Prayer Summary for Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Scripture focus…

(1) Now it happened, when David and his men came to Ziklag, on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the South and Ziklag, attacked Ziklag and burned it with fire, (2) and had taken captive the women and those who were there, from small to great; they did not kill anyone, but carried them away and went their way. (3) So David and his men came to the city, and there it was, burned with fire; and their wives, their sons, and their daughters had been taken captive. (4) Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep. (5) And David’s two wives, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the widow of Nabal the Carmelite, had been taken captive. (6) Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God. (7) Then David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech’s son, “Please bring the ephod here to me.” And Abiathar brought the ephod to David. (8) So David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”

(18) So David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away, and David rescued his two wives. (19) And nothing of theirs was lacking, either small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything which they had taken from them; David recovered all. (20) Then David took all the flocks and herds they had driven before those other livestock, and said, “This is David’s spoil.” I Samuel 30:1–7, 18–20 (NKJV)

Ms. Jeani shared…

[Four people were asked to come to the front. One person who would represent David and other three to represent David’s men.]

They were all in debt and discontented. And now since they had been around David, they were mighty men of God. Then the enemy comes and steals from them. And it says they wept until they could weep no more and they were embittered. And their bitterness turned to David. So the enemy came to steal from them but their bitterness turned to David. But what does David do?

So, it started with David making the decision in the midst of the enemy coming after him and taking everything and all the accusations flying at him, he decided to encourage and strengthen himself in the Lord.

[Here we see David standing up front with the other three surrounding him and pointing their fingers at David.]

Imagine each one of these three people pointing a finger up here represents 200 people a piece. David is being accused. He is being attacked by those that he knows. And along with that, the enemy has just ravished his family and his properties. But look at what he is doing.

[The person representing David is lifting his hands and praising God.]

Can’t you just hear the Holy Spirit ministering to David? “I am your shield. I am Your abundant compensation. Your reward shall be exceedingly great.” I mean he is being ministered to by the Lord. And God is strengthening him and encouraging him in the middle of all of these accusations.

So, here is what doesn’t come out of David’s mouth in the middle of all of this. “Well, I don’t like the way that person prays. Get me out of here. Are you going to make me safe? What are You going to do with those 200 men? What are You going to do with those 400 men?” None of those questions come out of David’s mouth. But what does David ask the Lord in the middle of this? “Should I pursue and overtake this troop? Should I go in and recover all?” And he does this in the middle of all of this, [the three people surrounding and pointing fingers at David] when those closest to him want to stone him. That is the Church.

Okay, then David said “Shall I go in and overtake this troop?” He is just asking if he should. And upon the Word of the Lord that says yes, do it and you shall recover all, everyone gets in line with David again. His accusers get in line with him again—unity in the Church again. David didn’t make it about accusation. He didn’t care. He didn’t make it about “Well this person doesn’t like me and I don’t like how this person is and this happened. It didn’t matter to David. What was the main thing to David? Shall I go and take it all? And he only needed to hear from God. Should I go and take it all? And then upon the Word of the Lord, there was unity. And they went and they recovered all plus more from the enemy’s camp.


And even as we linger here right now, we thank God that our President Trump, bathed in the prayers of the Church, pursues and recovers all
So let’s just linger, let’s just Selah in this
Father, we thank You
Holy Spirit, just minister to us even now Your Word
And that the question would rise up in us “Shall we go in and recover all?”
And we hear You answer us “Go in, pursue, for you will without fail recover all.”
Father, we thank You for unity within the body of Christ
We thank You, Lord, for unity
That the Church is the sleeping giant now awake
Awake, Awake, Awake
We just meditate on Your answer to go in, pursue, and recover all
And that’s really what it is about
It’s really not about anything else

So, Lord, we pray as the Church that just as that example gives that we rise up as the Church
We’ve all had something stolen, whether it be time, finances, health, prosperity, relationships
Lord, that we as a Church would come together
And we wouldn’t be complaining and wanting to point the finger at a man
But we turn to You and ask You “Should we go after the enemy?”
As the Church, it almost should be a hypothetical question
Because, of course, we go after and get what was taken from us
Lord, that as we rise up as the Church, we can accomplish great things and recover everything that each of us has taken as a group and as His army, we can go in and rise up and go get it and we will be victorious along the way
And in doing so, we recover even more
Those people who were even believers fallen away, that they will be strengthened and encouraged
That we as a church need to come together because we have a common enemy
And it’s not each other
It’s the spirits that work from Satan’s dominion
But the thing is, we have been given the authority
We are not a weak, helpless, emaciated group of people just clinging on, just hoping that God comes through and does something
He said “I give you the authority to go in and take it all.”
He has given us the orders
He has given us the strategies
He has given us the ultimate weapon that was ever created – the name of Jesus
And we overcome by testifying every little thing that He has done for us
And by the blood of the Lamb
We praise You, Lord, that You have made it available
Once and for, that we have what we need to go and recover
We stand, we stand, we stand
We will not back down regardless of what it looks like
That this country in line with that was developed and the foundation was based on those principles
So, Lord, we take those principles of Your Word that You established
And we continue
We don’t rebuild it – we just knock off all the junk that doesn’t look like Your Word
Why? Because we have the authority
The enemy may have threats, may puff up its chest and goes around like a roaring lion looking for who it can devourer
It doesn’t say it goes around devouring
He looks to who will be in agreement with him
But we say we don’t listen to that
We know that our God is the one who is above all
We has His Word, we have His strength, we have Him inside of us
Lord, that we don’t need to keep looking for You
You are right here
We pray that You open our eyes to see what we are standing in, right around us
That we take what’s in our hand, especially what’s in our mouth
We use our tongues as a weapon against the enemy
We use Your Word and Your truth, Lord
We praise You and thank You that we have what we need to go in and recover all
And that is Your Word
As we continue to stand for America and the leadership and the times that are going on right now
Because now our leader, the one that we are looking to in the sense of the political system is being attacked from every single direction
But, the Word of the Lord shall overcome
We as the Church rise up and hold him up
As Your Word says, we are to pray for our leaders
When the leadership is in line with You then there is peace in the land
And the people are happy
So, Father, right now and in the name of Jesus and according to Your Word
We pray for those who are in authority in our nation
Everyone from nation to the state to the regional to the local to even the neighborhoods
Father, You have established those systems and we have the obligation to pray for them so it will go well with them and us

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.

(That is everyone from national to the state to the regional to the local to even the neighborhoods. Father, You have established those systems and we have the obligation to pray for them so it will go well with them and us.)

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.

(Father, I thank You that these word accomplish what You have sent them forth to do. Just like the rain comes down from heaven and does not return void. It accomplishes that for which You have sent it to do. That these words that we speak day in and day out, they accomplish what You sent them to do. Each word is not void of power. No, it is full of Holy Ghost power and goes into every aspect of our government, all the agencies, every aspect of our military. And these words root out the enemy and establish justice. Father, we will not be silenced and we will not be appeased. We will go forth and with our God we will bring our nation back to You Father, completely back to You. Father, we pray for our education system. Father, we know that nothing in impossible with You. Our colleges, we pray that those liberal colleges will fall in Jesus’ name. That You will accomplish what needs to happen in our higher education. That our nation will be Holy Ghost led in the name of Jesus.

We just go to the Oval office right now. Holy Spirit, You hover over the Oval Office right now, over that desk, over the points of decision, You minister to every councilor, to every advisor. Lying lips will not be heard! But the Truth reigns even now and it sets the captive free. Thank You, Father, for judgements, for rulings that set the captive free coming from our leadership.)

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.

Continued praying…

Every attack that would seek to devour our President
We call you completely thwarted – exposed in the name of Jesus
We decree a reversal of every evil way
Of abortion in our land
That spirit of murder and strife
Hatred and perversion – calling evil good and good evil
We say that the righteous rule and the people rejoice in Jesus’ name!
We declare a reversal of lying lips in the media
The truth is shouted from the housetops
We decree a reversal of those spirits of slander that go forth on the airways
We decree a reversal of perverted rulings
Justice does not go forth perverted in our land in the name of Jesus
We decree a reversal of the trafficking of human bodies that goes on in this nation
That the souls and bodies of men would no longer be sold as merchandise
A turning, a turning
We decree a reversal of evil judges
That there would be righteous judges that rule in the fear of God
And the light will shine upon our pathway

And they say “What is this uproar coming from the Church?”
“Who are these people suddenly awake? We are afraid of them!”
We will join them!
We call in those people on the edges and on the fringes of the Church
We call you in today!
“Take your place! Arise and recover all!”
Let hope rise up in our nation – the confident expectation of goodness of the Most High in our nation today, today, today
We expect our prayers to availeth much today!

What You send out, it doesn’t return to You void
What we speak, we expect it as well
Every good thing that came from You, You have given us to steward and take authority over the things where the evil has come in
We say “No more!”
It is a declaring of truth Lord and we will not stand idol, we will not stand silent for half-truth or things that sound right to the worldly wisdom
Where sometimes Your wisdom seems hard to our flesh but it’s supposed to
It’s supposed to feel hard to our flesh but it gives life to our spirit and we command our souls to praise the Lord
We continue to build off of Your established ways
Your wisdom gives light to our spirit
It is not too hard for us, we resist
We speak to those doors saying “doors open!”
Righteous laws be made today
Speaking grace to the mountain of dissention
Who are you oh, mountain?
You bow your name to the name above every name – Jesus
Paths of reversals accomplished today!
Established through the laws of the land
Laws of righteousness, truth, and justice – established today!
We thank You for a tidal wave of Your favor to go out from the Oval Office even today
Tremendous favor!
That even those that would accuse President Trump now come alongside him
And they go in with him to recover all

And we declare that it is not too late for America
Because the Lord hasn’t said it is over yet
So we keep going with what we were told to do
And that’s take dominion over the evil things that are trying to be established
And we know that those things that look like they are solid that the enemy has built, that they are built on sand
They will not last because they are not built on the rock
And so we come in and continue to declare Your Word
It is like a tidal wave rushing in
You Word comes in and it exposed what things they are standing on
Revealed, showed to be standing on absolute lies
But the truth that is established on the Rock will always stand
It always withstands every storm, every strong wind, every battering of the waves
No, the Word comes in and washes it clean away
Exposing the foundations it was built on – built on nothing

We do not declare from a deficit or defensive position
Coming to you in the name of the Lord our God, the One that finished it all
The King of Kings and the Lord of Hosts is Your name
Coming in the name of the Captain and the King of the Lord of Hosts!
He does the work in our nation, in our nation!
Declaring that the Church operates from a kingdom perspective
You are the Lord of the abundant harvest
Connections and ideas, ideas, ideas
This is the greatest hour of the Church
Let that revelation be seared in her heart today
We will accomplish the finished work
