The Lord Jesus Christ Baptizing the Earth in Holy FireDear friends and family in Christ,

Only 2 days left until ‘Taking the High Places for Jesus’ on October 17th in Canberra and across Australia, an integral part of the prophetic destiny of this Great South Land of the Holy Spirit!

May the Spirit of the Lord continue to supernaturally empower and victoriously lead you through the 21 day fast to cry out to the Lord of the heavens and the earth to heal our land of Australia! (2 Chronicles 7:13-14)

We’re looking forward to seeing you as part of God’s spiritual army on Mount Ainslie in Canberra on the 17th of October at 2pm.

If you can’t make it to Canberra for the spiritual warfare operation on October 17th, remember to contact our office in Melbourne at (03) 9794 8211 or email if you are meeting to pray in your own location so we can connect up those wishing to pray together in their particular region across our nation. Already 20 plus locations, covering every state and territory are joining in the Spirit of prayer in ‘Taking the High Places for Jesus’ across Australia.

If you are unable to get to a high place to pray on Saturday 17th please try your best to gather some people together in your home or church to join thousands of other Christians from across our nation in praying for Australia’s transformation.

For those of you living in the South Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, there will be a praying meeting from 2-5pm at the Fountain Gate Christian Centre, 23 Melverton Drive, Hallam  (Melways Ref: 96 G2)

Make sure to bring an Australian flag as we prophetically stand in the gap for the 22,000,000 plus Aussies for whom the Lord Jesus Christ was crucified and resurrected over 2000 years ago!

    Dear Jason,

    I will not be able to be in Canberra but on that day a group of women are meeting for KYB (Know Your Bible) from the eastside. This is an international, evangelical ministry (CWCI). Could you please advise me if there is a Prayer group meeting in Sydney on that day – 17 October ’09. I was excited when I read your prophecy for Australia as I have only just now read your email.

    Blessings to you all,

    Dear CTFM

    A group from our church will gather here in Brisbane at 1.00pm EST Saturday 17th October. Queensland is not on daylight saving.

    Thankyou Ps Daniel Nalliah for mobilizing the Body of Christ in Australia for such important prayer: and thankyou for your encouraging emails which I enjoy and often send on to other leaders.

    God bless you all ever so richly.

    Hi Pastor Daniel

    I’ve been meaning to tell you of a vision I saw whilst we were praying at Dianne’s house last Tuesday night.

    I saw like a huge net in the shape of a tent (Arabian ones) with 4-5 huge poles and the see through net/tent attached to them. Then I saw the demons coming from the sky and hitting the net but not being able to penetrate it. They looked like flies or mosquitos compared to the net.

    On the ground at Mt Ainsley I saw the whole crowd of us including Ps Daniel and Jesus was standing behind him (huge around 20 feet tall!) directing him in what he was doing. I felt there was such a tangible presence of God there and there was such a LOVE and PEACE there. It became a place of sanctuary (HOLINESS) for the Lord (instead of a place of witchcraft). Hallelujah!

    Kind Regards

    Hi Danny and Catch The Fire Ministries,

    I have written to you before to voice my support of Danny courageously speaking out his prophetic words following the Victorian bushfires, as so many of us up here in Darwin also felt convinced the fires were a result of the diabolical abortion laws passed there.

    Since then I have been following all the news on the Catch the Fire website and feel very connected to you. I was intending in my small capacity to be in deep prayer, with any friends in our Church ( the Catholic Church) who will join me, during your prayer meeting on Mount Ainslie on 17th October. I think it is extremely important for our Nation.

    Because Darwin is very flat, I had been thinking to ask some prayer- partners to join me in one of our “high places” – the top story of our Parliament House, which we can enter on a Saturday as a visitor, as this is the place where many laws which are not of God were passed up here – the law allowing Euthanasia in the NT (subsequently overturned in Canberra in 1997), and more recently, the law decriminalizing abortion, on 11th Oct 2006. If we don’t get to go to Parliament House, we will certainly be united with you in prayer at our “Our Lady Star of the Sea” Cathedral in Darwin where I always attend Mass on Saturday and remain to pray for several hours afterwards before Jesus in The Blessed Sacrament.

    Wherever we are up here, we will certainly be with you in Spirit at 2pm your time (which will only be 12.30pm our time), as we have also received many prophetic words for The Great South Land of The Holy Spirit and believe Australia is on the verge of a mighty revival.

    May God Bless all your efforts and hope many, many people join you in prayer,

    Love in Jesus,

  5. 5 Caryl

    Thank you for your prayers especially the one against witchcraft. I hope all is well with you and your group. After we spoke I thought that it would be high on Satan’s agenda to bring dissension into the fellowship, what better way to de-rail the whole agenda.

    I pray that God’s blessings and protection is with us all, and remember our Emannuel is God with us!

    Be anxious for nothing, Mightier is He who in with us than he who is in the world; He will go before us and be our rear guard.

    Dear Pastor Danny,

    Thankyou for these instructions. I will only share them with the other Prayer Warriors who are going to accompany me on Sat 17th October here in Darwin -(first, from 10.30am in Church for Confession, Mass and prayer and then, at 12.30pm – (2pm Canberra time) -we will adjourn to Parliament House and continue to sing in Praise and Worship and pray in tongues until around 3pm. (Will bring blessed salt and holy oil and anoint Parliament House).

    Will let you know if we receive any prophetic words or visions, and we are very happy to be representing the NT in this prayer for our Nation.

    Thankyou for all that you are doing for our country Danny,

    God Bless you and all at Catch the Fire Ministries,

    ………..about this time every year (Halloween) the witches gather in their covens all over, even in Wangaratta, Yackandandah, etc which is within our region to perform their works of occult against Christians. So several prayer groups and churches in our area get into spiritual warfare and pray against them. Good on Danny Nalliah……….Lots of love, Colleen xx

    So far I have not found any other Christians in Bendigo who are going to be praying on the high places this Saturday. Do you know any Bendigo group that is meeting. Not sure if I just want to go with me, my husband and one friend :-( But I have felt a strong desire to do this since I first read the email of the intent to pray on the high places for this nation.

    Kind regards


  9. 9 Walter

    Just to let you know that we, the Rise Up group at Devonport will have a prayer vigil on Sat. 17th Oct. from 2pm onwards to support the warriors at Mt Ainsley.

    Hello Pastor Danny and Catch the Fire Ministeries,

    Peace, Peace I give to you, not as the world gives it, give I it to you.

    This is an inviation as He spoke to me for you, to be invited into Heaven’s Witness and their protection before you go on Saturday, for this Saturday is also a day that the occult also celebrate and have their rituals and celebrations.

    But also a day that the mockers and scoffers will also be dealt with along with the proud and rejecting ones.

    Lord Jesus Christ speaks u can not do anything without Him, and the need for abiding in the vine is going to be needed before Saturday and that need is great. Nor can earth’s christianity and witness do nothing without Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven. You are proclaiming His Kingdom, and His Kingdom witness but on more than one occasion you have rejected His sent witness and ignore them.

    So the one’s that have been ignored by you etc….were the one’s that handed over the Kingdom gauntlet to you, and we can see where you have picked that up.

    This is Heaven’s Song and what her witness is singing to her husband:

    Heaven’s Song

    Let us be true to You,
    In all that we do for you.
    May all our works be Yours
    that we reside in Heaven’s hour

    Lord Jesus Christ’s trusted light
    Shining Glory through the night.
    Rising up in heaven’s Day,
    In Sweet Release her song of peace.

    Let her sing her song,
    Flowing through your precious throne,
    Reconciling hearts as one,
    That we may Love Heaven’s Song.

    Your Pure and Undefiled Love
    Joining with Your Perfect Dove
    Releasing Hearts, minds and souls,
    In Perfect Peace, Heaven’s mighty song.

    The children without their mother and not in their mother and Lord Jesus Christ’s wife will fight amongst themselves, and not be a good witness of being in One and One in Lord Jesus Christ amen, John 17.

    When people other than the ones that had authority to do spiritual warfare tried to do it, they were tended to and it was said Jesus and Paul we know, who are you….

    U Need the oneness and one in Christ….

  16. 16 Ian

    Greetings to all at Catch the Fire Ministries,

    As a group of men from the churches in the Lockyer Valley of South East Queensland, we gather each month for breakfast and to pray for the needs of our community and nation. We often have our local council mayor drop in to share with us issues we can pray for.

    As we are gathering this Saturday, we will take some time again to particularly pray for our nation, to pray against the strongholds and to pray for a healing of the land as we submit in humble obedience to our Lord. (Our farming community has suffered from recent dust storms and extremely dry weather in our area – which is conditions for extreme fire danger at present.)

    Thank you for the information that comes through regarding prayer gatherings. I realise time is now short, but If there are any further specific prayer requests you would like to email through before Saturday, please feel free to do so.

    Yours in Christ

    And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. (Revelation 12:11)

    Dear brothers and sisters, peace and grace to you be multiplied from God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!

    The reason I am sending you this letter is to encourage and under-gird the need of the imminent prayer assignment (offensive) to reclaim Australia in Canberra and through out the land for Jesus Christ (for our children’s inheritance sake, the destiny of this country and the global plan of God).

    In the Universal Court of Heaven, God is the Judge of all (Hebrews 12:23). Jesus the Just is our defending attorney or Advocate (1 John 2:1). We have a prosecuting attorney, Satan ‘the accuser of the brethren’ (Revelations 12:10). But according to Revelations 12:11, the accused (us) overcame the accuser by the BLOOD OF THE LAMB! In the Universal Court of Heaven the Blood of Jesus is our WITNESS! And the job of a witness on trial is to speak! Now it tells us in Hebrews 12:24 that the Blood of Jesus Speaks. …

    When Jesus sprinkled His Precious Blood on Heavens Mercy Seat, all of the charges against you have been dropped! You have been made a partaker of God’s Divine Nature and great Inheritance (2 Peter 1:4, Colossians 1:12). So every time the accuser comes to dispute your Inheritance or to speak you out of any part of it. What are you going to plead? I know what I am going to plead! I PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS!

    The Blood of Jesus is your Victory! You overcome him not with tenacity or your intellect but with the Blood of Jesus! By the Blood you have been Justified! Redeemed! You have Shalom! Eternal Life! You are Forgiven! Free! You are made God’s Property! You have Protection! Power Of Attorney to all of God’s Authority! You have Safety! Deliverance! Healing! Prosperity! Every Blood Covenant Promise becomes a Reality because of the Blood of Jesus!
    (Taken from: I PLEAD THE BLOOD – By Shandrey Thumbran, 2009)

    These words declared by brother Thumbran were the very essence of the upbringing of both my wife and I by our parents, who were passionate with all their being for the Kingdom of God and their Saviour. (Some chronology for understanding of later text: My wife is the youngest of 7 children and her father was the first one of his immediate family to come to Christ in his teens. All were born in Belarus, republic of the former Soviet Union and part of the persecuted church there. I am the youngest of 13 children, born to my father, who also found Christ in his teens (born 1893). All born in Australia. We have 5 children of our own, ages raging from 11 to 22).

    This plea of the blood of Jesus Christ is what preserved my father-in-law as he stood before a firing squad in Europe and the bullets did not harm him, later tortured and thrown into prison. And this same plea that preserved my father here in Australia from the attempt(s) to take the life of my father by his persecutors. One time in particular, where his service of the great King was denting Satan’s plans too much, and God took the life of the head warlock of the coven that plotted to bury my father alive.

    This same plea of the blood of Jesus Christ is what has preserved us and will preserve us, as we take back and HOLD this land of Australia for the Kingdom of God (this includes taking the high places). As we approach the work of the cross, some aspects of the old covenant stop at the cross, some pass trough modified and others pass through unchanged. Taking back of the high places and the land, I believe is one of the unchanged and/or continuing requirements in the new covenant. We are instructed in the Word of God to leave an inheritance for our children, and in the new covenant this principally is a spiritual inheritance. We must maintain a stance of love, righteousness, holiness, humility, truth, integrity, faith, grace, mercy and the fear of the Lord, all in the empowerment of the Holy Spirit and obedience to the whole of God’s Word. For this is our inheritance and the legacy we leave.

    We must be armed warriors of the King, for He has potentially made His work vulnerable by including us as His co-workers in His plan. As I think about this time and ask the Lord for direction, my thoughts go back to my very young years, when my mother and I travelled with my father around South-East Queensland, as he preached and taught this Word of God, seeing many set free and delivered through the blood of Jesus Christ. I also saw some who had the grip of witchcraft and others Freemasonry over their lives just didn’t get it (understanding). I was left bewildered as to why they didn’t get it, for my father explained it well. The Lord later as I grew up brought me to understanding as to why, and it is very connected to the activities of servants of our enemy, Satan.

    I recently asked the Lord for a word picture of the state of the church in Australia (this excludes the remnant that existed and exists in all generations, having said this we ALL who have accepted the gift of salvation are part of one body in Jesus Christ) and the image I believe I got that we are as a ‘drunken sailor on extended shore leave, not wanting to return to duty’. I leave you to unpack this, for everyone I have shared this with thus far has added a new dimension to this concept.

    One of the Prayer (reclaiming) assignments the Holy Spirit sent us on was to Mt Tambourine, which is situated just north-west of the Gold Coast and south of Brisbane. After preparation, we travelled to and stayed there 5 days. The intensity of the spiritual warfare was such that I don’t think we’ll ever forget the experience, for the enemy did not want to surrender this ground. The success of this mission was confirmed by an intercessor (former warlock who had been saved and delivered) immediately upon our return. In a vision he saw the stronghold of witchcraft over the western wall of that region crack. If this can be achieved by a couple of people, supported by a few intercessors elsewhere, how much more can be achieved by a contingent of the body of Christ.

    Note: Many things are a mystery. Satan too directs his servants sometimes knowing the ways of God better than us. That is why in their counterfeit they still use blood and life sacrifice. We have found this type of offensive prayer to be more effective if supportive symbolic elements are used. As led by the Holy Spirit the list can vary from prayer assignment to prayer assignment.

    Even though the enemy tries to spoil God’s plan, God has it in hand. Back in the mid-eighties, when the current Parliament House was under construction, I was short-listed for a Senior engineering position to be stationed on site. I was flown from Brisbane to Canberra to be put on site for a couple of days. The Holy Spirit had soon revealed to me the real reason I was brought there. For in those hours I was taken into what is now the highest security areas of the House, where I prayed and pleaded the blood of Jesus all through out.

    A lesson from history, that I believe the Holy Spirit showed me as a warning for today. Prior to Word War II (starting in the late 20’s) there was an occult movement that rose up in Europe and expanded throughout the world. The Lord mobilised His saints to go to battle against this move. It was overthrown in all, but Germany and branches in which became the ‘Axis Forces’ under Hitler. Although World War II was very devastating, just think for a moment what could have been if the earlier satanic move had succeeded to its fullest. I know this is true, for my father was one of those spiritual warriors. Later in my adult life this was confirmed to me when I came across a long video documentary on the rise of the occult behind Hitler, distributed by Time Life. Further, I believe the Lord had also impressed on me that this was just a rehearsal for what was to come.

    The time has come for us to return under the true headship of Jesus Christ as captains unto Him, departing from doing our staff in His name to being available vessels for Him to work at His pleasure through us. Let us all go out with all confidence and reclaim this ‘Southland of the Holy Spirit’ in the power of the blood of Jesus Christ the second Adam. Preceded by application of 2 Chronicles 7:14.

    Now the LORD said to Joshua: “Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; take all the people of war with you, and arise, go up to Ai. See, I have given into your hand the king of Ai, his people, his city, and his land. (Joshua 8:1)

    Your brother in Jesus Christ,

    I feel a strong sense of God in this particular prayer vigil. God has been showing me lately what Satan is doing and it has been difficult to remain at peace in my heart. It has disturbed me – but I feel God’s presence in it – it has motivated me to pray like never before! Currently, right now, more acutely than at any other time in history, Satan is busy influencing world leaders in various nations to kill, steal and destroy on a scale that challenges the imagination. But God laughs (read Psalm 2 and Matthew 24: 9-14) and His people are not to be afraid (of those who can kill the body and do no more). So, buy oil, lift up your heads, stand firm, and rejoice! Our beautiful Saviour Jesus Christ is mounted with His armies and waiting for the signal to come.

    Satan is defeated. If these Luciferian witches have some power to manipulate national and world events – we have MORE POWER. What great promises we have! Only two or more need agree and we can do some serious binding and loosing.

    That is what I intend to do over these next few days through to Sunday. I cannot get to Canberra (unless God decides otherwise) Will you join me? This is not personal prayer – it is praying in The Spirit about God’s desires for His Kingdom. Will you join me at 1:30pm Saturday for an hour? You can just park and stay in your car as we pray across Adelaide, SA, Australia, the World. (Sunday morning too for 1 hour 7-8am).

    If I am correct, God has already been prompting you about praying in harmony with the below vigil in Canberra – I know he has with me. So, may I encourage you to:

    1 try and get to Canberra and join this prayer group
    2 pray (and fast?) at home etc
    3.join me at 1:30pm (2pm in Canberra)
    4.find your own ‘high place’ and join in from there



  20. 20 Debbie

    Dear Danny and team.

    We will meet at 2pm and join in prayer with you all in Canberra.

    Des and Lorraine will be there with you,
    Love Debbie Fi

  21. 21 Pete

    Hi Pastor Danny Nalliah,

    My name is Peta and I am a friend of Jan from Darwin. We have been meeting together for a prayer meeting now for over 7 years. We met on Monday and Wednesday this week and Jan shared with us about the prayer Stratagy for this Saturday. I work as as Teachers Assistant three days a week at a Christian School in Darwin and I have been asking a few people that I know if they too could pray on Saturday. One of the Chaplains here is emailing me a list of the Prayer Warriors at the different Churches here in Darwin . I was wondering if I could email them the Prayer Strategy email dated the 12th Oct 2009 14:30:55 1100.
    I am so proud of what you are all doing. God will bless you all.

    Yours in Christ

    A group are gathering in Ipswich Qld at 1pm to fit in with Daylight saving. They are excited to be involved.

    May God give all groups wisdom and courage to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit

    A scripture from my quiet time yesterday: DO A THOROUGH JOB
    II Kings 13: 14 – 18

    Now Elisha was suffering from the illness from which he died. Jehoash king of Israel went down to see him and wept over him. “My father! My father!” he cried. “The chariots and horsemen of Israel!”

    15 Elisha said, “Get a bow and some arrows,” and he did so. 16 “Take the bow in your hands,” he said to the king of Israel. When he had taken it, Elisha put his hands on the king’s hands. 17 “Open the east window,” he said, and he opened it. “Shoot!” Elisha said, and he shot. “The LORD’s arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Aram!” Elisha declared. “You will completely destroy the Arameans at Aphek.” 18 Then he said, “Take the arrows,” and the king took them. Elisha told him, “Strike the ground.” He struck it three times and stopped. 19 The man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three times.”

  31. 31 Nicole

    Hi Pastor Danny

    Just thought you might be interested to hear about below!
    As you know I attend CityLife Church. CityLife has a suggested bible reading plan that they encourage the whole church to participate in as a church family together, and we are then also encouraged to ask God to speak to us each day about what God’s purpose is for all of us individually, but together in Christ.

    I have just noticed what the suggested bible readings are for tomorrow & sunday – the time that you will be in Canberra on Mt Ainslie (which overlooks Parliament House) praying against witchcraft amongst other things & prayerfully reclaiming Australia for Jesus from the Government down.

    Saturday’s reading is Acts 19:11-16 and Sunday’s reading is Acts 19:17-22 (only quoting up to verse 20 below).

    I was most amused when I picked up my copy of The Message bible & found the above verses with the sub-heading “Witches came out of the woodwork!”
    Below is exact wording of these verses from The Message –

    11-12 God did powerful things through Paul, things quite out of the ordinary. The word got around and people started taking pieces of clothing – handkerchiefs and scarves and the like – that had touched Paul’s skin and then touching the sick with them. The touch did it – they were healed and whole.

    13-16 Some itinerant Jewish exorcists who happened to be in town at the time tried their hand at what they assumed to be Paul’s “game.” They pronounced the name of the Master Jesus over victims of evil spirits, saying, “I command you by the Jesus preached by Paul!” The seven sons of a certain Sceva, a Jewish high priest, were trying to do this on a man when the evil spirit talked back: “I know Jesus and I’ve heard of Paul, but who are you?” Then the possessed man went berserk – jumped the exorcists, beat them up, and tore off their clothes. Naked and bloody, they got away as best they could.

    17-20 It was soon news all over Ephesus among both Jews and Greeks. The realisation spread that God was in and behind this. Curiosity about Paul developed into reverence for the Master Jesus. Many of those who thus believed came out of the closet and made a clean break with their secret sorceries. All kinds of witches and warlocks came out of the woodwork with their books of spells and incantations and made a huge bonfire of them. Someone estimated their worth at fifty thousand silver coins. In such ways it became evident that the Word of the Master was now sovereign and prevailed in Ephesus.

    I ask you, is it just a “coincidence” that these scriptures ‘just happenned’ to be chosen for this weekend? or does the choice have a divine hand on it?!

    Dear Danny and Catch the Fire Ministries,

    This is an account of our amazing prayer gathering in Parliament House, Darwin between 1.00pm and 4.30pm Saturday 17th October 2009 – roughly the same time you all gathered on Mount Ainslie. Someone took photos which we hope to send you.

    It was an afternoon the eleven Prayer Warriors who gathered to praise and worship The Lord in tongues and song will never forget.

    It is lucky a very kind Christian politician up here sponsored us to have a private room on the secure area of the third floor of Parliament House, (which was locked to the general public and no politicians were present, since it was a Saturday), because we were proclaiming the Scriptures and other declarations you sent us and singing and prayinging VERY loudly and we would have been kicked out if we were on the lower floors where the library, art exhibitions, etc, are.

    The “upper room” we were in had a huge window which looked out over Darwin Harbour and due South – we felt as if we were praying over the whole of The Great South Land of The Holy Spirit!!!

    We followed the Prayer Strategy you kindly sent us letter for letter – all 7 pages – as we felt it was very important that we were completely united with the other Prayer Warriors across our nation.

    When we got to the “Untimely bloodshed” and recited the words together:… “sacrifices made of humans”, I suddenly couldn’t go on and started crying and choking very loudly – it was the most horrible feeling and felt as if there was something huge in my throat which wouldn’t come out. I had an image in my mind which was so clear of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, doubled over in the most terrible, terrible pain and anguish because of the sin of abortion, which He knew then was going to reach the diabolical proportions that it has today. It was as if He wanted to vomit having to carry this sin for us out of His mouth but couldn’t.

    I then saw the HUGEST, HUGEST red rock, the colour of the blood red soil in the centre, or heart, of Australia and knew this was the size of this sin which Jesus was having to carry for us – but I started to cry out loud as everyone else was praying in tongues: “It’s too big!!! It’s too big!!! I couldn’t stop crying and others were crying too, and then I saw where this huge rock was – it was sitting right on the Australian continent which I could see from way, way up high. The height of this huge, round, red rock was almost as high as the whole of the Australian continent was wide – I was veiwing Australia from the North looking towards the South and the huge rock was sitting in the middle and slightly towards the Eastern coast of Australia and it looked as if the great weight of this rock was going to sink Australia into the sea – the whole continent was starting to tip into the ocean towards the east. I was afraid Australia was going to sink into oblivion.

    I shared this terrible vision with veryone and they all began to pray loudly in tongues for Australia. Someone urged us to sing “Shine Jesus Shine” for Australia, and afterwards three people witnessed seeing very similar things.

    Denis saw a huge, round, dark- red shape sitting on Australia, almost covering the whole continent, but described it more as a mighty tumour growing on Australia. Then he saw a Hand holding a knife coming from an unseen source and slicing a peice off the tumour, which cut like soft damper, and then another slice and then another until the tumour had completely disappeared.

    Michelle saw the rock starting to crumble when the whole of Australia was almost sinking, and very quickly it just crumbled away to nothing and disappeared.

    I saw big black clouds coming over Australia and a bolt of lightning – a very fierce one – struck the rock and it split in two, and then more bolts of lightening came thick and fast and kept striking the rock until it disintegrated into little peices and disappeared into some low-lying foliage and a carpet of bright flowers of many different colours which covered the whole of the Australian continent, which I hadn’t seen before.

    At this point Michelle opened the Bible at random and received the Scripture: Isaiah 35:1-10. We read this out as felt it was very appropriate for what we had just seen……and then when we got further through the pages you sent we discovered that you had included this exact scripture on page 6!

    The praying in tongues was extremely loud after the final Scripture was proclaimed: Isaiah 60:7 “All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you.” All of a sudden, in the same instant , everyone stopped involuntarily and went completely silent. The silence was impossible to break as we felt completely in awe of a Mighty Presence in the room and one by one people dropped to the floor and lay prostrate with their heads to the ground- it was impossible to remain standing in this Presence – we felt as if we were in the Throne- Room of The King.

    The silence continued for a long, long time and afterwards we found we had all been saying the same things to Jesus, Whom we knew was truly present, in our hearts, as we lay on the floor :- “Thankyou Jesus, Praise You Jesus, we love You Jesus”.

    We all felt that He was Present dressed as our Shepherd King, and Peta saw Him in her spirit as having a Kingly Crown on His Head, a Robe of Royalty around His Shoulders and a Sceptre of Authority in His Hand.

    One of our Prayer Warriors, Denis, received a strong, very clear and distinct word at this time :

    Then I received clearly the words : “TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES, YOU ARE ON HOLY GROUND.” (Everyone did instantly).

    Lynde then heard the words: “WHERE MY SON IS, I AM IN YOUR MIDST.”

    The silence continued and we felt so much awe, love, reverence that we didn’t want the silence to ever end. Then Dennis proclaimed some more words in a very regal voice which didn’t sound like his :

    We all felt so humbled by these Words from our King – we felt so insignificant – like dust and ashes- in this awesome Presence that I just cannot find the words to describe, and yet it semed our King was thanking us!

    The silence was finally broken with the melodious tune of Peta’s mobile. After looking at the message, she excitedly called out that a child had just been born to a young couple in her family! She then left the room to call her family.

    Previously we had shared the Scripture and Prophetic Word that one of the Prayer Warriors who has written to you had received: Isaiah 66:7-9 “Before she was in labor she gave birth; before her pain came she was delivered of a son. Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment?…”

    Of course, when Peta returned, she shouted “It’s a boy!!!”

    We finished as we had begun, with a rousing rendition of the song “Great South Land of The Holy Spirit.”

    When we came out of Parliament House we were astonished to see many fire- trucks, police cars and ambulances, all with lights flashing, right up and down the street outside Parliament House. All the traffic had been blocked and firemen and policemen and ambulance personnel were running around everywhere. We smelt smoke and discovered that the National Headquarters of Paspaley Pearls, which is across the street from Parliament House and is a huge building several stories high which takes up a whole block, had smoke billowing out of it’s windows all afternoon but noone could find the fire – they suspected the wiring in the ceilings but didn’t know which level and the whole building was evacuated because there were many gas bottles in danger of blowing up.

    It was on the front page of the paper the next day, and fortunately noone was hurt, but I had felt all along that The Lord was going to show us some sign in the natural world when we left Parliament House that our prayers were really going to start some fires in our own community and beyond.

    There were a lot more Scriptures, words and visions received, but I feel I have already written too much. I did receive a Scripture the following morning, Sunday 18th Oct, and felt it was for all of us, but particularly for Pastor Danny: Psalm 2:1-11.

    We are so excited that we were able to have this opportunity to pray in unison with our brothers and sisters across this mighty and blessed nation of ours and just know that something which had an evil grip on our nation has been BROKEN! PRAISE GOD!!!

    We look forward to hearing from other Prayer Warriors who gathered at the same time to Take The High Places for Jesus Christ Our King.

    God Bless you always,

    Much love, Jeanne
