Morning Prayer Summary for Wednesday August 1, 2018

Pastor Ray…

Good morning. If you were in here yesterday, that was blessed. It’s always blessed. When Ms. Annie started playing that one song, and Ms. Jeani said it too, there was just a lifting in here. It opened up a door for declaration. A lot of declarations and prophecy and words spoken like that are to lift the body, encourage the body. Prophecy is never to bring you down. It’s always up. I love to go back and re-read them on GPAN just to see what He said.

I watched something yesterday from Keith Moore. It was from a couple weeks ago about the boat in Branson that went down in the water. So many people died in that accident. One of them was a man who was supposedly driving the boat. He was a very involved member of the Branson church, a really awesome man. It’s devastating, such a tragedy. What that tends to do is easily leave people with so many questions.

The first part of his message was from I Kings 19 where it speaks about a windstorm and God wasn’t in the wind. And then there was an earthquake and fire but he wasn’t in that either. But it was a still small voice. So, he kept declaring “This storm was not from God.” Just so people could get that straight.

He had been just praying about it and the Lord gave him a revelation from heaven which he shared with the people in his church. The Lord showed him that the children and the believers that had died on that boat, they were not in the water. They were in the glory. And he read a scripture where Jesus takes the hand of the one exiting earth coming to heaven. I believe it was from the Message translation. So, his point was it may have been tragic for an instant. Maybe they suffered for a minute or so. But then immediately they were not in the water. They were in the glory.

Keith Moore is a pilot. I don’t know if you ever heard him talk about this but his father would never fly with him. A few years ago, Keith was going somewhere to minister and his father wanted to fly along with him. So Keith is flying the plane and his father is sitting in the back. It’s a small plane and his father has a heart attack and dies. Keith can’t just jump up and go back to see what’s going on with his father because he has to fly the plane. He had to wait to land the plane. He said that took him a few days to get over the shock. Questions came to him like “Why did I even let him come on the plane? Why did he even come on the plane? Why did he decide now to come on the plane? Did he have a heart attack because he came on the plane?” You know, you could just go down that road of questioning.

But his point was to focus on the things that we do know. Don’t focus on the things we don’t know because if we don’t know them, we don’t know them and we don’t have an answer for the things that we don’t know. And he said, basically, there are more things that we don’t know than things we do know. So, if you focus on the things that you don’t know and question and question then darkness begins to come in and that would be one road. But if you focus on what you do know: Who He is, what His Word says, focus on the good, you’ll be over on the road of lightness not on the road of darkness.

Ms. Jeani…

And if you need to know, He’ll tell you.

Pastor Ray…

That’s true. Remember I shared concerning that a while ago. There was a girl that had asked me to pray for her because she hadn’t heard from heaven about a certain deal. And she said she always hears the voice of the Lord… But that was her answer. He didn’t say anything about it. So, she got her answer.

I thought that was an interesting observation on that. As soon as they went in that water, they exited and they were in the glory of God. Hallelujah.

First thing I want to do is pray over three requests I received for prayer. Sometimes people will send them in with their offering and sow toward their healing or whatever they need. I have already lifted them up and mentioned them before the Lord. What I want to do is for just a few minutes pray in tongues over these requests. You pray along with me. If you have your own requests, lift them up to heaven also. We will pray in the Holy Ghost concerning them. That’s how we can pray the perfect will of God – in other tongues. Hallelujah.

Prayed in Tongues…


In Jesus’ name, whatever attack, however the enemy was trying to work his way, we use the blood of the Lamb against him
We declare in Jesus’ name a “Complete turnaround!”
And absolute, radical, supernatural turnaround in Jesus’ name
And we declare this morning under the anointing of the Holy Spirit “Devil, take your hands off bodies, take your hands off finances, get out, Get away, desist in your maneuvers against the body of Christ in Jesus’ name!”
Stop it now in Jesus’ name

Ms. Annie…

You know that song is really a sacrifice of praise. Many people might not know the story behind it. The guy that wrote the song had just had his baby die. This is somebody who has written a lot of worship songs. Out of his heart break… You know it’s like what Keith Moore said. We don’t focus on what we don’t know. We focus on what we do know. What we do know is that God never destroys or kills or steals. It’s the Devil. So, no matter what the Devil does, we focus on what we know and that is that God is a good God. And He is the God of miracles! Hallelujah!

Ms. Annie continued singing I Believe in You

Ms. Annie…

I was remembering this. The Lord spoke this to me years ago about miracles. Because at that time in my walk, it seemed like everybody I knew was focusing on miracles, miracles, miracles. It was like outward signs, physical signs, and yet I was seeing so much of, like not an emotional rest. I don’t know how to describe it but, you know there was a lot of striving, maybe strife-y stuff I was witnessing. I was kind of in this swirling. I was a baby Christian and it was like a swirling. I don’t know what to call it. Anyways what matters is the Lord spoke to me and it was like in a time of prayer where I was crying out to see signs and wonders and miracles and all these things. And all of a sudden that still small voice. You know He’s not in the whirlwind and He’s not in the earthquake. He’s in that little still small voice. And He said to me “You know, what’s a greater miracle than A, B, C, D, E, the things that we were all expecting… We wanted to see something spectacular. He said “You know what’s a greater miracle than that, is when someone has My peace and they have My joy in the midst of whatever.” You know the Devil can fake signs and wonders. Jesus said he would. But he can never fake that.

And He said “people in the world, that’s what they marvel at. That’s the sign and the wonder that draws people to Me. There are so many in torment or they are so not at rest and then they witness the working of My Spirit on the inside and they marvel at that. That is a sign and a wonder and a miracle that can never be counterfeited by the Devil. Maybe for a minute or two he can counterfeit but then when the storms of life come, the person whose house is built on the rock of My Word and they are standing, that can’t be naysayed.”

That’s another thing about that song that guy wrote. It would have been the perfect will of God for his baby to be raised from the dead. But for whatever reasons that we don’t understand, the perfect will of God was not done in that situation. But he made a decision that the perfect will of God will be done in me. I am going to praise my God no matter what! And so those are signs and miracles and wonders that we can perform everyday by a matter of our decision.

I was so frustrated one time because I had gone down to the hospital and I even got the nurse to take this dead baby out of cooler. And I was kneeling on the floor of the morgue and I was praying for this baby to be raised up and this baby wasn’t being raised up from the dead! And I was like “God, why?” But it’s like what Keith Moore said “There are so many things, way more things we don’t understand than what we do understand but we can choose to believe what we do know.” We know that God is good and He’s worthy of praise and He’s never the stealer and killer and destroyer. He is always the raiser up of life and when we choose that, that’s a light that shines in a dark place. Glory to God! That is a miracle and it’s a greater miracle, it’s a spiritual miracle which is greater than a physical miracle. Hallelujah!

Pastor Ray..

That’s a good way to look at signs, wonders, miracles. To me it should be normal but maybe we don’t always think it’s normal when we do hear that small still voice because He is speaking. When I pulled into the parking space this morning before I could get my foot on the pavement, I heard one word, “assignments.” Just like that.

I mean it wasn’t audible but it was audible. It was a still small voice and it said “assignments.” And I believe this is an assignment to focus on the good and things that we know about Him and about His Word and the power of the Holy Spirit and what He wants for us and what He has done for us. And I know people and I am sure that you do to, believers. I know people that have gone through the loss of a child and because of Him, because of the power of the Holy Spirit within them, they not only survived such a situation, they went higher, they went further, they did what this man did who wrote that song, I believe in the God of miracles.

Scripture focus…

I looked up something about assignments in the Bible. In II Timothy, I will just read a little bit of this.

(1-2) I, Paul, am on special assignment for Christ, carrying out God’s plan laid out in the Message of Life by Jesus. I write this to you, Timothy, the son I love so much. All the best from our God and Christ be yours!

To Be Bold With God’s Gifts
(3-4) Every time I say your name in prayer—which is practically all the time—I thank God for you, the God I worship with my whole life in the tradition of my ancestors. I miss you a lot, especially when I remember that last tearful good-bye, and I look forward to a joy-packed reunion.

(5-7) That precious memory triggers another: your honest faith—and what a rich faith it is, handed down from your grandmother Lois to your mother Eunice, and now to you! And the special gift of ministry you received when I laid hands on you and prayed—keep that ablaze! God doesn’t want us to be shy with his gifts, but bold and loving and sensible.

Okay, he doesn’t want us to be shy about it. We are gifted.

(8-10) So don’t be embarrassed to speak up for our Master or for me, his prisoner. Take your share of suffering for the Message along with the rest of us. We can only keep on going, after all, by the power of God, who first saved us and then called us to this holy work. We had nothing to do with it. It was all his idea, a gift prepared for us in Jesus long before we knew anything about it. But we know it now. Since the appearance of our Savior, nothing could be plainer: death defeated, life vindicated in a steady blaze of light, all through the work of Jesus.

Pastor Ray…

We all have assignments. We all have an assignment but we have plural assignments. And just real quickly things that we… how do we even know what it is. How do we carry it out?

1. We stay in the Word. I heard Kenneth Copeland say this yesterday “Don’t always say what Kenneth Copeland said or Jerry Savelle said. Say the Bible says..” So, his direction was to get yourself in the Word.
2. Pray fervently. That’s not just loud. It can be loud but I can be very soft. It’s heart felt.
3. Be sure that we have a submissive will to the plan of God, to the voice of God, what He says, what He tells us, just be quick on it. You hear one Word, repeat it, keep repeating it.
4. Expect to continually hear His voice.

Continued praying…

He is good all the time – He is never not good!
His Word is always working – how can we not be blessed!
We are the blessed!
Hallelujah, thank You, Lord
Our nation is blessed, our President is blessed, our Vice President is blessed
The plan for this nation is a blessed plan!
We declare this morning that Jesus is Lord over America, period
Things have turned and things are changing more in God’s will and God’s way! Hallelujah!
We pray the blood of Jesus over our President, our congress, the senate, everyone in positions of authority in our nation!
We believe and declare the plan the purpose that, God, You have for us, it shall come to pass!
We take authority; hold the blood against the operation that is trying to make its way through our country to bring division, those that are blaming the good things for division
We say “No! Wake up! Get out of your funk! Get with God and get out of every deceiving way in Jesus’ name”
We are not going that way, we are going in a new way!
We are going in a higher way, going in God’s way for America!
Hallelujah! Glory!
Lining some things up that were way out of alignment
You know the way that is in a car, if your tires, your front end is out of alignment, you can hardly drive that thing and your steering wheel will shake every way that you go. It’s the same way in us! If we are out of alignment, there is a bumpy road ahead!
So we declare “One nation under God indivisible, coming together, getting together, the Bible being lifted up! Lifted up! The Word of God! Hallelujah!
Churches on the increase, the move of the Spirit – more and more and more and more and more
An awakening, revivals turning into an awakening in Jesus’ name
The outpouring of the Holy Spirit!
You said, Lord, in Your Word, it would be the former rain and the latter rain together!
Oooohhh My!
And how are the elections going to go? Mid-term elections?
They are going to go God’s Way!
Shout it from the rooftops “It’s going to go God’s way!”
Hear ye, hear ye, it’s going God’s way in the USA!

Ms. Jeani shared…

So, America is not only Israel’s greatest advocate, but we declare that today “America is the persecuted Churches’ greatest advocate.” I am reading a tweet from President Trump on July 26 and he’s talking about Pastor Andrew Brunson and I love this. Our president is bold on behalf of the persecuted Church. So, we declare an increase of that, a Holy Ghost resolve on behalf of the persecuted Church. Here is what our president tweeted:

“The United States will impose large sanctions on Turkey for their long-time detainment of Pastor Andrew Brunson, a great Christian, family man, and wonderful human being. He is suffering greatly. This innocent man of faith should be released immediately.”

Continued praying…

Father, thank You! You have given our country a president that stands boldly on behalf of the persecuted Church
And we declare and stand with our president and command, demand immediate release of the persecuted Church
We are massive advocates of Israel and of the persecuted Church!

Here is what our Secretary of State said: “We believe religious freedom is central to the world and to America’s place in the world.

Religious freedom – central to the world and America’s place in the world
We make it a real priority, liberty and freedom
On behalf of America! America keeps this a priority!
The freedom and the liberty to proclaim Your goodness, Father, throughout the earth!
This country was founded on that! The hunger for freedom and liberty to worship You!
And we thank You that we remain resolved, that we are the defenders of freedom and liberty!
Thank You, Father

Ms. Annie led us singing God Bless America

Continued praying…

State by state by state including our state is moving more in God’s perfect will and way
Hallelujah, thank You for the blood Lord
We apply of Jesus over our country
Thank You for the protection through the blood
No weapon formed against us can prosper – we are protected through that covering of the precious holy blood of Jesus
We thank You for it
This is a good day, this is a great day, it’s an overcoming day in Him, in You
We thank You for it in advance in Jesus’ name, Amen
