Morning Prayer Summary for Wednesday, July 28, 2021

Ms. Annie led us singing Isn’t He (This Jesus)

Pastor Ken…

Often what God intends doesn’t always transpire in the timetable He wants it to because He partners with pray-ers to get behind His purposes and plans, to propel them in the earth.

I sense God is summoning us to the place of prayer – to simply be available. He has the supply. He has the purpose and plan. And He has some updates that He wants to download in and through us.

As we pray and wait and give expression to the Holy Spirit, those purposes are made knowable. Purposes for you, for me, for the Church, for what God wants to do in all the nations of the earth in this hour as we move quickly toward that great and notable Day. The Day He splits the eastern sky, and He comes to catch us away. And things begin to transition again to a new dispensation. We don’t know when that is, but we know it’s sooner today than yesterday.

So, we are partnering with Him today in this place we call prayer.

The media is purporting that post Covid there will come an epidemic of mental illness.

The news media is not prophetic. The testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy. Even in your life, your testimony of Jesus is prophetic. It’s what He wants to duplicate. The Hebrew root word for testimony means “to do again.”

No wonder we overcome by the word of our testimony. The world reports some things and maybe there is some natural components. Of course, the forces of darkness are active. But His plan always trumps the Devil.

The enemy is the one who is nervous because Jesus has already brought him to nothing, triumphing over him through His death, burial, and resurrection. Every weapon he could potentially conjure up against you, has been stripped from him because of the power of the blood.

The Spiritual Giant, the Church, is rising up all over the earth. And I choose to rise up!

Others may rise up because they are forced to. Because God is going to corral them in a sense because the heat is being turned up in some way. The forces of darkness are on the move. The enemy is an oppressor coming from that parallel dimension; he is causing a lot of that craziness. The Devil is crazy.

A lot of what we see manifest on the news and in people’s lives, violence in our cities, it’s nothing more than the influence of darkness. But God in advance has planned and set in motion a wave of healing, restoration, refreshing, and yes even RESTITUTION.

What is restitution? God not only wants to heal us body, soul, and spirit, but He wants the enemy to pay back 7-fold for what he has put us through.

But we have to rise up and get back to the old discipline of meditating on the Word. God first speaks to us through His book.

Be a person who pours over the scriptures and schools yourself in authority. Let the Word be the foundation for your prayer and richly dwell in your heart. Because that is the place God is calling us.

If a thief be caught, he can be required to pay back 7 fold, double, triple, quadruple for your trouble. As a Christian, you have to have a strong stance of faith.

As a believer and especially as a pray-er, you have to know where you stand with God, who you are in Him, what He said about you, and what you are to do. And I will add to that, who the enemy is and what you can do to him.

You should tell him, “I am coming after you today, Satan.”

We are here to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. He overturned darkness, kicked Satan to the curb at every turn, and in every way and we are to do the same.

In the spiritual dimension, you should always be so full of God that wherever you would go, the thickly populated spiritual realm of demonic entities would be fleeing and pushed back as you go. When you open your mouth, demons would fly and hit the back of the wall in the realm of the spirit.

One of the best analogies is post 9/11. The destruction of the Twin Towers revealed a lot of people on the upper floors perished because of how the stairwells were constructed. So, when they began to construct One World Trade Center, they implemented a positive air flow technology in the stairwells. When the doors opened from a floor to the street, there would be a positive pressure of air flowing in. During 9/11 there was no positive airflow. The fire and smoke were able to get in and asphyxiate and kill many people. But now it forces out the fire and smoke and heat. It keeps people safe so they can get to a place of safety.

That’s how we should be living now on the inside. There shouldn’t be a vacuum on the inside of your inner life, spiritually speaking.

Because the enemy knows when someone is weak and vulnerable and devour-able. He roams around “like” a lion seeking whom he may devour. As pray-ers, we cannot allow ourselves to be devour-able or edible. Not that you are necessarily engaged in sin or cavorting with the enemy in some way. It could be you are just running low on fumes. You need to be filled so that there is a positive pressure flowing – God flowing in and out of you, so the enemy doesn’t even get near you.

When it comes to oppression, pressure, fear and anxiety… all the things we deal with in our inner life. One thing I have seen through the years. When I have prayed extra, I notice that there is a greater freedom, greater peace in my heart. Amen.

I encourage you. Maybe you’re struggling with some oppression, fears, temptation… Take a little extra time, another 5 or 10 minutes, and walk and talk with God and build up a positive pressure on the inside of you. Glory to God.

The Devil plays for keeps. We must do life and pray and seek the face of God and discipline our lives like we mean business. That’s the only way the enemy will understand.

Teddy Roosevelt coined the phrase, “Speak softly and carry a big stick.” That’s how we deal with the enemy in our prayer place.

So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord; Acts 3:19 (AMPC)

1) The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack.
2) He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters.
3 He refreshes and restores my life (myself); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him—not for my earning it, but] for His name’s sake.  Psalm 23:1–3 (AMPC)

The enemy has his own word he is trying to preach, trying to penetrate our souls with negativity, fears, worst-case scenarios. But when we turn to Him, God has a way of returning life and peace and fullness in a positive flow to our hearts.

That’s the sweet spot to pray from – when you’re full and overflowing.

The following prophecy was given by Lynne Hammond:

“I have said you’d be changed in my presence,” saith the Lord. “If you’ve not experienced change in your life, if your old ways are still prevailing, if your old man is still in evidence, you have not spent the time with Me that I desire. It isn’t a matter of self-control or disciplining your flesh with no help from Me,” saith God. “If you’ll spend time in My presence, you will be changed.

That’s the one thing God doesn’t have, our time. He has everything else. He has planned, prepared, and put in store everything we need for life and godliness. But the great exchange happens when we exchange our time to hear from Him, to make our hearts available to Him. To receive that daily… some days, moment by moment download.

You need to have God’s presence equal to and greater than the challenges you’re facing, the season you are in.” Lynne Hammond

In other words, have a positive pressure in the stairwell of your life—down in your soul so there is not a vacuum that attracts the enemy, allows negative thoughts to have their way with you.

Even oppression. You don’t have to do anything to attract the enemy. Sometimes he just comes to oppress you in that spiritual, invisible realm that is just right there. And you may find yourself saying, “Why am I just feeling down or discouraged?” It might be that God is prompting you to identify with something and just pray. Or is it just the enemy messing around? Often times, it’s just that.

It isn’t a matter of self-control or disciplining your flesh with no help from Me,” saith God. “If you’ll spend time in My presence, you will be changed. Your patterns of life will be changed. Your old man will begin to pass away. Your new man will begin to rise in the image of My Son. Your life will begin to bear much fruit. The evidence of your walk with Me will change as a result of spending much time in my presence. If you’re having trouble getting rid of an old habit, if you’re having trouble with your marriage, if your family relationships aren’t changing, you’re not spending the time with Me that would enable that change to come to pass. Your desire and the motivation of your heart to walk uprightly before Me is a product of becoming so close to Me that you do not want to bring hurt to Me. In natural relationships, when you love someone, you want to do the right things for them. You don’t want to hurt them. Well, as you spend time with Me,” saith God, “as you spend time in My presence, we’ll develop a relationship that is closer than any earthly relationship. It will shape the pattern of your living.

Lord, help us to live more closely to You… to do everything in life not from our own understanding, but from the Spirit. That is what brings change to our lives and those around us – healing and revival. We desire to see what God is going to do, so we show up everywhere with this expectation.

God, there is more. We have to go from this natural level into something deeper, higher, wider. Let your soul cry out for that! Let us welcome Holy Spirit into every area of our lives, His wisdom, power, and glory. Unless we do that, we are stuck and doomed to repeat our past failures.

Father, You are able to get us unstuck – move us forward.

You’ll want to conform your ways to My Word simply because it’s the desire of your heart. Your life will change but it will be a product of your spending time with Me.” [end of prophecy]

Let’s pause and check our hearts. God has put some desires down there. The real you is a spirit connected to the Holy Spirit. He has things He is passionate about for you and through you for other people’s lives. And as pray-ers, that’s what we have to get really good at – connecting and identifying what He is saying and what He is doing and the feeling of the Holy Spirit in us to know what to pray for, what to call for, what name to utter on a particular day who might be in peril and needs the name of Jesus proclaimed over their lives. Hallelujah!

That’s one definition of revival!

When you get so in love and so connected and so close to Jesus that you automatically, organically love what He loves, and you hate what He hates—that is the Devil and every work of darkness. You love people, and you love to pray, and you love to yield to Him, and you get addicted to His presence and addicted to flow of His Spirit and addicted to healing. You get so addicted to God so much that you can’t stop going after Him. You just keep going after Him! You keep praying. You keep seeking Him. Not out of duty! Not out of drudgery! Not out of disciplining your flesh any longer, but now out of delight and joy.

And thoughts come to you like, “I just can’t wait to get into His presence tonight or today or this morning. I can’t wait to meet with God at prayer.” Glory to God!

Your life, emotions, thoughts, relationships, decision making, and prayers and all that you do finds a whole new life and meaning – the life of God. And change happens organically and effortlessly just like Jesus predicted. If we would abide in Him, we would automatically produce the fruit of God The Holy Spirit on the limbs of our lives – the character and the beauty that is Jesus.

And people in this hour will come up to you and say, “You look like Jesus.”

We are His offspring. In Him we live and move and have our being. Truly we are His offspring. We are going to get so caught up in knowing, loving, and flowing with Him that one day like Enoch, we will step into another realm.

Even though the Devil is applying pressure, we apply our own pressure.

Holy Spirit wants us to live as a follower of Jesus! He is summoning us to live and do and have our being from the realm of God now. Father, less of me and more of You. Help me to do what You have called me to do from the fire, from the glory.

It’s not out of performance or duty, but to please Him. I know I am well pleasing to Him already but a heart to want to please Him. That is grace.

 Pastor Ken…

Heavenly Father, thank You that You are with us wherever we are. We are aware of the beauty, holiness of Your presence – You are changing us in this moment. Help us to get out of our religious thinking that we have to do something!

No! You want to minister to us! Father, download some things to our hearts today, change us to prepare us for the days ahead. Blow upon the Church, our families, homes, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia and bring a deluge of healing and recoveries.

We ask for an opening in the realm of God for rain to come – wholesale curtain of rain! Raining down upon dreams and callings, and purposes and bodies. A rain that dissolves addictions, abuse, and all their effects. You are able to do what we can’t do!

Come today, Lord. In fire, power, might! The mission requires it, demands it.

Ms. Peg led us singing in the spirit…

Pastor Ken…

We pray that new light of hope and life would stream across nations, where hurting and hungry people are searching for the genuine and true. We send out a supply of the spirit, angels to go and do in accordance with the Word, in the lives and homes of those online. Raise up a standard of life to those that are hurting and broken in Jesus’ name.

We lift up the Greek nation. Praying over every border for a sweeping move of God. We pray for protection for the body of Christ for anything that may come on the horizon. Speak to them in Greece. Marshall forces and move and orchestrate for what is coming! In a short time. For Your purpose in that nation – fire, utterance, the presence of God stream to every part of that ancient land today in the name of Jesus. Thank You, Lord Jesus.

We give You all the glory and honor and praise. We yield our hearts over to You. Lord, have Your way in us, let us not be the same. Let us be used of You to make a difference in the Spirit and in the natural in Jesus’ name. Amen.
