Are you hungry to go deeper with God and see many sudden breakthroughs happening...through your prayer life?
If so, you have got to read this latest article by Lana Vawser. We also posted a second article by Doug Addison today that goes hand-in-hand with Lana's. I encourage you to read both of them.
"Don't be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell Him every detail of your life..." (Philippians 4:6 The Passion Translation)
For the last few months, the Lord has been speaking to me a lot about a season of "unlocking" that is upon the Body of Christ. In this season the Lord is unlocking so many things; especially, a great unlocking of restoration and recompense upon God's people for all the enemy has stolen, attempted to delay, kill or destroy. This is a season where the Lord is saying, "There is SO MUCH MORE available to you. Will you step in?"
"He is inviting you to come, approach Him boldly, and be specific in your prayers, knowing that He is SO good and His plans for you are greater than you have imagined (see Jeremiah 29:11)."
In this great awakening, taking place by the Spirit of God upon the Church, the Lord is waking His people up to who they are in Christ, His nature, and their inheritance in Christ in deeper ways than ever before.
Don't Be Hindered Because of Weariness, Battle and Disappointment
The Lord showed me that many have been so used to the battle and weariness that it has majorly hindered their prayer life. It has hindered their level of expectation and faith of what the Lord can and will do. Because of the level of hardship and battle that many have faced, the Lord showed me they have become too scared or weary in asking. Many have been stuck in the place of "not understanding" the things that have taken place in the past or things which are taking place, but I felt the compassion and love of God.
God wants to minister to hearts and set people free from the place of hope deferred and move us into a place of bold faith and revelation of His goodness and kindness, even in the place of mystery and not understanding. The Lord showed me that the "whys" (why did that happen? Why didn't that happen?) have held SO MANY captive. But the Lord is bringing significant healing, breakthrough and freedom.
The Lord showed me a shift that is taking place. It's a shift in the spirit – a momentum of breakthrough – but it is also a re-igniting of prayer and faith. There is an igniting taking place by the Spirit of God in this season to go back to the place of deep conviction of "taking the Lord at His Word" and seeing sudden manifestations.
Be Specific in Your Prayers
The Lord showed me that He is restoring hope. He is restoring faith. He is increasing faith in the demonstration of the power of the Word of God. Where many have felt like they have been "asking and asking" and it has felt like a "drought" without breakthrough, the Lord is inviting His people to come and rest in the living, flowing waters of His Spirit – the rivers of His Spirit – to be washed in the Word again, and to BE SPECIFIC.
The enemy has worked hard against many Believers to make them deeply weary. He's done it by bringing such discouragement, such intense battles, and such distraction to God's people, that the places of prayer have become hindered. The places of prayer have become a place of finding it harder to push through because of the weariness of the battle.
I felt the Lord wanted me write this word and decree it over you today: "THIS CHANGES TODAY!"
It's Time for a SHIFT
The Lord is decreeing a shift over you. The Lord is decreeing a refreshing over you. The Lord is decreeing that there is a seasonal shift taking place over your prayer life TODAY. You shall feel the fire of conviction of the power of the Word of God rising again, and you shall move deeper into a place of seeing great breakthrough and manifestation of His promises in your life.
The enemy has been working hard against many of God's people, whispering his lies of, "Get used to delay. There's no point being specific in your prayers because you won't get breakthrough. You will just be disappointed again." These are LIES. The reason the enemy has come hard against you in these areas is because you are in your season of GREAT UNLOCKING. You are in a season where God wants to demonstrate His power to unlock, release and bring great recompense to you. The Lord wants to release divine wisdom to you while you are being led by His Spirit to be specific in your prayers and see SUDDEN BREAKTHROUGHS. (Photo via Free Great Picture)
I believe that the Lord is training, preparing and maturing the Body of Christ right now. He's bringing us to the place where we see what He is saying and what is on His heart with such clarity and accuracy that we pray from that place of deep insight and specificity in our prayers. We will access a place in the spirit with Jesus where it is decreed, and then it SUDDENLY manifests. It is a deeper place of conviction of "taking the Lord at His Word" and what He is saying, and breathing upon and echoing it.
There is a battle right now over your prayer life to keep you from the place of specificity. So I encourage you to: go into your prayer closet, your secret place with the Lord, and listen again to what is on His heart and BE SPECIFIC in your prayers. Don't allow the battle, the weariness, discouragement or past experience to keep you in a place of "general prayers" because of hope deferred, distraction, weariness or despair.
This IS a Season of Great Unlocking
KNOW that there is a season upon you right now of great unlocking. Jesus wants to bring about greater breakthrough, momentum, freedom, birthing and increase into your life. He is inviting you to come, approach Him boldly, and be specific in your prayers, knowing that He is SO good and His plans for you are greater than you have imagined (see Jeremiah 29:11). Don't believe the lie that the season hasn't changed. Don't believe the lie that you have to get used to delay, or get used to the place of deep weariness. The opposite is true!
"There is an igniting taking place by the Spirit of God in this season to go back to the place of deep conviction of 'taking the Lord at His Word' and seeing sudden manifestations."
I heard the Lord decreeing over you: You are moving into a greater place of radical, bold faith. You are moving into a greater place of hearing the whispers of His heart with greater clarity and accuracy, and seeing the divine strategy of the Lord to be even more specific in your prayers to see significant breakthrough.
You are moving into a land that is fruitful, and it is restful in His presence. It's the deeper place of Psalm 23, and feasting at His banqueting table in the presence of your enemies.
Fire of God Will Fall on Your Prayer Life
You are moving into the place where the fire of God is FALLING on your prayer life. There is a great revival, outpouring, awakening, and increase over your prayer life. I heard the Lord decreeing that the hunger for prayer is increasing significantly. I saw many of you moving into a season of HOURS and HOURS more than you have ever spent in prayer and time with Jesus. Your prayer life is about to come alive in a way you have NEVER experienced.
Your heart is being increased to believe again, to dream again, to take the Lord at His Word, and to see POWERFUL demonstrations of signs, wonders and miracles as you pray. I heard the Lord say, "The day of seeing a MOMENTUM of transformational suddenlies in your prayer life is upon you."
The landscape has changed! No longer barren, but fruitful! Your eyes are being opened by the Spirit of God in greater ways to the revelation of what happens and takes place in the Spirit when you pray. Your eyes are being opened by the Spirit of God to SEE in the spirit the angelic hosts and activity that takes place when you pray specifically and boldly what the Lord is speaking and releasing which will take your faith to a whole other level.
You Will See So Much More in Your Dreams
The Lord showed me that through dreams, He is beginning to show His people the power of prayer and what happens when you pray, and pray according to His Word and what is on His heart – SPECIFICS! The Lord showed me that the revelation of how much more is available to His people in Christ has begun and it will continue to rapidly increase. There is a divine invitation to ACCESS MORE.

He is taking His people deeper into the revelation of Isaiah 55:11: "So will My Word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it."
There is a great unlocking upon you! There is a great invitation upon you from the Lord. Be specific in your prayers. Your prayer life is about to radically change. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
