ELUL, ON THE 10TH DAY OF PRAYER. Who Do You Say That I Am?

August 29th: TODAY WE ARE READING & PRAYING PSALMS 105-111

Ref: ELUL, OUR 29 DAY BANQUET OF PRAYER… TO HONOR THE KING OF GLORY!

Psalm 105:

Bless the LORD, Oh MY Soul. LORD You Are Very Great. You are clothe with honor and majesty!

You cover yourself with light as with a garment, and shed light on us…so we can be Your Light on earth! How much You trust us with Your Light.

LORD, just as you have set a boundary that the waters can not pass over, that they not cover the earth again…

The sun does not rise or set, except by Your Word. It shall stay its course,

The moon shall rise and set, there shall be no deviation from its path, the clouds shall be your chariot, You shall walk upon the wings of the wind, You make the angels spirits and a flaming fire, the foundations of the earth shall not be moved…

This far and no further….

At one time the waters stood above the mountains. At Your rebuke they fled, and the thunder hasted away. You appointed the moon for seasons, and the sun knows when to go down…

You hide Your Face and we are troubled…You take away our breath and we die and return to dust… You send forth your spirit and we are created, and recreated, born and born again.

At Your thought, the world renews itself and gives us a home on earth that sustains us.

Now LORD, we have given our leaders enough time, we have looked to them for guidance and found none.. we have waited for their science to solve our pandemic… they asked for 2 years, or 18 months for vaccines so that they can bring this epic-epidemic to an end.

Clearly, they have no solutions…we are to wash our hands and wear a mask. It’s the least we can do, and the best they can offer and I completely understand…they are out of their depth. We have funded WHO’s and CDC’s for decades and the world stands spellbound in the hands of men.

Don’t Let Us Fall Into The Hands of Man ….

Science does need time and good people are working diligently to bring us a solution. Countries are jockeying for position, “Who shall be first with a cure”, as if its a competition. Some are even dismissing the efforts of other countries, saying they don’t have the brain power, wisdom, skill or science to produce a cure. Once again, racial bias wants to dominate and determine not only, who lives and who dies, but what color can find a cure. Some are more concerned with the color of the cure than saving many people alive!

But You Oh LORD, are a shield for us, our glory and the lifter up of our heads

The world needs more time…

But You LORD, can make an end in a day!

Just as you have set the boundaries for the elements, the world, the sun, the moon and the stars, just as You have set the boundaries for the waters, on earth and in Heaven,

Agree with us tonight LORD… set the boundaries for this pandemic,

Dispatch your angels to set every cell of they virus on fire…. we curse every molecule to its root!

We decree and declare, that covid must die… we declare divine reversal..

The world needs 12-18 more months to attempt a best solution,

All we need is a Word from the LORD… All we need is strong agreement.

All we need is 2 or more in complete agreement, steadfast in prayer, consecrated, dedicated believers.

There are nearly 9 billion people on earth. There must be 2 who agree, and will not come into ungodly agreement with a plague. Who will not give it any quarter, any room for expansion.. who will hear every news report and forecast and cast those words down into the pit, like vain imaginations, and every high thought that sought to exalt itself above the knowledge of the Most High GOD!

There must be 2 Witnesses to the Power of GOD in their lives and who can speak that same anointing onto the world! There must be someone healed from the incurable, the impossible, the diabolical. There must be at least two people that can stand with us and shout, this far and no further!

Who will agree with me and call this thing illegal, its reign of terror over, its assignment cursed to the root!

Our sons and daughters and children’s grandchildren shall live. Our parents and grandparents shall not be susceptible, we bind this predator off of their homes, their lives, we decree and declare they shall be still, they shall abide under the protection of the Most High GOD, Everyone assigned in their lives shall proceed with great care and wisdom concerning their care, their lives, their handling…

Nothing by no means shall harm them. Enough!

This thing seeks our lives, to attach itself to our lungs and suffocate.

We decree that covid must die, we suffocate covid with prayer, fasting and consecration, with our faith and trust in GOD.

We suffocate and destroy every assignment of the enemy by faith in the WORD of GOD that proceeds out of our mouth. With every thing the enemy finds foolish in our prayers, we say, “Watch, and see how the LORD, GOD, ALMIGHTY, comes for our word in prayer to perform it! We have seen the Goodness of GOD in the Land of the Living and we shall see His Goodness over and over again!

We draw a line in the spirit realm and everyone under the covering of our prayers, on our prayer list, on our hearts and minds, shall be covered, included, blessed and highly favored!

While praying this prayer, I hear the teaching from 1 Samuel 18 when Elijah said that the GOD who answers by fire, let Him be GOD.

24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.

I’m hearing Zechariah 4:2-3, when the angel woke him out of his sleep and asked him, “What sets thou?”

And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:

 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.

By Your WORD, I ask for healing of the earth, the atmosphere and Your People… All the souls that you have given us to care for. I ask for healing in our every breath. Cleanse us LORD, as You cleanse from all unrighteousness. I ask that You agree with me, with us…with Your People. We put You in remembrance of Your Word, LORD, ask that covid cross no more boundaries.

covid must turn and die.

(Isaiah 43:26. “Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.”)

Zechariah 4:

10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?

12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?

13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.

1Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.

We plead for the souls LORD, together, with One heart, one mind and one spirit. All we can offer is prayer, we have no science but The Lord of Host. Who is near and not 12 or 18 months away. ALL OF OUR CONFIDENCE IS IN YOU!

Send us two anointed ones, and even more LORD, that will stand by this prayer, as with the LORD of the whole earth and the GOD who answers by fire, He is GOD!

Amen.

DAY 2 –Entering the Month of Elul and the Sanctuary of GOD.

Prayer Schedule: ELUL, OUR 29 DAY BANQUET OF PRAYER…TO HONOR THE KING OF GLORY!

PSALM 15

15 Lord, who shall abide (guwr, dwell as a new-comer, someone without original rights) in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

LOOKING A LITTLE CLOSER THROUGH THE HEBREW….

1 Lord, who shall abide (guwr, dwell as a new-comer, someone without original rights) in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell (settle down) in thy holy hill?

He that walketh uprightly (tah-meem, blameless) and worketh (paw-al, do or make) righteousness (tseh’-dek, justice, what is right), and speaketh (de-var, speaks) the truth (eh-met) in his heart (bil-va-vo) .

He that backbiteth (raw-gal, walks around by foot) not with his tongue (law-shone), nor doeth evil (rah) to his neighbour (ray-ah, friend, companion), nor taketh up a reproach (cher-pah, disgrace) against his neighbour (kaw-robe, near… from the Hebrew root word kaw-rav, meaning to draw near).

In whose eyes a vile person is contemned (ma’as, to abhor); but he honoureth (yaw-ray, awe, reverence) them that fear (kaw-vad, heavy, weighty, weight of the Glory) the Lord (YHVH) . He that sweareth (shaw-bah, keeps their word, oath) to his own hurt, and changeth not.

He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward (bribe or present, gifts) against the innocent (naw-kee, clean, free from guilt, blameless). He that doeth these things shall never be moved (mote, be brought down, made to shake or slip).

Who shall abide in they tabernacle? Who shall dwell in they Holy Hill?

He who mirrors the character and nature of YHVH. He who meets the moral and ethical requirements of Holiness to enter the sanctuary. Psalm 15 spells it out in the very beginning of the initial psalm… “Those who do not follow the counsel of the wicked.”

At one point in time, we were all new-comers to GOD, strangers who dwelled outside of the covenant. The word choice is interesting. The prayer reminds us that we each had no original rights or privilege to occupy the dwelling place of GOD.

Today, we each have an open invitation into the sanctuary. But who is qualified to enter?

Those who worship GOD speak truth. Liars do not abide alongside the anointing.

Truth is a big word in Hebrew. The word for truth is emet. Emet is spelled with the 1st letter of GOD’s Name, the aleph (a). The middle letter of the Hebrew Alphabet is the men (m) and the last and final letter is the tav (t). aleph – mem- tav; representing the entirety of the Word of GOD.

GOD (Aleph) – the Core (Mem, the people, the nations) and His Covenant (Tav). Emet is truth, beginning, middle and end. There are no adjustments, no personal points of view or versions of truth.

Truth in Hebrew can not be expressed without including GOD, His People and His Gift to us of His Covenant. The dictionary definition of truth, does not capture truth to its core… GOD, His People, and Our Covenant.

In our culture, we have excluded GOD from our definition of truth. The world believes that GOD is not a consideration in the existence of truth.

By removing GOD from the equation, we have the Hebrew Word moot, (men- tav), meaning death. Cutting GOD out of our lives and language and understanding, etc means we are working with something absent of truth.

They that worship Him, must worship Him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24

David is trying to tell us

that among other things, lying will completely destroy our power in prayer. Slander and backbiting will disqualify us from destiny. The worshiper of GOD does not enter the sanctuary full of gossip and walking about maliciously spreading slander.

Psalm 15 is David’s prayer spoken over the generations delivered to us so that we may know that there is a protocol for entering the tent of GOD. The first step is to recognize that the degree to which our character and nature and ability to abide in truth and speak truth, will determine our ability to enter into the presence of GOD in prayer, study and worship.

There must be an important reason for that, don’t you think?

ELUL, A DAVID KIND OF PRAYER…

It was through the 50 days of continuos prayer of the disciples, that the Church was birth out at Pentecost. It was through prayer that David birth out the Kingdom, and left the Psalms as a legacy to the faith.

Prayer is All About Us.

You’ve heard me say before that prayer is about becoming a “miraculous marksman in the spirit realm.” Prayer is target oriented. We have to find our voice in prayer and become very specific, developing a targeted prayer strategy.

We each deal with our good inclination and our evil inclination

The difficulty with prayer, is that prayer makes you feel vulnerable, even in the privacy of your own self. Prayer is self examination and self examination is very uncomfortable. What will our prayers reveal about our own character and nature?

Initially, we may begin by bringing many outside concerns before the throne, but in the end, we wind up seeing inwardly. It is the inward man or woman…. our inward soul that we come to face.

We face our own souls and we face our own hearts, even in our prayers for others.

Judging oneself is an inescapable process of prayer.

Before arriving at the heart of prayer, we have to navigate pass our flesh, our pride, our idle thoughts and vain imaginations. In the beginning, all of this may feel like a spiritual obstacle course of sorts. If that is the case for you, I encourage you to press in. You are on the right course.

Pressing in means, that we have to find the strength to fight the distractions that bombard our mind. We have to wake up, and deal with our inner most thoughts and emotions that attempt to derail our soul from advancing and elevating toward GOD.

Keep this thought in mind when you struggle to stay in prayer longer than your usual 10 or 15 minutes?… longer than your usual 60 minutes?….. longer than your usual 2-3 hours?

What revelation will I discover if I press further in to prayer? What will I prevent myself from knowing if I tap out too soon?

The Full Measure and Stature of Christ Jesus

Prayer opens our hearts to see into our own image and likeness. I have heard many people give reasons why this level of examination is sufficient for them. But, to be IN CHRIST, our goal is to attain toward the image and likeness of GOD.

Many times we hear each other say, we want to get into a higher place in GOD… or we want to achieve that next level in GOD. It can be found in pressing pass that place of normalcy in prayer. In many ways, we can come to set our own individualized customs and traditions and limitations in prayer.

The daily rewards of breaking the boundaries, are awareness and sensitivity to the limitations of our own character and nature, and the desire to put on the character and nature of GOD.

… In this series of teachings on prayer, my goal is to communicate and demonstrate through scripture, that the most critical aspect of our prayer life is the time that we spend in solitude before GOD in prayer.

  • Not praying on the prayer line.
  • Not praying with the friend who called us for prayer.
  • Not praying with the prayer team.
    • THESE ARE SECONDARY TO OUR NEED FOR PERSONAL DEVOTIONAL TIME

This Next Level is a assessment of your personal, devotional, consecrated, dedicated, uninterrupted, I Will NOT allow anything to interfere with it…Prayer Time.

Consider this: For anyone that has traveled on an airplane, the safety instructions always caution you that in the event of a crisis, when oxygen bags are released, you place the oxygen on yourself first…then you assist the child or the person next to you that requires assistance.

We have to protect our own prayer life first before we can help anyone with theirs. We have to become prayer, before we can pray for others fervently and effectively.

Yes, we can get by without it. Of course we can. And yes, GOD is faithful even when we are not faithful in prayer.

But that’s a lower level that will not get you to the next level you are seeking, if you are really seeking it.

You have to be like David and become prayer!

That character and nature of GOD that we are striving for… comes with prayer. Prayer increases spiritual insight, discernment, revelation, healing anointing, and every gifting of GOD.

Storms are everywhere on the horizon, no matter where you look. Politically, environmentally, socially, economically, biologically…

What do you want to be your area of expertise in the anointing? You choose.

I Am Prayer!

“Ani tephillah” (ah-knee tuh-fee-lah)

David’s enemies were relentless and powerful. He was feeling oppressed and hemmed in. Yet, before he went on recounting his dilemmas, he stopped abruptly and proclaimed….

Yet, David knew something that had not even been spoken of in scripture yet…

That He had access to “POWER ABOVE ALL THE POWER OF THE ENEMY” and he proclaimed!

I am Prayer!

It’s like he stopped for a moment and remembered who he was, really!

He had a, “Don’t make me lay down here on the floor all night and pray!, ’cause I will do it!… kind of moment.

“I WILL REINVENT THIS ENTIRE SITUATION THROUGH PRAYER!”

“TAKE THIS MEMO, WRITE THIS DOWN AND POST IT IN EVERY PRINCIPALITY AND POWER, REGION, THRONE, DIMENSION, AND DOMINION…” KIND OF PRAYER!

“I WILL REACH BACK IN THE PAST AND MAKE EVERY CROOKED PLACE STRAIGHT, BY THE POWER OF GOD… KIND OF PRAYER!”

THE..NEITHER RAIN NOR DEW SHALL FALL, EXCEPT BY MY WORD…KIND OF PRAYER!

THE “IT’S ALREADY BEEN DONE…” KIND OF PRAYER!

THE..”IF I BE A WOMAN OF GOD, THEN ABC… XYZ SHALL OCCUR…” KIND OF PRAYER!

THE “IF I BE A MAN OF GOD, THEN ABC… XYZ SHALL OCCUR…” KIND OF PRAYER!

THE “RELEASE THE RAIN…”, KIND OF PRAYER!

THE “GOD WILL COME FOR MY WORD TO PERFORM IT”…KIND OF PRAYER!

THE “I COULD CARE LESS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE…” KIND OF PRAYER!

THE “I FORBID IT, IN THE NAME OF JESUS…KIND OF PRAYER!

THE “I WILL PRAY THE DEVIL BACK DOWN IN TO THE PIT OF HELL…” KIND OF PRAYER

IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.

There is NOTHING that You Can Not Handle in Prayer!
