Prayer Summary for Thursday, August 25, 2016

Jerre led in worship…

♪ There is power in the name of Jesus… You broke every chain… ♪

Jerre shared…

When we were singing this song one time, I heard the Holy Ghost say “Every chain has already been broken!”

Continued singing…

“Power in the name of Jesus… Every chain of bondage was broken there… You took it and You broke it, Lord…

Pastor Ray shared…

Jerre, let’s sing “I’m free.” We declare “I’m free.” When I looked outside this morning, it looked so beautiful in the natural. But it’s even more beautiful inside each one of us because every chain was broken back when He said, “It is finished.” That reminds me of a prophecy that Pastor Lynne gave in 1995. Part of it said, “It is finished and it’s ringing across the land.” I’m free!

Jerre continued singing about being free…

Pastor Ray…

We’re going all the way. We’re walking in a new day. This is a new day! We’re walking in the opportunities that have already been sent our way and the way Jerre said it, every chain has already been broken. The chains of deception have been broken. The chains of sickness have been annihilated! Broken. Removed. Gone. Chains of poverty. Gone. We’re free! And in that freedom as we declare it, we’re walking in victory. We’re the Church, the army of God. We’ve got somewhere to go. We’re free to walk in it. Free to speak and declare it. What freedom we have in Him! We’re free in every arena of our lives.

Group continues singing “I’m free…”

Pastor Ray shared…

Pundits say to the Church, “You’re not free. You’re not walking in victory. You’ll never walk in victory.” They’re full of negativity, lack, doubt. There are so many voices calling for the Church to sit down and shut up. “Sit down. Be still. Sit down, turn around, and go back to where you came from.” But No! No! No! No way! No how! For these are the days for the Church to step up and take its place of liberty and declare “This is the way it is and this is the way it will be. In Jesus’ name, I am free. I’m walking in victory. There’s no lack in me. There’s no sickness in me. There’s no turning around in me. There’s no sitting down in me. The only rest I take is the rest in You! And there is strength in that. Liberty.”

Ephesians 1:19 says “to usward who believe.” I’m a believer. [start quote] Few comprehend the primary thought of “belief.” It was a two-fold meaning fraught with deep significance. In it are combined two anglo–saxon words: “be” and be means to live or exist. And lifan which conveys the thought of accordance. Thus to believe means literally “to live in accordance with” anything. Did you get that? It means to live in accordance with… We’re accustomed to consider belief simply to mean mental acquiescence with some particular truth. But its root leads us to action; that which the mind accepts, the will must obey. We do not truly believe, therefore unless our conviction is manifested in our life. Thus understood, “belief” stands on a par with its great synonym “faith,” which in its deeper sense means not only to have trust in a person but to manifest that trust by practical commitment.

Do we believe that God “hath quickened us together with Christ and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Eph. 2:5-6)? If we do, our reaction to it will be a fervent, “Lord, I accept Thy gracious word. I believe that Thou hast thus wrought for me. In humble faith, I do now take my seat in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus at Thy right hand. Teach me how to fulfill this sacred ministry, how to exercise the authority which Thou hast entrusted to me. Train me day by day that I may attain to the full stature of the perfect man in Christ, so that in me Thy purpose of the ages may be fulfilled. Amen.

If we are walking in the Spirit, our normal life is in the heavenlies. To secure the consciousness of this, there must be the daily acceptance of the fact. Let us, morning by morning, as one of our first acts of worship, take our seat with Christ (as suggested in the previous paragraph) return thanks to God for all that it implies. Let us often remind ourselves that we are seated far above all the powers of the air, that they are in subjection to us. [end quote]


A greater revelation and obedience
No longer tolerating any form of bondage of any kind
Realizing and standing in the truth that “I am free”
Whom the Son sets free is free indeed
Revelation for every believer of the territory that they have in Christ Jesus
Where they go, You go
A greater awareness…
Satan, you are a defeated foe, under our feet
In our families, we say no more… in our bodies, we say no more… in our bodies we say not more… in our finances, we say no more

Erika continued with quotation…

The Divine Purpose of the ages

The “God of the whole earth” does not purpose to tolerate forever this rebellion against His righteousness. “I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear” (Isa. 45:23). Ere this can be accomplished, the instigators of human rebellion must be cast down. In this regard the divine method is clear. “The powers of the air” are allowed to retain their seats only while their successors are being prepared. God, having redeemed a people and purified them, has introduced them potentially into the heavenlies. When they have approved themselves, they will in actuality take the seats of the “powers of the air,” thereby superseding those who have manifested their unfitness and unworthiness.

Their purpose, present and future, is very definitely stated in Ephesians 3:9-11. Here it is revealed as the divine will that “now unto the principalities and powers in the heavenly places might be made known through the church the manifold wisdom of God. The Church is to be God’s instrument in declaring to these rebellious and now usurping powers the divine purpose, and in administering their principalities after they have been unseated and cast down.

This is further declared to be “according to the eternal purpose of the ages which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” That is today, God, through all the past ages, has had in view this wonderful plan of preparing in Christ Jesus a people, chosen and called and faithful, whom He might place in these heavenly seats to rule through the ages yet to come. It is spoken of, in the verses just preceding, as “the mystery, which for ages hath been hid in God.”


We lift governmental positions
We declare no weapon formed against them will prosper
An explosion of light and revelation
We lift up entire congregations with a specific call and plan… set free in Jesus’ name… cleared out of all the fray
I take authority over any kind of deception that would come against positions of authority in the church
We lift up those people that are deceived and don’t even know it
Every form or touch that is deceiving but looks right, through the blood of Jesus, those deceiving plans would be uprooted
On the other side, the spirit of seeing true direction and leading by the power of the Holy Spirit
That that high standard would come in
Their eyes would be lifted up and able to see the right and true way
We hold up the right plans
It’s different for different places in the earth
Every church has a call and a plan and way that God has preordained to walk out
We declare some “coming out”
Their coming over the top… some will come straight on through and it will seem like a simple thing to do
There will be joy on the other side of it
Joining hands with other companies of believers
Working together in the Spirit… hand in hand
A greater voice, an amplification

Pastor Ray shared…

I had this happen last evening. My brother-in-law is staying at our house. He hadn’t been downtown Minneapolis for a while. He lives in another state. We made the mistake of driving downtown Minneapolis at 5 to 5:30. We were sitting like we were in a parking lot only it was a street and going nowhere. People were blowing horns. I told Sandy, “We need to get out of here and take a left” even though we were in the right, right lane. The cross way in the next street opened up because the people were afraid to go across. So this man in front of me decided to take advantage of the opening. He took a left. There’s three lanes over here, he takes a left from the right lane! I thought, “I’m following you!” We took a turn and went all the way around and we’re on Washington Avenue. It’s still jammed up everywhere. We’re sitting at a stop light, minding our own business when out of the side window this guy in a pickup… Here’s the curb and it’s like a flat piece of cement and it goes way over here about this far. He’s doing a U-turn and driving over the center median! I mean, his pickup is bouncing all over and we’re like, “Oh my gosh! What is he doing?” I’ve never seen that, especially downtown. He decided he didn’t want to go that way and wanted to go the other way. So he did a U-turn and jumped over the whole median and he pulled over beside us. I look over, “Oh my gosh!” and I looked back. Then Sandy looked over at her brother and he is going absolutely ballistic. His windows are up but he’s slamming the dash and bashing the steering wheel. He’s just going wild! And we’re like, “Just look straight ahead. Do not look to your side.” Cuz these days people will potentially shoot you even if your windshield washer fluid hits their car. It’s happened. All kinds of weird things.

So from that experience, I got a picture of the Church keeping its eyes straight ahead and not be moved by what the enemy is doing. I don’t care what the Devil is doing, going ballistic, driving over curbs, shouting, hollering, we just plead the blood and keep moving and keep going. Many times, we’re so disturbed by what we see out the corner of our eyes that we feel compelled to get involved in it. These days we know enough not to get involved in the natural. In the spirit, we just keep your eyes looking straight ahead.

I want to read this from the Message, John 17. It’s a prayer that Jesus prayed about us.

1-11: Jesus said these things. Then, raising his eyes in prayer, he said: Father, it’s time. Display the bright splendor of your Son so the Son in turn may show your bright splendor. You put him in charge of everything human so he might give real and eternal life to all in his charge. And this is the real and eternal life: That they know you, the one and only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you sent. I glorified you on earth by completing down to the last detail what you assigned me to do. And now, Father, glorify me with your very own splendor, the very splendor I had in your presence before there was a world.

6-12: I spelled out your character in detail to the men and women you gave me. They were yours in the first place; then you gave them to me, and they have now done what you said. They know now, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that everything you gave me is firsthand from you, for the message you gave me, I gave them; and they took it, and were convinced that I came from you. They believed that you sent me. I pray for them. I’m not praying for the God-rejecting world but for those you gave me, for they are yours by right. Everything mine is yours, and yours mine, and my life is on display in them. For I’m no longer going to be visible in the world; they’ll continue in the world while I return to you. Holy Father, guard them as they pursue this life that you conferred as a gift through me, so they can be one heart and mind as we are one heart and mind. As long as I was with them, I guarded them in the pursuit of the life you gave through me; I even posted a night watch. And not one of them got away, except for the rebel bent on destruction (the exception that proved the rule of Scripture).

13-19: Now I’m returning to you. I’m saying these things in the world’s hearing so my people can experience My joy completed in them. I gave them your word; the godless world hated them because of it, because they didn’t join the world’s ways, just as I didn’t join the world’s ways. I’m not asking that you take them out of the world but that you guard them from the Evil One. They are no more defined by the world than I am defined by the world. Make them holy—consecrated—with the truth; Your word is consecrating truth. In the same way that you gave me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world. I’m consecrating myself for their sakes so they’ll be truth-consecrated in their mission.

20-23: I’m praying not only for them but also for those who will believe in me because of them and their witness about me. The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind— just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, so they might be one heart and mind with us. Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me. The same glory you gave me, I gave them, so they’ll be as unified and together as we are—I in them and you in me. Then they’ll be mature in this oneness, and give the godless world evidence that you’ve sent me and loved them in the same way you’ve loved me.

24-26: Father, I want those you gave me to be with me, right where I am, so they can see my glory, the splendor you gave me, Having loved me long before there ever was a world. Righteous Father, the world has never known you, but I have known you, and these disciples know that you sent me on this mission. I have made your very being known to them—who you are and what you do—and continue to make it known, so that your love for me might be in them exactly as I am in them.
