The Church Will Be A House of Prayer
by Margaret (Peggy) Kannaday (Henderson)
The Church "Will" Become A House of Prayer
Jesus Christ turned the tables over in His Father's House, and He said that His House would no longer be a den of thieves but a house of prayer.
Instead, many churches have become businesses with tax exemption.
Many countries are suffering great injustices toward the helpless and the innocent,
The churches are thriving in these countries, but the people are in great peril and persecution.
The churches are not praying in most cases or these countries would become righteous, and the suffering of the poor and innocent would be stopped.
The church as a whole is not using its awesome power of prayer.
We have been given all authority over the enemy Satan and our own flesh, but we have to activate our power through believing prayer.
Each week, churches all over the world are given the perfect opportunity to pray together in one accord.
There would need to be several prayer leaders who have the burdens to pray, and then all would agree with the prayer leaders.
One will put one thousand to flight and 2 ten thousand. How powerful would that be each week?
What love, unity, victory and peace that would bring into the churches.
We read in Jeremiah 23 and Ezekiel 34 that God will raise up a church in the last days that the gates of hell will not be able to prevail against.
What will be a sign of this last day church?
The ministers in the glorious last day church will care for that one soul. They will be willing to leave the 99 and go out and find the one soul that is in trouble.
The last day pastor will be like our Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ, and he will be willing to lay down his life for one soul, just like Jesus Christ was willing to lay down His life for one soul.
How do we get from here to there? How do we get from a church that is carnal and like the Laodicean's church to the glorious last day church?
It is through prayer. The prayer of the righteous avails much.
Also, when you have many righteous praying together, daily and weekly; it will transform the whole world.
It will change the Government, the people, the businesses and the morals of all of the societies all over the world.
We must find leaders who will lead by example. Those who take on the role as servant, and those who will deny themselves, take up their crosses and follow the Lord Jesus Christ.
The church and the Body of Christ have all of the power in heaven and earth given to us by the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, the blood of the Lamb and the Word of God.
We pray, and we can move upward and onward to a position of 100% VICTORY.
Jesus Christ has already won for us everything that we, our churches, our families, our nations need for a life of abundance, righteousness and success.
All we have to do is appropriate the total provision through heartfelt prayer and fasting as needed.
Right now, there are very viable Christian men and women of integrity who would be good stewards in the highest positions in our countries.
However, they cannot do the job without our prayers, because our warfare is not on the human level, but it is in the invisible, supernatural realm. The most honest, nobel and Christian leaders needs our united prayer to protect them from the powers of darkness, deception and control.
We must pray that God's men and women will be raised up in each country. The men and women who will be good stewards of the authority that they have been given.
We must continue praying for them even after they have come into power, or they could be put in such a pressure cooker that they could cave in after many trials, attacks and temptations. The big guns are always targeting our leaders.
We all need to pray that almighty God will raise up the prayer warriors, the churches of prayer and the men and women of God who have the boldness and courage to stand strong in these evil last days.
If our current churches become Houses of Prayer; there will be hope for the world.
The anti-Christ system can be thwarted and all of the plans of Satan can be pushed back to Eden.
Satan has targeted the greatest and the best for destruction, but when the church prays; all of his evil deeds will be destroyed.
We need to pray that all of the evil deeds of darkness will be exposed and that Jesus Christ will destroy all of the works of Satan, as Jesus came and died to accomplish.
We need to have Godly men and women to be placed in the highest positions, but we also must understand that our battle is not with flesh and blood. We, the church are accountable to God for our leaders, as even when The Lord raises up godly leaders; it is our prayers that will keep peace, righteousness, law and order in the land.
Our battles are with the power, principalities, rulers of darkness and wickedness in high places. We can only combat these powers through united prayer.
Wake up churches, and take your places to become Houses of Prayer.
I know for sure, that if the churches in America do not start praying, praying, praying; we will not have any churches where we will be allowed to pray in freedom and liberty.
Righteousness is needed for the effective prayer, and the church-at-large also needs to repent so that The Lord can heal our lands.
There is so much sin in the camp that needs to be purged through solemn assembles which will pray, fast and repent. We need to purify our churches as recorded in 1 Cor. 5, by turning over the reprobate Christians to Satan so that they will repent before it is too late for them.
Then The Lord will be able to restore everything that the canker worm, Caterpillar and locust have eaten in our lives, our families, our churches and our lands.
The Lord wants so badly to reward and restore His beloved people, but because of our carnal and Laodicean behaviors; The Lord's hands are tied.
Our loving, but just God cannot reward rebellion and sin.
We hear many messages of prosperity and the blessings of God, but always remember that every blessing is provisional and conditional. The whole Word of God is Truth.
If my people...."humble themselves, pray, seek God's face and turn from our wicked ways, then He will hear from heaven, forgive our sins and heal our lands".
God's promises are based on our obedience, our devotion, our faith and our use of all that we have been given.
God rewards all that diligently seek Him. God's grace needs our response in obedience guided through our love for God.
We show and prove our love for God by our obedience to His commandments.
Do not be deceived. God is a God of grace and love, but He is also a God of justice and Truth.
My prayer for the church:
I pray that your people will turn to You with all of our hearts, and we will become the House of Prayer.
Each Christian is a living stone being formed to come together and build the last day glorious church.
Please make all of us into the people after Your own heart and a people that will please You, oh Lord.
Please raise up those with a spirit of Joshua, Caleb, Josiah, Jehu, and countless prayer warriors, and worshipers all over the world.
The world is about to get shaken and shaken and shaken and only what is founded on the rock of Jesus Christ will remain. Only what is of our God will remain.
We pray that we will all be counted worthy to escape what is coming on the earth and be able to stand before the Son of Man.
We thank You Lord with all of our hearts for Your wonderful goodness and mercy. We thank you Father for sending Your Son to die for even one of us sinners. We pray that You, Lord Jesus will receive all the honor and praise for your great and unspeakable sacrifice on the cross. We pray all these things in Your Name and by Your blood and according to The Word of God. Amen, amen and amen.
All those who have made The Lord their refuge, their fortress and their everything will be delivered. Those who endure to the end will be saved.
Those who work out their own salvation with fear and trembling will receive their reward.
This is not the time to go into apostasy as many churches, but this is the time to turn to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with all of our hearts.
May all the churches throughout the world move upward and onward and may we all become part of The glorious Houses of Prayer for all nations which will make up the end time Church. We ask everything in The Name of Jesus Christ, by The blood of The Lamb and according to The Word of God and all for Your glory Lord Jesus Christ. Amen, amen and amen.
