PTH Anchorage Conference

“Maturity:  Dress Yourself…..”

Dear PTH Friends,
     April is here!!!  I did a quick research regarding the meaning of April and one of the meanings I came upon was April means “In Pure Spirit”.  Amazing!  And there is nothing more pure and divine than the Holy Spirit.  Thus, it is time, once again for the PTH “HOLY SPIRIT ENCOUNTER Conference.”  Nothing like the right time and the right season!  And no better time than “The Presence”.  (see details below).
     If there wasn’t a battle, one would not know the taste of victory!  When the Holy Spirit is given permission to have His way, there will always be a battle because the enemy of the Lord “is filled with fury because he knows that his time is short.” (Rev. 12:12b).  As with changing seasons, we have to dress according to the season upon us or we will be wearing our Parkas in Spring … everything around us is bursting with new life, trees … tulips … but am I still wearing my Parka???!!!  Time to dress myself according to the season! … Yes, to be strong in the Lord and His mighty power, putting on the full armor of God… (Eph. 6).  The theme of the conference is “Maturing in His Love.  Thus, if I consider myself mature, I best “dress myself” (in His armor).  It would be very awkward if I relied on my husband to come and dress me every morning; Not to mention, he is color-blind.
     As we head into war, let us clothe ourselves with His mighty armor to rage war against principalities and unseen things.  After all, who wants to be found naked, right?  Thank you for your prayers on behalf of Point To Hope.  The Lord is doing mighty things in this hour, and though wars may come, we know victory will be tasted in the end, but we must do our part … Ask (pray):  “You may ask Me for anything in My name, and I will do it.” (John 14:14).
     I’ve listed Nancy, and the workshop speakers below, but there are many more helping hands who come along side PTH to make the conferences successful.  As the Holy Spirit leads you to pray, “Speak it Out!”.  Also, please pray for: the worship, hospitality, families (and loved ones), traveling mercies, provision, revelation of the Holy Spirit, protection, sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. Declare that many will come and taste and see!  Pray for hearts to be prepared to receive the planting of the Word and impartation of teachings from His Word!   Proclaim a shield of protection around the conference and all the intercessors.  Pray for ears to hear, hearts to receive,  and an awakening in the community.  And in all this … May HE be glorified!
     Help us get the word out!  Shout it from the mountain top and the valley below!  The King is coming!  Lift up prayers as you are driving the streets – prepare the way … prepare the atmosphere …. announce what isn’t as if it is! 
     The Lord has given Nancy a powerful message for the year 2016:  Maturing in HIS LOVE: Redemptive Love, Established as a Sure Peg, and 7 Years of Plenty.   You won’t want to miss this conference!

Juneau 3:26:16
Also, Nancy and I made a quick trip to Juneau, AK …. the Lord asked her to go ASAP!  On March 26, 2016, Nancy opened the doors of the capitol …. this was a prophetic work for America … you will have to come to the conference to hear the rest of the story 🙂 ….


We look forward to seeing you again!

Word from Nancy: 7.1 Shaking; Activate 7 Years of Plenty

Nancy GA 1:16

Dear PTH Friends,

Shortly after midnight Saturday, Alaska had a 7.1 earthquake on the Kenai Peninsula; Home base for PTH Ministries. We just concluded the first PTH Conference of 2016 in Georgia and declared God’s Word Hebrews 12:25-29, “See to it that you do not refuse Him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused Him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from Him who warns us from heaven?  At that time His voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, ‘Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.’   The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.”

Could it be, He responded in the natural for what was declared in the Spirit?  The scriptures are full of declarations; declarations by the Lord and His servants alike.      The scripture also say we are to speak the very words of God, serve in His strength, and to Him be the glory and power (1 Peter 4:11).  Thus, if He decides to do some “shaking” we shouldn’t be surprised!  After all, He is God and He can answer anyway He chooses.  He desires to respond (in His time), we just only need to believe.

PTH GA 1:16 GA

Since Sept.13, 2015 (Jewish New Year of 2016), many have sensed … “It’s Time!  For some, it will be new ground to plow, for some it will be new planting, for some it will be watering, for some it will be harvesting.  Yet, most importantly, it will be the start of filling storehouses.  When I inquired of the Lord …storehouses???  He answered,  “With souls;  7 years of plenty, fill your storehouse with souls.”  Render to the lost with the favor of God!  I believe it is time!  7 years of plenty have been ACTIVATED …” That which will be shaken will be shaken, and that which stands firm shall not move…  We shall be like the “PEG” in God’s house (Ezra 9:8-9); Firmly established in Him so that when the “shaking” comes, we are a fixed peg!

2016 is about God’s Love.  If we claim and declare this word of redemptive love over our lives we will be established as pegs in a sure place – fixed in the “Cornerstone, Jesus Christ;”  And declaring the “7 Years of Plenty” has started for those who have ears to hear, and believe.

So be encouraged!  Clothe yourselves with His favor, go and fill the “store house” with souls.  Be clothed with hope, righteous, and boldness, go and preach His “saving grace” and we will see and realize the fruition ” 7 years of plenty,” and a small measure of revival, as it says in Ezra, chapter 9:8-9.  Be strong and courageous!  OUR VICTORY IS CLOSE at hand …. Amen!!!

To all, those who did an amazing job serving Him at the conference, and those who did an amazing job lifting the PTH conference in prayer, I say this to you:  “Well done good and faithful servants!  May God Bless you and all those you love Every day, may you be armored, and be bold and courageous, walking in His promises as He is a shield before you … And may you always claim He is your rear Guard!!!”

Amid the shaking, go in His peace, His joy, which is our strength and measure of revival, by His Grace!!!

7.1 earthquake is a sign!  In all things, we give thanks!

Love you all!!!

Word for 2016 (Nancy Haney)

Dear Friends,

Hard to believe another year is upon us!  Throughout, I’m sure we’ve all had mountains and valleys.  Still, the Lord reigns in the highs and lows of circumstances…. His grace and mercy is new every day!

So, what about 2016?  I continue to search His Word and bend my ear in to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying in this hour.  There are many voices longing to be heard these days but this is true … the Word / Voice of the Lord is strong and mighty and His Word will never pass away!

Still, we continue to hear much about how ‘bad’ things are and how things are just going downhill …. and fast.  Truth is, satan has always been trying to destroy believers, Christmas and the Birth of Christ.  Throughout the centuries, Christians have literally lost their lives because they believed in what Christmas represented.  Clearly, satan is not up to anything new.  God, on the other hand, can and does make all things new at His will.

This is what I hear the Lord saying about 2016:  Redemptive Love, Establish, Peg, and 7 years of plenty.  2016 is evolving into an amazing year!  Of course, satan’s mode of operation is to cast doubt on God’s truths and plant seeds of opposition;  words to tear down His provision.  That’s the job of the enemy … to kill, steal, and destroy. He knows his time is short and he’s not going to relent.  Unfortunately,  the unbelieving world gets sucked into that doom and gloom mentality.  What better way to attempt to disarm the saints of the Living God than with lies?  Those lies are repeated and repeated until they become a reality to some (yes, even believers).   Speaking those things that aren’t as if they are rings true whether positive or negative!

Yet here is the good news:  God IS and WILL ALWAYS BE in charge!

Four keys the Lord has given me for 2016:
Number 20 – Redemption
Number 16 – God’s love

2)  ESTABLISH:  In order to understand and actually realize His REDEMPTIVE LOVE, we have to be established in Him, in His Truth, His Word, and living it!

3)  A PEG:  To be assured; found as a sure peg, solidly planted in the Cornerstone, Jesus Christ. A sure place, planted in and by faith, and fixed on Jesus Christ!  Solidly fixed, standing on a firm foundation full of His plans and standards, full of His favor.

4)  7 YEARS OF PLENTY:  This actually started on September 13, 2015 at sundown, according to the Jewish calendar (the beginning of 2016).  Seven years of filling up the storehouse of the Lord with souls for the Kingdom.   To realize the fruition of 7 years of plenty, is to walk out His redemptive love, which has made us whole.  And each one is made uniquely to fulfill His plans, to be established with confidence in whom and what we are in Him – unshakable, confident, and solidly planted in His faith.  We are defined as His peg, driven in the place where our sphere of influence changes the atmosphere everywhere we go when everything we do is in the name of Jesus Christ.  We know and react to make an impact for the Kingdom, always moving forward for the Kingdom’s sake.  Finally knowing that the storehouse of God’s purposes is filling up, daily.  Seven years of favor.  Seven years of trusting God with a true strategy for family, friends, strangers, health, and finances, etc.  The key is storing up for Him.  Reread the story of Joseph, and take note of his hardships, yet incredible faith.  Are we welcoming the negative chapters of the story? …  The characters throughout Joseph’s life that believed the lies and therefore reacted on them?  His jealous brothers, always accusing, plotting to kill him; selling him to Egyptian traders who then sold Joseph as a slave!  Or how about the wicked wife seeking her own advantages? And what about Potiphar?  Initially, he loved and respected Joseph, then later, believed the lies and rejected him.  And the Pharaoh who trusted, believed and ultimately rewarded Joseph?  The end result, a nation was saved because one believed in a redemptive love, learned how to be established, became a peg firmly planted in the Cornerstone, Jesus Christ.  Joseph walked out the work of filling the storehouse with treasures … souls.

God’s will wins.  Is this you!   It’s your choice.   The truth is, the end of the Book says He wins!

Blessings in the Name of Jesus as we head into a new year to fulfill His plans and purposes!

Nancy Haney,
PTH President

Dec. 14, 2015

Dear Point To Hope Friends,

Hard to believe it is December!  However, since I am writing to “Believers” I guess it is no surprise to you! 

For some, 2015 has been a year of various storms.  Others, you may have had storms, but it was nothing like the storm the year before, and that is something to be grateful for.  What ever the weather, spiritually speaking, we know the ONE who calms the sea.  Regardless how the waves roar, we know we have a sure place if we stay anchored in the Master.  Whether your boat is rocky or smooth … our “WEATHER MAN” never changes.  It is up to us whether we believe or not.  What ever storm you faced from January until now …. here’s the good news – if you are reading this, you made it this far!  Our God is Holy and worthy of praise all the time!  Amen!

On behalf of Point To Hope Ministries, I want to thank you for your diligence to pray for Kingdom purposes and fulfilling His call for this 2015 year.  There have been many testimonies of God’s faithfulness, miracles, deliverances, healings.  And the greatest of all –  those who have said yes to Jesus and their name was written in the Book of Life!  You have been an intricate part in the many testimonies.  Like modern day “Ezras” – beseeching the Lord for safe journeys ….. Knowing His hand will be a shelter of protection against His enemy who seeks to devour His children.

“… That we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek from Him a safe journey…” (Ezra 8:21b).  “The hand of our God is for good on all who seek Him, and the power of His wrath is against all who forsake Him.”  So we fasted and implored our God for this, and He listened to our entreaty. (Ez. 8:22b & 23)
PTH has had safe journeys through 2015, not without bumps, but definitely safe and sheltered … through all kinds of spiritual weather.  So, once again, as we move into 2016, the first thing on the schedule is Washington D.C. (last week of December, 2015).

As many of you already know, before Nancy goes into a foreign country for a prayer assignment, the first place the Lord directs her is to the embassy of that country in D.C.  It is His way of giving her the spiritual authority for specific countries.  It’s not hard to understand this spiritual concept when you read scenarios of biblical battles and the various spiritual strongholds over certain regions (ex: prince of the kingdom of Persia & prince of Greece / Dan. 10, etc). 

Having said that, PTH would greatly appreciate your prayer coverage.  Like Ezra, we recognize the necessity to seek Him for a safe journey to the embassies knowing the hand of our God is for good on all who seek Him.

On another note for Jan. & Feb.:  Nancy will be continuing on to minister in Georgia / S. Carolina (with other PTH team members joining her along the way).  Again, it is your prayers that open the heavens!   Also, the first 2016 PTH Holy Spirit Encounter Conference will begin Thursday (7 PM), January 21-23, 2016, at Grace Place Farm & Lodge (1422 Reynolds Farm Rd., Grovetown, GA 30813). See the website for more conference / ministry details: 

This year’s Holy Spirit Encounter theme:  “Now Set Your Hearts on the Kingdom of Heaven … Maturing in His Love.”.  Also, more events / meetings will be added to the PTH  “event calendar” once finalized …. so stay tuned!  PTH cherishes your prayers!  They are powerful, effective, and most appreciated. … “He listened to our entreaty.” (Ez. 8:23b)

Blessings and Merry Christmas to all as we celebrate the birth of King of kings! … A daily celebration!

PTH Prayer Facilitator

Note from Nancy: “Jehovah Raah: See My Sound”

Jehovah Raah1Nov. 5, 2015

Dear Friends,

It is nearing the end of the ministry time here in Ohio / West Virginia.  I truly have felt the power of your prayers.  I am so grateful that you have partnered with me, and all of Point To Hope, to complete the work that He has called us to do.  

At one of the last meetings, I shared a message about Jehovah Raah, “The God Who Sees.”  Abraham, Hagar, and Blind Bartimaeus had one thing in common:  Jehovah Raah opened their eyes to see what He had provided.  Well, Jehovah Raah is still the same today!

In the early morning hours, the day after I had shared this teaching, I was awakened to an invitation from the Lord … “Come, see with the eyes of MY heart.”  So, I arose with the breaking of the new day and wondered outside of the home of my friends, Dee and Norris, to see what the Lord had for me to see.  I stood on the hillside overlooking the quaint little town just outside of Parkersburg, WV.  The town, still sleeping, but I could sense the sun was anxious to awaken this quiet little valley…. A Holy hush…. So quiet and still.

The brilliance of the sun began to illuminate the beautiful fall colors clinging to an array of branches, bushes, and trees; beautiful shades of gold, orange, reds, greens, and even browns.  My heart was awakening and I began to “see” what He meant when He said: “His mercies are fresh and new every morning.”  A new morning being created before my very eyes;  A breath-taking panoramic view of radiant beauty.  I could hear him whisper in my heart:  “Behold, I make all things new!”

Then, it was as if the Lord stepped unto a rostrum and gracefully raised His arms in preparation to conduct a great symphony.   I could now hear with my ears the new things of the day; the new things He was awakening … the sound of soft-singing birds, gradually intensifying into a vibrant song; lights beginning to flicker – sections to the right, center, then left, until this sleepy little town glowed.  The next stanza I could hear the sound of doors opening and shutting, car and truck engines starting: some purring others roaring.  All the morning routines of this little town were blending together to the tap, tap, tap of the Master’s baton.  Sounds of this great symphony began to rise up the hillside as music of the day.  I watched – I listened … it was glorious!

“Jehovah Raah” opened my eyes to see with eyes of His heart.  This orchestra had been there all along!  It was already provided for me … before I beheld it – it was there!  Prepared for my enjoyment!
Jehovah Raah2Then I heard this anthem bubble up out of my soul: 

America the Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies,
for amber waves of grain;
for purple mountain majesties
above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
and crown thy good with brotherhood
from sea to shining sea.

O beautiful for heroes proved
in liberating strife,
who more than self their country loved,
and mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine,
till all success be nobleness,
and every gain divine.

O beautiful for patriot dream
that sees beyond the years
thine alabaster cities gleam,
undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God mend thine every flaw,
confirm thy soul in self-control,
thy liberty in law.

Oh, how beautiful these spacious skies … and the sound!  I couldn’t believe I could still remember these lyrics!  Yes, God was saying, “Good morning, America!”  Love, Jehovah Raah, “The God who sees.”


Ohio PTH Conference: Raise the WarCry! …(Joshua & Jonah)

October 21, 2015

Dear PTH Friends,

Tonight was the “pre-rally” gathering for the PTH Holy Spirit Encounter Conference with the theme:  Raise the War Cry:  God’s Redemptive Rest.  It is being held at:  
     Calvary Assembly of God 63849 Us Highway 50, McArthur, Ohio.  It starts Tomorrow, Oct. 22-24, 2015:  (free of charge), All welcome!!!

Thursday Doors Open 6:30 P.M. – 7:00 PM, Evening session: Nancy  Haney
Friday & Saturday:  
  Prayer 8:30 AM Workshops 9:30 A.M,1:30 & 3:30 PM;  7:00 PM Evening sessions: Nancy Haney
(check the website for more details & contacts:


Back to the “pre-rally” … or the “kick-off” for you sports fans!  From what I am hearing, the Holy Spirit is on the move!  Moving and shaking … why?  Simply because we are the “Salt of the earth.”  I love some of the comments I have heard from the Ketchikan PTH friends:  “We will not be shaken” – we are the shakers (the vessels for salt; our body).  We are the salt!”  His Holy Spirit in us – a savory season for those we meet.  Let us be poured out for Him.

So yes!  Time to do some “shaken’ and seasoning’ “ in Ohio.  The name “Ohio” (ohi-yo), meaning “great river.”  Well, we have a Great River of Life!  And His Spirit is ready to open the flood gates and reveal the Glory of God – Jesus Christ – the Light of the World!  Yes – this is for Ohio … it is the “season”.

Sounds awesome, but it didn’t just happen!  So many have been diligently praying for God’s will and God’s order, and now is the time!  Thank YOU for your prayers – the fruit of your prayers is going to touch lives and release a “Great River”!

prayer circle (1)  This picture (above) is a representation of what your prayers are doing over the body of Christ!  We pray and intercede for the Lord to have His way in each heart and mind of those who attend! … “Ears to hear!” Many will be coming and desiring a touch from the Holy Sprit – right where they are!  They too, can be like the one sitting in the middle because God desires each one have a personal and intimate touch from HIM!  A touch that will draw them and transform them into a greater likeness of Jesus!  

The scripture found in Joshua 24:15 says this:  “… choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…”   This may seem like a rather tough “shaking” – to pick a side!  But we also don’t want to be found in the middle … where it is “lukewarm” (Rev. 3:16) … because the next action is what I call “The Jonah Move” … gettin’ spit out of the mouth!  And, if you think about it, another word for middle is “belly” … Also a  “Jonah move” due to not choosing obedience.  Whether some feel like a Joshua or Jonah – in the end, both made the right choice!

 The picture below is the sanctuary … note the demarcation line … the “lukewarm” zone …

Tomorrow, the sanctuary will be filled with those coming for a “Holy Spirit Encounter.”  And we know, when we have an encounter with the Lord … we are never the same.  So back to my statement:  “may seem like a tough shaking” – NO … because remember, we are the salt shakers and we desire to choose whom we will serve!  The King of Kings!  Even Jonah, though spit out into “salt” water no doubt, got another chance and He chose obedience!   Let us press in to pray for those who may be in the “lukewarm” realm … the opportunity is at hand for all! … simply choose whom to serve!  God’s desire is for ALL … The same Holy Spirit power is available to all – just believe!  Amen!  

The workshop speakers will be presenting “Character of Christians” found in Romans chapter 12.  Please continue to pray for them as they deliver the message the Lord has given through His Word.

Ketchikan report & PTH Prayer Strategy

Dear PTH Friends,

Below, you will find two specific things:  
1) Ketchikan report from Debbie A.
2) A comprehensive prayer strategy for Point To Hope.

Here is an update regarding the “PTH Holy Spirit Encounter” conference in Ketchikan, Alaska.  His grace and mercy is never ending, and Ketchikan was blessed because of His Presence and our encounter with Him!

I just want to share a few thoughts regarding the PTH Ketchikan conference:

In my anguish I cried to the Lord,
And He answered by setting me free.
The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?
The Lord is with me; He is my helper.
I will look in triumph on my enemies.  Psalms 118: 5-7.
This was a heart cry in Ketchikan at the PTH Conference (Sept. 24th-26th).  It was a call to those who were afraid, in need of salvation, deliverance, healing, baptism of the Holy Spirit, refreshing, encouragement, reconciliation, etc, and being set FREE.
When the Spirit of the Living God touches the life of an individual, the whole countenance of a person’s face changes … when we look up to Him, we can’t help but be changed.  You could call it a “Face Up” encounter”.

Ketchikan, we had to Face up with many issues and concerns and we have a new freedom!  We had to Face up to and return to our first Love (Rev. 2).  We had to put our Face up to see from God’s perspective in order to understand how to live in resurrection power.  Just like the song,  “God’s Not Dead … He’s Surely Alive”!   God was alive in His people over Ketchikan. Yes, becoming addicted to the purposes and presence of God… no better addiction!  Being able to see / sense Him for who He is, from every direction, in every circumstance that we are going through, causes us to grow in Him!

We all had the invitation to go to the Potter’s House and get on the Potter’s wheel  … a personal decision – Let Him shift and reshape our lives to His standard and learn to see or BEHOLD God…. whether “mature or young”.
We have two choices:  what will mold us, rule us?  Flesh or Spirit?  In Ephesians 5:15 it talks about Redeeming the time. Look circumspectly – look from every angle from God’s view.    You and I are the Sons of God.  It is time we become mature according to His standard!
What’s the difference between driving a stick shift or a standard?
With an automatic, or a standard, all you have to do is slip into “D” for drive; the gears change automatically.   A stick shift, on the other hand, takes eye, hand and foot coordination.   Spiritually speaking, let us be found according to God’s STANDARD:   God’s “G” gear!  As we shift to “G”,  He changes us automatically – His timing! … verses “self” doing the shifting when we determine – making our “own decisions in our strength.”
Psalms 27:  God’s standard tells us to Move into the Light.
God tells us, I will put you on a high rock.  I will be a sanctuary and give  Anointing power over these ones.
    I want to be one of those!   One who puts life in His standard – “G” gear … and allows Him do the driving – letting Him change me automatically, His way.   
2 Chronicles 7:14 –  IF MY people will humble themselves…
It is as if He says, “you repent and I’ll relent.”    Only mature ones can recognize this:  It isn’t a call for us to point to others to pray, but more the war inside ourselves and our circumstances that causes us to humble ourselves so we know how to Pray.    That is God’s standard.
Whether you are driving over wet lands or a dessert – God has the perfect gear!Can these dry bones live?  Resurrection power is God’s idea for us.
– Do you need to simply “let go” of some things?
– Get ready because God is waiting to / wanting to use all of us.
– Let us position ourselves to FACE UP to see His view from every angle… circumspectly.
– Move with the new and what you know, so that God can do what you don’t know  … He can and will do the impossible … when we are in His gear.
Yes, Praise the Lord, all you nations;
Extol Him, all you peoples.
For great is His love toward us, and
The faithfulness of the Lord endures forever..
Praise the Lord  Psalms 118: 1-2

PTH Assistant Director, Ketchikan

PTH Prayer Strategy:

A new prayer strategy for Point To Hope – for October and the unfolding of next year’s plans … I say “new” but it is actually “of old” … from Ezekiel’s era!

There will always be battles in life as long as we are in the Lord’s army, right?  God vs. evil!  Going against the grain can be challenging, no doubt!  The season upon us is the FALL season.  However, I would propose we go against the grain and declare it is a season of Rise, not fall!  Just listen to the rumbling of many voices around us these days and it is easy to hear the sound of “against the grain” of His Word.  Still, there are countless stories of wars / battles in the Bible where just a handful of His faithful defeated multitudes and armies, because of HIS strength and mighty power!  Today is no different … IF we fight using His strategic weaponry.  Though it is the fall season in the natural, through the power of prayer and declaration, it can be a supernatural season of Rise!  Rise and Siege!

Siege – “a military operation in which enemy forces surround a town or building, cutting off essential supplies, with the aim of compelling the surrender of those inside.”  We are the enemy of evil! We are the military operation of the MOST HIGH and we will surround towns / buildings of situations, circumstances, disease;  We are the ones who will invade and protect the camp of the enemy … as the Holy Spirit leads….  

I have been listening to Nancy share what the Lord has been speaking to her about this next season for PTH.   I have been seeking the Lord regarding a prayer strategy for this next season and collaborating with Nancy.

Nancy has been casting vision that the Lord has given over this ministry and it is easy to see how the Lord is orchestrating something awesome; An expanse of His plans and purposes for the glory of His name! … expanding our tent pegs!   Easy to see … but the question is “How do we walk it out?” … His plans – His provision? … one prayer at a time – being very sensitive to the Holy Spirit and obedient … That’s how!  For sometime now, the Lord has given Nancy this key, this nugget:  When the Lord gives vision, He gives provision!  

Wouldn’t you agree, the Lord is continually building and refining all of us to be a beautiful bride! That is part of the provision – even if it means “uncomfortable”…getting the wrinkles out of our dress – what we are clothed in (mind sets, tradition, etc).  …  Still, we have One Hope, regardless of where we are or where we live.  Personally, this is one of the many attributes I love about PTH – that it doesn’t matter where we reside, we are all one unified part of His body.  And by now, I’m sure you’ve all noticed, the ministry of Point To Hope is not about “this ministry” … it is ALL about pointing to HOPE.  “There is one body and one Spirit – just as you were called to one HOPE” (Eph.4:4).   

Having said that, I feel like the Lord downloaded a prayer strategy from His Word that can be applied to PTH for this season and upcoming plans.  

As the Lord is expanding the tent pegs of PTH, I feel like this is a strategy to help nurture and facilitate growth for us individually, as well as PTH, and beyond, as a whole – His Body.  This is just a frame work for us to adapt as it works for us and those we labor among; to be led by the Holy Spirit.

You will notice at the bottom of this letter, specific targeted days.  You can plug your self in and partner with others.  Knowing, “you are not along” can be a great encouragement!

Here is the strategy:

In Ezekiel Chapter 4, the Lord commands Ezekiel to draw on a tablet the city of Jerusalem and then lay siege to it:  erect siege works against it, build a ramp, set up camps, use battering rams, set an iron wall, etc. And, it will be under siege, you shall besiege it!  A basic but profound prophetic act!

Simple strategy!  Here is an example:  Nancy is currently in the Ohio / W. Virginia area for the month of October.  I drew a picture of Nancy in my journal, and then sent a text to 3 people and together we laid siege (in prayer of agreement) to pull down the plans and purposes of the Lord; protection, etc., And He will RISE!  Very simple start of a strategy.

The demographics of everyday life don’t necessarily cooperate with physical proximity.  Hence, as prayer facilitator,” I want to encourage us, as His warriors, to somehow stay connected / reaching out to others in our areas:  texting, e-mail, phone, etc …. even if it is just knowing we are connected on the same day, spiritually speaking.  That is a powerful biblical principle in the Kingdom – “power of agreement.”

What is it, according to His Word, that we need to erect siege in order to pull down His plans and purposes???… personally,  meeting as a group, e-mail,….   Is it declaring siege against discord, lack of fear of the Lord, disobedience, complacency, weariness, lack of compassion / mercy, judgement, declaring HIS Word, etc. etc….    Whatever mountains or hills have been erected that “go against the grain of the Lord” …. the Word of the Lord says in Ezekiel Chapter 6, we can speak to those mountains and hills and the sword of the Lord will tear down those altars … not by our strength … by His sword – His Word!

In our siege, we are declaring His promises to RISE! … and the plans of the enemy to fall…. let us be specific – targeted because the Lord’s anointing and favor is upon His Word!

So there it is …. simple strategy!  

For your information, I have proposed the following prayer strategy table if you’d like to join in praying for PTH Ministries for the upcoming year every.   Every day is covered … “7” for complete.  

Use the weekly table below as a guideline; However it fits for your GENERAL location, and plug yourself / selves in as ONE in His body.  For example, maybe you don’t live in a northern state per se, yet you could consider yourself a “northern” part of a state:, etc.:

  Sunday:  Alaska
  Monday: Northern states / regions
  Tuesday: Outside the United States
  Wednesday: Interior states / regions
  Thursday:  Eastern states / regions
  Friday:  Southern states / regions
  Saturday:  Western states /  regions

See where your “lot” falls …..  His Word is that we pray without ceasing, so let us pray “lots”!

Here’s the deal:  There is no “wrong way” to plug yourself in to establish prayer coverage … I’m praying for His creativity and His leading for all.  I know many of you already gather for prayer, or have prayer established … I don’t want us to “reinvent the wheel” but I want to decree: “the wheels shall roll throughout His land!  Miles never have to be a barrier as we can connect with others in a variety of ways.  “Connect” is a broad term – declare it be broad!  Those He calls, He equips and I know the Lord is going to do awesome things through all!

Lastly, but extremely important:  Keep Nancy / PTH in prayer for this next season as decisions are being made (events / places of 2016) … plans / assignments for what  / when / where ….

Doomsday or God?

Dear Ones,
Trust your heart and start praying for the “doomsday” predictors….

It’s very obvious God had caused a shift. But, God had given me an assignment of how to pray… And to trust Him…

Prayer is the key for our country as it has always been. God has reiterated in 2 Chron. 7:14 for the last 3 years. It’s not just words, it’s a sincere call across the land to first recognize His voice as He is calling us … Listen (His sound is to trust and obey) … Seek His face … Seek His heart, His attention … Humble yourself … Lift Him up … Praise Him, worship Him …

Repent … And that sound is exactly that, to repent and pray for yourself, your family, all that concerns you. Repent for fear and doubt, lack of trust. Repent for a lack of holy hands lifted up without doubt or anger. Unbelief or unforgiveness. “Who may ascend to the hill of the Lord? He who has clean hands and a pure heart.” (1Tim. 2:8, Ps. 24:3-4)

Pray … for our government and all who have authority over us. Intercede and pray. (1Tim 2:1-4) Pray for both yourselves and your families for the things that you hear and repeat. Have you been speaking death and not life? Pray for our government, all the way to the top, especially in this hour of absolute shaking. (Heb. 12:27-28) Everyone is looking for another sign of doomsday. Yet even the Lord said nobody, not He nor the angels knows, only the Father, our Father who art in Heaven. (Mk 13:32) He says, “If I’m for you, who can be against you????” (Rom. 8:31) If you only believe!

When I returned to America after visiting 9 major countries (making it about 60 counties I’ve been to thus far), the Father was asking me to do and say the same thing, to go right to our U.S. Capital, Washington, D.C. He sent me to as many government seats as I could stand in front of and pray all the way from the White House to the Capital, including the U.S. Treasury to the Library of congress to the U. S. Supreme Court, all around the Capitol. And He revealed the secret of the conscience of our leaders, that simple mind set, that if I just cross my fingers, it’s just a “white lie.” If I just cross my fingers it will be okay, so we can get to the hopeful “end of the means…”

Well, that is why we need to pray and properly “seek His face.” If this is touching your heart, you will hear the call, recognize His voice (“My sheep hear my voice.” John 10:27), and heed His directions. Don’t lean on your own understanding. (Prov. 3:5-7) Don’t listen to the doomsday prophesies and warnings of man. Listen to His voice. Humbly seek His face, His heart, His truth, and “repent.” And “HE WILL HEAL OUR LAND…”

Now that’s what God said! When I was outside the White House, I saw a first. In all the years since Clinton’s time in office, I saw with my own eyes people going in and out of the Whitehouse … Thousands … Men and women and children of all nationalities and cultures… True witnesses … Yes, police and security were set in place, but such an open door I have never seen before. This is a sign of the times to come. But at the Capitol I saw a just a day of business as usual, our national leaders going in and out of the Capitol building at the eastern entrance.

At the front side I walked through thousands and thousands of Chinese people in an organized protest march, many from mainland China. They were protesting their right for democracy and freedom of beliefs. (Unfortunately most were basically new age believers and God not even a part of what they were doing.) But get this: They were free in our country to protest against mainland China on our American soil. And this group was the same group represented in Beijing that incited the Tiananmen Square Massacre of 1989.

Go figure. Only in America would our government issue such a permit to protest, and our governmental authority protecting their rights to free speech …. Hello, what about Christians’ rights here in America??? What about our freedom of speech as Christians? … What about the right to profess our faith? … Well back to this, what can we do??? Do what we are called to do! I’m reminding you all that we are not fighting flesh and blood, but principalities, rulers, unseen forces, the prince of darkness. (Eph. 6:10-13)

At the Capitol the Lord gave me a few visions. I’ll share others later, but this one is vital for the hour. We were finished doing what God asked us to do. So I stood up to leave, and the Lord gave me this open vision that scared me at first: I saw missiles coming from every direction flying at the Capitol building. You can imagine my terror. (Keep in mind I had just gone to 9 countries that did not have one kind word for America. We are called the modern day Babylon by those we consider to be our allies.) So the bombardment of missiles frightened me, to say the least. But God stopped my crazy thinking and said, “Look up.” I could see in full description, color, and shape, the fire coming out of the tail of each missile. Then, He said again “Watch” as the missiles seemed to me to be hitting the building. God asked me, “What’s happening? Oh Watchman, what do you see?” I saw the missiles gently disappearing as they touched the building. God said, “These are missiles of prayer from all over America. In this hour I’m calling My people to pray.” God says He wants to see callouses on His saints’ knees … America pray…” I will relent, if you will only repent!”

So many people only repeat the doomsday reports, the voice of the enemy, which only curses instead of blessings. (You keep repeating that which isn’t as if it is, so it will be. Rom. 4:17b) But God is calling loudly, and in a still small voice, saying, “Pray, humble yourselves, seek My face, repent … And I WILL HEAL YOUR LAND!!!! ”

Now whose report do you want to read?!?!?!

Dear friends, I ask you to join with me, pray with me, and agree with me for our country!!! God loves America, He told me 3 times. And we love God. Help me pray against those ‘white lies’ and lift up our country-men and -women making those serious decisions in this late hour. Pray with me that we all will be overcome with the revelation that we are operating within each one’s own manmade standards. (Jude 17-20) And repent, and call upon the Lord to awaken the Spirit within and be led by the Spirit, HIS SPIRIT! Then the Lord can begin to heal our land. It’s got to start somewhere, right? Why not with us?!?!?

Meanwhile, the Lord wants you to know you can pray anywhere. We must trust the Lord. He will hear, because you are seeking His face and know the battle is in prayer, on our knees, humbly, THAT HE MIGHT HEAL OUR LAND.

Where Jesus is, there is no darkness… Besides, where does worry get us?

Love you all, looking forward to seeing youl!
Nancy L. Haney

Draw Me Knee-er Blessed Lord


  Dear PTH Friends,

After traveling to 9 countries and various cities, Nancy and I (Sarah) returned to America on July 15th.  As noted in the last report, we flew to Washington D.C. the next day for a day trip to pray.  On Aug. 8th, I returned to work in Alaska and the same day Debbie Grimes flew in from Alaska to continue with Nancy and the other PTH leaders from Georgia and South Carolina.  Thus, since July 18th and continuing through Aug. 30th, the Point To Hope ministry schedule has been very full and has truly been fruitful:  Home meetings, Aglows, Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowships, church services, TV interviews (live and recorded), conferences (keynote speaker), individual and small group meetings, etc.  That was a tidbit of the schedule … here’s the fruit:  There have been reports of marriages restored, deliverance from years of nightmares, healings, a tumor that was suppose to be surgically removed but when the doctor went to perform the surgery the tumor was no where to be found, healed hearts / emotions from years of grieving, mourning, anger, etc.,  repentance / recommitment to the Lord, ministries breaking forth, prayer groups starting … people responding to the Word of the Lord! …and so much more.  

Having said that, you can see how your prayers have provided much strength, safety, and provision for many.  Nancy and other PTH team leaders have sure felt your prayers throughout this ministry time.  The meetings have been filled with the love and power of God.  I have to laugh sometimes because when I hear updates myself, each meeting seems to be more powerful the the last.  Salvations, recommitments to the Lord, healings, deliverances: body, heart, and / or mind.   Hey – when healing comes it means freedom and deliverance … deliverance and freedom!  End result, people can move forward in the plans and purposes HE has for their lives.  And that is fruit for His Kingdom.  So thank you for your continued prayers.  

Please keep these dates prayerfully in mind:

PTH Holy Spirit Encounter Conferences:  Theme – “War Cry! God’s Redemptive Rest”
    •    Ketchikan, Alaska:  Sept. 24th – 26th (Thur, Fri., Sat.)
    •    McArthur, Ohio:  Oct. 22nd-24th (Thurs., Fri., Sat.)

Ohio / West Virginia Ministry (various meetings, etc.): Watch the website for specific dates and locations for Oct. 9th – Nov. 9, 2015.  (will be posted on event calendar after schedule is finalized.)

Hey, if you have never attended a PTH conference in Ketchikan … now is the time!!!  Then you can say you have been to what is termed “Bush Alaska…  It’s biblical 🙂 … Think like Moses:  “So Moses thought, ‘I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.’ ”

If you have never been to a PTH Conference, I just want to encourage you to go … you will never be the same if you have ears to hear the Word.

I will conclude with this:  I know I have shared in previous reports about the messages Nancy has been sharing … and the Holy Spirit gives her nuggets that are specific for each group she is speaking to (even if the theme is the same) …. Fresh manna from heaven every day.  Another common message – yet not common at all, is the message the Lord has given Nancy about stirring Saints to pray.  God loves America but He said we need to have callouses on our knees.  So, I was thinking:  If we are not on our knees … are we on our bum?  (Figuratively speaking as we all know we can be in any position to pray).  Point being, are we “praying without ceasing” (1 Thes. 5:15) as the Word says we ought to?  So, here is the question I am asking myself:  “Am I a knee-er or a bummer?????”  I know what I want to be … I want His Word alive and active in me.  Hence, the old Hymn rings in my heart with a bit of an accent:  “Draw Me Knee-er, Knee-er Blessed Lord….”  Yes, I prefer callouses on my knees rather than my bum! …. respectfully :).  And this is not just about praying for America …. it is praying for all He has in store for His Glory!

Blessings to all, and again, thank you for your prayer coverage!
