2/14/09 Beginning of 21 days of prayer/fasting
Tammy Dao: I kept sensing in my spirit to declare a 21 day prayer/fast. As we do it, God will release His mighty angels to break off the strongholds over Long Beach. We would also be able to receive breakthrough for our lives as well. We also focused on praying for the breakthrough for the 24/7 prayer house for Long Beach.
Sarah Yoon: (rephrased from memory) I saw big, mighty angels over CSULB that are waiting to be released by your voices of prayer. They’re waiting for you to release them and tell them what you want them to do. As Tiffa kept getting the vision for the Love Tent, the school administration chose the date to allow us to do the Love Tent on the 26th and 27th of February, which would cause the 21 days of prayer/fasting to end with the Love Tent (40 hours non-stop prayer, worship, fasting).
Tammy Dao: I had a vision of a newspaper and on the front-line was “24/7 Prayer House in Signal Hill” on the 27th at around 10:30 pm. Afterward, I saw in another vision, angels being released.
Harold Huang: Right afterward, I began singing “release the angels Lord” even though Tammy had not yet shared her vision with us yet.
Tammy began sending emails about praying for a house of prayer in Signal Hill.
Katzy Serrano: (Facebook message between Katzy and Tammy in response to the prayer house in Signal Hill) The idea didn’t come from a dream or vision per se but while a group of others started to pray on top of Signal Hill for Long Beach, an idea came to me… I saw every block in the city being covered by prayer. Like people would go out 2 by 2 and just prayer walk every sidewalk and cover the households, businesses, the families, and etc. in prayer. Then an idea came up. Mobilize the ALL local-born-again bible believing churches together and have them adopt a section around the area of their location and send people out to prayer walk. Then after covering the whole city in prayer, we can all meet up in some huge venue somewhere in Long Beach and close the day with some corporate intercession, worship, and praise!!!
Tammy Dao: (facebook reply) Hey Katzy, I have the same vision to have the whole city prayed over as well and God has been stirring in my heart and the hearts of the prayer team here at CSULB for a 24/7 prayer house. Your idea with bringing all the churches together and everything is something I felt God has spoken to me. I believe God has been doing this because about 2.5 years ago, I prayed for a sign that God would do it, that within 2 weeks it would flood a part of the city of Long Beach. The last day, it flooded a part of Long Beach. I would like to meet up with you soon and talk to you about this. I feel God wants to raise a 24/7 prayer house in Signal Hill and that was where our major prayer times were as well 3 years ago. It’s interesting that you’re praying there. We’re going to be doing 3 days of prayer and fasting on the 20th-22nd of March on just water. If we do this I believe we are going to get breakthrough for the prayer house.
Katzy Serrano: (facebook reply) So we chose Signal Hill as a place of prayer. The reason being is because a couple of moths before that conversation, I was up at Signal Hill because I felt like God telling me to pray for my local church I attend. God answered in a pretyy awesome way to keep that side of the story short. While I was going back to my car after prayer, I looked at one of those pillars on Hilltop Park and found out that Signal Hill was used by Indians to send smoke signals. Then I was like, “Lord it would be so cool for this hill to be a signal of your glory.” Then I opened my bible randomly and it turned to Isaiah 2:2-3:
“In the last days
the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established
as chief among the mountains;
it will be raised above the hills,
and all nations will stream to it.
3Many peoples will come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the house of the God of Jacob.
He will teach us his ways,
so that we may walk in his paths.”
The law will go out from Zion,
the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”
Then I went to my car and the first song that played was a song called “You Said.” The lyrics went “you said ask and I’ll give the nations to you, O Lord that’s the cry of my heart…”
Tammy Dao: (facebook reply) Hey Katzy as I was finishing up your note and before I read that you heard the song “You Said,” that song began playing on my Itunes.
