The following was taught and prayed through during our 9:30 a.m. family prayer time with Sue DeGroot

Excerpt from Tony Cooke’s, Grace, the DNA of God (chapter 14 Strengthening Grace)

Strengthening grace is God’s power and ability to energize and inspire us to live victoriously, to reign over the challenges and circumstances of life.
Strengthening grace keeps us from being defeated.
Strengthening grace is the impartation of God’s might. Strengthening grace is Love Empowering.

God’s grace is a source of strength to believers
He has an ever-present and abundant supply of His might for us. No doubt many believers, when faced with the drain and the weariness life brings, have personalized Philippians 4:13 and declared with the apostle Paul, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”It is important to note that this verse does not say, “I can do all things through him who strengthened me,” past tense, as though God had just given us one, limited dose of strength that has to last us for a lifetime. The verb strengthens denotes continuous action. That’s a pretty amazing concept! Christ is infusing strength in Paul all the time, and I don’t believe He is a respecter of persons. If He constantly infused Paul with strength, then He is constantly infusing strength in you and me.

2 Corinthians 12:9, notice the correlation between grace, strength, and power. “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
The Lord speaks in the first part, and Paul speaks in the last part. They use these three terms interchangeably: My grace (the Lord’s grace) My strength (the Lord’s strength) The power of Christ.

When we are proud, self-reliant, and self-sufficient, we do not yield to the strengthening grace of God. We walk in our natural ability instead the power of God’s strengthening grace.

The ideal lifestyle for a Christian is to abide in Jesus 24-7, to continually receive His infusion of strengthening grace and walk in an ongoing awareness of His presence and His work. Then, when a crisis does arise, we have no hindrance in receiving His strength for the situation. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

We prayed that the families of Eagles Nest would receive His grace for the times that we are in regarding the changes that COVID 19 has brought into our lives/workplaces/schooling/homes etc.

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.

Luke 13:1-5 (AMP) – 1 Just at that time some people came who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate [the governor] had mixed with their sacrifices. 2 Jesus replied to them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans because they have suffered in this way? 3 I tell you, no; but unless you repent [change your old way of thinking, turn from your sinful ways and live changed lives], you will all likewise perish. 4 Or do you assume that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed were worse sinners than all the others who live in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no; but unless you repent [change your old way of thinking, turn from your sinful ways and live changed lives], you will all likewise perish.”

Definition of KEEP – to hold; to retain in one’s power or possession; not to lose or part with; to have in custody for security or preservation; to preserve from falling or from danger; to protect; to guard or sustain etc.

God can’t keep what we have not committed –

God being able to keep us is contingent upon us repenting—turning to Him. This world is fallen and is full of evil and wickedness and no one is exempt from being touched by it. UNLESS, there is repentance and a receiving of forgiving of sins. Jesus already paid the price for ALL sin, but nothing happens until we acknowledge that we are sinners and receive the free gift of salvation that comes through repentance.

Luke 9:56b (AMP) – “…for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.”]…

Romans 3:23-24 (AMP) – 23 since all have sinned and continually fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are being justified [declared free of the guilt of sin, made acceptable to God, and granted eternal life] as a gift by His [precious, undeserved] grace, through the redemption [the payment for our sin] which is [provided] in Christ Jesus,

Romans 10:9 (AMP) – because if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

We are praying for the harvest. Hebrews 10:37 (TPT) – For soon and very soon, “The One who is appearing will come without delay!

Prayed…

  • Oh, we thank You Father. Thank You Father. Oh, how You love all humanity. You sent Jesus Christ to die for the sins of the world. Ha! Ha! Mercy! Mercy! Mercy! Mercy this morning! Oh Lord, we cry out Father God for Your mercy! Oh, Father send forth Your Spirit. Oh, we cry out for the rains of Your Spirit to move across the earth. Oh Lord God, that desire for You would rise in the hearts of men and women. A desire for truth that will set them free.
  • Oh, we lift up our Prime Minister and his family. We lift up the federal, provincial, and municipal government this morning. We lift up mayors’ offices, city counsellors, our judges. Father give them Your wisdom this hour—wisdom to govern right Father God. Oh, the fear of the Lord be upon them, the fear of the Lord upon them this morning. Oh, Father God You said that the hearts of the king is like a channels of water in the hand of the Lord; He turns it wherever He wishes. We call forth our harvest out of the government. Father those in these government positions that know You—stir in their hearts a desire to share the Word—the gospel of Jesus Christ. Not being afraid of their peers, but with a reverential fear of God they step through the doors You open for them. Father we pray for the labourers this morning, for these are the days of the open doors. Father You’re filling their mouths with the right words to speak—anointed to lift burdens and destroy yokes. Open doors with family members. Open doors with our co-workers. Open doors, with a word in season for this time. The labourers know what to say and when to say it. Oh, they’re sensitive to the Spirit—no missed appointments. No missed opportunities. Father, an alert labour force—they don’t miss opportunities. Oh, a revival in our neighbourhoods; cities; provinces; and Nation. A revival, a turning back to the truth of God’s Word. These are days of God’s glory being seen as the waters cover the sea. The Word running swiftly, penetrating the dark areas of men’s hearts. Ears to hear and eyes to see—they receive this morning. Ephesians 1:17 (TPT) – We pray that the Father of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to them the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know Him through their deepening intimacy with Him. (personalized) That they will come to the knowledge of You as their Saviour, their Redeemer—that You came to bring them life and that life more abundant. We pull down the spirit of pride, in the name of Jesus. We pull down every high thing that would exalt itself above the Word of God. We bind every work of darkness, in the name of Jesus—You will not influence the harvest. Oh, a turning and a returning of the prodigals, they’re coming to their senses Lord God. We bind that spirit of confusion. We uproot that spirit of deception and lies. Ha! Ha! Light comes and it is dispelling darkness, in the name of Jesus. We bind that spirit of fear—you will not hold the harvest back or stop the labourers from speaking. Many in the valley of decision are turning. Thank You Father.
  • Oh, we pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Wisdom for the government and protection for the people. The labourers are going strong. They’re walking through the open doors; they’re sharing the gospel. The harvest is hearing and receiving.
  • We plead the blood of Jesus over every nation this morning. We come against this virus and we say to the root, “Dry up, in Jesus name!” Father we thank You for preserving lives this morning. We ask You for mercy on the nations of the earth. Show Yourself strong on our behalf for the glory of the name of Jesus Christ.

The following was taught and prayed through during our 9:30 a.m. family prayer time with Sue DeGroot

1 Peter 5:6-9
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.  8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

Definition of Seeking – to plot against one’s life

Fear opens the door to the devourer.

When we feed our faith on God’s Word, we will starve any fear that tries to come on us.

Daniel 6
It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom one hundred and twenty satraps, to be over the whole kingdom; 2 and over these, three governors, of whom Daniel was one, that the satraps might give account to them, so that the king would suffer no loss. 3 Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm. 4 So the governors and satraps sought to find some charge against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find no charge or fault, because he was faithful; nor was there any error or fault found in him. 5 Then these men said, “We shall not find any charge against this Daniel unless we find it against him concerning the law of his God.”
6 So these governors and satraps thronged before the king, and said thus to him: “King Darius, live forever! 7 All the governors of the kingdom, the administrators and satraps, the counselors and advisors, have consulted together to establish a royal statute and to make a firm decree, that whoever petitions any god or man for thirty days, except you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions. 8 Now, O king, establish the decree and sign the writing, so that it cannot be changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which does not alter.” 9 Therefore King Darius signed the written decree.
10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.
11 Then these men assembled and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God. 12 And they went before the king, and spoke concerning the king’s decree: “Have you not signed a decree that every man who petitions any god or man within thirty days, except you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions?”
The king answered and said, “The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which does not alter.”
13 So they answered and said before the king, “That Daniel, who is [c]one of the captives from Judah, does not show due regard for you, O king, or for the decree that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day.”
14 And the king, when he heard these words, was greatly displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him; and he abored till the going down of the sun to deliver him. 15 Then these men approached the king, and said to the king, “Know, O king, that it is the law of the Medes and Persians that no decree or statute which the king establishes may be changed.”
16 So the king gave the command, and they brought Daniel and cast him into the den of lions. But the king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Your God, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you.” 17 Then a stone was brought and laid on the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the signets of his lords, that the purpose concerning Daniel might not be changed.
18 Now the king went to his palace and spent the night fasting; and no musicians were brought before him. Also his sleep went from him. 19 Then the king arose very early in the morning and went in haste to the den of lions. 20 And when he came to the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?”
21 Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! 22 My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.”
23 Now the king was exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no injury whatever was found on him, because he believed in his God.
24 And the king gave the command, and they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions—them, their children, and their wives; and the lions overpowered them, and broke all their bones in pieces before they ever came to the bottom of the den.
25 Then King Darius wrote:
To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth:
Peace be multiplied to you.
26 I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel.
For He is the living God,
And steadfast forever;
His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed,
And His dominion shall endure to the end.
27 He delivers and rescues,
And He works signs and wonders
In heaven and on earth,
Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
28 So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.

Daniel remained faithful to His God and his trust was in God. God delivered Daniel from the lions that were meant to devour him.

Ecc 8:4a; 5a
Where the word of a king is, there is power;
He who keeps his command will experience nothing harmful;

That Eagles Nest would remain steadfast in their faith and we also bound the spirit of fear in our families re COVID19

1 Tim 2:1-4

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Excerpts from “Worship -Unleashing the Supernatural Power of God in Your Life” by Norvel Hayes

Worship Me More

Praise ye the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation. Psalm 111:1

Several years ago I was driving down the road just minding my own business when the Spirit of God came upon me. He comes upon me in some of the most unusual places! Then He said to me, “Son, the church is sadly lacking.”
I said, “What do you mean, ‘sadly lacking’?”
“Well,” He said, “My children basically love me, but they live in poverty and sickness and defeat. They don’t live in heaven’s blessings because they don’t worship me enough.”
“You said that right, Lord,” I said, “in fact I know whole congregations who don’t spend any time worshipping You at all. The pastors don’t ever say, ‘Let’s worship God for a while just because He’s God.’ They just teach the people to go to church, sing a few songs and listen to a song or two sung by the choir, but they don’t really worship You.”
Then He said to me, “And neither do you.” All I could say was, “Is that right?”
He continued, “You’re going around the
country teaching My Word. You’re teaching faith and confession. You’re praying for the sick, but you need to worship Me more, and you need to teach My people to worship Me more. I’m their God, and they’re My children. If you’ll teach my children to worship Me more, I’ll do great and mighty things for them.”

…Worship is important to God!
God finds so much favor in His children when He looks down and sees them worshipping and praising Him. He’s working out their problems for them. He gives them everything they need and want that’s in the Bible. He brings to pass the desires of their heart.
(Ps. 37:4.)
It doesn’t matter what kind of problems you have. God knows what to do. I don’t know what to do, but Jesus does. He knows all about your case. He made you. He loves you and wants to bless you. All He wants you to do is worship Him for Who He is and praise Him for what He has done. Worship and praise are like twins; they just kind of mingle together.

Since That Day
Now are you ready for this? Since the day I started doing this, I’ve had no financial problems. I even bought some property for a Bible school. In a year the ministry had the money to pay for it. We never even had to take up an offering!
“You mean to tell me you never had to take up an offering to pay for the building?”
Honey, I mean to tell you that we’ve got four sanctuaries now—we’re putting the finishing touches on the fourth one now —and I never took up an offering to pay for one of them.
You say, “Well, where did the money come from?”
I don’t know. It just showed up. God would send to a seminar where I was speaking people who would say, “Brother Norvel, I was praying in the state where I’m from, and God told me to come here and give you a check for ten thousand dollars.”
Now I haven’t lived my life a hundred percent perfect. There’s only been one Jesus, and I’m not Him. There’s only been One Who didn’t make any mistakes, and I’m not Him. But if you’ll just try to do what He tells you to do, the blessings of God will fall on you, totally fall on you.”

…The Works of the Lord Are Great!
The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. Psalm 111:2

“What exactly do the works of the Lord include, Brother Norvel?” you may ask.
The works of the Lord are salvation for you and your whole family if your faith waivereth not. The works of the Lord God Almighty are health to your body. The works of the Lord are miracles when you need them. The works of the Lord are the nine gifts of the Spirit for anyone that will believe in Him. The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that will have pleasure therein…

The Works of the Lord Are Financial Provision

As I shared before, God said to me: “I want My people to spend time worshipping Me. I want to see My Church Worship.

But more than that I want individuals to worship Me, especially when those individuals get alone before Me.”
When God told me that, I began to worship Him more and more. I began to spend time worshipping and praising Him. When I put Him first in worship and praise, finances began to come to me and to my ministry.
The same thing will work within your church. But your pastor and the congregation have to want to worship God. They have to spend more time worshipping God and praising Him, looking toward heaven rather than always seeing the needs and the lack of money.
Put everything in the proper perspective. Then God will provide, and you will see hundreds of thousands of dollars added to your church account. I’m telling you that you will.
You may say, “Well, where does it come from, Brother Norvel?”
Who in the world knows where it comes from? I don’t always know myself. God will just see that it comes.
I received an interesting letter at my office one day. This is how it read:
“I’m down here in Florida and I was praying. Brother Norvel, the Lord told me to send your ministry a check for $26,000.
“I told my wife about it, but she didn’t agree with me.
I said,’Honey, I know what the Lord told me. I was praying and God told me to send Norvel Hayes’s ministry a check for $26,000. So you go pray yourself and ask God about it.'”
She went to her room and started praying. After she had prayed for a while, she came out and said, ‘Send Brother Norvel the check.'” And he did! My friend, that happens to me all the time. All the time!
My ministry has money in the bank, but we need it with all that’s required at our office and in our Bible school. There is always something that needs to be done. I believe we ought to have a certain amount of money just as a nest egg. Then when something comes up, I don’t have to say, “Where are we going to get the money?” I can tell you right now, God doesn’t want me to worry about anything.”…

Matt 6:33
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

  • there’s our part and there’s Gods part
  • we seek FIRST His Kingdom and His Righteousness …He ADDS all the other things unto us

 

Prayed…

  •  We Worshipped the Lord this Morning… for Who He is, what He’s done and what He is about to do here at Eagles Nest.
  • There’s sooo much more!
  • Don’t complain! Reign!
  • Psalm 68:3-4
    But let the righteous be glad;
    Let them rejoice before God;
    Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly.
    4 Sing to God, sing praises to His name;
    Extol Him who rides on the clouds,
    By His name YAH,
    And rejoice before Him.
  • Be in High Spirits!
  • Deut 28:47

    You promised to manifest Yourself to us. We stay on course expecting major release of Your great goodness. Lord distinguish according to Your favour. Praise God! Praise God! Praise God!

Crooked places being made straight. Rough places being made smooth. They’re opening wide, opening wide to receive the Word. The gospel is running swiftly penetrating hearts. The light has come and its dispelling darkness. Oh, Lord, men are asking the right question— “What must we do to be saved?” And the labourers come with the response, “Repent and turn to Christ Jesus.” The labourers have the answers to their questions. These are the day of the turning. Thank You Jesus. The marked ones are coming home. They’re receiving Christ as their Saviour. They’re turning from darkness to light. We thank You Father You’re doing a deep transforming work. And as they come into the Church, the pastors are teaching the gospel—disciplining—truth is being taught. The truth that brings stability in their hearts and in their minds. Truth that will cause them to be rooted and abide.
  • We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We say, “Peace be unto Jerusalem.” We pray for wisdom and direction for the government. Oh, strength to the government to stand in these days.

Luke 21:11 AMPC
There will be mighty and violent earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences (plagues: malignant and contagious or infectious epidemic diseases which are deadly and devastating); and there will be sights of terror and great signs from heaven.

Colossians 4:3‭-‬6 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; That I may proclaim it fully and make it clear [speak boldly and unfold that mystery], as is my duty. Behave yourselves wisely [living prudently and with discretion] in your relations with those of the outside world (the non-Christians), making the very most of the time and seizing (buying up) the opportunity. Let your speech at all times be gracious (pleasant and winsome), seasoned [as it were] with salt, [so that you may never be at a loss] to know how you ought to answer anyone [who puts a question to you].

2 Timothy 1:7
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

Psalm 91:5-7, 10-11
“Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you. …
9 If you make the LORD your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.”

As Believers we are to be the example in our faith of God’s Word regarding protection and health. Therefore, we are praying that we will be a bold light to our family members who are in fear regarding the Coronavirus.

The following was taught and prayed through during our 6 a.m. prayer time with Terry Nyenhuis

1 Tim 2:1-4

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Excerpt from Sparkling Gems 2 – March 1

…”Building a foundation is a hard, elaborate, lengthy, expensive process, but it is extremely important.

In First Corinthians 3:11, the apostle Paul wrote about the spiritual foundation he had laid in the church of Corinth.

He said, “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

The word “foundation” that Paul used in this verse is the Greek word themelios, a compound of the words lithos and tithemi. The word lithos is Greek for stone, and tithemi means to lay something down. When these words are compounded, they form the word themelios, which describes a foundation set in stone that is strong, stable, and enduring.

In addition to describing a physical foundation, the word themelios was also used metaphorically to denote the laying of a moral, theological, or educational foundation in a person’s life. These figurative foundations, just like an actual physical foundation of a building, are all built with enormous effort, intense concentration, and great expense.

When the apostle Paul first entered Corinth, the city was utterly consumed with idolatry and heathenism. In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that Corinth was one of the most wicked, perverted cities on the face of the earth at that time. Therefore, for Paul to establish a church in that evil environment, he had to push like a spiritual bulldozer in the Spirit to shove those demonic powers out of the way. Once the spiritual rubbish had been cleared from his path, he then preached the Word in order to establish a firm foundation under the feet of these newly saved Corinthians. Paul’ s enormous effort and intense focus produced a foundation under them that would withstand any attack of the enemy — including horrific persecution — and would last for generations!

Whenever Paul left a congregation to establish a church in a new region, a new pastor would follow in his stead to build on top of his work. However, every spiritual foundation that the apostle set beneath a church was rock-solid and needed no improvements. That is why he confidently stated to the Corinthians, “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 3:11).

Because of Paul’s hard work, the church in Corinth was set on a firm spiritual foundation that enabled it to become one of the most influential congregations of the Early Church. Although other spiritual leaders followed Paul and contributed their part, a large part of the fruit produced in the Corinthian church can be directly attributed to the talents, energy, and gifts Paul used to establish the foundation for that congregation…

Never forget that the longevity of a building greatly depends on the foundation. Although laying a spiritual foundation is a hard, elaborate, lengthy process that can come at great cost, it is nevertheless extremely important. If a godly foundation is laid correctly, a person’s life will be well supported, and he will be able to pass the test of time. On the other hand, if a foundation under a person’s life is built too hastily or on shifting soil, that person will not have a firm footing as he proceeds forward in his spiritual walk…

Freely ye have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:8). This means that you should actively seek to build up the spiritual foundation of other people, just as others took the time to help strengthen your foundation. Do everything you can to help build strong foundations in the lives of those around you, even as you ensure that your own foundation is built strong and sure to hold the full weight of all that God has destined you to be!

I confess that I have a strong foundation in God, firmly based on the truth of His Word. And I allow Him to use me to positively influence other people’s lives. I have gifts, talents, abilities, and experience that will help put others on a firm foundation for life. Rather than keep those gifts, talents, abilities and life experiences to myself, I allow God to use these to help other people get started on a firm foundation. Because I allow the Holy Spirit to use me, I am a great blessing to people who are around me. God works through me, and other people’s lives are benefited because I am willing to invest myself in them and in their future.
I declare this by faith in Jesus’ name!”

Luke 6:47-49
Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. 49 But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”

  • a “hearer” and “doer” digs deep and lays a foundation on rock
  • a “hearer” only lays no foundation

Eph 3:20-22 AMPC
Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]— 21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).

Psalm 91
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”

Prayed…

  • We prayed for the World Leaders and all those in prominent positions – that they would know how to navigate in these times ahead
  • Filling up the cracks and gaps that come because of leaks
  • it can take a whole building down
  • it can “compromise the integrity of a building”
  • things can “chip away” at your foundation over the years
  • shoring things up to be able to endure victoriously through these last days
  • Heb 4:13
    And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.

And fountains in the midst of the valleys;
I will make the wilderness a pool of water,
And the dry land springs of water.

Like willows by the watercourses.’

We are the glorious church and we will stand and give witness.

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.

Prayed…

  • Oh, Father we thank You this morning. Ha! Ha! Oh, thank You Lord. Ha! Ha! The King is on the throne! The King is on the throne and He has held out His sceptre to us this morning! Ha! Ha! Highly favoured! Oh, the Lord would say, “We are highly favoured!” Oh, we enter with boldness, we enter with confidence. Ha! Ha! Say, say! Oh, we can ask what we will and He will answer. Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Oh, we thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Angels on assignment—angels on assignment. Oh, they work on behalf of God’s people—angels on assignment! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Jesus! Oh, hallelujah!
  • Oh, we cover Canada under the blood of Jesus. Oh, we say, “No weapon, no weapon, no weapon—no demonic force, no evil that men would perpetrate, no viral, nothing biological, shall overtake our Nation because the blood covers us! The evil plans of men are coming to nothing. We pull them down, in the name of Jesus. Satan you’re not taking away the rights of the Believers! We’re standing in our authority and in the power of the Spirit of God! Ha! Ha! We pull down every work of darkness—exposure to every covert operation of Satan! Ha! Ha! Exposure! Exposure of every lie and all deception! The Light is dispelling the darkness. We hold up our government Lord God: the Prime Minister and his office, right down to city councils. We hold up the judges, intelligence agencies, our armed forces, police forces, border guards. Oh, we thank You Father we ask for heaven’s wisdom for every situation to be imparted to these in authority. We pray for ears to hear—they have ears to hear! Because the plans of God will preserve this Nation. We cover all these under the blood. Every evil influence broken off those in authority, in the name of Jesus. Oh, we thank You Father. Oh, we ask You Father for the rains—send the rains of Your Spirit. Saturate this nation—let no corner be left untouched.
  • Oh, we say, “The harvest is opening wide to receive the gospel of Jesus Christ.” Open wide your hearts! Oh, yes, yes, a revival in the Church. The Church is catching on fire—a revival! Oh, the purifying fires of the Spirit of God—all defilement being removed. Oh, the Church, the labourers, they are taking the gospel to the nations. Oh, yes, yes, they’re running in their lanes with boldness. They aren’t afraid of men. No more snares of the fear of men. They’re not caught in that snare—they’re bold, confident in their God. Taking ground! Father the Church is taking ground—we’re taking it back this morning. Take your hands off Satan! It belongs to God—it belongs to the Church! We’re taking our harvest—no one left behind! They belong to the kingdom. Turn around! Turn around! Sudden turnarounds! Ha! Ha! It’s a life changing turn, nothing will be the same! Thank You Father. Nothing shall remain the same when they turn! They’re returning, they’re coming! Father there’s true repentance taking place. No more going back to the pig style. No more walking in the ways of the world. Thank You Father.
  • We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Father we pray for the right man that You destined to lead the government will be positioned right now. No plans of men shall thwart the plans of God. We cover them under the blood of Jesus and we ask You to give them Your wisdom for this hour. We cover their borders under the blood. No penetration of the enemy! No penetration of missiles! Supernatural deliverances! The blood is preserving their lives. Strength for the Messianic Jews Father. Continue to order their steps and provide for them according to Your riches in glory. The generals are hearing what’s going on in the enemy’s camp—like the prophet Elisha heard what was going on in the bed chambers of the king. It’s a supernatural thing!

Pastors/spiritual leaders carry a heavy burden. Not only are they under constant attack from the enemy, who would love nothing more than to take them down, but they also carry the burden of their own family and life, plus those of every person in their Church.

Pray for protection from the enemy – Pray that the pastors/spiritual leader would be alert and watchful for any area of his/her life that is open to attack – pray for supernatural protection (angelic). 1 Peter 5:8-9 (TPT) – Be well balanced and always alert, because your enemy, the devil, roams around incessantly, like a roaring lion looking for its prey to devour. 9 Take a decisive stand against him and resist his every attack with strong, vigorous faith. 2 Thessalonians 3:3 (AMPC) – Yet the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen [you] and set you on a firm foundation and guard you from the evil [one].

Pray for spiritual encouragement – ministry is brutal and pastors are in the middle of stressful situations constantly because they are the ones who help others through life’s issues (Romans 1:11-12 (TPT) – I yearn to come and be face-to-face with you and get to know you. For I long to impart to you the gift of the Spirit that will empower you to stand strong in your faith. 12 Now, this means that when we come together and are side by side, something wonderful will be released. We can expect to be co-encouraged and co-comforted by each others faith. 2 Corinthians 12:9 (TPT) – But He answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and My power finds its full expression through your weakness. So I will celebrate my weakness, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. Galatians 6:9 (AMPC) – And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.

Pray for their health – long days and nights of ministry, high-stress situations and constant discouragement can wear down the physical body. They need spiritual and physical strength. Isaiah 40:31 (AMPC) – But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

Pray for strong marriage and family – Satan wants to damage and disrupt all families, but the ones of those involved in full-time ministry are especially crucial to the unity of the Church as a whole. 1 Timothy 3:2-6 (ESV) – 2 Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, 5 for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church? 6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. Ephesians 6:4 (TPT) – Father’s, don’t exasperate your children, but raise them up with loving discipline and counsel that bring the revelation of our Lord

Pray for wisdom to lead the Church – Pastors/spiritual leaders are not just responsible for leading his/her congregation because it’s his/her job, he/she is actually responsible for answering to God for the decisions made and the words spoken to their congregation that is under their leadership. 2 Timothy 4:2 (TPT) – proclaim the Word of God and stand upon it no matter what! Rise to the occasion and preach when it is convenient and when it is not. Preach the full expression of the Holy Spirit—with wisdom and patience as you instruct and teach the people.; Acts 20:28 (TPT) – So guard your hearts. Be true shepherds over all the flock and feed them well. Remember, it was the Holy Spirit who appointed you to guard and oversee the Churches that belong to Jesus, the Anointed One, which He purchased and established by His own blood; Ephesians 1:17 (TPT) – I pray that the Father of glory the God of our Lord Jesus Chris would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know Him through your deepening intimacy with Him.

We are praying for Pastors/Spiritual Leaders.

Prayed…

  • Oh, we thank You Father. We thank You. Father we lift up the spiritual leaders in the Body of Christ. We cover them under the blood of Jesus. We declare this morning that they have the mind of Christ. We come against confusion, deception, worldly thinking, depression, discouragement, weak knees—we bind you, in the name of Jesus and we say, “You will no longer influence these men and women any longer.” Father we pray for a fresh outpouring of the Spirit this morning—an infusion Lord God, of Your Spirit. We bind every operation of darkness that would come against them, in the name of Jesus. We say no weapon formed against them shall prosper. Ha! Ha! We declare to them, stand on the firm foundation of the Word and you won’t be shaken! God’s grace is sufficient! God’s strength will be seen in you when you seem to be at your weakest. Stand in your faith! Stand in your faith and do not be moved by what you see! Oh, the mighty power of God dwells in you, enabling you to stand. We declare that these spiritual leaders, they’re putting on the full amour of God! We come against sickness and disease. We say, “By the strips of Jesus you have been made whole.” Oh, we bind and uproot that spirit of oppression and depression. Oh, we cover their families under the blood of Jesus. Father grant them Your wisdom to not only lead their families, but the Church in the ways of the Lord. They’re discerning. They rightly divide the Word because they’re Spirit-lead. Oh, they run the race to the end—they’re finishers, they’re finishers! Father we pray this morning for believer to rise up and hold their spiritual leaders up in prayer; to minister to them spiritually and naturally. Your Word says they are worthy of their wages. No lack in their families; no lack in their ministries. These are the days of the overflow! We say to them this morning, fear not, be of good courage for the Lord God has made the way—He’s gone before you. Ha! Ha! Oh, fresh infilling. Father leading back to their prayer closets so You can fill them up. No more operating in the flesh but drawing on the Spirit of God to do the work of the ministry. We thank You Father. We thank You.
