I've found that sometimes it's easier to just let prayers play in the background, on repeat, if you can't devote a lot of time reading the prayers aloud. I recorded the business prayers for people who'd like to use that method.
Please enjoy, let them soak into your spirit and permeate your atmosphere, and share them with all of the believing business owners you know who are facing obstacles right now.
Big blessings to you!

I'm back with this. I know some probably think I'm a negative nelly but I am not. I'm a woman who reads The Bible and gets hype about God's shows of power and majesty and then looks at my life and is like ... Dude, what's really going on here?
That causes me to ask Him questions and keep on asking until I get answers. I also go Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek so I get better understanding of what is translated into English. We lose A LOT of what's truly in The Logos through translation. Study is required, folks.
MYTH: We can cancel every demonic attack if we're close to Holy Spirit.
TRUTH: Psalm 34:19, Romans 8:14; 32, 1 Corinthians 13:12, 2 Corinthians 4:8-9, 1 Peter 4:13 ... this is such a ridiculous statement I could list even more verses but I'm gonna stop. I will tell you to take note of Job's discourse, though, because there are several verses consecutively that contradict this myth.
This conversation actually began because they tweeted that nothing can stop God's plans for your life and if you know me, you should know I jumped on that one. I asked what the thoughts behind that statement were because a million different things can stop God's plans for our lives. The big thing being most DO NOT KNOW God's plans for our lives. He doesn't lay out every detail. He gives clues and makes us step out in faith, trying, failing, growing and then going back in for feedback. Over and over again throughout all of our years. I wish He would lay out everything for me so I could stop wondering and stop making mistakes. But The Lord and His creativity loves fixing and solutioning (yes, that's a Zari word) my messes.
The reply made sense. They don't want people focusing on the negative, they want positive thinkers. I totes get that. But even Mandisa came back and corrected in her song Unfinished. It's NOT easy to overcome every attack much less completely block every attack.
How close to Holy Spirit do you have to be so that you can cancel EVERY attack? I prayed in tongues 50 hours a month for three months - that wasn't close enough to stop every attack. How do you get THAT close? What is the process? Name one person who's lived this as reality. I asked the tweeter these things, too. I'm awaiting an answer. Let's go to The Word, which was made flesh in Yeshua.
Yeshua said that He gave us authority over all the power of the enemy and nothing will by any means hurt us (Luke 10:19), right? When I asked Holy Spirit what that meant I learned two things.
Psalm 34:19 shuts down that stupid statement all together. It's one of my go-tos because it's the story of my life. MANY are the afflictions (definition: something that causes pain or suffering) of the righteous (definition: morally right or justifiable, virtuous; aka close to Holy Spirit) but The Lord delivers them out of them all. It doesn't read, not even in Hebrew, many afflictions hit everyone except those who are close to Holy Spirit. No, dear ones, The Word actually tells us that we're gonna have lots of pain of suffering as people in close relationship with Holy Spirit.
A couple other verses I have listed above reference us being children of God and Him not sparing His own son. If we're sons of God and He doesn't spare us, we can't cancel every instance of hurt and harm. Also, we see in part. So what if Holy Spirit does show us how to cancel EVERY attack (I still need to know the entire life history of anyone who's experienced this as reality) because we only see in part, what if we miss something? Or don't understand an instruction? It happens all the time. I've matured and understand differently and betterer than I did in years past.
We're to share in Christ's sufferings. Hearing and reading about something does not compare to experiencing the same suffering. Yeshua was betrayed and doubted by most of His circle and everyone else just wanted something from Him. Those things hurt Him. He was a man. The Man of Sorrows. But, He had authority, earned authority, and maturity and didn't allow those hurts and harms to wound Him. And He was close to Holy Spirit. His death was a demonic attack, but it was God's plan, God's allowance and He submitted to it.
Paul didn't get everything right. Adam and Eve sure didn't get everything right and I don't know if there were two people ever closer to God than they were. They were in Eden with God physically coming down to chill every evening and they couldn't cancel satan's attack. Moses didn't get it right. David didn't. None of these Bible big names were able to cancel every attack. John got The Revelation of Yeshua and couldn't cancel every attack.
Again, you may be thinking I'm haggling over pennies, but I just want us believers to stop saying stupid stuffs and get real and get delivered so we can advance The Kingdom. Also, there are naive folks out there who repeat and believe that and it's just not true. We're supposed to be people of Truth.
I could go on and on about this but I'm gonna make one last point and close. How do we grow if we cancel every attack and are protected from everything? We can't. If you don't work muscles, they get flabby, soft. Listen ... I've tried to run from several battles in my life so I know what I'm talking about. But the problem with running from them is that they keep coming around again because God's plan requires me to face them head on, and use that experience as earned authority to advance The Kingdom. There are some attacks you can cancel. There are some attacks that God cancels without us even knowing because there's no benefit to The Kingdom if they came. Some attacks are specifically manufactured by God, with the demonic's limited allowance, because God needs warriors with authority in certain realms and He knows which warriors were created for each battlefield. Let's pray:
Heavenly Father, I lift up social media to You for cleansing and sanctification. We ask that You go back to it's inception and cover our sins of ignorance and failing to perform due diligence on our proclamations with Yeshua's Blood. I repent of all the times I presented my immature understanding as truth. I know You're a personal God and deal with us all individually, and if I misjudge someone whom You've given authority to cancel every attack, I repent. I would like that anointing and not have to fight so much myself. Nevertheless, not mine, but Your will be done. I ask this in Yeshua's Name and seal this prayer by Holy Spirit.

This is my Nana. She's got 88 years of service on the earth. The enemy's currently messing with her brain and I'm not really for that. I guess they weren't expecting me to hop on a plane at 5:50am, minister to her spirit and then hop back on at 6:32pm to return home. I'll do it again, too. When I see demonic theft, the fighter in me awakens. Those who intercede for/with me, please release a verbal agreement that she be continually strengthened in mind, body, soul and spirit with all the strength God's Spirit gives. Thanks!
I had a really cool dream earlier this week about three planes. But I'm gonna share some other things before I get into that.
First, the spirit of suicide visited me Tuesday afternoon - during the 2 o'clock hour, I believe. What had happened was … I was entertaining thoughts of despair. That says a mouthful already. But my mind (thoughts) moves so quickly, the spirit of depression doesn’t have much effect on me anymore. Because prophets are prone to depression I’ve learned not to allow my mind to sit on those kinda thoughts for long periods. I already have a Biblical principle that works and overcomes the enemy so my brain automatically kicks it into play. That stinker tried to pop in as fast as he could in an attempt to get a foothold. I listened to his rant (reasons I should just end it and be free) for about three seconds. This is one of those Matrix three seconds ‘cause the spiritual realm doesn’t have time like our dimension, and he was able to get off 2-3 sentences in that amount of time.
I was already transitioning from negative thoughts to Kingdom authority so I didn't even have to directly address the demon, he just left because I paid him no mind. I'm sharing this with you because that's new for me and to encourage you. Demons understand authority, and if you truly have Kingdom authority, you don't have to do a lotta hoopin' and hollin' for low-level demons because they can read you in the spiritual realm. They don't want to get punished so they'll leave on their own, like this itty bitty did, or with a quick legal reminder.
Oh, yeah, I passed 70 hours of tongues, too. That's probably why I had the Three Planes dream.
One more thing before I get to the dream. I was up praying this morning sometime before 3 a.m. and The Lord gave me some wisdom for Zayne. When I received the message it was an eloquent, little statement. I've forgotten the exact words but I have the gist and I'm sharing it for those of you who have children you're raising to honor God.
Don't get in the habit or practice of allowing others to convince you to do things. The enemy sees that agreement and writes a contract in the spiritual realm.
Actions and decisions have consequences - natural and spiritual - and the spiritual consequences are multiplied. Think before you act, and think about what you're thinking.
And this led me to pray:
Lord, don't let him re-empower any demonic stronghold or curse I've already fought to break.
Finally to the dream. A few nights ago I couldn't sleep so I was thanking God for my Psalm 139:16 timeline and book in heaven and for helping me to discover what's ordained for me. Then I dreamed the following:
I was in a small airplane. Not Cessna small, more like a Canadair Regional Jet (seats 50 or fewer). There were a few others in the plane, too, and it began to crash into the side of a mountain area that was absolutely beautiful, had a waterfall and a pinky-gold hue like the scenes when they're with the elves in LOTR FOTR - Rivendell. I said, "Oh, no ... we're gonna crash. Lord, are we gonna crash?" And we crashed. There was no blood or guts, it just crashed and switched to being inside the airport waiting for another plane. While in the airport I was looking for food (of course) and met the singers Ginuwine and Kelly Rowland (her, I have met IRL earlier in 2018).
Now a different group of people were with me and we were in a bigger plane. That one crashed, too. Not into a mountain, just on land, and again, there was no blood, guts or major panic. For the second time we were in the airport again waiting for another plane to take us to our destination. This time I met President Donald J. Trump, and I had a boyfriend with me.
We get on the third plane and it's huge (like a freighter) and had a stand-up observation cab in the back of the plane where the lavatories actually are. This time the group of people with me included family members. Before the plane took off I prayed and blessed it and it took off, soared and we were on our way.
Planes represent ministry or career and these different planes represent different seasons/cycles in my life; airports represent transition. The first small plane was my 8 years in public ed (2001-2009). That crashed into something wonderful because even though I was laid off, I went into business, ministry and homeschooled and The Lord sustained me.
The second and bigger plane were the foundational years of my maturing and ministry - the beautiful mess that God crafted with me from 2010-2017. The second crash wasn't as glamorous, though, because I'm no longer a (spiritual) child. It was a hard drop on land after success (flying high) with The Spirit because I needed an abrupt wake-up call (slap in the face if we're being honest, and we are) to suit up as a Kingdom Warrior and serve The King.
The last, big-big plane is the current cycle that I'm in. I took off and am flying high in safety because of the hours I've invested in The Kingdom praying in tongues and being matured in spirit so that I'm gaining the authority needed to establish this new business and ministry He's entrusted to me. And this time I have favor with family members who have faith in me coming alongside me that didn't in seasons past. That's fantastic on so many levels.
I give God praise, honor and glory for this new start to this new season, and I'm moving forward with legitimate earned authority and faith to live a life that proves He is Who He says He is. Ha'shem Yeshua!
P.S. As always I welcome your comments below. Blessings!
P.P.S. I just looked at my ordination certificate and giggled because of a convo I had with Sharon afterward. She asked how was it [to be ordained] and I answered I'm not doing anything differently than before. She answered:
"Now you can bury 'em and marry 'em ... and charge. That's different." 🤣😂🤣

Holy, holy, holy is The Lord God Almighty, Who was, is and is to come!
That's my favorite psalm, song and sentence of worship these days. I was out walking last night and saying it over and over, lifting up a wave offering and allowing my spirit to freely commune with The Godhead and the revelation began to flow. I'll share more about that another time. 😊
We've had two sessions of this season's breaking generational curses workshop. I've gotten great deliverance both times. I received an email yesterday from Session II that said, they got free from a 30-year issue last week. Praise God!
The firstfruit session is up for downloading if you're interested in this process. The Lord showed me how to make progress in deliverance because those videos on YT of mass deliverance weren't doing anything for me. And if you've been with me any length of time, you know I do NOT stop until I get some answers for my issues - no matter how long it takes; even if I have to stop and focus on other things for a while, I eventually pick up that issue again so I can be free. I'm not a quitter ... I'm a rester. 😂
So, in Session II, I asked what The Lord wanted me to work on and He came back with fear. GULP. I was actually struggling with fear at that moment (been under several weeks of attack; months first and then the focus of the attacks changed in the last few weeks - it's been rough) and how dare He call me on it. Anyhoo, The Spirit said 12, 13, 14, 30th generations and, of course, me, and demanded I deal with it.
SN: Something I've learned about The Father - one of the things - in this season, is that while Holy Spirit is a gentleman and doesn't force, God The Father, The Supreme Ruler and Lawgiver of The Universe, The Righteous Judge, gives commands, demands and judgments without hesitation. So you do it. He knows Who He is and what all He owns and He doesn't have to be pc; He can and does absolutely boss you around. Like a boss. In the past I've said God doesn't force you to act, it's always a choice. Yes, it is your choice to obey, but when He says, "Deal with it," you feel the this-is-not-an-option-or-suggestion anointing and you move. Most of the time.
I addressed the curse of fear and while I did, I admitted that I wasn't even sure I was confessing wholeheartedly because I was currently being threatened on several sides by humans, some hidden, who technically could cause me harm. Well, let me tell you within two days revelation came of who was harassing me behind the scenes, and I started praying for them, of course. The second day I prayed for them, The Lord broke me through with authority, and I'll share more about that another time.
I pray you're getting deep deliverance that's tailored to your family line and not stuck without movement because someone's trying to deliver you from their own experience instead of your trouble areas.
Happy & Blessed 2018, dear ones!
I took my first fruit flight and all went well. I dedicated my travels for this year to The King and Kingdom, blessed the Bombardier Q400 I was on and rejoiced at ways The Lord showed up.
First of all, the flight was overbooked the night before which is never good for someone, and that someone is sometimes me and was me December 30th - two flights in a row. I headed to the airport at 5:15a anyway loosing angels to go before me and asking The Father to make a way where there seemed to be no way. But I also told him, "Lord, if you don't want to, that's fine. I have to stop expecting You to deliver me out of everything I get into and giving me everything I want."
That's big growth, bt dubbs. I've been sharing how He's been maturing me here and there - some on the Prophecy blog and a bit on Zari Banks, mostly with those I'm mentoring and/or praying with because I've invited them along on the journey to deep deliverance.
Got to the airport, on time ... not too early, not too late ... time to go to the Alaska Lounge for a light breakfast and then down to the gate. Got on flight 2206, seat 7E, door 7. I thanked The Lord as I walked to the plane and smiled at my seat and door - 77. Holy Spirit's been requesting my attention using 77 since late October.
As often happens when flying between the two cities I reside in, the pilot announced there'd be turbulence because of the weather - clouds, rain and wind. As I've grown accustomed to when flying, I put on anointing oil, covered the plane, crew and passengers with The Blood of Yeshua, loosed The Hosts of Heaven to go before us and clear a pathway through the sky for a safe and event-free flight and put on my headphones to rest for 30 minutes.
God has graced me with authority and angels over the air when I'm flying. Not sure why He has, but I appreciate it because I used to be a nervousy flyer. Years ago I was terrified at takeoff, landing and at any bump or noise in between. I got delivered from unforgiveness in 2012 and the fear of flying, snakes and (most) spiders - still don't like to be startled - was defeated. Perhaps He did so because He's the one who asked me to travel. Maybe because He knows my history and knew that I started traveling regularly in 2017 begrudgingly. I have come to love traveling, but the grace, authority and angels are still available to me and I'm thankful to Him for that favor.
In my past immaturity, I thought I would be able take this anointing for safe flying and release it to you to receive by faith. I know now that's not always how God works things for us. He hasn't given me any instruction to release this grace to anyone else, and as I said above I don't know what's required to qualify for it. Maybe I'll ask Him sometime this year, and let you know what I learn - got a ton going on right now so don't have a time frame. It's a grace that He released at His volition, which I never requested, expected or knew was a possibility. What I do know about Yahweh is that you can ask Him for anything. You may not get it, but you can sure ask without fear or hesitation ... and ask in faith.
What I can do is bless you.
I bless you and your year 2018. I bless your travels and cities. I pray you hunger for deep deliverance and grow in intimacy with The Godhead. I declare this all by faith in Yeshua and seal it by Holy Spirit.
Registration for Breaking Generational Curses Closes January 12, 2018.
EXCERPT: O Lord, Deliver Them: Warring for Unsaved Loved Ones is a prophetic intercessory assignment. God ordained this book, that you’d read it, and has plans for your loved ones to enter the Kingdom in fullness. All faith, no doubt. Hebrews 4:14 tells us Jesus is the High Priest of our confession who has gone into the presence of God, therefore, if you confess His truth in faith He is your witness in the Court of Heaven to get you a verdict in your favor. All faith, no doubt.
WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID: I cried as I read O Lord, Deliver Them: Warring for Unsaved Loved Ones because I could feel the joy and peace my loved ones will feel as they walk in new and deeper levels of relationship with Yeshua...and also because my own faith and prayer life were being challenged and strengthened as I read. God Bless you for your obedience, Zari. So thankful for the gift you are to The Body.
