Prayers Down, Not Just Up

Pull down your answer from Heaven. Be specific. Say what it will look and taste like....

 "Ok Lord, We are ready now. Not tomorrow. We need some Kingdom headlines for us, love ones, friends & our enemies need some goodnews too."

I feel this is a time (season) to pull down prayers from heaven and not to just to put (push) them up. Many psalms (& other scripture) are prime instructions and examples to us regarding this matter. We not only need to store up treasures in heaven, but we at times need to make withdrawals. Father God makes a habit of looking twice, third times and even twentieth times at application, supplications and / or a request for kingdom withdrawals (I just know He rewrites loans – bad debt that should never have been taken in the 1st place).  I believe (I know) we will get more if we ask more.  I am reminded of a man who had been out of the selling business for awhile (retired) that I came upon and in the course of sharing our lives I told him that I was in sales as he once was. After listening to me he said it is ok to ask for the business now - always be closing. Sometimes you can even frame the response in your own words and it will sound to the other (the one with the money) person as though they thought of it themselves. We need heaven pulled down now! - in our home's, in our lives, at our work, on our roads, in our children (children we want to have too), for our parents, for our husband's, for our wife's, for our neighbors, for our friends, schools, strangers, enemies - "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done as it is in Heaven...". Yes as it is in heaven.  No money left on the table, no sickness, no salvation, no kiss, no hug, no smile, no love left on the table, no grievance, no uncollected debt, no old wound, etc.. Today if you hear the word of the Lord, do not harden your heart. Now is the acceptable time. Call up on the Lord while he can be found. If you can't find him get a new pair of glasses or take that pair off and throw them away. Blind with bad glasses is double blind. The eyes of our heart need only one prescription.

 

Ok Lord we are going to the well (the bank, the place that all our resources are tied up in), to you for all our springs (fresh and living water) are in you. We were birthed in this well. Yes this one (those in your home and family) and others (friends, neighbors, co-workers & enemy, etc.) the ones holding on (or need to) to every word that proceeds from your table. We are leaning hard with our ear to the wind for your word on the wind of your dawn. Give us – then a new dawn song to sing. We weep at night for these to have the marrow of their life restored. Lord deal sickness (blindness, weakness, job loss, debt, poverty, or anything that is now that won’t be hanging out on your streets in Zion) a death blow. There is enough bad news in our time, write a new headline on their behalf – “Sickness is gone! Kingdom Practices has claimed another victory”. Make it bold, make it brash, and make grab hearts and minds caught in the pit (*debt) of this age. Surprise us with this morning edition. Thank you Father for not only calling us to Zion but you actually cause us to live there, too. Thank you that our home and place of rest is not rented or mortgaged. Thank you that our debt has been paid and our victory is not tied to a broker or cannot be sold out from under us.

 

Lord we want <my friend, my husband, father, mother, sister, co-worker, worst and best enemy,etc.), this one (or even me) and others healed from head to toe. Yes the toe too.  Some are just looking to have their 1st baby, so Father while you are at it conceives a plan and a promise to bring forth a child of promise. We need some Sarah’s to bring forth a son of promise, Elizabeth’s to birth some prophets and Hannah’s for sons and daughters to serve at your feet, in this headline too. We want birth announcement on the heels of this victory, so we can plants some prophets for this age to come who will say “God is alive and still on his throne – Zion’s home town king who is might to save and heal. See another generation born on the eve of signs and wonders.”

Psalm 87 (The Message)

He founded Zion on the Holy Mountain— and oh, how God loves his home! Loves it far better than all the homes of Jacob put together! God's hometown—oh! Everyone there is talking about you! (ver. 1-3)

 

I name them off, those among whom I'm famous: Egypt and Babylon, also Philistia, even Tyre, along with Cush. Word's getting around; they point them out: "This one was born again here!" (ver. 4)

 

The word's getting out on Zion:  "Men and women, right and left, get born again in her!" (ver. 5

 

God registers their names in his book: "This one, this one, and this one— born again, right here." (ver. 6

 

Singers and dancers give credit to Zion: "All my springs are in you!" (ver. 7)

 

 

Psalm 90 (The Message)

God, it seems you've been our home forever; long before the mountains were born, Long before you brought earth itself to birth, from "once upon a time" to "kingdom come"—you are God. (ver. 1-2)

 

So don't return us to mud, saying, "Back to where you came from!"  Patience! You've got all the time in the world—whether a thousand years or a day, it's all the same to you. Are we no more to you than a wispy dream, no more than a blade of grass that springs up gloriously with the rising sun and is cut down without a second thought? Your anger is far and away too much for us; we're at the end of our rope. You keep track of all our sins; every misdeed since we were children is entered in your books. All we can remember is that frown on your face. Is that all we're ever going to get? We live for seventy years or so (with luck we might make it to eighty), And what do we have to show for it?  Trouble. Toil and trouble and a marker in the graveyard. Who can make sense of such rage, such anger against the very ones who fear you? (3-11)

 

Oh! Teach us to live well! Teach us to live wisely and well! Come back, God—how long do we have to wait?— And treat your servants with kindness for a change. Surprise us with love at daybreak; then we'll skip and dance all the day long. Make up for the bad times with some good times; we've seen enough evil to last a lifetime. Let your servants see what you're best at— the ways you rule and bless your children. And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us, confirming the work that we do. Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do! (ver. 12-17)
