Prophetic Praying of the Scriptures in Season
April 14, 2018      |     By: Sam McVay, Jr.      |      Category: Sermons

Like Paul did with the Ephesians, Sam encourages us to pray on all occasions with all kind of prayers. Praying the scriptures in season builds tremendous faith and releases power for answered prayer.

Daniel 9:1-3
1 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, by descent a Mede, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans 
2 in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, perceived in the books the number of years that, according to the word of the Lord to Jeremiah the prophet, must pass before the end of the desolations of Jerusalem, namely, seventy years.
3 Then I turned my face to the Lord God, seeking him by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting and sackcloth and ashes.

Ezra 1:1
1 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom...

Ezra 1:5
5 Then rose up the heads of the fathers' houses of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and the Levites, everyone whose spirit God had stirred to go up to rebuild the house of the Lord that is in Jerusalem

Daniel, sensitive to the prophetic season, took the word of God spoken though Jeremiah and prayed it which ignited the stirring of a pagan king and God’s people for a movement of restoration.

Power is released in our lives, families, cities, and the earth when we pray the scriptures in prophetic season.

Nehemiah did this when he prayed his burden through the word of God which engaged a mighty restoration movement among God’s people.

Nehemiah 1:8-9
8 Remember the word that you commanded your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the peoples,
9 but if you return to me and keep my commandments and do them, though your outcasts are in the uttermost parts of heaven, from there I will gather them and bring them to the place that I have chosen, to make my name dwell there.’  

The church in Acts did this when it applied the words found in Psalms 2 in a strategic season which led to building, "shaking gospel advance."

Acts 4:23-31
23 When they were released, they went to their friends and reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them.
24 And when they heard it, they lifted their voices together to God and said, “Sovereign Lord, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them, 
25 who through the mouth of our father David, your servant, said by the Holy Spirit, “‘Why did the Gentiles rage, and the peoples plot in vain?
26 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers were gathered together, against the Lord and against his Anointed’
27 for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel,
28 to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place. 
29 And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness,
30 while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” 
31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.

Paul will encourage the Ephesians saints to pray on all occasions with all kind of prayers. Just after telling them to take up the word of God as a weapon.

Ephesians 6:17-18
17 …and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,
18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,

Praying the scriptures in season builds tremendous faith and releases power for answered prayer.
