Prayer Summary for Wednesday, July 5, 2017


We lift and glorify Your name this morning
We are blessed; we are happy
We are strong in the power of Your might

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

In Jerusalem
When Peter and John went up to the temple, it was the Name of Jesus that healed a man who had been lame from birth.

ACTS 3:6,16
6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH rise up and walk…
16 And HIS NAME through faith IN HIS NAME made this man strong…

Notice that it was the Name of Jesus that was called into question and feared by the religious leaders of the day (Acts 4: 10-12), because it is in that Name that believers have authority over the devil.

In other words, the disciples were teaching about the power and authority invested in the Name of Jesus (Acts 4:15-20). The Name represented all the authority of Jesus and all that He accomplished when He arose victorious over death, hell, and the grave.

7 … the WORD OF GOD increased; and the number of the disciples MULTIPLIED in JERUSALEM greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

It’s interesting that when the Word of God increased, the number of disciples multiplied. If believers really want to do much damage to Satan’s kingdom, they should get out and preach the Word.

Did Paul Try To War With Strongholds Over Cities?

Let’s see what the Apostle Paul did as he traveled and came into contact with strongholds in certain cities. After all, this great man of faith wrote much of the New Testament. If pulling down strongholds over cities through warring tongues or screaming at devils is a scriptural practice, surely Paul said something about it, or he practiced it in the cities where he went.

Paul in Damascus
Did Paul try to pull down strongholds over the city of Damascus? No, immediately after his conversion, Paul began to preach about Jesus. Jesus Christ was the focus of Paul’s teaching, not the devil and not strongholds.

ACTS 9:20,22,27,29
20 And straightway he PREACHED CHRIST in the synagogues, THAT HE IS THE SON OF GOD…
22 But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, PROVING THAT THIS IS VERY CHRIST…
27 But Barnabas took him [Paul], and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had PREACHED BOLDLY AT DAMASCUS IN THE NAME OF JESUS…
29 And he spake BOLDLY IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, and disputed against the Grecians… Notice that Paul magnified and lifted up the Name of Jesus Christ. It’s the Name of Jesus that breaks strongholds in people’s thinking and in their lives. Paul taught people to exalt Jesus’ power and majesty.

Paul in Philippi
Did Paul try to pull down strongholds over Philippi? It was in Philippi where Paul had to deal with a demon that was stirring up trouble through a young damsel.

ACTS 16:16-18
16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. AND HE CAME OUT THE SAME HOUR. An evil spirit was using this woman to hinder the disciples’ ministry in this city. This woman had a spirit of divination or fortune telling, and the spirit in her knew who the disciples were. But notice that Paul only dealt with the spirit that was causing this woman to continually cry out and cause a disturbance – he didn’t deal with any strongholds over the city.

Continued praying…

Thank You, Father, that we have the power of the Holy Spirit
Not backing down or away
You told us we can do all things through You
Every knee will bow to the name of Jesus
Being moved only by what He said
Led and directed by the power of the Holy Spirit

Ms. Annie led us singing the name of Jesus…
