Morning Prayer Summary for Tuesday, January 12, 2021

Pastor Ray…

Yesterday, we talked about impossibilities turning into possibilities and then turning into reality. This morning I want to tack onto that with three scriptures about strength.

We take His strength. In these days, we can’t faint, we can’t give in, or quit in any area.

Scripture focus…

1) Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
2) But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
3) And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].
5) Therefore the wicked [those disobedient and living without God] shall not stand [justified] in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous [those who are upright and in right standing with God].
6) For the Lord knows and is fully acquainted with the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly [those living outside God’s will] shall perish (end in ruin and come to nought).  Psalm 1(AMPC)

Pastor Ray…

We have to watch out who we are listening to. I just heard this in my spirit, that we would get our news from the Word. This morning, we will take strength from the Word.

Years ago, our son would take a tambourine with him when we took our business on the road. He was maybe three years old and he would sing, “The Name of the Lord is a Strong Tower. The Righteous run into and they are saved.” We would be doing our business and he would be with us, doing business with his tambourine (ha, ha, ha).

Ms. Annie…

The Lord says, “Praise Him with the timbral.” Let’s all get one! Yes, we do get our news from the Word (ha, ha, ha)!

Back then there was an anointing on playing the tambourine. The churches were mostly denominational. But these little non-denominational Spirit-filled churches were springing up. They were a totally new thing and there were all kinds of people playing tambourines in those meetings. The way I remember, they would have different anointings on them which were super unique in their rhythmic patterns. It was a beautiful spontaneous thing! Praise Him with the timbral!

But there have been so many prophetic words about what we’re in now. It’s a Red Sea moment. The people of God are up against the sea and there is no way to go forward. The enemy is coming in from behind and it looks impossible.

But we stretch forth the rod of God’s Words and He brings us through.

And guess what they did when they got to the other side? It said Miriam led the women forth with the tambourines and they were dancing! And guess what? They didn’t have a choreographer! It was spontaneous worship and praise!

“He brought us through! I will sing unto the Lord for He has triumphed gloriously!”

Pastor Ray…

Back then all I knew was rock and roll. I had it going 24/7 in my apartment. I never turned it off. I could sleep with it on. But then I met Sandy and she was born again. And then I got born again and all that went out the window.

But coming in with somebody playing an accordion and a tambourine, it still was an adjustment … you know (ha, ha, ha). But it was the right adjustment. I am not making fun of it. It was unique, for sure.

Ms. Annie…

David said, “I will be yet more vile than this.” He was mocked for the way that he worshiped God. And the person who mocked him ended up having no fruit.

He was like, “It was before my God. I’m going to be viler than this! I am going to praise Him!”

So, if He wants me to make a joyful noise on the tambourine, I am going to praise Him! And I can drive down the highway and shout in my car! And I do!

We all have a new song of praise on our lips to our God every day! And we get our news from Him; we get our news from the One who lives inside of us.

And when we (tongues), He’s giving us news! And He’s giving other people across the planet, who we are potentially praying for news.

So, He spoke to me this morning and He said the same thing to you. “I get my news from Him.”

There are so many voices out there right now. And there is such a desire in times of extreme stress and trouble to know how He’s going to work it out. I want to know. How are You going to do this, Lord? But we have to be like Mary. She said, “How will this be?” and then she just said, “Be it unto me according to thy Word.”

The Lord revealed to me this morning in His loving gentle way. He said, “Get your news from Me, from My Word, and from My Holy Spirit.”

Guess what His news says, in His Word?

It’s says, “We are more than conquerors through Him wo loved us.”

It says, “All things that are impossible with man are possible with Him.”

It says, “Why are you crying to Me? Stretch forth your rod.”

So, we speak to the impossibilities in front of us. We don’t speak the latest thing we heard on Youtube.

Father, we believe what You have said. We believe Your Word. Thank You, Lord, for Your holy precious eternal unfailing Word that endures longer than the heavens and the earth. It will never pass away! Heaven and earth will pass away, but Your Words will never pass away.

We stand on Your Words, believe. And we know that Your Words never fail; they are eternal. And when we open our mouths, we speak what You say. We only say what we hear our Father say.

And You say, “It shall be well with us!”

You say, “The seed of the righteous will be delivered!”
You say, “The wicked fall in the plots and devices they have prepared for others and they are brought to an open shame.”
You say, “No weapon formed against Your people will prosper.”

So, we believe You, Father. We believe what You say. And when we don’t even know what to say, we pray in our heavenly language. We just let You say (tongues)…

We praise and thank You, Lord. You have never failed, not one time. No Word that You have spoken has ever failed! No Word that You speak is impossible of fulfillment.

We trust in You, Lord. We trust in Your Words. We trust in what You say. There will be a performance of those things You’ve spoken to us, Lord. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed. And, Lord, we believe! We believe! We believe! We believe! We believe You, Lord.

Pastor Ray…

We worship You. We magnify Your name above every situation, circumstance, over everything. We magnify You and You alone. Your Word is true.

We give You all the honor and all of the praise, thanksgiving right now in these days. Lord of all lords; King of kings… oh, we worship You! You are great. You’re good. You’ve never changed. You’re still the same. Your Word is still true! Glory, glory, glory, glory to God in the highest. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah, Lord.

Scripture focus…

2) And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you [with abundant increase of favors] and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a blessing [dispensing good to others].
3) And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed [and by you they will bless themselves].
6) Abram passed through the land to the locality of Shechem, to the oak or terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.
7) Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, I will give this land to your posterity. So Abram built an altar there to the Lord, Who had appeared to him. Genesis 12:2–3, 6–7 (AMPC)

Pastor Ray…

We declare this morning. These two will never be separated.

What has taken place, things that have happened in the past four years, our connection to Israel has never been better. And the embassy has moved to the location where it should have been in Jerusalem. So, we declare it and we’re in agreement this morning. That’ll never be taken away! That embassy will never be moved out of Jerusalem. And this United States will never be separated from that state, Israel.

We plead the blood of Jesus around Israel this morning. And we take authority in the name of Jesus against all hostility, all the plan that the enemy has had against the land of Israel. And we say, “Israel, you are blessed and you will continually be blessed! This United States will always be supporting you, the people of Israel.”

We plead the blood of Jesus around the borders, north and the east, the south and the west. Thank You for the land of Israel! We bless Israel. We stand with them.

We stand with you. We declare over you “You’re blessed!” And here in the Word, right at the beginning of our Bibles it tells us what we should do and we will be blessed too.

This church over the years, we’ve given and given and given to Israel. We’ve supported Israel. We’ve given way more than a million dollars. We’ve blessed Israel and I’ve always thought that is the one thing, the glue that holds this Living Word Christian Center together.

Yeah, of course, as we go along through the years, there’s changes and things happen and are happening. But as long as we support and hold up the nation of Israel, this church will be blessed. And we can take that corporately too. The church that stands with Israel will continually be blessed in Jesus’ name.

What we do as a nation in our support for Israel, we shall be blessed. Hallelujah.

Here are a few more foundational scriptures about the strength that we’ve been given in the Lord.

Scripture focus…

Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always. 1 Chronicles 16:11

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you: He will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6

The LORD is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation. Exodus 15:2

It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. Psalm 18:32

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 16:33

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so you can stand up under it. 1 Corinthians 10:13

But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed, and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was delivered from the lion’s mouth. 2 timothy 4:17

If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter4:11

I can do everything through Him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Ephesians 6:10

Pastor Ray…

No. No. No. We’ll not listen to that. That’s the wrong channel. That’s the Devil’s way. That is the channel of defeat, inaccuracies and lies.

So, we stayed tuned in, tuned up, stirred up, filled up to overflowing with this Word which is always true.

Thank You for never changing, Lord. Thank You that You’re still the same today as You were yesterday. Hallelujah! You are good and Your mercy endures forever.

If you’re going to lean, lean on Me. If You’re going to trust, trust in Me. If You’re going to step ahead, step ahead in Me. Hallelujah. No man can stop you! No words of the enemy can take you down! for I’ve given you My truth and it’ll turn your frown upside down! For My joy, it is your strength! Take it! Take it! Take it daily! Take it! Take it!

We take it! Hallelujah!

Ms. Annie led us singing The Name of the Lord Is a Strong Tower

Scripture focus…

5) My soul, wait only upon God and silently submit to Him; for my hope and expectation are from Him.
6) He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved.
7) With God rests my salvation and my glory; He is my Rock of unyielding strength and impenetrable hardness, and my refuge is in God!
8) Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us (a fortress and a high tower). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
9) Men of low degree [in the social scale] are emptiness (futility, a breath) and men of high degree [in the same scale] are a lie and a delusion. In the balances they go up; they are together lighter than a breath.
10) Trust not in and rely confidently not on extortion and oppression, and do not vainly hope in robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
11) God has spoken once, twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God.
12) Also to You, O Lord, belong mercy and loving-kindness, for You render to every man according to his work. Psalm 62:5-12 (AMPC)

1) O God, You are my God, earnestly will I seek You; my inner self thirsts for You, my flesh longs and is faint for You, in a dry and weary land where no water is.

3) Because Your loving-kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You.
4) So will I bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.
5) My whole being shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips
6) When I remember You upon my bed and meditate on You in the night watches.
7) For You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings will I rejoice.
8) My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.
9) But those who seek and demand my life to ruin and destroy it shall [themselves be destroyed and] go into the lower parts of the earth [into the underworld of the dead].
10) They shall be given over to the power of the sword; they shall be a prey for foxes and jackals.
11) But the king shall rejoice in God; everyone who swears by Him [that is, who binds himself by God’s authority, acknowledging His supremacy, and devoting himself to His glory and service alone; every such one] shall glory, for the mouths of those who speak lies shall be stopped. Psalm 63:1–11 (AMPC)

You crown the year with Your bounty and goodness, and the tracks of Your [chariot wheels] drip with fatness. Psalm 65:11 (AMPC)

The word fatness, that is prosperity. That lines up with what we’ve been confessing that every day is better. Every day is better. Every day is sweeter.

You crown the year with your good blessings,
and you leave abundance in your wake. Psalm 65:11 (NET)

Pastor Ray…

Prosperity in Jesus’ name—spirit, soul, and body in every way.

So, as we’ve entered into 2021, we declare these words are true and prosperity is here for me and for you. For the Church shall rise up. The Church shall be what the Church has been called on to be in Jesus’ name.

But you might say, you’ve looked here and you’ve looked there and you wonder how it will be. Don’t look there and don’t look over there but look up here where all your help comes from. Yes. Some things are shaking. Some people are shaking! But my Church shall not shake! But My Church shall stand strong, entering greater days, entering better ways, in higher plans in Me. Prosperity in every way! Oh, money is shaking toward you and toward me, the Church, prosperous in every way! Yeah!

So, steady we’ll stand! On the Book, we’ll remain! For the Word is true and the Word will work for me and for you!

Opening up avenues and doors and pathways to go through, busting down and busting away hinderances against us! But in Jesus’ name, up and over we shall move from one degree of glory to another, to another!

That’s us! That’s where we’re moving. That’s where we’ve entered into. And we’ll keep on entering and we will keep on going through and we’ll keep on busting out and busting through and moving in the power from heaven—the strength that God has given onto each one of us, the power of the Holy Spirit. It’s all in the glory.

Ms. Annie led us singing We See Your Glory All Around

Pastor Ray…

Everything, more than enough. I wrote out a list of all of the things that are in that glory and put it in my Bible. The glory is not just a room filled with a mist or just a sense of the Holy Spirit. The glory of God, there is everything in it. There’s healing, there’s wholeness, there’s restoration. It’s all in His glory.

So, we’re declaring and we’re believing and we’re speaking and we’re expecting the glory of God to be manifested all over this United States of America and all over the earth—the glory of God, nation upon nation turning because of the glory.

Thank You for it, Father, today. Thank You so much for Your Word, for the strength that You’ve given us to pursue, to contend, and to not quit, Lord. We’ll keep our smiles upward, keep looking up with that joy internally that brings strength every day!

Thank You so much for praying with us. We’re praying with you. Thank you for tuning in. You are blessed. We’re all blessed. We are overcoming because of the blood of the Lamb and we keep testifying about it in Jesus name. Amen. Hallelujah.
