USA Watch: An "Upper Room Awakening!"


 
 

A watchman call to rise and build community across the nation

 
Then I said to the nobles, the rulers, and the rest of the people, “The work is great and extensive, and we are separated far from one another on the wall. Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us.”
 Nehemiah 4:19-20

America is at a tipping point!   The trumpet is sounding over America.  The USA Watch is an invite and call for those who desire to build, connect, and contend for the spiritual awakening, transformation and redemption of America. The walls Nehemiah restored allowed people to walk, communicate and consequently defend Jerusalem.  We can no longer face the challenges today without joining ranks. It's time for an "Upper Room Awakening" to join and build the walls of prayer across time zones of America. This is your invite to rise and build!  Participation does not interfere or compete with any formed ministry but will strengthen and encourage all involved.  
 
Vision:  An “Upper Room Awakening,” a watchman invitation and call to rise and build community across the nation through love, communication and relationship

Why Participate? (USA Watch participants are automatically part of the Global Watch)
  • Participation will link you to a growing family of watchmen and give you the benefit of insights from others across America.
  • Links you to something bigger than what you can do alone. 
  • Opens access to key issues and critical alerts across USA and other nations
  • Access to communication tools to assist in dispensing critical alerts you are seeing in your time zone/nation for prayer support
  • Contribution to the watch will reap you, your church, ministry the benefits of ongoing united prayer and the breakthrough from 4th watch coverage
  • Receive support and help in mobilizing "watch" and culture of prayer in your church/ministries/communities
  • Collaboration between regions, prayer streams, and ministries as barriers are removed and relationships develop.
Who Participates?
This is a call and invitation to all who desire and see the need to connect, collaborate and build community to more effectively face the challenges today (Isaiah 62:6; Jeremiah 6:17; Ezekiel 3:17).  The USA Watch does not interfere with formed ministries, but rather is a venue for building strength and communication for all involved.  Participants keep their identity and call in ministry but affiliate through collaboration and agreement on core values and common vision. No person is too small or ministry too big to participate.  
     Our initial goal is to find 70 watchmen/time zone (10/day) that will contend, build, and connect particularly on the 4th watch for a greater manifestation of the full vision of the watch to emerge (see expected outcomes below).

"Ignite the Night" emphasis on the 4th watch:  
The 4th watch (3am-6am) is the New Testament version of the Old Testament night watch (2am-6am). When mobilized as a corporate call in cities and regions, the 4th watch carries significant spiritual weight and can pave the way for stronger prayer environments to arise.  Biblically strategic events take place on the night watches:Jacob wrestled with God and met Him face to face, Gen 32:22-31
  • The Israelites crossed the Red Sea, Exodus 14:25-36
  • Gideon defeated the Midianites (middle watch), Judges 7: 19-24
  • Saul defeated the Ammonites, 1 Samuel 11:11
  • Angels appeared to the shepherds to announce the birth of Jesus, Luke 2:8
  • Peter and Jesus walk on water, Mt. 14:25-26
  • Jesus was resurrected from the dead, Mt. 28:1For more information on the 4th watch and its import click here.  

Time Zone Participation:
America's time zones represent defined regions in which community and connection in prayer can develop.  The 4th watch is a defined time frame in which participants in the time zones can build and connect.  As time zones begin to connect, bridging can occur to build the ramparts of prayer across the nation.  "Pass the Torch" calls from 5am-6am (the end of the 4th watch) are forming across the nation to intervene and pray for the turning of our nation.

Benefits of 4th watch mobilization:  
The advantage of corporate agreement towards this strategic time to pray carries the following potential for cities, regions:
  • A small remnant of committed people can make a significant spiritual impact for the advance of God's Kingdom 
  • Strategic time to pray and break through spiritual strongholds (Luke 12:38)
  • Participation builds relational connections between people, churches, and regions in the time zones promoting powerful agreement
  • Promotes accurate discernment through relationship and accountability
  • It is doable and sustainable.  Most cities/regions can sustain with a small group of committed “watchmen”
  • It promotes unity and breaks down barriers that have divided cities and regions
  • No church/ministry is too big, or person too small to participate
  • It releases creative strategy for further prayer/worship advanceFurthermore and more importantly, God is simply doing it.  He is waking many people up between 3am-6am.  We just have to understand why it is happening and respond.
Expected outcome for the USA Watch:
Purposeful ongoing prayer in community is the functional dynamic of a "watch."  The impact of "watches" connecting and building will be the igniting power for transformation in cities/nations and re-engage prayer and missions for a vast end-time harvest and the emergence of an alert and ready bride.​  These outcomes can be identified as follows:​
  • Dynamic re-engagement of prayer with missions
  • Culture of prayer and worship to increase in our cities and regions reflected as corporate HOP, communities of prayer arise.
  • Stronger collaboration between regions, prayer streams and ministries as barriers are removed and relationships develop
  • Testimony of God’s intervention to rise across America through salvation, healing, restoration
  • Realignment politically, socially with biblical values.
  • Prayer ministries to increase and expand within churches as a functional identity of the church and increased support of HOP efforts from local church bodies
  • Creative strategies released for needed social, political, and cultural intervention
  • America to develop a model that will feed into the nations as part of our spiritual heritage and calling:  Psalm 132:3-4;17 (Jean Ribault spoke Psalm 132 by heart over America, October 12, 1565 before being martyred near present day Jacksonville, Florida)
  • Transformation, spiritual renewal, revival!
