Prayer Summary for Tuesday, January 3, 2017

Ms. Mary led us singing “Draw Me Lord”


Thank You for drawing us
For Your faithfulness, continual patience and kindness and goodness to us
We do draw nearer to You
We desire more of You today than yesterday
To see Your goodness and Your power and Your glory
Displayed in this earth so that the world might see You and know You
Thankful that You have allowed us and given us the gift of one more year
Stepping across the time line into 2017
For the privilege and honor to serve You
To be co-laborers with You
To advance Your kingdom in this day and hour
We could have lived any other time but You saw fit that we should live now
Thank You, Lord, that we have everything we need in order to do all of Your will and all of Your plan
So we are trusting You for everything as we move forward
For You are everything
Not looking at what was accomplished in the past
Those things that were good or those things that were bad
But, Father, we press forward and we look ahead
With Joy and expectation to see Your hand and Your glory
See what You can do through us, through the Church of the living God
For You said that we would be the glorious Church
Bringing us from glory to glory even as by Your Spirit
Looking for that in every brother and sister that names the name of Jesus
You died and rose again and we are seated on high with You
Every brother and sister to increase, to rise, to awaken
And because freely we have received, freely we give
For we have so much to give
It’s not of ourselves but it is of You
Every sufficiency and every grace and every good thing, Father
Let it be seen in and through the Church
We trust You for it, we believe You for it, and we thank You for it
Hallelujah, Amen and Amen

Ms. Erika shared…

How many are glad we started a new year? How many are glad to forget the things that are behind? Paul said we are to forget those things that are behind. Especially the ones where the Devil goes “You didn’t” and “You should have.” We forget it!

I was recently reading about how “forget” means to absolutely put it away like it didn’t even exist. I like that and then I started thinking about it like it becomes obsolete; that’s one of the descriptions. There are some things that in all of our lives when we were younger that were alright and they were good. They were even maybe necessary. Like the dial telephone. But that thing became obsolete. There are some in here who don’t even know what that is. So it doesn’t even become part of who we are. You don’t even factor it in. You don’t even think about it.

So there are some things going into this year that we are not going to think about because they are now obsolete. That goes individually. Maybe some things happen individually. But maybe some things happened in your family. Some things happened maybe in the Church, in your church. Some things happened in this nation. Certainly there are some things we want to forget about. Isn’t that right? But what we do is what? Press on. Do we just press on because we came up with a good thing? We crossed the New Year’s deal, resolution, going all that seems like a good idea.

For the body of Christ it’s different. As we seek the face of God, ask the Holy Spirit to reveal and unveil and disclose to us and transmit the things of the Father to us individually what we are going to do, what that’s going to look like, how to execute and how to implement. Imagine that. Can you see that? Every member of the body of Christ hearing from heaven by the Holy Ghost going I know what I am pressing to. I know what He is spoken to me. I know what I am going to do by the power of the Holy Ghost. And each one just gets right in there place and everything flows and goes. That’s what I am believing for the Church of the Living God.

God in His mercy and grace gave us an election. Didn’t He? So now what? We’re just all happy. There is a lot of work still to be done and I believe that now is the time for the Church to continue to press into some of those things. Individually to keep ourselves stirred up about the things that He would have us be stirred up. You know the Church can just be happy and stay inside her walls. But we are not going to do that because we need and God wants and desires the Church to enter every fabric of society because that’s the only way that we are going to have the will of God for this nation, Amen.

So I have been thinking about that. Thank heaven for all the things He did. He did so many wonderful things and that heart of thanksgiving keeps you in a place, it’s a healthy place. It’s a healthy place in the Spirit. It’s a healthy place in the natural but even those good things, we can’t just sit there and go, yep that was really good and that was really good. Paul when he said “I forget those things” he did that moment by moment. Whether something was really good because if all you do is sit and think about the good things that have happened, you are going to stay right there. And so we are going to press on as the Church of the Living God and that’s what I want us to pray about today.

That means individually you, me, individual churches, and the Church in the United States and the Church as a whole. No big secret. It’s a mess out there. And so we need to shine brighter and brighter. Isn’t that right?

And then I got to thinking about how we are going to do that. It’s only through Him. And I started thinking about Moses and the task God gave him. Bring all these people, the ones who messed up and got so bad they were in bondage for 400 or however many years, and God said to Moses I want you to bring them out. How would you have liked to have been Moses? Whooyee. And I like how Moses responded to the Lord. Then Moses said to the Lord, “See You say to me bring up this people but You’ve not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said I know you by name and you have also found grace in My sight. Now therefore I pray if I have found grace in Your sight, show me Your way that I may know You and that I might find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people. And He said My presence will go with You and I will give You rest. Then he said to Him, if Your presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight except You go with us. So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth. So the Lord said to Moses I will also do this thing that You have spoken for you have found grace in My sight and I know you by name.”

How are we going to do it? That He would go with us and His presence would be in us and on us and demonstrated through us that the distinguishing marks of a Christian might be more and more evident in every part of our lives, Amen.

Continued praying…

Father, You have so graciously revealed to us
That apart from You, we can do nothing
Thank You, Father, that we can gather in this place in Your name
That we live in a nation where we can still do that
You are our everything
Not resting on what we have done
Looking to You for the glorious transformation of the Church and this nation
So many changes that have been made but still need to be made, Father
Humbling ourselves and we say “Here we are”
Mold us and melt us and make us what we ought to be
Lord, there is nowhere else to go
To Whom would we go? To what else would we look to but You
To bring about the changes individually and corporately in the body of Christ to affect this nation
Our hearts yearn to see the growth and the development and the increase
And the visibility and the separated distinguishing marks that You would have on Your Church
So that others might know You and the power of Your resurrection
In families where mothers and fathers and children come up into revelation knowledge of Whose they are and Whom they serve, knowing that they are loved with an everlasting love
That there is a call and mission on their lives
That Holy Spirit has anointed them and appointed them individually and collectively to do Your will and plan on the earth
Many avenues, many ways, many highways to bring individuals and family members to that place
That they would function in every arena to do Your plan and will
Increase in the development of the love of God
Knowing for themselves experientially that You love them
That if they were the only one, You would have come for just them individually
By Your mercy and grace, we ask and make petition for them with joy and delight
For their fellowship, cooperation, contribution, and partnership in the furthering of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
The development of the love one for another
Father, a revelation of our body parts and members
That they belong to us, we cannot exist without them
We can’t just go on and not love with a deep passionate love one for another
So we are asking You for that, Father, trusting You for that
Crossing denominational lines, eyes to see, understanding in Light, Father
That things would open up
Divine strategies to the hearts of Your people, how to flow
So Your leading would be so supernatural that it would be as easy as breathing
Greater increase in operations and manifestations of Your Spirit
Entering in together on divine projects ordained by the Spirit for this last day
Advancement and increase into our communities, into our state, into our nations
You said wherever your foot would go you would possess the land
So we are looking to possess land all around us, Father
Not in a haughty way but in a demonstration of Your goodness and Your mercy and Your love
By Your Spirit, Father, grant revelation, dreams and witty ideas, and witty inventions inspired singly and souly by You for the increase of Your kingdom and Your power and Your glory
That we would be out of the box, so to speak
But, Father, we need the inspiration of the Spirit
We need the anointing to match where we are today
For we have never walked this way before
So we are looking to You for that, Father God

We are convinced and sure of this very thing, that You Who began a good work in us will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion.

We ask for forgiveness for starting some things and letting them drop
We ask and receive forgiveness, receive the cleansing blood of Jesus
That You the author and finisher of our faith would complete it
Father, we know it’s in the finishing
We desire to finish strong, supernatural strength to complete those tasks
Each one stepping in and putting our hand to the plow
One would help another, such cooperation and collaboration
Not coming from a “have to” but, Father, that there would be a significant shift in the Church of the Living God
Even as Jesus endured some things
But He could see the end from the beginning
So we are asking for that in the Church of the Living God
That there would be great illumination about the end
Great sustaining power by Your Spirit, sustaining us
That that sustenance of You, Your very self would be the strength of our lives
That we would do it with joy because we rejoice in each day You give us
We rejoice in the God of our salvation
We rejoice that we live in this day and in this hour
We rejoice that You have blessed us with every Spiritual blessing
You have blessed us in every which way
You have given us everything that we need to be overcomers in this life
So, Father, we are asking for that shift, that change
That it is out of hearts of gratitude, hearts of thanksgiving that we move forward in this last part of the race
Father, we count it an honor and a privilege as we march down this road together
That we would link our shields of faith, walk arm in arm with our brothers and sisters in the Lord with the very little one, with the very older ones – everyone that names the name of Jesus as the risen Lamb of God
No longer competition amongst the members of the body of Christ
But let each one of us desire with heartfelt burning love, succeeding in whatever they put their hands to
Prospering in our mind, will, and emotions, prospering in You
Not living in the old man that has held us back, kept us chained to our past
But we are looking for the Redeemer
The redemption of the mind and the soul and the parts of the body of Christ that have been held captive by lies and deception
That great washing of the blood of Jesus and renewing of our mind
Father, teach us once again how to do that
That we would prosper in our soul through the renewing of the Word of the Living God
That we would once again so esteem Your Word, for that word is You
You are life to us, the very reason and existence of us
So, Father, we are asking for a great paradigm shift in the body of Christ
Thank You, Lord, for it

Father, we pray that we will always strive earnestly for each one in our prayer, pleading their case. That as persons of ripe character and clear conviction, each one would stand firm and mature [in spiritual growth], convinced and fully assured in everything willed by God.

Father, that’s our desire, our cry
That each one, every person of ripe character, clear conviction stands firm and mature in spiritual growth convinced and fully assured in everything willed by God
An individual and then corporately
Great clarity to everyone, Father
Fully convinced and assured of the will of God
The whole body of Christ
Opened up in a way that it has not been opened up before
So desiring the increase – nothing missing in our parts or members
That we would not fall behind in any good thing
But that increase would come to each and every one
In every conception of the Spirit that You have in mind from the inception of the world, Father
Because the world needs to see You and know You
Grant utterance to fivefold ministry gifts
For the perfecting of the saints and the work of the ministry
Increase the gifts to a higher platform
Grant a Spirit of boldness, speaking the word of truth
Piercing and penetrating the hearts of the believers
Up and out from any muck and mire that they have been embedded in
An anointing that would fall on them in a new and a fresh way
Eyes to see, eyes to see, eyes to see
Boldness and courage
Touch and visit them afresh by Your Spirit
Surround, encompass, and wash over them
The blood of the Lamb over every fivefold ministry gift
Over their hearts, over their minds, over their bodies, over their families
We loose angels to guard, guide, and protect them in the name that is above every name
They function under Your hand
They hear from heaven, orchestrated to flow in the places that we as the Church needs to go
Collaboration amongst fivefold ministry gifts that has NEVER been seen before!
In order to accomplish Your plan and Your purpose, Father
Our eyes are on You, Father, for the raising up of the Church
Taking authority over ever shackle that would hold, and limit, and bind them
Whether manmade or “demon made,” we declare “You are free from your shackles in Jesus’ name!”
We break the power of those shackles over fivefold ministry gifts and we declare FREEDOM
Be loosed in Jesus’ name!
Be free from condemnation and shame
Be free from lying demon powers
Be free in Jesus’ name
And, Father, we thank You for the peace that passes all understanding
That garrison about their hearts and minds
Your presence would accompany them, would go with and attend them
A greater dependence than ever before of the fivefold ministry gifts of falling into Your everlasting arms and leaning and trusting and depending upon You
We are looking for that, Father
We are trusting You for it
We believe You for it
We are thanking You for it – supernatural change in Jesus’ name

And, Father, in Christ, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to You, Father, with freedom and without fear).

Greater boldness, courage
All of us would understand and know the cleansing blood of the Lamb
You said to come boldly to Your throne of Grace to obtain mercy and grace to help in time of need
That there would be more coming to that throne of grace than ever before in the Church of the living God
Oh happy throne room!

For this reason [seeing the greatness of this plan by which we are built together in Christ],

See the greatness of Your plan—what a great plan
More and more conscious and revealing of that plan
That we would cease from having out of body experiences thinking that we are independent of the body
But, Father, we want to be so aware that we are in Christ, in Christ, In You

We bow our knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named. That, Father, You would grant out us of the rich treasury of Your glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself]

Strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man
Not only to see the will of God but initiate and execute and finish the will of God
Every member and every part—we believe You for it
We trust You for it

May Christ through our faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in our hearts!

We don’t want to be like those that are blown around by every wind
In one day and out the next
Flittering and fluttering around like we have no purpose, no plan
But we want to be like those where You actually dwell and settle down
Abide and make Your permanent home in our hearts
We are looking for some strong and sturdy and some abiding permanent homes in the Church of the Living God
Not shaken or pushed off the mark by outward external things
Only moved by You
By Your word, by Your Spirit, and by Your will
Stable Christians because we know You
I don’t just know about You, I know You, I know Your Word
I know everything about You because I come nearer and nearer to You
Because I listen to the voice of the Good Shephard
Desiring to do the things that please You
We don’t have a long distance relationship
We are in a face to face experience with You – God Almighty, Creator of the heavens and the earth
The one Who is Love, the One Who gave love
The One who is an eternal God, a covenant keeping God
Father, that’s the ones we are wanting to be
Demonstrate Christ in us
That there would be such solidity and such a solid foundation of love in the Church
Such hope, such joy unspeakable and full of glory, such faith, such strength
That there would be so many distinguishing marks, Father
That the multitudes would say “I have to have that!”
“What must we do to be saved?”
May we be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love
That means there must be revelation to the Church
Roots down deep, sunk in deep, deep roots of love in the Church of God
From that place outgrowth comes
Love emanated from the Church
A strong and compassionate love that displays itself in ways the world is astounded by

That we may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints (the experience of that love) what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; [That we may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience];

Each one of us, Father, falling in love with You, Jesus
Your Holy Spirit, Your word, everything that You are experientially
We are believing for that, Father

That we may be filled [through all our being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

That’s what we are looking for
The richest measure of the divine presence
A body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself
It’s only by Your mercy and by Your grace, Father
But we trust You

Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—

You said You would do superabundantly above what we ask
And You have ways and means that we know to of
If it doesn’t exist, You will make it for the Church individually and collectively
We are looking for the glorious transformation, translation of the Church of the living God
For God is my witness how I long for and pursue you all with love, in the tender mercy of Christ Jesus [Himself]! And we pray that our love may abound yet more and more and extend to its fullest development in knowledge and all keen insight [that our love may display itself in greater depth of acquaintance and more comprehensive discernment], So that each one of us may surely learn to sense what is vital, and approve and prize what is excellent and of real value [recognizing the highest and the best, and distinguishing the moral differences]. That we as the Church would be untainted and pure; unerring and blameless. That with hearts sincere and certain and unsullied, we may approach] the day of Christ [not stumbling nor causing others to stumble]. May you abound in and be filled with the fruits of righteousness (of right standing with God and of right doing) which come through Jesus Christ (the Anointed One), to the honor and praise of God [that His glory might be both manifested and recognized].

That’s what we are looking for, Father
Trusting You, Father
We believe You
We thank You
And, Father, we pray that the word of the Lord would have free course
Speed on and spread rapidly and run its course and be glorified and extolled and triumph in the lives of each and every member of the body of Christ
We give You glory for it

Ms. Mary led us singing “I Draw Nearer to You”

Amen, God bless you and thank you for coming
