Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We have a great report to encourage you as we draw to the close of another fruitful year. As you read the examples of God’s grace, share with your family, fire up your faith, rejoice with us, and be inspired for your glory story, too.
We began the year with Psalm 115:14:
The Lord INCREASE you more and more...
We are experiencing a tangible increase in God’s manifest presence in signs and wonders. The prophetic compass and prayers from the Watch of the Lord™ and our local and itinerant missions continue to impact families at home and influence national and international events. We are receiving testimonies and reading results in news headlines every week!
In her prophetic word at the beginning of the year, Bonnie saw the Godhead presenting the body of Christ three noble gifts: wisdom like a hammer but soft, grace in miracles of physical and psychological healing, and rewards for faith that has been tried by fire. There is a tremendous increase of the Holy Spirit using Christians to speak into every area of influence this year. The greatest reward is seeing lives transformed through salvation and the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
May this be your continuing glory story, also. We pray your year will end with singing!
It is twenty-five years since the Lord told us, “Watch and pray.” Our watch focus goes across the world. Watchmen join together on the wall of prophetic intercession every Friday night. We are so thankful to see poured-out blessing and protection, especially for our record-breaking U.S. jobs reports, growing economy, and the preservation of peace and increase for Israel.
In Charlotte, NC, we are partnering with our city officials and law enforcement to bring hope and transformation to at-risk and high-crime neighborhoods. We have provided hundreds of brand new winter coats for low-income children in one of the neighborhoods where our volunteers serve week to week. We are especially proud of the city’s Ambassador Program training volunteers to impact our city, bridge differences, engage neighbors, and prepare to welcome fifty-thousand plus visitors and hundreds of media outlets for what is anticipated to be the biggest media event in history: the 2020 Republican National Convention. Pray and engage with us!
“Seek the peace of the City where I have sent you, in its peace is your prosperity” Jeremiah 29:7.
As we hover around the testimonies God gives, they multiply! We are believing for your breakthroughs as we share these with you.
This has been a year of generous, financial increase. In Ashland, VA, Mahesh prophesied concerning a particular scholarship coming for a student, and it came to pass. We are receiving reports of sudden promotions and pay raises, unexpected gifts, tax returns, and money appearing in bank accounts. If you are in the market for increased provision, we are hovering for your miracle, too.
There is a strong anointing for deliverance from addictions. In Ohio, Mahesh prayed for parents whose son was incarcerated and drug addicted. He prophesied that within three months the Lord was going to turn it around. Three months to the day, that young man was selected into a new program for rehab and recovery. He told his mom the Lord has chased him down. In two glory stories from Texas, young men who were suffering from drug addiction have been set free this year—on fire for God. One of those men says he is happier than he has been in years. If addiction is an affliction in your family, we break its power today!
Cancer is not too big for God.
A woman named Sandy came for prayer for pre-cancerous polyps in her colon. “As soon as you anointed me,” she reports, “you laid your hand on my head, I went out! Jim (Sandy’s hubby) said that you continued praying for me as I was on the floor. You laid your hand on my stomach and prayed and commanded the condition to go. On Monday, February 11, I went in for my colonoscopy. Afterwards, the doctor met Jim at the door to the recovery room with a big smile on her face. ‘Everything’s Normal!’ Jim said, ‘No polyps?’ She said, ‘No Polyps!’ This is the first time I have EVER had ‘0’ polyps in a screening!!!! ZERO!!! I AM HEALED by the stripes on Jesus’ body!!!!”
Cancer healing from this year’s Ignite conference:
“I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My daughter, Noell, attended your last conference and had you pray for me as she stood in. You gave Noell oil and a red band for me to wear. I know that hundreds of people beside my family and friends were praying for me. When I went for my last mammogram before surgery (scheduled for July 29th) the cancer was gone. The Lord is so wonderful. I am so blessed. Thank you for the love and blessings you share from our Lord.”
Nothing is too big for God!

In Maryland, a woman stood in prayer for a child who had been in a coma for five days. She texted the child’s mother from a Sunday service when the Holy Ghost fell and people started running around the sanctuary receiving various healings. She told her friend, “I’m running in the glory right now for your daughter. Wake up sleeping beauty.” Within minutes she got a text back with a picture of the little girl awakened from the coma!
A family returning from our fall Fire and Glory conference spoke that word to a man in a coma in Atlanta. He immediately began responding, woke up, and started talking! He announced, “Get me out of here!”
...you and your CHILDREN
In California, Michigan, Louisiana, Maryland, Washington State, and the Carolinas, families delivered from barrenness are celebrating new babies. A woman in our service in Maryland conceived and gave birth to twins after healing prayers.
Every day the glory of the Lord is present to save, heal, and deliver. Chronic pain and infirmity must bow. In His Presence tinnitus, arthritis, kidney problems, back and arm pain, and much more are all being healed immediately.
In Montreal, Canada, many received Jesus as their savior and were baptized in the Holy Spirit. There were a number of instantaneous healings including deaf ears being opened.
This is a season of victory and great miracles! Lay hold of these testimonies for you, your family, and your church. Claim them, and let your glory bubble get bigger.
We were blessed to host another year of powerful conferences attended by hungry God-seekers, pastors, leaders, intercessors, and world changers. Our first-ever Glory Force Summit weekends were tremendous times of mentoring, personal commissioning, and impartation for folks from a variety of spheres that ranged from the medical profession to banking, IT, fine arts, ministry, and Fortune 500 companies.
We went on pilgrimage to the Holy Land!
On our Israel tour we kept the Watch on the southern steps to the Temple Mount where Jesus healed the blind man in John’s gospel. We had the blessing of bringing financial support to a strategic organization ministering to
terror victims and the poor, both Palestinian and Jewish. Our special healing service was packed with locals hungry for a fresh touch of God’s miraculous grace. We were in the Land during their very crucial elections. We visited the new American Embassy in Jerusalem.
We blessed the Holy City and interceded for America according to the promise of Psalm 122:6:
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
May they prosper who love you.
Our sowing in Cuba continues to lay the groundwork for a wonderful harvest. Cuba is an orphan nation whose people live in hopeless poverty under a crumbling regime. Bonnie traveled twelve hundred miles from one end of the island to the other ministering to a wide network of churches. Though the believers are pressed between systems of secular godlessness and intense legalism, many are discovering their identity as sons and daughters through the message of the kingdom and God’s love and power. There were amazing reports of healing and great testimonies from the open-air meetings in the jungle. We sowed the Spanish translations of our book, The Hidden Power of Prayer and Fasting, as a part of equipping believers to change their nation’s history.
This year’s New Year’s Eve Watch service will be a time of celebrating the silver jubilee of The Watch of the Lord™, twenty-five years of unbroken prayer and worship. Make plans to attend on December 31st, 2019 at 8:00 PM. We will rejoice together, and hear the Word for the New Year. And make plans to get in the glory with us for an upcoming conference or Glory Force Summit in 2020.
On behalf of thousands of families you have touched through your partnership with us this year, thank you.

We are continually humbled by your support, and are very much aware that we are an extension of your love and commitment to the Lord and His purposes in this crucial era. Let’s go even further with mission 2020!
We are seeing the Lord’s banner of victory over next year.
