New Year! I have a word of encouragement for you and some instructions on how to pray in the new year and operate in the transition we are in.

This is not the prophetic word for the year, but this is the call to pray in 2022.

Many people globally, including churches businesses and government are under a heavy assault of the enemy.

This is part of the process we are going through that will indeed result in a greater blessing and the release of the Lord’s power.

Getting into the Lord’s timing

Last month I heard the Lord say, “Not ahead, not behind but right on time.”

He is putting us into His prophetic timetable for 2022. We need to do some spiritual clean-up work first. The Lord is calling us to press into His healing and invite His presence in.

We need to walk close to Him right now. There are things that we might need to die to in our lives.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die. Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 NIV

I saw a vision of a bridge that led to 2022 and it said Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 on it.

Our transition into 2022, which is a major season change, will involve dying to yourself and possibly to some dreams or things that were for a past season but are no longer applicable for now.

Just as we have seen many people passing and taking their new role in Heaven over the past 2 years, the Ecclesiastes 3 season to die will result in greater life. It is a season to die and a season to be born.

New births from dying

Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. John 12:24 NIV

Jesus gave this prophetic word about Himself. He had to die before new life will come forth. This is not to scare you, but to encourage you with this—out of all the mess, the Lord is going to bless!

Watch for new things to birth in the spiritual realm, starting this month and over the next few. New ideas, songs, inventions, financial strategies and opportunities will spring forth.

Overcoming power

The Lord is going to give you keys to overcome things that have overcome you in the past.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV

What might not make sense now will come together later for you. Trust the Lord and “lean not on your own understanding.” This is a powerful word for you right now.

The enemy has worked overtime to try to bring you down, discourage you and possibly get you into sin or things that are not good for you. The Lord is working this out and the key is to stay connected with God, no matter what.

Don’t give up or give in. If you are struggling, simply ask forgiveness daily and ask the Lord for the power to overcome.

We are going to look back later and see that this attack is greater than you might realize. The Lord is going to repay you for the years the locust has eaten; He is going to turn your mourning into joy!

Stay connected with Him and if you have drifted come back right now.

New strength for the weary

But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 NKJV

Get ready for the Lord to renew your strength. He is now releasing a shot of encouragement. Just cry out to Him right now for this. I have been getting hit with joy in the midst of the storm!

Step into the river of joy and let the Lord wash over you and renew your strength.

Urgent prayer request

Now, I want to share with you my request for prayer—me, my family and ministry have been under attack.

Ever since the Lord released two major spiritual promotions at Yom Kippur—one of which is to operate at a greater level, as a prophet to the nations—Satan has unleashed a worldwide attack against me. This has been ongoing since last September.

I have used this attack as an opportunity to shore up things in my life. I have gone through some deliverance and healing prayers. I have closed doors to the past the best I could.

I want to raise up prayer for myself, my wife Linda and the InLight Connection team. Also, my family as we have gone through hit after hit.

In the midst of it all, the Lord is blessing me with a greater anointing and perseverance than I have ever had in my life. I am as close to my wife as I have ever been and I am close to the Lord.

I would like to raise up prayer over my promotion and the retaliation and assaults I have been under.

Agree together

Let’s agree together in prayer! As we ask this, I am agreeing in prayer that the Lord will give you your breakthrough as well.

P.S.  I will be doing a workshop on Praying with Power: Bringing Heaven to Earth. In this time of transition, it is more important than ever that we learn to pray with power. You can learn more about how to join me for this workshop by clicking here.

    May God bless your ministry. Remind pastors to bind up Satan & every evil force. Many keep repeating a verse that empowers evil, of what the devil comes to do. But we need to continue to release His promises to empower His Word within us. Praying that “He will go before us and make the crooked paths straight & guide us with His eye. ” Our prayers are with you. Thank you.

    Thank you for your call to prayer to fight against the attacks of Satan. What I’ve noticed is that speakers have quoted a verse that seems to release the devil’s attacks, instead of binding up Satan. They quote: Satan comes to r ……k .. & destroy, which seems to be releasing forces instead of binding every evil force. We used to empower with God’s promises, that “He would deliver us out of trouble & go before us & make the crooked paths straight. ” We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, or now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling.” These are the verses that empower & enable us to fight off the devil’s attacks to encourage & equip us for whatever is to come. People want to hear positive to counteract the negative. Knowing prophecy is good, but it helps to be encouraged with how the Lord can help us through the difficulty. We can’t underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit & knowledge of the Bible to empower believers through challenging times.

    Hi Doug!
    I just want to say that your prayer request comes across to me as very humbling and has touched my heart. I know of one friend and minister besides myself who has testified of the very same thing. Satan has hit her hard since Yom Kippur, September in a very hard way. For myself i nearly run a man and woman and their baby in a pram with my car – they were blotted out in momentary darkness in broad daylight as they were crossing the pedestrian crossing! I braked just in time PRAISE GOD! I felt the CHILL of the ENEMY! I know that CHILL!
    Anyway I have struggled as many of us have especially during these extremely dark times globally. My struggle is to overcome long standing issues that stand between myself and our God. And in doing so besides being set free, I can truly begin to LOVE HIM, HONOUR HIM and be used to FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT against the devil to give ALL THE GLORY TO OUR GOD THE FATHER AND SON as THEY DESERVE!
    As for you and your family and your ministry to us I say THANK YOU DOUG!!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR LIFE AND FAITHFULNESS TO OUR GOD!!!THANK YOU!!! I WILL BE PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING FOR YOU!!! I appreciate ALL your words and messages AS UNTO THE LORD!!!
    For 2022 I will be contributing financially to your ministry. I wont even try and figure out if I can afford it PRAISE THE LORD FOR 2022!!!

      Thanks so much for sharing and donating to InLight Connection! We greatly appreciate you and pray blessings over you!

  1. Made me think when you asked for prayer, about Jehu and how he had the Kings anointing to decree and declare a matter. Jezebel wants to intimadate, lie, manipulate, control. So I stand with you and decree breakthrough for you and your family, right now in Jesus name.
