The Vision is going to be key in these last days.
It is a place where the sound of the Spirit is released…
a place of signs, wonders and healing…
a place of intentional outreach, discipleship and training…
a place of refuge being established right now – the epicenter of Father’s love and His supernatural power that will change and influence individuals, regions and nations of the world.

“Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring – …he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.” Romans 4:16a, 20 & 21

When Love Becomes an Idol ~ by Gerri

        For many years, I walked in huge co-dependency mostly with my kids, but also in other relationships as well.  I have discovered in my healing journey that this is not uncommon when there is an angry spouse in the household.  We co-dependents often over compensate with our love to try and make up to our children for the lack of expressed love that fails to come when one mate is angry and disengaged.   We should not, however, use that as an excuse for our own failures and sin.  […]

Acquiring Humility by Al Ells, M.C.

Here is an excellent article by our dear friend and mentor, Al Ells, of Leaders That Last, Mesa, AZ.   

“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

There once was a parishioner who received recognition for being the humblest man in the church. As an award, the congregation gave him a pin to wear. The following Sunday, the pastor wore his new pin, and the congregation took it away from him for being too proud. Sometimes humility is like this: As soon as we think we are humble, we are not.

Humility can conjure up depressing images of self-abasement […]

The Status Quo is Being Challenged by Roger

       Have you noticed?  Are you aware that major areas of life as we have known it in America are being challenged?  It seems more and more of us are fed up with the same ole – same ole and we want change.  That fits well with our Heavenly Father because He wants change also.  In fact, He has already begun the change in the Spirit realm and is moving ahead into His new season for humanity.  We humans have choices to make.  We can choose to follow God into our destiny with Him and the unknown of this new season, or we can choose to continue down the path of what we have known and feel safe and comfortable with.  This is a serious choice.  Following after God leads to life and blessing, but following our own path […]

Decisions That Define Us

From time to time there is an article that crosses my path that totally arrests me in the power of the Holy Spirit.  The following article, “Decisions That Define Us” written by Dave Crone of The Mission in Vacaville, CA is one of those articles.  What follows in written form describes our hearts here at PITFH.  We hope that you will be as blessed as we have been to see in print what we feel expresses the heart of our Father for His church today.  Blessings,  Roger […]

Social Insecurity by Gerri

We have often been asked why we are not doing any social networking.  There are three primary reasons.  The first two are important and third is really at the heart of this ministry.
1)  We don’t have the time administratively to oversee anything but email at this time.  Perhaps in the future when we have more help either through volunteers or paid staff we will be able to take on ‘facing and tweeting!’ 
2)  We have been concerned about privacy issues with social networking.  Consumer Reports June 2010 issue had a great article on page 24 and it seems to confirm our concerns.  The report states that 2 out of 3 US households use social networks.  They did a survey  of 2,000 online households this past January and found the following:

*  Within the past year, 9% of social network users […]

Authority vs Dominion by Roger and Gerri

As we move further into the Mercy Season of the church which began in February 2004, we are experiencing something that has brought us great freedom from the laws and rules of the preceding Ruler Season.  Let us begin sharing what we have experienced by first defining the two seasons.

About 1900 – 2004
Characteristics: Church learned spiritual warfare ~ build and fight; forceful evangelism; religion, law and rules governed the church; 70’s and 80’s stressed unity; one stayed in their denomination; institutional unity; birth of intercessors; pastors initially very threatened by intercessors; intercessors began cross pollination across denominational lines which has enriched the church; different streams began to emerge; defeat of tribalism in the Body of Christ; emergence of phones and internet gave way for communication of horizontal nature; initiative in the marketplace and […]

The Dream Giver – Book Review

The Dream Giver – Following Your God Given Destiny by Bruce Wilkinson – Published by Multnomah Books

Not long ago a prayer ministry client gave us a copy of The Dream Giver.  She told us at the time that she felt we absolutely MUST read this book.  She was right.  For every person who has ever hoped or believed that they could make an impact for God in His Kingdom with their dream or vision, this book is a must read.

You will travel with Ordinary as he embraces his big dream.  You will go with him as he leaves his comfort zone and meets Bullies along the way.  You will walk with him through his wilderness experience and then finds the Dream Giver in Sanctuary.  You will travel with Ordinary as he faces his giants and then experience exhilaration as he thrives in his […]

Prayer Ministry Client Excells in Father’s Love

Recently we had the privilege of ‘graduating’ a client from prayer ministry.  She spent approximately 4 months in weekly sessions working through her strongholds and woundedness issues and learning how to receive the Father’s unconditional love for her.  She has made wonderful progress and is totally enjoying her new life of freedom.

She has now returned to college to get her degree.  One of her first assignments was to write a paper and explain which affected her most growing up, the environment or heredity.  We were so moved by her writing, that we asked if we could post it here.  With B’s permission, here it is:

I read in the Bible a short time ago
How the sins of the father they do afect us, don’t you know
For years Momma, I wondered
Why my love for you was not strong
And then I discovered it’s because […]

Forgiveness & Healing – by Gerri

         Time after time we hear in prayer ministry, “Roger and Gerri, I truly thought I’d forgiven ____ for their sin against me.  Why don’t I sense that forgiveness has taken root in me?  Why does it seem that I come back around this mountain repeatedly, only to meet myself with the sense that the issue is still unresolved?

            The answer to this timeless merry-go-round is that forgiveness and healing are two different issues.  Forgiveness is a simple act of our will (choice) to forgive the person who hurt us.  It can be as straightforward as, “Please forgive me for stepping on your foot” or as difficult as “Please forgive me for committing adultery” or some other very deeply wounding act.  Perhaps your child has violated you and dishonored you in some way.  It could be […]

Letting Go ~ Gerri

       One of the most difficult circumstances in my life has been the lesson of learning to let go.  Addicted to relationships and the mercy/people person that I am has often led me down a pathway that has caused me much pain and heart ache in my life.  But through all the pain and heartache, I am learning how to let go in a healthy way foregoing pain for freedom, woundedness for forgiveness and experiencing great peace and rest.  As I have worked on my legitimacy issues, I have come into a new place in relationship with my Father and in so doing, I believe I have discovered a great key to life…learning how to let go and release others to freely move on to their own destinies without me!  It’s really not about them moving away, it’s about […]

The Price We Pay ~ Roger

It is sad that many Christians believe that living a Godly life, a life of righteousness, has attached to it too big a price to pay, so they choose to live a worldly, self-centered life.  They do not realize how big a price they are paying by rejecting the life that Father has made available for them.  They have settled for a CZ in place of a diamond, fool’s gold in place of real gold, counterfeits instead of what is real.  They continue to chase the all elusive happiness instead of enjoying the life giving fruit of Father’s love, the peace of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.  What a tragedy!  What a waste!  […]

A Life Renewed!

Below is a testimony we received recently.  It is a wonderful glory story of the love of the Father working profoundly in a life that was broken and lifeless…until the ministry of Jesus, the power of the Holy Spirit,  and the love of the Father came to heal the broken hearted and set the captive free.

Success – Ours or His ~ by Gerri

It is important to realize that God does not count success as we count success. In our culture today, we are bombarded by things that the world calls success. We often term success by an individual’s wealth, by the kind of vehicle they drive, by the neighborhood they live in, by the labels of the clothes they wear, by the country club they belong to, by the company they work for, or by the number of friends they have. We must remember that success is not measured by what we have; it is measured by who we are. […]

The Truth in Strange Places ~ Wayne Jacobsen

Recently professional golfing legend Lee Trevino was asked what is the greatest lesson he’s tried to pass on to his children. I loved his answer.

“One thing I’ve told them is that your word is your bond. That once you’ve lost your word, you’ve lost all your dignity. So when you tell someone that you’re going to do something, you do it. Regardless if it costs you. And it will cost you money sometimes, cost you time. But you gave them your word.” […]

A Clear Warning ~ by Roger

                I do not claim to be a prophet and I hesitate to say ‘thus saith the Lord’ in concern that I might misrepresent Him.  I do not want to be a fear monger, but I also do not want to fail to warn the Body of Christ if I feel the Holy Spirit is speaking and we must hear what He is saying. 

            When we received the following words by Jack Hayford, John Paul Jackson and Reece Bandi, we realized that what they have written confirms what I have journaled privately from Father over a number of months.  As Gerri and I discussed the situation we remembered a revelation from Jack Frost in 2003 that we have included here.  Though our lives may be disrupted in the coming days and months and even become very difficult,

The Next Level~Beware of the Leaven

The following two articles by Ron McGatlin are very good reads.   He says, “The next level to which God is calling His people is the oneness that results from knowing the Son of God in such intimacy that we become perfected spritual beings to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.”  This is our prayer.  We hope it is yours as well.

The Next Level

By Ron McGatlin

Crystal clear spiritual clarity comes through perfected purity and holiness.

Perfected purity and holiness comes by the resurrected life of Christ replacing our crucified life. (Rom 6:5, Gal 2:20, Rom 6:11-13, Col 1:27)  

The next level to which God is calling His people is the oneness that results from knowing the Son of God in such intimacy that we become perfected spiritual beings to the measure of the stature of the fullness of […]

A Note From Roger & Gerri

We have moved into a new season.  During the time leading up to September 18th we found ourselves very tired physically from the spiritual battle we had been waging.  The enemy was doing his best to discourage and dishearten us…to get our focus off of Father and onto our circumstances.  Does that ever happen to you?  Thank God for our Prayer Allies!

To Love With Father’s Love or Mine ~ Gerri

One of the primary struggles I have had in my life is that of being co-dependent…which is ‘to love people, places and things more than you love God.’  Co-dependency simply put is love with a hook on it.  Those who struggle with this emotional malady are giving love to get love in return.  The enemy uses this form of ‘love’ to skew our mindsets and whisper in our ear that if we don’t give away this kind of love, we will most certainly loose relationship with the one we are trying to ‘fix’ with our love.  Co-dependency is fear based, fear motivated idolatry.  […]

Father is ALWAYS in Control ~

A man from Norfolk , VA called a local radio station to share this on Sept 11th, 2003,  TWO YEARS AFTER THE TRAGEDIES OF 9/11/2001. His name was Robert Matthews… These are his words: A few weeks before Sept. 11th, my wife and I found out we were going to have our first child. She planned a trip out to California to visit her sister. On our way to the airport, we prayed that God would grant my wife a safe trip and be with her. Shortly after I said ‘amen,’ we both heard a loud pop and the car shook violently. We had blown out a tire. I replaced the tire as quickly as I could, but we still missed her flight. Both very upset, we drove home. […]

The Storms That Come Our Way…

      A  little girl walked to and from school  daily.  Though  the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to  the elementary school. 
      As  the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up,  along with lightning.  The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked  home from school and she feared the electrical  storm might harm her child.  
      Full  of concern, the mother quickly  got  into her car and drove along  the route to her child’s school.  As  she did, she saw her little girl walking  along.  At  each flash of lightning, the child would stop,  look up, and smile.  Another  and another flash of lighting followed quickly  and with each, the little girl would  look at the streak […]
