Welcome to the Turnaround Prayer Project. Together over the next 21 days we are going to partner with the Lord to frame the year 2015 according to His word and prophetic directives. And a primary directive is that He is granting a window this year for a turnaround!
This Turnaround is Legally Yours
Remember how the Lord judges, or renders a verdict, and then makes war to enforce His judgment. That’s when a window of opportunity opens for your turnaround. It’s legally yours!
From Revelation 19:11—14:
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse. He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war… And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses…”
Last summer at Faneuil Hall, we saw the Lord render His judgment in favor of the saints (Dan. 7:22). The very next day He brought us from the “womb of the Revolution” to the “turning point of the Revolution,” where George Washington crossed the Delaware River. With a “Turning Point” conference, no less.
As the Lord was making clear, He rendered judgment in our favor and then literally entered into our revolution in this hour. It’s turnaround time!
Word for the Year
We saw a foretaste of this turnaround in recent elections. But in 2015 we are going to see much more—especially in the manifestation of God’s power.
Many prophets, including Cindy Jacobs, immediately picked up on this. When we met for the ACPE roundtable this November, Cindy prophesied that 2015 will be a turnaround year. “Turnaround” even became the title of the ACPE corporate word.
This Turnaround Project is actually for the year, not just for the month. Among other things, God is emphasizing household salvation, and tomorrow we’re going to release a year-long project focusing on friends and family who need Jesus.
Year of Open Windows
That said, lets begin this project today by focusing in a prophetic perception that will help you access God’s turnaround. On December 30, the Holy Spirit spoke to me about windows for 2015. I was praying over our schedule, decreeing open doors, when the Lord corrected me. He said, “For 2015 I want you to decree ‘open windows,’ not open doors. For I am opening windows of opportunity that are tied to these doors, and you must now align your ministry with these windows!”
This year God is presenting each of you with open windows. Windows of heaven to draw close to Him, and windows of opportunity for turnaround and blessing. We are sanctifying this time from January 4-24 to be proactive with this promise. To align with God’s Throne, and align our lives and schedules with the windows He is opening.
Dream–Misty Edwards & the Windows
The Lord first began to speak to me about windows in a dream on November 29. In the dream, Misty Edwards came and visited our condominium in Pentagon City. Most of you know Misty as a prophetic worshiper with an extraordinary focus on intimacy with Jesus. I had the privilege of getting to know her 14 years ago in Kansas City, at the very beginning of the IHOP-KC.
In the dream, Misty stepped towards a very large window overlooking Washington DC. We don’t have a curtain, but in the dream she stepped behind a thin white curtain. Misty remained there, silhouetted, for a very long time.
When I asked the Lord about this, He replied that “Misty has not just entered the window, she has become part of the window.” I knew immediately the Lord was talking about windows of heaven, or portals of access to His Throne.
Profound! This year you and I are called to access many windows. But more than this, we are being asked to become part of the windows that usher our friends, our family, our nation into encounters with the Lord and blessings in their lives. To see, to perceive, to share, to know.
This year many of you will actually become windows of heaven. Many who look at you will see Jesus through you, seated on His throne. And they will not only encounter Jesus, they will see their world from His perspective.
Window—Chamber of Intimacy
There’s more to this dream, but for now I want to close with the most important window of opportunity it conveyed. Misty Edwards visiting our DC “watchman’s perch” was a clear but gentle summons from the Lord to embrace again what Misty represents. First-love devotion to Jesus our Bridegroom. Becoming vulnerable. Awakening passion and desire once again. Wholehearted, authentic worship. Returning to the chambers of intimacy!
As we launch into these 21 days, God is inviting us to go to the windows and encounter Him as our Bridegroom. The first turnaround Jesus desires in our lives is a recovery of intimacy with Him. What an opportunity! Friends, this window is opening for you right now.
