Your Word is a healing medicine I swallow without an offended heart. (Psalm 141)

To You Father God I come.
I turn from sin and receive the fruit of Holiness available to me in Christ Jesus;
I turn from fear and receive the fruit of Courage available to me in Christ Jesus;
I turn from death and receive the fruit of Life available to me in Christ Jesus;
I turn from anger and receive the fruit of Peace in Christ Jesus.

Together we ask that Your holy hedge be placed around our members.

We bind on earth as it is in heaven, in Christ Jesus, the covid-19 virus.
By faith, we hear of its sudden expiry.

We ask You, Yahweh, to release Your angels to fight until the demons released are overpowered and defeated.

We worship You throughout our day giving thanks for Your Son, Jesus Christ.

Blessings, Michael and Esther Cowley
Sanctuary Elders.

Hidden in Christ

Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honour at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory.
Colossians 3 v 1 - 4 - NLT

“But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."” - John 4 v 23-24.

January 26th - 28th PRAISE - Hallal

Prayer Verse: Hallal is a primary Hebrew root word for praise. Our word "hallelujah" comes from this base word. It means "to be clear, to praise, to shine, to boast, show, to rave, celebrate, to be clamorously foolish. Psalm 113:1-3 “Praise (hallal) ye the Lord, praise (hallal) o ye servants of the Lord, praise (hallal) the name of the Lord”.

Prayer Release: King Jesus how mighty and worthy of praise are You alone! We magnify you! We lift our hands in adoration of all You have conquered and completed! We raise our arms and hands and declare the wonders that we have yet seen, that You have promised us in You and through You!

January 29th - 31st PRAISE -

We say yes to the exchange again of our lives for You. We fling our hands and arms and beings deeper into You. You are so safe Jesus.

February 1st - 3rd PRAISE - Towdah

Prayer Verse: Towdah comes from the same principle root word as yadah, but is used more specifically. Towdah literally means, "an extension of the hand in adoration, avowal, or acceptance." By way of application, it is apparent in the Psalms and elsewhere that it is used for thanking God for "things not yet received" as well as things already at hand. Psalm 50:14 Offer unto God praise (towdah) and pay thy vows unto the Most High

Prayer Release: By faith we take hold of all of our inheritance that we have in You and through You. We take up courage and brave hearts to see what we haven’t seen yet in You, to hear the delights of Your voice, to understand the mysteries You have hidden for us to find.

Prayer Verse: Shabach means, "to shout, to address in a loud tone, to command, to triumph." Psalm 47:1 O clap your hands, all peoples; shout (shabach) to God with the voice of joy (or triumph).

Prayer Release: We send out and up a mighty sound, a shout of delight! For He has overcome! Every obstacle, every blocked path, He unlocks doors that no man can shut and He alone locks doors that no one can open! Jesus show us the way, show us the path, we want You! We desire You! May shouts for You arise!

Blessing: We bless people with triumph, endless, endless, endless, endless triumphs! May people become so filled with You that out of them bursts song, bursts words and acts of outrageous kindness and love! We bless people with the truth of the ability to be a royal son/a royal daughter in You!

May praise arise and may people say “Jesus is King”


February 7th - 8th PRAISE - Barak Prayer Verse: Barak means "to kneel down, to bless God as an act of adoration, to salute." Psalm 95:6 O come let us worship and bow down; let us kneel (barak) before the Lord our maker.

Prayer Release: We speak to pride and say kneel to Jesus, we say to hopelessness, kneel to Jesus! We say to sickness, kneel to Jesus, we say to idolatry, kneel to Jesus! We thank you for the ability You give us to surrender, that it is Your kindness and love that lead us to Your feet! We thank you for the gift of surrender!

Mountains and Plains: We know one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that You are Lord! We say make us a movement that is expectant of that very reality in our midst, in our time! Help us Holy Spirit be outstanding stewards of kindness and love, that these hills and plains may be found to be so full of Your kingdom! We are so excited Lord Jesus!

sanctuary blue mountains

Kingdom Shepherds

sanctuary blue mountains

of the reclamations coming forth in this hour from the kingdom
revelation is true shepherds. It’s actually the reinstating of biblical
pastorates and therefore re-emerging of the shepherds (pastors). We need
to see this office established back into its rightful place in the body
of Christ and therefore the church.

It is past the time needed
to move on from a one-fold church where the ‘pastor’ is dominant in
their role and see the shepherd ministry reclaimed for what it is;
a ministry of standing between sheep and wolves, a ministry of true
biblical paradigms of humility and love, a ministry that is PART of the
true leadership that in not only needed in this hour but without it the
church at large will continue to limp, when it is called to run.

Around the globe right now and from the early church, the Holy Spirit
has been calling His church to be multi-faceted and led by men and women
who are in complete unity, making room for each others errors in the
bond of peace. It is exciting to see Kingdom Shepherds arising from
places of purity, prayer and righteousness in Christ Jesus. The hour is
upon us. (Ephesians 4)

Sanctuary Blue Mountains - Wonder

The Wonder

Inspired by Jesus

Luke 10 (18). Acts 3 (1 - 10). Jesus died and was resurrected for so much more than just a place in heaven for every human being. He was literally re-establishing what life was like before sin entered the world. A restoration of an eden-like state in the cosmos. As people follow Jesus and He appears and re-appears, earth is becoming more like heaven each moment. In this reality, physical, emotional and spiritual healings take place, deliverance happens and people are set free. You are invited to this table with Jesus! This is good news and great theology!


Hermeneutics is the study of the principles and methods of interpreting the text of the Bible. At Sanctuary we believe wholeheartedly in ensuring that correct, Holy Spirit inspired theology is at the forefront of what we say and how we operate. Jesus is reclaiming this across the earth for Himself in the age we are living in. It is so wonderful. Truth and revelation joining together in a divine symmetry.

Eyewitnesses of His Majesty - 2 Peter 1
(Matthew 17:1-13; Mark 9:1-13; Luke 9:28-36)
16 For we did not follow cleverly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For He received honour and glory from God the Father when the voice came to Him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”b 18 And we ourselves heard this voice from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.
19 We also have the word of the prophets as confirmed beyond doubt. And you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture comes from one’s own interpretation. 21 For no prophecy was ever brought forth by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. Eyewitnesses of His Majesty.

His Heart is For You

“O God, hear my prayer. Listen to my heart’s cry. For no matter where
I am, even when I’m far from home, I will cry out to you for a father’s
help. When I’m feeble and overwhelmed by life, guide me into your
glory, where I am safe and sheltered. Lord, you are a paradise of
protection to me. You lift me high above the fray. None of my foes can
touch me when I’m held firmly in your wrap-around presence! Keep me in
this glory. Let me live continually under your splendor-shadow, hiding my life in you forever. Pause in his presence”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭61:1-4‬ ‭TPT‬‬

So much love to all those today who are feeling overwhelmed— I pray you feel His warmth wrap around your shoulders tonight- ?


Love Cath. X
