This month, many gathered for The Florida Prophetic Summit where prophetic voices in Florida shared what they were hearing from the Lord with regard to Florida (and the body of Christ at large) in 2020. You can watch some of the release here.
Here's what I'm seeing for Florida:
- Backlash against the backbone. I heard the Lord say, "backlash against the backbone." Immediately, I recalled Chuck Pierce's prophecy from earlier in 2019. Specifically, he prophesied Florida is the backbone of the nation.
In an election year (2020), there will be backlash against the backbone—backlash against Florida. I saw serious terror plots planned against the Forerunner State to break its back and demoralize its intercessors. The kingdom of darkness is plotting and planning against the Sunshine State. We have to pray a hedge of protection around the state and stay on high alert.
- House of prayer paradigm shift. God has set the stage for revival and the enemy is doing everything he can to pacify the prayer warriors so we don't break all the way through. Florida has one of the highest ratios of houses of prayer per capita yet we have yet to see revival.
It will be necessary for houses of prayer to undergo a paradigm shift, no longer soaking and worshipping for personal intimacy only—but also warring and fighting, standing in the gap and repairing the breaches to keep the enemy at bay. While I love the Kansas City model of harp and bowl, we'll need to do war and fight in this next season.
- Repairing unity breaches among churches. There are unity breaches among churches in Florida in particular that must be healed, as Central and South Florida is a prime target for the enemy's terror. Region by region, praying churches, houses of prayer and prayer ministries must set aside their differences and gather to pray—and not just gather to pray but equip young intercessors to pray. I heard the Lord say:
"I am uniting different streams of intercessors to release My power, My fire, My glory and an awakening among you. This awakening must first happen among the prayer warriors, the watchmen on the wall, the travailing saints and the other streams of intercessors before we will see it manifest widely in the body.
"I need My intercessors to get on the same page, not always with the minute details of theology but with the big picture in My heart to see transforming revival in the Forerunner State. I am calling you to model true unity in intercession. I am calling you to walk in love despite your differences. I am calling you to rise up and pray together to see My will come to pass in Florida as it is in heaven.
"I am calling you to be part of a great army of intercessors that understands the power of blessing and refuses to curse. I am calling you to step into My kingdom order in prayer, to submit your revelations one to another with an open spirit, to stand together in the midst of the warfare that resists You as You seek My strategies.
"I am calling you to network together, to band together, to run together and to experience Me together. I am creating intimacy among the intercessors, interpersonal relationships where your hearts are knit together in love.
"There will no longer be competition and jealousy and power struggles among you when you lay your heart bare before Me and commit to My greater cause. Is there not a cause? Keep the cause in mind and decide even now that My plans and purposes are greater than cultural, ethnic, racial and denominational lines. Stand in unity and you will see the blessing of prayer answers."
