Prayer Summary for Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Ms. Annie led us singing “It is Well With My Soul”

Pastor Ray shared…

It is well, Amen. That is the perfect confession. I have this quote from Keith Moore: “There are only two ways you can live, by faith or by sight.” I like that because when you confess or sing that, it is well. My older son works for Keith Moore and they are working on this project in Branson that is a whole new children’s area. He sent me a picture of this stairway where the kids would come in and go up or down. The graphic on the wall is a confession “I am rich. I am well behaved….” It’s a total confession as they go up the steps. Even if you just got one thing off the wall and said that over yourself… I love that. It’s a total Keith Moore deal.

If you are going up the stairs, you see these huge gears that are lights and they are turning. It’s like wow. Things are turning. Things are changing. “I am well. I am rich. I am well behaved.” Ha, ha, ha. So we have to continually do that and declare it. “It is well with my soul.” Isn’t that what David did? Yes. Amen.

The following excerpt was taken from “Take It, It’s Yours” by Lester Sumrall:

Recognize Your Need For The Church

The most powerful living organism on earth today is the Church—the very Body of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Head of this Body.

“And he is the head of the body, the church: who is beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence” (Colossians I:18).

“Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular” (1 Corinthians 12:27). Jesus Himself described the irresistible strength of the Body.

“I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16: 18).
For many centuries the Church did not fully recognize her indomitable power. But you and I are living in a day when this powerful organism is waking up ready to arise and shine as the prophet Isaiah foretold. (See Isaiah 60.)

We are the Body of Christ, and we must accept our spiritual authority. We must realize that the gates of hell cannot prevail against the Church. As we move together, nothing can stand before us. We can change anything we want to change on the face of this earth.

Recognize your relationship to the Church, and be closely related to Christ’s Body of believers. You cannot neglect the Body of Christ and be strong in the Lord. Your relationship with other believers is very important.

Some people say, “It doesn’t matter if I go to church or not.” That is a lie from the devil. Believers minister to each other. People sitting in the pews have encouraged me as I preached. Something in me rose up as I looked at them. If they had stayed home, I wouldn’t have gotten that inspiration or received that blessing. At times I’ve been so blessed shaking someone’s hand at church that I didn’t want to let go.

People who stay home are selfish. You can never grow in God and be selfish.

“Even when we were dead in sins, [God] hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved:) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:5–6).

We are to sit together in spiritual places in Christ Jesus.

Pastor Ray commented…

Have you ever thought of it that way? We are not just taking our seat alone but we are sitting together in spiritual places in Him. Hallelujah.


Father, thank You for Your written Word
For all of the things that You have said that we have that we can stand on
And we stand on Your Word when we say “Lord, it is well.”
Thank You for what was done on the Cross by Your Son, Jesus
Thank You, thank You, Thank You
Thank You for the members of the body – all of the different parts
We all have a part, each one having steps that must be taken
To enable the body to take the big steps
That we might not judge but walk in one accord
Watch over ourselves, what we say and what we see and what we believe
Thank You for the power of Your precious Holy Spirit in this hour
We receive by faith, take to ourselves and enabling power
An increase in that this morning that is causing us to advance
We take those territories that we are to take because of Your authority that is in and working through us
Thank You for Israel
Thank You that we have a President that would stand up and declare, we are connected throughout all of eternity – just be bold about it in the face of all of the junk
Thank You, Father, we know that’s an answer to our prayers
Thank You for Changes – rearranging things
Even now today we cover our President, we cover all those in Italy
That You are enabling him, he is equipped, he is anointed
Thank You for the doors that will be open, for the connections that will be made all throughout this whole journey throughout other countries
We are all members and parts of Your body
We pray the blood covering over the body
Every member, part, leader in the church, pastors, ministers, prophets
All of the 5-fold gifts that they might come into a greater flow in Jesus’ name
Thank You for leading and directing us
Revealing unto us our steps, our days, weeks, and months
New territories or new realms of responsibility
We receive what You have already given, we take it by faith
We keep our eyes looking up, hearts drawing up, our words lifting You up
Not leaning on our own way, but leaning and trusting in You
All of the doors, all of the opportunities, all of the ways
Entering and going through in Jesus’ name
Answers, help, solution, wisdom in Jesus’ name
Cooperation with You
We take hold of our assignments, believe not to miss one
By the blood we have overcome
Through the blood we have already won
Thank You Father!

No, in Jesus’ name, no way!
Things are not set in cement and unable to move
But everything is subject to the Word of God, to words declared by faith, and subject to change – everything. Words of the enemy that would try and rise up even in this city, Minneapolis, would try and rise up against the plans of God, are subject to change and being rearranged and turned. So, we declared this morning an entrance into change the world doesn’t know anything about but that through the Church, not just this church, but the body, what took place last month in the center of the city will come to pass. These words that were declared here in Minneapolis over our cities, Minneapolis, St. Paul, these things are coming to pass in Jesus’ name.

It is new, new territory
It’s a new revelation of God’s authority
It’s a march, these are steps, these are details that are being worked out right now!
We are moving, these cities are moving more in God’s supernatural way!
We draw the blood like a line – we are not going that way but we are going this way in Jesus’ name!
These cities are moving in God’s perfect way!
Old ways – no! We are not going back, we are moving ahead
We are not locked into the past – we are locked into the future
Calling things that are not as though they absolutely were
We put an end to some things
We put a stop to some things – words
Standing against words that come against the Word of God
Declaring they will come to nothing
They shall not have entrance; they shall not have a voice
They shall not bring about change in the wrong way in Jesus’ name
Standing at the gates of the cities with our arms folded declaring
These cities are moving for God!
These cities are open to the Word of God!
For the Power of God is operating in these cities!
Jesus is Lord over Minneapolis and St Paul!
Oooohh! We are open for more!
Holding fast for greater!
Covering our cities with the blood for protection
No weapon formed against these cities shall prosper
Hidden things be revealed in Jesus’ name
Be shown for what you were, come to nothing in Jesus’ name

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. 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.

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…

Thank You, Father, that Your Word is true
That You are working on behalf of us, Your body
We exalt and magnify Your precious name
We love You and we love Your ways

Ms. Annie led us in singing….

♪ If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray
They will seek My face, turn from their wicked ways
If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray
I will hear them and I’ll heal their land

Father forgive us as in Your presence we bow
Father forgive us; You forgive us, forgive us in Your presence now

Father hear our prayer, Father hear our prayer, hear our prayer we pray in Jesus’ name
Father hear our prayer, and heal us, we pray in Your presence now

We are Your people, we are Your people, we come to You and in Your presence we bow
We come to You, we cry out to You, hear our prayer in Your presence now

You said Lord You will hear our prayer, You said You’ll heal our land
You promised You would hear our prayer and You will heal our land

We say Jesus is Lord over America, we say that Jesus is Lord over our nation now
Jesus is Lord, Jesus is Lord, Hallelujah He reigns over our nation now! ♪

Continued Praying…

We do humble ourselves over our country, over our states, cities
Thank You, Father, for that precious blood covering
For every border and every state covered in the blood of Jesus
Individually, corporately together as the body
That’s pushed back or pushed out!
But this new is pushed into that we might walk it through
For the Church! For the whole body!
Cooperating with Your ways, Father
Just as it is written, we overcome by that precious holy blood

Pastor Paul shared…

Sometimes when the children of God are up against the adversary, up against the enemy that has come on purpose to put out their lights so to speak, or silence them forever, and they have no other resource in humanity to help them out of the circumstances they find themselves. So, what they do is they go back to their Creator and they begin to list to the Creator the things that He has said, to remind Him of His covenant. It is not to say that God is deaf or hard of hearing but they are reinforcing what they believe and trust, the authority of what has been provided them through the covenant. And they go to the Lord and say “Lord, has the Lord not said.” So, I am remembering concerning the body of Christ, concerning this church, that God did You not say why did the heathen rage and the people imaging a vain thing? So everyone that is rising up to undermine the work of God, did you not say that You would build Your Church and the gates of hell will not prevail against Your Church?

So, we are just reminding the Lord of what He has said. If the adversary is imagining a vain thing or is trying to undermine the Church, then we have the supremacy in Christ by the Law, the covenant which He has given to us which is the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, to say “No, that will not come to pass.” That every one that has planned or orchestrated a devise against the body of Christ to undermine its effectiveness, Lord, You have to turn their council to foolishness. Yes, because He does sit in the heavens and laughs and has them all in derision.

Father, we are saying as a united body, Your children, Your offspring, the one You have chosen to dwell in, we are calling on You on behalf of our nation and on behalf of our Church. And You have said that You will build Your Church and the gates of hell shall not be able to prevail against the effectiveness, the forcefulness, the expunction, the dominion, the liberality, the power, and the enforcement of Your Word through the Church. Principally You have given the Church the authority to triumph.

So, Father, we condemn every tongue of the adversary
We take the power from it and loose its union
Commanding disassociation and confusion among their accord
We belittle it and we cancel the ordinance and cancel their work in the name of Jesus
We are asking You for the release of the angels of God to turn their council to foolishness
And put the fear of You and the dread of You that You have put upon us on them in the name of Jesus
We have a dread for the God of hosts, the One we worship and we reverence You
But, Father, for those that are against You, You have already said You will send hornets their way
So I am asking You, Father, put the dread and the fear of You in their house
Let them quake because of Your name
Let them tremble at Your ordinance that they would know not to touch Your anointed or do Your prophets no harm in the name of Jesus
And instead of their touch against us, expand the Church
Use it as a catalyst, use it, Father, as a springboard
Bring an impetus in it that will propel us into the destiny of the Lord
I am grateful, Father, because Your Word is forever settled in heaven
So, Father, we say it is done, accomplished and settled in the name of Jesus
