07.12.2009, Sunday ~ In the morning, HGRM ministered an Experiential Communion Service to the local gathering of believers at Decherd, Tennessee. In the afternoon, we took a brief Prayer Journey through Monteagle, Tennessee and provided an Ordination Service for Wander Wright and Noellie Johnson.
07.15.2009, Wednesday ~ The Holy Spirit inspired me to ask Teesha from Shelbyville, Tennessee, Freedom from Monteagle, Tennessee and Susan from Springfield, Tennessee if they would join me on a three-day, eight-State Prayer Prophetic Prayer Journey. This was a first for each of us. It was confirmed to each of them to say “yes” and so we prepared with table fellowship, prayer, and mapping out the journey, each adding their portion. Our supplies included Journals, Shofar, Bible, Worship Hammer, Saddle Bags, Staff/Rod, Water, Anointing Oil, Glory Ring, Flags, Kosher Salt and Sword. The LORD miraculously and generously provided a “1994 Crown Victoria” vehicle, safe lodging and funds for travel all within a matter of hours. The combined journal pages are fifty plus, therefore, the following is a very condensed version.
07.16.2009, Thursday ~ The sun had not yet awakened in Tennessee by our departure time. Freedom and Susan were the drivers for the journey. Teesha, Susan and Freedom kept journals as well. My portion was to pray, contend, war, worship and praise. On the first day, we stopped eight times to pray and touched down in Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina (Cherokee National Forest and Eastern Continental Divide) and South Carolina. If you have not traveled in the Southern USA before, many road signs declare Christianity in various form and message, this is not the way of Northwestern USA. Signs are just one of the many ways that the Holy Spirit may communicate a message to those that are listening.

07.17.2009, Friday ~ Departing at 7:12 AM, having completed 641 miles, we are moving forward towards Florida. We have found the warfare tension to increase as we take territory for the LORD. Each place we stop is intentional with Scriptures, Declarations, Repentance, Forgiveness, Decrees, Worship and Praise. We are relentless. We are determined. We are passionate. Among the significant happenings of today is that one of HGRM Intercessors called to give us prayer support and 2 Timothy 2:24.
Also we stopped when we reached 888 miles of our journey at 12:12 PM, Emerald Coast, Rainbow Beach, USAF 8th Eglin, near Trumpet Lane, right before St. Joseph State Park. As we viewed the ocean I kept seeing a “black velvet wall” over the Gulf. When I inquired of the LORD what I heard was, “It is not a tornado, not a hurricane, not a tsunami, not lightning or thunderstorm.” Still I did not recognize what I was seeing in the spirit realm, even though I knew it was a warning from the LORD. So we prayed that the “black wall” would not come to shore but stay confined to the depths of the ocean. Now as I am reading journal notes from Freedom, I realize the “Black Wall” was the oil spill in the Gulf Coast April 20, 2010. How grateful we are to be sent as forerunners to pray protection over God’s people, land and resources.
At Navarre Beach, we wrote “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem” in the sand and Teesha blew the Shofar in all four directions.
The LORD gave us a mandate, “Go full circle! Leave no gaps!”
We made eight stops today as well as yesterday. We have traveled a total of 1237.5 miles and are grateful to have arrived safely in New Orleans, LA. We traveled through Florida, Alabama and Mississippi today.

God.” “Recession 101-No One Can Re-Possess Your Future,” “Jesus Christ is Lord, Not a Swear Word.”
07.18.2009, Saturday ~ We awoke in New Orleans, and the Super Dome was the first place to pray, followed by the French Quarter and the waterfront. We stopped in Slidell, Louisiana and alongside the Louisiana-Mississippi border Rest Area to pray.
Susan wrote the following spontaneous poem as we traveled along Hwy 59 (Revelation 5:9):
Love Divine, Hearts Entwine, Thou Art Mine, Rise and Shine, Spirit Align, Protect the Wine, Crushed from Vine, Fruit of Nine, Glory Pine, Joy Supine, Freely Dine, Finish Line.
Today, the LORD had each of us wear a Tiara in a given State to release the next generation of young women to be Princesses of the Kingdom of God. And to rebuke the forces of darkness for stealing America’s Young Women into unrighteous and unholy lifestyles.
We crossed Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee today completing our journey with the odometer reading 5088.7. Praise the LORD for a safe journey. We give thanks to the LORD for inviting us on such an extraordinary adventure.
