“So that with one mind and one voice, you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – Romans 15:6
As Christians, we believe in the power of intercessory prayer. As the late minister James Edwin Orr once said, “No great spiritual awakening has begun anywhere in the world apart from united prayer.” Across the nation, leaders are hearing the Lord say that the U.S. is going to experience a great awakening.
Prompted by this message, a coalition of influential evangelical and charismatic/Pentecostal leaders met this past December in Colorado Springs, hosted by Dick Eastman at the international headquarters of Every Home for Christ.
The coalition—including Paul Cedar (Mission America), John Bornschein (National Day of Prayer), Ed Silvoso (Harvest Evangelism), Dutch Sheets, Lou Engle, David Butts (National Prayer Committee), and Mike and Cindy Jacobs (Generals International)—sought the Lord, strategized, and came to a consensus that God was leading them to unite and issue a national call for multiple days of fasting and prayer walking.
Out of this has emerged a broad coalition of ministries called, As One. The vision is: uniting as one in Christ Jesus, appealing to heaven to change the spiritual climate of our nation. The basic strategy revolves around two 40 day periods of prayer walking, fasting, and corporate prayer events. The first will start on Easter Sunday, March 27 and run through the National Day of Prayer on May 5. The second begins on September 30 and ends on Election Day. In addition, there will be much collaboration with major national prayer events that are happening throughout the year.
The plan is to prayer walk every street and every zip code, which will take an army of believers who will strap on their walking shoes and cry out to heaven as they journey past the streets, houses, businesses, schools, and police and fire stations of the nation. We foresee a multi-generational and multi-racial effort at bringing transformation. God is looking for a people who will take Him at His word to “give Him no rest” until our nation returns to righteousness, as we appeal to heaven to see a massive revival sweep the nation from coast to coast.
The new national website that will have devotions, information and many resources is: www.prayasone.org. More details will soon be available on how you, your church, and other movements can join us in putting feet to our prayers.
