SJM Intercessory Prayer Ministry Launch

How many of you know that God's will for our lives is not automatic. So many people think God can do anything. While it is true that all things are possible with God. We must realize that we have a part to play and that what we do will ultimately determine if it's possible of not. What you may ask? God is in control of everything. Well actually he's not. He delegated control of the earth to men.

When God said, "let them have dominion" in Genesis 1:26-27, he handed over stewardship of the earth to mankind. By the words "let them," God limited His right to legally influence and interfere in the affairs of the earth. This is true because of the extent of God's integrity and commitment to keep His word. God is not limited in what he controls because of a lack of power or sovereignty, but because He chose to limit Himself.

Why is this important? Well, if we don't understand this truth, then we will think that God is in control of whether of not His will comes to pass in our lives rather than recognizing that it is actually up to us. God's will for our lives will only manifest to the extent that we submit, yield, obey and pray. I could write a book on each of these, but for time sake, let's just focus quickly on prayer.

Prayer is actually the process of giving voice to the will of God. It's finding out the will of God for a given situation and then asking Him to do it. This asking or prayer is actually the very thing that gives God the right to intervene on your or someone else's behalf. So what does this mean?

Very simply. No prayer, no victory.

Which brings me to some very exciting news. Starting in February, Schlyce Jimenez Ministries, is launching a telephone intercessory prayer ministry. The idea is that we will connect over the phone once a week to pray corporately. We'll be praying for Schlyce Jimenez Ministries of course but also cover other important prayer topics each week.

The Lord has given us an awesome vision. (To download the SJM vision presentation click here.) So, if you have a heart to pray and would like to be a part of our weekly calls. Please contact Catherine Toon at ctoon@sjmi.org. Our first call will be on February 12th. Here's the dial in information:

Things are moving...

Since the ministry's start in June of last year, we've been experiencing awesome growth.  48 people went through one of more of our training classes last year, and so far we've already had 32 people attend training in January.  At this rate we'll train over 400 people this year.  Also, praise God, we're growing financially as well.  The ministry continues to operate debt free and in October of last year, the Lord gave us the clear instruction to officially launch the Schlyce Jimenez Ministries partnership program in December.  We did that at an event held at the Old Town Guesthouse, which is a beautiful bed and breakfast, that we want to purchase and convert into a prayer and healing center.  The response so far has been exciting.  We signed up 6 partners in December and are expecting more and more as we continue to get the word out about the vision for the ministry.  Our goal is to have 100 partners in place by the end of the year.  That's only 8 a month which we feel is a very doable goal. 

 

Speaking of goals, here's short list of some of the things we're working on for 2009:

  1. Establish the prayer ministry and intercessory prayer team (to become a part of our weekly prayer calls email Catherine Toon at ctoon@sjmi.org)
  2. Launch Miracle School in Colorado Springs and by DVD (the Colorado Springs school started in January)
  3. Develop a healing prayer network to train and certify people to pray for the sick and then connect them with people who need healing.  (Monthly Healing Boot Camps to train people to pray for the sick began in January)
  4. Purchase the Old Town Guesthouse and convert it into a prayer and healing center
  5. Start "Praying with Power," a weekly TV, radio and web broadcast that shows people through teaching and demonstration how to pray with power.
  6. Publish my first book
  7. Expand the partnership program

 

As you can see we've got some awesome things planned.  So please agree with us in prayer that 2009 is a year to shine and that everything that the Lord has planned for this year will be accomplished!

 

Blessings,

Schlyce

PRAYER FOR PRESIDENT oBAMA...

Father, your word says "supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and for all that are in authority that we may lead a quiet peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior".

So Lord, we lift up our new president, Barack Obama, today as he is inaugurated in Washington DC and pray that You will grant him the wisdom that is necessary to lead this country in the ways of righteousness during the next four years. We pray that the eyes of his understanding would be enlightened, that he would function by revelation, and that your grace would rest upon him mightily each and every day to empower and enable him to make Spirit led decisions.

Father, we decree that he hears the voice of the Good Shepherd and that the voice of a stranger he will not follow. We declare that he is strong and courageous. He will not bow down to the influence of the enemy or the fear of man. He will not be deceived by the schemes, strategies or wiles of the devil.

The heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord, so Lord we declare that you are giving President Obama the desires of Your heart and that He is yielding to your will. Father, we thank you that President Obama is operating in a spirit of unity that flows from heaven and that as a result the country is united. We pray Father that President Obama and his entire administration will operate in the fear of the Lord. We pray Father for dreams, visions and prophetic utterances to be poured upon each of them so that they will clearly know Your will.

Father, we pray that President Obama will run to you as a shield and fortress during times of stress and pressure. We pray that his relationship with you will grow stronger each and every day and that he is strengthened with might in his inner man. Now, in the name of Jesus, Satan we bind you and forbid you to operate against our new President. We take authority over the spirits of deception, blindness and pride. We declare that President Obama is free to exercise sound wisdom and Godly discretion in every matter.

In Jesus Name, AMEN!

2009 - The Year of Worship

At the beginning of every year, I spend time seeking the Lord for His prophetic word regarding the year and this year is no different.  But I must say I am more excited about what I'm hearing than I have ever been.  Everywhere I turn and everything I'm experiencing is pointing to worship!   Here's what I recently received in my prayer time...

2009 is the year of worship.   I am calling you, my Bride.  Come closer to me.  I desire you.  I want to whisper in your ear.  I want to reveal and manifest myself to  you.  I want to show you love.  I am love.  I am your portion.  I am your reward.  I am your inheritance.  Everything you are, everything you need, and everything you desire are in me. 

One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord (IN HIS PRESENCE) all the days of of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple.

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion;  in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me; therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.  - Psalm 26-4-6 (David's Psalm of Confidence)

David understood how to win every battle.  He understood the importance of My presence.  He understood the relationship between worship, my presence and greatness.  He understood that every victory was in Me.   David made spending time in My presence a priority.  David spent time worshipping Me, and therefore, I called him a man after my own heart and made Him great. 

So come Bride.  Come closer.  I want you to experience my kindness and gentleness.  I want you to smell the fragrance of heaven.  I want to show you my glory.  I want you to see your reflection in my face.  I want to shine my goodness on you.  I want you to experience unprecedented favor.  I want to shower you with blessings.  I want to be the most important thing in your life.  I want you to desire me just a fraction of how much I desire you.  I want to be the most real thing to you in the universe. 

I want you to move beyond religion and formulas  into relationship.  I want you to experience oneness.  I want you to experience heaven on earth.  I want to fill you with so much love that you won't be able to stop yourself from smiling and passing it on.    I want to tear down strongholds.  I want to expose the lies of the enemy.  I want to heal your heart.  I want to equip you slay giants.  I want you to know me so well that you will be able to trust me in any and every situation.

In the last days, perilous times shall come.  But for those who have learned to dwell in my presence and worship me, it will be as the days of heaven upon the earth.  Remember, worship brings the atmosphere of heaven on the scene.   

So love and obey me my Bride.  Worship me my Bride.  Set aside time daily to bask in my presence.  The wealth of the wicked will respond.  The gates of hell will open.  The captives will be released.  And heaven will be seen.

Blessings,

Schlyce

happy new year everyone!!!

My gosh, I can't believe that I haven't posted in almost a month.  Bad, bad, bad!!!  December just flew by...  The holidays were especially busy for us this year.  In addition to our regular Christmas activities, we were also planning our Christmas benefit on the 20th, which by the way, was a huge success, and then getting ready to go to California to spend Christmas with Brian's family.  We just got back yesterday (New Year's Eve) and so really today is my first day to actually sit down and catch my breath.  Here's a couple of fun pics from our trip...

                            CIMG0101

 Here's the tree at Brian's parents, there were tons of presents...

We were cracking up at how Brian's parents got us all the "same thing!"

We took Lily to Knott's Berry farm... So much fun!!!

CIMG0271

This is Lily on one of the rides, she looks good as a "trucker" don't you think?

What a year 2008 has been.  God has been so good to us.  As I sit here and reflect today, I'm just amazed at His faithfulness and love.  As we head into 2009, I know it's going to be our best year yet.  That may seem weird to some, given all of the things going on in the world.  But not to me. 

I spent New Year's Eve a little different this year.  After putting Lily to bed and making sure Brian was all settled in, I decided to take some time just to sit quietly before the Lord.  I was reflecting on Jeremiah 29:11.  God has prepared a good year for us.  He's got even greater things for us to accomplish.  He isn't limited by man.  He isn't limited by the economy.  He's only limited by what we believe.

So I'm choosing to believe God for more in 2009.  He's ready, willing and able to do the exceedingly abundantly above...

Check out the Amplified version of Ephesians 4:20:

Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayer, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]

God is not limited.  He's able to do through us superabundantly, far over and above ALL THAT WE DARE TO DREAM!!!

So I don't know about you, but I'm ready to DREAM BIG in 2009 and believe that God meant what he said.

Blessings,

Schlyce
