Prayer Summary for Wednesday, May 3, 2017


Thank You, Father, for the direction of Your Holy Spirit
That we can pray, declare, and see things change
Because we have declared words that You have given us to declare
Words from heaven
Thank You for the flow, the rivers of living waters that come through us
We take nothing for granted – worshiping and honoring You this morning
Lifting up Your name
Humbling ourselves before You
Thank You for Your mercy, Your goodness, Your grace
Your kindness, Your faithfulness, and Your love
Thank You, thank You, thank You, Lord!

Scripture focus…

(1–3) The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live.

(4–7) He wants not only us but everyone saved, you know, everyone to get to know the truth we’ve learned: that there’s one God and only one, and one Priest-Mediator between God and us—Jesus, who offered himself in exchange for everyone held captive by sin, to set them all free. Eventually the news is going to get out. This and this only has been my appointed work: getting this news to those who have never heard of God, and explaining how it works by simple faith and plain truth.

(8–10) Since prayer is at the bottom of all this, what I want mostly is for men to pray—not shaking angry fists at enemies but raising holy hands to God. And I want women to get in there with the men in humility before God, not primping before a mirror or chasing the latest fashions but doing something beautiful for God and becoming beautiful doing it. I Timothy 2:1–4 (MSG)

Pastor Ray commented…

It’s so easy to get over in that way instead of lifting holy hands to God. It reminds me of when Sandy was coming home yesterday afternoon and she called me and said she was on Weaver Lake Road. She said this huge pickup truck pulled up beside her and slammed on the brakes and hit the horn. She was like “What, did I do something I wasn’t supposed to do?” And then all of a sudden there were two more vehicles and it was a three vehicle road-rage deal all the way down Weaver Lake road. But they were slamming on their brakes, revving up their engines, hollering at each other through the windows, shaking their fists, just like this. They were not holding up holy hands, okay. I told her to just back off and get away if she could get away because that can also, when people get like that, you don’t know what’s next. It’s sick.

So, we don’t want to be shaking our fists at one another. We want to be lifting up holy hands, worshiping Him, lifting Him up.

In the Amplified it reads:

(1) First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men,
(2) For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way.
(3) For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior,
(4) Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth. I Timothy 2:1–4 (AMPC)

Tomorrow is the National Day of Prayer. That’s a law. We will have always National Day of Prayer. It’s the law. Don’t you love it? Of course, not everyone accesses it for themselves. But I want to remind you again that there is the large Pulse Unite event in downtown Minneapolis by the Stadium.

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.

Smith Wigglesworth prophesied before he left that revival in the earth would come not just from Pentecostal churches but it would come from main line denominational kinds of churches and ministries. That’s just one of the things that would begin to take place and it would be bigger, so big you wouldn’t be able to describe it.

It is beginning to happen. When I read that, I thought about tomorrow evening that there will be men, women, and children, people from every different denomination gathered together in one accord for one thing and that is to pray over our nation. That alone is miraculous. I can’t wait to get there. Hallelujah. Let’s lift Him up, Ms. Annie. Let’s worship the Lord a little bit. It’s the best of the best, prayer through worship, connecting to heaven. Thank You, Father.

Ms. Annie led us in worship…

Pastor Ray shared…

I was just reminded of the prophecy that was spoken years ago about where 35W and the River cross, in that area, that there would be a move of the Holy Ghost up here. I was just thinking about how close the area where the prayer will be lifted tomorrow evening is to that area. It’s just a couple blocks. It’s right in the area. And then also, years ago George Washington Carver spoke at Macalester College just on the other side of the river. And he prophesied and spoke about a revival that would sweep across the United States, and it would begin up here. Let’s not take those things lightly. Sometimes we forget about words that were spoken by the Spirit. So we believe we are stepping into these things that were declared that would come from up here through You, Lord.

Continued praying…

We are bringing it to our remembrance and then reminding You, Lord
These things were said out of a Holy Spirit given access to heaven
They were spoken forth years ago so we hold our faith, hold onto these things
We believe even know, May 2017, we are stepping into new territory
Things are changing, there are all kinds of changes that still need to come forth
But we step by faith even out now and declare it
These things are coming to pass in Jesus’ name
An outpouring, the move of Your precious, precious Holy Spirit
We want to be in it, Lord, we want to be a part of it
We lift it, we declare it again!
It’s not just about us, it’s not just about our church or churches
But it’s about Your Church and it’s about the body!
Declaring revival to Your body!
Being revived, restored
Entering into the places and realms that You have called us to enter into
New days, new times, greater signs
New wonderful happening in and through Your precious Spirit
We know it’s not a game, we know it’s Your Word
You said You would pour out Your Spirit
It would be the former rain and the latter together
We are holding fast for that rain of Your Spirit – For more! For increase! For revival!
For restoration! For wholeness! For wellness!
Declaring momentum now in Jesus’ name – the Church is waking up!
We believe we are entering into that one accord – unity
Believing for it!
New places, realms where we have never been before
Days, weeks, months, into years – the outpouring of Your Spirit
A steady advance, a great expectation in Jesus’ name
We expect it to be so!
We lift it, we lift it
Seeing it with the eyes of our faith!
We erase doubt – it’s coming to pass!
We speak to ways of opportunity
Speaking over the whole body
Boundaries be pushed out, stakes pulled up
It’s a mandate!
It’s okay!
Entering in by faith!
We speak over the multitudes
Come up come forth come into the light
Souls! Out of the darkness and into the light
Laborers, anointed words, utterance by Your Spirit
Yes, a break out into the new ways, new days
It’s like a march, steps ordered by heaven
Obedience is better than sacrifice!
Open heaven, openings in Jesus’ name
Each one, each one
See it, receive it, expect it
Openings, and open heaven over Washington DC
Presence, mercy, and the grace of God over Washington DC

Pastor Ray commented…

Just think about it, picture it, the Capitol, the White House, all of the offices and the positions that are in places of authority really in this nation. We are preparing for the prayers right now, praying out for preparation for tomorrow. There will be some of those absolute negative, Devil directed words that are so negative. They will be shut down in Jesus’ name. By the power of the Holy Spirit, under the anointing of the Holy Spirit things are changing and we declare tomorrow it will be bigger than it has ever been before. The call, the prayers, the hearts of the people, Lord…

Continued praying…

And those places, Lord, we thank You for an abrupt change of course
Those paths of reversal are abrupt and immediate
We see those courses turning quickly, abruptly
Interrupting every evil plan!
An abrupt change of course!
Over the world, over every election, the elections in France
Over our country – an abrupt, coming in and interrupting, change of course today!

♪ Changes, changes, changes
Things are moving and turning into new
Things are moving, tuning and changing into new
In Your name, In Your name, In Your name
Changed in and by the name of Jesus ♪

Favor, such favor
It goes right before us as members of the body
Some things are being restarted that have been let go
A restoration in some things that have been lost or not thought about
Restored, absolutely restored, restarted, and renewed in Jesus’ name
There is a strength through it that every doubt, every fear, deception, deceiving ways, even depression has to go this day in Jesus’ name
In the power of the blood and name, the authority
Fear, lack, weakness turn around into supernatural strength in Jesus’ name
Turn your face to the face of grace
Know that Jesus is here
To see the hand of the Lord upon You to see you through
With Your head held high
More Jesus, more Jesus
Rise and take our place in the seat of grace
The love of God that can never be replaced
I call you out of your hiding place
The future is in sight!
That’s every unknown dark places, positions of absolute darkness coming out into that light

Ms. Annie led us in singing…

♪ Oh My light is shining down in the darkness now
It’s shining through you, through My Word now
And the darkness shall not overcomes it
Let My light so shine, let My light so shine, let My light so shine through you

For you are a city on a hill
A light that shines bright in the darkness
So let your light so shine, let your light so shine
Let your light shine among men that they receive Your goodness
And give glory to Me
Oh, when they see, oh, when they see that light shining bright
They will know it’s Me, They will know it’s Me
Shine bright through thee! ♪

♪ Walking in the light of God
Walking in the light of God
Walking in the light of God
We are walking in the light of God

Living in the light of God
Living in the light of God
Living in the light of God
We are Living in the light of God ♪

Continued praying…

Walking in the light
Looking really bright
We are winning every fight in God
Because Jesus put away the night

And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness cannot overcome it
Being really bright
Smiling with great delight
Winning every fight
Because Jesus won the fight for us
That’s a great picture of the Church
