A few months ago, a friend of mine shared a short warfare prayer. Every day since then, on my walk-n-pray, I open my phone to the link and read/pray it out loud inserting my name, my husband’s name, children grandchildren, SUM ministries, Centerpoint ministries (my home church) and all my prayer ministries, the leadership and those there-under. I read it aloud and adapt it as led by the Holy Spirit. I’ve found just reading it aloud moves my spirit into a higher realm of authority, prayer and then leads me to pray further about issues in my life that need prayer covering. Continue reading

I messed up! I slipped up…. AGAIN…. I continue to be disappointed in myself because I have this sin, this ugly thing, that I battle on and off.I wonder, Is God mad at me? Is God disappointed with me? I want God to be pleased with me, perhaps he will bless me more if I can just get this right. If I can just do more good and stop this ugly thing. Can anyone relate? Continue reading

This is the painting I'm speaking about in the video Hello my dear friends, I have had a heavy heart for all of you who are in the throes of battle right now. So, today, I’m not going to talk about marriage killers. NO! I want to talk about the marriage saver. Jesus Christ. I’ve been in a deep reflection upon my life in the past few weeks. It’s as though Jesus is pouring revelation upon me about the many seasons of my marriage. Pointing to how He used my very own wrong choices to work with. How inside my rebellion, He loved me, taught me, and led me into peace. I’m on a wonderful journey right now with the Savior. And the tension of what waits around the corner of the unknown, is almost palatable to my spirit. It’s BIG… REALLY, REALLY BIG! With that said, I’m not going... Continue reading

.....looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame. While Jesus carried His cross, THIS MOMENT was on His mind.... This moment in time when His bride gathers together in unity! Astounding! Continue reading

Marriage Killers. How do we slay them?Today, I want to talk about …The in-laws. Every marriage brings with it an extended family. My experience with in-laws was a good one. They weren’t intrusive. At the time I married Mike, he had lived on his own for years. He had a health relationship with his parents, and they lived in another state. Their involvement in our lives centered about holiday visits and trips to visit their place in the summer. And on occasion, a trip to the Santa Cruz where his parents and their friends and family would vacation every year.Marriages struggle when either spouse fails to become fully liberated from their parents. Continue reading

What is the Wicked Marriage Killer?Many years ago, my mother-in-law looked at my father-in-law and quoted me to him, “Just deal with it, Caitie.” I bet my mouth hung open. It became obvious that Carole, was teasing and poking back at her dear husband with words I’d said to my then, hmmmm I guess ten-year-old daughter. Continue reading

Thursday, January 10, 2019 There is grace. If you didn’t quite make it, there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. So, start again and finish strong. And for the many who have continued steadfast, press in because this is a breakthrough day for everyone! Pray: I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. —Ephesians 3:16-19 Today is “revival day” and “divine reversal day.” In the...

Wednesday, January 9, 2019 Mid-week, and this is when fasting becomes difficult. What I want to tell you is that when you reach Friday and you remained in the fast, you will feel such a surge of accomplishment and pride in your perseverance. And the flip-side, you will be disappointed you didn’t make yourself finish strong because our next fast isn’t until September. White-knuckle your determination. And gang, I’m saying this to me specifically. I’m staying focused on the juicy hamburger I’m going to eat on Friday at sunset. *grin* Pray this: I know that you will welcome me into your house, for I am covered by your covenant of mercy and love. So I come to your sanctuary with deepest awe to bow in worship and adore you. Yahweh, lead me in the pathways of your pleasure just like you promised me you would, or else my enemies will...

Tuesday, January 8, 2019 SUMites, did you wake with a hunger in your tummy? Let that hunger remind you to hunger and thirst after His righteousness. FOR THEY SHALL BE FILLED! Today’s prayer prompt: My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. —Proverbs 2:1-5 Answer this question in the comments today: Jesus, how are you using my marriage to increase my understanding and knowledge of the Father? See you in the comment. March on Warriors!! See you at the Summit! Love and hugs, Lynn Continue reading

Prayer time challenge for this week. 1. Don’t touch or look at your cell phone in the morning prior to your prayer time. I believe this is directly from the Lord. Your early morning prayer is vital during this fast. Reading your phone before prayer will completely suck you into the cares of the world. It is difficult to leave the world once it gets going in your head. So, pray first. (first fruits) for an hour. Then read your phone. 2. Ask Jesus questions. Example: Jesus what do you want me to learn this year? Jesus, what are you teaching me right now? Jesus, what fruit of the Spirit to you want to develop in my life this year? Jesus, reveal more of yourself to me. Father, reveal your heart to me. Father, what are you doing today? Father, who can I love today with the love you give... Continue reading

You are detoxing your body, mind, and spirit. *Prepare by informing your family.

SUM Nation 2019 is marching forward. And we, the Body of Christ, have tremendous assignments and moves of God in which we will participate. In December I received a great deal of revelation from the Lord about 2019 and 2020. I will likely share what Jesus told me after our fast. But today, I want to encourage you to plan to fast. The Community fast begins at sunrise, January 7th and end at sundown, January 11th. If at all possible, plan to fast from solid food for five days. Fasting from food is our Biblical model and Jesus modeled fasting. This next passage is our calling: 25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!” 26 Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and...

SUMites, I hope your Christmas was peaceful, filled with wonder and much love and laughter. I'm spending time with family this week, so I won't post again until after New Year's Day. But, I'm asking you to start to ask the Lord to help you fast the first full week of January. Our annual fasts are powerful. I receive so many reports of tremendous breakthrough. There are many ways to fast but a complete food fast is what we are aiming to achieve. Fasting from food breaks so many strongholds, it is also tremendously healthy to give your digestive system a break. Below are links about fasting. Determine to fast something. Then share your week with your brothers and sisters around the world who are fasting in the pursuit of God for 2019. I love you.

There was once a man who didn't believe in God, and he didn't hesitate to let others know how he felt about religion and religious holidays, like Christmas. His wife, however, did believe, and she raised their children to also have faith in God and Jesus, despite his disparaging comments. One snowy Christmas Eve, his wife was taking their children to a Christmas Eve service in the farm community in which they lived. She asked him to come, but he refused. "That story is nonsense!" he said. "Why would God lower Himself to come to Earth as a man? That's ridiculous!" So she and the children left, and he stayed home. A while later, the winds grew stronger and the snow turned into a blizzard. As the man looked out the window, all he saw was a blinding snowstorm. He sat down to relax before the fire for the evening.... Continue reading

From my prayer time this Christmas: December 2018 From the Father: In the quiet before the early light of Christmas traditions, My child, rise and sit alone with Me. Press into My heart and travel with Me through the ages, back to a tiny town in the Judean desert. This village, Bethlehem, shelters a teenaged, soon-to-be mother, struggling in labor throughout the night. Allow your heart to perceive the paddock of bleating sheep and goats, shivering in the cold as they huddle about the tiny family. Feel the course, dry straw where Mary, the mother of God, rests as she pushes through her pain, hour-by-hour. Breathe in the earthy smells of the animals, the feed, the dung, as the couple labor together. The shadows flicker across the beams of the manger, lit by a single candle. Finally, the last cry and she pushes forth the child. The King of Kings,... Continue reading

We are nearing the time and the town of Bethlehem. Last week in the comments Cindy, brought forward an interesting observation. And today as I’m reading the story of Christmas from the first chapter of Luke, my eyes are drawn again and again to the angel Gabriel and his proclamation of the birth of the Messiah given to Mary, a young woman living in Galilee. Cindy pointed out the difference between Zechariah’s questioning of Gabriel in contrast to Mary’s question put to the angel. Zach’s question was a cloak of disbelief and Mary’s???? Well as Cindy shared last week, Mary, was asking out of curiosity about how the conception and birth would come about. This is what I believe we can receive from these two contrasts that are very similar and both prominent in the telling of the birth of the Messiah. It’s all about the heart! My friends, it’s...

I’ve read the Christmas story in the Gospels for years. In fact every January, I begin my Daily Bible with the telling of the birth of Jesus in the book of Matthew. But this year, this beautiful December, I’m reading it with a new hunger and in utter awe. What the Lord is reveling to me is creating a love for this story like I’ve never experience prior to now. It’s peace. It’s wonder. It’s revelation. It’s JESUS!!! Reading the passage in Matthew chapter one, I stopped, transfixed on verse 21. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins. — Matthew 1:21 NIV COME ON!!! My soul stirs just reading the words. Yet, in my NIV Bible, the paper kind, which if you don’t have a paper Bible. Get one. Read from it... Continue reading

Joseph & Jesus I’ve been reading the Christmas story in the Gospels the past two weeks. My time in the Word has been utterly revelatory. Father, God has been speaking to me in His kind voice and uncovering treasures of the Christmas story that I didn’t even know were there. Such was the post from Friday about Zechariah. After having my mind blow up over Zechariah, God led me to read through the first chapter of Matthew. That’s when my eyes were drawn over and over to this heading: Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son On the surface, nothing is noteworthy to most. However, for me. I was drawn over and over to the implications of this heading and then the passage that followed. And that’s because, in my Healing Prayer sessions, over and over again, I pray with believers to restore their voice. So much of human misery is... Continue reading

While reading the Christmas story in the book of Luke on Monday, I pondered Zechariah’s story. The Holy Spirit began to speak to me about Zechariah’s angelic encounter, his response, and the significance and similarity in many believers lives today. Let’s read it together and then I will share the revelation that could very well change the course of your life this very day. Let us recall that Zechariah was the High Priest serving in the Temple, in the Holies of holy. He and his wife Elizabeth were devoted to the Lord, however, they lived in shame as they were childless. Childlessness was considered a curse in ancient Biblical times. In Luke, chapter one, Zechariah received great honor when chosen to burn incense in the Temple. While ministering to God behind the curtain the angel, Gabriel, appeared before him and said, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been... Continue reading
