“For nothing will be impossible with God. And Mary said, “Behold, the bondslave of the LORD; may it be done to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her” (Luke 1:37-38, NASB).
As the year unfolded into a series of relentless and unprecedented storms, Mary's prayer became my prayer. What one learns in storms is rarely learned in any other season of our lives. During any storm it is always best to be in the same boat as Jesus. At the height of the multiple storms, the LORD inquired of me, "Will you worship me no matter what?" As a follower and disciple of Jesus since my childhood, I simply answered, "Yes, LORD, I will worship you no matter what!"
1996 - A Year of Birth!
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations. Then I said, 'Alas, LORD GOD! Behold, I do not know how to speak, Because I am a youth.' But the LORD said to me, 'Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ Because everywhere I send you, you shall go, and all that I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, For I am with you to deliver you,' declares the LORD" (Jeremiah 1:5-8, NASB).
The name Jennifer means "to be set apart" in the Hebrew language. Although, I was not a youth in my chronological years, I felt completely incapable of what the LORD asked. In the previous year, I became introduced to prophetic worship instruments and found them to be an unknown foreign language. Then HE asked me to make one, which I did not know how to do. I sat on the floor of my furniture-less apartment the consequence of a previous unprecedented storm and waited. HIS presence tangibly arrived. He instructed me with every single meticulous detail of creating Prophetic Glory Rings with HIS own unique pattern. Over the course of the year, I made eight personal Glory Rings, sitting at HIS feet, listening to HIS voice, embraced by HIS presence. The Holy Spirit requested that I remove all secular media influences from my life (movies, newspapers, magazines, books, TV) and to just spend time studying the Scriptures and worshiping my KING JESUS. It was an in-depth season of HIS impartation. The Holy Spirit mentioned that there were some Integrity Tests in my future which were related to my gainful employment situations. Sometimes when a person stands for truth, they are terminated from employment in hopes that what they uncovered will remain covered.
In December, the Holy Spirit asked me to make 50 Finger Glory Rings (one-inch brass rings with 8 ¼ and 1/8 inch ribbons) and to give with a "very rough draft" of the booklet, Have Glory Ring will Travel! instead of the traditional holiday greeting cards. Surprised and overwhelmed by HIS request, it was January 1997 before the assignment was completed. The Holy Spirit spent the next two years teaching me how to give prophetic words (words of encouragement, exhortation and edification) over Glory Rings - HIS Prophetic Songs in color, type and symbol before any were released to Nations in 1998.
1997 - A Year of HIS Introduction!
“Then Moses said to the LORD, “Please, LORD, I have never been eloquent, neither recently nor in time past, nor since You have spoken to Your servant; for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” The LORD said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who make him mute or deaf, or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” But he said, “Please, LORD, now send the message by whomever You will” (Exodus 4:10-13, NASB).
The LORD’s question of “Will you worship me no matter what?” continued to envelop me and then He added another question, “Jennie, will you count the cost of serving Me and serving Me alone?” Three years previously, in the summer of 1994, I sustained two vehicle wrecks within 48 hours leaving me with a myriad of injuries including a brain trauma. The LORD asked me to write my first book, Have Glory Ring will Travel! with a brain trauma and other complex physical injuries. After three years of writing on borrowed computers and hundreds of revised pages it was completed in 1999. About half-way through the writing, a computer virus destroyed the document and I began again. After over three years of countless late nights when it was finally finished for the second time, the book (original copies, back-up disks, etc.) were completely destroyed through the betrayal of a trusted friend. When I recovered from that devastating shock, five months later the Holy Spirit asked me to begin again. After the book was completed and the copyright application mailed, the LORD provided a computer for the ministry in the summer of 2000. The LORD did not say it would be easy, He said that He would walk with us. He is faithful to HIS word.
Resurrection Sunday weekend my sister, Susan went home to be with JESUS after a two-year battle with ovarian cancer. I continued to create and give away finger Glory Rings with prophetic words as friends sent in requests for their friends. After months of seemingly unrelenting pressure from a prophetic friend, I finally consented to share about the Glory Rings the day following an Aglow meeting in Vernonia, Oregon. A couple of brief hours in a summer afternoon held the first Glory Ring Class in June 1997. Later in the year, I attended my first Aglow International Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana - the Holy Spirit opened my heart to see the multi-faceted colors of HIS Nations. The second Glory Ring Class was held in Corvallis, Oregon at the close of 1997.
1998 - A Year of HIS Infiltration!
“Incline your ear and come to Me. Listen, that you may live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, according to the faithful mercies shown to David. Behold I have made him a witness to the peoples, A leader and commander for the peoples. Behold, you will call a nation you do not know, and a nation which knows you not will run to you, Because of the LORD you GOD, even the Holy One of Israel; For He has glorified you. Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near" (Isaiah 55:3-6, NASB).
As I passionately worshiped ELOHIM, this ministry was birthed, even though being an ordained minister was not something I personally desired. The Holy Spirit filled me with contentment and peace as I worked full-time as a HR Administrator during the day and created Prophetic Glory Rings in the evenings. As I did not see myself in ministry, I did not retain any records of the first 600 - 700 Prophetic Glory Rings with hand-written prophetic words that were given to friends, and friends of friends. The first week of 1998 held the first Glory Ring Class in Bend, Oregon. Two more Integrity Tests arrived unexpectedly. Flexibility, perseverance, accountability, diligence, dependability, honesty, and integrity are attributes the LORD counts on when one is committed to serving HIM. February through August, I facilitated a Glory Ring Class the first weekend of every month in my small duplex. In August, the first Nations Glory Rings were created for China, Africa, Russia and the USA, followed by the first City Glory Ring for Portland, Oregon. As I purposed each day to walk in complete obedience to HIS voice, I found that HIS presence, anointing and grace surrounded me. "Will you worship me no matter what?" resounded daily in my spirit. To HIM alone be the Glory and Honor.
1999 - A Year of HIS Invitation!
“But now, thus says the LORD, your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you” (Isaiah 43:1-2, NASB).
Each year in ministry holds a unique set of challenges and victories as the LORD is faithful to refine HIS own. The beginning of 1999 embraced my only daughter's wedding ~ Our FATHER's beautiful masterpiece. The Ministry Advisory Board moved forward with an application for non-profit status and applied for a tax-exempt status (501 (c) 3) which required Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws. Spring included a surprise invitation to an Apostolic Conference in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The LORD asked me to take 12 Glory Rings for States and Nations. Gingerly, I entered the conference with a large purple duffle bag and waited upon the LORD. I was the only person among the 3000 in attendance that danced in worship with worship instruments. True to HIS Word God brought 12 individuals to connect with me to receive the Nations and States Glory Rings that I took to the conference. At the time, it was an extreme act of faith on my part. Fall brought an invitation to Nashville, Tennessee to minister in prophetic dance. As usual, HE extended HIS grace and mercy as I purposed to walk in obedience to my KING. The LORD graciously continued to open the doors of ministry providing personal invitations to each place as a confirmation of HIS will. Then another surprise invitation arrived to attend the Aglow International Conference in Florida - all expenses prepaid by one of HIS own. Even though as an introvert, my comfort zone is at home making worship instruments, surrounded by HIS Glory, HE opened the door for five Glory Ring Workshops to be held this year. Glory Rings were created for 15 Nations and 7 states of America. Our HGRM Prayer Shield began this year with 12 intercessors! A huge miracle from my perspective! Glory to GOD!
2000 - A Year of HIS Glory!
“And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us" (Romans 5:3-5, NASB).
The beginning of 2000 held the same two questions from the LORD, “Will you worship me no matter what?” and “Will you count the cost of serving me and serving me alone?” And then He added a third question, “Will you serve My People no matter what?”
Challenges continue to arise that require diligent, creative overcoming. As it became evident that my personal income is not be enough to sustain HGRM. After giving away copies of the book, Have Glory Ring will Travel for some time, it was decided that a purchase price was placed upon the books to help offset the increasing costs of printing. We continued to give books to those attending Glory Ring Workshops and those receiving Glory Rings for States and Nations.
2000 was my first year to create and release an Anointing Oil, as inspired by the Holy Spirit, 35 bottles of Remnant Bride Anointing Oil were given away. As the LORD is always faithful, in 2000, 100 prophetic songs in color (aka Glory Rings) were created and given away (11 States, 33 Nations, 56 Individuals). This was our first year to release a Native American Glory Ring. The Holy Spirit directed my path to over 100,000 miles on Oregon roads in the last 4 years praying for the land of my birth! Eight Beginning Glory Ring Workshops were held in Tennessee, Colorado and Oregon. Personally, the year held two life-changing celebrations: On 04.29.2000 my first grandson, Elijah Thomas, was born and on 10.04.2000 my Dad, went home to be with JESUS. The LORD's ways are always higher than our ways (Isaiah 54).
2001 - A Year of HIS Jubilee!
“You shall thus consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim a release through the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, and each of you shall return to his own property, and each of you shall return to his family" (Leviticus 25:10, NASB).
The LORD clearly asked me to give up my working career to serve HIM and minister to HIS people. It was more than a step of faith - it was like jumping off a cliff without a parachute. In this season of extreme faith, the HGRM Covenantal Prayer Shield, Jubilee Prayers for America, and Advanced Glory Ring Workshops became functional parts of the ministry. GOD extended our tent-pegs to New York, Connecticut, Tennessee, Kentucky, California and Washington where Beginning and Advanced Prophetic Glory Ring Workshops were facilitated. GOD poured out HIS provision for Glory Ring supplies in an unprecedented way making it overtly clear that HGRM was HIS possession. Over 300 Glory Rings were created and given away (17 States, 7 Native American Tribes, 30 Nations, 200 at 12 Beginning Glory Ring Workshops, 45 individuals). The LORD's grace and mercy has allowed us to continue to be a debt-free ministry. To top off the year, I was given the gift of a Cruise to Mexico with three ports of call - Mazatlan, Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta - ONLY GOD could have arranged all that! Glory to HIS Holy NAME!
2002 - A Year of HIS Triumph and Victory! “I am the LORD, your HOLY ONE, the Creator of Israel, Your King. Thus says the LORD, Who makes a way through the sea and a path through might waters, who brings forth the chariot and the horse, the army and the mighty man (They will lie down together and not rise again; They have been quenched and extinguished like a wick): Do not call to mind the former things, Or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:15-19, NASB).
This was a year of many victories and new things. The New Things included: 1) My Ordination as a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, 2) My first international ministry trip to Peru, 3) Our first Baby Dedication which included my first grand-daughter, Sarah Joy born August 21,2002, 4) Performing a Wedding Ceremony as a minister, 5) Our first Family Flag Workshop, 6) The HGRM Covenantal Prayer Shield enlarging to include Leadership, Ministries and Individual Intercessors, 7) Completion of the four-corners of America (Washington, Maine, California and Florida) Glory Ring Workshops, 8) The first HIS Glory Reigns Worship Gatherings in Gresham, Oregon 9) The introduction of our first web site (www.hisgloryringministries.com), 10) HGRM began asking for a Registration Fee for the Workshops to help offset the increasing costs – (the first 50 workshops held no registration fees). The Victories included: 1) Finishing a Glory Ring for every State in America, 2) Creating and giving away over 1400 bottles of Holy Anointing Oil, 3) The HGRM Prayer Shield increasing to over 100, 4) Over 350 Glory Rings created (10 Nations, 2 Tribes, 27 states the remainder at workshops and to individuals), 5) Facilitating over 50 workshops since 1997, 16 in 2002. This was my 3rd year walking in faith as the LORD has not allowed me to take a salary while I am in ministry. In GOD's mercy the ministry continued to remain debt-free. One thing remains true ~ HGRM ministry is an expression of HIS wonders, signs and miracles. For HIS Glory alone!
2003 - A Year of HIS Divine Presence!
And HE said, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest (to be soothed, secure, dwell peacefully, comforted, quieted). Then he said to HIM, "If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here" (Exodus 33:14-15, NASB).
This year held many new miraculous beginnings including: 1) Our first ministry baptisms in the Sandy River, 2) Our first ministry Ordinations, 3) Have Glory Ring will Travel! translated into the Spanish Language, 4) The first branches of HIS Glory Reigns in Lolo, Montana and Hillsboro, Oregon 5) America-Israel Prayer Shield and 6) Native American Prayer Shield began this year. We created and gave away 130 Glory Rings (28 Nations, 2 Cities, 3 Tribes, 3 Ministries, 81 individuals, and 13 states of America). Seven workshops were held in Oregon, Montana, Colorado and California. It was also a year of release as each State in America now has a Prophetic Song - a Glory Ring which we believe will usher in a calling forth of prophetic intercession in each State.
Only through the creative power of the Holy Spirit have over 1900 Prophetic Glory Rings been sent forth to GOD’s Nations, States, Tribes, Cities, Churches, Ministries, Families and Individuals. For HIS Glory alone! HIS DIVINE PRESENCE is the reason for the continuation of this ministry.
2004 - A Year of HIS Release!
“Then Moses commanded them, saying, “At the end of every seven years, at the time of the year of remission of debts, at the Feast of Booths…” (Deuteronomy 31:10, NASB).
Do you see the warfare, or do you see the victory? The Holy Spirit graciously has taught me to look for and focus on HIS victory, HIS purposes, HIS plans, HIS dreams, HIS goals, HIS heart, HIS desires....so that I will continue moving forward regardless of the cost. GOD has sent me to Canada, Mexico, Peru and USA (31 States) in the last 8 years for Prayer Journeys, Divine Appointments, Preaching, Teaching and Glory Ring Workshops....that is a miracle! This year was a year of contending for and maintaining the territory the LORD gave to us the 9 previous years. We continued with the four Prayer Shields, Glory Ring Workshops, the web-site, HIS Glory Reigns Worship Gatherings and sending forth Prophetic Glory Rings. The test of betrayal is one that sooner or later comes into the life of a Christian. Readily, we learn that it is not so much about the betrayer but about our response to the one who has betrayed us. The LORD allowed this specific test four times this year which I found to be more challenging than I ever imagined. And I remembered that when Jesus Christ of Nazareth was betrayed by Judas…Jesus forgave him and then let him go.
The year held a major victory of completing 51 America-Israel Glory Rings which is the proclamation of the “I AM” over these two nations. We crossed the threshold of the 2000th Glory Ring created this year as well as giving away 51 worship flags.
Additionally, I had the privilege of attending my first Native American Christian Gathering - The Convocation of Eagles. As 2005 approaches we are delighted to have a HIS Glory Reigns Worship Gatherings beginning in Vernonia, Oregon in March 2005 as well as continuing our Fairview, Oregon Worship Gathering.
2005 - A Year of HIS Fullness!
“But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit" (Galatians 5:22-25, NASB).
Surprised by the plan of GOD, in January, I found myself in a M.Div. Program at Marylhurst University while continuing to work part-time and be in ministry full-time. The beginning of 2005 held the same three questions from the LORD, “Will you worship me no matter what?” and “Will you count the cost of serving me and serving me alone?” and “Will you serve My People no matter what?” And then HE added another question, “Will you love My People no matter what?” Any “Yes” response to the LORD is through HIS overt mercy and grace. I have been following Jesus since I was a young girl and there is no other path for me.
The HIS Glory Reigns Worship Gatherings were discontinued this year because of my time constraints of academia. Glory Ring Workshops were held in Korbel, California and Fort Collins, Colorado, which also hosted our first Children's Workshop. A major miracle was the completion of my second book in June, A Collection of Joy. July held another surprise as the Holy Spirit released three new Anointing Oils.
In the fall, I traveled to Moorpark, California and to Nashville, Tennessee as the LORD continued to direct my steps. I began a North America Continent Prayer Shield in December as the year closed. We have created over 2100 Glory Rings including 338 made for Nations, States, Cities, Tribes and Territories for HIS Glory. Over 15,000 visited the web site in 2005. In looking back, I remained amazed at what the LORD GOD does with a shattered life and a few ribbons. “Yes, FATHER, I will worship you no matter what!”
Resurrection Sunday held the third death our family experienced this weekend; my lifelong friend, Arlene in 1994, my sister, Susan in 1997 and now my sister-in-law, Evelyn in 2006. Our FATHER's timing is not our timing.
2006 – A Year of HIS Holy Righteous, Pure Pentecost Fire!
“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them” (Acts 2:1-3, NASB).
Our four Prayer Shields 1) The America Prayer Shield, 2) The America Israel Prayer Shield, 3) The Native America Prayer Shield and 4) The North America Prayer Shield merged into 888-Prayers. Our ministry outreaches included Seaside, La Grande, Saint Helens and Molalla, Oregon as well as Moorpark, California and Foley, Alabama. Prayer Journeys along the Gulfport of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida were eminent in addition to the beautiful Oregon Coastline. We gave away 116 Worship Instruments and remain amazed at ADONAI's faithfulness to connect us with HIS faithful intercessors around the world.
Perhaps the greatest shift in our ministry since its inception took place this year as we changed our name from HIS Glory Ring Ministries to HIS Glory Reigns Ministries intentionally accepting the increased area of our tent pegs according to ELOHIM's plans and purposes. The third Anointing Oil created this year, The Fullness of HIS Joy! and a life focused on HIM is surely full of HIS Joy.
2007 – A Year of HIS Kingdom, Glory, Authority and Power!
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1, NASB).
The year joyously began with my oldest son’s wedding, and then the birth of my second grandson, Caleb Jeremy on April 12, 2007.
Ministry outreaches included Robertsdale, Alabama; Mohave Valley, Arizona; Eureka and Korbel, California; Lebanon, White House and Springfield, Tennessee; La Grande and Florence, Oregon. We created and gave away 243 Worship Instruments (Glory Rings including the 64 “I AM” Glory Rings for America-Israel, Worship Flags, 50 Worship Hammers, and Prayer Shawls). I created and released our 16th Anointing Oil, I AM! and facilitated our first Worship Hammer Class in Korbel, California and our first Experiential Communion Table Fellowship in Springfield, Tennessee. I love the new beginnings of YAHWEH!
The year closed with a successful surgery on my left hand which had been injured at work in September. I am grateful to have the use of my left hand once again. Healing is a sweet gift of Yeshua!
2008 – A Year of HIS Open Gates of Divine Pure Love!
“For the gifts and callings of God are irrevocable” (Romans 11:29, NASB).
The LORD opens doors and redeems HIS Covenant in ways that only HE fully understands. 2008 held many miracles including my first tour of Israel in May (fully provided by someone I never met). We gave away 162 Worship Instruments and our 888-Prayer Shields grew to 524 intercessors. I continued my academic endeavors at Marylhurst University with anticipated Graduation in June 2010. Our ministry outreaches included Arcata, California, Great Bend, Kansas, which held our first Glory Soaking, Westmoreland, Tennessee, and Coville, Washington, our first 3-day conference which was the first time the Anointing Oil Class was presented and the first time we made a Corporate Anointing Oil, HIS Pentecost Fire Glory! We have created 19 Anointing Oils and we are beyond grateful the LORD GOD invites us to participate daily in the Advancement of HIS Kingdom on the Earth for HIS Eternal Glory. Each season brings new opportunities to develop, proclaim and walk our faith as followers of Christ Jesus. Glory to HIS Holy Name!
2009 – A Year of HIS Covenant Light, Love, Unity and New Wine!
“This is My Commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:12-13, NASB).
The beginning of 2009 held the same four questions from the LORD, “Will you worship me no matter what?” and “Will you count the cost of serving me and serving me alone?” and “Will you serve My People no matter what?” and “Will you love My People no matter what?” HGRM gave away 114 Worship Instruments including a New Worship Instrument: The LORD’s Night Guardian, created four more Anointing Oils, provided Ordination Services for 14 Individuals, and participated in the following Ministry Outreaches: State of Oregon Prayer and Missoula, Montana 3-Day Conference. Glory Ring Workshops were held in Monteagle, Tennessee, Hillsboro, Oregon, Bowling Green and Eddyville, Kentucky in addition to, Prophetic Ministry Outreaches in Ridgefield, Washington and Saint Helens, Oregon. I ventured out in new areas including the America Prayers being broadcast on a local radio station and adding a Worship Hammer Prayer Shield. After 2 years without any success of overcoming the challenges with our previous “frozen in cyberspace” website, I began a new website (www.hisgloryreigns.com).
The greatest and most amazing assignment of the year was a 3-Day, 8 Southern States Prayer Journey (over 2400 miles) with three other intercessors. During summer term, I completed all required classes for graduation, leaving one assignment: The Thesis/Project. The year closed with the 888-Prayers increasing to 999-Prayers (our 5 prayer shields merged into one stream) with 598 intercessors for the GLORY of YESHUA!
The LORD generously brought more spiritual inheritance through the birth of my third grandson, Andrew Wyatt on October 10, 2009 - A John 10:10 child.
2010 –A Year of Worshiping the LORD in Spirit and in Truth! ~ The Year of the Hammer!
“But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and in Truth" (John 4:23-24, NASB).
The LORD began the year with the same four questions and I find myself in the last term of the M.Div. program fully engaged in writing my thesis: Worship: A Synergistic Synopsis - A Covenantal Relationship Between Ministerial Praxis and Academic Scholarship and then graduated with my M.Div. in June 2010.
Ministry outreaches included Corvallis and Florence, Oregon, Colorado Springs, Colorado and Vancouver, Washington. In Franklin, Kentucky and Missoula, Montana I led 3-Day Conferences. In Knoxville, Tennessee and Chester, South Carolina, I facilitated Beginning Glory Ring Workshops. Prayer Journeys spanning 15 States (OR, WA, ID, MT, UT, TN, KY, CO, DE, DC, SC, NC, VA, WV, MD) and over 20,000 miles which is the most I have ever traveled for ministry via a vehicle in one year.
The Holy Spirit launched four new mandates this year: 1. Worship Hammers for the States of America, 2. Worship Hammers for Nations, 3. Anointing Oils for States of America, 4. Anointing Oils for Nations. HGRM gave away 212 Worship Instruments including Glory Rings, Worship Hammers, Prayer Mantles, Scepters and Swords for our FATHER's Eternal Glory. Additionally, we were privileged to ordain six individuals as Ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The 999-Prayers continue to reach the nations as we purpose to pray intentionally for the 9 prayer targets the Holy Spirit inspired. We had over 17,000 visitors to our web site in 2010 and give God the glory for redeeming the time required to finish writing a new website this year. We are sojourners with Christ Jesus, ever seeking HIS face of Eternal Glory.
2011 - A Year of the Alpha and the Omega! The Aleph and the Tav! ~ The Year of the Sword!
And HE who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And HE said, “Write for these words are faithful and true.” Then HE said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. HE who overcomes will inherit these things, I will be his GOD and they will be MY sons and daughters (Revelation 21:5-7, NASB).
February and March were spent in Tennessee where I ministered and finished my third book, A Connection of Joy. During April, I was in the Northwest (Oregon/Washington) ministering and visiting friends and family. May through August was spent at Flathead Lake, Montana where I completed a Worship Sword for every State in America along with making other Worship Instruments, Anointing Oils for States and Nations, and serving my FATHER’s Kingdom for HIS eternal Glory. During this Passover-Pentecost season the LORD healed me from chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, low blood sugar, anemia and my lungs from a toxic gas poisoning in 1988...HE visited me in an unprecedented and supernatural way.
September took me to Utah for some precious time with family and hiking in the Wasatch Mountains, this was a complete miracle to be able to breath and hike at 10,000 feet above sea-level. Only God! In 2011, I performed two weddings and ordained five individuals. Miraculously, we celebrated our 999-Prayers 10th anniversary, with over 500 prayers written and released for America with over 500 intercessors participating. Another goal for 2011 was to double our website visitors from 2010, which we did…over 40,000 visitors from nations around the world … all Glory to YESHUA.
I traveled through the States of OR, WA, MT, UT, VA, KY, TN, MO, IL, CO, MD, ID and Washington DC this year with HGRM Intercessors joining me along the journey. Additionally, I made a brief prayer journey across the border into Canada.
June 3, 2011 held the birth of my fifth grandchild, Ethan Spencer a sweet blessing from heaven! In October, I accepted a full-time position with a financial investment firm and moved back to Central Oregon where HGRM began in 1995.
2012 - Coming Full Circle!
Go through, go through the gates, clear the way for the people; Build up, build up the highway, Remove the stones, lift up a standard over the peoples. Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the earth, say to the daughter of Zion, “Lo, your salvation comes; Behold His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him” (Isaiah 62:10-11, NASB).
The LORD granted my request of a sabbatical rest from Workshops and Conferences in 2012, which meant most of the ministry time was devoted to making Worship Instruments and Anointing Oils and the continuous writing and updating of the website which had 60,000 plus visitors this year. We made our 32nd Anointing Oil, Shalom in addition to continuing our project of making an Anointing Oil for each State in America. An additional project was transferring 7000 photos/photo albums from our previous internet photo host to Snapfish.com to allow continued viewing of our ministry photo albums. A ministry outreach was held in Moorpark, California and prayer journeys Oregon, California, Washington, Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC. We continued our 999-Prayers, HGRM Group Emails and HGRM Covenantal Prayer Shield. For YESHUA's Eternal Glory.
2013 ~ The Divine Order of ELOHIM! ~ The Year of the Scepter
"Now it came about on the third day that Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the king's palace in front of the king's rooms, and the king was sitting on his royal throne in the throne room, opposite the entrance to the palace. When the kind saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in his sight; and the king extended to Esther the golden scepter which was in his hand. So Esther came near and touched the top of the scepter" (Esther 5:1-2, NASB).
As it turned out, the Scepter Project for each State in America was delayed largely due to my working full-time as an office manager, along with surviving four surgeries and a back injury in 2013. Gratefully, at this time the back injury and two of the surgeries are completely healed. HGRM held three ministry outreaches in 2013: A Beginning Glory Ring Workshop in Redmond, Oregon, a prophetic ministry outreach to Brush Prairie, Washington and then I attended the Faith and Freedom Conference in Washington DC where I was privileged to meet Donald J. Trump and have my photo taken with Sarah Palin. Additional prayer journeys in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. This year I created four Anointing Oils along with 15 Glory Rings. We continued our 999-Prayers, HGRM Group Emails, HGRM Covenantal Prayer Shield, and added many new pages to our website which had 80,000 plus visitors this year. May our endeavors of servanthood bring ABBA ADONAI Eternal Glory!
Thesis Publication ~ An amazing gift this year was the publication of my master’s thesis by a company in Germany. Title: A Synergistic Synopsis – A Covenantal Relationship Between Ministerial Praxis and Academic Scholarship. Out of Marylhurst University’s 100 year plus history, I am the only one to write a thesis on this subject. My steps are truly ordered by the LORD GOD!
A personal joy, my 6th grandchild was born this year on May 4, 2013 ~ Emma Shayleen…the anniversary of my grandfather’s birth on May 4, 1907.
2014 ~ The Year of Perseverance
And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within out hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us (Romans 5:3-5, NASB).
Each day begins with the same four questions and requires more faith, more obedience, more trust, more diligence, more perseverance than the day before. This year was once again about keeping our territory, not losing any ground, and maintaining that which the Holy Spirit had entrusted to us. Gratefully, this year the Worship Hammer and Worship Sword Projects for each State in America were fully completed! Praise YESHUA! The Worship Scepter for each State in America is prepared but not completed. 2014 held three ministry outreaches in Madras, Cannon Beach and Milwaukie, Oregon. We have continued our 999-Prayers, HGRM Group Emails, Prayer Shield, FB Group, and website as well as creating new Worship Instruments and Anointing Oils. Surprise – the Holy Spirit asked for 17 Worship Hammers for the United Nations – a very clear act of intentional intercession. The two surgeries in 2013 to repair the birth defects in my feet have taken more time to heal than I could have ever imagined. As one who has walked more in the supernatural than the natural, this walk in the natural has tested every last thread of my faith.
2015 ~ It is Joy Unspeakable and Full of Glory ~ The Year of Restoration!
It will be to Me a name of joy, praise and glory before all the nations of the earth which will hear all the good that I do for them, and they will fear and tremble because of all the good and all the peace that I make for it (Jeremiah 33:9, NASB).
Delightfully, as my full-time employment came to a close, I found myself with ample time to catch up many ministry projects particularly of the computer nature. I began JJ’s Blog and a FB Page this year. The Worship Scepter for each State in America was completed this year. GLORY to GOD! Many Worship Instruments made in previous years were given away as well as new Worship Instruments created and given. The 45th Anointing Oil was made this year. Three significant prayer journeys were made this year…I am grateful to be able to drive with my right foot after two years of driving with my left foot as my right foot took a very long time to heal. The first to Oregon-Nevada-California (1400 miles), the second to Oregon-Idaho-Utah-Colorado (1000 miles) and the third I flew to Tennessee for ten days. Additionally, the LORD opened doors for me to minister in Madras and Salem, Oregon this year.
Sometimes I take a moment to look back at what GOD has done while I have been following HIM…I am always amazed. Always. My gratitude is to HIM, who is faithful!
2016 ~ The YEAR of ELOHIM’s HOLINESS! - The Year of the Victory Streamers!
A highway will be there, a roadway, and it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, but it will be for him who walks that way, and fools will not wander on it (Isaiah 35:8, NASB).
This year was highlighted by the LORD asking me to go to the four corner border states of America and Kansas this year as it is an election year in America. It is in this place I would like to express my deep gratitude for those that kept their word, fulfilled their commitment, completed their assignment as it related to this America Prayer Journey (22 States). PAPA GOD and I thank you for your perseverance, truth, diligence, sacrifice, integrity, honesty, light and diligence…you are a rare delight among those professing to be Christians. Additionally, this year included seven ordinations, a Beginning Glory Ring Workshop, an Experiential Communion Table Fellowship, and the beginning of the Worship Flag Project, along with 10 new anointing oils bringing the total to 59 since 1999. We continued our 999-Prayers (15th Anniversary), A-432 Music Project and the creation of 219 new Worship Instruments, the completion of a Worship Streamer for every State in America and a new States of America Anointing Oil for Hawaii. Our new venture was developing You-Tube Videos that are available through our website.
2017 ~ The Year of the KING’s Anointing
As for you, the anointing which you received from HIM abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as HIS anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in HIM (1 John 2:27, NASB).
This year we crossed the threshold of creating and giving away over 4000 Prophetic Worship Instruments in the last 21 years of ministry. Who but GOD?
With great joy the Worship Flag Project for the Nations was completed and the HIS Remnant Gathering Nations Prayer Shield was birthed. Our 999-Prayers went through a complete transformation including a new internet host, formats, colors, alignment, order, organization, social media connections and scheduling all for the Glory of Yeshua. We completed 50% of the States of America Anointing Oil Project which began in 2010, with the hope we will advance greatly in this project in 2018. HGRM has created over 100 Anointing Oils in the last 21 years…for the Eternal Glory of God! The ministry outreaches included more preaching and teaching this year as the LORD is stretching the tent pegs of HGRM. My feet touched 4 States of America this year (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana). HGRM celebrated our 3rd ministry baby dedication in May…Oh Divine Glory! We also began the Anointed Oil of the Month in May which truly has been pure delight. The glorious surprise of the LORD was a divine anointed prayer journey to Jerusalem, Israel in October.
On a personal note, I was given the gift of orthotics this year and began walking again…learning how to do stairs. The recovery from the 2013 surgeries has been exceedingly long. I still cannot yet skip, hop, jump, leap or hike but walking is truly a gift.
2018 - The Year of Open Doors, Open Gates, Open Portals and Open Heavens
As the previous website became obsolete, requiring a new website, the beginning of 2018 was dedicated to building a new website. During the 2018 Passover-Pentecost Season 8 Jael Spikes were created to honor those hosting the HGRM 2016 America Prayer Journey.
