Revelation 22:1-2, NKJV
And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore 12 fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Meditate on how this verse affects the First Nations of North America.

The Anna Call

by The Call/KC

“You, as Indians, are a sleeping giant, the original Americans. You are now awakening! Just around the corner you may become a spiritual super power in this country that could change not only America, but the world!”—Dr. Billy Graham, 1975
Forty-one years later from October 7–9, 2016, a landmark gathering occurred in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. This town is one of the most well-known, heartbreaking places of its kind. Here is the geographical ending point of the Trail of Tears, a death march that took place in 1838-39 representing a broken covenant and the forcible relocation of several tribes.
In this same location the ANNA Call (All Nations North America) staged the biggest First Nations gathering in honor of Jesus Christ. In place of the broken covenant, there was an appeal to the everlasting covenant-keeping God of heaven. Gathering from across the entire North American continent, people met for three days in hopes of bringing a different kind of conclusion to the Trail of Tears. This conclusion is one that Christ alone can bring—redemption, emotional healing, and a rollback of the curse of poverty and despair on the First Nations peoples.

Pray that the Anna Call will be just a beginning towards spiritual and emotional healing for First Nation peoples. Pray that the Lord will use “healed and whole” First Nation believers to go to the unreached with Christ’s message of healing and wholeness.
