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, we thank You Lord. You’re the Lamb that was slain for the sins of the world. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah—the soon returning King! We exalt You this morning. We thank You for being our God—for being our Saviour; for being our Redeemer. We honour and we worship You this morning. Oh, thank You Father.
- We cover Canada under the blood of Jesus. We declare no weapon formed against this Nation shall prosper. We come against every disease and virus and we apply the blood of Jesus and we say this new virus shall not run rampant in this Nation. We thank You Father that You’re giving our health care workers the wisdom they need—the doctors Lord—all those who are in charge during this time. They will know how to handle things. We thank You Father. We bind that spirit of fear, in the name of Jesus. We plead the blood of Jesus over every nation affected by this virus. We declare the blood is an antidote. Father we stand with those praying and believing for Your intervention.
- We lift up our government this morning: from the Prime Minister’s office to city council; our judges. Father grant them Your wisdom—it will dismantle the wisdom of men, that the perfect will of God will be done in this nation and for our people. The fear of the Lord be upon them—the fear of the Lord! Ha! Ha! Ha!
- Oh, hallelujah! Thank You Father for labourers! Labourers who will go through the open doors into our governmental offices to bring the Truth! Ha! Ha! Oh, yes, let the prophets arise and speak and declare You words! Oh, they shall speak what You would have them say and it shall be as they have spoken. Oh, they won’t be afraid of the faces of men. Father grant them boldness of utterance. Oh, the spiritual leaders in the Church are rising up and standing in their authority declaring the Word of the Lord! Father, strengthen them to stand to minister Your Word as You direct them. Thank You Father. Oh, open doors for Pastor Ric—many, many open doors. Oh, he has a word in season for this city, for this province, for this Nation. Oh, words in season for when he goes overseas.
- Oh, we lift up the harvest this morning. Oh, the Word of the Lord running swiftly throughout this Nation—throughout the earth, penetrating the hearts of men. Ha! Ha! Open wide and receive the Word! Oh, the Word will bring life, and that more abundantly. Oh, we bind every work of darkness that’s blinding people’s eyes, keeping them from turning to You Father. Open eyes! Open eyes! Open eyes to see and ears to hear, to receive, to repent and turn to Christ. Thank You Father. The Labourers are busy, busy, busy—busy about the Father’s business. Full of the Word, full of the Spirit. The love of God, the compassion of God flowing out of them and ministering to the lost. Thank You Jesus.
- Oh, we lift up Israel. Father we cover them under the blood of Jesus. We thank You for Your angels that are encamped about them on every side. Oh, thank You Jesus. We thank You Father for preserving You people. Oh, wisdom for the government in this hour Lord God. We pray for God strategies, God plans. Oh, they outsmart their enemies for they have a word on the matter. Wisdom for the generals, to know how to lead the army—no confusion and no fear, we bind that spirit in the name of Jesus. Oh, show Yourself strong on behalf of Your people Father. Oh, nations shall know that the Lord their God is with them. Shalom! Shalom! It’s Israel’s hour Lord God. Pour out Your Spirit upon them—revive them! Ha! Ha! They’re awakening to the truth of the God of their Fathers: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. An awakening unto righteousness, an awakening unto truth. There’s an awakening among the harvest of Israel. Thank You Lord.
Romans 2:4-6 (TPT) – 4 Do the riches of His extraordinary kindness make you take Him for granted and despise him? Haven’t you experienced how kind and understanding He has been to you? Don’t mistake His tolerance for acceptance. Do you realize that all the wealth of His extravagant kindness is meant to melt your heart and lead you into repentance? 5 But because of your calloused heart and refusal to change direction, you are piling up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment is revealed. 6 For: He will give to each one in return for what he has done.
Acts 17:30 (TPT) – In the past God tolerated our ignorance of these things, but now the time of deception has passed away. He commands us all to repent and turn to God.
1 Peter 4:17 (TPT) – For the time is ripe for judgment to begin in God’s own household. And if it starts with us, what will be the fate of those who refuse to obey the gospel of God?
Psalm 51 (TPT) – 1–2 God, give me mercy from your fountain of forgiveness! I know Your abundant love is enough to wash away my guilt. Because Your compassion is so great, take away this shameful guilt of sin.
Forgive the full extent of my rebellious ways, and erase this deep stain on my conscience. 3–4 For I’m so ashamed. I feel such pain and anguish within me. I can’t get away from the sting of my sin against You, Lord!
Everything I did, I did right in front of You, for you saw it all. Against You, and You above all, have I sinned.
Everything You say to me is infallibly true and Your judgment conquers me. 5 Lord, I have been a sinner from birth, from the moment my mother conceived me. 6 I know that You delight to set Your truth deep in my spirit. So come into the hidden places of my heart and teach me wisdom. 7 Purify my conscience! Make this leper clean again! Wash me in Your love until I am pure in heart. 8 Satisfy me in Your sweetness, and my song of joy will return. The places within me You have crushed will rejoice in Your healing touch. 9 Hide my sins from Your face; erase all my guilt by Your saving grace. 10 Create a new, clean heart within me. Fill me with pure thoughts and holy desires, ready to please You. 11 May You never reject me! May You never take from me Your sacred Spirit! 12 Let my passion for life be restored, tasting joy in every breakthrough You bring to me. Hold me close to You with a willing spirit that obeys whatever You say. 13 Then I can show to other guilty ones how loving and merciful You are. They will find their way back home to You, knowing that You will forgive them. 14 O God, my saving God, deliver me fully from every sin, even the sin that brought blood-guilt. Then my heart will once again be thrilled to sing the passionate songs of joy and deliverance! 15 Lord God, unlock my heart, unlock my lips, and I will overcome with my joyous praise! 16 For the source of Your pleasure is not in my performance or the sacrifices I might offer to You. 17 The fountain of Your pleasure is found in the sacrifice of my shattered heart before You. You will not despise my tenderness as I humbly bow down at Your feet. 18 Because You favour Zion, do what is good for her. Be the protecting wall around Jerusalem. 19 And when we are fully restored, You will rejoice and take delight in every offering of our lives as we bring our sacrifices of righteousness before You in love!
We are praying Psalm 51 for the Church—that there will be true repentance amongst God’s people—a laying aside of every weight and sin that has hindered our walk with God and defiled us. Living our lives as disciples of Jesus Christ—in godly living: in word, deed, and action, bearing fruit that is pleasing unto God.
- Father we lift up the Church this morning. Oh, the hour is crucial—these are the last days! We pray for such an awakening in the Body of Christ. An awakening unto righteousness—what is right, what is good, what is pleasing in Your sight Father. True repentance, a turning away from sin. A turning away from unrighteousness, ungodly ways. Times of consecration in the Church—humbling our hearts before our God. Forgive us Father where we have sinned; forgive us where we have rebelled against Your Word. We bring out those hidden sins and we lay them at the Cross and we receive the cleansing work of the blood of Jesus. Oh, we humble ourselves Lord God—forgive us, forgive us. You know our hearts Lord God. Oh, search our heats and see if there be anything within us that would defile us, that would cause our fellowship with You to be broken—help us Holy Spirit. We thank You for Your mercy towards us, Your unfailing love. Ha! Ha! Contrite hearts! Contrite hearts! Oh, we thank You Father. We thank You. Bring us back into right standing with You. We determine in our hearts Lord God to walk according to Your Word; to live according to Your Word; to act according to Your Word. We thank You for Your Holy Spirit Who is our Helper, Who strengthens us. He shows us what we need to do, and we are quick to obey. Thank You Father for Your mercy this morning—it’s new, it’s new! Oh, thank You Jesus. We are washed in the blood of the Lamb.
