Prophesy from Previous Days of Renewal

To know the truth, My people, you must die to "self". Give Me your plans and desires that I might transform them to what they should be. Let go of what distracts you. Let go of what gives you false security. If you find your identity in power, in money, in appearance, in ability, or in possessions, you build on sand that can be swept away in an instant, and your "identity" destroyed. Humble yourself so you can see clearly the plans I have for you; so you can know what is true and have security only in Me, your Lord, God. 
(Ceil Ritchey, "Sanctuary" Lancaster)

Look beyond your circumstances and trust Me for the outcome. The whole process of creation is nothing compared with the longing of God for the soul of man. Listen for My will and want My will more than anything else. When you open the door to evil, you close the door to Me. Seek the light. Submit yourself to whatever disciplines Our Father has for you so that your eyes may not become veiled to the light.

Day of Renewal September 17, 2016

1 Peter 4: 9-10

“Be mutually hospitable without complaining.  As generous distributors of God’s manifold grace, put your gifts at the service of one another, each in the measure he has received.”

Mary Ann Campion, St. Margaret Mary Prayer Group, Harrisburg.


Come, My lovely ones, come.

Allow Me to fill you with My Holy Spirit so all fear and anxiety will melt away.  How I long to cover you with My very own Self so that all I want to accomplish through you is done in complete submission to the Father’s will for you.  Do not be troubled, My children.  Do not be anxious or afraid. All has been provided for you.

The Father has planned every detail of your life.  Nothing escapes His attention. Trust, My Children.  Trust in the Father’s all merciful love for you.  It is all yours, My children.  He is all yours.  Go forth in the peace of My Spirit breathing in you so all you do is holy and pleasing to God.

Janet Shuttlesworth of Upper Room Prayer Group, Abbottstown.


Do not be afraid of weakness.  When you are weak, I am strong.  Do not rely on your own ability  but seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.  Come to me and trust me in your pain.

Bernie White, Sanctuary Prayer Group, St. Leo the Great Church, Lancaster.


My children of grace,

My grace and My mercy flow upon you constantly, like a mighty river.  Please become more aware of their existence.  Accept the graces I offer you and use them to speak My mane to all.  You are My mouthpiece, My hands to extend and explain My mercy and love to all.  I will lead and guide you to accomplish My will.

Christine Harbaugh, Upper Room Prayer Group, Abbottstown.


For such a time as this, My people, ask for a double portion of my Spirit.  My Spirit that you already possess but some allow to lie dormant while others use for their own purpose.  Will My Spirit have a voice; will My Spirit have hands that touch and heal; will My Spirit have feet that carry My message? This is the time.  Ask for a double portion of My Spirit.  Be courageous.  Faith will sustain you; hope will bear you up; love will set you free to act in My name in what is coming, in what is already here.

Ceil Ritchey, Sanctuary Prayer Group, St. Leo the Great Church, Lancaster.


My Beloved Children,

I am building you into a house where I may dwell.  I am the foundation.  I am the cornerstone on which you can build but you must choose wisely the materials that you use. 

            The first stones which you can use are the Sacraments, the graces you receive from Penance and Eucharist are the first line of defense against the onslaught of the Evil One

            Next you can use the stone of solitude—time given just to me—to our relationship. Come to me in silence without any agenda and listen to my voice.

            You also can use the stone of sacrifice—fasting, offering up the little choices, problems, aches and pains for the good of others. 

            The final stone I have given you is Sacred Scripture—to know me more deeply—to know my plan for your salvation.  There will be many who come saying that they know what is going to happen, that you have to follow their way.  But I have told you, I am the way.  I am the truth; I am the life.  Follow me.  I will lead you.

Anne Rohrbaugh, Come and See Prayer Group, St. Patrick Church, York.
