Morning Prayer Summary for Tuesday, May 8, 2018

Ms. Annie led us singing Jesus You Will Never Let Me Go

Pastor Ray…

Hallelujah, we are so blessed that we are not just on our own
And Jesus will never let us down
Even when He sees we have a frown (ha, ha, ha)
He’ll turn it upside down because He is our help
And by the Spirit, our Comforter too, our strengthener
And the anointing is resident in each one of us to call things that are not as though they absolutely were
And continually contend for those things that we see in our spirit that by the Spirit have been revealed to each one of us individually but then corporately together as members of the body
There are things too that we have been called into
Hallelujah, thank You for it, Lord

Scripture focus…

Psalm 42
(1) As the hart pants and longs for the water brooks, so I pant and long for You, O God.
(2) My inner self thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and behold the face of God?

And the people were say “well, were is your God?” They were just giving him grief.

(5) Why are you cast down, O my inner self?

Have you ever talked to yourself like that? We have gone over this before but we could say to ourselves “Stop it!” And he did. He went on to say.

…And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, my Help and my God.

And he goes over that two more times.

(11) Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the help of my countenance, and my God.

I guess he had to do it three times until he really got it.

(5) Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, my Help and my God. Psalm 42:1-2,5,11 (AMPC)

Do you believe it? Alright.

Proverbs 11
(24) There are those who [generously] scatter abroad, and yet increase more; there are those who withhold more than is fitting or what is justly due, but it results only in want.

What we sow, we are going to reap. When we sense within ourselves we are down. Then we speak to ourselves and say “Get up!” And we get ourselves on the Word and we stay up.

It’s like that with prayer. We scatter our prayers abroad. I am reminded of a prophecy Pastsy Cameneti gave here a few years ago. She said that up out of this chapel there is a tower that goes way out and it is sending out prayers and it’s like electricity almost. Out they go.

It’s not all about us and this church, individually or corporately. It’s about all those out there that we can reach. So we scatter abroad and increase more. And then there is the opposite.

…there are those who withhold more than is fitting or what is justly due, but it results only in want.
(25) The liberal person shall be enriched, and he who waters shall himself be watered. Proverbs 11:24–25 (AMPC)


Thank You for the rivers of God, thank You for the waters from heaven
Thank You for the abundance that is within each one of us
And when we get together there is even a greater abundance
Of sending out supplies, prayers, words, the presence of God, the glory of God, the anointing of God
Oh, thank You for it!
Thank You for Your Word, Lord, the ministry of Your Holy Spirit today
Thank You for Your Words that are always lifting, always encouraging
Setting us up into a position of greater authority, momentum, encouragement, and direction in Your plans and Your purposes
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

Ms. Annie led us singing As The Deer Panteth

Pastor Ray…

I would like Pastor John Matthews to share a couple things about a trip he was just on.

Pastor John Matthew shared…

It guess it was maybe my 75th trip to the Ukraine. It feels more like a second home than it does like a missions trip. We’ve been partners with Ukrainians for many years in helping them open churches and encouraging them. Sometimes I think we are more like cheerleaders (ha, ha, ha) pray-ers and cheerleaders. So, this was a special time for me. This particular trip was gathering. Our base of Krivoy Rog which is south central Ukraine. It’s a city built on iron mines and built on bringing the criminals and all of the people that nobody wanted and they’d ship them there and they’d work in the iron mines. And that’s actually the foundation of the city. So, the Ukraine was known for the worst drug addiction, problems like that in all of Europe. And Krivoy Rog is known as the worst city in the Ukraine for all of that.

So, these churches have been places of refuge for broken people coming to the Lord, and I don’t know if we ever met anybody coming to the Lord who came from a healthy family. Every family has people in prison and people dead, people on drugs and that’s kind of the story of what it’s been the last twenty some years. And so it requires a whole lot of God, of the Spirit and of the Word. This time was with people from the base city. We have about twenty some churches of praise in that city. It’s a city that is a hundred miles long because it was built over 18 iron mines so it is a necklace of communities. So, we have to have quite a few churches. Most of them are small. The main church is about 1,000 people. And then we have some dozens upon dozens of churches sprinkled around Ukraine.

For twenty years, I have been teaching the covenant of the blood of Jesus as foundations. Whether it is leaders or new Christians or whatever because… well Ukraine is a very religious place, Christian but religious. Although most of the generation who has come to the Lord there in the last 20 some years are not people with religious backgrounds but it’s usually parents or grandparents or it’s the orthodox general culture that was in the background. So, there’s a need for people to get founded on something other than religious tradition. You know you can quickly go into that even as a new church and you are just doing tradition.

So, it’s been our privilege, always teaching and praying over people that God would renew their hearts and minds. And of the prayer of Ephesians “Lord, that You would give us a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of the Lord. That our eyes of our heart would be opened and that we would know the hope of Your calling in our lives and the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in us and the surpassing greatness of Your power toward us who believe.” And so, lots of prayer like that coupled with teaching and then you can only teach so much. Then you got to start praying for people that God would do miracles inside of them.

You know sometimes people get on the foundation of “hallelujah, I’m saved, I’m forgiven, I’m on my way to heaven” but the reason the New Testament letters are written is so that we know to follow through on that life. I like especially the apostle Paul with the Galatians. He said “You foolish Galatians. Who has bewitched You? You began in the Spirit. Are you now going to become mature by the flesh.” And so that’s the general problem where church is everywhere. That we go so far in the grace of God and then we step into something else, trying to preform or get better and then the Church ends up in the wrong place. And so, we had the joy of being in the letters of Paul; especially the book of Romans because there is a way of grace from here to heaven, hallelujah and it’s called walking in the Spirit and united and abiding with Christ. So, we just spent lots of time with that with those who came from around the city. I was there about 9 days and that’s what I did. My greatest joy is to be with hungry people and teach the Word of God and then pray over everybody for miracles (ha, ha, ha) hallelujah.

Pastor Ray…

It’s hard to know the magnitude of that whole deal. When you said you have been there 75 times. I haven’t even been to Iowa 75 times and I lived there (ha, ha, ha). It’s awesome though. I just love that there are that many people that are hungry and they come. And for you to minister to them the Word and then pray over them and God does the work. That’s true everywhere of course. We can all get over into some religious deal. I hate it. And any one of us that have been in religion are thanking God we are not in it any longer. Right? That we are free of it.

Pastor Jim shared a really good scripture in the middle of his message last Sunday on the blood, the authority that is in the blood, sprinkling the blood, overcoming by the blood. And then he just threw in this scripture.

By abolishing in His [own crucified] flesh the enmity [caused by] the Law with its decrees and ordinances [which He annulled]; that He from the two might create in Himself one new man [one new quality of humanity out of the two], so making peace. Ephesians 2:15 (AMPC)

So wherever we see this, just people in the flesh, getting in the flesh, want to… It’s how I was raised, you feel like you have to do something. You have to work it out. For me, you get into the confessional. You know what I am saying. We do confess. I am not making light of confessing but…

My mom, I never saw her do anything really wrong but she would go to confession and spend an hour in there while there is a line of people waiting. And as children we were like “Come on mom!” “Get out of there!” I mean she just wanted to be right and you know she is in heaven now. She was hungry for Him and she received Him.

Still like you said, people will receive the Lord and be joyful but then eventually down the road they can start stepping back into just like Paul said, back into the old religious things. We are not going to do that. We are not moving back into the things that were already finished or annulled. We know people like that. They have not been able yet to get out of standing under the law and trying to fulfill it. It is impossible! Anyway, that’s another message.

Ms. Jeani….

When you talked about your mom confessing for an hour to get to holiness but now we confess of His goodness, His greatness and our righteousness through Him, that’s our confession.

Continued praying…

Hallelujah, thank You, Father
We are so blessed; we have so much comfort because of Your precious Holy Spirit
More than enough courage and strength to overcome every obstacle that jumps up and tries to stop the plan of God for us that we might not carry it out
But no, the Devil and all of his stupid ways, stupid plans… he’s already been defeated
You are defeated, you are a defeated foe!
And we’ve overcome through the precious blood
Not that we’re somebody great, somebody big but we’ve overcome because You overcame
And the blood is working today
It’s working in our cities, it’s working in all of the schools, the businesses
Out on the streets, colleges, universities – it’s working!
The blood is working today! We declare the blood of Jesus all over these places here in Minneapolis
St. Paul, we cover with the precious holy blood of the Lamb
We pray over the leaders, those in positions of authority in our cities
That would be the mayors, those that are in authority in our state capitol – our governor and all those under him
We plead the blood, lift them up, pray for supernatural wisdom
That even though they may not know, that their hearts could be moved, moved over
That our cities would continually move in the direction of God almighty!
Thank You, Father
Our nation, our president, our leaders, positions of authority in our nation
We lift before heaven this morning – calling for the blood of the Lamb to cover them
Thank You for those that do not know what to do, that they will suddenly receive direction from heaven and do what they have been called to do
Thank You for the move of Your precious Holy Spirit, revival, for the awakening, for the outpouring of Your precious, precious glory, the former rain and the latter rain together
Thank You for what You’ve done in the United States in years and years and years past
But thank You, Father, for what’s about to happen in this year, in these years that we are living in now
For an awakening! Waking up the Church! The churches – every denomination, whatever they might be
Awakening them up to You! Waking them up to Your Word! Waking them up to Your plans!
Thank You, Lord, nothing missing! Shalom – everything made whole, everything restored
Things that were lost, things that were stolen, brought right back again multiplied seven times greater in Jesus’ name!
That has to be so, that has to come, that must be restored in Jesus’ name
Wholeness, health, restoration of finances
The seeds that were sown! Oooohhh! Multiplied over many times greater!
Aid from heaven, direction from heaven, help from heaven,
We enter on into it, we receive it by faith, we accept it through faith
Expectation about the things that are to come – hallelujah!
Thank You, Father, for the US Bank Stadium event next week in Jesus’ name
Oh, Father, we lift it before You
Thank You for the picture it shall be – abundance, abundance, abundance
Joy – Your joy, Your strength, Your power, Your anointing – hallelujah!
Thank You for what’s happening today – outreaches, Your Word going forth more and more
More and more hearing about what will take place
Getting on board, getting in the boat, more churches, as we declared the other day, a minimum of a thousand churches joining together in one accord!
Oh, no division will enter the stadium! But it will be unified!
One group of people under God! Every form of division cannot enter in Jesus’ name!
You’ll get the glory, Father! No man will get the glory but You will get the glory, Father!
Hallelujah! Things turning out right!
Answers, help, finances, connections, resources of every kind

Ms. Annie led us in singing in the Spirit…

Pastor Ray…

I saw this in my spirit. I saw the assembly, the people coming, the whole nine yards and I saw victory. And when we say victory, we are saying in everything to do with it. Victory in the plan of God, victory in the momentum, victory in the joy, the souls being saved, victory all around. So, I want to shout victory seven times toward the stadium, toward everything that still needs to be altered or changed or other connections that still will be made, over every word that will be spoken, every song sung, every musician, all of the people gathered together in the name of Jesus. Okay, we are going to do it one, two, three and shout victory seven times.

(Pastor Ray had us stand and turn to the back of the chapel which faces the stadium)

One, two, three “Victory! Victory! Victory! Victory! Victory! Victory! Victory!
Hallelujah! Ooooohhhh!!!! Glory! Glory! Glory!
Thank You for the victory! Hidden things will be revealed
We cover the whole thing with the blood
All of the plans, all of the connections, all of the people, all of the children, all of those assembled together
No weapon formed against it will prosper in Jesus’ name
So we are protecting the whole thing with the blood this morning

Ms. Annie led us singing We Have Victory Through the Blood

Pastor John Matthews…

I had a vision concerning the stadium while we were praying. Suddenly I was aware of the angels arriving and in whatever locality, they were setting up around the stadium and it all lit up. There was a whole lot of local demons that were cowering and starting to shrink to find some darkness. But what struck me, as the angels arrived already organized… It was like they were already dispatched. They knew exactly what they’re doing. Hallelujah. And you realize when you go through the Word, wherever you find angels, you find prayer. They are always connected. The body of Christ is praying unusually. We could keep those demons in the darkness and keep an extra dispatchment of angels in our city if we just keep praying.

Pastor Ray…

I like how you referred to those demons as those “local demons” (ha, ha, ha). They are cowering and shrinking and moving out. Hallelujah! That’s good. Thank you for coming this morning.
