Report Riga May 24-26:

We were well received by the YWAM team in Riga. We also had 2 new seasoned intercessors coming from outside to join us and more locals went with us for the prayer in the city. It was all a sign that the church is stronger in Riga than the 2 other Baltic capitals.

After first morning of worship, we got quite clear guidance about were to pray there was a straight line down the Freedom Avenue to the Freedom monument, then to the Rifle man monument and the Victory monument. We went to pray at these 3 monuments, in that order. These monuments symbolized a lot of the history and a lot of the painful history the last 100 years. Next year in November it will be 100 years since Latvia became an independent country for the first time. A lot of the history around these monuments could stir up a lot of emotions and enmity as the 100 years celebration approaches. There was also a lot of confusion around these monuments. There was a strong feeling of God wanting to write a new chapter of the history of the nation to start after the 100 year celebration. So, we prayed a lot around and about the enemy not being allowed to stir up strife from the history and for God to bring healing and reconciliation among the Latvians; the ones who had Russian affiliations and the ones with Latvian.

We really seemed to hit something very significant from God in the prayer. Our coordinator sent us this encouragement in an e-mail: I just wanted to again say a big thank you for coming, for your obedience and the very big blessing you were during these days here. I believe we will even in the coming weeks and months see greater evidence of what took place….. I also have a sense that a shift has taken place and something broken off….

The next day we had a visit to the parliament. We were shown around by people who pray a lot for the government. After that we had a powerful time of worship and prayer in the chapel of the parliament. We prophesied many things, but a significant one was for fathers to raise up, fathers who would be real fathers to the nation and for a new song to be released and song over the nation.

In the afternoon, we went down to the river to pray into the foundation of the city. It turned out there was a legend about a monster in the river fighting against a hero in the city. Here we believe we were touching the stronghold of depression and heaviness over the city.

As a bonus, some people in the team joined the ministry reaching out to the men going for the prostitutes and others went to the place where the song festivals are held annually (a bit smaller than the ones in Tallinn)

Satisfied over the time in Riga and mission accomplished, we headed for Vilnius next day.

Report of Rome Feb 22-24:

Before the trip, as we prayed, we felt we should pray about the river Tiber, to see cleaning of it of course physically, but which was obviously a source of spiritual pollution. As we looked on the map, we realised that the source of Tiber wasn’t far from San Marino. So, we had decided to go to the source to pray. When we got there, we found a Roman statue and there had definitely been some spiritual consecration. It was a very special place with the 2 sources coming out 10 meters apart.

We started to declare that this was God’s creation: the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. Because of that we declared all other initiations invalid and prayed for the undoing of it.

We then read 2 Kings 2:19-22 before 4 people in the team poured out salt in the 2 sources. Then we declared that healing, restoration and salvation will go forth wherever the river flows and for a new portal from heaven to be opened with the river of God flowing from this place. It was a short and powerful prayer. We had a sense that we accomplished something important with God.

In the evening we had a meeting in the House of Prayer in Rome. We had like an open heaven and the presence of God was so strong. Another woman from Ecuador was added to the team, so now we had 11 people from 9 different nations.

Feb 23 we had 3 different pastors share with us about Rome and the Vatican and the spiritual mapping of the capitals. It was very helpful and we realised that there is so much to pray into in Rome and the Vatican

Feb 24, we went to the river Tiber by the 3 bridges between the Vatican and Rome. We want to continue to pray for the purifying of the river and its spiritual influence. Is 27:1 talks about Leviathan, the serpent in the in the sea and Ezekiel 29:3 talks about the monster in the rivers. So these are water spirits that influence the river, but also the surrounding area. So our mandate was to pray concerning this water spirit. We split up in 3 teams – one on each side of the river and one walking over the 3 bridges. Everybody had salt that we sprinkled in the river at different places. We prayed as we were led at different times. Someone had a vision of the serpent in the river being cut in pieces and die. So, we believe this will happen. Someone received a vision that there will be so much water and there will be floods as a sign.

In the afternoon, we went to 4 places of the government; the Senate, the house of the deputies, the Prime Minister’s office and the presidential palace.

The prayer at the Senate was the most profound and longest. It was also the place that was the heaviest. We prayed that the senators could get out of their apathy, slumber and heaviness. A vision was given of a snake around the building. A two-pronged fork from heaven came to squeeze and hold the head of the snake to the ground. In its anger, the snake broke all the snake eggs with its tail as it tried to move fiercely around. It also ate the broken snake eggs which were poisonous. This made the snake nauseous and it vomited it. This killed all the offspring of the snake and its stronghold will die off. 4 senators manifested in the vision and tried to dominate the Senate as they had done before, but the other senators would not let themselves be intimidated any more. This will bring a change in the Senate.

At the Prime Minister’s office, we prayed that the PM would stand straight in his authority, not bending over by people’s opinion or pressure, being able to make the right decision even if it’s unpopular. Otherwise a new PM might come before the appointed time of election.

At the presidential palace, we prayed for the preident and his family. We prayed that he will be used to restore authority in Italy, to make the right decision whether to hold elections in 2017 instead of 2018 as it is planned.

We gave all the prayer back to God and thanked Him for a good and long day.

Reykjavik, May 5-7, 2015

We had 3 sunny days in Reykjavik and Iceland as well, which was another miracle. There was still snow on the mountain tops around, so it was cold. But we thank God for the favour with sun shining and warming us.

Praying where they want to build the alter to thor

Praying where they want to build the alter to Thor

Iceland is a completely different ballgame than the Faroe Islands. There are a lot of spiritists, occultism and the worship of the Norse gods is popular. So we could feel the tension in the air and the confusion raining over Reykjavik. We met with a small group of intercessors in Iceland. We had a good unity with them during the whole time we were there. Since the worship of the norse gods is strong and they want to build an alter to the god Thor: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/02/05/why-iceland-is-building-a-temple-to-its-pagan-gods.html , we decided to go there to pray. We received clear direction of how to proceed ; among other things putting a stone there like in Dan 2:34 and 1 Pet 2:4-8. Right now there are only a memorial of one of the forerunners, Sveinbjörn Beinteinsson, for this worship in modern day. There were big machines there to start the work for the altar, but we prayed that it would not happen.

We walked around in Reykjavik praying at other important places.

The last day we went to where the nation was founded and had its first government ; Thingvellir, a very special place, an UNESCO heritage site today. It was founded as a Christian nation officially with the cross in the flag, but to continue the pagan worship privately. So from the beginning there has been this compromise in the foundation of the nation which is a reason for all the pagan worship today. So we prayed into the foundation of the nation, for God to pull out idolatry.

Then we went back to Reykjavik to pray at the today’s ministries and government ; for the future of the Iceland, for God to enter in and bring Iceland, the nation of fire and ice, into His destiny.

Last evening we had feedback and sharing. There was a lot of thanksgiving and testimonies of a special and blessed time. Everybody seemed to be encouraged and having faith to continue the good fight. We thank God for this special time.
