Prayer Summary for April 7

Scripture focus…

(1) Comfort, comfort My people, says your God. (2) Speak tenderly to the heart of Jerusalem, and cry to her that her time of service and her warfare are ended, that [her punishment is accepted and] her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received [punishment] from the Lord’s hand double for all her sins. (3) A voice of one who cries: Prepare in the wilderness the way of the Lord [clear away the obstacles]; make straight and smooth in the desert a highway for our God! (4) Every valley shall be lifted and filled up, and every mountain and hill shall be made low; and the crooked and uneven shall be made straight and level, and the rough places a plain. (5) And the glory (majesty and splendor) of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it. (8) The [a]grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. Isaiah 40:1–5,


I wanted to read a portion from Lynne Hammond’s book “The Master Is Calling” concerning how prophecy operates in our prayers and through how we pray. Prophecy is not just someone standing up and saying “Thus saith the Lord” but prophecy can come forth in many different ways. The best of the best is when we are directed and led by the Holy Spirit in our prayers. You know there are so many ways that prophecy works but I wanted to read this.

The following excerpt was taken from The Master Is Calling by Lynne Hammond:

In the same way, God sends praying people before His coming to make a way for Him. The tools He gives us to use are His words. Think of it! By speaking the inspired words of God by the anointing of the Holy Spirit, we clear a highway for our God! We clear a path in the realms of the Spirit so He can move and work.

During the 1800s, the great evangelist Charles Finney spoke of one man in particular upon whom rested this wonderful spirit of prayer.

His name was Mr. Abel Clary, and although he was licensed to preach, he spent the greatest part of his life and ministry in prayer. At times, he would go to the cities in which Brother Finney was preaching. His burden of prayer would often be so great that, instead of attending the meetings, he would stay in his room and pray.

In writing of him, Charles Finney records one particular time when he was having dinner with Mr. Clary and his brother. Mr. Clary bowed his head in prayer, intending only to speak a blessing over the food. Suddenly, he broke down and fled to his room. Brother Finney followed him there and found him seemingly in great distress.

He lay groaning upon the bed, the Spirit making intercession for him, and in him, with groanings that could not be uttered. I had barely entered the room, when he made out to say, ‘Pray, Brother Finney.’ I knelt down and helped him in prayer, by leading his soul out for the conversion of sinners … I understood that this was the voice of God. I saw the Spirit of prayer was upon him, and I felt His influence upon myself, and took it for granted that the work would move on powerfully.”

Brother Finney’s work in that city did indeed “move on powerfully.” During the six weeks he was there, 500 people were saved.

Thank You, Father, for the authority to pray out a highway for the Lord
Every day is a new day and You are calling us up
Details will always need to be prayed out
Distractions, limitations—we call them down and out in Jesus’ name
Coming by the blood, we go forth
We are washed from all condemnation in the blood of Jesus—thank You, Father
You are the Way Maker—You have made a way through Your blood
Clearing out the way for others—ministering strength from heaven to them by faith
We plead the blood over positions of authority within the Church
Leaders, rise up and roll off every care and go in the right way
Momentum in the body in Jesus’ name
Dimmed fires—we throw some logs on those fires today
We refuse the spirit of religion to operate in the body—declaring change now
Open up their eyes to see the ministry of Your Spirit, Father
Calling for ways to be brought forth to soften hearts—doors that open up truth
Drawing all those in darkness to the light—pleading the blood in Jesus’ name
Alarms going off, signs of the times showing up, drawing them in
Breaking through into the new
Contending for the more—doors, avenues, highways
There is a way! There is a clear plan!
Walk in that plan and speak and declare it!
The way has been made and revealed all the way to the end!
Ways and turns and openings—covered in the blood!
That the Church would not sleep but would contend!
Where the Spirit of God is there is victory!
Thank You, Father, that the standard of the Lord is brought forth in Jesus’ name
Out of the shadows and into the bright light
There are so many ways—we will not back off
It’s the glorious Good News!
Blockages be removed—stop in your operations against the body in Jesus’ name
The glory of God has come!
Laborers, laborers, laborers—go forth in Jesus’ name

Pastor Paul shared…

I just can sense that here is the body of Christ crying out and drawing near unto God but it is a tendency for the body of Christ at large once they get to a place of revelation or what we would call a meeting place with the Lord… that tendency to linger there rather than press beyond. Because where the place the Lord has called you to is not the place He wants you to remain. It is the place that He meets with you that He may take you up. The Lord is always saying “Come up hither.” That’s always His revelation of who He wants to be in us—to be just like Him, conformed to the image of His Son. So it’s a place of growth He’s calling us unto. Psalm 97:11 states that light is sown for the righteous and gladness of heart for the upright. So God is always sowing… It’s like you take the first step and the light is beyond you and then you take the next step and the light is beyond you and then you take another step and… God is sowing light for you!

When we came in this morning, I was meditating on Psalms 8:4–6. It says, “What is man that thou are mindful of him; the son of man that thou visiteth him? Thou maketh him a little lower than Elohim—than God. Thou Crowneth him with Glory and honor.” I was checking into the word glory and what it meant and here is what the Lord was revealing and as we were praying. It’s that God is bringing us to that place where we walk with Him but don’t stay with the initial revelation but walk in the fullness of what He has for us through those doors.

Kabod is the Hebrew word for glory and there are quite a number of synonyms. We have splendor, dignity, wealth, riches, honor, extra ordinary privileges, valor, nobility, commerce, wisdom, favor, copiousness, reverence, numbers, reputation, and abundance just in that word alone. If you read in Psalms 8:5 it says that “He has crowned us with honor” and verse six says, “Thou hast made him to have dominion over the works of His hands and He’s put all things under our feet.” When you read Hebrew 2:6–8 you see the same recollection there but in reference to Jesus Christ restoring that position for us. We now are called to press through, and we’ve come through those doors I believe. We should now take His Word and go to where the Word has been prepared for us.

So we are not looking back anymore. We are pressing forward. Light is sown for the righteous. We are looking to take the next step and then take the next step. We take the next step as the light has been sown for us. Amen.

Continued praying…

Thank You, Father, that there are more rooms, more doors, and more light yet to come
We are so abundantly, supernaturally blessed!
We serve such a great God!—Heavenly Father
Thank You, Father, for the blood and the light to go all the way through
Praying every day for that light to come forth—thanking You for it in Jesus’ name
