Prayer Summary for Wednesday, March 1, 2017

Pastor Ray shared…

Say this after me: “I am healthy, I am strong, I am happy, and I am wealthy.” Okay thank you for coming today (ha, ha, ha). We are blessed. Hallelujah. It’s good.

Did anyone watch the speech last night? Wow. You can see that people are praying and covering the President. For him to deliver the way he delivered that. Sheww! We turned it on because we wanted to see the first part but we couldn’t stop, you know. It was blessed. I felt in a way it was visionary. It was almost prophesying about our nation. This is the way it will be. This is going to happen. And I could almost see Pastor Mac standing up there and telling us in the same way, declaring the vision. Without a vision, what happens? We perish but with a vision… Sheww!

I saw the most anti-other-side person this morning on the news but he was being the most positive… I thought I was seeing things. He has always been negative and against most of the things we would believe for but I believe it’s the anointing. The anointing, it breaks yokes. It drains swamps (ha, ha, ha). Hallelujah.

Scripture focus…

10 1–5 Remember our history, friends, and be warned. All our ancestors were led by the providential Cloud and taken miraculously through the Sea. They went through the waters, in a baptism like ours, as Moses led them from enslaving death to salvation life. They all ate and drank identical food and drink, meals provided daily by God. They drank from the Rock, God’s fountain for them that stayed with them wherever they were. And the Rock was Christ. But just experiencing God’s wonder and grace didn’t seem to mean much-most of them were defeated by temptation during the hard times in the desert, and God was not pleased.

6–10 The same thing could happen to us. We must be on guard so that we never get caught up in wanting our own way as they did. And we must not turn our religion into a circus as they did-“First the people partied, then they threw a dance.” We must not be sexually promiscuous-they paid for that, remember, with 23,000 deaths in one day! We must never try to get Christ to serve us instead of us serving him; they tried it, and God launched an epidemic of poisonous snakes. We must be careful not to stir up discontent; discontent destroyed them.

11–12 These are all warning markers—DANGER!—in our history books, written down so that we don’t repeat their mistakes. Our positions in the story are parallel-they at the beginning, we at the end-and we are just as capable of messing it up as they were. Don’t be so naive and self-confident. You’re not exempt. You could fall flat on your face as easily as anyone else. Forget about self-confidence; it’s useless. Cultivate God-confidence. 1 Corinthians 10:1–12 (MSG)

So, my very dear friends, when you see people reducing God to something they can use or control, get out of their company as fast as you can. I Corinthians 10:14 (MSG)

Pastor Ray shared…

Have you ever had to do that in your life? Where you thought somebody was on the right track, speaking the right things, saying the right things, when all of a sudden… I know we had that happen years ago. We had to separate ourselves from some believers because we couldn’t stand the negative commentary every single time we would get together. We had lived close together. Our children were friends with their children. And we had to get out of there because we just never were lifted up. We were brought down.

We should never see it in the opposite way. Instead of us serving Him, like Him serving us. No. That is absolutely reversed and it’s not right. These people, children of Israel in the wilderness, even though God supernaturally brought them through the water, fed them like the Word says every day. They were fed from heaven. They all ate the same thing. They all drank the same thing. Still, they were discontented because of their time in the desert. They started going off in wrong kinds of living.

So, for us I believe we stand at a “T” in the road. You know you can go right and you can go left, just a turn, a change. And we have lifted up, we have prayed and continually confessed change over our country, change over the church, and change for us individually. We cannot take credit for it. I believe He put that on our pastor’s heart and when we get together for church prayer Sunday evenings, we’re still lifting up these same things, pressing ahead for the change in these three areas. So, let’s not get weary in well doing or dissatisfied with the change that happens from Him. Are there changes that could happen that are not from heaven? Yes, there are. But we are led by the Spirit. We are directed from our hearts. You know how the Bible makes it so clear that if it is from your heart, the heart felt prayer.

Our President made that statement. He wanted what he said to be from his heart. If we just stay in our hearts and we are directed by the Spirit which we are called to do… It’s not just a request. We must be yielded to the Spirit, directed by the Spirit.


We worship You this morning, Lord
Looking heavenward from where all our help comes from
You meet all our needs
We are happy, blessed, healthy, wealthy – our needs our met
Our sufficiency is in Him – He’s our rock, our foundation
Let’s not go another way but continually lifting and magnifying
Taking our seat in heavenly places
Lifting up others
Those that are in positions of authority in our country
Lifting and covering them with the blood of the Lamb
So that it will go well with us

Ms. Annie led us singing “Hallelujah, Thank You, Jesus”

A word of the Lord came forth…

I keep hearing “You have not come this far to turn around or sit down. But you have come this far to rise up and press out and move ahead into territories you have never been before. You have not come this far in your walk with heaven to take a step over and fall in the ditch. For you have been given and you have had it placed within you, a call from heaven. So, see yourself fulfilling the destiny that was placed within you before the beginning of time. Your mama didn’t put it in there. Your daddy didn’t put it in there. God placed it within you. You’ve come this far so that you can go further and fulfill your race, contend, command, and demand; stand against the enemy and command things to work the way heaven has predestined them to work (ha, ha, ha). So, don’t quit! Don’t give in or give up! But contend even more today because there is more to contend for!” Ha! Ha! Ha! Hallelujah!

Ms. Annie led us singing…

♪ We’re going higher
We won’t draw back in fear
We’re going higher – all the way! All the way in You!
We are well able, well able to go up
And possess the land
Because it’s not by our own power
It’s by Your mighty hand

Holy, holy, holy is our God
And You are mighty, mighty, mighty
The weak things in You are stronger than the strong things of man
And we are going up, going by the power of Your mighty hand
Not in our own selves, but we are going in You, with You, for You, by You
Hallelujah! Oh, hallelujah!

Gory, glory, glory
You are so beautiful, the way is clear, the plan has been made
The steps are planned oooohhhh!
The steps that You ordained
You created them and every part of every step shall be fulfilled
Because we are moving higher

I’d rather move on up than move on down
So we hold fast, we hold on to You
Holding on to Your will and Your plan
And You are holding on to us ♪

Continued praying…

You know we can see better from these high places
You can always see further the higher you get
Forget about the past
For the higher way is heaven’s blast
Shake the dust off your feet
And take another breath and another step
Ever more closely to the finish line, to the well done
Into your destiny that takes you all the way through to your final destination
By the oil of the Holy Ghost, you are brand new
Every part is functioning just like it was created to be
So we are moving up and we are seeing further out ahead
There is no fear!
We are not going back—We can’t go back!
We are loving You, we love You!
Your mercies are new today
We have an unction; we’ve been given a call
Do a check up and make sure you are full and flowing out
Because you are moving higher into uncharted territory
New days of authority
New ways for the anointing to flow through you
It’s a steadfast way, covered in the blood
Taste and see that the Lord is good
Oh, what a feast, what a victory day
Come on up where the weather is clear and you can see
Where the power of the Spirit of God is leading you
It’s a clear river
Water of life – going higher and higher

It’s not just a fun thing to say. It’s a declaration for each one of us to move and we are not moving down and we are not moving just same old, same old, same old. But we are moving higher and higher. It’s a declaration by faith that we personally and corporately are moving up. And things will change as you change even those around you that know you will change too. Why is that? Because they see you moving up higher!

Going up, moving up, stepping up, changing up
It’s going to work out and it’s going to work out right
We see things other people do not see
We know things other people do not know
Because You’re working in us and working through us
And that’s bringing us up. Just see it!
As we say it, we see it
The more we say it the more we see it
The more we see it the more we say it
The sheep are moving higher!
The body is moving up!

Ms. Dar singing by the Spirit…

♪ We are following You, Lord, all the way
Higher places in You, Lord, seeing things we’ve never seen before
Beautiful places, powerful places, mighty places
Places higher in anointing, healing, and victory now
You’re leading us and we are following You
You are calling us and we are coming up
Higher places, we are hungry, Lord, for You
Those higher places, we contend for them now

We are breaking through because You are our Master of breakthrough
Nothing will hold us back or down
We are free in You, Lord – all in for You, Lord
The fullness of Your love, bringing change and transformation
Bringing us to that harvest Lord, souls coming into Your kingdom, Lord
Because we are coming into those higher places, doing things Your way and not our way
Your ways are higher than ours, but You are bringing us up into those places

We are following You, praising and thanking You all the way up
All the way up, we are worshiping You
Dwelling in Your presence like never before
Changed and transformed—more like You and less like ourselves
We are decreasing, Lord, and You are increasing in a mighty way
Becoming more like You in a mighty way

Now is the time, this is the day
It shall come to pass, sayeth the Lord
Your desires are My desires
My desire is to bring you up higher in Me
Higher in plenty of provision, higher in protection and healing
Higher in strength and victory now
Take My hand and let Me lift you up
We cry to You, Lord, “Lift me up, lift me up”
No other place to be, Lord, but high upon the rock in You

Let Your power be released in those high places
Miracles, sayeth the Lord, miracles coming in those high places
See them now, sayeth the Lord, the miracles now
The signs and wonders I promised and planned
It’s in those high places in you and through you, sayeth the Lord
Bringing you up higher—it shall come to pass
Because your desires are mine, sayeth the Lord ♪

A word of the Lord came forth:

For I am giving you a new address as you move further up in me, 777 Holy Ghost Blessed Street (ha, ha, ha). Every time in the natural when you move up to a new place, you move into a new address. But this is not a natural move. Yes it does include the natural, but it is supernatural! And it’s 777 Blessed Holy Ghost street! Hallelujah!

Continued praying…

New responsibilities, changes on every side
New assignments that require our hearts to speak them forth
You know heartfelt assignments from heaven
We receive heaven’s assignments in Jesus’ name
Individually, corporately, and as a nation – Holy Ghost given heaven’s assignments in Jesus’ name
Casting the vision, speaking out the vision and calling it forth!
Hallelujah! Ooooohhhh!

We are just hammering some nails in – pounding the posts out there
We pull them up but we put them out – expanding the tent!
Taking authority and taking the territories
They are bigger, higher, wider, further, grander, and greater!
Staying with it, staying in it, staying on it
Sometimes you just have to watch and see it

Ms. Florence shared…

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! Psalms 139:17 (KJV)

Before we were formed, we were a thought in God’s heart and mind. His thoughts towards us today, they are precious. They are vast and if we could but get the thoughts of God and what He is saying to us today, we forget what was and we reach out to what is. And so, Father, we just thank You for the precious thoughts You have toward each one of us. And I know because of your thoughts, we are but clay in Your hands. And You are conforming, You are transforming us into the very thoughts You had even before the foundations of the world. And I thank You, God, by Your Spirit, You are transforming us by Your thoughts every single day. And we pray, Father, the vast sum of thoughts that You have for each one of us, we would apprehend that. We would have that in our hearts and in our minds. That we would be transformed every single day as we meditate on these thoughts that You have for us, Father.

I bless You, Father, because we are being transformed day by day by day as we sit in Your presence. We are but grasping the vast thoughts that You have for each one of us, Father, for the body of Christ. And what is in Your heart, Lord? That we would be conformed and transformed into the image of Your very Son. I thank You for the thoughts that You have for us today. We are grasping them God, and we are being transformed into the image of Your Son to declare the Kingdom of God on earth even as it is in heaven. Hallelujah.

Continued praying…

Transformed and rearranged
We are not moving just into a remodel, we are moving into the new
Even a new model – it’s a greater change
We are moving up and stepping into it
The more we say it, the more we see it
The more we see it, the more we walk into it

Ms. Annie led us singing…

♪ Forgetting those things that are behind us
Pressing on toward the mark
And going higher and higher and higher every day
We are going higher and higher on His mighty wings
Higher and higher and higher

All things He has planned for us we are taking hold of everything
Going higher into things that we never thought of before
Going higher, He has set before us an open door
We are going through it, we won’t hold back
Because we want to go higher and higher and higher in You, Lord
Forgetting those things in the past, pressing on to our mark
The mark of the prize of the high calling of You in Jesus
On His mighty wings of Love
They carry us, they carry us higher and higher in You

Eye has not seen and ear has not heard
Neither has it entered into the heart of man
All those high things, those high things, Lord, that You have planned
Oh, but You have revealed it to us by Your Spirit

We are going higher, we are following Your lead
And we won’t be afraid because when we are following You, You meet every need
Higher, higher seated with You in heavenly places
You called us with Your blood, You raised us up and made us Your own
We are moving higher in You, in You, that’s when we are home ♪

Pastor Ray shared…

You know how if you are ever on Facebook, a lot of times in the first part of the day it will come up where a year ago on that day you posted this picture or whatever. It came up on mine this morning a picture of a Ferris wheel in France I posted last year. There was a festival in Nice and they had this huge Ferris wheel. But the picture I took was almost standing at the base of it. It looked like it was monstrous. In my spirit I had this, “Let’s not get off the ride.” And then Ms. Annie started singing “Higher.” So I kept seeing up, moving up higher. We are moving up higher. It’s not in our own strength we were singing, praying. It’s Him all the way. He is taking us higher up, and we will see things we haven’t seen before the higher we get. That is the spirit of seeing and knowing, and it will take us all the way through. Alright, thanks for riding along this morning.
