  • began discussinga prayer strategy.
  • 00:02:27.797 --> 00:02:30.666
  • That's how thisprayer initiative
  • 00:02:30.766 --> 00:02:32.201
  • called UNITE714 was born,
  • 00:02:32.301 --> 00:02:35.238
  • which has quickly grown intoa global prayer movement.
  • 00:02:35.338 --> 00:02:40.109
  • UNITE714 is based upon 2Chronicles 7:14 that says,
  • 00:02:40.209 --> 00:02:45.581
  • "When we humble ourselvesand repent and pray,
  • 00:02:45.681 --> 00:02:49.318
  • "God will hear us, andhe'll heal our lands."
  • 00:02:49.418 --> 00:02:52.188
  • The good newsis, right now,
  • 00:02:52.288 --> 00:02:54.223
  • Christians from everycorner of the earth

  • are uniting in prayer.
  • 00:02:57.493 --> 00:02:59.295

  • to gather Christiansto join in prayer
  • 00:03:06.669 --> 00:03:09.572

  • 00:03:28.190 --> 00:03:29.959
  • which is found inthe book of Acts.
  • 00:03:30.059 --> 00:03:31.961

  • that the Holy Spiritdescended on the church.
  • 00:03:36.299 --> 00:03:39.335
  • Why did the Holy Spirit come?
  • 00:03:39.435 --> 00:03:41.337

  • 00:03:41.437 --> 00:03:44.340
  • and to empower them
  • 00:03:44.440 --> 00:03:46.042
  • to be a witness forChrist to a broken world.
  • 00:03:46.142 --> 00:03:48.678

  • You know, when thisprayer effort began,
  • 00:05:32.748 --> 00:05:34.550
  • God led us to not onlyunify the body of Christ,
  • 00:05:34.650 --> 00:05:38.454
  • but to also focuson 2 Chronicles 7:14
  • 00:05:38.554 --> 00:05:41.624
  • and of course, verse 13 says,
  • 00:05:41.724 --> 00:05:44.760
  • there would be timeswhere the heavens
  • 00:05:44.860 --> 00:05:46.462
  • would be shut up andthere'd be no rain,
  • 00:05:46.562 --> 00:05:49.098
  • and there would be timeswhere there were plagues
  • 00:05:49.198 --> 00:05:51.100
  • like COVID-19.
  • 00:05:51.200 --> 00:05:53.202
  • "But if my people whoare called by my name",
  • 00:05:53.302 --> 00:05:55.704
  • would do four things,"humble themselves,

  • "pray,

  • when the UNITE714 effortbegan, to this moment,

  • in a unified way,
  • 00:06:20.663 --> 00:06:22.097

  • the day we are celebratingand remembering today,
  • 00:06:23.532 --> 00:06:26.435

  • 00:06:33.809 --> 00:06:36.245
  • around the worldwould be enlarged.
  • 00:06:36.345 --> 00:06:39.181

  • So, when I talk about COVID-19let me use the word impression.
  • 00:22:37.605 --> 00:22:41.176
  • It was December 31st 2018,
  • 00:22:41.276 --> 00:22:44.179
  • I was getting ready topreach at my home church
  • 00:22:44.279 --> 00:22:46.181
  • in Brentwood, TN,sitting on the front row.
  • 00:22:46.281 --> 00:22:48.283
  • The next thing I knew,
  • 00:22:48.383 --> 00:22:49.818
  • I had an impressionfrom the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:22:49.918 --> 00:22:51.486
  • The financial marketsin New York City
  • 00:22:51.586 --> 00:22:53.154
  • were collapsing.
  • 00:22:53.254 --> 00:22:54.489
  • It was like the citywas going underwater.
  • 00:22:54.589 --> 00:22:57.959
  • All of the United Statesseemed to be shaking.
  • 00:22:58.059 --> 00:23:00.995
  • In my conscious mind,
  • 00:23:01.095 --> 00:23:02.330
  • it's like I could hearpeople saying the words,
  • 00:23:02.430 --> 00:23:04.499
  • "depression, recession,
  • 00:23:04.599 --> 00:23:06.835
  • "who'll save us?What will we do?"
  • 00:23:06.935 --> 00:23:09.103
  • The next thing I know,
  • 00:23:09.204 --> 00:23:10.438
  • the whole country seemed tobe slipping and sliding.
  • 00:23:10.538 --> 00:23:13.808
  • I thought it was going toslide in New York Harbor.
  • 00:23:13.908 --> 00:23:16.177
  • And all of a sudden,I had this impression
  • 00:23:16.277 --> 00:23:18.813
  • of our heavenly Fatherstretching out his hands
  • 00:23:18.913 --> 00:23:22.150
  • to catch the United States.
  • 00:23:22.250 --> 00:23:23.985
  • And when he did, these wordscame to my conscious mind,
  • 00:23:24.085 --> 00:23:27.288
  • "Tipping point, 17 months."
  • 00:23:27.388 --> 00:23:29.891
  • "17 months, 17 months."
  • 00:23:29.991 --> 00:23:32.560
  • This so concernedme and burdened me,
  • 00:23:32.660 --> 00:23:34.796
  • I could not get it off my heart.
  • 00:23:34.896 --> 00:23:36.431
  • By May of 2019,
  • 00:23:36.531 --> 00:23:39.100
  • I was in the mountainsof Tennessee praying.
  • 00:23:39.200 --> 00:23:41.269
  • On May 19th, I'llnever forget it.
  • 00:23:41.369 --> 00:23:43.838
  • While I was praying,
  • 00:23:43.938 --> 00:23:45.173
  • I had a strong impressionfrom the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:23:45.273 --> 00:23:47.876
  • It seemed to me like, forlack of a better word,
  • 00:23:47.976 --> 00:23:50.912
  • a river of death cameflowing out of the East.
  • 00:23:51.012 --> 00:23:54.449
  • It was merciless.
  • 00:23:54.549 --> 00:23:55.984
  • I thought, what is gettingready to come into my world?
  • 00:23:56.084 --> 00:23:59.521
  • I have no way to describe it.
  • 00:23:59.621 --> 00:24:01.422
  • Um, later as wecame into the fall,
  • 00:24:01.523 --> 00:24:03.791
  • I began to realize this wasn'tjust the United States,
  • 00:24:03.892 --> 00:24:06.394
  • it was international.
  • 00:24:06.494 --> 00:24:08.096
  • Something was goingto invade our world,
  • 00:24:08.196 --> 00:24:11.032
  • that was deadly.
  • 00:24:11.132 --> 00:24:12.367
  • In January, as COVID-19 firstbegan to come on the screen,
  • 00:24:12.467 --> 00:24:16.037
  • my burden only increased.
  • 00:24:16.137 --> 00:24:18.473
  • As it began to flowdown into the world,
  • 00:24:18.573 --> 00:24:20.842
  • then into the UnitedStates, in March,
  • 00:24:20.942 --> 00:24:22.810
  • the Lord began toquicken, Isaiah 59 to me.
  • 00:24:22.911 --> 00:24:25.880
  • Remember Isaiah 59,where the Lord says,
  • 00:24:25.980 --> 00:24:27.949
  • "I looked out on thenations of the world,
  • 00:24:28.049 --> 00:24:30.919
  • I was displeased."
  • 00:24:31.019 --> 00:24:32.253
  • But when I stepped downto do something about it,
  • 00:24:32.353 --> 00:24:35.056
  • I was appalled.
  • 00:24:35.156 --> 00:24:36.391
  • Who would intervene with me?Who would stand with me?
  • 00:24:36.491 --> 00:24:39.127
  • That kind of left me,
  • 00:24:39.227 --> 00:24:40.528
  • really on an eightor nine day journey.
  • 00:24:40.628 --> 00:24:42.363
  • How should the church intervene?What do you want of us?
  • 00:24:42.463 --> 00:24:46.234
  • As I contemplated this,the Lord reminded me
  • 00:24:46.334 --> 00:24:48.503
  • of the 40 yearsin the wilderness.
  • 00:24:48.603 --> 00:24:50.371
  • There were four differentplagues during that time.
  • 00:24:50.471 --> 00:24:54.108
  • One around the golden calf.One around gorging on quail.
  • 00:24:54.208 --> 00:24:57.579
  • The 3rd around therebellion of the Levites,
  • 00:24:57.679 --> 00:24:59.948
  • in Numbers 15 and 16.
  • 00:25:00.048 --> 00:25:01.549
  • And the fourth one in Numbers25 that Phineas stopped.
  • 00:25:01.649 --> 00:25:04.485
  • The Lord reminded me this,three men from the tribe of Levi
  • 00:25:04.586 --> 00:25:08.356
  • were used by God tomitigate that plague.
  • 00:25:08.456 --> 00:25:11.459
  • Moses, Aaron, the high priest,
  • 00:25:11.559 --> 00:25:14.028
  • and Phineas, one ofthe sub priests.
  • 00:25:14.128 --> 00:25:16.130
  • And here's whatthe Lord told me.
  • 00:25:16.230 --> 00:25:17.899
  • If Old Testament praise
  • 00:25:17.999 --> 00:25:19.634
  • could be used ofGod through prayer
  • 00:25:19.734 --> 00:25:21.903
  • to mitigate a plague
  • 00:25:22.003 --> 00:25:23.237
  • what would happen if mychurch rose up and prayed?
  • 00:25:23.338 --> 00:25:25.873
  • What would happen ifthe body of Christ
  • 00:25:25.974 --> 00:25:29.477
  • rose up as one man,
  • 00:25:29.577 --> 00:25:31.245
  • the priesthood of thebeliever rose up and prayed
  • 00:25:31.346 --> 00:25:34.248
  • and asked the Lord tomitigate this plague?
  • 00:25:34.349 --> 00:25:37.085
  • What might I do?
  • 00:25:37.185 --> 00:25:38.519
  • What might I do, ifmy church prayed?
  • 00:25:38.620 --> 00:25:42.323
  • Of course, Steve,
  • 00:25:42.423 --> 00:25:43.858
  • then I reached out to youand the rest is history.
  • 00:25:43.958 --> 00:25:46.227

  • 00:25:46.327 --> 00:25:48.029

  • 00:25:52.400 --> 00:25:55.036
  • I want to talk aboutone last impression
  • 00:25:55.136 --> 00:25:57.538
  • I received from the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:25:57.639 --> 00:25:59.540
  • I mean, it was thebeginning of April.
  • 00:25:59.641 --> 00:26:01.409
  • I was walking through myhouse, and like many of us,
  • 00:26:01.509 --> 00:26:03.978
  • I just felt the presenceof God just come on me.
  • 00:26:04.078 --> 00:26:06.514
  • And I looked up andin my mind's eye,
  • 00:26:06.614 --> 00:26:09.317
  • it seemed like I could see afoot coming down from heaven,
  • 00:26:09.417 --> 00:26:12.620
  • and these words cameto my conscious mind.
  • 00:26:12.720 --> 00:26:15.657
  • "I'm getting ready to expandmy footprint on the earth."
  • 00:26:15.757 --> 00:26:20.528
  • As I looked,
  • 00:26:20.628 --> 00:26:22.063
  • I saw all the continents,all four hemispheres,
  • 00:26:22.163 --> 00:26:24.899
  • kind of a picture in my mind,
  • 00:26:24.999 --> 00:26:26.901
  • and I saw the Lord's foot
  • 00:26:27.001 --> 00:26:28.236
  • go down into the softsoil of the earth.
  • 00:26:28.336 --> 00:26:30.972
  • I realized somehowthis COVID-19 crisis
  • 00:26:31.072 --> 00:26:34.075
  • was increasing people'shunger for God,
  • 00:26:34.175 --> 00:26:36.310

  • 00:26:36.411 --> 00:26:37.645

  • 00:26:37.745 --> 00:26:39.180
  • I saw a giant footprintand it said the church.
  • 00:26:39.280 --> 00:26:44.352
  • The next thing I know,
  • 00:26:44.452 --> 00:26:46.054
  • a wave of humanitybegan to pour into it.
  • 00:26:46.154 --> 00:26:49.957
  • And this is what I believe,Steve,
  • 00:26:50.058 --> 00:26:51.893
  • I believe, yes,through prayer,

  • God's going to helpus mitigate COVID-19.

  • we might stand on the brinkof a fresh move of God,

  • a fresh move of evangelism.
  • 00:27:05.173 --> 00:27:07.442

  • 00:34:45.833 --> 00:34:49.837
  • And one of the things hesays in Matthew chapter 6
  • 00:34:49.937 --> 00:34:52.273
  • as he's laying outthe Lord's prayer,
  • 00:34:52.373 --> 00:34:53.941
  • is right here, where he says,
  • 00:34:54.041 --> 00:34:56.277
  • I love this part, in verse 11,he says,
  • 00:34:56.377 --> 00:34:57.945
  • "Give us today our daily bread."
  • 00:34:58.045 --> 00:35:01.415
  • What a powerful choice ofwords that Jesus chose to use.
  • 00:35:01.515 --> 00:35:04.952
  • And I think all of us need toconsider its ramifications.
  • 00:35:05.052 --> 00:35:08.322
  • You see, when Jesus gavethis little phrase,
  • 00:35:08.422 --> 00:35:10.591
  • "Give us today our daily bread,"
  • 00:35:10.691 --> 00:35:12.459
  • he was really referencing
  • 00:35:12.560 --> 00:35:13.794
  • all the way back tothe Old Covenant.
  • 00:35:13.894 --> 00:35:15.863
  • When the Israelites werecoming up out of captivity,
  • 00:35:15.963 --> 00:35:18.732
  • out of Egypt,
  • 00:35:18.832 --> 00:35:20.267
  • and they were headedto the promised land.
  • 00:35:20.367 --> 00:35:21.769
  • Remember when they wereout in the desert,
  • 00:35:21.869 --> 00:35:23.470
  • in the wilderness wandering?
  • 00:35:23.571 --> 00:35:24.805
  • Well, every day theycried out to God.
  • 00:35:24.905 --> 00:35:26.507
  • And how did Godsupply their needs?
  • 00:35:26.607 --> 00:35:27.841
  • Well, he fed them with mannafrom heaven.
  • 00:35:27.942 --> 00:35:30.678
  • But do you remember?
  • 00:35:30.778 --> 00:35:32.012
  • There was one stipulationwith manna from heaven.
  • 00:35:32.112 --> 00:35:34.448
  • The stipulation was,
  • 00:35:34.548 --> 00:35:35.849
  • you could only takeenough manna for that day.
  • 00:35:35.950 --> 00:35:39.286
  • In fact, the Israelitesat different times
  • 00:35:39.386 --> 00:35:41.622
  • tried to take morefor the days to come
  • 00:35:41.722 --> 00:35:43.490
  • and tried to store upfor the months to come,
  • 00:35:43.591 --> 00:35:45.359
  • but every time they didit, that manna would rot.
  • 00:35:45.459 --> 00:35:48.295
  • And the reason why, was becauseGod was trying to teach a lesson
  • 00:35:48.395 --> 00:35:51.031
  • all the way back inthe Old Testament
  • 00:35:51.131 --> 00:35:52.766
  • that Jesus is now echoingin the New Testament.
  • 00:35:52.866 --> 00:35:55.402
  • And the thought thathe was saying is,
  • 00:35:55.502 --> 00:35:57.304
  • "I am your daily bread."
  • 00:35:57.404 --> 00:35:58.639
  • You're going tohave to look to me
  • 00:35:58.739 --> 00:36:00.341
  • for daily sustenance,for daily provision,
  • 00:36:00.441 --> 00:36:03.010
  • and it will requiretotal dependence upon me.
  • 00:36:03.110 --> 00:36:07.448
  • "So don't worry, as hesays in another part,
  • 00:36:07.548 --> 00:36:09.817
  • "About what you'llwear, what you'll eat,
  • 00:36:09.917 --> 00:36:11.719
  • what you'll drink.
  • 00:36:11.819 --> 00:36:13.053
  • "For your heavenly father
  • 00:36:13.153 --> 00:36:14.588
  • he takes care of thebirds of the earth.
  • 00:36:14.688 --> 00:36:16.624
