This year's theme was "Moving Forward !!! An
indelible impact in the earth."
"Jesus said that we have been appointed to
bear fruit and that our fruit should remain." Every gathering the fruit that
remains is to produce a change in the hearts and minds not only in those who
attended but all who "Received the Good News After the Event". (Heb 4:2) The
vision was written and made plain so we all can run in the same direction with
Spiritual Clarity. (Heb 2:2)

Embrace God's Perfect Will
His Revelatory Fresh Move Void of
The Jericho Prayer movement Crescendo was
a day ordained by God.
God called us into a solemn assembly to be
empowered and to empower our youth. I believe it was a move of God that pierced
the hearts of God's people. The youth that were there showed great leadership
by setting themselves apart and committing to be at this event. As we united as
one and were banded together, the power of God fell. My heart was overwhelmed
with the presence of God that was there. God sent a clarion call to his people
to come together on one accord and to pray for the nation in such a critical
time. I was honored to be a part of this event.
Reflections of the spiritual victory at
The event brought to mind what my Professor
of Military Science & Tactics (PMST) said to us Cadets we fretted about
having to participate in a scheduled parade, "It rains on the Army, not in the
Saturday's program proceeded as if there were
no rain. Though the rain was pouring, one got the feeling that we barely knew
it was falling!
The demeanor and tenacity with which the
youth were postured to receive -- they appeared focused, sincere, open, and
serious about receiving & absorbing what was directed at them. It brought
to mind I Corinthians 16:9, "Because a great door for effective work had been
opened to us, but there are obstacles" . and we just trampled over the
obstacles, i.e., the rain just solidified our determination, producing a spirit
of unity, respect, and determination to not, "Let nobody turn me around!" In
reality, the heartfelt determination, seriousness, and focus, also brought to
mind Luke 9:62,"Whosoever puts his hands to the plow & look back, is not
fit for the kingdom of heaven" -- an indelible object lesson for the youth to
chuck away in their bag of tools that will surface when they find themselves in
tight spots later in adulthood.
And as I shared with Sharon & John Lee,
when I was in Korea patrolling the DMZ, during the monsoon seasons, had we
chose to sleep-in when it rained instead of patrolling the DMZ, it would have
allowed the North Koreans to cross over into South Korea and possibly take over
the South Korean Government because their determination was like robots,
Finally, Kudos to Dr. Boone, who gave the
charge on the preceding Friday morning prayer line that the show will go on,
come, "Hell or High Waters."
Reflections on Braving the
Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior,
It was a blessing to stand with the faithful
saints of God who braved the weather on Saturday morning and persevered to push
through, to bless the Name of the Lord and to declare and decree God's plan and
purpose over our leaders (Youth and others). It is critically important that
we, as the children of the Most High God, put actions to our words by being
faithful and show up, even when there are obstacles. The rain was simply a
test. Many events are cancelled or delayed due to rain, but when it comes to
the things of God, we have to know that when we walk in faith, God meets us as
we walk in faith. Noah did not stop building the ark just because it had never
rained. And to add to his test, the people mocked him for being obedient to
As we were standing and singing praises to
God, I could only think, "Lord, thank you for reigning on Your throne, and
thank You for raining Your Spirit on us." As the saints stood strong, and the
number of people continued to grow, I felt the anointing of God and believe
that our determination to glorify God, was a sweet smelling savor to God's
As we stood with expectation of the Lord, my
soul continually sang, "Let it rain, open the flood gates of heaven and let it
Isaiah 45:8, Rain down, you heavens,
from above, And let the skies pour down righteousness; Let the earth open, let
them bring forth salvation, And let righteousness spring up together. I, the
Lord, have created it."
It was great to be a part of the Crescendo!
Reflections on a Colorful Sea of
I was awakened very early by the sound of
heavy rain coming down on our house; remnants of hurricane Harvey. I looked out
the window to see the heavy droplets pouring down from the dark sky, and
wondered how we would be able to meet the next morning. On my way in I called
Dr. Boone. Of course she was in her usual upbeat and optimistic mood.
Its a glorious morning! she cried out over the phone.
Just a light rain coming down.
As I approached the modest crowd assembled at
the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, I took notice of the colorful sea of
umbrellas. I assumed my usual comfortable position near the back of the crowd,
watching the people around me praise the Lord without taking any notice of the
moderate rain pouring down. It was quiet. No loud amplifiers pounding my ears.
Just the harmonious symphony of polyphonic voices; a sweet aroma of prayer and
worship ascending to heaven. I was quickly called into the center of the group
for prayer. The rain miraculously turned into a light mist. There was something
remarkably intimate about the whole setting, as if a wall of protection were
surrounding us. What had been a curse over Texas had now turned into a blessing
Pray for Israel, Dr. Boone
whispered into my ear. She grabbed my arm tight and I began to thank the Lord
for bringing all of us together as one new man. The Lord then
resounded a powerful prayer for the salvation of Israel. Gods Kingdom
advanced, yet another incremental, but significant step. What we prayed had
already been written in heaven, however, as we prayed it was sealed here in the
earth. For it is written: Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in
heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven (Matthew
Reflections on Elijah
Lord, Thank you for Your blessing and
sovereignty with which You drew us into the Mantle of Elijah! And we know
that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to
those who are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
It rained, but we all perseveredfor the
Name of Jesus and His Kingdom! If we dont, who wouldparticularly in
the rainy morning? Hey, Jesus was, and will continue to be, with us Rain or
Shine! And Hes worthy!
It only and genuinely excited us to see this
awesome privilege and opportunity to shout the Name of Jesus and life His Name
up! No agenda but the corporate desire to see His Kingdom come and His smile of
joy over this nation!
And I think He answered! Our praise was so
uplifting and so connected that with our praise my gaze went up and
stayed at the heaven, for I KNEW Hes enthroned at the highest place and
He is worthy to receive all our worship.
I had to utter, God really wanted to
bless us. What else? For it was such a privilege to suddenly find us
entering into the mantle of those who went before us in perseverancelike
Elijah who prayed for rain and when God poured it braved through it. Yes, the
spirit of Elijah that Elisha so desired! God graciously blessed us an
opportunity to tap into and enter into that realm.
How I wish and am confident we will never be
the same but will always cherish and operate in the spirit of Elijah. What an
utmost honor it is that with this spirit we can all prepare for the way of His
reign and return! Jesus, come and reign in this city, the nation, the
communities, the nations. Lord, You are the King of Glory mighty in battle!!
Meanwhile, JPM will continue on, breaking all
the walls of Jericho, proclaiming all the ancient doors to open the gates for

JPM Crescendo 2017: What was the
Without question Jericho Prayer Movement 2017
was executed in the ordination of God¡¦s will for the day. In
spite of the inclement weather and rainy day, the assigned remnant of believers
showed up in force to render unto God all of the praises, all of the honor and
all of the glory due Him! It was evident the prayers that blanketed the day in
the months and days that proceeded had been heard, and the fruit was in our
Youth of all ages were present, without
murmur, without complaint as they huddled under rain drenched umbrellas, giving
their full attention to the program assigned by God for their good. So what was
this fruit that Crescendo 2017 bore and how will it remain? What must be done
to preserve it? The Word of God! Every Word that proceeded out of the mouths of
those assigned on the program was Words designed to take root in the hearts of
those assembled. Like a skillful surgeon, each one delicately and intentionally
delivered the Word of God to the hearts and past the flesh of those listening.
Prayers were prayed, songs of praise and worship were released and then the
Word in the well-executed form of Charges from the Fathers to the Youth Leaders
(seek the council of God and pray for His wisdom in directing your efforts to
spark revival in the earth), then Impartation from the Youth Leaders to the NOW
Generation (understand that you are Christ's ambassadors chosen to represent
Him in the earth by telling others about Jesus.) and lastly the Declarations of
the NOW Generation (I declare peace in my mind and spirit. Peace I leave with
you; not as the world gives, Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be
afraid. John 14:27) led by an eleven year old peer of many of the youth in
Areas of Follow Through so that Fruit Will
- To understand JPMC bore fruit to produce
change in the hearts and minds of the Youth Leaders and NOW Gen.
- A strategy must be formed to capture the
fruit in their lives. We must not allow it to fall to the ground and spoil, rot
and die. Woe to leadership who allow such poor stewardship.
- The youth are longing to ¡§do
something¡¨ tangible with what they received. In the doing,
confidence and boldness are obtained and fortified in their lives.
- Senior leadership must work together in a
collaborative effort to strategize a means to accomplish this.
- Leadership must be the door openers of
opportunity for the youth. (eg: Arrange a day to visit a
children¡¦s shelter to distribute toiletries.) Someone in
leadership needs to make the connections with the shelters and position our
youth for such an assignment.
- Youth must be trained. Without a strategy,
programs may tend to produce performance moments vs. participator moments,
meaning youth stay in an atmosphere of ¡§inside the 4
walls¡¨ getting, getting, and getting without a chance to get out and
give out of the abundance of what they have received. Rot happens quickly this
way and it¡¦s to the delight of no one but the devil.
- Our youths must be raised up to recognize
their own unique gifting and given an avenue to express them.
Much was charged, imparted and declared.
These words need to be rehearsed in the hearts and out of the mouths of the
hearers. Faith is built in this fashion. Leadership was encouraged to pass
along what they saw and heard to their circles of influence and reiterate the
charges, impartations and declarations to all age groups.
