Prophetic Word and Strategies for 2019, Part 2

LIVE webinar: Healing from Emotional Abuse | June 7, 2024

A few days ago, I released the first part of the prophetic word for 2019 (with accompanying strategies) the Lord has given me. In that post, I discussed how I believe 2019 is like final exam week. Please be sure to read that post in addition to this one.

Here is the next part of the prophetic word for 2019 the Lord has shown me, with more strategies to clarify how to act on the word:

1. His word for the year is “Contend.”

The Lord is calling people back to their old place of contending–but contending is no longer going to be laborious; it’s going to be glorious instead.

That is not to say that contending will be easy. I know it’s wonderful to hear prophetic words about next seasons being easy, and I love to read those words as much as the next person. But, that’s not what the Lord is showing me for 2019.

The Lord is showing me that 2019 is going to be a challenging year. Final exam weeks are always challenging! However, I believe it will also be the most victory-filled year we as a Body of Christ have ever experienced.

In order to see those victories manifest in our lives, we’re going to have to contend.

YOU are going to have to contend for whatever you want the Lord to do for you in 2019. It’s not that Father isn’t ready, eager, and willing to pour out His blessings on you. HE IS.

However, you passed a test recently. As a result of passing that test, you got promoted to a higher level. This higher level is a place in which you will experience higher-level warfare than you have ever experienced before. You will need to contend in 2019 because the Lord wants to bring you every victory–but you are now facing more opposition than you have ever faced.

2. The Scripture the Lord told me to stand on for the year is Hebrews 4:16:

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

Some of the prophetic strategies He gave me to go with this verse include:

3. Reclaim the night watches in prayer.

People in the early church woke up to pray multiple times during the night. They prayed multiple times a day. King David of ancient times set aside seven special times a day for a praise break (Psalm 119:164). Our modern church has let the night watches–and the day watches, too, sometimes–fall to the ground.

Beginning now, the Lord is calling His people to reclaim the night watch. Fourth watch (from 3:00 – 6:00 AM) is going to be particularly important and strategic, but you may hear the Lord calling you to prayer at any hour of the night. When you hear Him, say the words of Samuel the prophet: “Speak, Lord, for Your servant hears.”

The Lord is pouring out an anointing for nighttime prayer that we have never seen before.

He is re-claiming the night for His glory. In the nighttime hours, He is revealing the treasures that have been hidden in darkness. As it says in Isaiah 45:1-3:

Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held—to subdue nations before him and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut:

‘I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, am the God of Israel” (Isaiah 45:1-3)

The Lord desires to sit VISIBLY enthroned on all your circumstances. This is the year in which He will bring Himself more glory in your life than ever before. And if you want Him to do so, you are going to have to contend.

What does it mean “to contend”?

It means to pray violently, fiercely, knowing what outcome you want based on what the Lord promised you, and continuing to pray–refusing to give up until you get what you asked God for.

Contending prayer is violent prayer. It’s not violent in the physical sense, but violent in the sense that contending prayer grabs hold of Jesus’ feet, climbs up in Father’s lap, and wraps your arms around Holy Spirit’s waist to hold Father, Son, and Holy Spirit captivated and compelled to answer now, specifically, and quickly.

People who contend in prayer believe God. They get a word from Him, based on His written Word–the Bible–and they stand, refusing to give up. Contenders refuse to be silent. They give Him no rest until He does what He promised and makes His name a praise on the earth (Isaiah 62:6-7).

And in 2019, the Lord is calling people to reclaim their place and time of contending.

Many who used to keep the fourth watch in prayer have drifted away from doing so. The same is true of the other prayer watches as well. The Lord is calling us as His people to come back to both the watch and the places on the wall from which we have fallen.

Reclaiming the night watches is going to be easy, starting now.

You will find the Lord waking you and calling you to pray. You will have to overcome the urges of your flesh in order to answer, but you will find as soon as you do that your spirit will dominate over your flesh instantly.

From today forward, you will feel a holy ease and anointing to reclaim the night watches in prayer. In many cases, losing sleep will not even make you tired. The health changes Father talked to me about here in this prayer for weight loss and health will help you not be tired, but Father’s anointing will do the rest.

5. You will also experience a new anointing on your prayer language in 2019.

Father showed me that many people have let their prayer languages lie fallow. For many people, the gift of tongues has become to you like a common thing. Praying in the Spirit has felt like meaningless babble to you for awhile now.

However, despite your feelings, your prayer language was never meaningless babble. It was always–and has always been–a key to unlock the heavenlies for you. You didn’t realize it, but the enemy was stealing your revelation and use of your prayer language by obscuring its wonder with fatigue and cynicism toward what felt like mundane charismata.

Starting today, you are going to war with your prayer language.

You will find Holy Spirit’s anointing on your prayer language like never before. Don’t be afraid to pray in the Spirit in the car, while you drive, while you shower, while you work, or any other time–even if social mores dictate that you do so under your breath.

Your prayer language is the language of the Spirit, and He is unleashing barrages of declarations and decrees that will enforce His will on the earth. He is doing this through the prayer languages of His people.

6. Next, make a list of things to contend for.

You need a prayer list this year. Even if you have never used a prayer list before, you need a prayer list now. You will feel the anointing of Holy Spirit on your list as Jesus pours out His Spirit of grace and supplication on you while you are faithful to pray.

Contend for the things on your list over and over. Be one of the people of faith that Jesus said He will be looking for in Luke 18:1-8, which says:

Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man.

Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’

Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”

Jesus said that real faith is demonstrated by persistent, unyielding prayer.

In 2019, be one of the people who have real faith. Make a list of the miracles for which you are contending–and not miracles alone, but everything that Father has laid on your heart–and stand on the wall in prayer until you see every one of them accomplished.

(Helpful strategy to consider: Father God told me to write my list directly in my Bible, right next to Hebrews 4:16–with my 7 “I am” statements there as well. This has been very convenient and is helping me remember to contend in prayer daily.)

7. Also in 2019, ask God to open doors you never saw coming.

Pray and intercede for double doors to open–and for the opening of doors and opportunities that were previously barred shut.

Father God has allowed delays and hindrances in many things because the solutions you thought would solve your problem were not good enough. Every closed door means a better solution somewhere, for all things work together for your good if you love God and are called according to His purpose.

Therefore, pray and claim God’s promise to open doors and shut other doors as only He can do.

8. Last but not least, 2019 is the year of the pioneer and the year of the entrepreneur.

God has gone before you through a wilderness season and even into the Promised Land. Now, however, He is expanding your vision. He is re-awakening many, especially in the fields of business.

Many failed business ideas have made entrepreneurs in the Body feel like failures. However, Father God sees all of it as part of His building process. He is going to place His hand softly onto entrepreneurs and visionaries in 2019, thrusting them out gently again into the realms of business. This time, however, it won’t hurt.

The Lord says to entrepreneurs and pioneers:

“Many paths before you appear fallow, but one of them will blossom like a rose. You have done well, good and faithful servant, and have served me in ways you will not know until I show you your fruit in the halls of Heaven.

Now, however, I will reward you. Expect it to be difficult in the sense that you will have to work, but expect it to be easy in the sense that I make all things new. You will see the difference in this season, for it is the season of your reward.”

2019 is final exam week.

It will be a challenging year in which the serious shall obtain everything. But it will also be a rewarding year, for you will see the greatest victories of your life manifest this year.

To see those victories, you will need to contend like never before–but you will find the Captain and Lord of hosts in your prayer closet with you. His Spirit of grace and supplication is eager to work with you to glorify Father’s name on the earth, and you shall be the vessel of His praise and victory.


Is Holy Spirit using this prophetic word for 2019 to confirm what He has already told you? If so, please leave a comment below! I’d love to hear what Father God is saying to you!


  1. Jamie this word has me so excited!!!!! I’ve been feeling a desire to pray during the hours of 3 am and 6 am but I would struggle to wake up and stay awake. I am also very excited to hear that this is a time to contend… I feel like God has been showing me that in baby steps, by contending for very small things to build my strength. My only problem is that I tend to struggle with striving. Please pray for a revelation from God about contending vs. striving and please pray that I would be counted among the serious ones.

    1. YES!!! I believe you will be counted among the serious ones, dearest Sandra. I believe you will. Big (((((hugs))))) to you!!!

      1. dexter james says:

        Yes it is conformation for me.

    2. Millicent says:

      This is so refreshing to know. I used to wake up at 4am to pray and study my bible until 7ish to 8ish but recently I have been waking up around 3am to do so. God has been revealing things to me in the past few days that I’d never would have known. One of such things is learning how to linger in His presence after I have poured out my heart to Him in prayers. Ps 23:5 has resounded a lot with me

    3. Jamie,

      I rarely comment, but I had to on this particular post of yours.

      For the past few days, I have been waking up between the hours of 3:00 a.m. and 6:00. I am using this time to pray for my family, the leaders of my church, it’s members, for others, and for my own healing, direction, and restoration.

      I have also been having quite emotional conversations with God — reminding Him of what I feel I need in order to fulfill His Purpose for me. This practice has been difficult at times as He seemed silent.

      Your sharing is such confirmation for me that I am on the right path — that I am being birthed and experiencing those pains as I move forward. But, I can be assured that He will supply my needs and continue to strenthen me as I move into new territory of taking risks and (re) building trust.

      I continue to pray for you, as well, Jamie.

      Thank you so much for all that you do and for who you are — a treasure.

  2. Hi Jamie this is my first time reading your blog and my God!!!!! You confirmed what I have yet to express about prayer and praying at night. I’m also an entrepreneur and I’m sitting here creating my content for may website and every time I finish something I hear keep going. 2019 indeed will be the year of the entrepreneur! Thank you God for this vessel Jamie. I pray that you Jamie continue to have your ears tuned into the voice of the Lord. God Bless you!

    1. Hi Karen! Great to meet you. I’m so glad you’re working on your website! May Abba Father multiply His grace and peace to you and help you do the work for Him and His Kingdom!

  3. So our spirits are always w Him I’m hoping because in the middle of my mess He had me write some things that scared me..after listening to Jesse (he’s a go getter). Then u came w the seven list so I’ve got 7 and 7 more. Also wants me to review the temptations again know in my knower.
    I’m excited about the prayer closet. A dear sister had meetings at her place and her prayer closet was electric. The world needs authentic love that meets them and I can’t but He can and does w million people at once he’s so cool.
    Side note: my first testimony of a painful yuck given half hearted kinda put me back there oooh angry and hurt and wanting to go back on my promise but God intervened and the coolest thing no more it’s not the right spirit Father forgive me and we… and anyway HS is power (for good) and thank you for your prayers and “blog”
    (Last thing). My blessed spouse in in Tel Aviv going to
    Jerusalem Friday! So excited for him and wanted to share. Oh the places you’ll go. 🙂

    It’s 2:08am and I have just been reading the prophetic word for 2019 part 2.( don’t even know how I stumbled upon this blog/site/ministry 48hrs ago so I am yet to see part 1)
    I am amazed, humbled and shocked by virtually every detail you shared.
    For the sake of time and space I will just bullet proof this.
    A) Three weeks ago I woke up with the word CONTEND and I shared with my biological siblings
    B) Of late I have just been waking up inexplicably early to pray 1am today, 2am the other day
    C)You say 2019 but three days ago after prayer I was led to the book of Ester. I am not a bible scholar but I believe the Holy Spirit led me study the months but it seems the main events in Ester happened in (Dec-Jan I might be wrong) and I felt the Lord was saying to me start CONTENDING.
    D)I don’t consider myself business minded but three weeks ago I found myself registering a Ltd company. In total it cost me £11.38 which is less than $20. All the paperwork everything, including the company bank accounts, which came with an overdraft facility for good measure
    E) After finishing reading the book of Ester I was led to Joshua 5:13-15 the portion about “the captain of the host of the lord)

  5. Thank you Jamie for being the mouth of God.
    God has given me many promises …Psalm 24 and Psalm 21 and I’m believing Him to perfect that which concernth me!
    Right now, I am in my midnight hour;contending with the giants that are occupying my promised land.But in Jesus Mighty name, I shall destroy them!They compass me about like bees but in the name of the Lord,they are quenched like fire of tongues! I and the children God has given me are made for signs and wonders!!!

  6. These are very encouraging
    It is confirmation of what the Lord had been telling mr
    Thank you so much Jamie

  7. Two weeks ago, I had a dream about being a pioneer woman. I had on the dress and the bonnet like from little House on the prairie. This is the second dream of mine that you’ve confirmed, I just don’t know what it means.

    1. Hey Jamie. If you grab my video teaching about “Healing the Pioneer Spirit,” you will know what the pioneer thing is all about. It’s over on my Gumroad store if you’re interested – – and the coupon code “dream” will get you 20% off today only.

  8. Our Father is amazing!!! I desire to be a woman of faith and to pass this test of a year 2019! I had enjoyed this post very much, my joy and strenth are renewed! Thank you very much??

  9. Ada Babajide says:

    What a powerful word! So spot on. The scriptures also tally with what the Lord has been saying to us, l agree completely and ask for grace to stand upon my watch , grace to contend until his word manifests, and grace to stay in His presence till my rod buds, and blossoms like a rose. Hallelujah! God bless you beloved sister, for this ministry.

  10. Elizabeth says:

    Hi Jamie,
    On Monday I couldn’t sleep went to bed at 10.00pm at Eleven I was awake then went back to sleep woke up again at 1.00pm I started praying though in my heart by three I still could not sleep so I woke up and decided to get busy.
    I was reporting to work and trust me not a single minute did I feel tired or as if I didn’t sleep through the night.
    I give God all the glory and for using you and bringing us this revelation from the All Might, love how He confirms his word.
    “He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel” (Psalm 103:7 NKJV).
    Stay blessed.

  11. Thank you
    I’ve been struggling though the nights for a LONG time (thanks to abuse) and have been turning, in tears fears and desperation, to podcasts, bible and prayer from around 3-6am. Thank you for giving me new vision and hope for this time slot, and freedom to stop yearning for sleep instead. I am an ‘infant’ in all this, and am just learning how to pray, how to connect with the presence of God who seems SO distant in the most troubling of times. But HE IS THERE. And He DOES care.

    1. He sure does care, Nina. I’m proud of you for seeking Him during that time! And as you continue to seek Him, He will reveal Himself to you more and more!


  13. Rebecca Ditsele says:

    Hi Jamie

    I have my 7 , I am statements on my side as I write this comment . Thank you for the Part 2 Prophetic word and strategies . I always pray at midnight from 00:00 – 02:00 am but it’s almost two weeks now Jamie that I find it so difficult to pray . Wake up yes I will but I will remain so quiet , in my heart I will only thank God .I will only thank Him without saying a word of prayer ,from there I will go to sleep . Jamie if this is a problem in my prayer life , please pray for me because I feel I need to contend .
    God bless you for the Prophetic Word And Strategies for 2019.

    1. Rebecca,

      I just read your comment and felt led to reply. I have recently been feeling oppressed when I attempt to pray aloud — as if I’m tired of hearing my own voice.

      In combination of recent messages I’m receiving at my church and now through Jamie, I truly believe this is the enemy attempting to discourage us my keeping us silent.

      I just started a study at my church on Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyers and our pastor warned us of how Satan would be working overtime as we dig into this particular study.

      The weapons that we have been introduced to thus far are Prayer, Song, and Scripture. Playing worship music clears oppressive energy, reading Scripture out loud, and having REAL conversation with Jesus — without following a script but with respect, and acknowledging His Sovereignty and Power which forces the enemy to flee.

      Satan is so sneaky — so devious & he has been studying each one of us for a long time. He knows our weaknesses and insecurities and plays on them. Continue to fight back through these weapons, and know that I am praying for you, too.

  14. This for me point to point are things i have felt in my Spirit but wasnt sure and fear had creeped in am writing each point and being obedient to the instructions as you share,The grace of the Lord abound,DId i miss point number 4 or it was the numbering cant seem to find it,Thank you somuch need to action point 6 and 7

  15. Maria Torrealba says:

    if you love this word it is beautiful, I particularly like the opening hours to enter the throne of grace, the night is my tomorrow and I have noticed that I have flown more in my prayer language and I have had more strength for the day thanks

  16. Tameeka Brundidge says:

    Yes. This is in alignment to what the Lord has been sharing with me. Thanks again!

  17. Marilyn Hann says:

    Thank you so much Jamie I am a intercessor I really needed to hear that prophetic word from God because. I was going through in my mind because it seems like nothing was going right in my life it seems like the more I prayed things got harder but thank you for that word of contending prayer it really encourage me to go on and not faint alone the way. Because it is time for us to go deeper in prayer I believe that 2019 is my year that was a confirmation I receive the word of the Lord I don’t know how I got to your page but it was meant g or me to get that word

  18. You are a huge blessing Ma’am. I have been hooked to your website for days. I even write out the prayers into a book. I’ve been going through hard times upon hard times, but i found the answers here. You make meaning of scriptures i normally meditate and move on so powerful in my heart. May you continue to yield to God as He uses you for His Glory. I am glad i found this site. God’s love is more real to me as i read your blog. God’s Grace!

  19. Arowolo Seun Samuel says:

    This is powerful word. Shortly as I finish praying I was lead to open my email to check I saw the message its got my attention, Behold I saw the word go has for me. It’s really motivated me spiritually the more. More grace to do exploit Woman of God.

  20. Julie Filter says:

    SO MANY THINGS. First, the mention of the re-awakening of vision is EXACTLY what I’ve been praying for recently, and this deep burning in my soul that I can’t turn off to leap into business, even though I’m still figuring out what that even will be! I’ve been a homeschooling SAHM to my 7 kids for 13 years and I know the Lord is leading me to let this be our last year of homeschooling. It is time to trust Him entirely, even that He will go before my children as a better provider and protector than I can hope to be (fear has been a major player in my homeschooling decision). And this morning I was awoken by three loud knocks on our bedroom door that I swore was one of our children, but when I got up and opened the door, no one was there and not one child was even seemingly awake (it was just shy of 6am). I had a sense it might have been the Lord, but I blew that off as silly. If that happens again, I’ll surely be ready. It has happened before, but just as Jamie mentioned about letting certain disciplines fall aside because of thinking them “charismatically embellished,” I have not trusted them quite so much as before. No more. I desire that deep connection with my Abba again, and the amazing beauty of spiritual oneness with intimate prayer. It’s time to contend. YES. CONTENDING in 2019.

  21. Thanks Jamie for this word. This is a confirmation why the strong urge to shift my prayer vigil to 3 a.m why am seriously contending for prophecies spoken over my life. And over the promises of God. I seriously didn’t think I’d make it 2018.but God held me and I sailed through it inspite of it all. Lord I thank you.

  22. Rebecca Ditsele says:

    Hi Jamie

    Thank you for your response on the battlefield of the mind , I am sorry I responded so late ,unforseen domestic matters needed my attention . You are really a God send , now I know that even though I am quiet I should know that the enemy is at work . Thank you for the weapons that you mentioned that I have to use to make the enemy flee . Most of all this Jamie is knowing that you are praying for me .I did not know that I was under oppression even though this state was worrying me a lot .

    Thank you woman of God , may He continue to elevate and use you for His children here on earth . God richly bless you .

  23. Hi Rebecca, that was actually from me, Bethany, and I am so glad that you found encouragement and insight as I also have. Jesus is indeed with each one of us and is our Protector, and in the end, He has the final word.

    I, too, am beyond grateful for you, Jamie and for your sacrifice, selflessness, and transparency — you are such a tremendous Blessing to all of us. <3

  24. Victoria Rosanwo says:

    Thanks alot Jamie for this revelation of prophetic declaration for 2019 it’s indeed a superb and fantastic message i do wake up severely to use the loo literally every hour or one and half hours and each time that happens is either song of worship that’ll occur into my heart/mind then I’ll be forced to say something in prayer you’re truly blessed with an anointing of true revelation may Gos be with you and your family

  25. Thank you Father has been waking me up again during my previous 4th Watch Prayer Time and I have noticed previous paths reappearing.

  26. ongom Belmost says:

    Th word of God in Isaiah 45:1-3 surely is the word for the season and again the wold in Hebrews 4:16 is powerful. Saints of God lets proclaim and believe the world of God for it yes and amen. God bless you and answer your heart desires in 2019.

  27. Blessings Jamie in the Name of the Lord

    This is indeed the WORD OF THE LORD for me personally. Thank you for giving us divine trategies in order to lay hold of what the Lord has for us under the Anointing in Jesus Name.

  28. Chestener says:

    Hello again. The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me!
    If started to tell you how the Lord has lead me here! So many things you
    have shared,I see now the Lord used as steps, guideposts, leadings to
    tangible, manifested instructions.
    To God be the glory for you obedience.
    I just can’t tell it all!!!


    I come from Kenya. The first time I read the prophetic Word on 18th January 2019 the Lord helped me to pray. I slept at midnight because of the work I was doing and was exhausted. The Lord swept me with the prophetic Word that I had read in the day I woke up 4 times to pray by the time I was waking up fully it was 6.00 am and I did not struggle at all. I did many extra ordinary things in the day. it has been a great experience in God’s presence that has continued and I confirm that this is the Word of the Lord to contend in 2019.

    Blessed be the name of the Lord. Your materials are such a blessing.

  30. Irene D Jones says:

    Amen. this is a word I have been feeling

  31. Lisa Sharpe says:

    Back in October there was something that I really wanted from the Lord in relation to ministry traini ng. There were some big obstacles. As I prayed aski ng God to open doors for me, I felt the Lord say, “contend”. In other words, I was going to have to contend for it, not just in the spirit realm but in the natural as well. As I did that in obedience, he not only cleared my path, but supplied full provision for it. Once I did the small amount of contending I had to do (which seemed huge) the rest was indeed easy. I believe that word still applies and that this is no time to be timid. Thanks Jamie for confirming what I believe God is speaki ng to me too!!

  32. Meeckral Williams says:

    This word is right on time for me ! The Lord woke me up at 4:40 this morning and told me three times loudly to WAKE UP! So I finally got up and prayed in the Spirit this morning.

  33. TeacherLady says:

    This is a confirming word for me. I actually woke up sometime after 3 this morning and I remember thinking about the night watch. Also, an intecessor friend of mine asked me last week if my husband and I had a business. At the time, I replied that he and some friends had one, but forgot that I had opened an ETSY shop back in November (mainly because I had not made any sales. This week I made my first . Wow!

  34. Right on point for my ministry and personal life. I love what God is doing through your life and in your life. You really heard our Abbah Father.

  35. Liz Boles says:

    This is amazing. Parts of this are a confirmation for me. I will be contending!

  36. As I came out of 2018 into 2019 the Lord spoke to me that I needed to be adamant and fight going into the new year. Your word definitely resonates with me.

  37. Moji Delano says:

    Dear Jamie,
    Your blog has inspired and helped me more than I can even put in words. The HolySpirit used your posts to bring me so much comfort and clarity.
    On the part you talked about entrepreneurs, I was blown when I read it. Reason is because, this evening a Pastor who holds Wednesday prayers on IG every Wednesday with women ( handle is @rtwni) said EXACTLY what you said. Indeed, the Spirit of God is ONE! To him be all the glory and may he bless you too. AMEN.

  38. Wow!Thank you Jamie!
    The Lord said this year he would reset,recalibrate me!

  39. Marietjie Naude says:

    This year I have a big shift to overcome in my business. It is not easy for me. This word is confirmation that The Lord will provide. Thank you!
