Morning Prayer Summary for Thursday, July 9, 2020

Annie led group in worship…
Pastor Ray…

One of my favorite things is when we come together and lift Him up. We do it differently every day. Sometimes there’s something that I’ll read first, but my favorite is we lift Him up and get our thoughts in line and forget about the email’s that we’ve already received.

Thank You, Lord, for Your presence. You continually show up and bring forth new days. Hallelujah! Thank You, Lord.

We can never thank Him enough. Thanking Him brings more joy. How can that be? We’re connecting to Him even more. We start looking more clearly toward heaven.

Yesterday I dug out my Kenneth E. Hagin book, “Plans, Purposes, and Pursuits.” I want to do an advertisement—buy every Kenneth Hagin book you can get. They’re all good. But this book is so good. We’ve gone over it over the years but at the bottom on the cover, it says, “What are you going to say when you stand before the Lord Jesus Christ and He asks you, ‘Did you follow My plans for your life… or your own?’” Silence just hit the chapel. I looked up a couple things. Last night the prayer leaders met together, and I read one of the Psalms that he got by the Holy Spirit about tomorrow. I’ll read that in a little bit. I’ve done it before. But it’s good.

The prayer group leaders hadn’t met together for over 3 ½ months, so we went around the room asking how it’s been and what are you praying about lately and what is happening. For so many of those weeks, we couldn’t meet. We all have different callings in prayer. We all have something different that is usually on our hearts. And that’s what makes up a good prayer group, or groups, because so many different topics are covered because everybody has a different slant. That’s how Pastor Lynne started the prayer ministry here, way back over 30 years ago. It started with just a few people that were praying with her and then she said, “Whatever you have on your heart, that’s what you need to pray about. You’re going to have your own prayer group.” Even though we have different things on our hearts to pray about… and some people are drawn to Israel… or finances. Whatever. You can go down the whole list. The one thing that we did all have in common as we were talking last night was to keep our eyes off the things, we see every day in the natural as much as we can. I know we can’t walk around with blindfolds on, but we need to keep the Word bigger than what we see in the natural. Keep focusing back onto the Word. One of the men said, “If we keep focusing on what we see on TV or the media, we’ll begin to pray out of fear.” So then we move out of being led by the Spirit in our prayers and we’re being led by what we see in the natural. We have to keep our focus on what the Word says. We need to be aware of what’s happening in the world, but we don’t need to know every last-minute update.

I’m going to read from this book. It’s about His plan or your plan. That’s big for us as spirit-filled prayer people, that we yield to Him. First of all, when Annie started worshiping, I felt to go down 1st Timothy 2.

1 “First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men, 2 For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way. 3 For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior. 4 Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth.”

We only get divine truth from Him. Verse 8: “I desire therefore that in every place men should pray, without anger or quarreling or resentment or doubt [in their minds], lifting up holy hands.”

On the right page, I wrote a couple notes from John Osteen. He said, “If you want what the people in the Bible received from Jesus, then do what they did. Step out on the Word. Will you act as though God told you the truth?” Okay! I believe it. So we step out on it. Amen? That’s what they had. They were with Jesus. Yes, they had a lot of questions and a lot of things they didn’t understand. But they pressed on. And that’s what we’re doing. That’s our whole deal… continuing to move forward in Him, contending.


Father, we lift up our President Trump, Vice President Pence, all those in positions of authority in Washington DC or wherever they might be, here in this month of July. We apply the blood over all of them. We pray for wisdom, understanding and great revelation, that they might see more clearly what You’ve been showing them. We pray those who are speaking to our President will speak the right words at the right time and assist him in following Your great plan for America. One nation under God. Indivisible. We pray for a continual unity in our country, that we would begin to move in Your ways, and follow Your plan for America. Thank You, Lord, for the words of the prophets in these days have spoken over America. We line up with that. We’re in agreement and we’re thankful for them. We pray over all the states, all the governors, all the cities, all the mayors. Some we pray for a paradigm shift. Suddenly they’ll see things in a different way or different light. We pray for those laborers that are out going everywhere in every state that they might reach those in higher positions, those in positions of authority… in politics and the church. We pray over the body of Christ, all over the earth. We pray for every person, every man, woman, and child that have stepped into your great plan, given their lives to You. Thank You, Lord, that You loved us so much You send Your Son to the cross at Calvary for each one of us. So we know it was finished. We thank you for the stripes, Jesus, that You took, for Your faithfulness to go all the way to the cross and do what Your Father told you to do. Thank You for the blood shed and the power of it now that’s it’s working in the days we’re in. (tongues) We pray our eyes are continually opened wide to see the things You’re showing us, the plans You continually speak to us. Individually and corporately. You’ve given each of us a different plan. But the plans all connect together, and we are to be compacted together. So we pray in Jesus’ name for a coming together of the body of Christ. Unity in the body. Rivers, different streams coming together in one huge, one accord river. (tongues) Wherever the enemy… Devil, we speak to you and say, “Desist in your maneuvers against the Church, and against our United States.” We come against your works and how you’re using man to carry out your plans. So we rebuke those plans. We hold the blood against those evil ways. We push back with the blood. We know that we’ve overcome in the same way they overcame in the book of Revelations. They overcame through the blood and their testimony. We know, Lord, that is something we must do. Confess Your Word, testify about Your Word, continually say what You said to say. Declare what You’ve told us to declare. In one accord. That’s the way we see it. The whole body of Christ, people in every denomination and otherwise. But in one accord with the written Word of God. Thank You for fresh baptisms in the Holy Spirit. (tongues) You’re working. We see signs that You’re working. Hallelujah! We can see those signs in the natural where it says, “men working,” but in the spirit we see the signs that say, “God is working.” And it’s lit up and bright. (tongues) Cares, anxieties of any kind, doubt… you all have to go. Go! Get out! In the name of Jesus, fear… move out! Leave! Don’t come anywhere near the body of Christ. And in the world, we take authority over the spirit of fear that’s tried to hold back nation after nation. No! No fear in Jesus’ name. (tongues) great cooperation. Steady. Staying real steady with definite purpose. Not to look back and question how that was but to look ahead. And not question about the future but content for it. For the better. The greater. The increases. For Your presence to be more dominant than ever before. An awakening in these last days. Revival is breaking out everywhere in Jesus’ name. We honor You, Lord. We want more of You. We need more of You. We open our hearts for more of You. We need You. Your plans so open our eyes and hearts to receive. Today, we command some things to line the way You see it from heaven. Blessings and increases, momentum, power from heaven… pastors… we pray over the pastors. We call forth your blessings upon them and declare a great awakening in the pastors… Let Your fires burn in their hearts. (tongues) taking territory, ground for God. Aid and help from heaven…  turning things for churches… for the better… coming on up and through for greater… in the land of more than enough… blessings from heaven… encouraging one another… speaking blessings over the earth… stable, strong, equipped, empowered… all those names, all those men and women… all ministries… we pray over ministries… Your plans, Your purposes, Your pursuits in Jesus’ name… being led by the spirit to pray out things the Holy Spirit brings into your heart of hearts. In the same way, ministries or churches that they too would follow after the plan that God has called them to, in Jesus’ name. It will work out right. Increase will be there. Following God’s plans, purposes, and pursuits. Thank You, Lord.

Pastor Ray…

Now I want to go through a couple of things about plans. Chapter 4 says, “What’s Your Purpose?” It says “Even when men get My plan, Jesus said to me in that early morning visitation of 1987, often times their purposes are wrong. Some people get My plan, Jesus said, I speak to them. But in trying to carry out that plan, their purposes become wrong. So I cannot bless them because man’s purposes and man’s pursuits must be lined up with My plans and purposes for the fullness of My blessing. You can have the right plan with the wrong purpose.”

He was ministering to churches and pastors. One part of this book, he talked about Oral Roberts and the tent times. He had huge tents and there was a healing revival and people were being healed all over the place. He had huge tent. So many of the ministries during that time saw what he was doing and said, I can do that. I’m going to get my own tent. Not that they were all in the wrong plan or purpose but some were. He talked about one man that was very successful and anointed pastor, but he got that he should have a tent. His church had been doing great. He went out, got a tent, started doing tent meetings and he lost a lot of members of his own church. Because that wasn’t what God had planned for him to do. Part of the book is finding out what you have been called to do. So he said you don’t do something because someone else is doing it. Find out what God wants you to do. Why am I saying all these things, he said? Why did the Lord Jesus visit me when He did and speak to me about plans, purposes, and pursuits? It’s because He wants to move again in this day with supernatural manifestations. The move of God does not just belong to the revivals of the past. He wants to do a new thing. Now. Why not now? What about 2020? Now is the time. We’re in agreement with the Lord. We are aware of things that we’re prayed about and prophesied about Minneapolis/St. Paul. We know some negative things that took place, but we still stand strong on what the spirit of God said about these cities here, up in the northern part of the United States.

We read this last night together. But I wanted to go through it again today. This word was given for today. It’s interesting how prophesies when they were given, as we go further in time, we can read it again and it has meaning for the times we’re in now. Here about tomorrow. We talked about it last night. So many people are in fear. Go to any place and you’ll find a lot of fear. This is the word that he got by the spirit.

What About Tomorrow?

Many are worried and even depressed. Some have even almost been driven to suicide. Frustrated about tomorrow. What will tomorrow bring? Will tomorrow ever come? What about tomorrow? Will I be here? Will it bring fame or will it bring fortune? Will it bring blessing? Will it be bad? Or will it be good? Yeah, saith the Lord of Hosts, tomorrow belongs unto the saints. Tomorrow can be filled and will be filled with victory even as today when you walk by faith. Tomorrow is good, for the Father of Lights sendeth down always unto His own that which is good for God is good. Yea, His mercy endureth forever. So do not feel any anxiety about tomorrow. Trust in the Lord and leave it in His hands. Walk by faith and always shout above the turmoil. Walk by faith and shout above the turmoil, “All is right. All is bright. For we are children of the Light.” Darkness and gloom will overtake any who will yield unto Satan and walk in his way. Darkness and gloom, negativism and doubt, fear, you see dominates those who do not know what it is all about. But those who are aligned and enlightened by His Word knoweth that the trial of their faith is more precious than gold. So in the midst of the trial and in the midst of the test, they sound forth the shout of victory and rejoice. For they know that victory belongs unto the children of God. They know that there came out from heaven long ago the champion sent by the Father to those who live down here below. And in the world of darkness, He came and said, I am the light of the world. Follow Me and you will walk not in darkness. So darkness and gloom are a thing of the past, for now you are the light of the world. Yea, now you walk in the fullness of God and the glory of the Father and all that He has provided, it is thine. So shout it above all the roar of the enemy because you see, all that God has said and declared is true. It’s coming to pass.

Here is another one. “Doubt and Fear” is the title of this one.

Doubt and Fear

Doubt and fear are the two tormenting twins. Two tormenting twins of the enemy down here. Sent to harass and rob you of God’s blessings. But faith and love come from above. Faith and love, for faith worketh by love and faith working by love will give you victory in every circumstance. It will give you deliverance out of every problem. Faith and love sent from heaven above. Faith and love born of your spirit that is regenerated and born again. The love of God shed abroad in your spirit. Faith rising up out of the Word, upon which you meditate and upon which you think. So cast aside doubt and fear. Cast it out for they have no place in you as you walk down here. For He has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind. So cast out doubt and fear as you would pull off your coat and throw it to one side. And all of the heavenly blessings from above shall be at your disposal and in His great plan, you’ll live and enjoy His blessings as you walk in this time. And so you shall rejoice and be glad. For you see, this is the day, and this is the hour of your time. Annie, would play for a little bit?
