“The secret things belong unto the Lord our God. But those things which are revealed belong unto us and our children for ever, that we may do the words of this law." - Deut. 29:29

3 Greatest Prayer
Secrets for 2013
"Notorious" End of Year Prayers...
Awesome! — now that's the one I'm really waiting for! The last one was invigorating, exciting, and powerful. It changed my year forever! This has been one of the best year's ever!

Because we're headed into one of those extremely rare "Wild West" periods that those of you reading this (the Winners) will be weaving stories about to your grandkids…
… while the Left-Out folks wonder what just happened.
I’ll explain in a second here… but first let’s get this straight:
PRAYER is the #1 pre-requisite
to victory, breakthroughs and miracles … in every area of your life.
You're dead in the water without it.
But on its own, it's not enough...
In 2013 there will be a series of dramatic twists and turns on the path to victory – you will encounter allies and helpers. Both true benefactors and those who shift shape in order to lure to the edge of doom...
There is something … a crucial nuance … to be careful of.
Those who miss it may find their breakthroughs sabotaged and short-lived.
As we approach the year 2013 you can divide up the believers into 2 camps.
Camp #1: Those who have an idea of where God wants them to go… and a simple Prayer Plan that they can quickly and easily put into ACTION to get there.
Camp #2: Everyone else… those dear people overwhelmed by information overload, crippled by inaction, because they don't have a clue how to take the FIRST STEP toward victory.
If you belong to Camp #1, congratulations. I have something precious to share with you in a moment.
If you belong to Camp #2, then this is even more crucial for you because...
The Next 27 Minutes Can Change Your Life
From: Elisha Goodman
Sunday 3:15 AM
(From the prayer trenches
in the City of Roses)
Calvary greetings …
This story began last year. Today we take it to the next level...
Many years ago, I used to hold one prayer class at the beginning of the middle watch. This was open to the public (but it was mostly people who had problems that defied every other solution who bothered to show up).
Once you entered the class, you had to promise to put in practice what you learned.
In one class, a brother who was one of the top leaders in his church, confided that he had been struggling to quit watching pornography for 20 years.
His marriage was crumbling. He had traveled all over the place seeking for deliverance.
It seemed almost all the great ministers of God had laid hands on him at some point or the other.
He himself had prayed, fasted and done everything in the book.
Yet no change.
In fact it was getting worse. The web was just becoming popular then, and he found that Internet pornography was just a mouse click away.
I sat with him and explained the simple principle of the Golden Journey.
Then I threw him a challenge.
After that he seemed to have vanished into thin air. It wasn’t until 6 months later that he showed up …
… a changed man, with a testimony that got us jumping up and down, shouting…
PRAISE THE LORD!
In another session, a desperate mother of two shared with us how her 17-year old daughter had been lured into sexual perversion through bad influences and peer pressure at school.
All of a sudden, this charming your girl began to live the lifestyle of Sodom, claiming that she was born that way.
Once again, I sat down with this sister and explained the principle of the Golden Journey to her.
I warned her that she needed to start the journey immediately, if she wanted to see results anytime soon.
She heeded my advice.
By the time she was mid-way through, those demons, who claimed that the girl was born that way, were forced to beat a hasty retreat by the consuming fire of the Living God....
Praise the LORD.
Now fast forward to TODAY:
To date, we have spent months in the prayer trenches of the Golden Journey. We have gone through Levels 2 and 3. Very shortly, some will be going on to Top Level 4.
This is our prayer laboratory, where we spend weeks both in practice and spiritual combat. So many prayed and the LORD answered them, sometimes in shocking and dramatic ways.
To give you some idea ...
The prayers they prayed …
and the answers they received
Yes, God is mighty and nothing is impossible with him. My niece was in coma for about two and half weeks. Both her kidneys had broken down and her lungs was not working properly so she could not breath on her own without the machine. Her body had swollen up due to the toxin that had not been released as the only dialysis machine the hospital possessed had broken down. To top it all off she had an infection in the lungs and where the tubes had been into her body. I refused to accept anything less from my God. I knew deep in my heart that He is the Healer and He was going to heal her. A few days ago she came out of the coma and out of the Intensive Care Unit. I am so grateful to our God who is so faithful to us.
The blessings did not stop there. While visiting her overseas (in Fiji), a few people accepted the Lord as their Lord and Saviour and straightaway on my return someone else got saved before I even knew she came out of the coma. How amazing is this God that He continues to touch our lives in a mighty way.
My prayer was simple: “Lord I stand on your word that You promise to heal and deliver her and uproot every root of infirmity in her life for Your name is above every other name and is above her altar of sickness.”
Bro Elisha, thank you for teaching us the correct and powerful way to pray in order to receive our blessings. Thank you for the Golden Journey too. It is so powerful and we are so blessed to be praying it.
Bless you and your family.

Elisha for teaching us how to pray prayers that bring results.
Praise God. I am here to testify the goodness of our lord.

I was looking for job for almost 3 years, before joining Elisha prayer program. My experiences of job search were not so good. I neither get final offer irrespective of different interviews nor be able to keep the job I offered. The enemy was torturing me by telling my lies in my dream, steeling my destiny and destroying what God gave me. I was naive and do not know how to cancel my bad dreams, pray to recover my stolen, diverted and destroyed destiny back. Thank God he gives me Elisha in my life and thought me how to fight back and recover all my stolen blessing.
I got this job and worked for the company for one year and 6 months, it was a lot of struggle to keep this job, this time I knew how to fight and get back what was stolen. This job was one of the amazing things that happened to me after I joined Elisha prayer program.
All of a sudden, I am terminated with no explanation except business decision. I was frustrated, desperate and thought the enemy did this. I did not know how to handle the situation. Next day, I emailed Elisha about the situation and prayed over my e-mail to get his attention and ready to do whatever is assigned to me. My expectation from Elisha was prayer points, fasting and praying and the result I expected was decision reversed.
Here is the email and the answer:-
Present this letter before the Lord, dance and praise Him for 30 minutes, if you are tired, speak in tongues, and continue with the singing. After 30 minutes, remind God of His promises and then continue with the dance for another 15 minutes, and then go to bed (7 days). God bless you
The instruction given was different form my expectations, but without questioning I just obeyed. Here is the result:
1. A week before the termination in my linked; I got an a update of a lady I knew in the past who changed her job. I sent her congratulation and she replied one day after Elisha emailed me and started praying as instructed.
2. I sent her my resume for potential opportunities. I had a call for my first interview before the job was posted officially (during the 7 days of praising and dancing time)
3. Before the 7th day I got confirmation for final interview. The offer letter came in less than one week.
It is so amazing experience how I connected with the next job, a job created for me, grace and glory during interview time and finally getting offer. I am starting this job within the week.
How I see the termination is changed and I believe God gave me a paid vacation. The whole process took only one month. This is the beginning of a new era for me.

I thank God for your ministry. I have been sick for a long time due to pregnancy complications and have never had a success in completing the academy. Finally, the baby has arrived after a long struggle and a major emergency operation, during my time in hospital I used the prayer of Caleb and my husband used prayer cookbook to pray for me.
The doctors thought me and the baby would not make it, but we
believed only the report of the Lord and prayed according to
your materials. I am here today, alive and well with the baby by
the grace of God and ready for the academy.
I want to thank the Lord for a miracle of healing of uterus fibroids. Last year December I have booked for an operation to have my uterus removed. Just a day before the operation I called the hospital to cancel. For me it felt wrong to have my body organ removed yet I prophesy to serve the great God, I referred to Him as God of the Bible, because God of the Bible is different from the one most of us Christians serve for one reason that the things that are mention in the Bible no longer happen in our days.
Ever since I got saved I have so much faith in God, problem was that things were not happening as promised in the Bible, I had this yearning that something is missing in my life, I have been living a sinless life. I thank God for you, ever since I started reading your materials and eventually buying the ebooks, it has been like you are holding my hand leading me closer to God and the things I have always known God is able to do. I am already in the prayer academy, in lesson 5 now.
Two weeks ago as I was praying the prayer points, the Holy Spirit impressed in me to pray seriously on these two, 1) Every evil growth in my body dry up in Jesus Name. 2) Power and Anointing to arise from every sick bed of illness come upon me now in Jesus Name.
After that prayer I continued with the Academy until after a week I touched my abdomen, there was no lump, (it was as big as if I was 6 weeks' pregnant) I asked my husband to feel for it, it was gone. My daughter came back from school 3 days later I just told her to feel my abdomen, she couldn’t believe it. She asked me what happened I told her God did it. She cried because of joy and that God still performs miracles.
As part of the Prayer Academy assignment I have learnt in Ephesians 3:20 that God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. The power that He uses to do great exploits is in us that is why you are not sending us tangible things (clothes) to use to get miracles but you ignite our hearts with God’s fire to tap into God’s promises. I thank God very much for you, it is the great blessing for me come across your website.
God Bless You,

In fact I have been on your website for close to 2 years now. I
remember on this particular day of 22nd Nov 2010, after several
days of serious prayer and partial fasts because of the
challenges my daughter was experiencing in class (eg
her Mathematics teacher used to remove her from his class most
of the time, she became very emotional, stressed etc but we
decided not to take action against the teacher for fear of her
being victimised, instead I told her not to worry but to take
note of all the maths topics covered in class and then almost
every evening I used to coach her in Maths) yet
she was a candidate, I was meditating on a certain verse and
decided to look it up in the online King James Bible. On the
home page of this online bible, a pop-up window talking about
"40 dreams........" came
up on the screen and I clicked on it and subscribed to be
receiving your material. That is how the Holy Spirit led me to

Last year this time, everything had come to a standstill, I lost my job, therefore had no income to sustain myself and take care of my family in foreign land. My Visa was expiring, rent and school fees plus all other necessities were due but I had no money to settle my dues. I prayed all the kinds of prayers that I could pray and fasted but it looked like my prayers were hitting a blank wall.
A friend of mine, introduced me to Elisha Goodman’s teachings. I was desperate for solutions and was encouraged to read the Passion prayer book. I had problems to enrol for the Academy due to my financial status but God made a way for me. In November 2011, I joined the Academy and eagerly followed through the lessons of the academy praying at the midnight hour coupled with fasting as advised by coach Elisha.
The situation continued to worsen but since joining the Academy, I had the determination to fight on to my breakthrough. I took part in the 27 minutes to midnight and opening the gate for 2012 prayers. I submitted job applications to every job that was related to my field of expertise but no feedback came my way. My kids were due to go to school in January 2012, but I could not afford their school fees and just kept them at home. Due to my visa status, I could not even think of going back to my home country for fear of being fined. This was heart-breaking but I kept fighting on trusting that God would take me through.
I completed the Academy in March 2012 and took part in the Golden Journey Level 2 in April 2012 but there was nothing to show for all these prayers. I had assurance in my heart that all was well and I kept pursuing and I believed that ‘my testimony will shock my enemies and surprise my friends’. I was getting depressed to see my kids unable to go to school due to my situation and I kept firing ‘any power taking my seat of greatness, be unseated by fire and die in Jesus name’.
In one church service, I felt the visiting preacher speaking directly to my situation and had an urge to go to the altar for prayer. Right there at the altar, my Pastor signalled me to get in touch with a church leader, who asked me for my CV. Two days later a Senior Manager from a Government department called me for a chat and when I visited it turned out to be an interview.
I waited for some weeks for feedback and to my amazement and surprise, I got an offer letter!!! Jesus is the Lion of Judah!! The salary is 118% more than the salary I used to draw in my previous job with a host of benefits. The job has come 15 months after losing the previous one. My kids are now going to school paid by company, accommodation fully paid for, full medical cover for my family, both my visa and those for my family fully sponsored, debts and last year’s outstanding rents are fast clearing, and the peace of Jesus just reigns more and more in my family. I keep falling in love with the Lion of Judah!!!
My journey was long and heart-breaking but thanks be to God who causes us to triumph.

I started last year October 2011 with the prayer Academy and boy it was a huge struggle to overcome SPIRITUAL LAZINESS, ANGER and I could not go past day three of the Prayer Academy Lesson 1 and everything just backfired in my face because of the above mentioned problems, I fasted and started all over again for 10 months. The problem was all along in my foundation. Once I realized it I focused on it and thank God I am now on Lesson 2 of 7.

Thanks be to God. My friend introduced me to this website. I was shocked by the testimonies that I read, especially about how God answered prayers and how aggressive prayers that were taught. I started using the prayer bullets for employment for my daughters. I also prayed that my children could commit their lives to God. Within a week my daughter got a job, She and her husband decided to recommit their lives to God and be baptised. We wrote a list and prayed according to it. To my surprise everything we prayed for we have been granted. Thank u for teaching us how to pray and get results. May God bless u.
- Lebo, South Africa
I do bless God who has used you to teach us how to pray. Words alone can not explain how thankful I am that I stumbled upon your material. I gave a lift to a lady that goes to the same class as my wife and she forgot her copy of your book, “pray out of debt”. Being curious, I read it and it led me to look for more of your material. Finally I was able to pay and enrol for the prayer academy.
First I prayed the 40 Prayer points to attract a new car and within just a matter of weeks, I had a new Land Rover Discovery II miraculously parked in my drive way. My wife and I kept wondering and amazed at how fast this set of prayers works. We decided to make it a daily prayer at midnight and now we have another new car on the way. I am even afraid if we continue further we may not have enough parking space at home.

When I first came across this site I really thought it was another scam to abuse of weak people mind. I have started following but with a whole lot of doubts. I strated by doing a 3 days midnight pray then the last letter received yesterday I followed asking the Lord to open the floodgates of abundanc in my finances. For 3 months I have been working with no pay. To God be the glory I have just received the full payment of what was owed to me and I could make my purchase of the ebooks and reserve my seat for the Prayer academy strating Dec 25th. Thank you Lord. I will now be able to pray with more faith this time

All the glory belongs to God as He continues to prove to us that HE is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Now, I don’t want to leave you with the impression that everyone received a breakthrough. Though many continue to send in breadth-taking testimonies like these ones, we also received countless emails from discouraged believers who found that the nothing seemed to work, in spite of all their prayers.
Like this next one…
Am very disappointed right now because i have done all you instruct us to do since 2010 but my life ain't changing. I don't know if you remember any of the mail I sent you about my relationship. Eventually my boyfriend got married to another girl.
I continued to believe and pray then in march 2012 I started dating another guy but when I talk about marriage/starting a family he keeps saying next year and does not seem committed. Recently I found out that there is also another girl. Am making 30yrs and not spring chicken any more.
I have done all those prayers in the books but nothing works for me. My debts just continue to grow and my salary is static. I even go without lunch to save but all is not working.
Just last night i had a dream where my boss says my mom (who was dead even before I started working) told him to keep me there (one place no change).
Am always reading praise reports on the blog but ask myself: why is it NEVER ME? Maybe am not meant for this.
Time for a reality check...
In case you are wondering…
In the midst of so many wonderful testimonies, why did others fail so spectacularly – in spite of having done everything they were told to do?
There's an answer to that question.
And we'll go into the Scripture to find out.
But before we go one step further, we need to pause for prayers. Please close your eyes and take these three prayers with fire in your voice:
I speak destruction unto the roots and fruits of the anti-Christ in my life in the name of Jesus.
I clear my goods from the warehouse of the strongman in the name of Jesus Christ.
Holy Spirit, activate my spirit, soul and body for revival in Jesus' name.
Praise the LORD. Now we’re ready to begin…
We will start today by addressing the question on the minds of many today:
Why are my prayers not getting answered? In spite of the fact that I've done all I can to fast and pray?
We'll take that question now. Then we'll take a prophetic look in to 2013. All in all, we'll address 3 recurring questions that our readers have sent in.
Question #1: Why are my prayers not getting answered? In spite of the fact that I've done all I can to fast and pray?
Answer: Let's take a little Case Study from the Bible.
In Luke 2 v 25 – 32 we read:
Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:
Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace. For my
eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all
people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people
- Luke 2 v 25 – 32
What has this got to do with answers to prayer, you ask.
Let’s look at this more carefully.
#1: This man Simeon received a definite promise from the LORD. This came through a very specific revelation. His entire destiny was tied to the fulfilment of this promise.
#2: Now watch what he did. The passage says he “waited” for its fulfillment. For a believer who is expecting something from the LORD, the period of waiting is a special time. It is a time of prayer. It is a time of fasting. A time of preparation. Because there is a time and season attached to each and every one of God’s promises.
Waiting is a time of great spiritual alertness – not a time to sit around passively and do nothing!
#3: Here comes the most critical part: during this period of “waiting” the Holy Spirit will move you from time to time to take certain actions – both spiritual and physical. You have to be sensitive enough in the spirit to recognize when HE is moving you … and when HE is not.
Herein lies the secret of spiritual success and failure. Ultimately your
time of waiting is meant to prepare you for this. If your prayer and fasting
have not yet sharpened your discernment to the point of recognizing the
Voice of the Spirit, you may be headed for a catastrophic failure.
You have NOT prayed to the level of
if you have not "heard" the voice of the Holy Spirit
He could be telling you to wait. He could be telling you to take certain ACTION. Promptly. But if you cannot hear what HE is saying...
It is almost certain that sooner or later, you will be manipulated by the spirit of error … speaking through well-meaning individuals and even loved ones.
If you allow this to happen, it will be difficult to make the right decisions concerning the issues of life. Such a person will not know her left from her right, spiritually speaking.
This is the reason many have failed in the past. In spite of prayer and fasting, they have remained blind, deaf and dumb in the spirit. They remain second-hand Christians, forever in need of someone else to tell them what the Holy Spirit is saying.
In this 21st century world we’re living now, that’s a dangerous place to be. Yes, many prayed and fasted, but they still missed their time of divine visitation. All because they were not listening to the Spirit when it mattered most.
There is Good News. As you read on, you will see that there is a way to get out of this trap in 2013. Let me just point out that there is no problem that you will face in this coming year that the Holy Spirit does not already have a specific solution for.
The one lingering challenge is to know how to obtain His divine prescription for your life. This is not as hard as it sounds. I am persuaded that any believer who is willing to remain humble and teachable can learn this.
So if you find that many divine promises have failed to manifest in your life, you really need to look at this man Simeon here…
- He received a powerful revelation about his divine destiny from none other than the Holy Spirit.
- Then he went into a protracted period of “waiting,” i.e. a time of prayer, fasting, holy living, fellowship with the Holy Spirit, and Bible study. (Yes, he knew the Scriptures; he was quoting from Isaiah 42 while holding the Baby Jesus in his arms).
- When the time was ripe, the man was MOVED and positioned by the Spirit to receive his divine promises.
- So it was no coincidence that he was able to see, touch and feel the blessing that he had waited expectantly for, all those years.
Please imagine this…
What would have happened if Simeon had failed to show up at the exact time that the Child Jesus was brought into the temple?
Do you think the promise would have been fulfilled if he wasn’t hearing and following the voice of the Spirit of God?
This is spiritual sensitivity at its finest
It is the first thing to keep in mind in 2013.
I think you should close your eyes right here now and take this prayer with a holy
“In the year 2013 I will NOT miss my time of divine visitation in the name of Jesus”.
Question #2: That is truly challenging. In your last year’s program at the gate, you said it was going to be a year of Powershift. So many people and nations witnessed that firsthand. What are the prophetic insights for 2013?
Answer: I am excited about 2013.
It is the year that the wind of true revival will begin to blow over the church. Many of you reading this have never seen a genuine revival. The last true revival happened many decades ago - most of us were not even born at the time.
But the LORD is getting ready to visit this generation with an earth-shaking revival. This will be only the first stirrings, mind you. But in the next four years it will gather momentum all over the earth.
The keyword for this year is: BYPASS
The LORD is set to bypass all human calculations and manifest His glory in a mighty, thunderous outpouring that will ignite our communities for Christ.
You will see... just watch and pray.
On an individual level, the year 2013 is the 3rd year of the fig tree. And a year of spiritual bypass.
Before I explain what that means let’s set the tone by reminding ourselves, in plain language, what it was that the Lord Jesus came to teach us all (remember they called Him Rabbi, meaning Teacher).
If I can sum it up in one word, it would be …
- to create anew, to reproduce…
- It means make, or cause to be or to become.
- It also means to create mentally and in the abstract, rather than with one’s hands.
- It means to form anew in the imagination, recollect and re-form in the mind.
He taught us how to re-create 3 things…
#1: He taught us how to re-create our relationship with the Father (by accepting His love and loving Him in return).
#2: He taught us how to re-create our relationship with others in the human family (through love).
No wonder He answered this way … when asked about the greatest commandment:
One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.
- Matt 22: 35-39
There is one MORE thing HE came to teach us.
And that is …
#3: How to re-create (almost) anything else that has gone wrong in the human experience.
For example, He taught us how to re-create ...
- Eyes for the blind
- Limbs for the lame
- Ears for the deaf
- Health for the sick
- Abundance for the poor
- Joy for the depressed
- Comfort for the afflicted
- Relief for the debtor
… and so many other things that had been destroyed beyond recognition.
Yes, He taught us how to do these things and more.
As the greatest teacher who ever lived, He did it in ways others could not.
He taught us by D E M O N S T R A T I O N
He revealed many deep spiritual secrets in His teachings. I wish I could tell you that anyone who just reads the Bible can unlock these spiritual secrets.
But that would NOT be correct. It takes The Person of the Holy Spirit to reveal these secrets to us, and to show us the true meaning of what we daily read in the Scriptures.
Not only that.
It takes this same Person to show us how to correctly apply what the Scripture teaches.
Talking about the meaning / interpretation of Scripture, the Bible warns:
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; Who also has made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life.
- 2 Cor. 3: 5-6
Without the special illumination of the Holy Spirit, all attempts to unravel the meaning of Scripture will fall flat on its face.
Having said all that, let’s back up and take a prophetic look at the year 2013.
What 2013 Holds for You?
3rd Year of the Fig Tree – What Does It Mean?
Let’s open the Bible and find out.
In Luke 13: 6 - 9, we read:
He spoke also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he to the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why encumbers it the ground? And he answering said to him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that you shall cut it down.
A physical object has a spiritual equivalent. In this passage, tree refers first and foremost to the nation of Israel.
Then it also refers to the followers of Christ. You and me.
Now something quite significant is going on here.
First the dialogue. Then the spiritual exchange.
We notice that the owner of the vineyard is sore displeased with the fig tree. Why? It is unproductive. It is barren. It is using up nutrients that could well be used by other productive plants in the garden. In short, this one tree is living well below its potential.
Now for three years, this unproductive tree has received all that it needed to become productive – sun, rain, fertilizers, you name it.
But nothing. No fruits. No results.
The master’s patience is exhausted. He is left with no option than to order it to be cut down immediately.
Here’s where our big lesson comes from…
Someone (the vinedresser) steps forward and pleads for more time.
Here’s The NEXT Biggest Reason
Why Prayers Are Not Answered
If this “tree” had failed to bear fruit in the last 3 years, what reason do we have to believe that the next one year will make any difference?
But spiritual things are different from the physical.
Would you be surprised that when the master returns in a year’s time, there will be a marked difference?
Because within the next year, a spiritual bypass would take place. Something inexplicable will happen…
- That will activate or “wake up” its DNA to begin to bear fruit.
- It will cause the tree to bypass all obstruction, and to begin to absorb the nutrients available for productivity.
That will happen in the spiritual realm.
There is also a physical side to this as well.
The vinedresser says he will dig about it and then he will fertilize it.
What has this got to do with 2013?
There is a clarion call to REPENTANCE.
For those who are tired of living mediocre lives, those who are living below their full potential in Christ, to arise and cast away their garment of mediocrity.
What the vinedresser said is pregnant with meaning.
The LORD is offering you a choice:
- In 2013 HE will release all that you need to re-create every area of your life from the ground up.
- You may choose to take advantage of all the resources about to be released or you may choose to ignore them, and continue the way you’ve been going all these years.
- This one year is the golden opportunity for you to bypass all barriers, roadblocks, obstacles (both internal and external) so you can rise above the mediocre existence that’s so common these days.
- If you embrace this opportunity, you will become like the Simeon in the Bible – God’s words will be made flesh in your life, and you will soon be able to see, taste, handle, and sustain your divine blessing. Year in year out.
- But if you decide to ignore the opportunity that 2013 presents, something will be quietly withdrawn from your life, and transferred to another, leaving you unknown, unnamed, and forgotten.
Please close your eyes and cry out to the LORD with fire in your spirit:
O LORD, please do not transfer my divine assignment to another in the mighty name of Jesus.
Herein lies a companion reason (to the one we discussed) why many prayers are not answered... a big reason why many believers have been making zero progress in their spiritual lives these past years.
Many have already been cut down in the spirit. Though they may be walking around looking holier-than-thou and shouting Jesus at every turn, the reality is that they are walking dead.
They are like King Saul in his latter years. Long after his divine assignment had been transferred to another in the spirit, he was still sitting on the throne, pretending to be king.
To everyone else, he was still the anointed of the Lord.
But in the heavenly record, he was a reject; his destiny had been diverted, leaving a hollow shell, a caricature in its place.
A man who once kept company with great prophets, and prophesied along without missing a beat, ended up secretly seeking for help in the coven of a witch.
Incidentally, one of the tell-tale signs that can help you recognize believers who belong in Saul's category of rejects is this…
…. they cannot resist going to consult with psychics, stargazers, herbalists, diviners, sorcerers, and all kinds of people who use strange powers to see visions and prophesy.
They are avid readers of horoscopes. And they love to follow fake prophets, and anyone who will tell them what they want to hear.
Many years ago, as I stood surveying the spiritual landscape of the city where I now live, the LORD gave me two simple things to avoid.
He told me that if I avoided those two things, I would have dealt with 90 percent of the problems that afflict people in my environment … well in advance.
HE made me aware that that those two common things had already terminated the assignment of many popular ministers of God, including some that you see on TV. Never mind that they are still preaching the "Gospel."
Here’s the thing to note.
For many years I kept searching the Scriptures. Though I read the Bible over and over again, I could not find where those two things were mentioned in connection with each other. But one day, just a few months ago, the Holy Spirit showed it to me as I was studying the books of the prophets.
It is time to pray again:
“If my divine assignment has already been withdrawn, O LORD, have mercy on me and give me one more year in the name of Jesus.”
This is a great prayer to pray. The thing about one more year is a great mystery.
For many reading this, their one more year is 2013.
Many people who are professing to be serving the LORD today are just running on their own steam. For some, it would take a powerful divine intervention for them to realize that the glory had loooooooooooooooooong departed.
See a recent email I received just this month…
"I Ran Off With Another Man - A Pastor!"
“I just got an email from you inviting us for a 10 weeks programme on marriage restoration. In summary I ran off with another man because I had lost interest in my marriage. This man happened to be my pastor. Now after joining the Prayer Academy and having read your materials I got back to my senses and I want my marriage back. When looking back at my family history my mother left her husband and went off with another man…”
- - Name Withheld to Protect Identity
She ran off with … who? A pastor, of all people.
And what would this pastor be preaching to his congregation every Sunday?
Now I don’t know what church this is but do you suppose they will be interested in preaching God’s word in its entirety? Especially the part about holiness?
Why am I so particular about holiness?
Because the Bible says: "... without holiness no one shall see the LORD (Heb. 12:14)
Meaning: He won't even hear the prayers of such people, no matter how hard they pray!
Now if you are unwittingly worshipping in a place like this, at some point you may begin to wonder why:
- the lives of many are getting mired in sin, debt and stagnancy, in spite of paying
their tithes and giving offerings faithfully.
- marriages are breaking down (even those who had no problems in their marriage before, as soon as they step in there, the wind of marital distress begins to blow against them),
- and strange sicknesses are popping up here and there…
Then you have to realize that anointing flows from the head.
It is worth repeating:
This is a clarion call to REPENTANCE.
In spite of what may have happened in the past, it is important for you to know that there is grace available today for you to recapture what has been lost. But you have to take advantage of it now.
Don't keep putting it off.
Because once you are able to recapture your lost glory, you may quickly find yourself on the highway to global recognition.
Yes, many of you reading this will be celebrated in 2013.
Even the LORD will celebrate you!
The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.”
– Zeph 3:17
(Note: If you are not interested in being celebrated, you have a choice: you can at least transfer it to your children through prayer).
Please close your eyes if you can and take this next prayer with a voice like thunder:
“You my divine potentials come forth and manifest for global recognition in 2013 in the name of Jesus.”
For 2013, Jesus will empower you to …
- bypass the disappointments of the past
- bypass the rejection and failures
- bypass every furnace of affliction
- bypass frenemies (i.e. enemies masquerading as friends)
- bypass battles that rage at the edge of breakthroughs
- bypass invisible obstacles, barriers, roadblocks, hindrances
… so you too can accelerate in the spirit to where God wants you to be without further delay.
This is the second lesson to take into the New Year.
Praise the LORD.
Question #3: What is the one thing we must do ... to be able to put into practice all that you've said, so we can possess what God has for us in 2013?
Answer: You need to become a CATALYST.
A catalyst, you will recall from high school Chemistry class, is a person or thing that precipitates an event or change.
Specifically your prayers must serve as the catalyst that helps transform divine promises into physical realities.
The LORD is looking for catalysts in 2013.
When you read the Bible carefully you find that the most impactful people were catalysts.
For just one example, Jeremiah was a catalyst.
His prophecies and prayers served as the trigger for events that continue even to this day.
He prophesied about the captivity and the return after 70 years; he foresaw the worldwide dispersion of the Jewish people and the restoration thereafter; he even saw visions about the kingdom age, the day of judgment, and those that would be spared.
Other prophets such as Daniel followed in his footsteps.
As a catalyst you take the FIRST step.
God will take the NEXT step.
And on and on it continues.
I receive thousands of emails every week. From all nooks and corners of the world.
A disturbing pattern I’ve observed is that people are waiting for God to move.
Whereas God is waiting for us to move… to take the first steps, and HE will take the next.
Actually the LORD had already done all that HE set out to do before we got here.
And now HE is waiting for us to do our part.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us,
in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
- Romans 5 v 8
So the ball is in our court right now. When Jesus came and taught us how to re-create things that the devil had previously destroyed, the idea was for us, his disciples, to carry the flag from that point on…
- to re-create a loving relationship with our Heavenly Father
- to re-create a loving relationship with one another
- to re-create everything else needed to fulfill our divine destiny
Back to the parable in Luke chapter 13.
He spoke also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he to the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why encumbers it the ground? And he answering said to him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that you shall cut it down.
Here we find the vinedresser offering to take the first step.
He is prepared to dig the ground around the tree, then he will fertilize it.
In the book of Jeremiah, we see this:
See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.” - Jer. 1:10
Jeremiah also had to do some digging (spiritually) – to uproot, pull down, destroy and throw down many things…
… before he could ever begin to build and plant.
Now when you prophesy and claim the promises of God, you are building and planting in the spirit.
When you pray for blessings from the LORD, you are building and planting.
Does it make sense for you to start building or planting anything in the physical without digging and preparing the ground?
The Bible does not think so. In fact we're given an order to follow, if we are to expect any harvest:
- Dig the ground and prepare it, then fertilize (Luke 13: 8)
- Prepare the ground – uproot, pull down, destroy, throw down – then build and plant (Jer. 1:10).
Here Is A Secret For You
God will gladly back up everything that follows this simple biblical pattern.
All our prayer programs follow this pattern. Those who have gone through our Prayer Academy know that you are absolutely required to take the Starter Prayer for weeks before the real program begins.
The Starter Prayer is what sets the tone for the thousands of testimonies on our websites.
This same pattern of prayers continues right through the 7 Lessons of the Prayer Academy.
By the time you complete the Prayer Academy and step into the 24-Hour Blog for the Golden Journey series, you find that we take this pattern of prayer to the extreme quite a bit.
Golden Journey prayers are delivered in what we call the “PATROL” sequence:
- The 1st set of prayers is called the Digger. Its job is to tunnel into your foundation to uproot, pull down, destroy and throw down every hidden curse, covenant, evil dedication, soul ties, etc. that might be hindering your spiritual life, often without your knowledge.
- The 2nd set of prayers is called the Point Man. Its job is to watch out for, and deal with, enemy reinforcement, counterattacks, spiritual booby traps, and danger areas – in the spirit realm.
- The 3rd set of prayers is the Team Leader – states our main petition clearly before the LORD.
- The 4th set of prayers is called the Navigator. Its job is 2-fold. First, it helps to keep our prayer focus on Christ, and nothing else. So even though you hear us aggressively address the enemy, our focus remains wholly on Jesus Christ our Lord, and we only pray as led by His Spirit.
Second, this set of prayers is in charge of communications in the spirit realm. A great example is the hot prayer bullet to disable the monitoring devices of the enemy.
- The 5th set of prayers is meant to Support the Team Leader (#3 above). What it does is support our main petition with scripture upon scripture upon scripture. The Bible tells us to present our strong reasons before the LORD. Prayer will not be effective without the appropriate scripture to back it up.
- The 6th set of prayers is the Fertilizer. What it does is water the garden of your life with divine blessings. Powerful personalized prophecies, pronouncements and proclamations are the hallmark here.
- The 7th set of prayers is called the Tail End (my personal favourite) – this is responsible for covering our tracks, to make sure our prayers are not being monitored from the covens of darkness. So typically we continuously fire the arrow of blackout into those places.
Now all these prayer bullets are “hidden” or embedded in the daily sequence and you will not be able to tell which one is doing what unless the Holy Spirit opens your eyes.
While praying some of these prayers vigorously, many people tell us that the LORD suddenly opens their eyes in the spirit, so they can see what’s going on.
"I Saw Satanists
Flying Out For Assignments"
Just thought of sharing this with you. After praying after 2am this is what i saw. I saw people(dressed in funny and scary costumes at the airport) boarding different planes to go on different assignments.The ones who looked strong were having their own individual planes and were traveling alone.Then i felt something in my spirit telling me that these are satanists going on different assignments.Those who are going alone are the strong ones for greator tasks. I then wrote down the vision … I thank God for the 24 hr blog

That is the blessing of spiritual discernment – one of the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit.
In the toolkit of the prayer eagles, this one gift ranks very near the top, if not at the very top.
As we storm the Gates of 2013, this pattern of prayers will be on open display and will be put to maximum use, by the grace of God.
PLUS something else…
A Hot, NEW Prayer Sequence...
Please listen carefully.
One of the secret ways the devil tripped up a lot of people after storming the gates last year was to wait for a few weeks for their prayer temperature to cool down.
Then he moved in stealthily and craftily renewed the bondages that they had worked so very hard to break during the prayer sessions.
How can that be?
It should come as no surprise that the enemy has a complete record of your spiritual history (and that of your family going back many generations) already in his archives.
He knows the triggers to pull and the buttons to push in order to throw the gates of your life wide open for his demons to rush in and regain control.
- For many, many people it is demonic rage and anger, transferred from generation to generation through the bloodlines.
- For others it is a corrupted foundation of sexual perversion / immorality.
Look, I’m not making this up.
See this recent email conversation I had with one subscriber to this website just a few weeks ago:
“YOU Are the One in Trouble
- Not the Devil”
I am in the Prayer Academy and got healed soon after Esther Fast (Day 3 of Lesson 3). Thank you Jesus.
I was married for the past 5 years up to 2010 and then I divorced. I think my former wife used magic to bewitch my sexual reproductive system.
A few months after she left, I started to suffer from non erection of my penis (severe importance). I wanted to remarry but my system was dysfunctional in the presence of my girlfriend who I wanted to have sex with as a way of testing my manhood. No sexual desire at all and no erection at all. And this cannot happen naturally.
I sought assistance from various healers before joining the Prayer Academy. These included non-Christian local traditional herbalists. And the problem could not disappear forever.
During Lesson 3, I felt increased desire for sex. Libido appeared to be normal. Since I’m divorced and not having sex I could not realize that I am already healed.
Last Saturday I wanted to see if I am really healed. And I had sex with my girlfriend and the erection was as normal as it was before the bewitchment.
Your prayer points really work. Thank you Elisha. Thank you man of God. Thank you prophet. The devil is in trouble with your prayer points. Now my faith as a Christian is now boosted as a result of the healing.
- Name Withheld to Protect Identity
My response (not very pleasant):
No, its’ not the devil that is in trouble. YOU are the one in trouble. I am “disappointed” with your so-called testimony.
What you have said here shows you do not understand what I teach at all. Your blessings are conditioned on your being born again and living a holy life.
What does the Bible say about sex outside marriage? You really need to repent. I am talking deep repentance here. Then you MUST go for deliverance.
Your sexual escapade has opened the door to something you did not bargain for.
I await your response.
This is a marked man. If only he had eyes in the spirit to see what he’s gotten himself into.
By the time the devil and his wicked agents descend on this fellow, he will wonder what hit him.
If he fails to deal with this issue as I’ve suggested, all the ancestral bondages will be back in place very soon. In fact the bondage will be iron-clad this time around, 7 times stronger, according to the Bible. If he thinks he’s having problems now, he should wait …
"When an evil spirit comes out of a person, it goes through dry places looking for a place to rest. But it doesn't find any. Then it says, 'I'll go back to the home I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean, and in order. Then it goes and brings along seven other spirits more evil than itself. They enter and take up permanent residence there. In the end the condition of that person is worse than it was before. That is what will happen to the evil people of this day."
Please don’t let this happen to you! Don’t let cheap sex rob you of your inheritance in Christ.
I like to caution those who are interested in joining us that living a holy life is non-negotiable.
If you are NOT interested in holiness, then you should NOT even start to pray the way I teach.
Because it can bring major complications into your life.
Please close your eyes and pray like this:
I will NOT go back to my own vomit in the mighty name of Jesus.
For 2013 the LORD has led us to introduce ...
the Prayer Escalator
Just like a physical escalator, which is a continuously moving stairway to carry passengers from one level to another in a building…
… our prayer escalator will carry you higher and higher on the mountain of prayer and power – starting Dec 28, 2012 to Dec 31, 2013.
This prayer at the bottom of this manuscript is the first step on that escalator.
It will be quickly followed by more targeted prayer programs such as the Prayer Academy, Singles Marathon, Gold Academy (for marriage restoration).
Those who have already passed through the above programs have the Golden Journey series waiting for them in the 24-Hour Blog.
Here’s the order of events:
Level 1 - Storming the Gate of 2013 (public event for all)
Level 2 - Golden Journey 2 (24-Hour Blog members only)
Level 3 - Golden Journey 3 (24-Hour Blog members only)
Level 4 - Golden Journey 4 (24-Hour Blog members only)
In 2013 these programs will be prophetically timed to coincide with dates when major spiritual activity takes place globally. There are 8 such events scheduled for 2013 and the Holy Spirit is getting us ready to deal with them as and when the time comes.
Typically these are the times when the devil and his cohorts, working in concert together, attempt to renew age-old generational bondages, by manipulating hidden bloodline covenants and other forces of the universe against people and nations.
Both physical and spiritual retrogression. Evil arrows flying about.
Things generally remain the same or worse for most people.
Our Prayer Escalator will ensure that bondage renewals and satanic reinforcements do not prosper in your life and family in 2013 in Jesus’ name.
Besides, this new series of aggressive prayers will help you become more and more the eagle-eyed prayer warrior that we’ve all been called to be.
And Here’s The Big Promise…
Before we’re done (going through the 4 levels) you should be seeing the spirit realm with your eyes wide open, like the old prophets and seers in the Bible.
When that happens, you won’t need to run to so-called prophets to prophesy or see visions for you. Instead they will be the ones coming to consult YOU.
For a change.
This is a serious matter. Do you know how many Christian brothers and sisters are being deceived by fake prophets everywhere?
Simply because they do not have eyes to see in the spirit?
(Note: this is only going to get worse – the Bible says the deceivers will wax stronger and stronger in these last days - 2 Tim 3:13).
Remember the sister who abandoned her marriage and ran away with a pastor?
Do you know the pastor first set himself up as some anointed prophet in order to deceive her and her husband?
Hear her (in her own words):
Beware the Pastor From Hell
For 12 years I have had a very happy marriage until I met this pastor who happened to operate in the office of prophecy. He told us (me and my husband) that we are going to divorce. Out of desperation we asked him to pray with us which he did. In less than two months I was having an affair with this pastor. In all my marriage life I had never cheated my husband before until then.
Now think for a second…
How great would it be if this sister and her husband had the eyes in the spirit to “see” the mark of Cain on this man’s forehead?
Wouldn’t it be glorious if they could have discerned the spirit of false prophecy (usually in the form of a frog or python) that this individual was using to manipulate their destiny?
At that moment they had every license to deal with that wicked, deceptive spirit with all the weapons at their disposal (please note that I'm referring to spirits here, not the human being).
What weapons, you ask?
They could have called down any of these…
- Whirlwind of the Lord
- Fire and thunder of God
- Great earthquake
- Horrible tempest
- Furnace of affliction
- Brimstone and fire
- Destroying flood
- Anger of the Lord
- Finger of God
- Bread and water of affliction
- Cloud of sorrow
- Continuous plagues
- Double destruction
- Fire mingled with the blood of the Lamb
- plus a whole lot more.
These are all weapons in God’s Arsenal, and in a moment of urgency like this one, you have a license to use them on the powers behind satanic agents of all shapes and sizes.
Some people might think I’m being too aggressive here.
But I’m not. If only you knew the intensity of the battle raging against Christian marriages in the spirit right now...
I have full scriptural support for what I’m saying. You cannot stand idly by and allow satanic agents masquerading as ministers of the gospel to divert your destiny.
Right here I am taking an example from the Great Apostle’s playbook. If you open to Acts 13 you will see what I’m talking about:
And when they had gone through the isle to Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus: Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God. But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.
Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him. And said, O full of all subtlety and all mischief, you child of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is on you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a season.
And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.
- Acts 13: 6- 12
Here the Apostle Paul used just one of the weapons available to all believers (that of temporary blindness) to deal with the situation. Same weapon that Elisha deployed against the Syrian army in the Old Testament.
Beloved, my desire is for your spiritual life to be so upgraded to the point that, instead of being a victim, you will become a victor, a spiritual champion, in 2013 …
… able to set the captives free and to give Living Water to those who are afflicted and bound with chains of iron in the prison house of the enemy.
When that happens, my job will be done.
It is going to take much practice, though.
And you are in for a lot of practice if you are willing and obedient …
… PLUS if you will be joining us in the Prayer Escalator as we march forward throughout the year.
You know they say that practice makes perfect.
A few years ago there was a scientific paper that said when you practice something a lot, your nerve pathway enlarges to accommodate more and more information. The more information it contains, the more skilful and expert you become.
But as soon as you stop practising, the pathway begins shrinking back down.
Meaning: When you stop practising something (like prayer and fasting), you lose a lot of spiritual skills but the more you practise, the better you become.
In spiritual language …
But they who wait for 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.
- - Isa 40 v 31
One more thing …
Please pardon me. I just could not resist sharing this one ... it came into my inbox while I was putting finishing touches to this manuscript.
There’s a great lesson here (highlighted at the bottom for you to see):
“I Commanded Every Poison
To Be Flushed Out of My Body”
I thank God for the Prayer Academy and how it has taught me to pray and get closer to God. I also thank God for the many answers to prayer since starting the programme. My life has completely changed for the better. There are so many good "coincidences" that can only be God's hand at work on my behalf.
Last Tuesday (18.12.12) my left middle finger suddenly turned blue then black and started swelling up very quickly. I had not eaten or touched anything and neither had I been bitten. I quickly rushed to the Pharmacy where I was given an antihistamine and told to visit the A&E. After a while the swelling went down.
On Wednesday (19.12.12) I took the antihistamine again. However, later that evening my finger started swelling again and turned blue and black. The tip was completely white as if all blood had been drained from it. Although my whole hand was warm the finger was freezing cold. I immediately called NHS Direct who advised me to seek medical attention immediately.
As I got ready to leave the house I remembered how you once warned us about sudden illnesses etc and how to launch a counter-attack. I started praying - I commanded every poison to be flushed out of my body, commanding the spirit of infirmity to depart. I pleaded the blood of Jesus. In fact I used every form of weapon I could think of including the fire of God. My finger was healed immediately. The swelling disappeared, the colour returned, no pain. It is now Sunday (23.12.12) and I have been sharing my miracle with anyone who will listen. Glory to God!!!
My daughter witnessed all this and has said that she would like to join the Prayer Academy.

What’s the take-away from this?
When people around you see the wonder-working God at work in your life, you will NOT need to beg them to follow Jesus.
They will plead with you to show them the way.
If you are ready, let’s go
We Are Now Ready To Change
