Today, I restore your voice to you. It has been silenced for far too long!
Many have told you to stay quiet – to not speak up – even against the injustices that you have seen around you. But I say to you today, it is time to shout, to raise your voice, to speak and to sing. It is time to prophesy and call my children to come from the North, South, East and West, to return to me with singing, to come with shouts of joy back into my arms.
I release you to call those held in darkness into the light. To bring freedom to the captives. To bring healing to the hurting. To bring hope to the hopeless. Release your voice: speak aloud in all the highways and byways, and bring my children home.
I am waiting, longing for your voice to be heard once again!
The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour
A voice of one calling:
“In the wilderness prepare the way for the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
