25 November 2015 — I love to pray. And anyone who's effective in prayer does, too. Being effective means you get results and getting results will keep you in your prayer closet on the regular. I'm a witness.
A friend and I began praying for our businesses, etc. a bit ago and we're seeing the manifestations of what we pray each week. We try not to miss prayer dates. Even though we have a standing appointment with each other and The Lord, we adjust our schedules so we don't have to miss a session.
Consistency in prayer matters. Stamina, momentum, faith, and recognition in the spiritual realm must be built up. Also, the pray-ers have to get into one accord (Matthew 18:19, Acts 1:14). It's sad that so many churches don't teach effective prayer. I'm not sure why they don't ... except that they probably don't know how.
As a teacher myself, I realize it's not easy to teach effective prayer. I didn't learn in a church. I learned from being desperate and having to dig in and experience breakthrough in prayer firsthand. I speak about effective prayer all the time, but it's only going to be theory until we're praying and agreeing about a real-life situation. That's one of the reasons I love praying through seasons with others.
Each month I pray at least one person through some issue from crisis to deliverance. Sometimes it's multiple people. It's effective. Prayer gets things done.
Today's prayer was so good. I had a vision of a door being opened and another of snow falling. I looked up snow in a dream dictionary and it listed: pure/white, Robe of Righteousness, glory, refreshing, God's Word. Immediately Isaiah 55:10-11 came to mind ... Just like snow and rain come from heaven to water the earth and don't return to where they came from, God's Word cannot return void. Yes and amen!
I decreed agreement with that vision and the Ruach haKodesh spoke:
"Your agreement with Me will take you over the highest heights."
Then I saw a beautiful night sky similar in color to the pic above and two snow-capped mountains -- this reminds me of another snow-covered mountain dream I had before; I'll have to try and remember to share it here sometime. God has elevation, breakthrough and promotion in store for our lives and businesses. I'm excited and expectant.
You need agreement with others in prayer -- if you're married or have children you should be powerful in prayer because you've got built-in agreement. And you need to agree with God. That's a basic, but a huge portion of The Body isn't in agreement with God's Word or will. You can look at lives in comparison to the promises in the Logos and determine if someone agrees with God ... or not.

All of us have experienced or are still living with dysfunctional relationships. I spent a few sessions with a mentoring client once who was spinning their wheels trying to grasp abundant life while a root of unforgiveness from a parental relationship was still growing in their soul.
That doesn't work. I can't name anyone God has prospered who's still waiting for restitution from the hands of man. Plus, I know much about unforgiveness - because of my personal history - and what it does to hinder our access to Holy Spirit's power. I want too much; I can't afford not to forgive.
Dysfunctional relationships, even divinely ordained ones, don't glorify God. It's not God's will that there's strife day in and day out; matter of fact He has told us in the written Word that's demonic. God relationships are peaceful relationships. Therefore, we cannot use a divine connection as an excuse to continue in dysfunction. Steps have to be taken to bring deliverance and healing and that starts with at least one of the parties deciding to forgive and receive God's assistance.
If any of your high-stakes relationships are dysfunctional seek a mentor's assistance. You can also pray the following:
Holy Spirit, I thank You that I can call out to You and You'll answer me and show me great and mighty things. I ask by faith in this Word and in Jesus' name that you give me Your vision of what this relationship should look like. I reject my or any other vision for our relationship and receive Yours only. I confess and repent of my immaturity and sin and receive Your forgiveness. I desire to forgive _____ and myself for what's happened. I decree a shift in our relationship as I walk out Your vision for us in Christ's strength. I declare this by faith in Jesus' name. Amen.
Expect a vision or dream to follow giving you His vision for your relationship and then do your part to line it up with His will. Success and abundance will follow.
I woke up 11.18.15 at 3:32 a.m. with the Lord speaking about what the date meant. This was the 5th Wednesday morning in a row I've been awakened with Him giving me a message for The Body. The first message some weeks ago was ... actually, I'll do separate posts on the other messages.
Eleven represents spiritual transition - no, that's not the only meaning, just the one He spoke of to me today. The world and many people, especially those who have the Issachar anointing and know the times and seasons, are in a time of spiritual transition. It's a tight and uncomfortable place. Think about when a baby's in the birth canal - head down, it turns and has to squeeze through and it's traumatic for both parties. So, if you and what you're birthing are being squeezed right now, don't fret, that baby's still coming out!
Spiritual transition is also a decision to walk the narrow path. Transitions aren't wide places. They're narrow which is why they're so uncomfortable. During spiritual transitions you say no more to what everyone else is doing and yes to the narrow way which is the way of life.
That brings us to 18. Eighteen is l'chaim, life (again not the only meaning). Jesus came that we might have abundant life and the only way to achieve that is to be on the narrow path. Again I say don't worry about the things that fall off in this season because as you squeeze through to the door of abundance, you have to be willing to allow some things to fall off. My path is getting narrower and narrower, and that's alright with me. I know more of Jesus is on the other side of my door.
Fifteen represents triple grace. Praise God for grace! We access all of heaven via the pipeline of grace through faith. This is also known as resurrection and/or miracle power. So if you read this date this is what the Ruach haKodesh says:
This is a day of spiritual transition and as you choose to step away from your path and get on My narrow path, My way, you'll be squeezed into a new level of abundance in Christ. As you press forward, the weights that easily beset you will fall off and My abundant grace will elevate and prosper you.
The photo above is a screenshot of my phone immediately after I prayed and decreed the blessings attached to this revelation. God ALWAYS confirms His Word with signs and wonders following and He confirmed that everything I prayed and decreed 11.18.15 at 4:30 a.m. on the Grow Your Dreams Network weekly call was established in His grace. Yes and amen!
Wednesday 11 November 2015 3:35 a.m. - I just awoke from an awesome dream!
I was volunteering at a place that granted deliverance and miracles basically - they gave free passes for past mistakes. Meaning they erased mortgages, removed drug histories, healed diseases caused by human behavior, etc. I did such a great job as a volunteer I was promoted in one day and given a paid position. The miracles/deliverances weren't exactly free, though, the fee was $1 with the application.
I worked on a team of three - three is an excellent number, full of meaning - with a man and another woman. There were people everywhere in the building, inside and out, in lines, sitting on the floor/ground, waiting to get their free passes. We went and rounded up all those who checked Christian on their applications and took them into a conference room. The man said something about how the program worked and then the woman. Then I got up and started teaching on the SUPERNATURAL POWER of FORGIVENESS and HEALING the SOUL which was the last step they had to undergo to get their free pass of healing, deliverance, etc.
When I first began teaching - and these are believers, remember - they were talking, not paying attention, smirking and behaving as if THEY didn't need this revelation. Then the whole room got quiet, I had their undivided attention and the deliverances began. As I walked the room and taught I saw lights coming on behind worn out eyes as I shared. Even in the dream I could feel the anointing - my entire body was tingling with heaven's presence.
I'm so in my element when I'm teaching revelation. Talk about waking up pumped. I knew a lot of stuff about what I need to do in response as soon as I awoke from this dream, but it's also a confirmation that those who sowed $1 seeds and went through the process with me the other day are getting their miracles!!!
BT Dubbs, one of the three miracles I'm praying for in this season was delivered yesterday! Praise God from whom all blessings flow! It's miracle season!
JANUARY 2019: At this time I don't have a mailing list. My main website is ZariBanks.co.
Have you signed up for my mailing list? Well, what are you waiting for? Go to the right and sign up immediately.
I was against mailing lists for a long time, but then one of my mentors, Linda Dominique Grosvenor-Holland, actually showed me the value of it. I started the emails in June and didn't have great expectation for them, but the list is growing daily because of the wisdom I'm sharing with subscribers. BT Dubbs, I don't sell your information.
I offer freebies, discounts and first looks through the emails, but I'm also sowing revelation about how to break through in life and reach greater levels of deliverance. That's what being a Christian is all about - freedom. Yeshua gave all so we could be free mind, body, soul and spirit.
As you can see above I receive positive feedback because the information is benefiting others. And I respond to every email with a blessing because Jesus did the same. Remember when He healed 10 lepers but only one returned to thank Him (Luke 17;17)? Things like that set you apart and the honor causes a favor response.
If you'd like to read through some of the past emails, scroll down to the very bottom of the right-hand column and click the purple Deliverance at Your Fingertips pic (like the one above) to access the archives.
If you're worried that this will just be another thing cluttering up your inbox know that I don't send daily emails. Speaking of daily emails ... how do you feel about them? Comment below, please, 'cause I'm really interested to know how others view them. I don't really like dailies and I usually unsubscribe from anyone who sends them, but somehow many of the big-money companies and marketers do.
This is how I manage my inbox without being overwhelmed:
I hope to see you on the list soon. Great grace to you in Jesus' name.
I entered into a season of miracles today and I'm totes excited. I NEED about fifty-leven miracles right now and I decree it's time to receive.
You know what prompts the need for miracles, right? You get tired of the enemy taking or withholding your stuffs and decide that's enough. Then you put your faith to work and record your testimonies.
I'm going to take hold of some amazing things over the next two months and you can, too, if you're willing. In today's Deliverance at Your Fingertips email I included a coupon code for a FREE download of my spiritual growth course MIRACLES. Be sure to download it before the limit's reached and the code expires.
I put everything I learned about getting activated for miracles in this course so that you can seek, believe and be activated, too. And, this course is powerful. It really is. One of my favorite miracles ever was being served a civil arrest warrant during my custody battle, laying hands on it, decreeing it null and void and ripping it up in front of two wide-eyed onlookers.
Everyone has circumstances in life that only God can fix. We need miracles. Well, praise Him! ... miracles are right up His alley and He's willing to work them for and through you if you're interested. I'm a witness.
Download the course for FREE using the coupon code in the 11/1/15 email today. If you're not a subscriber, sign up and then start downloading the course for $5. It's worth skipping Starbucks one day this week to get this course. You NEED to be able to call forth and have miracles manifest in your times of dire straights.
If your life is always perfect and you never need miracles, just disregard everything I said and tell me where I can purchase your books on how to live a life where nothing ever goes wrong and you're always in control. On the other hand if you decide it's time to get activated for miracles in this season, be sure to keep in touch and share all the supernatural wonders Dad works in your life. If we all testify we can start a miracle revolution!
