Kentucky Prayer Shield History
Several years ago, I was working with a national ministry and the Lord spoke to me about rebuilding the walls of righteousness. Nehemiah mentions the people who caught the vision of wall building. He said each man rebuilt the wall in his own back yard. God asked me what I was doing to rebuild the walls of righteousness where I live. Well, I wasn’t doing anything. I asked Him what could I do and He responded,.. What do you do best? I answered, "pray," He said, "gather intercessors to pray."
I asked Him to help me and He did, shortly thereafter I met Kim Laurence and we realized we shared the exact same vision and that’s how it started. One by one Kim connected through God encounters with many Intercessors in our area and we are still connecting. We’ve been hosting prayer meetings ever since.
God also connected us with leaders Rick & Jennifer Curry and Doug & Linda Abner, who encouraged and prayed with us. They carry the same vision we are praying into. We appreciate their leadership and oversight.
In 2019, God was speaking to me about connecting with Intercessors in a unique way. I could see strategy and connection, I could see intercessors who were carrying messages from heaven that needed to be released in season. I saw Kentucky stadiums filled with young
people getting saved and worshiping God. I could see Gods focus and it was the harvest! It had the feeling of a cross between a Billy Graham crusade and a Lou Engle, "The Call" meeting.
The Shield has primarily been stealth until now. One of our assignments is training and equipping, and we’ve been doing that. At the beginning of this year, God spoke to Kim and I to open up the Ky Prayer Shield to other Intercessors, and the Intercessors we work with have been praying with us and are in agreement. We really didn’t know how to do that so we prayed.
The virus was a catalyst to bring us together, and Zoom is a tool God is using to unite many in this time.
We have a vision to pray, equip, and believe God to transform our State and Nation! Intercessors in Kentucky and across our nation are uniting to pray. We have not resigned ourselves to defeat, we believe in God's transforming power. What a remarkable time we live! God is moving throughout the earth with power.
We are praying for the manifest Glory of God to sweep in and do a reset of hearts and minds! We are praying for God to bring a harvest of souls, transformation and reformation to our communities, for protection, healing, deliverance, provision, salvation and much more.Please join us!
Intercessors in Kentucky and across our nation are hearing the heart of Jesus the Great Intercessor, and uniting to pray. We believe if we humble ourselves and pray, He will heal our land and bring awakening and transformation to our State and Nation.
