Kings – Called to Pray
February 27, 2005


Kings – called to Pray

In the last newsletter we shared a prophetic call to prayer.  Please glance at it again and then take a look at some of the email responses that came back.  They will give you a sense of what God is doing in the kingdom right now.  They are so instructive that I created a special web page, “You Wrote Back” dedicated to the responses from Kings in the field.

Know the Season; Know the Strategy

One of the keys to spiritual warfare is simply knowing the season and knowing what to do in that season. Jesus chided the crowd for not knowing how to interpret the season they were in.

men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do  1 Chron 12:32

How is it that you don’t know how to interpret this present time? Luke 12:56

We’re in a season where God is giving breakthroughs in answer to prayer and fasting.  It is a season of intense spiritual warfare through mid April. The enemy is being forced to release resources, buildings, land, businesses, ideas, etc. Where there have been delays and defeats and discouragement, there will be great victories and breakthroughs.

Warring, believing, persistent prayer is one of the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. Here is a simple scriptural principle that Kings exercise. To take your land and expand your portion of the Kingdom on this earth, you must open the doors of the Kingdom of Heaven and release God’s provision and will through prayer. We understand what is already bound and loosed in heaven and we declare that same victory on earth.

19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be (what has already been) bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be (what has already been) loosed in heaven. Matt 16:19

18 “I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. 19 “Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”  Matt 18:18-20

Take the opportunity to experience your own breakthrough during this season of prayer and fasting. Here’s why – Warfare is a “fact of life” for Kings that expand the Kingdom.  Prayer and fasting are, necessarily, a “way of life” for Kings. You are God’s mighty men called to do great exploits in this hour. Your primary offensive weapon is the Sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God (Eph 6:17).  You wield that mighty sword through prayer in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of  prayers.

but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. Dan 11:32  NKJV

17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Eph 6:17-18

Conference in Holland

March 28 – April 5

Harold has made ministry trips to the Netherlands for the last few years. When Releasing Kings came out they wanted to translate the book into their native Dutch language. So It’s natural that this trip have a Marketplace Ministry theme. One of the seminars has a Dutch web site at  Please Keep this trip in prayer. We’re expecting God to do great things on the international scene… Sue and Linda are both going as well.

Here’s the tentative schedule.

March 30th     19.30 hrs. meeting in Anna Palona Church

April 2nd          Releasing Kings / Marketplace  WHOLE day SEMINAR  in Almere

Progress – Kingly Bio’s are Up

We’ve completed the first round of interviews with Kings.  These are real people that have been blessed by God in the Market Place and have hearts for ministry.  Check it out at  If you have a success story, we’d like to post it by giving you a web page on our site.

Progress – A Teacher’s Guide

We’ve completed the first version of a study guide that targets those teaching the material in Releasing Kings.  It includes a page of notes on each chapter, all the graphics suitable to make overheads, and a PDF file of the book with the key points highlighted that includes marginal notes, comments, and questions.  This material is available for purchase on the teacher’s guide page of the web.


Friends Tell Friends

Harold and I have both been hesitant to “market” this book… sounds self-serving.  Here’s the “grassroots” reality.  God has given us a great tool to communicate a message that sets people free in an amazing, contagious, life-changing way.  If you haven’t read it – get it.  If you have read it – give it.

We’ve gotten a ton of positive feedback on the newsletter too… get it, give it.  Reloading Seniors was powerful.  Pass the link on.

PS: don’t forget to look at the free reports – show your pastor the article on marketplace ministry from the pastor’s perspective.  You can simply email him this link or print a copy to give him.
