Morning Prayer Summary for Thursday, July 30, 2020

Pastor Tim led group in worship…

Good morning, everybody. Thanks for being here and tuning in and joining us for morning prayer. We’re going to start by inviting the Holy Spirit, His presence. We know that we have the abiding presence of the Spirit of God on the inside of us. We’re going to invite the Holy Spirit to just come in this place. To be here with us. To move in us, to move on us, just do what He wants to do this morning.

Holy Spirit, you are welcome here… come flood this place… fill the atmosphere… Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for… to be overcome by Your presence, Lord… Holy Spirit, you are welcome here… ♪

I was reading in the Word this morning, the same Holy Spirit that raised Christ Jesus from the dead lives on the inside of us. Isn’t that good news? We are the temple of the Holy Ghost. And that very same precious person of the Holy Spirit, that same spirit that raised Christ Jesus from the dead, actually lives and dwells and abides on the inside of us. He quickens us. Quickens our minds, our thoughts, our feelings, our emotions. Quickens our bodies with healing and wholeness and wellness. Peace. That peace that passes all understanding. That mounts guard and mounts garrison over our hearts and our minds. Quickens us with the very life of God. Quickens us with the wisdom, that godly skillful wisdom that we need for each and every day. I don’t know about you but I need more wisdom, more knowledge, understanding, insight. Eyes to see, ears to hear. That the eyes of my understanding would be enlightened with His truth, so that I’m walking in His truth. I’m not subject to the lies of the enemy. But all of me is conformed to the truth of God’s Word and I’m walking in the light of that Word, making good and wise decisions. That’s what the Holy Spirit does for us. And it’s so awesome. He quickens these mortal bodies with the very life of God. I’m so thankful, so grateful for that. I’m also thankful for the manifest presence of the Spirit of God. And that’s why I just felt to start this morning by inviting Him to come in this place, this room and just move among us and touch us. Thank You, Holy Spirit. We yield ourselves to you right now. We say “Have Your way. You do what You want to do this morning.” Think through our minds. Pray through us, sing through us, speak through us. Have Your way.

Have Your way… have Your way in me today… do what You want to do… help me to be who You want me to be… not my way, but Yours

This morning, could we just lift up our hands just as a sign of surrender? We’re choosing to yield ourselves to the Spirit of God. To surrender our minds and thoughts. Our feelings. Our emotions. Our bodies. All that we are. All that we have to the Lord our God. Let’s sing this together.

Holy Spirit, you are welcome here… ♪

We’re inviting Him in this physical space, in the chapel this morning to do what He wants and to have His way. We’re also inviting Him in this temple, right? Because we’re temples of the most high God. We’re inviting Him to come. In essence, we’re saying, “Father, I know You’re here and abiding but I want more of You. I want more of Your presence, power, anointing, peace, love, all that you are and all that You have at your disposal. I want more. Just come in like a flood. Absolutely saturate me. Consume me. Do what you want to do in and through me and with me. Come Holy Spirit. That’s what we’re saying this morning. Can we sing it again.

Holy Spirit, you are welcome here… we want more of You… touch us, heal us, lift us, move among us… come and change us… transform us… from the inside out, Lord… conform us to be more like You… how we think… how we speak… how we act… and how we live that we might live for you…

Jeannie shared…

I saw America free. But then I saw the church waiting for America to be free. And we’re not waiting for America to be free. We’re not waiting for a battle to end. We’re not waiting for America to be free. America is free! Because it’s up to the Church. And that would be all of us. We don’t have to wait for America to be free. And we don’t have to wait for America to be freer than she’s ever been. America, we declare and proclaim “America, you are freer than you’ve ever been.” And we’re not waiting. She’s free now! And we’re walking out the finished work. We’re walking out the promises now. And that goes for everyone in America. America is free now. So even as we continue to press in, there is so much more that God in us expands the universe constantly. That’s in us. Holy Spirit in us, You don’t have to wait to be free. You’re free right now. So we’re walking it out right now. Right now. Right now. Right now.

Pastor Tim continued…

♪  You called us to walk in victory… right now… ♪

Pastor Ray shared…

I had this picture when Jeannie said that “right now, I’m free.” Just today, Thursday, take steps. I’m free. Friday. Take some more steps. I’m over in Friday. I’m free! I’ve over in Saturday. I’m still walking out freedom. And then I’ll get on over to the next day and maybe I’ll turn and to this way and I’ll say, “I am walking out victory.” Right now. Whatever day, whatever time, whatever hour, whatever place, wherever we are. We’re walking out freedom. We’re walking out victory. And it’s for us now. He did it then. He did it back there and it was finished and we receive it up here in 2020. Freedom. Hallelujah!

Let me read this prophecy. You know what? I had a sense that we actually sort of went back to yesterday at the end of prayer. And then we just started out right here on Thursday and we’re going in the same way. Remember how Miss Billye had said “there is only one thing that will change America and it’s an awakening to God.” So we’re taking these steps and saying “we’re free.” This has to be the church. The whole body of Christ all over the earth knowing we are absolutely free. This book almost jumped off my shelf this morning. There is something about Lester Sumrall, but it’s something about what happened to him. He was ministering in Europe, in Germany when Hitler was taking over. He would have the gestapo sitting in the building wherever he was preaching. The gestapo would show up. But at that point, they weren’t shutting the country down. So then he knew when it was time to get out so he went to England. And there he met Smith Wigglesworth and he would go to his home all the time. So I think this was maybe in 1939 or 40. There was a knock on his door. The police were there and they said, “We’re looking for Lester Sumrall.” He said, “That’s me.” He had a paper and said, “You have to use this paper to get out of England now. You’re not from here so you have to leave. You need to get out because Hitler is on the way. The concern was that he would also take over England along with all the other countries. I don’t mean to go on about that. So this was his last meeting with Smith Wigglesworth. He said he knocked on the door and I guess he had already let them know that he had to leave. He said Wigglesworth stood up when he saw him and tears began to flow down his face and he said he looked like a Boston banker or a Philadelphia lawyer, just absolutely dressed to the T. This is Lester Sumrall speaking this. “He laid his hand on me and pulled me close to him and I let my head just go in closer to him. Tears flowed from his eyes and ran down his face and dropped onto my forehead and ran down my face. As he cried, he said, ‘Oh God, let all of the faith that is in my heart be in his heart. Let the knowledge of God that resides in me also reside in him. Let all the gifts of the Spirit that function in my ministry, function in his life.’ I just stood there weeping. And he stood there praying and weeping and holding me. In his embrace, I felt the holy presence or the anointing of God as it flowed from him into me. As he broke the embrace, he said, ‘You will be blessed and faith will reside within you and you will do unusual things.’ Then he stopped a moment and he opened his eyes and said, ‘I wish to tell you something.’ And his eyes looked as Elisha’s must have when he saw the chariots of fire. And I said, ‘yes?’ Shutting his eyes…” These two paragraphs are a prophecy concerning us in these days. So listen up.

He shut his eyes and said, ‘I see the greatest revival in the history of mankind coming to planet earth. Maybe as never before. And I see the dead raised. I see every form of disease healed. I see whole hospitals emptied with no one there, even the doctors are running down the streets shouting. He told me that there would be untold numbers, uncountable multitudes that would be saved. No man will say there were so many or so many or so many, because nobody will be able to count those who come to Jesus. No disease will be able to stand before God’s people.”

Then Lester Sumrall said, “If the first outpouring of the spirit was moderate, then God’s going to give a double portion as the latter rain. We will have what the apostles had and what we have at the same time. I believe God is going to double the glory, double the anointing and double the power. This is it! Now is the time. And we’ll just declare it because this is the place. You can declare it wherever you are. This is the place. This is the time where freedom will be shouted and we too will run along with the doctors out on the streets and say, “Thank You, Lord, for victory.” Thank You, Father, for freedom. Thank You for a double portion of Your glory. Thank You for a double portion of Your power. Thank You that the anointing is operating in us, through us, around us in a double way.

In the last days, God says, “I will pour out my Spirit on every kind of people: Your sons will prophesy, also your daughters. Your old men will dream, your young men will see visions. I’ll even pour out my Spirit on the servants, men and women both. I’ll set wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below: blood and fire and billowing smoke, the sun turning black and the moon blood-red, before the Judgment Day of God, the Day tremendous and awesome. Whoever calls, ‘Help, God!’ gets help. On Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be a great rescue—just as God said.

Included in the survivors are those that God calls.” (Joel 2:28–30 Msg.)

I’m going to see a victory… the battle belongs to You, Lord… ♪

Pastor Ray…

What does victory look like? It’s the opposite of defeat. It’s the opposite of every single thing the Devil has come up with. It’s victory in every area. Wherever we set our hands, there is victory. Remember, Smith Wigglesworth spoke about the outpouring. And then Lester Sumrall said there would be a double. What the apostles had and what we have, it’ll be connected together and it will double up. Where there is the glory… I have this so strong that it only takes one supernatural touch that will change us for the rest of our lives. We’re looking for as much as we can get so we can be absolutely changed… changed into another man or another woman. But you think that Lester Sumrall when Smith Wigglesworth grabbed him and just prayed that prayer, do you think he was changed? He was changed! You could go back and follow his ministry. He was always on the cutting edge. He’d always say whatever the Holy Spirit is doing, whatever wave is coming in, I’m going to get in on the wave. I don’t care where I’ve been, what I’ve done, I’m with the Holy Spirit and I’m moving with Him.

He always said most denominations, maybe the started from a move of the Spirit but they never ever moved forward or changed. They just stayed in that place. Lord, we do not want to just stay in this place. You put it in us to contend, call, reach out, bring it to others, lay hands on the sick and see them recover. Do something for You. To serve You. Do something that would make a difference here on this earth. We want to leave this earth with a good report. We want to arrive in heaven and hear “Well done my good and faithful servant.” Leave with a good report.

Pastor Tim …

(singing in the spirit)… ♪ we want to be what You created us to be… we want to do what You’ve called and anointed us to do… we don’t want to be the same anymore… we want to be changed right here right now… today, Lord… to be more like You… in every way… ♪

Pastor Ray…

Jeannie brought it up. America is free. Now! There are things that we’ve prayed and confessed. But I want us to see it like that, America is free. And we’re taking care of all of the debris. We’re moving things out. Our words are making a way, clearing those things out, cleaning things up. America is free and walking in victory. And it’ll never be the same.

So, Lord, you know those heathen peoples… sorry. I was one. But the Lord moved. Those heathen peoples, those people that are outside the covenant with You, they’ve thronged tumultuously together. And they’ve plotted a vain and empty thing against You and Your anointed. That’s us. But You, Lord, have said the plots and the plans of the wicked shall come to nothing. We believe Your Word. That’s why we can say America is free. So we do not fear them. We have no fear. But by faith we can say we believe Your Word and we declare Your word. Your power, anointing. You, our God, are with us and we are well able to go up and take the Promised Land. Which you’ve destined for our blessing. You, Lord, have covered our heads in the day of battle and there is a battle. In faith through the Word, we have overcome. We know You don’t grant the desires of the wicked. You allow the evil of their own lips to cover them up. Our eyes are upon You. In You, we take our refuge. Our eyes are upon You, Lord.
