Decree As You Pray


Decree a Thing and it Shall Be Established
 
As Pastor Allan began his message, he reminded the congregation that on Wednesday mornings a group has been meeting at the Oroville Dam to pray over our city and the surrounding areas.

Pastor stated to allow God to show you how to pray over your city, your families and your daily work.  Then declare in your prayer what God is showing you.

Job 22:28 You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established for you: and the light shall shine upon your ways.

In church this morning enjoy the music, but enter into His presence, then go as soldiers taking God’s presence with you out into your world.

Before Jesus came, someone had to prepare the way.  We pray to clear the way for revival.  Not because we are special, but corporate united prayers are powerful.

Repentance is the bottom line.  Toss aside "religious" thoughts, and open your heart to Jesus and his forgiveness.  You may be going against what you have been taught in a Traditional Church or New Age teaching.  This is frightening to some because entering into God’s very presence is new and scary.  God is on the move and our responsibility is to follow the direction of the Holy Spirit. 

Oroville is getting National attention.  Our city has been awarded free Fire Works.  Let the Fire of God begin here in our city and spread out to surrounding areas.

What does your neighbor see when they look at you and your life style?  We are to be separate and set apart from the world.  Allow Jesus to be seen IN you.

Remember the first time you invited Jesus into your life and the joy, you experienced.  Each day, open the door of your heart to daily experience the presence of Jesus afresh.

Learn to walk in the Spirit and we shall see miracles.  Do not be afraid, but step out boldly in His name.  God desires to use you as you listen and obey His voice.

Job 22:21 "Now acquaint yourself with Him, and be at peace; Thereby good will come to you. 22 Receive, please, instruction from His mouth, And lay up His words in your heart. 23 If you return to the Almighty, you will be built up; You will remove iniquity far from your tents. 24 Then you will lay your gold in the dust, And the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brooks. 25 Yes, the Almighty will be your gold And your precious silver; 26 For then you will have your delight in the Almighty, And lift up your face to God. 27 You will make your prayer to Him, He will hear you,  And you will pay your vows.

Our city was built upon the Gold rush, but the gold ran out and left poverty and a waste land.  Let the Almighty God be your gold, silver and precious jewels. 

Repentance is needed. We as believers need to ask God to examine our hearts and stop doing the things he shows us that are not pleasing to Him.  It is time to quit fighting the Holy Spirit and make the changes in your life He is revealing.

Joshua was speaking to the Children of Israel and said,  “Choose this day whom you will serve, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Daniel purposed in his heart that he would NOT defile himself and he was honored by the king.

Have a thirst for righteousness and allow it to satisfy you as a drink of cool water.  Pull the plug of distraction and do what ever it takes, to walk with God.  Let God’s Word change you.

Pastor Allan prayed, "Lord I declare and decree today that you might use your people to make a difference as they pray and that you will bring repentance to our families, our neighbors and to our city.  Then may your light of blessing shine upon our land."

  1. AMEN! Hello Hazel, been a little while. How are you?
    I did enjoy the Pastor's sermon especially with "Let Others See Jesus In Me"
    I also tell my kids this many times. Christianity is not about us but others. Our lives should be living examples.
    God Bless Hazel

  2. Very powerful, Hazel. I agree with everything you said and are doing. Last year a bunch of us met in the town park and decreed over our city and valley. I love those prayer meetings.

    Yesterday I received an urgent call to pray from a girl that once lived with us when she was a teen. We shared our faith (she was in a cult) later connected on FB and I could see she's a Christian now. Her health has always been bad, but her body started to shut down yesterday. I private messaged her, praying over her and decreeing every cell, tissue, etc to line up with God's word. She responded so beautifully thanking us for leading her to Jesus years ago and I cried. I call Tom to read it and he cried too. And we prayed again in faith...believing!

    Love,
    Mary

  3. Well Done Pastor Allan! Now that I have visited your church, Mom, I can just hear his voice and urgency. Thank YOU for summarizing and sharing with all who couldn't be there! There IS a definable a wake-up call going out. I can feel it here in the Central Valley!
