Prayer Summary for Tuesday, February 7, 2017


Lifting up our hearts today
Honoring Who He is and what He has done
Adjusting ourselves into Your Presence
Thank You, for Your beautiful presence, Lord
The power of Your precious Holy Spirit
Revealing things to us even many times when we are not even thinking about it
You show us and reveal to us some things that are to come
Some things that we are to do
And some things that we are to say
You are good and Your mercies endure forever

Scripture focus…

“I’m speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relation to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it’s important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.” Romans 12:3 (MSG)

I like that because we can reverse that sometimes.

Ms. Annie commented…

When you reverse that, it is called religion.

Pastor Ray commented…

I love it. It’s pure grace. That’s what it is. Have you ever had him show you something when you were brushing your teeth? It goes along with the message that Pastor Mac has been preaching Sunday after Sunday after Sunday. It has already been provided. How much? All of it. It’s been provided through His grace, hallelujah. “The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what He does for us, not by what we are and what we do for Him.” Hallelujah. Did He do it all? Yes. Was it finished on the Cross? Yes.

Yesterday Ms. Erika and I both had something on authority. And she started off by mentioning I Timothy.

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. [God] Who will have all men to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1, 2, 4 (KJV)

The following excerpt is taken from Triumphant Church by Kenneth E. Hagin:

We’ve seen an example of the Word of God prevailing over the strongholds of Satan in the decline of Communism in the Eastern Bloc nations. In 1983, the Lord began to impress upon me to pray according to James 5:7: “ … the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the EARTH … until he receive the early and latter rain’.”

We were conducting a weekly prayer meeting here at RHEMA at that time, and I announced, “I believe we’ve missed it in how we’ve been praying for the Eastern Bloc nations. I think many of us have unconsciously marked off the Communist countries as unreachable for the Gospel. We’ve prayed for the Christians there, but how many of us have prayed for the Communist leaders?

“But the Bible doesn’t say the Lord is waiting for the precious fruit of the United States or the Free World. He is waiting for the precious fruit of the earth, and that includes the Communist countries. That means before Jesus comes again, there has to be a revival behind the Iron Curtain and the Bamboo Curtain, for the Bible says there will be a gathering of the harvest from the whole earth.”

So week after week during our prayer meetings, we prayed for the Communist nations, as well as for the other nations of the world. We asked the Lord to send forth the rain—the outpouring of the Holy Spirit—upon those nations, according to Zechariah 10: 1: “Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time, of the latter rain ….” We prayed for the leaders of the Communist nations according to First Timothy 2:1 and 2. And we asked for the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers (Matt. 9:38).

As we direct our prayers to the Lord of the harvest, we take our position on the earth as the triumphant Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and Satan’s dominion over the lives of the lost begins to be weakened. That’s how we deliver people out of the bondage of the enemy. When we pray for those in authority in the cities and nations of the world, we weaken the effectiveness of Satan’s kingdom in those cities and nations. When we pray, God can have His way in those countries instead of Satan.

I am well satisfied that the changes we have witnessed in the Eastern Bloc nations have occurred because many believers throughout the world prayed scripturally for these nations by the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

As Christians, we have the authority in Jesus’ name to bind the power of the Devil over the political scene of a nation. We have the right to demand that Satan take his hands off the government and the economic and social scene of a nation. We can bind every foul spirit that is affecting these areas and command them to stop in their maneuvers and cease and desist in their actions against us (Matt. 18:18; John 14:13,14).

Satan’s strategies against us on the earth can be stopped in every encounter, and God’s purposes can be fulfilled, as Christians stand in their place of authority in Christ on behalf of the nations of the world by praying for those in authority.

Therefore, let’s put first things first so God, not Satan, can have dominion in our city or nation. Before you pray for your family, pray first for those in authority, so that “…we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (1 Tim. 2:2). This is one way we can keep Satan from taking advantage of us, “… for we are not ignorant of his devices” (2 Cor. 2:11).

The reason we haven’t been more effective over the powers of darkness is that we haven’t taken our rightful place in Christ and we haven’t based our prayers securely on the Word of God. And we haven’t put first things first as much as we should have.

Continued praying…

We take our placed in heaven’s race
Watching, observing, and staying in our heavenly seat
Using our authority and moving out in that heavenly way
Every nation, every tongue, every people group
The things that are happening today on this earth
Nations that have gone so far away from Your ways
We pray over those positions of authority
Praying over them by the blood of the Lamb and seeing them change
Many things have to be stopped now
Getting bigger and bigger in our hearts—now
Now is the time and this is the place
We are the people to call these things forth
Calling the things that are not as though they were
Trusting in You that we have already been equipped, called, and anointed
As we give and given our lives over to You
Thank You that we are born again, filled with Your Spirit
That we are continually being filled with Your precious Holy Spirit
Where the gifts of Your Spirit would continually begin to unfold and come forth like never before
Declaring words that bring about supernatural change immediate
Not six months or a year from now but immediate change
Not that we are impatient but we know that it is Your plan and Your will for the Church to do what You have called us to do
Calling us to pray and entering in by faith to some new days
Reminding ourselves that it is not in our own strength
It is in Your strength that we contend and go through
In each one of us, there will be a bubbling up and an outflowing of Your wonderful Holy Spirit
And Your love moving out through us like never before
Meeting needs wherever we go!
Unusual holy manifestation in these days of 2017
Unusual Holy Spirit given manifestations of Your great glory!
Thank You for it, Lord!
Aid from heaven, help from heaven
Ministering spirits, “go forth – work on behalf of the Church”
For the message of glory, the message of love, the message of grace, for the message of faith
Unlocking some things that have been locked all along
But no, not any more
Be loosed – a rapid change and a rapid turn
Heaven’s mandate
Broken things be made whole, restored in Jesus’ name
Heaven’s treasuries – stones, emeralds, diamonds
Great bright heaven-sent things
More than enough for the Church to move accurately ahead into abundance
We take authority over any kind of poverty in Jesus’ name
Even the poverty of words, words spoken against the will, the plan, the purpose of God almighty
No, we refuse to go down, to walk in a lower way
But take our place in the high places of heaven
Leaders of nation after nation after nation across the face of the earth
Melt and soften their hearts
Bring words, laborers that go forth into these nations
Turning some things absolutely upside down
Even further in Jesus’ name
From cold to hot – heating things up
The fire of the Holy Ghost burning hotter and hotter in the Church
Bringing her forth into what she has been called to do
Every member of the body—it will go well, it is going well
Favor goes before us creating heaven’s opportunities
That’s a limit and we declare it to be removed in Jesus’ name
That’s an inaccuracy, that’s a lie
Turn now, in Jesus’ name, in the right way
No man can stop it, no devil can derail it, but it shall be manifested in Jesus’ name
Stepping up on some new territories
Watching over the steps that have already been taken
It all matters, it all must be right
Decisions should line up with heaven’s way
Entering over into even greater ways
Setting that course, pleading the blood over the steps
Watching the vision – declaring, commanding CHANGE!
Changes! Changes!
Heaven’s help, words of wisdom, clear understanding and see it
Fresh picture or vision
We receive it! We receive it! We receive it!

Praying over our Pastor…

Taking our place beside and behind. He has gone this far in a supernatural race but there is much further in the days, and weeks and months and years that are to come. We water those things that have already begun to come through, breakthrough the soil so to speak, the new. We water all of the seeds and all of the fruit and all of the ways in these days. There will be no stoppage in his steps but he’ll step accurately all through this way. Not one miss, not one thing on each step that will not be completed. For it shall be done as steps are made from one degree upward, momentum. So it will reach out. The word will go forth in an even greater way in these days. We just lift it. The numbers, the steps, the plans increase in every arena, spirit, soul, and body. Cooperation, revelation, understanding and the peace that passes all understanding and so we will go together. And so we will move ahead together as members of the body.
Gifts, manifestations of the Spirit in each and every one of these apostle, prophet, evangelist that he would stand periodically in each one. That it be at the right time and at the right day and he’ll step over into that or step over into this.

Leaders everywhere
Different tongues… (I just keep hearing all the different sounds from nations)
Every nation on the earth, every tongue
Laborers, there they go
Laborers on the scene
Reaching the unreached in Jesus’ name
We prepare with the precious blood today
As we cover these nations, these leaders

Ms. Annie led us in singing in the Holy Ghost…

♪ Treasure in earthen vessels
My treasure is inside your earthen vessel
My treasure is inside your earthen vessel
That the excellence of the glory may be of God
That the excellence of the glory may be of God
My treasure is in you
My excellence, My glory is in you ♪

Pastor Ray shared…

While we were praying this morning, it came up in my heart about heaven’s treasures. They looked like jewels, like a treasure chest full of jewels. I didn’t exactly know how to pray about that or what exactly it was, but I felt I was just to pray in other tongues. When Ms. Annie started to sing, I saw us as members of the body receiving what He has already given, heaven’s treasure. We individually had access and we just reach in and take what kind of jewel hit our eyes. But when we took it, it would turn into whatever it was that we needed, whatever that was. It could turn into a relationship. It could turn into a job. It could turn into favor from heaven, into what we have been called to do. But the treasure, the things that looked like jewels, was actually meeting every single need that we have. Don’t you just want to grab a lot? (ha, ha, ha). It was so beautiful. It is beautiful.

Ms. Annie responded…

All those jewels, all those treasures that we need, they are in us because He is in us. And our reborn spirits are filled with His glory and His jewels and His treasures. So, how do we pull it out? By faith, by love. Hallelujah.

Pastor Ray responded…

Reach in by faith

Ms. Annie responded…

It’s in Him, only in Him but He’s in us.

Continued praying…

I am rich; every need is met
Healthy, prosperous spirit, soul, and body
Able to meet other people’s needs – isn’t that what it is about?
His love through us

♪ Because we have His treasures in our earthen vessels
His treasures are hid in Christ in God
And the excellence of the power and glory is only in God
In these earthen vessel

So we open our treasure houses in Jesus for the world
For the lost, suffering and dying
Oh, we freely give His treasure
Out of our earthen vessels
And the excellence, power and glory that comes from God

He said you are going to be My treasure and I am your treasure
And when you receive it He says it gives Him pleasure
When you receive all His Son gave
It brings Him such pleasure
When His sons and daughter take all that He died to give ♪

So we will shine bright today
Really bright
Filled with the Holy Spirit all the way through
Always, thank you so much for coming
