JUNE UPDATE ~ Texas and Arizona

I finished my prayer walking in Texas by visiting the following border cities: McAllen, Laredo, Eagle Pass, Del Rio, and El Paso. Many days and hours were given to prayer, praise and worship in these cities. Because these cities were near the border, my heart was more in tune to God’s heart for our border situation and I was led to pray in very specific ways. I actually prayer walked across the bridge in El Paso into the Mexico. Only a few people were walking into Mexico, but many people and vehicles were coming back into the US at the border crossing. Since most of my prayers are in the Spirit, I don’t always know what I am praying for, but I usually have a strong sense in my heart of what is on God’s heart when I’m in a specific area. I finished this leg of the walk with 4 days in Tucson, and 2 days in Phoenix, Arizona.

I sensed the following many times in my prayer times-the Lord is powerful, merciful, pure and holy. Fear, fire, faith, family and friends of God. This walk was so enjoyable that even the heat seemed to energize me. The highest temperature reading while in Arizona was 114 degrees!

Jesus, Father God and Holy Spirit were always and, in all ways, so real to me that I knew by God’s grace that God himself was praying through me His plan, purpose and heart for that region.

This walk was filled with expectations for godly connection in every city I went to. I don’t know how, but in every place I visited, I was blessed with either a commissioning or a sending prayer for the city or me personally. This month I stopped more often to talk with the homeless people and even was led to ask them direct questions about their lives. Some were greatly touched by God’s love through me. Praise our Lord!

Some churches I attended are so powerful and the praise and worship plus the anointed preaching was awesome. It is amazing to me how pastors, leaders and local believers receive me and my ministry so readily.

Again, my commission is to continue to pray that the heavens would remain open and the final harvest would be great. Our nations needs a strong move of God and it needs you and me and the remnant to seek and obey the Lord of the harvest like never before. Remember, it is God working through you and I so yield to His mercy and grace and bring Him much joy and pleasure as you love, worship, pray and obey Him. He is worthy! Amen!

Southern Cities Prayer Walk Austin, San Antonio, and Corpus Christi, Texas

Greetings from rainy, wet Texas! Today was the first full day of sunshine since I arrived on May 1. I am currently staying on the beach in Corpus Christi and the area is coming alive this weekend.
I spent 3 days in Austin, followed by 3 days in San Antonio, and now 3 days in Corpus Christi. I have made some great connections in each one of these cities and found great favor.
My last stop of this leg will be in Mcallen at the US/Mexican border for the final 3 days. He will give a full report and update on the State of Texas when he arrives home on May 15.
A special thank you for going out to everyone who has supported us through prayer and finances to make this trip possible. We thank God for your obedience! Look for a newsletter and prophetic word of encouragement coming soon!

SCPW Fort Worth/Dallas update May 1-4

Calvin left Baltimore May 1 for Dallas, and after a challenging flight filled with lightning, rain, hail and plain old bad weather, he finally landed late on Wednesday evening. He once again stayed with friends of ours in Fort Worth, and Thursday he and Chad walked part of the city. They prayed for a stronger connection between Dallas and Philadelphia. They were able to connect with a fellow believer in Philadelphia and they prayed together.

Friday, they drove to Dallas, where they experienced great favor. They walked into the city and covered the downtown area. Again, they reached out by phone to Philadelphia and prayed for open heavens and outpouring.

Calvin and Chad experienced much agreement in prayer during their day of prayer walking. That evening they attended Living Christianity University, led by Todd White. Todd, a gift to the Body of Christ, shared his testimony and encouraged them to share the gospel in practical ways and also with signs and wonders following. At the school students are trained and equipped and they hold a weekly Friday night service that is open to the public,

Calvin feels the state of Texas has is making a definite national impact and it’s easy to find fellow believers there who are hungry for the Lord.

Saturday, he drove to Austin, Texas, where he be will be prayer walking until Tuesday morning.

Thanks for your continuing prayers and support! You are helping make this trip possible. Watch for a newsletter update coming out this month!

New Orleans Update By David Suh

I had the privilege to walk and pray with Calvin on April 5. We know each other from In the Light Philadelphia and we just happened to be in New Orleans at the same time. We walked around the French Quarter and noticed many stores selling voodoo paraphernalia. We were told by a “Christian” Uber driver that the majority of people who grew up in New Orleans practice voodoo to some degree! As we were walking near a voodoo store we saw teenagers pouring into the place by the dozens. We decided to pray near the entrance and after that, the teens walked by rather than into the store.
Sadly, I discovered that New Orleans was the first city in our country to bring slaves from Africa. In 1718 it began the horrible practice of slavery as a colony of France, then later under the Spanish and later under American rule. I prayed in identification repentance for our nation’s past sins. Interestingly, this is the only major city that sells alcohol 24 hours a day. The foundation of this city was based on profiting from evil. While praying for the city, God showed me that unlike Jesus who was upset about people profiting from His Father in the temple, the devil wants people to profit off of evil through the spirit of fear and greed. Every other faith other than true faith in Christ, especially those that involve witchcraft, uses fear to keep people in bondage.
When we came to the Mississippi River, I realized the river flows from the north to the south and divides our country, east to west. I placed my hands into the water connecting the east coast to the west coast. I believe God is saying there needs to be free-flowing Holy Spirit connection between the east and the west.

Southern Cities Prayer Walk April 7-14 Baton Rouge, Houston and Dallas

Calvin fellowshipped with Bethany Church in Baton Rouge and presented them with the Louisiana Shepherd’s staff. He met some intercessors who also prayer walk, and they had a wonderful time of fellowship.
Monday, April 8, he drove to Opelousas and met an old friend, whom he had not seen in 43 years. After a short stay in Lake Charles, he headed to Houston, TX. He began to walk the city, and within 2 hours he found himself in a worship service at Father’s House- also called Houston Revival Center. He prayer walked the city 2 days and was there the same day our President was there!
Friday, April 12 he drove to the Dallas/Fort Worth area, maneuvering the 10 lane highways. He stayed with some dear friends in Fort Worth and enjoyed his time with their growing family. He prayer walked the city over the weekend, and after his flight was canceled on Sunday, he flew home Monday, April 15.
Walking in some of these large cities was daunting, but in every city, God gave me divine connections with other believers which were a huge encouragement for them as well as myself.
He had brought along an Arkansas shepherd’s staff not knowing how it would get to this state since he had no plans to prayer walk there. Since a friend who works with Kenneth Copeland Ministries, the staff was released to them to keep in their prayer cabin in Arkansas. A Texas shepherd’s staff was released to their executive offices in Fort Worth.
In Montgomery, AL and Baton Rouge, LA there were city-wide gatherings where hundreds of believers gathered to pray and worship and sought the Lord for their region.
Thank you for your personal interest and support as we continue this cross-country journey. Your love means so much. We would love to hear from you!
