ACPE Word Of The Lord 2014 from Cindy Jacobs

ACPE Word of the Lord for 2014


Each year, as we have since 1999, the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders meets before the New Year to pray and seek the Lord for a word. In 2011 we added a group of emerging prophetic leaders that, this year, we consider fully seasoned members of our round table and we include their input as well into the word of the Lord.

The ACPE carries the conviction that we are to function as an Acts 13:1-3 group. This passage notes that it was the Holy Spirit releasing a prophetic word as a consensus of the prophets as opposed to the exclusive utterance of any one prophet. So, even though this is a compilation of the prophecies that we each have brought to the round table meeting, it was the general consensus of the ACPE members that the Holy Spirit was speaking the following prophetic words to us.

While we are calling this a prophecy for 2014, it should be noted that the ACPE believes that the Lord speaks more in seasons, as opposed to our calendar years, and in the past few years we have observed that the trend of some of the prophetic words has been continuing for several years and is intensifying.

It is also important to note that intercession can diminish the severity of some of the words that speak of potential judgment – and in some cases may avert them all together. In any case, all prophecies should be bathed in intercession, both the ones that speak of harvest and blessing, as well as the ones with admonitions attached to them.

As prophets, it is always wise to go back and look at the words we have given in the past. We did this for the years of 2011-13, and noted that the Lord continues to speak regarding some of the trends spoken in those years. So let us reiterate. The timing of prophetic words should generally be understood more in a season than a calendar year, and the words given are not fate or karma, but can be changed subject to how God’s people respond.

2014 – The Year of the Double

There is a spiritual significance to both the Hebraic calendar year 5774, which we have entered, and the year 2014, which tie together in quite an interesting way. The Hebraic year 5774 typologically indicates that we will “see the door” or “know the way in which we should go,” while the year 2014—being a fourteen, or two sevens—signifies “the double.” Taken together, one could consider this to be a season of double doors.

Isaiah 45:1-3
“Thus says the Lord to His anointed, To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held – To subdue nations before him, And loose the armor of kings, To open before him the double doors, So that the gates will not be shut.

I will go before you And make the crooked places straight, I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron,

I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Amthe God of Israel.”

The prophets’ council was encouraged this year to be able to give quite an encouraging word for the coming year. This is not to say that there will not be continued shakings, but there is also an open door for acceleration and the accomplishment of dreams that have seemingly been put on hold or delayed.

Fourteen—The Number of Double Perfection

While we understand that we are not to be overly mystical, the Bible is a book of numbers, and fourteen is very significant biblical number. Fourteen represents double completion, and is used powerfully in the Bible to iterate this fact. Following are some examples of the significance of fourteen in scripture:

 Generations

Matthew 1:17
“So all the generations from Abraham to David are FOURTEEN generations, from David until the captivity of Babylon are FOURTEEN generations, and from the captivity of Babylon until the Christ are FOURTEEN generations.”

There is a shifting of mantles from one generation to another that is taking place. Leaders need to look for their successors and allow the next generation to take their place or a move of God will be missed.

The Fear of the Lord

The number fourteen is also connected with the fear of the Lord and is used 14 times in the book of Proverbs. God is going to put the fear of the Lord back into the Church and this will be seen through a new holiness movement. New endurance will be given to those who stand for holiness in all of society. This will manifest in a unique way through those who are called to media and the film industry. A “John the Baptist” type anointing will fall upon young evangelists to preach in such a way that true, deep conversions will result in dramatic turning away from sin to a life of holiness.

Deliverance and Salvation

The number fourteen represents deliverance and salvation and is used 22 times as such in the Bible.

God is going to not only give His people a double portion of favor and influence in this coming year, but wants us to manifest this in others’ lives. In essence, we are carriers of God’s blessings to others such as Elisha was to the city of Jericho. He had a double portion of Elijah’s mantle and used it to heal the waters of the entire city.

The Door of Hope

In this season that represents a door, one of the most encouraging words we’ve received is that God is opening a door of hope.

Hosea 2:15
“There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will sing as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt.”

Hope is the absolute expectation of something good.

Many who have experienced great hopelessness and have even said, “I am so glad that 2013 is over,” will receive new joy and hope in this coming season. This hope will be supernatural in nature.

Job 14: 7-9
“For there is hope for a tree, if it is cut down, that it will sprout again And that its tender shoots will not cease. Though its root may grow old in the earth And its stump may die in the ground, Yet, at the scent of water it will bud And bring forth branches like a plant.”

Part of the hope will come as God moves His people from a place of confusion in their lives to a place of clarity. Many have not been able to see their way and find direction for their future, but there is coming a new view. They will see the door or gate.

United States

The Lord is going to give the United States another opportunity to redeem herself. America has turned away from God and, as prophecies have spoken, has lost a measure of greatness across the face of the earth. However, there is a second chance coming to the nation.

There is a battle for the soul of the nation that will manifest in the election of 2014 but the Lord has some surprises up His sleeve. There will continue to be polarity between liberals and conservatives, but those states who stand for biblical values versus those who don’t will experience an increase in blessing.

However, the pressure in some states, particularly on the coasts, will cause people to cry out to God. A new move of God will break out in upstate New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The fires of God will also visit Seattle, Washington once again, as God pushes the reset button on this city that is the birthplace of the Charismatic Movement.

Latinos will move out in leadership and influence. A major move of revival around the world will be spear-headed by the Latino community.

Governmental leaders

The seeds of a new political party that will align with both righteousness and justice are sprouting in the nation. There is a shift in political landscapes that will result in new alignments, and these alignments will surprise and even shock people. The United States is at a place where there will be a new “party of Lincoln,” with revolutionary reformers arising. It will have a heart for social justice – fighting human trafficking, poverty, racism and abortion; and it will marry this with biblical values. One of its attributes will be a fiscal plan that, when put in place, will eliminate the national debt. Again, it should be noted that this is not going to happen within a one year period of time and will require much intercession.

Those who have purified themselves and have been faithful are about to be released at a national level. This is the season for Esthers, Daniels and Josephs to arise and influence key positions in government. It is a key time for women in government who must arise and answer the call to engage.

Native Americans are going to come to a new, visible place of government.

A righteousness movement is going to arise out of the African American community in the United States and it will start something new that will greatly impact both communities and the nation. This will be, in essence, a new civil rights movement that will bring the nation back to purity and holiness, without compromising the stand for justice.

Miracles Linked to the Ending of Abortion

The ending of abortion for the United States will be one spiritual factor in opening up a new move of miracles. After 1973, and the legalization of abortion, the United States came under a curse that will begin lifting with the ending of 2013. This is the year for the re-birth of the signs and wonders movement and the birthing of the saints’ movement for evangelism and miracles.

The Refiner’s Fire

There is, along with the previous things, a renewed groundswell of moral values. Many leaders have been in the refiner’s fire and have been prepared to be moved into new levels of leadership.

In the United States’ political landscape, there is a new “black robe regiment” of pastors arising, such as in the early days of the nation, who will refuse to compromise biblical values and will be unashamed and unafraid to preach truth from their pulpits.

Jesus People Movement

The U.S. is in the midst of another Jesus People Movement, like that of the late 60’s and early 70’s. In a sense, prior to now, it seems that we have been in a “prophetic lull” in which the Lord has been quiet concerning the future, but this has been in God’s strategic plan. For behind the scenes He has been preparing a new generation of leaders that have a double-portion anointing on them. They are the new Jesus People and they are an unstoppable army with passion and compassion – passion for the lost and compassion for those who are enslaved by poverty, human trafficking and other injustices.

There is a divine convergence of the anointing of the past moves of God with the strength and vitality of the present, and these Jesus People will far exceed even the great generals of the past. Cities that once had both governmental and historic revival anointings will be impacted. New Orleans will be a city that the Holy Spirit will visit in a special way.

These bright shining stars will burst upon the scene in the nations of the earth. They are going to begin to operate in miracles such as this present generation has only read about, dreamt about, and prayed to see happen. Hospitals across the world will become open to having healing rooms for prayer. As intercession is released for the medical community and researchers, new medical breakthroughs for cancer and other seemingly incurable diseases will be released from heaven.

The news media will be gripped by what they see. Stories will be verified. The sports mountain or sector will continue to be impacted and the move of God among players will escalate. Whole teams will be seen “taking two” and kneeling down to pray, both before and after games. Even opposing teams will be seen doing his, and the liberal press will not be able to intervene because of the sway of public opinion. Even as in the Welsh revival, in which sports games were affected, so it will be at this time.

Unreached regions of the world will open up – regions that have been largely unevangelized. It is truly harvest time. This Jesus People movement will have a kingdom focus and a reformational mindset that will lead to transformation.

Harvest and Stadiums

New mantles will fall even as they did upon Billy Graham, and stadiums will be filled. Great faith will arise for the finances for these events. They will be used of God to spark moves of the Lord in whole cities. A new sound of worship will arise out of these stadiums that will have the Body of Christ singing harvest songs. They will be sent out with the anointing to harvest the nations.

Psalm 133 Unity

A new move of unity will come to the Church, particularly among the youth on campuses and in the House of Prayer movements. Their adherence will be to the Lord Jesus rather than to a denomination. We received an admonition to beware of deception and Satan trying to bring division into these movements.

Admonition to the Prophetic
Movement

There has been a weariness that has come into the prophetic movement. This is a time to re-fire your passion for God and not to pull back into your comfort zone. There is even a testing coming to the prophets to see who will be moved into a larger measure of visibility in the future.

The United States’ Original Colonies

The original 13 colonies of the U.S are going to receive a special visitation from God in the coming years. The “Prince of Greece” of secular humanism that has affected the Ivy League universities is going to come down and the beginnings of a Third Great Awakening will take place in such colleges as Harvard and Yale.

Governmental Intercession

There is going to be a fresh move of God to pray for governments across the face of the earth. In the past season, there has been a widespread understanding of what became known as “harp and bowl” intercession, based on Revelation 5:8:

“And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.”

In this coming season, God is going to mainstream into the House of Prayer movement a type of governmental intercession currently known in some intercessory circles as “Crown and Throne” intercession, wherein the Lord wants us to make covenant with Him to establish His throne of authority in worship and waiting before Him. From this, His governance can be manifested in the earth.

This would mirror on earth what happens in heaven as written in
Revelation 4:10-11:
“The twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:
“’You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.’”

This depicts the recognition by thrones and dominions that God is worthy to receive the glory and honor and power of those thrones and dominions by right of creation, and the fact that what heaven is modeling should be recognized by thrones (nations) on earth.

There was a sense that God is going to discipline earthly leaders who have decided that they are going to move the boundaries that the Lord, Himself, has set up for the governance of nations.

Children’s Movement

Reports are coming in from around the world of the anointing for prophetic utterance falling upon little children in places like France. There was an outpouring upon the children of the Huguenots in the late 1600’s and it is happening again. A new Samuel generation is arising and small children as young as two to ten years old will prophesy! They will receive key visions and dreams that will give direction even to the adults in their lives.

There are babies in the womb now and those just being born who are “revival babies.” God has given a unique anointing and giftedness to these very special little ones.

The Threshing Floor

During this season of harvest and revelation, there is going to come a threshing. Harvest always involves a time of separating the wheat from the chaff. God is going to deal with spiritual deception and false doctrine. We must watch and pray against deception.

We all realized that the intercessory movement, in general, has gone through a season of great weariness. However, the Lord will pour out upon the prayer movements a new vitality to “thresh in prayer” and see our nations align with God’s purposes during this new season.

The threshing floor was always built in a place to catch the wind. The teaching gift will bring a new, fresh wind of God along with the signs, wonders, and miracles. The chaff, as it were, of unbelief is going to be blown away.

Grace will come upon the Church to build in this time in order to have “silos” to keep the harvest. Many who have believed for property and new space will see that this is the time to move out in faith and God will supernaturally provide.

There was an admonition given to watch against Satan trying to divide and scatter the Church in the midst of the fresh wind of God blowing in this season. We must “guard our threshing floors” or churches, homes and places of ministry.

Symbolically, the threshing floor was the place where David made sacrifice to break the curse upon the nation. There is coming a deep conviction of giving one’s life as well as finances to build the Kingdom on many levels. This will include a move of God for world harvest.

Robbing Spirit

Satan has brought great attacks against the Body of Christ to “rob” us and cause us to believe that God does not hear and that there are certain things that are “just life.” This robbing spirit wants to get us to accept second best instead of God’s highest for our lives.

There is a special anointing in this year of the double to command that Satan pay back what he has robbed from us. Flu Season We feel that Satan is going to try and release a new strain of flu to break out, that is quite virulent – and we must both pray and guard against its effects.

Corruption

Corruption will be exposed among government officials and some who have felt they were immune to being seen will be revealed as liars.

Corruption will be exposed in some mining industries, including coal mining.

Stand on Guard

The Houses of Prayer need to mobilize strategically to stand on guard for their nations at this time. We must stand on guard and not allow our prayer movements to become weary, but remain watching on the wall.

New super storms will try to develop and God is giving new authority to intercessors to legislate against them. Be aware and stand on guard.

The Church needs to be alert and sensitive – stand on guard in order to restrain things done in secret that will attempt to adversely affect our nations.

Double Restitution

The law of restitution will have a particular significance in this year as we go to the court of heaven for justice.

Exodus 22:4, 7, 9
“If the stolen animal is found alive in his (a thief’s) possession — whether ox or donkey or sheep — he (the thief)must pay back double.

“If a man gives his neighbor silver or goods for safekeeping and they are stolen from the neighbor’s house, the thief, if he is caught, must pay back double.

“In all cases of illegal possession of an ox, a donkey, a sheep, a garment, or any other lost property about which somebody says, ‘This is mine,’ both parties are to bring their cases before the judges. The one whom the judges declare guilty must pay back double to his neighbor.”

Job 42:10
“And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.” These verses all show that restitution was to be paid double. This is very significant as 2014 is the year of the double.

An admonition was given to call back, with a double portion, those things Satan has robbed us of in the past years. Many have lost much financially in the last number of years and this is a time for both restoration and restitution. Double return of lost finances should be called in and this will manifest for many in the next few years.

Worship Movement

The Tabernacle of David will begin to come together with a “Circuit Riders Movement” as worship and evangelism begin to function together as prophesied in Acts 15:16. Local churches will begin to incorporate 24/7 prayer into the life of the Church.

Acts 15:16
“After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up.”

7 Mountains Movement

Hollywood

Kingdom influence in this mountain will increase in the coming years. The mountains of arts/entertainment and media will see huge strides as young directors and filmmakers make their voices heard in a non-religious way that will bring wholesome content to the theaters.

Young film graduates will launch undercover film projects which will ultimately expose social injustices. These will rally people to take action against what was once being done in darkness.

Mentoring connections will come together in the industry and Bible studies will spring up among those in media and film.

Family

Families will begin to pray together once again. Fathers will rise up and begin to pray both with and for their children each day. It is time to light the family altar. Restoration of families in fulfillment of Malachi 4:6 will escalate and the prodigals will return to the Lord.

Malachi 4:6
“And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

Business

New leadership in this mountain will arise and put structures in place in a way that would be system disruptors. God is going to release greater revelation to the Christian business sector. Witty innovations will be created which will produce dramatic results. For example, there will be a rise of disruptive technology in Africa that will aid clean water projects throughout the continent.

Transfer of Wealth

Revelation regarding the transfer of wealth will also take on a new scale as those who have accumulated wealth begin to move into the seven mountains. This is already happening in a covert way and there will be surprise “take-overs” of some major media outlets – from news magazines, newspapers and television outlets.

New forms of philanthropy will arise and believers will burst to the top of their mountains almost out of nowhere.

Many Josephs are coming to the end of their testing. There is a linking of funding from Asia to the right people in other nations who will strategically channel the funds.

Medical inventions will also come forth that will bring both healing to many and finances into the business sector.

God is going to increasingly reveal new disruptive technological innovation to kingdom minded marketplace leaders, which will release wealth. Coupled with this wealth creation, new economic strategies for the elimination of systemic poverty will be voiced by many in the Christian business community.

Words for Nations

Middle East

Israel

There is a coming move of God among the children and youth in Israel. We felt that the Lord has allowed the situation with Iran to continue for a season to cause an awakening in Israel.

Islam

A continued division between the Sunni and Shia denominations of Islam will escalate. This division will give a remarkable open door for the gospel to be spread by the Church in the Middle East as the contrast between light and dark, Jesus and Islam, is going to be seen. The prayer movement of Isaiah 19 will emerge in a stronger way than ever before.

Large numbers of Muslims are both coming and going to come to the Lord. There are 22 new houses of prayer in Egypt.

A warning was given that a drought is coming to both the Euphrates and the Nile so prayer is needed.

Iran

Iran’s nuclear power is like a Tower of Babel that will eventually topple.

Syria, Lebanon, Northern Iraq

Beauty for ashes is coming for the people of God in this region. Little children will have visitations from God, even in the refugee camps.

Egypt

We see a continued shaking for a season but this will cause the old worship structures to begin to topple. These will occur in “suddenlies.” It is important to align with Egypt in prayer as this strategic nation will become a shining light for the Lord and “out of Egypt” will come a great move of God that will impact the nations of the earth.

Europe

An awakening movement is beginning to ignite Europe. France, as mentioned earlier, is stirring to awaken. The wells of revival in Wales, Scotland, and Ireland will re-open and this will cause England to look and see what God is doing and be impacted by their moves of God.

Netherlands

A new generation of Abraham Kuypers is going to touch this nation and the Netherlands will arise to a new position of authority. There is an admonition to the Church to come into a new level of unity and the love of the brethren. Satan will try to split the Body of Christ wide open and stop the nation from moving to this level of authority, so prayer is needed.

Asia

China

China will continue to increase. The one-child policy will continue to crumble and its end will signal a new season of fruitfulness upon the whole continent.

University campuses will be touched by the power of God across China.

Japan

There is a new generation of Japanese leaders who are going to be passionate to see their nation touched by the power of God. Watch and see them arise and even impact the international scene.

Korea

The Church that has plateaued in Korea will begin to grow. Evangelists will come to the front. The film and music industry will experience a powerful moving of the Holy Spirit.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong must come to the forefront concerning finances and economic strategies that will impact the world.

Mongolia

Look to see this nation burst upon the scene in influence across all the face of the earth.

Rim of Fire Nations

The nations known as “Rim of Fire” or “Ring of Fire” will become ablaze for God. The Philippines, Indonesia, and other islands of the sea will “erupt” with a move of God. It is harvest time. This, of course, will take place over differing periods of time.

The House of Prayer movement from Indonesia will send missionaries across the Middle East and the face of the earth in such closed areas as North Korea and God will give supernatural favor to these “prayer missionaries.”

Brazil

Things will continue to shake but with these shakings the Church is going to arise and impact the whole nation in many levels of society.

The Mediterranean Region

Greece is going to arise out of its intense shakings as the power of the prince of Greece is being broken and the prayers of the saints for this historic and important nation are manifested. Many Mediterranean areas will begin to experience sparks that will become flames of fire. It is critical to pray for protection against terrorism concerning the sea borders in the Mediterranean.

Washington State Government Officials

Washington Root 52 State Prayer Guide

State Motto: Hope for the Future (Chinook Indian Word)

Preamble: We the People of the State of Washington, grateful to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe for our liberties, do ordain this Constitution.

Washington is the 42nd State: Washington came into the union on November 11, 1889.    Our  forefathers, the Pilgrims, set out for the new world to establish a land of religious freedom.  On November 11, 1620, they signed the Mayflower Compact, entering into covenant with Jesus Christ by dedicating our land and government to “the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian Faith.” When they stood against injustice, a nation of awakening was birthed.  We in the state of Washington are declaring that we are a State of Awakening, when we came into the union on 11-11-1889!  As Jesus spoke to Lazarus in John 11:11, “our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I go to awaken him!”  We are believing for a massive Christ-awakening, a 3rd Great Awakening to erupt in our state, where God’s Spirit would use God’s Word to Re-awaken God’s people back to God’s Son for all that He is!  From this cornerstone state of America we are praying that Christ would be the cornerstone, the Rock of the Ages! The largest chandelier in the world sits in our nation’s capital, and we are praying that the brilliance and light of the Glory of Christ, as THE CHANDERLIER of heaven would shine across this land from sea to shining sea, from coast to coast, from Washington to Washington!

Washington State Declaration of Dependence on God: This was signed and affirmed by several prominent church/government leaders in our state.  This was declared publicly at this year’s National Day of Prayer event at the capital May 6th, 2010!  See copy at the end of this prayer guide.

From Washington to Washington: Our state was named after George Washington.  A graft was taken from the Elm tree where George Washington was inaugurated, and this was placed in Olympia.  We now have a large Elm tree representative of his legacy at our states capital.  During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln placed a strategic war-room and city of refuge on the West coast based in Port Angeles.  Washington was the first state to vote to legalize abortion by the vote of people (Ref. 20, Nov. 3rd, 1970) before it ended up affecting the entire nation through Roe-v-wade.  As Washington is called the Evergreen State, we are praying that from Washington to Washington, God would uproot this tree of death through the innocent shedding of blood, and plant a tree of Life, the Lord Jesus Christ!  We are praying for God-glorifying, Christ-exalting, gospel-dominated, prayer saturated churches to the Glory of God!  Just as the Antioch Adoption Ministry was birthed in Washington, we are praying for hundreds of adoption centers and crisis pregnancy centers to rise up in Washington State.   We are praying that this year 2010 would be the end of a 40yr cycle of death (1970-2010).  We are praying that God would release his breath of Life as in Ezekiel 37 to deal with 73(37 years after 1973 is 2010).  As Chuck Pierce prophesied in 2003 that Washington is the ‘Whirlwind State’ we are praying that God’s breath would come like the Sound of Mighty Rushing Wind, bring down the spirit of abortion, and release an unprecedented Harvest of Life and Revival!  We are asking God to release a historic revival again in our day for the Spread of His Fame, for the Extension of His Reign, for the Increase of His Gain, and for the Honor of His Claim!

Covenant Root of Revival and Missions

Two statutes of prominent figures are placed in every state capital.  Our two statutes are Mother Joseph (the mother Teresa of Washington) and Marcus Whitman (missionary).  Our two statutes represent an intercessor (Mother Joseph) and a missionary (Marcus Whitman) who has a Bible under his hands.  Mission’s statistics tell us that more missionaries come from Washington State than any other state in the union!  From the healing ministry of John G. Lake based in Spokane, WA (today the international base of the International Healing Rooms) to the birthing of the Charismatic Renewal through Dennis Bennet in Seattle, to the launching of Women’s Aglow, to the Sentinel Group and George Otis Jr. transformation videos, this state is marked by God to bring forth revival, and send forth missionaries to the ends of the earth!  Even in the secular world there is a pioneering spirit over the state of Washington from Microsoft, to Boeing, to Starbucks, to Amazon.

We are praying for a mighty women’s movement to arise.  Chuck Pierce prophesied on Father’s Day 2008 at Sonrise Chapel about a women’s evangelistic movement rising in the Northwest!  We are praying that God gives Pierce County (Tacoma) a piercing revelation of the Pierced One, the Worthy Lamb who was slain.  Pierce county is the most unchurched county per capita, in the nation. We are believing for a glorious youth awakening to arise through Repossess (Olympia), to CCF (WWU), to UW, to SPU!  We are praying for God to break in to the First Nation’s Tribal lands (29 tribes) where less than 2 percent know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.  We pray, ‘Father give your Son the people of Washington State as his inheritance!”(Ps. 2:8)  May the Lamb receive the due reward of his sufferings!

Tabernacle of David Restored

One of the greatest strategies to release a great harvest of souls is see the tabernacle of David restored (Amos 9:11, Acts 15).  As a young man, David made a vow to dedicate his life to find a resting place or dwelling place for God. David’s life work was to establish a dwelling place for God in Jerusalem in his generation (Psalm 132:1-8). Our heart is that God would restore the ‘Tabernacle of God” in our state, combining both a priestly ministry of day and night, 24/7  prayer and worship through the Word, with a kingly anointing to see the gospel go forth in power and transform Washington State to the Glory of God!  We currently have 14 houses of prayers in Washington.  Let’s pray that God ignites a house of prayer in all 39 counties in Washington and that every church in Washington becomes a prayer-saturated church for all nations. May the nation see and declare over Washington, “The Lord is there.”

Strongholds

The primary strongholds over Washington State are Baal/witchcraft/jezebel.  The primary sin issues that have opened the door for these strongholds over the years are immorality(innocent shedding of blood, sexual immorality, pornography, human trafficking, child abuse, and divination through witchcraft, manipulation, false prophecy, free masonry and new age, etc).  Washington State is planned parenthoods banner state especially because of the funds that given through the Gates foundation and Starbucks.  We were the first state where Planned Parenthood tried to shut down the crisis pregnancy centers (unsuccessful, praise the Lord). We have two of the most prominent witchcraft centers in the nation, one in Yelm, WA, where they worship Ramtha, one in Index, WA, called the Aquarium Tabernacle Church.  This Wiccan church is one of the oldest in the county and has one of the largest Wiccan seminaries.  The twilight films were produced in Fork’s, WA as well.

Of the 13 treaties with the First Nations in Washington, all have been broken.  Most of them in Washington are related to ‘fishing rights.’  A dramatic turn of events took place in 1974 when Judge George Boldt presided over U.S. v. Washington. In this case the U.S. government filed a complaint against the State of Washington for its handling of the fishing rights controversy.

Judge Boldt held that the words “in common with” from Governor Stevens’ treaties meant to share equally the opportunity to take fish that would normally reach the off-reservation usual Indian fishing places. Thus each part-the Indians on the one hand the non-Indians on the other-is entitled to the opportunity to harvest up to 50 percent of the harvestable numbers of such fish. [1]

In their view the Treaties and Boldt’s decision simply affirmed what already had been. Actually this agrees very closely with what the U.S. Supreme Court has said when it has reviewed several cases resulting from these treaties. The court has basically ruled that the treaties were a trade of certain right from tribes to the United States to preserve other rights the tribes already possessed and wanted to retain.[2] Further, the courts have said that when trying to resolve ambiguous language or expressions in a treaty with the Native Americans that they must interpret the treaties as the tribes themselves would have understood the terms used.

We have gleaned much wisdom from our honorable Bev Kloop who has helped lead the charge in our state for praying for the 1st Nations.  Bev has developed an Esther intervention fast that we have been using for many years.   I highly recommend that you get a copy of her prayer guide.  Please email her athbklopp@earthlink.net, to receive a copy.   Many attempts at reconciliation have been documented well by Bev Kloop in this guide.

In mapping both Seattle and Olympia many key ley lines have been discovered (a majority of them have been established through the arts).  Olympia is laid out much like Washington D.C. influenced by free-masonry design and structure.  We believe that a key to binding and bringing down these Baal/witchcraft/jezebel influenced strongholds will be through the Arts and Media sphere!   May God raise up anointed singers, musicians, artists, craftsmen, sculptors, dancers, etc, in the Northwest!  We are praying for the hearts of the fathers to turn to the children and the hearts of the children to turn to the Fathers to release an Elijah Revolution that confront this jezebel spirit. And we are praying for a generation of Jehu’s who walk in sexual purity and the truth and power of God’s written Word to bring her down (Rev. 2:18-29).  As the light of the Glory of God in face of Christ increases through day and night prayer and worship combined with a kingly anointing, we will see these demonic strongholds dislodged from this region!

We stake a Claim in the midst of the Whirlwind for the Glory of the Lamb through every sphere in society in Washington State.  May God  “Wash” Washington, “a ton”  through the blood of his Son.  Jesus we plead your blood over our sins and the sins of our state.  God end abortion and send Revival to Washington!  Amen!

Operation Rolling Thunder Strategy

We believe another powerful strategy that God has raised up and is using in Washington State to help increase prayer, connect, mobilize and unite the body of Christ is called Operation Rolling Thunder (ORT).  Operation Rolling Thunder (ORT) is based upon Psalm 18.  King David cried out to God and then God thundered from heaven as He uttered His voice and scattered David’s enemies.  Beginning on the National Day of Prayer each year, churches sign up for one 24hr period of prayer from the national day of prayer to the Global Day of Prayer.  Each county/city/church finds key leaders in each of the 7 spheres/gates/mountains in society and ask for specific prayer requests that would produce measurable results. This strategy has been marked with incredible signs and wonders.  We believe it is a key strategy to see Washington State transformed to the Glory of God!  In Whatcom county we have used this strategy since 2005, and today we have 31 local churches that each take a day to pray a 24hr period each month(24/7 prayer is now established at the local church level) and have 7 transformation teams that give us specific prayer targets of things to pray for each month!  We have seen many results through this strategy of increased church growth, church plants, unemployment rates dropping, record number of adoptions, and a decrease in the number of abortions!  I encourage you to check out further testimonies atwww.watchmanministries.com as we get ready to launch another year, Operation Rolling Thunder 2011!

  1. Thank you! I will pass this info on to our intercession team. We are interested in being a part of the 24/7 prayer, also.

  2. Your rpnca.org site says this “We currently have 14 houses of prayers in Washington. Let’s pray that God ignites a house of prayer in all 39 counties in Washington … May the nation see and declare over Washington, ‘The Lord is there.’”

    Q: Who can tell me the location of the houses of prayer in the Puget Sound area. I am especially interested in the following as I have associates and/or feel a calling to influence each.
    San Juan Co., Island Co., Skagit Co., Snohomish Co., Whatcom Co. and King Co.

    I have recently had a calling to help establish the Tabernacle of God in the Seattle region. I am not yet sure of the role God wants me to fill, but as I seek Him I would also like to have the names of others who feel as similar burden. People who are finding success in establishing houses of prayer will have wisdom and knowledge.

    —————————I am passionate about the following ——————————-
    rpnca.org: “Our heart is that God would restore the ‘Tabernacle of God’ in our state, combining both a priestly ministry of day and night, 24/7 prayer and worship.” I feel a a special calling to creating an atmosphere of hospitality toward Holy Spirit.

Utah derives its name from the Ute Native American Tribe, or possibly from the Navajo word “upper.”

Preamble of Utah ConstitutionGrateful to Almighty God for life and liberty, we, the people of Utah, in order to secure and perpetuate the principles of free government, do ordain and establish this CONSTITUTION.

God’s Redemptive Purposes for Utah

(Quoted excerpts taken from The Utah State Flag:  A Guide for Redemptive Prayer for Utah, by Mark Francis, Heaven’s Dawn Ministries. Other material in this section adapted from Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation, by Chuck Pierce & Dutch Sheets).

Prophetic blessing of “walking in and living a prophetic lifestyle, being filled with both the fruit and gift of faith, listening to God’s revelation, and expressing His heart with excellence and purity.”

Evangelistic Blessing characterized by a “life-style, personal evangelism where every sector of society can be entered with God’s love and message of hope.” Utah is to be a place for discipleship for believers called to missions.

Restoration of women characterized by the release of women in the full potential of their God-given giftings, operating in the full authority He has given them.

Blessing of Prosperity flowing from the rich fertile land of the Great Basin. This prosperity is intended by God to bless not only Utah, but those outside our state thorough our generosity.

Prophetic Word For Utah

Chuck Pierce prophesied to Utah on February 16, 2004 that a different sound would come from Utah that would begin to penetrate through the entire nation. He prophesied that it would be an “unlocking sound,” “the sound of harvest” coming to Utah.  He gave us direction to begin having corporate worship services where we “ascend in worship and descend in warfare.”  He prophesied that these worship services would start with a one-hour time of worship and progress to two hours, three hours, etc., until we are able to engage in a 12-hour corporate worship event.  This strategic worship would release this sound coming forth and break through the veil. (Excerpted from Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation, by Chuck Pierce and Dutch Sheets).

Please pray with us that we rise to the call to genuine, heartfelt worship of the Lord in this manner and to remove any barriers to worship within us and within our state.

History of Utah

The History of Utah indicates the strong pioneering spirit of both the Native People and of those who traveled to the far West of the U.S. territory.

Early Native People-Earliest Native People were the Anasazi, and Fremont tribes. About 1000 years ago Native People including the Shoshones, Utes, Southern Paiutes, and Goshutes began moving to Utah, as did the Navajos.

Timeline of Early History and Exploration of Utah

1776 Spanish priests, Silvestre Velez de Escalante and Francisco Atanasio Dominguez seek a new route from New Mexico to California and explore Utah.

1821 Mexico wins independence from Spain and claims Utah.  Spanish and Mexican traders barter actively in Utah.

1824 Jim Bridger discovers the Great Salt Lake.  American and British trappers meet for annual rendezvous.

Later Timeline of Utah-

1830 Joseph Smith organizes the “Church of Christ” the predecessor of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) in Fayette, New York.

1847 On July 24 the first party of Mormon pioneers arrive in the Salt Lake Valley to establish a new home free of religious persecution.  (LDS leaders desired to claim an actual territory.  Doing so would serve to isolate them from the rest of the U.S.)

1849 Constitution convention proposes the State of Deseret, which encompasses the entire Great Basin.

The Mormon Church initiates the Primary Emigration Fund (PEF) primarily to help Mormon refugees from Nauvoo, Illinois, migrate to Utah. It also became a major instrument for gathering Latter-day Saint converts to Utah from abroad, assisting some 26,000 immigrants between 1852 and 1887.

1850 On September 9 the U.S. Senate passes a bill providing for the organization of Utah Territory (rejecting the name Deseret and shrinking its borders).

1851 LDS Church president Brigham Young becomes the first governor of the Utah Territory.

In planning the eventual settlement of Utah, the Legislative Assembly designated the remote Pauvant Valley as the site of the territorial seat of government, the surrounding area Millard County, and intended to create a capital city called Fillmore.

1852 LDS Church’s revelation on celestial marriage (polygamy) was first made public.

1853 Brigham Young broke ground for the Salt Lake Temple.

Walker War with the Ute Indians begins over slavery.

1856 Salt Lake City is officially designated as the capital of the territorial Utah. (Original plan for Fillmore is rejected).

1857 The Mountain Meadow massacre took place.  Arkansas and Missouri immigrants on their way to California were killed in Iron County, Utah.

1847-1858 The practice of polygamy causes conflict with the Federal Government.   President James Buchanan removes Brigham Young as governor. And a 2500-man military force is sent to accompany the new governor to the territory, thus starting the Utah War.

1859 First Episcopal Church service was held in Salt Lake City.

The first Masonic lodge is organized.

1861-1862 The third movement for statehood is begun.

1865-1868 Ute Black Hawk War (the last major Indian conflict in Utah).

1873 Poland Act passed in Congress making it legal to prosecute Mormons’ for practicing polygamy.

1890 LDS Church President Wilford Woodruff issues the Manifesto ending LDS Church-sanctioned polygamy and threatened excommunication for members who still practice it.  However, some Mormons did continue the practice relocating to Mexico to do so.  In the 1930′s polygamy experienced resurgence due to publication of the claims of Lorin C. Woolley.  Woolley details a spiritual visitation by deceased Joseph Smith, Jr., received by then LDS president John Taylor.  Smith indicated that the practice of polygamy should indeed continue and a group covenant was made to that effect.  This is the root of the Fundamentalist or Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or FLDS.  For additional information follow this link: http://www.mormonismi.net/artikkelit/polygamy.html

Half of Salt Lake City’s 45,000 residents are non-Mormons as the flood of twenty million immigrants coming to the United States–in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries–find its way to Utah.

1896 Utah becomes the 45th state on January 4, Heber M. Wells governor.

1942-1945 Topaz Japanese-American Internment Camp operates near          Delta, housing 8000 people.  (In 1990 President George H. Bush issued a formal apology for those interred, and monetary compensation for those interred).

1981 State law requires parental notification for minors seeking an abortion.  (In addition, Utah places the following restrictions on abortion: a waiting period prior to receiving an abortion; that women receive counseling prior to their abortion; ban on partial birth abortions; prohibits use of public funds to pay for abortions).

Restoration from Sin in Utah’s Past

Utah history reveals the breaking of covenant with Native People, including slavery, and shedding of innocent blood. These sins were also committed against other settlers of the area.          Prayer point:  We need the strategy of God to rightly deal with these issues to bring cleansing of the land and restoration with the people.

Isolationism is a theme in Utah’s history.  Prayer point:  This still affects the people of Utah.  Agree with us for unity and Godly fellowship between people and within the Church.

Religiosity and striving to achieve spirituality are serious issues that affect the people of Utah due to the influence of Mormon doctrine. These foundations also exalt men and oppress women.  Depression amongst women is a widespread problem in Utah.  Prayer point:  Pray for release of true worship brought forth by the Spirit of God.  Agree with us for the release of women and men into the freedom God intends.

Polygamy is practiced today.  There is an attempt to mainstream this sinful lifestyle by some.  Prayer point:  Agree with us for the release of those caught within this structure.

The Topaz internment camp brought sorrow, rejection, and isolation to those Japanese-Americans held there.  Prayer point:  Repentance involving former residents of the camp, or at least their descendants is needed. This will involve forming relationships rather than ‘enacting repentance’.  Agree with us that the Lord will give us wisdom and His heart of compassion and understanding as we endeavor for forgiveness and reconciliation.

Agree With Us in Blessing the People of Utah

Let us bless Utah in the “spiritual DNA” God has given the people and the land.  We would see these particular distinctions existing at the foundational levels throughout Utah’s society, culture and relationships. The essence of these distinctions are meant to manifest as significant influencers in every level of Utah’s future history. As we bless and align with ourselves with these and other aspects of Utah’s spiritually inherited DNA, the transformation will come more quickly and the substance of change will deepen.

Cornerstone DNA virtues for Utah upon which all others are built upon:

  • Walking and living a prophetic lifestyle
  • Seeking and Honoring God’s present revelation and open heaven over this state
  • Extraordinary Pioneering and Creativity
  • Deep & Lasting Relationships framed by Kingdom culture

Other Important DNA Virtues:

  • Kingdom Mindedness with Eyes for the Nations of the World
  • Warrior Farmers who can both fight and plant life regardless of the  season
  • Possessing, Manifesting and Carrying the freely offered transforming grace of Christ’s cross and resurrection for redemption

Evidence of the Blessing Emerging

]Recently Newsweek magazine published an article describing the prosperity and abundance found in Utah’s culture.  Despite the economic downturns, Utah has experienced unprecedented growth and prosperity.  Utah’s highly educated workforce, culture that embraces family values, and work ethic contribute to this explosive growth.  The article can be accessed at: http://www.newsweek.com/2010/11/08/how-utah-became-an-economic-zion.html

Oregon Root 52 State Prayer Guide

HISTORICAL OVERVIEW OF THE STATE OF OREGON

Oregon’s History: European exploration of the Pacific Northwest from the late 1500s through the 1700s led to multiple and overlapping territorial claims by Spain, Russia, France, Britain, and last but not least, the new American republic. At issue was the vast “Oregon Country” extending along the Pacific Coast from the northern edge of Spanish California on the 42nd parallel to the southern edge of “Russian America” (now Alaska) at 54 degrees 40 minutes north.

How this area became known as “Oregon” is not clear. Some have suggested that the word originated in the Mississippi Valley; others surmise that it stems from the French word for storm, ouragan, or the Spanish words oye agua, meaning “hear the water.” Most historical accounts agree that English Army Major Robert Rogers first wrote the term “Ouragon” in an unsuccessful 1765 petition to explore the American West. American Captain Jonathan Carver used “Oregon” to refer to the fabled “River of the West” in his 1778 book, Travels Through the Interior Parts of North America.

In 1803, Thomas Jefferson referred to “Oregon” in his instructions to Meriwether Lewis for the Lewis and Clark expedition. The name gained wide exposure and an almost mythical aura when William Cullen Bryant used the name Oregon in his poem “Thanatopsis,” published in 1817.

Most European nations had retreated from Oregon by the early 1800s, leaving only Great Britain and the United States to vie for the tract. Britain’s claim to “New Albion” dated from the late 1700s, thanks in large part to Captain George Vancouver’s expedition, and was reinforced by the traders and “factors” (agents) of the Hudson’s Bay Company. The pendulum swung toward the American position after Captain Robert Gray crossed the Columbia bar on May 11, 1792, followed by the 1804-1806 Lewis & Clark expedition and the establishment of Fort Astoria in 1811.  When the War of 1812 was settled at Ghent on December 24, 1812, Britain and the U.S. agreed to form a joint commission to resolve boundary disputes. One result of that agreement was the Treaty of Joint Occupation of Oregon, signed on October 20, 1818. American and British citizens in Oregon then went about their business, mostly without incident. The joint occupancy treaty was renewed in 1827. During this period of cohabitation, British and American citizen groups met often to discuss mutual needs and grievances. The most important of these church & civic gatherings were the “Wolf Meetings” at Champoeg on the lower Willamette River. On May 2, 1843, a vote of 52 to 50 favored a decision to organize into a civil community. On July 5th, this group adopted Oregon’s first Organic Laws.

After four India Chiefs walked 3000 miles on foot to St Louis in search of the “Book of Heaven” in their language, this story launched the “Macedonian Call of the West” and Americans streamed into the Oregon Country as Great Britain’s influence began to wane. Some extremists chanted “54-40 or Fight,” demanding that U.S. territory extend north of the 54th parallel. Despite this pressure, in the Oregon Treaty of June 15, 1846, the United States agreed to the 49th parallel, which established national boundaries “westward of the Rocky Mountains.”  Although the boundary issue appeared to be settled on land, disputes continued for nearly 30 years regarding which was the main channel of separation between American and British islands. The San Juan Islands boundary dispute was finally settled in 1872.

When Indians in what is now Eastern Washington killed settlers led by missionary Marcus Whitman in 1847, pressure increased on the federal government to provide protection and order in the region. Congress passed the “Act to Establish the Territorial Government of Oregon” on August 14, 1848.  Abraham Lincoln declined the territorial governorship and the job went to General Joseph Lane, fresh from the Mexican War. His hanging of five Indians accused in the “Whitman Massacre” signaled that law (if not justice) was finally being imposed in “Oregon Country.”  In 1853, Washington Territory split off from Oregon. Oregon and Washington were admitted to the union and became states in 1859 and 1889 respectively.

After a 100+ years of prayer, Pastor Aaron Auer of Reviving Oregon’s Amazing Roots discovered “Oregon First Pulpit Bible” in 2008 and has since then traveled to all 36 Counties of the State of Oregon declaring the Christian Heritage of the Oregon Territory.  (See www.roaroregon.org/ceremony.shtml for a short video of his presentation at the State Capital in Salem for the 150th Anniversary Celebration of Oregon’s statehood on February 14, 2009.)

Oregon’s Constitution: Article 1, Section 2: states that “All men shall be secure in the Natural right, to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences.”

Oregon’s State Flag: The Oregon state flag, adopted in 1925, is navy blue with gold lettering and symbols. Blue and gold are the state colors. On the flag’s face the legend “STATE OF OREGON” is written above a shield, which is surrounded by 33 stars. Below the shield, which is part of the state seal, is written “1859,” the year of Oregon’s admission to The Union as the 33rd state. The flag’s reverse side depicts a beaver. Oregon has the distinction of being the only state in The Union whose flag has a different pattern on the reverse side. The dress or parade flag has a gold fringe, and the utility flag has a plain border.

Oregon’s State Seal: The state seal consists of an escutcheon, or shield, supported by 33 stars and divided by an ordinary, or ribbon, with the inscription “The Union.” Above the ordinary are the mountains and forests of Oregon, an elk with branching antlers, a covered wagon and ox team, the Pacific Ocean with setting sun, a departing British man-of-war signifying the departure of British influence in the region and an arriving American merchant ship signifying the rise of American power. Below the ordinary is a quartering with a sheaf of wheat, plow and pickax, which represent Oregon’s mining and agricultural resources. The crest is the American Eagle. Around the perimeter of the seal is the legend “State of Oregon 1859.” On September 17, 1857, the Constitutional Convention adopted a resolution that authorized the U.S. president to appoint a committee of three-Benjamin F. Burch, L.F. Grover and James K. Kelly-to report on a proper device for the seal of the state of Oregon. Harvey Gordon created a draft, to which the committee recommended certain additions that are all incorporated in the state seal.

Oregon’s State Motto: “She Flies With Her Own Wings” was adopted by the 1987 Legislature as the Oregon state motto. The phrase originated with Judge Jessie Quinn Thornton and was pictured on the territorial seal in Latin: Alis Volat Propriis. The new motto replaces “The Union,” which was adopted in 1957.

Oregon’s Native Americans: Population estimate: 52,000 in 5 reservations, wherein there are Ten federally-recognized tribes:  Burns Paiute Tribe,  Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians, Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, Confederated Tribes of Siletz, Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Reser-vation, Coquille Indian Tribe, Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Indians, Fort McDermitt Paiute-Shoshone (Nevada, Oregon) Klamath Tribe & one federally-recognized tribal community: Celilo Village, located near The Dalles.

Oregon’s Incorporated Cities: 242 with the Largest Populations (2007) in 1. Portland (568,380), 2. Eugene (153,690), 3. Salem (152,290)  4. Gresham (99,225), 5. Hillsboro (88,300) & 6. Beaverton (84,270).

Oregon’s Counties Total: 36 with the Largest Populations (2007) in 1. Multnomah (710,025), 2. Washington (511,075), 3. Clackamas (372,270), 4. Lane (343,140) & 5. Marion (311,070).

OREGON’S REVIVAL HISTORY & FUTURE

The Portland Revival (March 1905): Envision a typical busy workday in the Rose City’s downtown core suddenly coming to a halt at midday. Thousands of employees and customers alike stream out of Nordstrom, NikeTown, the KOIN Center, and hundreds of other businesses and make their way to the Keller or Schnitzer auditoriums or any number of other venues. They go with a single-minded purpose.  To spend time hearing about Jesus Christ. To listen to His Word. To devote their hearts to God.  Sound improbable or impossible? Change the names of the businesses and the meeting locations to what they were 100 years ago, and you have a true story that took place in Portland, Oregon in 1905.  It happened that spring, an outgrowth of a worldwide revival that began in Wales, and it is more than well documented. A Portland woman, Hildene Westerlund, today readily shares the newspaper clippings of that era that she has collected. She contacted the Christian News Northwest in hopes of reminding readers that the events of a century ago indeed took place in a city not known today for its devotion to Jesus.  “Army of Christians Marches About City,” proclaimed the top of the Oregon Journal newspaper’s front page of Friday, March 31, 1905. “At Midnight Nearly Ten Thousand People, Singing Hymns, Proclaim the Power of Revival.”  The Page 1 story detailed that it was “the unique night of Portland’s history – a shaking up such as the town had never known before.”  In a front-page editorial of that same issue, Edgar Hill of the Journal stated that the demonstration by the city’s believers was “the most impressive evidence of the strength, unity and aggressiveness of Christ-ianity in Portland that could possibly have been given … The city is in the throes of a religious upheaval such as it has never known in all its history.”  And the fervor continued. Five days later, on April 5, the Journal’s front page headline was “City Asks for Grace.” The accompanying story told how daytime business came to a literal standstill in the city while masses of people elbowed into four of the city’s largest auditoriums, or stood outside – as thousands did. Largest gatherings were at the Marquam Grand Theater.  “To the Christian the services were, as (visiting evangelist) Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman put it, “a foretaste of heaven,” reported the newspaper. “To the outsider they formed a marvelous exhibition of what an old-fashioned religious revival can accomplish when once it is in motion. “Jew and Gentile, Catholic and Christian, believers and unbelievers, met together and sang together.”  Revival historian, J. Edwin Orr records that in Portland, 240 major stores closed from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day to enable people to attend prayer meetings. The store owners signed an agreement so that no one would cheat and stay open.  Portland was not the only location in the United States touched by God’ s Spirit in an unusual way in 1905. For example, at Yale University, 25 percent of the student body was enrolled that year in prayer meetings and in Bible study. In Atlantic City, N.J., out of a population of 50,000, there were only 50 adults left unconverted, according to the city’s clergy.  According to Orr, the Welsh revival began as a movement of prayer and swept through Britain, Scandinavia, Germany, North American, Australia, Africa, Brazil, Mexico and Chile.  The Portland outpouring, while seen as a sovereign move of God, was assisted by the presence in the city of a team of evangelists led by Chapman, a New York Presbyterian. Among his group of 21 “moral crusaders” who arrived on the Southern Pacific railway were John P. Hillis, Rev. Henry Ostrom, Clarence B. Strause, R.A. Walton, W.E. Biederwolf, J.L. McComb, Charles Stelzle and Fred Butler. Many of them had been influential in a similiar move of God in Denver, Colo., and they came to Portland with great expectations of something similar happening here.  “Famous Revivalists Come to War with Flesh and Devil,” headlined the Journal on March 22, upon the evangelists’ arrival. The subhead read, “J. Wilbur Chapman Urges People to Get Ready to Be Saved.” The meetings were held in a wide range of denominational churches locally, including First Presbyterian, Centenary Methodist, Sunnyside Congregational, Calvary Baptist, Forbes Presbyterian Salvation Army and more. The newspaper reported that at least 50 churches throughout the city flew huge banners to indicate their support in the evangelistic effort.  “Chapman Campaign for Souls is in Full Swing,” proclaimed the March 24 edition of the Journal’s competition, The Oregonian.  In preparation for the evangelists’ meetings, about 100 cottage prayer meetings were held in the home of some prominent Portland residents.  Considering the heavily secular nature of today’s daily newspapers, a scan of the headlines in Portland’s newspapers published during the revival meetings clearly shows a different attitude prevailing in the 1905 newsrooms regarding the things of God.  “Revival Spirit Spreads Over City,” “Fighting the Devil,” “Say Goodbye to God and You Surely Die,” “Religion Vital as Blood in the Veins,” “With Help of God Will Follow Jesus,” “World Revival is Now at Hand” “Men and Women Go Weeping to Altar” “What Salvation Means to People,” “Be Sure Your Sins Will Find You Out,” and “Bible’s Message to the Everyday Man” were just a few examples of the dozens of newspaper articles that outlined the revival ‘s day-to-day events.  Now in her 80s, Westerlund developed an interest in the Portland revival through a course on historic revivals that she took in Bible college. She also had heard reports about the Portland event through local churches. She said the evangelists targeted their efforts to middle-age business men who otherwise had no interest in church. Her personal interest in seeing people reached for Christ was shown in her work as a Sunday School teacher to local children whose parents worked in shipyards during World War II, and also when she served as a secretary for Billy Graham’s 1950 crusade in Portland. Her hope is that remembering what happened a century ago in Portland might prompt a new generation to pray for a similar move of God in the Rose City. “I can tell that the Last Days are near,” she said. “I just want to be a tool to be used by God to reach more people for Him.” (By John Fortmeyer, Christian News Northwest, May 2005)

John G Lake (May 1920 on Mt Tabor in Portland, Oregon): “To my amazement, on approaching the building, high in the atmosphere a half a mile or more, I discerned millions of demons, organized as a modern army.  There were those who apparently acted as shock troops.  They would charge with ferocity, followed by a wave and yet another wave and yet another wave.  After a little while I observed there operated a restraining influence that constituted a barrier through which they could not force themselves.  With all the ingenuity of humans at war, this multitude of demons seemed to endeavor to break the barrier or to go further, but were utterly restrained.  In amazement, I said to the Angel, ‘What does it mean?’ He said to me, ‘Such is the care of God for those that strive in unselfishness for His Best.’  I discerned the heart of the Angel was overburdened.  In answer to this the Angel said, ‘Human selfishness and human pride have consumed and dissipated the very glory and heavenly power that God once gave from heaven to this movement as you have beheld tonight.’  We were now at the foot of the pathway again. He took a step or two away and in a sort of despair, my heart cried out, ‘Angel, these are all struggling for want of an ideal. What constitutes real Pentecost?  What ideal should be held before the minds of men as the will of God exhibited through a movement like this?’  During all this time I had carried my Bible in my hand.  Reaching for the Bible, he opened to the book of Acts, ran his finger down over the second page, that portion where the Spirit of God came down from heaven. Proceeding through the Book of Acts to its great, outstanding revelations and phenomena, he said, ‘This is Pentecost as God gave it through the heart of Jesus. STRIVE FOR THIS. CONTEND FOR THIS. TEACH THE PEOPLE TO PRAY FOR THIS. For this, and this alone, will meet the necessity of the human heart, and this alone will have the power to overcome the forces of darkness.’ As the angel was departing, he said: PRAY. PRAY. PRAY. Teach the people to pray. Prayer and prayer alone, much prayer, persistent prayer, is the door of entrance into the heart of God.”

Cindy Jacobs (July 23, 1997 at City Bible Church in Portland, Oregon): “…And the Lord would say to this city, “Have I not given you anointing to heal nations, and from this place” says God, “I’m going to raise up a strong prayer tower.  I’m going to raise up the watch that will come from this city.  The anointing from this watch will be the anointing to break New Age.  I’m going to bring forth an anointing from this city, I’m raising up intercessors, I’m raising up prophets, and the Word of the Lord will come forth.”  The Lord says, “I will tear down the idolatry to the occult, I will tear down the idolatry to humanism and the word will go out in the Spirit that no longer will this be a haven for New Age,” says God, “because I’m going to turn it around, and  I’m going to show forth my glory, because I am getting ready to manifest myself as the God of glory in this city.”  “I’m going to release a river of miracles.  I’m going to release signs and wonders.  I’m going to release creative miracles, I’m going to cause limbs to grow where there are no limbs, eyes to be grown where there are no eyes,” and God says, “I will even astound the medical profession,” and the Lord says, “there will even be a day, that you will see doctors line the platform and you will see them come, and you will see the crutches pile up and you will see the wheelchairs and the stretchers.”  “For I am doing a new thing,” says God,  “and I’m pouring out upon this generation, not just in one church, but I say upon the church of Portland, and the surrounding areas.  I’m going to cause my name to be glorified and people will come from the nations and they will come from far and wide to receive the impartation for the miraculous.  And,” says the Lord, “I’m going to begin to impart the anointing for signs and wonders and miracles.”  And the Lord says to you, “You have come hungry, and you have said, ‘where is the God of Elijah?’”  And the Lord says, “I will pour out the ‘Elisha anointing’ upon this generation of leaders [a double anointing]”  And the Lord says, “I will astound, I will astound the wisdom of the wise, and I am going to release a mixture of the prophetic, I’m going to release a mixture of miracles,”  And the Lord says, “I will cause this city to be a city of refuge, I will cause this city to be raised up as a standard.  It will be on CNN news, it will be in Newsweek International,” and the Lord says, “I am raising up a standard and from this place, I am going to not only heal bodies, but I’m going to heal this city,” says the Lord, “I’m going to heal the economy, to make out of this city a model that many people from governments, city governments from around the United States will be flying in because I am causing a new anointing to come on this city,” and the Lord says, “they will marvel because I’m going to be glorified in city government, I’m going to be glorified in the health and human services, I’m going to be glorified in the social services,” and God says, “look and see what I’m going to do because I am going to reverse the order,” and the Lord says,  “I’m going to put the government upon my shoulders and the lawgiver will go forth out of Zion,” says God.  And the Lord says, “Watch and see for anything you dream is too small.  Anything your believe,  I can do with this city is too small,” says God. And the Lord says, “In this next few months you’re going to begin to see even signs in the heavens.  I’m going to show dramatic things,” says God,  “to display my glory.”  And the Lord says to you, “I’m going to start exporting this around the world,” says God “and you’re going to go forth from this place with healing in your hands for I am going to rise with healing in my wings, I’m going to heal the education system, I’m going to heal the legal system, I’m going to transform this city,” says God “and I’m going to use it as a model for America and the nations.” …Over Portland we prophesy the miracles.  We say,  “The trumpet of the Lord is going forth in Jesus Name.”  The Lord says, “Isn’t this why Satan has come to devour and isn’t this why the thief has come to steal, kill and destroy?” “Do not be confounded by the increase of the warfare against you.  Do not be confounded because Satan is trying to discourage your soul.  He has caused the accuser of the brethren to rise up even against you that are in renewal.  There have even been those of your own household, those of the brethren that have said,  ‘I will not walk with you, if you walk that way.’”  But I would say to you,  “Trust and obey,”  because I say that, “I am raising up a leadership such as the earth has not seen before,” and the Lord says, “it will go forth in writing, it will go forth via satellite link up and I’m going to raise up that mighty house, I’m going to raise up prayer and healing schools – not just from one church, but it’s going to be spread across this city, and people will come in  and they’ll say no, I’m not just going to go here, I’m going to go there,” and the Lord says, “I’m going to do it so many places in this city, that the devil can’t stamp it out.”

Cindy Jacobs (March 2003 at City Bible Church in Portland, Oregon): And the Lord would say to the city of Portland, “Surely, I am going to fill you with My praises…I am going to saturate you with my praises.”  The Lord would say, “there is going to be a day and one day and I would say to you…Can a city be born in a day? and I would say, Yes a city can be born in a day.  For there is a day when worshippers will go up and down the river in boats.  There is a day that we will stand on street corners. They will fill Vancouver, Salem, Gresham and Portland.  I am going to fill the streets with my praises…not just in a March for Jesus but I am going to put a canopy over this area,” says God “and I as I begin to pavilion over this area,” says the Lord.  “There is going to be a time of unprecedented harvest such as you can never imagine.  For I am getting ready to come as the Great Harvester of the earth.  I am getting ready to come for there are multitudes in the valley of decision.”  So the Lord says, “Look and see.  For there is a turning of the page today.  There is turning of the new season today.  And I am rising up in your midst,” says the Lord.

Gwen Shaw (January 2007 in Washington, DC): “Yea, the Lord says, if thou has faith, as a mountain shall be laid down before you and become as nothing.  And thou shalt see thy glory come through thy city as in the days of John Lake, and where I used the city in those days for signs, wonders and miracles, as I use it again says the Lord, in the days of William Branham, when I called out in those meetings, My servant TL Osborn and his wife Daisy.  I will walk through the streets of Portland one more….(anointing STRONG)….one more time.  Even now, My angels are recording the names of those that are hungry of heart, whose souls are searching after Me, not for man’s honor, not for man’s greatness, nor for man’s recognition, but for the glory of God.  To be a city of visitation, where the Lord can indeed come through thy streets and where the children shall rise up and cry, Hosanna to the Son of David.  And thou shall see that thy city become even an Eastern gate to the nation, though it is in the west, but I say an eastern gate, because it was through the eastern gate that I entered the city of Jerusalem, saith the Lord, and I’ll move in your midst, and I shall shake Portland, Oregon with My Glory.  And refuge…..(heavy anointing)….refugees shall flee from the north…(praying in the Spirit)…they shall come from a northern city, to flee to thy city for refuge.  Be thou therefore prepared, for the influx thou shall have.  For the Lord said, it shall be beyond thy imagination, the Lord says, this thing is of Me, be equipt saith the Lord, spiritually and physically, for the thing for which I am about to do.  Have your watchmen on the walls yea, even the places your walls are weak, put them there, so that they might be ready and STAND WITH YOUR SWORD GIRDED AT YOUR SIDE, AT ALL TIMES.  Leave Me with one hand with the tools of the trade, and in the other hand with the sword of the Lord.”

Denny Cline (July 15, 2010 at Jesus Pursuit Church in Albany, Oregon): I believe this is what I saw.  This is the kind of revival that’s going to come – where God begins to simply arrest people with His presence.  It’s not about a series of meetings, or an anointed catalyst, although there may be those kinds of things happening.  When I looked at you (Kay Tolman of Restoration Gateway Ministries), I was reminded of a man that I met over at the Hebrides Islands, who has a seventeen year old boy who was in intercessory prayer along with some elderly women, interceding for revival to come to the Hebrides Islands.  In the kind of revival that came, God was simply arresting people with His power all over the area.  One here, one there.  People would get up in the middle of the night.  “What’s wrong?”  “I’ve got to find God.  If I don’t find God, I’m going to perish.”  I believe that that’s the kind of revival that’s going to happen.  Let’s agree with these guys.  We’re going to pray right now.  I want you to stand with me and agree.  We need this for the whole Northwest.  We don’t care where it starts!  Who cares where it starts, as long as we all get it!  Let it spread!  Let it be like days of old when Charles S. Price went up and down the northwest corridor.  And it wasn’t just him – people like T. L. Osborn, Kathryn Kuhlman, William Branham, and all kinds of people.  That was a healing movement.  But God wants to do something that’s an all saints’ revival that really is not about personalities, like Bobby [Haaby] said, but it’s really about the Body of Christ.  And we see a real move of God that shakes the whole Northwest and then begins to shake the whole nation.  And so Lord, we pray that You answer the cry of their heart, as they are in the secret place crying out, and then they go and release the sound of revival in Pioneer Square (for Praying4Portland in downtown Portland at 7am on 10/10/10).  Lord, Oregon territories were pioneered by men and women of God who risked their lives with the gospel to establish this whole territory as a place where Jesus Christ would be known as Lord and Savior of all.  And so Lord, we proclaim that that’s true.  We thank you for that heritage.  We thank You Lord, that You come again and that You remember Your mighty acts.  They say, “Remember Your mighty acts in Oregon.  Do it again, Lord!  Do it again, Lord!”  There are men and women who were nobodies at one time and now we know them in history books.  But at that time they were just men and women who risked their lives for the gospel.  The pioneer – a move of God in this state, and in this whole region called the Oregon Territories. And we say, Lord, as the sound is released, we want to see it this year, 2010.  Let an awakening begin!  Let it begin, Lord!  Let the sound be released and let it begin in the Oregon Territories again.  Let awakening, awakening, awakening, awakening be released, in the name of Jesus!  A kind of a God awakening that arrests people as they’re going to the marketplaces, they’re going to their jobs, as they’re going to their homes, as they’re sitting at tables as families – sudden restoration and reconciliation in families, the key to revival.  Family upon family, Lord.  One here, one there. But then all of a sudden, people are walking in the bars, with the presence of God.  People are going, “What are you doing here?  You don’t belong.” And you say, “Well, I just came to visit,” and the power of God will fall, even in the bars, and it’ll fall in the schools, it’ll fall in the businesses, it’ll fall in the streets.  We agree with them in the name of Jesus for a mighty release of power and a great awakening, in Jesus’ name.  Thank you, Lord.”

Jim Moore (August 17, 2010 for the Salem House of Prayer): Recently, following the Raindown Conference we did on August 6-8, 2010, I was given 2 consecutive dreams, in which I was shown a season that I believe we are about to enter into.  In the first dream I saw an angel of the Lord.  He was standing facing me and had his hand extended out to his side. He was drawing my attention to a small group of believers that I could not see but knew were there. Then he said: “Behold the sound of ‘Just Letting Go’”. There were 4 things I instinctively knew in the dream. I knew this group of people to be a worship band. That they represented the developing global worship movement. That the name of their band was not just a name, but a principle. That this marked the next phase of the fulfillment of the Lords promise to release “a new sound” into the earth through His church.  The second dream happened a day later. In it I saw a clock that was on military time. The kind that has 4 digits such as: 08:00 hours or 23:00 hours, etc. The time on the clock was 42:11 (which is not possible in the natural as we have only 24 hours in the day). I was wondering at the time, and suddenly understood that it was Isaiah 42:11. I understood that now we are about to enter into “military time” and that Isaiah 42 would give clarity to what that meant.  Isaiah 42:11-16 lays out a strategy of the Lord that is based around singing a new song, that will release a new sound. That sound will act as a weapon against His enemies. The Lord will begin now to rise up as a man of war. When I awoke it was 4:21 am.  The 2 dreams were intended to be connected. They are both speaking of the same primary issue of a new sound. I do not know all the nuances of this sound, how it will come to pass and all that it will entail. Many promises have been given about a new sound, especially here in the North West. In the construction of Isaiah chapter 42, verses 1-9 contain primarily what has come to pass through the earthly ministry of Jesus. It is a well know Messianic passage of Yeshua “My Servant, whom I uphold, My Chosen One in whom I delight” (verse 1). Verse 10 is where we are right now, and verses 11-20 are what is yet to come. In verse 9, it is as if the Spirit declares “see what I’ve done? Now I’ll show you what I’m going to do”. Then in verse 10, the Spirit speaks of something that is currently happening in our time. Singing a new song. In verse 9 he states “a new thing” and then in verse 10 says “a new song”. The connection is obvious. Now the time of singing has come, as it is prophetically stated in Song of Songs, “The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.” SOS 2:12.  The king challenged the bride to rise up, for the season of singing is upon you! Singing to the Lord is powerful. Demons hate it. God is moved by it. God is raising up a sound of worship like nothing ever heard before in the earth. The turtle-dove is singing. God’s Dove (the Holy Spirit) is singing through God’s Bride (the Church). Singing is becoming more and more a new sound, a prophetic and spontaneous sound. That sound will eventually fill all the earth. That’s the plan of God. It’s a simple plan. He inhabits praise. He wants to inhabit all the earth. So make all the earth a place of praise.  If God inhabits praise, and He intends on making the entire earth a place of His habitation, then all the earth will be filled with the sound of His praise. This is the global worship and prayer movement. All the earth will literally become His House of Prayer. He said “My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations” (Isa 56:7, Matt 21:13). To God, praise and prayer are two streams that flow out of the same fountain. The “harp and bowl” that has gone on in heaven throughout eternity still goes on today. People as individuals are God’s House. Churches are called God’s House. Cities are His House. Nations are His House. Ultimately the entire planet will be His House. It will be on earth as it is in heaven. The House of God, a House of Prayer.  Verses 11-20, speak of what the release of this new sound will accomplish in the earth. Praise will fill all the earth, routing all the powers of the enemy. The simplicity of the plan is based on the power of agreement with God. The greatest power in all the earth is to agree with God. To agree with who He says He is, and to agree with what He says He will do. Worship is agreeing with who God says He is. Intercession is agreeing with what God says He will do. Agreement with God systematically uproots and cancels out agreement with the enemy. The enemy is called “the accuser” of the brethren. Agreement with God cancels out the effects of the accusation of the enemy. He accuses day and night. He accuses us to God. He also accuses God to us. He does this without ceasing. Jesus will answer that day and night accusation with day and night worship and prayer. That agreement with God will ultimately cancel out every accusation of the enemy.

PRAYER GUIDE FOR THE ROOT 52 WEEK
(Thanks to Mildred Yamasaki, Kay Tolman & Lynn Hare)

Repentance: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14

Rejection of Father, Son and Holy Spirit   (Additional Prayer Focus – Family Mountain)

“But if they will confess their sins and the sins of their fathers–their treachery against me and their hostility toward me, which made me hostile toward them so that I sent them into the land of their enemies–then when their uncircumcised hearts are humbled and they pay for their sin, I will remember my covenant with Jacob and my covenant with Isaac and my covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land.” - Lev 26:40-42

Lord, You sought for a man among the city who would make a wall and stand in the gap before You on behalf of the land, that You should not destroy it.  We stand in the gap and seek forgiveness. We ask, Lord, according to all Your righteousness, that Your anger and fury would be turned away from Oregon.  We confess that because for our sins and for the iniquities of our fathers, Oregon has become a reproach to all those around us. Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of Your servants, and our supplications, and for the Your sake cause Your face to shine; incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our desolations, and the city which is called by Your name.  For we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies. O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name.

All forms of personal sin and idolatry (Additional Prayer Focus – Family Mountain)

“Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.” Col 3:5-11

Father, forgive us for putting the pursuit of material possessions above the needs of our spouses and our children and for pursuing self-fulfillment above self-sacrifice in our families. Forgive us Lord, for the excessive consumption of the earth’s resources while Your children in many parts of the world are dying of hunger, AIDS, and other diseases. Forgive us for our sexual sins and for participating in the sexualizing of our culture by the movies we watch, the clothes we wear, and the sites we visit on the Internet. We repent for and ask You to remit the sins of Oregon. We ask forgiveness for sins of sexual perversion.  Renew in us a commitment to sexual purity and to holiness. We confess the unholy acts of our state, including abortion, gang violence, suicide, and freemasonry.  We believe and receive for renewed life here and now.  Please expose every evil plot against our city and nation.  Holy Spirit, let Your power and presence prevail.  Touch the heart of the body of Christ in Oregon to be a light that sits upon a hill in this country. Stir the hearts of every Christian to represent Your love, forgiveness and grace in our daily living. Give us the courage and joy to stand for holiness and righteousness.

Not forgiving others (Additional Prayer Focus – Family Mountain)

“For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” Mt 6:14-15

Loving Father, forgive us for our own personal sins of not forgiving others. Show us how to be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as You through Christ have forgiven us.  Bring to our remembrance those we need to forgive.  Holy Spirit show us the faces of people we need to forgive.  “God, I forgive  ________ (name of people).”  Lord, we trust that as we extend Your forgiveness to others, you are healing us here and now.

Any area of resistance or unbelief in God or His kingdom (Church Mountain)

“Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you. For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.” Mt 21:31-32

Father, please forgive us for our acts of sinfulness, including oppression, greed, racism, sexism, ageism, elitism, deceit, lying, selfish ambitions, lawlessness, rebellion, violence, hatred, partiality, and slander. Father, please have mercy upon us and do not take Your Holy Spirit from us. We need You. You are our strong tower; without You we will perish.

Not walking in a spiritual act of Worship (Church Mountain)

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. Ro 12:1-2

Forgive us Lord, for placing loyalty to our land above loyalty to Your Kingdom advancing in every nation. On this day, we ask You to create in us, as believers, as Your Church in this state, and as Your Church in this nation, a clean heart, Oh God, and renew a right spirit within us. We come today to humble ourselves, pray, seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways so that You, Lord God, can heal our land. We believe and receive for Your healing touch – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.  Lead and guide us, giving us wisdom and discernment in all we do.  Your words are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Touch our state with miracles of your wondrous healing.  Since Your Spirit, who raised Jesus from the dead, dwells in us, we declare that You will also give life to our mortal bodies through Your Spirit who dwells in us.  Lord, we claim this Word over the State of Oregon.  We are thankful for the healing of Jesus Christ: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

Not Walking in Sincere Love  (Church Mountain)

“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” Ro 12:9-13

Holy and Righteous Father, forgive us as a state for our many sins. We admit institutional and personal acts of sinfulness. Wash us clean from our guilt and purify us from our sins. Forgive us for the times when our words have not matched our actions. We ask forgiveness for not always being the Body of Christ that You have called us to be for such a time as this. Have mercy upon us as a state for our times of unintentional neglect of Your call, and at times open disobedience to Your Word.  We believe and receive Your forgiveness for our sins.

Not walking in Christian Maturity (Business Mountain)

“Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.” 1 Th 5:19-22

Incredible Father, renew in us a commitment to be a force for justice, and forgive those who continue to commit injustices. Forgive us for caring more about our own comfort and convenience than we do about caring for those who are oppressed in our state. Stir in us a passion to be a force for good in the lives of the children in Oregon who go to bed hungry at night. Forgive us for the high divorce rate that has impacted two generations and threatens to affect a third generation.

PRAISE: “Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.” Ps 150:6

Praise God  (Additional Prayer Focus – Business Mountain)

“Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.” Ps 150:1-6

Blessed are You, Lord God of Israel, our Father, forever and ever.  Yours, O Lord is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, the victory and the majesty, for all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours. You are exalted and above all as our sovereign King who reigns over all. In Your hand is power and might, making great and giving strength to all. Now, therefore, our God, we thank You and praise Your glorious Name.  All heaven will praise Your miracles, Lord. Myriads of angels will praise You for Your faithfulness. Who in all of heaven can compare with You, Lord? What mightiest angel is anything like You? The highest angelic powers stand in awe of You. You are far more awesome than those who surround Your throne, O Lord God Almighty! Where is there any one as mighty as You, Lord? Faithfulness is Your very character.  Great and marvelous are Your actions, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are Your ways, King of the nations. Who will not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? You alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before You, for Your righteous deeds have been revealed.

God our Creator  (Additional Prayer Focus – Business Mountain)

“The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.” Is 40:29

Father, You are our Creator, our great God and King above all kings. You merely spoke and the heavens were created.  You breathed the word, all of the stars were born, You counted their number and called them all by name.  You assigned boundaries to the seas and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.  The earth is Yours, and everything in it.  The world and all its people belong to You. You laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths. You are the King of glory. You are strong and mighty. We proclaim Your unfailing love in the morning and Your faithfulness in the evening. As the heavens are high above the earth, so great is Your mercy toward those who fear You. Let all the earth fear You, Lord. Let all the inhabitants of the of the world stand in awe of You. Lord, You speak and it is done; You command and it stands fast. Lord, You are our portion and our hope.

God our Heavenly Father  (Government Mountain)

“Yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.” 1 Co 8:6

We praise Your name forever, for You possess all wisdom and power.  You are our strength and our song; You have become our salvation.  You are our God, and we will praise You, God of our fathers.  We exalt You as our Sovereign God.  We bless Your holy name.  You control the course of world events.  Yours is the authority over the kings of this world. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars. You reveal deep and mysterious things and know what lays hidden in darkness, though You are surrounded by light. Let the whole world fear You and let everyone stand in awe of You! You are great and greatly to be praised. You are to be feared above all gods. Lord, Your works are wonderful. Today we praise You with our whole hearts. We will tell of all Your marvelous works. We will be glad and rejoice in You; we will sing praises to Your name. We cry out with a loud voice, “Thanks be to our God.”  As the heavens are high above the earth, so great is Your mercy toward those who fear You; as far as the east is from the west, You have removed our transgressions from us.  Hallelujah!

God’s Love  (Government Mountain)

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Ro 8:37

Lord our God, how excellent is Your name in all the earth. You have set Your glory above the heavens. Our souls bless You and we remember all Your benefits. You are the one who forgives all our sins, heals us from diseases, redeems our lives from destruction, and crowns us with tender mercies. You fill our lives with good things and renew our Youth like the eagles. We honor You as our Lord and Savior.  Blessed are You, Lord, for you have shown us Your marvelous kindness in our state.   Wonderful Father, we thank You for our family relationships. We thank You for the institution of godly marriage and parenthood. Thank you for the singles in our community and for what you are doing for them and through them.  Lord, we thank You for fulfilling Your plans and Your purposes in our lives and for surrounding us with Your favor like a shield. We’re grateful You’ve provided safety and protection for our families. Thank You, Father, for Your love and compassion. Thank You for blessing our state and sustaining us.

God our Redeemer and Healer (Government Mountain)

“Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits– who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion.” Ps 103:1-4

Lord, we give thanks to You, for Your wondrous works declare that Your name is above all names. Lord, we thank You for salvation, the greatest miracle of all.  Thank you that with that salvation comes healing and deliverance.  Thank You for Your eternal love and unmerited grace, Your goodness and mercy. Thank You for sending Your Son Jesus Christ to break the power of the devil and to bring us hope, health and healing.

God is great among the Nations  (Education Mountain)

“From the rising of the sun, even to its setting, My NAME will be great among the nations.” Mal 1:11

Lord, You are King! Let the nations tremble! Lord, You sit on Your throne between the cherubim. Let the whole earth quake! Lord, You sit in majesty in Jerusalem, supreme above all the nations. We praise Your great and awesome Name. Your Name is holy! You own the depths of the earth, and even the mightiest mountains are Yours. The sea belongs to You, for You made it. Your hands formed the dry land too. Come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before You, the Lord, our maker. Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors. and let the King of Glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord, invincible in battle. Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of Glory enter. Who is the King of Glory? The Lord Almighty, He is the King of glory.

God’s Son – Jesus  (Education Mountain)

“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”  “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” Lk 19:38

Lord Jesus, You are King! Let the earth rejoice! Let the farthest islands be glad. Clouds and darkness surround You. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne. A fire goes forth before You, and burns up all Your foes. Your lightning flashes out across the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before You; before You, the Lord of all the earth. The heavens declare Your righteousness; every nation sees Your glory. Those who worship idols and brag about their worthless gods are disgraced,  for every god must bow to You.  All the cities of Judah are glad because of Your justice, Lord! You, O Lord, are most high over all the earth. You are exalted far above all gods.

DECREE:  “So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Is 55:11

God has not forsaken us!  (Education Mountain)

“The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Dt 31:7

Almighty Father, the nation whose God is the Lord is blessed, so we declare today that the state of Oregon worships You as Lord over our land today. We declare the power of Your love, and we proclaim that we love You, Lord, with all of our hearts, souls, minds, and strength. We love our neighbors as ourselves. We declare that we are a state that trusts in You, and practices good works. We will live safely in the land and prosper. We look forward expectantly for Your blessing to rest upon our systems of business, education, politics, justice, social sectors, technology, transportation, communication, and health care in Oregon. Lord, we declare that we are a state with Your Son Jesus Christ as Lord over all.

Ancient Paths  (Media Mountain)

“Thus says the Lord, “Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jer 6:16

Heavenly Father, let Your kingdom come and Your will be done in Oregon as it is in heaven. We decree that as residents of this great state, we will walk in your ways with humility and gentleness, believing all things, hoping all things, enduring all things, bearing with one another in love. We proclaim the unity through Your Spirit and the bond of heavenly peace. We will let our light shine so that people will see our good works and glorify You, Heavenly Father. We declare that the people in our communities will depart from evil, and do good; they will seek peace and pursue it.  We will not be overcome by evil; we will overcome evil with good.  Your peace will be within our walls, and prosperity will be within our houses. We will dwell in peace in our homes. We believe that our safety is in You. We declare that the citizens of our state will not fear, but will trust in You, Lord. We will not fear, because You are with us; we will not be dismayed, for You are our God. We proclaim that You will strengthen us and help us, upholding us with Your righteous right hand.

Call to God’s people  (Media Mountain)

“Do not fear, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and gather you from the west.  I will say to the north, “Give them up!”  And to the south, “Do not hold the back.” Bring My sons from afar, and My daughters from the ends of the earth.” Is 43:7

We declare that You are Commander in Chief of the armies of Heaven, and that Oregon is Your state.  We put on the full armor of God – the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, boots of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.  We thank you and praise You for the angels you have sent to protect us and deliver us, encamping around those who fear You.  Thank you that You have given angels charge over us, to keep us in all our ways. We are grateful that they excel in strength, do Your word, and heed the voice of Your word.  Thank you for both preceding us and following us in battle.  We decree that the battle over Oregon belongs to You, Lord!

Healing and Victory  (Media Mountain)

“But for you who fear My NAME the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall. Then you will trample down the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I do these things,” says the LORD Almighty.” Mal 4:2-3

Triumphant Father, as a people, we stand in the authority given to us and speak to the economy of our state and nation. In Jesus’ name, we proclaim that our economic growth will be sustained and steady.   We acknowledge You are our Provider and our Source.  We command justice to run down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream within our economy. We declare that the people of our nation will live in accordance with Your commands, and we will reap the fruit of our labor.  We destroy assignments of the enemy in foreclosure, bankruptcy, and financial loss, and attempts to steal, kill, and destroy.  We declare that Jesus Christ has come that we may have life, and have it more abundantly.  We declare that we depend on You for our sustenance, and that You are stabilizing our economy. We cancel every confession and proclamation of recession and economic ruin that has been spoken over our land, in the name of Jesus.  Father, we boldly call for new beginnings, increase, and abundance for our nation’s economy today. Father, You have given us a promise for economic provision through Your covenant with Abraham.  As his heirs, we stand in fulfillment of that truth today. We decree the fiscal health of Oregon is strong, stable and vibrant. We praise Your holy name.  Father, continue to help the economy of Oregon.  We admit that we have not always been prudent or wise with our finances. Please break the bondage of conspicuous consumption over our city. Show us how to be more disciplined and better stewards of the resources You have blessed us with. Remind us to count our blessings and be content with what we have instead of always wanting more. Holy Spirit, reveal godly economic strategies to our cities’ economists and financial visionaries that will bolster financial stability and security within a global economy. Father, there are many people in our state who are in financial trouble. Many need a miracle in their finances. Many need jobs.  We humbly ask for Your divine intervention and provision for those in Oregon that are in need.

Strength and Salvation  (Arts, Entertainment & Sports Mountain)

“The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.” Ex 15:2

God, we declare that all will see how great You are.  We declare that Your name is above all names, worthy of all praise.  How great is our God!  Omnipotent Father, Your Word says to pray for our leaders so that our lives will be peaceful. In accordance with Your Word, we ask You to lead and guide all of our local, state and national leaders.  Fill them with Your wisdom, knowledge, confidence, and peace. Help them in their personal and professional lives to make decisions that align with Your will for our state, and nation.  Bless all of our state officials and public service personnel, including the governor, the legislators, judges, law enforcement officials, and emergency response teams.  Show them how to lead us with honesty, purity, and integrity.   Strengthen all of them, and keep them healthy. Bless the works of their hands to meet the needs of our state and nation.  Holy Spirit, bless our schools. Help educators to remain committed to their educational calling. Increase their creativity and innovation to teach our students. We ask You to touch the hearts of our local, state, and federal legislators to increase funding and resources that are needed for school systems and institutions of higher learning. We welcome Your Holy Spirit in the classrooms and corridors of our schools.  Lord,  increase the capacity of our students to learn, comprehend, and excel in all areas of education, including reading, writing, mathematics, sciences, athletics, and the arts. As a multicultural state, we pray for unity between us as diverse students learn side by side.  We pray that educators and students will seek Your wisdom before all else; not to be wise in their own eyes, but to fear You as they follow Your Word.  We declare that members of the next generation are rising up to become church leaders – apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers;  worship leaders,  writers,  and community leaders who follow after You, leading others to pursue Your Son Jesus Christ.  We declare victory over the children of today who are the intercessors of tomorrow.  Show us how we can encourage the next generation to speak and act with power and authority in Your name as they grow in You.

Future generations will Praise the Lord!  (Arts, Entertainment & Sports Mountain)

“Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the LORD.” Ps 102:18

Holy Father, thank you for the gift of our families.  Thank you for speaking love and grace into our homes.  We declare that you are restoring stability through Your wisdom and mercy.  We declare that Your presence will provide joy and peace in our homes.  We declare that husbands will love their wives as Christ loves the church and wives will respect their husbands. We decree that husbands and wives are strong in the Lord and they lead their homes with God-confidence.  We declare that fractured families will be restored, that marriages will be made whole, and that Your forgiveness has been released.  We decree that single moms and dads can do all things through Christ who strengthens them and they will lead their homes with God-confidence. We pray for the many fatherless homes in our state.  We declare that Your guidance and presence as Father will provide their very needs.   We decree that our children will be successful everywhere and an entire generation of godly people will be blessed. By faith, we confess that they are obedient to authority, for this is right in Your sight. We confess that no weapons formed against our families will prosper and that You will reign supreme in our homes and in our family relationships.  We trust that the next generation will not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of their minds, that they may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect before Your will. Righteous Father, may our sons, who are planted in Your house, flourish in the courts of You our God. May our daughters, clothed in Your gold, be positioned as Your royal daughters of favor within the palace. May our prodigals return, and may our arms be outstretched as we receive them with joy.  Pour out Your Spirit on us, as our sons and daughters prophesy, seeing Your visions as old men dream dreams.  May there be no enemy breaking through our walls, no going into captivity, no cries of alarm in our town squares. We decree that we will experience joy in our state because You are our Lord!  May You look upon us and smile with favor on us. May Your ways be known throughout the earth and Your saving power dwell among Oregon and the northwest.

Hear the Word of the Lord  (Arts, Entertainment & Sports Mountain)

“Earth, Earth, Earth, hear the WORD of the Lord!” Jer 22:29

Father, we declare that as Your Word is spoken, it will move swiftly and save the lost in our city.  We declare that people will be arrested by Your presence.  Let awakening be released, in the name of Jesus. We declare a God awakening that arrests people as they’re going to the marketplaces, as they’re going to their jobs, as they’re going to their schools, as they’re going to their homes, as they’re sitting at tables as families – sudden restoration and reconciliation in families.  Person upon person, family upon family, community upon community – we welcome Your spirit as hearts turn toward You.  We declare that as people confess with their mouths Jesus as Lord, and believe in their hearts that You raised Him from the dead, they will be saved. Father, we decree that they will know the truth and the truth will set them free. We declare that Your Son Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.  We confess that we have sinned before You, but we believe that You are faithful and just to forgive us of all our sins and to cleanse us of all unrighteousness. We believe and receive for eternal life through faith in Your Son Jesus Christ.  We confess that in Jesus Christ, we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of Your grace.  Father, we ask You to clear the way so that Your gospel may be preached in our state. Since the harvest is plentiful, please send laborers to proclaim Your Word of salvation.  We lift up those we know who have yet to confess Jesus as Lord and Savior.  Father, as Your Word goes forth, touch the hearts of the unsaved to receive Your gift of salvation. Remove the darkness that keeps them from seeing You and receiving You. Father, use me as an answer to this prayer and give me Your courage and boldness to talk to nonbelievers about Your love and salvation.

Prophetic Word by Cindy Jacobs

Prophetic Word given by Cindy Jacobs to the RPN on August 20th 2010

The Lord would say to you California I am making you, I am giving you as the prayer network great authority to shift the nation says the Lord. The Lord says to you there are seeds of prayer that are in the ground of California – generational prayers that I am getting ready to answer not just your prayers says the Lord. For I have been waiting for those I could give a mantle to says the Lord, who could be those who stand for legacy in this state.

And the Lord says, California [this is what I see] it looks like a garden that was untended in some way in other words there were beautiful plants but it hadn’t been kept weeded or a pristine garden the Lord meant for it to be but the Lord is really showing me the weeds are getting cleared and the underbrush is getting cleared out so you will be able to see the road map that clear map of what I want to do in the state says the Lord.

The Lord says, the unity that you have reached this week [CA ROOT 52] is the beginning but you are going to be known as a Philadelphia state and there is going to be such unity among the believers and the Lord says, I am anointing and appointing this state particularly to shift for the next election and the Lord says this next election is key for California for I desire to bless this state says the Lord. I love this state and I desire to shift it but the Lord says you are at a ‘tipping point’ whether you will go from shaking to blessing – I am either going to shake it or release a blessing – but the Lord says, I will have a revival either way.

The Lord says, I am going to ‘breath’ with revival and the Lord says, My Spirit will fall in many, many, places but I am going to begin a revival in Central California and the Lord says there will be miracles and signs and wonders and breakout in the Latino community and I will ‘breath’ and it will go to the rest of the state says the Lord.

And the Lord says I am going to start breaking out among the Asians of Los Angeles even in Chinatown, there’s going to be a great move of God coming to Chinatown in San Francisco and Los Angeles and I literally see these Chinese anointed young leaders that are going into these places, these pockets of resistance for the gospel. And the Lord says, I am going to move in a great way, you are going to loose a youth revival for a Jesus people revival is coming again and it’s going to come like a mighty rushing wind and like a flood of the Spirit says the Lord.

Praise the LORD!

California Prayer Guide 2012

Nevertheless we made our prayer unto God, and set a watch day and night. Nehemiah 4:9

 

Join us as we build a wall of righteousness one prayer at a time.

For much time now, the USRPN has been championing a call to BOTH prayer and action; prayer activism. Our goal is to inform the Body of Christ concerning key issues across the nation so that they can not only pray about these issues, but also take action through civic involvement. We call California to join is in this goal and trust this prayer guide will help to assist you. Throughout the course of 2011 we’ve heard from God’s prophets that we are at a tipping point and no more business as usual. The FastForward campaign is a clarion call to the Ekkelsia. We recognize our nation is at a critical juncture and we are responding.

California has the God appointed honor of a forefront call in this election

August 2010 Dr. Cindy Jacobs prophesied to California, “The Lord would say to you California I am making you, I am giving you as the prayer network great authority to shift the nation says the Lord.

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. Psalm 20:7

Family and Marriage

Divorce is California’s most destructive epidemic. The divorce rate in California is a staggering 75 percent. “For many years, California has been known as the Divorce Capitol of the World, but today’s marriage dropout rate is shocking—- even by California standards…. Something must be done about California’s divorce rate. It is tearing apart the fabric of our society.” A marital state of emergency needs to be declared!! Sited by http://www.californiality.com

On November 4, 2008, California voters approved Proposition 8 by a margin of almost 600,000 votes. Proposition 8 placed into the California Constitution the same language that voters had passed by 61% of the vote in 2000. ‘Marriage is between one man and one woman.’

Although this bill was passed in 2008, Judge Vaughn Walker ruled California’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional in 2010. In 2011 the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was to rule on Judge Walkers ruling but was reluctant to do so – this matter is still in the courts. Cry out for righteous judgment in the gates.

Last year the California State Legislature passed Senate Bill 48 and Governor Jerry Brown signed it into law. SB 48 is also known as ‘California’s so-called “gay history” bill’. SB 48 passed in the Assembly 50-26 and in the Senate 23-14. A total of 72 Democrats and 1 Republican (Nathan Fletcher – San Diego) voted in favor of SB 48. This bill required curriculum that is positive toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other minority figures. But it also prohibited curriculum that reflects adversely on the same groups. The Los Angeles Times condemned the new law by noting, “Real history is richer and more complicated than feel-good depictions.” SB-48 took effect January 1, 2012 – - Capitol Resource Family Impact along with other pro-family individuals and organizations remain committed to the goal of reversing SB 48. 700,000 signatures will be required to get a new initiative on the 2012 ballot. Sited by http://stopsb48.com/

STAND UNITED IN PRAYER AND DECLARATION

  • For the required signatures to reverse SB-48 and for an awakening among Christians and local churches in California to take action in regards to these and other vital causes
  • For revelation of the importance of the family to the value system of society in California
  • That abortion will be eradicated from our state and a strong voice for the unborn will continue to speak
  • For the hearts of the fathers/mothers and the children to turn toward one another in love

Family and Marriage

Declare: Marriage is defined as between a man and a woman – this matter is settled in heaven therefore let it be settled on earth. For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. Gen 2:24

AFTER HAVING DONE ALL TO STAND STAND IN FAITH

  • For marriages to be strengthened and that covenant breaking spirits of divorce will not gain hold
  • For a turning of hearts – husband to wife / wife to husband and for their eyes to be opened to the marriage covenant – till death do us part. Matthew 19:1-9
  • Pray that the children and the youth will honor their mothers and fathers

Ekklesia (Church the overarching mountain)

California’s past revival history includes the 1906 Azusa Street Revival, the 1923 revival at the Angelus Temple and the Jesus Movement in 1967. Once again it is time for a powerful move of Godin our state and in our nation. The Lord has said there is a youth revival coming to California again. Join us as we contend for open heavens over California.

And the Lord says I am going to start breaking out among the Asians of Los Angeles even in Chinatown, there’s going to be a great move of God coming to Chinatown in San Francisco and Los Angeles and I literally see these Chinese anointed young leaders that are going into these places, these pockets of resistance for the gospel. And the Lord says, I am going to move in a great way, you are going to loose a youth revival for a Jesus people revival is coming again and it’s going to come like a mighty rushing wind and like a flood of the Spirit says the Lord. Cindy Jacobs August 2010.

STAND IN COVENANT ALIGNEMNT AND AGREEMENT WITH US

  • That the church to takes her place as the Ekklesia; the legislative and governing body
  • For awakening and a mobilization toward civic activism, with a focus on righteous voting
  • For Christians to respond who are called to run for public offices
  • Individually and as a church body we’d be awakened to the condition of our own heart as we cry out for God’s mercy
  • For a spiritual awakening and hunger for holiness among Christian leaders
  • Pray for California to be awakened to God’s unfailing unconditional love and follow in obedience because we love God and one another
  • The Lord has called the church in California to be a city set upon a hill. Declare with us that our light will not go out and we will have a continuous supply of oil in our lamp and keep it burning.

NOVEMBER 6 Elections Ballots

Safe, Clean, and Reliable Drinking Water Act of 2012 Proposes buying a bond of 11.14 billion to upgrade California’s water system to provide cleaner water, reduce pollution, and protect against natural disasters. http://ballotpedia.org/wiki/index.php/California_Water_Bond_(2012)

Prohibits Political Contributions by Payroll Deduction Cannot use payroll-deducted funds for political purposes without the annual consent of the worker.

Changes Law to Allow Auto Insurance Companies to Set Prices Based on a Driver’s History of Insurance Coverage. Initiative Statute. Changes current law to permit insurance companies to set prices based on whether the driver previously carried auto insurance with any insurance company. Allows insurance companies to give proportional discounts to drivers with some prior insurance coverage. Will allow insurance companies to increase cost of insurance to drivers who have not maintained continuous coverage. Treats drivers with lapse as continuously covered if lapse is due to military service or loss of employment, or if lapse is less than 90 days. Probably no significant fiscal effect on state insurance premium tax revenues. For vote on November 6, 2012 http://ballotpedia.org/wiki/index.php/California_Automobile_Insurance_Prices_Based_on_History_of_Insurance_Coverage_%282012%29

Redistricting. State Senate Districts. Referendum.
Summary Date: 08/26/11 | Qualified: 02/24/12
Proponent: Julie Vandermost c/o Charles H. Bell, Jr. (916) 442-7757
State Senate districts are revised every ten years following the federal census. This year, the voter-approved California Citizens Redistricting Commission revised the boundaries of the 40 Senate districts. This referendum petition, if signed by the required number of registered voters and filed with the Secretary of State, will: (1) Place the revised State Senate boundaries on the ballot and prevent them from taking effect unless approved by the voters at the next statewide election; and (2) Require court-appointed officials to set interim boundaries for use in the next statewide election. (11-0028)

Death Penalty Repeal. Initiative Statute.
Summary Date: 10/20/11 | Qualified: 04/23/12 | Signatures Required: 504,760 Proponent: Jeanne Woodford c/o James C. Harrison (510) 346-6200

Repeals death penalty as maximum punishment for persons found guilty of murder and replaces it with life imprisonment without possibility of parole. Applies retroactively to persons already sentenced to death. Requires persons found guilty of murder to work while in prison, with their wages to be applied to any victim restitution fines or orders against them. Creates $100 million fund to be distributed to law enforcement agencies to help solve more homicide and rape cases. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Net savings to the state and counties that could amount to the high tens of millions of dollars annually on a statewide basis due to the elimination of the death penalty. One-time state costs totaling $100 million from 2012-13 through 2015-16 to provide funding to local law enforcement agencies. (11-0035) http://ballotpedia.com/wiki/index.php/California_End_the_Death_Penalty_Initiative_%282012%29

Human Trafficking. Penalties. Sex Offender Registration. Initiative Statute.
Summary Date: 12/23/11 | Qualified: 05/10/12 | Signatures Required: 504,760
Proponent: Daphne Phung c/o James C. Harrison and Kari Krogseng. (510) 346-6200

Increases criminal penalties for human trafficking, including prison sentences up to 15-years-to-life and fines up to $1,500,000. Fines collected to be used for victim services and law enforcement. Requires person convicted of trafficking to register as sex offender. Requires sex offenders to provide information regarding Internet access and identities they use in online activities. Prohibits evidence that victim engaged in sexual conduct from being used against victim in court proceedings. Requires human trafficking training for police officers. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Potential one-time local government costs of up to a few million dollars on a statewide basis, and lesser additional costs incurred each year, due to the new mandatory training requirements for certain law enforcement officers. Minor increase to state and local governments on the costs of incarcerating and supervising human trafficking offenders. Unknown amount of additional revenue from new criminal fees, likely not to exceed the low millions of dollars annually, which would fund services for human trafficking victims.

Three Strikes Law. Sentencing for Repeat Felony Offenders. Initiative Statute.
Summary Date: 12/15/11 | Qualified: 06/11/12 | Signatures Required: 504,760
Proponent: David Mills c/o Dan Newman (415) 981-9940

Revises three strikes law to impose life sentence only when new felony conviction is serious or violent. Authorizes re-sentencing for offenders currently serving life sentences if third strike conviction was not serious or violent and judge determines sentence does not pose unreasonable risk to public safety. Continues to impose life sentence penalty if third strike conviction was for certain non-serious, non-violent sex or drug offenses or involved firearm possession. Maintains life sentence penalty for felons with non-serious, non-violent third strike if prior convictions were for rape, murder, or child molestation. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: State savings related to prison and parole operations that potentially range in the high tens of millions of dollars annually in the short run, possibly exceeding $100 million annually in the long run. Increased state and county costs in the millions to low tens of millions of dollars annually in the first few years, likely declining substantially in future years, for state court activities and county jail, community supervision, and court-related activities. (11-0057)

Genetically Engineered Foods. Mandatory Labeling. Inititative Statute.
Summary Date: 02/14/12 | Qualified: 06/11/12 | Signatures Required: 504,760 Proponent: James Wheaton (510) 444-4710 x309

Requires labeling on raw or processed food offered for sale to consumers if made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specified ways. Prohibits labeling or advertising such food as “natural.” Exempts foods that are: certified organic; unintentionally produced with genetically engineered material; made from animals fed or injected with genetically engineered material but not genetically engineered themselves; processed with or containing only small amounts of genetically engineered ingredients; administered for treatment of medical conditions; sold for immediate consumption such as in a restaurant; or alcoholic beverages. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Potential increase in state administrative costs of up to one million dollars annually to monitor compliance with the disclosure requirements specified in the measure. Unknown, but potentially significant, costs for the courts, the Attorney General, and district attorneys due to litigation resulting from possible violations to the provisions of this measure.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
