El Camino Real de los Tejas

The Trail near Alto, Texas
Our next major assignment for the Texas Apostolic Prayer Network will be retracing the El Camino Real de los Tejas. This significant trail goes from Natchitoches, Louisiana to the Texas-Mexico border. El Camino Real has its easternmost beginning in Natchitoches, Louisiana and in Texas runs southwesterly from the piney woods through rolling hills and ranch lands to the arid lands of South Texas and into Mexico.

The Spaniards and the French that marked the trail were followed by such men as Moses Austin and his son Stephen Fuller Austin (The Father of Texas), Jim Bowie, Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, and early missionaries of multiple faiths. An abundance of historic cities await the modern day traveler on the Texas stretch of El Camino Real, which ties together some of Texas's oldest towns including San Antonio, Bastrop, Crockett, Alto, Nacogdoches, and San Augustine.  

The Lord has and is downloading significant information regarding this trip.  He has opened up the following dates for the journey: January 28 through February 2, 2011.  The trip was first conceived as the Lord made a Macedonian Call to me to send resources and reinforcements to John and Jan Peel in Roma, Texas.  

I can remember the Lord prophetically declaring through me, when Chuck Pierce commissioned me in June 2007, that one of the primary reasons for TXAPN was to stand with each other as a united intercessory state network. When someone in El Paso was in need – we must go, as a State, to his or her aid.  If someone needs us in Jasper – we must go.  If someone in Houston, Lamesa, Granbury, Marble Falls, Waskom or anywhere needs us – we must go. Roma NEEDS us. 

But the strategy has gone beyond the first call.  The Lord is instructing us to dismantle major iniquitous roots and routes that were established in our land and to call forth the destiny of our state that was established by the Lord.  There are three things the Lord has asked us to do on this trip: 
  • Kneel in Repentance.  We will stop at key areas along the trail. 
  • Establish His throne through Worship.  We will stop for evening sessions of worship.
  • Give in order to support the work at Roma.  We will carry the TXAPN War Chest to fill up for Bethel Mission. 
Mission San Francisco de los Tejas
We want members of the TXAPN Council, pastors, leaders, intercessors and church members of the entire State of Texas as well as Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Mexico to join us in force along the trail.  A core team will make the entire trip. Let me know if you are led to be on that core team.

Here are the scheduled stops at this point:

  • Friday, January 28 – Natchitoches, Louisiana
  • Saturday, January 29 – Nacogdoches, Texas
  • Sunday, January 30 – Bryan, Texas
  • Monday, January 31 – San Marcos, Texas
  • Tuesday, February 1 – Laredo, Texas  
  • Wednesday, February 2 – Roma, Texas
We will get more information to you regarding worship sites, hotels, etc.  Make plans now to join us on the core team or somewhere along the trail.  It's time for Texas!  It's time to enter our destiny in the Lord!
