Since the beginning of time, great cultural achievements have often been framed around life-changing journeys. Take the Iliad, for example. Or Fast n Furious. The Orient Express. Dukes of Hazzard. The Partridge Family. Thelma & Louise.
Jon & Jolene.
As we work towards the next Glory Procession, we are on quite a journey throughout most of April. Participating in prayer strikes throughout Washington State, and tucking away to write a book on the historic turnarounds the Lamplighter family has witnessed together.
We really covet your prayer coverage this April—to the extent I’m devoting an entire posting towards our request.
Two Guys, a Porsche, and an Open Road
To begin this journey, over the next few days I have the privilege of accompanying my friend Russ on his annual car pilgrimage from LA to Seattle. I’ve traversed the east coast many times in prayer, including last year’s Glory Procession. But never the west coast. The journey itself is a dream come true, and I definitely feel this is forerunning a more comprehensive prayer journey in the future.
But beginning tomorrow, it’s just two guys, a Porsche, and an open road.
You cannot make this stuff up. On the other hand, you can definitely see why we need prayer.
Book Writing & Glory Train Planning
Following this, Jolene and I will be secluding ourselves in Washington State to seek the Lord and write a sequel to Crown & Throne. We will then be working on a prayer journey throughout Washington State with English prophet Rachel Hickson, Bill and Marlene Brubaker, and a group of Northwest intercessors.
Impacting books are not really written so much as they are “birthed.” And we really need your breakthrough prayer towards this end. Pray for God to draw us into His council chamber, releasing to us His Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus (Eph. 1:17). Pray for prophetic vision, Throne Room clarity and covenantal authority.
Pray for courage to tell the truth. Serious.
Please also pray also for an ease and fresh flow in writing. We want Heaven’s scrolls to be fully perceived and conveyed during this time—to write the vision and make it plain.
We are also in the “birthing room” for the upcoming “Glory Train” tour, the next phase of God’s “Glory Procession.” Please pray that the Lord brings clarity and strategy on this work. I’m pretty sure the book and tour are connected.
And if any of you have a word, please feel free to email us.
Coming Soon—Crown & Throne Schools
God’s timing is interesting. As we begin our second book, we are just now feeling released to bring teaching and equipping from “Crown & Throne.”
As we approach 2016, now more than ever we need “No King but Jesus.” And you all know how the Lord spoke to us at the beginning of the year about raising up “special forces” leaders and prayer warriors in the body of Christ. Catalysts for God’s turnaround!
So in late April through June, we’re beginning “Crown & Throne Schools” to bring hands-on equipping towards this end. So far schools have been planned for Washington State, Brunswick GA, and Philadelphia PA.
Make plans to join us! An updated schedule is coming soon.
Pray Exodus 23:20!
This Passover the entire world has just entered a new era. For the Israelites and for you, Passover is the time the journey actually begins.
It’s important to see where you are on the timeline. Just as with Exodus, the Court of Heaven has rendered judgment in your favor, according to Daniel 7:22 and Psalm 125:3. Despite many challenges, it is now time for the saints to possess the Kingdom. The scepter of the wicked must be rescinded from the land allotted to the righteous!
Want a promise for the journey? I believe Exodus 23:20 is being given to you by the Lord, just as He gave the Israelites for their journey. Never in our lifetime has this passage been more relevant than this hour.
“Behold, I am going to send an angel before you to guard you along the way, and to bring you into the place (promised land) which I have prepared” (Exodus 23:20).
With this at heart, please pray through this passage—for yourselves and for us. I would even suggest you come into covenant with the Lord afresh over His promise.
Grateful again for your prayers and care. Covenant blessings to each of you!
