Journal of Joy ~ 58 Days ~ Tennessee & Kentucky ~ February & March 2011
The known purpose of the trip was to set aside time to write my third book, A Connection of Joy and edit/update/revise our ministry website. When making travel plans, the Holy Spirit was clear about 58 days. HIS specific intercessory prayer assignment for me was to pray over the New Madrid Fault. Therefore, it has been my prayer and intentional purpose during this time in Tennessee to decree, declare, pray and release the following 58 Covenant Promises of God, each day of my journey, particularly in relationship to the New Madrid Earthquake Fault Zone in this area in addition to other strategic targets. I warmly invite those living in the territory to continue the prayer and release.
58 Covenant Blessings recorded in the Holy Bible: Exodus 31:3; Psalm 92:12; Psalm 34:7; John 14:18; Luke 10:19; Psalm 122:1; Isaiah 40:31; Exodus 3:8; John 3:16; James 1:12; Romans 1:17; 1 Kings 8:56; Psalm 127:3; Psalm 5:12; Jeremiah 29:13; Matthew 6:14; 2 Thessalonians 3:3; Psalm 55:22; Isaiah 41:8; Deuteronomy 28:4; Ephesians 2:8; Proverbs 3:6; John 10:10; Jeremiah 30:17; 1 Corinthians 2:9; John 7:38; Romans 8:24; Job 32:8; Mark 11:24; Psalm 3:3; Job 37:23; Proverbs 9:10; Psalm 91:16, Romans 5:8; Genesis 2:24; Psalm 36:5; Matthew 19:26; Isaiah 61:1; Isaiah 54:13; Exodus 9:16; Matthew 5:5; Leviticus 26:9; Isaiah 43:2; 1 Kings 17:14; Matthew 11:28; Psalm 23:3; John 5:21; Deuteronomy 8:18; John 6:54; Jeremiah 17:8; Psalm 125:1; Isaiah 58:11; Psalm 91:4; Proverbs 2:11; Ephesians 6:13-17; 1 Corinthians 1:30; Isaiah 55:11; Psalm 1:3.

Then, Agnes, an 80-year-old woman met us along a dirt road where we parked in search of the Mississippi River levee. She literally ran to get her car and then led us along the Mississippi River levee to the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Dena and Pat took a moment to pray a blessing over her.

It is with fond affection, deep appreciation, and heartfelt gratitude to the HGRM family and friends in Tennessee and Kentucky who warmly welcomed me, showered me with southern hospitality, and graciously allowed me the privilege of being in their lives during these 58 days. It was the first time in 15 years of ministry that the LORD sent me anywhere for this length of time. Among my greatest joys was the privilege of spending quality time with more than 12 HGRM Intercessors...a rare gift indeed! As always, my prayer is that HIS plans and purposes were accomplished, and HIS name was glorified for HIS Eternal Glory.
