Prayer on Behalf of the Body of Christ

This is June 30th Congress WBN. For the last four weeks we have been traversing the Plain of Confluence. We came up onto the Plain of Confluence over the mountain of Representation and we have been tracking forward, following the ways of the Lord, coming to the place of the Transactional moment.
It’s been a year. Our hearts have burned towards this moment. We have prayed towards it, we listened towards it, we tracked and followed towards it. We changed our lives. We changed our families. We listened to God.  And now we are here. This is the moment of transaction.

The entire Apostolic Team is gathered, together in one place. We are here and we are gathered before God with You. And I want to say that this is our greatest joy. Our single greatest joy, at this moment, beyond the fact that the presence of God, who has been with us for so long, is here, the greatest joy is that the saints are here, that you are here.  You are here from the Pacific. You are here from South America and from Mexico. You are here from across the continent of Africa. From India, from the Far East, from across Europe, from across all of the nations that God has put within Congress WBN. Our people are gathered as one community. For the first time in history, across the nations of the earth, one people, one mind, one spirit, one journey, one pursuit, one faith, one desire, calibrated by the spirit of God, in hearts from many nations all across the earth, perfected by God in a long journey over an entire year. Here we are gathered together.

I want us to take one moment just to think about that, and to let that flow through our hearts before we pray. I know you have been worshipping and I know that your leaders have prayed in the meetings all across the earth, as prayer like rolling thunder is moving across the earth.

Right now the heavens are open. The throne of God is on full alert. Angels are gazing down.  The whole Church of the Firstborn is attentive. The heavenly realms are absolutely open, because today momentous things will happen. Our faith will touch the throne of God. We know this because this is the constitution of our faith.  Our joy shall reach the heavens and the sacrifice that we will make before God will be pure and pristine and powerful and will be received by the hand of God.

We lift up our hearts unto God and we allow the reality of this moment to flow through every chamber of our being. And I want you to feel connected to every brother and every sister throughout the Congress. And we declare that in this moment, right here, right now, that there is no fragmentation, there are no differences, that our community is one, that no separation exists, that reality is different, that we are connected in one spirit and in one body all across the nations of the earth. And that our High Priest is standing still, looking down from the Holy Place. He is working with us and standing with us.
I want us to all lift our hands across the nations of the earth. Lift your hands in Nairobi, and lift your hands in Lagos. Let’s just thank God together. Let’s thank God together with your Apostolic Team.

Father, we thank You. Father we thank You for what You have done. We thank You for Your process. We give You praise. We exalt You God. We lift You up and we magnify You. 

Let your voices fill the halls where you are.  Let your voices flow up unto the heavens as we declare what a great and mighty God He is.
Father we bless Your name.  We bless Your name for You have been a good God. We exalt You and magnify You and lift You up and worship You for You are an amazing God.

We thank You for what You have done. We thank You for the journey of TFM. We thank You for the journey of Representation. We thank You for the mountains You gave us to climb. We thank You for the anointing and the resource of the Holy Spirit that brought us this way.

Oh, we give You praise. I give You praise, in the presence of my brother. I give You praise in the presence of my sister. I feel connected to the body of the Congress all across the nations of the earth and with one heart and with one voice, Father, we lift You up and we give You praise. We give You praise.  We give You praise.

You have been a God that has always been with us. From the very earliest days You came down. You spoke to us God. When we were ignorant, when we knew nothing, when there was none of us in the earth, Your glory came down all by Yourself. With Your thoughts within You, with Your purposes within You, with Your plans and Your architecture bound up inside of Yourself. When we were ignorant and less than nothing, God You came down.  You came down with maximum resource. You came down as a God to whom the beginning and the end are all the same. You came down and started us off in Your mercy.  You spoke to us at the level we could understand. It was tremendous and overwhelming and yet it was but a drop from the bucket. It was one thought from the vastness of Your mind.

It transformed our humanity. You took us by the hand and You began to speak of great and mighty things which our hearts had never yet heard of. You spoke to us of sacrifice. You spoke to us of obedience.  You spoke to us of the voice of God. You brought us into the truth that man could hear the voice of God. That human life can de dignified and powerful and honorable. You began to speak to us of love for the Body of Christ. You encouraged us to hear Your voice and You taught us how to respond.

Out of our ignorance God, You led us by the hand with patience and with faithfulness. And we look back today and we recognize the faithfulness of a mighty God. We learnt God, through coming close to Your power, that being next to Your power was a safe and a wonderful and nurturing place.  You transformed within our very spirit, our understanding of who You are. You did all those things out of Your mercy and out of Your grace. Our hearts are overflowing in thankfulness and in mercy and in love.

You widened our borders and You broke the boundaries.  You lifted our eyes and You began to speak of a great and wonderful thing. You spoke nations and globalness. You spoke oneness. You spoke of a community stretched out across the earth. Our hearts could scarce understand, or could scarce believe.  And at every point and at every juncture You sent Your word, faithfully. You sent Your word in the context of our understanding.

You stretched us, but never beyond our capacity to bear. You pressed us, but never beyond our capacity to sustain. You tested us, but never beyond our capacity to be broken.  You chastened us and You disciplined us and You spoke to us and You nurtured us and you taught us how to exist and how to be. You brought us from singularity into a company. You brought the spirit of prayer out of our hearts. You brought them by their one and by their twos. And in that You built a company, an army in Your sight. A mighty congregation of great renown. A mighty company of obedience. It was in Your heart from since the beginning. And now God we look back at the end of a great journey. And we can see the architecture and the wisdom and the greatness of an everlasting and almighty God.

Father, You called us into a company and into a network.  You said “Build me a network! Connect yourselves together! Break the structures around you! Break the hegemons that surround you and limit you!” And we moved in obedience. And everywhere we moved, You sent Your Spirit out before us as a mighty force. You smashed the things of the enemy, You smote him on his cheekbone, and no matter that the enemy had designs against us, You put Your hand upon us and You protected us God. When we did not even know how to fight, You went before us. You spread Your canopy. You lifted up Your mighty hand and You brought us through.

You told us “Build for Me!” when we did not know how to build. And then You said “I will give You skills. I will give You competence. I will teach You of my ways”. And point by point God, from nothingness unto something-ness, You taught us to build and to construct for You. You came into our hearts and You taught our hearts how to be like Christ.

You connected our Apostolic Team together. You brought them one by one, led by Your mighty hand. You brought us together God and You chastened us until we were formed by fire into a team of renown, into a team that loves each other and loves God. You did it because You gazed upon Your saints. You did all of that because You prepared a place for Your people.  You put Your hand upon us God because You looked into the hearts of our ordinary believers in Congo, our believers in Switzerland, our people spread across the South Pacific and You declared to them “I will make You into a house. I will bring You into a place of honor and renown. I will show You my wisdom and show You myself.”

And so You put Your mighty hand upon Your team of apostles and You made us into how You wanted us to be.  You pruned us and You separated us and You brought us together and You connected us and You taught us how to think. You taught us how to pray. You taught us how to love. You taught us how to worship.  You taught us how to follow You. You taught us how to be servants and how to glorify the power of God.

You stretched Your hands into my heart and You said “I want to build a company to surround You.” You brought men from everywhere. You reached into the structures of Babylon. You brought out our Executive Attachés. You put Your hand upon them and crushed them into nothingness and then You formed them by Your own hand into men of renown, into disciples of power. You built that God because of Your saints, because You reached towards Your people, because from the beginning of Your ways with men upon the earth Your divine heart has always stretched itself towards Your people, towards the Body, towards the Church and towards the Body of Christ.

Father, remember back in the early days when You said, “Pray this way. This is how You pray. Pray for the Body of Christ.” When we did not even understand and we did not even know. You embedded that into the cries of our heart. You put that like a bass line into that which we cried out before You.  It was always in the bowels of the Holy Spirit – “Remember the Body of Christ! Remember the Body of Christ! Remember the people for whom I died!”

And I know Your journey God. You took us way, way, way out. Further than we ever thought we could be. You traversed us deep into the realms of the spirit. You brought us into Your law and You showed us Yourself. And all along the way, the journey was curving back to the point of beginnings. It was a journey to the Cross. It was a journey to Your sacrifice, it was a journey into Your own heart. And we did not even know.

But we thank You for faithfulness. We thank You that You gave us obedience. We thank You that You prevented us from straying off the pathway, that You kept us in discipline by Your own mighty hand. Today as a people we thank You for chastening us. We thank You for breaking us. We thank You for putting boundaries upon us. We thank You for Your law. We thank You for Your principles. We thank You that You never let us go. You brought us back God. You birthed our Congress in 2004. You told us now is the time to move. This is the day when I will build You. You structured us and You built us and we followed You. God, our journey has been from ignorance into glory. Our journey has been from ignorance into wisdom. Our journey has been after God, and in coming after You we have seen You.

Now God You brought us into Tracking Final Maturity. You taught us about maturity. You commanded us to become mature. We bowed our heads and we followed You. Our heads of households humbled themselves under the power of the Hebronite anointing. Our women rose up in beauty and in glory and in honor. Our families gathered around Your truth and around Your revelation. Our hearts were broken and humbled as You tore away our hegemons.  As You defined our new starting points, as You confirmed us unto Your death and broke the power, the staff of Self, within us and lifted our eyes until we strained heavenward over the mountain of the TFM.

Father, You brought the Vortex to us and You told us Your sovereignty is a wonderful thing. And now across the world, one voice declares – “My Sovereign Lord is my strength! You are my strength O Sovereign God. Your power is my safety. Your majesty is my native place. Your holy place is my comfortable location.” You taught us that deeply inside of Your heart. You instructed us to love the Body of Christ. You walked us up the mountain of Representation. You put upon us the crafted clothing of a wonderful priest. You built our anointings. You shaped our hearts. God, our Father, we can go on and on and on of the multitude of Your speaking, far too numerous to mention right here in this moment of prayer.

But for each one of us in our nations across the earth, as our hearts look backward over the experience that You have brought us through. The images flow through our hearts and minds, memories and emotions, and remembrances of the voice of God not only to Your Congress, but the voice of God into my individual heart. The voice of God into my families and into my children; the voice of God in my marriage, between myself and my wife; the voice of God in the leadership of my church; the voice of God reverberating and resounding through our worship and in our Sunday morning services and in times when the saints gather; the voice of God being consistent and powerful and increasingly strong inside of our hearts and lives. It is awakened in hearts of Your people across the Congress. We all are aware and conscious of the voice of God.

This is the day God, that our hearts have longed for. This is the day that we hoped for as we journeyed in the TFM and Representation. This is what we desired.  This is what we lifted up our eyes to see. This is what our fathers saw. This is what Abraham saw, refusing to build a house, living in tents, looking for a city whose builder and maker is God. This is what the prophets saw standing on mountains and gazing into the future. This is what Jeremiah saw as he wept his way into the revelation things of God. This is what Zechariah saw as he questioned You and pressed his way into knowledge. This is what Malachi saw as he prophesied at the closure of an age, his voice like thunder, leaping across the divides and igniting John the Baptist. This is what the Baptist saw when he commanded the power of the Kingdom coming into the earth. It anchored itself in Christ and this is what He saw when He hung on the cross. He looked out and He saw the glory and the beauty and the power of the Body of Christ.

Thank You Father for bringing us to this day. You have clothed us with accomplishment. You have filled our Congress with understanding.  You have given us so much wisdom. You have poured out upon us Your best resource and everything that You have. And our hearts are saying “It is too much God!.” We cannot carry this alone. We cannot carry this alone. The weight of it God, bruises our inner man.  It violates us God if we keep it to ourselves. It has become transgression to carry the glory of God all by ourselves. We can no longer do this Father. We have come to the end of ourselves. We have come to the end of our strength. We have come to the end of our capacity. The only thing that will bring nobility to us God is to bring it before You in sacrifice.

We recognize that what we have has been poured through us by Your grace and by Your mercy. Nothing that we have. Nothing that we declare was birth from within us God, from within our own faith, our own understanding or our own works. We recognize that everything that we have, everything that we have accomplished, was birthed in You, was birthed in the Holy of Holies, flowed down from heaven and came down through us.

And so this day, as a global people, with one voice, we declare, “We own nothing! We take hold of nothing! It is all of God and unto God. Every dimension of reputation, everything that we know and have accomplished, we declare, it is of God and it is not of us.” Father we stretch our hands towards You, all of us together, all our leaders and our people, down to the least of our saints. We come in equality, we come before You God as Your servants, as Your sons, as Your heirs and we lay down all our achievements before You God. We divest ourselves. We put it down before You. We offer it unto You as a sacrifice.

Remember our father Solomon when he lit up the city, when with bulls beyond number, he burnt sacrifices before You until a cloud with Your Presence came down into the earth.  A sacrifice of renown. A sacrifice that is pristine.

Father we come together to do that which has not been done before. We come to fulfill the longings of our brothers who are looking on. The Church of the Firstborn assembled in heaven. All of their cries, all of their prayers, all of their sacrifice, all of their martyrdoms, all of their suffering; for every saint that has died, for every believer that has given his life; for every hero that has stood in the earth, in the midst of barrenness and has hung on to truth of the word of God inside of their lives. Have refused to quit, have not backed down from the enemy, have lived in purity, year after year.

We celebrate the power of the heroes of faith. Those who gave their bodies to be burnt, who refused a deliverance that they might obtain a better resurrection. And those ordinary people living across the nations of the earth today who still hold on to their original, initial faith in God, have received no revelation, have never gone on a journey, have never been led to the deeper things of God by the Spirit of God. Hamstrung and imprisoned in empires of limitation and yet they hold on to You God. Our hearts reach out and connect to the structures of the Body of Christ.

I make this declaration before the throne of God and before heaven, “That is my brother! That is my sister! That is my life living in that imprisoned circumstance. That hero is my brother. I connect to him. What I have is his and we are one in Christ. We are one in Christ and before Christ.” And I reach out in the spirit God, beyond the limitations of my mortal life, and I connect my faith to my brother and to my sister, and l lay down my sacrifice before You. And I say God, let this contract become real this day in the heavens and in the earth. Let our sacrifice be received before You on behalf of the whole Body of Christ.

Father, everything in my personal life. Everything that I have accomplished. Everything that our Apostolic Team has accomplished, individually and together. Everything accomplished in our churches. And everything accomplished in every life. Everything accomplished in the purposes of God throughout the nations of the earth that is registered before You as the achievement of the Congress, we lay it down. We lay it down and we say God, look upon it from this time forth as having been done by the whole Body of Christ.

In the name of Jesus, I release ownership. In the name of Jesus, we release identity, In the name of Jesus, we release that which defines us. In the name of Jesus, we embrace death, God. Let it be done God on behalf of the whole Body of Christ.

We call angels in heaven to attention to hear. We say this in the face of the Darkness. Let the heavens be opened, and we make this declaration before the throne of God. Father! If ever You hear us, as You hear Your Son, hear the cry of Your Congress! Let this sacrifice come before You on behalf of the Body of Christ. From this day forth God, this is our cry, this is our desire, this is our contract. Let everything that we produce, and everything that flows from You out of us, no longer be registered, no longer be seen, no longer be recognized, as coming just from the Congress. But God out of the productivity of my life, out of the productivity of the corporate life of this Congress, let it all be accounted as being done by the Body of Christ.

Take our strivings towards maturity Father and declare that the Body of Christ is mature. Take our journey up the mountain of Representation.  Take the purification. Take the care with which we have dressed ourselves in the garments of the priest and declare the Body of Christ is dressed and purified and pristine and acceptable in Your sight.

Father, cover my brother’s nakedness and cover his limitation. Use that which You find in us and strengthen my brother in the name of Jesus. Let the sacrifice be written in the heavens now O God. If ever we prayed, if ever over the years You heard the cry of our voice, this day, Father, in the name of Jesus, let this covenant be established and this sacrifice be received before You in the name of the Lord.

God send Your power out into the nations. Release Your will and Your purpose out among the nations of the earth.  Stretch out Your mighty hand upon Babylon and smite it with Your majesty and with Your power. Bring us securely into the unfolding of the last and the final days. Register our maturity of the whole body. We speak as the Body, we cry onto You as the Body of Christ. O God! O Father! Release us from this mortality! Lift us up from this form of life! Hear the voice of the whole Church and the cry of every believer, the cry of everyone for whom You died.

We pray for those still locked in Babylon who are designed to be released in the midst of the last days. We send a shockwave of our voice into the structures of Babylon. We say to the darkness, loose them and let them go! Loose them! And let them go! Loose our brothers in Babylon! Loose our brothers in the darkness! Loose our brothers that need to be free! Loose them and let them go! NOW! Loose them and let them go!

The Body of Christ comes before You Lord, Your Body cries unto You from the midst of mortality. It is enough! It is enough! And our hearts long together for You. Your palaces are our home. Your throne is our home. Your heart is where we want to be. Your children seek You, mighty Father. Your sons arise and cry for Your nearness. Bring us home, bring us home, bring the whole Body of Christ home to You.

Father on this day of days, we bless Your name and we exalt You and we magnify You.

Lift Your voices people, all across the nations of the earth. Lift Your voices and shout onto God! Shout onto God! Father hear the shouts of Your people, hear the sound of their voice in the earth, prayer like rolling thunder God, moving across the earth. Let the cry of Your people come before You in the name of Jesus! In the name of Jesus! In the name of Jesus! Hallelujah!

We praise Your name O God. We bless Your name! We bless Your name God. We lift You up and magnify You. We worship You and praise You. We magnify Your name. Halleluiah! We give You praise. We give You praise. We bless Your name. We exalt Your name oh God we lift up our hands to You. We lift up our voice unto You. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

We praise Your name O Lord. We lift up our voice unto You. Thank You, Jesus. Thank You for hearing us. Thank You for hearing our prayer, we bless Your name O God! Hallelujah. Hallelujah. 

Come on people across the earth, worship the Lord. Lift up Your voices and bless his name. Bless his name forever. We praise You O God. We praise Your name Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Thank You Jesus. Thank You Jesus. O we bless You. We bless You and exalt You. We magnify You and praise You.
The end of our journey O God. We give You praise. We give You praise. We give You praise. Hallelujah! O we bless Your holy name.

Coordinators, lift up Your voices around the earth and lead the people and let there be a shout of joy and a celebration all across the earth. Let there be a mighty celebration!

Thank You God! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
