**A Declaration and Prophetic Prayer by Sheila Rhodes
EZEKIEL 37: 1-5 ~ The hand of the Lord was upon me, and He brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of the valley: and it was full of bones. And He caused me to pass among them round about, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley: and lo, they were very dry. And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, Thou Knowest.” Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’ “Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘ Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life.’
There’s the SOUND OF REVIVAL coming forth from among God’s people! It’s an undeniable sound. It’s a sound coming forth from the heart and spirit to be revived again where the dry bones of life have turned to dust and are lying dormant. Breathe O Breath of God! Breathe O Breath of God … Breathe! The sound is a call to our “dry bones” to come alive. We prophecy to our dry bones and to our dead heart to come alive with God’s purpose and calling in our life. Cries are coming forth from the heart of God’s people and to the throne room – cries asking if lifeless things can possibly live again. Can Lifeless bodies battling diseases live again? Can Lifeless careers and destines come alive with meaningful purpose? Can Lifeless relationships not only survive but breathe life to those who are closely watching. Can Lifeless ministries and lifeless emotions come alive? Oh God, You and You alone can save us from a “lifeless” destiny and make us whole and alive in YOU. ONLY YOU GOD! By Your Spirit God…Only by Your Spirit!
“Holy Spirit breathe upon us with a fresh new anointing. Awaken our faith. With God ALL THINGS are possible…ALL THINGS! Restore the joy of salvation to Your people. You are the God of “NEW BEGINNINGS” and as we hear the Word of God it brings life so we can confidently call out to our dry bones and declare victory. We can prophecy to our “dry heart” to come alive again. And, as we call out to dry bones to live again, they will come together, come to life and stand up on their feet and declare there is NO DEFEAT. Life will come out of the ashes and come alive and live again! I prophecy to these “dead bones” and “dead hearts” to come alive once again!!!!!”
