Today, Mechelle and I prayed with the mayor of Reno. Cesar Minera who Pastors Word of Life in Reno organized a prayer caravan that encircled the city and culminated at city hall. We were proud to be a part of THE TRUCKEE MEADOWS PRAYER DAY. This was not an event that we put on. This event happens every year and we were honored to join hearts with the Body of Christ in Reno.
However, as you read this, local churches, outreach ministries, Inner City Action from Stockton, along with Mario Murillo Ministries, are combing the Reno/Sparks Nevada region. We are in the homeless camps—not just with food and clothing but a powerful witness. We are inviting the entire community. You can already see our posters in store windows. We are handing out tens of thousands of cards.
Are the windows of heaven opening over Reno and Sparks Nevada? A growing number of local leaders sense it. There’s something special about this moment. There are powerful indicators: The region was bathed in prayer today—we saw unprecedented support and unity at our leader’s meeting August 4th—the city has given us a prime site in the heart of downtown Reno.
Now let me talk to you about that prime site: It’s 700 Sutro Street. Our tent will be visible from interstate 80. That means anyone who drives through Reno will see our tent. Our tent will cover most of the lot, so the city has given us permission to use large parking lots that surround the site. FAVOR!
Teams of intercessors will be walking this sacred ground between now and the start of our Living Proof Crusade. They will ask for signs and wonders to explode on the people. They will ask that cars driving past will feel the tractor beam of God’s love, pull off the interstate and come in the tent. Please agree with us for mighty miracles!
Here’s the most urgent part of my letter: It is a fact of war that when armies are stymied, a breakthrough anywhere can turn the tide of the war. Just the report of a decisive victory anywhere can ignite the morale of an entire army.
This means that even if you don’t live anywhere near Reno you need to pray fervently for this outreach. It does not matter in which city the American Awakening starts. Lord, just let it start!
Now I am talking to anyone who lives near the Reno/Sparks region. Christians have evangelized for thousands of years. In that time, knowledge and technology has exploded. Yet, two forces remain omnipotent: prayer and the personal invitation.
I know, because I have won souls for over 50 years, starting at U.C. Berkeley and in the Bay Area. Nothing will ever replace the power of prayer, and word of mouth. I can’t stress this enough: pray and bring someone to the tent!
Mark 6: 55 says, “they ran through that whole surrounding region and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was.” That last phrase says it all!
Under the tent, there will be wonderful music, powerful messages and surprises. But, the greatest reason to bring people is because we know Jesus will be there.
All seats are free. Remember, we’ll start at 6 PM on Sunday and at 7 PM Monday-Friday. Let’s us pray for those you are bringing for healing or deliverance. Call us at 775 238 3473. I can’t wait to see you at the tent and I can’t wait to tell our partners across America what is happening under the tent! -Mario Murillo
