Prayer & Praise!

Prayer is your key to breakthrough! Prayer and meditation connects you with the life of Heaven. Prayer opens the heavens over peoples, organizations, cities and nations. Prayer gets God directly involved with you and your affairs. Prayer is a vital key to intimacy with God. Prayer directs your focus toward achieving the goals God has for you. Prayer doesn’t only change things, prayer changes you! In the battle, Jehoshaphat sent out the praise team first!

And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who could sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever.” 2 Chronicles 20:21

Judah is the “praise” tribe. If you want more victory, send Judah first!

Your praise will bind and execute vengeance upon God’s enemies! Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment. Psalm 149:6-9.

Praise kills pride! When you acknowledge the Lord and give Him glory for everything that He blessed you with, you cannot be proud, because He is the One who blessed you with it all!

Praise your way into God’s presence, and He will bless you! When your praise goes up, God’s blessings come down! Hallelujah!

Prophetic Keys! Part II. By Dr. Thomas Manton IV

Prophetic Keys! Part I

God will speak to us mostly on His terms, not on ours!  It is often our commitment level to God and His purposes that determine how deeply and profoundly we hear. Ask the Lord, “What do You want to say to me, and what do You want me to do?” Allow no one to limit you. Listen to God!

The spoken prophetic word causes new things to go into motion! A protective barrier comes over your life from God’s spoken words. You also must war over the prophetic words spoken into your life by the prophet, because you have an enemy!

“The voice of the Lord is powerful; The voice of the Lord is full of majesty” Psalm 29: 4.

Adam heard the voice of the Lord in the Garden of Eden. “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself” Genesis 3:10.

Listening to and fully obeying the voice of the Lord will bring you into promotion! “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth” Deuteronomy 28:1.

Repeat God’s words and you are prophesying! “For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” Revelation 19:10b.

When God has given you a Word, stay with it and it will eventually pay off.  If He hasn’t spoken, just forget it any way! It’s a total waste of time embarking upon a plan God never gave you! When God has given you a Word, stay with it and it will eventually pay off.  If He hasn’t spoken, just forget it any way! It’s a total waste of time embarking upon a plan God never gave you!

Prophecy propels you into purpose! Prophecy decrees blessings! ***Amen!

Prophecy Keys; Part I. By Dr. Thomas Manton IV

“Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken! Who can but prophesy?” Amos 3:7-8.

Many say, the Lord is always in control of everything. Then we must ask, “What about Idi Amin, the Rwanda genocide, the Aids plague—Are these all from God?” No! The enemy has been allowed to operate by the sin and free will of man! The Church must rise up in power!

Prophecy is God thinking out loud! Prophecy is God telling you what is on His Mind. Prophecy is God telling you what is possible for you.

When God speaks, He is speaking to the “future” you as well as the “present” you.  God speaks to your potential more than He speaks to your situation. (While Abram was ‘wandering’ around, God changed his name to Abraham; which means ‘father of many nations.’ He also told him; “Everything you can see is already yours!”)

There can be transferences and impartations of anointings in meetings draped with a heavy prophetic atmosphere. You don’t always need to receive a personal prophetic word. Just get in His Presence!

You can often spend hours trying to hear from God, and then, when you least expect it, He speaks!
