Journal of Joy ~ Lolo, Montana, USA ~ July 26-31, 2002
Prayer Journey and Prophetic Beginning Glory Ring Workshop
07.26.2002, Friday ~ We drove to Spokane, Washington this morning for the first day of our family reunion and stayed with my brother Mark, and his family.
Signs along the way: Special Operations, Columbia, Keystone, 69, Nuclear Eagle, Elite Fleet, Brave, England, Daniel Company, Cougar, Expedition, Encore. 07.27.02, Saturday ~ In mid-morning my daughter, Angela, two-year-old grandson, Elijah and I headed for Glacier National Park, about a 6-hour, drive from Spokane, Washington, through the States of Idaho and Montana. Absolutely breath-taking scenery…this must be a place where GOD spent a lot of time as the landscape has HIS signature written all over it. Majestic mountains, expansive green valley floors dotted with a kaleidoscope of colorful wildflowers, clear mountain streams and fresh water rivers, Tamarac and white pine trees thickly sprinkled over the hills, all luxuriously bathed in warm sunlight from heaven. The highlight of the journey was spotting an American Bald Eagle perched on the edge of a nest in the Montana territory. It was a beautiful and extravagant journey blessed by abundantly by our FATHER God!
Signs along the way: Liberty Lake (This must be the lake where people are baptized into JESUS and find Liberty in HIM), Friendship, Single Source, Swift, Pace Arrow (2x), Coronado, Rose Lake, Covenant Transport, Silver Valley, Sun Crest, 69, Chain Removal Area, Sun Rise, South Wind (3x), 33, River Access, Isaiah 40:31.
07.28.2002, Sunday ~ In the late morning, four generations headed toward the SON! My mother, beautiful daughter, wonderful grandson and I drove up to Logan Pass via Going to the Sun Road. This is one of the most beautiful places on earth. We embraced the LORD’s creative beauty of Heaven’s Gate, Haystack Creek, St. Mary’s Lake and Logan Pass where we poured Holy Anointing Oil. In the afternoon, we joined others for a scenic boat ride around Lake McDonald and learned that the Kootenai Native American tribe had originally named the lake, Sacred Dancing Waters. Yes, we poured a little Holy Anointing Oil into the lake. Glacier National Park has one million acres with 700 hundred miles of hiking trails enveloped with some of the most beautiful scenery on the planet.
In the late afternoon, I headed south for Lolo, Montana in preparation for the Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop to be held the next day.
Signs along the way: Crossroads, Missoula, Montana (M&M), M on the mountain, L on the mountain, (Majestic Lord), Round Up Rodeo, branded, unbranded.
As I drove into the Missoula Montana basin, the atmosphere was like driving into a “prayer bowl” in the Spirit, and I sensed that many faithful intercessors had gone before me (Revelation 5:8, 8:3-4). The Holy Spirit directed me to downtown Missoula, along the Clark Fork River next to the Missoula Train Station, where I prayed over the city and poured Holy Anointing Oil in the river.
I called the Workshop host, received directions to Lolo and arrived safely at my destination. One of our ministry intercessors hosted the Workshop in her home. She lived on Expedition Street, following a turn on Lewis and Clark Drive. It was a divine meeting of pioneers in the Spirit, forerunners of the LORD.
We took a few minutes to fellowship. Then we setup and prayed for tomorrow’s Workshop. Our lodging was along the edge of Lolo Creek, a few miles west up Hwy 12. It was very different to sleep without the sounds of sirens, airplanes, cars and apartment living. Their home was way out in the country and a place of extreme quiet and delightful peace!
07.29.2002, Monday ~ The Workshop was delightfully easy with a minimum of resistance, for which I am very grateful to the HGRM Prayer Shield. We developed the different facets of the HGRM Covenantal Prayer Shield this year and it is evident that intercessory prayer makes a difference.
At the Workshop there were women from 2 states, 5 churches and 4 cities. Three came from Eureka, Montana, which is a sister city in the spirit realm to Eureka, California. The word Eureka means “I found it!” so we prayed that the residents in these cities would find and receive salvation in Jesus Christ, through HIS atonement. Those in attendance from Eureka, Montana confirmed the connection with Eureka, California as they had recently seen a double rainbow over a bridge on October 18, 2000, a similar experience to the rainbow that I saw over the bridge in Eureka, California.
After the Workshop a group of us enjoyed table fellowship and then went to High Point Church to pray and share the Bread of Life and New Covenant Wine. It was a divine evening in the Spirit!
07.30.2002, Tuesday ~ In the morning, before departing for Spokane, Washington, in the afternoon, we went on a prayer journey to pray over Clark Fork City Church, the Salvation Army, the government buildings in downtown Missoula, Lolo Lake, Bitter Root River, Lolo School and Lolo Creek.
Signs along the way: Scepter, Endeavor, Proverbs 3:6, Crossroads, Cougar, Keystone, Hummingbird, Gold Nugget.
I once again enjoyed my brother’s hospitality in Spokane for the evening and then drove home to Gresham, the next day. As I have spent 24 hours on road trips in five days and four different beds, I do believe the LORD is teaching me how to travel!
07.31.2002, Wednesday ~ A safe journey along a familiar path of beauty.
Signs along the way: Explorer 3333, Covenant Transport, Star, Vineyard, Pioneer, I am the way the truth and the life, CF (red and green letters), The Lewis and Clark Trail, Swift (3x), Whirlwind Restoration, England, Trust Jesus, Golden Spikes, and Midnight Blue Trail Blazer.
