Statewide Kickoff on Rosh Hashanah

Oct 2nd
Messiah’s House (Harvest Time) in Greenwich

Jew and Gentile together is KEY

This will be our state-wide kick-off of 10 Days and even more so a celebration and honoring of the Jewish people. Why all the way in Greenwich? That is where our friends and partners in the Kingdom: Messiah’s House are based (Fairfield County has the largest Jewish population in the state). Messiah’s house is our first Messianic expression to host a night of 10 Days in CT. Let’s rally around them and make the drive as a demonstration of our love and support for Messianic believers and leaders! A “trumpeting” in of what the Lord is doing in ONE NEW MAN Jew and Gentile together this Rosh Hashanah in Connecticut! This will also be a great opportunity to invite Jewish unbelievers to hear the gospel and experience the joy of John 17 unity and family.

Statewide Wrap on Yom Kippur

Oct 11th
Holy Land in Waterbury


Holy Land was our opener last year and it did not disappoint! If you never been “up the mountain”, prayed at the cross, seen the little Jerusalem, come out and join us this year! Our theme this year will be repentance prayer and fasting for the state of Connecticut, seeing that its Yom Kippur – the day of our Lord’s atonement. Come join us for this mountain top experience!

New England Wrap on Yom Kippur

Oct 12th
D.L. Moody Campus in Northfield, MA

Moody Auditorium in Northfield MA

Moody Auditorium

This is a new addition to 10 Days this year! Wow, the 6 states of New England coming together in one assembly to lift up our voice collective and honor the Lord! We have received permission to use the historic D.L. Moody campus in Northfield, MA. Our main event will be in the Moody Auditorium, which was built in 1894, seats 2200 and is an awesome place with the presence of the Lord already hovering there!

Historically, the Student Volunteer Movement started during the Northfield Conferences in 1886.  Northfield was a major gathering place for camp meetings and renewal gatherings in the late 1800’s.  It’s one of the hidden gems of our rich spiritual heritage here in New England, one that’s waiting to be revived.

Moody Roundtop  overlooking the CT River

The event will be designed to be earlier in the day such that those travelling greater distances will be able to get home at a reasonable time (1 hour 15 minutes from Hartford). So, take the day for a tour of the campus, hang out with your fellow New England Alliance friends, and/or just come for the late afternoon / early evening assembly!

There is also a New England Alliance unity meeting planned for August 18th on the campus in Hibbard Hall from 10-3pm. If you are a New England ministry leader or pastor and you would like to check out the campus or fellowship with fellow members the NE body of Christ, email 10daysofprayer@gmail.com to RSVP. This will also serve as a prep meeting for the October 12th assembly.

Interior of the Moody Auditorium

The 10 Days resources are located at Impact CT 10 Days Materials Page. This includes videos, invite a friend tools, hosting guidelines, etc. Continue to check back, as resources will continue to be added as we approach October. Also, in September, we will have a 10 Days leaders lunch at Wellspring to prepare for events in October. Check the calendar here and stay tuned!

Cornelius QuekCornelius Quek

Has it ever occurred to you that Christianity is the only faith or religion that promises provision from the heart of a Father?

I was brought up in a Buddhist family and my parents would often take me to the temples to offer incense and sacrifice to appease the gods, in the hope that my “good works” would merit the gods’ provision and protection. There was no relationship but a whole lot of fear. No other religion has boasted of a Father to Son/Daughter relationship other than Christianity.

Relationship is key to understanding and receiving provision from our Father in Heaven. Our God is “Lord, Master, Deliverer” and so much more. But I believe that as we begin to experience greater revelation of Him as Father, we will begin to see radical provision in our lives that just doesn’t make sense. I am talking about supernatural, miraculous, mind-blowing, unexplainable “out of the blue, exceeding your wildest imagination” kinds of provision.

Let me share with a couple of stories to build your faith in this season.

“I Am Your Source”

Years ago when I was a freshman in college, I remembered one day when I needed $1.50 for laundry. I had only $0.75 to my name. I asked the Father to release His provision that day. If He can feed Elijah by having the ravens bring bread and meat to him morning and evening, surely He can let me have clean clothes. That evening, a homeless guy came up to me and said, “Here’s a dollar note for you.”

I was stunned for words. He walked up to me a second time and said, “Now I really don’t know why I am doing this…” and proceeded to dig out four quarters from his jean pocket and said, “But here’s another dollar for you.”

I said to him, “You don’t have to do this.”

“You don’t understand; I have to…” was his reply. The Lord spoke to me that night matter-of-factly:

Son, I am your good, good Father and I am your Source. If I decide to hang money on the tree and have you pluck it down, so be it. Don’t you dare set your eyes on people or things for your provision

I remember another time in college when I needed close to $11,000 to pay for my upcoming semester at Oral Roberts University. I was at my wits end and I didn’t have the money. Being an international student, I would have to return to Singapore if I didn’t manage to pay for the semester. I remember praying that night, “Lord, You’ve called me to ORU. I trust You to provide.”

As soon as I had finished praying, I felt the Holy Spirit say, “Call Gregory.”

Honest to myself, I thought, “Lord, surely not Gregory. He is a teacher; he doesn’t have the money.”

I have to chuckle whenever I think about that because every time I’ve shouted “Impossibility,” all of Heaven echoed and replied, “Wait, just you wait and see.”

I picked up the phone and dialed the numbers, “Greg, hey listen…here’s what’s going on…” I began to explain to him my situation and need.

Gregory goes, “OK, let me see what I can do.”

We put down the phone and the Holy Spirit drops a name to Gregory and told him to call T.L., a friend he had met while they were in the military, whom he hasn’t met or talked to in seven years. He proceeded to call T.L. and T.L. responded, “Get Cornelius to email me and we’ll go from there.”

I remember sitting in front of my laptop wondering where and how do I even begin to write this email. I thought to myself, “Lord, he doesn’t know me from Adam. I’ve never met him a day in my life. Surely he’s not going to give me $11,000.”

With the help and inspiration from the Holy Spirit, I finished and sent that email that night. The next day, I received a reply from T.L., “Cornelius, I talked to my wife about it and we will pay for your semester.”

Needless to say, I was stunned for words. Later, I managed to call T.L. on the phone and I just had to ask, “Tell me, how do you just decide to give a stranger $11,000, with no strings attached?”

He replied, “Cornelius, right before you emailed me, my wife and I were praying and asking the Lord which ministry He would like us to sow our money into, and when we heard from you, we knew instinctively we were to give to you.”

Our Good Father and His Radical Provision

I believe there’s always grace for God to give and grace for us to receive. God’s economy does not function like Wall Street. He never fluctuates. He is always generous because He is always good. He cannot be anything but good to His children. I am so thankful His giving and generosity is not dependent on my merit, my works, or how good I am, but purely on how good and benevolent our Father is.

We have to quit striving to earn His favor. He taught us to pray, “Our Father in Heaven…give us this day our daily bread.” That is an invitation to relationship and covenant provision.

I am praying and agreeing that in this season, you will begin to experience radical provision that just does not make sense. The only explanation is that He is just that good.

Declare with me:

• Father, You are so good. Show me Your goodness and glory!

• I am Your son/daughter, and You are my Father. Release Your covenant provision in my life!

• Father, I ask You for radical provision that doesn’t make sense!

• Father, You promise to supply all my needs according to Your riches in glory. So be it Lord!

• Father, I refuse to partner with fear, stress, or lack. Instead I partner with faith and with Heaven to see Your will being accomplished in my life!

• Father, my food is to do Your will. Give me this day my daily bread!

• I give You praise and glory, and I thank You in advance for what You are about to do! Amen!

Can’t wait to hear testimonies!

For His Praise & Glory,

This is something the Lord has been showing me over the past couple of years. I am in no way an expert on the subject of leadership; if anything, I have much to learn! This word is preaching to me as much as it preaches to you. June is a key month of being positioned for major acceleration, may we be found faithful in obeying!

The New Generals and Servant Leaders

My beloved ones, I am raising up a new breed of leaders across the face of the earth.

You’ve heard that the days of Superstar ministers are over, but I am taking it one step further. Indeed, this is the time for the nameless, faceless army of God to arise — and I am raising Generals in this army that look completely opposite from what the world think great leaders look like. I am raising up an army of servant leaders. People who serve in authenticity, brokenness, and humility.

The generals in My army will not be perfect, but they will have a childlike heart to hear Me and obey My voice even in weakness. They are marked by humility, vulnerability, and a broken offered-up life that will become a guiding post for all who look upon them. They will not serve out of their own strength or wisdom, but by walking in total dependence on My Holy Spirit.

I am looking across the earth for those whose hearts will completely belong to Me.

I am preparing those with hearts to serve. They will lead My people with the heart of a servant, and serve them with the heart of a king.

Not for glory, not for ambition, not even for spiritual conquests. No, I am searching for those who, like Jacob, would wrestle for an encounter that would leave them so dependent on Me. Like Jacob, they will be unable to walk without leaning on Me. And like Jacob, they will experience the heart-stopping goodness of God in their lives with grace to impart much to the next generation.

Even now, many of them are growing strong. But the world doesn’t know them yet. It has been a quiet work; deep heart work.

Forged in Deep Fires

For such generals are as porcelain — they appear delicate/weak to the human eye, they have a transparency about them, but they possess a strength plus tenacity that belies their appearance. This is because they’ve been forged in the deep fires and gone through the most intense flames. And they’ve emerged tested and proven, and proven faithful.

Many on the earth and in My church are hungry for My new breed of generals to lead them in the battle. Many need these generals to lead them into battle. And I am about to launch them very, very soon.

Keep watch and be ready. The time of suddenlies has come and is still coming in greater measure.

My new breed of servant leaders understand hiddenness & have chosen voluntary weakness so they’re sustained only by My grace. Because of this, they’re not afraid to be honest about their journey – even when it’s less than perfect – because they know that My people don’t need another lofty unattainable standard of spirituality, but rather they need forerunners who’ve gone before them, fallen down a few times, and persisted in running the race. That is what will encourage and inspire My people that they can do it too.

People like David the man after My own heart, Moses, Abraham, even My prophet Samuel. They all made mistakes, and I purposefully chose not to conceal those mistakes in My everlasting word. I wanted My children to have living stories, not blind guides, to lead them on the way. This is the very reason I sent My Son, so that mankind could learn from a Man what it means to be fully man as I designed in the Garden.

I am calling out for such men and women to arise in this generation.

Be strong and take courage, My generals-in-training. The heat has been painful and you’ve thought many times that you couldn’t bear any more. I am so proud of you for enduring. I see your heart of obedience to Me even in weakness, and I am moved by it. I keep account of every quiet sacrifice, every time you’ve chosen My kingdom over your comfort. I delight in you and I want you to know: You are storing up for yourselves everlasting treasures in heaven that nothing & no one can every take away from you.

Take heart, My children. Position yourselves. Let My Spirit prepare your heart, even when that means tearing down & rebuilding.

I am releasing My new breed of generals across the earth today, and I will not stop working until that day comes.

Jesus replied: ‘Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by Himself; He can do only what He sees His Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. For the Father loves the Son and shows Him all He does. Yes, and He will show Him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed.’ John 5:19-20

[Prophetic word] “I am going to REDEFINE the flow of supply lines! I will form NEW rivers and cause what has been to INTERSECT so a new flow will begin!” Watch this important summary from Sunday, May 15:


“What woke me up at four o’clock this morning was a dream I had. And in the dream I was caught up above three nations: China, Europe and America.

Now caught up is rapt – rapture. That just means you’re being filled with the Spirit and you’re being brought up to a place where you can see better. And in the midst of that, God showed me the rivers of each one of those lands. And I had to say what each river – the name of each river. And especially in America – and I want to say this to us as we move forward – what he would show me was the intersection of rivers. And I would have to know the name of the rivers that were intersecting because at that place He redefined how the earth and the source of trade would go forth after that.

And so, I felt when I woke up the Lord was saying to these three continents: I am going to redefine the flow of the supply lines of these three nations beginning now. And I say to you, I will form new rivers. And I will cause what has been to intersect, so a new flow will begin. I say to you in the Spirit, I am going to intersect moves from the past season so that a new move begins. So this will be a defining week for you, watch how the waters flow throughout the earth. For this will be a defining week of redefining the way that the flow of My Spirit will go and the definition of supply will come…

“I could see the flow, the rhythm of the water, what it was doing, the changes that were to come. Now hear what is being said today: Big changes ahead in the movement of the earth. Get ready and just stay moving in the rhythm of what is going on in the earth realm.”

In addition to the vitally important dream and prophetic words from yesterday, Lane McShannon also had an important dream which is summarized here:

“I had a dream Sunday morning – I was trying to pitch a tent with some other people and the ground was wet. In one place there was muddy water. The ground was uneven and we were looking for a place where the ground was solid and we would be safe and not be swept away by the flooding water or high water. Then I woke up.”

On Saturday morning I shared what the Lord is saying to us for this season.  We have now crossed over into a time that will determine our future.  Starting April 25, through October 20, it will be the most tumultuous, confusing time this nation has known in over 160 or 170 years.  I want you to know how you are connected in the Body of Christ, and that the Body of Christ will not be the same. This is a time that America determines its future.  But also understand that this is a time that the Kingdom of God and those leading it move into their next identity.

This is probably our most key intercessory time. We have entered into a time of the Tabernacle of David being exemplified and emerging in the earth. This will affect all religious cultures across the earth. We decree that we are willing to be that Judah expression that creates the prototype for the future. In Black America and the African nations, the expression of God will unseat a wrong movement that will also vie for authority in days ahead. The Asian church will rise up and create a prototype that we’ve never seen.  Also, we are going to see Israel come into its greatest conflict since 1967.  Know that we have entered a new season! Let’s allow Judah to arise. Apostolic centers like the Global Spheres Center must now create a new prototype in the earth.

Blessings,
Chuck D. Pierce
