Releasing the Power of God Through Our Lives -Releasing the Miraculous Pt 3
“How To Pray For Miracles”
‘In the final unfolding days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.
In those days I will pour out my Spirit on those who are serving me, men and women, old and young and they will declare the word of the Lord. And I will cause wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below-… And everyone who receives their message will be saved.’
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

We move from
God Needs you (2016)

Our focus for 2017 :
Releasing the power of God through your life
We are entering a Prophetic Doorway
A Prophetic Doorway is a time where the Lord releases special grace and favor to provide for breakthrough and breakout Spiritually and physically.
(This can be for businesses, finances, health, and importantly for Ministry)
We are entering a season where God wants to raise up the Church (you) to
release the Kingdom of God (miraculous) in and through their (your) lives.
And the Lord confirmed their message of his grace by enabling them to do miraculous signs and wonders.
In order to believe God -> Through you
You have to believe God -> To You
3 Keys to to ensure Breakthrough this year

We looked at
Why Are Miracles Important In Our Life
They reveal the Lord’s power
Show us His ability
Ps 8:1O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.
Rev 19:6 “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Dan 7:14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.
Ps 77:14 You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.
Luke 1: 37 For nothing is impossible with God.”
Reveal our Position
John 15:15-17 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit-fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, 2 and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
“Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation…. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;….they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
Reveal we are not limited to ourselves
God allows us to this point (inadequate)
Draws us to Him
Man’s extremities are God’s opportunities
‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.
Phil 4:13 can do everything through him who gives me strength.
2 Cor 12:10 I delight in weaknesses…. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
James 4:8 Come near to God and he will come near to you.
Causes Faith to be Released
Matt 21:22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
Mark 10:27 With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
John 14:11-13 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name
It’s never over
With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.
11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Christ in you, the hope of glory (provision).
A weapon to destroy the enemy
Sometimes enemy so entrenched
Matt 9:33 And when the demon was driven out, the man who had been mute spoke. The crowd was amazed and said, “Nothing like this has ever been seen
1 John 3:8 The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work
Matt 17:19-20 Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
1 Peter 5:8-9
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour Resist him, standing firm in the faith,
James 4:7 Submit yourself to the Lord, resist the devil and he will flee from you
Reveals God’s love
Ps 34:10 but those who seek (need) the LORD lack no good thing.
Matt 7:11 how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts (miracles) to those who ask him!
Luke 11:13 If you then, though you are sinful, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!“
John 3:16″For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
How To Pray For Miracles
(for you and through you)
Take your position in Christ
Who God says you are
Rom 8: 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs — heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ
Rev 5:10 And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.”
Colossians 2:10 and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority
Eph 2:6-10 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, … 10 For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Neutralize the hindrances of the enemy
Setting the captive free
Matthew 10:1 He called his disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness
Luke 10:19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
Eph 1:19-21 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion
Confess the Word of God
22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name
With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
Bring the need to the Lord
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests (need) be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
If any of you lacks wisdom (needs) , he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him
to you and through you”
Confess confidence in your prayer
1 John 5:14-15
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us . And if we know that he hears us — whatever we ask — we know that we have what we asked of him.
Press through in faith and prayer
Even though you make mistakes, you know how to give good things to your children. How much more your heavenly Father will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!“
Give the Holy Spirit freedom to lead
Acts 1:8 You shall receive power to be…
- To Witness
- to Minister
- to Heal
- to Counsel
- to release My Kingdom
Continual prayer builds our faith
Persistent faith reaches it’s goal
Realized goals increases confidence in your ministry
