Day 15: Tuesday to Tuesday–Time for the Final Push

New! “Tent the Nation” video with Jon, and Jason Hershey We were literally sheltered from the storm. As reports come in from across the eastern seabord, it is clear that the metro DC could have fared far worse. This monster storm has already flooded New York City, caused fires and even explosions in a power plant, brought down major infrastructure across the northeast, toppled cranes and fishing piers, and left 7.5 million without electricity. Blizzard-like conditions span from West Virginia to Tennessee. And the storm is not over. Over the next few days, charts show Sandy moving back across northern New York and New England. Please continue to keep the northeast in prayer–that flooding cease, damage be minimized, and this storm move quickly out to sea. Republican governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, known for hardline opinions, spoke about President Obama today. Referencing a midnight phone call, Christie said, “I want to thank the President personally for his personal attention” to New Jersey during the crisis. “He deserves great credit.” Tent the Nation Tomorrow! Tomorrow, on Reformation Day, we Tent the Nation! We encourage you to connect with USRPN/HAPN leaders in your state. Make plans to worship at your state capital, and pray for seats of authority! More on Tent the Nation tomorrow. For now, please read through yesterday’s posting and prepare accordingly. To view a brief video on...

Day 14: Reclaiming Seats of Authority

Special thanks to Dr. John Benefiel and Martin Frankena for sharing key concepts on this theme. Thanks to Martin for helping to put together the prayer for freedom.  It’s been an interesting morning. For the past few weeks a few of us have been praying with Dick Simmons, a legendary father of governmental intercession. His house is directly across the street from the Supreme Court. Nothing like praying with Dick Simmons in a hurricane–with the elections only a week away! And there’s no contest between Hurricane Simmons and Hurricane Sandy in intensity. Of Omelets and Speedy Justice You learn all kinds of precious secrets from Dick Simmons. Like how the Supreme Court cafeteria serves up really good omelets, for a reasonable price. So after a week of work this morning in prayer, I waded across the street for a really good breakfast. And was stunned to find out–though the rest of the Federal Government was shut down, the Supremes were still holding court! In a hurricane! There’s probably something prophetic about this. Justice prevailing through a hurricane… court is still in session… let justice roll like a river, and righteousness like an everflowing stream… And when you explore the correlation between 24/7 prayer and speedy justice, it’s exciting that David’s Tent is holding court only a few blocks away. I can’t wait to spend copious amounts of time there...

Day 13: When the Tabernacle Must Take Shelter

Just announced–the Federal Government will be shut down tomorrow due to the approaching hurricane. Davids Tent has safely relocated to Faith Tabernacle, 300 A Street NE. What an honor to enthrone Jesus 24/7 on Capitol Hill as at the White House! We will be there probably til at least October 31, then return to the Ellipse. Remember that on October 31–Reformation Day–we “Tent the Nation” at the four corners and governmental centers of our states. The Bridal Canopy Prevails! Remember Cindy Jacobs’ vision of the X over our nation that transformed into a Bridal Canopy. We are seeing an incredible visual of this, playing out before our very eyes! We can plainly see how the enemy is trying to “X us out,” and how God is establishing His Bridal Canopy over our land. Lets all declare, “The Bridal Canopy prevails!” Please keep Davids Tent in prayer, and make plans for Tent the Nation. From Virginia to Maine, God is softening the ground for the tent pegs to be driven in. Lord, all we really needed was a little soaking rain… maybe You went just a little overboard on this! When the Tabernacle Must Take Shelter… This morning I felt the Holy Spirit quicken to me the phrase, “When the Tabernacle must take shelter…” Ponder this a moment. I have long felt that Davids Tent is a signpost for the...

Day 12: Shelter from the Storm

“I had a dream last night, in my dream I had just woken up and was in a panic cause I had to find the lanterns I had ordered for an emergency. I couldn’t remember where I put them and I knew I had to find them ASAP…I knew it was important to find them cause something was coming! So when I got up this morning and saw the news about this “Monster Storm” heading our way, it certainly got my attention. I knew there was a hurricane but did not know any details about it, or that it was supposed to come this way. When you read that this one even has the meteorologist spooked and predicted to be worse than the 1999 “Prefect Storm”…well it makes you realize prayer needs to be mobilized for sure“–Lynnie Harlow. Due to extenuating circumstances, I am sending along tomorrow’s posting today. So you can either pace yourself and read this tomorrow, or receive a “double portion” prayer boost today! Are we facing a “Perfect Storm?” The imagery is just too hard to miss. Especially when you read Jolene’s prophetic experience below. I personally believe Hurricane Sandy is a warning to us about potential challenges ahead. Which makes Jolene’s revelation below all the more significant. God wants to “Tent the Nation” before the true storm hits. From coast to coast, may we...

Day 11: Hurricane Sandy! Prayer for Davids Tent

Most of you know that Washington DC is directly in the path of Hurricane Sandy. Please keep Davids Tent in prayer, night and day, every day. Wherever you are, keep vigilant watch! Right now, we have the go-ahead to remain onsite through the storm. We also have contingency plans to move Davids Tent to Faith Tabernacle on Capitol Hill. MY PERSONAL PRAYER IS THAT GOD SEND THE STORM OUT TO SEA. Protect and Defend I just received significant insight from a note from Pam, an intercessory friend from Oklahoma. “Hi Jon! I want to thank you for allowing me to be a part of the incredible prayer calls these past weeks! It has and continues to be an honor to pray with all the intercessors! I felt led last night to look up what the name “Sandy” means in relationship to what God might be saying about the approaching hurricane. I found it most interesting that Sandy means “defender of men, protector of mankind.” And then in my Names book which lists the spiritual significance of each name, it lists “Guardian of Truth” with 1 Timothy 6:20 as the scripture: Guard what God has entrusted to you. Avoid godless, foolish discussions with those who oppose you with their so-called knowledge. I thought that verse was very appropriate in light of all the campaign garbage!” This hit home to me as because, for...
