"Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know" (Jeremiah 33:3 MEV).

The wonder working power of God's authority and saving grace.

"Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts" (Zechariah 4:6 MEV). An awakening is when a nation comes alive spiritually — when it sees its need for God and turns to Him. A revival is when God's people come back to life again. Revival simply means "to restore." So as to, see God's mercy in our midst according to His guidance and good pleasure. An endowment of faith as prayer changes things.

"And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all discernment, that you may approve things that are excellent ..." (Philippians 1:9,10 MEV). So as to, distinguish between spirits or among spirits. It is the ability to see into the spirit realm; beyond the five senses. To discover God's will and all other motivations behind the situation or circumstance. To affect change according to God’s loving kindness.
- 15 | Emmanuel - God with us:
"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or imagine, according to the power that works in us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever" (Ephesians 3:20,21 MEV). So as to, entrust our safety and daily needs upon His superlative benevolence: as a "hedge of protection" about us.
- 17 | Spirit-led intercessory prayer:
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1 MEV). So as to, intercede on behalf of others according to God’s heart and wisdom with us. As the Spirit brings deliverance, while pushing aberrant character traits outward and washing away the graffiti that once stained the soul — a complete cleansing for family and friends.
- 19 | Wisdom to Overcome adversity:
"But you, beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy faith. Pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in the love of God while you are waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, which leads to eternal life" (Jude 1:20,21 MEV). So as to, "... that you may declare the goodness of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light" (1 Peter 2:9 MEV).
- 21 | Maranatha - hope of glory unfolding:
"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, for the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed" (1 Corinthians 15:52 MEV). So as to, an alarming and "sad" social reality of being "left behind" for the loyalists of worldly-wise opinion. Therefore, this spectacular and joyous event "shall be" witnessed by everyone — the advent of unspeakable blessings and entitlements in Christ, Jesus.
- 23 | A prayer of faith for Israel:
"This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their minds and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people" (Hebrews 8:10 MEV). So as to, send a blessing to the Messianic Community according to God's good, acceptable and perfect will. A matter of grace alone through God's mercy.
- 25 | Angels on Assignment:
"For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places" (Ephesians 6:12 MEV). So as to, entrust a Word of faith over and above worldly events and situations that require angelic support. So once again, the wonder working power of His majesty: as a joyful shout.

- 29 | Gospel Communications insight:
"Awake, O north wind, and come, O south wind! Blow upon my garden, that its spices may flow out. Let my beloved come to his garden, and eat its choicest fruits" (Songs 4:16 MEV). So as to, share the good news as an eye-opener of inspirational intent. In the essence of a pleasing sacrifice and labour of love.
- 31 | Giving praise and prayer most heartily:
"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches" (Revelation 3:22 MEV). So as to, consider the most unselfish, less esteemed and those prayer requests that seem to fall between the cracks (so to speak). A reflection of a merciful heart that shows the way of His salvation. The surety of Christ, Jesus with us today.
"The Lord your God is in your midst, a Mighty One, who will save. He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will renew you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing" (Zephaniah 3:17 MEV).
