"Lou Engle Calls For Emergency
Prayer For 'The Burning Bush'"
God launched "The Cause," on this prophetic journey to pray for the ending of
abortion, we received a dream that Bob Jones would meet with us, and thrust us
forth on our mission. Our company of 70, spent two days with this prophet before
embarking on the prayer journey, "The Trail of Tears."
He gave us a defining
word. He said, 'We need to have the eagles (the prophets), who see the vision in
the spirit, but we have to have the honkers (the wild geese intercessors), who
fly in 'V' formation, to breakthrough in the second heaven, and pray the vision
of the eagles into being." Intercessors are the stewards of the
prophetic promises of the church, and we made a commitment as a
ministry to pray through Bob Jones' visions and dreams.
Bob Jones received a vision in 1999, that the "Burning Bush" would come out of
Texas, and in the second half of his second term, if the church would pray, he
would do much to end abortion, restrain homosexual marriage, and bring prayer
back to the schools in America. We believe that we are in a decisive moment of
the fulfilling of that dream/vision right now. The favor of President George
Bush is at the lowest point ever at this moment. Maybe not with God, but in the
view of the American people. We just met with a U.S. Senator, who confirms to
us, that almost everything positive seems to be retained and held back on
Capitol Hill right now.
The 2006 elections may hinge on the
perspective that the people of America hold for President George Bush. And the
results of the 2006 elections, may either help or hinder President George Bush
from fulfilling God's intention for his presidency. Wherever I go, I can feel
the attitude of resignation, criticism, and despair, but the second half of
George Bush's second term, is not yet here. The question is, will the church
give up and yield to opinion polls, criticism, and acquiescence, or will the
church pray according to the vision, and believe the prophets and succeed? Bob
Jones' word was, "...if the church would pray...."
Praying Prepares Us For
Right now, we could be in a moment like the
battle for Dunkirk in World War II where, "...everything looked like certain
disaster for England and the allied troops." In his journal entry on May 22,
Rees Howells said, "The world is in a panic today and certainly we would be too,
unless we were sure the Lord has spoken to us. The destiny of England will be at
stake today and tomorrow. In a battle such as we are in today, you cannot trust
in a meeting or in feelings. We must go back to what God has told us. There is
an enemy that we must keep in check until God does the big thing." Then on May
30, Rees Howells wrote, "From a worldly standpoint, there is no hope of victory,
but God has said it. Instead of bad news about our soldiers, if He is on the
field of battle, He can change that and make it very good news."
Again on May 17, Rees Howells said to his
intercessors, "God will not do a bit more through you than you have faith for.
You are more responsible for this victory today than the men on that battle
field. You must be dead to everything else but this fight. Because you have
committed yourself, you are responsible." Then on May 18, he declares, "I want
to fight with this enemy again this weekend, as if it were the end of
civilization. You don't leave anything to chance. Don't allow these men at the
front to do more than you do here." Norman Grubb, author of Rees Howells
Intercessor, then writes, "How thankful we are that God had this company of
hidden intercessors, whose lives were on the altar day after day, as they stood
in the gap for the deliverance of Brittan."
Maybe President Bush's legacy and the future of our nation, hinge more on our
prayers than the whole political debate that rages right now. Rees Howells
understood it. It is all about, '...if the church will pray." History belongs to
the intercessors. We've been on a governmental prayer revolution for several
years and to drop the ball at any stage, is suicide in the face of the raging
powers of darkness that seek to destroy the inheritance of this land.
One of our strong prophetic women had this
I was outside, then President Bush and his wife walked up to me and just started
talking to me. When they started to leave, I told Laura Bush that she was
beautiful. As they were walking away, she told President Bush that she felt like
she had known me for years. (I believe this says that we are to comfort the Bush
family with God's vision for them, which is even yet a beautiful vision. Also,
they need to continue to experience the intercessory strength and sustenance,
that the church has given them, and they have known in the last six years.)
Then the scene changes, and I was watching a political debate on TV, which would
determine who would run for president. Al Gore is the only face that I
recognized. (I believe this speaks of the present intense opposition and heated
political vilification of George Bush's presidency right now, and that the
spiritual powers that were confronted six years ago in intercession over the
elections, are seeking to reassert themselves again and reclaim the ground
Then in the dream, the channel changed and a headline came across the screen. It
read, 'The rise and fall of President Bush!" I started to freak out, because I
knew that he just started the second part of his second term.
I could not understand why they were trying to kick him out. (I believe this
statement, 'the rise and fall of President Bush," is literally being spoken in
the councils of hell right now. This is the strategy of the second heavens even
now! I believe this could speak of the desire of his political opponents, to
derail the 2006 elections, and to impeach George Bush, or to make him a lame
duck president in his second term. Even as I am writing this, the Lord just
spoke powerfully to my heart that satan is seeking to do everything he can do,
to thwart the fulfillment of Bob Jones' prophetic word. Everything is raging
against what God has promised to do in the second part President Bush's second
term--unless the church will pray!)
The screen changed again and this time a map of the United States appeared. The
southern states were marked in red, then other states across America slowly
turned red. I knew the momentum was changing for the better for President Bush.
Then the scene changes, and I am in my car leaving D.C., but I realized I was not
suppose to leave, so I did a U-turn and went back to D.C. (I believe that God is
saying there will be a turning of the tide of this present negativism and even a
shift in the 2006 elections, if the church does not give into a spirit of
pessimism and acquiescence--to the present negative atmosphere. We are to do a
U-Turn from that attitude, and turn our hearts back to D.C. with focused and
The dream continues:
Then I was in a car talking about the interview I was about to do on the
television talk show called, "The View". ("The View" is a women's
television talk show, where women bring their political views, primarily with a
liberal slant. I believe that the church and particularly women in America with a Godly
worldview, must rise up with a public voice and concerted intercession. They
must articulate God's view for America, to contend with the prevailing Jezebel
assault on Godly authority, and its corresponding ambition for the position of
authority, that will mark even the 2008 Presidential elections.)
Then in the dream, I was talking about my new job at the White House, working
for President Bush. I was asked, "What are you going to do at the White House?"
I replied, "I am going to change history!" Then I saw myself with
President Bush in his office. We were talking about America and this generation.
At one point, we started praying. (We must have this attitude of faith right now,
that we are going to change history through our intercessions, and that our
vocation is to influence the very office of the presidency of the United States.
What we do now, will change America and this generation, and we are at the point
to start praying with a fresh infusion of faith.)
Pray Through Pentecost
Bob Jones has spoken a word, that a
corporate empowerment is coming to the body of Christ on Pentecost Sunday. I
believe this is an eagle type word that needs to be carried by the honkers. If
we launch prayer in the evening of Mother's day, May 14, it would be twenty-one
days to Pentecost Sunday, and forty days to June 22, when Cindy Jacobs (a true
Deborah in our nation), is holding a 'Shift the Nations" prayer gathering in
On that same day, June 22, the court case, Doe v. Bolton (the
second court case of 1973 that sealed Roe V. Wade, the court case that legalized
abortion), is slated to be heard in the U.S. Supreme Court. We are calling the
church to pray for twenty-one days to and through Pentecost Sunday. Pray for the outpouring
of the Holy Spirit for a corporate empowerment for the Church, and pray for
40 days for a shifting of our nation, for the ending of abortion, the raising up
of righteous judges, and the fulfillment of God's plan for our president.
E.M. Bounds said, "The prayers of God's saints are the capitol stock of Heaven,
by which God carries on His great work upon the earth. The great throes and
mighty convulsions in the world, have come about as a result of these prayers.
The earth is changed, revolutionized; angels move on more powerful, more rapid
wings; and God's policy is shaped when the prayers of His people are more
numerous and more efficient." (E.M. Bounds, E.M. Bounds on Prayer).
I believe this word is true. Let these
thoughts grip our mind, '...if the church would pray..." and '...the second half
of his second term..."
Let's not be negligent now; Let's pray--let's roll.
