Morning Prayer: Follow Good, Not Evil

By Apostle Tonya

Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doth evil hath noth seen God. 3 John 1:11

O God, we bless You Wonderful Jehovah Roi, the Lord that Sees. We giveth You praise, glory and honour. How terrible art thou in thy works Almighty GOD. Through the greatness of Your Power O God shall our enemies submit themselves unto You. All the Earth shall bow down and worship thee. O God the Earth is Yours and the fulness thereof.

Wonderful and Gracious Father, we pray this morning that our Blessed Savior and Lord Jesus would bestow upon us His grace to do that which is good and pleasing in His sight to our enemies. And we pray that You would give us more love for them.

We bless You for Your faithfulness, kindness and mercy O God. We seal this morning’s prayer with the Precious Blood of the Lamb, our Friend, Jesus. Amen.

Prophetic Vision: Coronavirus, an End is Near!

By Apostle Tonya

The Word of the Lord came unto me a few days ago concerning the Coronavirus crisis. The Blessed Holy Spirit graced me with an open vision of what appeared to be a sick toddler. The young boy was laying down with his eyes closed shut. The child appeared to me to be in a hospital laying in a coma and was wearing a Face Mask. I felt the Holy Spirit was encouraging me to look at the area of his nose where the facial covering was being removed.

We bless the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for answering His Children cries for the end of this pandemic. Amen.

Prophetic Vision of Former Vice President Joe Biden

By Apostle Tonya

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.  John 16:13

The Blessed Holy Spirit began speaking to me His Will for the 2016 Presidential campaign just a few months before the general election.  In a series of prophetic dreams, He revealed to me that Donald J. Trump and Michael R. Pence would be elected as the President and Vice President of the United States.  

In this election, the Lord has spoken differently to me than in 2016.  Most recently, the Lord graced me with a vision of Presumptive Democratic Nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden.  In this profound vision, the Lord showed me the former Vice President’ head where the brain is located.  

Let us continue to seek the Lord and pray His Will for this 2020 election.  Amen.

Entering God’s Rest

By Apostle Tonya

For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.  Hebrews 4:10

There was a time when the Blessed Holy Spirit began guiding me to study the life of Saint Teresa of Ávila, a life dedicated to the Lord Jesus in suffering, sacrifice and prayer.  The study about her life of service unto the Lord became most rewarding to me and the trajectory of my life increased in hunger and fullness for holiness.  In the Autobiography of St. Teresa of Ávila, she recounted her suffering of debilitating headaches and her desire for an ordinary life with Jesus.  Most dear to me was an account of her kneeling in prayer when the Holy Spirit came upon her and she suddenly began to ascend.  In this account of the Comforter using St. Teresa of Ávila for His glory, she recorded that ofttimes she would plead with Him to cease using her body and would ask the sisters to sit on her.  I wonder what the Blessed Holy Spirit may have thought as His precious Daughters tried to overpower Him!  For His glory is not ours. 

It is written that our Risen Lord stood in the midst in the Book of John 20:26:

And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

Quite like St. Teresa of Ávila, I have pleaded with the Holy Spirit to cease using me in this manifestation of His glory.  I am hopeful that His grace for me to accept it Swill rest upon me for my lifetime.

The Father is kind.  A few weeks ago, He gifted me with an experience of His rest at a special place wherefore I am most grateful to have enjoyed.  It is my heart’s desire to give to women who are preparing for ministry a holy place to rest in Him.  I am in awe that the Lord answered my hearts prayer to experience a rest on the grounds of a convent; generations of sisters offering the sacrifice of righteousness to our Beloved Father.  The Rose of Sharon’ blessed fragrance filled my days of rest as I enjoyed quiet walks with Him and sitting alone in an marvelous chapel filled with His precious glory.  I am grateful.

The pandemic has left many of us fatigued, desiring rest, seeking thy Lord for direction in our lives, marriages, churches and ministries.  I encourage you who are weary from the pandemic’s affect on your lives, and intercessors who have been in a season of warfare to be sensitive to the Lord’s leading to cease from your works and enter into His blessed rest.  For our Father reminds us, it is good for us to draw unto Him, put our trust in Him to declare all His works.  

There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.  Hebrews 4:9

May the Lord strengthen you. Amen.

Prophetic Dream of an Attack

By Apostle Tonya

The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.  Proverbs 18:10

After months of prayer, our Beloved Lord Jesus has instructed me to release this prophetic dream publicly.  

It was immediately after early morning prayer when the Blessed Holy Spirit graced me with a short warning dream.  The dream revealed what appeared to be a terrorist attack in one of the five boroughs of New York City. 

In this dream, I saw bright blue skies. Then, I heard this loud explosion.  I looked in the direction of the sound and saw smoke rising; nothing else could be seen.  As the smoke intensified and continued going upward I knew in my spirit that vehicles were engulfed in its horror.  

The explosion appeared far-reached as I saw it violently travel.  There were no crowds or parked cars where the Lord had me in the dream.  Thereafter, the Holy Spirit showed me just one person running away from the terror as it quickly traveled toward him/her.  

I heard emergency personnel: loud sirens everywhere.  Yet, the Lord did not show me any of the EMS workers.  Amen. 

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7

Think on These Things

By Apostle Tonya

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue; and if there by any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8

O God that Hearest prayers in the multitude of Your mercies we ask You to incline thine Ear to our voice and supplications. O God of Hosts, Hear our cry. Lord, You promised what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if we have ought against any: that our Father also which is in Heaven may forgive you your trepasses. Father, we forgive those that have hurt, abandoned, rejected, dishonored, gossiped and slandered us.

In Jesus Name, we declare the Blessed Holy Spirit has unlimited access to our minds and we ask You to govern our thoughts. We pray that whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, are of good report that You would grace us to meditate on those things. Thank You Beloved Lord for Your faithfulness to purify our thoughts. Thank You for receiving our prayer. We bless You, O Holy Lord. Amen.

Walk in His Love

By Apostle Tonya

Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. Romans 13:8

O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise Him, all ye people. Ascribe ye strength unto God: His Excellency is over Israel, and His Strength is in the clouds.

O God, thou art terrible out of thy Holy places: the God of Israel is He that giveth strength and power unto His people. Holy Lord, we bless You for this new day that You have given to us. Together, we declare the former things have passed away. We thank You for Your Restoration Plan for our lives. Father, we thank You that You have remembered all that has been lost and are strengthening us and healing our wounds.

Lord, we thank You for giving us Your heart. And we pray according to Your lovingkindness that You would now bestow upon us Your greater grace to love one another the way that You love us. Jehovah God, we promise to giveth to You all the praise, glory and honor and seal this prayer with the Precious Blood of the Lamb. Amen.

Morning Devotional

By Apostle Tonya

And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight. Then took they the Body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. John 19:39-40

O God that Hearest prayer in the multitude of thy mercies we pray that thou would incline thine Ear unto our voice. We pray believing according to Your Word in the Book of Mark, Chapter 11, verse 24: Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Blessed Father, we put You in Remembrance of Your Word and plead together according to Isaiah 43:26. Father God, as it is written in the Book of John, Chapter 19 verses 39 and 40: Nicodemus helped prepare our Lord’s Body for burial. Father, You opened Nicodemus’ heart to love Your Son and receive Him. We pray that You would also open the eyes of our enemies seeking to destroy us. Holy Spirit, we ask You to open their hearts, turn it from wickedness and give them love for us. We thank You Father in the end; Nicodemus loved Jesus more than the Jews.

Father God, we declare we will extol thee, our God, O King; and will bless thy Name for ever and ever. In the Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Thy Kingdom Come

By Apostle Tonya

Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was. Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face. Esther 7:8

Father of Glory, it is a good thing to give thanks to You O Lord. Together,
we sing praises to Your glorious Name O Holy One of Israel. We bless and thank You for Your faithfulness to us. We bless You for the grace to walk in our dominion and authority. We decree that we are victorious in our Beloved Christ Jesus. We decree the enemy’s wicked devices against marriages are now destroyed. Thy Kingdom come.

I seal this prayer in the Blessed Name of Your Son, Yeshua HaMashiach. Amen.
