We have hosted 3 Appeal to Heaven conferences this year — The Turnaround in Washington, DC, Forward in Colorado Springs, and Giants Will Fall in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In the words of a trusted prophetic friend, “I thought after DC I would never experience anything as great in my life. To my surprise, Colorado Springs was greater and Chattanooga, shockingly, was greater than them both.”
The increasing strength of each gathering is an encouraging sign of America’s turnaround. Momentum is building, giants are falling. Not only did we have 1000 people in attendance, but another 100,000 participated online. This is so amazing, especially since those who attended and watched the gathering did so for one reason only—not to receive—but to partner with us in prayer and spiritual warfare for our nation. In fact, we did not even utilize speakers in every session; some sessions were simply worship and prayer. There truly is a spiritual army arising in this nation!
Holy Spirit strategically led us into various arenas of prayer throughout the Giants Will Fall conference. There was much intercession regarding the shifting of the Supreme Court, perhaps the biggest spiritual giant in America for the last 50 years. The consensus from leaders present was that we are now experiencing this great shift, and that another opening will be occurring on the Court very soon. We prayed into this, not by “cursing” any individual, but by praying blessings and salvation over all the Justices, while also asking God for the vacancy. We then prayed and decreed His choice to replace the next person leaving the Bench.
Closely associated with the Court is the abortion issue. There was much prayer regarding this hideous giant. We believe we are close to seeing the evil law, Roe vs Wade, reversed. This could be the most significant event of our lifetime regarding America’s future and destiny. This giant is falling.
We also prayed not only for the Supreme Court, but for all of our government. The upcoming mid-term elections are perhaps the most significant. Believing God has put President Trump in office as a great change-agent, we must not allow a shift in Congress that would cause this to stall. God is using our president to shift the Judicial system, expose corruption in our government, strengthen our military and economy, support the Church, and reverse many unrighteous regulations. We prayed for our President, asking God to give us the leaders we need in this upcoming mid-term election. We were also reminded that once conservative leaders are in office, we must remember to continue praying for them and their families.
We prayed against the giant of racism. Chuck Pierce spoke strongly into this, stating that the root of racism is anti-Semitism. Will Ford and Matt Lockett also shared powerful words regarding this stronghold. Indeed, their very lives, mingled together, are weapons against this hideous spirit. After they shared their story of racial healing and harmony, it was incredibly moving to see Black, White, and First Nations brothers kneeling together around Will’s ancestral kettle [you can read their story in their new book The Dream King]. We believe much happened in the spirit realm to bind the strongman and dismantle the stronghold of racism in America.
There was also a great emphasis on the Millennials and Generation Z (those born in 1995 or later). We heard firsthand testimonies from several teenagers who were in DC praying during the Kavanaugh hearings. Our host church had planned the trip for a year, not knowing they would be taking the 70 teenagers to the Capital at such a strategic time! The Lord used them tremendously while in DC and in the conference, they led us in powerful prayer for the healing and restoration of our nation. It was a very moving session.
On Saturday morning, the presence of the Lord came into the meeting in a profound way. It was both tender and strong. Holy Spirit reminded us of the mercy He offered America in the 2016 elections and we pressed into this mercy once again. We felt the Lord’s strong embrace and His great love for our nation. From this place of strength, we made powerful decrees over America and against the spiritual giants that have ruled us.
It is often impossible to adequately communicate what occurs spiritually in a conference such as this. Some “atmospheres” simply must be experienced. But I will say that this gathering reached an epic point in prayer and intercession for America. I am rejoicing and grateful beyond words. Please be in prayer with us as we determine the next step for the Appeal to Heaven gatherings.
