The 400th Anniversary of the signing of the Mayflower Compact could not have come at a better time. What is the Next Move? It is what God will do next as we renew the covenant and continue to respond to His great stirring of intercession that we have experienced for the last 4 years.
IFA has joined with a group of prayer leaders to gather at Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 to celebrate and pray into the heritage of the Pilgrims’ prayers and deep commitment to the Lord.
This anniversary is especially meaningful for the ministry of IFA. At the 350th anniversary of the signing of the Pilgrim’s Mayflower Compact in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Derek Prince delivered a series of teachings on the topic of liberty. As he studied the Pilgrim’s teaching, he realized how strongly his heart resonated with them. Derek’s investigations during this time resulted in his book Shaping History Through Prayer and Fasting. Upon the release of the book, Derek’s schedule brought him to a group in Miami, Florida in November of 1973. There he challenged them to form a ministry praying for the nation, and IFA was born.
William Bradford wrote, “[They labored] to have the right worship of God and discipline of Christ established in the church, according to the simplicity of the gospel, without the mixture of men’s inventions . . .” (Of Plymouth Plantation, 6)
Derek Prince’s ministry and teaching concerning the need for New Testament restoration was part of the launch of the modern prayer movement during the early 1970’s. This modern movement included many prayer ministries in addition to IFA. As we celebrate the 400th anniversary, what is next?
You can be part of this special commemoration and part of pressing into the Lord to be part of what the next great movement of God in America will be.
