Justice 8

 

“Give Your love of Justice to the King, O God, and righteousness to the King’s son. Help him judge your people in the right way; let the poor always be treated fairly. May the mountains yield prosperity for all, and may the hills be fruitful. Help him to defend the poor, to rescue the children of the needy, and to crush their oppressors. May they fear you as long as the sun shines, as long as the moon remains in the sky. Yes, forever” Psalm 72: 1-5 NLT

We thank you Lord for the call on this Nation to display Your righteousness and justice. We praise you for our heritage of Godly justice, and we decree, this is the time for a reawakening of kingdom values within our justice system.

We honour You as the Highest Authority in Heaven and earth, so Lord we appeal to You on behalf of our land, over every law and the administration of laws in this nation, and we cry out for a new season of alignment with Your principles of freedom of choice, freedom of conscience and the sanctity of human life.

Now Lord, even as a new 10 Minute Rule Bill seeking to change existing abortion legislation comes before Parliament, we come into agreement with Your word, that life is created by You and life begins in the mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13; Luke 1:44.

We come into Your Presence and we repent on behalf of every law and interpretation of the law that has resulted in the destruction of life of unborn children; we appeal to Your mercy, that any judgment against us will be reversed as we cry out for Your will to be done.

Now, as Your Ekklesia in this nation, we speak over Parliament, that the laws of this land will come into alignment with Your Laws & Your Statutes, and the fullness of the counsel of Your Word. We decree a turning around of every ungodly precedent set, that this nation will be positioned for blessing in the days ahead.

The Lord is enthroned as King forever. Psalm 29:10-11 (NIV)

NEVER AGAIN

As we look back on tragic events which have long been confined to the history books, how many times have we heard those two words, ‘never again’? Never again, indeed, yet each time we switch on the news channels on our TVs, or pick up a newspaper, all we see is conflict: conflict between countries from across the globe. It’s a far too familiar story, with history constantly repeating itself. Countries at war may seem far away, and yet, time and time again, we see similar conflicts on our own streets, with young men losing their lives … still. What have we really learned? So, this year, more than ever, let us remember that ‘never again’ starts with me.

PRAYER
Lord, we remember those lives lost in all those world conflicts of yesteryear. We pray for all those families who are caught up in similar conflicts both at home and abroad today. We lift our world leaders to you and pray for your peace to be sovereign over all. Amen [Paul Gask is a Regional Director for Christian Vision for Men]

Brexit

 

We come into agreement with Your word in Matthew 17: 20

“you can say to this mountain, ‘move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible to you” (Also: Zechariah 4:7)

We declare You desire that this nation will display Your Kingdom and Your Kingship, moving in agreement with both Your spirit and Your statutes.

We declare God is the Master Planner of heaven and earth. His plans are for good and not evil, greater than every plan of man or of the enemy to bring confusion, division or hopelessness.

At this critical time in the final Brexit negotiations, we come into agreement with His word in Romans 4:17: He is “The God who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist.” Over all matters concerning Brexit under discussion; the potential UK-EU Customs partnership; the issues of the Irish Border and all matters relating to trade we stand as the Ekklesia church and in the Name of Jesus we call forth the strategies of heaven.

We declare over all negotiations and stumbling blocks, nothing is impossible to You and we speak “grace, grace and more grace” to every seeming impossibility, in Jesus Name. Zechariah 4:7

We speak Your clarity into the atmosphere of confusion between Europe and UK over the hindrances, diversions and weariness and we declare “the purposes of God will be fulfilled.”

Again Jesus said, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ He answered, ‘Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.’ Jesus said, ‘Take care of my sheep.’ John 21:16 (NIV)

FORGIVENESS CAN LEAD TO PEACE

One obstacle to peace can be a lack of forgiveness. In the Bible (John 21) we read of Jesus’ forgiveness of Peter. The back story is that Peter, whilst under pressure had sinned, he had denied three times that he knew Jesus. After Jesus died, Peter felt awful, it could have destroyed him. But now Jesus offered forgiveness. Three times Jesus asked him if he loved him, in some ways to cancel his three denials. Peter now could ‘take care of my sheep’; history tells us that he did do this and he brought peace and joy with the good news of Jesus. This path is still available to us, to know forgiveness, to forgive and so to bring peace.

PRAYER
Lord God, we thank you for the example of the reinstatement of Peter and the effect that he had. We pray this path for ourselves, those that we know and those on our minds from the news. As we are forgiven we pray that we will forgive and bring peace.

Yet this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope... Lamentations 3:1-24 (NIV)

WHERE DOES MY HOPE COME FROM?

My family was caught up in the partition struggle between India and Pakistan 70 years ago during which more than a million people died and 14 million were displaced. My aunt took a terrifying train journey at the time: a young lady wearing six sets of clothes, carrying one suitcase with all her belongings. Many didn’t arrive.

We see world conflicts today which are deeply established, between strong minded opponents, resourced by powerful nations, that affect millions of innocent people. Many of us wonder how these situations can change. But wars do end; conflicts do cease.

In the Bible, the author of Lamentations – traditionally thought to be Jeremiah – describes a person who faced God’s anger. It was a hopeless situation. There was nothing he could do. Yet he called to mind God’s love, and so had hope. Picture Jesus facing God’s anger on our behalf.

We may not understand why God allows great conflicts in our world. There are no easy answers. But we can choose to focus on God’s mercy and love, and have hope.

My aunt died a few years ago, living in her own home, having enjoyed many years with her children as well as four grandchildren. Starting that train journey 70 years earlier she wouldn’t have imagined that one day she’d enjoy summer afternoons with her grandchildren. And yet in time she did.

PRAYER
Heavenly Father, in ourselves we are not able to bring peace or hope to this world. But thank you that you have not forgotten us. We pray for your mercy on our world, our cities and our towns. Give us peace we pray. In Jesus’ name.

ACTION
Visit older neighbours or relations and ask them to share memories where they’ve been caught up in conflict situations. If appropriate, offer to pray with them, asking Jesus to give them peace, and sooth any painful memories. Remember to pray for them afterwards.

God’s Guidance Assured

 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jer. 29:11

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.
Is. 54:17

We decree and declare we are MOVING FORWARD into the path the Lord OPENS before us as we leave the EU.
The Way will be miraculous, none can look at the circumstances and say we did it on our own.
Don’t worry about the enemy coming after us; the Lord will protect us and win Himself GLORY at their expense!

We decree and declare the Angels of the Most High/ ’Elyon are protecting us from those who seek us harm.
DO NOT FEAR, for the Lord will not leave us or forsake us.
Those who are pursuing us will be brought down; it is God’s/Elohim’s plan and not our own.
REST in His Presence.

We decree and declare we HEAR the Lord’s/ Adonai’s voice.
Speak forth as He COMMANDS and we will see the Hand of the Lord move on our behalf.
We will see that NOT EVEN ONE OF THEM will escape this move of the Lord/Adonai.
We decree and declare that as we CONSULT the Lord/ Adonai before leaving our present position we will not take it upon ourself to determine our way.
Remember God’s Ways are far above Human reasoning or knowing.
LOOK to Him for He knows the End from the Beginning.

Heavenly Father thank you for your promises which are always Yea and Amen and we ask that You will give us a SIGN that we will KNOW Your leading and Your PEACE that passes all understanding and  as we TRUST in You, You will GUIDE us in the way we should go in Jesus’ Name Amen.

Day 77

Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. Proverbs 3:17 (KJV)

A FORETASTE OF PEACE

God’s promised future for our world is the subject of Cecil Spring-Rice’s second verse in his hymn: ‘I Vow To Thee My Country’. Written ten years after the original in 1918 and in response to a world transformed through war, it contrasts the hardness of war with the gentleness of peace - the Christian hope for the future. Peace had been won at great cost but Spring-Rice knew that true peace could not be won through the violence of humanity and would not come in its fullness in this world. That peace was a taste of what is to come and a sign that God’s kingdom is near. War had ruled for four long years but peace would win out in the end. So too God has won.

PRAYER
Heavenly Father, we thank you for your promise of true peace. Give to us, your servants, that peace which the world cannot give; that we may offer a foretaste of your peace to those we meet in both our words and actions. Amen
