The following was taught and prayed through during our 6 a.m. prayer time with Joanne Summers
1 Tim 2:1-4
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
- Oh Lord our God, let your sweet beauty rest upon us and give us favour. Come work with us, and then our works will endure, and give us success in all we do – Psalm 90:17 (TPT). Oh, we thank You Father. You’re the exalted One—high and lifted up, Your train fills the temple. Your glory is present. We thank You Your glory is upon us, in us, around us. We’re manifest the glory of God. We humble ourselves before You this morning. We recognize You as King, as Saviour, as Lord. There is no one else. Our hope and expectation is in You. You are our joy and our peace. We thank You for the blood of Jesus. We lift it up over our nation; over our government; over the Church; over our homes—the blood of Jesus speaks. We declare there is restoration in the blood; there is salvation in the blood; there is deliverance in the blood; there is wholeness in the blood. We apply the blood over our minds—we think right because of the blood. We apply the blood over our daily walk—that we might not sin against You Father. We apply the blood over our eyes; and ears so we may hear the voice of the Spirit when He speaks. The blood speaks a better thing—salvation, victory, triumph for God’s people. The blood makes a way of escape for those ensnared this morning. We bind that spirit that would deceive in the name of Jesus—your operation comes to nothing—you’re cut off at the root and there is no life in you. Psalm 91(TPT). Every curse, every hex, every incantation of witches and warlocks wither and die at the root. The blood prevails. No weapon formed against this nation, people, and Church shall prosper.
- We thank You Jesus the blood has removed our sins—salvation is a free gift. Labourers are going forth this morning—ha! ha! Full of the joy of the Lord. Bold—we pray for boldness, fearless in the face of men. They are lovers of the truth and they declare it with confidence because they know their God. Awaken! Awaken! Awaken! We call out to the harvest, “Awaken unto righteousness!” We bind that spirit of confusion and declare the Word comes with clarity. Soft hearts. Soft hearts. Soft hearts—the Spirit of God has ministered to them and their hearts have opened to the truth. No more resistance! No more running away! They’re being drawn by the Spirit of God. And those that will hear will come. And those that desire will come. We thank You Father they’re hearing and they’re coming and You’re filling them Father God, they’re being filled with the Spirit.
- Father we lift up the government of Canada; we lift up the government of the USA; we lift up the government of Israel. Father grant unto them Your wisdom. For it is Your wisdom that will dismantle the wisdom of men. Grant them discernment for the times we are in. Order their steps Father—the fear of the Lord be upon them. We bind that spirit of pride and rebellion in the name of Jesus. We declare they will have humble hearts—we thank You Father. They will be just in their dealings with their people. They will execute their office with the good of the people in their hearts. We thank You Father. There’s some changing around taking place for Your purpose. Whatever they are Father, have Your way—let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We submit to You Father God—use us. Forgive us where we have resisted You; where we have leaned on our own understanding and we have not acknowledged You. Forgive our sins, heal our lands Father. Have Your way in these nations. Let Jesus be glorified. Mercy miracles; mercy salvations; mercy deliverances—Your mercies are new this morning. Great is Your faithfulness Father God towards us. We thank You Father. Thank You Father.
Matthew 28:18-20 (TPT) – 18 Then Jesus came close to them and said, “All the authority of the universe has been given to Me.[a] 19 Now go in My authority and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 20 And teach them to faithfully follow[b] all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.”
[a] – There is a sentence found in the Aramaic that is missing in all but one Greek manuscript, which reads, “As my Father has sent me, so I send you.”
[b] – The Aramaic is “keep” or “guard” (a fortress).
Revelations 3:8 (AMPC) – ….See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut….This door is likely an invitation to come into the fullness of God’s kingdom of joy and power in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17). Or it may refer to an open door of opportunity to give witness to others of God’s power and grace:
Open doors to Salvation – Colossians 4:3 (AMPC) – And at the same time pray for us also, that God may open a door to us for the Word (the Gospel), to proclaim the mystery concerning Christ (the Messiah) on account of which I am in prison;
1 Corinthians 16:9-10 (AMPC) – 9 For a wide door of opportunity for effectual [service] has opened to me [there, a great and promising one], and [there are] many adversaries. 10 When Timothy arrives, see to it that [you put him at ease, so that] he may be fearless among you, for he is [devotedly] doing the Lord’s work, just as I am.
Acts 14:27 (AMPC) – Arriving there, they gathered the church together and declared all that God had accomplished with them and how He had opened to the Gentiles a door of faith [in Jesus as the Messiah, through Whom we obtain salvation in the kingdom of God].
2 Corinthians 2:12 (AMPC) – Now when I arrived at Troas [to preach] the good news (the Gospel) of Christ, a door of opportunity was opened for me in the Lord.
Acts 14:27 (TPT) – When they arrived in Antioch, they gathered the church together and shared with them all of the wonderful works God had done through them and how God had opened the door of faith for the non-Jews to enter in.
Open and shut doors – being lead by the Holy Spirit – Acts 16:6-7 (TPT ) – 6 The Holy Spirit had forbidden Paul and his partners to preach the word in the southwestern provinces of Turkey, so they ministered throughout the region of central and west-central Turkey. 7 When they got as far west as the borders of Mysia, they repeatedly attempted to go north into the province of Bithynia, but again the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to enter.
There’s only one doorway to God the Father and that is through His Son Jesus Christ – 1 Timothy 2:5-6 (TPT) 5 For God is one, and there is one Mediator between God and the sons of men—the true man, Jesus, the Anointed One. 6 He gave Himself as ransom-payment for everyone. Now is the proper time for God to give the world this witness.
We are praying for open doors for the: harvest; our government; our nation; our families; our schools and university; finances, provisions, land, and buildings for Eagles Nest, etc.
- Father we declare righteousness exalts this nation and we close off the doors of wickedness that has allowed Satan to come in to destroy us. We set up the standard of the blood of Jesus and we say, “Satan you cannot come through this door anymore.” We declare doors are being open in the Church for the Word and the Holy Spirit—truth is entering into the hearts of people. We stand on guard for this nation and for the Church. We say, “Satan you’re a defeated foe, all authority has been taken from you and given to the Body of Christ.” Oh, thank You Father the unsaved are find the true door to Jesus Christ—another door they will not enter. They will know there is life in Jesus Christ. Father I thank You for the doors to our family members; to our neighbourhoods; to our schools and universities—doors to bear witness of Jesus Christ. We cover these doors with the blood of Jesus. We declare all doors God has opened no man or demon shall be able to shut. Father those doors that we’re not to go through, close those ungodly doors. Supernatural doors into our government—into the very office of the Prime Minister—labourers entering in under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Their words sharp and piercing, cutting and dividing—the Word bringing light and life into every dark corner. We say, “Many salvations come out of our government.” We declare this morning, ‘There’s an overturning of evil in our government because that door of wickedness is being closed—and the door of righteousness is being opened in Jesus’ name.” Father we thank You for the open doors for Eagles Nest: for finances; our building; and the people coming. We plead the blood of Jesus over these doors—no more resistance, no more barricades! We declare it and we decree it in the name of Jesus. These open doors are to get kingdom business done. Thank You Lord.
