Prayer Summary for Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Ms. Sharon led us singing “Come Lord Jesus Come”

Pastor Ray shared…

Not just individually but corporately together the body of Christ is walking out the prayers that were prayed yesterday or the prayers that were not prayed yesterday. For the preparations must be made through the prayers that have been prayed for the days and the weeks and the months that are to come. But God is calling us as a body, not just this body but the entire body of Christ, to push out into areas and territories and realms where we have never been before to prepare to go through the doors that are open right now and prepare for the tomorrows that are coming. For the time and the times they are moving quickly. Days turn into weeks and weeks into months and suddenly years. A year goes by and another year goes by, time…  So for the body today we’ve been called into even a greater place of declaration or prayers, we could say, preparing the times to come. Lifting, praying, declaring, believing, receiving by faith the operation of the power of the precious Holy Spirit on this earth and there is a lifting and there is greater. More doors follow the doors that are open today. Greater doors of opportunity, they are already on the way, doors that will take us into those realms, those regions, those territories that we have been called to walk out as we walk with the power of the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah.


Thank You, Father, for lifting up the Church
For Your words and Your Word
The power of Your Spirit actively rearranging and changing
Thank You, Holy Spirit, for Your presence in us and manifested presence on us and moving through us today
For utterance, words that we necessarily do not even know
But they are words that You always bring about and do show—thank You for it, Lord

The following except was taken from the Revival Study Bible based on John 14:27:

Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.] John 14:27 (AMPC)

The world is looking for true peace. When revival comes they find what they have been looking for. Only true Christians have peace in this world. Why? Because it is one of the things Jesus left to us before He died. Jesus Christ purchased true peace when He shed His precious blood on Calvary. Mankind first exchanged the peace of God for the deception of Satan in the Garden of Eden. The struggle with sin had begun escalating at an unprecedented rate but Jesus came to destroy the works of the Devil. God gave the gift of His only Son to end the conflict with hell once and for all.

Jesus signed the peace treaty with His own blood (Colossians 1:20). And having made peace through the blood of His Cross it is finished. He is our peace. You must first make peace with God before you can have the peace of God. The Bible says there is no peace for the wicked (Isaiah 48:22). The treaty has been signed. It is time for your surrender. True peace comes only after unconditional surrender. Kneel at the feet of Jesus. Quit fighting your own war. Pull in the troops. Raise up your hands, drop your guns. God has won.

You keep the peace of God by maintaining faith in Him. God is going to keep His part of the treaty. You must maintain your relationship with God and not slip out of fellowship with Him. Our Lord’s peace was great enough to allow Him to endure the theory of the cross as He bore in Himself the sins of the entire world. His peace in you will be great enough to overcome anything you may face. The disciples were about to be used mightily to spread revival throughout the world when they heard this promise and it carried them through beatings, stonings, and even martyrdom.

(God’s peace, the peace that passes all understanding, the kind of peace that only can come from heaven, heavenly peace.)

Continued praying…

Comfort, wisdom, absolute calmness, wholeness, health -that is all in Your Peace
Asking for it for this nation, Lord
Revival throughout every state
United again, the Church will be what the Church is called to be!
Not missing one opportunity to walk in Your peace that passes all understanding
And minister Your love to one another
Thank You, Father

Ms. Sharon leads us singing “Peace, Peace”

♪ Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight
Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;
In celestial strains it unceasingly falls
O’er my soul like an infinite calm.

♪ Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Coming down from the Father above!
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray
In fathomless billows of love!

♪ Ah, soul! are you here without peace or His love,
Striving here to live in your own way
The Savior is calling in mercy and love
O come and taste and see His good ♪


Ms. Sharon continues singing…

♪ Lord we wait on You, Lord we wait on You
Your peace is promised to us
Lord we yield ourselves to You
We need You so much we need Your touch
Come rain down upon us come breath upon us
Come birth through us, come shine through us
We need You so much, We need You so much oh Lord ♪

Pastor Ray shares…

Ms. Sharon, would you sing God Bless America? All the while you were singing that I was watching over America for that peace to change situations that were going one way and move it back over to the God kind of peace way. It is so critical for us to see it in our spirits and expect it as we lift up our nation.

Ms. Sharon leads us singing “God Bless America”

♪ While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. ”

God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home. ♪

Continued praying…

Father, we lay the blood of Jesus over every state
Positions of leadership in this nation and over the body
Lifting them all today
Opening the ways for the move of Your Spirit
From one state to another to another
Praying over the governors—applying the blood for new changes
One nation under God!
Holding fast to the right ways, right plans
To the right decisions that must be made
Into the right way!
Abundance of Your Spirit
Revelation of Your Spirit
That is THE WAY!
Turning, turning, turns
We call you out and pull you down
That spirit of hatred, darkness, be gone in Jesus’ name
Strife be gone! You are uncovered by the blood!
Those people that have been financing this, we call you out
Declaring a stop to those finances
The anarchists, stop and decease in your plans
Oppression is far from us according to Your Word, Father
The Church is rising up and taking her place
There is a rising up, times are changing now
There is a lifting up into the new
Greater ways, greater days
The Spirit of God is moving all over the earth
For the Church is rising up strong and mighty in battle
Mighty through Jesus, strong in the Lord and the power of His might
Mighty in battle—victorious!
When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Lord raises a standard against him
Victorious! Victorious!
We see it, we see it
We enter in and take our place
Without spot or wrinkle, cleansed by the blood
What a beautiful Church, what a God we serve
Miracles—more and more
Signs and wonders too
You are a mighty God
What a great God You are!

Ms. Sharon led us singing “Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart”

♪ Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son
Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son
And now let the weak say, “I am strong”
Let the poor say, “I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us” ♪

Pastor Ray Shared…

We do know to have a thankful heart. We do know that if we are weak, we don’t declare our weakness. We do declare we are strong.

We have overcome by the blood
We know it’s not us – it’s the blood
Great joy in the church!
Boldness and strength comes through the joy
Strength is in the body
We take joy in You, we praise Your name

Ms. Sharon led us singing “Praise Him”

♪ Praise Him!
Praise Him in the morning,
Praise Him in the noontime.
Praise Him!
Praise Him!
Praise Him when the sun goes down! ♪

Pastor Ray shared…

Thank you for joining the tent meeting this morning. (ha, ha, ha) Hallelujah, there is joy in the house of God and that puts a praise in the mouths of the believers! To shout GLORY! To shout GLORY! Hallelujah!

I read that George Whitfield was friends with Benjamin Franklin of all people and Benjamin Franklin would come to his meetings in the eastern part of the United States and he would be speaking to 30,000 people. And so Benjamin Franklin measured out how far and he figured out that George Whitfield’s voice could speak to 30,000 people with no amplification. I had a picture in my spirit of this whole church standing up on top of the building and laughing; laughing over Brooklyn Park, laughing over toward Maple Grove, laughing over New Hope and Crystal, OVER THE CITIES! And declaring STRENGTH TO THE CITIES! Oh my and it would be a great “Ha! Ha! Ha!” on the Devil’s plans and the peace of God and the glory of God and revival and an awakening would begin to come forth. Hallelujah!

Just by faith we do. We see that. That our voices, our prayers go waaayyyy further than just these cities but they do cover and make a difference in the cities we live in. Hallelujah.

Pastor Paul shared…

There is something that has just been in my heart. It’s from Luke 4:18 concerning America.

(18) The Spirit of the Lord is upon America, because he hath anointed America to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent America to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised (19) To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Amen. We agree.
