Prophetic Encounter at Pearl Harbor Inspires Urgent Global Call to Purim Prayer

Is the world moving into global war? This prospect became very real to Jolene and me during a long-planned ministry trip to Hawaii last week.

The day after we arrived, we felt strongly impressed to pray at Pearl Harbor with a small team covering our journey. The Lord encountered us profoundly there, giving us a clear prophetic warning as well as surprising hope for what's ahead.

Finally, during this encounter at Pearl Harbor, the Lord showed us to issue a global call to Purim Prayer. As with Queen Esther when her people were faced with an existential threat, we can see a turnaround. The Haman spirit can be exposed and restrained. And as in Esther's day, the Lord is calling us to pray accordingly!

Pearl Harbor—Pray to Avert a Surprise Attack

On Dec. 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was the target of a surprise attack by Japanese airmen that took out much of our Pacific fleet and launched us headlong into World War II. It was essentially the 9/11 of the Greatest Generation. Eventually, the course of the war turned. America won. But there is no bravado embedded within the memorials marking the attack. Instead, the hallowed grounds provoked within us a renewed humility and sense of our own vulnerability.

And as we prayed on the grounds of this memorial, I sensed a dire warning from the Lord. We must pray to avert another surprise attack on America, similar to Pearl Harbor but even greater in scope.

Friends, it's one thing to warn about this potential—many already have. It's another thing altogether to be sent by the Lord from Washington D.C., where our home is across the street from the Pentagon, all the way to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, to perceive and issue the warning.

How? When? What are the details? What can we do? First and foremost, we must pray that the Lord intervene to confuse these plans and avert the attack. Let's see this progression of war stopped.

Prophetically, I have only received a few clear perceptions about the war in the Ukraine. First, for Putin, the front is not the front. In other words, Ukraine is by no means the totality of Putin's aspirations for global conquest. It is for this reason that Ukraine must become the front where his war efforts are stopped.

Second, again I sensed the Lord clearly warning to pray against a surprise attack. Through cyberspace? An attack on our power grid? I don't know. But these are areas in which we need to keep watch.

Declare God's Victory Procession

The Lord was not caught off guard by the Ukraine invasion. In fact, at the Global Prophetic Summit last November, Chuck Pierce prophetically warned about war by spring.

Here's some good news. From these sacred grounds at Pearl Harbor, the Lord showed me His victory procession. He highlighted Isaiah 42. "Sing to the Lord a new song, sing His praise from the end of the earth!" (Isa. 42:10a, NASB). Note that Hawaii is exactly halfway around the world from the covenant land of Israel. Somehow the Lord had orchestrated our steps to be literally at the "end of the earth" from Israel's vantage point, just as war broke out.

Isaiah 42 continues: "The Lord will march forth as a warrior, He will arouse his zeal like a man of war. He will ... raise a war cry! And He will utterly prevail against his enemies" (Isa. 42:13).

I believe this is a word for us all. God has initiated a victory procession, even from the ends of the earth, to turn this war. While gazing at the placid waters where America's greatest ships were once destroyed, I realized something profound. What looked to be an initial defeat soon was turned into an overcoming victory.

The Lord arose from Pearl Harbor in a victory procession during World War II. America engaged—in prayer and fighting. And the victory that came not only preserved the free world, but it even brought to birth the nation of Israel!

From Pearl Harbor, I saw how His victory procession is now being established to overcome in our day. Purim was highlighted by the Lord for the global body of Christ to fast, pray and seek His turnaround. The Lord is marching forth as a warrior. And when all is said and done, He will utterly prevail!

With this at heart, please engage with us in this global call to Purim prayer. He is granting a turnaround!

Urgent—a Global Call to Purim Prayer

United call to prayer next Wednesday, 3-16-2022, and beyond. Directive received through a prophetic encounter at the WWII Memorial in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

The holy day of Purim bears witness to God's enduring power to preserve His covenant people. As in the days of Esther, many peoples and even nations now face an existential threat due to the rise of modern-day Hamans on a global scale. Ukraine is already being plundered by an inexcusable war. As the Haman spirit arises, it is clear that many other nations—including Taiwan, Israel, America and others—are being targeted as well. The potential for widespread destruction cannot be emphasized enough. The prospect of a third world war is even at hand.

Further, this spirit is also seeking access to many spheres on a more localized level, with the ultimate intent of sabotaging the blessings and freedoms entrusted to you by the Lord.

Purim teaches us that a turnaround can be gained. Therefore, as a united voice of national and global apostolic networks, prophetic alliances and prayer movements, we ask that you designate Wednesday, March 16, 2022, the beginning of Purim, as a day to humble yourselves in united prayer and fasting to see this Haman spirit exposed, repudiated and restrained. Together we can shut the gates of sabotage. Together we can see God's pathway to victory secured!

We further ask that you extend your season of prayer, as directed by the Lord, throughout this perilous season:

1. Engage in worship, prayer and repentance for defiance of God within our lives, within church, culture and government. (2 Chron. 7:14, Esth. 4, 7, Joel 2).

2. Renounce all forms of idolatry and restore God's covenant over your spheres. Then invoke His covenantal protection! (2 Kings 17:38-39, Ps. 91).

3. Receive daily Communion.

4. Partner with God in securing an open heaven, with the devourer restrained, through a renewed dedication to the divine exchange of tithes and offerings (Mal. 3:8-12). Make 2022 a year of the tithe.

5. Devote every Tuesday to consistent, contending prayer over the destinies of your sons and daughters as well as for the nation. Find more info at
