Years ago on a saturday evening while praying with around fifty intercessors, the Lord spoke to my heart, “Pray for the Kingpins!” So, in simple obedience, we did.
The next morning, a man whose CB handle was "Kingpin" came to church, and during the meeting came forward and gave his heart to the Lord. When he did, seventeen of his family members came with him. The following week, twenty-three more people connected to him came to Christ. Since that time, I often pray for kingpins in regions where the Lord sends us.
In 2012, we had an assignment to pray in Chicago for fifty days. The very first night, Father led me to speak on kingpins. The next day, a precious sister shared with me that three days before we came she had a dream. In this dream four gang leaders in the Chicago area were sitting at a table, and the Lord spoke to her and said, “These are the kingpins; when the kingpins come out of darkness, everything changes!”
Since that time we have been tracking news headlines that mention the capture or removal of kingpins – the number is astounding!
In February 2014 while speaking at the Ascend gathering in Philadelphia, PA with our good friends Jamie and Jonathan Fitt, we found ourselves in the place of calling kingpins out of darkness. Because Father has had us “moving in the power of the anthem” we began to worship over kingpins in the nation (the worship was captured on the CD The Heavenly Anthem by Philadelphia Tabernacle of David, available for purchase below).
Jamie recently phoned me with an amazing testimony of a kingpin who came out of darkness during that timeframe.
I felt to encourage you in your towns, cities, regions, and territories to call kingpins out of darkness!
Father, through the Blood of Your Son, together we agree for all those who were gifted by you with leadership qualities from the womb. We release into their atmospheres the same amazing grace we have tasted. We release the power of the Blood of Your Son, the light of Holy Spirit, and the illumination of the eternal word! These three agree, and we add our agreement. Every kingpin whose gifts satan has been using to power his kingdom and enslave others, we bless you to awaken and return to original intent! We release the fear of the Lord in every bedroom, we call you out of darkness and into the light.
"The people who walked in darkness have seen a great Light; those who dwelt in the land of intense darkness and the shadow of death, upon them has the Light shined." – Isaiah 9:2 (AMP)
