Morning Prayer Summary for Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Pastor Ray…

Good to be in Minnesota. We missed all of the snow. We left and there was no snow and came back and there was no snow. But in-between… whoa!

It’s good to go and then it’s good to come back. And every morning in prayer I know it was great with all of the different people that were leading. I love that. It’s like what Pastor Mac and Lynne do here at Living Word by supplying us with a variety of guest ministers. He always says that if he was the only one that you ever got to hear, you wouldn’t have the full deal. You wouldn’t have all the different kinds of gifts in operation. I love that.

Scripture focus…

For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.] Romans 11:29 (AMPC)

Pastor Ray…

He does not look at us and go “What in the world are they doing? They are not doing what I called them to do. I am going to take that call away and give it to somebody else.”

Nope. He is faithful all the time. So, definitely He was faithful to us in France. There was warfare. Is that a surprise? For me, one of the things, the Devil tried to steal my voice and just tried to absolutely shut it down. We came in on a Thursday. I did the service at the church in Nice on Sunday and then we had a full day off before the meeting started on Tuesday night. So, then we had five meetings per day. Woah!

Everything is different and you are in a different setting and that puts a little drain physically. But what I did was right at the beginning I think I strained my voice more than what I should have. When you have an unction to pray in the Spirit and you know you are doing something for God that many times you don’t even know what you are doing or where these prayers are going. I am willing to just lay it out there. I don’t think ahead like “Well, I better do this or that.” I just go with it.

The first meeting that I was to do I could hardly speak. My voice was cracking. So, Pastor Marie motioned to me and I came over. She said “If you don’t want to do the first meeting this morning, Patsy could do the first and you could do the second one; that way your voice could take a little rest.” I said “No, can’t do that.” And I had asked people from here “Definitely pray for these meetings.” And I also asked the people in that particular meeting to pray for me. And the more I spoke or prayed, the more it left. Right in the middle of the meeting, my voice began to get better and the same way the next time. It started out a little but left. It had to leave. And there were other things that tried to come against the meetings but everything was directed by the power of the Holy Spirit, not the warfare, for we’ve overcome by the blood. But when you are out there like that, you learn more to just trust Him. And so He was faithful all the way through.

All of the meetings were recorded. They had hired a video/audio company to record the services. They were from the world; not born again. One of the camera men had to sit in the front row in order to shoot whoever was speaking. He was totally rigid sitting there because he had never seen anything like it or heard anything like it. And before the meeting, Pastor Mark, who had hired the company , was talking to the men. They were wondering “What kind of meeting is this? Do you think anyone will move around?” And he is thinking “Oh, boy” because that is exactly what will happen.

This man did not have a clue. None of them had heard anyone ever praying in other tongues; they had never seen the joy of the Lord when it was in operation. But what you might think in the natural would have a negative affect on somebody who is unsaved and never seen anything like that, we actually saw him change during those three days/five meetings per day. We saw his persona change. He began to get more involved in videoing everything that was happening. In the last meeting at the end we had everyone come to the front and laid hands on them in a prayer tunnel, fire tunnel. The fire of God and it’s a tunnel (ha, ha, ha). So, we had people get in line and some of us where on one side and some of us where on the other side. And so if someone went down in the Spirit, then the ushers would just pull them out of there. A lot of times all I could see was two legs and two feet just being dragged off (ha, ha, ha). And then they were just laying over on the side somewhere. It was a scene. And so the last person through the line was the camera man. And he had changed so much that he actually got involved. I believe he is planning to be at Easter services this weekend at the church. He was so moved by the joy. He said he had never seen that kind of joy in any meeting and he is maybe in his fifties. He had never seen anything like it. I have never seen anything like it (ha, ha, ha).

One of the young men attending, he’s been in Charis Bible College for four years in Colorado but he’s from France. He has it on his heart to come back and start a college in Nice, France. He is training up in Germany to know exactly how to do it, what to do financially, the whole scene. And so, he was the right person at the right time. He knows IT and everything about the internet and how to do things and so he had people asking him questions as the meetings where going on. Well, what’s this about? There was one time we had on stage cutouts of different nations in Europe. People came up and laid hands on the nation they had on their heart, and just begin to pray up there. Well, you know if you came in out of the world, you would be confused. “What in the world are they doing?” So, Pastor Marie did an awesome message one of the mornings on globalism and how it’s trying to work on the whole earth, how to pray against it, what we do, and what we say. And she gave that camera man a copy of one of Pastor Mac’s books. He was kind of shocked. She just said “Here, this is for you.” And he started to open it up.

We not only saw that change but we saw changes in everybody in the room. There were about 70 pastors that were there from different countries. If you have pastors that have been changed by the power of the Holy Spirit, they take that change and bring a greater influence to their churches when they go back. To me, that’s like the top of the top, the best way to bring change in different nations that have come to be a part of that meeting, all of the people of course too.

And there was one meeting that Pastor Lynne saw an angel on both sides of the stage. I was doing the meeting and the presence of God came in there so strong. I had to stop because it was so intense. So, she stood up and explained why “I can see an angel over here and another angel over there.” And then I called up Pastor Marie’s sister, Elizabeth, to lead in prayer. And her prayer took us into almost like a rededication of our lives. Many people came down front. It just kept going and going. It was a meeting where in the meeting at that time you are thanking God that you could actually be a part of it. We want the presence. We want the manifested presence. And then suddenly when there is a manifestation of the presence that is more than what you maybe sensed before… awe.

Home has to be where your heart is. You know our hearts are there. We love the people there. We love the church that is there. We just love it. We love every person in the ministry that’s in Nice, Pastor Marie’s church. They are like a second family. But this is our home and we’re so blessed because Living Word was represented well. People can look at Living Word and see what happens in a prayer ministry and see what happens when the preaching of the Word goes forth, you know, that kind of thing. And so, thank God that we were founded on prayer years and years and years ago. Amen. And so what are we still doing? Praying.

We believe a spirit of prayer came in that place, came in that theater. It was a theater. Normally there would be movies in there. But the manager of that group of theaters got born again about a year ago and Pastor Marie married him just recently. So, he’s way open to what needs to come to Nice and that’s the Holy Ghost. Amen.

I wanted to read a couple verses on faithfulness because I am thankful for the faithfulness of God. Just know that it’s not us, we just yield. We do the best we can to yield to Him and let Him do the work.

Scripture focus…

What does the Bible say about God’s faithfulness?

If we are faithless, he remains faithful-for he cannot deny himself. 2 Timothy 2:13 ESV

Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations, Deuteronomy 7:9 ESV

 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.  1 Corinthians 10:13 ESV

God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?  Numbers 23:19 ESV

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23 ESV

For the word of the LORD is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness.  Psalm 33.4 ESV

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13 ESV

Your steadfast love, 0 LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.  Psalm 36:5 ESV

0 LORD God of hosts, who is mighty as you are, 0 LORD, with your faithfulness all around you?  Psalm 89:8 ESV

His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’  Matthew 25:21 ESV

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.  Romans 8:28 ESV

Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.  1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 ESV

Pastor Ray gave a Word of the Lord…

What I hear right there, Holy Spirit is saying “Come on, come on up, enter into the call that I placed within you. Come on up, come on up, and step in and take the position over and over and over. I have called you to fulfill plans that are My place; purposes that are My purposes. Come on up, come on up, come on up. My faithfulness will take you through.

Words that you did not know you would speak, you will be speaking, sayeth the Lord, as you enter into the call that I have placed within you. Words, words, words, words, words, words will complete somethings that have already begun but words will also open the opportunities for new to begin for you in these days, in these times, in these new ways, in these new plans.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, My grace, My power, My enabling power, My equipping that’s inside you, today, today, today take it, take it, take hold, take it, step in it, step into it. Watch and pray, watch and pray, watch, watch, watch and pray. Your destiny but not just yours, the destinies of those that you come in contact with are hanging in the balance, hanging in the balance. Be careful, watch clearly, speak by faith and know that My faithfulness will continually work in and through you.”

For we have been given… I’ll say it like this, we’ve all been given the opportunities, the doors, the steps, the new ways. And it’s time now that each one of us takes the opportunity to do what He is calling us to do. It’s not the way it was. It will never be the way it was. Those old days and those old ways are over. These are the new days. Today we stand in them. We receive them that our calls, Lord, the things that You put inside of us, that they would be lifted up, those callings, those liftings, those transformations, those changes. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You Lord. Thank You for it Father.

Ms. Annie led us singing in other tongues

Pastor Ray…

I just feel like there is an adding to the calls, you know, the individual calls that each one of us have been given by the Father through the Spirit. The calls, the callings, there is something being added to it, greater revelations about the fullness of it, and a greater revelation about how to fulfill it, and a strengthening from heaven to press on, to contend for the fullness of it. No lack, no shrinking back, no doubt, no anxieties about it, no questions about it or fear but a greater dependency on the power of Holy Spirit in you and me.

Word, words, words, words, words from heaven, instructions from heaven, we receive, we receive it, we receive them. Let’s pray about it. Let’s pray in the Holy Ghost. We’ll go together. We’re going together. We are in it together. I believe. We believe. We believe it (tongues).

Aid, assistance from heaven today, today, today, a commission, coming up on the new, the greater, a furtherance for that call… Thank You, Father. Thank You, Lord.

More and more and more revelation, so staying steady, staying strong, staying right. And then the Church by the power of the Holy Spirit… Oooohhh the rushing of the wind! Oooohhh the rain from heaven! Oooohhh the glory of God!

Beyond, it’s beyond that. It’s calling the laborers together! Oooohhh! Together, together, together, the blood, the blood, oh thank You for the blood. He has called us together—one body! Oooohhh thank You for the blood Lord! Thank You for the blood! Thank You for the name!

Ms. Annie led us singing Thank You for the Blood of Jesus

Scripture focus…

(30) And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being].

(31) What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]

(32) He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things?

(33) Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us?]

(34) Who is there to condemn [us]? Will Christ Jesus (the Messiah), Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of God actually pleading as He intercedes for us?

(35) Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword?

(36) Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter.

(37) Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.

(38) For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,

(39) Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:30-39 (AMPC)

Pastor Ray…

Now, let’s just lift up His name, the name that is above every other name, Jesus. I want to see that name magnified today in this chapel, in every situation, whatever we are concerned with or praying about, whatever we’ve been shown to do, whatever the call is for me and for you, the blood, the name that is above every other name—let’s lift it up now. Thank You Lord.

Ms. Annie led us singing There is Power in the Name Jesus

Pastor Ray…

Hallelujah, every chain, every chain, whatever that might have been, broken away, set free, delivered in Jesus’ name because there is power in and through the name that is above every other name. Hallelujah.

Scripture focus…

(3) Since you have [already] tasted the goodness and kindness of the Lord.

(4) Come to Him [then, to that] Living Stone which men tried and threw away, but which is chosen [and] precious in God’s sight.

(5) [Come] and, like living stones, be yourselves built [into] a spiritual house, for a holy (dedicated, consecrated) priesthood, to offer up [those] spiritual sacrifices [that are] acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ.

(24) He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed. 1 Peter 2:3-5, 24 (AMPC)

Pastor Ray…

Let’s say that together “By His stripes we have been healed.” We will remind ourselves about the bread and the blood that was shed. We are not taking the elements right now but we know what these things mean. The body that was broken for us, the blood that was shed, we remind ourselves this morning, those elements have taken away, set us totally free. When? Today!

Every pain has to leave. Every hindrance has to go! Every attempt of the enemy, stop it! Desist in your maneuvers! Stop in your maneuvers against this church. Whatever you planned, it is finished, finished, done, over! The attempts that you have made against the body of Christ in these days—over broken! Every chain, every hold, every plan of the enemy—destroyed!

Whatever has tried to come against this nation—oh no! No weapon formed against the United States of America will prosper! We believe this nation is one nation under God, indivisible. We’ll not be divided! We’re becoming more and more united together with one voice under heaven. And we declare it this morning that Jesus is Lord over America! Hallelujah, thank You Father.

We by faith see that. In places where we maybe didn’t know all that was going on, places behind the scenes, communities everywhere, men and women and children are beginning to see the light, are beginning to take the step toward that light.

Okay, thank You Father, we pray for every soul, in advance today, that will come into the body this Easter weekend. We lift these up in Jesus’ name. We call forth the lost to come in like never before! Souls! Oh coming from every direction in Jesus’ name here in this ministry, here at this church, in St Paul, in Rogers! Souls, we prepare the way by the power of the Holy Spirit today. You know the names Lord. You know the ones that are ready. You know the ones that are to come. By faith we welcome every single one of them and call them in. Calling them in, calling them to the light, calling them to the light in Jesus’ name.

Ms. Annie led singing Jesus, All for Jesus

Pastor Ray…

I heard somebody. Maybe it wasn’t in this room. Maybe it was out wherever GPAN would go. They have been saying “I can’t.” That’s what I heard. “I can’t. I can’t.” But Holy Spirit is saying today “You can. You will. You are. You’ve been equipped! This is your hour! This is your plan that I put within you! You can! You can do it! It’s not you. It’s Me working through you. So, change your tune! Change what you are speaking and change what you’ve been believing about you and turn your “I can’t” into “I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me!”

So turn it around. I already (ha, ha, ha) turned it around for you at that Cross at Calvary when that blood was shed and when the Word came forth “It is finished!” It was done so that every “I can’t” is turned around, upside down into “I can!”

Oh, we thank You for it this morning. Thank You for the “I can do it!” Thank You for the equipment to do it. Thank You for the power, Holy Spirit. Thank You for what You are doing in the Church in these days, in these hours, changing things around, shifting things more in Your right ways. Hallelujah. Miracles, signs, supernatural things happening – glory! Thank You for it Lord.

We receive, we receive, we receive so that we can give. We receive so that we can give an infusion within, more of Your power, more of Your presence, the enabling power, the equipping power of the precious Holy Spirit. Thank You for it Lord.
