Breakthrough Prayer on Good Friday 2018

June 25, 2011 sunrise; elizabeth burgard fulgaro copyright 2011
Lord, You gave all for us though we have done nothing to deserve it. The place of Your suffering and sacrifice is the place of our redemption. We rejoice in Your cross and bow humbly in thanksgiving for the incomprehensible gift of Your love.

March 30, 2018

Prayer humbly written out by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro ©2018, as led by the Holy Spirit (as “heard” interiorly) and posted here for those called to pray in one accord. Our God calls us to pray. He hears. And answers.

Today, Lord, is the day in 2018 that we commemorate Your death (JESUS!) for us. Lord, I can feel Your power and Your victory in the atmosphere. It is ominous and great. It is beyond all knowing, beyond our grasp, and at the same time palpable and there, real and extraordinary.

Lord God, You are King. It didn’t matter that they killed You–murdered You. You remained King. If possible, You increased in Your kingship over all because its as if progressively all things came even more under Your feet. You have always had dominion, but now after the cross, the super (not supreme) other powers knew. Now forever, the superpowers were dis-empowered.

It looked as if You were nothing. It looked as if You were the lie. But through this impossible event, where God appeared dead (killed!), You laughed and Your wisdom rose victorious as Life unstoppable because nothing can overcome Your power. Nothing can halt its forward flow. Nothing.

You have always been and always will be. You are over all and all things belong to You.  Peope and angelic beings can choose to turn from You and You let them, but this does not diminish Your victory.

It is an aspect and a sign of Your unending, unfathomable, unbelievable, infinite, uncreated, always-has-been, always-will-be, unchanging way.

We are small and weak, and think we are so great. Yet, we are so afraid. We cower and draw back from that which seems to threaten us and those we love. And the threat is real, but for Your love.

Your love is the Source. Your love is the power over all in all through the universe and beyond it. You love is an inner-working,  outward-radiating force, resplendent and undiminishable, which captivates those who encounter it so they want nothing else.

Your love is the creating force and the redeeming force , the healing force and the restoring force. This love is unity. It exists in the unity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, for You are separate and together in love always. In union. You invite us in love to dwell in You as love, but not alone–with each other with, and in You.

Your love out-radiating from one furnace of love. Father for Son, Son for Father. And the power of the Holy Spirit within, spiraling unceasingly outward and captivating us, one by one.

We gaze at You, for You alone quiet our hearts, instill Your peace, pour out unspeakable joy, heal our wounds and draw us near, because through you, that which we have done, which has broekn relationship is forgiven. We see Your love for us.

Of this love we gradually become more aware, and we see Your love for them–for allof them. Each one. None mission. You see each one in the wholeness for which You designed him or her. You see their current broken state and weep with those who weep, and You know always and already how You want to draw them (each one) to Yourself now and forever.

You invite us–You call us–one by one as we get to know You, to enter the fight, to begin to rise the ranks (not of stature or position because you value us each equally but of increasing ability to see and know with Your overview).  We become more purified progressively as we gaze at You. We understand Your kingdom more and its unestimable worth, and we want to be even more in alignment to You. You have become and are becoming still all we want and all we need.

Lord God, tonight is not just Good Friday, when we remember Your passion and death on the cross. This year, it is also the first night of Passover–the feast first given to prepare a people to receiv You and all You desired to bring, not just to them, but to all of us together.

Holy One, “once in a blue moon” is what people say when they are speaking of something rare. Tomorrow night 3/31/2018 is a Blue Moon. March 2018 (3/18) is one of those rare months when there are two full moons in one month.

Once in a blue moon. A night–a weekend–to remember You died for love of us, You were in the tomb and in hell for us, and then You rose.

Once in a blue mooon.  Final day of the month of 3’s. 3 for Trinity. 3 for the day You rose and the possibility of Life again for all began in earnest. 3 for the third day in which we find ourselves.

There is such unprecedented worship and prayer rising for Thursday through Resurrection Sunday (even since Palm Sunday) and for Passover.  Love rising in the little way we know how, knowing Your power as redeeming love is radiating out and pouring forth in a flood in response.

We are so faulty, but You died so we can come before You in prayer like this. We join the angels and saints who have gone before, who are already in heaven and we cry, Breakthrough, God.

Breakthrough. On this night, which is the expression of Your extreme love, breakthrough in hearts for restored relationship with You and with each other everywhere.

Breakthrough. Be seen. Be known. Bring the change which shifts a generation–many hearts at a time.

This is Your day. You made it. Season of love. Begun on Valentine’s this year to remind us of the extraordinary supremacy of Your love.

With You there are no coincidences or randomness. You are intentional and You have given some of us eyes to see.

The intercessors have been cryingout. The families and friends mourning.

Breakthrough. The enemy has been vanquished. Show it by release of an extraordinary amount of Your love.

Holy Spirit fire, whet appetites and sear hearts. Turn lives on their head and usher in transformation. It is Your time. It is Your season. Praying with You in one accord. Amen!

Beloved Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit! You reign!

Truth: Spiritual Manual for Battle

Truth: Spiritual Manual for Battleby Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro © 2018

In February 2004 dear friends, Andrea O’Brien, Lori Duffy and Nicole Gee felt led to pray over me to hear new worship songs the Lord was releasing from heaven, which He wanted heard on the earth. The presence of the Holy Spirit was palpably strong as they prayed.  I had composed some songs in the past–perhaps 20 or 25 over what was then my 45 years of life. However, beginning the morning after they prayed the volume of songs composed and manner in which they were composed accelerated markedly.

A few months later, the end of April 2004, while on a walk praying and listening for His new songs, I was talking to Him about how troops fighting the Global War on Terror needed a song. They needed to know there was an invisible spiritual battle afoot greater than they could see and to look to God to guide and lead them through it in order to be resilient and remain as resilient as possible.  I asked the Lord to have someone compose such a song (thinking of the poetic beauty of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”).  About 15 minutes later as I was rounding a bend to head back up the hill to my parked car, I heard a melody with words running through my head: “We will fight for freedom. We will fight the war. Where enemies have vanished, they will be found. No more will they attack us, we stand up to fight. We will protect the nation, God is on our side. Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight.”

The following February in 2005, up at our children’s school, I was introduced to an alumni who was now a Marine about to be deployed for the first time to Iraq. I was asked if I would pray for him while deployed, because I was known as someone who prays. The response was overwhelmingly affirmative. Of course, I would pray. On the way back to my car, my eyes drifted to the school softball field and for the first and only time I did not see a softball field. With my eyes open, I saw a vision play out before me. It was a group of troops marching information in a desert. As I watched with my spiritual eyes (while my physical eyes were wide open), a canopy descended from heaven until it was hovering over them, moving as they moved.  It covered them on all four sides like a tent, but only down to their knees, so although coveered, I could also still see them marching. While I saw this, the Holy Spirit spoke something like the following in an instant of full knowledge to my heart: “If you will get ‘Stand Up’ and some of the worship songs I have given you over there, I will be their covering, I will hem them in before and behind, I will be the banner over them and shine My light in the dark places, so the enemy is more easily found.” Then I saw a softball field before me. It was as it had always been, but I was forever changed. My life could never be the same. The Lord had given me an assignment, which could not be ignored.

It’s a wonderful story for another day, how the Lord led me day-by-day for a year to show me all the different ways He was not going to allow me to get the music produced, and then how He pointed me through a nudge to a friend through a magazine article to The Creation Lab in Turlock, California.  There, for the past twelve years, Michael Everett has helped me to produce over 120 original worship songs (so far), plus “Stand Up” into an ultra-professional form, which I ship to military, military families and veterans around the world, the the non-profit the Lord had me found in 2007 called, Eagles Nest Foundation.

Along the way these 13 years since the vision, I’ve spent countless hours studying worship in Scripture. What is it? How do we do it? Why does God command it? How does He promise to respond when we choose to worship Him? And there are specific promises These concern what He works within us interiorly in response to our worship and what He does in the world around us as well.

As I talked to others, there seemed to be a lack of information which addressed this. Last May, the Lord made it clear it was His timing to write a book about it–a book which had been on my mind to write for a long time. I wanted it to be available to ship with the music, so that those who received it, knew what the music was for and how to employ it for the greater glory of God and greater spiritual wholeness within.

After 3 months of solid writing, Truth: Spiritual Manual for Battle was completed.  The night I finished the first draft after 19 hours straight of working on it that particular day, when I laid down to finaly sleep the Lord gave me a picture.  I saw the cover for the book in the distance and then it came speeding toward me closer and closer until I could see every detail He wanted. This was stunning! I’ve never had anything like that happen before!

The book was published the end of 2017, including a cover design by Amy Cole, which matched what the Lord had shown me that July night.  However, several of the manuscript’s test readers, who were not military, let me know they thought the book was useful for any Christian looking to go deeper in God. They urged me to make the book available for sale. So….I’m pleased to announce, Truth: Spiritual Manual for Battle now available on amazon.com. For those who don’t know the Lord yet, it gives an overview of what is believed and why. For those who do, it reminds of some of the most basic tenets of our faith and deeper union with God.

Over at least the next year, I will begin sharing parts of the book in periodic blog posts.

May our Lord be glorified! And may He strengthen us for wahtever war in which we find ourselves. As we come to rest in Him in the midst of it, may He use us as His instruments to grow His kingdom, wherever we find ourselves.  Worship His Majesty!

Lift Up Your Heads

P1020298This is what is called a prophetic word.  I hear it as if the words are being spoken into my mind and write it down as I “hear” it.  Please always pray before and as you read.  By definition I am human and imperfect.  In addition, when the Holy Spirit “downloads” a word, it will either resonate with you or it will not and that’s okay.  No one prophetic word is for every person.  And this is my prayer for you: ”LORD, please lead each reader perfectly and cause them to receive and remember, only that which is from You for them.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.” ~ Elizabeth

Humbly written out as “heard” March 28, 2018 (Wednesday of Holy Week) by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro © 2018

Lift up your heads My children. Lift up your heads. You are looking too low. You are looking for things of this world. That is not wrong, but it distracts from My higher things and discourages because you measure My activity by the wrong measures. Be assured. In all that you have laid before Me in prayer, I am at work. Steadily, progressively, I am providing all that is needed for My result. I am aware of your heart’s desires. Remember, I made you!  I made you to love, to care and want what you perceive as best. Yet in your best intentions you remain children and as yet, immature in your view. And I love you as you are! And I am calling you to My more.  Your measure of success is too small. Your measure of what’s important like the view of the ant. I love you in this. I love you massively, for you are My beloved children. And…I am calling you to increase your trust. Increase your reliance to Me. Your abandon.  Delight yourself in Me and rejoice in the work I have set before you this day. All work is good and I am working through it. All work is large. There is no measure of one type of work being supreme over another. Do it as if doing it for Me (because you are!) Lift up your heads. Put your eyes firmly on Me. Meditate on Me and let Me write My essence on your hearts.  I love them more than you do and I have not forgotten a single one. Do you not remember? I AM the Good Shepherd. I go after every lost sheep always. I do it My way in My timing. I am never late. I am working out My perfect plans which include all. Believe in Me! Rest in Me. Find your peace in Me even today—especially before you see results. REJOICE!
