AWAKEN THE DAWN: AMERICA’S TENT OF MEETING
July 28, 2017
An historic national prayer gathering is in the works for October 6-9, 2017 on the National Mall. This event, called “Awaken the Dawn,” will be centered around prayer and worship, with intercessors and musicians filling over fifty tents, one for each state. Organizers have shared the story of this remarkable vision on their website, www.awakenthedawn.org.
Their hope and vision is that “America’s Tent of Meeting” will be catalytic in bringing revival and a fresh outpouring of the Spirit upon this nation, especially the youth. They are inviting intercessors to join in prayer from now until the event in what they are calling a “procession of prayer.”
Here are seven prayer points they are highlighting in preparing the way for God to move mightily through this initiative.
TENT OF MEETINGS – This is the cry that must arise from the generations as we tabernacle together on the National Mall: We want to meet with Jesus face-to-face!
PRAY: John 1:14 declares that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us”—we want Jesus to tabernacle among us on the National Mall in His full splendor.
PROCESSION – Each person in this procession is bringing an offering before the Lord—their very own lives as a “living sacrifice” (Romans 12:1) unto the Lord. It will be a procession for the ages: men and women; young and old.
PRAY: Singers, musicians, and worship leaders will respond to this unprecedented call of God to tabernacle before the Lord as they represent their state on the National Mall, and for thousands of praying women to gather at The Call on October 9th.
BEAUTY OF JESUS – In the midst of crying out to meet with Him face-to-face is the need to encounter Him afresh.
PRAY: The Spirit of wisdom and revelation will unveil the beauty of Jesus to the hearts of this generation.
WORTH OF JESUS – It is our longing to summon a generation to the National Mall to express even out of our weakness the worth that is ascribed to Him—and Him alone!
PRAY: Revelation of His worth—the inexpressible glory of the God-Man, Christ Jesus would be multiplied within the hearts of all.
SACRIFICIAL LOVE – The worth of Jesus compels us out of love to surrender all. Love sees no sacrifice too great for the One who sacrificed all for us.
PRAY: One aspect of sacrificial love that we must humbly share is the need for financial provision to pull off a gathering of this magnitude. Please pray for surrendered hearts to lavish sacrifices of love at the feet of Jesus.
NEW JESUS MOVEMENT – Today we are contending for the unveiling of the beauty of Jesus, coupled with the demonstration of signs and wonders to awaken a generation unto the worth of Jesus. There is no backup plan. Only one antidote in this hour will work: the worth of Jesus burning in the hearts of the Millennial Generation.
PRAY: Cry out to the Father for a new Jesus Movement to apprehend and capture the heart of the Millennial Generation. Declare Acts 4:30 over this generation: “Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
MISSIONS MOVEMENT Missions movements historically follow a genuine move of the Spirit as sons and daughters surrender their lives to make Christ known to the ends of the earth. Many in this hour are praying Matthew 9:38—“therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
PRAY: Pray to the Lord of the harvest to send forth—ekballo—laborers into His harvest fields.
