Morning Prayer Summary for Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Ms. Jeani…

Have any of you ever watched America’s Got Talent? When you watch the person come forward and they look like just a person, really not much going on. And then what’s inside of them comes out. And it’s amazing and has a massive impact on all the listeners. That’s what I think about when I think about coming to prayer at the Chapel. And that’s who we are. We really are world changers. And if any of us woke up with the wrong person this morning, with fear or worry, we just right now, we are with Jesus, we are with the Holy Spirit.

And so it’s such an honor to be with you right now, with world changers, because what’s inside of you is Youtube worthy and more. The Chapel and prayer is for all of us. I mean I might be leading but that doesn’t mean that what is in you, that we don’t want to hear it. So, keep that in mind.

The following YouTube clip I Can’t Stay Here was played on the overhead screen.

As I read the scripture out of Ezekiel 37, Holy Spirit, You show us the character of our Father and how He is so completely and fully faithful toward us and those dry bones are about to rise up.

Ms. Jeani has Mariam stand up and represent the Church.

Now imagine where Mariam is standing is a valley. It’s not a flat surface. It’s a valley, a crevice. So, you have to walk down to get into it and it’s not only that, it’s full of dry bones.

Scripture focus…

(1) The hand of the Lord was upon (the Church, Mariam represents the Church), and God brought (Her) out in the Spirit of the Lord and set (Her) down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones.

Really? I didn’t think God did that. I didn’t think He brought us into the tough places again where everything looks dead. I didn’t think He did that but apparently He did.

(2) And He caused (the Church) to pass round about among them, and behold, there were very many [human bones] in the open valley or plain, and behold, they were very dry.

Okay, so here is the Church resisting unanswered prayer or seemingly unanswered prayer, resisting going to God about questions that haven’t been answered, things we’ve contended for and stood for forever, dreams He’s put in our hearts, areas we know He’s called us to be and we avoid it and we get into the mundane and the day to day and we forget who we are. Yet the Spirit of the Lord is upon the Church! And He’s calling you to those places now! He’s happy about it.

Imagine this place right now full of massively dry bones that have been laying around forever and forgotten, but God didn’t forget. He hasn’t forgotten. Because He has plans for those things, and He has plans for those things right now. So, He didn’t just bring her there, then He started to lead her around. Okay, Church, let’s look at these things. I have answers for you to re-awaken those things in your heart. Don’t forget what you asked me for! Right? Don’t forget what you’ve believed for! And I don’t know, I wonder if Ezekiel was dragging his feet.

But you cannot ignore the dry bones anymore. Why? Because they are about to come alive!

I just love how God won’t let go of the issue even when we try to ignore them. Isn’t He awesome? He’s like that friend that says “Don’t give up. Keep going. This is who you are.”

(3) And He said to (the Church), (daughter and son),

He provokes the Church with a question that He already knows the answer to. But He is provoking you. And I am not talking to people outside of the four walls right now even though I am but I am talking to you right here. I am talking to me. Youtube worthy! It’s who you are.

…can these bones live?

So, He already knows what’s in our hearts but wants us to locate what’s in our hearts so He can get in, so we’ll open the door and He can talk to us about it and He can cause those things to come to life. He is an intimate friend, a pure-hearted Daddy and He’s calling us back right now to believe those things are coming to pass. And not a long drawn out process by the way (ha, ha, ha). That’s not what’s in Ezekiel. I mean it’s all over the Bible – suddenlies.

You know just a side note, when you think about how fast information travels right now and what massive, quick access we have to things, why can’t we have that in God? It’s already done! So, we don’t need to be spiritual and act like it’s okay for things to take forever! It’s in the Bible.

Okay… The hand of the Lord was upon you, and God brought you out in the Spirit of the Lord and He set you in the midst of the valley; and it was full of broken dreams and unanswered questions. And He caused you to pass round about among them, and there were a lot of them! And there weren’t just a lot. They had been around for a long time. They were dry. And then He says you “can these bones live? Am I still God?” And I love our answer to Him.

And I answered, O Lord God, You know.

But He doesn’t give up. He doesn’t leave us there and say “Well, you are not believing.” He doesn’t do that. He says “I will help you believe! We are not leaving this place. I am going to help you believe!”

What a good Dad! I mean, think about this for a second. How many times has the Spirit of God been on us and He wants to bring us to a place of pain. That’s not a place of pain for Him. But we resist it. If we would just let Him talk to us about it, immediate restoration would come to pass. Let’s go there today! And let’s help each other. Let’s help each other!

(4) Again He said to me,

I love the “again.” So, He pressed in again. He didn’t cut off communication when we gave an answer of “we are not going to go there God.”

(4) Again He said to me, Prophesy to these bones

Don’t you love that? You know when we prophecy… you know prophecy has kind of gotten a bad name in the Church. But it says in the end that “all will prophesy.” All it is, is speaking the will and the plans and the purposes of God. That’s all it is. So let’s do it. Isn’t that what we do all the time? Okay. Let’s do it for each other.

…Prophesy to these bones and say to them, O you dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!

I mean, we could just stop right there. So, those bones are ready to hear God’s Word. They are ready! They are just waiting for you to say it.

(5) Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath and spirit to enter you, and you shall live;

So we speak right now to unanswered questions, seemingly unanswered prayer, dreams in our hearts that must come to pass. God causes breath and spirit to enter you and you shall live. And I would say “Now.” Right? Okay.

(6) And I will lay sinews upon you…

Okay, I love the detail of how God does this. He does layer upon layer. He lets us know that He is taking care of every detail, like He gets us in on the process. Isn’t that awesome! If you need a plan for the next step, He gets you in on the process. If you need an idea to get something done, He gets you in on the process. If you need wisdom for a tough conversation, He gets you in on the process. He does not leave you out! He wants to be close.

(6) And I will lay sinews upon you and bring up flesh upon you and cover you with skin, and I will put breath and spirit in you, and you [dry bones] shall live;

If there are any dry bones, it’s actually really good news. And I know Holy Spirit is making that come alive in you right now. He is the One that brought you here. It was His idea. He is the author and the finisher of our faith. And He said it was already finished. I don’t know, it’s kind of a win/win. Right? Okay.

(6) And I will lay sinews upon you and bring up flesh upon you and cover you with skin, and I will put breath and spirit in you, and you [dry bones] shall live; and you shall know, understand, and realize that I am the Lord [the Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and obedient service].

With manifestation we come into an even greater experience with God and know that He is God. It’s His idea.

(7) So (the Church) prophesied (spoke the Word of God) as (she) was commanded; and as (the Church) prophesied, there was a [thundering] noise and behold, a shaking and trembling and a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone.

So, as we speak God’s Word, it comes together.

(8) And I looked and behold,

Behold I looked and I saw! Where would I be had I not believed I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Behold, she looked and saw His goodness. You behold and you see it lining up! You see things coming to pass.

And just real quick, Israel, even right now, she stands in these elections and she does not succumb to the temptation of the enemy. But she brings in the right person because God is in charge of this whole thing. And we call that forth in Jesus’ name.

So, the Church prophesies, the Church speaks the Word, and what does God do? He brings a thundering noise and a shaking and a trembling and a rattling to the bones and they come together, bone to bone.

(8) And (then we) look and there are sinews upon [the bones] and flesh that come upon them and skin covers them over, but there was no breath or spirit in them.

So, sometimes when we pray, we have to keep praying. Sometimes when we pray and sometimes when we speak God’s Word, we see things happen but it’s not quite there yet. Okay, keep moving. Right? He didn’t leave. He didn’t go anywhere.

(9) Then said He to me, Prophesy to the breath and spirit, son of man, and say to the breath and spirit, Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath and spirit, and breathe upon these slain that they may live.

Breathe upon these slain that they may live. Anywhere the enemy has come in, God is saying to speak to these things that they may live.

(10) So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath and spirit came into [the bones], and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceedingly great host. Ezekiel 37:1–10 (AMPC)

From dry bones to an exceedingly great host!

The following YouTube clip was played I Can’t Stay Here.

We separated in small groups and spoke to the dry bones in our lives to live.

This is absolutely my favorite (ha, ha, ha). I absolutely love that you guys are just coming together. Everything that is in every one of you… Okay, did you notice that when you came together to pray for each other and what was in you came out? It overflowed onto the other and the atmosphere completely changed within your heart in amongst each other. That’s what the Chapel is for and that’s what prayer is for. And you know just like the dry bones, when the Father brings us to those places, you had to kind of break through a little bit to go to someone else and get to those places. But look at the immediate effect, the immediate result that took place.

So, even now I thank God that we walk out of here today strong and courageous in the way that we are willing to humble ourselves and receive from each other, believe for each other… an experience, just the breakthrough in believing and an uplifted heart. I can’t tell you how thankful I am that you were all willing to do that. Thank you so much.

And if I am thankful, think about the Father. He loves when we just rise up! I mean literally you had to get up out of your seat. Right? So, you got up! You came together. You agreed with each other. Thank you!

I just hear Him saying “thank you” and out of the small places, you know that we do not despise. Even now I thank you that we do not despise the small beginnings, even things that would look small to us because all it takes is Your Word. We speak Your Word over it and we move forward with an uplifted heart.

We are going to play the song one last time I Can’t Stay Here.

Repent for the Kingdom of God is near. It’s upon you and it’s in you and we change our thinking today. And as we lean into You, we repent, we change our thinking, we rise up, we reach out, we receive, we believe. Thank you for coming.
