Morning Prayer Summary for Thursday, July 15, 2021

Pastor Ken…

Father, we just lift you up right now and we just honor you. We thank you for your holy presence. We thank you for your beautiful ways. We thank you, Lord, that you have intentionality for us today to live and to move and have our being in you. According to your plan. And so, Holy Spirit, we just welcome you here right now. And we just pray that you would just speak to our hearts, whether we’re in person or online, that you would lift us, that you would strengthen us, that you would inspire us like never before in Jesus’ name.

We just open our hearts up to you, Lord. We’re just hungry for you today. Lord, we want more of you, more of your flow, more of the river that issues forth from your throne, more of your Spirit manifest in us and through our lips and our thoughts and our actions and all that we put our hands to on a daily basis. We just lean into you today. Lord Jesus, even during this time of prayer, especially during this time of prayer. We lean into your goodness. We lean into your grace. We lean into the refreshing that is found in times before you. Hallelujah, glory to God.

At the outset of this day, we just lift up the holy and majestic name of Jesus. At the beginning of our day, we look to you. We’re reminded as we read yesterday that those who turn their attention toward you, you show yourself strong on their behalf and you strengthen them and refresh them and renew their youth even. And so today we just draw from that and we just pray that heaven would just be manifest where we are right now, the presence of heaven, the glory of God.
Freedom, Liberty, Restoration
The peace and the wholeness and the freedom and the liberty and the restoration, and yes, even restitution or payback for what the enemy has done. Let it manifest here today. Let it manifest where each of our family members online are tuned in, let it manifest in their home, in their kitchen, on the road at the office, at the store, wherever they find themselves. We just call for your presence to grow, to increase, to not wane, but to surge in this time. Right here in our hearts, in this gathering this morning, as we gather under the beautiful name of Jesus, and we pray that you would have your way today, Lord, truly have your way.
Nation, Washington, President Biden
Lord, you pray that you would have your way in our nation. Have your way, Lord, in Washington, DC, in our state governments across this great land today. Have your way. But we’re convicted that prayer is simply contending and using our faith and our words and our are showing up at morning prayer, or whenever we pray… just doing what we do to help you get your way, to let you use us to pour yourself through us, to accomplish your goodwill, your pleasure, and even your delight. And so, Lord, we pray that you would get delight in the Church in this hour, in us in this hour, in our nation in this hour. We just lift up America today, we lift up our leaders because we’re reminded that first and foremost we’re to pray for those in authority. And so at the outset of this time, we lift up President Biden… we lift up his administration and we plead the blood of Jesus over him and all that concerns him today. His family included. And we pray that you would work in him and through him that you would convict him and convince him to lead and to administrate and to make decisions and to do what he does, Lord, for the sake of what you’re putting on his heart, that you would use him, that you would orchestrate things behind the scenes, that you would raise up new leaders around him with a godly conviction, with a holiness in their hearts, with a determination to honor and glorify the God of heaven in their politics and in their leadership and in their offices.
Leadership, Current Bills, Nation’s Capital
And so today, we pray over our leadership and we speak grace and mercy over them. And we pray that you would inject your will and your ways in the process of what is going on. Even without them knowing at times, that you would do what you want to do in the decisions, in the current bills, in the current discussions, in what’s happening and the decisions that will be made today. Lord, we just pray for heaven to rain upon our nation’s capital, to rain upon the state of Minnesota capital. Capitals across this country, Lord. Today, rain mercy, rain grace, rain upon us wisdom and assistance in the help we need in our leadership and in our government. Like never before, that you would turn the hearts of our leaders. In some cases, like a water course. Turn it in a fresh direction, turn it in the right direction, the direction that you’ve ordained, the direction that you have planned for us in this time. In the name of Jesus, (tongues)
That Which Is Broken in Our Country
And we do, Lord, we lift up that which is broken in our country… in so many ways … what’s broken economically in the overall system… among people groups… in cities… in the civil arena… in our leadership, Lord… that which is broken, that which is hurting, that which is lame and put out… we pray today for a healing for our land… a healing in our nation… that you would restore, that you would mend, that you would put back in place and put back in join what has been disjointed and disconnected and busted and outright disgusting… we pray that you would restore and heal… heal our land… heal relationships … heal our leadership… heal our economics…
News Media
Heal what is unjust right now… bring light on that which is outright a lie… that which has been twisted and perverted and taken out of context…. even in the public arena it on the news and in the media… we pray that you would shake loose all of the strongholds and all of the tactics and every arrow of the enemy meant to destroy, to kill and to create chaos. We pray that you would pull those arrows out, that you would shake loose the enemy and the demons that are hiding behind certain things… that you would cause them to flee …that you would cause them to go at once…
A Standard of the Spirit of God
but we raise up the name of Jesus and we pray for a standard of the Spirit of God to be raised up into prominence and into a place of great display in this country… in each state, in each territory, in each region … we’re calling for that which has been prophesied, that which has been promised by the very Spirit of God. We just get in the spirit this morning, and we agree with it and we remind you of it… for prayer is just simply reminding you of what you already declared and what you’ve already prepared and what you want to do. And so, Lord, as you look down today upon this assembly, we pray that you would see reflected back, or you would see reflected to you, Lord, your very will. We want what you want, Lord, we want what you want for America. We want to see the healing and the signs and the wonders… we want to see restoration. We desire that, Lord, we call for that today … that you would sweep across our land, Father, that we would not stay stuck, but that we would suddenly come unstuck and come unglued in a good way … out of religion and out of the past and out of the memory of COVID and out of whatever has caused us to stray or become distracted … suddenly, Lord, that you would shift things… that you would shift the Church … that you would shift us here at Living Word… that you would shift our nation, that you would shift the states… that you would shift our leaders, Lord, that you would shift believers… shift us from where we are to where the Spirit is calling us to be now … for surely He’s sounding the alarm. He’s giving an invitation. He’s saying, “come, come, come to me, come to where I am. This new place I prepared. You’ve not been here before. You’ve not been here up until now, but all it’s a beautiful place. It’s a broad place. It’s a glorious place. It’s a place where truly the works of the Spirit and the works of Jesus will truly and surely be seen.” And so, Father, we pray for that… that would be so that, that would become evidence today in the mighty name of Jesus.
Open Up
Open up, open up, open up… yes, open up the way. We just open up the way today with our prayers each and every one of us, wherever we’re at, we open up the way … we say “Way, be made open in Jesus’ name…”  Road, be prepared, be paved, be made straight… Crooked places, we command you to be straight and accessible now… Valleys and obstacles, be moved out of the way in the name of Jesus. We pray, Lord, that a highway, a 9435 highway would be made now straight through this nation. Spiritually speaking, I mean… not naturally, but spiritually, Lord, and interstate of God… an interstate of the spirit where there’s the coming and going of the Spirit of God, a coming and a going and a traversing of heaven of the works of God and the plan of God and the mission of God not moving now at a snail’s pace. Slow here and slow there.
Pressing Down of the Accelerator
But, Father, we pray now we’re in agreement that there would be a pressing down of the accelerator and that there would be a traversing across the land… across the realm of the spirit here and there… the Spirit of God doing and saying and transmitting and disclosing and revealing and shaking and depositing and raising dead people to life and healing bodies and restoring limbs and birthing new ministries and businesses and organizations and writing songs and inspiring the prophetic with such grace and such liberty and such clarity and such correctness like has never been seen before in Jesus’ name … oh my… Yes, Lord. We’ve got to have your presence even like it’s happening right now… your presence is filling this room …
A Fresh Filling
but oh it’s filling, it’s filling … that there would just be a continual filling, even as it says in the epistles… be continuously filled… And so we pray for a filling today, Lord, a fresh filling of our hearts and our journey, and our lives, and our families, and our households… But as well, Lord, for our churches, our states and our cities and our neighborhoods, Lord. Oh, for truly, Lord, that is the answer. That is the antidote. That is what we need, Lord. So we are hungry and we call and desire and request and even require your presence now like never before … So we just make room. We pray for room … room, room, room in the inn, so to speak …room, room, room in our hearts … room in our churches … room in our lives… room in our thoughts … room and our work daily … room for God… room for God to move … room for God’s presence to fill… filled to overflow, to overflow… that we would function and operate in an overflow, in an abundance in a more than “enoughness” …
The Mission Accomplished
Yes, for the mission, Lord. Yes, for the glory, Lord. Yes, Father, for all that must be accomplished… the mission will be accomplished… the nations will come into alignment… the harvest will be reaped…  signs will be seen… wonders will be worked … Churches will be planted. Disciples will be made. The dead will be raised … bodies will be healed once again… families will be restored … depression and old oppression and panic attacks will be flushed out… devils will flee … for the work of God will surely come to pass. It will come pass quickly. It’ll come to pass fast… the mission will be accomplished…
The Place
the place, the place… and so we lift up the place… the place, the place… what place is that, Lord, we lift that up to you… that specific place…
To Obey, Responsiveness
obey, obey… we pray, Lord, for people to obey… we pray for churches to obey now… pastors and leaders and prophets and evangelists and business owners, politicians, parents, mothers and fathers, and teachers… we pray for a responsiveness in the hearts of your people to respond, to be aware and cognizant that you’re doing a new work. It’s not going to happen tomorrow. It’s happening now. It’s occurring now. It’s transpiring and moving forth now in Jesus’ name… help us, Lord, draw our attention, cause our eyes to see … cause the dullness and the distractions to be dissolved and absorbed in a moment of time by the presence of God … that we would suddenly wake up and suddenly see and suddenly arise and suddenly be aware… that you are on the move … that something is taking place… something that’s not just some emotional urge, but something that has real, hard evidence showing forth the glory of God… so obey, obey in Jesus’ name…
Pastor Ken shared…
I jotted this down this morning. “There’s a big shift for the good in process right now. We’re about to see God come through like never before.” Take that for yourself. “There is something coming that is so unprecedented that it will preempt everything else the world is reporting. And that something is the glory of God as spoken of Habakkuk 2:14. But the time is coming when the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”

Brother Hagin prophesied this almost 40 years ago, but it is right where we’re at right now. Because when the prophets… And brother Hagin is a very reputable prophet. And when they prophesy, they prophecy from a realm where there’s no time. So, we don’t always know when things are going to come to pass because to God, a thousand years is an eyeblink. And brother Hagin prophesied this in 1983.

Kenneth E. Hagin, Prayer Seminar, April 28, 1983

“In this move, in this move, in this move that is about to come, and even you’re on the edge of it right now. It will not be altogether something new that you’ve never seen. It’ll be a combination of EVERYTHING you’ve seen put together and then … plus a little bit more. In this move of God that is just about to spring upon you, there will be a manifestation of casting out demons that you haven’t seen yet. Now some have drawn back from casting out demons. And the Spirit of God said, “I began a move along that line a few years ago and men aborted the move. They mixed some of their own thinking in on it and they tried to control it and do it according to pattern and according to the way that we THINK it ought to be done.” But you haven’t seen anything yet of what you’re going to see in dealing with demons. For demons are let loose upon the earth. They’re going about as never before because they know their time is short! And so in this multiplication, this advance of demon activity, there will be the activity of the Holy Ghost. Demons that have harassed men, demons that have held ministries in check will leave. And you have not seen yet what you will see in the area of dealing with demons, casting out demons, exercising authority over demons. And we’re about to step into it like you’d step through a door into another room.

And secondly, saith the Spirit of God, You have not seen the revival of divine healing that you’re about to see. Oh yes, you saw those that I raised up. You’ve seen men and women mightily used of My Spirit. I sent them forth as a pilot program to try to train you. But many just looked at them and lifted them up. And some of them were lifted up in pride and the anointing left them. And some became money minded and lost the anointing. But there will arise a group in this day that’s a brand-new breed. They’ll not be greedy of filthy lucre. They’ll not be wanting to attract attention unto themselves. They will “care less whether God uses me.” They’d rather God would use you.

And God will not just use ministers, He’ll use laymen. And there’ll be a revival of divine healing such as you have not seen in your lifetime, or read about, or heard about, saith the Lord! And a revival of the supernatural… not only the supernatural in casting out devils… not only the supernatural in healing the sick… not only the supernatural in speaking with other tongues, but the supernatural in the realm of the seen realm.

Men will see the glory of God. A cloud will hang over certain congregations, even the church building for days at a time. And everybody that passes by, sinner and saint alike, will say, “Well what in the world is that? I’ve never seen anything like that.” And there will be in other places, the fire of the Spirit… Oh yes, in the spirit realm some of us have seen it. In the spirit realm, we’ve been conscious of the fire of God. But the fire will actually come into manifestation. And there’ll be people, sinners as well as saints, that will see fire all over the heads of the people. There will be people driving down the street or down the highway and they’ll see fire on top of the buildings. And they’ll come and say, “What does all this mean?” But you see the Lord will use signs of His presence to bring people in the last days into the fullness of His Spirit and into full salvation.

And signs, signs! What kinds of signs? Miraculous things in the realm of the Spirit! And then they’ll be manifested in the realm of the physical. And the glory of God will fall. And the power of God will be in manifestation. And men will—and women too—will even be transported like Philip was and found in another place. And great! GREAT! GREAT! Shall be the reward thereof. For the Lord God is the same God today as He was yesterday. His power has not diminished. And His name is still the same. Today He can make the iron axe-head to float. Today He can divide the river just for two men to cross over on the other side. Today He can feed five thousand with a little boy’s lunch. He is the miracle-working God. Brag on Him! Lift Him up! Draw attention unto Him! Tell about how great He is. Get up in faith and tell what great things He’s going to do. And He’ll move and keep His Word with you! And MANY shall be astonished.

But the greatest miracle of all is that there’ll be so many fish caught in the net that the nets can’t hold them. There won’t be church houses enough to hold the people. For the purpose of it all is that you may be fishers of men. Hallelujah! Quit fishing in your bathtub. There’s not any fish in your own bathtub. Go out where the fish are and throw out the net. Not the hook—the NET! And pull it in. And bring them in. And the glory of the Lord shall shine. And the end time shall come. And you’ll stand in the place of ministry that you’ve not stood in before. And will stand in the place that’s been ordained for you from the foundation of the earth!

And if it could be told you. If we were able to tell you in human language that which will transpire in some of your lives, your mind would not be able to comprehend it. It would almost blow your mind. But you’ll see it! You’ll rejoice in it! You’ll be glad of it! It’s just out there a little ways in front of you. Be faithful, be joyous, and rejoice in the Lord always. And He’ll bring it to pass. Many shall go and tell the story and His great glory show. The power of God in manifestation shall be the gifts of the Spirit… the manifestation of His Spirit into full potential shall come the ministry gifts, the apostle and prophet, the evangelist, and pastor, and teacher too shall flow as one… ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha …one body, in one spirit shall go forth to conquer and to do His deeds. And great shall be the reward thereof. Thank Him! Glory to God.

Now let me give you a further word of wisdom and advice. Being conscious of a mighty move in your spirit, wanting and desiring to do the will of God … but DON’T try to do it yourself. Just learn to relax and to flow with the Spirit. Don’t try to figure it out in your head, “What does He want me to do?” Just learn to relax and flow with the Spirit. It’ll take care of itself. You don’t have to worry. You see, moving into that place of ministry or whatever it is, whether it’s full time ministry, or pulpit ministry, or personal ministry, or whatever your place is in the body of Christ… moving into that place is fueled by prayer, fired by the Spirit and ignited with His glory. But, you see, if there’s no fuel there, there’s nothing to ignite. You see it’s like the furnace. There’s a pilot light there that fires the thing. And then when the whole thing has become ignited, then the heat flows out. Ha, ha, ha… Can you see what He’s saying? Fueled by prayer, fired by the Spirit, ignited with His glory. Hallelujah! You see, if there’s no fuel there, there’s nothing to fire. If there’s no fuel, there’s nothing to fire. Fueled by prayer. Hallelujah!

Pastor Ken continued…

That’s our mandate. Amen. Each and every morning to make available fuel… prayer, right? For something for the Spirit of God to ignite, to burn. Hallelujah. Thank you, Father. So Father, we just thank you now for this word given by the prophet. Although many years ago, we know it’s for us now… that the glory has come and is filling the earth and filling our hearts and filling our lives right now in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah, glory to God.

Just honor Him today. Just lift up your hearts, lift up your hands, do whatever you need to do to worship Him, to acknowledge Him, to give Him all the acclaim. All the worship today. His presence is here. His power is here. He’s moving and flowing. He’s taking us somewhere. Hallelujah.

Father, we yield ourselves to you. Oh Lord. Move through us today. Move through our hearts and our lives today. Clean out all that’s in the way, clear out all the obstacles in the past that clings to us and those weights and even sin that clings to us… clear it out… do a work of sanctifying and setting apart and bulldozing on the inside of us that we will be prepared for more and then more, and then more … hallelujah … for the same glory that’s arising and filling the earth that filling the Church and filling your people. Lord, that glory, that power is intense. It’s white hot heat from heaven and it’ll cause the devils to flee, but it will also cause us to step into a place where we live in union with you. Where we come apart from the world… where we come apart from sin and mediocrity… and all that is not of you … all that is wood and hay and undesirable in our lives. We pray that you would burn that out of us, Lord, that there would be a cleansing and a sanctifying and a whole new set apartness in the church of the Lord Jesus Christ …in the house of God, in our hearts today, Lord, we call out for that. We ask for that… that we would be ready… that we would be prepared for a turning up of the heat… a turning up of the glory of God, where it’s coming, it’s coming, it’s flowing. It’s here. Oh, thank you, Father… meet that heart cry … open up, open up those gates … swing wide the door… for those who are hurting and broken and feel like they’re laying beside the road, not even in the game of life… we pray that your Spirit would minister life … pouring in oil and wine and healing… even for the effects of COVID and the effects of the past … the effects of broken relationships, the effects of trauma, the effects of loss and tragedy… we pray that you would go out and visit your people. Lord, that the Spirit of God would travel those highways we prayed about earlier … and show up at the doorsteps and in the driveways and at the breakfast table and at the office of people interrupting them in this hour, interrupting their meetings and stopping them in what they’re doing day to day and causing them to step back and just be aware that God is here … aware that His hand is on me … aware that His presence isn’t folding around us. And He’s healing us and He’s restoring us and He’s changing us in His glory. We’re becoming more and more and more like Jesus … reflecting Jesus…  the very Son of God Himself because He’s in us and He’s through us.

Hallelujah. Glory to God… Oh, we just bask in your presence, Lord. Oh, we love you, Lord. We welcome. You lo have your way here. Lord have your way. And our churches, Lord have your way in our nation. We want you, Lord. We need you, Lord.

Group worships the Lord…
Pastor Ken has a word…

Maybe this’ll help someone in your prayer place, in your calling, in your life, in your emotional state… day to day perhaps to come up higher and experience a higher quality of life that God intends for you. But I sense in my heart, the Lord is reminding us that to not be hung up on our past, or maybe something you did this morning or didn’t do. Because God is not hung up on our past. He solved our past so to speak. I was just was reminded of that just now. And even the other day, I felt like I was failing at something and the Lord… I just kind of just felt the impression of the inside. The Lord said, “Don’t worry about that. Not a big deal. Just keep moving forward.” I’m not saying we should take sin lightly. I’m just saying, put it under the blood and move on. Amen. Use your thoughts to magnify and glorify Him because your past does not equal your future. It has nothing to do with it. I said it before, but God has already factored in failure into our lives. And guess what? He uses it and it all turns out well… gloriously.

I remember the first time I encountered this side of God when I was 19 years old, fresh out of high school, going to the university of Minnesota. And my grandpa invited me to home prayer meeting in St. Paul. And I didn’t know these people except my grandpa. And this big man who was a minister and traveled and ministered… he called me up and said, “I saw you in the spirit” and he had some words for me. He grabbed my hand and he began to speak to me. And one of the things among many he spoke to me was… well, when I got called up in from of these people, I stood there. I wasn’t doing so well in life at that time. I was struggling. It wasn’t a life of sin necessarily, but I just felt like I was failing, having a hard time in different ways. When he called me up, I’m like, okay, here we go. God’s going to make an example of me before all these people. I was nervous. I literally was 19 year old kid. But you know, as the Spirit of God began to speak through that man … who didn’t know me at all. He began to very clearly articulate some things that were exactly for me. But what I did not hear … the Lord did not say anything about my failings or my missteps or what I wasn’t doing right. All the Lord had to say was how much He loved me, how good He wanted it to be for me. And the beautiful and amazing plans He had for my future. And the minister gave me this huge hug that the Lord wanted to give me. Just a hug from God. While I was hung up on my past and my missteps and my misfires in my life, God wasn’t seeing any of that.

So I know this is something we probably know, but it’s a good reminder. He does not see your past. It’s under the blood. Hallelujah. He wants us to have a deeply rooted inside, righteousness consciousness, and an understanding that we are truly once and for all, in Him. In Him we live and in Him we move, and in Him we have our being… We have a possession with Jesus, and in inheritance with Him. We are totally and completely loved. Amen. Glory to God.

So just let brother Hagin’s word about just learning to relax and just flow can be applied to every area of our lives. I’m not saying we shouldn’t be diligent. But in your heart, in your journey, just be leaning into Him and know that He looks down on your life and sees only something that is lovely and beautiful.

Someone who He died for and gave His Son for who’s been cleansed and plunged in that blood of Jesus once and for all. And for all time forgiven that we might walk and talk and do the acts of God in this generation and on the earth. So I just encourage you in that this morning. Don’t get hung up on your past. Let it go. Whatever that is, let it go. Let it go. Use your mind to glorify God. The Bible says we’re to love the Lord our God with all heart, our soul and our mind.
