Praise Report! Over 16,000 Commit to Save Souls as Revival Fire Sweeps Across Europe
Dear Global 24/7 Prayer Wall Intercessor,
We have joined the 40 Weeks Prayer for Revival of Europe and prayed for one European country every week for nearly two months. We would like to share with you the stories of the Revival of Europ that are taking place to encourage us all:
This past week, I’ve been sharing with you encouraging stories of revival from exclusive interviews with evangelist Rodney Howard-Browne. In our final podcast about his Europe Ablaze Tour, Howard-Browne told me that he visited 43 cities to minister in the power of God, and 40,309 people participated. But what stood out to me the most was that over 16,000 people from all different walks of life committed to bring souls into the kingdom of heaven.
Howard-Browne also told me in this interview—which you can listen to here or at the end of this article—that he was originally believing God for 100 people per city to commit to evangelism. But the success he is seeing across Europe makes him think his ministry is on track to get 100,000 commitments by the end of 2020—double what he first expected.
“So when the people are there [at the altar], we lead them to Christ,” he says. “There are a lot of people, obviously who make decisions [to accept Jesus], but then there are also a lot of people reconvening or coming in to make sure. Then we pray for the baptism of the holy Spirit and for the fire of God to fall on them. And then we begin to talk about how now that they’ve received this power, how many of them … will commit to allow God to use them to win souls.”
As soon as he asks this question, hands shoot up in the air, Howard-Browne tells me. So they do a 20-minute evangelism training right there. He makes sure to tell them that there’s no one right way to share the gospel, but be sure to “tell people about Jesus everywhere you go and let your voice be heard.”
Howard-Browne says he tries to avoid ministering at the international churches in these European nations because he has a strong desire to reach the locals. He found one such church in Murcia, Spain. The church he visited has about 80 members, and its sister church has around 100. But over 600 people from all over Spain showed up the night Howard-Browne ministered.
“The fire of God hit,” he says of that Spanish church. “People were mobilized. People committed to win the lost.”
From Spain, Howard-Browne traveled to Ambilly, France, where he met with a pastor who wanted to plant hundreds of churches. The two men talked about Spirit-led strategies to see France shaken with the gospel.
But then, Howard-Browne arrived at Fier, Albania, a predominantly Muslim country. Albania had its own form of communism even though it wasn’t part of the former Soviet Union. Now, Howard-Browne says, mafias have taken over the country.
“And then I found out that George Soros is behind a lot of the stuff going on there,” he says. “You can just see his finger all over the people and the nations, which is a crazy thing. But the precious people—if you remember, Mother Teresa was an Albanian nun. So you can just picture these precious Albanian people receiving the fire of the Holy Ghost. It was just awesome.”
But he says Riga, Latvia, blew him away. He and the pastor of the church in Riga went to a church and met with 22 heads of government, including people from the E.U., people running for president and people from the Bundestag.
The meeting that was supposed to last an hour and a half ended up being 4 1/2 hours.
“They asked me, ‘Could you help us put together a whole human rights movement for the church?'” Howard-Browne tells me. “They said, ‘In Europe, the church’s rights are being taken away.’ I said, ‘Yes, of course.’ By the time I finished the trip, we would have been in 32 countries, so if I hook up all the pastors of these churches, and we helped put together a Human Rights Commission; we can put together a whole group to go to the world court in The Hague and stand up for the body of Christ. So that’s what’s happening on a grass-roots level.”

In addition, Father, we ask You to bless leaders of various political parties; let them lay down their subjectivity, opinion, and hostility in spite of the difference in their political views. Help them forsake their divisiveness and seek You in one heart in order to build up Israel.

Pray for Sudan After the Coup
【Current affairs: Sudanese President Bashir regime was overthrown on April 11th. After the military arrested Bashir, Vice President and Defense Minister Mohamed Ahmed Ibn Ove announced that Sudanese military will take over the country, temporarily rule the nations for two year, and will hold a general election afterwards. This has caused dissatisfaction among the demonstrators. The next president of the Sudan and the development of the future situation are still in the center of attention. … detailed reading】

Sri LanKa – Pray For Easter Serial Bombings
【 Current Events : On April 21 , Sri Lanka had 9 bombing attacks on Easter, including 3 churches, 4 hotels, and a house. More than 300 people have been killed and 500 injured. This is the most serious attack since the end of the civil war.
The explosion attacked the St. Anthony’s Church in Colombo, Sri Lanka, St Sebastian’s Church in Negombo, and Zion Church in Batticaloa, one of the largest churches in the city, when Christians were celebrating Easter. According to reports, three hotels in downtown Colombo and hotels in front of the Capital National Zoo also exploded.
According to the Sri Lankan authorities, the attack was carried out by the National Unitarian Church (NTJ) with the help of international militants and may have received assistance from another local armed group, Jammiyathul Millathu Ibrahim. NTJ is most likely a branch of the terrorist organization ISIS. The authorities have arrested 24 suspects.
Ask God to personally demonstrate righteousness and comfort and heal all the injured and the family. 】 (text: open doors and comprehensive reports)
Sri Lankan spiritual condition:
- According to the 2011 census, Sri Lankans who believe in Buddhism account for 70.2%, Hinduism 12.6%, Muslims 9.7%, Catholics 6.1%, Christianity 1.3%, and other religions 0.05%. Tamil Hindus and Sinhalese Buddhists have long been hostile to each other, thus triggering a civil war from 1983 to 2009. Although the conflict has ended, the hostility has continued to this day.
- In the Global Watch List released this year, Sri Lanka is ranked 46th among the top 50 countries where Christians are persecuted. In Southeast Asian countries, most religions are Buddhism, and Christians account for only 1.9 million of the country’s nearly 21 million people.
- In recent years, anti-Christian violence has become increasingly apparent. Extreme Buddhist monks have been violently attacking Christians from time to time, including arson and murder, church destruction, pastors and congregation members being attacked, etc. However, most of the government has not punished these mobs. Anti-Christian pressures are rising year by year. In the case of threats to life, local Christians still bravely worship the Lord.
Social issues: Years of civil war, economic depression, impoverishment, and racial bias and income inequality have driven large numbers of citizens to leave Sri Lanka to seek work abroad. As a result, many of these Sri Lankans were exploited and even enslaved by employers.
The battle of high-level political circles: An attempt to overthrow the prime minister in 2018 led to a prolonged constitutional crisis. Two months later, Sri Lanka was stagnant. Thousands of supporters marched on all sides. In the parliament, legislators broke out and fought with one another. Although on April 4, Sri Lanka received warnings from the United States and India the day before the explosion and 10 minutes before the explosion, the government did not respond to the situation.
Vigilance and reflection of the Global Christian Church:
- Children killed: Most of the casualties in Zion Church in Sri Lanka were children. At the time of the Sunday school class, the children raised their hands and said they were willing to die for Christ. When they went to breakfast, the suicide bomb exploded, and half of the children were killed and became martyrs.
- Churches around the world were attacked: In April of 2019, especially around Easter, vicious incidents in which Christian churches or Catholic churches were burned and attacked occurred around the world. The churches that were burned were: St. Paul’s Church in Munich, Notre Dame, the Anglican Church, the three churches in the Louisiana suburbs, the Texas Methodist Church, the Murray Church in Canada, the Merritt Parish Church, a church outside Moscow, South Africa. Calvin Church in the Western Cape Province.
- The mainstream media is silent about the death of Christians: as long as the attacked Christian church is a suicide or artificial arson, the identity and belief of the criminals are hidden and at most, they are hate crimes. Forty-nine Muslims were killed in a shooting incident in New Zealand. The mainstream English media used headlines for several weeks, and 300 Christians died in a church bombing in Sri Lanka. Facing such a big event, the global mainstream media was silent at the same time. In order to be politically correct, the official refused to transcend the identity and belief of the perpetrators, fearing to arouse certain emotions in society and to achieve a so-called fraternity society. 】
Pray for the Kidnapped Girls and Women in Nigeria
【Current events: On the night of April 14, 2014, 276 female students of Chibok Girls Secondary School in northeastern Nigeria were kidnapped by armed men. At that time, they requested assistance from the Nigerian government. 112 Chibok female students still have not been saved.
Among those who were arrest, at least 200 were Christians. Nigerian militants allegedly released 1,000 women imprisoned by Boko Haram in January 2016 but there were no Chibok girls found. Ten months later, the Islamic terrorist group released 21 Chibok schoolgirls, followed by the release of 82 more in May 2017. The remaining 112 are still not released. Yet, at least a dozen of the hostages’ parents are either killed by Boko Haram or because of too much stress.
Reasons for Kidnapping
It is reported that theChibok girls were kidnapped five years ago because of the Islamic organization’s plan to destroy the Christian community in northern Nigeria. Christians are still a minority in the region. The kidnapping of Chibok female students by terrorist organizations is only the “tip of the iceberg”. Many young people in the region have suffered the same. Thy were abused physically and psychologically, forced to convert to Islam and in no time forced to marry older Muslim men, which obviously have violated the law but the government is unable to enforce it.
Leah, Reluctant to Denounce Jesus

Pray for Sudan After the Coup
【Current affairs: Sudanese President Bashir regime was overthrown on April 11th. After the military arrested Bashir, Vice President and Defense Minister Mohamed Ahmed Ibn Ove announced that Sudanese military will take over the country, temporarily rule the nations for two year, and will hold a general election afterwards. This has caused dissatisfaction among the demonstrators. The next president of the Sudan and the development of the future situation are still in the center of attention.
Bashir’s Iron Rule
Remove from the list of terrorist Supporters?
The US government stated that if the Sudanese policy changes and a smooth transition of the regime is achieved, and the military will no longer control the regime, the United States will remove Sudan from the list of terrorist supporters. The official stressed it has to respect the will of the Sudanese people and allow the Sudanese people to achieve a peaceful transition.
In 1993, the US Clinton administration accused Sudan of providing support to organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah and sheltered “international terrorists” such as bin Laden, listed Sudan as a list of countries that support terrorism, and began to impose sanctions on Sudan, cutting the financial links in Sudan. In 2017, the Trump administration decided to remove the embargo against Sudan for more than 20 years and expressed its willingness to develop normal relations with the Sudan, but still placed Sudan on the list of countries that support terrorism. 】
Pray for Muslims During Ramadan (5/6-6/5)
What is Ramadan？
Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar during which Muslims fast and pray to get closer to Allah. Muslims believe that the first revelations of the Quran were made to Muhammad during Ramadan. This year, Ramadan is from 5/6 to 6/5.
What does “Islam” mean?
“Islam” means “obedience” and “peace” in Arabic, and followers of Islam are collectively referred to as “Muslim”, meaning “one who surrenders”. The believers must obey the will of Allah and practice the Five Pillars of Islam: trust and understand the Muslim profession of faith, pray five times a day, fast in the month of Ramadan, give money to charity, and pay pilgrimage to Mecca. The Quran is the holy book of Islam which was written by Muhammad, who is regarded as “the perfect person” and the last prophet. The Quran says that there is only one true god, that is, Allah.
What do Muslims believe about Jesus?
While Christians believe that Jesus is the Son of God, Muslims believe Allah has no son. Jesus appears 25 times in the Quran and is given special status, but He is only ever referred to as a prophet. The Quran states that Jesus never died on the cross but agrees that He will return to earth to usher in the end time.
Converted Muslims Face Persecution
When Muslims convert to Christianity, they face intense persecution; however, the number of believers from a Muslim background is growing. Islam has the most severe penalty for apostasy in the world. It is clearly stated in their laws that Muslims must not give up their Islamic beliefs, otherwise they are “apostates”, which is an insult to Islam; as a result, such people must be punished. Muhammad said: “Whoever changes his religion, execute him.“
According to《Open Doors》, the yearly published World Watch List shows that among the top ten countries which are most dangerous for Christians, half of them are Muslim countries. In addition, 40 out of the top 50 most dangerous countries have Muslim majority in their population.
Further, the terrorist attacks launched by Islamic extremist organizations are now the world’s number one killers of Christians. The converted Muslims are turned against by their own people with knives and guns. Local Christians are often enslaved, abused, sold, raped and even killed for refusing to convert to Islam.
Christian Response to Ramadan
Over 1.8 billion people around the world identify themselves as Muslims. During Ramadan, Muslims earnestly seek to get closer to Allah. In Matthew 5:44, Christ commands us to love our enemies and to pray for those who persecute us. Let us pray that the 1.8 billion Muslims will find the one true God. 】 (Source: Open Doors)
Revive Europe for 40 Weeks of prayer – Pray for the Revival of Spain
Spainish idols. Spain is the EU country with the highest consumption of prostitution, the 12th country with the most pornography in the world; corruption is also a very serious problem. Background : Population 46.5M, Evangelical: 1.2%, recognition, money and sex are serious problem; double moral standards, fraud and so on. Prayer focus: Ask God to awaken conscience and change people’s hearts. Christians to live the style of Jesus and attract people to God.
Background : Spain, a bridge between North Africa and the European continent, has been a disputed place for all ethnic groups since ancient times. The Muslim Moors occupied Spain for seven hundred years and ended in 1492. In the sixteenth century, Spain was the world’s super economic power. Later, after three hundred years of economic recession, it did not gradually improve until it joined the European Union (1986). The proceeds are mainly from tourism, industry and agriculture. The global economic crisis (2008) and the housing market crash have severely stagnated the economy. In 2011, the unemployment rate was the highest in Europe (nearly 23%), and signs of economic growth began to appear after the end of 2013.
Social scene :
In 1978, Spain replaced the dictatorship with democratic rule. From a poor country to a wealthy European power, the people also enjoyed greater religious freedom, but the economic progress also brought about material greed and indulgence. Sexual moral corruption, prostitution and abortion can be seen everywhere, and Spain’s fertility rate ranks lowest in the world. Spain is one of the countries with the highest doses of cocaine, loyne and cannabis in the world. About two million people use drugs, mostly young people. More than 100,000 drug addiction patients have gained new freedom through the gospel, and many people now believe in the Lord.
Legalization of same-sex marriage
From July 2005, Spain negotiated the legalization of same-sex marriage and the proposal to grant same-sex couples the right to adopt children. The bill passed, and Spain became the fourth country to legalize same-sex marriage after Europe’s Belgium and the Netherlands and Canada.Please pray for the church in Spain, so that the church may have influence in the government’s policy formulation.
Catalonia’s independence movement
Catalonia is an autonomous region of northeastern Spain dominated by Catalans. The state of the region has been changed many times and there have been two referendums in favor of independence. In 2017, the Republic of Catalonia was announced, but in the same year it was taken over by Spain to become the Spanish autonomous region once again. At present, the formal disputes between the two have not yet been resolved.
During the 16th World Religion trial, thousands of people were accused of new heresy, calling the leaders to have the power to kill them. They could arbitrarily torture and kill, while forcing tens of thousands of Jews, Muslims, and Protestants to change andbelieve in Catholicism or be expelled. Although Spain is considered one of the most Catholic countries, the proportion of Spaniards actually participating in Mass is less than 17%. Catholic sacraments and rituals no longer have spiritual significance for most young people.
Evangelical Christianity continues to grow with the opening of religious freedom: the impact of immigration is its main cause. Latin American, Roman and African believers poured into Spain and brought their evangelical Christian faith, making the Spanish experience a pluralistic Christian look that recognizes the truth of Jesus in a different way. Spain has never experienced a national renaissance, and the spiritual atmosphere seems to have dried up.
Spain and Morocco in Africa are only 13 kilometers apart. Almost every day, Africans arrive on the shores of Spain. Most of them believe in Islam. In recent years, immigrants have had a great impact on Spain. The local church is the best place to gather immigrants, actively helping them integrate into the local culture and passing on the gospel to them.

Pray for Taiwan: Facing Another Waves of Homosexuality
【Event: The Coalition for the Happiness recently invited many legislators to support the The Coalition for the Happiness ‘s version of the bill, and asked the legislators to oppose the law of marriage; The Coalition for the Happiness will continue to oppose the action of the Executive Branch’s bill; calling for a 40 days national fasting prayers starting from March 1 .
In November last year, the Taiwan government conducted a referendum on the legalization of same-sex marriage. As a result, 7.65 million referendums opposed the legalization of same-sex marriage and agreed to set up a special law to protect the rights of homosexual couples. At present, the draft of the Executive Branch is released. Although the name of same sex marriage is removed from the bill, but the content is subject to civil law marriage provisions, which violates the referendum. After the referendum, the Executive Branch did not propose a draft amendment to the marriage is of one man and one woman. Nor did it abolish the relevant laws and regulations on the education of primary and secondary schools, but introduced a same-sex marriage bill that violated the referendum. The Happiness Alliance will continue to oppose the actions of the Executive Branch bill. Before the end of May, it will be the period of revision of the law. On February 28th, there will also be a 40 days national fasting and prayer.
The Taiwan government conducted a referendum on the legalization of same-sex marriage in November last year . As a result, 7.65 million voted for referendums against the legalization of same-sex marriage, and agreed for the government to establish a special law to protect the rights of homosexual couples. Currently, the draft of the Executive Yuan is released. Although the term “same sex marriage” is avoided in the bill, the content is for the same sex marriage, which violates the referendums. The Executive Branch did not propose a draft amendment to the marriage of a man and a woman, nor did it abolish the relevant laws and regulations on the education of primary and secondary schools, but introduced a same-sex marriage bill that violated the referendums. The Coalition for the Happiness of our Next Generation (Abbr. The Coalition for the Happiness) will continue to oppose the this Executive bill. Before the end of May, within the time period for the revision of the law, there will also be another 40 days of national fasting and prayer, starting February 28th.
The draft of “ Interpretation and Implementation of the law number 748” that was sent to the Legislative Yuan to be reviewed on February 21, is not the “same-sex living law” that the Coalition of Happiness expected. Rather than the next generation of happiness alliance Pastor Shaoen Kuo(Pastor of the House of Christ in Taipei) published the article “ a day of distress, rebuke and disgrace.” on the 21st, calling for the Taiwanese churches, which support the movement of “Love and Protect Family and Children” to pray together and to participate in the convocation of 228 and Forty days of Praying and Fasting that begins on March 1, calling on God to reign and rule the kingdom of men until we see the glory of God .
Approaching May 24, 2 years anniversary of the No. 748 “Sunrise Clause“. due to the referendum on the election in November last year (2018), the 3 referendums proposed by the Coalition of Happiness were passed. A group of citizens who care about the issue of family and children launched a thousand people march around the Executive Yuan prayer vigil at 7:00 pm of February 19, calling on the Executive Director Jenchang Su to honor the referendum results. The original 30-minute prayer vigil drew waves and waves of caring citizen participating. it couldn’t be stopped even after 9:30pm, there were still people swarming in to participate.
However, the Executive Yuan’s version is still not in line with the expectations of the Coalition of Happiness. Pastor Shaoen Kuo believes that the “common marriage law” cannot be contrary to the will of God. Facing such difficulties, the churches in Taiwan should come together and pray until the glory of the Lord is manifested. Pastor Kuo prayed to God and said, “What we can’t do with our hands, we can do with our prayers, nothing is too difficult for God. God, may You call Your churches, to fulfill Your will in 2019, show Your glory in Taiwan, May Your blessing stay in Taiwan”. We declare: “The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord (Prov . 16:33), ” In the Lord’s hand the king’s heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him. (Prov 21:1)
The following is the full text of “A day of Distress, rebuke, and disgrace…”
How should we respond?
The version of the “Special Law” of the Executive Yuan has been released! The definition of marriage and family is ambiguous, and the implementation of regulations is dodging the point! Many brothers and sisters are confused, disappointed, angry, and bewildered… At this moment, how should we respond?
When I got up in the morning, the Father put the experience of Hezekiah in my heart! “ This is a day of distress, and of rebuke, disgrace ……” (I king 19:1-4) , when the country encountered great difficulties, the enemy attacked, humiliated, people fell into deep distress! Isn’t Judah undergoing a spiritual revival? Isn’t God with them, and blessed them? How did it end up this way? (2 Chronicles 29-32 / II King 18-19)
How could this be? What are we to do ?
In King Hezekiah, the Bible reveals a “way out” at this moment! Before people: silent! (2 Kings 18:36); before God: Cry out! (2 Kings 19:1 ) When the Assyrian army coming toward the city with arrogance and fierce, it is easy to imagine that the whole country was in chaos… a lot of hustle and bustle. Hezekiah told everyone: be silent, go to the Lord and tell Him! Let the voice of the people quiet down, so the work of God can be revealed! Although we can do nothing, our Lord is full of power! So, we saw: never in the history of mankind, God personally intervened and took over – overnight, the angesl of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousands in the Assyrian camp! ( 2 Chronicles 21 / II King 19: 35 ) At the greatest danger, we can experience the greatest glory of God!
Difficulties, cause our souls to wake up!
Isn’t the experience Taiwan went through, along the way similar? – difficulties, has awaken our souls !
- In December 2016, 130,000 people march onto the street Kaida and stood for the truth! However,
- In May 2017, the Chief Justice’s interpretation of the Constitution made people extremely disappointed! At a critical moment, silent, not be discouraged, continue to cry out to God! Suddenly,
- In December 2017, the amendment to the “referendum law” was passed, and there was a break of dawn! Then,
- In the 2018 referendum process, a task that was so impossible that almost no one was optimistic, facing many doubts, ridicules, attacks, distortion… We chose to be silent, not discouraged! Continue to put our hands to work- going all out, do our parts, with weapons in one hand – earnestly appealing to heaven, crying out for God to show His power!
- On November 24, 2018, we saw God’s mighty glory: He reign and make the impossible, possible. He gathered and made the Taiwanese church body shifted, to become the Lord’s army, and possessed the land for the Lord, Hallelujah!
2019 is the year of war, and the year of victory!
The work of God is always: at first, it seems impossible, then, it is too hard, and finally: God did it! From “Impossible, too difficult, to God did it”, is all the work of God, God’s glory, and all we could do is: at each time of hardships, silent, and look to God, not affected by the environment, not discouraged! Continue to do our part and do what needs to be done! Continue to cry out to God and for Him to manifest His might! Then, we continue to experience God! 2019 is the year of glory, we will experience His greater glory! However, without battle, there is no victory, no victory, no glory? Therefore, 2019 is the year of war, the year of victory! At this moment, there are still many brothers and sisters, applying the wisdom, resources, and influence that God has given them! May they not be discouraged and continue: lobbying, mobilizing, fighting, doing what needed to be done! For the rest of us, be silent, keep them in our prayers! Let Joshua know that when they are out fighting hard in the valley, many families are praying fervently on the mountain, co-laboring with them in the battle! They are not alone! Now is only the beginning of 2019. Persist in the war! We believe Taiwan is chosen by God . We will live out the glory of God in the end time generation–so the world can see that the Lord is truly reigning in the kingdom of men! 2019 is the year of glory, God is moving!
Radical Change for Communities in Crisis – Pine Ridge, South Dakota
【Event: Oglala Sioux Indian Reservation at Pine Ridge is located in South Dakota about 1.5 hours east of Mount Rushmore. As the site of the infamous Wounded Knee massacre, and home to Native luminaries such as Red Cloud, Black Elk, and Crazy Horse, it is one of the most influential Indian homelands in America.
Many have previously tilled the soil:
- Bruce & Marsha BonFleur established the Lakota Hope Ministry in Whiteclay, faithfully serving there for 20 years. Other missionaries have served a number of years on the reservation, as well as short-term teams from churches and ministries.
- Dedicated native Lakota leaders minister in churches on the reservation. One is respected tribal elder, Norma Blacksmith, the daughter of a former medicine man. Norma is now a fearless, on-fire Christian intercessor on behalf of her people, who also travels to preach the Gospel in other reservations.
In early 2015, Pine Ridge was wracked by an epidemic of youth suicides. Many, many perished, with a significant number taking their lives in collective death pacts. As the momentum built, fear and grief hung over the reservation like a heavy, wet blanket.
A group of Native intercessors invited George Otis Jr. to Pine Ridge to discuss the principles & power of transforming revival.
Recent insider accounts confirm the Evil One was indeed behind this carnage. Working through a handful of perverse medicine men, he launched a scheme in which vulnerable young people were drawn into sweat lodges and “prophesied to.” Several were told: “The spirits have shown me there will be 25 more suicides — and you will be one of them.” Sadly, these words proved to be curses, and those who heard them simply lost their will to live.
A prominent medicine man was exposed as influencing suicides, and is widely believed to have ordered the assassination of a young man who exposed him.
By June 2015, however, a spiritual counter offensive was under way. Led by Norma Blacksmith and a small band of Native and non-Native partners, the power of the Holy Spirit was unleashed to break the bands of death. And as the suicides abated, many traumatized families (including prominent traditionalists) opened up to the love of God. They were eager to not just hear the word of the Lord, but to heed it. Not surprisingly, healing, deliverance, and conversions picked up across the reservation. It was clear the conditions were ripe for a significant breakthrough.
George Otis brought Walo Ani (Walo has facilitated amazing transformations in villages in Papua New Guinea), to come to Pine Ridge in 2016. Walo taught on corporate repentance, leading times of repentance, leading times of confession and expressions of unity.
Wade McHargue reported, “It was a powerful time. The presence of God was very tangible & the Holy Spirit spoke clearly through His servants.” The week culminated with a unity service with five churches represented…It was deeply moving to see many come forward to repent publicly, and to make reconciliation and intercession. It was unlike anything I’ve seen since being here…we just witnessed an indisputable act of God here…the fruit of years of fasting & prayer, & a specific outgrowth of the time George Otis & Walo spent with us.”
Sun Dance at Thunder Valley is the biggest on the Reservation attracting 500 or so people each year (with connections as far as Europe). The Sun Dance tree (or pole) bearing flesh offerings and tobacco ties is the central focus, and remains up year-round. Never, I repeat never, has anyone heard of anything like what happened here last week. A violent wind pulled that tree out of the ground and threw it down!! Those trees are buried 7 feet into the ground… Everyone who heard about what happened knows it is supernatural. One of the key intercessors joined by others prayed specifically for this pole to be pulled down,. Within days, it was laying on the ground. God did it!!!”
It is important to understand that God is moving in an unprecedented way on Pine Ridge. And He has been announcing His intentions to local intercessors beforehand so there will be no doubt about who is behind these mighty deeds.
A key leader from the Kyle area, had four recurring dreams around the time God uprooted the Sun Dance pole. In the dreams, he is taken by an angel to the various Sun Dance altars on the Reservation. The angel then says, “This is what the Lord God is about to do…” and proceeds to smite the ground until it caves in and the Sun Dance tree falls. Dramatic stuff… especially when it actually happens!
But this is not ALL that God is doing, genuine transforming revival moves on multiple fronts. And this is what has been happening on Pine Ridge over the last few weeks.
Another promise of God was that He would deliver entire families from bondage and deception. It is EXTREMELY RARE for families or clans raised in Indian traditional religion to come to Christ wholeheartedly, but this is exactly what has been happening! One high profile family, disturbed by the hypocrisy of medicine men and impressed by the power of the Living God, noted traditional Lakota ceremonies are often done in the dark while followers of Jesus do things in the light.
A Native man, who had been resuscitated by electric shock paddles after trying to hang himself, was afflicted in his back and had just found out about a tumor on his kidney. He walked with a cane, and with the pain level of 9 on a scale of 10, A minister laid hands on him and began to pray. It is hard to describe the expression on his face as the power of God entered his body and instantly removed all pain. Priceless! He just looked at the minister with these stunned eyes, and together gave glory to God.”
This is just one of numerous examples of God’s healing power being released in recent days. And word is getting out! Convinced the followers of Jesus have real power, traditional Lakota are opening their hearts and homes to the Gospel.
CLOSURE OF ALCOHOL SHOPS
After decades of anguish, political wrangling, and intense intercession, notorious alcohol vendors in the unincorporated village of White Clay, gateway to the Pine Ridge reservation, are finally being shut down in 2017! This is earth shaking news.
An absolutely vile place, White Clay has become a hotbed of drug deals, human trafficking, and deadly fights. But worst of all, its alcohol trade has played a leading role in countless traffic fatalities, domestic tragedies, alcohol poisonings, and suicides across the reservation. An estimated 80 percent of Pine Ridge households are impacted.
How bad has it been? Consider the fact that White Clay’s four alcohol outlets sell more beer per capita than any town in America — nearly 4.5 million cans in a community with only a dozen full-time residents! Numerous TV reports and documentary films have highlighted the scourge, but until now, to no avail.
Thanks be to our GREAT GOD for His mighty and loving intervention! This will change things.
One year later, it is reported that now no one is suffering in the streets in Whiteclay, no one is lying passed out, no one is getting stabbed, and on one is urinating or defecating in public on the street,
Some business owners had feared their business would suffer if the liquor stores were closed. But business in Whiteclay is still doing well.
State senators have formed a task force to create new businesses, & establish a detox & rehab facility. People are getting excited about the potential of perhaps having a restaurant, movie theater, and 24-hour gas station!
GATHERING OF THE SEVEN COUNCIL FIRES
Recognizing that God is moving in their midst, several Native leaders have summoned pastors and intercessors from the various bands and reservations that make up the Sioux Nation. This collective, known as the Seven Council Fires, is located primarily within the Dakotas.
Several churches have come together to have unity services, in historic fashion, to further humble themselves, repent, and call upon God to fulfill His purposes among the Sioux people —for the healing of the land on Pine Ridge and beyond. They are still seeking wisdom and counsel for the process of transforming revival. .
24/7 HOUSE OF PRAYER: The elders and leaders of Pine Ridge understand the power of prayers and worship. They want to establish a 247 house of prayers
