Over our 21 years here in Jerusalem, the Lord has every few years dramatically confirmed Scriptures we were proclaiming through sending at that exact moment an earthquake, lightning, or hail as mentioned in the Scriptures we were proclaiming.
This happened again to us on January 20th, 2021, Inauguration Day in America. Here is a report with what we were proclaiming, confirmations with hail (a fairly rare phenomena here in Jerusalem), and the times (in Israel Standard Time).
When I (Patricia) started the noon watch, I began singing about freedom from lies. Hail started hitting the window near the piano and as I watched the hail come down, I thought of a Scripture we have often proclaimed over governments of nations, Isaiah 28:17:
“I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plumb line; hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie, and water will overflow your hiding place.” – Isaiah 28:17
Rick was downstairs, and took the following photos of light hail on a table on the balcony of our apartment:
By the time Rick came upstairs, the hail had died down some, but as we were worshipping he suddenly felt an urgency to read from Exodus 9:13-33 about the plague of hail. The damage from this hail was a severe strike on the economy that was supporting Pharaoh. When he said the word “hail” in verse 23, it started hailing again!
Soon the sun came out and it stopped hailing. When I started reading from Isaiah 28 we entered into deep intercession about Jerusalem and Israel, and the need for greater unity here.
Then we prayed for the Body of Messiah, identifying with them and weeping. When I started reading in Isaiah 28 again, I got to the part about hail sweeping away the “refuge of lies” (Isaiah 28:17), and there were strong gusts of wind and larger hail stones began pouring down!
This is a photo we took of the heavy amount of hail that had fallen on the window while we were praying:
Isaiah 28:21,22a goes on to say:
“The Lord will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim. He will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon — to do his work, his strange work, and perform his task, his alien task. Now stop your mocking, or your chains will become heavier.” – Isaiah 28:21,22a
Rick felt he should proclaim Joshua 10:9-14 about Gibeon. In Joshua 10:11 it says:
“…the Lord hurled large hailstones down on them, and more of them died from the hail than were killed by the swords of the Israelites.” – Joshua 10:11
While Rick proclaimed that passage, it was still hailing. The moment he finished proclaiming the passage, the hail stopped again!
Here is a photo of the blue skies that appeared:
Rick then read the rest of that passage, Joshua 10:16-25, about the defeat and death of the five kings of the Amorites, who were leading the battle against Israel.
He felt it was significant that they were Amorites, as on Monday morning, before we began our watch, he had sensed, and posted on our “Government Watch” chat concerning those opposing God’s purposes in government these verses:
“Yet I destroyed the Amorites before them, though they were tall as the cedars and strong as the oaks. I destroyed their fruit above and their roots below. I brought you up out of Egypt and led you forty years in the wilderness to give you the land of the Amorites.” – Amos 2:9,10
He then proclaimed Job 38:22-28, 31-35. Job 38:22 says:
“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow or seen the storehouses of the hail, which I reserve for times of trouble, for days of war and battle?” – Job 38:22
That verse reminded us of a very significant night, as it was one of the verses the Lord gave us on March 28th, 2002 when we gathered our Succat Hallel community together for 24 hours of prayer.
We were meeting in a church in the Old City for the first watch of the night, singing “Arise, O Lord, let Your enemies be scattered!” Little did we know, the Prime Minister of Israel and his cabinet leaders were right across the street from our prayer meeting having an emergency government meeting to plan what to do about recent terror attacks!
They met almost all night to decide about a military operation in response to a major suicide bombing that had just taken place at a Passover Supper celebration in Netanya. The next day, Israel launched “Operation Defensive Shield”, which proved very effective in destroying the terror cells responsible for this and other suicide bombings of innocent victims.
As we desperately prayed through that night until the evening of the next day for Israel, three different teams received Scriptures to proclaim about hail and thunderstorms. Each time verses were proclaimed about hail, it started hailing.
We felt the presence of the Lord so strong in those dark clouds. He truly rides on the clouds, answering the prayers of His people.
We thought back to that significant moment in Succat Hallel, while on January 20, 2021 during our watch the Lord was once again speaking to us from the heavens! We were in awe of the kindness of the Lord.
The Lord wants so much for us to love each other! We prayed for just a short time with compassion for those who disagree with us and the Lord answered from heaven with hail!
His heart is so full of love, and He is not willing that any should perish but all come to repentance, including us! He wants us to humble ourselves and repent of things like wrong attitudes and lack of love. Then He will hear from heaven, forgive our sin and heal our land.
We went back and forth praying for the USA and Israel, as our nations are so connected. In this atmosphere of weeping and receiving the heart of God, it was like we were having a conversation with God through the hail. He kept saying “amen” as he sent hail exactly when we would proclaim the word “hail” from the scriptures!
The hail would start and stop. While the skies were still blue, Rick began to proclaim Psalms 78:47-55, about the Lord fighting against Pharaoh and the gods of Egypt with plagues.
When Rick read verse 49,
“He unleashed against them his hot anger, his wrath, indignation and hostility—a band of destroying angels.” – Psalms 78:49
Rick suddenly started to proclaim, “We send forth today a band of destroying angels to carry forth the anger of god against the Pharaoh spirit to destroy and cut off their financial supply”. As he proclaimed that, the blue skies suddenly turned again to strong gusts of wind and hail!
The winds were significant, as in Hebrews 1:7 it states:
“And regarding the angels He says, ‘He makes His angels winds, And His ministers a flame of fire.’” – Hebrews 1:7 [NASB]
The strong winds and hail quickly died down, and Rick proclaimed,
“Then the Lord awoke as from sleep, as a warrior wakes from the stupor of wine. He beat back his enemies; he put them to everlasting shame. Then he rejected the tents of Joseph, he did not choose the tribe of Ephraim; but he chose the tribe of Judah, Mount Zion, which he loved. He built his sanctuary like the heights, like the earth that he established forever. He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skilful hands he led them.” – Psalms 78:65-72
We prayed that those who are being dominated by a globalist, controlling spirit, would be delivered and lovingly shepherded by a David that the Lord will establish over them.
Here is a photo of the blue skies from our balcony taken right after we had finished this time of prayer and worship:
We believe that the Lord was giving His “amen” in confirmation that He is arising and will arise to judge every Pharaoh spirit. We pray that the fear of the Lord may come upon those governmental leaders in any nations that are tools of the Pharaoh spirit.
May they not harden their hearts, as Pharaoh did to his eventual, final judgment. May this be a season of great angelic activity in response to the people of the Lord trusting him, receiving His grace to walk in love, and proclaiming His Word over their nations.
May He strengthen us all to persevere in this epic spiritual battle for truth, humility and justice.

Wow! Thank you, for the amazing prayer! It ,makes me tremble.
Very interesting indeed. Yesterday (23rd jan) we had exactly the same sort of weather & we got caught in 2 hail showers while out walking the dog ( live in Essex north side of River Thames, 30 miles from London ). Could you put me on the government watch please? I am part of Annette’s Echad One New Man ministry & very much appreciated your word last week. Thank you
I’m very blessed this morning by your testimony from 1-20-21.
It brought to heart & memory, 24/7 prayer around our state of Maine. It led to seven years of foster care which seem to have ended last year. It is time for the nights of prayer & days of public testimony & works of mercy. Thank you for being faithful in day & night incense to our Everlasting Father!
Thank you for your relationship with our Father God. I read these as soon as they come in. I’m a worshiping warrior intercessor. My hearts desire is to be possessed by God so that I can pray from His Heart, and will be instant in season and out of season. I know and serve in Identification Repentance and now want to include Identification Intercession. I was commissioned as a Watchman on the Wall for Israel by Robert Stearns of Eagles’ Wings, USA. I know my spot on the Wall. When I pray I see Jerusalem from my advantage point. I believe that God has put you in my life for prayer insights straight from His Holy City.
Thank you for sharing this intercession. Praise God for His word and faithfulness
Such a wonderful confirmation of what we are praying here – to release us from globalist agenda from our media, dc, financial, fuel, and food that has been altered, churches who don’t know the leading of Holy Spirit from the Father God through Jesus. We continue to pray for Israel. Amen.
Thankyou from Colorado
We are broken hearted stabbed by the vexing and we still hope our military will succumb to the prayers of our Yahweh Holy Spirit, in pity on the people…and be strong as a Israeli general like King David,, Pray for us.
Thank you so much for the powerful encouragement. Thank you for being faithful and keeping us updated with what the Lord is doing in Israel. We long to return and pray once again with you all there at Succat Hallel
Praise His Holy Name! This is a powerful message!
Yes, we (I) also pray over Norway that He (the Lord) will arise, and scatter His enemies (evil forces). We (I) command the protective demonic shield over key figures in the government, the judicial system, the economic and business systems, health and public welfare systems, and other important functions of the society be removed in the Mighty Name of Yeshua / Jesus.
May we (I), the people of Norway, repent, be filled with His Spirit of truth, and fulfill God’s purpose for us, individually, and as a nation.
Thank you for this email, it has really blessed me so much. I am in the UK and under yet another severe lockdown, I normally would meet with a little housegroup for fellowship and bible study, but have not had this since last March. Your emails are very important and very encouraging.
God bless you,
Thanks for the message.
It was used by GOD as a confirmation of a difficult decision, in a special way.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and and persecute you..” It is something that powerfully distinguishes the call on His believers from any other religion. This notion is so foreign to the flesh, but as I have answered this call in the past, the Lord has amazed me with His wonderful response. As I have been battling in my heart and mind over the current events in America and how to respond in a way that honors the Lord, your post and miraculous exchange with Him reminded me of this scripture and others and was such confirmation. God bless you friends and thank you for the encouragement.
Had just been reading yesterday about the hail and so found this a very remarkable timely prayer letter. Several of us are currently on a 40 day fast seeking the face of God for the nations, Israel, UK and America in particular at this time and those countries like North Korea and China that have the Pharaoh spirit bringing such severe oppression.
On January 22, while praying for Ottawa/ Gatineau in Canada, I saw a vision of Jesus riding on the cloud and after I saw another vision of Moses rod that turned into a snake and devowed the other snakes that the diviners put out. I felt to pray for forgiveness for our nation Canada for opening the door to witchcraft. And I’ve been sending a spirit of death on our land and praying that God would bring down this darkness over our cities and nation.
I am in UK but have worked in Israel and would often visit Succat Hallel and for prayer times and other times listen to Rick speaking. Today I looked out the window and it was hail which is quite an unusual occurrence here. In fact I texted all three of my daughters to tell them. A little later I went on the computer and read Rick Ridings message about the hail and it seemed so amazing that I had just seen hail here, hundreds of miles away. it seemed to me that God was confirming His word, even to me in UK. The Lord is definitely speaking in these days.
Joshua 10:11. The Lord had led me to this story in the Bible. Confirmation. Also lady in comments talking about the rod turning into snake and destroying other snakes. And about God coming to help us personally. Also confirmed word many angels out taking care of enemies. Praise God for His goodness and kindness!
This message was and is a blessing from Rick and Patricia.
Thank you for your faithfulness and all you do for the Body of Messiah.

Hi Patty and Rick!
I had a hail experience several years ago while teaching thirty 3-6 yr olds in CHILDRENS church.
We were learning about the plagues in Egypt. I always brought props and visuals. On this hot summer day in Lexington SC, we were reading about the hail. One child asked me- “miss Sandy what is hail?” With that- the skies opened up outside and hail fell. I said “That’s hail! Thank You Lord!!!” I told the children
“God heard Alex’s question about hail, so He sent us some!”
We went outside when it stopped and the children could hold it and see it firsthand.
We all praised Him exuberantly!!!
When the parents came to pick the children up, the children couldn’t stop talking about how God sent us hail!
My husband announced… “ Next week class will be meeting at Lake Murray. We’re learning about the parting of the Red Sea!”
I hope that gave you a chuckle♥️
My husband and I with a group of intercessors had just finished reading this report when suddenly lightning and thunder began to strike, followed by good size hail which is very unusual here in Dallas, Texas. The Lord continues to confirm what you were directed to declare in Jerusalem!
From Enugu, Nigeria, I got your link through my Christian brother Charles Swanson in the U.S. I was fascinated with your prayer reports over nations. The quick responses from God by hail storms and angelic winds, in confirmation of His words. My nation Nigeria is in dire need of such prayers for timely intervention of God. Pls put Nigeria on your list. The Lord bless you for the great job you are doing for His kingdom. More Grace to you in Jesus Name! Amen.
Both I and my wife support Israel as a prophetic insurance of Gods living word. I support a couple of Christian Israel groups. We also support God channels. My wife has been supportive of a Christian friend in Israel who moved there from the UK. My wife supports freedom from care.Also Joseph store house. We support Shake the Nations and Christ for all Nations we both have had Isaiah 54 over us. We are in our 70s both being born in the generation in
in which Israel was restored as a nation in 1948. We got married last year 21.02 20 .I could go on.
thank you Rick for your prayer insights regarding the occult shield of protection and the Pharaoh spirit. i have been praying for America and Australia for many months and have began to pray in this manner over these nations.
Praise you Lord and thank you for giving Rick and Pattie such definitely signs that they could share with all the nations. This is so comforting in this tough times. We all must never forget that God is still in control and Yeshua sits at his right hand. “In his way and in his time all things will work out. Praise God Janet
I’m working from home today overjoyed for the rain God has been giving us the past few days. Praying Eze 34:29 to break this drought. All the sudden I look out the window and it’s HAILING. I just read your article yesterday. This is Central CA. I’ve never seen it hail here once. I’ve been back in this area since 2009. Yahoo. Go God. I stood on the word when reading your article. Praise Yaweh. So encouraging.
Correction… It’s Eze 34:26 I’ve been praying over CA drought
Thank you very much for Rick and Patricia for letting us know about God’s “amens”. We are strengthened and encouraged to focus on Him and His ability to intervene and heal our lands we humble ourselves and seek His face!! Halleluyah!!
Praise God for what He is doing in these days and that he confirms His word through wondrous deeds.
Dear Rick & Patti – please contact me as I’ve been trying to reach you personally to no avail regarding another Pray for the City project in the Benelux. Please write me:
Who knows what God will do?!
May His Kingdom come and His will be done.
Blessings, Belinda (van de Loo) Kuhn

Yes, our precious Heavenly Father is at work speaking to His children through weather patterns. Pastor Hank Kuhnemann of Lord of Hosts Church in Omaha, Nebraska has been prophesying about the Lord speaking through weather, especially the winds. On January 24, 2021, he gave a prophetic word to keep our eyes on the shores of the cities of the eastern United States, even around Washington DC. He said snow shall fall. Pay attention to the winds! Where snow falls, God is dealing with injustice. Snow will mark a cleansing! God has heard the cries of His children! He said, I have not forsaken you or this nation! Stand and you will see the salvation of your God! We release the hosts of heaven. Go hosts! Those on My side shall see My goodness. On January 31, February 1 and February 2, 2021 there was a major snowstorm on the East Coast of the U.S. covering Washington DC up through the eastern section of the United States! Our God is an awesome God!!!!!
