One of the reasons Pray Oregon Connectors gathered in Turner, OR, the day before Franklin Graham arrived, was to pray for hearts and minds to be prepared for the message Franklin Graham brought. We asked for God to rebuild our nation and restore hope to His people. David’s Tent Oregon was directly in the center of the Capitol Mall.
Pray Oregon leader Peter Carlson, shares, “Friday, June 24 through Monday, July 4 Complete Joy Ministries, Pray Oregon, Salem House of Prayer, and Mid Valley Women of Christ hosted 10 days of day and night worship and intercession. Teams from all over the state, and even WA. took their time at their own expense to travel to Salem, leading 2-hour sets, with people coming and going as they were available.
At the beginning of June the Lord showed us to have a Tent of Healing alongside the Tent of Meeting. The Tent of Healing was staffed 10am – 10pm each day with teams from healing rooms, churches, and individuals who the Lord has raised up to pray with a steady trickle of people coming and asking for prayer for all sorts of healing in body, soul, and spirit.
Following the rally on Tuesday we held a gathering for pastors and prayer leaders to fellowship and connect at Salem House of Prayer to foster ongoing prayer in our state with the connectors from our 9 regions of Pray Oregon serving as a point of communication. The prayer room was packed out with about 70 of us worshipping and then getting on our knees and faces before the Lord calling out for the move and work of Holy Spirit to continue increasing in Oregon and beyond.”
There are many testimonies of the Lord touching people’s lives and our prayer teams ministering to those who came to the Tent of Meeting and the Tent of Healing throughout this event. In the photo above you can see the white peak of David’s Tent rising above the thousands of people in attendance. “It was a powerful representation”, as Lynn Ferder says, “of the humble government of God influencing the government of man.”
The Oregon Tabernacle Tent is available through Complete Joy Ministries throughout the Old Oregon Territory (WA, OR, ID, western MT, and southern B.C.) as needs arise for worship & intercession. The next deployment is planned for Medford, OR, the first week in September. David’s Tent Oregon is expected to be an annual statewide gathering of the body of Christ dedicated to worship and prayer for the purpose of humbly seeking the Lord and turning our hearts to Him.
