For each of the nine days of our Mayday! Mayday! Distress Call for Prayer, I will provide a prayer that will help us stay focused so that we can pray with one accord. I will also share each day a video segment from the Joel 1 and Joel 2 messages that I gave at The Prophecy Seminar at The Cove in March of this year.
Today, in preparation for Mayday! Mayday! I wanted to share a small portion of Joel Rosenberg’s concluding message at that same Prophecy seminar. The morning after he and I had taught through the book of Joel, he gave a stirring message from Ezekiel 33 that emphasized the weight of responsibility we bear to respond to the Truth as it matches up with the times in which we live.

“For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now…Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He saved them from their distress.” Matthew 24:21 Psalm 107:19
This past Spring, Joel Rosenberg and I taught through the book of Joel as we led a prophecy seminar at The Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove. It was my privilege to give the first two messages that covered Joel 1:1 through Joel 2:17. The impact on me was profound. Both times, when I stepped off of the platform, I knew God had spoken. The messages almost made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. Why? Because God was clearly warning that His judgment is coming on America and on our world, and it’s going to be ugly. I knew it then, and I know it now.
I believe Jesus is soon to return to take all of His followers to Heaven with Him in what is referred to as The Rapture. While this will be deliverance for His people, can you imagine the impact on our nation, let alone the world, when suddenly every single authentic Christian disappears?
Institutions will collapse. Banks will close. The Stock Market will plunge. Planes will fall out of the sky. Cars will crash on the road. Government in America at every level will disintegrate. Families will be torn apart. In the unprecedented turmoil, our nation will be vulnerable for our enemies to seize the moment and attack us. There will be mass chaos, confusion, fear, grief, despair, anger, threats, danger… judgment.
But just as God allowed the Israelites, His people, to go through three of the ten plagues He sent in judgment on Pharaoh and Egypt in Exodus 6-8, God may allow His people today to go through a time of distress and trouble before The Rapture takes place. I believe we are in that time now. I believe it’s time to not just pray. It’s time to cry out to God on behalf of our nation and our world.
MAYDAY! MAYDAY! is an international distress call that signals a life-threatening emergency. And it’s the call to cry out that I am issuing May 15-May 23. These are the nine days between the Day of the Ascension of Jesus and the Day of Pentecost that have Biblically and traditionally been days of prayer and fasting for an outpouring of God’s Spirit.
The purpose of MAYDAY! MAYDAY! is …
* To claim God our Father’s promise of an outpouring of His Spirit in these days following three blood moons and a total solar eclipse: …I will pour out my Spirit in those days …The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. Joel 2:29, 31
* To implore God the Holy Spirit to compel the church to repent of sin and our nation to return to faith in the living God, that times of refreshing may come… Acts 3:19
* To entreat God our Savior for an abundant harvest of souls for His Kingdom in the remaining days. Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? ¹ I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. John 4:35
* To delay or soften God’s judgment that is coming on America and on our world. Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing. Joel 2:13-14
For those who sign up, I will provide a prayer I have written personally for each of the 9 days, as well as a brief video message, so that we pray with one accord. Before it’s too late and judgment falls on our nation.
¹One month after MAYDAY! MAYDAY! the Supreme Court will make a landmark decision on marriage. And four months after MAYDAY! MAYDAY! Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish Feast of Trumpets, will take place on September 13-15. Soon after Rosh Hashanah, the fourth blood moon will occur on September 28. I believe God is signaling us to get our attention. The time is critical, and the time is now… to pray!

Jesus said, Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life. John 4:13-14
This Baltimore boy is a beautiful example that we, as God’s children, need to follow.
In a world filled with anger, violence, chaos, and confusion, give someone The Living Water. In a world of death, give Life. In a world of darkness, give Light. In a world of despair, give Hope. In a world of lies, give Truth.
Give them Jesus. Today.

…Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you… Matthew 5:44
Like you, I was sickened, grieved, outraged, and angered almost beyond reason when once again I saw Islamic militants marching orange-clad men along the seashore in Libya. Instead of Egyptians, this time they were Ethiopians. And they were all beheaded because they were Christians.

And God said…whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you… Genesis 9:12, 14-15
God gave the rainbow originally as a sign of His everlasting love and commitment to Noah after judgement had fallen on the world. Following the horrendous storms during this past week that included 90 mph winds, tornadoes, and ping-pong-ball sized hail, there were rainbows everywhere! Including one quadruple rainbow!
