Morning Prayer Summary for Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Ms. Annie led us singing For Your Name Is Holy

Pastor Ray…

At first I heard it like this: “It will be worth it.” And then it seemed like it changed to “It is worth it.” It’s worth it today because our todays are tomorrow’s past days. We can look back on our past days, maybe see times when we thought maybe it wasn’t worth it and so we went another way or we just sat down. But I’m reminded today, “it’s worth it” today to do what He’s calling us to do. If it is to worship Him, we worship Him because it will be worth it for today. It will be worth it in the steps. It will be worth it through the plans. It will be worth it by the words that we speak. It will be worth it concerning the decisions that we make. Then we can look back on our past days and know, out into the future, we can know back in the past that was worth it in every single way. Hallelujah.

Ms. Jeani…

You know He not only made it worth it today, He made it worth it already.
So, Holy Spirit, I just thank You for Your Word
And we proclaim this over our country, over our government, and over the body of Christ today

So this passage in Isaiah in the Message completely and fully shows His heart toward us, His heart toward the body of Christ, His heart toward our country, His heart toward our children, His heart toward the world. It also shows that He knows us. And despite when we walk away, He’s always there and at the ready in what He’s up to today.

Scripture focus…

God Takes the Time to Do Everything Right
(15-17) God, the Master, The Holy of Israel, has this solemn counsel:

So, here’s the Father. Father, You even come to us right now giving us solemn council.

Your salvation requires you to turn back to me and stop your silly efforts to save yourselves.

Father, we thank You so much that we can’t save ourselves. And any effort to do that is silly.

Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on me—

Your strength, our strength, our country’s strength, our government’s strength comes from settling down in complete dependence on You, Father. We thank You for that strength.

The very thing you’ve been unwilling to do. You’ve said, ‘Nothing doing! We’ll rush off on horseback!’ You’ll rush off, all right! Just not far enough! You’ve said, ‘We’ll ride off on fast horses!’ Do you think your pursuers ride old nags?

He knows what our enemy is like.

Think again: A thousand of you will scatter before one attacker. Before a mere five you’ll all run off.

Doesn’t this sound like times when our country has done this, when our government has done this? When we’ve even done it?

There’ll be nothing left of you—a flagpole on a hill with no flag, a signpost on a roadside with the sign torn off.

But here is our God and the good news of today:

(18) But God’s not finished. He’s waiting around to be gracious to you.

Even today His long suffering draws us in and causes us to receive grace and to change the way it looks with our prayer and with our dependence on Him.

He’s gathering strength to show mercy to you. God takes the time to do everything right—everything. Those who wait around for him are the lucky ones.

So we declare this over our country right now.

(19-22) Oh yes, people of Zion, citizens of Jerusalem, your time of tears is over. Cry for help and you’ll find it’s grace and more grace. The moment he hears, he’ll answer.

We speak this over President Trump.

Just as the Master kept you alive during the hard times, he’ll keep your teacher alive and present among you. Your teacher will be right there, local and on the job, urging you on whenever you wander left or right: “This is the right road. Walk down this road.” You’ll scrap your expensive and fashionable god-images. You’ll throw them in the trash as so much garbage, saying, “Good riddance!”

Even those things that we hold on to that seem so valuable, look what happens when we throw them down in the fire.

(23-26) God will provide rain for the seeds you sow. The grain that grows will be abundant. Your cattle will range far and wide. Oblivious to war and earthquake, the oxen and donkeys you use for hauling and plowing will be fed well near running brooks that flow freely from mountains and hills. Better yet, on the Day God heals his people of the wounds and bruises from the time of punishment, moonlight will flare into sunlight, and sunlight, like a whole week of sunshine at once, will flood the land. Isaiah 30:15–26 (MSG)

Father, we thank You right now that sunlight, like a whole week of sunshine, floods the land
The light of the sun, the light of the Most High, the light of the Holy One, Jesus!
It floods the elections, it floods the Whitehouse, it floods the governor’s mansion in Minnesota on Summit Avenue, it floods, it floods, it floods the hearts of the people, the hearts of the Church.

Pastor Ray…

I don’t know what it was you said but Paula White came up. Let’s lift her up because of the voice she has straight in to the President. The power of the Spirit working though her and we were reminded this morning how President Trump said he loves to have people pray in tongues over him. Hello?

Father, thank You for the new
Thank You that these days are new days
Thank You for the changes that have come to pass already but the things that will come
We pray over Paula White and the direction by Your Spirit and the influence from heaven that she will continually bring forth into the White House, those she is connected with especially President Trump
We lift up President Trump – the commander, the head of our nation
For utterance, for direction, and the move of Your Spirit right through the White House
We believe for every in the days, the weeks, the months that are to come every lie will be uncovered
We will keep on contending for greater, for the right ways
Keep declaring for our own state Minnesota to more in God’s way!
And some of the old ways will be dropped off
And we pray for the new ways, the new days, the new plans
The new, the new, the new days!
Declaring the favor of God goes before this state
For the election that will be coming in November
Hallelujah, the elections, we hold up the elections today in Jesus’ name
Calling things to move, calling things to change
We’re not going back. We’re not going in the ditch—thank You, Father
Every lie, be exposed, be uncovered, be revealed
The truth shall come to pass in Jesus’ name
Holding up the body of the Lord Jesus Christ
Here in our own state—we are moving in the right way
The Church is getting up, the Church is standing up
The Church is declaring! The Church believing!
Thank You, Father!

Some old plans are just continually being shaken away. Some old ways that we used to go in Minnesota, they’re shaking off despite the whirlwind around us. In the natural, we move further into the realm of the Spirit internally and declare “Things are moving. Things are changing. Things are moving more in the right way and things are changing into the right plans.”

Where maybe some in the Church have gone to sleep, we say today
Wake up, get up, it’s time, be alert, be ready, be contending
Be calling, be speaking, be receiving, be being filled with the Holy Spirit!

Ms. Jeani…

He sets a table, He’s setting a table even now
The table has already been set for Minnesota in the presence of her enemies
Minnesota, be at rest, be at rest, and partake of the goodness of God
Wisdom from the throne room! We declare over you, Minnesota
Over the house, over the Senate
Over all leadership, over the school boards
You partake of the wisdom of the Most High in the presence of your enemies
And it is a good thing, an abundant thing
The abundance of the goodness of God flows out of Minnesota
From the Mississippi to the east and the west and the north and the south
Flow, flow, flow! Go! Go! Go!
The Holy One, the Holy One! Far and above!
Wise council in Minnesota!

Pastor Ray…

We pray over the Basilica, over the Cathedral
Just by faith we walk right on in!
We declare these churches are waking up! These members are waking up!
Where the plan of God and the purpose of God shall come to pass!
We declare a turnaround, a change in Jesus’ name
We pray over every minister there, the priests in the Basilica and in the Cathedral
We have influence – this is our city!
In St. Paul we have a ministry that has influence just a few blocks away
in the Cathedral, these ministries are waking up
It’s time for an awakening all across this state
City by city, little village by little village, little towns – hallelujah!
We contend for it, we pray for those voices within these ministries to rise up
The power of the Holy Spirit, we pray for salvations everywhere
The baptism of the Holy Ghost! You’ve done it before Lord—You’ll do it again!
You did it then – You’ll do it now! These are the times!

Ms. Jeani…

St. Paul, we remind you of your name! You were named after St. Paul!
The road of Damascus moment is upon you, St. Paul!
Where you turn! You turn in the Capitol!
God says “Why are you persecuting me, Saul?”
Your name has been changed to Paul!
You will no longer deny the Most High
St. Paul the capitol of Minnesota—the legacy of St. Paul!
Thank You, Father!
You have already established the legacy of St. Paul! It has already been established!
The line has been drawn, the times have been set
It is time for the Damascus moment! It is time for the harvest to come in!
By the very ones that would persecute the ones that belong to You
And, Father, we thank You for a greater awakening
And, Father, we thank You that You named that city, You named our capital!
Right where the intersection is at the Mississippi river where the water flows, the Spirit goes!
The Legacy of St. Paul has already begun!

Ms. Annie…

♪ In Minneapolis the city of waters will flow with water
Waters of the Spirit putting down all strife Oh, hallelujah,
Over all of Minnesota will be a covering, a covering
And a wall of fire around us, fire of the Holy Ghost
And what the enemy meant for evil, will be turned for good
As the glory of God rules in our state and His people stand up for His truth
Just as we should ♪

Ms. Jeani…

There is no opposite to Your power!
There is no opposite for the light consumes the darkness and we thank You!
There is Your matchless power right now going and flowing! even when it’s snowing!
Father, we thank You for the water of the Spirit!
The matchless power of God that touches the heart of the capitol
Today, even already, even right now!

Ms. Annie…

♪ And those that sat in darkness, and in the shadow of death
Upon them, upon them God’s light has shined
Into all the places, dark places of sorrow and sin and bondage
On them who are in darkness, a light has shined
A light has shined upon those who are trapped in the confusion of sin
The light of Jesus has shined on those who are all bound up within

Go tell it on the mountain! Shout it from the housetops!
Jesus Christ has set you free!
Jesus is Lord over Minnesota – Minneapolis and St. Paul
Oh, most of all, He is Lord in me, He is Lord in me, He is Lord in you and me
He is Lord and He is a door, He is Lord in you and me ♪

Pastor Ray

Those words, those prophetic words that have been spoken over Minneapolis and St. Paul, all along that river where 35W crosses over it, up here on the northern part of the United States, revival will begin to break out! It shall! It is coming to pass. No man can stop it. No religious devils can stop it. It shall come to pass. The words that were spoken forth years ago, they are beginning to come to pass. For the doors are open. The windows have been opened. People are beginning to respond to the power of the Holy Ghost and these things shall come to pass. No weapon, no weapon of the enemy… What was declared, it shall unfold and it shall come forth and it will move on down south just like the river flows. The rivers of God will flow.

And out of St. Louis Missouri, that light that came forth back in the nineties, that expression of the Holy Ghost, that move of the Holy Spirit that came up and came out of St. Louis, going every direction in the United States, it shall unfold and it shall do the work that it was declared to do in Jesus’ name, wonderful, magnificent revivals turning into the last great awakening, the former and the latter rain together, bringing the body up, bringing the souls in, healing the bodies, restoring the body.

Continued praying…

Thank You, Father
Father, just the White House came back up in my heart again
If there be any other garbage cans that need to be dumped out, we believe for them to be dumped out
Just things that are working against Your plan, where the Devil is trying to arrange people to say things, trying to have his way
Devil, we remind you today “You are a defeated foe”
This country is and will continually rise up in the plan and in the purpose of God almighty
We declare “Jesus is Lord over America!”
No weapon formed against our country, no evil plan, no resources orchestrated by the enemy shall be able to work
We declare somethings to be “dried up!”
Some rivers of influence that are negative “dry up!”
Behind the scenes once again, “Stop in your maneuvers, desist in your plans”
For we will be what we’ve been preplanned to be – one nation under God, indivisible
We plead and declare the blood for unity
We say “We’re coming together!”
No weapon, not any weapon – we plead, declare, speak the blood!
In that blood and through that blood we overcome because You overcame
You sent Your Son, thank You for what was done on the Cross
Oh, thank You Lord for the Cross

Ms. Annie led us singing Thank You for Your Blood

Pastor Ray…

Some things that seem to be so big, some things that seem to have such an influence in these days, they shall vanish and become nothing. Some things that seem to be such a road block shall be moved out of the way. Some voices that seemed to have a way today will have no way tomorrow. For things are changing and they shall continually change. But as the Church, as members of the body, we stand today in agreement. We are moving in the right way. The voices of negativity, the voices of lies, the voices that try to hinder that plan shall vanish and come to nothing.

Continued praying…

Oh, thank You, Father, Lord
For where the enemy has tried to come in, You come with Your standard
Holy Spirit, like a flood, You push them out
Be destroyed, come to nothing in Jesus’ name
Families are coming back together again, families – better than they were before
We plead the blood of Jesus over families today
For our own family here at Living Word and other ministries, of course
We hold them up this morning: fathers and mothers and children too
Thank You for the ministry of Your Spirit
For making things new where they have gotten to be old
Stirring things up by Your Spirit
Holy Spirit, we ask for that ministry of Your Spirit
Ministering spirits, we ask you to go work on our behalf in Jesus’ name
Some that have left the family are coming back in
We are talking spiritual right now, they have left the body, they moved away, they went another way but they too shall be restored in these days
These are new days; these are not like the old days
We are not going back to the old days, these are new days (ha, ha, ha)!
We reach ahead, stretch ourselves out toward the future and prepare the way!
Call those low places up! Fill them in!
Call those high places down! We prepare the way of the Lord today!
And that is a good way, a great way, a holy way, and that’s the right way! Hallelujah!

Ms. Annie led us singing We Worship You

Pastor Ray…

Seems like when we say that, when we sing that, “We worship You,” to me it adjusts our spiritual eyes and we see more clearly upward. We see less of the things that are around us, we as a company here in the Chapel but we individually, we worship the King of kings and the Lord of lords.

♪ Oh, thank You Lord, thank You, Father
Thank You, hallelujah
Holy, holy, so holy are You, Lord ♪

Continued praying…

Quick to hear and quick to obey—quick to look up instead of looking down
Quick to call things that are not as though they were
Continually, quickly walking out what we hear
Quick to see and quick to obey—quick to walk and quick to contend to go His way
Hallelujah, thank You for this day
We lift up our pastors Mac and Lynne—stand beside them, stand behind them
Declaring you are going to go all the way
The vision within your hearts shall come to pass
You’re healthy, prosperous in every way!
No weapon formed against you will prosper
You know what to do, what to say, and you know when
Hallelujah, this day is blessed by God almighty
We didn’t make it to happen, He already made it happen
We lift up the ministry of Yours Spirit today
Hold fast to what You’ve called us individually to do and then corporately together as a body
We give You praise for it today in Jesus’ name Amen
