Daniel’s Cry-Wisdom’s Call: A united cry for wisdom in an age of uncertainty
1-31 December, 2016
"Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him. I thank You and praise You, O God of my fathers; You have given me wisdom and might, and have now made known to me what we asked of You." Daniel 2:20-23
Dear <<First Name>>,
Our deepest thanks and appreciation to the many who fasted, prayed, sacrificed at the horns of the altar for the USA elections. With such a mighty outpouring and interweaving of prayer throughout the nations, we remain confident that whatever our perspective/view, His will was accomplished.
That being said, the USA election was just a hurdle in a road now unfolding and beckoning us forward. In times like this, the subtle temptation is to feel the battle is over and fall into the hands of complacency. Rather, we are in a mighty spiritual battle. Now is the time to refresh, re-mantle, and prepare ourselves for the coming season in order to navigate the road ahead with clarity and understanding. 2 Timothy 4:3 warns, "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine….because they have itching ears." As moral decay fritters away at foundations of Truth, how are we as Christians to respond? A cry for wisdom is surging. Like Daniel, we, as God’s people, are being called to a higher level of understanding and discerning of the times we are in, and will be entering.
We, therefore, invite you to participate in a personal and corporate call and cry for “Wisdom” through His Word in Proverbs, "Daniel's Cry/Wisdom's Call."
Vision: Declaring God’s Word in the book of Proverbs as a united cry for wisdom and revelation to fortify, strengthen, and reinforce us individually and as a global body of believers for the days and challenges ahead.

Wisdom’s Call: As we link together across the nation's in agreement with the wisdom of Proverbs, His Word will not return void and will accomplish the purpose for which He sent it.

Daniel 2:20-23: “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are His. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king.” Daniel 2:20-23
Proverbs 1:1-4: “The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel: for gaining wisdom and instruction; for understanding words of insight; for receiving instruction in prudent behavior, doing what is right and just and fairlet the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance.”
Proverbs 8:1-3 “Does not wisdom cry out, and understanding lift up her voice? She takes her stand on the top of the high hill, Beside the way, where the paths meet. She cries out by the gates, at the entry of the city, at the entrance of the doors."
