Charles Spurgeon – “If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.”

E. M. Bounds – The “prayers of all saints” are a perpetual force against all the powers of darkness. These prayers are a mighty energy in overcoming the world, the flesh, and the Devil, and in shaping the destiny of God’s movements to overcome evil and get the victory over the Devil and all his works. The character and energy of God’s movement lie in prayer. Victory is to come at the end of prayer.

Isaiah 65:24 (VOICE) – I’ll anticipate their prayers and respond before they know it; even as they speak, I will hear. We are not alone in our prayers; Jesus Christ our High Priest and He is interceding right along with us. Fervent prayer is needed in these last days—many are in spiritual bondage (the state of being a slave, a state of being bound usually by compulsion – (believing lies; choosing sin; giving in to fear). Snared (1 something by which one is entangled, involved in difficulties, or impeded. 2 something deceptively attractive. 3 to capture by or as if by use of a snare. 3 to win or attain by artful or skillful manoeuvres. 4 to entangle or hold as if in a snare. 4 TRAP (something by which one is caught or stopped unawares, also: a position or situation from which it is difficult or impossible to escape, to place in a restrictive position) by Satan.

Revelation 8:3 (TPT) – Then the eighth angel with a golden incense burner came and took his place at the incense altar. He was given a great quantity of incense to offer up, consisting of the prayers of God’s holy people, upon the golden altar that is before the throne. (angels never acted as priests—this was speaking of Jesus Christ our High Priest – Hebrews 4:14-16)

Hebrews 7:25 (EXB) – So He is able always to save [or to save completely/forever] those who come to God through Him because He always lives, asking God to help [interceding for] them.

Works of Satan against mankind:

a) Controls people’s hearts and mindsLuke 22:3 (TPT) – At that time Satan himself entered into Judas the locksmith, who was one of the twelve apostles.
b) Blinds people’s eyes 2 Corinthians 4:4 (TPT) – for their minds have been blinded by the god of this age, leaving them in unbelief. Their blindness keeps them from seeing the dayspring light of the wonderful news of the glory of Jesus Christ, who is the divine image of God.
c) Prevents people from hearingProverbs 28:9 (TPT) – If you close your heart and refuse to listen to God’s instruction, even your prayer will be despised; Hebrews 3:15 – For again, the Scriptures say, If only today you would listen to his voice. Don’t make him angry by hardening your hearts, as you did in the wilderness rebellion.
d) Steals the Word from hearts Luke 8:12 (TPT) – The hard pathway represents the hard hearts of men who hear the word of God, but the slanderer quickly snatches away what was sown in their hearts to keep them from believing and experiencing salvation.
e) Lies and misrepresents the truthGenesis 3:4 (VOICE) – Die? No, you’ll not die. God is playing games with you.
f) False religion/doctrineProverbs 16:25 (VOICE) – Before every person lies a road that seems to be right, but at the end of that road death and destruction wait.

We are praying for those snared/bound in sin—Jesus came to set all men free: Acts 13:38-39 (TPT) – 38 “So listen, friends! Through this Jesus, the forgiveness of sins is offered to you. 39 Everyone who believes in Him is set free from sin and guilt—something the law of Moses had no power to do.

Prayed…

  • Father this morning we come before a mighty God. Your Word said – Then Jesus made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power to accuse us. And by the power of the cross, Jesus led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph. He was not their prisoners, they were His. Colossians 2:15 (TPT). Father we thank You, Satan is defeated foe. We uproot his operation in the lives of people this morning—whether they are saved or unsaved. We pull down every high thing that would exalt itself against Your Word this morning. We break and pull out that deaf and dumb spirit. We say, ears are opening this morning and eyes are seeing, in Jesus’ name. Truth is being revealed. The Light has come, and darkness is being dispelled, in the name of Jesus. The Word that is being sown is taking root in the hearts of men. No longer shall they be swayed too and fro. Holy Spirit help them this morning, help us this morning. We bind the spirit of deception that says there is no God. We bind that spirit that would say there is many ways to God. We bind that spirit that would say, I was born this way. We pull down the spirit of pride and arrogance that resists the truth when it comes. Jesus died that all men might be free. He died that men will come back to the Father. He died that we might be saved, healed, and delivered from: depression, every bondage, every snare of the enemy. Ways of escape are being made this morning. Angelic visitation. The blood! The blood! The blood! The blood! The blood of Jesus is making the way. Oh, we thank You Father. We thank You we have a High Priest who is standing with us this morning. Things are happening! Things are happening! Liberation! Liberation! Liberation! Ha! Ha! Ha! They come to the Light, they come to the Light—freedom, in Jesus’ name. Today is the day of deliverance from alcoholism, from the bondage of drugs, from homosexuality, from the spirit of oppression and depression—loosed, in the name of Jesus! Father, prostitutes coming to Jesus—labourers in those highways and byways. Ha! Ha! Transformation! Transformation! Father You are making a way of escape for them. We thank You Father. We thank you Lord. We thank You Lord.

Is 57:14-19
And one shall say, “Heap it up! Heap it up! Prepare the way, Take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.” For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones. For I will not contend forever, Nor will I always be angry; For the spirit would fail before Me, And the souls which I have made. For the iniquity of his covetousness I was angry and struck him; I hid and was angry, And he went on backsliding in the way of his heart. I have seen his ways, and will heal him; I will also lead him, And restore comforts to him And to his mourners. “I create the fruit of the lips: Peace, peace to him who is far off and to him who is near,” Says the Lord, “And I will heal him.”

A few years ago, one of the students had a dream about seeing 5 boats from a mountain top. These boats represented the enemy and were named Lying, Cheating, Murder, Stealing, and Disobedience. We prayed towards these stumbling blocks, which are operating in the Body of Christ, to be removed.

Prayed:

  • Father, we come to You in Jesus’ name. We lift up the body of Christ this day. Father we bind that seducing spirit operating throughout Your body. The spirit of lying, cheating, murder, stealing and disobedience – we bind you in Jesus’ name.
  • We are calling those backsliding in heart to be humble and repentant this day. Thank You that they are going to give heed to sound doctrine. Thank You that they are no longer deceived. Thank You that they are not jealous, bitter and unforgiving. Father forgive those who agree in the natural of the killing of babies, or those who are agreeing to drugs Lord which leads to the path of destruction and natural death. Thank You for restoration of all that was stolen.
  • Thank You they no longer are disobedient and rebellious but obedient to Your Word. We pray that the eyes of their understanding are enlightened this day. They are coming out of the snare of the fowler. They are coming out of darkness into the light.
  • Thank You that they are casting down every imagination that exalts itself above You. Yes Lord we are removing those stumbling blocks. We say be removed In Jesus’ name. We say this is the way, walk in it.
  • Thank You that they are renewing their minds with the washing of the Word. Thank You that they have a renewed love for You. They are returning to their first Love. Thank You that the Spirit of truth is revealing the truth to them.

Faith to faith
Be Skillful
By Kenneth Copeland

The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
Psalm 34:10

Did you know that, according to the Word of God, there is no lack in the Body of Christ? Everything we could ever need, every problem we could ever face has been covered by the blood of Jesus. His exceeding great and precious promises have supplied it all.

Why then do many of us keep on suffering lack? Because we haven’t, as Hebrews 5:13 says, become SKILLFUL in the Word of righteousness.

It takes skill to apply the Word of God. Most of us don’t realize that. We just sling the Word around and try to use it any old way. We pray some ignorant prayer and then say, “Oh well, God knows what I mean” and expect it to be answered.

It’s funny though. We’d never stand for that kind of carelessness in the natural realm. If our doctor came in and just threw a bottle of pills at us and said, “Here, take that,” without even trying to find out what’s wrong with us, we’d leave his office and never come back. Yet, we’re shocked when that same careless attitude in the spiritual realm keeps our prayers from being effective.

We live in an “instant” society where everything is quick and easy. And too many of us are letting that instant mentality leak over into our walk with the Lord Jesus Christ. When someone needs healing, we bust through the hospital door, dab a little oil between their eyes and say, “Glory to God!” and out the door we go. Sometimes it doesn’t take any longer than “In the Name of Jesus be healed!” But sometimes there is something else that must be done.

The time has come for us to shake off that “instant” mentality and realize that there are situations where we’re going to have to take some time and pray in the Holy Ghost. Times when we’re going to have to sit there and listen for God’s instructions.

If you’ve come up short in any area of life—whether it be healing or finances or anything else—determine to develop your Word skills where that area is concerned. Get out your Bible. Read all through the healing scriptures. Read all through the miracle scriptures. Read all through the promises of God. Read all through the blessings of Abraham.

Meditate on them. Ask God to speak to you through them and to enlighten you about the situation you’re facing. Don’t just sling the Word around. Dig in to it. Fellowship with your Father over it. Let Him show you how to apply it skillfully, and eventually, you’ll lack no good thing.

The word skillful means:
-with experience
-experienced
The dictionary definition is:
-not an amateur
-good at doing something

One Bible definition for skillful is: lamad:
-to teach
-to learn
-to be taught
-to be trained
-exercise in

Strong’s definition:
-to goad, to teach, accustomed, diligently, EXPERT, instruct, learn, teach, teacher, to discipline
-recruits for war
-trained for war

Psalm 18:34
He TEACHES my hands to war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

Song of Solomon 3:8
They all handle the sword and are EXPERT in war; every man has his sword upon his thigh, that fear be not excited in the night.

Excerpt from the prophecy given by Jerry Savelle on May 14, 1989 at Living Word Christian Center:

“Breakthroughs are on the horizon. Breakthroughs,” saith the Lord of Grace.

“For in the field of technology there have been breakthroughs—in the field of medicine there have been breakthroughs, in the computer age there have been breakthroughs and now it’s time for a breakthrough in the Spirit.

“It is time for you to go further than you have ever been before. It is time for you to experience My glory as you have never experienced before, for I have said that you go from faith to faith and from glory to glory. And it is time for a new dimension,” saith the Lord, “a breakthrough.”

“If breakthroughs can be experienced in the natural realm, why not in the Spirit? And this is the hour for breakthroughs. For I am going to enable you to experience a breakthrough in the Spirit realm where subduing kingdoms is concerned. You will begin to understand spiritual warfare as you have not known it in days past.

“Some have seen but a glimpse, but in the days to come, you will know it as a general. You will know it as a technician—you will know it as those who are EXPERTS in their field for I am raising up a people that shall be EXPERTS IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE. I am raising up people that shall be technicians in spiritual warfare and they will not only know, but they will share and they will show and they will demonstrate and it shall be widespread and many kingdoms shall fall,” saith the Lord.

“For this is the day and the hour for breakthroughs. And your city is headed for a breakthrough. For I have heard the cry of those who are stirred in their hearts. I have heard the cry of those whose bones, whose spirit, whose soul are a fire and a flame. For it is time for the breakthrough. It is time…

Praying for Eagles Nest Church to be skillful /experts in spiritual warfare.

We lift up our Prime Minister and his office Lord; we lift up the federal, provincial, and municipal governments; we lift up mayors’ offices; we lift up premiers, and city councils. We ask You for wisdom Father, grant them Your wisdom for it is Your wisdom that will dismantle the wisdom of men. That there would be a fear of the Lord—that is the beginning of wisdom, a reverential fear of God. Lord we are praying according to 1 Timothy 2:1-6, for all men and those in authority. Oh, that we the Canadian people would live a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness. Even these individuals, in authority, You want to know the truth—that there is only One God and One Saviour, the man Christ Jesus. Awaken these men and women Lord God that the will see the truth. It’s truth that will set them free, its truth that will cause them to rule in a godly manner—a manner pleasing to You. Father open the doors for the labourers to reach these individuals, we ask in Jesus name. God appointments. They shall not fear the faces of men, but they shall walk in the power of Your Spirit and the power of Your Word. Oh, they will go through doors that seem impossible, but there’s nothing impossible with You Father. Yes, even doors into the kings’ chambers. We pull down every high thing that would exalt itself over the Word that they are bringing, in the name of Jesus. Oh, we bind that spirit of darkness, that spirit of death and destruction—we bind you and uproot you now, in Jesus name. Oh, ever covert operation of the enemy that would try and influence these elections we say, no, you will not have any control. We root you out, in the name of Jesus. Every lie shall be exposed. Every hidden thing brought to light. We thank You Father. People are going to the polls with their eyes open and they’re making right decisions.
  • Father we pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We cover the government under the blood of Jesus. Divine protection against their enemies. The blood! The blood! The blood is prevailing over this nation! The blood covers those that labour for the kingdom. Father grant the Prime Minister, his cabinet and the Knesset the wisdom of God. We pray for unity, in the name of Jesus. Wisdom for the military leaders. Father, an awakening amongst the Israelis—an awakening to the truth of God’s Word. Revelation comes by the Spirit. Eyes to see and ears to hear. We ask these things in the name of Jesus.
  • We lift up this congregation and the leaders—Pastor Ric and Deborah. Father we cover them under the blood of Jesus. We thank You Father, we are marked as the favoured ones. You have marked us Father for our obedience and our faithfulness. We are tithers Father and we hold fast to the promise You gave them. You’re pouring out a blessing upon us that cannot be contained. The devourer shall not devour what belongs to us, our fields are protected, our families are protected, our health is protected, our minds are covered under the blood of Jesus so there is shalom. Thank You. We receive this morning all that You have promised us: the people, the land, the finances, the provisions. We receive it this morning, in the name of Jesus. To the glory and honour of Your name. This House shall be a beacon to this city. A place that people know God resides. They shall know we are the favoured ones because of the overflowing blessings You are pouring out upon us. We are blessed to be a blessing. Favour with men and favour with God. Oh, we thank You Father.

John 7:37-39 (TPT) – 37 Then on the most important day of the feast, the last day, Jesus stood and shouted out to the crowds—“All you thirsty ones, come to Me! Come to Me and drink! 38 Believe in Me so that rivers of living water will burst out from within you, flowing from your innermost being, just like the Scripture says!”
39 Jesus was prophesying about the Holy Spirit that believers were being prepared to receive. But the Holy Spirit had not yet been poured out upon them, because Jesus had not yet been unveiled in His full splendour.

Matthew 3:11 (TPT) – Those who repent I baptize with water, but there is coming a Man after me who is more powerful than I am. In fact, I’m not even worthy enough to pick up His sandals. He will submerge you into union with the Spirit of Holiness and with a raging fire!

Matthew 3:16 (TPT) – And as Jesus rose up out of the water, the heavenly realm opened up over Him and he saw the Holy Spirit descend out of the heavens and rest upon Him in the form of a dove,

Luke 4:1-2 (TPT) – From the moment of His baptism Jesus was overflowing with the Holy Spirit. He was taken by the Spirit from the Jordan into the lonely wilderness of Judea to experience the ordeal of testing by the accuser for forty days….

John 14:26 (AMPC) – But the Comforter (Counsellor), Healer, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.

Luke 24:49 (TPT) – And I will send the fulfillment of the Father’s promise to you. So stay here in the city until the mighty power of heaven falls upon you and wraps around you.

Acts 1:5 (AMPC) – For John baptized with water, but not many days from now you shall be baptized with (placed in, introduced into) the Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 44:1-5 (VOICE) – 3 Like a devoted gardener, I will pour sweet water on parched land, streams on hard-packed ground; I will pour My spirit on your children and grandchildren—and let My blessing flow to your descendants. 4 And they will sprout among the grasses, grow vibrant and tall like the willow trees lining a riverbank. 5 One will call out: “I belong to the Eternal.” Another will say, “Jacob is my people; Israel my honoured name.” Yet others will write “Property of the Eternal” on their hands.

Prayed…

  • Father You said if we ask You for a loaf of bread You will not give us a stone; or if we ask for a fish, You won’t give us a snake. If we ask You for an egg, You won’t give us a scorpion. If we ask You for the Holy Spirit, with confidence, we can anticipate that you will give us; even more of the One with Whom You have sealed us, through Whom You indwell us, and by Whom You are making us like Jesus. So, we ask You, Father, give us Your Holy Spirit in abundance, the rains of Your Spirit filling our hearts to overflowing. That Father we will tire of playing church, being lukewarm, being offended with one another, being in strife that separates the Body of Christ, and being preoccupied with this world—that we would walk holy, in a way that is suitable to our high rank, given to us in our divine calling; with tender humility and quiet patience, always demonstrating gentleness and generous love towards one another, especially towards those who may try our patience; being faithful to guard the sweet harmony of the Holy Spirit among us in the bond of peace. And that we will be about the Father’s business of reconciliation and restoration. We ask these things in Jesus name.
    Reference: (Luke 11:11-13); (Ephesians 1:13); (Ephesians 4:1-3); (1 Corinthians 5:18-20)
  • Father we need Your Holy Spirit. We can’t walk this walk without Your Spirit. We are dependent upon Him. He is the Comforter, but He is also the Healer, the Teacher, the One Who strengthens us to walk the walk. He’s the One that empowers us to stand and having done all, to stand. You said to ask, so this morning we are asking, oh for the rains of Your Spirit to be poured out over the Church, to saturate the leaders—to open their eyes that they will see they need the Holy Spirit. Father, pastors that are preaching wrong doctrine about the infilling of the Holy Spirit we pray that they will turn back to the preaching of the Your Word. Father give them revelation and understanding regarding the infilling of the Holy Spirit. We bind and uproot the spirit of deception and false doctrine in the name of Jesus. Father fill the church, fill the church that we will be able to walk holy, worthy of the Lord and pleasing Him. Where we lack understanding Father, we ask for the wisdom of God, the revelation of Your Spirit.
  • Father You said in Genesis 1:2 that the Holy Spirit brooded over the water, brood over the people, over the harvest. Rain down! Rain down! Rain down Your Spirit Lord God upon the people! Saturate hearts, soften hard hearts—bring the fear of the Lord. We ask it Father, in the name of Jesus that as the labourers deliver the Word to those that are waiting, You would quicken it by the Spirit in their hearts. Open their eyes and ears Father. Oh, that Your Holy Spirit would penetrate dark places; those troubled homes; those prison cells—natural and spiritual. Penetrate the highways and byways Father God like a heat seeking missile. Signs, wonders, and miracles following the Word—this is done by the Spirit not by the flesh. They can’t hide! They can’t hide! They can’t hide—we prayed Psalms 139:7-12.

Prayer-Life Crisis In The Church
By K. P. Yohannan

I will never forget one of my first prayer meetings in America. I had been in the United States for only a few weeks, and I was eager to meet the spiritual giants and leaders. Even before leaving India, I had heard of one man in particular. He was famous for his uncompromising defense of the Scriptures and sound doctrine.

So on that first Sunday, I hurried to visit his church – one of the most famous in the city. More than 3,000 attended the morning services to hear the talented choirs and outstanding preaching of the Word.

My ears perked right up when the pastor of the church announced a special emphasis at the upcoming mid-week prayer meeting. There were some things “heavy on his heart,” he said. He announced the name of a certain chapel, and I determined to attend.

In other parts of the world, where Christians are often persecuted and attacked for their faith, prayer meetings are the very centerpiece of the church calendar. Everyone attends. Prayer and worship often last long into the night. It is the powerhouse of their faith, and many believers rise before dawn for daily prayer meetings.

Prayer is probably the best thermometer you will ever have to measure your growth in Christ. It drives all that is truly spiritual, both in our churches and personal lives.

On the appointed night I arrived early, fearful that I would not get a good seat – or even a seat at all! Right away I noticed that there was room for only about 500 worshippers, but there was no singing or clapping. The hall was completely empty. I walked all the way to the front and took a seat to wait.

By 7:15 I was getting really worried. “I must have gotten the wrong hall,” I reasoned. I even went outside to check the name above the door to make certain I was in the right place.

Finally, at 7:30 several others came into the huge hall. There was no leader, songs, or worship. People sat and talked about sports and weather.

After about forty-five minutes an elderly man came in to lead the prayer meeting. The pastor was not even there. I counted seven people. The elderly man read a Scripture, made some devotional observations and led a brief prayer.

As the others got up to leave, I sat stunned. Was this it? Were they not going to stay and wait upon God? Where was the worship? The tears? The cries for guidance and direction? Where was the list of the sick, and the poor, and those in need? What about that burden the pastor said was heavy on his heart? Were we not going to intercede for a miracle?

And what about missions? This church supported missions on every continent. Were they not going to pass around the missionary prayer letters and pray together for those facing attacks from Satan on the front lines?

Many set up their churches and lives much like their secular businesses and careers. With or without the blessing and presence of God, religion goes on like a well-oiled machine.

These churches by the tens of thousands have what are called “mid-week prayer meetings.” But it is a shame even to call them prayer meetings. What really happens seldom has anything to do with prayer at all! The people gather. Someone stands to lead some singing. Then one person prays – briefly. Another person reads a list of announcements. Of course, the preacher usually delivers a short homily. In some cases, there may then be a few prayers, but most close having had no real time of prayer at all. How can we call that a prayer meeting?

Nothing reveals the bankruptcy of modern Christianity more clearly and quickly than the current crisis in prayer. It has reached emergency proportions.

I Can Handle It Myself, Thank You!

Many times, I have asked, “Why is it that we as believers in the West do not pray more?” and “Why is it churches do not give more attention to prayer?”

After all, since prayer is the ultimate act of spiritual intimacy with God, should it not be the central activity of our whole lives? It cannot be that we lack teaching on prayer. Few Christians have more books and seminars on prayer than do the believers of North America.
The awful truth, whether we admit it or not, is that we do not pray because in our hearts we do not think we really need God. We do not know how to pray because true prayer can only originate from a life emptied of self-sufficiency.

The church we see today is truly the church of Laodicea described in Revelation 3:14-22. There is no more accurate description of our spiritual condition anywhere in the Bible. Jesus said of this church, “I know thy works, that thou are neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of My mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” (vv. 15-17).

Our prayerlessness highlights our self-sufficiency. This “I-can-handle-it-myself” mindset is the spiritual cancer of our times. It is the root cause of the present powerlessness both in our personal lives and our churches. Because we have not yet comprehended the essence of prayer, we fail to see the arrogance and terrible rebellion of our present state.

We have so much else to depend on today – buildings, machines, money, programs and technology. We spend thousands of hours with consultants in study and planning. Yet there seems to be no time to pray.

Clearly, we have lost touch with the eternal, living God. Instead, we are serving the machines, programs and systems that we have established. But they are an idol, a god that we have created and now control with our own ingenuity. And the message of the Bible on idolatry is clear. Either we will turn from these idols and trust in God, or the Lord Himself will intervene to destroy the work of our flesh. It is dangerous to travel on in this pathway of pride – in our personal lives as well as our church lives.

Waiting for Power from Above

How different our current lifestyle is from the instructions of Christ to the first disciples. After three and a half years of constant example and teaching, what was the only lesson He wanted them to remember? “Without Me you can do nothing!” No wonder He told them to tarry in Jerusalem and wait until they were endowed with power from above, before they went out to fulfill the Great Commission. He wanted them to realize that, in and of themselves, they were headed for disaster. (See John 15:5; Acts 1:4-8.)

Unless we come to this place of total helplessness, we can never understand prayer. This is why Paul says, “When I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Cor. 12:10). Prayer is nothing more than voicing our dependence upon God. And the answer to every prayer is nothing more than this: God is with us, in all His power and authority, to make up for our human limitations.

Each of us, in our own personal daily walk and work, is led through trials and tribulations. These test our faith and should spur us on to a life of more prayer and deeper dependence upon God.

We have countless opportunities to trust God in the world of missions work. However, even in this realm where it would seem we would want to depend on God the most, it is rare to find leaders moving out in reliance upon the Lord.…

We have time to study anthropology, sociology, theology, marketing and media, but we have not time to pray. It is nothing for our leaders to spend two or three days in continual planning and scheming. Yet you will seldom find these same men and women on their knees for one night of prayer. Why are we not waiting for a revelation of His plan? Crying out for the invisible God to go before us in battle?

Is this not a clear indication these leaders and organizations are trying to reach the lost world without coming to grips with spiritual reality? How can we overcome unseen spiritual forces, cast down evil strongholds and open closed doors unless we are a people of prayer? God’s army always moves forward on its knees.

This ‘Great Awakening’
Prophecy delivered by Kenneth Copeland on July 4, 2009
West Coast Believers’ Convention

(Tongues) “This ‘Great Awakening’ that is hanging heavy over the United States even tonight. This ‘Great Awakening’ that’s hanging heavy around the nations of the world but most especially in this country and in Canada. This ‘Great Awakening’ that is hanging there, just hanging there to be realized and to be, to be flowed and released throughout this nation and throughout the nation of Canada, and then in turn throughout the rest of the world.

“The prayer, the prayer, the prayer, the prayer that’s gone forth. The prayer that is going forth, that’s where the power release is. That’s where the trigger to these things is, that’s the way you release them in your church. And thus saith The LORD thy God, “In this hour these churches that are teaching and training people to pray of which are on this list and many others also, those are the churches where the explosion and the Shekinah glory of God will be manifest first.

“The praying churches will walk in it first. And they’ll say, ‘My, revival broke out over there.’ No, answered prayer broke out over there. The ‘Awakening’ will come out of congregations. There is a hunger in this nation for holiness. Holiness—real truth, Bible purity before God—and people will run into houses of worship where the glory of God is residing and hanging heavy. And they’ll say, ‘Clean, clean, clean! Oh to be clean, to be clean.’ And they’ll run into that atmosphere and My blood will cleanse them from the top of their head to the soles of their feet.

“And My WORD will take root on the inside of them, and this nation is headed for a Holy Ghost wake-up call. It is on us now—you rejoice, for we’ll see it before many hours go by.” Hallelujah

We prayed for the Body of Christ to realize the importance of corporate prayer. When Believers come together and pray prayers of faith, power and glory is released.

Prayed…

  • Father, we come to You in the name of Jesus. Father we pray that the eyes of their understanding of the believers is enlightened to the truth of the importance of prayer. We pray our prayers be full of Your faith and full of substance. They know as they pray that You hear and respond.
  • We pray there is not only an increase in the prayer meetings, but also of those who intercede. Increase is coming in Jesus name. The pray-ers are bringing it to birth. Father forgive the church because we have put no emphasis on prayer and we have let go by. Thank You that the prayer meetings are Your meetings.
  • Holy Spirit have Your way. Thank You that people are yielding to tongues and are filled with Your Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. There is power in prayer. Thank You that as Your people pray there is the shekinah glory released. How can we see the manifestation of the glory with no prayer? Thank You for revelation coming to pastors of the importance of corporate prayer. Prayer and fasting.
  • Though we dropped the ball, we get back on the wall. Yes, every prayer is a powerful weapon. No more excuses.
  • Thank You for those religious prayer meetings that are turning into Holy Ghost prayer meetings. Thank You Lord.

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.

Definition of expectation: 1. the act or state of expecting: anticipation; something expected 2. basis for expectation: assurance (they have every expectation of success) 3. prospects of inheritance 4. the feeling of expecting something to happen 5. the feeling that good things are going to happen in the future.

  • Someone wrote – confidence is bold expectation God will answer. Ephesians 3:12 (TPT) – we have boldness through Him, and free access as kings before the Father because of our complete confidence in Christ’s faithfulness.
  • Faith is confident expectation that what God has spoken is true.
  • Elijah believed even though there was not a cloud in the sky—he stayed in that place of faith—expecting that what he prayed, according to God’s Word, would happen.

1 Kings 18:1-2, 41-46 (MSG) – 1-2 A long time passed. Then God’s word came to Elijah. The drought was now in its third year. The message: “Go and present yourself to Ahab; I’m about to make it rain on the country.” Elijah set out to present himself to Ahab. The drought in Samaria at the time was most severe……41 Elijah said to Ahab, “Up on your feet! Eat and drink—celebrate! Rain is on the way; I hear it coming.” 42-43 Ahab did it: got up and ate and drank. Meanwhile, Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bowed deeply in prayer, his face between his knees. Then he said to his young servant, “On your feet now! Look toward the sea.” He went, looked, and reported back, “I don’t see a thing.” “Keep looking,” said Elijah, “seven times if necessary.” 44 And sure enough, the seventh time he said, “Oh yes, a cloud! But very small, no bigger than someone’s hand, rising out of the sea.” “Quickly then, on your way. Tell Ahab, ‘Saddle up and get down from the mountain before the rain stops you.’” 45-46 Things happened fast. The sky grew black with wind-driven clouds, and then a huge cloudburst of rain, with Ahab hightailing it in his chariot for Jezreel. And God strengthened Elijah mightily. Pulling up his robe and tying it around his waist, Elijah ran in front of Ahab’s chariot until they reached Jezreel.

  • Seven: The number seven has great significance, according to scholars, throughout the bible. Seven is the number of completeness and perfection (both physical and spiritual). It derives much of its meaning from being tied directly to God’s creation of all things.

An expectant heart (that receives and believes God’s Word and promises) releases God’s power in their lives – Hebrews 11:1 (TPT) – Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen.

Psalm 130:5-7 (TLB) – That is why I wait expectantly trusting God to help, for He has promised.

Mark 11:24 (TPT) – This is the reason I urge you to boldly believe for whatever you ask for in prayer—believe that you have received it and it will be yours.

This morning we are praying that God’s supernatural strength will flood our innermost being with divine might and explosive power. That we will press through in prayer and faith until we see fulfillment—confident expectation for what He has spoken to us in His Word and in His promises to us personally. That even though things may not seem to be happening or are so small they seem insignificant—we hold fast the confession of our faith. God is working on our behalf.

The harvest is coming in, the reapers are going forward. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Lord.

Introduction to the book of Judges
“The Holy Spirit at Work”

The activity of the Spirit of the Lord in the Book of Judges is clearly portrayed in the charismatic leadership of the period. The following heroic deeds of Othniel, Gideon, Jephthah, and Samson are attributed to the Spirit of the Lord:
1 . The Spirit of the Lord came upon Othniel (3:10) and enabled him to deliver the Israelites from the hand of Cushan-Rishathaim, king of Mesopotamia.
2 . Through the personal presence of the Spirit of the Lord, Gideon (6:34) delivered God’s people from the oppression of the Midianites. Literally, the Spirit of the Lord clothed Himself with Gideon. The Spirit empowered this divinely appointed leader and acted through him to accomplish the Lord’s saving act on behalf of His people.
3 . The Spirit of the Lord equipped Jephthah (11:29) with leadership skills in his military pursuit against the Ammonites. Jephthah’s victory over the Ammonites was the Lord’s act of deliverance on behalf of Israel.
4 . The Spirit of the Lord empowered Samson to perform extraordinary deeds. He began to stir Samson (13:25). The Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him on several occasions. He tore a lion apart with his bare hands (14:6). At one time he killed thirty Philistines (14:19) and at another time he freed himself from ropes that bound his hands and killed a thousand Philistines with the jawbone of a donkey (15:14, 15).
The same Holy Spirit who enabled these deliverers to do exploits and fulfill the Lord’s plans and purposes is at work today. He desires to move upon His people so that they too can do impossible things. The Lord wants to bring deliverance to His people, and He is looking for consecrated men and women whom He can empower with His Holy Spirit.

Judges 3:7-11
Othniel
So the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord. They forgot the Lord their God, and served the Baals and Asherahs. Therefore the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, and He sold them into the hand of Cushan-Rishathaim king of Mesopotamia; and the children of Israel served Cushan-Rishathaim eight years. When the children of Israel cried out to the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliverer for the children of Israel, who delivered them: Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother. The Spirit of the Lord came upon him, and he judged Israel. He went out to war, and the Lord delivered Cushan-Rishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed over Cushan-Rishathaim. So the land had rest for forty years. Then Othniel the son of Kenaz died.

We prayed for the Othniels to rise up!

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…

You’re a just God! And we thank You—thank You for being our God. You’re the God that saves! You’re the God that delivers! You’re the God that restores! You’re the God that heals! Blessed be the name of the Lord forevermore! We thank You for the blood! We thank You for the blood! We thank You for Jesus Christ—the One Who holds all authority and power—our Lord, our Saviour, our King! Thank You for the Holy Spirit—the Comforter; the Teacher; the Guide; the Strengthener. Thank You for sending Him Father.
  • Oh, Lord You reign over Canada. We say, have dominion from sea to sea—Father, over every province. Oh, there will be a shaking up in the government. Father shake them up—the fear of the Lord be upon them this morning. We bind that spirit of pride, in the name of Jesus. Corruption being exposed in our government—Father, exposure, in Jesus’ name. Hidden things revealed. Even those things that they have hidden in the dark, dark places that they think won’t be seen—exposure! Father let there be voices of righteousness heralding in the halls of Parliament. Oh, it brings conviction—it brings repentance—it brings leaving of wickedness. Open doors for those men and women—bold of heart, saying “Thus says the Lord.” Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Yes, fulfillment of everything they speak—in the halls of Parliament they will know that God has spoken. We pray for every governmental office this morning. Father grant unto them Your wisdom and discernment—for it is Your wisdom that will dismantle the wisdom of men. The blood of Jesus over this nation—surrounding our borders. We cover those who protect us: the military, police forces, and border guards. Alert, they’re on the alert. Father we pray for the upcoming elections that You will have Your way. It’s Your time Father. A time of change. A time of change—days of fulfillment for Canada. Father that the Church’s voice, through the ballots, will usher in this change. No more sitting on the side lines. Father imprint it upon the heart and minds that these days are critical. Stepping up to the plate—the Church is stepping up to the plate.
  • Father we pray for the peace of Jerusalem—shalom, shalom! Grant unto the government Lord God Your wisdom, Your discernment and an understanding of the times in which they’re living. Angels on assignment—protecting angels, angels that bring provision, comforting angels. Open the people’s eyes Father God to the truth of Your Word. Holy Spirit we pray for an awakening—an awakening in this hour Lord God of Your people. Strengthen the labourers Father. Oh, they are wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Father, open doors, open doors! They don’t fear the faces of men. Grant unto them the boldness to speak Father. Your Word running swiftly through the land. We thank You Father.

God hates sin, but He loves the sinner. The price for God’s forgiveness was high, but Jesus paid the price Himself on the cross. Our assurance of forgiveness came through the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ – Hebrews 9:22 (TPT) – Actually, nearly everything under the law was purified with blood, since forgiveness only comes through an outpouring of blood.

Psalm 32:1-2 (TPT) – 1 How happy and fulfilled are those whose rebellion has been forgiven, those whose sins are covered by blood. 2 How blessed and relieved are those who have confessed their corruption to God! For He wipes their slates clean and removes hypocrisy from their hearts.

  • Hebrew word here for “forgiveness” means “lifted off.” Sin’s guilt is a burden that must be lifted off the soul.
  • David uses three Hebrew words to describe sin: rebellion, sins (failures, falling short), and corruption (crookedness, the twisting of right standards)

1 Peter 3:18 (TPT) – Christ suffered and died for sins once and for all—the innocent for the guilty—to bring you near to God by His body being put to death and by being raised to life by the Spirit.

Ephesians 1:7 (TPT) – Since we are now joined to Christ, we have been given the treasures of redemption by His blood—the total cancellation of our sins—all because of the cascading riches of His grace.

(NKJV) – In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sin, according to the riches of His grace.

  • Forgiveness (Greek word ‘aphesis’) here means “to send away” or “set free” (from bondage).

Isaiah 43:25 (VOICE) – So let’s get this clear: it’s for My own sake that I save you. I am He who wipes the slate clean and erases your wrongdoing. I will not call to mind your sins anymore.

Micah 7:18-19 (AMP) – 18 Who is a God like You, who forgives wickedness and passes over the rebellious acts of the remnant of His possession? He dos not retain His anger forever, because He [constantly] delights in mercy and lovingkindness. 19 He shall again have compassion on us; He will subdue and tread underfoot our wickedness [destroying sin’s power]. Yes, You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.

Psalm 103:12 (AMPC) – Farther than from a sunrise to a sunset—that’s how far You’ve removed our guilt from us.

We’re praying for voices of righteousness to arise in the nations of the earth—to preach repentance and the forgiveness of sins so men will turn to Jesus Christ—Luke 24:47.

We are praying for ears to hear and eyes to see the truth of God’s Word as revealed by the Holy Spirit. That Jesus Christ is the One true God and Lord of salvation. We pray that these hearts would be submitted hearts—repentant hearts—hearts of flesh and not of stone. Luke 5:32 (TPT) – I have not come to call the righteous, but to call those who fail to measure up and bring them to repentance.

Prayed…

  • Father we lift up the harvest this morning and those of the Body of Christ that may be snared by sin. Father, You love the sinner, but You hate the sin. We ask for an out pouring of Your Spirit this morning. We pray for open eyes and open ears to heart what Your saying this morning. Oh, Father let there arise that spirit of John the Baptist that preached repentance and the forgiveness of sin—boldly declaring the Word of God. Oh, we say the chains of addictions are being broken off people lives this morning. That spirit of alcoholism, drug addictions, pornography, homosexuality, sexual sins. The spirit of rebellion off our children Lord God. That religious spirit that holds people bound. Those caught in satanism—we break your hold off these lives, in the name of Jesus. Chains are being loosed this morning—broken off! Father today they hear the call to repentance and they heed the call. Labourers heralding the Word. It’s the Word that will set men free. Holy Spirit soften those hearts that are like stone this morning. The fear of the Lord! The fear of the Lord be upon the harvest this morning. They will say, what must we do to be saved! Oh, the Word is being presented in a clear way that the understand. Father You said in Your Word, Luke 24:45 (TPT) – Then He [thoroughly] opened up their minds to understand the scriptures. We thank You for understanding. The harvest is understanding because You are revealing it by the Spirit. We thank You for the blood of Jesus that cleanses us from all unrighteousness. We thank You for the Holy Spirit that is even now ministering to hearts across the earth. Revelation and truth come. Ha! Ha! Ha! Many making the decision for Christ this morning. We thank You Father—no one is too difficult. No situation is impossible for You to get somebody out of. Great escapes! We declare this morning, great escapes! Ha! Ha! Ha! Thank You Jesus. Thank You Lord, none lift behind. We say, Father, none left behind, in the name of Jesus. Ha! Ha! Ha! The work of darkness has been defeated by the blood of Jesus. We bind that spirit of deception. Thank You Lord.
