We have two scheduled phone calls for corporate prayer weekly.
Wednesday at 8 AM CST and Sunday at 3 PM CST. And at noon on Wednesdays we have a livestream prayer meeting from Prayer Mountain in the Ozarks.
From time to time (its happened only twice) we have the ability to call a special prayer meeting. We call it an emergency prayer call. Though by no means do we have the intent that the sky is falling and we have to pray.
It’s just that it is a special prayer meeting we call other than our scheduled times.
This past Sunday we contacted those who have signed up for the Emergency Prayer Call, and asked them to join Sunday afternoon for Special prayer.
Sunday, January 10, 3 PM Special Prayer Meeting
I sensed there was a specific Scripture we should start with. And the impression I had was to find the haftara reading for this week.
Practicing Jews read through the Torah, the first five books of the Bible, in a year beginning with Rosh HaShannah. Every Sabbath they read the appointed Torah portion called the parasha. Coupled with the Torah reading they read an appointed Scripture from the Prophets called the haftara. These are appointed from ancient times. Jonathan Cahn refers to the haftara readings often in his book The Oracle. He purports, and many agree, that they are often prophetic.
Could it be possible that some of these appointed words were appointed not only to be spoken on those days but of and to those days…to speak of events that would take place in modern times?
(The Oracle, Jonathan Cahn, page 43)
I knew I’d found our Scripture when I saw the following in the haftara for the week’s Sabbath reading:
Isaiah 28:11 The Jerusalem Bible, Karen Publishers
With stammering lips and another tongue shall one speak to this people…This is the rest; cause the weary to rest and this is the refreshing….
The Lord made me to know He was going to do three supernatural things with the tongues that would be prayed during the call. He would use their tongues:
- To pray the mysteries of God (1 Cor. 14:2).
- To give His body, His army, a rest and refreshing (Is. 28:11).
- To speak to us (Is. 28:11).
About ten weeks or so ago the Lord told Max, our former Muslim friend, to start listening to what is prayed when I and others pray in tongues. Since that time he has been hearing words in his mother tongue, Arabic. (See Acts 2.)
Sunday, as we prayed, Max heard as I spoke in tongues:
Whom shall I fear
With strength my soul
With men this is impossible. (2 times)
The King is moving. (2 times)
Love and Sound Mind
Words of My Mouth
Jump (as in jump up and down) (5 times)
Satan defeated (4 times)
We will not have strife. (4 times)
Let Us MOVE
More, More, More of you.
My comments on some words in this word from the Lord.
The first two lines refer to the first lines of Psalm 27.
Love and Sound Mind receive Power refers to the Holy Spirit. (2 Timothy 1:7).
Jump, if you’ve heard Chip’s teaching is in the definition of the word Rejoicing.
It also refers, and I won’t go into it here, to what the Lord told Joshua and the IDF soldiers say and do at the Wall when they are sworn in.
In every word of the Lord we have heard in the past ten weeks or so as our tongues have been heard in Arabic always point us to TRUST IN GOD, without fear.
I might add here that my daughter, Shelli, some weeks ago was awakened at 4 am. Her Bible fell open to First Kings Chapter One and the account of Adonijah. We later discovered that was the haftara reading for that week.
God is Speaking to You
And you can hear Him. Stay in the Word. Pray in Tongues and do what He tells you. He leads His children. (Romans 8:14.) And they know His voice (John 10:4, 5.)
Pray According to this Scripture
Amplified Psalm 94
19 In the multitude of my [anxious] thoughts within me, Your comforts cheer and delight my soul!
20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with You—they who frame and hide their unrighteous doings under [the sacred name of] law?
21 They band themselves together against the life of the [consistently] righteous and condemn the innocent to death.
22 But the Lord has become my High Tower and Defense, and my God the Rock of my refuge.
23 And He will turn back upon them their own iniquity and will wipe them out by means of their own wickedness; the Lord our God will wipe them out.
ESV Psalm 94
19 When the cares of my heart are many,
your consolations cheer my soul.
20 Can wicked rulers be allied with you,
those who frame injustice by statute?
21 They band together against the life of the righteous
and condemn the innocent to death.
22 But the LORD has become my stronghold,
and my God the rock of my refuge.
23 and wipe them out for their wickedness;
the LORD our God will wipe them out.
P.S. We had 1000 on the call. All 50 states and Washington D.C.
5 other countries. In fact the call maxed at capacity and some people could not get on line. We are fixing this. Will keep you posted.
