Praying Across Canada 2022

I am nearing one-week into a month’s-long journey, Praying Across Canada. The compelling of the Lord unto prayer, a common lament within an identification with the sins of our land and people, have been upon me for a few weeks now. I do not understand prayer to be, ‘Please God do such and such’. Rather,Continue reading “Praying Across Canada 2022”

Houses of Prayer

One of our colleagues at Capturing Courage, is preparing to head off on an overland road and ministry journey within his own country. The preparation for this, in a nutshell, has been two years of struggling, then rejoicing, turned towards the Lord. At Capturing Courage, the year 2020 began with severe difficulties. The early monthsContinue reading “Houses of Prayer”

Come, Let us Go

“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord”  but God, I am weak.  “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord” but God, I am a sinner.  “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord” but God, I am not good enough “Come, let us goContinue reading “Come, Let us Go”

In Prayer

There is a basic strategy of spiritual authority within the Kingdom of God that we have learned at Capturing Courage. It begins with the principles: Hungering for More of the Lord. Coming on the Inside. Identifying with the Sins of a Region or Nation. Taking Responsibility, Confession & Repentance, of that Sin. Praying it ThroughContinue reading “In Prayer”

Some Background Story

The Lord is bringing our thinking down to the core of hospitality as the primary movement at House of Prayer. We have been recalling what the Lord does from this place of abiding, resting, inviting, and making space for God. There has been swaths of movement from the Holy Spirit all through our decade ofContinue reading “Some Background Story”

By Prophecy & Prayer

Capturing Courage International Ministries has been led by prophecy and prayer all the years. You can find our long history HERE. Capturing Courage is primarily a prophetic and apostolic work. Meaning, the impact of the Lord flows out as a function of intimacy with him, rather than as a function of projects. The Lord isContinue reading “By Prophecy & Prayer”

A Birthright of Prayer

It was back in 2013, late in the year, that I was in Mozambique for a few weeks time. That was my fourth ministry trip, having been to Uganda three-times the previous years. I landed after a long travel upon which we began to travel even more. Mozambique is a big country and our eight-hoursContinue reading “A Birthright of Prayer”

Movements of Prayer

It’s been a week of contemplation and prayer, inquiring of the Lord and of discerning next steps. We have campsites (and a house-sitting) that will take us to September 6th. This sounds a long ways off, but is only a few weeks. The time is flying by. Our prior week, written about HERE, has beenContinue reading “Movements of Prayer”

Ancient Wells of the Spirit

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 orContinue reading “Ancient Wells of the Spirit”

Different Kinds of Rules

It’s been a good week. On Wednesday we drove north to Campbell River and to a nearby provincial campsite. All reservable sites were taken but there were first-come-first-served sites were a possibility. We found a beautiful spot at the base of a hill covered by majestic firs and maples; with trunks big as two folksContinue reading “Different Kinds of Rules”
