Prayer Summary for Friday, May 29, 2015

Pastor Ray shared…

When you don’t know what to do, you pray in the Spirit. When you don’t know what to sing, you sing in the Spirit. Today, I wanted to go through Psalm 84. I like verse 5, “Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.” (Amp.) Isn’t that true? It’s about the heart. This psalm talks so much about getting out of our mind and getting over in His presence.

Psalm 84:1 “How lovely are Your tabernacles, O Lord of hosts! 2 My soul yearns, yes, even pines and is homesick for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out and sing for joy to the living God. 3 Yes, the sparrow has found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young—even Your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God. 4 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are those who dwell in Your house and Your presence; they will be singing Your praises all the day long. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! 5 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the highways to Zion. 6 Passing through the Valley of Weeping (Baca), they make it a place of springs; the early rain also fills [the pools] with blessings. 7 They go from strength to strength [increasing in victorious power]; each of them appears before God in Zion. 8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! 9 Behold our shield [the king as Your agent], O God, and look upon the face of Your anointed! 10 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [anywhere else]; I would rather be a doorkeeper and stand at the threshold in the house of my God than to dwell [at ease] in the tents of wickedness. 11 For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. 12 O Lord of hosts, blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, and that without fear or misgiving]!”

We must remind ourselves where that connection is, and it’s in our hearts. All of the highways to God, our plans, our purposes with the Father, by the Spirit, has called each one of us individually. We each have a different twist, a different flavor, different plans, but they all connect together. As the Word says, compacted together, one with another in the body of Christ.


We’re so thankful for Your presence this morning that we get to be in Your presence, that You made a way for us to continually come before You. That every day is a new day. You never change, but You are always on the move and things are always changing on this earth. Things that we’ve looked for change, they’re changing. Many things that we didn’t even know needed to be changed, they’re changing too. We set ourselves in that presence and stay in it and yield to it. We thank You for it this morning, in Your wonderful precious holy name. We believe we’re directed and led by Your Spirit. We turn up our “yielders” so to speak and we yield to You. We give it all to You. We humble ourselves before You. We trust in You. We know that in You, we can do all things. Knowing that it’s not us but it’s all You. We thank You for it.

Jerre led in worshipful prayer…

Father, when we hear the word “presence”—in Your presence—let us always remember that in Your presence is the fullness of joy. But Father, help us to stay, to walk in that joy. Help us to stay in the spirit, Lord. Holy Spirit, when we step off the path, I ask You to remind us, tell us to step back on the path, step back on the highway. Thank You, Holy Spirit, You bring all things to our remembrance. And in Your presence is fullness of joy. And everything, Father, that we need has already been given to us on the inside. You’ve given us everything that we need. It’s all in there. So Holy Spirit, remind us again that it’s all in there. The kingdom of heaven is within and all that we need—faith is in there, the answers are in there, the way to walk is in there, Your joy is in there bubbling up, bubbling up, bubbling up… You cause it to bubble up. We just say, “Yes, Sir, ha, ha, ha…” Thank You, Lord, for it. We let it bubble today. Father, today You had me sit down on that spot and just sit there in Your promise. The whole earth filled with the knowledge of God. We sit down in that, Lord. That’s Your promise. The whole earth filled with the knowledge of the Lord. And, Father, I know it is our assignment to stay there, to know that, to hold to that, to proclaim and declare it to all the earth. That is our place, Lord. That is the place where we sit down in. The whole earth filled with the knowledge of the Lord. It helps us, Lord. Father, it so helps us to sit in that place where no darkness is. We sit down and breathe the air of heaven for a little while here. And let our eyes see it… see it… see it… the whole earth filled with the knowledge of the Lord. Thank You, Father, for it. Your Word says there is a proper way to appropriate; therefore, with joy we draw water from the wells of salvation. That’s the way we draw it—with joy. That’s the way you have ordained it. There is no fear and no anxiety and there is no fearful praying, but with joy we draw water from the wells of salvation. We leak the sound of heaven…

[corporate singing and praying in the spirit]

♪ Drawing water, drawing water, drawing the water… You are my salvation… I will trust and I will not be afraid… Lord, my God, You are my strength and my song… I’ll sing Your song… It’s a song of victory… And with joy I will draw water from the well of salvation… No matter what is happening around me, no matter how I feel it is with joy I draw water from the well, from Your well… a deep well, a deep well… everything that I need is in that well… You know just what I need… You know the perfect word to speak to me… Well of salvation, bubble up, bubble up… You always come through for me, O Lord… You have a plan to lift me, Lord, and set my feet upon a solid rock… You have a plan for restoration, Lord… Restoration, the spirit of restoration… You’re so good at it, Lord… We pray for Your plan, O Lord, way down the road… You have a way for me, Lord… And we declare “Open up the gates! In the name of Jesus, open up the avenue of the Spirit.” The plan, the plan, the plan… It’s Your plan for Your glory, Lord… Increase, increase, increase… See the way, see the way… We see the way, Lord… We declare it, we speak it, we create it… Devil, take the lid off in the name of Jesus! Take that lid off in Jesus’ name… ♪

Miss Jerre, I keep hearing “Turn the page.” Just turn the page on it. Don’t stay status quo. Just because I moved back then and moved in that way, this is not then. This is now and it’s a new day for My operation of the Holy Spirit in and through you, so turn the page over into the new! And trust Me all the way through, for you’ve never been here before. You’ve never even gone this way before. I created it. I made it to be, so begin to walk in the new and turn the page when I tell you to!

Jerre continues…

♪ What’s past is past, it’s done. It’s over and it’s through. And now there is a new day dawning. It’s done. A new day dawning. It’s a good day for us, O Lord… Higher and higher, upward and upward… Great things to come… Things you can’t even imagine right now, things are in your future, things that bring great joy, greater than you’ve ever experienced before… Greater than before… The glory of the latter house is greater than what was before… The glory of the latter house, You promised O Lord, be greater than what was before… No, we won’t look back… We’ll look forward, Lord… Forward into victory You have prepared for us… Days of heaven on earth, we sit down in heaven on earth… We will proclaim it, Lord… From the north and south to the east and west, we proclaim heaven on earth… Even when it doesn’t look that way… This is what we’re supposed to say… Heaven on earth… it’s our assignment, Lord… it’s a place we’re supposed to live in… I see it, Lord… We apprehend it by faith… All the things in heaven, we appropriate on earth… We’re supposed to live higher… Joy bells ringing, I hear the joy bells ringing… Let the joy bells ring in Your people’s ears… Heaven’s joy bells are ringing; open your ears and hear the sound from heaven… There are good things coming to you… For You are high and holy… ♪

Declarations in prayer…

Those are connections, those are higher ways
There’s a newness, a refreshing there
It’s a new day, a new destination, a new sign, a new river, a new stream
Circle around that and pray over it liberally
A new way to see, a paradigm and shift
Everything works for good
It’s turning out for good
We’re called according to Your purpose, Lord
No matter what it looks like, I declare “Everything works out for me”
It changes and rearranges, and we take our place in the battle, Lord
You make the way
Bridges—ways to go over and through
Connections to be made and plans to be carried out
In the name of Jesus Christ, I bind Satan, the accuser of the brethren, I command you to stop and desist now, no longer speaking that word to the people of God, in Jesus’ name
Light be there in the minds of Your people
Favor, divine favor, supernatural favor and knowing it in the hearts of Your people
You make Your face shine upon Your people, Lord

Pastor Ray spoke…

Let’s pray in tongues for a while and believe God to pray out that divine favor for the people. We all have different gifts and supplies, so each one of us, for a little while, let’s pray in other tongues and believe for that favor to go forth. It creates opportunities for the supernatural blessings from heaven upon the people.

Continued praying…

Favor in so many ways
Open, open, open and flowing in all areas
Favor in businesses, favor in homes
Even favor from the enemy
All the avenues open to favor
Favor for the pastors and for the people
It changes minds and it opens hearts
A turnaround, a turnaround in Jesus’ name
It could be shocking the change that will take place
It could be a shock to those that observe the change that has come
But it’s the favor of God
My! What a change! What a turn!
It’s supernatural, it’s by the spirit, it’s by faith
It’s by the direction of the Holy Spirit
Pass the key to go through the favor door
It’s time for the turnaround, turning, turning, turning
A favor day
Taste and see that the Lord is good
Thank You, Lord, for Your favor
You have a plan that is so beautiful, a plan of restoration
A plan of restoration, beyond what we could ask or think
We thank You for it, Lord

I had this come to me. I love reading about men and women and what the Lord has done in their lives, like brother Hagin especially. I love to read and go over the prophecies that he declared. But I just felt the Spirit saying to me that those days are over and we’ve entered into new days, as we “turn the page.” These are not the old days, but these are the days that brother Hagin prophesied about. When he said “we are right on the verge of that glory,” these are the days that he was speaking about. Thank You, Father, for the flow of Your Spirit today. Thank You for enabling us to go out into the new, to pray it out and sing it out. We get it that these are new days. You’ve put Your Spirit within us, enabling us to press out ahead. These are glory days filled with Your presence enabling us to carry out Your plan and purpose.
