Restoring the Biblical Judeo-Christian Values upon which the United States and Western Culture was founded
The Restoration of America’s historic commitment to dependence upon God is desperately needed. The country needs His guidance and security, and the dignity He has given to all people.
To this end, we are calling for people to join a movement of the Holy Spirit happening now through to the end of 2020. Intercession is just one part of this movement which is seeking to bring healing to America’s soul. But it is a critical first part which will support the further work of healing the Lord is doing.
This is a call for repentance, healing and restoration, based on God’s promise in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14:
A plea to all those of you not living in the United States who are part of this global move of the Holy Spirit.
We desperately need your prayers! What is happening in the US is happening in other nations around the world. However, over the next few months, the USA is the epicenter of a colossal spiritual battle with global repercussions for the Kingdom of God. This, I believe, is the United States’ hour of greatest need for prayer.
It may not be an exaggeration to say that in the spiritual and political realm, this is comparable to 1940-to mid-1941 when Britain stood alone and faltering against the onslaught of Nazi Germany.
In May and June of 1940, during the battle of Dunkirk Winston Churchill in the political sphere stood nearly alone, unmasking the monstrous evil of Nazism and resisting the chorus of those clamoring for appeasement and surrender.
In the spiritual realm, Rees Howells and the motley band of intercessors at the Bible College of Wales were busily interceding. Day and night, they raised the prayer shield against the demonic strongholds of Nazim poised to engulf England. In prayer, they faced the dangers presented both through the threat of military invasion and through subversion by appeasement within. They bound in the authority of Jesus Christ, the Devil manifesting through Hitler.
Please join in praying for us, and we will join you as you pray for healing in your nation as well. We are all in this together but need the focus of prayer as we face our “darkest hours.” At this time, America is in desperate need of your prayers. We feel very vulnerable and are in great danger right now. So need your prayers, love and fellowship.
Expanding the Vision
The Holy Spirit is calling for this prayer work to go viral and global, far beyond PRMI’s present sphere of influence.
PRMI’s stream is but one tributary in a great river of prayer that the Holy Spirit is igniting for the crisis in America and the Western world. Many different fellowships, mission groups and ministries are being mobilized. Each brings their own unique gifts and focus into this.
Most exciting of all for us here in America is seeing the African American Church leaders stepping up into anointed leadership. This is taking place in the Pentecostal, Charismatic and Independent streams, which PRMI has, because of our more reformed and mainline denominational background, not being well connected in recent years (in the 1980-1990’s we were!).
Our intention and prayer are that we will all work together and be a part of this great concert of prayer.
Praying “Thy Kingdom Come”
This call to prayer consists of two great movements, based on praying “Thy Kingdom Come,” as defined by the Reformed Confessions.
Praying For the Holy Spirit
We are called to pray for the outpouring for the Holy Spirit. We need to pray for revival. We need to pray that the hearts of people, beginning with those of Biblical faith – Jews and Christians – would be moved to repentance for our sins of neglect, self-centeredness, and disregard for others’ welfare. As hearts are changed, right action can follow.
As Dr. Leighton Ford, Presbyterian evangelist and mentor, has said, “The heart of the problem is the problem of the human heart.” Only Christ, the Messiah can bring spiritual healing and the desire to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God and each other. (Micah 6:8 )
This prayer work includes praying for major areas of our nation’s life where deep healing – physical, emotional and spiritual – is needed.
Praying against the work of the Enemy
The second movement of prayer is to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in discerning, unmasking and defeating the demonic strongholds being built by Satan. The purpose of these strongholds is to bring division to the United States and block the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
A Five-Fold Prayer Focus
We have identified five particular prayer foci which are vanguard movements of the Holy Spirit:
1. Overcoming the effects of Covid-19
We need to pray that the impact of Covid-19 would be overcome through the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. This healing extends to the societal and individual devastation caused by the pandemic. This will include prayers for a restoration of the bonds of love and friendship within the nation, so that, all citizens can care for one another’s health.
2. Empowering Leaders
We need to pray for the empowering of political, governmental, business, educational, religious, and other cultural leaders who embody and uphold Judeo-Christian values. These leaders need to be empowered by the Holy Spirit to actively work to restore these values in the areas of their sphere of influence.
3. Healing from Racial Injustice
We need to pray for the healing of wounds from past and present racial injustice. We need to call the Church to take moral leadership in proclaiming the value of all persons as being created by God in His image. In addition, we need to pray for the unmasking and the removal of the ground, which allows evil spirits and anti-Judeo-Christian ideologies to use these wounds to create division and destruction.
4. Praying for Unity
We need to pray for God to bring healing of the USA’s divisions and polarization by the power of the Holy Spirit and in the Name of Jesus Christ to remove from our land the spirits of hated, rebellion and disunity.
5. Pray for an Ignited Church
We need to pray for the Church to be ignited in the power of the Holy Spirit. We need to pray that the Church would stand up and be the hands, feet, and voice of Jesus Christ. We need to pray that the Church would see our present challenges as opportunities to reach out with the good news about Jesus and His transforming power, thus advancing the Kingdom of God. We must all love like Jesus!
HERE IS WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Join with us in praying in the five vanguard movements of the Holy Spirit listed above.
Please pray for us— the PRMI team, as we are receiving the Holy Spirit’s guidance to create the practical program expressions that will enable every one of us, with our different gifts and callings, to take part in Jesus’ work within these five vanguard movements of the Holy Spirit.
We also need to pray in all the provision of finances and people to develop these means of engagement in this great spiritual campaign.
Pray for our strong protection and anointing of the Holy Spirit as we are called into the maelstrom of the advance of the Kingdom of God over the powers of darkness in the heavenlies and on earth.
Above all, pray for the manifestation of the presence and power of Jesus Christ in the Kingdom of God pervading and transforming every dimension of reality.
An estimated $60,000 has come in to launch this urgent prayer initiative by providing for the following elements:
- The expenses of those who will be invited to provide teaching and leadership in prayer
- The production and distribution of teaching and prayer materials (video, print and over the internet) especially critical when face to face meetings are limited because of COVID-19.
- Publicity and promotion, widely and quickly, to mobilize prayer in this strategic initiative.
- Administration and support for PRMI ministry staff who will coordinate and guide this project.
WE WANT TO THANK ALL THOSE WHO PARTICIPATED IN HELPING US GAIN A GREAT MATCHING GIFT, UP TO $20,000. THROUGH YOUR GENEROUS GIFTS WE WERE ABLE TO RAISE THE MATCHING $20,000 BEFORE THE CUT-OFF DAY!
THE TIME IS NOW! We believe the Lord is calling us to step into this Kairos moment. And some elements of this prayer initiative such as the Discerning the Times are already operative.
Are we still raising funds for this prayer initiative?
YES! If you can help sustain this initiative with a gift of any amount, please be sure to mark your gift for the “Healing America’s Soul” prayer initiative. All gifts received will go towards the fulfillment of this prayer call.
Participate! How is God calling YOU!
Please begin to pray over these five vanguard movements and ask the Lord to clearly let you know the ones that He is calling you to participate in. We all have a part to play!
There are a number of opportunities to get involved in this work of prayer and as more are developed we will be letting you know.
Join the PRMI Global Prayer Call as we pray into dealing with the effects of COVID 19. The prayer calls on Monday, Wednesday and Friday’s at 12:00 noon Eastern (adjust for your time zone) focus on praying for the recovery of the economy, a global harvest for the Kingdom of God, the renewal of the church and for the healing of our culture.
We shall be developing a number of prayer networks and cohorts to pray further into these areas.
Please join in prayer and financial support for this initiative during this hour of our greatest need as a Nation and our role in God’s Kingdom plans.
We are convinced that prayer makes a difference and does change the tide of history. So if you are truly concerned about the course of present events, and the way they are all pointing to an impending national and global disaster, this is a way that each of us really can do something that will shape history not according to the Devils plans for evil, but in fulfillment of the biblical vision of the Kingdom of God.
We are all in this battle together!!!
