Prayer Summary for Friday, February 10, 2017

Ms. Barb shared…

I woke up the other day and I got these four words “I am happy. I am healthy. I am strong. I am wealthy.” And the Holy Spirit said you keep that on your lips. You keep speaking that because it will cause your natural man to keep coming back into alignment with the Spirit. Just keep those words on your lips. “I am happy. I am healthy. I am strong. I am wealthy.” And when I started saying those words, I started feeling happier because the Holy Spirit takes hold together with you when you begin to confess the truth. “I am strong. I am strong! And I am wealthy” And the anointing would just hit on it and I would speak it over and over and over. But it’s just to keep your natural man, your mind in line with the Spirit, with the truth because we need to be reminded. What does the scripture say, we look into the Word but we turn away and we forget. Right? So our confession of our mouth brings us back to that mirror, to that reflection that says this is the truth. Speak this. Keep this on your lips.

I mentioned there were some meetings in Sarasota with Brother Keith Moore this week. I hadn’t heard him tell this story before but maybe you have. He was using the scripture “at destruction and famine” what do we do we do? We laugh. He said he was doing healing school on a Monday morning and when he came in he could just feel death in the room. Everyone in the room had been given a hopeless report. Some people said they had ten days left to live and some were hooked up on different things you know. A scripture came to him and he started laughing. He could see the people. They were like, I thought this was healing school?  What are you laughing about? So he preached to them a while about the strength that comes from joy. He said after a while the people came up in the front. They would tell him what conditions they had and that the doctor had given them “x” amount of days to live and everyone in the place would start laughing. That is a different kind of a healing school.

He said at first it took them a while to get it. Then the people that would come up to the front, when they said what the doctor’s had said, they would start the laughter and they would start laughing like crazy. He said he could see on their whole persona that everything had changed and it changed in the room.

He didn’t go on a lot further with that but it reminded me of one time here at Living Word. It was in this building. I can’t remember what the thing was but it was an attack from the enemy on this church. My office is back behind here and so there is a door that goes out to the walkway. I was going somewhere and I opened that door and Pastor Mac was just standing out there in the walkway by a bench. And he told me what it was and then he said “You know the Devil is so absolutely crazy. There are times that all we can do and should do is laugh.” So he just began to laugh. He did what the scripture said, begin to laugh. Because there was nothing else to do but just laugh about it, laugh it off.

Ms. Jerre shared…

There is something else that you could do—cry. But what’s better? Laughter (ha, ha, ha). What’s faith-filled? Laughter. Amen.

Pastor Ray shared…

So when I heard those words that Ms. Barb had I got to health and I looked up what it meant online. It means happiness, joy, and those kinds of things and then on my screen these scriptures came up about laughter. So I thought I would just go through them.

Scripture focus…

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. Proverbs 17:22 (KJV)

You can tell people’s persona and what they look like if their bones are drying up because of brokenness, some kind of trauma like Pastor Mac prayed for last Sunday.

For people in the nursing home with dementia, music is never totally lost from them. So if you can get someone in there playing piano or guitar it’s a good thing. One of the times I visited my mother-in-law at the nursing home there was a lady that had been an Assembly of God pastor’s wife. She had played piano in the church and had a book of music, all hymns, all praises and she sat in the lobby and it echoed throughout the whole place. It wasn’t a Christian place but it became one. I like that. Even if people are suffering with forgetting they still have music if they can just get them over. They did that with my mother-in-law. She couldn’t even remember that she could sing until she heard it like that.

Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing. Job 8:21 (KJV)

Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. Psalm 126:2 (KJV)

Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. Luke 6:21 (KJV)

Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. James 5:17 (KJV)

All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. Proverbs 15:15 (KJV)

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision. Psalm 2:4 (KJV)

Pastor Ray shared…

One thing when Brother Keith was talking about that scripture in Job. He said have you ever noticed when you go into a funeral home it’s like you just want to jump up and shout because it’s so down. And I understand that because many people have no clue where their loved one went. They just know they are gone. Thank God that we know where we are going and where those that are connected with us have gone to. And they are up looking over the banister encouraging us in our spiritual walk. Hallelujah.

Brother Dave Shared…

The Bible says the joy of the Lord is what? our strength. Everybody knows that the Joy of the Lord is our strength. The Bible also says that in His presence is fullness of joy. So, if in His presence is fullness of joy, you could say that in His presence is fullness of strength. You can also say that the joy leads us into His presence. As we enter into the joy. We enter into that place by faith. You don’t have to feel like anything. As a matter of fact you can feel lousy. If you have ever had an experience where you have felt lousy… has anybody ever felt that way? (ha, ha, ha). So, if you have ever felt that way and everybody here has, I know that so you don’t have to raise your hands, there is a doorway to victory from that place.

You qualify. You qualify to go through this door and this door is afforded to you but you have to walk through that door. Now your flesh will kick and scream to go through that door because the flesh wants to understand. It wants to feel. It wants to think about what to do. It wants to feel what is going on. It wants to be in control. It wants to know the outcome. Your flesh wants to in your mind be certain of the outcome. Your mind wants that. Your spirit doesn’t need that. Your spirit is who you really are not your mind. Your mind is not who you really are. You need to allow your mind to get in agreement with your spirit and that will allow you entrance through this door.

That’s why when the Lord leads you to do something, sometimes like sing or whatever, you start out singing in the natural but your spirit gets that, it picks up on that doorway. It picks up that there is an entry way there. But your mind doesn’t want to go along with it. So what you have to do is learn how to get this out of gear and learn how to allow your spirit to ascend. And when you let your spirit ascend, all of a sudden your shout gets louder. You get more excited. All of a sudden you stop thinking about your problem and you start getting in agreement with what the Spirit of grace is telling you. And the Spirit of grace, and this is a prophetic word for you right now, the Spirit of grace is going to speak to your heart and tell you how good it is. He is going to tell the things that are just, that are praiseworthy, if there be any virtue, He is going to speak those things. And He is going to hook with your spirit, you and Him, your spirit and His Spirit, and He’s going to allow you to enter into that place. And pretty soon your mind is no longer going to be thinking on those things anymore. And when you are not thinking about those things anymore, it is easy to have joy because the things that you are thinking about are things that are in your spirit, that everything is going to be alright and everything is going to work out fine.

Let me ask you a question here. Now, I am saying this because I have gone through this so many times where I felt like, even last week, I felt this funk on me. Now we started singing. I don’t know what we were doing but 10 minutes into it I started getting joy in my spirit. By the time I left here I couldn’t think about the issue I was thinking about before I came. When I came in here I had my mind on something. I had gotten a bit of bad news. By the time I left here, I wasn’t thinking about that any longer and joy was present and I was excited about the future.

Well what was I excited about? I was excited about what the Holy Spirit put in my spirit. And that was this, “I got you and everything is going to be okay.” That’s what He was telling me. I got you and everything is going to be fine. Well if God was before you, if He appeared to you in bodily form and put His hand on your shoulder and looked into your eyes and told you “I’ve got this. Everything is going to be fine.” I don’t know about you but that can make me excited. That would get me excited! So, all you have to do is yield to your spirit rather than your mind. Your mind will keep you from victory but your spirit will take you over the top and it will get you in agreement with what is the truth. And that is this, that He bore your sicknesses and He carried your diseases and He provided all sufficiency in all things for you, all things, everything.

So, if you got that in your mind now and you’re thinking that, the spirit is receiving that and all of a sudden your mind is thinking “Yea, I could see that.” And all of a sudden you start getting up, getting up. And you are going to live from on top rather on the bottom. So, how many want to live on the top? Glory to God! He is alive and well and He still preforms miracles today. He is on the job right now. He’s perfecting that which concerns you. His word is out there working on your behalf.

It doesn’t matter what the enemy says. It matters what God says. And that is what’s going to change it and all you have to do is get in agreement with Him. And how you get in agreement with Him? Tune out with your head and tune in with your spirit, let your spirit ascend and your mind will get in agreement. That’s right. It will quicken your mortal body.

Brother Dave went on to recount the testimony he gave February 3, 2017

Ms. Jerre shared…

I think it is so awesome that Jesus loves the people who pray so much that we get to hear this kind of stuff. I am just really thankful right now. He knows we have a job to do and it’s an important job. In fact, I don’t think we will ever really know the importance of it until we get to heaven and He’ll lay it out there for us, written on the big computer in the sky. And He’ll say “Did you realize you did this?” No, I was just there at prayer, Friday, praying in the Holy Ghost doing whatever You wanted me to do.

So He gives us extra, above and beyond what we could ask or think to keep us strong, to keep us declaring, to keep us on fire, to keep us healthy, to keep us in that prayer place that we can be the sons and daughters of God in dominion and to change things on this earth. You know over the years when we pray “To the right, to the right, to the right…” You know there are times when I left prayer when I thought how long are we going to pray this? And now seeing things that are manifesting, if we would have quit, or if we would have been discouraged and not come back, I don’t think we would see what we see today.

But just that thankfulness of Him giving us gifts and pulling things out of people. I just want to thank You, Father, for testimonies. You know when the Bible says a worker of miracles, I think that gift is in you Dave. I think that is one of your giftings. And so when you minister from that place… and that’s why the Devil is so mad at you.


Right now in agreement we plead the blood of Jesus
Over every assignment of the Devil against those who pray
No weapon formed against them will prosper
And every tongue that rises against them
Father, You will condemn in Jesus’ mighty name
Devil your assignment is broken from this day forward
Increase, yes I heard that
Increase, increase in all areas, Father, for those that pray in Jesus’ name
In the realm of the spirit
In the natural realm too
Above what we could ask or think
You make Your face to shine upon those who yield to You
Thank You for it Father!
Your great mercy – victory in all areas
Manifested victory in Jesus’ name
Hallelujah! I love the Holy Ghost!
You know you couldn’t get this good by planning it out two weeks in advance and writing it all down
You just couldn’t! (ha, ha, ha)

This is what I heard. I heard get up and sing! Get up and shout! Get up and dance! Get up and praise! Get up! Get up! Get up!

Ms. Jerre led us in singing, dancing, and rejoicing…

♪ At destruction and famine we will laugh, we will laugh
At destruction and famine we will laugh, we will laugh
Ha, ha, ha, ha… Ha, ha, ha, ha
At destruction and famine we will laugh, we will laugh… ♪


Yes, we walk in the Spirit
We don’t leave this place behind
Just because we leave the prayer room doesn’t mean we leave this place behind
So walk in the Spirit, hallelujah
