Morning Prayer Summary for Tuesday, February 12, 2019

Pastor Ray… Giving honor and worship and praise to the One who deserves it all, the King of kings, Lord of lords, our Lord, our Savior, Waymaker, Provider. Thank You, Father, for the power of the Word. You laid it out for us, spoke it through the Prophets, the apostles, all those in the past so we have a foundation right now for us. We know what Your Word says. We want to know more what Your Word says. But we are looking always for greater revelation about it. And I know that You give it to us. You do bring things to us that we need to have brought to us. You reveal things we need to know now in the days and the time or the season we are living in right now. We are so grateful for it this morning. We honor You. We have a thankful heart for everything You’ve done. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You we are alive, we have Your Word, we can stand on Your Word, and know that You’ve never changed. We are so grateful and thankful that You are an unchanging Father, that Your Word is still the same and it will always be the same. Circumstances are changing, times are changing, days are changing but You never change. So, thank You, thank You, thank You for just the revelation, greater revelation of all the things that You have already done for us and things that we don’t even know that You did. Thank You from, I guess we could say, the bottom of our hearts. From our hearts we thank You, and we honor You, worship who You are, magnify Your name. Thank You for the power of Your presence, the strength, the anointing that You put within us. And that anointing is resident there and really it’s just waiting to come out, waiting to be used, Your anointing, the anointing within each one of us. Thank You Holy Spirit for Your presence in us and then how You work through us. Hallelujah. I want to share what I had written out concerning the word “routine” and how we use the word. A lot of times we like to get into a routine. It’s comfortable for sure. I wrote this down as a note in my Bible near Hebrews 12.
“We take revelations and then keep doing them until sometimes they become religious rituals. When we start to pray, let’s remind ourselves God is anything but routine. He is unusual, surprising, creative, and original. If we fellowship with Him, our prayer life will be that way too. Every day brings new adventures with Him!”
We get revelation and often we’ll keep doing the same revelation until sometimes it just becomes a religious ritual. I hate that. It doesn’t mean that the revelation isn’t true. It just means how we use it, how we take it and so easily get into a religious ritual. And so I just wanted to remind us that when we start praying corporately, we are all in this together but God the Father, Holy Spirit, is not routine, He is anything but routine. And I looked at it like He is unusual, He is surprising, He is creative, and He is original. I like that. He is original (ha, ha, ha). He is not boring and there are things that He does every day and as we yield to Him, He’ll do it through us! And they are not routine deals. Most time they are creative, they are surprising, you know, unusual. So, if we continually turn our eyes to Him, looking to Him, looking on His Word, eating His Word, feasting on it, fellowshiping with Him, then our prayer life will be that way too. It will be unusual. It is to me. A lot of times in here, I will have to go back and read what we did pray because we don’t always know what it is that He has put in here for that particular day. Every day, to me in Him, it brings new adventures. It’s not natural things but natural things are affected by Him and through Him. It goes along with Hebrews 12 and I will read just a portion of it from the Message translation. Scripture focus… Discipline in a Long-Distance Race (1-3) Do you see what this means-all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running-and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed-that exhilarating finish in and with God-he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls! (4-11) In this all-out match against sin, others have suffered far worse than you, to say nothing of what Jesus went through-all that bloodshed! So don’t feel sorry for yourselves. Or have you forgotten how good parents treat children, and that God regards you as his children?… (12-13) SO don’t sit around on your hands! No more dragging your feet! Clear the path for long-distance runners so no one will trip and fall, so no one will step in a hole and sprain an ankle. Help each other out. And run for it! (14-17) Work at getting along with each other and with God. Otherwise you’ll never get so much as a glimpse of God. Make sure no one gets left out of God’s generosity. Keep a sharp eye out for weeds of bitter discontent. A thistle or two gone to seed can ruin a whole garden in no time. Watch out for the Esau syndrome: trading away God’s lifelong gift in order to satisfy a short-term appetite. You well know how Esau later regretted that impulsive act and wanted God’s blessing-but by then it was too late, tears or no tears. (22-24) …All you’ve come to Mount Zion, the cj where the living God resides. The invisible Jerusalem is populated by throngs of festive angels and Christian citizens. It is the city where God is Judge, with judgments that make us just. You’ve come to Jesus, who presents us with a new covenant, a fresh charter from God. He is the Mediator of this covenant. The murder of Jesus, unlike Abel’s-a homicide that cried out for vengeance-became a proclamation of grace. (25-27) So don’t turn a deaf ear to these gracious words. If those who ignored earthly warnings didn’t get away with it, what will happen to us if we turn our backs on heavenly warnings? His voice that time shook the earth to its foundations; this time he’s told us this quite plainly-he’ll also rock the heavens: “One last shaking, from top to bottom, stem to stern.” The phrase “one last shaking” means a thorough housecleaning, getting rid of all the historical and religious junk so that the unshakable essentials stand clear and uncluttered. (28-29) DO you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander. He’s actively cleaning house, torching all that needs to burn, and he won’t quit until it’s all cleansed. God himself is Fire! Hebrews 12:1-11a, 12-17, 22-29 (MSG) Pastor Ray… Thank You, Father, for the fire of the Holy Spirit. You said when we were baptized by Your Spirit, we would be filled but we would also be set on fire. It would be a filling but it would also be fire. And so we believe for an even greater… just like a torch that You would ignite, that we would be ignited by Heaven’s fire enabling us to do what You have called us to do here in 2019. Thank You for fire. Thank You for direction. Thank You for revelation concerning the things that we are to do. Thank You. We believe to not miss a step, one detail just like Jesus did all along the way to the final destiny where he said “It is finished.” We believe that our feet are directed from heaven. We believe our hearts know and our ears hear what You’ve called us to do in these days. The words that You’ve called each one of us to speak forth, the details, the alignment, the things that need to be lined up now for these last days and last hours. Thank You. Thank You, Father. We declare this morning under the anointing of Holy Spirit that those that try to come against and make light of what You’ve said in Your Word, those that try to render Your Word inoperative, those that lie about it, those that say it’s not true, that in Jesus’ name these hindrances, these bumps along the road will be taken out of the way! And we declare “Enemy, Devil, get out of the way in Jesus’ name!” We speak life, health, help over the body of Christ, every member, every one that’s called You King of kings and Lord of lords. Hallelujah, thank You, Father. We purpose to cooperate, we purpose in our hearts. We know there will be and we know there is a shaking but we know we will not be shaken away. We are standing strong on what Your Word has said and entering on into new days, new opportunities, and even new ways! Thank You, Father! You are showing us, You’re continually revealing unto us the things that we are to do! We bend our hearts before heaven, bow before You, honor, exult, and magnify who You are! We declare over this church, Living Word Christian Center, is overcoming! This church is going in the right direction. This church is prospering in every single thing we put our hands unto, in its finances in Jesus’ name. We call for the angels, ministering spirits, and loose them to go. Go forth! Bring forth the increase in Jesus’ name, resources of every kind, finances, money, ideas, plans, wisdom from heaven, more and more and more. Go! Go forth! We loose you! We ask you to go and bring it in, bring it in corporately and bring it in individually. We take hold of it by faith. By faith we see it, we seize it. We expect it to be so. We believe for the increases. We believe for more! We believe for greater! We speak over the numbers. And like You said by Your Spirit a couple weeks ago “the numbers will add up!” Hallelujah! Glory! Oooohhh! More and more and more and not just adding up but multiplying many times greater! Hallelujah! A turn, a turnaround, a complete turnaround in Jesus’ name. Steady, so we will stay steady, we’ll stay moving, we’ll stay declaring, we’ll stay believing, we’ll stay in great expectation about what You’ve done but about what You will do and about what will come to pass! Hallelujah! Oooooh! Every limitation, get out of the way in Jesus’ name! Thank You, Father, for Your great body, Your whole body! Coming up on some new things, coming up on some new ways, coming up on some uncharted days! Coming up on some new! Oh my! Hallelujah! Thank You for the new, Lord! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! We push out in Jesus’ name, push those borders out further than they have ever been pushed out before. We pull up stakes and we push them way out and put them way out in Jesus’ name. Further and further and further we go! We’re growing! We’re increasing! The body is increasing! There is momentum in the churches in Jesus’ name. We pray over head pastors in Jesus’ name, our pastors, Pastor Mac and Pastor Lynne, over pastors of other ministries; we lift them up this morning. Keep the blood working and covering them in Jesus’ name and declaring this morning that no weapon, none, not any, no weapon formed against them will prosper for they shall do what they’ve been called on to do. There are connections from body to body to body to body. We open it up! We declare a moving along in the same. We’ll not separate ourselves and stay in just one way. But we are open to the fullness of Your Spirit. More and more and more… details, we hold up those details, Lord. They are ideas, they’ve been hidden but this is the time and this is the hour for these things to begin to come to pass. And the wisdom from heaven and the understanding from heaven and the revelation from heaven, we pray over things that are new, places, areas, realms where we have not been before in Jesus’ name. The preparations, Lord, we prepare by Your Spirit. We pray out those things that needed to be prayed out. What have you said? What are You saying? What is Your plan? What are the ways You are calling us to? And those numbers we lift them up! We pray increase over them, increase in the numbers in Jesus’ name. And those numbers that we are not so much aware of or even how much or how they should be, we lift them up, unknown areas and regions and realms where we have never been to before! Now is the time for it! Ms. Jeani… If you knew it wasn’t far off, would you reach! When you know you are meeting someone, when you know you have an appointment, you get up! You get ready and you go! Church, “Get up! Get ready and go for your appointed time is now!” Those things are within reach! Father, we reach! We reach! We take! We receive! Your Word is the hammer that crushes all resistance! Tick-tock! Tick-tock! The clock does not decide. The clock does not decide. My Word has already proclaimed it! My Word has already attained it! We reach, we get up, we go because the appointed time is now! Your appointed time isn’t out there. It’s right now. It’s right now. The clock does not decide. We see the Church caught up with Jesus. We see the Church anointed, appointed, moving in her calling. Church, rise up! Get up! With joy, with joy! Father, we thank You right now that in our weakness, You’re strong. We thank You right now that in our weakness, we are boundless, that in our weakness, we have limitless energy because in our weakness, You’re strong! In our weakness, we get up because in our weakness You’re strong! In our weakness, we attain! Because in our weakness You’re strong! You’ve done it! You did it! We get up! We move! We move! We go out! We go out! We go out supplied! Living Word, You go out supplied! You go out resourced! We see Living Word resourced! We see Living Word as a resource to the world! We see Living Word as the place with the answers. We see the nations coming to Living Word because she rises up, because she shines, and nations come to her glory. The hub for America, the place to be, the place to receive, Living Word Christian Center. Every church in the Twin Cities, arising, getting up, coming together! That would be today. That would be right now! Right now! Is not My Word like fire? This is the Lord’s declaration? His Word is like fire. It burns away the dross. It burns away anything in us that keeps us from attaining, that keeps us only maintaining. We move, we move right now from maintaining to attaining. Right now we are moving. My beloved it is right there for you. The wait is over. Your only wait is to wait on Me. Wait on Me and like a hammer that crushes the rock of resistance, My Word for you is a hammer that crushes the rock of resistance. Resistance, you’ve been crushed! Hindrance, you’ve been crushed. Delay, you’ve been crushed. You are under our feet! Hope is rising up right now! Even right now healing is received! Right now! Healing received! Pastor Ray… And there is a contending, and there is a believing, and there is a receiving, and there is direction, and there are plans, and we come against deception, and we come against doubt, we come against anxiety of any kind, and we come against fear, and we come against lies in Jesus’ name. Ms. Jeani… The pulverized resistance of doubt, doubt is pulverized, resistance is pulverized, anything that is causing delay, to hesitate, it is crushed by the Word! The Word that is alive in the Church! The Word that is alive in the White House! The Word that is alive in the White House!! The Word that is alive in the White House! Alive in the White House! The Living Word alive in the Supreme Court! The Word alive, moving, operating, working, like a hammer crushing resistance in the Senate, in the House of Representative. The Word crushing resistance right now, today, it keeps going, it never stops. We sleep, the Word never sleeps! It crushes every lie! It burns away the chaff in the White House. It exposes evil and runs it out! Thank You, Father! You expose! You burn it up! You burn it up! Oooh! I see the Word crushing resistance in the areas that we didn’t even know were resistant because we’ve gotten so familiar with it. And so right now we expose resistance! Resistance, you are exposed! And we call you “Crushed!” And you stay crushed and you stay there and you stay there and the Word works! Freedom, liberty, replaces resistance. Father, I thank You right now for the great exchange as the Word works. Liberty for all, the justice of the Most High coming from the justices of the Supreme Court, the justices of the district courts, every judge. Just like the prophet Balaam that couldn’t curse Israel, even when he was paid to curse Israel, the judges can’t curse our nation even when they are being paid to curse our nation. We declare right now “You cannot! You will not!” In fact, we call you saved. We call you sanctified. We call you delivered. We call you an advocate for the Gospel! Today! Today! Today! Pastor Ray… We lift up Israel in Jesus’ name and we declare this nation will never, ever be separated from Israel. Israel will never, ever be separated from us. Thank You, Father, that the embassy is in Jerusalem! Thank You! We plead the blood of Jesus over our embassy, the United States of America in Jerusalem! We thank You that it shall never be removed! Thank You for the Land of Israel. It shall never be taken away from them in Jesus’ name. And this nation, in our state, we rebuke those anti-Semitic words that have been spoken. We declare them “Inoperative!” in Jesus’ name. Minnesota will never be known in that way in Jesus’ name. So, we call some voices down and we call some other voices up in Jesus’ name! We will continually move in the right ways, move in God’s ways in Jesus’ name. We pray for the 2020 election. I know it’s not yet but we go on out this morning and cover that election and declare we’re not going back the way it used to be but we’re going ahead continually into new and greater ways in God in! We plead the blood of the Lamb over the election in Jesus’ name, cover every aspect of it, pray for lies to be exposed and uncovered, hidden things to be revealed in Jesus’ name. What was started, it shall be continued! We are moving more and more in heaven’s ways in Jesus’ name. Thank You, Father. We pray over answers. We are praying over solutions and answers we don’t know yet. We cover these things that we’ll need to know, plans, ways, ideas, situations we haven’t come up on yet but we will come up on them in Jesus’ name. So, we go on out this morning and prepare some things, prepare some steps, prepare the way; prepare the situations out front of us in Jesus’ name. Today, we plead the blood way out front there, cover every aspect of the times that are to come with the blood of the Lamb. The commanding words from heaven, we pray over those words, words of authority that You’ve put within us. We believe to operate in them. We believe to press through with them. We believe to be strong and steadfast with what You’ve said that we could do and should do and will do, that we’d enter on into… Okay, thank You, Father, enter on into those secret places in You, not just man’s ways, man’s plans but Your ways and Your plans. Thank You for it. Okay, thank You, we’ll take our seat. We take our seat in heavenly places and watch. We watch over situations. We watch over worldwide events and we call some things down that have risen up, we call them down and we call them out. They are not from God. We declare that this nation, the United States of America will never move in the ways that some other nations have moved. We speak strength over every single one of our leaders in Jesus’ name. We pray for supernatural wisdom. Oh, Father, thank You for Your wisdom. Thank You for insight. We pray for an awakening, for revival to break out in every area, every state, cities that would be totally rearranged and changed, Ms. Jeani… I see the way being made in France. Greater blessing, greater manifestation in France, the Church coming together, massive revelation coming from France, massive, massive money into France! She hardly has to rise up because God lifts her up! Things become easy, things become easy with the breath of Holy Spirit, easy and breezy! Holy Spirit breathing over you, speaking through you, making the way for you. All of that hard ground that you have tilled is now producing harvest for you, to you and that would be NOW! Times of great rest and refreshing and even then, the only rest you have is in him because you continue to go out and get it! The aggressiveness of the finished work in France, the finished work, aggressive, Go! Go! Go after the lost, aggressively going after the lost! Aggressively attaining all that is already been given and promised. Father, I thank You that with promises fulfilled there is greater asking! There is greater believing! There is strength! There is strength! I hear there is strength in numbers now in France! I see the numbers coming together on behalf of the Church in France. I see the government supporting the Church in France. Authorities seeing the fruit and saying “We’ve got to get with God!” The urgency to get with God in France! People running to the Church! People running to the Church in France! It is a sign. It is a wonder, and it increases and it increases for this no end to Your kingdom! There is no end to Your Kingdom! Ms. Cindy… Father, we are lifting up France today! Let Your hand be on the church in France to increase her! Strengthening and increasing her with All Might! Rising, rising, rising up and increasing in wisdom and understanding that she would finish her race, and finish it with joy! Infusing France today with All Might and All Power in Jesus’ name. It is her time to rise up! No longer slumbering or sleeping but rising up to the voice of the Good Shepherd! We bind every evil assignment and silence the voice of the enemy with the blood of Jesus. We declare France will reason in light. They are a people known for their ability to reason but they will no longer reason in darkness! We command light to shine and every shadow to be lit up in Jesus’ name to reason with God in Light! You have calls that are calling, people that are called this nation. We thank You for those that are called to France! Declaring those that are yet to go, to get up and go! And for those that are already there, that they would be strengthened with boldness to declare the Gospel! Not in any way intimidated but boldness would come on them because the Love of the Father is in them, perfected in love and knowing who they are! Embolden with all Might! Speaking forth words that cause the wisdom of this world to come to nothing in the Light of Your overwhelming Grace! We declare that Your Word would spread rapidly and have free course into every village, every city. Declaring great light over France! We lift up Pastor Marie-Helen and ask that her voice be amplified, grant her great utterance, let Your Word go forth and break all the walls down that hinder the Gospel from flowing freely in the streets of France! Goodness, and mercy, and justice and peace coming out from the courts of God! And all that are against God’s plan for France are shown to be in the wrong in an open court before all eyes! And the light shines and people come to their senses and know that God, You are good and Your mercy endures toward France in Jesus’ name. Pastor Ray… I will just give you update on Pastor Marie. It has taken twelve years but they finally signed a contract on a building for their church. All of the city requirements have not gone through but they can meet in there and pray in that building. But they just had a victory last week. The building was a printing company and above it there are apartments. So, they needed to get an okay from the renters to put in an exit door because it’s a public place. They said absolutely no way because they were opposed to the Gospel. They needed to stand strong. They got someone to stand with them and they got the okay last week and the people decided to change their minds. They changed their minds because the other company that wanted to go in was a body shop with noise and pollution all day long. So, it’s working out. Just agree with me in Jesus’ name. We agree for favor with the city of Nice. I know there are people in the city council, building commission, whatever they are, that the church has favor with. We believe for the Holy Spirit’s favor, God’s favor to go before this church and make a way. Like I said, for twelve years there has been no way. They have had to rent hotel space or whatever. Father, we agree as touching this church that they will enter in and occupy that territory and many will come from the north, east, south, and west. And Your favor is going before them now but it will go before them in the weeks and months that are to come. We agree for the finances, for favor in that area, finances to build it out, to make it the best that it could be in Jesus’ name. A standard from heaven that people will see and people will say “God’s favor has to be with them.” We lift up Pastor Marie, Pastor Elizabeth, Pastor Mark in Jesus’ name. We pray strength, wisdom, and the peace of God that passes all understanding. We thank You for it. We agree with them. We stand with them in Jesus’ name and everybody said “Amen.”
