Morning Prayer Summary for Thursday, November 19, 2020

Annie led group in prayer…

We’ll never let Him go and He’ll never let us go. Yeah, that’s the way it should be. Don’t ever be like Peter, where all I do is brag about how much I love Him, because guess what? I can never love Him as much as He loves me. So what I need to brag about is how much He loves me. Because if I start talking about how I love Him, after a while I’m going to go, whoops, that just is not enough.

Pastor Ray…

When you were singing, I had the thought that we will never know the things that He went through for us. I mean, we know some things, obviously, but just in the middle of all of the things that He went through, especially on the way to the cross. Wow.


I love that verse in John. I’m trying to think of the chapter, but it was at the Last Supper. It said “having loved His own, who were in the world, He loved them to the end.” And then it says “when the supper was finished, He got up and He wrapped Himself with a towel. He took off His garment. Doesn’t it say that? He took off His garment and then He wrapped Himself with a towel and then washed their feet.

But right before that, it says “having loved His own, who were in the world.” We know He loves everyone whether they’re His own, whether they’re not His own. He died for all. But this was about those who were His own, who were in the world and how He loved them to the end. You know, He loved them all the way up to the very end. He never stopped loving them, even when they had betrayed Him and denied Him and ran away and hid. There was nobody there at the foot of the cross, but John and His mother and a few other women. Yet He loved His own to the very end. And I, I think about that. He loved me to the very end. He loved me to the end of all my own ways, all my own rebellious ways. He loved me to the end. He loved all of us to the very end. His love is beyond what we could ever grasp when He was suffering on His way to the cross. We’ll never know what He went through, really. I’ll never know how much it cost to see His love upon that cross. But I know that it was enough for me. That’s such a wonderful, beautiful


We love You, Lord, that You loved us all the way to the very end. You loved us when our love came to an end. Your love never came to an end. Your love never comes to an end. Hallelujah.

Pastor Ray…

Thank You, Lord. Remember the song we used to sing that went like this: “This is the day”?  That’s when we had dancers. That’s in Psalm 118. Verse 19 says “this is the gate of the Lord, the uncompromisingly righteous shall enter through it. Verse 21, I will confess, praise, give thanks to you for you have heard and answered me and you have become my salvation and deliverer. The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. Verse 23. This is from the Lord and is His doing. It’s marvelous in our eyes. Verse 24. This is the day which the Lord has brought about. We will rejoice and be glad in it.”

That’s a choice. We make that choice.

Verse 25 says, Now we beseech you, Oh Lord. Send now prosperity, O Lord. We beseech you, give to us success.

And He has. And He will continue to do it.

I just looked up a couple of scriptures about as members of the body, and this seems like an ongoing theme, but that we keep moving ahead and not let the words or the things that we see, naturally speaking, in the earth, things happening in these days. So-and-so said this blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But we need to focus more on the Word. So I have just a few scriptures.

Romans 13:11–14, Passion translation. It’s entitled, “Living in the light.”

To live like this is all the more urgent, for time is running out and you know it is a strategic hour in human history. It is time for us to wake up! For our full salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 Night’s darkness is dissolving away as a new day of destiny dawns. So we must once and for all strip away what is done in the shadows of darkness, removing it like filthy clothes. And once and for all we clothe ourselves with the radiance of light as our weapon. 13 We must live honorably, surrounded by the light of this new day, not in the darkness of drunkenness and debauchery, not in promiscuity and sensuality, not being argumentative or jealous of others. 14 Instead fully immerse yourselves into the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, and don’t waste even a moment’s thought on your former identity to awaken its selfish desires.

In verse 13, one of the footnotes says. The Aramaic can be translated: “We walk with the designer.” I like that. He designed it all. He set us up, He made a way for us. We must be encouraged.

Hebrews 12:1, As for us, we have all of these great witnesses who encircle us like clouds. So we must let go of every wound that has pierced us and the sin we so easily fall into. Then we will be able to run life’s marathon race with passion and determination, for the path has been already marked out before us.

He made the way. We each have a path to walk out.

Verse 2, We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!

3 So consider carefully how Jesus faced such intense opposition from sinners who opposed their own souls, so that you won’t become worn down and cave in under life’s pressures.

Amen? We’re not getting under that. We’ve overcome because He overcame.

Hebrews 10:24–25, And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Ephesians 6:18, Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword of the spoken Word of God. Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers.

Just keep praying the blessings. And then I want to share two little two quotes. This one is Samuel Chadwick: “Prayer turns ordinary mortals into men and women of power. It brings power. It brings fire. It brings rain. It brings life and it brings God.”

I like that quote.

And then Charles Spurgeon: “I know of no better thermometer of your spiritual temperature than this: the measure of the intensity of your prayer.”

So are our prayers heartfelt? Are we passionate? Are we moved by what we see in the natural? No. We’re moved by what He has said to us, about us, for us, and moving as we go into the future.

Hallelujah! Fr the Lord is good and His mercies are new every morning. He’s good. Thank You, Father.

Pastor Ray…

And I felt we should picture ourselves taking our heavenly seat, staying up on the wall, so to speak, looking over the earth. Take our leading by the Spirit. Father, You’ve set us on a path. You’ve given us a way to overcome. You’ve  given us that blood and the power that that brings for us as we walk through here on this earth in the natural. But in the supernatural, taking our place with You. For Your Word is true. Your Word works. You answer our prayers.

We keep turning our eyes upward, knowing that that’s where all of our help comes from. You are the way maker.

It’s the power of Your words, Your Word written out to us, but also the words that You’ve spoken through Your prophets years, years, after year, Thank You. We take joy knowing that that brings strength to us to pursue and move ahead.

Situations that have not lined up to your plan, Father, we know they must be lined up. So in Jesus’ name, we speak to some things that are out of line. They’re not lined up with You. We speak to those, those things. Some are hidden and they must be exposed and uncovered for what they’ve been trying to bring about. Father, we ask for these things to be revealed, uncovered. In some way, it just seems like it’s a mystery to us, but it’s not to You. We know that You’ve given us that blood and the name that’s above every other name. You keep working on our behalf. You’ve rearranged things out in front of us. And we know You always answer our prayers. And definitely we base what we pray on what You’ve said. So we keep turning our eyes up? We keep lifting our eyes up. Thank You, Father. Hallelujah.

Thank You, Father.

I saw someone standing up in pride. It was more than one person. It was like a group standing in pride against the plan and the purpose of God on this earth right now in these days. Could be in America. Could be in other nations too. But what I saw when we begam to declare “this is the day the Lord has made and we’ll keep on rejoicing in it.” What I saw was as we lift up and be in one accord and get ourselves in agreement with what You’ve said in Your Word, it was like a rug was pulled out from under that whole group of lies, inaccuracies, untruths, hidden things in dark places. No, no, no, no more in Jesus’ name, we break your plans, Satan. We declare this morning confusion in Jesus’ name. Stop in your maneuvers against the Church. Stop your maneuvers against the United States of America. Stop in your maneuvers against the nations around the globe. Hidden plans, be uncovered in Jesus’ name. And come to nothing. Be destroyed and stop now in Jesus’ name.

Now we come by the blood and we use that precious blood, and we lay out a covering of the precious blood. We’ll do it first for our nation, for the United States, for our leaders, for our President Trump, for Vice President Pence. And for all those that are in positions of authority, we plead the blood of Jesus over them. In Jesus’ name, we take that blood and we push back against every obstacle that would try to take our nation in an ungodly plan. In Jesus’ name, including Minnesota. We know you’re not finished with Minnesota. We still hold fast that Minnesota will move more in your ways. It will happen. We agree that it will happen. We declare it.

Some things that looked like they were finished, they’re not finished! It’s not over, in Jesus’ name. We hold fast to the high purposes of God. We know where the enemy has come in. Your Spirit comes and lifts up on high standards and blows Him away, washes Him away in the name of Jesus. Thank You for that name that’s above every other name. Every knee has to bow to the name that is above every other name. Jesus is Lord over America.

Oh yeah, we break that hold in the name of Jesus. We break it off. Be gone, in Jesus’ name.

Better and better and better getting better… moving more in Your ways, Lord… A new day. For many, it’s like starting over. New days and new opportunities in Jesus’ name… words, just the right words, spoken by the Spirit… we’re not going that way… we will not entertain it… we do not see it… we will not accept that… we accept the Word’s way, Your way… and Your perfect plans…

When we know not how to pray as we are, You said Your Spirit prays together with us. And prays through us mysteries, the hidden things of God with groanings that cannot be uttered. Oh Lord, that they would hear us speaking in tongues and proclaiming the wonderful works of God. Just as they heard in the book of Acts, Lord, we proclaim Your wonderful works. We’re proclaiming the wonderful works of God…Wonderful are Your works, Lord. God, mighty are Your ways. We overcame by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony… we overcome every lying spirit by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of his testimony… we overcome the deceitful works of darkness by the blood of the Lamb of God and by the word of our testimony… we overcome a sickness, all disease, all spirits of infirmity by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony… we overcome every Sntichrist spirit by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony. And we love not our lives unto death… we overcome all the plots and plans of the wicked one by the blood of the Lamb by the word of our testimony… worthy is the Lamb of God who was slain… that all men might be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Lord, You have granted unto the unbelievers repentance unto life repentance unto life by the blood of Jesus… we hold the blood of Jesus up over ourselves… Lord, we are strong in the power of the Lord and the power of His might… we are strong by Your Spirit, by Your blood, by Your name… let the weak say I am strong… We are strong because of You, Jesus… we draw a bloodline around the United States of America… We draw blood lines around the Church of the Lord… we draw a blood line around the leaders who are standing up and turning back the battle at the gate… the spirit of justice sits in judgment… a spirit of justice to those who sit in judgment… In this land, we call for justice in the United States of America. We call them and we declare it. And justice rules and reigns in this land… Lord, give strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate… we speak strength to those who are standing up for justice and truth and righteous.

You will be a wall of fire, Lord, around us… You will be the glory in the midst of us. You will be glorified in getting this reversal… it’s turnaround… it’s a reversal… it’s a divine reverse…
