Karina and I wanted to ask for your prayers, support, and to invite you to participate in a couple important things we feel that God is doing in this season.
WASHINGTON DC INTERNSHIP MINISTRY TRIP
Our Missions Base is a few weeks into the Fall launch track of the Relentless Internship. We are beginning to see great impact as the Spirit is stirring up zeal for the Lord in our midst. Accordingly, a door has opened for our entire internship team to pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. at the end of this month (September 22-27) to spend a week in ministry and contending intercession to Awaken America. This is a unique opportunity for this internship, in fact we have never done this in the past.
We need your help to get us there!
This is a strategic season. Elections are on the horizon. It has been said that the elections in Florida alone will determine 100 years of righteous decrees through the appointing of Supreme Court Justices and judges. The recent Hobby Lobby Supreme Court contraceptive ruling has shown that God is doing something unique in our nation, when it seemed as though the flood of wickedness was nearly unchallenged, “God has raised up a standard against it” (Is. 59:19).
Our interns and internship team will spend this week in DC, partnering with God to raise up that standard even more by walking out the 1 Timothy 2 mandate to “First of all” — that is, one of the Church’s first responsibilities as a corporate Body is to make “…supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings…for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions…” Why? “…that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” (1 Tim. 2:1-2)
Our prayers for our leaders and country actually have a direct impact upon how the Gospel goes forth to impact our nation. This is why it has been said “History belongs to the intercessors.” And this is why we are heading to DC: to contend for God to awaken America; to minister and pray over our leaders; to prayer siege the US Supreme Court, joining with the Justice House of Prayer and Bound4LIFE; and to allow our interns and staff to receive impartation from them and to serve them however we can.
My prayer is that our interns will become gripped with the burden on the Lord’s heart for America in a new and real way during this time, and we believe God has divine assignments there for all of us that we can’t even know yet.
Would you please pray for us as we take our first ministry trip as a family? We need $500 (gas, food, and metro travel expenses) to make this possible as we travel together as a family with our 3-month-old daughter. If you would like to contribute, please let me know! Anything would be very appreciated. If you want to give, you can give online here: http://www.ihoptallahassee.org/give/pwam or mail a check.
