Morning Prayer Summary for Wednesday, October 3, 2018

Ms. Annie led us singing It Is Well With MY Soul

Pastor Ray…

Even when we can’t feel it, He is working. Or even when we can’t see it, He is working. So, therefore, it is well with my soul. You know the more you say that, the more it is well, the more we get a clue that it is well. And sometimes it will take five minutes or more.

Are you tired of praying? Are you tired of praying for the government? No! Are you tired of pushing against the enemy? Where is the enemy? Under our feet. He has been defeated but he’s doing everything he can to pretend he’s not been defeated.

It’s amazing and it’s miraculous that God Almighty, the creator of the universe, saw fit to set us here on this earth to do the work for heaven.

The following excerpt was taken from Tongues, Beyond the Upper Room by Kenneth E. Hagin:

ROMANS 8:26-27
(26) . . . The Spirit itself [a better translation would be ‘Himself’] maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (27) And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

In the early days of my ministry, P.C. Nelson (we young ministers called him Dad Nelson) was considered the number one authority on the Greek language in America. I didn’t go to Dad Nelson’s Bible school, but I heard him preach a number of times, and I collected almost all the books he ever published. He had 12 years of higher education, and I once heard him say that he could speak and write 32 different languages. (That beats me by 31!)

When commenting on this verse, Dad Nelson said, “Actually, the Greek literally says, ‘The Holy Spirit maketh intercession for us in groanings that cannot be uttered in articulate speech.” He went on to explain that “articulate speech” refers to our regular kind of speech.

Dad Nelson went on to point out that these “groanings also included praying in other tongues. Paul is talking about utterances or groanings in prayer that “cannot be uttered in articulate speech. Dad Nelson stressed that these groanings are not something the Holy Ghost does apart from you. Rather, the Holy Spirit helps you pray in groanings.

The Amplified version of First Corinthians 14:14 shows us more clearly our relationship with the Holy Spirit in prayer: “For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my spirit [by the Holy Spirit within me] prays….” Again, when you pray in tongues, it is your spirit by the Holy Spirit within you praying. The Holy Spirit within gives you the utterance, and you speak it out of your spirit. You do the talking—He gives the utterance.

By this method, then, the Holy Spirit helps you to pray according to the perfect will of God—and to pray out the perfect will of God. This is the way things should be prayed for!

“And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD.”

Praying in the Spirit in groanings is also something the Holy Spirit does not do apart from you. Those groanings are prompted by the Holy Ghost, coming from deep inside you. But you allow them to escape your lips as you open your mouth and pray. Years ago, during a seminar we were holding in the early days of RHEMA Bible Training Center, a woman came over to speak to me as I walked off the platform at the end of the service. She was a denominational lady who’d just recently been filled with the Holy Spirit. She said, “You know, Brother Hagin, since I found out Romans 8:26 and 27 says that the Holy Ghost does my praying for me, I don’t pray much anymore. Like this woman, some folks try to build a doctrine on this one isolated text in Romans 8 and make it say something it doesn’t say. “Well, if the Holy Ghost is praying for me,” they say, “He knows how to get the job done, so there is no use for me to pray.

But you can readily see that this statement is unscriptural because the Bible constantly exhorts us to pray. Second, Romans 8:26 is not saying that the Holy Ghost does our praying for us. He helps us pray out in groanings according to the perfect will of God.

26 “LIKEWISE THE SPIRIT ALSO HELPETH OUR INFIRMITIES: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself [Himself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

Paul starts off by saying that the Holy Spirit helps us to pray. Then Paul shows one way the Holy Ghost helps us—in groanings!

The Spirit of God will alert you to pray, but you must respond. He won’t make you do something. He won’t make you pray just like He won’t do your praying for you. That would make Him responsible for your prayer life, and He isn’t responsible—you are. He’s been sent to dwell in you as your Intercessor and your Helper in prayer. Now it’s up to you to cooperate with Him and do the praying!

Pastor Ray…

So, that’s our job. Right? That’s what we’ve been called to do. Sometimes I think we forget that praying is connecting to Him, it’s connecting to heaven. And we are listening, we’re opening ourselves up to what He’s having us to say, what to pray, when, how, for who.

Ms. Jeani…

Can I add something? So, you referenced Romans 26 and 27, and then what happens when we do that? Romans 28, the next verse, “we are assured and know that God being a partner in our labor, that all things work together and are fitting into a plan for good to and for those that love God and are called according to His design and purpose.” So that’s the result of our prayers.

Pastor Ray…

Do you ever remember praying so much for an installation for a judge to be put on the supreme court? Do you ever remember doing that? I don’t either. But these days are so critical because of what’s happened or tried to happen in our country to move it in the wrong way, move it in the way we don’t want it to move. And so I don’t want you to think “Wow, are we still praying for Judge Kavanaugh?” Well, we are praying for him. We’ve prayed Psalm 40 as his wife requested but you know I don’t even think he’s in his home right now. All hell has broken loose against him. But he is not going to be defeated. Because guess what? He is in victory and he will be voted in, period, exclamation point! We declare it and we believe it in Jesus’ name. All of the lies, all of the inaccuracies are being exposed every single day.

What really steams me is where we live, whoever owns our complex, has to be left of left. All they want to show is CNN on their screens. There are many, many, many big flat screens all throughout, wherever you go for the amenities. You go into the work out area, there are like 6–8 all tuned to CNN. However, there is a way to change it from that to something else. But there is one in the main lobby which we cannot change. The owner want’s it set to CNN. And every time I go in there, it just steams me to hear the lies. If they are not talking, then they are running across the bottom of the screen lies, inaccuracies, stupid things. But that’s being exposed and the Devil is backing that up but he’s overstepped his boundaries. There is no boundary that we are allowing him to come over anyway. We are not allowing him to come over this boundary or that boundary and we are going to stop him over here. He is stopped, we believe he is defeated, well, we know he is defeated based on what the Word says. He is a defeated foe. Hallelujah.


Thank You for the blood of Jesus this morning
I plead it over every single one of us as pray-ers
Protection by the blood, we are protected through the power of the precious blood of Jesus
Our families are protected by the blood of Jesus Christ; our churches are protected by the blood of Jesus
Our pastors they are covered in the blood of Jesus
No weapon, no attack of the enemy, no sickness, no accidents, nothing can come against us
For we have overcome in and through and by the blood of the Lamb
Hallelujah! Thank You, Father

Ms. Annie led us singing Way Maker

Continued praying…

This morning, gathered here together we hold up before heaven all those that gave their lives to You this past weekend right here in this building under the ministry of Todd White
We pray over him, for the days and the weeks and the months that are to come
We pray for his steps, they are ordained from heaven, that he’s directed to do and to go and to flow and to grow, speak with wisdom from heaven
And we pray in advance for all of the souls that will come
But right now we are praying for those that did come! We lift them up!
You know the names, you know the hairs on their heads
Father, You know where they came from
Thank You for the boldness and the courage that they yielded to heaven
They yielded to the call that came forth under the anointing of the evangelist to stand up and take a stand for You
We plead the blood of Jesus over every single one of them
Three services where the front of the building is full, lives that were once going in a wrong direction.
I am just getting a picture of a few of those people that, you know even the little ones
Little ones that just came up on their own and gave their lives, Lord, to You
Those that came out of different walks of life, all of the younger ones, all of the older ones, all of the people, men, women, children, young adults
Father, we plead the blood of Jesus over them and declare that the seeds that were sown shall not be uprooted but shall take hold
And their lives shall move in a new direction
We pray over every single one of them in Jesus’ name
Pray for a refreshing by the Holy Spirit today
It’s been a few days since they made the declaration and prayed – we pray that they’ll stand strong, stay steadfast, be being filled, and step boldly out of the past and into the new
We know that by praying, by receiving You, they did step out
But then in their natural lives, that they would step out, step up, readjust where they are going and what they are doing and live for You, Lord
Oh, Father, thank You for the ministry of Your Holy Spirit
We have compassion for them, we trust in You that You’ll meet their needs

Let’s pray in the Holy Ghost over them (tongues)

Some slid back, they decided to slide back in
Strength, boldness, courage, help from heaven, direction, wisdom!
Thank You, Father
And, Father, we ask, continually requiring as a necessity and awakening, revival all across our country
We specifically lift up our own state, we go from the north to the south; from the east to the west
We pray for an awakening in Minnesota, an awakening, revived to Your will and to Your plan
We declare over this land, this is our land, this is where we live
We take responsibility for it and again this morning we direct our prayers toward the State of Minnesota and we declare we are moving ever more to the right way, to Your way, Father
We pray and declare hidden things will be brought to the light
Some have been exposed but others shall be – we shall move, there is a change but it’s not finished
Hallelujah! We hold up, pray in advance over the election again in November
We cover every aspect, declare every lie to be uncovered, revealed for what it was, what it is in Jesus’ name – hallelujah
It’s time, it’s time now for Minnesota to take a step ever more toward You toward Your will, toward Your ways in Jesus’ name
Oh, Father, thank You – we worship You this morning
Thank You, Lord

Father, we thank You for Judge Kavanaugh, we lift that situation again before heaven
We call Your blessings upon that family in Jesus’ name
Thank You, Father, for a strength from heaven to stand strong
We pray that the votes will be there to vote him right on in
As far as we are concerned, this week would be great! On time and in time, at the right time
Those that are on the verge, on the edge, could go one way or the other, we pray them on in to the right way in Jesus’ name
That this man would be set in there – hallelujah!
We plead the blood of Jesus

We pray over our president, all those in positions of authority as You called us to do
Not just asked us, but You actually commanded us to lift up and pray for those in positions of authority
We lift them up this morning, pray for wisdom for our leaders in Jesus’ name
Pray over the president, his family – cover them with the blood of Jesus
We pray over every pray-er that is praying in the White House
We come right up alongside of them – supernatural direction and strength to move and keep on speaking what Your Word says about our country
No weapon formed against our leaders shall prosper, we pray there will be some surprises coming up where some will vote out of their party over into the other one – in Jesus’ name because it’s the right thing to do!
Hallelujah! Miracles, signs, miraculous happenings, divine revelations
Some will be moved out and others will be moved in – hallelujah

A Word of the Lord came forth:

I just heard this in my spirit. There are people in this room that have been considering moving out of where they are living and moving into something new. But the Holy Spirit said, “The place where you are living is about to be turned around and become new.” I don’t know who that is for but it’s like this. You won’t have to move out physically because the Holy Spirit is moving in permanently. And there is about to be a taking over and there is about a removal of some sort of activity that’s tried to cause division and bring lack to the scene. But by the power of the Holy Spirit, as you yield to a greater degree, the momentum of the Spirit will begin to take over and bring about in your place of residence completely and total freedom and victory! Freedom and victory.

Hallelujah, it will seem like a new place. Even your furniture will look different. It’s a renewal. It’s a new startup. It’s a new day! Well today is a new day. We’ve never been here before. Look around and see for the Lord is good and His mercy is enduring forever! Hallelujah! Permanent change in Jesus’ name.

So much, so many things are at stake right now. It’s not too late but each one of us must take our que, must take our call, and do what individually we’ve been called unto to do. Take it as if, if we don’t do it, it will not come to pass – like that.

For we will not sit in the bleachers and watch these things go by. We will continually be a part of that that is happening on this earth and call and declare and command and believe and receive that plan and the purpose that God has for this country in Jesus’ name, hallelujah

Ms. Jeani…

Who shall bring charge against God’s elect when it is God who justifies. Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those in whom God has chosen? For if God is for us, who can be against us? Who can be our foe if God is on our side?

Father, there is no charge against God’s elect
We thank You that Your elect for this country is already justified, they are already justified
They are already justified – it’s already done
We are just enforcing what’s already done
We thank You right now that You say who shall come forward and accuse and impeach those in whom God has chosen?
And we say no to every accusation, to any thought of impeachment right now against those in whom God has chosen
And we declare “God is for you, God is for you!”
Let hope rise up within you even right now
We speak over you today, hope rises up within you right now
A deep revelation that God is for you, and if God is for you, nothing can be against you
In the courtroom, in the supreme court, in the oval office, in the governments – God’s elect
They run like they have never run before – every hindrance completely and fully crushed and taken care of, freedom like they have never experienced before because God is for you
He is for you – everything you put your hands to prospers
We declare that today over God’s elect in America, over God’s elect in America
Everything, absolutely everything you put your hand to, His blessing is on it
It’s making the way, we declare supernatural ease, help in time of need, the right words at the right time
A stranger’s voice you do not hear
And we thank You for it now, we thank You for it already
We thank You for it today! Today! Let hope rise up in the body of Christ!
She will not except delay! We call forth the confirmation by the Holy Spirit today!
Father, You said that You are for us! You said that Your elect cannot be accused or impeached
And we take You at Your Word, We take You at Your Word that all these things are working together for their good because they have been called according to Your purposes
The gates of hell do not prevail against Your plan!
Today, today, today, today, today, today

Pastor Ray…

When? Today. What’s that – right now
Now is the time, we are the people, this is the country

Ms. Jeani…

Strengthen your feeble knees for the time is short
Strength, strength, strength, the time is short and the time is now
And you rise up with great strength, the strength of Holy Spirit in you
The strength of being called by God
Rise up! Rise up!
You are strong, you are mighty, you are courageous in the face of your accuser
Because you are blessed, you are blessed
The blessing goes before you and it causes the enemy to fall right before your eyes
The blessing causes the enemy to scatter before you seven ways
Trump, Kavanaugh, all those that surround you – the enemy is scattering before you even now seven ways you witness the reward of the wicked – today, today, today!
Father, we thank You for the blessing on their lives
We thank You that they are your elect, we thank You that You belong to them
We just thank You for the opportunity to enforce Your promises in their lives!
We are called today, to call today forth
This is not a religious exercise, it is today, your way, your way today!

Ms. Annie led us out singing It Is Well With MY Soul

Scripture focus…

(1) God, you’re such a safe and powerful place to find refuge! You’re a proven help in time of trouble—more than enough and always available whenever I need you.
(2) So we will never fear even if every structure of support were to crumble away. We will not fear even when the earth quakes and shakes, moving mountains and casting them into the sea.
(3) For the raging roar of stormy winds and crashing waves cannot erode our faith in you. Pause in his presence
(4) God has a constantly flowing river whose sparkling streams bring joy and delight to his people. His river flows right through the city of God Most High, into his holy dwelling places.
(5) God is in the midst of his city, secure and never shaken. At daybreak his help will be seen with the appearing of the dawn.
(6) When the nations are in uproar with their tottering kingdoms God simply raises his voice and the earth begins to disintegrate before him.
(7) Here he comes! The Commander! The mighty Lord of Angel Armies is on our side. The God of Jacob fights for us! Pause in his presence
(8–9) Everyone look! Come and see the breathtaking wonders of our God. For he brings both ruin and revival. He’s the one who makes conflicts end throughout the earth, breaking and burning every weapon of war.
(10) Surrender your anxiety! Be silent and stop your striving and you will see that I am God. I am the God above all the nations, and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth.
(11) Here he stands! The Commander! The mighty Lord of Angel Armies is on our side! The God of Jacob fights for us! Pause in his presence Psalm 46 (TPT)

What do we do? We continue
We just keep moving in God’s way
Thank you for coming this morning
And if you can, we will be back here in the morning
