Prayer Summary for Thursday, September 01, 2016

Jerre led in worship…

Pastor Ray shared…

I want to read this from Reinhard Bonnke’s book, Daily Fire. This is a daily devotional. This is unique because of his perspective as an evangelist. I wanted to read the July 12 writing. This is about prayer.

Reveling in Prayer

The New Testament has an astonishing array of references to prayer. The main word for “prayer” (Greek: proseuche) is used over 120 times. God gives many things without being asked—rain, sunshine, winter, summer—but He planned that we should receive other things by asking for them. The list is long: salvation, the Holy Spirit, guidance, equipment for spiritual battles, the gifts of the Spirit, power to witness, strength, effectiveness, boldness, relief from anxieties, our daily bread, the kingdom to come, the will of God to be done, relief from trial and temptation, healing—and more. We are even to pray for our enemies.

Communicating with God is the Christian distinction. Jesus forbade “vain repetitions” (Matthew 6:7). The disciples opened their hearts to God about everything, including their innermost feelings. They wrote letters that changed the usual good wishes and pleasantries into prayers. Paul wrote to Christians in Rome: “Without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers” (Romans 1:9). To believers in Corinth, Galatia, Ephesus, Philippi, Colossus, Thessalonica, and to Timothy, he wrote: “Grace to you and peace from God our father and the Lord Jesus Christ” (v. 7). Some letters appear to be just extended prayers.

“If wishes were horses, beggars would ride, it is said, but the first Christians addressed wishes to the Father in the name of Jesus—and did receive! Praise God! The unbeliever wishes—the believer prays. In the book of Acts, the soldiers and crew of a ship were in danger and “all hope that we would be saved was finally given up” (Acts 27:20).

Paul prayed—and they were saved! James prayed in the Christian way: “Pray for one another, that you may be healed” (James 5:16). Like John writing to Gaius: “I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health” (3 John 2). Prayer expects an answer. The unbeliever sighs, “If only…” The believer rejoices “in hope of the glory of God” (Romans 5:2). Today, pray… and expect Him to hear and answer!

We pray that we don’t leave projects undone, unfinished…
That we don’t leave a vacuum in places we’ve gone in the spirit
Or places we go in the natural
We go in demonstration and power of the Spirit
We’re looking for that, Father, in the Church
That the distinguishing marks of Christians would be more and more evident and manifested
There has to be an internal change, continual increase in the body of Christ
That our faith would grow exceedingly, Father
There must be an increase in the feeding of the Word, and obeying
Moving from a nominal place to where that Word becomes vital to every moment of our lives
We’re looking for that, Father
We pray for more and more lights burning brightly
The wind of Your Spirit to fan the flames
That there would be a great stirring up of the flames
Gaining momentum… gatherings gathered together for that big bon fire
That there would be fruit from those gatherings
Fruit born of Your Spirit, born of the seed of the Word
Lives drastically changed
We need a showing of Your great displays of power… Your goodness and mercy
Change, Father, great change… internal change
Rivers of living water… wells springing up
Such as we have, we give… Freely we have received and freely we give
Dispensers of Your glory
Into the harvest fields… tailor-made plans
There must be a greater response to the Spirit… going into the highways and byways
We take authority over delays and disobedience in the name of Jesus
We hear Your voice and the voice of a stranger we will not obey
But implicit obedience to the voice of our good Shepherd
Acquisitions… in the spirit by the Spirit… acquisitions spiritually and naturally
We do see it, we do seize it in the name of Jesus… a greater movement in that direction
The invitation has been given in the name of Jesus… move out, move forward, move up
On every side, in every realm, in every field, in every endeavor believers are rising to their places
Arising, arising, arising and shining
We agree in the power of the Holy Ghost for greater boldness and utterance
Stepping out and speaking Your Word
Calling things, calling things that be not as though they were
Calling things forth
We call prosperity… healing… cooperation and collaborate… fulfillment… function… operations of Your spirit… body parts to function under the head of the Church…
You have been ordained to function… every part… every member giving your supply… release your supply!
That’s the gifts unwrapped for everyone to see. For even those that are walking in those gifts to see it in themselves. For greater revelation about what’s been sent and what was prepared before the beginning of time. Gifts given to man… It works for the great commission… for the souls, the lost to come in
So we take hold of it… in a way, we look internally to see what You’re saying
There are some situations that have to be closed up, locked, and the key thrown away. It’s over. It’s done. It’s finished. The battle was won. Believe it. Receive it. Walk away from it. But on the other side, step into the new. There are doors that have already been opened for you. There are gates that have already been opened for you. There’s a plan that’s been made right for you. Individually for you to walk out in fullness and glory and the presence of God. The peace of God. The wisdom of God.
Developments… we lift them up… we pray over certain developments in Jesus’ name
We lift up the United States and things that are developing… not just spiritually but naturally too… things in the natural are not developed in their entirety yet… but they will in Jesus’ name… the other side too, on the spiritual side for these things to develop… to be in full manifestation… getting the church to its right destination… getting the nation to its right destination…
What we as a nation have been called to be… we’re not looking to another nation to see how we should be… we’re looking to heaven to see how You created us to be… this nation… one nation under God, You Father!
We send out laborers in a greater number than before
This country is known for missionaries to go… but even in years past there’s been a change where missionaries are coming here
For we have a call to send… we have a call to go… we have a call to spread forth and bring that Word of life to other nations
Lines of communication… ways by the Spirit to send it… to pray it out…
We pray over our State of Minnesota… we declare this state is moving in God’s preordained way
We’re not going back to how we were… we’re going into the new… right steps… progress in Jesus’ name
Let’s move over into November… the church’s participation in the transformation of this nation in the name of Jesus
We apply the blood over every believer and their privilege, right, and responsibility to make the voice be heard regarding this nation… and how she is governed and the direction in which she goes… we pray for continual information, revelation of the right and rightness of God to come forth…
We call for a mighty turn out… Turn out, Church!
We loose ministering angels to Go and work on our behalf in regarding this coming November
Work to facilitate change of this nation
Father, we thank You that those with a prophetic voice will begin to lift them up in the pulpit, in the schools and that they will begin to speak the things that must be, the things that are ordained to be, things that have been confirmed since the beginning of this nation… we ask that there would be a prophet in the land who will stand up and speak… that pastors have holy boldness… teachers will have holy boldness… voices saying “This is the way, walk ye in it.” Father, we thank You that You will confirm Your Word with signs following… power and the supernatural to be unleashed in such a way that there would be no doubt that the God of Israel is alive and well in this country… Thank You, Father
For every element in its place
And those that have become weary in their jobs and in the pulpit, we ask Father for a refreshing, for a fresh wind to come and blow upon them and revive them that they step up in confidence … that a coal to be set upon their tongues that they may speak boldly…
Every plan of the enemy that would attempt to derail or change the outcome to his side… I’m speaking of the enemy… we hold the blood against you right now… the blood for protection
This nation will not be denied the correct God-given outcome… it will not be stolen in Jesus’ name
We plead the blood over every aspect of the election
Votes sent it, we cover them with the blood
People will not be voting multiple times… they get one vote in Jesus’ name
We declare protection over every voting booth and where the votes are counted
It will not be turned and used for the enemy’s plan—no, no, no in Jesus’ name
