Prayer Summary for Thursday, July 27, 2017

Mary led group in worship…

Mary began to sing out of her spirit…

♪ We see those plans and plots but they come to nothing in the name of Jesus… cooperating with the spirit, don’t you know… oh yes, we cooperate with the Spirit… today, now… shining on… oh the possibilities… shining on… seeing, seeing, seeing…

Word came forth…

These are new days of change, saith the Lord. But My Word, My ways are the same. Yes there are changes all around, people going here and people going there. People coming and people going. But My Word is still the same. I was the same. I am the same. And I always will be the same. My Word and My words remain true. So as you speak and as you go forth these days, watch around you and you’ll see changes in every arena. A change in the churches. A change in the nations. A change in the leadership, presidents, kings, those in positions of authority. I have given you in My Word a command to lift up and declare and pray over those in positions of authority. Continually contend on their behalf and My wisdom, My purpose and plan will come forth. Maybe they’re not saved. Maybe they’re not serving Me, saith the Lord. But they will serve Me. They will move and change things and rearrange things if My people humble themselves and pray. Lift up My Word every day. Declare “This is the way it shall be, this is the way it shall always be.” Things that haven’t changed, they will change, saith the Lord. Sometimes you don’t see the change that you’re in until you get over and out further ahead in your destiny. And then you can look back and see, “Wow, what a change took place in me.” It’s personal and individual change. It’s corporate change. It’s change in every arena on the face of this earth. But still My Word, My words, My purposes for you have not changed. My plan, your destinies, you shall fulfill. So stay steadfast with your face like a flint. Don’t turn around. Don’t go back. Keep yourself stirred up, singing songs and hymns and new psalms, lifting up your voices to Me. Those things that we just heard about in song, breaking through. You shall break through as you stay tuned up and tuned in to Me and My will. And My will is written out in the Book. If you keep your face in it, keep your eyes seeing it, and listen with the ears of your spirit. I am speaking and I am leading. Didn’t I say I would? I’m leading you into all the truth. My truth. Not just what man thinks or says, but what I know, what I’ve said, My truth I’ll leave you. These steps, My plans, will lead you into your destiny to your final destination. Where I could say to you, “Well done, My faithful servant.”

Maybe you’ll say, “Which way do I go? What do I do now?” Listen and keep yourself tuned into Me and you will hear what I’m saying. Look inside. In your heart of hearts, you’ll know. Follow My peace which passes understanding. My peace will direct you into the correct way and plans.

So many things, so many questions, so many changes that are to come, so many right steps and right decisions, correct ways to go depending on what God has called each one of us to do. And our nation too. So many right decisions must be made. Sometimes it’s difficult to get out of a worship flow and I don’t want to stop prematurely. But I believe now if we just begin to pray, or if you’d like, you can sing in the Holy Ghost. This is a new day and if we look around, we see many new things are taking place on the earth. Many historical changes. But many more must come and will come. We want to be where we need to be and we want our leaders to make decisions that will bring them about. So let’s pray in the Holy Ghost for a while.


Make a way where there was no way
We watch over them
We watch over these assignments that have been laid out
We watch over these assignments that we’ve already been given
We watch over these steps we’ve been called to take
As we walk and move ahead and step out into the great unknown, we watch as we move
This step we’re on right now, these steps that the church is standing on right now, we plead the blood of Jesus over them
We want not one thing to be missed where we are right now as the church
Cover everything that needs to be covered
To pull up everyone that needs to be pulled up and lifted up
To turn when we need to turn… stop when we need to stop
When there is that door to go on through
Today, tomorrow, in the days that are to come, by the power of the Holy Spirit, thru His direction, we as members of the church lift up the church, the body
We pray over every member of the body
That the body will increase and move up and do what it’s called to do
From one degree of glory to another

Winds of change
Father, thank You that You assist us by Your Spirit
Your change, Your presence, we welcome You
That we be so open to the new that we’d be so open to the changes You’ve sent to the church
That we might not be stuck in status quo, just blessed with the old
More than able and stirred up and ready to receive Your new changes
Destinies, hanging in the balance
♪ These are new changes… some look like a turn, like maybe it’s turning too far, turning the wrong way… we’re following Your direction, Lord… a meeting of Your Spirit… the winds of change… moving us in some ways… we’re rearranged… but for sure the change… changed within… which brings change outwardly… new steps… we watch over them… we plead the blood… we are watching with the blood… every limit, get out of the way in Jesus’ name… limitations, out! Get out and get away… these are new days… so they’re be new ways for the new days… new operations, new doors, new destinations… it’s all good! That which comes from You… we receive… the new… we’ll not try to push it aside… but we’ll move up out into with You… ♪

I wanted to show you this. I found it in one of my dresser drawers at home. Sometimes you put things away and forget about them. I found this leather bookmark. It has on it, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15. I got this in the 80s when I made the decision to serve the Lord. It meant so much to me that I nailed it on the wall of our house so when we came in the door, there would be “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” That was 30 or more years ago.

Joshua had a word from the Lord in chapter 24. This is the Lord speaking to the people. He said, “I have given you a land for which you did not labor, and cities which you did not build, and you dwell in them; you eat of the vineyards and olive groves which you did not plant. Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt.” Then in verse 15 it says, “And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

If you keep declaring that over your family, guess what they’ll do? Serve the Lord. We declared this over our family way back, over our little ones. Thank God that they’re all serving the Lord. However, maybe you know somebody in your family, if they’re still not serving Him, don’t give up. Don’t quit. Continually declare what the Word said here and say it over them for we live in perilous times.

2nd Timothy 3:1 says, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. Verse 14, “But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them.”

Heavenly Father, we declare this morning, we pray first of all for the things you’ve called each one of us individually to do. We pray for that plan, for Your purpose, exactly the way we prayed it and declared it this morning, that we would do Your will and get to our final destiny and we would hear, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” I welcome You to work in us and continually change us more and more and more in Your ways. Wherever there has been hardness in our hearts, maybe it’s a familiar kind of thing. We know how to lift our hands, to lift our voices, but by Your Spirit, I ask You to plow up those hard places in us. I yearn, we yearn, to be directed, softened, every time that we come to You, that we would never move over into a place of unthankfulness. That we would continually whatever state of life that we’re in have a thankful heart for what You’ve done, what You’ve given, for the lives we’ve been able to live. We thank You for a bright future. It will turn out right when we continually say “as for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord.”
