Ps 8

I'm writing from Boston, MA right now. I traveled here with Lou today to help spy out the land for a house of prayer. A few years ago Lou received a word from the Lord declaring, “No one is targeting false ideologies with massive prayer and fasting.” Lou has had it on his heart for some time to raise up a house of prayer that contends with the ideologies of humanism and intellectualism that have been released through the universities of New England. We stood today in front of Harvard University’s Philosophy school- the very focal point of this giant in our land. This history of this school is quite remarkable. As construction was being completed at the turn of the century the president of Harvard asked the philosophy dean what inscription he wanted on the facade. His reply was “Man is the measure of all things.” This response came at a time when humanistic thinking was ravaging the schools that had been founded as seminaries. A scaffolding was erected and the inscription began. However, when the cover came off, what was revealed was quite unexpected. The president had decided to part with the dean’s request and instead inscribed Psalm 8, “What is man that thou art mindful of him?”

That inscription stands today; it’s history and meaning quieted somehow. But we believe the demise of this giant can be found in the very thing that stares us in the face. Could it be that Psalm 8 is the stone that is to be slung deep into the forehead of this giant; the ideological center of this strongman? Beginning March 1 we are calling for college students all over the country to come to Boston during Spring Break. For 40 days we will fast and pray around the clock for breakthrough in the heavens. Day and night, night and day we will sling our stone at this forehead. It will be nothing less than an Uprising which is what it has been named. 40 days from March 1 (Ash Wednesday) to April 9 (Palm Sunday) which marks the 100-year anniversary of the Azusa Street Revival. Out of this we will launch the Justice House of Prayer Boston. Please pray as we are searching and securing a strategic location from which to mount this assault. Our sense is that Harvard has no idea what is about to erupt. We are believing for massive revival to break out here and at universities across the nation.

Come to Boston and fight the battles of the Lord.
