I Prayed have prayed
Father, we lift up this conference before You. Bless all those in attendance, Lord, and use it to glorify Yourself.

Dave and Kris Kubal invite you to join them at a special conference in Texas.  

Christians around America are waking up. We cannot sit on the sidelines any longer.

God is breaking down walls between denominations, races, and generations — and uniting us around a mission of prayer and action for the nation we love.

Connect with others in your state in prayer.


America needs us, the Body of Christ, to be fully awake and engaged.

Join us at the Wake UP! Conference — Sept. 23–24 in Dallas–Fort Worth. We have a special promo code for IFA readers. Just put in IFA2022 for $15 off each ticket.

Come HEAR some of the top CHRISTIAN VOICES in America as they inspire and educate us on prayer, voting, and engagement for the well-being of our nation. This national conference is designed just for you — the awakening church.

Watch the 1-minute promo video here.

We are excited to be hosted by Church in the City and Pastor Ryan Hankins, in Rowlett, Texas, for an amazing Friday evening and all-day Saturday event.

Established through our discipleship ministry, Christians Engaged, this conference is a unique experience where ministry leaders and government officials who love Jesus can come together across denominational lines.

Not only are we going to hear from the amazing speakers listed below, who have important messages for America right now, we are also going to worship and to pray together as one Church for our nation. You don’t want to miss this!

Hello and thank you for this important conference. Since so many believers will not be there in person, is the conference or parts of it going to be available anywhere else? Are there churches or other venues hosting a viewing in real time or later? Will it be available on Facebook or other social media anytime? Thank you, Kay Guzman

And Lord, forgive us, Your church, past and present, for times we have spoken truth but without love, for times we have not spoken truth even but our own ‘agenda’. I do ask Your protection Jesus over this conference, the hearts and mouths of the presenters especially, to only speak Your message, bind the enemy Jesus, and fully loose Your Holy Spirit in us all, the speakers and hearers, to receive Your message as You desire and to have the wisdom for each of us to obey, for Your name Jesus, Your pleasure too!
And do give us boldness and courage when things get hard or we have to wait to see the good You are bringing about , we trust You Lord God! The only true, Most High, Almighty Jehovah Jesus, Messiah!

Thank You and praise You Jesus! For using the evil, crazy days of the past decade or so to wake us, your children, up. Lord I ask You to help us rise up! After reading this article and seeing the video, I do hear You saying ‘time to rise up!’
Poppa God, help us be found faithful during coming days, repentant, not compromising with evil but being lambs who roar, because You live!
Lord, make a way for anyone who wants to participate, to be able to, even if we can’t get to Texas, unite our hearts and minds Lord, for Your Spirit to move again! In an earth changing way!

If the current situation is what it takes to unite Christians (or indeed, all those who believe in God and the same values) then we can give thanks for the situation because it has done what for so long has been needed but not accomplished. Lord, unite those who love YOU.

The battle ahead will destroy the very fabric of civilization, God has told me to be prepared for battle. put on your armor and fight like never before. We are now in the book of Revelation chapter 3. For years I have warned about this day and nobody has paid any attention.
Be prepared to die for your faith,- you will be either shot, stabbed, poisoned, rot in prison or even be boiled and crucified. This will indeed happen, like the $300 trillion in national debt will be possible. Every word I spoke about for the pat 30 or 40 years is now a reality. So are you going to ignore the signs of the times as well. God said to me that he will destroy the nations that do not put Him first n their lives. It is Jesus first in the morning, through the day into the night – connection to the vine that gets you into His kingdom.
Get your act together church, for I have been chosen to bring judgment o the nations as one of the two witnesses of Revelation 11 before I was a fetus in my mom’s womb. He called me Elijah for a reason., judgment will come on those whose heart is not connected to the vine.

I am praying for this conference, for all who attend, and for each of the speakers who will be part of it. Holy Spirit be the leader of this conference; may the speakers speak only the words You have given them; empower those who attend with Your ears and heart to receive the messages You have entended them to hear. Thank you, Jesus and your Spirit for praying the perfect prayers for this conference to our Father.

Acts 2:1-4, 33-36 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like a mighty rushing wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw tongues like flames of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them….Exalted, then, to the right hand of God, He has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. For David did not ascend into heaven, but he himself says:
‘The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit at My right hand
until I make Your enemies
a footstool for Your feet.” ’
Therefore let all Israel know with certainty that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ!”

Dear Lord, while reading about this conference, You put the first Pentecost on my heart. Holy Spirit, I pray You will come and do Your work during this conference. I am asking for an awakening that extends even to us who are praying for this event. May the Spirit of the Living God fall upon that place. May Your coming be audible, may IT be visual, may IT be all consuming for the speakers, for those in attendance, for those serving and hosting and for us praying for You to be glorified. May Your filling enable them and us to do whatever You desire for our lives. Change us Lord. I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ the Exalted One. Amen

This is Wonderful! There are so many incredible and major events scheduled that weekend, that it’s no coincidence, and a number of those events are in the State of Texas! For those of us that cannot attend in person, Live-streaming is an incredible gift! May we all come together no matter where we are, As One, to Worship Our Holy God and hear what the Holy Spirit is saying! IHOP-Kansas City (Mike Bickle), Glory of Zion-Texas (Chuck Pierce), Lois Vogel- Sharp- Texas, The Herzogs’ Harvest is Now- Arizona and others that you can look at online and register for livestream!
For such a time as this! With Love to the entire family of God!
In Yeshua’s Name,

Father God,
Thank You for bringing together many different parts of the Body of Christ to learn how to advance Your Kingdom in this nation. I ask for Your blessings and peace over this 2022 Wake Up! Conference.
May the unity and brotherly love be a powerful testimony of Your glory. I ask for Your supernatural protection and provision to cover every aspect. Bring everyone You want to be there and fully equip them to be successful in the work You want them to accomplish.
May this prayer be fulfilled in the name of Jesus.
