Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name Y@HOVAH TSIDKENU LORD our Righteousness Jer. 23:6 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.

Cabinet Meeting on Monday

God is our refuge and strength,
A[a] very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,

Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the [b]midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah.
[Ps. 46:1-3]

We praise and thank You Father God that You are our refuse and strength, that You have the Nation of Britain in the palm of Your hand and You are directing everything that happens to this Nation. So we do not fear and we trust You to lead us every step of the way.
  
There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the [c]tabernacle of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her, she shall not be [d]moved;

God shall help her, just [e]at the break of dawn.
[Ps. 46:4-5]

We pray for the Cabinet meeting on Monday when the Brexit deal to be struck with the EU will be discussed. As Your word declares we trust You to help this Nation with the Cabinet agreeing on the Brexit deal that You have prepared. Help each minister to be guided by Your Holy Spirit to know the right plans You have established for this Nation and agree together on the deal to be presented to the EU.
 
The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
[Ps. 46:6-7]

Jehovah Tsidkenu The LORD my Righteousness You are with us and whatever other Nations will do to attack us or divert us from following the truth You will protect us and guide us on the path You have chosen for us.
    
Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;

He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.
[Ps. 46:8-9]

Jehovah Rohi LORD our Shepherd You have always protected this Nation and we know that no weapon formed against this Nation shall prosper and every tongue which rises against us in judgment You shall condemn. (Is. 54:17)
1Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
[Ps. 46:10-11]

Help us Father God to be still in Your presence and exalt You among the Nations and in the earth. We pray in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Day 50

Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree. Let me get you something to eat, so you can be refreshed... Genesis 18:4-5 (NIV)

RADICAL HOSPITALITY
This story of Abraham and Sarah’s welcome is a model of hospitality. When he notices three strangers on the horizon, Abraham is recovering from his recent circumcision, resting in the midday sun. Yet he runs to greet these unknown travellers, welcoming them to stay for refreshment. He orders the fattest calf to be slaughtered. Sarah bakes cakes, and together they prepare a feast for their guests. Abraham stands by to serve and converse with them, and before long he and Sarah discover they are not the hosts after all. It is their guests who came to deliver a gift – the message of a long awaited son. The hosts are now guests – the tables are turned. And this is a model for our own hospitality to strangers today. Do we welcome those who are far off – unknown or unnoticed visitors to our homes and churches? Are we willing to be their guests also – to sit and eat in their places? When we reach across a divide in a moment of radical hospitality, we can find ourselves welcoming not only the stranger, but Christ himself.

PRAYER
Father God, we know that you are the great reconciler of all things. We pray that we would see with your eyes, notice your image in unlikely people and reach out to them with your hospitality. Ask God to show you, then take action.

ACTION
What does radical hospitality look like in your context? This week, who could you welcome to your home or your church?
[Canon Sarah Snyder is the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Adviser for Reconciliation.]

 Transformation – Children  21st September 2018

children are a heritage from the Lord; offspring a reward from Him”  Psalm 127: 3

We declare children are a gift from You, so in the Name of Jesus, we declare in this nation, children will be safe and secure, loved, enjoyed, and protected, that everything You have put within them, of fun, of laughter, of imagination and gift will be released and encouraged. We declare irrespective of family background and experience, they will grow in favour with God and man, and we call every law of this land into alignment with Your word and Your heart.

We thank You Lord, for those who have served faithfully within our Sunday Schools, children’s churches and organisations over the years, and now we declare this is a new day, and we declare this is the time for a new move of Your Spirit amongst the children of our land. In the Name of Jesus, we call forth those carrying fresh revelation and creative ideas, able to teach Your children with relevance, life and depth. We thank You for the new wineskins You are releasing regarding children’s ministry, and we speak shift and change into any curriculum, plan or methodology which is of the old season and we decree, the children’s ministries of this land will take hold of the challenge and opportunity of the day. We declare Lord, Your people will be willing volunteers in this day of Your power.

We decree and declare children and teens will grasp the power of Your love, Your gospel, and Your purpose within their lives, rising spiritually mature beyond their years, equipped and empowered in heart, mind and Spirit to reach their world.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. John 14:27 (NRSV)

DO NOT BE AFRAID

For as long as we manufacture fear, we will look for warrior heroes. Not only heroes, but machinery of war and order, and the everyday safeguards of privatised living, ringfenced land and water, property and fuel stocks, gated homes and borders, nest-eggs and reputations... But blessed are those who consider birds and lilies, risk persecution and peace-making, and despite being hurt, refuse (more courageously than any warrior) the temptation to harden defences. If you love me you will keep my commandments, he said. And then the strange commandment, unreasonable imperative: Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.

PRAYER
Teach us, Peaceful Prince, the art of living without harmful defences, so we might bear the mystery of your passion in resurrection hope.

Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name ‘ADONAI JEHOVAH LORD God Master Gen. 15:2 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.

Declaration 20th Sep 2018


From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands”  Acts 17:5

We thank you Jesus for every aspect of Godly inheritance that You put within our land. We thank you for Kingdom foundations within our government, justice systems and many aspects of our society. We declare Your purpose over this nation to display Your Kingdom and Your Kingship. This is a day when You are connecting the past with the future. Now, we continue to declare the Lordship and Sovereign will of God over every aspect of the Brexit Bill, over the future relationship with the European Union, over Trade Policy, the Customs Union, the Irish Border, and the role of the European Court of Justice, that His plans for this nation, in all their fullness will be established..

As Theresa May meets with EU leaders today, , we declare “You will make the crooked places straight” and in the Name of Jesus, we call forth a spirit of reconciliation amongst all the leaders of Europe that Your Kingdom purpose will overwhelm any ungodly political, vengeful or social agenda. Isaiah 42:16

We speak strength, help, wisdom and authority to Theresa May, that the fullness of the leadership You have put within her will be released. We decree Heavens design and schedule over every discussion, that every log-jam, every deadlock and every delay caused by man or the enemy will be released, and we speak a convergence and completion that the outworking of every decision made will align and connect the United Kingdom according to God’s perfect design and destiny.

Do not repay evil for evil... but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing... seek peace and pursue it. 1 Peter 3:9,11 (ESV)

FORGIVENESS IS NOT EASY

He came to know the peace of God in 2009 and is now an Army Scripture Reader. Don’t repay evil for evil; that is a hard lesson. I have seen some extraordinary examples of this on the battlefield where colleagues have been killed or injured yet the soldiers hold the line. Or the wife of one of the pilots in the 9/11 attacks who publicly forgave the terrorist who killed so many on that day. The gymnast who, after being abused by her doctor, was able to say in court that she forgave him so that he might come to know grace, to ‘find grace where none should be’. How can these people offer forgiveness? At least in the last two accounts it is because they know the peace that comes from knowing Jesus; they can seek peace and pursue it.

PRAYER
Lord, in a world which often seems so evil, let us hold on to your Word, to seek peace and pursue it. [Gavin Dickson served in the Scots Guards seeing conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan]
