Ms. Annie led us singing We Give Thanks for Life’s Greatest Treasure

Pastor Ray shared…

When Ms. Annie came in, I asked her to do a song on the piano. And the piano was my mother-in-law’s. She is in Heaven so I am hoping she could heard it and it blessed her, just the fact that it is here in the Chapel. And that’s something that she did every day. She played the piano and keyboard. She had a keyboard set on top of her piano and she would go back and forth. She prayed a lot for this church and even prayed that there would be a church here. Sometimes she would ask me to come over to do some lawn work and if I was there in the early afternoon, I could hear her clear out into the yard. The sound would come through the piano and her voice was like operatic.

Sometimes in church she would always want to sit in the front because she wanted to smile at Pastor Mac (ha, ha, ha). I love it. She said it was because she noticed that a lot of people would just sit there not responding so much. I know I said this before but my oldest son would play drums and she would come early so she could watch him rehearse and wave at him (ha, ha, ha). It’s cool because the thing is we never would have made it here. Sandy and I and our family, we would have never made it to this church… unless God maybe would have made another way. But for us that is how we got here because she came to one of the first meetings in Plymouth at the hotel. She kept pushing us, I mean dragging us from church to church to church until she got to this church. And then she never left which is blessed.

It’s just nice to hear the piano here in the Chapel and such a beautiful song. We appreciate it, Ms. Annie.

I know it’s not Thanksgiving yet but I wanted to go down through a few scriptures on giving thanks.

Scripture focus…

(19) How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you.
(20) In the shelter of your presence you hide them from all human intrigues; you keep them safe in your dwelling from accusing tongues. Psalm 31:19–20 (NIV)

(1) O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
(2) Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
(3) For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
(4) In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
(5) The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
(6) O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.
(7) For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. Today if ye will hear his voice, Psalm 95:1–7 (NIV)

Pastor Ray…

I heard someone say yesterday, speaking about all those in the NFL that would not stand for the anthem at the beginning of their games. And he said “We bow down and we kneel before our Saviour but we stand for the flag!” I love it.

(1) Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all you lands!
(2) Serve the Lord with gladness! Come before His presence with singing!
(3) Know (perceive, recognize, and understand with approval) that the Lord is God! It is He Who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]! We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
(4) Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name!
(5) For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations. Psalm 100: 1–5 (KJV)

Continued praying…

I am thankful that we can enter into these doors here in this chapel
That we can enter in and gather together in one accord
Thank You, Father, for the power of Your Holy Spirit
For a room, a place, a chapel that we can come before You
And lift up our voices in one accord, giving You all of the glory and all of the praise
Lift up our nation, our leaders, lift, lift, lift!
Thank You, Father, that you have given us a place
Ground to stand on and seats to sit on – hallelujah! Glory to God!
We are thankful to You, Lord, for You are good and Your mercy is everlasting and Your truth endures

(1) O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
(8) Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind,
(9) for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. Psalm 107:1, 8–9 (NIV)

(1) I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever.
(2) Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.
(3) Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.
(4) One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.
(5) They speak of the glorious splendour of your majesty – and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
(6) They tell of the power of your awesome works – and I will proclaim your great deeds.
(7) They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness. Psalms 145:1–7 (NIV)

(28) O nations of the world, recognize the Lord, recognize that the Lord is glorious and strong.
(29) Give to the Lord the glory he deserves! Bring your offering and come into his presence. Worship the Lord in all his holy splendor.
(30) Let all the earth tremble before him. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken.
(34) Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. I Chronicles 16:28–30 (NLT)

Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. I Chronicles 29:11 (NIV)

Continued praying…

Words are inadequate when we think about Your goodness and Your mercy toward us, how You have taken care of us, how You have made a way for us. If we as human beings, as each one of us look back in our lives, we know without a doubt that you have taken care of us. You have made a way for us.

Thank You for the connections and the relationship in the ministries and positions and the places and the jobs and the finances and the health
It just goes on and on and on
Because You are such a good, good, good God!
We honor and give You all of the glory this morning
In our days and weeks and months that are to come
You are still the same, always good unto Your children

We reverence Your great supernatural presence among us
Welcoming You with open arms and hearts
More of Your manifested presence in and around and through us
Holy Spirit, thank You for refreshing us
Every day is new with new plans
You lead us always into all truth
Thank You, thank You, thank You, Lord
Great are You, Lord!
We yield ourselves to more of Your manifested presence
Holy Spirit, thank You for refreshing us every day
Thank You that every day is a new day
And there are new ways, new plans
You said You would lead, thank You Father

A Word of the Lord Came Forth:

I heard this in Ms. Annie’s tongues right away. There are some things that have been holding on and seemingly they have not changed day after day and week after week and month after month. But by My power, by My strength, and through Your faith in Me, these things are coming to an end. These delays are coming to an end. These things that have not come through, these avenues that are new, these ways for me and you, these things are coming to an end. And by My power, these avenues, or doors or ways, almost like a freeway, they will be. One will take place and then another one and then another one and there will not be any stopping for it shall continually increase. It will be like, what it would be like, one step up and another step up further and another step up higher, more and more and more of My glory working on your behalf. So, don’t look down but look up! Don’t look back, but look out (ha, ha, ha) and watch with the eyes of your faith in great expectation for it will make a difference in your race. And you are in a race. But you shall fulfill the destiny and the things I have called you to fulfill. It’s your race but it is My race. It is your plans but it is My plans. In some ways, your contending has not been in Me but it has been in your flesh. So, just look unto Me, contend, expect, believe, and receive for all good things come from heaven above. Hallelujah.

Continued praying…

We want to make sure that He knows that we know what He has done for us
But in a way when we do that, we are looking ahead and we are looking out into the new
And thanking Him in advance for what He will do

Ms. Annie led us singing Give Thanks With a Grateful Heart

Ms. Jeani…

I just looked up the definition of cornucopia which is the horn that overflows at Thanksgiving. And I am just thinking of the reference of the horn or His salvation. And one of the definitions of cornucopia is “endless supply.”

Continued praying…

So we thank God for His endless supply
For the sudden-lies of the Most High
And we thank Him that in the waiting He’s just enlarged our territory
He tells us to enlarge our tent because an endless supply is upon us today
And so we thank Him for that
We are prepared, we are ready to receive endless supply
With thanksgiving, with joy and laughter today
Wiping off hindrance and delay
Walking away and turning away and we receive fullness of endless supply
That horn overflows!
Our tents enlarged to receive it all today, today, today
Thank You, Daddy! The joy of His fullness and the expectancy of today
Delay is out of thinking
We repent for the kingdom of God is near
Every opportunity we have to repent, opportunity to receive the manifestation of heaven on earth
And we thank You for it now because it’s ours today
You are the best Abba and we receive it today
Literally, literally, literally today!
Here on earth, here in our day, here in our cars, here in our drive,
Here in our conversations – we receive it today
That is the only way we receive
That’s the only thing we will ever accept
We thank You for it now

Ms. Annie led us singing He is More than Enough

Pastor Ray…

I asked Jeani when she was finished if she prayed about cars? She said no. But I heard car. So, if you have been believing for a new car, He is our all sufficient one, El Shaddaih, and a car you shall drive that is new and it’s been created for you and you shall see it in your driveway (ha, ha, ha).

Ms. Jeani…

Father, we thank You for testimonies!

Pastor Ray…

We agree that you shall see that new car and you will jump with glee for it is His given to you by authority from heaven and these things shall come to pass. So, expect it. If you are looking for something bigger, it will be bigger. If you are looking for something newer, it will be newer. If you are looking for something smaller, it will be smaller. But whatever it is that you need, personally for you, we agree today as touching it in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah. Thank You, Lord.

The following is a prayer for our nation by Pastor Lynne Hammond:

Father, in the name of Jesus, and according to your Word, we pray for those in authority in our nation. We lift up President Donald Trump, his family, his staff and cabinet members. Let Your Word cling to them and let them not depart from your plan. Strengthen them with mighty power by your Spirit to stand against wickedness, lies and deception. Guide President Trump’s decisions; let Your light shine upon his path and show him the path of reversal for every evil way.

[Father, that the tables are always turning in the Whitehouse toward righteousness, peace and joy because Your presence is over that Whitehouse, over our president, over everyone that surrounds President Trump.]

Continually surround him with godly men and women who impart wise counsel to him.

[Father, those that let light shine! They command that light to shine, Father. Your ways and Your purposes and Your path that it be clear before Him.]

Cause the way of the wicked to be set to confusion and come to nothing.

[Father, just according to Your Word, their way is set to confusion and they hold no bonds, no ability to keep their delusions together because of the greatness of Your light that shines over the Whitehouse. They absolutely come to nothing, they disappear, become like a non-existent thing and they are not seriously remembered because of that overwhelming light of your goodness, Lord, that turns men’s hearts from wickedness to You. We declare that repentance, that change of mind over everyone that is in authority over this nation.]

Deliver us from the traps and snares the enemy has laid for us, and let the wicked be caught in their own devises and be brought to [an open] shame.

We take authority over the plots and plans of the enemy against this nation. Let prideful and lying lips be silenced in Jesus’ name. Slanderers will not be established in America. We pray for our Congress, our Supreme Court, our Military leaders and our intelligence agencies. Let the wisdom that is from above reign in this nation and be constantly speaking to our leaders.

[Their ears are tuned into what You are saying, Father. We plead the blood of Jesus over their ears and declare them to be ornaments of fine gold, that they only hear You and the voice of the wicked one, Father, they do not hear. We declare it to be static in Jesus’ name.]

We exercise the authority you have given us to tread down all the power of the enemy. We cast down and demolish imaginations and arguments that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God,

[All of the strongholds come down in the name of Jesus. Ways of thinking, Father, that are wrong. We speak to those ways and command them “Come down in the name of Jesus!” All that exalts itself against the knowledge of God! We adjure you in Jesus’ name! Not in our country!]

And we bring into captivity those thoughts to the obedience of Christ.

[And that’s Jesus going all the way to the Cross, His obedience!]

We bind spirits of strife and division, civil wars and tumults, spirits of hostility, lawlessness and blasphemy, and fires from hell that have burned in our cities.

[Those lawless spirits that do not obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the good news that has set us free from this present world order!]

We speak grace and peace over America. We pray and believe for the voice of truth, salvation, revival, and restoration to be proclaimed and heard across our land. Grant unto your servants everywhere that with all boldness we may speak Your Word.

[Your Church, Father, emboldened! Grant them, Father, that they may speak Your Word!]

We pray for a mighty outpouring of your Spirit with signs, wonders, and miracles – that accompany Your Word when it is spoken by the Spirit boldly from that place that You have granted us, Lord! The Authority of the Church rising up!

We expect the wisdom of this world that is earthly, sensual, and devilish to depart and vanish until Your mighty work in America becomes a beacon of hope for all people everywhere.

[In all the nations, Father, Your name shall be great! And it’s going forth from this nation, hitting all the nations, Father. Raising that standard to bring to all the nations the knowledge of Your goodness, Lord. And the hearts of men turning to You in repentance, and being made whole.]

We expect the voice of rejoicing to be heard in our nation for your goodness, mercy, and prosperity, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
