“Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?” Joel 2:17 KJV
Lord God we beseech You to hear the cries of Your people. I start this way because what is occurring in Britain, the hatred, turmoil & distress in this land, it may seem as though God is not hearing us or answering our prayers but there’s something about a Parent that when their child is in trouble or danger, they act. God our Father needs to hear us cry out to Him. There is no time for pride or doubt, we the people of Britain, Gods children, must implore Him to act. He said if “we ask we shall be given; if we seek we will find Him & knock the Door will be opened unto us” further on in the book of James chp4:3″Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss..”
Why is it pertinent for James to tell us where we are going wrong? Telling us to ask the right and “hard things” of God? Instead of the shopping list we normally come with? Things that maybe are ‘wants’ & not ‘needs’? Things which are selfish dare I say it & not intercessory, on behalf of our brothers or sisters; hurting, dying, broken, crying? Things hard to man, impossible even but not difficult for God, not in any way impossible, to The Creator? It is because James implores the importance or prayer & the effectiveness of praying & asking, correctly. Jesus had been telling his disciples parables & He was about to begin the parable of The Unjust Judge & the Persistent Widow when he started with; “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;” Jesus Our Faithful God is the Just Judge who keeps His Word. He answers prayers. He sets the active free. He said if we ask we shall be given. His word & promises are true. But are we? Are we faithful & honest? Now we as a whole country are in need. It is time for us the body & children of Christ Jesus to seek Gods forgiveness & to ask for healing in this country. We need to be persistent & focused in our asking. To faint not even when things seem so bleak & dark. We are hold on to Jesus, weeping between the porches & The Altar of God. The United Kingdom needs deliverance l. She needs a miracle. She needs to return to God.
It is time for our Leaders of the Church to call a solemn assembly of prayer & fasting, beseeching Our Father to rescue us. There is so much trouble in the land, its palpable but “look up…” God said, “your redemption draws near..” Jesus is coming back soon do not fear. To those who can fast, we must fast and this must be declared a fast of reconciliation back unto God & not unto the vanities of man. We need to draw closer to His righteousness & His will, only then, will we see change. I watched the sorrow & grief etched in the faces of the people at Finsbury Park, Grendel Towers, London Bridge & Westminister bridge and then the astrocitoes around the world. The faces of the countless victims, distressingly caught up in the wickedness of man, taken over by the plan of the enemy but God stepped in! The comradery displayed as a result of Christ’s love is overwhelming to witness & we must know that darkness can never comprehend light. The Light of God is too powerful & will lead if in obedience we follow. The Light of Christ continues to shine in this dark world. We today speak life into every brokenness by the power & authority of The Holy Spirit. We pray in hope, walk in hope, minister in hope & in the strength of Jesus Christ & lastly, we love in hope, imploding the power of darkness, in Jesus name. It is not us, or by our strength but it is The God of Hope delivering us out of our circumstances, these circumstances
Will you join us in prayer? Will you hold up the hands of our Church & Faith Leaders as they seek to pray for forgiveness & the healing of our land in Jesus name? Only He can roll these burdens away & “a broken & contrite heart He will not despise” or turn away. He is moved by the feelings of our infirmities; by our persistence in turning to Him alone. Every single one of us have the ability to call on Jesus, we need to. The door to His heart is open now so will you call with us? Look around & survey the land, what do we see? It is time to return to Our Father in our hearts, minds & worship. If you don’t know the Father, please come today, join us & He will reveal the beauty of His heart to you, personally & intimately, you will be amazed by His overwhelming, pure love for you. Pray interceeding for the families of every victim named above. Pray for Governments to see the need for persistent prayer & fasting. We ask call for a time of solemnity. This is time for spiritual action. We are in spiritual warfare whether we accept it or not, or believe it or not. We cannot stay on pause any longer & still ask “why is this happening to our country?” We are in need of deliverance and it begins with us truthfully seeking Gods forgiveness. Jesus promise is sure, “He is able & just to forgive” The enemy will be silenced when he says “Where is their God?” for Jesus The Conquering Lion of Judah, The Almighty God, The Lord of Hosts is here, be not afraid. He will fill us always with His amazing love. This is the time to position ourselves for battle.
May God bless you all,
