Cinco de Mayo Initiative from April 15-May 5, 2011
We continue to pray for the United States, Mexico and the Border. We must never forget what is going on our Southern Border. Even though, we received many breakthroughs during our 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting, leading up to the National Day of Prayer, we must remain on the wall of intercession continually. Thank you for all of your support and participation.
The 21-Day Prayer Strike Strategy
The Cinco de Mayo Prayer Initiative and preceding 21-Day Prayer Strike involves several components offering different levels of participation:
1. 21-Day Prayer Guide
A committee of prayer leaders from both sides of the border have developed comprehensive prayer guide on border issues. This document is key, as it will unite us in our intercessory focus during the 21-Day Prayer Strike. A printer-friendly version of the prayer guide is available from website, and is to be used by Prayer Wall and Nights of Worship and Warfare participants.
2. 21-Day Prayer Wall
Every prayer lifted up is another arrow striking the ground! Help us build a 21-day 24/7 wall of intercession to stand in the gap according to 2 Chronicles 7:14 and ask the Lord to heal our nations. Churches, ministries and individuals may sign up through the HPN website to cover one or more 30-minute prayer watches during these 21 days. For each of the 21 days we will provide a daily prayer focus.
3. 21 Nights of Worship and Warfare
The HPN will host nightly intercessory worship gatherings in the heart of the DFW Metroplex to lift up the Name of Jesus over our nation's southwest border. Intercessory worship teams from various churches and houses of prayer will be leading these nightly intercessory worship watches. Believers are encouraged to join us live, via web stream, or host their own nightly worship gatherings in cities across the United States and Mexico.
4. Border Prayer Journeys
Throughout the 21 Day Prayer Strike, teams of prayer leaders both in Mexico and in the four bordering states will pray all along the Mexico-U.S.A. border, gathering intercessors to lead in prayers of repentance and prophetic acts of reconciliation at each border entry point.
5. Cinco de Mayo Prayer – National Day of Prayer Gathering
On May 5, 2011, thousands will gather in Dallas, TX, in Mexico City, MX and at the Mexico-U.S.A. border to throw the last arrow into the ground and press through in prayer for breakthrough at the Mexico-U.S.A. border. Fathers and mothers of the prayer movement will be joining us that night as well as national and state prayer leaders from across Mexico and the United States. This prayer gathering will be done simultaneously with other National Day of Prayer gatherings in cities throughout the U.S.
We are believing that on this night, God will throw fire on our sacrifice and in the coming days, week, and months, we will see drug trafficking operations exposed and dissolved, prisoners of the drug war will be set free and the incidents of violence, kidnapping and extortion will dramatically decrease!
We need your help and participation during this critical time in the history of both Mexico and the United States. We invite you to consecrate April 15 through May 5 for 21 historic days of prayer and fasting for breakthrough in both the United States and Mexico, resulting in righteous trade, peace and security at our nation's southern border. As it was with The Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 may it be so once again on May 5, 2011. Let our nations make history together, restoring peace and prosperity within our borders.
