Praying as The N.O.P. vs praying
Why I Pray, I was asked: I was asked this of myself? What prompted this question was a dear friend of mine asking me the question, why do I need to pray under the N.O.P. vs. just praying as I always do? I then had to perceive what was my goal in praying period and then reflected my part as being a Christian. Then my reflection of being a Christian and a member of The Net Of Prayer.
Some of the obvious answers are to pray for others or pray for our own needs. I believe people in general proverbially believe that this is what praying is all about. I believe some perceive or know what intersession is and some perceive warfare, but I take liberty in saying that most perceive it, praying that is, as a time of asking.
I had to reveal this in myself and thanks to The Lord for a few years of dedicated prayer with the N.O.P., and by “few years of dedicated prayer” I refer to the times I won the battle and prayed for our people on my knees. I fear to see out of ten years calculated by every day actually how many times I prayed to cover others. Hence a few years.
But by even the small amount of time I did give in, and pray, I grew to a position of needing prayer in my life. Understanding its benefit. I even miss it when I refuse or get beat down by our enemy. I have also evolved closer to a life as a prayer warrior and a desire to seek the Lord with a closer walk.
So if I had to sum it up, I would say I had a desire to know the Lord already within my heart and I had a lot of junk to get out of my heart. This was hard to do on my own with no direction or method per se.
Praying with the N.O.P. Has brought me to an understanding of being a part of a distinct work of The Lord, an action in the spirit. When there is a purpose to my prayer other than asking, I became more aware of my purpose to His will. I also began to recognize my desire to become a Christian, someone that remains with the Lord in eternity not just stand before His Presence for a time.
Praying with the N.O.P. Has the added benefit of the news letters and such for growing in the Lords instruction with this ministry. I really would wander in my prayers before this. Some people are seasoned Intercessors. Glory to the Lord, but many I believe will find that they will wander as I have mentioned with no clear focus other than asking for things. Fortunately we all need leading and nurturing by the Lord. I believe praying with and in submission to JESUS with Chuck_JOHNEL and the N.O.P. Has given me focus and purpose I can see. I see results.
Why I Pray now: I pray for a cover so I can give a cover. To intercede and become a warrior to defeat demons and principalities to protect the innocent and get a vial to cover our works against the enemy. I pray to grow closer to God through our Lord JESUS. I pray to memorize the basics, encase!
“I do not live in this world as one who stands out as different. I strive and yearn to be ye transformed; become different, one who can feel my Fathers Love. I want to feel His arms around me, I want to see His face to be born out of this flesh I need to abate. I wish to love my brother as my Father does. I need the temperance of Jesus, His Love, His communion . I want in my heart a new vessel. I want my mind to stop fighting. The fight daily, minute by minute to fight my knees from bending to supplicate, the fight to long for a minute with my Father which art though in heaven. I fight for, I even ask for the desire to be with Him which is hated, to be with Jesus and to be by His side, to be Loved of Him, to know Him: Jesus, this is why I must pray.”
I was asked and I have no authority for an answer and I have no expert opinion. I know of scripture that, that is given in the bible by inspiration, that which is recorded to help us become like Christ. I do have this as a tool, So I can only offer my inspiration and understanding to my Dear friend, one of my dearest, why one must Pray and why Praying with the N.O.P. Is different. I say a must. Praying with The Net Of Prayer, Is something I can only sum up as a desire given for the heart of God and it is a blessing to the administrator and also to those as a cover, to become one branch and bringeth about the body of Christ.
I came forward to write this with little or no research. I hope this will help others to see a difference. I know as a Christian we all struggle for many years at first to pray, we have a real adversary that is powerful with out Christ within us. It is hard to focus and pray effectively growing closer. I did no research. I wanted to write this from my heart. I have read before on the subject but not extensively.
I know many will not pray this way or be part of the N.O.P., simply because they would be acknowledging the message the warning therefore the revelation found in the Staff and Sword news letters. To me JESUS word is the most precious gift of this world. I know not why you run.
Now to explain my interpretation and influence by the Holy Spirit of why we should all come under The Net Of Prayer: The Staff and The Sword Ministry and the Creation of the N.O.P. Were commissioned by JESUS; so that this ministry and its volunteers could intercede for the church that refuses to intercede for itself when warnings of Judgement are presented by God.
Joining the Net of Prayer is not to take place of intersession that one conducts in their relationship to Jesus Christ just as joining the net of Prayer is not to change any Holy Spirit Guidance of any Ministry or individual in that fact. Joining The Net of Prayer is to be a Member of and is to add to what it is that is already known to you by the manifestation of the Holy Spirit. For those whom struggle with a relationship with Christ Jesus this is in fact, and will focus you and help yield you to Jesus’ will in your life.
When we join the N.O.P. and we are in focus through the direct relationship of JESUS to the N.O.P. through the news letters and our own revelations of, then we can see in the prayers, JESUS’ understanding to pray for events known, not known of or even, unseen. We can then pray as one unit for events to be diminished or even have events delivered from us. We actually gain more time for repentance and preparations for others, those that reject these type of revelations.
We pray to be in unity and in agreement with and in submission to JESUS CHRIST in Richard DANIEL, Nanci-TONI, Lyn-ELIZEBETH, Cathy-MARTHA and Chuck-JOHNEL
These assignments are explained in the INTRODUCTION TO THE NET OF PRAYER and throughout the Staff and Sword Literature. There are over a hundred pages explaining JESUS commission and organization of the leadership, ranking and branches of the N.O.P..
To the Mighty Men of Valor, This is my Warning (exposing a trick); Please do not feel repressed by the above fact, for this is Gods will not thine. Do not reject or cut off this portion of the body by jealousy or disbelief or feel dishonored for all Your Hard Works! There is no Honor Lost, we are in submission to CHRIST and Him Alone. Those mentioned above have fifteen to twenty years of intercessory warfare prayer behind there belts. Many whom I reach with this also have this, see the greatness.
Many might think this is to tailor their prayers to the N.O.P., But in reality there not, in my opinion. They are preparation to yield us under the N.O.P. Through JESUS LOVE and put us under one Branch One Arm of the Lord. Brings the body to understanding of Jesus warnings and will.
PREFACE PRAYER: Oh heavenly father GOD in whom I rejoice and delight, we come before your throne of majesty, might and glory, of holiness, goodness, righteousness and mercy, of joy and gladness, of provision, beauty and grace, and of all kindness, in JESUS’ NAME and under the BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST.
This prayer opens the door and brings us before the throne seat of God as we humble ourself before Him and praise JESUS NAME giving the Glory before the hosts of Heaven.
CHRIST LIGHT PRAYER: Oh heavenly father GOD, I ask in JESUS‘ Name and under the BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST to receive JESUS‘ light and agape love, to be filled with his presence and to be wholly yielded to his will, JESUS CHRIST.
This prayer allows Christ in our heart to change us to His likeness and His will in our lives. It also adds JESUS will into the prayer’s added that change events. Such as the prayer shown for an example here.
OPENING UNITY PRAYER: Dear heavenly father and my Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST, I come to you with all of my sin under the BLOOD OF JESUS, praying to be led by your HOLY SPIRIT and to be in unity and agreement with the intercessors of the Net of Prayer and those joined with us by the SPIRIT of GOD. Bless me with a humble spirit; quieting myself before You, yielding myself wholly to your will and paying full attention to You. Lead me by your HOLY SPIRIT that I be found in accordance with your perfect will. I pray, my sweet and loving Lord JESUS and precious heavenly father GOD, that your will be done on earth and in me as it is done in heaven, in Jesus‘ Name.
This prayer has now bound all of the N.O.P. In agreement and has added those that are of Gods Children by the HOLY SPIRIT. This is people like you and is you, for you are a Son of the Most High God that pray already and seek His face and has not fornicated the Word of The Lord. So see you were already praying with The Net Of Prayer and part of the campaign. Now you will have more direct revelation to your actions.
ANGELIC PROTECTION AND ARMOR: I pray, in the name of JESUS, that God’s holy warring angels be set all around myself and all of God’s people joined with me in prayer this day. I pray this day and everyday to gird my loins with the buckler of truth, to take on the breastplate of righteousness and to shod my feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Above all, I pray to take up the shield of faith, to put on the helmet of salvation and to take up the sword of the spirit, which is the word of god, as well as the lance of prayer and supplication. Heavenly father, clothe and fill me now with your light, agape love and Jesus’ humility and lead me under the banners of your holiness and righteousness through JESUS CHRIST in all ways according to your perfect will by your holy spirit. Amen. (Ephesians 6:13-18)
Now we put on the Whole Armour of God as one unit, one command, one body and we place Gods Holy Warring Angels around us and all those added unto us by The SPIRIT OF GOD and even those that intercede unknowingly with the N.O.P.. How powerful is that.
SPECIAL COVERING PRAYER: In JESUS’ name and under his shed blood, we pray to cover our ministry Apostles, Prophets,our Lord’s Generals,Colonels,Majors,Captains and every Net of Prayer Intercessor and those added to us by your Holy Spirit that they be surrounded by your Holy Angels and be kept safe from any attack of the enemy. Undergird and strengthen us all by the Spirit of God in our prayers and in our walk in Christ.
This prayer is acknowledgment, a covering for our head our leadership that is the formation of the N.O.P. and ALL Intercessors in CHRIST’S Name. These that our His the ones He will build up, hold up and draw close to His BOSOM. Hallelujah ! Amen!
I pray, I was given the words that will release the light of what it is I am trying to say to you. I address many men and women with my words; some addressed are such as I, ones who are barely weaned from the milk or even some are just starting to feed from the book of life, and many I address are of the meat, of The Word of God; and have been given much and shown much. These are Mighty Men of God of Valor of whom I know seek to give instruction to. Wherfore I am worthy, I am not. I am honored, but it is by necessity that I ask of thee. I praise not man but I admire those whom God has Chosen. I humbly Thank You.
I will now include the relationship report I just found on the Staff and The Sword website. I believe Chuck-JOHNEL has the maturity and time in Christ that far exceeds me, to share what this is all about. I have missed this report myself and now read. I have been a member since the year 2000, proverbs 6:9.
I briefed the first few pages but did not want to influence my own words sharing my experience with the Net Of Prayer. I believe many who pray daily will not understand why I ask we pray under the Net of Prayer and to those who are starting to pray I want to show why it is a great tool (Blessing) to have the N.O.P. to pray with. I live by faith in hope I can put relevance on the power to defeat the enemy if we all come under the prayers with The Net Of Prayer!
The Staff and The Sword Ministry
When you join the Net of Prayer, you become yoked in Love for others under Jesus’ direction in your prayers, concerns, fasting, and intercessions-essentially you come under Jesus IN ALL THINGS!!!
Make no mistake: it is not me, Chuck-JOHNEL, that you are yoked to, it is Jesus. I only deliver His Word.
BURDEN OF PRAYER
Let’s be plain here. It is a burden to pray, but it is also a joy. Thus, prayer is called a labor of love. Next, it takes a discipline of daily prayer to rightly pray at all and lastly each of us must be yielded to pray the way the Holy Spirit shows us to pray. It is not uncommon for me to wonder at times why we pray in certain ways, and if the choice were mine, I would pray about things other than the Lord shows me/us to pray about.
Thus we learn, exercise, practice “Obedience, Discipline, Yieldedness” to the Spirit of God in the Net of Prayer.
All this is a Holy Spirit preparation for something much greater; for while we pray on concerns that Jesus has, thus laboring in Love of Jesus, it also serves another Holy Spirit purpose. Through Obedience, Discipline, and Yieldedness we gain the opportunity to enter into a deeper, more intimate relationship with Jesus Himself.
WHY DON’T YOU QUOTE MORE SCRIPTURE?
I did years ago. But, Jesus showed me to speak plainly by His Spirit in everyday terms and to share the Scriptural basis later. Why?
Long ago, when I shared Scriptures, I saw men had a literal blindness to the most obvious meaning where man’s doctrines prevailed in their minds. They would see the meaning of any given Scripture through man’s view of it and be unable to see the deeper real meaning of it. So Jesus showed me to use everyday language to convey the message and then would later provide the Scriptures to back it up.
When I had deep insights into “IN THE SPIRIT” back in 1981, included these insights in newsletters and reports at that time. However, it would not be until late 1982 that Jesus would show me Ezekiel 8:3 (one of a number of Scriptures that literally describes what He had given me and others to see), Even then, others could not accept it, even when the Bible clearly said the same as we had experienced. Again, it was man’s doctrinal views that held God’s children captive, even bound.
Over and over, I asked myself Why?
Jesus made it clear, these did NOT know Him. Instead, they only knew of Him through men. Sadly, it was men they knew, not Jesus. Jesus’ desire was that they should all come to know Him personally.
MORE TO COME
But, this is only an introduction. I will be writing a series of reports on this subject from what I have personally experienced and from what the Lord leads me to write. I write these reports so that each of you may, in turn, gain from what I have learned as Jesus taught me.
In the next report I will discuss HOW TO KNOW JESUS. Here’s a hint: “THE YOKE IS EASY!”
