Prayer Summary for January 21


The following excerpt and song were taken from The Power of the Blood by H.A. Maxwell Whyte:

Protection From Muggers

A lady who originally worshipped in our church before she went to work as a nurse in Chicago was suddenly accosted one evening by two youths, one of whom was wielding a knife. The lady saw the youth approaching with the open knife pointed at her stomach. Her first reaction was to freeze, but then she remembered her authority as a child of God, and she spoke the Word. She said, “I plead the blood of Jesus against you, and I rebuke you in Jesus’ name.” Then lunging forward she said, “Give me that knife,” and the youth released it into her hand. She then moved toward him and said, “You stand right there.” Then she commanded the second young man-in the name of Jesus-to go into an adjacent building and telephone the police to come and pick the boys up. He immediately obeyed her. When the police arrived, the youth who had called them ran away. The police arrested the boy whom she had been detaining at knifepoint; later they picked up the other boy also. The lady was unharmed because Jesus said, “Nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19)

Just a woman? Yes, but she is “mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds” (2 Corinthians 10:4)

Spontaneous Overflowing

At the end of January, 1908, in Westport Hall, Kilsyth, Scotland, there was a visitation of the Holy Spirit that began spontaneously by the pleading of the blood. A brother named John Reid, sitting in the middle of the prayer group, suddenly raised his hand and started to plead the blood, saying, “Blood, blood, blood!” Immediately the Spirit descended upon the group, and thirteen young people went to their knees and began to speak in other tongues. It was the pleading of the blood that brought the outpouring.

It was around this same time that Mrs. Woodworth-Etter was holding her great meetings in Los Angeles and Chicago. She used to hold her arms aloft and say to the people, “I sprinkle the blood of Jesus upon you,” and she made a motion with her hands as if she were actually doing it. People would come running to the front of the auditorium, and many fell prostrate, speaking in tongues and receiving healing.

The pleading of the blood was an accepted revelation of the Holy Spirit in the early days of the Pentecostal outpouring. However, like many other divine revelations, it was lost as man’s organizations came in to replace the supernatural workings of the Spirit.

No Limit to Using the Blood in Faith

In the early days of the outpouring of the Spirit in the twentieth century, Mrs. Nazum of California used to teach her listeners in her Pentecostal meetings to sprinkle the blood upon their loved ones, their children, and all that God had given them. Didn’t the children of Israel actually splash blood on their buildings? Is there any limit to using the blood in faith against satanic powers and the darkness of the world? Wouldn’t it be good if congregations of Christians were to stand united in pleading the blood of Jesus against the demonic forces now trying to take over our cities and our young people?

I believe that the church has yet to discover the deeper dimension of spiritual warfare through pleading the blood. Great miracles can take place if we learn this secret. There is wonder-working power in the blood!

“There Is Power in the Blood”
(Words and Music by Lewis E. Jones, 1899)

Verse 1
Would you be free from the burden of sin?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood;
Would you over evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful power in the blood.

Verse 2
Would you be free from your passion and pride?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood;
Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide;
There’s wonderful power in the blood.

Verse 3
Would you be whiter, much whiter than snow?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood;
Sin stains are lost in its life-giving flow.
There’s wonderful power in the blood.

Verse 4
Would you do service for Jesus your King?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood;
Would you live daily His praises to sing?
There’s wonderful power in the blood.

There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood of the Lamb;
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb

Praying over the conduct of ministry in the Church that it would be right all the time!
Thank you for Holy Ghost alignment in the Church
Where the power of the blood has been set aside or lost in these days, we declare that it will come back stronger
Greater revelation will come forth, in Jesus’ name!
Declarations about the blood and faith in that blood would begin to increase
Cutting some things off right now, in Jesus’ name
Doors that need to be closed we close them this morning, and put a lock of the blood upon that door-It will never be opened again, it is over!
