Why Pray?  Lesson #1

 

Lesson #1 in a Series.

The Prayer meeting for today will be the sixteenth meeting of this kind since we began praying here on Facebook.  The Lord has laid it upon my heart to PRAY AS A WHOLE BODY COMING TOGETHER.  It all began when I placed on my wall a note saying I would be willing to PRAY SPECIAL AND INTERCEED FOR PEOPLE.  So much responce to that add came in that it was almost overwhelming.  I prayed about it and the Lord said to OPEN IT UP FOR ALL TO PRAY.  When I did open it up… WOW THE LORD DID A MIGHTY THING.

From the Beginning I have felt the HOLY SPIRIT POWER ON THESE PRAYER THREADS AS NEVER BEFORE.  Many were set free ON THE THREAD, Prophetic Words came forth, and Revelation Knowledge began to flow.  The Holy Spirit began to do an eternal work on us all.  IT WAS MOST AMAZING … TO SAY THE LEAST.  I believe if you will study ACTS 4:23-37 YOU WILL DISCOVER THE REASONS!

ACTS 4:23-37

“And being let go, they went to their own company  [note this word… they went to their own company, and that company was the Church exclusive, the believing Body of Christ, GATHERED TOGETHER AS ONE],  and reported all that the chief priest and elders had said unto them. [they talked about the things going on and discussed the needs]   And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that is in them :  Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?
The kings of the Earth stood up and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.
For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,  
For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.
And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word.
By streatching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.
And when they had prayed, THE PLACE WAS SHAKEN WHERE THEY WERE ASSEMBLED TOGETHER; and THEY WERE ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST, AND THEY SPAKE THE WORD OF GOD WITH BOLDNESS. 
 [emphysis added with CAPS to call your attention at what happens when Christians gather together IN COMMON and when they AGREE TOGETHER moving in the CORRECT MANNER… PRAISING GOD AND LOOKING TO GOD FOR THE ANSWERS]
And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he posessed was his own; but they had all things common.  And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold.
And laid them down at the apostles feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.”

I call your attention to these scriptures because I BELIEVE WE FIND THE PATTERN FOR UNITED PRAYER HERE.  It is IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND that when people OF LIKE MIND AND HEART WHO ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD…. COME TOGETHER…. there is going to be a ……

***((( SHAKING )))***

and… NEEDS WILL BE MET.

Folks do we not NEED MANY THINGS TODAY?  Of course the answer is YES.  There are so many needs which among the MOST NEEDED is for the BODY TO DO THIS VERY THING…   TO COME TO THE GATHERING [OF LIKE KIND] AND TO ….

#1. TALK ABOUT THE NEEDS:   Bringing the truth of this hour to bear upon the gathering.  In the early prayer meeting they did talk of how the Religious Jews had risen up AGAINST THEM and they talked about how THEY WERE OUT TO DESTROY JESUS HIMSELF.  They pointed out to GOD…. how that even the World of men around them were EMBOLDEN AGAINST THE CHRISTIAN AND GOD, EVEN THE GENTILES.

#2. THEY PRAYED AND PRAISED THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY:   Praising Him with a mighty recognination of WHO HE IS… AND … THEY EXALTED THE NAME AND PERSON OF THE LORD WITH MIGHTY PRAISE.  Praise unto God cannot be underestimated as to its EFFECT upon the Lord.  The Scripture says GOD INHABITS THE PRAISES OF HIS PEOPLE.

#3. THEY ASKED GOD TO MOVE HIS MIGHTY HAND OVER HIS ENEMIES WITH SIGNS AND WONDERS:   They know that IF THE LORD DID NOT MOVE… THEY WERE UNABLE WITHIN THEMSELVES..  They DID CRY OUT WITH EXPECTANCY and had FAITH that God would MOVE HIS MIGHTY HAND AND HEAL.

For sake of time and CLARITY.  I will let this stand now as written above, BELIEVING GOD, to OPEN your heart and LET YOU SEE THE PATTERN FOR PRAYER.  I believe this is the reason why the WORLD WIDE PRAYER MEETINGS HAVE BEEN A BLESSING….   Because in the past we have Gathered together to PRAY WITH ALL THINGS COMMON.

In the past when we did not do that….  the prayer meeting did not move with as much power.

SO….

TODAY LET US MOVE TOGETHER and have this ONE MIND.  That WE MUST HAVE GOD MOVE HIS MIGHTY HAND AND STRIKE IT OVER THE devil AND ALL HIS coharts.  AND… WE MUST HAVE THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THIS PRAYER MEETING or nothing OUT OF THE ORDINARY WILL HAPPEN.

SO…  LETS PRAY:

HEAVENLY FATHER BRING US ALL TOGETHER  IN ONE HEART AND ONE MIND.  HELP US TO LAY ALL OUR ISSUES DOWN AND TO GATHER TOGETHER AS CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD WHO ARE ALL IN THIS WORLD OF LIKE CONDITIONS.

LORD YOU ARE GOD, WHICH HAS MADE HEAVEN, AND EARTH AND THE SEA, AND ALL THAT IN THEM IS …  TAKE NOTE THAT THE RELIGIOUS ARE BENT TO DESTROY THE TRUE JESUS AND BRING DOWN HIS GLORY, TILL HE BE LIKE THEM.

LORD SEE HOW THE ENEMY HAS MOVED TO DESTROY YOUR PEOPLE AND TO HURT THEM.  MUCH PROBLEMS ARE EVERYWHERE BECAUSE OF HIS DOINGS AND ILLEGIAL WORK UPON YOUR PEOPLE; SO MANY ARE SICK AND HURTING PHYSICALLY AND LOOK AND SEE HOW THE ENEMY HAS ROBBED AND HURT CAUSING THEIR MONY TO BE SHORT AND FUNDS AVAILABLE TO WORK FOR YOU HAS BEEN SIT UPON.

SEE THE WORLD GOING SO FAR AS TO REMOVE YOU FROM THEMSELVES AND FORBIDDING YOUR PEOPLES RIGHT TO EVEN PREACH ANY MORE IN YOUR NAME.  NOTE THAT THE WORLD HAS SAID THEY DO NOT NEED YOU AND THAT THEY DO NOT WANT YOU.  MANY HERE IN AMERICA, AND I KNOW ALL OVER THE EARTH, HAVE RISEN UP TO LIVE IN SIN AND TO CHOOSE THE PATH OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.  THEY MAKE NO ATTEMPT TO HIDE THEIR SIN BUT MOVE IN OPEN REBELLION AGAINST YOU AND US.  LORD THE HEATHEN RAGE…. AND THEY IMAGINE A VAIN THING.. EVEN THE KINGS OF THE EARTH ARE RISEN UP AGAINST YOU.

NOW LORD BEHOLD THEIR THREATENINGS AND GRANT UNTO THY SERVENTS POWER TO SPEAK YOUR WORD.  PLACE THOSE WORDS EVEN IN OUR MOUTHS AND CAUSE US TO RISE IN BOLDNESS.  HELP US OH LORD TO MOVE BY REMOVING THE POWER OF THE devil AND ALL HIS coharts FROM OUR VERY LIVES TODAY AND SETTING US FREE IN THE POWER OF YOUR RESURRECTED LIFE BY THE CROSS.

STRIKE NOW YOU MIGHTY HAND OVER THE ENEMYS AND SHAKE THEM AND US.  MOVE IN SIGNS WONDERS AND MIRACLES.  GIVE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND MIGHTY REVELATION GIFTS, EVEN CREATIVE MIRACLES.  MAY ALL WHO COME AND ALL WHO HEAR OF YOUR MIGHTY DEEDS BE …

SHAKEN AND MOVED AND CHANGED FOREVER.

FOR I ASK IT IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.
AMEN
