Prayer Summary for Thursday, April 28, 2016

Erika shared…

This morning the song “Enlarge My Territory” was rolling in my heart. I’m just happy in Jesus singing, “enlarge my territory.” The Lord said, “No! Enlarge My territory.” Increase is good. So I began praying in the Spirit about enlarging His territory and He opened some things up to me and I believe it’s for this hour. Let’s pray.


We thank You for this time together. It is an honor and privilege to come together as the body of Christ in this place to join our hearts together through the precious blood of Jesus. We thank You, Father, that you saw fit that we would live in this day and hour. You knew everything about it and what we would be up against and what the world would look like but it’s never made You nervous. So we’re trusting You that You have called each one into the kingdom for such a times as this.

And, Father, Jesus prayed, “Make us one.” We believe His prayers are being answered and that by the power of the Holy Ghost, You are causing us to will and to do of Your good pleasure, that You who began a good work in us will see it to the day of completion, that there is much work going on in the body of Christ… in individuals members… in body part members… in groups of congregations all over the earth. There is much work being done. And we join our hearts and our faith with each part of our body today for increase, for enlargement in every conception that You had in Your mind, Father.

We’re not going to lean to our own understanding because You said you would do exceedingly above and beyond. Father, You’ve showed us in Your Word about enlargement, about increase, about things that You’ve called us to be and to do. But You said You would do beyond that. So our expectation is being enlarged today. That it would go beyond what we’ve already seen, known, and tasted. So we’re trusting You today that You would grant utterance in the Holy Ghost, and ears to hear, eyes to see, understanding and light to flood our hearts, that we would be not hearers only but doers doing Your Word, doing Your will and blessed in our deeds. We trust You for it, thank You for it. We count it as a privilege. Amen.

When the Holy Ghost was talking to me about “enlarge My territory,” He began to show me that, first of all, in order to do that, you have to know that there is more territory than you have. You’re not going to even want to enlarge if you didn’t know there was more to have. You have to know that He told you to take more territory. You didn’t just dream it up yourself. There are things written in the Bible that belong to us. But there are other things that you have to know that He said, “I want you to do this… I want you to go to that place… I want you to gain some territory there…”

You have to realize that someone is going to have to give up some territory. If you’re going to take it, somebody else is going to have to give it up. Maybe you don’t know the owner. Maybe you don’t know the situation behind it. It could be “you” that is going to have to give up some territory. If He says “I want you to increase,” what does that mean? It means in some areas, you better be letting go of some things, denying yourself.

When you take territory, sometimes it’s easy. You just go in and take the territory cuz God said to take it. You could go in without even a fight. But there could be situations where He said, “I want you to take that territory” and it’s not quite that easy because there is someone opposing you. And that’s the enemy of your soul. We do not fight against flesh and blood. We’re not fighting against people. We are fighting against an enemy who doesn’t want the will of God.

We have to keep that straight in our brains and we have to know the Word that says we do not wrestle against flesh and blood. What are you going to have to do? You’re going to have to be so fixed and focused on what He said to you. He said, “I want you to take that territory.” So if He said it, what does that mean? That means that with it comes everything you need in order to do the task.

It could be your family that you’re needing to take some territory. Maybe it’s a child. Maybe it’s a family member. There’s a myriad of circumstances there. But where are you going to fight the good fight? In the spirit. So even if there is a fight, if you know who you are, if you know what He has given you, what He has called you to do, you will have all that you need in order to do it.

Then you have to obey. When He speaks to you about that territory and you know it in your heart, you’ve seen it, you have the witness of the Holy Ghost, then you can’t just sit there and go, “Wow, that’s awesome.” You better hear from heaven and know the steps that you’re going to acquire that territory. Then you have to step out on the sure word of the Lord (whether it’s the written Word or something He said to your heart) and you obey.

Then you’re going to have to leave some old things. Leave the old way of thinking, the old way of doing. It could be good. Paul said I forget those things. He forgot everything. He forgot the good things God did. Forgetting those things which are behind, so you can stay connected to the now. You’re going to have to leave the old and cleave to the new.

Move out into the new because there are things that must be done now in this day and hour in the realm of prayer.  He tells you to do something, you go, “I just can’t do that.” Of course, it can’t happen without Him. It’s not in your strength. It’s not in your ability or capacity. You can be the most highly skilled, highly developed, most educated, the most organized, the greatest leader there ever was, and if the Lord tells you to do something and you do it in your own strength, what’s going to happen? The work of the flesh.

So we’re going to pray about enlarging territories today. We’re going to pray about all those facets that I talked about. When we’re praying we go into a new place, that means someone, demon powers, are going to have to relinquish some territory. That means then after that you’re going to see the hand of a man relinquishing some territories. We’re going to have to see revelation coming to the Church of the living God. More and more and more.

Out there are things that God has called us to do and we better be about the Master’s business. That means there is going to be some activity in the Church and increase in prayer power, an increase in financial giving, an increase in the effect of the Church in the community, an increase in the effect of the Church in the state and the nation… enlarge My territory. That’s His territory. This is not your United States. This is His United States. He founded it for His glory and for His honor. That means that something on the inside is going to have to rise up in the Church. There has to be “Bless God, He called us to this nation. He founded this nation and so for His glory and for His honor, we rise to that place.”

Isaiah 54:1–6,says, “Sing o barren, you have not born. Break forth into singing and cry aloud you who have not labored with child for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married woman, says the Lord.”

I like how the Message says it. “Sing barren woman, who has never had a baby. Fill the air with song you who have never experienced child birth. You’re ending up with far more children than all those child bearing women. God says so. Clear lots of ground for your tents. Make your tents large. Spread out, think big, use plenty of rope, drive the tent pegs deep. You’re going to need lots of available room for your growing family. You’re going to take over whole nations. You’re going to resettle abandoned cities. Don’t be afraid. You’re not going to be embarrassed. Don’t hold back. You’re not going to come up short. You’ll forget about all the humiliation of your youth and the indignities of being a widow will fade from your memory for your maker is your bridge groom. His name God of the angel armies, your redeemer is the holy of Israel. Known as God of the whole earth, you were like an abandoned wife, devastated in grief and God welcomed you back like a woman married young and then left, says your God. So forget about those things. Think big. Spread out. Use plenty of rope.”

In Samuel, there is a scripture about war. It was about a victory that was obtained. It was sustained and maintained and that enemy never rose up again. How would you like that in some areas of your life? To settle some issues. So I think it’s time the Church settled some issues. Individually, you’re going to have to do it in order to be effective to enter into those places of territory enlargement. So we’re going to do that today.

Jerre shared…

While you were talking, I wrote down some territories that we can use as examples. They may seem a little different or small but in actuality they’re big. She talked at the tail end of the territories of the people groups or nations and enlarging the territory and that’s ultimately what we’re looking for. But there are other territories that the Lord has shown me and today we have daily territories, daily situations that the Devil throws out there. That’s how we enlarge God’s territories—those daily circumstances and situations. That’s why we come and we come and we come. And it’s not to get weary but to know that we’re taking a territory that the Devil created at this specific time and day.

One territory was in children’s church. During a service, the Holy Ghost said, “I want you to take this place for the kingdom.” It was for the children. We asked, “How many of you have had a bad dream. The Devil comes in at night.” The hands went up everywhere. I said, “Let’s take this place for God and let’s demand that the Devil get out of our night season, our sleep.” That territory was apprehended that day for them. That’s a territory. When Erika said that, that came to my remembrance.

Then He said to me not too long ago. He said, “You must at this time enter into the celebration of your prayers.” That’s faith. Enter into the celebration of your prayers, meaning you have done this, now you grab hold and say, “Yes, it’s finished and done. Hallelujah!” He said, “You must take this territory also.”


Father, open that up, cause the seeing eye to see, the hearing ear to hear and understand
Father, we ask for internal strength to obey
We apply the sprinkling of the blood to obedience to pray and speak and move
Blocks of territories that must be gained in a new way
We repent that we have abdicated some territory that belongs to You, Father
We repent collectively and ask You to forgive us
We thank You for the cleansing blood, a clean slate today
We begin to seek and search out the new way
You are the ways and means for enlargement, Father
Individually and collectively
Churches with specific calls upon them, Father
Let there be an alignment of and by Your Spirit
Let us come into alignment with Your thinking
We lift that before Your throne of grace
Those called to those places, let them know by Your Spirit that call
You have a strategy, a divine plan… open it up and unfold it
That would be like a great orchestra and You are the director, Father
Responding to the Spirit, there is a greater response… enlargement
Fully operative… not missing anything
New clothes… new clothes from on high
The anointings of the Holy Spirit
Each one discerning and knowing their place and part
We call for the expansion of the Church of the living God
Expanding in every way

Jerre led group singing in the spirit and with understanding…

♪ Enlarge it, Lord, enlarge it, Lord… Enlarge that place, hallelujah… That place where we come, O Lord… That territory that we know not of… but we do come, we do come by Your Spirit, Lord… And we do yield to Your Spirit, Lord… And You will enlarge that place, even that place we know not of… Because Your Spirit promises when we know not what to pray, Your Spirit does and so we come… ♪

♪ The light, the light, the light be there… And in those dark places, O Lord… Let Your light shine there, let Your light shine there in all those dark places… ♪

Erika interjected…

Let’s pray about people that say, “Christians aren’t coming here. The Gospel is not coming here. There’s no room here for the Gospel. There’s not going to be missionaries here.” Let’s sing and pray in the spirit about those places now.

Jerre continued singing in the spirit and with the interpretation…

♪ Light be, light be, light be there… For You clear the way, You clear the way in the name of Jesus, the name above every name of darkness… Ha, ha!… ♪

Continued praying…

Enlargement in favor, enlargement in the ability to cooperate with the favor of God
Enlargement in the seeing and the seizing and opportunities that arise
Enlargement in our ability and capacity to negotiate the way and the pathway
Increase there, Father

Erika read scripture…

“Sing, barren woman, who has never had a baby. Fill the air with song, you who’ve never experienced childbirth! You’re ending up with far more children than all those childbearing women.” God says so! “Clear lots of ground for your tents! Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big! Use plenty of rope, drive the tent pegs deep. You’re going to need lots of elbow room for your growing family. You’re going to take over whole nations; you’re going to resettle abandoned cities. Don’t be afraid—you’re not going to be embarrassed. Don’t hold back—you’re not going to come up short. You’ll forget all about the humiliations of your youth, and the indignities of being a widow will fade from memory. For your Maker is your bridegroom, his name, God-of-the-Angel-Armies! Your Redeemer is The Holy of Israel, known as God of the whole earth. You were like an abandoned wife, devastated with grief, and God welcomed you back, Like a woman married young and then left,” says your God. (Isa. 54:1–6 Msg.)

Jerre shared…

I just saw this in my spirit when you shared that. I saw people going into heaven and their spiritual children swarming them, those that were birthed in the spirit swarming them, coming with such great gratitude. They are their children. Many, many children.

Erika continued…

We labor not in vain!
