Morning Prayer Summary for Friday, July 06, 2018

Pastor Ray shared…

Yesterday I read about the Argentina revival in the 1950s. I read the testimony about how that revival started. A missionary from the US spent many years trying to get his church going and nothing was happening. He got the revelation that the one thing he didn’t do was to pray. He began to pray eight hours per day! Every day. He did that for six months and during that time he didn’t hear a word from the Lord. Nothing. Then he heard one word from the Lord. “Continue!” That was it. He kept on praying. Eight hours a day. After several more months, the Lord impressed him to start an evening prayer meeting. He questioned the Lord if he should do that because he knew that only the old ladies would show up and they would only watch him pray. He announced that he was going to start a prayer meeting. Three older ladies showed up and watched him pray for four hours! Afterward, he asked the ladies if they got anything from the Lord. One of the ladies said she felt a strong urge to go up and knock on the wooden table. But she didn’t do it because she thought it was weird and that it’s wasn’t the Lord. They came back the next night. He prayed for four hours and they watched him pray. Afterward, did anyone get anything? The same lady said she got the same impulse to knock on the table but she didn’t do it. They came back the next night and the same scenario unfolded. The same lady got the same impulse to knock on the table. You can sense his frustration because she keeps getting the same thing but she refuses to act on it. He said, “We’re all going to go up front and walk around the wood table and we’ll each knock it.” He thought if they all knocked on the table that it would help her to do the same. After they all knocked on the table, she got up and knocked on the table as well. The Spirit of God came and all three ladies were filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak in other tongues. The presence came powerfully and that’s what triggered the revival in Argentina where Tommy Hicks did these massive meetings in stadiums. Things are still happening in Argentina today.

I found this article. This isn’t steps you do to get revival. This is what the church there did during the revival. It’s interesting.

The following are some of the principles that God ordained for us to follow in the Argentine church:

In His church, God desires private and group prayer where believers allow the Holy Spirit freedom to move in and through them as He wills for “where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Cor. 3:17)

In His church, God, who is the Head, plans to function as the head in a very practical way and to assume the guidance and leadership through the Word and through the leading of the Holy Spirit.

In His church, God desires the Holy Spirit to operate through the leadership of divinely given ministries, rather than men trying to establish ministries that God has not ordained.

In His church, God desires repentance to be a state rather than an isolated event or experience, and He desires freedom for the expression of that repentance, be it in private contrition or even in public, if the Holy Spirit so indicates.

In His church, God desires that the development of the fruit of the Spirit balance the manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit—that there be full transformations in lives rather than only initial experiences of saying the sinner’s prayer.

In His church, God desires to provide financially through faith and prayer rather than through the operation of programs, appeals, raffles and such like.

In His church, God desires a full and free operation of expression in praise and worship in their various phases. He wants the spirit of prophecy to rest upon His people (for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”) and ministry to be in the prophetic realm. He wants time to work and does not wish to be rushed, nor required to quickly do all His work in one brief hour. He wants His church to wait upon Him—to spend much time in His presence.

In the Argentine church, God taught His children to move into His presence through worship and praise with continued cleansing of their hearts so that this worship and praise did not become a religious emptiness. This freshness of the manifestation of His presence in worship and praise can only be maintained through a definite working of the Holy Spirit in prayer.

Pastor Ray continued…

Have you ever been in worship and you’re just going through the motion? You’re not really “in it.” You’re not really worshiping Him. That, to me, that’s where religion tries to get in or the familiarity with it all. We don’t want to do that. We want to be familiar with Him but we want it to be fresh and new and real.

I thought we should let Jesus pray for us the prayer He prayed for us in John chapter 17.

Jesus Prays for You

“And I ask not only for these disciples,
but also for all those who will one day
believe in me through their message.
I pray for them all to be joined together as one
even as you and I, Father, are joined together as one.
I pray for them to become one with us
so that the world will recognize that you sent me.
For the very glory you have given to me I have given them
so that they will be joined together as one
and experience the same unity that we enjoy.
You live fully in me and now I live fully in them
so that they will experience perfect unity,
and the world will be convinced that you have sent me,
for they will see that you love each one of them
with the same passionate love that you have for me.
“Father, I ask that you allow everyone that you have given to me
to be with me where I am!
Then they will see my full glory—
the very splendor you have placed upon me
because you have loved me even before the beginning of time.
“You are my righteous Father,
but the unbelieving world has never known you
in the perfect way that I know you!
And all those who believe in me
also know that you have sent me!
I have revealed to them who you are
and I will continue to make you even more real to them,
so that they may experience the same endless love
that you have for me,
for your love will now live in them, even as I live in them!”

I saw this while Barb was praying. I saw that each one of us is a key. We are all keys. And there are locks that only our key will open. They’ll open, I’ll call them doors. They’ll open that lock for us that we might receive and go through into the new and give forth the flow of the Holy Ghost for others to even begin to see, that they are also a key. Then they’ll begin to unlock the things that they’ve been called to unlock. Just like the woman was a key for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Argentina. One lady following what was in her, like a key, that the Spirit of God gave direction to go ahead and do. Today we receive it for ourselves, to continually be the key that we’ve been made to be, that we will open those things that need to be open. To do our part in the plan, bringing forth what God has called the Church to bring forth.
