A synopsis of how to pray for Hawaii...
From the time of the first missionaries to arrive in Hawaii in 1820, there was a rapid acceleration of the Gospel spreading throughout the islands. There was a definite climax in 1843 when Hawaii was declared a Christian nation under the rule of King Kamehameha III (Kauikeauouli) and a Christian constitution was established. Most significant to the Great Awakening in Hawaii was a preacher named Titus Coan (when your team came we prayed specifically for the five-fold ministry to be raised up in Hawaii at the church he pastored in Hilo - Haili Church). Titus and some other missionaries were later arrivals to Hawaii, but came with the distinct anointing of being under the Finney revivals. The ministry fruit in Hawaii included deep repentance, fervent prayer, lavish giving and hunger for God's word. True signs of revival that actually made the more traditional missionaries uncomfortable.
However, the 1800s were also tumultuous times. Under pressure from France Catholic missionaries were allowed into the islands. The Mormon missionaries experienced early success with their doctrine of polygamy which appealed to the still lingering pagan practices. Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma established the Church of England in Hawaii. However, one of the most significant historical impacts may have actually been the U.S. Civil War. This caused a severe drop-off in missions support and initiated a move toward the missionaries in Hawaii to be self-sufficient. Subsequently, most of the missionary descendants got involved in politics and business, because the Civil War also launched the sugar industry in Hawaii with the traditional supplies of sugar from the South being cut-off to the North. The mission to Hawaii was officially closed in 1870 with the work being left to the native church at that point.
The Kingdom of Hawaii was overthrown by primarily American business interests in 1893. The most notable leader of the revolutionaries was Loren Andrews Thurston, a grandson of the first missionaries (Asa and Lucy Thurston). Reportedly, Asa Thurston did not want his children to directly associate with the Hawaiian children, so they were sent for schooling in New England. They later returned to Hawaii with an interest in business and politics, and it was into this world that Loren A. Thurston was born. (As an indication of spiritual strongholds, the chapel at Punahou School is named after a Thurston descendant.)
I believe, and have been sharing with Hawaiian Christians, that the keys to the Hawaiian Kingdom were actually given over to satan by King Kalakaua (Reigned 1874-1891). He was Queen Liliuokalani's brother and his death resulted in Liliuokalani taking the throne. Kalakaua was a 33rd degree mason and his masonic implements are openly displayed in the Iolani Palace. It has been on my heart to pray over the implements for a while and the LORD made a way on the day after Thanksgiving this year. I attended a prayer meeting at Kawaiahao Church on Wednesday before Thanksgiving and met a prophetic intercessor from the Solomon Islands, Papa Michael. When I asked him about his awareness of freemasonry he began sharing how he had prayed in the Grand Lodge in NYC and also at the Wall Street site dedicated by the freemasons. The LORD divinely orchestrated our prayer time to evict the spirit of freemasonry. As for some interesting signs, not only was it the coincidence of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah which will not take place for another 70,000 years, but it also coincided with the Hawaiian festival of Makahiki which was taking place when Captain Cook became the first Western explorer to discover the Hawaiian islands in January 1778. Add to that the comet ISON headed toward the sun.
When I attended Punahou School we went to chapel regularly, but never heard the Gospel shared. It was a time of spirituality that included just about everything but Christianity. It has gotten worse today, where high school chapel was presided over by an openly gay teacher. The chaplains just lost became "spiritual advisors" and lost most of their other status too. Oversized Obama posters have been on display and are very reminiscent of Mao Tse Tung propaganda. Pierre Omidyar, founder of eBay, is a Punahou alum and has launched out on a radical expansion of his ultra liberal media foray. There is a regular group of intercessors that I have helped to gather to pray for Punahou, and one of the moms just confided that her 4th grade daughter came home from school with this story. Her teacher announced to the class that he was getting married to the delight of most of the 4th grade girls. Then he said he was marrying a Japanese man which, of course, led to stunned silence. He proceeded to ask the class to raise their hands if they were happy for him. Same-sex marriage just became legal this past Monday in Hawaii.
In part of my testimony to the Legislature opposing SS marriage, I likened the government's efforts to being the most unrighteous thing to happen since the overthrow of the Kingdom. This time the overthrow was marriage, family and religious freedom and a defilement of the land. It was also a reprise of the same demonic scheme of business and politics with a "church" endorsement. A number of false prophets testified in support of SS marriage in Hawaii.
BUT GOD is moving and is still the Victory!
I have come full circle to the first message I ever preached, which is based on 1 Peter 2:9,10: "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; which in time past were not a people, but are now a people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy."
In particular, Hawaii has had the only monarchy in the United States and the first ruling monarchs were God fearing men and women. The Hawaiian Kingdom was indeed a holy nation in the 1840s. What I have just felt as revelation in my spirit is that the "chosen generation" refers to God's promise in Malachi 4:6, "And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse." During the testimonies before the Legislature, I was particularly moved by a number of young, school age children who eloquently testified. Indeed, they put the Legislators to shame and these Legislators did not recognize Jesus speaking through this young people.
As to where I sense the LORD leading me to pray and minister right now:
1. I am making connection with the Hawaiian churches, particularly on my heart are those churches started in the 1800s, and proclaiming 1 Peter 2:9,10 and placing emphasis on the connection to Malachi 4:6 as we petition the LORD to heal any generational wounds and bring generational unity.
2. Sins to be remitted are sexual immorality (Hawaiian "playground" and now SS marriage), blood sacrifice (first state to legalize abortion), broken covenants (overthrow of Hawaiian government), idolatry and love of money (covenant with freemasonry, Mormon church, Catholic church, renaissance of Hawaiian "gods" and corrupt politics)
3. I believe it is time for the "mainstream" churches to have true reconciliation with the Hawaiian churches and affirm their role in ushering in a New Awakening.
4. The Hokulea (Voyaging Canoe) is about to embark on a worldwide journey. There is another significant Punahou connection with its key navigator, Hawaiian Alumnus Nainoa Thompson, who needs the LORD. Hokulea pays homage to the gods of where ever they port and will be launching into waters such as off the coast of Africa with the threat of pirates. It represents though a new inspiration for missions to come out of Hawaii in conjunction with a move of Holy Spirit.
5. In networking with other intercessors I am encouraging them to pray with "Sovereign Authority" through revelation as their position as sons and daughters of the King of kings, and to evict all evil spirits trespassing on the land which is the LORD's. There is also a movement toward "Sovereignty" by native Hawaiians, but my word to them as Christians is to exercise the authority given them by the LORD while continuing to be submitted to the governmental authorities over them and see what the LORD will do.
Also, Hawaii has always considered itself to be a "melting pot" of cultures, but I believe it is time for it to be a melting pot for the LORD for purification of the nations and with a direct connection to Israel as being "the ends of the earth."
I am very thankful for our past relationship and how the LORD may be continuing things forward in this new season. I am also open to any feedback and impressions you receive. Please let me know if anything is unclear or if it raises any other questions. I am not an expert in history, but have been doing a lot of reading/research and the LORD has been making divine connections.
MAHALO NUI LOA ("Big thanks"),

Lila was hospitalized in Alaska for blood clots in both lungs and clots starting from the groin to her toes on the left leg. She is asking for healing prayer regarding this, and also, because she will be discharged tomorrow and plans to fly back to Florida on Monday.
That the blood clots be removed from her lungs and leg
For Bob in Florida-that Jesus will comfort strengthen him as his wife flies home.
Lila and Bob covet your prayers especially during Sunday when she will be discharged from the hospital
Cover Lila's trip on Monday.
