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.

Leaders

“I will take you, my servant Zerubbabel…I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you” declares the Lord Almighty.  Haggai 2:23

Jesus, we honour You as the one “who decides who will rise and who will fall “  we appeal to You over every challenge, change or potential change of leadership, over the position of Prime Minister in this nation, and over every constituency battle, and we declare those and only those You have appointed will sit in the seats of influence of this land. Psalm 75:7

Lord, even as You have released a new move of Your Spirit, we cry out that will touch those of every political party, changing minds and shifting perspectives, that those who know You - will look to You, those who have open minds - will receive wisdom from You, and those who are opposed to You, You will oppose. 
Proverbs 8:9 TPT;

Even as Your word in Ecclesiastes 4: 10 states, “ If either of them falls down, one can help the other up” we decree and declare a new level of partnering  will come upon the Prime Minister, Cabinet, and all those involved with Brexit negotiations, we declare they will work as a team with unity and cohesion, marked out by a mantle of Godly wisdom, authority and stature, that Your will and Your purpose for this nation will be fulfilled.

We speak health and strength to all those carrying enormous responsibility at this time, we speak peace into marriages and protection over children, in Jesus Name.

Day  58

So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?’ Hebrews 13:6 (NIV)

GOD IS ON YOUR SIDE

When deployed on exercises with the RAF Mobile Catering Squadron I learnt never to worry about being fed. Though food ran out on the servery in the mess tent, freshly cooked food always appeared. Deploying with the chefs, the creators of food, meant I need not fear going hungry! God is the creator of the universe and he is our helper; we have no need to fear. We have peace because of who we are with. God is with us whatever the circumstances; even when life is not going as intended. (Who hopes for conflict at work, or to see family unwell?) He is our helper who we can trust. He has not brought us this far to forsake us.

PRAYER
Heavenly Father, you are the creator of the world and your love for us endures forever. Wherever we go and whatever we do, you are there. Help us to know your presence with us so that we will not be afraid. Make us messengers of your peace. Amen [Mike Forsyth is a trainee vicar at Ridley Hall in Cambridge. Prior to training he served in the RAF as a Logistics Officer]

Day 57

See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands Isaiah 49:16a (NRSV)

LETTER TO MY GRANDPA

Dear Grandpa,
I’m shortly to set off for the Somme to meet a German, retracing the journey you took just over 100 years ago to face the Germans. I’m taking your identity tag inscribed with your name and military number, and scanty memories of what you experienced. My uncle, your youngest son, told me that your service included collecting those injured and the bodies of those killed from no man’s land.
The German I’m meeting is named Martin, a personal friend from a partnership between the churches we served. We discovered that we each had grandfathers who served at the Somme. Like you, his grandfather was a Christian. You share Christian names too, you being Frederick and he was Friedrich.
As we meet, Martin will remember his grandfather and I’ll remember you, and we’ll both reflect on the folly of war. I wonder if in another 100 years, other friends may meet to remember the folly of conflicts fought in our lifetime, for we have not yet learned to live in peace.
Yours in love, sorrow and hope,
David

PRAYER
Dear God, Thank you for our names, Frederick or Friedrich, Freda or Frida, engraved on identity tags in conflict, inscribed on the palms of your hands in eternity. Help us to forget ‘sides’, recognise the child of God in each person, and draw closer to living as sisters and brothers in peace.

ACTION
Write a letter either to someone from the other ‘side’ seeking reconciliation and peace. What would you say to them? If you could meet, what gift might you take?

Call to Prayer is having a gathering in Meriden, near Coventry today to declare Smith Wigglesworth’s prophecy in 1947 and Jean Darnell’s vision. Here is the link: http://bit.ly/meridenprayer

Jean Darnell’s vision…

JEAN DARNALL 1967
 
DURING those weeks a vision came to me. It appeared three different times, during prayer, and it was the same vision each time. Now most of my revelation from the Lord is what I just ‘know’: He makes me know something, and I speak it forth. But now and then I have a vision, and when I do I have a pretty good one! Some people have a very garden-variety type of visions: they’re getting them all the time, you know. But I just have them now and then. And it’s usually a milestone: a turning point or very large directive in my life.
And what I saw was the British Isles, as in a bird’s-eye view. A kind of haze was over the whole, like a green fog. And then little pinpricks of light began to appear from the top of Scotland to Land’s End. Then the Lord seemed to draw me closer to these lights, and I saw that they were fires that were burning. They were multiplying from the top of Scotland to Land’s End. Then I saw lightening come and strike those fires, the brightest spots particularly, and there was a kind of explosion, and rivers of fire flowed down. Again, the sense of direction was from the top of Scotland to Land’s End. But some of those rivers of fire didn’t stop there. They went right across the Channel and didn’t stop there. They went right across the Channel and spread out into the Continent.
The third time this vision appeared I figured the Lord was showing me or trying to tell me something. I was in Dorset by this time, at St Mary’s (Church of England) with Rev Ken Prior, and I asked him if I could stay an extra day. You know, there’s nothing quite so awkward as an evangelist the day after the meetings are over. But I said, “Could I stay an extra day in the vicarage and pray? I need to find out what the Lord is trying to say to me.” Because up to that point I was really still on my way to Hong Kong. And the Lord spoke to me very clearly. It was a wonderful day. It certainly changed the path of my life.
When I say the Lord spoke to me, I don’t mean that it was an audible voice. But it was a knowing. That strong knowing, like reading at the end of a book and knowing exactly what was going to happen. And you can’t change it: it is written. And so it was written upon my heart, the meaning of this vision.
Phase 1: THE GLOWING FIRES
The Lord impressed it on my Heart that those fires I saw were groups of people whom He would make intensely hungry for New Testament Christianity. They would start reading their Bibles and saying, for instance, as they read the book of Acts, “Well, where is this happy church? Where are these people so full of the power of the Holy Spirit? Where are these miracles? Where is this growth, this vitality, this courage, this boldness that these people had? Is that for today – can we have it today? Should the church be this way?”
And as these questions were being planted in their hearts, the Lord Jesus said He would make them very hungry for the Holy Spirit; He would fill them with the Holy Spirit, and out of those gifts would flow ministries that would enrich the Body of Christ. The whole concept of the Body of Christ would come alive, and barriers between denominations and different types of Christians would break down as people met each other. The Lord said He would move these people all over the country. After he had taught them gifts, he would move them to another place where they would carry that fire, and where they would meet others also who were being renewed by the Holy Spirit. He would put them in different situations from what they were used to, so that they would get to know people of other denominations, other cultures and other classes, and be able to communicate to them the blessings that the Lord had given them. And then He told me that during that time He would also test them. There would be great testing of faith, great waiting times. He would teach them spiritual warfare. He would show them the meaning of the power of the blood of Jesus, the name of Jesus, the word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit.
Phase 2: THE COMING OF THE LIGHTNING
Then I asked the Lord, “What does the lightning stand for?” and he said,
“Unlike the first part, in which I will be speaking to Christians and preparing My church and renewing it and reviving the saints, the lightning represents a second part of the vision, in which I will bring a spiritual awakening to the nation that will be a witness to the unsaved, to the ‘un-churched’, to the non-Christian.
“Through these believers I will bring a witness to this land. They will be an army of witnesses. And I will begin to release their ministries so that when they give their testimonies there will be apostolic signs following and accompanying their testimonies. Where ears have been deaf and hearts have been hard and eyes have been blind, I will touch the people of this land and they will begin to hear the testimony of My people, they will begin to see the manifestations of My power, and their hearts will begin to believe. Thousands and thousands of people are going to come into my kingdom through this army of witnesses, through this people movement – not characterized by any particular evangelist or great organisation at the front, but just My people rising up, led by My spirit and beginning to move forward with a new faith for evangelism, a new zeal to share Jesus with others. And as they give their testimonies, I will release their ministries of healing and miracles, and there will be signs and wonders accompanying their ministries. So many people will be saved, in the villages as well as in the cities, in the schools, in the government, in media, in industry. It will affect the destiny of this nation; it will determine the course of the times.”

Phase 3: STREAMS ACROSS THE CHANNEL
Then I said, “Lord, what about these streams that go on across the Channel into Europe?” and He said,
“That represents people who will rise up in the midst of this people movement, this army of witnesses in Britain, whom I will make My communicators.” 
Now I hadn’t used that word very much before in ministry I said, “Lord, what do you mean by communicators?” and He said,“They will not only be people endowed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, with strong faith, but they will also be people talented in the arts. They will be writers, musicians, singers and actors, and also technicians in television, radio and the mass media. I will call and send them and put them in strategic places. I will bless their natural talents with my Spirit, and they will be good: they will excel. They will be leaders in their fields. I will send them into Europe, where they will meet other people in the media, and through them I will release the word of God very fast in Europe. The result will be another wave of a spiritual awakening, with thousands coming to Christ throughout Europe.”
Well, I got kind of excited after I’d heard all that from the Lord, and I said, “Lord, why are you telling me this? I’m on my way to Hong Kong!” And He said, “Oh, no you’re not: you’re going to stay right here, and I’m going to bring Elmer here.” And I said, ‘ What do you want us to do, Lord?’ And He said, “I want you to nourish the fires that I light.” So I’m not the firelighter. The Lord is the Firelighter!
[Copied from Richard’s Watch]
