Prayer Model – Discover & Partner with God
At an early age in 6th grade, Bob first saw a ” Vision of Building Cities that love God well in all arenas of Life. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Cities that Love God Well / God's Cities of Refuge & Habitation
In 1983, Bob had been asking the Lord what He felt and what His Hearts Desires were. God's answer came to Bob in an open vision in a stairwell.
(Deut 6 / Psalm 132: 1-3)
Bob saw cities. (Isaiah 11:1-3 / Jonah and Ninevah / Acts & Samaria in Acts 2 / Matthew 6).
Sing the Song of Wisdom in all Arenas of Life
We are to see God & love God well. We can all partner with God & rebuild our part of the city (schools, business, sport teams, etc.) according to the Isaiah 61 Mandate. The “Samuels” are to anoint the “Davids”
The Doubt Addicts in prisons (Isaiah 56) will be set free. They will receive their “2nd Roar of Courage” and the compartments of their hearts will be re-opened. The enemy wants to keep Doubt Addicts alive without the faith of God! (2 Samuel 6 & 1 Chrononicles 15)
Advance Tools for the True Identity of Marketplace People
Through the years as Bob studied the Word of God, the Lord gave Bob; “The 6 Characteristics of the City Builders”.
Those that partner and build the Cities with God, will sing the Song of Wisdom
There are “4 Values” and “Advance Tools” they will walk out, in order to rebuild Cities of Love for God.
Bob Hartley is committed to seeing these City Builders, who will sing the Song of Wisdom be equipped with these Advance Tools. With these tools, they will be able to rebuild cities according to loving God well. They will also help others discover the ‘Forgotten Faces of God’ all across the cities, in every arena of life.

The Wrong Pathways
The “Zealous Path”
Definition: The Fantasy Cry & Bravado Path
This is based on personal significance and being seen by men’s perspective. The “Zealous Path” has wanderlust/bravado (i.e. Peter not me denying you – heroic responses in times of shaking). People get infatuated with being something in times of death & destruction (see on television). The wanderlust is tremendous foolishness! It is being enamored being more committed than all others.
The “Fantasy Path”
(i.e. Independence War bazooka fantasy / Apartheid –Joburg park surreal!). Wow! This stuff is not bad – there’s just greater available!
The Righteous Pathway of the “Boaz's”
The “Boaz's”, Patriarch's, Matriarch's, & Providers see & think differently in all arenas of Life. It is not about being burdened. It is not growing up independently or self focused, but we are considerate of others. We must know the pain and perplexities it creates to the children and think in a whole different way! The fruit of shaking is that the children are confused. I saw this in Zimbabwe and other places (Israel, South Africa). (Judges 9) happens where children are forgotten.
Vision of Deeper Waters is to partner and build with God for the sake of the next generation.
There are Wrong & Right Ways to the Divine Cry in the Marketplace.
The “Duty Path”
The Definition of the “Duty Path”: The “Responsibility Cry” that creates “Duty People” in the marketplace. This is where we mostly focus on preparation and survival, everyday, reacting to survival needs. In this wrong path, the “Divine Cry” is based on “being seen” & “sacrifice”. This means nothing.
The “Motivated by your Love of God Path”
Although it is good to prepare, what is Key, is the Right kind of preparation: practically and in the heart. When we are motivated by our Love of God; our genuine & true “Divine Cry” comes forth.
1 Corinthians 13:1-22 – doesn’t matter body burned…love! New Jerusalem and Babylon based on secret information. Been around those who thought it was a trophy on the mantle piece – fasting/sacrifice.
Matthew 15:8 – The people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far away from me.
The Personal Preferential Praise Path to the Discovery to God
Definition: His Beauty alone. Created ‘escapist worship addiction’ causes you to miss out!
You just become individualistic and addicted for oneself vs. the Real Roar & Cry of God's Dreams & Love, not ours! Not being in love with being in love and when we’re most alive vs. when GOD’s most alive!
2 Samuel – King David did it wrong & rushed (Ecc. 5 / Psalm 100:3 – enter His courts / Hebrews 11:6 – consider who He is), in part, the presence of God into the city -1 Chronicles 15
1 Chronicles 15– every six steps they were to stop and sacrifice.
The Unique Discovery of God / Hartley's Executive Model
This is the “Daniel” Lifestyle – The Wise Benevolent Face of God
Proclamation of our Vision & Values in God”
To be a business that discovers reflects forgotten faces God. We proclaim the vision and values of our company and how it’s being done (Proverbs 27:19 / Habakkuk 2:2).
Exodus 33:15 – Moses (If Your presence does not go with us, do not lead us up from here).
Ezekiel 36:21 – Vindicate His holy name (“But I had concern for My holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations where they went).
Help the Joseph's heads tilt back with no walls & see God in themselves & their development
Lend a Hand and a Plan to the next generation
Pray for Apprentices to arise
Malachi 4:6 – He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.”
1 Chronicles 12:32 – men who understood the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do.
Luke 15 – Issacharian
Restoration Prayer / Partnering & Chief Building with God Methodology
Ask for Zechariah 12:10– I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.
Give thanks to God for your history and how God has shown you His Forgotten Faces
Ask God for a Healed & Expanded View of these 5 Faces of God in the Markeplace
The Forgotten Face of God as the “SHEPHERDING GOD”.
The Forgotten Face of God as the “FOR ME GOD”.
The Forgotten Face of God as the “BETTER THAN GOD”.
The Forgotten Face of God as the “JOYFUL GOD”.
The Forgotten Face of God as the “WISE GOD”.
Ask for one another and go to God to see His Eyes for each other.
We seek the God of Wisdom for one another.
Partnering with God brings forth Inheritance
ESTHER/PERSONAL INHERITANCE – Call to a ‘greater inheritance (Proverbs 17:17 / 1 Peter 4:8-10). Secure and provided for – to Wow! The deliverance of a people to carry the heart of the King and nearness to the King. Esther had her own personal, unique worship and inheritance; it is the same for us.
ABRAHAMIC INHERITANCE – Our “God” inheritance. (Genesis 15:1) that we get God! Only you, He said. We promise it, like Psalm 119:56 – we all have our own unique and special discover of God. It is our only and no one can steal it!
JEDIDIAH/NEHEMIAH INHERITANCE – Building Inheritance. Nehemiah saw a city and then prayed that God would put a plan in his heart. He went to the Garden. Will you? He said yes and seek. This is a big deal – god gives us faith for cities…become small. I have dreamt since 1992 and didn’t believe. He asked me if I wanted to tell Nineveh that it did not work, etc! So whether a City Builder or a janitor, like me do Psalm 2 – ask for the nations, cities and get on the wall.
Face of God as the Wise God in All of Life
2 Chronicles 12:32 – You lead us to be men of wisdom through Him in all of life, and in the marketplace. Lead sons and daughters in a wise and righteous path. In situations profess to be a man of wisdom through Him. James 1:5 “If any of you lacks Wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” Lead sons and daughters in a wise and righteous path.
Examples of Jesus
Jesus in John 11 – Lazarus:
Jesus in John 7 – store woman / wrote in the sand / Pray all night for disciples
Paul – 1 Corinthians 3:10 (By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds.)
Nehemiah – Nehemiah 2:12 (I set out during the night with a few men. I had not told anyone what my God had put in my heart to do for Jerusalem. There were no mounts with me except the one I was riding on).
Daniel – Daniel 6:10 (Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before).
Josephs – the Wise Plan

Matthew 6:33 – wise enough to follow the “God of Life”.
“How to do it” Onramps
Always see every detail / Thoroughly examine all options / Make decisions out of Your intelligent wisdom
Take no pleasure in the calamity, confusion and perceptivity.
Wisdom is a heart issue and we must take care for heart.
Release wisdom dreams!
Not a plan and you gave me a plan / Make yourself vulnerable and share Your dream and heart with us / You desire for Your true nature to be made know across the earth. Youth no power in wisdom.
Face of God as our Wise Shepherding God
He sees, cares, and protects us. He provides, disciplines, reconciles, restores, and redeems. In order to see the development of a New Future & New View of Life, people must have their heads tilted back with no walls.
Declare His heart and Word.
