Prayer, Praise & Proclamation

Ray Hughes

We are living in an amazing time in history.
* he is moving in new wonderous ways
* we are living in a generation where we are going to experience God in new * ways

Prayer is:
* language
* intent of the heart

Pray right now that the Holy Spirit will bring a refreshing

You are not writing the next hit you're writing the next generation of praise.

Man tries to define God and tries to limit him to what He can do.
* the Holy Spirit is a fire, a storm, a wind, water.
* He can be a gentleman
* he can be a dove
* he can also be a wildcard

James 1:17–22 Be willing to experience God in casual moments of life.
* The word righteous sounds like a lofty term but the real foundation of the word means “as it should be”
* Most revivals last about 12 to 18 months
* When a man turns his eyes to defined righteous living and turns away from what the Holy Spirit is doing now
* Follow the wind of the Spirit

We are now in a generation that is willing to say “I am a worshiper first”.
* When we carry a new day with us, its called the presence of the Lord
* We carry a new word, a new song

We were created to be worshipers. If we are not worshiping God we are not fulling the calling of our life.

Worship Leaders - the greats tool that you have is the overflow:
1. A fire in your heart to worship God
2. A fire in your heart to see others worship God

Worship means to tremble fearfully in the presence of God.
* Worshipers also carry in their heart justice issues.
* God wants to great worshipers that can shift the spiritual atmosphere of cultures or city.
* God is going to raise up a generation that carries the weight that He does in a spiritual atmosphere.

Be doers of the word not hearers only.
* A common mindset in the church is to “strive”
* Eventually we burn out, then after being convicted we come back and strive

Doer means a performer poet.
* Performance is only bad when used through striving and through control
* But here is means an inspired action

Throughout scripture, the word poet and prophet is the same thing.
* Grace cannot be in tune with striving
* When people step up with intention they release a wave of God. That is what your sound and your song carry
* The light does not shine on us it shines through us

Before the printing press, knowledge of who kings are would be told by word of mouth.
* Storytellers, singer, songwriters, poets would go out into the realm and introduce the King through their creativity.
* They would tell about the king to the people who would never get to experience who the king is.

We are in a time when poetry is coming alive again.
* Lawgivers never shape culture
* Songwriters, artists, and poets do
* Songwriters shape generations

Tradition creates mindsets and mindsets creat belief systems.
* Truth shakes traditions because it is the only thing that can break through mindsets

God is going to raise up a generation that gives humanity a new definition of who He is.

10 Words that relate to the word for Prophet in the Bible:
* to make or create - to do
* A product of workmanship - poema
* A deed or an action
* A poet
* Various, variety
* to tend as a shepherd
* to supervise
* a shepherd pastor
* a flock
* a group of believers
* an individualizing man
* An inspired speaker

God inspired action for the sound of your song. What you are seeing and hearing becomes manifest.

John 4

The Samaritan woman did not know it was Jesus who asked for a drink of water.
* Jesus speaks of living water the He gives.
* The woman asks for a drink of this water.
* Jesus speaks with her about her husbands.
* She releases that this man (Jesus) is a prophet.

We always identify with the women at the well. But that's the problem. You are not the women at the well. You are Jesus at the well.
* We carry the sound of heaven we carry the creative nature of God.
* Let your life come alive in those situations.

The fear of man will take your song away quicker than anything.
* What is your song?
* You are the prophetic word to your generation.
* you are doers of the word.
