Prayer Summary for Thursday, July 6, 2017

Ms. Mary led us singing “Open the Eyes of Our Heart”


Thank You that You are showing us that our hearts always have seen what You have already done for us
Opening up our eyes to see who You are and what You have done and to see what You are doing
To see how things are working out, how things are being carried out
To see that You are moving by Your Spirit in this earth in these last days
Oh thank You, Lord
Thank You that we see things the way You’ve shown us, the way You told us
The way You’ve written it out for us in Your precious Word
Thank You, we stand on Your Word
We know that’s revelation, that’s a strong foundation, that’s the place we need to stay
On Your Word – thank You for it
Hallelujah – thank You, Jesus

It’s on my heart this morning concerning our spiritual eyes being opened up to what He’s done and, of course, that can take us to Ephesians.

Scripture focus…

(15–19) That’s why, when I heard of the solid trust you have in the Master Jesus and your outpouring of love to all the followers of Jesus, I couldn’t stop thanking God for you—every time I prayed, I’d think of you and give thanks. But I do more than thank. I ask—ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength!

(20–23) All this energy issues from Christ: God raised him from death and set him on a throne in deep heaven, in charge of running the universe, everything from galaxies to governments, no name and no power exempt from his rule. And not just for the time being, but forever. He is in charge of it all, has the final word on everything. At the center of all this, Christ rules the church. The church, you see, is not peripheral to the world; the world is peripheral to the church. The church is Christ’s body, in which he speaks and acts, by which he fills everything with his presence. Ephesians 1:15–23 (MSG)

We are not looking to the world for our answers. In other words the world will look to the Church for answers, for revelation.

Ms. Mary led us singing “Welcome Holy Spirit”

Continued Praying…

We know that You are here, Holy Spirit
We welcome Your presence to be filled with the power
Thank You that You are living inside of us

Pastor Ray…

Let’s sing in the Holy Ghost for a just a little bit. When we do, we are lifting precious sounds up to heaven, words by the Spirit. And we don’t know the things that we may be singing about in other tongues and praying out but we know that we are. I know also that when we do, we stir ourselves up. We work on that inner part. Paul prayed that we would be this way, that we would be moved by the Spirit, that we would be in the Spirit. And then we know the Bible, of course, tells us that when we are praying in the Holy Ghost, lifting up our voices, we are stirring ourselves up in Him. I think that’s a prelude to seeing things that we can’t see in the natural, but we can and will see them by the Spirit. What a precious, precious holy plan He has for each one of us individually.

Continued praying…

Thank You, Father, for those personalized plans, those steps that are ordained
They are within us – a Holy Spirit given GPS system
We know You are leading us
It would be so wrong to say continually “Lead me. Lead me.”
You already said “I’ll lead you”
You have put in each one of us a supernatural plan
And we pray (just like Paul prayed) that the eyes of our hearts would be open to what You are calling us to
And also what You have already done
When Jesus said “It is finished,” it was already done
Thank You, Father
Thank You that You are opening up our eyes today
To see what You have done and what You are doing

Ms. Mary led us singing “Open the Eyes of Our Heart”

A Word of the Lord came forth:

I had this picture come to me just while we were lifting His name up singing in other tongues, asking for hearts to be opened. “In these days that we are living in now, right now, I will begin to change you from one person into another. For an example, Mary Terry is Mary Terry but Mary Terry will not be Mary Terry. What you will see will be more of My Spirit and less of her natural parts, plans, and ways. Each one of us will begin to be changed into more and more of a Spirit-directed being in these last of the last times and days on this earth.”

Changed from one person into another and the way I saw it was it’s not something we can do. We can have a part by doing what we know to do, basing our lives on the Word, welcoming the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit, praying in tongues, lifting up our voices in one accord, gathering ourselves together as we’ve been told and taught in the Word. But those around us will begin to see us in a different way because we will be changed and we are being changed from one degree of glory to another and to another and it will not stop until the end. For the victory has already been won and the victory is ours but as we take these steps of faith by His grace and His mercy and His power and His strength, we will absolutely be changed into another man, another woman. We will have the same name but we will look different.

Continued praying…

Father, we welcome these changes
We want change
All kinds of change – changes in every way
Changes in our hearts
The way we see people, the world
God kinds of changes
In the Church and through the Church
In our nation and other nations all over the earth
Individual personal change
Thank You for it, Lord

Ms. Mary led us singing “Changed in the Presence of a Holy God”

A Word of the Lord came forth…

“You sing well My children this day. Holy, holy, holy is Your God and majestic is My name. It is true that I never change. I am the God of signs and wonders and I never change but I do bring change. I change you into My likeness as you praise Me, as you yield to Me and meditate in My Word. I never change with My goodness and My mercy and My grace. For I bring a good change to You. I never change in My Love or My Grace. It’s always the same as I am. I am the same yesterday, today, and forever. I never change. I am holy and majestic but I bring a holy change to you purifying your hearts. I bring a holy change to you, leading and guiding you in My ways, in My truth, in My light, in My freedom. Yes, it is a good change that I bring. It is a powerful change. It is a lasting change because I am your everlasting true and mighty God. So continue to trust Me and praise Me and see Me in the light of My glory and My holiness. And that light and that glory will shine in you and through you bringing great change to you and through you to the world around you, sayeth the Lord. I am great and I never change, but I do bring great change to you as you praise Me, sayeth the Lord.”

The following prophecy was given by Pastor Lynne Hammond on February 7, 1993:

Time for a Change

I said you’d be changed in My presence, sayeth the Lord. If you have not experienced change in your life, if your old ways are still prevailing, if your old man is still in evidence, you have not spent the time with Me that I desire. It isn’t a matter of self-control or disciplining your flesh with no help from Me, sayeth God. If you’ll spend time in My presence, you will be changed. Your pattern of life will be changed. Your old man will begin to pass away. Your new man will begin to rise in the image of My Son. Your life will begin to bear much fruit. The evidence of your walk with Me will change as a result of spending much time in My presence.

If you’re having trouble getting rid of an old habit, if you’re having trouble with your marriage, if your family relationships aren’t changing, you’re not spending the time with Me that would enable that change to come to pass. Your desire and the motivation of your heart to walk uprightly before Me is a product of becoming so close to Me that you do not want to bring hurt to Me.

In natural relationships, when you love someone, you want to do the right things for them. You don’t want to hurt them. Well, as you spend time with Me, in My presence, we’ll develop a relationship that is closer than any earthly relationship. It will shape the pattern of your living. You’ll want to conform your ways to My Word simply because it’s the desire of your heart. Your life will change; but it will be a product of your spending time with Me.

Pastor Ray shared…

It reminds me of a testimony taken from Ozark Alabama a while back. Pastor Lynne’s twin sister, Lucy McKee, who is now in heaven, had moved to Ozark, Alabama because there was a move happening in the church there. Vickie Jameson and Lucy, they were all there. We would go every year for a Holy Ghost conference. One of her testimonies was a lady who had so many problems in her life. They were physical problems and different kinds of things. During this time, they had all kinds of services going on throughout the week and a lot of it was about His presence. This lady with all the problems would come to the services, but they didn’t lay hands on her and no one prayed over her. She just kept coming back and back and back, being in His presence like today.

The way we began lifting that song up “Open the Eyes of My Heart,” we could do that for the whole hour and then leave and we’re changed. But we are not here about us. We are here about others too. We always have to keep that perspective. It’s not just about me or you. It’s about others that we come and gather together in His name and pray out His prayer.

This lady’s life was completely and totally changed. Her physical body was changed; her family problems were changed all because she spent time with Him. I love it. Maybe sometimes in our lives today we don’t spend enough time with Him. Can’t you just picture the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, wanting us to just be with Him, to spend more time with Him. And the things that you are looking to be changed, they will change.

Close your eyes. Look back on your own life, just look back a ways. Some of the most precious, precious times of supernatural change were when His presence would be so manifested that you just couldn’t… you just wanted to lay on the floor. We’ve done that, just let ourselves be saturated with more and more and more of His Spirit. Lay back in Him, rest in Him with that supernatural rest. There is a labor but we labor to rest. If there are some situations in the world that are in our faces so to speak, we rest in Him. I like that prophecy that Ms. Dar gave. He has not changed but He is bringing continual change in our lives. Hallelujah. Amen.

Let’s pray in other tongues a little bit and then we will do a confession over America because we get to, because we need to, and because we have to. Amen.

Continued praying…

We lift up the keys
No end in sight but victory in Him
So we set our sights on heaven above and receive and receive and receive His love
The race, the race – oh keeping up the pace for the race
All of it, every bit of it
Today would be the day
Today is the day, now is the time
In time, on time
Taking our stance, taking our place
Places, territories, realms, opportunities, doors
Not being held back in any way but busting through in and through the power of the Your Spirit
Things that were missing – restored!
Things that were not right – changed and made right!
Closer and closer and closer
Closing in on it
But we’ll keep ourselves separated, watchful, and stirred up
So that we might bust through in every area that we must go to

Locations, all kinds of different location and changes
Rearranging – but it is all good as we just heard
God’s change is good change and it’s not just a little change
But some things will be great change
And the finances will not be just a little change but great increase for everyone

The following is a prayer for our nation by Pastor Lynne Hammond:

Father, in the name of Jesus, and according to your Word, we pray for those in authority in our nation. We lift up President Donald Trump, his family, his staff and cabinet members. Let Your Word cling to them and let them not depart from your plan. Strengthen them with mighty power by your Spirit to stand against wickedness, lies and deception. Guide President Trump’s decisions; let Your light shine upon his path and show him the path of reversal for every evil way. Continually surround him with godly men and women who impart wise counsel to him. Cause the way of the wicked to be set to confusion and come to nothing. Deliver us from the traps and snares the enemy has laid for us, and let the wicked be caught in their own devises and be brought to shame.

We take authority over the plots and plans of the enemy against this nation. Let prideful and lying lips be silenced in Jesus’ name. Slanderers will not be established in America. We pray for our Congress, our Supreme Court, our Military leaders and our intelligence agencies. Let the wisdom that is from above reign in this nation and be constantly speaking to our leaders. We exercise the authority you have given us to tread down all the power of the enemy. We cast down and demolish imaginations and arguments that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God, and we bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. We bind spirits of strife and division, civil wars and tumults, spirits of hostility, lawlessness and blasphemy, and fires from hell that have burned in our cities.

We speak grace and peace over America. We pray and believe for the voice of truth, salvation, revival and restoration to be proclaimed and heard across our land. Grant unto your servants everywhere that with all boldness we may speak your Word. We pray for a mighty outpouring of your Spirit with signs, wonders and miracles. We expect the wisdom of this world that is earthly, sensual and devilish to depart and vanish until Your, mighty work in America becomes a beacon of hope for all people everywhere. We expect the voice of rejoicing to be heard in our nation for your goodness, mercy and prosperity, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
