“And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it” Job 1:7 KJV
Yesterday I wrote about the continued need for intercessory prayer and asked for you, whoever you are & wherever you are, to join us in prayers of protection around Britain. Whilst others prepared physically for a show for the Victims of Manchester, we needed to be both alert & spiritually minded of the warfare we are in. Sadly, today we are visited by the distressing news of terror in the City of London. Many of us waking up to breaking news of evil, roaming our streets and causing devastation. Fear & dread. Hysteria & hatred. The is what Satan unleashed, “he is seeking whom he may destroy”. 7 People are dead. 48 People have been injured. All are Victims. All have had their lives cut short. The sanctity of life, once again, stolen & threatened. “Satan comes to kill, steal & destroy” BUT we are & will stand, against the wickedness from the enemy. God gave life to live more abundantly. The enemy is raging his ugly head. We must call on the Lord Jesus & will do this in prayer. We turn our faces to you Lord & plead to You to crush the “roaring lion, to cease his raging” against Your people. This evil is not done in the name of God, it is the wickedness of their hearts, turned cold against life & the beauty of living in peace. The enemy has fed these perpetrators lies and they have acted wrongly, on those lie but we plead the Blood of Jesus over London. Over the United Kingdom. WE stand not afraid or divided by harmful degrading words & retaliation but we call on Jesus to comfort, heal & deliver. We call on Him for peace. God will avenge the evil done to the many innocent people who have cruelly lost their lives in this atrocity; we are to leave judgement to Him. We ask Him to enlarge the walls of our hearts to love, & to forgive; no matter how hard, even more. As Satan is relentless in his war against humanity, so we must be relentless in our love for our enemies.
God we ask you for a special anointing on the Emergency Services, the Police, Paramedics & warriors who extended the hand of friendship, love, comfort to the dying, as they were trying to save the wounded, the murdered. As they were helping the distraught & distressed, offering food & shelter to the scared, stranded & lost, last night. We pray again for the Government who has to act & do right, in the face of real adversity. We ask for You Lord Jesus to lead, direct & grant wise counsel to them. Lord heal Your people, heal our hearts from hatred. Forgive us for the wrong we have done. Hear the prayers & cries of Your people & comfort London in her time of agony & distress. For the 7 families who lost their loved ones last night, we lift your hurt up to God, we hold you as our own family. To the critically injured, we do the same and walk beside you as you heal & recover, especially, from the emotional trauma you have witnessed. To those bystanders who were terrified by what you witnessed on the streets of London last night, the amazing emergency services having to run to danger than from away & the medical teams, we ask God to bless you for your courage. WE thank you for your continued bravery to protect, no matter what you face.
