I heard the Lord speak this to my spirit last fall. I’d been hearing that a future House of Prayer was to be on Vancouver Island. And then perceived, ‘On an ancient well of the Spirit.’
Now, I grew up baptist. And even though I am pretty charismatic today I don’t run in prophetic or charismatic circles. So, I didn’t even know if ‘ancient wells of the spirit’ was a thing, had never heard this term at all, yet felt the resonance of the Spirit strong in this thought.
I waited a couple of months until January of this year to google ‘ancient wells of the spirit’ and there, lo and behold, many links and articles. “Okay, so, this is a legit thing.” Cool, Very cool.
But still, I didn’t read any of the articles or watch any YouTube videos. I try not to clutter my head with the thoughts of others. I really and simply want to hear from the Lord, particularly when there is a new something on the horizon.
Then, this week a friend of a friend gave some insights, thoughts and wisdoms, knowledge and understanding, about ancient wells of the Spirit.
Let me tell you what I have learned so far. These appear to be thin spots in the atmosphere between heaven and earth. Places in the world where angelic beings can move freely between the two and where people on earth realize a special connection with heaven and with the Lord. This is my two-day-old knowledge summary.
“Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.” Proverbs 8:34
I find a number of dots connecting in this new awareness. At Capturing Courage we have story after story through all the years of international ministry and of the Lord ministering to folks way beyond what we could have managed or even imagined.
In preparation for a house of prayer the Lord has been reminding me of what we have already been seeing and experiencing, with a finger pointing forward to expect more of the same but even more; the feeling has been that God wants to burst forth among us. To put it mildly.
“I realize I have been living a careless life. God wants intimacy with me. I am coming back to God. And we will do great things together,” a Pastor in Uganda
“I learned to touch the heart of God,” a Young Man who studied our Module ONE, College of Capturing Courage
“I have learned how to pray. I now feel connected to heaven.” a Wife to one of the pastors teaching our course.
Yes Lord! Yes.

Most recently, all of our praying and sitting with the Lord, all of our conversations and inquiry to the Lord, has been preparing our hearts for more of Him; he is touching deeper places, healing pre-verbal wounds, aligning our expectations with his great heart, and calling us to set down all resistance to his everlasting love.
The last two weeks on this road, camping, ministry time have quieted our hearts and minds to be open to more of the Lord’s touch within, a shifting of old stories and lies unto fresh truths; we are slowly becoming more of a match for the good things of God.
With all this in mind, it makes sense for God to be directing us to a spot on earth whereby all manner of the Lord in our midst can be multiplied out for his glory and for our future and delight; what a good, good God we serve!
We want more of the Lord. Come Lord Jesus Come.
Holy Spirit, be in our midst.
Father God, we love you.
God, it is you we want.
