Prayer Summary for Thursday, January 28, 2016

Morning prayer was primarily worship…

Jerre and Mary led in worship…

♪ For You are great, You do miracles so great, there is no one else like You, there is no one else like You… You deserve the glory and the honor… Lord, we lift our hands in worship as we lift Your holy name. You deserve the glory and the honor. Lord, we lift our hands in worship as we lift Your holy name. ♪

I keep hearing this in my heart. I don’t know if it concerns someone in here, but somebody has heard “There is no way.” I don’t know if it’s a voice of a relative or a friend or someone else that’s continually said, “There is no way.” I say today, take the “no” out of that declaration and insert an “a” and say, “There is a way.” There’s a way! There is a way! There’s always a way.

Jerre sang…

♪ The Lord makes a way when there is no way… Lord, You make a way when there is no way… We put our trust in You, for You are the way maker. We declare and we believe and we speak it out that You are the way maker…♪

Mary sang…

♪ As we lean into You, You are leading and guiding us every step of the way, O Lord of Lords. We are drawing nearer to You. And we can see with eyes of clarity and we step out in faith, what You show us, ever leaning into You, a strength, a help, O God. As we walk in all authority, as we walk in all dominion, we rise above this world. Its strength and power from above, standing declaring Your truth, O Lord, whatever You say we speak, we do what we hear our Father say. O Lord, we are strong in You. You are the very strength of our lives today. And every day, Lord, walking out in victory, step by step victory to victory. We are Your hands and feet, O Lord. We are Your voice, O Lord. We are strong in the Lord and the power of His might. You are a strength, a help. You are our Lord. So rise up, rise up. We stand strong in You. We walk out and speak the very truth. It is Your love, it is Your love, nothing in this world can satisfy me. Jesus, You are alone can fill me up. I could gain the world and all its treasure but all those things would never be enough. It is Your love. It is Your goodness. It is Your kindness and compassion that fill us up inside. It is Your grace, Your tender mercies, it is Your presence in our lives that satisfies. ♪

Mary shared…

We sang that for ourselves, but now we sing it for others that they would experience His love, His goodness, His mercy, His grace. Experience His tangible presence as we’ve been praying for others, Lord, that they would experience and know You the way You desire them to know You. To understand Your goodness, Lord, all that You have died for.

Pastor Ray shared…

Mary, when you sang “just what You want us to sing, Lord, or pray,” I had my eyes closed and I was looking downward and all of a sudden, I saw the earth and it was green and blue. The greens and blues kept changing, being rearranged. He made me understand that the green represented people that have never experienced that love. They don’t know about the love of God and have never experienced it for themselves. As you kept singing, the colors would change. So let’s pray over these that you’ve been singing to and pray that this love from heaven would be manifested in an even greater way.

Mary prayed…

Lord, that it would penetrate their hearts
Every part of their beings to experience and knowing Your love
The very pureness of Your love, that they would see and know that it’s You, Father
It’s a great undeniable that it will cause things to melt off of them
It will cause scales to be removed
Anything that would hold them back, be removed
We speak to those demonic spirits to be removed in Jesus’ name
Out of the way!
The blood of Jesus over each one
Pouring out in to those refugee camps, into the places
A greater revelation of Your love
The flood, the flood, the Holy Ghost flood sweeping away
Into the Holy Ghost river
It’s a tuning up, tuning to each one

Pastor Ray shared…

I thought to review 1st Corinthians 13 about His love. The Message version says, “If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.” Then he goes on to say what love is.
Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

8-10 Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled. 11 When I was an infant at my mother’s breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good. 12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! 13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.”

I felt to read that because of our position or places in prayer. It hit me when Mary started singing about love and reaching out toward others and sending a supply to missionaries all over the earth. We’re calling out for others and praying for them that us as pray-ers that we’d be sure we keep that love operating through us. So we’ll always be more concerned about others than ourselves. And we’ll do these things and never quit. I love those declarations. His love never gives up. That makes us never give up. We don’t get into pride. We’re humble in His love.

Father, we continually look to You. We know we don’t see everything clearly. Thank You for what You’ve revealed to us. We believe that because of what You said in Your Word, that mysteries will continually be revealed to each one of us. You have shown us the way for the days and weeks that are to come.
