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!

ONE NATION UNDER GOD ~ Spread the word!

by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro (c) 2011 

ONE NATION UNDER GOD on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d593RguxQI8&feature=share

As many of you know, recently the Lord gave me a “suddenly” and had me compose a new song for our nation called: “ONE NATION UNDER GOD”.  With the help of Michael Everett and the Creation Lab in Turlock, CA, Mark Davis, Brandon Davis and the voices and artistic talent of some amazing young adults the song has been recorded and uploaded to youtube.  (link above)

The Lord’s instruction to release the song via youtube on the July 4th weekend was very specific and as with all His plans strategic.  July 4, 1776 we DECLARED we were an independent nation, but it would only be after years of Revolutionary War, where at times it looked like the cause would be defeated before that independence actually became reality.  (For instance, remember the winter of 1777/78 at Valley Forge, PA.) With the song, “ONE NATION UNDER GOD” we declare this our intention for our country though in some ways it seems like it is no longer the case.

As Christians we find ourselves in a culture war where mankind’s wisdom and self-will continue to exalt themselves as if superior to God’s supreme, eternal, unchanging Way.  We need to be encouraged to stand firm, strong, resolute and resilient, in all love and respect toward others as we represent His righteousness and singular Truth.

Thus though the song, “ONE NATION UNDER GOD” was released the weekend of July 4th, its message goes far beyond this patriotic anniversary.  “ONE NATION UNDER GOD” reflects a mindset and lifestyle.

Those of you who have listened to and/or viewed the song already know it remembers and honors the heroic actions by so many on 9-11-2001 and in the days and months which followed.  We need to also remember that each of those whom we now consider heroes woke up ordinary, unknown citizens that morning.  All they did was to step into the work God laid before them regardless of personal cost. This is what made them heroes whom we must never forget.

It is also the call from God on each of our lives today – to step with confidence and trust in Him into the work He has for each of us.  It is through us He will spread His love and truth to the world.  It is through us that His righteousness and way will be represented in our midst.

Please help spread the word about the song, “ONE NATION UNDER GOD”.  As awareness of it increases it can become a unifying and rallying point.

God created it so that our words have effect.  (His Word has the ultimate effect!)  Often what we speak, we become.  He is the one who commanded us to write His Way on our hearts, because He knows we need it in order to stand strong in the face of the onslaught of the opposite.

Music is a powerful vehicle to accomplish this.  If we will but declare we are one nation under God and function as if it is true (because it is true for each individual who operates as an ambassador and citizen of His kingdom while living out the physical existence here on earth), then individual by individual we can expect America to slowly turn and once again reflect a culture which is united a nation under the one true God.

This song is not about me or any one person. This song is not about promoting any individual but the message!

I am the least of those who should have professional recordings. I don’t have an exceptional voice or extraordinary musical talent.  But I do yearn to hear His will & obey it. Thus listening for this song and stewarding its recording and release have been an act of joyful obedience to His call.   The existence of this song is a testimony to the fact that God uses “nobodies”. In other words, where many of us feel like we are “nobody”; God demonstrates this is not so.  We are all somebody to God and He will use each of us to do extraordinary work for His kingdom if we will believe Him, listen to Him and seek to obey.

Alone we can accomplish no good thing.  We need to be in God’s will, accompanied by His grace and power.  None of us can accomplish everything which we know is needed in the circumstances we see around us.  God created us to need each other; God gives each of us a piece of the work.   No one part of the work is more or less important than any other.  All are needed!  Then in those moments when He gives us the gift of a glimmer of His overview, we begin to see hat He is using the many of us with which to weave together an exquisite quilt of His Way.  Out of each small act of obedience by each of us, He sews a covering of His love, grace and righteousness for the world.

Please pray if you are one of those called not ensure the message of this song does not stop because a patriotic weekend has passed…Do as His Spirit leads, sharing, posting, forwarding by email, helping Christian media outlets become aware…  Thank you to every one of you who has already helped.  Every effort you have extended is appreciated!

May this song go forth because of the individuals who hear His call and know they are to spread the word; may it rally us to stand strong, faithful and vigilant in our daily work to be true to God’s principles even while we love those in our midst.  May it encourage us that each one of us matters and that no work of our hands is insignificant to God.  May it give us hope that if we only persevere in the work He sets before us each day and do not give up that indeed His love will fill the world and our nation once again can be more fully one nation under God.  May it help us give thanks for the many blessings we have received and inspire us to bow down ready to be His servants to bring His blessing to others.  May it rally us to unite for Him, love one another and listen for His guidance every day.  God, please bless America and the entire world. God, we are submitted to You.  We trust in You.  Help us to remember and act as one nation under God. You are the only One we adore!  We know who You are and we are bowed in awe!  We want only Your way.  We trust in You!  In Jesus’ precious name, Amen
