Awaken the Dawn




We have reserved the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 6-9, 2017. We are calling America to an unprecedented worship movement on the National Mall. When we gather around the invisible God, the impossible becomes possible.

We will gather in 50+ tents covering the National Mall. It will be a tent-city filled with worship, music, prayer, and the gospel.

Each of the 50 states will have a tent for day and night prayer and relational connection. There will be larger regional tents with full sound systems for day and night worship and music. Nothing like this has ever been done before in our nation’s capital. Washington, D.C. will be a resting place for the presence of God and a staging ground for missions.

On the final day–all day–we are extremely excited to partner with TheCall in a big stage venue on the National Mall! On this final day, we will worship, pray, preach the gospel with signs and wonders, and commission a generation to complete the Great Commission!


 Multiple leaders sensed that we were to gather on October 6-9, 2017. We later realized that these dates are during the Feast of Tabernacles when Israel gathered in tents in their nation’s capital, Jerusalem.

This same weekend 20 years ago, over a million men gathered for a full day prayer meeting called Promise Keepers “stand in the Gap”. We believe ATD is to be an answer to those men’s prayers- that a generation would return to the Mall simply as a love response to Jesus, in a Tabernacling expression. We want a whole weekend together this time!

In a time of unusual governmental shift in America, we are calling America to the National Mall in a procession to bring the “ark of God” to our nation’s capital. There is only one Man who is ultimately worthy. As we gather around Jesus, righteousness will be effected in our nation including our national government!

Join the procession.


Our goal is not merely a gathering, but a movement.

In 2018, our vision is to see tents for worship, unity, and prayer in every state capital and on university campuses nationwide, leading to a new Jesus movement around the nation.

We also will be giving practical steps for those who feel called to missions and leadership. Our 2017 gathering will be a “staging ground” for missions and evangelism.

Out of this Awaken the Dawn gathering, we will be launching a plan to stand with David’s Tent in Washington, D.C. so that prayer and worship goes unbroken in our nation’s capital all year.

Lord-willing, we will gather again in 2018 in Washington, D.C.!

The Great American Eclipse: A Prophetic Sign for Our Nation

– A Word by Kathi Pelton

On August 21st, 2017 a total eclipse of the sun will be seen across the United States of America. People are calling this the “Great American Eclipse”. Though the sky will go dark for only a few minutes as the sun, moon and earth align, people have been preparing for this months in advance.

It is no coincidence that August 21 is also the first day of the Jewish season of Teshuvah, a forty-day season of repentance and return to God leading up to the Day of Atonement.

Alignments and Unity

Numerous prophetic voices have been hearing about alignments, preparations, repentance and many turning back to the Lord. Often we will see events in the natural realm illustrate spiritual realities. I believe that this is one of those times.

As we entered 2017, the Spirit spoke to me and said that the first half of this year would prepare God’s people to align in unity with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit according to Jesus’ prayer in John 17:20 (17:20 in 2017), just as the sun, the moon and the earth will align. However, God’s alignment will not be momentary, but eternal. He also spoke to me that July would be a month of completion that would usher God’s people into resurrection, restoration and true repentance. I keep finding myself saying the words,

“Repentance is freedom from wrong alignments.”

When I began to hear about the “Great American Eclipse” I knew in my spirit that it was a prophetic sign in the sky of a spiritual manifestation on earth, specifically for America.

Momentary Darkness Turning to Light

The months since our presidential elections have been a momentary darkness that is aligning our nation, and God’s people, to move into unity, restoration and the resurrection of God’s original intent. The forty-day season of Teshuvah will be the culmination of alignments, preparation and repentance to enter into authority. Repentance produces humility, and authority is a product of godly humility.

A little more than a week after these forty days of repentance, an event will take place on the Washington D.C. Mall called “Awaken the Dawn- America’s Tent of Meeting” ( From October 6-9, fifty tents from all fifty states will be set up on the Washington Mall to pour forth prayer and worship 24/7 for three days straight. I believe that this will be a time of “divine reset” after the forty days of repentance.

Over a million people are expected to travel to our state of Oregon to view the eclipse; so may we see a million people gather on the DC Mall this October to see darkness turn to light in our nation’s capital!


“Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You.” Psalm 139:12

No Longer Status Quo

It is time to align with the light of our God, even in the midst of earthly darkness. Then darkness will not be dark to the people of God. They will be the light of Christ to a world in darkness that searches for light. This is a time to truly take the seasons of God seriously. The Holy Spirit is calling, asking us to “Come up higher” in order to discern the times and seasons. It is not “status quo” any longer; now is the time to see a nations turn back to God.

This is Not a Set Back, It’s a Set Up

arrow pull back3
Alane Haynes

A few months ago, I was in a hard place and was seeking the Lord with all my heart, and the Lord told me, “This is not a set back, it’s a set up” and revealed more about that truth. I have been hearing that there are many that need to hear this.

I had been in a place of discouragement, due to many occurrences of “problems” in my life over the previous months that had to be dealt with – financial, career, family, illness – all seeming to indicate attacks by the enemy leading to setback and in direct conflict with words of promise I had heard from God and had been standing on. It was a real battle. I had been hearing these words, “Maybe God didn’t really say all those things to me; maybe I imagined it; maybe I misheard or misinterpreted what I saw and heard.” Then I heard the Lord say, “This is not a setback, it’s a set up.”

He told me to go back to what He told me six weeks prior during a consecrated time of seeking; I needed to read it again! This is what He had told me during that time:

“This is a time of expansion of horizons. Many things will be changing as I make way for the new. Many things will be uprooted and eliminated that in the previous season brought you great enjoyment, but in this season, they would be a hindrance to your vision and perception. You must be ready, in the natural and in the spirit, to know that I am sovereign and that ‘this thing is from Me.’”

“Thus saith the LORD, ‘Ye shall not go up, nor fight against your brethren the children of Israel: return every man to his house; for this thing is from Me.’ They hearkened therefore to the word of the LORD, and returned to depart, according to the word of the LORD.” (1 Kings 12:24, KJV)

“Many events will surprise and even shock you as the shifting continues. I am moving hindrances out of the way for My work to be done. What was a blessing in the days before would keep you from My best in the days to come. You may experience feelings of loss and pain. Do not let attachments to transient, temporal blessings bring a hardening to your heart towards Me, or an offence causing you to stumble.

“I am the Lord. There is no other, and I am a jealous Lover. Know that I am good, always, and trust Me even when you don’t understand My ways.

“For there is coming a time in the days ahead when things may happen to fill you with dread. Turn your eyes to Me, look ahead. Eyes single, focused on Me, instead. It will be as I have said. I uproot and I tear down structures and mindsets of others’ renown. The day is coming and is today. Look again, seek and pray. Have I not said I will show you the way?”

I was hearing and seeing an arrow pulled back to go farther. I was reminded of a word by Chuck Pierce about arrows – that the Lord is pulling us back so that we can go farther, and hit the mark. What I heard that morning is that I (and many others) are in that place of tension when the archer is pulling back on the bow as it is being readied to catapult the arrow to its intended mark.

As I meditated on His words, I heard the Lord say, “The bow is pulled back so that the arrow can go forward with greater force. While pulled back, you will feel the tension, at times it will be intense. I am using this place of tension to cause you to seek Me and to examine your heart once again, as we enter this time of Purim, a time of purification. In order to “hit the mark” in the spirit realm, there must be a fullness of My Spirit to overpower and overcome the forces of darkness, to take down the enemy where he currently has the land. You are being readied, set to go forward in the power of My Spirit. You cannot allow evil thoughts of Me – doubting My purpose and plans, i.e. ‘Did God really say?’ during this time.”

“Therefore thus says the Lord [to Jeremiah]: If you return [and give up this mistaken tone of distrust and despair], then I will give you again a settled place of quiet and safety, and you will be My minister; and if you separate the precious from the vile [cleansing your own heart from unworthy and unwarranted suspicions concerning God’s faithfulness], you shall be My mouthpiece…” (Jeremiah 15:19, AMPC)

“You must enter with a Caleb spirit – fully believing I AM with you and I AM who I said I AM and I AM fully capable of performing all that I have promised.

“What seems a set back is actually a set up to position you and ready you to carry more of My presence, to take up residence in places the enemy has had precedence. Be alert, be ready, allow no hesitance. I AM and My ways reveal my greatness and excellence.”

For those in a place of discouragement, take courage! It is not a set back; it is a set up! You are being set up by the Lord and He is faithful to do what He has promised!
