Prayer Summary for January 21


The following excerpt was taken from Rees Howells, Intercessor by Norman Grubb:

“He did not come like a rushing mighty wind. But gradually the person of the Holy Ghost filled all our thoughts, His presence filled all the place, and His light seemed to penetrate all the hidden recesses of our hearts. He was speaking through the Director in every meeting, but it was in the quiet of our own rooms that He revealed Himself to many of us.

“We felt the Holy Spirit had been a real Person to us before; as far as we knew we had received Him; and some of us had known much of His operations in and through our lives. But now the revelation of His Person was so tremendous that all our previous experiences seemed as nothing. There was no visible apparition, but He made Himself so real to our spiritual eyes that it was a ‘face to face’ experience. And when we saw Him we knew we had never really seen Him before. We said like Job, ‘I have heard of Thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth Thee’: and like him, we cried, ‘Wherefore I abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes.’

“We read the Acts afresh and found we were reading, not the acts of the apostles, but the acts of the Holy Ghost. The bodies of Peter and the others had become His temples. The Holy Ghost as a divine Person lived in the bodies of the apostles even as the Savior had lived His earthly life in the body that was born in Bethlehem. And all that the Holy Spirit asked of us was our wills and our bodies.

” ‘I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice … ‘ (Rom. 12:1). It seemed as though we had never seen that Scripture before. He made it clear that He was not asking for service, but for a sacrifice. ‘Our God is a consuming fire’; and if God the Holy Ghost took possession of these bodies, then His life was going to consume all that there was of ours.

“We had often sung ‘I want to be like Jesus,’ but when we had the offer from a Person who is just like the Savior to come and live that life daily and hourly in us, we found how unreal we had been. How much there was in us that still wanted to live our own lives-that shrank from this ‘sentence of death’! We now began to see the meaning of the Savior’s words in Luke 9:24, ‘For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for My sake, the same shall save it.’

“Why had He manifested Himself to us in this way? He made that quite clear. It was because there was a work to be done in the world today that only He could do (John 16:8). No wonder the Master told His disciples not to move from Jerusalem until they had received ‘the promise of the Father.’ But when He had come, they would be His witnesses ‘in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.’”

I felt that way myself years ago in a service in Canada. As I was coming forward to receive prayer, I had an open vision of the cross coming toward me. When He touched me through a vessel that laid hands on me, it was exactly as he said. I thought I knew Him but in an instant through a touch I received Him new. Like Reese Howells said that we need to be so saturated by Him because there is a work to be done in this day. “You set it up that we would pray and gave us the Holy Spirit. We take an increase today to speak the things that You would have us to do and run our race individually and corporately.” Many times we are not yielding to Him the way we should and we are thinking we have all that we need today but we don’t.


We yield to You today, Holy Spirit, for a fresh touch
Let Your will be done in us
We lift healing for 911 situations—by His stripes, they are healed in Jesus’ name
Progress may have been made BUT there is MORE—100% healing
Declaring “Be well. Be normal” in Jesus’ name
For Your plans to be walked out, healing is necessary
Renewed and made whole in every way by the power of the Holy Spirit TODAY
Thank You, Father, for eyes to see Your plan laid out, to walk it out
Pushing out the boundaries even further, increase in every way
Marked Change—right in time and right on time
Jesus be Jesus in and through us
Being aware of the adjustments that must be made as we go
We take courage knowing that it is Your work—You reveal things we don’t know how to do
Every step You have preplanned for us to take!
There is a way and there is a plan—we take it
Speaking out Your details, ways, purposes, and ideas in Jesus’ name
Pressing into more of You and less of us
Thank You, Father, for ways and openings that only you can make
Calling on all the resources and plans for today
Declaring that we are co-laborers together—the Church

When the power of the Holy Spirit began to move in Azusa, William Seymour ministered with a crate on his head and it seems like such a weird situation. But it’s like I could see that he didn’t want to see hindrances, doubt, questions, all kinds of things that were going on around in the meetings that he was in. He put that crate upon his head to see You. To speak to You. To do You. To do what You were saying. To be faithful to do what he saw You to do just like Jesus did by the Spirit what the Father told him to do, showed Him to do. He listened to what the Father said by the Spirit, in the Spirit—same thing today.

For us to succeed we must see Him—must see You. See what You are saying. To be able to say “I see what You are saying, Lord. I see what You’re doing, Father, and we’ll do it because You said to do it.” Not question whether or not it will work. Just by faith receiving it and declaring it and expect to walk in!

Continued Praying…

Laying it at the feet of Jesus—commanding the new to unfold
Preparing the way of the future of the Church
NO DECEIT or DECEPTION to operate in the Church
Walking in faith—step by step
More and more in a progressive way—knowing of the power
Spirit of Seeing and Knowing—absolute turnarounds in a way we have not seen before
Limitations be removed—the Church is moving up and out into the new
Places we have not seen before
Internal joy needed to recognize, receive, and take these steps!
Walk by the Spirit with the Spirit of faith from above—going beyond into uncharted territories
Let the weak say “I am strong!” Let the poor say “I am rich!” Let the sick say “I am healthy!”
We are moving ahead and not going back!
Not blending in but STANDING OUT!
We are the salt—shaking things up and out wherever we go!
There is no other plan but the Spirit’s PLAN!
Meeting every need as we go

A Word of the Lord came forth:

For progress has come this way! Let go and let God work it out. Working out the steps. Working out the plans. Sooner than later—working out every day for there is a path to walk and we must walk in God’s way. Turn, turn, turning our face to the wind. Turning our feet to the fire, yielding to the power within. For the fire must burn for our eyes. We must see, and we must know. For the Holy Spirit, He knows that we know that You know how to go and when to go, the way to go, and how to flow—ha, ha, ha, ha!

Spiritual Song came forth….

It’s a fresh wind blowing from heaven. As the wind blows and you don’t know where it comes from or where it goes that’s how the Spirit flows. Blowing from heaven, like a wind blowing from heaven. Blowing right through the Church. Come and blow, Holy Spirit. I can see it. It’s like right on our backs and blowing us into the new. Blowing on me and blowing on You. Increase is blowing. Money is blowing in. Increase blowing right into the Church. Blowing all the cobb-webs away. Darkness is blowing out—all the bad thinking that would keep us in bondage. It’s a fresh wind blowing, a fresh wind blowing, a fresh wind blowing bringing restoration to you. Bringing healing to you. Blowing all the debris of sin, sickness, disease.

A Word of the Lord came forth:

Oh, so you say there is a new sickness come your way. The doctor has said there is no way, he has no plan. The Spirit of the living God will come through and BLOW it OUT in Jesus’ name!

Continued Singing…

Mighty strong powerful active winds of the Spirit blowing into our hearts, blow into our minds, blow into every situation and every part of us. So we ask You to blow, blow, blow, breath, breath, breath. Your breath alone will set us free. Holy, holy, holy Spirit come. Blowing Your healing. Blowing Your words of truth, blowing our fear away, blowing the darkness away, blowing deception away, every thought of defect is blown away by Your Spirit. So sweet are You, Lord. Holy Spirit, come, we yield to You. So thankful to You. We receive from You. It must be You.

Continued Paying…

Thank You, Father, for every internal wrinkle smoothed out—wrinkles of identity
Father, we see ourselves only how You see us
We expect increase more and more and thank You for it, Father
Thank You for this day for being alive and joyful and full of strength
We stand on Your Word going all the way through
Giving You all the praise and thanksgiving for making all things new in Jesus’ name
