Prayer Summary for Friday, August 26, 2016

Pastor Ray led group in confession…

Say this after me:

I’m a new creature in Christ Jesus
Yes I am!
I was born into God’s royal family
I’m a son of God
God has created me now
He has put new life into me
I’ve been born from above
Born of the Spirit
Everything that God creates is good
I will not run down my life
Because my life is in Christ
He made me
I am what He has made me to be
A new creature
I will not belittle myself for I am in Christ
And in Christ, I have been granted new life
The old life is gone… I said the old life is gone!
I’m a new creation in Christ
Created by God
His own workmanship
God is now working within me
Both to will and do of His good pleasure
What is God doing within me?
He’s building me up
Making me strong in faith by His Word
I am the righteousness of God in Christ
2nd Corinthians 5:21 tells me I am now righteous in Christ
Not only a new creature in Christ
But righteous in Christ
God has made me righteous with His own righteousness
I stand before Him with no sense of unworthiness
I’m free. I reign with Him in life
Yes, I’m redeemed!
I’m no longer in bondage to Satan
Sin was my master
Through the blood of Jesus, I’ve been delivered
I say it boldly
Goodbye sickness… goodbye fear… goodbye lack… goodbye weakness… I am free!
Now I live in a new kingdom
The heavenly kingdom where there is life
Light, liberty, joy, peace, health, assurance, blessing and power
What a redemption is mine!
What a redeemer I have
I’m an heir of God
And a joint heir with Christ Jesus
To be saved is not a light thing
I’ve received a rich inheritance
I’m blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ Jesus
My Father loves me as He loved the Lord Jesus
My own wonderful Father is greater than all
He loves me with an everlasting love
Yes I am blessed with heaven’s best
I have the life of God
It’s in my mortal body right now
Not just when I get to heaven… but now!
My spirit has been quickened and is made alive
Now I live and move and have my being in Christ
I have what God says I have
I can do what God says I can do
I am what God says I am
I affirm that the above facts are settled in heaven
And they’re now settled in my heart
I shall often speak them boldly and possess my possessions in Christ

Last night, brother Copeland went over that again about it’s not just reading the Word. It’s hearing the Word. So when we pray over our ears, we’re praying to hear what He’s saying. Receive it and walk in faith to carry it out.


Thank You, Holy Spirit. Thank You for Your presence. Thank You for the anointing that is resident within each one of us, enabling us and equipping us to do what you’ve called us to do. We don’t have to question or wonder. We just have to listen and do what you tell us to do. Thank You! The way is straight by the blood. The path is clear under the blood. And we overcome in and through that precious blood.

Jerre led in worship…

Pastor Ray shared…

I heard, “The money is on the way.” I heard it clearly. The money is on the way. It’s either on the way to someone in here or it’s on the way to someone out over GPAN or it’s on the way because we declare it today—THE MONEY IS ON THE WAY! No devil can stop it. No man can derail it. The postman knows your address. God knows how to get it to you! The money is on the way. So if you’re looking for it, what do you say? “The money is on the way!” It could be money you didn’t know you needed, but it’ll be there. Thank You for the provision that’s already been made. For the battle that was already won. For the finances that have already provided for the plan and purpose of God.

Jerre continued…

I’ve had this song in my heart for about 3 or 4 days. It’s an old one.

♪ I am blessed… I am blessed… every day of my life I am blessed… When I wake up in the morning and when I lay my head to rest, I am blessed… I am blessed… ♪

Today the Holy Spirit told me something while I was praying in the spirit. He knows where we’re at. He can just pinpoint right where we’re at. He said, “Can you pray a happy tongue?” I went “Ohhh…” It’s easy to take cares. It’s easy to be on a lower plane just from looking around at circumstances. But when the Holy Ghost comes in and reads your mail, it’s for a good purpose. To bring you up. So I went from [praying in tongues in sad tone] to [praying in happy tone].

Then He said something about stirring up the gift that’s within us. But does the Holy Ghost pray in care? Does He pray under? No. Now I realize there are times that we need to hit the Devil. But if we stay there all the time, we’re in trouble. We are to be led by the Spirit of God. And that’s what we endeavor to do here, so when He said, “happy tongues” I just figured I was taking cares. I needed to go to a different place. Happy offerings. Happy tongues. Above. High above every principality and power of darkness.

Dave shared…

For those of you that don’t know, I had a car accident two months ago. It was a pretty severe car accident. The Lord delivers us from it all. Last week, I had a pretty rough week. I thank God for the brothers and sisters that prayed for me. I saw Jerre on Sunday night and she said she had been praying for me. I appreciate that. But to pick up to where she is talking about. The Lord gave me a scripture a moment ago. In Romans 8, it says that He that spared not His own Son but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things. All things. He said, “How shall He not freely give us all things?” He’s saying, if I didn’t withhold the thing that is the most precious, His Son, what is there left? If He’s going to withhold something, it would be the thing that is the most precious to Him, right? That’s what we would do. But He didn’t even withhold that. So that tells you how much He loves us. So how would He not freely give us all things?

A week ago, I had a relapse in some of the things that I was dealing with in my body. It really knocked me on my back. Because I had trusted the Lord in this area for feeling in my body. I had given it to Him but then these symptoms started coming into my body and it was like an attack and I was weak. I didn’t know what to do. But the Lord said “I didn’t save your life in this accident so that you could suffer.” If you think about that, why would the Lord give Jesus… why would He do something that the most miraculous thing that He could ever do so that you could have problems and live in a world of defeat? He didn’t do it for that reason. He did it so you could have life, more everlasting. He did it so you could have the victory and get up in the morning and know “today is my day!” I don’t have to deal with the junk that I dealt with yesterday because the Lord is Lord today over my life and body and finances.

But when you’re in that place, sometimes you feel like you don’t want to get up. I know this. We face challenges and difficulties and things in life and that’s what the body of Christ is for, to help us. Lock shields with us and pick us up and pray for us. When you’re weak, He’s strong and His strength is made perfect in your weakness. So if you have a weakness, He’s got strength.

So I’m in prayer about this and He said to me, “I didn’t save your life so that you could be miserable.” When He said that, this is what came to me. I don’t have to feel like this. Whooo! That will get you excited. I don’t have to feel like this… live like this. I get a choice.

Do you remember when Paul the apostle in the scriptures said “I don’t know whether to stay or to go.” He said to stay with you is this but to go is great also. What he was saying is “I’ve got a choice to be filled with victory or to be down in this place.” You’ve got a choice! I have a choice! When you’ve got a choice and the choice is either bad or good, which one are you going to pick? Good every time! So if He came to you in your time of prayer and said, “I know how you’re feeling. I’m touched by what you’re dealing with.” But then He puts His arm around you and says, “But we don’t have to stay in this place, because I did what I did.”

This is basic Gospel 101. When you’re weak, you need the Holy Ghost to speak into your life to get your strong. You are not superman. But I know somebody who is. The Holy Ghost! The way He told me this was not like feeling sorry for me. He said it with this tone. “I didn’t do this for you so that you could be miserable.” He was basically telling me “You know better. We’ve gone through this; we’ve done this before and guess what? We can do it again.” This is what life is about. Life is about overcoming every single day. If you think you’ve overcome today and then tomorrow you’re not going to have to overcome, that’s not the way life is. You’re going to overcome today and tomorrow you’re going to need to overcome and the next day. But there’s enough grace for it all.

Let me finish this. It goes on, “How would he not freely give you all things. Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect?” Who should lay anything to your charge? Who could make you pay the bill of redemption? Who could say that “You know what? You don’t qualify because of this,” or “you don’t qualify because of that…” “That does not cover. So just go thru this and get on the prayer chain and do what you need to do and we’ll just work through it.” Who can do that? No one!

That’s not the way Jesus sees it. He sees it as absolute and done. When He said it was done, it was done! Now this isn’t something I’m telling you that I read in a book and I went to school for and I’m telling this message. This happened last week! This is something you could go through every day. But I’m here today to tell you that He didn’t save you for misery. He didn’t save you so that you could be down in the dumps. He didn’t save you so that you could think about that thing all day long and that it can torment you. He didn’t save you for that. He saved you so that you could cast a care on Him. “I’m done with this. Here it is. I don’t have to think about it anymore.”

“Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” This is the part that I want to emphasize. “…shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

So when that thing is speaking in your ear and you’ve been hit for the “nth” time and you’re on your back and you feel like “I can’t get a handle on this” and start getting desperate, weary… that’s when the Holy Ghost comes in and that’s what He’s doing now. He’s trying to get you to understand that you don’t need to live this way. You have a choice like Paul; He said I have a choice. I could live here or go on. You must catch a revelation that “I’ve got a choice…”

What is Paul talking about? When sickness comes tapping on your door, do you have a choice? We do get a choice. And most people don’t recognize that. They just go into it and say, “Yeah, I guess I didn’t pay that bill so I’m going to get this… or this is going to happen…” That’s not the way God thinks. So you will live and not die. When I say live I mean the God kind of life. Joy unspeakable and full of glory. Victory! That is what Jesus died for. That is the purpose of salvation. So that we have life and more abundantly.

Brother Ray said he got a word from the Lord, “the money is coming.” Hold on to that! Don’t hold onto “the bill is coming.” Put your faith on the thing the Holy Spirit is telling you, not the things in the natural. When the Holy Spirit will come right there in your chair and say, “Concerning that thing, this is what I say… Now you have the choice to believe that which He tells you or to believe the natural thing around you.” Please, for the love of God, take the easy way. We’re all tempted to take the other way. I know. However, we have a choice.

In my spirit, the Holy Ghost is telling me it is this connection, it is this time with Him, it is that communion with the Father that allows you to trust that word when it comes. It is that communion with the Father that makes the connection. It’s not just you reading the Word and reading something off the page that connects you to God. It’s the Holy Spirit that does that. The Holy Spirit was sent to us by the Father for the direct purpose of connecting you to Him. And it’s His job to speak into your life to get you from where you’re at to where He wants you to be. So the Word came to me this morning saying this, “take the easy way.”

I’m standing here before you because I chose to take the easy way. I could be in the bed with drugs. I don’t have to be in that place. Somebody said to Barb the other day, “He looks okay to me.” Yeah, I do! Glory to God!

Jerre sang…

♪ Spring up O well within my soul, spring up a well, you’ve made me whole. Spring up o well and give to me, that joy abundantly… ♪

Dave gave word of the Lord…

When I throw the lifeline to you, take hold of the lifeline. And stay connected with that lifeline because I’ll continually speak to you concerning those things. And as I speak to you, hold fast to those things. And I will bring to your remembrance the scripture and word that I’ve spoken where you are free. You are free, indeed. And when you hear My voice, it’s like taking My hand and walking down the path of righteousness. That path where I lead you and deliver you and save you and heal you, provide for you and everlasting life to you… So take hold of my hand and make that connection. It’s not putting all those scriptures on the walls and doing all these things that’s going to cause you to come into that victory. What’s going to cause you to come into that victory is hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit and doing what He tells you to do. Because He may give you just one scripture, but that’s the one you need. And that’s the one that will heal and deliver and set you free. So focus your attention not on the natural things. Focus your attention on the things when I lead. Sometimes it’s not as loud as the natural things that are around you. Sometimes it’s the whisper in your spirit that says “yeah, that’s not the way.” Then He’ll speak to you in the still small voice. So shut down those natural things. When they come knocking, cast those things aside. Look unto Me and I’ll meet the need. But it’s in this connection is where I’ll do that. It is in this time and place of intimacy. It is in this place of prayer that I’ll drop that rhema word inside of you. And it’ll set you on fire! It’ll get you excited. It’ll cause you to do things you haven’t done before. It’ll get you excited to where you’re no longer thinking of yourself, but you’re thinking of Me and your focus is on Me. So take My hand and walk with Me.

Joy, joy, joy, joy unspeakable and full of glory. Full of My power, full of My provision, full of faith, full of happiness, full of joy… joy, joy, joy, joy! Ha, ha, ha ha! No more fear! Joy for victory. Joy cuz you know that you know that I have done all that I said I would do! Joy, joy, joy, joy! A “glory to God joy” where you’re glorifying God! And you are beaming with His power and His glory! It pushes out the darkness! Joy, joy, joy, joy! So get excited about what I say instead of what he says. Get excited!

Group began to laugh…

Barb gave forth word…

You might think that, that’s a little bit excessive. Well, it’s time for excess! It’s time for the excessive. It’s time for excess… finances… that He meets your need excessively… He’s superabundantly supplies your need… More than enough… He’s not a “just meet the need,” He’s an “over and above, over the top, filling it up to overflowing” God… It’s the time of excess… It’s the time of success… It’s the time of victory in Jesus today. Today is the day of salvation. Today is the day of shalom, of perfect peace in Jesus’ name… Every opportunity walking on the water… Getting out of the boat and moving out… Taking steps into the excess, into the abundance… ? away the God things… A superabundant supply… Blessings, blessings are flowing… Cooperate… Cooperate… He’s shaking you loose… Let that river flow… From the throne of God… To your family, flowing in a mighty way… Drawing those kids up to you… More and more and more and more… Way out into the deep… That door, that door… open, open…

Pastor Ray gave word for Dave…

I’ve been hearing this. The things that happen to you and the things that you went through in the time that you’d say, “I lost this time, I lost that time, I couldn’t go here, I couldn’t go there,” all those things have been restored. It was like a change of old clothes into the new. And those things that you seemingly missed have been restored and when you set yourself out on the field, so to speak, you’ll see yourself operating in a place you’ve never operated in before because you have had revelation for yourself and walked out what you heard by the Spirit what He said unto you. I did not bring you out of that truck or that crash to have you walk around or not walk around or lay down or whatever. But you came out to come up! He didn’t put you in there, but He took you out of there to set you up on a place that’s higher in your race than you’ve ever been in before. So when Pastor Paul started to move your legs was an indication, a revelation, a sign about the steps that have been preordained that you shall walk out. But you will not walk them out in the way that you would have walked them out because this is a new day. And now is the time and this is the hour that that same resurrection power that raised Jesus up out of the grave will operate through you. You shall see it. You shall know it and you shall walk in it, saith the Lord. That’s total, complete restoration.
