Awaken the Generations

Awaken the generations, O God.
Awaken them with a song of praise and worship for You.
Awaken the young and the old,
the weak and the strong,
the experienced and unskilled,
with the sweet name of Jesus on their lips.
Calling on You from a sincere heart.
The name of Jesus spoken from the pure in heart.
Give your wisdom to the righteous O Lord
Anoint us with Your Holy Spirit
Set our feet on the right path
We lift up our eyes to You

He Will Find Faith In The Earth!

The sound of Your words, Lord are reverberating throughout Waterford and the surrounding communities. When You return to the earth, You will find faith in the earth. You will find the sound of Your Word vibrating through the earth--being spoken, preached, proclaimed and declared. Your people will remain faithful to You and to Your Word.

Your people are being filled with all joy and peace while believing, and are abounding in hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Joy-filled hearts proclaim Your goodness. Hearts of peace offer thanksgiving to You. Hope-filled hearts pursue the dreams You've given. People of faith are birthing worship into this community. Waterford is becoming a birth place of worship.

Thankful hearts that love You, respond to Your love, thank You and worship You. These people are birthing worship. Children are rising up and declaring the goodness of God. Seeds--potential--is being nurtured and growing. The seeds of destiny and purpose are being cultivated. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, in Waterford as it is in heaven!

Luke 18:8, Romans 15:13

Breathe In, Breathe Out

We fix our eyes on You, Jesus, while standing on the firm foundation You have planted us on--which is also You. You are our foundation, and You are our hope. We stand on You, and look to You. As we do we are being fit together as a holy temple for You. Your body is built up and becomes strong as we do this.

As we gain victory in our lives, we change the spiritual atmosphere which affects those around us, and our leaders. It affects who is elected and the decisions they make as our representatives. As we bring our thoughts captive, we reign in more than our own thoughts, but take that thought prisoner so it can't infect others. We capture it, and bring it under subjection to Christ.

As we consume Your Word, we gain discernment to recognize which thoughts are not from You. Your Word is fresh, living water that cleanses our thoughts, and purifies our hearts every day. May our thoughts, our words, our choices, our gifts, our work, and our actions glorify You.

We breathe in Your Spirit. Let it work through us, changing us, cleansing us and we release it back out into the atmosphere. We filter out the bad by breathing in Your Spirit--Your thoughts and words--and out again. In and out again. We change the atmosphere around us as we breathe/speak You in and out. Filtering out the bad and releasing Your life.

Winds of Preparation, Words from His Heart

Holy Spirit, breathe upon Waterford. Let Your wind blow, alerting us to the movement of the Lord, moving our way. Come this way O Lord! Move upon us! As we feel Your wind, we prepare our hearts to receive You--the Word of God. As we feel the breeze and movement of the Spirit of God, we prepare our hearts to listen for, and receive, the Words You will speak to us. The winds of repentance and preparation are here! We respond and prepare our hearts for You. We are ready to listen to You speak.

Your breath, Your words, bring a conversion from dark to light. Ignite the dark places of Waterford! Of Oakland County, and southeastern Michigan. Your Word brings light. Your Word spoken with the breath of God, creates and gives life. It gives understanding and wisdom. We speak Your Word with Your breath--by Your Spirit. We breathe in Your Spirit, fill us! And we breath out Your Words.

Your Words convert the sinner, heal the bodies, forgive, restore and bless. Your breath leads and guides into all truth, revealing Jesus Christ as the path to the Father. Your voice, O Lord, vibrates and penetrates into our hearts, and all the hearts of this region. Holy Spirit, blow this way. Lord, move this way, and speak to us!

August 28, 2016 - School Prayer

Father God, I pray for safety and protection for all the schools and students in Waterford. And for all the teachers and staff. I pray for protection physically, spiritually, emotionally, mentally, sexually, financially, and in every way. I pray for a safe environment whether in the public schools, private or home-schools. I pray for truth to be taught. I pray for a love of learning to be developed in all the students. For understanding of their gift and call in life to be revealed. For distractions to be diminished so they will properly prioritize their time and focus on what is important for their lives.

I pray for healthy schools--there will be no plagues or diseases. Any attempts to bring evil or harm to the students or staff will be thwarted, exposed and stopped. No weapon formed against these children will prosper. No evil will befall them, no plague will come near their dwelling. Whatever learning environment they are in--even outside of their learning environment--at their homes, and places of play and recreation. I pray for all the children and young people of Waterford and the surrounding communities. Spark their hearts to seek after You, O God. So they will seek the truth and find You. Draw them to You Father God. Pour out Your Spirit upon them. Give them dreams, visions and revelations of You, of the Truth, of Your ways, and of Your salvation.

I pray for the parents, caregivers, guardians, pastors, teachers and coaches. That all those who have any influence or authority over the kids of Waterford lead these children into truth. That they protect them from harm and from deceptive influences. I pray that Common Core, and any program like it, be removed from the schools, and all schools in Michigan. I pray that the policies and guidelines of the schools promote truth and righteousness as You define it O God. That the harmful practice of pretending to choose a gender be stopped and forbidden in the schools. Protect our kids O Lord, from those who would use them as pawns for a political agenda. From those who would try and indoctrinate them against the principles of this country that You instituted which made us strong and free. Pour out Your wisdom and understanding upon this generation Lord, so they are not deceived into abandoning that which You have established. Make them wise O Lord, and pure in their hearts and intentions.

This is a generation that will seek Your face, Your ways and Your truth. A generation filled with Your wisdom and discernment so they will not fall prey to deceptive influences. A righteous, holy, wise and skilled army for You. Breath on them O God, every child, every student, throughout Waterford and throughout Michigan. Fill them with Your Spirit and a hunger to know Your ways. Make the path to You clear before them. Open the doors that will lead them to You, in Jesus' Name, Amen!

Hearts Softened and in Sync

"Lord, may Your people arise and speak the truth kindly and gently, teaching those who oppose You with compassion, hoping for repentance and deliverance from the enemy who has them bound. Correction with gentleness, both are needed. Let Your church raise Jesus Christ as the plum line, the standard, so Your goodness draws all men to You.

Let the heart of Waterford be softened towards You--beating with Your heartbeat--responding to Your rain, allowing it to soften our hearts. We tear down every idol--everything that would try and take Your place in our lives. We worship You with our entire being. You are our rock. We trust in You alone. All that we have built up around us to keep us safe and make us comfortable we offer to You in worship. We respond to Your breath. Your voice. Your word. We draw near to You, come dwell with us!"

Seek the Pure Waters!

It's time to seek the pure rivers of living water.
The other rivers have all run dry.
The land without God is barren and empty.

Counterfeits are exposed.
False promises of peace have run dry.
Only the true Spirit of God will give life and satisfy your soul.

Let God fill your heart.
Allow Him to cleanse you within and wash you without--
To fill your heart and mind with Himself.

Be a place where He loves to dwell.

"Ho! Every one who thirsts,
come to the waters;
And you who have no money
come, buy and eat.
Come, buy wine and milk

without money and without cost."
Isaiah 55:1

Prophetic Word for Waterford Michigan

June 4, 2016
Rose Murdock

There’s been a shift, there’s been a breakthrough in the realm of the prophetic in Waterford. The enemy has been trying to keep the prophetic sensitivity dulled. But there’s been a shift, there’s been a breakthrough. Once this kind of breakthrough happens, then the prophets can prophecy. There will be prophecy that occurs, and the apostolic, along with the rest of the ministry gifts, will be able to function as they need to.

There is a prophetic awakening occurring now in Waterford. The prophetic is coming to life. The prophetic is waking up. Wake up prophets! Oh wake up, oh prophets, and begin to prophesy over Waterford! Wake up worshipers, and begin to worship in Waterford! There is this prophetic awakening going on now, and we will prophesy to the land.

Waterford is called to be a place of refreshing, revival, renewing. “RE” meaning it’s a return, a revival of God’s people. A return of those people, or those things which have fallen away, or been lost, to be restored.

There will be an evangelistic move in Waterford, but first there is a call for God’s own people to return to Him. His people have fallen under this lulling, this sleeping, and it’s time to wake up. There is an awakening that is occurring in Waterford, as the prophets prophecy. It encourages the people to build the wall. Those who have been weary will rise again.

God is proclaiming that He is going to do this. But it doesn’t mean that we sit back and say, ‘O let’s sit back and watch what God does.’ We have to partner with Him, make these proclamations, add our faith. We need to agree with You, we need to agree with the Lord and we will go out with joy and we will be led forth with peace.

What’s happening is affecting Waterford, the breakthrough that has occurred is in Waterford. However, Waterford is the center of Oakland County, and as it busts loose in Waterford, it will ultimately affect Oakland County. Oakland County will also affect the entire state. Water—ford is very strategic in God’s plan. Water-ford it’s the place of crossing over the water. It’s where we cross like they crossed over the Jordan and the Red Sea. We cross over the realm of the Spirit, into the spiritual realm that He has for us.

Some of the lampposts, some of the lights are broken down and in ill repair, dusty and that sort of thing. But God is waking up His people in waves so that there’s those who can minister as each new wave begins to awaken. There are those prepared ahead of time to minister to them. If He woke up the whole body of Christ at once we would all be stumbling around a little bit, looking for what to do, but God is beginning to sound the alarm. Which means “all arms”, all arms come alive, come awake, come alert. And we are coming alive and alert, as each wave wakens up to the things of the Spirit, we are able to help those who are coming into an awakeness and an alertness themselves. So this awakening that’s coming to the body of Christ is doing so one wave at a time, one wave at a time, so that there’s those who have gone before to prepare the way, to help them in their transition.

God is looking for those who will prophesy with faith, boldness, confidence. Those who will prophesy hope. Those who can see into the realm of the Spirit and see what God is doing and use… any of the obstacles or whatever that they see …use intercession to come against whatever obstacles might be in that way. But God is looking for those who can persevere, and those who can see through the clouds of deception that the enemy would try and put up there, and see what God’s doing, what He wants to do. We have to get high up enough so we are above the clouds, and we can see what God is doing and not allow the distractions, the clouds of deceptive strategies of the enemy to interfere with our vision. It takes faith, it takes boldness and it takes single mindedness. This is not a time for double mindedness This is not a time for wavering, this is not a time to say, ‘well maybe God might…, I wish God might..’ This is a time to stand in faith and hear the heart of God and say ‘Yes, He IS doing this. This IS happening now.’ He is the I AM.

He’s calling for those who will go above and beyond. For those who will say I’m not going to do just enough to barely get by as a Christian. But I’m going to go above and beyond, I’m going to persevere I’m going to go the extra mile. I’m going to take up my cross daily. I’m going to give everything, my whole heart to Him in passionate worship.’ Where we get to the place where He is our only option. He is our only option. There’s no turning back. There’s no ‘what if?” There’s no plan B, there’s no contingency plans. But it’s just Him. He is my life. I am pursuing Him.

We’ve got to be willing to lay aside our preconceived thoughts and follow the wooing of the Holy Spirit. Even if it means a new path, even if it means a different way of doing things. And we will get there into His presence quicker than we thought. Surround yourself with those who are like-minded. With other prophetic people, with others who are seeking for this breakthrough and this insight and into the Spirit realm. Surround yourself with those people. Surround yourself with those people, and as you come together and do that, your gifts shall flourish together and become much more powerful. Not just to defeat the strategies of the enemy but to go forward in the power that the Lord has called you to.

It’s like a tree planted by the waters. When you come together and you put your roots down deep, you’re a tree planted by the waters, receiving that continual watering. There’s not a drought there, when you’re planted by the waters, there’s never a drought.

You’ve received your marching orders, now go do it. Go in the power of My love, and go with worship in your hearts. Expect the new. It’s not business as usual anymore. Dream, dream, dream and leave a trail of life behind you. Prime the wells through prayer, through praise, through prophecy.

Real Reviving

A religious spirit is not welcomed or allowed in Waterford. We shall not have a form of godliness without the power of God. The religious spirits that seek to oppress the young of our community, stifling their creativity and spiritual growth, demanding behavioral perfection, leading to a party spirit, rebellion and addiction, shall not prevail in Waterford. We oppose the lawlessness and psychic attraction that this would bring. We oppose the sympathy and compromise towards sin that this would bring.

Father God, pour out a fresh wave of Your Spirit on Waterford--upon the young and the old, the male and female, the rich and the poor, the religious and the righteous. Let freedom and creativity flourish. Let the apostolic ministry arise and create a safe atmosphere that welcomes creativity. Let the borders be strong, and the gardens flourish. We don't want perfection--fake plants that never grow, that are chemically preserved or artificial and plastic. We want creativity and growth, even if we must weed and be pruned. We want life!

Lord, we repent of religion, and come to You for relationship. We repent of rebellion and surrender to You by choice. We rise up courageously, trusting our lives to You. We'll not react to the spiritual oppression that has occurred towards us, towards this community, in a way that is contrary to Your Spirit. But we yield to You, embrace Your ways and cultivate the character of Your Holy Spirit in our lives.

Let the apostolic arise, let the prophetic arise, let the five-fold ministry gifts arise and work together in harmony, equipping and uniting the body of Christ. We turn from hypocrisy, from the form of godliness without the true. We turn from hypnotic influences which would lull us into sleep and dull our senses. We prophesy to the land of Waterford and say, 'your waters shall bring refreshing to many. The weary, the tired, the rejected and despised shall be renewed with new strength. Be free, be creative, be pure and be real.' Send Your refreshing rains upon this land, O Lord--renew, restore, refresh and revive!

2 Timothy 3:5; Acts 2:16-17; Galatians 5:22-23; Ephesians 4:11-15; Ezekiel 36; Psalm 68:8-9

Swells of Peace

"Let peace swell up within Waterford. The whole earth is filled with Your glory. I open my eyes to see it, to see You, and to see Your goodness. I open my ears to hear You and find comfort in the peace of Your voice.

I soften my heart so I may be consistently faithful, maintaining a constant desire for You at the bedrock of my being.

I rest in Your peace, not anxious or troubled, but full of gratitude and worship towards You. I rest in You, look to You, see You, and believe in You.

Raise up Your Shepherds O God, Your innkeepers--Your neighborhood prophets, teachers, evangelists and apostles. Let them be wells of life, wells of joy and peace, wells of hope, and of love.

Let the young people arise in boldness and courage to be uniquely Yours."

A New Season of Loving You and Our Neighbor

Holy Father, we love You with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. We put You first above all. We do not love people more than You. We love people because we love You, and because You first loved us. We will not compromise with people if it means compromising You and Your ways.

Let Jesus Christ be revealed in our neighborhoods. Let the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ shine into the hearts of Waterford. Veils be removed, and blinders go from the minds and hearts of the residents. Churches--rise up and speak faith filled declarations of life over your region! Let the woven fabric of Christians in this community be mended and made strong, taking the form of Jesus Christ Himself.

Father God, we honor the positions of parenthood--fatherhood and motherhood. We do not despise these positions. We honor them as the high call that they are. We honor every child that has been conceived. We will raise them up with love and teach them Your ways, helping them in their own relationship with You.

We give diligence as we enter a new season with You, to clean out the old and prepare our hearts to plant the new, so we can be fruitful--honoring You in every area of our lives!

Master Builder and Architect

Father God, like Abraham, we are "looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God." (Hebrews 11:10).

Be the Builder and Architect of Waterford! May the plans for this township be godly. Raise up the commercial property and business owners who will honor You in their livelihood. May the ungodly plans crumble, fail and lose financial backing, blowing away like dust.

Lord, expose the mirages and facades--the empty shells, the lifeless structures, even of those who appear religious or helpful, but really only offer false hope. May the true messengers of life and truth arise and speak hope and deliverance to those who need You to rescue them.

May all those in position of any kind of authority, who oppose You and Your ways of life, either turn away from darkness and to the light--Your Light--or be removed from their positions of authority.

Lord, protect our children. Protect them from deception and the indoctrination of those who oppose You. Reveal Yourself to them, even in dreams and visions--pour out Your Spirit upon them, so they can grow up knowing their purpose in this life, become equipped in that purpose and fulfill it!

May every church and every family fulfill their destiny.

A Taste of You!

"Lord, let the people of Waterford be filled with Your Spirit and experience a taste of You, so that nothing else will satisfy their hearts. Reveal the holy, ancient landmarks. (Proverbs 22:28). Your original plan and vision for this community. Recover and restore what was lost in that vision and plan. Show it to us! Reveal it to Your leaders, to the residents and business owners. Let the commercial property owners abide by this plan. Stimulate the roots so we can be fruitful for You.

"Rearrange the leaders and residents of the Township so everyone fulfills their call and position. Arrange us geographically according to Your purposes for us. We remember the people returned to their own city to be counted prior to the coming of the Lord the first time. (Luke 1:3).

"I speak peace over Waterford. Let us make peace with You as a township, country, state and nation. We don't settle for anything less than You. Restore the joy so life is not just something we tolerate. Interrupt us, so we remember You always! (John 14:27, Isaiah 61:4).

Filled With Your True Presence & Spirit

"Lord Jesus, we are Your presence in the world, and as You did, we take authority over demonic influence--the god of this world--who blinds the minds of those who don't believe in You (2 Corinthians 4:4-6, 1 John 4:17, Luke 10:17-20). Unblind the minds! Let the light of the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ shine in the hearts of the people of Waterford so they will believe and be saved. Let the love of God be revealed to them so they in turn love Him, and become His presence in the world--filled with the same love (1 John 4:19).

"Lord, may the tabernacle of David be built in our hearts so we worship You continually (Amos 9:11-12, Acts 15:16-17). Draw Your people into Your presence. May we daily come before You and be filled with Your Spirit to carry and release Your breath, anointing, and Your Spirit wherever we go. The true Spirit of God because You don't give counterfeits (Luke 11:9-13). We don't want a form of godliness which denies Your power. We don't want to be salt with no flavor. We don't want to be moved by a religious spirit, but by Your Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 3:5, Matthew 5:13, Luke 9:55). May our speech truly be demonstrations of the Spirit and power of God so that the faith of the people is in You, not us (1 Corinthians 2:4-5). Our light shines to glorify You, not us (Matthew 5:16). May we purpose in our hearts to teach our children Your ways and perpetuate righteousness in the earth. We wait for You, we wait for the True, fill us Lord!"
