Morning Prayer Summary for Friday, March 02, 2018

Pastor Ray shared…

Have you ever heard Sister Billye talk about the home going of Oral Roberts? Erika gave me a print out of a blog that Billye has. This is what she said about the death of Oral Roberts and Billy Graham.

February 22, 2018 on the Departure of Billy Graham
Billye Brim, February 22,2018, the Parsonage

July 2007
My son, Chip, and I were flying in a private plane between ministering in meetings in California. The word of the Lord came to me clearly, strongly, and quite unexpectantly. It began, “Tell Oral Roberts…”

Before I relate the word here, let me fill in some background so you can understand how I immediately knew what the Word referred to. About ten years before, I was having a meal in Ft. Worth, Texas, with Oral and Evelyn Roberts, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, and my daughter, Shelli.

Oral Roberts suddenly made this announcement: “When I reach 87 years of age, I’m going home.”

“Oh Brother Roberts,” I exclaimed, “Please don’t go. We need you. And besides, I wanted you to be a part of our Autumn Prayer Meetings in Branson.”

“No,” he said, “I know what happens to the human body as it ages. And I’m going home at 87.”

Evelyn piped in, “Oh, Billye, he doesn’t like to travel. After he leaves, ask me and I’ll come to your meeting.”

Well, May 4, 2005, Evelyn went home before Oral did. She was 88.

He was 87. And I knew he began in earnest to pray to go home.

So in that airplane in July 2007, I knew what the Lord was referring to when He gave me that very clear word.

“Tell Oral Roberts that some men can choose the day of their departure as is *revealed through the apostle Paul. But two men who cannot are Oral Roberts and Billy Graham. The dates of their departures are in the sovereign plan of God. For at their departures, there will be a major shift in the heavenlies *Phil. 1:20

I phoned Brother Roberts and asked if we could come see him in his Newport Beach, CA home. He invited us to come for lunch. We had an amazing day. Brother Roberts prayed for Chip’s back which was giving him much trouble. Both felt the power of God flow and Chip was immediately healed.

Later, I received a six-page handwritten letter from Brother Roberts in which he wrote: “Finally, please know that I received your prophetic word that in finishing my course, that at my death SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY will happen by the Holy Spirit. My response is to continue obeying God and walking through the valley of the shadow of death (not lying down in that valley and giving up). I am at great peace. I fear no evil, for Jesus, the Good Shepherd, is with me.

Blessed be His name! With my whole heart, Oral Roberts.”

December 15, 2009

God called Oral Roberts home. He was 91 years of age.

I sat with my Bible when I heard the news and prayed as to what was “the major shift in the heavenlies.”

Billy Graham
Through the eight years since Oral’s departure, when Billy Graham was hospitalized, I heard the Lord say within me, “Not now.”

And then, the Lord’s sovereignly chosen date came.
Yesterday morning, the Lord called His humble servant, this great man of God, home. He was 99.

I copied the following from the Internet:

On his 99th birthday back in November, world famous evangelist Billy Graham released a video encouraging people to seek God with their whole lives. It turned out to be his final public prayer for the world.

“I’ve been praying that we might have a spiritual awakening,” Graham said. “I think that becomes possible only as individuals surrender their lives afresh and anew to Christ.”

Graham also shared advice about how people can truly live the Christian life.

“First, we must do everything we can to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. Live a life in which we love one another, we help one another, and we live according to His Word as Jesus lived.”

“The Holy Spirit is the one who helps us live that new lifestyle. It’s one of love, gentleness, and patience and all of these things that are the fruits of the Spirit,” he added.

Again, I sit before the Lord not really knowing what “major shift” occurred in the heavenlies, but I know that it did. I would hope that it has something to do with the spiritual awakening the great Evangelist Billy Graham was praying for, and for the harvest it surely will bring.

Oral Roberts: January 24, 1918–December 15, 2009

Billy Graham: November 7, 1918–February 21, 2018

Pastor Ray continued…

When he said the Holy Spirit is the one that helps us live that new lifestyle, it’s one of love, gentleness, patience and all these things that are the fruits of the Spirit, remember brother Kenneth Copeland’s prophecy for this year would be all of the gifts of the Spirit would be in manifestation throughout 2018. All these things are connected.

I love Billye’s perspective on things. She is definitely a “watcher.” She knows what is going on.

Prayer for America…

Father, in the name of Jesus and according to your Word, we pray for those in authority in our nation. We lift up President Donald Trump, his family, his staff, and cabinet members. Let Your Word cling to them, and let them not depart from Your plan. Strengthen them with mighty power by Your Spirit to stand against wickedness, lies, and deception. Guide President Trump’s decisions; let Your light shine upon his path and show him the path of reversal for every evil way. Continually surround him with godly men and women who impart wise counsel to him. Cause the way of the wicked to be set to confusion and come to nothing. Deliver us from the traps and snares the enemy has laid for us, and let the wicked be caught in their own devises and be brought to shame. We take authority over the plots and plans of the enemy against this nation. Let prideful and lying lips be silenced in Jesus’ name.

Slanderers will not be established in America. We pray for our congress, our supreme court, our military leaders, and our intelligence agencies. Let the wisdom that is from above reign in this nation and be constantly speaking to our leaders. We exercise the authority You have given us to tread down all the power of the enemy. We cast down and demolish imaginations and arguments that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God, and we bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. We bind spirits of strife and division, civil wars and tumults, spirits of hostility, lawlessness and blasphemy, and fires from hell that have burned in our cities.

We speak grace and peace over America. We pray and believe for the voice of truth, salvation, revival, and restoration to be proclaimed and heard across our land. Grant unto your servants everywhere that with all boldness we may speak your Word. We pray for a mighty outpouring of your Spirit with signs, wonders, and miracles. We expect the wisdom of this world that is earthly, sensual, and devilish to depart and vanish until Your mighty work in America becomes a beacon of hope for all people everywhere. We expect the voice of rejoicing to be heard in our nation for your goodness, mercy, and prosperity in Jesus’ name, Amen.


We lift up the Church all over this nation… many different rivers… covering of the blood… pastors and ministers… Mac and Lynne, we cover them with the blood… no weapon formed against them can prosper… what they set their hands to will prosper… supernatural strength over Mac and Lynne… Your joy is their strength… we push out the boundaries of our expectation… we believe for more… standard of excellence… we call in those that have not arrived but are on their way… we welcome them from every direction… come forth… get to the place that you were called to be a part of… those that left for the wrong reason, we call you back… welcome back… you’ll get back into your place… restoration… doesn’t matter how long you’re gone… come back… to your place… we call you up… plead the blood over you… whole families called back… more and more… more for our pastors… increase for pastors… we cover their every side… they will do what You’ve called them to do… no stopping… increase and momentum…

See every plot… exposed in the name of Jesus… and the blood flow… there’s a pressing into that… exposing that… Michael, Michael… that free flow right there… liberating move… yes, he is a liar… yes, exposing that… revealing that… raise them up, Lord… yes, with power and demonstration of the Holy Ghost… is a light…

Removing some things that need to be removed and replacing those with the things that were meant to be… the right way… plan… ideas… steps… positions… some to be moved out and others to be moved in… You know the ones, Lord… You know the names, Father… Suddenly in Jesus’ name…

Obey, obey, obey… take up the challenge… no detours… come into agreement with it in the name… embrace the call… embrace the plan… come out from among them… step out of there in Jesus’ name… come out of that place… you come out from there in Jesus’ name… you step into your place… we declare that you will step in now… come on in… wide open…

Today in this time and hour… it must be so… it has to be shown… it has to be uncovered… it must be revealed… opened up… may day, may day… it has to happen… it is coming now… numbers, numbers, all of those numbers…they must come in alignment… lining things up… an alignment of the steps… an alignment of the plans… alignment of the numbers… one through ten… get in alignment… get in the right position… so that sign can come forth… so that door can be gone through… it’s heaven’s mandate… every limit, be removed… we open up every avenue… we pray over every street or something… they’re like streams… they’re rivers… they’re the waterways… for a fresh flow… for a clear flow in Jesus’ name… heaven’s flow… every detail of that… it’s like a puzzle or something… every piece… part… some things need a little adjustment… some things need a huge change… but we pray over the whole picture, the whole plan… in full color… the body knows… sees, hears… we smooth that out… in those adjustments or steps… that move… still some bumps in the way … they’re hindrances that are trying to derail or move it one way… instead of the right way… opening it up…

Much joy… much joy… wide open… [lots of joy right now] … able… He’s able… to make it come to pass… He is able to fulfill every promise… every word that’s been spoken… shall be fulfilled… it’s time to dominate… dominate this earth… dominate this nation… in the name of Jesus… to overcome… by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony… it’s time to raise up our voices… open our mouths… let His power flow in Jesus’ name… for it’s His anointing that destroys that yoke of bondage… it’s that anointing that lifts the burden… it’s time to pick up, to take up, and to run… run your race… like when Elijah took up his skirt and began to run to the city… you begin to take up your garments and run to the finish… don’t look at the economy… don’t look at your economy… you look at God’s economy… His ability, capabilities… He shall provide… in abundance, more than you ever imagined… to supply your plan… and a superabundant anointing shall rest upon you… rest upon the body… so they can do exploits… every gift in manifestation… glory, hallelujah…

See those boundaries going out… they’re moving out further… that the church would occupy more territory… that the body would take more of its place and position and walk in God’s grace… and stand firm in its place… and route out and take authority over and dispense of all those situations that are not right… more territory… more land… more buildings… more properties… greater responsibilities… ha, ha, ha!…

We cast out the net… we cast out a big net… a wide net…

begin to receive it again and again…for there is more… a greater… increase… momentum… furtherance… things we have never thought about… things we didn’t even know about… for the body… thank You, Lord… not missing … there are things that have been missed in the past… but they will not be missed now in this present day… we’re co-laborers… we’re laboring together… glorious ways… glorious days… glorious ideas… shining, shining… it is alive… [singing in the spirit in Native American tones] … it is visited in the ages as… it is today… today is the day… thank You, Lord…

so grab hold of that place… we’ll take our place… we’ll grab hold of our God-given places and position of power… use the dunamis power… dynamite it shall be and blow away the enemy and his ways…

so the fire fell… and so the wind blew… and so the change and changes came… and the body was restored and made new… and the will and the purpose and the plan that God had pre-planned before, before, before—it shall come forth now because these things have opened and the door has SWUNG WIDE for the Church to expand and take its territory… in Jesus’ name… hallelujah… we thank You for it, Lord… it must be so… it is so…
