THE PRAYER JOTTER: A WORD OF WISDOM FOR MINISTERS AND SAINTS

This is a transcription of one of our prayer times when divinely inspired utterances were brought forth by the Spirit of God. This has been a pattern now since 2013 when Carolyn and I began praying and traveling together more frequently. The purpose of this special anointing and operation of the Holy Spirit is to bring forth provision of the wisdom of God for the body of Christ. I believe it would fall under the heading of the revelation gifts of the Holy Spirit with prophecy—a spirit of seeing and knowing. 

Here now is one sample of this operation:

Just like in a natural family the mothers and fathers learn what their children respond to and the children learn what the parents respond to because they learn their love language in a healthy family.

And they’re always reaching to meet (fulfill) that love language because they love the response that they receive.

So it is in His body – I see it.

Every believer and every son and daughter of God has a love gift that they respond to and it’s important to find it and recognize the gift that they respond to and then they will respond to Me.

For some like words of affirmation and some like pretty things and pretty gifts like diamond rings (laughter)…

For some it’s just an act of kindness, an act of service, a helping hand…

A loving shepherd learns the love language of every sheep and every lamb.

And this will be a key, not just to open up individual hearts but congregations of people, too.

For you see, I am the author and the finisher of their faith and I am the one who gives utterance and moves through you in gifts that releases them to receive from Me.

So we pray that now Father…

I see where many hearts have been hardened and have sifted themselves and even resisted because they’re not receiving that love language.

There’s been nothing to cause their hearts to respond.

We pray wisdom now in your ministers to release that love language on your body that would turn them from the things of this world and cause them to look intently and strongly on Jesus again.

We understand Father…

That’s why the 5 fold ministry gifts are so imperative and to be used in the body of Christ because they all carry something different and they move in the different gifts, and some are stronger than others in things.

So right now we agree as touching that in prayer that there would be a release of the 5 fold ministry gifts into your body worldwide.

Your body does not deserve to be hungry and lacking in the equipping they need to do the work of the ministry and respond to you.

Your body is diverse – one gift can’t reach everyone…

And that’s the reason many leave their churches because they only hear the one gift and they get tired of the one voice always talking to them.

Thank you Lord for your diversity and your manifold wisdom.

Acts 16 – And the Lord opened the heart of Lydia so that she heeded the things spoken by Paul.

You are the one who opens hearts and knows what each heart needs and what each heart connects to.

Your Holy Spirit is the equalizer.

He’s the one that does it and that’s why we must point people to Him, and not to us.

Too many are trying to get people to follow them, but they need to teach them to follow Him.

And then there’s grace, for the grace is in Him, and it’s released when you point people to Him.

Did He not say when He’s lifted up He would draw all men unto Him.

You’ve made it so simple that we’ve missed it.

We must be like John the Baptist who said he must decrease so Christ could increase – he got out of the way so You could be seen and heard and followed.

Oh, may we as your ministers learn to move out of the way!

Yes, lead them in a way we’re called to lead but lead them to You…

After all, that is the ministry of the Holy Spirit who said that He would not even speak of Himself, but whatsoever He would (pause and laughter)… but whatsoever He would hear that He would speak.

He doesn’t even speak of Himself and He’s the Holy Spirit.

He speaks only the Father’s will, he speaks the mind of Jesus Christ, but not of Himself.

Oh, this is a revelation that we need.

This is important!

This is the meekness of the Lord, even as Paul came in the meekness of Christ, not to point others to himself but to the Lord.

We’re nothing without Him, but we have God’s heart by the Holy Spirit.

Understand this, get this … for except the Holy Spirit reveal it to you, you will not know it (1 Cor 2).

The Holy Spirit reveals the deep things of God’s heart.

So we draw on those deep things this morning…

For as we go our way and minister throughout the days and this year that we would be keen to remember that it’s the Holy Spirit that brings up the heart of God and that speaks the need of that love language to your people, and even to those outside of Christ.

For there are some now that are ready to come into His kingdom and to believe.

For them we pray, those outside…

Jesus always knew what to say (tears) – He knew how to minister to the harlot, He knew how to minister to the blind man. He knew how to love the broken-hearted mother who just lost her son.

Power – with that revelation comes power; with those keys comes power for those outside.

That waitress must have needed something yesterday at that restaurant, and we pray for her now that she would not rest until she comes to Jesus Christ as her Savior and Lord.

We spoke Your name to her, Lord and may Your name resonate in her heart and mind.

May she never forget the words, “He changed my life”, but may those words come back to her again and again.

And may that gift we left her speak of the love of the Father…

As I said, this operation has manifested frequently in our prayer times since 2013. It is most prolific through Carolyn’s vessel. We have well over 500 documented pages of these utterances. The file is called, The Prayer Jotter, and we hope to make a unique book or journal from these some day soon. But for now we will just be blogging some of them. I hope this one was a blessing to you.

Thank you, and may God’s richest and best be yours.
