"Upon your walls, O Jerusalem, I have posted sentinels; all day and all night they shall never be silent. You who remind the Lord, take no rest, and give him no rest until he establishes Jerusalem and makes it renowned throughout the earth." Isaiah 62:6-7

On Wednesday, my group took a 12 hour shift, from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m., and prayed on the Mt. of Olives. It was a time of refreshment for my soul and God spoke to my heart.

Psalm 84

“How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young – a place near your altar, O Lord Almighty, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion. Hear my prayer, O Lord God Almighty; listen to me, O God of Jacob. Look upon our shield, O God; look with favor on your anointed one. Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestow favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walks is blameless. O Lord Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you.”

When praying for the “next generation” of Israel God gave me a picture of all the children being ushered into the Holy of Holies, a place those before them never entered. He said he wants to take them to the deep places of who He is.

The Lord gave me a picture of the houses here. God put his blood on all the doorframes and instead of the Holy Spirit passing by – it entered each home and by morning all the idols and gods had fallen to the floor as a physical representation.

“Father. Yeshua. Holy Spirit. You Are. Holy. Lovely. Gracious. Never Ending. Merciful. Protecting. Healing. Jealous. Holy and Awesome is your name. Glorious. Upright. Righteous. Compassionate. Slow to anger, abounding in love. Forgiving. Redeeming. Providing. Humble. Gentle. Refuge. Wise. Just. Faithful. A raging fire. A light to all nations. Servant. Mighty to save. Good. Peace. Patient.

Weird things happen when you pray past 2 a.m.

Song of Songs 4:9-15, “You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride; you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of our necklace. How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much more pleasing is your love than win, and the fragrance of your perfume than any spice! Your lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb, my bride; milk and honey are under your tongue. The fragrance of your garments is like that of Lebanon. You are a garden locked up, my sister, my bride; you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain. Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates with choice fruits, with henna and nard, nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon, with every kind of incense tree, with myrrh and aloes and all the finest spices. You are a garden fountain, a well of flowing water streaming down from Lebanon.”
