“Azusa Now|The Call” and “United Cry”

Today, in the Los Angeles Coliseum, there will be a gathering of over 80,000 mostly young people crying out to God for a Great Awakening to begin. On the opposite coast, over 30,000 pastors will gather at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D. C., to repent for the sins of the nation. You can join in prayer right where you are.

“This day is about turning America back to God. There’s another Jesus movement coming, another massive baptism in the Holy Spirit. We have been praying that stadiums would be filled. In a dream a friend had, he said, “We can only fly United.” The Church must unite. Only a united Church can heal a divided nation. God is going on a date with His Church today. (These are) not events, but a massive breakthrough for America—the birth of a new Holy Spirit movement.” Lou Engle1

“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” (John 13:35; NLT) “Just as You sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world.” (John 17:18; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Repent for the sins of this nation.

  2. Thank the Lord for this amazing date where He is meeting His Church from coast to coast across racial and generational lines.

  3. Passionately ask Him for a new Holy Spirit-led move of God, a new Jesus Movement, a third Great Awakening.

  4. Intercede between the apathy that the Church has been in and the fire God wants to bestow us with. Ask that it happen today!

A prayer you can pray:

God, we ask You to send Your Holy Spirit again, even as You did in the book of Acts, Chapter 2. We need a move of God that transcends the apathy and intellectualism of the American church today. We desperately need a fresh outpouring of Holy Spirit. The Church and the nation need You to show up and sweep thousands supernaturally into the Kingdom. Father, send your Spirit to fall on these gatherings and on all of those joining in prayer across the nation and on the lost all around each participant. Please do this, Lord! We want You in America! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that today will be a turning point in the history of the Church in America—a Holy Spirit-birthed movement is beginning today!

Soaring

Judge of the whole earth, you are calling us to a higher level. “Come up higher,” You say. And so we say, “We are soaring by the power of the Holy Spirit to a new level. We are not soaring as a normal bird would soar. We are soaring with eagle wings above the storm, so that we can hear You.”

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Life has challenges. Go ahead and tell God about the challenges you are facing today. He cares about this. Ask Him to give you hope that He will intervene in these things that concern you.

  2. Now, tell Him about the challenges our nation is facing. Ask Him for hope that He wants these things to change even more than you do.

  3. Tell the Lord you want to see things from His vantage point in heaven, so that you can see that He has everything under control and so you can pray with a renewed hope.

  4. Ask Him to help you hear His voice and pray the prayers He wants you to pray about all of these things. Get your Bible out and get ready. Now, pray!

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, I am facing (tell Him what these things are.) My nation is facing (tell Him what these things are.) Renew my hope. I want to come up higher in the spirit and see things the way You see them. I know You have answers that I would never think of. I want to pray the way You want me to pray, so that my life and this country can line up with Your will and Your plan! In Jesus Name, Amen.

Today’s decree:

We have ears to hear what Holy Spirit is saying our ears have been opened to hear!

Identical Anointing of Jesus

“You are identical heirs with Jesus. You have the identical anointing of Jesus, not because you deserve it, but because of His grace, because of His love. You are an heir. At Christ’s resurrection, He issued an order to the Church—take My gospel everywhere! And, of course, they did!” Tim Sheets1

“The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.” (Romans 8:16-17; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Read the above devotional and scripture out loud inserting your own name in the passages. You have the same anointing and inheritance that Christ has! You You have the same miracle-working power living in you. You have the same love of the Father that can move through you. You have the same eternal life and the same ability to invite others to receive it as well. Let that sink in.

  2. What could our nation look like if every Christian really believed this that they have this inheritance and this anointing? What could our families look like or our neighborhoods and communities?

  3. Pray that the Lord would take away your fear, give you a revelation of this truth and give you divine appointments as you take His gospel everywhere you go today.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I, (say your name), have the identical anointing and inheritance as Jesus does. I am your heir, just like Jesus is. I have access to the same promises, the same Holy Spirit, the same miracle-working power and the same endless well of love as Jesus does. You gave me all of this so that I can share the gospel of the Kingdom with those who are perishing. They can have this inheritance, as well. Our nation needs more believers understanding these truths, Lord. Let me be a walking, talking heir of Yours today.

Today’s decree:

The Church is rising up to understand that we are heirs with Christ and that we are carrying the love-soaked, miracle-working power of God everywhere we go today! Our nation is about to be changed!
