Morning Prayer Summary for Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Pastor Tim led us singing Way Maker

Pastor Ray…

Hallelujah. We love it, Lord. We love You. This verse stuck out to me this morning. John 5:8, “Jesus said to him, ‘Rise, take up your bed and walk.’’ That’s a word for us. Get up and get out of bed and begin to walk, talk, declare, and believe.

Hallelujah. I keep some scriptures in my drawer, just about continuing to do what we’ve been singing about. Just continuing to move ahead, not looking back.

Scripture focus…

“Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you.” Proverbs 4:25 (ESV)

That doesn’t mean we’re just looking around, like “What in the world’s going on?” We keep our gaze straight out before us, looking up instead of looking down, of course.

“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13–14 (ESV)

“And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” John 5:14 (ESV)

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a crowd of witnesses…

I was just thinking about that this morning. There’s lots of witnesses. A crowd is a lot.

…let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” Hebrews 12:1 (ESV)

Pastor Ray…

In my Bible, right along the side of that scripture, I wrote down “Some people don’t even know they’re in a race.”  But we are in a race.  And it’s up to us to keep up the pace.

I’m just going to read what I wrote down this morning. While I was making a copy outside of my office, I heard this little phrase. “Don’t shrink back; stay on the attack.” And there were some other words. I thought I better get back in my office so I can write them down. This is what I heard. It’s almost kind of like a psalm but I wasn’t singing.

“Don’t shrink back, stay on the attack. Don’t look down, keep looking up. Don’t turn around and sit, but stay in His ways and run through it, whatever that might be. Don’t quit, His words are legit! The best thing you’ve ever heard is in the power in the written Word. The best thing. So you keep moving and He’ll keep doing.”

We just have to keep moving. Hallelujah. We want His plan fully and totally. We don’t want just our plan. We want our plan to be His plan. One of the things that He is continually ministering is that He is for us, as members of His body, to rise up. Like He said to the disabled man, “Get up, pick up your bed and walk.” He told him to do what he couldn’t do before.

We’ll declare it this morning like this, we have already begun to step over into things we’ve never stepped into before. And even those that are just in the world, they know we are stepping over into some different things!

We’re moving. Things are moving. Maybe we’re doing things and the world can see it. We’re doing things that we didn’t even think about doing before. But as members of the body of Christ, it is our call to never shrink back, turn around, vacillate, stay in fear. But it is His plan for us to stay on the attack. Hallelujah!

“Don’t shrink back but stay on the attack.” How can we do that? In our own strength, we can’t do it.  But in Him, in His Word, we can, we will, and we will continue to do it. Hallelujah. Thank you, Father. Thank you, Lord. Hallelujah!

I’m just having a Selah… Just stick with Him and think on the things that He’s done for you personally, for me personally, all of the things that He’s already been so faithful to do for you and for me, for us as Children of the Most High God, King of kings, Lord of Lords. He’s changed things that we could never have changed. He’s has connected us with people we could never be connected to. We wouldn’t even know how to do that. He’s gotten us into positions, just like we are here today. We weren’t doing this a few weeks ago. We weren’t connecting all over the earth, online live, and lifting up our voices together. We weren’t doing that before.

These are new days, different days. Every day, here in the chapel, we’re connecting with over 500 people. That is more people than we could put in this chapel. We’re all connecting together. We’re believing in the same things. We’re asking for the same things. We’re calling the things that are not, as though they were. We’re staying up, we’re not staying down. We’ve not shut down, but we’ve opened up and we’re continually contending for the plans and the purposes of God to open up wider than ever before.

And we can see it, we can almost taste it. An awakening, we can say, a rain… the former rain the latter rain together. Outpourings of the Holy Spirit all over the earth. That when nation upon nation upon nation, when they open, when they really open up, they will… we believe things are opening up into the new.  Different days than they ever were before. Not that they’re worse, but they’re what? They’re getting better, and better, and better!  Hallelujah.

Pastor Tim led us singing You Are Good (Every day Is Sweeter, Every Day Is Better)

Pastor Ray…

That’s good, Tim. Just keep playing, and for all of us, let’s just rest in Him.  Pastor Tim will just play for a little bit. And just let those notes, let the sound…sounds… let the manifested presence today minister to you, come upon you, move through you, touch you, change you, change us.

We receive, Lord, we receive. A fresh touch. Refreshing today. A lifting this morning.

♪ Eyes to see and ears to hear. You’re so near. It’s Your presence, Lord. The move of Your Spirit. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Beautiful, beautiful to me. You are so beautiful to us. We love You, Lord. We turn our eyes up, look up, take our seat today in heavenly places so we can look down. These are better days, turning and turning and turning into even better days, greater days, changing. ♪

Why don’t you just sing a little bit, Tim. Please, just go with this flow, just, whatever’s on your heart.

Pastor Tim sings…

♪ Your presence satisfies, it’s Your presence, it fills me up
It’s Your presence that alone can satisfy
It’s Your presence where I’d find rest for my soul
It’s Your presence I find peace that makes me whole
I find all I need in Your presence, Lord
It’s Your presence where my heart becomes free
It’s Your presence, Lord. I welcome Your presence
I thank you, Lord, for Your presence. ♪

Pastor Ray…

Hallelujah, Lord. Thank you for that entrance that way. Open ways right to the throne. Thank you that you made us to be righteous so we could come right up and right in and bow.

Thank you for the beautiful, precious Holy Spirit. Thank you for the blood that was shed through Your Son Jesus. We lift up the name, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.

Pastor Tim led us singing the name Jesus

Prayer by Pastor Lynne Hammond:

Father, right now in the name of Jesus, we so thank You. We’re so grateful for what You are doing on this earth. Like we have sung and said this morning, You’re working. Things are changing. We thank You that even the shaking that’s happening on this earth now, You are shaking things loose, breaking open some ancient wells, releasing Your glory all over the earth. We praise You for all You are doing on our behalf. Thank You. We do. We praise You. We thank You.

Thank You for bringing Your angel army reinforcements from heaven. We thank You for Your governing angels who right now stand with us in a divine coalition, a merger of forces ready to push forth and break free the plans and purposes of the greatest outpouring of Your glory and power. When would that be? Right now, today, the 20th.

Father, we stand here in accordance or in other words, in agreement with Your Word, praying for those in authority as You’ve commanded us to do. Hallelujah! In America and all other nations in the world, unwrap, reveal Your divine purpose in their lives, light their paths, give them discernment, wisdom, knowledge to make godly decisions for their nations. And from our seat of authority which You’ve given unto us, we decree, you forces of evil, powers and principalities, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in high places, you must stop! Cease and desist your activities. You will not hinder. You cannot hinder the work of the Church and according to Matthew 16:18, the gates of hell will not prevail against us, the Church. We have the keys to the Kingdom in our possession. We are the apostolic praying church, the remnant triumphant reserve who will call those things that be not as though they are and will use our authority to bind and loose with all heaven backing our declaration.

You’ve given Your angels charge over us as Your heirs, to keep us in all of our ways, to defend us and preserve us. You’ve instructed us to decree a thing, and it shall be established. Just as Elisha instructed and helped King Joash to shoot an arrow of Your deliverance. Father, we declare and decree that Your assembled angel army to release arrows of deliverance at strangleholds of demonic forces, demonic holds on the institutions of our government and other governments around the world. This is the time and this is the hour. We take authority over these forces of evil and we DECREE that we, the church, are able to operate free and loosed from these demonic holds.

Angels, we decree … carry our words aligned with the Word of God to target the evil schemes of the Antichrist agendas that come against Your church. We loose arrows of deliverance to target the deception; the anti-Semitism and the Antichrist doctrine that has been taught to our children and declare those doctrines are crushed and broken by the arrows targeted by the angelic armies. We declare … proper aim, precise aim shot at the correct target, against the agenda of the Antichrist.

We decree the arrow of deliverance shot at the demonic, Antichrist forces and agenda trying to undermine our President, Congress and Supreme Court. Thank You. Father, for the arrow that struck against the coup d’etat that tried to bring down our President. Continue to guard and protect our President, his administration, and cabinet. Give them supernatural intelligence, discernment, wisdom, and boldness to carry out the plans the arrows have enabled. Reveal to each one their anointed purpose to lead our nation in the biblical foundations of our historical past and in the true

admonition of the Lord. We pray a cocoon, a hedge of protection around all of them; Psalm 91 … cover them all with the blood of Jesus Christ, the Anointed One. In this day and this hour, we pray extra protection, courage, and strength for our Attorney General William Barr that he may breakthrough the evil barricades and root out all the hidden evil and secret plots of the enemy. We decree arrows to penetrate their deep bunkers of evil and bring those responsible before the courts of heaven.

We authorize and decree arrows to be loosed to strike the enemies of God and His church. Great deliverance from the claws and talons of the wicked one, striking blows against the Antichrist agendas against the church.

We decree and send an arrow to obliterate the unjust, corrupt media, but not the righteous media. The lies and deceit are targeted by the arrow, opened up and revealed for all to see. Expose their motives and intent and open the eyes of the people to see the evil untruths that the unjust media spews. We declare they are obliterated, bankrupt, taken down and their credibility destroyed. Angels are on assignment and the arrows shot forth will destroy some things and leave devastation, others will break apart and expose for all to see the reality of the evil yet others will release the purposes of God and cut the cords that the enemy has used for bondage.

The battle lines are drawn, our decrees are shot by angels anointed to carry our words to destroy the works of the enemy and free God’s people to reveal Who You are. Our unified armies are challenging the thrones of iniquity, idolatry, and rebellion. We ARE cleaning up the environment … cleaning it and freeing it for Your purpose for the world You created. Father, we ask you in the name of Jesus, to help us to manage the time, Your Time in this time of the shaking and greatest outpouring -help us to hear Your voice clearer, and be ready to obey as we co-labor with the angel armies on assignment.

Pastor Ray…

The Church, members of the body, all in one accord, all in agreement. We set ourselves in agreement, this day. These things shall come to pass. No weapon from the enemy shall prosper. This morning, we declare confusion in the enemy’s camp and those things that were stolen, we declare it today, they shall be restored. It could be time, finances, whatever it might have been, restored! Even seven times greater. What the enemy took, we take it back. We call it back. We loose our ministering spirits this morning and say “Go!” Go forth and bring in those things, bring in the finances, bring in the restorations, those things that were lost! Hallelujah! In other words “A GREAT RECOVERY!” Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Ha! Ha! Ha!

We receive it on behalf of the churches, on behalf of our church, Living Word Christian Center. Hallelujah. Churches all over the earth, the body of Christ. Hallelujah. You’re good, Lord. Hallelujah.

When we declare, “You are good, Lord.” We have to absolutely believe it. We have to receive it. That is what He says in His Word. Hallelujah.

Pastor Tim led us singing You Are Good

Pastor Ray…

I want to make you aware of the prayer I prayed today that Pastor Lynne prayed on April 27, 2020 here in the chapel. I would encourage you to go back in our GPAN archives. They go back months and months ago. It can be a help to go over what was prayed and bring these things back up to the Lord, especially prophecies, prophetic Words that have been spoken forth. We can bring them back up to the Lord and say “Lord, You said this.” We are really reminding ourselves, but we bring them before Him and believe they are still working. They are working right now. That’s part of the way He works when we say, “He’s working for us right now.”

He’s working through the words that we speak. Let’s not speak words of doubt of fear because those things will work also. Let’s speak words of faith and believe to receive all those things we declare. Things are looking up, things are turning around, many things are being restored. All shall be restored but it will be better! And it will keep on getting better because that’s what the Word says. Hallelujah!

Thank You for joining us this morning, connecting with us. We’re connected with you by the Spirit. You’re blessed. We’re blessed. As members of the body, whatever we do, set our hands too, there is prosperity there. God is good. His Word is still the same. It’s working today. So, we’ll keep moving, keep declaring in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah.
