Prayer Summary for Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Scripture focus…

I saw this morning something I never really thought about in the Message translation in the 6th chapter of John. So, you know a lot of things have gone on and Jesus went up to pray after they fed 5,000.

In the evening His disciples went down to the sea, got in the boat, and headed back across the water to Capernaum. It had grown quite dark and Jesus had not yet returned. A huge wind blew up, churning the sea. They were maybe three or four miles out when they saw Jesus walking on the sea, quite near the boat. They were scared senseless, but He reassured them, “It’s me. It’s all right. Don’t be afraid.” So they took Him on board. In no time, they reached land—the exact spot they were headed to. John 6:16–21(MSG)

When I read that in the past I thought well “in no time” would mean pretty fast or something. But it just stuck out to me and I thought wait a second, in “no time.” So they are in the middle of the lake, three or four miles out, and in “no time” they reached the land. Can you get a picture of that? They were either translated or that boat was flying. I mean one or the other. Then I went on to read it in the Amplified version.

(16) When evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, (17) and they got into a boat and started to cross the sea to Capernaum. It was already dark, and Jesus had still not come [back] to them. (18) The sea was getting rough and rising high because a strong wind was blowing. (19) Then, when they had rowed three or four miles [and were near the center of the sea], they saw Jesus walking on the sea and approaching the boat; and they were [terribly] frightened. (20) But Jesus said to them, “It is I (I Am); do not be afraid.” (21) Then they were willing to take Him on board the boat, and immediately the boat reached the [shore of the] land to which they were going. John 6:16–25 (AMP)

Interesting here that after He said “Don’t be afraid” then they were willing to take Him on board. Hello, they were an unusual bunch (ha, ha, ha). You would think that right away they would be like “Ok, It’s Jesus.” But He had to tell them who He was. The Message translation said in “no time” and then the Amplified said “immediately.” I looked up the King James Version also.

(16) And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea, (17) And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them. (18) And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew. (19) So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. (20) But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. (21) Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went. John 6:16–25 (KJV)

The following excerpt was taken from “First of All…” by Billye Brim:

Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin, whose books and publications I edited from 1970–1980, was granted a vision in which he saw three demonic frog-like creatures rise up out of the waters of the Atlantic Ocean off of Florida. They hopped along the eastern seaboard and landed in Washington D.C. He was made to know their satanic intent was to harm this nation: He was shown, however, that this evil plan could be stopped by the prayers of the people of God. He was instructed to come back to Tulsa (he’d been on a ministry trip) and to start a regular prayer meeting to stop this strategy of the enemy. He initiated a daily prayer group, which stayed focused for a while, but let up in its initial purpose. When the Watergate scandal with all its complexities and cover-ups caused great hurt to the nation, the Lord told Brother Hagin this was what had been revealed to him in the vision.

Then he was told something to this effect, I am not going to hold the Republican Party primarily responsible for this; I’m going to hold you primarily responsible for this. For I revealed it to you, and the church could have stopped it. Whatever happens in this nation happens because the church allows it to happen.

I heard Brother Hagin say this was one of the hardest things he ever had to pray and receive forgiveness for. But he did!

Considering all of this! I realize that the success of President Trump’s Administration, or any future administration, falls primarily upon the shoulders of the Body of Christ.
It came into my mind, and I knew it was of the Lord, to initiate a campaign. Not a political campaign. But a spiritual campaign. A prayer campaign. A “FIRST OF ALL” Campaign. A campaign which calls upon believers to commit to pray FIRST OF ALL for our leaders just as our Lord instructs in His Word.

FIRST OF ALL before we pray for our families, before we pray for ourselves, before we pray for the lost, before we pray for our jobs or businesses, our finances, our ministries, before we pray for anything, we are instructed to pray for our leaders, for kings (today it’s usually presidents, prime ministers, etc.) and those in authority.

My daughter-in-law, Candace Brim, sent me the following Andrew Murray quote: “the man who mobilizes the Christian church to pray will make the greatest contribution to world evangelization in history.”

In His great plan, quite beyond my comprehension, the Lord has called and anointed me to “help the pray-ers,” So through the various platforms the Lord has graciously granted me, I began to call for people to commit. To phone us or write us and to say, “Count me in. I commit to pray every day FIRST OF ALL for our leaders.”

If we had obeyed First Timothy 2:1 as we should have, this nation would not have known the darkness and division it has suffered. Satan (and his kingdom of darkness) is behind division. He seeks to divide and conquer.

The kingdom of the Light can and must overcome his evil plots. The most powerful weapon we have is obedience to the Word of God. And particularly concerning good government, obedience to First Timothy 2:1. As we should have, this nation would not have known the darkness and division it has suffered. Satan (and his kingdom of darkness) is behind division. He seeks to divide and conquer. The kingdom of the Light can and must overcome his evil plots. The most powerful weapon we have is obedience to the Word of God. And particularly concerning good government, obedience to First Timothy 2:1. We can unite in this effort and overcome the enemy’s plot to destroy us through division.

This is a commandment with promise. The revealed purpose of God is that we can expect to receive a time in which we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. A time conductive to people being saved and coming into the knowledge of the truth.

Is this even possible in a time such as this? God didn’t put a time limit on the promise. When these Holy Spirit inspired words were given through Paul, Timothy was the young pastor of the church in Ephesus. Ephesus was a wicked city that worshipped the goddess Artemis. The Roman Empire was in the throes of its most evil emperors such as Nero. Christians and Jews were thrown to lions in bloodthirsty games in the great arenas. Nero dipped them in pitch and burned them as human torches. The kings were evil. But the church was instructed to pray for them and to expect their prayers to bring about what God said they would.

If you are a believer in the truth of the Bible, you are commanded to pray first of all for your leaders, whether or not you like them. Whether or not you voted for them. Won’t you please do so? And won’t you please commit to do so?


Father, we pray over all the positions of authority over our nation
Divine supernatural wisdom and understanding for our leaders
Beginning with our President, our vice president
Congress, Senate, all the way on down
Every person in a position of authority be they politically or in the Church
Pleading the blood of Jesus this morning over each and every one of them
So that is will go well with us
Supernatural rearranging and changing in Jesus’ name
Taking authority over the division
And just like that boat went suddenly over to the other side
We believe in Jesus’ name by faith, we receive what we say
And we say, division, you have to get out!
And the peace of God that passes all understanding would become so big in this nation
That once again Your glorious presence would move from shore to shore
From north to the south to the east to the west
Crisscross all across this nation
One nation under God indivisible
We will not be divided, we curse that
Any form of division, any form of rebellion or those things that try to stir people and dive them up
A unified Church in Jesus’ name
There are many streams of ministry, different kinds of ministries
Thank God that we are not just exactly the same
But You have called each one of us for a specific direction
Thank You, Father, we take responsibility over the plan and the purpose that You have called us to do
For our Churches, this church
We lift and pray over our leaders, Pastor Mac and Pastor Lynne
The blood covering over them
Every single thing that they need, we believe it shall be there for them
Wholeness and health and wealth and prosperity of every kind over them
In Jesus’ name
Declare today supernatural wisdom to do and to speak and to operate in the things that You have called them to do
Praying over Pastor Lynne in Branson
Thank You that she will have divine supernatural utterance in the power of the Holy Spirit
By the words that she speaks, the prayers that she prays
Through the anointing of the Holy Ghost
Many others will begin to come up and come in
Into the place of prayer
Miracles, supernatural events, signs, wonders
Thank You for revival in Jesus’ name
That the Church is waking up
Those that are sleeping – wake up now in Jesus’ name
We lean not on our own understanding but we trust in You and in Your ways
Miracles, absolute signs, things that we have never seen before
Be believe You for it, Lord!
We believe for the sudden-lies
Even in no time – it shall come to pass
Immediately! You are an immediate God
You are an immediate Father!
No, we are not trusting in man’s ways but we are trusting in Your way and Your will
In Your plan and in Your purpose for each man, woman, and child in Jesus’ name
We see an abundance, we see the harvest, we see what You said – that the harvest is ripe
We pray this morning for the laborers to go forth
That there would be a great reaping in Jesus’ name
For we know, Father, what we sow we shall reap
Each day, every day – things that were sown yesterday, we believe to reap it today
A great reaping in Jesus’ name!
Increase of every kind
We push out into unknown territories
Into new areas and new arenas
Pulling up some stakes today!
Turning, turning, turning and changing
Our prayers turning into a circular motion
All around us individually and all around us corporately
Every limit get out of the way today!
Those eyes that are open and those hearts that are open will bring about the great, great, great, awakening
Thank You for revival of all kinds
More and more and more
More influence, a greater influence
More and more out further
Oh, we fill out every state that has boxed us in and we push out the wall
And look out and look over the whole earth in Jesus’ name
We know time is moving quickly
Changes, changes, changes, supernatural changes
We believe You for it, Lord
With the eyes of our faith looking out way out ahead, we prepare for those days
Thank You, thank You, Lord

Father, You said to repent
For the kingdom of God is near, and the kingdom of God is here
The kingdom of God is within us and we turn
We turn and we let You in the boat
We may have been in fear and doubt and unbelief a moment ago
But when we let You in the boat and turn – immediately! Suddenly!
Right now! Because it’s Your grace, it’s Your mercy
Your promises are eternal and timeless – there is no time in Your promises
We let go of fear and unbelief
It’ is already done
So we turn because the kingdom of God is here on earth
As it is in heaven here on earth today
Right now! Thank You, Daddy!
Oh, we hold fast to it!
For if we don’t quit, we win
Overcoming every wrong way
Stepping into the new
We are strong in You and the power of Your might

Ms. Annie led us singing “Who is Like You Lord”

Continued Praying…

We just declare that You are the Truth and the Truth supersedes facts
We tell the facts to line up to the Truth
That America is one nation under God
Facts line up with the Truth “Do it now!”
In the name of Jesus
Families – we blow division out of there in the name of Jesus
Lack, assignments from the enemy be gone
The truth of the Word
Strong in the Lord and in the power of Your might
Healing and wholeness of every kind
Lining bodies up with the truth of the Word
We are healed, whole, and healthy in Jesus’ name
No weapon formed against us shall prosper
No! Healthy in every way – the Spirit and the body

By the blood of Jesus, we have overcome
Nothing can separate us from Christ Jesus
Nothing present or things to come
He did not spare His only Son
By the blood of Jesus, we are rising now
Into the victory of Jesus
The enemy is under His feet as we stand in Him we are complete
Jesus, Mighty One, Lamb of God,
He is standing, we are found in You
We rest in You all day long
We plead the blood You poured out for us
No condemnation because of all You’ve done
We magnify You, We magnify You
We exalt You Jesus, Holy One
You are the Holy One

Scripture Focus…

(1) He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
(2) I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!
(3) For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
(4) [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler. Psalm 91:1–4 (AMPC)

A Word of the Lord Came Forth:

When? Now, this year, get ready. For some of the things that You have looked only out into way out to the future, they shall begin to pop up and begin to come forth in these days, saith the Lord. In these days as you trust and as you stand strong on what I have said to you, and what I have revealed unto you to do, My Word, My power, My authority, and the anointing will cause these things to come to pass suddenly. Suddenly, saith the Lord, suddenly! Now in Jesus’ name. Where there needed to be a turnaround, it will be turned around. Where there needed to be a paradigm shift so to speak, there will be one. Where there was a need for increase of resources, it shall come. Oh, in your house, in your family, in your operation, in your destinations, the things that I have called you to, look up from where all of your help comes from, all the strength and power, anointing breaks every yoke that has been put up against you or against your plan. For yesterday is over. So step out into today and into the now time of God. Yesterday’s gone and so we forget about it and we let it go.

Continued praying…

Thank You for the blood – right up unto this second, right now, the blood covers us
The blood has cleansed us – the blood makes a way where there was no way
Every opportunity, everything that needs to be adjusted will be adjusted
All of the ingredients, all of the keys, steps, right ways
No matter what it looked like there back then
It is not then back there but it is now
Believing every day to be a “NOW” day
Every day to be a “SUDDENLY” day
We take it in Jesus’ name
What we have sown, the prayers we have prayed
We shall reap! Now is the time
We pray over the souls that must be saved
The laborers to be where they need to be
In Jesus’ name
We worship You and give You thanks for every good thing
You have done and will do for each of us
Thank You, thank You, thank You

Ms. Annie led us singing “Thank You for You Blood”

Continued praying…

We are humbled, we reverence You
Thank You for the power of Your Holy Spirit in us
We always want You in our boat
With you on our side there is nothing we cannot do
We can do everything in and through You as we trust You
So we set our sights out ahead know
Knowing Your strength is our strength
Then too that we have overcome through that precious holy blood
Thank You for this day, we call it blessed
Believing to be right where we need to be
At the right time with the right words
Your anointing works through each one of us
To bring the revelation of Your love
Thank You for it in Jesus’ name amen
