Prayer Summary for December 17


The following excerpt is taken from John G. Lake—His Life, His Sermons, His Boldness of Faith by John G. Lake:

The Resurrection

When Jesus came forth in the resurrection, something breathed and throbbed and pulsed in Him that had never breathed or throbbed or pulsed before. It was the new eternal life. He used a new vocabulary—the ordinary language was not big enough. He said, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18). Who else in the universe had ever experienced such a thing? None but the Son of God. “ALL POWER” language is Christian vocabulary only. Christianity came from the heart of the Glorified. Christianity is a heavenly triumph. Christianity is one hundred percent supernatural—God possessing man.

Just as God breathed the breath of life into Adam, so Jesus Christ breathed upon His disciples. If He could breathe into them this heaven-born life, they would be heaven-born like Himself. If He could breathe this consciousness of triumph into them, they would become triumphant also. If they could take the deathless life of Christ, they would become deathless likewise. “He breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost” (John 20:22). In Peter’s Pentecostal sermon, he gives a revelation that no other writer gives us. Peter’s broken heart was penetrative. He saw into the glory. He saw Jesus ascending to the throne of God. He saw the Almighty God receive Him at the throne. He observed what took place. He said, “Having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear” (Acts 2:33). He saw Him get the eternal saving marvel for universal distribution to all mankind.

Right then Jesus became the world’s Savior, the Savior of all mankind. He now possessed the saving grace, the Holy Spirit. God had fulfilled His promise. It completed His saviorhood. It made Him heaven’s High Priest. He had qualified as High Priest of things eternal. It was His right now to pour out the Holy Spirit on the world. He came to the balcony of glory and poured out the Holy Spirit on every hungry heart that was ready to receive. They were baptized in the Holy Spirit. So may you be.

The Secret of Power
Luke 24:49, Acts 1:8

He is risen, He is risen! Hear the cry
Ringing through the land, and sea and sky
‘Tis the shout of victory, triumph is proclaimed,
Heralds of God announce it, Death’s disdained.

Shout the tidings! Shout the tidings! Raise the cry
Christ’s victorious, Christ’s victorious cannot die,
For the bars of death He sundered, Satan sees that
he has blundered,
As the shouts of angels thundered, “He is alive!”

Catch the shout, ye earth-born mortals, let it roll,
Till it echoes o’er the mountains from the center to the poles
That the Christ of earth and Glory death has conquered.
Tell the story He’s the Victor! He’s the Victor!
So am I.

For this reason that my ransom He has paid,
I’ve accepted His atonement, on Him laid,
He, the Lamb of God that suffered all for me,
Bore my sins, my griefs, my sickness on the tree.

I am risen, I am risen from the grave,
Of my sins, my griefs, my sickness, and the waves
Of the resurrection life, and holy power.
Thrill by being with His new life every hour.

Now the lightnings of God’s Spirit burn my soul,
Flames of His divine compassion o’er me roll,
Lightning power of God’s own Spirit strikes the power of hell.
God in man, Oh Glory! Glory! All the story tell.

I have proved Him, I have proved Him. It is true,
Christ’s dominion yet remaineth, ‘tis for you,
Let the fires of holy passion sweep your soul. Let
the Christ Who death has conquered take control.

Father, thank You for the revelation of Your power and presence today
Thank You that we are continually filled with more of You
We call this day supernatural!
In these times, You have called us to be filled with Your power to continually contend
Sickness has no strength, lies have no power!
We take our seat in the heavenlies and speak forth Your will!
Lord, we thank You for the blood!
Thank You for the protection that is in it!
Today, we plead the blood over everything we are to do
By Your Spirit, we believe to continually receive greater revelations of Your Word
Taking authority over things that the enemy has tried to bring our way
Pleading the blood over those enemy schemes
Father, we lift up the Church before You today!
Every person is covered in Your blood and is contending and moving forward
Believing for a spirit of contending—for the right way to go
Lifting up ministries that have gone another way—seeing them returning to the original plan
Entering back unto that right way
Declaring a steadiness and strength within the body of Christ!
People and ministries continually contending for the higher way
Things beginning to line up
There is still a lot more in store!
Receiving greater revelation and understanding—that will reach beyond!
Greater manifestations of Your will and plan
We lift all of the pieces and parts
Pulling up doubt, fear, sickness, discouragement by the roots
Calling for a revelation of the assignments
Stepping out of the wrong conditions and stepping into the right ones
Opening up the channels connecting to heaven and the Spirit
Hidden plans and schemes are being uncovered today
The power that is in the name of Jesus breaks every chain of bondage
We give glory to You, Jesus!
Father, we pray for an increase of Your presence that we might never be the same
Change and rearrange us and our lives that we may be saturated in Your power in these days
We receive Your infilling!
We give You all of the glory and praise

A Word of the Lord came forth:

“In the natural, just because it looks one way—looks like it will be that way—it will not be that way in the realm of the Spirit,” saith the Lord. “In the natural things look like they would never change, that they would never be rearranged, but by My Spirit I am saying today they are changing and they will be rearranged. And those chains that you just spoke about they cannot hold you back, for through My blood they have been broken and that takes care of that attack. Removed, separated from under the anointing and power of that name for everyone!

“’So you can say today, ‘There is freedom in the house of God! There is victory in the house of God!’ And ministries where there has been pressure trying to get them to go in another way, by the blood of the Lamb, they have overcome and they will see it in the natural and they will know it that they have won, and victory at last has come!”
