Janice Ponds’ Prayer Tour


In 2018, I was invited to go on a prayer tour to Washington, D.C. It was organized by Our Time in History. The entire event immediately got my attention as I absolutely love history!

I had been engulfed in a process of discovering history that was accurately told as a result of writing a book that dealt with how deceived we have been as Americans. This deception occurs simply because we have been lied to over and over again about so many things from a historical perspective. I knew beyond all doubt that I was to be a part of that prayer tour in 2018.

When I arrived in Washington, D.C. in 2018, that’s when I met Rene Couture, from Our Time in History. As the organizer of the tour, it was obvious that she was full of so much knowledge! It coincided with original documents that I had researched. Being involved in intercessory prayer as an integral part of the tour took things to an entirely other level.

All I can say is that by participating in the 2018 event, my life was totally changed! It was powerful as we embarked upon a journey that was consistent with what I had discovered in original documents that I had researched. I finally saw with my own eyes what matched history being accurately told. Praying as a team was indescribably powerful! We prayed in physical places that absolutely blew my mind!

We have gone through so much as a nation since 2018, and God made an indelible impression upon my heart that he wanted me to organize a prayer tour this year. Out of obedience, I’m stepping out in faith and partnering with Our Time in History to do just that! Efforts have been made to revise and even eliminate history, but we will not fall for it. I have great anticipation regarding what will occur on this tour! September 25-29, 2023, here we come!

I’ve said for many years that something supernatural happens when you go to the places where history happened. God is not done with America. He still searches the earth for people whose hearts are turned towards Him so that He can support them. 

The cause of freedom is the cause of God, and America has always been that beacon of hope that the rest of the world looks to for freedom and liberty. You might ask, “Why is that?” It is because America’s greatness has always been tied to our goodness and our goodness and success is most certainly tied to our connection to God. 

Our founders called this amazing nation a “holy experiment in liberty.” They didn’t know that we would become the greatest nation the world has ever known. Each one of us plays a part in the success or failure of the nation. Come be a part of this life-changing week as together we learn more about our incredible godly history as a nation, and become inspired to take your place in OUR TIME IN HISTORY.
