(Dr. CM) I remember when the Lord first began to unfold the power of prayer with the harp to a small group of widow intercessors as we gathered to pray for Israel. I had received a vision showing me that the borders needed secured along with a strategy that I did not understand at the time. As we prayed in a small office in Knoxville throughout 2011, the Lord unfolded amazing insights, and Anna's Gate was birthed!
One insight was that the 22 strings on the Nevel harp was related to the 22 letters on the Hebrew alphabet, allowing the Word of God to be released through the frequencies as the harp was played! As we met to pray weekly God raised up individuals and business people to sponsor harps to cover 12 regions (or Gates) of Israel. By September of the same year we began to take harps in and connect with ministries and widows. The Lord also led for Peggy Powers to be our Ambassador there to teach the ladies how to play the harp and to lead worship at the Jerusalem House of Prayer for All Nations on the top of the Mount of Olives. Peggy was there for six years representing us and you as her sponsors, in which we thank you!
Many of you got to meet her recently at our "He's My Valentine" widows and singles banquet here in Knoxville as she welcomed you in the door with the sounds of Heaven on the harp! Peggy now resides here in Knoxville and plays regularly at Anna's Gate functions. She stays in communication and puts together monthly teachings on the Internet for our widow Intercessors in Israel keeping them in unity as they release the sound and the word! Our ministry to Israel continues and has expanded!!! (P.P.) As we have been studying at Anna's Gate's meetings about Ps. 91 and the "Secret Place", I have been reminded that the harp is a secret weapon for spiritual warfare. We now have all 12 prayer gates of Israel covered by 12 widows in Israel (who have Internet and understand English) making it easier to teach them from here.
We learn from I Samuel 16:23 that when David played the harp over Saul, he would be refreshed, be made well and the evil spirits would leave him. So as these 12 widows fulfill their purpose in playing their harps, they can be refreshed, release healing and see freedom take place in lives!
As watchmen for Israel, these ladies are establishing righteousness on the borders of their land! (Pro 15:25)
When these intercessor widows lean into their harps to play it is as they were resting on the heart of God. As the scripture says, their hearts sound like harps in mournful compassion over Israel's enemies. Therefore, like in Isaiah 16: 11-14, may Israel
's enemies not prevail and their efforts be useless. (Read this passage from the Amplified translation!)
What a great God we have that can give such a special and powerful mission to these widow harpists.
I will be helping these ladies join together in a harmonious focus to play a word using the Hebrew alef-bet that is on their harps. This month, we will start with the word for Love ("Ahava" in Hebrew). Love never fails and it is the greatest (I Corinthians 13:13).
(Dr. CM)I encourage you also to pray 1 Corinthians 13, especially verses 4-8 and let your "heart sound as a harp" in unity with these ladies! Don't be "harping" negativity, but instead "harp" from the secret place, listening to the heart of God! Let's establish the borders in our families, regions and nation too!
's CDs are available on our website along with the story of Israel that will inspire you and bring healing and wholeness! What an amazing strategy!
