Morning Prayer Summary for Friday, December 18, 2020

Peg led group in worship…

Pastor Ray …

Thank you for the blood. Thank you for what was done on the cross at Calvary when the blood was shed for each one of us. Thank you. There’s such power in that precious blood. The power of the blood is working on our behalf. Thank you for the covering of the blood of Jesus, this morning, for protection. No weapon formed against us will prosper. We reverence you. We honor you. We magnify you.

When we plead the blood, when we declare that the blood will work, out further in our lives but in our days… I had something this morning that shocked me. I know I had used the blood. I didn’t necessarily use it when I got in my car. I had declared the blood in the morning. I got on the road that I usually get on and a car ran right through a stop sign and still didn’t see me. And I had to like hit the pedal and take a swift turn, way over toward the ditch. And he just kept on going right behind me. He just went… I was like, “thank you for the blood.” You get a picture of what could have happened. I could still be being towed away.

Anyway, the blood applied always works, but we don’t always know when we’ll need it. Thank you so much this morning for the blood. There’s protection in the blood. So, in a little bit, we will receive communion together this morning. I love it that there are so many people that tune in from all kinds of different states in the United States, but in other parts of the earth. When we say there’s no distance in the realm of the spirit, the Internet, it’s amazing! It goes everywhere. And so when we’re streaming out, it’s being streamed in. And so I love it. We can do this together in unity. And when we think about the blood and we, you know, remind ourselves what the blood did do for us and how His body was broken for us, the stripes that were taken upon His back… the blood that was shed.

First, yesterday, we focused in on healing as one of the things that can hinder a happy Christmas. If there is sickness and symptoms and pain. And today I just wanted to go through a couple of things about prosperity. So I want us to before we take the elements. We have our elements here. I want us to confess this together this morning. I’ll say it. Then you say it.


I declare that I am out of debt forever.
All my needs are met. And I have plenty more to put in store.
We have more than enough.
I have preferential treatment with others.
And I walk in the favor of God and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost.
I expect unexpected income because I’m a money magnet.
Money is moving to us.
I’m blessed to be a blessing until all the families of the earth have been blessed.
And I will say continually, “Let the Lord be magnified who takes pleasure in the prosperity of his servants.”
I am your servant, Lord. I will not deny you the pleasure you take in seeing me prosper.
In the name of Jesus, I’m the head and I’m not the tail.
I declare that I’m above only, not beneath
Your Word says that I inherit the world as part of my covenant.
I declare promotion in my life.
I declare promotion on my job.
I declare promotion in my mind. My will. My emotions. And in my spirit. Promotion is in my finances.
And divine health is in my body.
I declare increase and promotion and it shall surely come to pass.
Lord, you said that if anyone lack wisdom, let him ask of God who will give onto us freely liberally and upbraideth not.
So I declare that I have the wisdom of God exploding within me.
I have revelation knowledge flowing through me, for God will not withhold any good thing from me. He’s not going to hold it back.
Men show me great favor at every turn.
Churches will do what you’ve called them to do.
Ministers will minister the way they’ve been called on to minister.
as the redeemed of the Lord, whatever we say is so, and therefore, I declare that I have said is established upon me.
I will meditate on your Word day and night.
I observe and do all that is written in it so then my way is prosperous and I deal wisely and have good success.
Yes, I hunger and thirst for you and for your Word.
In the name of Jesus, whatever I say, I’m indebting a good matter.
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer, so I’m writing on the tablets of my heart, the words of the living God.
I am anointed.
I have virtue.
Burdens are removed. Yokes are destroyed.
I walk in the glorious favor and the light of the Gospel.
I walk by faith and not by what I see, not by what I hear and not by what I feel.
I have no fear. Where does fear have to go? Back where it came from.
Because you’ve given me a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind, I’m the redeemed of the Lord. And whatever I say is so.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord.
Because I have what I say, I declare it done. Finished. Completed. It’s mine.

Ms. Peg, let’s sing a little bit about the blood and then we’ll receive these elements this morning.

Peg led group in singing about the blood…

Pastor Ray…

Yes, the blood is our victory. Thank you for the blood. Hallelujah.

So in 1st Corinthians 11:23, “For I received from the Lord Himself that which I passed on to you [it was given to me personally], that the Lord Jesus on the night when He was treacherously delivered up and while His betrayal was in progress took bread, 24 And when He had given thanks…”

We thank you so much. Thank you for what was done for us. We bring all these things to our remembrance this morning. Especially the blood, the stripes, all that was done for us. We bring that to our remembrance. We’re so grateful. So thankful. You turn things that needed to be turned. You changed situations that need to be changed. You stop things that need to be stopped. You open doors that need to be opened. You’re working on our behalf. Because you are our way maker. Thank you for your faithfulness, that you’ve never changed, and that you’re still right now, 2020, still the same.

“He broke [it] and said, Take, eat. This is My body, which is broken for you. Do this to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance.”

Let’s go ahead and do that. We do reverence you, Lord. We are thankful. It seems like our words are inadequate to describe what was done for us?

Verse 25, “Similarly when supper was ended, He took the cup also, saying, This cup is the new covenant [ratified and established] in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink [it], to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance. 26 For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are representing and signifying and proclaiming the fact of the Lord’s death until He comes [again].”

Let’s go ahead and drink it. Thank you, Lord, for the presence of your Holy Spirit. Thank you for your goodness. At the beginning of 1st Corinthians, it says in verse eight and nine, “And he, God will establish you to the end all the way to our finish line. Keep you steadfast. Give you strength and guarantee your vindication. He will be your warrant against all accusation or indictment so that you will be guiltless. And irreproachable in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah. God is faithful, reliable, trustworthy. And therefore ever true to his promise and he can be depended on and by him, you were called into companionship and participation with his son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Peg, maybe just sing out in other tongues, please.

Peg led group in praying in the spirit…

Pastor Ray…

I wouldn’t say this is a word of the Lord, but when you started to sing in other tongues, I heard this in my spirit that we not be like the world, when we say 2020 was a year from hell. Or whatever they say. God moved by His Spirit in 2020. No pandemic could hold Him down or away. And so situations came and left. Changes, many that needed to be made, were made in the power or the presence or the faithfulness of God almighty was and is working. So let’s not get in agreement with the world’s confession. Our confession is Our God in heaven, hallowed be thy name. He’s faithful. He’s been faithful in more ways than we even have a clue about. We’re connected together as members of one body. We’re healed. We’re whole. Our needs are met. The Word is still true. He’s working and working and working. And we must keep confessing and believing.

Yes, we’re exiting out of 2020, but many good things took place in 2020. And we’ll move over into 2020 and take another step up in faith. Okay, go ahead, Barb.

Barb shared and prayed…

When we were taking communion, as soon as I split that cracker in half, I heard “The curse is broken,” And the curse is broken. We know in Galatians 3:13, it says “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law. Being made a curse for us, for it is written cursed is anyone that hangs on the tree that the blessing of Abraham would come upon the Gentiles.” That blessing. We’re not under the curse anymore. We’re under the blessing of God. And I have seen this year… We have a business. I don’t work here. I’m not on staff.  We have a business and it’s been an interesting year for people in business with the pandemic. And, I’m not going to say challenging because I believe the Word. I believe in God. And He told me a long time ago, “Don’t keep looking at your financials. You just trust Me and it’ll all work out.” I said, “okay.” So, I don’t even take a care about any of that. It was a good lesson to learn. But, we’ve seen so many businesses closed this year and businesses around us. And here we are, just carrying along and coming to the end of the year. Fourth quarter, we’re looking at everything, all the year end reports, going over with our accountant. He’s saying, “Oh, I didn’t think it would look like this for you.” And I look at my husband and I said, “Well, how could it not be that way? How could we not be blessed? How could our company not come through and be blessed because of curse is broken!”

The curse cannot touch us. We have no part in the curse. And so wherever you are in this year, whatever you’ve had to go through, just know that the curse has no right to touch you. And believe God that, that blessing is on you and in you, in your business. And that’s in your physical body too. You can’t help but be healed. There’s nothing your body can do but be healed. Because you’re not under the curse of sickness and disease. You’ve been redeemed from that curse of sickness and disease. So you need to get in that mindset that “I’m under the blessing of God.”

I’m under His blessing. My body can’t do anything but be healthy. My finances can’t be anything but full and blessed. I can’t do anything but prosper. And that’s our mindset. Not like he said, not like the world. “Oh, this has been a horrible year.” He’s going to bring us through because He’s commanded the blessing to be upon us. And we can’t escape it. All we have to do is open ourselves up to that blessing.

I read this last night and I love this. I know you’re not supposed to have a favorite scripture, but I kind of lean toward this one and it might be a strange one for you, but there’s this account in the Old Testament about a king. He was really afraid of Israel because they were such a vast people. And he knew that God was with them and they were prospering. And so he called on this so-called prophet, historians say a false prophet. He said, “I want you to go and curse Israel, and I’m going to give you a lot of money. You just go and curse Israel.” And so he goes to do that. Couldn’t do it. So he goes back and says, “I couldn’t do it.” And he said, look, let’s go over here. We’ll try again. We’ll go over to this mountain. Maybe you could do it over here. So he tries again and what happens when he tries to curse Israel, he actually speaks out a blessing. So not only could he not curse Israel, what came out of his mouth was a blessing. So God will even use your enemies to bless you. Amen? So the king says, “Try to curse them. At least don’t bless them. Stay on my side.” He couldn’t do it. And this is what the false prophet said. “God is not a man. So he does not lie. He’s not human. So he does not change his mind. Has he ever promised and not carried it through? Listen, I received a command to bless. God has blessed and I cannot reverse it.”

So God has blessed you and it cannot be reversed. There is nothing the enemy can do to remove that blessing from you. And there is nothing he can do to bring the curse to you. You are blessed and you will continue to be blessed. Amen.

Pastor Ray…

Speaking of trusting, here are a couple of different quotes. This one is from Rick Warren. “The more you believe and trust God, the more limitless your possibilities become for your family, your career, and your life.” God does speak to us and we need to develop a listening ear and recognize His voice. We need to trust Him and take action on what we hear. That’s saying, “okay yes, Lord.”

This is Joel Osteen. “Keep the right perspective. It’s all good. This boils down to trusting God.

Last night, Sandy and I watched “A White Christmas. This lady was having trouble sleeping. She said, “I don’t count sheep. I count my blessings.” I can’t even remember the melody of it right now, but it was an awesome song. I don’t count the sheep. Anyway, it was Bing Crosby.

So pray with love and trust that God always answers prayers. It’s amazing what we can do if we will trust God enough to step out of our comfort zones. God knows how to turn things around. He can turn your sorrow into joy. Just let Him in.

This morning, we just say yes to you, Lord. We say yes, without limitation to your will and to your plan for each one of us still in 2020. Thank you. I get it. We get it. It’s not over. There’s still time. Good things. Better things. Better days.

If we close out 2020 in a big way, then when we step over into 2021, we’ll be up on a better way and we’ll step up even more. I always liked that picture of when, when I’m just more praying maybe, and you know, we’re just praying about doors to open up prosperity and things working out right. That kind of thing. I always see it like we get in, we go through and we get into another level of prosperity, like a room, a beautiful room, prosperous, healthy. But then there’s another door, another door in the prosperity room. And that door is called what? More! And it’s never ending. More and more and more. Thank you for it, Lord. Hallelujah.

You’re good. Your mercies endure forever. Hallelujah. So 2020 is not finished. Let’s pray in tongues over the rest of this year. (praying in tongues)

Blessed, blessed, blessed… we’re open for more… greater and greater and greater… and receive more and more and more… we’ll keep marching… Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, all the way out of 2020… the Master’s way… the Master’s plans… we can still shake out of some old ways and still shake up into better ways and better days in 2020…

Barb prayed…

This has been a year that we’ve been streamlined by the Holy Ghost… so that we can run swiftly in the new year… God has taken that which the enemy has meant for evil and He has used it and turned it for His good… and he’s going to bring us forth with joy in Jesus’ name… As we step over into the new year, as we step over into that place, glory to God that grace and that mercy will abound to you in Jesus’ name to run the race and to finish your course with joy in Jesus’ name… those things which have held you bound, in Jesus’ name, are falling away now in the name of Jesus Christ … they are beginning to crumble… and they will not rise up again, in Jesus’ name… doors opened… doors have been opened… doors have been opened to you in Jesus’ name… those ways that have been blocked, in Jesus’ name, God is moving those obstacles out of the way for you… you prophesy to that mountain… you prophesy of that mountain and tell it to move out of your way… You prophesy to that hindrance and you tell it to move out of your way in the name of Jesus… And it shall obey you… there’s a breaking now… there’s a breaking forth and a breaking out in Jesus name… for the breaking, the breaking… that anointing that breaks… that anointing that destroys is within and upon you. Glory to God… nothing can stand in your way… nothing can hold you back… victory is yours. … declare it with your mouth. “Victory is mine. Victory is mine. Victory is mine in Jesus’ name.” Thank you, Father… by your grace… it’s by your grace… by your grace we stand… by your grace, we move… by your grace, we receive… it’s by your grace, we see… it’s by your grace, we hear… hallelujah, not because of anything good in us, but because you are good. Hallelujah. And you live inside all of us. Thank you, Jesus… for showing and displaying your goodness to us… thank you, Jesus… yes, Father, we rise up… we rise up today… we step up into that place, Father, that you have appointed for us… glory to God, to walk in in this earth… you have anointed us… to walk in your power, your authority… and we’re so, so grateful to you… we’re so grateful to you, Jesus… we love you so much… we desire to honor you… not just in this season, but in every single day of our lives to honor you to give you glory, to bring glory to your name… because you are worthy… Savior, master, King, Lord of Lords… We just honor you. We honor you. We honor you, Lord. You are faithful. You are kind. You are gracious. Oh, hallelujah. You fill us with all that you are and all that you have. Thank you, Father God… opening our eyes today, Father, to see all that you have for us… glory to God…

Pastor Ray…

All throughout beginning, whenever it was March maybe, that we started streaming live and, you know, in the beginning it was just… the prayer group was a little limited. There was me, musician, camera man, and sound person. And whoever tuned in. So what a privilege and an honor it has been. And it seems like a short year to me in a way. And then, of course, in other ways it’s not. But I want to thank you for coming this morning and for tuning in wherever you are. What an honor and a privilege to join together. Many people, you know, the numbers are just awesome. For those that have been faithful day after day after day and week after week and month after month. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate it so much.

And so we’ll be off the next two weeks as far as live prayer, but there will be prayer online. Every day, like normal, except, of course, Christmas day and New Year’s Say. So I’ll just declare over all of us the blessings of God go before us making a way where there was no way… moving us out of 2020 in a great way and moving us into an even greater way. I declare the blessings of God almighty, all of the promises that we’ve been given. We know they’re all true. And we know they all are coming to pass … prophecies … words spoken by prophets over all of the centuries years shall all manifest. We thank you that we’re healthy. We’re prosperous. We’re above and not beneath. You’re good, Lord. You’re faithful all the way for the rest of this year and all into all the way into 2021. In Jesus’ mighty name, we thank you for that blood. Your Word is directing us and showing us the truth, the ways to go. Thank you for it in Jesus name. Everybody said, “amen.” We’ll see you next year.
