Morning Prayer Summary for Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Pastor Ray…

All sickness, all poverty, everything that is negative can be traced back to the Devil. All of the lies, all of the things that are happening today, coming against our country can be traced back to the Devil. But he is defeated. He is the biggest fake that there is. We all know that.

One of the pastors here had an appointment yesterday with a Muslim couple. The husband had three visions in which Jesus had appeared to him and said “I am the way.” His first reaction was “I thought I was doing the way.” He did go on to accept Jesus as the way but he didn’t know anything about the way or the Bible; he needed to be taught. So, the couple met with the pastor yesterday for an hour just talking about what the Word says. Love it!

Kenneth Copeland had a prophecy that thousands and thousands of Muslims are coming to the Lord because they are seeing Him. He is appearing to them and they are finding out that the way they were in was not the right way. That’s happening today.

We went over it yesterday, there is a large Muslim event going on today in Minneapolis. You know we are not overcome by what is happening. We are not in fear about it. We know this city is going God’s way. We know that and it’s why we have continually declared it year after year after year after year “Minneapolis, St. Paul, Minnesota is moving God’s way.” So, nothing is changed about that.

Scripture focus

I love how Romans 9 reads in the Message translation. It starts out questioning God, not happy with who I am or how I am created.

(20-33) Who in the world do you think you are to second-guess God? Do you for one moment suppose any of us knows enough to call God into question? Clay doesn’t talk back to the fingers that mold it, saying, “Why did you shape me like this?” Isn’t it obvious that a potter has a perfect right to shape one lump of clay into a vase for holding flowers and another into a pot for cooking beans? If God needs one style of pottery especially designed to show his angry displeasure and another style carefully crafted to show his glorious goodness, isn’t that all right? Either or both happens to Jews, but it also happens to the other people. Hosea put it well:

I’ll call nobodies and make them somebodies; I’ll call the unloved and make them beloved.
In the place where they yelled out, “You’re nobody!” they’re calling you “God’s living children.”

Isaiah maintained this same emphasis: If each grain of sand on the seashore were numbered and the sum labeled “chosen of God,” they’d be numbers still, not names; salvation comes by personal selection. God doesn’t count us; He calls us by name. Arithmetic is not His focus.

Isaiah had looked ahead and spoken the truth: If our powerful God had not provided us a legacy of living children, we would have ended up like ghost towns, like Sodom and Gomorrah.

How can we sum this up? All those people who didn’t seem interested in what God was doing actually embraced what God was doing as He straightened out their lives. And Israel, who seemed so interested in reading and talking about what God was doing, missed it. How could they miss it? Because instead of trusting God, they took over. They were absorbed in what they themselves were doing. They were so absorbed in their “God projects” that they didn’t notice God right in front of them, like a huge rock in the middle of the road. And so they stumbled into him and went sprawling. Isaiah (again!) gives us the metaphor for pulling this together:

Careful! I’ve put a huge stone on the road to Mount Zion, a stone you can’t get around. But the stone is me! If you’re looking for me, you’ll find me on the way, not in the way. Romans 9:20–33 (MSG)

Pastor Ray…

He is on the way, He’s not in the way. He is the WAY! We are not a nobody. We go over this all the time. We are nothing but in Him, we are definitely something. When He was raised up, we were raised up with Him and we’re seated in heavenly places now, today. Spiritually speaking, we’re up above all of the debris, all of the junk, all of the doubt, all of the sicknesses in Jesus’ name.

The following excerpt was taken from The Believer’s Authority by Kenneth E. Hagin:

The door to exercising authority pivots upon two phrases Paul prayed for the Ephesians: ” … and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places” (Eph. 1:20), and ” …hath raised us up together” (Eph. 2:6).

Meditate on these two prayers. Learn to pray them for yourself. Feed on their truths until they become a part of your inner consciousness. Then they will dominate your life. But don’t try to accept them mentally; you’ve got to get the revelation of them in your spirit.

Notice that not only is Christ seated at the right hand of the Father, above all the powers in Satan’s realm, but we’re there, too, because God hath raised us up together.” Not only have we been made to sit, but notice where we are sitting: “Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion….” (Eph. 1:21).

Pastor Ray…

So, be sure we take that seat, just see ourselves seated
Above confrontation, doubt, lack of any kind
Thank You, thank You, thank You! Change, change, changing things around
Thank You for the house of God, for the presence of Your Spirit
We worship You, welcome Your presence here in this chapel
Welcome You here in our heart, with open hearts
Thank You Lord, thank You, Father
You’ve called us, You’ve anointed us, You’ve equipped us
You put deep down within us gifts that are just not natural
Yes, You’ve given us natural giftings but you put within us spiritual gifts that no man can give and no man can come up with
You put it within us to carry out Your will and Your plan right here, right now in this land we are living in, the ground we are standing on
We lift up the church this morning, the body of Christ
Holding and lifting up all of the ministers, pastors, heads of ministries
For the Word to go forth with great power under the anointing
That hearts are being opened by that precious holy Word
Thank You for the move of Your Spirit in the body of Christ today; in these hours that we are living in
We are not dry; we’re continually renewed and refreshed!
We are anointed! We can do all things!
Not over in the realm of nothing but over in the realm of something
Many things, we see that they are not yet, but we call them as though they were
Ha! Ha! Ha! Hallelujah!
Sadness, all sadness has to get out of the body!
Go! Leave! It’s like debris!
In the name of Jesus, we call the body up and call the body forth
Baptisms of the Holy Ghost in every stream, every river – hallelujah!
What the Catholic Church needs to do, we believe they will do it
There has to be a switch, there has to be a change, there has to be revelation to bring them up and bring them out into the realm to be free!
Out from under the religious way and up and over and into God’s perfect will and perfect way!
We pray over the pope and all those in positions of authority in the Catholic Church
We just pray over them! We cover everything in the past with the blood of Jesus
We hold and lift them up! The leaders!
Take authority over religious spirits – that has to stop! That has to cease!
That has to be put away! Religious spirits “Get out!”
Stop your working! Stop putting people to sleep! Stop sending people to hell in Jesus’ name
We pray for a mighty revival, an outpouring of Your Spirit in the Catholic Church!
Oh my! You did it before! Your Spirit moved across the Church!
Many, many, many, many were born again and baptized in Your Spirit
If you did it then, Lord, we know You will do it again!
Hallelujah! Oh, I thank You!
Miracles, signs, and supernatural wonders beginning to pop up in Jesus’ name!
Their bells will begin to ring again but they will ring out for the glory of God!
They will ring out for the presence of the Holy Spirit
Hallelujah! Oooooohhh My!
In our own cities: Minneapolis the Basilica; in St. Paul the cathedral – change!
Let it echo through those buildings – change in direction, a change in revelation, a change, a turnaround!
Eyes be opened up, yielded to the power of the Holy Spirit
Holy Spirit, You are welcome in these places, welcome in these churches
Making a great difference in the cities when these things begin to break loose, when these ministries begin to be stirred
Be stirred up! Be changed up! Oh, miracles, miraculous changes!
How is that going to look, Lord? How can that be broken through? How can those…?
By Your Spirit – we get it!
By the anointing of Your precious Holy Spirit, through the blood of the Lamb and the name that is above every other name
We break those holds in Jesus’ name like we break those chains
The bondage to the religious way, we break that in Jesus’ name
Become free! Come free! Rise up! Be free!
Thank You, Lord – we rest in you

We are not coming against people; we are coming against the enemy that’s moved many into a religious way
We read about it this morning, the Israelites got into a religious way and missed it
For many who have missed it, they are about to be exposed to it
Open up the gates! Open up the doors, open up the windows so to speak
Freedom, freedom not just in these cities of course

Ms. Jeani….

Oh the earth is groaning, the earth is moaning for the Spirit of the Living God to show up in us
Sons and daughters of the Most High – show up! Rise up!
Can you hear the earth groaning right now at US Bank Stadium?
We were there first – the blood, the blood, the blood
We expect great things to come out of US Bank Stadium today!
We expect right things to erupt out of US Bank Stadium today!
The blood, the blood cries out on their behalf today, today, today!
On behalf of Ishmael who God made, Father, we thank You that Your goodness manifests today
You astonish us, You astound us, even the believer believes

Pastor Ray…

Okay, I was just reminded. So, they said concerning today, “Everyone is welcome, Christians, Jews.” That means to me, the Holy Spirit. The Holy Ghost is welcome in that place today. And when the Holy Ghost comes on the scene, things change: eyes begin to open up, and hearts can be changed, rearranged, and opened to the right way.

Ms. Jeani…

Thank You, Father – those people have come a long way to find the answers
They have come a long way to find God
Holy Spirit, You are there at the ready
Ready to meet them, ready to answer every heart’s desire
What better place to meet You but in America
America, we proclaim, we declare you are “One nation under God!”
And people come here to meet You!
And when they meet You, they are changed forever!
And that would be now, that would be suddenly, that would be immediately
For the times that we have said that are coming, are upon us NOW!
They are upon us today!
Today, a supernatural wave of signs and wonders we have never witnessed or encountered
The heart of the Father poured out over America! Poured out over US Bank Stadium
Those are Your children!

Pastor Ray…

♪ Oh we lift up the new days, different ways
New plans, new ideas, creative ways
Oh You’re good, You’re good, You’re good
For the Lord, You are so good
Hallelujah ♪

Ms. Jeani…

Your love, Your love, how You love them!
You see their hunger! You see their hunger!
They are searching, they are wanting You
Your goodness that causes them to change, that causes them to rearrange who they thought You were
The personal God, the God that freed!
Jesus is not the Prophet, He is Your answer, He is Your friend, He is Your Savior
Jesus, meeting you there
Holy Spirit, ministering the goodness of Abba – it’s a set up!
It’s a set up for a Holy Ghost party!
We thank You for it!
We rejoice that they are all in one place to encounter YOU!

Pastor Ray…

♪ So, we welcome Your presence there inside and outside
In the building and outside of the building – we plead the blood of the Lamb
Thank You, Lord, for the power of the blood, thank You for the blood
Where there looked like there was no way – You are the way maker ♪

Thank You, Father, for Your promises
They are new, they are Yes and Amen
They are for these days we are living in
The past is over, we are living, moving, going forth into what You’ve called us to
The Church is on the increase, it is not on the decrease
The Devil has overplayed his hand in many ways, in many areas
And the Church is waking up, the Church across the United States of America is on the alert
Because the enemy has overplayed his hand in many, many, many different ways
Many are spoken about on the media every day – the enemy’s plans, the enemy’s ways
For the Church is rising up and it shall continue to rise up and do what the Church has been intended all along to do
To rise up and declare this is the way this nation will be, this is God’s plan, this is God’s will, and God’s way!

We pray over our president this morning, lift him up, hold him up
Praying over his mind, over his body – he’s whole, he’s healthy, he can do what You’ve called him to do, he’s equipped, he’s anointed, he will do it! He is doing it!
Thank You for the supernatural Holy Ghost given strength from heaven to continually contend in the face of adversity, in the face of doubt, of lies, of inaccuracies
He shall continually rise, take that seat in heavenly places high above and do what God has called him to do!
There is no weapon formed against him that can prosper in Jesus’ name
There is no weapon formed against the plans, the purposes, the changes, the rearranging – no weapon formed against these can prosper because we see it is making America the way America was made to be!
Hallelujah! Things are rising up! The economy is on the increase!
Changes have continually come forth and they shall not be stopped!
But they shall come forth even in a greater way!
Hallelujah! State by state all across the United States – changes
Thank You, Father
We pray that more voices, seemingly they are in a closet somewhere, they are not speaking what they really, truly believe
We pray that they will come out, they will rise up, and speak forth what the Bible says, what God has told them that this nation should be like
Out of every realm of influence, every mountain of influence we declare!
Oooooh! Change! Change! Change! Change! Change! Changes!
Oh my! Hallelujah!

We lay back so to speak, we rest in Your presence, in Your goodness
Oh we thank You
Today, for a refreshing, a fresh lifting, for pray-ers everywhere all across the globe
That they would not come under, be oppressed or depressed, but that they would come up
Pray-ers would move up in the strength from heaven and pursue, no matter what land or country they are in, out on the field somewhere, missionaries – we lift them up, hold them up before heaven today
And declare “Strength!” to come your way
Strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, not your might but His might
Strong in the Lord, healed in every way, financially equipped
An abundance of provision to do what God has called you to do
He knows, like we read this morning, we are just not a number
He knows our names, He knows the gift, He put it inside of us
He knows who we are, who we have been planned to be
What our plan is and how it should be carried out
We lift up keys, heaven given keys that open doors to bring about heaven’s activity on this earth
Changes, one nation after the other after the other after the other
Changes, moving more and more and more
God’s perfect way in these days and these times and these ways

Ms. Jeani…

I hear Him saying “These are the days. Today is the day, these are the days when the enemy is out of the way. So, stop thinking he is not out of the way. Go as if these are the days. Go as if this is your day! Go as if I direct your steps! Go as if I’ve blessed the work of your hands! Go as if My Word is true! Go! These are the days. Those things that you have contended for are now finished. Keep moving and expect more! Expect more! Declare more! More! These are the days!

We tell hesitation to “Go!” anything old, “No!”
Finished, His finished work, moving in the finished work
I hear Him say “If your dreams don’t come true, neither do Mine! The dreams I put in you belong to Me! They are My dreams! Let’s go! Let’s do it! Make My dreams come true!”
If they don’t come from you, the don’t come true for Him
We are anointed, we are resourced
It is time, for these are the days

Scripture focus…

Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?
There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands. Wild animals will say ‘Thank you!’ Isaiah 43:16-20 (MSG)

Pastor Ray…

Do you know what that does inside of us? It brings joy. It just automatically brings joy to know that in the dry places, there is a way! He made the way and He’s making the way continually. It started at the Cross.

This is not a house of cards. It’s not going to fall over or fall in when the wind blows! But when the wind of the Spirit blows, that house is increasing more and more and more and more and MORE! And the JOY of the Lord, it is our STRENGTH!

Ms. Jeani…

It is the seventh day! When the walls come down and we go in and take it!
Every hindrance reduced to rubble! Finished!

Pastor Ray…

For this is not the end, for all of us it’s just the beginning
It’s the beginning of the fullness; it’s the beginning of the outpouring
It’s the beginning of revival; it’s the beginning of the last great AWAKENING!

Ms. Jeani…

Father, I thank You that the time has now come when we run to the Church for wisdom! How, Father, do we handle all of the resources? How do we manage all of the favor with You, Holy Spirit? Because we have far and above, all that we have asked or thought, because the earth is crying out for us to receive and believe for the sake of the world or the sake of the dream in Your heart, Father.

Even today, Father, we repent on behalf of the Church for not acknowledging the dreams that You have put in our hearts are Your dreams. And we receive! And to honor You, we receive to make Your dreams come true, we receive.

Pastor Ray…

Before you said that, I had this song come up in my heart.

♪ I receive, I receive, I receive, and I believe
Oh, for I receive and I believe
Ooohh we receive, and we do believe (ha, ha, ha) ♪

When it comes time for the turn, we will see it before we get there and we will know which way to turn. When the time comes to just stop for a minute, we’ll know when to stop and we’ll know where to stop. When the time comes to run, we’ll run. When the time comes to speak, we’ll speak. And when the time comes to sing, we’ll sing! And when the time comes to speak to our feet and say go, we will speak to our feet and they will go! So, today we are calling them forth; saying to our feet “Go forth in victory!”

No, don’t turn around but keep moving, keep upward bound for you have never been called to be in the same old way. You’ve never been called to go back that way. You’ve been called to go on God’s highway! And that highway moves up and it moves up and it moves up and it’s higher and higher as you go! Contend for it. Believe Me for it. Watch for it and stay on it.

♪Hallelujah, everything is alright (ha, ha, ha)
Everything is going to be alright, it’s alright right now
We are not taking the ditch, we’ll not fall
He is the way, He is the truth
You are the way, You are the truth
Ooooh miracles ♪

Continued praying…

Signs and wonders and supernatural events unfolding every day
Oh, what a glory it is and what a glory it shall be
Wonderful access to heaven’s ways on earth as it is on heaven
Wonderful, blessed, holy, holy, holy God
We worship You, lift up Your name
No, we don’t want to stay the same
We’re moving – when You move, we’ll move
That Spirit of Seeing and Knowing is operating in and through us
All the time, every day – we see things, we know things
Speaking them forth, calling them to be and they are
Hallelujah, glory to God! Thank You, Father!

Thank You for Your presence, sweet, sweet presence of God Almighty
Holy Spirit, all throughout this day we know You are with us
We welcome Your presence, we make much of it
Thank You for the blood of Jesus that was shed on Calvary
We overcome through that blood and will continually declare and testify about it
And be aware of that presence of Your Spirit all around us and through us everywhere we go
Thank You for it in Jesus’ name
