Morning Prayer Summary for Tuesday, March 30, 2021

Ms. Annie…

I was thinking about this week and all He went through for us: His passion, His suffering, His sacrifice, and of course, His resurrection victory. Hallelujah.

But I was reading about the woman who came the week before. She broke the jar of oil and poured it over Jesus’ head. And Judas said, “Why this waste?”

He thought you could waste something on Jesus.

But Jesus said, “Leave her alone. She has done a good thing for Me. She has anointed My body for burial, beforehand.”

So, I was thinking about how when He was being whipped, when He was carrying that horrid Cross, the fragrance of that oil was maybe coming out of his wounds, out of his skin. And did He smell it? Did it remind Him that somebody loved Him, that somebody appreciated Him?

Ms. Annie led us singing I Pour My Love On You

Pastor Ray..

Lord, We love You. We know You’ve called us. You’ve anointed us. You’ve equipped us.  We’re not alone. You’re with us. You’re in us. You’re working through us. You’re working around us. You’re doing things all the time.

Thank You for Your precious Holy Spirit, for the power of Your Spirit working in us and through us, changing, rearranging, and turning things.

Thank You for the oil of the Holy Spirit, for the wind, for the rain, for the fire. Thank You for what You did, Jesus. All throughout that week, You went all the way for us… and of course before that too. Thank You for what You’ve done, what You did, and what You’re doing.

Have you ever wanted to just take a deep breath? Awwwh… Hallelujah.

Thank You, Holy Spirit, for Your beautiful presence, for the touch, for the changes, You’re anointing within us. Thank You.

Scripture focus…

At last we have freedom, for Christ has set us free! We must always cherish this truth and firmly refuse to go back into the bondage of our past. Galatians 5:1 (TPT)

For me, a bondage of the past… there are a lot of things. but religion had me in the past. But it doesn’t have me now because we’ve been made free.

13) Beloved ones, God has called us to live a life of freedom. But don’t view this wonderful freedom as an excuse to set up a base of operations in the natural realm. Constantly love each other and be committed to serve one another.
14) For all the law can be summarized in one grand statement:
“Demonstrate love to your neighbor, even as you care for and love yourself.”
16) Let me emphasize this: As you yield to the dynamic life and power of the Holy Spirit, you will abandon the cravings of your self-life.
17) When your self-life craves the things that offend the Holy Spirit you hinder him from living free within you! And the Holy Spirit’s intense cravings hinder your self-life from dominating you! So then, the two incompatible and conflicting forces within you are your self-life of the flesh and the new creation life of the Spirit.
18) But when you yield to the life of the Spirit, you will no longer be living under the law, but soaring above it!
And then he goes down a whole list of self sins. I want to get to the fruit part.
22–23) But the fruit[m] produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions: 

joy that overflows,
peace that subdues,
patience (in the Aramic it means sweetness) that endures (never quitting),
kindness in action,
a life full of virtue (make it visible with our actions),
faith that prevails (strength, triumph effective, consistent, conquering, winning),
gentleness of heart (kind, loving, tender temperament or character), and
strength of spirit (reliable, inquisitive, enthusiastic).
Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.

24) Keep in mind that we who belong to Jesus Christ have already experienced crucifixion. For everything connected with our self-life was put to death on the cross and crucified with Messiah.
25) If the Spirit is the source of our life, we must also allow the Spirit to direct every aspect of our lives.
26) So may we never be arrogant, or look down on another, for each of us is an original. We must forsake all jealousy that diminishes the value of others. Galatians 5:13-14;16-18;22-26 (TPT)

22 But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness,
23 Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].
24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus (the Messiah) have crucified the flesh (the godless human nature) with its passions and appetites and desires.
25 If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit [g]we have our life in God, let us go forward [walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.]  Galatians 5:22-25 (AMPC)

Pastor Ray…

Yesterday Ms. Annie was sharing how she follows the Holy Spirit. She said she always puts up her antennas concerning whatever it is that she feels to do. Is the Holy Spirit in agreement? Is the Holy Spirit saying yes? Or is He saying no?

And that will keep us out of trying to do things we weren’t even called to do or the timing is maybe not right.

Ms. Annie…

I talked about the scripture when Mary went up to the servants at the wedding at Cana, and said, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”

That’s a really good rule. Whatever He says to you, do it. And you won’t run out of wine. You won’t run out of joy. You won’t run out of supply?

But Jesus said, “I only do what I see my Father doing.”

For example, they told Him Lazarus is dead. Well, He didn’t see his Father getting up and leaving that very day and going to where Lazarus was. He just stayed there a few more days because He only did what He saw his Father do.

That’s my prayer. I’m not saying I do that all the time but I confess I want to.

Every day I say, “Give me ears to hear what You’re saying. Give me eyes to see what You’re doing.” And then I pray that I will only do and say what I see my Father doing.

In that is the recipe for every need being supplied. Because when you’re doing what He’s doing, He’s going to make sure you don’t run out.

Brother DJ…

When you said, “whatever He says to do, do it.” I heard, “It’s in the doing.”

Last Sunday, Cindy and I went to get some lunch after church. As we were leaving the restaurant, we saw two Sikh men walking into Caribou Coffee. You know, they have a different look. They wear turbans and have beards. I know who Sikhs are and the religion I know. But the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart, “Go and pay for their coffee.”

Cindy and I walked in and started talking to them. We found out they were brothers. I let them know we would pay for their order. And they were not just buying coffee but a huge bag of bagels. (ha, ha, ha). They asked, “Why?” I said, “It’s okay. Not a big deal.”

The Holy Spirit had spoken, “See those two guys. I want you to pay for them.”

Ms. Annie, when you brought up the woman who poured the oil over Jesus’ head and how Jesus remembered… These two men will remember and they will spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to somebody else.

I claim them, “Sikhs for Jesus!” (ha, ha, ha)

And Cindy and I said, “Now we are going to pray.” And guess what? They received prayer from us. Cindy put her hand on one and I put my hand on the other. They closed their eyes and we started praying in the name of Jesus that the blessing of God would come upon them.

Father, we praise and worship You. When You say, give and it shall be given back to you. Like Ms. Annie said, just do it. It’s in the doing.

Father, thank You. You already told us what to do. Give and it shall be given back to you… Bring your tithes and offering to the storehouse and You will open the windows of heaven and pour out so much blessing that we don’t even have room enough to Keep it. We give it away. We keep giving and keep giving.

So, Father, thank You. These Sikhs we prayed with, we sowed into their life. – they’re coming to Jesus Christ.

We say, “Sikhs for Jesus!”

♫ There is no one else for me
None but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise ♫

He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, in praying

Ms. Marian…

It’s not just do what you “hear.” Because I will see things. For instance, I am driving down the road and I see a coffee place and I will see myself giving somebody a cup of coffee. So, I do what I “see.” It depends on the Holy ghost and each one’s personality.

Ms. Annie…

Jesus said, “I only do what I see my Father doing.”

I keep being drawn back to Jesus’ suffering maybe because of the week we are in. But as we’re talking about all of this, I’m still overwhelmed with the understanding that the only reason we can even hear His voice, the only reason we can even see what He’s doing, is because of the great price He paid for us.

It’s only because of the new birth that we can become containers of His Spirit and hear Him. It’s such an honor. It’s such a blessing. It’s such a beautiful blessing. Thank You, Lord.

I just want to keep thanking Him for that! It’s easy for me to take it for granted. I’ve been walking in it for long enough that it just becomes kind of a way of life. And it should be a way of life, living by the Spirit, walking by the Spirit, hearing His voice, having His joy. But oh… You know it’s free for us, but it cost Him everything. It cost him so much.

Thank You, Lord. Thank You, Jesus. We’ll always thank You forever and all eternity. We thank You for the price You paid for each of us.

Ms. Barb…

Can we do that? Let’s just do that.

Thank you, Jesus. Hallelujah. Glory to God! Glory to God! We’re so grateful to You.

You are Good. Thank You, Jesus, for everything You’ve done for us. Thank You for Your blood. Thank You for Your grace. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Whew! Your grace is sufficient for us. Thank You for making a way! When there wasn’t a way, You came and You delivered us! Glory to God! Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, Lord.

Can we glorify Him today! Glory to God! There’s no one like You! There’s no one like You! There’s no one who can do what You do! Thank You, Father, for Your great and wonderful plan. Hallelujah! And You didn’t leave us as orphans. Hallelujah. You sent the Holy Ghost, the Holy Ghost! Thank You, Jesus. You went away so You could send the Comforter to us. Thank You, Lord.

Thank You, Holy Ghost, that You’re leading and guiding us in this place, that You help us to give high praise to the One who deserves all praise and glory. You enable us to give praise. We lift our voices to You today, Lord. Thank You. Jesus.

You are excellent in all Your ways. Yes, Lord! When we were down in the pit, You pulled us out. You reached down where we were. You came down and You lifted us up. Hallelujah!

We worship You with everything inside of us. We worship. We bow down at Your feet. We pour ourselves out with all that we have, Lord. A living sacrifice to You. Lord, we pour ourselves out so that You can fill us up. That rushing mighty wind is moving today! That same wind of the Holy Ghost is moving in and through us today. Hallelujah!

Nothing is lost. Hallelujah. But everything is gained by the blood of Jesus Christ! Hallelujah. You have given us a recipe for success. Glory to God! And today we are stirring up the gift on the inside.

Oh Lord, You died, You were lifted up so that You could give us gifts. Thank You for the gifts, the callings Lord! That You would be glorified in Your Church!

It’s all for You, Jesus. It’s all for You. It’s all for Your glory. It’s all for Your kingdom. Our purpose in this earth, to expand Your kingdom, to reach those that are lost, to bring them in, Father.

We yield ourselves, Lord, to Your plan and Your purpose, to seek those that are lost! To seek the Sieks! To seek because it’s Your heart that not one would be lost. That is Your heart! The gift that You desire is that not one would be lost in this earth! And Your heart cries out! That is the cry! That is the cry!

And does the Holy Spirit not move us? Every gift, every gift – He fills us up and builds us up so we can reach, we can reach the lost.

Oh, Father, open our eyes today and our ears so we can see and hear, that we don’t miss any opportunity that You bring before us, Father, to reach into the kingdom of darkness and bring those people into the kingdom of light, into the kingdom of Your dear Son.

That’s how we glorify You, Jesus! We laid down our ideas. We lay down our plans. We take up Yours today in Jesus’ name. Every way, every word that comes out of our mouth be Words of the Spirit in Jesus name. Words from the Spirit of God, anointed words, appointed words that turn the situations, that penetrate the hearts of men – anointed and appointed today. Thank You, Father.

It’s time to pick up the pace. Gird up your loins and get ready to run. It’s time to run. It’s time to run in the right direction. It’s time to gird up your loins and run in the right direction.

It’s a new path in Jesus’ name. It seems unfamiliar but it’s a new path. So, go ahead and get ready to run in that way in Jesus’ name.

It’s an anointed way. It’s an anointed path. It’s the power and presence of the Holy Ghost that will carry you. Not a normal man, not like a normal woman but you will be carried in the power of the Spirit in Jesus’ name so that you will run faster than you could run in the natural. Glory to God. Hallelujah. Thank you, Lord.

And the last shall be first. And the last shall be first.

It’s never too late. It’s never too late. Some of you have just gotten into the race. Glory to God! Well, the Lord is going to carry you into that plan. The Lord’s going to bring you into the place you need to be.

You’re never too old. You’re never too old. You’re never too young. Glory to God! For the anointing, the presence of the Holy Ghost… Awh, He’s the One. He’s the One. He’ll redeem the time for you!

I feel like there are people that are looking to the limitations. “Well, there’s not that much time left” or “I’m this old…” And the Holy Ghost would say to you… Whew! Oh, glory to God! It’s like an unlimited amount of time for you in the Spirit of God. Whew! Ha! Ha!

He can do so much with whatever you have if you just give it to Him. Glory to God! If you just started today, you would be amazed at what He can do with you even in the next year.

It’s time to let go of fear. In Jesus name, spirit of fear, get out of here!

You speak to that spirit of fear and get ready to step into the places God has called you to. Because He has a plan for every single one of you. It’s not just a plan for Pastor Ray, because he’s a pastor. No. The plan is for every single one of you.

God has assigned you because He’s given you a sphere of influence. And He wants you to take that sphere and He wants you to completely overtake those people, that area. Glory to God! Everyone that He’s put in your hand, He’s assigned people to you, for you to reach. And it’s time for you to go out and get them! It’s time for you to do it. Glory to God! Hallelujah!

Lord, we just trust You for the ways to reach them. We trust You. We lean on You.

Holy Spirit, thank You. That You direct and guide to reach every single one that You place in our path. Glory to God! You know. You know. You know exactly how to reach them. Hallelujah! We thank You for that great influx. Glory to God! In the name of Jesus Christ, this is the time. This is the time. It’s time. It’s time.

No more delays. No more delays in Jesus’ name. It’s time to rise up and be who you are in the name of Jesus.

Ms. Jeani…

So, on the way here this morning, I kept getting, “After all these tears, you’re still here.” And It’s for our country and it’s for our church.

It’s not too late. After all these tears, you’re still here and you’re not here to survive. You’re here to thrive. It’s for the Church. It’s for Living Word. It’s for the Twin Cities. It’s for Minnesota. It’s for America. It’s for France. It’s for Israel. It’s for whoever it is that can hear this and whatever you represent.

After all these tears, you’re still here!

They who sow in tears shall reap with joyful singing. Psalm 126:5 (AMPC)

After all those tears, you reap with joy and singing. And that would be now! That would be today!

There are too many examples in the Word where it looked like it was over and it was God’s favorite time!

You number and record my wanderings; put my tears into Your bottle—are they not in Your book? Psalm 56:8 (AMPC)

America, are your tears not in God’s book? America, are your wanderings not recorded and your tears not in God’s book?

Then shall my enemies turn back in the day that I cry out; this I know, for God is for me. Psalm 56:9 (AMPC)

Father, we thank You! All of those that have sown in tears, every country, every church… France, you have sown in tears of joy, tears of exhaustion. But you sowed and you shall reap in joy and singing!

I love when Holy Spirit spoke through Barb that it’s not too late! Time is speeding up. It’s speeding up on your behalf! It’s speeding up for the purposes and the plans of God.

The enemy has to return seven times what was stolen. And many times we don’t even know to the degree the enemy has stolen. But God knows. God knows. And it is all coming to pass right now today, today is the day of salvation.

Today is the day that He made, and we rejoice and we’re glad in it! And we thank God that we are still here after all the tears.

Ms. Cindy…

This morning when I pulled in the parking lot, I heard the Lord say, “When was the last time you were humbled?”

I thought, if I were to ask some one that question, they might be offended. Because it sounds like I think they may need to be knocked off your high horse. But the way He said it to me was more like an invitation.

We do want to do what He is leading to do but pride can get in our way.

But today we say, “Get out of the way.” Because we’re going to do what God has put in our hearts to do. And when we do it, we get humbled by His goodness. He shows up and in wonderful ways we could never make happen. And we realized that it is so much about Him and very little about us.

And so today we say, “Father, we pick up that invitation. Will You humble us?” Which is really an invitation for His goodness to show up everywhere we go.

So, we forfeit our foolish pride and look to the hope that You have given us and set our heart wholly and unchangeable on that glory that is coming when You are revealed in the earth.

And how is Jesus revealed to the earth? Through Us! (ha, ha, ha)

We are the door. We are the door. And He is inviting us to open the door and be amazed.

Oh, thank You, Father for Your ways being manifested and the world seeing and coming to the knowledge of Your glory, Father. We do take those opportunities and Your invitation, Lord. We do in Jesus name. Amen.

A Word of the Lord came through Ms. Dar….

So, let your ears hear My children what My Spirit is saying to you this day, let your ears hear what My Spirit is saying to you today. Know that I am with you. know that I desire that you do whatever I say to you to do. Know that I ask of you to trust Me, trust Me with all your heart. Do not lean on your own reasoning or what other people say or what you think. But trust Me with all your heart and lean on Me.

Lean on My understanding. lean on My truth. Lean on My strength. Lean on My wisdom. Lean on My guidance. Know that I am leading you. I am your Shepherd and it’s important, it is vital that you follow Me in this day, you follow Me where I’m leading you. Hear Me calling you by your name to go where I call you to go, to do what I expressed to you to do.

Know that My plans are great. My plans are perfect and My plans bring forth answers and deliverance and miracles. Know that I am the light and the life of man. And you are My light to this world.

This is a dark world and a dark place right now, more than you know. And I’m calling you to be My bright light of glory – to shine! to shine! With the brightness of My glory. It is filled with My grace and My truth. I call you to be a light to where I send you to go and know that I am leading, know that I am positioning you.

Be not afraid for I am your God. Be brave and of good courage. As I told My leader, My great leader, Joshua. I say to you, be bold. Be courageous and trust Me. Know that when you let My light shine, it shall disperse all the darkness. It shall disperse the darkness and bring My harvest of souls in these last days. It will bring deliverance and it will bring victory. It will bring healing. It will bring great and mighty workings of a mighty God. And this world will know that not only you are My light and My glory, but I am a mighty God who never fails says the Lord.

Ms. Jeani…

You know, it’s really important that we realize that God doesn’t see us as failing. He never ever, not one single solitary time has seen you as a failure.

Pastor Ray…

No, He doesn’t have that picture.

Ms. Jeani…

Father, I thank You for that revelation in the Church right now.

I thank You for leaders that stand for righteousness, righteousness leaders that stand for the goodness of God, whether they know You or not. I thank You right now that You are ministering victory to them. You’re ministering confidence and courage to them.

Father. I thank You that this truly is our greatest hour, right now.

In Isaiah 61, it talks about how we are called to set the captive free. It also talks about the year of His favor and the day of His vengeance that comforts those who mourn. So many times in the Word, His vengeance has come. The vengeance that sets the captive free, the vengeance that comforts those who morn; it happens in a day. There is a distinction in the Word. After all these tears, you’re still here because the vengeance of God that brings you comfort, that brings you victory, comes suddenly. Just when everything looks huge, just when everything looks like it’s going to take FOREVER! The vengeance of God comes suddenly!

How many, “It’s going to take forever’s” are there in the Word? And how many were remedied by the sudden-lies of the Most High, who loves you and never once has seen you as a failure, not one time!

We declare over America today, “You have not failed! Your greatest moments, your greatest day’s, begin now.”

I thank you that the Church no longer talks in terms of what God did and what God’s going to do, but we see, Father, what You’re doing now.

Holy Spirit, we are led and we are guided by You. And You are a now God! You are a this moment God! And You are the God of sudden-lies!

The year of Your favor and the day of vengeance that comforts those who morn.

Pastor Ray…

Hallelujah. All this time I’ve been seeing a word in capital letters, “PROBLEM.”

I wanted to say, “PROBLEMS.” But the word was, “PROBLEM.”

And this is what I heard. “Stop looking at the PROBLEM. Even though it looks like its in capital letters and you have no idea what to do about it, stop looking at the problem.

Maybe you’ve said, “Something just isn’t right. It’s just not adding up.” I don’t mean just multiplication. But something is just not right.

Stop. Stop looking at the problem and look at the solution. And the solution is in Me, sayeth the Lord.

I have already provided a solution. Keep looking up, keep standing up, keep speaking up, keep calling those things forth even though you’ve not seen them. And the solution will be yours because I’ve already made it to be so. And it’s for you individually because it is tailored to you. And what you saw as a problem, I’ve already made the way right. I’ve already created a way through. You will look back and say, “Thank You Lord! You made a way!

So, keep on marching, keep on commanding, keep on speaking, keep on looking up from where all of your help has come from. Hallelujah.

Ms. Annie led us singing Glory, Glory to the Lamb

Pastor Ray…

The glory is around us. The glory is on us. We’re bright. We’ll walk right. We’ll stand right. And we’ll speak right. We’ll speak words of victory, not words of defeat. And we’ll declare, it’ll all be all right. (ha, ha, ha)

It will turn. Things will change. And we declare, they will change in God’s perfect will and perfect ways.

We thank You for it today. We give You the glory and the honor and the praise.

Oh, we just thank You, Lord. We’ll be where we need to be, so what we need to do, and say what we need to say. Hallelujah. Thank You, Lord. We’re up above, seated in heavenly places. Hallelujah.

We give you glory and honor and praise and thanksgiving for this day. This is the day You made. You’ve created it to be blessed all the way through. Thank You for it in Jesus name. Amen. Hallelujah.

Thank you for coming to corporate prayer. Hallelujah. Appreciate it.
