Morning Prayer Summary for Friday, January 10, 2020

Pastor Ray…

While Rob was playing, I kept hearing “be constant… consistency with great expectation.” That just kept coming up. Be consistent with the things we know to do and the by the power of the Holy Spirit, the Father will show us the things we are to do. For the plan, His plan, is much bigger than our plans or our expectations. So then we can walk in the “more,” live in the “more,” stay in the “more.” And walk in the perfect will of God that God has for each of us. Yielding and enduring… strengthened and anointed. In Jesus’ name.

Yesterday, Sandy was listening to a minister that someone had sent a link. He had just been at Andrew Wommack and he was ministering on healing, with a different slant. He said he doesn’t have a church now but he pastored a church in another country as a missionary for about 13 years. People began to get healed of cancer when they came to the church. The word got out about it and more people came to the church. He said, “We didn’t really do anything different than anyone else would do. We preached the Word and believed the Word.” But what happened was that when the word got out that some people were healed of cancer, people with cancer began to come with “expectation.” Believing that if they could get there, they too would be healed. He said over all the years he had the church, everyone that came with cancer were healed. He attributed it to people’s expectation. They believed if they could get to that church, they would be healed.

Yesterday someone gave me a copy of this from the ministry of Mario Marillo. He came to Living Word years ago in the early 90s. We were excited because he came because he thought Minneapolis was ready for revival. So he ministered at the church for several days. When he left he said, “You’re not ready.” We were like, “We’re not ready?” It was a wake-up call.

This is from Mario and I think it was right at the beginning of the new year. It’s a summary of some things that five different ministers said that have gone home to be with the Lord—Oral Roberts, David Wilkerson, Steve Hill, Kenneth Hagin, and Smith Wigglesworth. It’s an expanded version of what I want to give this morning. This is a summary of what each man said before they exited earth.


Oral Roberts was warning us about people who go to church only for themselves, and of preachers who are nothing about reaching the world for Christ. How can we deny that this is true? We have reached the point where so many Christians are unteachable and pastors are oblivious to the Great Commission.

David Wilkerson was trying to teach us that as God’s remnant in a storm of deception, violence, and persecution, we can be safe. We can even thrive.

Steve Hill placed a great deal of emphasis on the massive amount of false teaching that would rob the church of her preparation, blind her to the right choices she should make, and leave her vulnerable so that she is destroyed along with the world. But he also provided the hope that repentance and true submission to God would provide a shelter from the storm.

Kenneth Hagin was warning us that America had a final call. I believe we are at that call right now. He saw buildings burning and cities inundated by the judgment of God. However, he also offered great hope that the people of God would do even greater things than the apostles did in the book of Acts.

Smith Wigglesworth emphasized the need for purifying, holiness, and separation in the church. He urged us to wake up, ask for the mighty power of God and then nothing would be impossible to us.

Now listen with all of your heart, with all of your might, and with zero distractions. This storm will damage every compromised carnal Christian. Jesus told us that the foolish man who built his house on the sand was someone who had heard the words of Christ but would not do them. And the house fell and great was its fall. That is the key right now. All of these warnings are for Christians.

Pastor Ray continued…

Then there are a couple points he made. One is a declaration from Smith Wigglesworth. These are things we can do to avoid the problems and stay with Him.

1.Press into God. The common thread that runs through the messages of these five prophets is a call to intimacy with God. The result of that intimacy would be a special grace and power to live through anything that is coming in these last days.

Each one of them referenced a secret place in God that was available to us and would create a force field of peace and joy and boldness that would deflect every lie, every threat, and every attack. All of these men spoke of a level of power that would be revealed to the last generation of Christians on the earth. They describe a time of great extremes where wickedness and righteousness would ripen together.

Those who choose to press into God will embody a faith that cannot be shaken by any threat or headline. They will have a presence of God continually upon their life. Not just some of the time, but all of the time. Disasters will go on around them, and regardless of how cataclysmic the events in the world become, they will be conveyed safely into the presence of God.

2.Enter the era of extravagant asking. Wigglesworth’s reference to “extravagant asking” is a key to the final revival in the history of the world. He quoted Jesus Who said, “Hitherto, you have asked nothing, ask what you will and My Father will give it to you, that your joy may be full.” All five of these prophets hold out a hope for America. They are trying to sober us up so that we can ask God to speak our nation. We do not have to have fires, riots, and God’s judgment upon America, even though they are well deserved.

We can ask and receive resources beyond anything we’ve ever seen before. We can preach with devastating conviction that can pierce hearts, and break the chains of the most heinous sins of our time. We can ask and receive signs and wonders that exceed what the apostles saw. We can watch God fill the coffers of anointed ministries beyond anything we can imagine or have ever seen before.

Finally: Truly God’s word is this: “I set before you life and death.” You can walk away from this message and continue the denial that pervades the church, but I promise you, this storm is coming. You can choose life—not just any life—but the greatest life that God has offered any generation!


Lord, we rest in You… spiritually speaking, we rest in You… we open our hearts for more of Your presence… we’re thankful that You send the Holy Spirit… we receive a rest by the Spirit of God… we ask extravagantly… bigger than we can imagine.

Let’s pray Psalm 91, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”

Thank You for Your Word and the protection of Your blood… we plead the blood and believe there’s power in the blood… we’re changed by the blood… it’s over this ministry and our pastors and leaders… no weapon or evil will befall any of them for we are protected by the blood… thank You, Father, for what You did through Your Son, Jesus… thank You for the flow of Your Spirit… we lift up the body of Christ… we believe what was planned for the body will come forth in Jesus’ name…You make a way where there was no way… we pray over other streams of ministry… pastors, ministers, leaders, those out on the field, missionaries, teachers, prophets… we hold these up and believe for Your will to come forth in their lives… we lift up those in positions of authority… we plead the blood over them… we pray especially for President Trump… we lift him up… we pray for wisdom, understanding and revelation for him… we declare he is healed and whole in every way… give him supernatural strength from heaven… we pray for all those around him… You know the ones Lord… You know their names… we pray for those that speak into his life… I heard President day last night “the best is yet to come!” hallelujah!… spiritually speaking and in the natural too… we stand in agreement with that word… the best is yet to come… we expect it… we turn up our expectation… we cover his family and those speaking into his life… thank You that he has ears to hear… he’s wise in You, Lord…he’s listening to what You’re saying… thank You for protection by the blood of Jesus… no weapon, no sickness or disease, no attack can come against him… in Jesus’ name… so much more… we pray over our military… every part… leaders… every branch… we plead the blood over them for safety… we believe that our leaders have eyes to see and know what to do… hidden things shall be revealed… thank You that You are leading and directing us into all truth… we worship You…
