What is the Black Robe Regiment?

What is the Black Robe Regiment?

Sound the Shofar

Throughout the state and each of our sixteen regions of the Texas Apostolic Prayer Network - sound the shofar on this Reformation Day.  Release the sound of worship.  Call the nation into righteousness.  Call the nation into alignment with God's kingdom and will.

On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses on the door of Castle Church of Wittenburg. He became the catalyst for the Protestant Reformation and has inspired millions of lives throughout history as a reformer in many nations.

It has been 495 years to this day! Not only will we celebrate, but we will gather together to pray this evening for a new reformation day in America!
Martin Luther himself said, "Prayer is a strong wall and fortress of the church; it is a goodly Christian weapon." I know that we, as the church and the bride of Christ, must pray for our nation! The elections are less than a week away. We must arise to the occasion with legislative prayers and soul-burning worship! Cindy Jacobs

Be Expectant!

One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
To behold the #beauty of the LORD
And to meditate in His temple (Psalm 27:4)
This morning in my prayers I started crying.  I was interceding for our congregation and its readiness for Sunday.  I was asking the Lord to make us expectant for His presence and glory. As I prayed I was reminded of my grandson TJ. 

He was jumping and chattering this morning before I took him to school.  Today he was going to the zoo.  He was making gorilla sounds and chattering like a monkey.  As I thought about him, the tears came.  Lord, make us that excited for You. Let us awaken every day with an expectancy to see Your face.  And especially as we gather corporately at Your throne in worship - let our hearts pump with joy, excitement, anticipation and expectancy.  We are coming before our God and King!

When You said, "Seek My face," my heart said to You,
"Your face, O LORD, I shall seek." (Psalm 27:8)

There have been several confirming words that declare that worship will be the key to breakthrough in this season.  It is the key to keeping Texas secure under the bridal canopy.

See Dutch Sheets' word below.  Cindy Jacobs and Dutch will be hosting Reformation Day worship at Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas on October 31 at 7 PM.  It is more than a gathering.  It is an expression or worship and prayer that it meant to shake the heavens prior to the elections on November 6. 

The City of Arlington is hosting a City-Wide evening of prayer and worship on Sunday, October 28 – the purpose – to come as one before His throne in order to worship and release righteousness into or city, state and nation. 

I AM STRONGLY EXHORTING THAT EACH REGION OF TEXAS gather for some sort of expression of worship and prayer during the week prior to Election Day.  The Lord will show you what to do.  No formula – just worship.  It might to large, small, city-wide or region wide. It might be worship offered the same night in homes or churches around your region.  You pick the date and the method, BUT I truly believe we are being called to worship!

And let your worship be worship.  This morning, Carolyn Hurst (intercessor and volunteer at Prince of Peace) shared a wonderful and powerful testimony of how the Lord commanded her to worship Him 45 minutes a day from July 17 through the end of November in 2000 (prior to President Bush's first election).  It is was to be pure worship.  She was not to use the time to intercede or to ask for anything (even in the songs).  She was to be totally devoted unto Him.  That's hard to do!  Oftentimes our worship shifts into songs of "asking the Lord to do something for us."  Let this be a season when we simply declare: "Lord, it is ALL about YOU!"

Dear Friend,

        Three weeks ago one of my daughters had a dream concerning the presidential elections. In the dream, she was attending a campaign rally for one of the candidates. (I'm not revealing which one because I don't want to politicize the strategy the Lord gave me through the dream.) My daughter stood in the receiving line of this candidate, at the halfway point of the line, waiting to shake his hand. When he came to her a shocked and panicked expression came over him. He re-gathered his composure and said, "You're the music lady, aren’t you?"
       Boldly and confidently she replied, "That's right, I am."
        He stretched out his hand to shake hers. When their hands met, his hand lost all strength and fell limp. He pulled it away, re-gathered his strength and tried again. Once more, he lost his strength and his hand went limp. This happened a third time, after which he was so shaken and frightened that he turned and walked away, not finishing the second half of the receiving line.
        I believe the interpretation of the dream is obvious: the key to insuring that God’s choice wins this election is worship—the "music lady" is the worshiping Bride of Christ. As simple as it sounds, if the Church will worship over these elections, Psalm 22:3 and 149:5-9 will take place. This will remove the strength from one of the candidates and empower the other. Our worship will exalt the Lord and enthrone Him over our land. This is a simple yet powerful strategy.
        Interestingly enough, some are already doing this. There is currently 40 days of 24/7 worship taking place on the White House grounds. You can find more details at I encourage you to support this. I will be going to DC at least once, perhaps more, to join them in worship.
       Because of this dream, I am going to host A Night of Worship Over America at Christ For The Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas, from 7:00-10:00 P.M. CST on Friday, October 26. I am asking believers all across America to join us via live streaming (, or even hold your own live worship gathering on the same night. Together we will exalt and declare the Lordship of Jesus over America, and release His will and His favor over the elections. Imagine this happening in every state simultaneously. The results will be powerful!
     Help me spread the word. Let’s make sure God’s will is accomplished in these upcoming elections. "The music lady" will make the difference.

Running with Him,

Dutch Sheets

Unlocking the Destiny

Last Saturday, September 29, I was honored and privileged to participate in America for Jesus 2012 in Philadelphia. According to the America for Jesus website, the gathering was...
A solemn assembly to summon together the whole body of Christ to pray for the church and our nation. Based on the text in 2 Kings 2:19-22, we believe God is calling His people to bring “the salt” which is the church to the head of the waters where the foundation of our American liberty was birthed in Philadelphia and to intercede for God to heal the land. 2 Kings 2:19-22 19And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren.  20And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him. 21And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.  22So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake.

Independence Hall Replica Key
A couple of weeks before we journeyed to Philadelphia, I received an impression from the Lord that I was use a key to unlock the destiny of the church and the nation. 
The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder; So he shall open, and no one shall shut; And he shall shut, and no one shall open. (Isaiah 22:22 NKJV)
This did not surprise me.  In the past the Lord has instructed me to use keys for prophetic acts.  You might recall from previous blogs that my name Schlueter means "Keeper of the Keys of the Prison."

Oftentimes when we are out on a prayer assignment I will search for keys for my collection.  Knowing that the Lord was sending us to Philadelphia, I researched the National Park Service Site for Independence Hall and discovered that the visitor center gift shop offered a replica of the key which opened Independence Hall.

When Kay and I arrived in Philadelphia we journeyed to Independence Mall and I headed directly to the gift shop.  I began immediately to proclaim that "the destiny of the nation" from this historical root was being unlocked.

One problem.  As I arrived at American for Jesus on Saturday, I was told by the leaders that my portion of the event would be prayers regarding the deadly sin of gluttony.  I had originally been assigned "slothfulness" which would have fit the theme of "calling the church and nation to new life or to wake up" but what I am supposed to do with gluttony?  Before going on the stage, I was informed that Rick Torrison (the other coordinator from Texas) and I were to "CALL THE ARMY OF GOD TO COME FORTH!" 

With the key firmly in my hand I unlocked the shackles that were on the church (corporately and individually) and called the church and the nation to come forth.  I unlocked the church and released it into its destiny.  I called the nation into its God-given destiny.
