Prayers for the Church (9/4/2018)

Christ Church Stellarton

The Church should be good at discerning the times and seasons of God but it is not. It usually fails to recognize moves of the Holy Spirit until years after the Spirit has moved upon a group(s). The reason for this is that the Church’s spiritual eyes are blinded by its structure, hierarchy, and programs.

This happened with Azusa Street, the Jesus Movement, Toronto Blessing, Brownsville Revival, and countless other major moves of the Spirit throughout history.

Will it happen again?

For the last fifteen years or so, many American churches have watched committed believers walk out their doors and not look back. These churches have assumed most of the believers were back-slidden or a part of the “great falling away.”

But these churches are wrong in their assumptions because it has been the Lord who has led them out of their churches. He is preparing them for a new move of His Spirit, outside of the traditional church walls, and not under its repressive leadership.

You see, the Lord wants to take His place as the head of the Church and its Teacher.

What many American churches have seen so far as a trickle of departing believers will soon see it turn into a roaring gusher as the Lord empties the pews of believers who are called to be apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. These callings are not being trained or readied in these churches and the Lord needs them to be prepared for His end-time plans.

My prayer today:

Lord, I pray that You will build Your church so that the gates of Hell will not prevail against it and that You will proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to those who are bound. (Based on Matthew 16:18 and Isaiah 61:1)

Join me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for the American church.

  1. Good to have you back, Mr. Larry! And thank you for your prayers. :). I felt a check this time as I read and prayed in agreement with you. God may just be moving me in a different direction than He is you. And that is fine. Blessings and joy!

  2. Debbie,

    Not all prophetic words apply to every believer in churches. That’s a part of the learning process for all of us to understand. For instance, over the years, I’ve seen God tell people to leave churches while He is telling others to attend. He’s the Boss. Thanks. God bless you.

  3. Yes, thank you for clarifying that! :).
