Morning Prayer Summary for Tuesday, July 21, 2020

Pastor Ray…

We need to come in light, lifted and go out even higher and lifted more than we’ve come in. So, before we worship Holy Spirit, we just thank You. We welcome Your precious presence again this morning. You said in the Word, You would lead us and guide us into all the truth.

We believe we have our ears and hearts open to You this morning and we expect to do what You want us to do in Jesus name. Hallelujah!

Ms. Annie led us in singing Open Our Eyes Lord

Pastor Ray…

There’s something about bowing before the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Of course, it’s humbling ourselves before Him. In bowing before Him, we are laying it all out there on the alter.

When I first started coming to Living Word thirty some years ago, we would always sit behind this couple. You know, I came out of a couple different denominational churches and nobody ever raised their hands or said Amen! There’s a sound man that works here that used to work at one of those churches where I went. He’d be in the sound booth and if someone said “Amen!” everyone would turn around looking to see (laughing).  Anyway, when we would sing a certain song about bowing down, this lady in front of us would always bow down. And I know it was real. She’d just bow, humble herself before the Lord. That ministered to me so much! Hallelujah.

We know that we can’t make things happen even though we’d like to see them happen. We know You are the way maker and we are the ones that declare and pray out what Your Word has said about us.

Whatever happens here in the chapel in Minneapolis, has to be the Holy Spirit because it’s not me or it’s not us. It’s all Him. Everything is better and getting better because of Him. Everything is changing because of Him not because we’re so great.

But we have overcome by the blood and we do testify about it. Hallelujah! That’s the blood! That’s not us! But it is what we believe. It is what we by faith declare. Amen. Thank you, Lord.

When I got here this morning, I was looking for a Psalm 91 that we could say together, something personal. Then I found this declaration. It was in my drawer with it. I don’t remember when I heard it but I had written it out. It was maybe a few months ago.

We always pray for more and we will always pray for more. We don’t put any interpretation on the word “more.” If we have more of Him, we have more of everything.

When I read it, I felt to just get out a fresh piece of paper and write down some things. It’s about more. It’s about going further. It’s about doing even greater things and it’s about increase.

Someone that we read a while ago, maybe it was Smith Wigglesworth, said that the Church should begin to ask extravagantly. And this is what I added onto what the Lord had said here. I’ll read the first part.

You’ll have more if you’ll take what I’ve already given, through Me! So, if you take what’s already been given, You’ll go further than ever before. If you’ll believe what’s yours in Me, you’ll do greater things than what you’ve done before because I’ve done it already for you!

So you’ll increase beyond what you’ve known ever before if you’ll believe it’s yours – because it’s already been given unto you.

We just have to watch how we speak, what we believe. We have to speak in faith knowing it’s done. Step ahead.

Just step ahead and take all that’s yours. Take all of thesethey are yours because of who I’ve created you to be! I love you, saith the Lord!

Okay here is the second part.

I created you to be what I want you to be, created you to have more, more of Me, more of My ways, more of My plans to move ahead further than ever, to do miracles, greater, signs, wonders and to keep up the press. Increase is up to me and you.

Together, together in it, right? We can’t just sit back and think it’s all going to happen, great! Increase is up to me and you.

You believe you’ll receive. You declare and you’ll see things around you move more and more toward Me. More, further, greater and increase are all part of Me!

Okay, Lord, thank You! We receive it all. We receive You, so therefore we know we receive it all.

Maybe it’s time in these days to reach out by faith further than we’ve reached out before! If we don’t feel it, just keep on speaking it. If sometimes we haven’t seen it yet, just keep on seeing it by faith! Calling those things that just haven’t been seen yet, as though we see them and were in them and they’re ours.

It is time! These are the days of seeing things in God’s perfect will and ways.

Oh, thank you! We look up. We look up.

Scripture Focus

1. The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, the world and they who dwell in it.
2. For He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the currents and the rivers.
3. Who shall go up into the mountain of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place?
4. He who has clean hands and a pure heart…

Cleansed by the blood. Made righteous by the blood. Soft hearts. Hallelujah. Precious spirit. I know, I just sense it right this second. You are working internally on our hearts. Melt us, mold us, and make us who You want us to be. Hallelujah!

4. He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted himself up to falsehood or to what is false, nor sworn deceitfully.
5. He shall receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6. This is the generation [description] of those who seek Him [who inquire of and for Him and of necessity require Him], who seek Your face, [O God of] Jacob. Selah [pause, and think of that]!

Sometimes that’s just the best, to just pause and think, have a Selah on what He says.

7. Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be lifted up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in.

Lift up what we’re looking at. Look up, instead of looking around too much. Look up, look ahead instead of looking back so much. Look further than we’ve looked before. Begin to see those things by the Spirit, who shows us all the way through the, said are to come, He said, He would.

The King of Glory. Thank You. Thank You, today.

7. Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be lifted up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in.

We are in a battle in these days. Yes? All throughout the centuries, there have been all kinds of battles. Today, we are fighting in our own battle, in the army of God! And we’ve already won because the victory was done! Finished at the Cross at Calvary. Oh, thank You, Lord! Thank You, Father!

8. Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
9. Lift up your heads, O you gates; yes, lift them up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in.
10. Who is [He then] this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah [pause, and think of that]! Psalm 24 (AMPC)

We’re not alone. Jesus left. He’s seated in heavenly places high above and He made a place for us to sit there, too! But He sent forth the precious Holy Spirit that we might be so saturated and filled to overflowing, that we will absolutely do and say and go places that we would never have gone before, say things we wouldn’t have said and see things…

For the spirit of seeing and knowing must be received by faith. And then by faith, we can see things the world does not see so that we can say them or pray them in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah. Thank You, Father. Thank You for it, Lord.

Ms. Jeani…

We are in the days where asking for more is crucial. What we need is an extravagant move of God and He’s counting on us to co-labor in our asking for the extravagant. Even as I’m sitting here, He’s talking to me about never betraying my heart because out of the heart flow the issues of life. He’s talking to me about a situation right now, where He wants me to ask for more. The facts don’t really make sense to ask for more. It’s kind of like what’s happening on the earth. Do the facts make sense to ask for more?

Let’s ask for more! It’s what we’re here for.

Pastor Ray…

It would be so stupid to be in a prayer meeting and not ask for more. Wouldn’t it?

It would be like, just thank You, Lord, that I can just stay in my old ways, you know, barely or maybe not even making it.

Ms. Jeani…

Do you know what too? It’s insulting to the Father. It insults Him.

I just thank God right now that He continually gives us a revelation of His extravagance, His extravagant love, a revelation of the cross. He not only sent His Son to die but when Jesus died, He finished it. It’s just one thing after another after another, after another, after another, after another. He’s an ever-increasing God and frankly, the world is counting on us to ask extravagantly.

The earth is crying out for us to ask extravagantly! We have a mandate. A responsibility to ask extravagantly and it makes our Daddy smile.

Pastor Ray…

It’s like, “Wow, their eyes are beginning to open, their hearts are beginning to yield more. They’re saying things I’ve already shown them.”

Get it? Hallelujah! Oh! Think about Heaven! Thank You, Lord.

Ms. Jeani…

So, even as we think about heaven, we have to look up.

Pastor Ray…

We do! That’s it! Why are we saying look up?!

Ms. Jeani…

And He says, How are we going to pray the kingdom of heaven coming to earth if we’re not looking up? And if we’re not looking to heaven… Heaven is extravagant, okay.

When you watch commercials about the side effects, the symptoms of certain drugs… The symptom of looking up, is the extravagant asking! So, let’s go.

Pastor Ray…

How do we ask for things that we don’t even know? We can know some things about extravagance, but we don’t know it all. When it comes to us personally, here is a key: pray in the Holy Ghost.

We’re looking up, ask, believe; let’s talk to Him. Let’s pray in the Spirit for a little bit. We’ll ask some things.

I just saw something in my spirit. I saw someone, maybe you’re tuning in. I don’t know where you are or who you are but I saw you take a pile of bills, it was papers and you just threw them down on the table. You took your Bible, closed it up, and said, “I’ll never ever be able to do what this Word says I can do!”

No, saith the Lord! Instead of closing the book, open it back up and look. For the Lord has called you up and over into greater ways and days.

I declare it to you. I prophesy over you and say you can do it because it says so in the Word! He has already finished it for you! So, take a step! Just take a step of faith in Him and don’t throw those papers down. But believe what it says in the Word for you.

Those things will come to nothing! If today you have not enough, believe to step over now! Step over the line and into “more than enough,” in Jesus’ name!

I feel like it’s someone online. I want to ask you to watch the past weekend service from Pastor Mac. It’s like a mini book of faith on breaking through. Tithing, giving, it’s all in that message of faith and I know that you’ll see things that you hadn’t seen. Just listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to you today. Don’t tune out but keep tuned in. Try it. It’ll work because the Word works. Amen! Hallelujah.

Psalm 91 Confession

I dwell in the secret place of the Most High so I abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”
Surely, He shall deliver me from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover me with His feathers, and under His wings I shall take refuge; His truth shall be my shield and His truth shall be my buckler.
I shall not be afraid,

That means fear has got to get out of here. Get out of our lives. Get out of our homes. Get out of our businesses. Get out of our churches. Get out of our families. In Jesus’ name. Thank You, Lord. Hallelujah!

I shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand; but it shall not come near me.
Only with my eyes shall I look and see the reward of the wicked.
Because I have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, my habitation, No evil shall befall me,

No evil shall befall my relatives. Just thought I’d add that!

Nor shall any plague come near my dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways.

They’re keeping us in His ways! Ministering spirits, go, work on our behalf right now and when it comes to finances and money – bring it in! Go get the money and bring it in in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah! Thank You, thank You, thank You, Father.

Some things have already begun, but they have not yet been finished. So, today, lean more over and in the realm of the Spirit and begin to see the finish line for that that you’ve been given to finish.

In other words, keep your eyes on the prize! Keep your eyes on the revelation, on the restoration, on the equipping, on the anointing, on the answers, on the steps in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah. Thank You, Father. Thank You, Lord.

They shall bear me up in their hands, lest I dash my foot against a stone.
I shall tread upon the lion, I shall tread upon the cobra, the young lion and the serpent I shall trample under foot.
Because I have set my love upon Him, therefore He will deliver me;

He knows our name, right. He knows our names! He knows who we are! He knows our plan. He gave us the plan. He’s equipped us. He’s anointed us. He’s changing us. We’re moving from one degree of glory to another. We’re not stepping down, we’re stepping up. Hallelujah. Hallelujah!

I just keep hearing this from the Lord, by the Spirit, I do not need to explain everything to you. Okay? There does not always need to be an explanation for the things that will come. Just know, I already did for you! You’ll see it when it takes place! When it manifests! And you’ll say, Oh, my! Father in Heaven! That explains it all! Hallelujah! Glory! Hallelujah! Okay, so, just, we’ll finish these last three. Thank You, Lord. Thank You, Lord. Let’s say that again.

because I set my love upon Him…

We know the Lord. We love Him! We love the Lord! We love Him.

Therefore, what’s He going to do? Deliver us! Let’s say it like this. Therefore, He (the Lord) will deliver me!
He will set me on high, because I have known His name.
I shall call upon Him, and He will answer me; He will be with me in trouble; He will deliver me and honor me.
With how, with long life He will satisfy me and He’ll show me, He’ll show me His salvation.

Pastor Ray…

Hallelujah! We command things this morning to line up according to what the Word says. We command some situations on this earth to back off, back down, calm down, and stop your maneuvers against our country in Jesus’ name!

Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Desist! Stop it! In Jesus’ name! In Jesus’ name.

We push back with the blood of Jesus this morning. We stay on the word attack, calling the things we’ve not necessarily seen it in the natural, but we call it forth and speak it forth by faith today, knowing we will see it!

If you just go on the Internet for a few minutes, you will see that there are cities in our country that are in huge turmoil: Seattle, Portland, Chicago, New York! We declare this morning “Calm down now in Jesus’ name!” By the blood of the Lamb, we hold the blood against all this anarchy in Jesus’ name. We stand fast with the blood and we speak it, declare it! You’ve got to stop, you will stop; you are stopping in Jesus’ name.

These cities are turning around! Minneapolis and St. Paul are turning around more in God’s perfect will and ways. Every state of the United States, we say, “Turn around and begin to move more in God’s right, perfect ways in Jesus’ name.”

We pray over our President! We pray over all of our leaders that they have wisdom from heaven. They can’t help but make the right decisions because it’s heaven-sent wisdom. Hallelujah!

Protect them by the blood of the Lamb. We pray safety. We pray for protection around all of these leaders and then they’ll make the right decisions that line up with Your will. Thank You, Father! Thank You, Lord.

You didn’t just make us to be just the way we always were. We don’t want to just go back to normal! We want to go ahead in Your supernatural plan! These are opportunities to step out of those old normal ways and step into more! That’s why we’re praying. More and more! Now and now! And now and now, in these days.

Days of increase! Oh, Hallelujah! Oh, Glory! Thank You, Lord.

Ms. Annie led us singing You are Great, You do Miracles so Great

Pastor Ray…

The Devil has thrown two surprise punches to the earth. One’s called a virus and the other is absolute wickedness coming against, especially, the cities in America. But God has sent the ultimate punch which is the blood of the Lamb!

The blood that was shed at Calvary! So we can say, you’re defeated, Virus! You’re defeated, Chaos! Whatever all it is, we turn the page today and we’re reminded that the blood of the Lamb and that the name of Jesus is above every other name! So, we declare victory here, there, and everywhere!

Aha! Aha! Aha! You’re defeated! Get out! Get away! The standard of God almighty is being lifted up in these days right now in Jesus’ name! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Jesus is Lord!

On that upward note, we’re finished for today!

Thank you, Holy Spirit for Your presence, for Your direction, and Your Words. Thank You for the power of unity where we can gather here. And we gather with You and you gather with us online. The power in that! So, we just thank You so much for it today.

You get all of the honor and thanksgiving for it, Father, in Jesus’ name. Everyone said, Amen! Thank you.
