Morning Prayer Summary for Friday, March 26, 2021

Pastor Ray…

Good morning. It is Friday morning, and every day is a good day in Him. And so, I had this thought and I was just thinking about, you know, we’re whatever day it is, we’re going from this day. Let’s say point A. And we’re going all the way to the end of the alphabet, the finish line. And there’s so much in between. I was just thinking about getting from here and going on through whatever comes up, we have to stay focused on Him and what He’s calling us to do. And I know it’s all about our hearts and being genuinely in love with the Lord. Not just casual about it, but really focused. It doesn’t mean we don’t have fun. It doesn’t mean we’re not at peace. We are in peace if we’re following Him. I have a stack of different notebooks and I saw this. It’s something I guess it was in morning prayer. And this is something I heard in my spirit. And I actually had written it out, “getting from where we are to where we’re called to be.” So that could be, you know, wherever we are in our life span. And so this is what I heard then and I think it’s good. It’s real short. So this is what I heard Him say. “If we’re walking down the road going from A to Z, we’re walking down the road and we see defeat, that’s not Me saith the Lord.” That’s how I heard it. “That’s not Me saith the Lord. If you’re walking down the road and the pathway of life and you see sickness coming upon thee, that’s not Me saith the Lord.” I know we know this, but you know, we need to notify our noggins. “So take a step back into Me, and use the blood of Jesus liberally. The blood, the blood, the blood. I plead the blood. I use the blood, declare the blood, speak the blood, apply the blood liberally. So take a step back into Me and use the blood of Jesus liberally. And you will see what was before called defeat exit and see yourself walking in victory.” Because that’s His plan and will.

So as you step further out into the pathways of life, into different situations for families, for ministries, for jobs, for the things I’ve called you to, begin to check your vision. We don’t have to go to the eye doctor to do that. We do, do that, but we don’t need to go to him to check our spiritual vision. We go to Him. And we go into His Word. “So check your vision, not your natural vision, but spirit vision and begin to see it the way I said it would be and see Me in the activity by My Spirit, correcting, changing, rearranging, opening, closing… whatever it is that’s necessary. Whatever’s necessary at the appropriate time for 100% victory in you. That is Me, saith the Lord. Hallelujah.

Just so we got that straight, right? It’s Him. It’s victory in Him and through Him. But we have to continually check our vision and be sure that’s what we’re seeing. Hallelujah.

Thank you, Holy Spirit. You’re directing us. You’re leading us. It’s all about you. We check our hearts, our loyalty, our service to you. You are our hope and help. You are our strength today, tomorrow, and all the way through in that victory that you said is ours. Hallelujah. Hallelujah, Lord. Thank you, Father.

This goes along with it. I don’t want to read too much this morning, but these are a couple of things I saw. This is a prophecy from Kenneth Copeland, really short.

The Work Has Already Been Done
Prophecy: Kenneth Copeland
February 27, 2014
Branson Victory Campaign, Branson, MO.

“Special days. Special times have come. Ah, these may not seem as special to you as they do to Me,” saith the Lord. “See, I’ve been looking forward to this a whole lot longer than you have. I’ve been planning this a whole lot longer than you have. And I already see the end and the beginning. I am the Alpha. I am the Omega. And it is time,” said the Lord, “For you to rejoice because all of heaven is rejoicing.

“The time has come. Oh! Soon! Soon! Soon! Oh, sooner than that! Soon and very soon there’s a great change coming. Yes! Oh year. There’s a great change at hand—right now in the progress of this natural, physical world. all the times and the things that have been said and gone before have come to a climax, and there’s great changes occurring in the realm of the spirit.

“Oh yes! And it’s to be rejoiced about, and it’s to be shouted about. But, oh, let Me tell you! Oh, let Me tell you! Heaven is not just rejoicing over the deliverance of the nation of the United States of America. Heaven is not just rejoicing over the times that are at hand and the great increase in the gathering of souls all over the world. Heaven is rejoicing because the work has already been done and Jesus is coming sooner than you think!”

Pastor Ray continued…

Selah? I love it because heaven is rejoicing because all of it has already been completed for us. Yes! Thank you, Lord. I just was reading about that in the Bible this morning, how Paul had to get on the churches because they were going back on what had been taught to them about the freedom that that they had received through His grace and mercy. The deliverance that they’d received and many were looking toward a false plan or word that someone else had to get them back under the law. All mixed up. But heaven has been rejoicing because we’re free. And heaven is rejoicing because we’re in victory. And we need to keep notifying ourselves. We’re blessed because He’s blessed us. We’re healed because He’s healed us. We’re strong because His strength is in us. We’re happy because it’s already been done. The plan, the purpose… it’s already been given. And we connect ourselves to it even just right now this morning. We rejoice in you. We rejoice. Just sing a little bit about that, Ms. Peg.

Ms. Peg, why don’t you share about the miracle that happened to you on the way to work the other day.

Peg shared testimony…

It was Tuesday or Wednesday when we were coming to work and we were on the bridge on 55 ready to go to four 94. And we were in the left lane and a semi cab with a big trailer came out of nowhere and was plowing right into us. And I slammed on the brakes. I went over like this because it would have slammed into us cause his whole trailer was coming this way. We just kept like going like this. And there was a sign right here that we almost hit. He went like this and we went like this, and I know the angels of God just preserved us and saved us. Because it really felt like an assignment to destroy us. And the minute we hit the car, we plead the blood of Jesus over us. And after that, we just thanked God for sparing our lives. And, yes, it’s happened many times. But I had declared when I had my last accident when I was coming to work here about a year and a half ago, one of my coworkers had prayed over and she said, “no more accidents.” And I’ve had way too many accidents. And I just hung onto that. I was like, “no more, no more accidents.” And we say that almost every day. And so I was like, “No, this isn’t going to be an accident.” We swerved off to make room for this guy, but we are not letting the devil do that to us. So no more accidents!

Pastor Ray…

My brother-in-law called called Sandy yesterday. And he lives in Washington state. He’s just a little bit younger than Sandy. And he’s a believer. And, just in the last year, he’s been in a plane crash, a little two-seater plane. It’s his neighbor that was flying it and his neighbor built it. The motor stopped and the only thing they could do was try to land. And so they landed in a field, but the field was marshy kind of and the plane flipped over. So they’re upside down in the marsh. And the first thing… this was interesting cause it was the pilot’s plane. He built it. He reached down and turned the gas off, so that there’d be no fire. And when the EMTs and the firetruck came, they thought they were dead. But they were totally alive and he was out walking the next day. They had to extract them out of there. They were hanging upside down in the plane.

And then yesterday he called and he said, “So, you know… It’s a little bit warmer there than they are here. He got a riding lawnmower and he got that thing out and one of the tires on it was super low with air. So he used a hand pump to get it up a little. And then he took it around his driveway and he got his air compressor out. He had a tire gauge, but he couldn’t read it. It was kind of foggy. So he thought, whatever… He took that compressor and he’s down by the mower and he’s filling up the tire and the tire blew up! It blew him back onto his back on the driveway  and it practically blew his pants off. Serious! His jeans were shredded. It’s funny, but what a scene. He’s been protected.

He’s been saved twice in the last year from death. One of his neighbors said “you could be dead right now with the pressure that came out of that tire.” Anyway, so He’s the God of miracles. Just because I have a faux leather jacket on today, doesn’t mean I have a motorcycle or would want to ride one right now. Or just because I have a Bible doesn’t mean I’m a Christian. But I have to open it up and I have to believe what it says. It doesn’t mean I’m healed just because I know what the Word says. It’s because I know what the Word says and receive it. We could read about the blood and we could use the blood, but if we don’t believe it, we don’t get it. We don’t walk in it. I remember that commercial a while back, about a guy pretending he was a surgeon and someone asked, “Are you qualified to do this?” He goes, “Well, I stayed at a holiday Inn last night.” That does not qualify you!

So anyway, God is a God of miracles. So our message this morning is we’re getting from A to Z. We’re going all the way through. Going back to this scripture Jeremiah 6:16, “This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it…” So the point is the old paths that the saints of God walked down through the ages, holy paths, paths of simple childlike trust in God, paths of humility, paths of faithfulness to God. This article talks about Daniel and Hannah and how they walked that path, faithful to the things of God and how the men and women of old… This is in Matthew 11, but where they cried out to God with desperate faith and utter determination that God must answer.

That’s how we’re supposed to pray. “God, you’ve got to answer. You’ve said it in your Word and we’re not gonna let it go. We’re not going to just pass by and let it go and barely get through because you are a God of glory and you are a God of mercy and you are a faithful Father. You are working for us now and we’re not letting go until we see the full manifestation of the things that we’re praying about.”

Oh, thank you, Lord. The Bible says the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. I don’t know who wrote this, but it says, “Since the effectual fervent prayer of even one righteous person availeth much, according to God’s own Word, and “the scripture cannot be broken,” (John 10:35) then much remains undone if even one righteous person fails to pray effectually and fervently.”

Doesn’t that kind of get you? Even if just one person… be casual about it. There’s so much still the remains to be done. Wherever we’ve missed it, Father, today, we repent before heaven. I know we’re covered by the blood and I know you forgave us. And you are continually forgiving us and you will continually forgive us all the way through these steps that we are walking out. These plans that we’re carrying. Thank you for that precious holy blood of Jesus that makes us clean and new. In you we know we can do all things and we know we come before you with an absolute pure heart, the things that we say by our hearts are heartfelt prayer, effectual, fervent prayer.

I think if just here in Minneapolis, all of the things that have happened over the last year and all of the things that are happening right now. If we just take it casually as a church as part of the body and we’re in this city and it’s our city, what’s wrong with us? Let’s take it by faith and declare the blood of Jesus everywhere in Minneapolis, St. Paul. Down every street, into every building, into every business, into the courtrooms, wherever it’s needed right now into the schools. We plead the blood of Jesus over teachers, into the hospitals. We pray over doctors. We pray over nurses. We pray over PAs. We pray over all of those that are serving, working. We come by the blood, we plead the blood. We believe the best is yet to come. We believe things have begun. As we read today, they’re turning because you already turned them. You already changed them. You already made a way in heaven when Jesus went to the cross, the blood was shed, and it was finished and done.

Oh, the blood of Jesus. Go ahead, Peg.

Pastor Ray…

I remember this scene when all chaos and things were happening in Minneapolis and people were marching. One of the scenes that was shown all over the earth… I had people from France text me and say, “Are you all right?” But one of the scenes was all of the marchers, hundreds and hundreds, maybe thousands were marching down our main street in downtown Minneapolis on Hennepin Avenue and they’re going toward the river and they turned and then they went out on the 35W bridge. We have a prophecy in that whole general area, George Washington Carver, you know, he prophesied that’s the area where a revival will break out in Minneapolis St. Paul, McAllister college and that whole area.

Well, when all these people got out on the bridge, I don’t know if you remember this, but they all did this. They all knelt down and they all thought they were kneeling down for another reason. But Sandy and I watching and we were like, they don’t even know what they’re kneeling. They’re kneeling on the 35W bridge, which had already fell down once. These things are just not happenstance. Have you ever prayed for a name and it turns out that name meant something else or whatever. We just do the best we can do. But when I saw people kneeling on the 35W bridge, that’s what was brought to my remembrance. Yes, they had a purpose. I understand why they’re doing it, but they didn’t know that that’s the area where a revival will break out. So is it a surprise to us that these things have happened in the past?

But what’s going to happen in the future? Revival! A move of the Holy Ghost, changes, turns, things … better than what we even thought it would be. Oh, let’s not speak down about our cities. Let’s speak up. Let’s keep lifting them up. And, you know, they’re, changes that need to be made, of course, for sure.

But before we leave, when we were sitting there and you were singing about the blood, I was looking at these flags here. I was looking at the United States flag, Israel flag, and no matter what, no matter who is in charge, we are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. And those two flags are not coming apart in Jesus’ name. Despite whatever some politician might say now in these days. And I thought this was good. It’s from Bible Gateway. Well, Psalm 122 tells us to pray for Israel, but just pray for the peace of Jerusalem. “May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels. For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say peace be within you.” If you’ve never been to Israel, Jerusalem… to be where Jesus actually walked, to trace His footsteps and go up the steps to the temple where He went up. What a scene!

So today we just move over to Israel. Father, we lift up Israel this morning and over the leaders, the prime minister, all the people … we know what the Bible says, Lord, you made it so clear to us. If we bless Israel, we will be blessed. If the church blesses Israel, the church will be blessed and all the seeds that have been sown over all of the years here from this ministry. And I’m sure for many ministries that you’re a part of that are tuning in this morning, the church… I’m talking about local bodies, will make it through and will do what they’ve been called on to do if they will continually lift up and stay connected with Israel. Pray over Israel, pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Bless Israel. Bless the people of Israel. Hallelujah.

Let’s just pray in the spirit a little bit here. (tongues) protection, protection, protection… Oh, all around the borders, the land, we pray over the land in the name of Jesus… safety and protection for the people… nothing broken… restore in Jesus’ name… safety and protection over that land. We pray for all of the military. Father, we pray over the people in Jesus’ name… we bless your name, Jesus…

Pastor Ray…

We will not forget to pray for the peace of Jerusalem… we choose to do that and choose to bless Israel… maybe in just a small way, or just keep lifting it up… praying over the land, the people. Father, you’re worthy of all of the glory today. We do humble ourselves, just lay our plans at your feet. We want your will and your ways … we want what you’ve already done for us to come in these days. So we worship you and bow before you, humble ourselves before you this morning, stand on your Words. Believe what you said is true and walk through all the way from this day to the end of our days in Jesus’ name. Amen.

It’s good. We’re overcoming every day because He overcame and that blood and that cross is working for us. Amen. All right. We’re going from A to Z, blessed in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah. Thank you.
