KEEP PRAYING AND BLESS

70 days of Decree and Blessing during the Torch Relay through the British Isles & Ireland

Welcome to 70 days of Prayer and Blessing for the British Isles and Ireland


We offer you these prayers, blessings and declarations as a possible day-by-day guide to aid you in praying as the Olympic Flame travels across the British Isles and Ireland. Some might like to fast as you pray during the next 70 days and we would encourage you to seek the Lord in this and be guided by Him. The number 70 is symbolic of restoration, and means ‘prior to increase’.

This is a strategic time for our nation as we host the 30th Olympiad and celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty our Queen.

Brian Mills (Director of InterPrayer International Partnership) prophesied in 2005: “So that, when hundreds of thousands of athletes, media, supporters and organisers come to Britain for the Olympics in 2012, we (that is we as God’s people) will be ready to welcome them into the presence of God.    Just think, the nations will be coming to us. To prepare the way for the church to welcome them with love, grace, charm, politeness, and with a positive message born out of God’s love in our hearts.” (The full prophecy is available on the Prayer Forum website (http://www.prayerforum.org/resources/prophecy/).

The Olympic Games began in 776 BC but their origins go back further still. The Games were brought about to honour the Greek god Zeus. This god was referred to as Baal in the Bible. The Opening Ceremony hymn is dedicated to Zeus. The Olympic torch was re-introduced to the Games by Hitler in 1936. It comes from the cave of Dikteon in Greece and will arrive in this country on 18 May. It will then be taken throughout the land, stopping overnight in 70 cities to arrive in London on 27 July. The torch was originally lit to Zeus, and even today there are many pagan influences over these Games.

However, Jesus is far greater, and we believe that as we exalt Him over our Nation and claim the torch to represent the Light of Christ going through our land, we can turn this to something positive for the Kingdom of God.

“What the enemy means for harm God can turn to good.” (Genesis 50:20)
God has spoken to a number of people about this unique 70 day season and all are seeking to work together through the More than Gold 70 day cascade of prayer and praise “Shine as the Flame Travels”. On 18 May, 7:141 hosts an open air prayer event in Plymouth and will continue to do so each night before the Flame arrives in the 70 locations. On 19 May the Praise Bus will start its journey from Land’s End around Great Britain, two hours ahead of the Olympic Flame, and the More Than Gold 70 Day Prayer Relay begins. This will travel between all 70 towns and cities listed, with the prayer baton, containing prayers and scriptures, being handed over in each place around midday. The National Society of Bellringers has been asked if bells can be rung along the route. For details of resources, times & places, go to: www.morethangold.org.uk; 7:14 facebook page; www.thejourneyfromescalls.co.uk (Praise Bus); www.worldprayer.org.uk

On 27 July at 8am church bells are to be rung across our nation on the day the Games start. The last time this happened was exactly 70 years ago to the day, when Churchill declared, "Before Alamein we never had a victory, after Alamein we never had a defeat." Let us pray that this will now happen in the spiritual realm, and that it will herald in a time of victory for the Church.

An initiative for ‘flashmob’ public prayer gatherings based on 2 Chronicles 7:14


We must never underestimate the synergy of the power of the prayer of agreement (Matthew 18:18). Over these 70 days we come together across the British Isles with one heart and one voice. As we decree God’s Name and bless His people, and pray the Lord’s Prayer in unity, we believe we will see His Kingdom come.

The prayers in this guide are based on the Name of God, the great ‘I AM’, and when we honour God’s name, He will reveal His glory. Each day we will declare a Name and aspect of our God, to make decrees and to bless.

Job 22:28 (KJV) tells us “Thou shalt also decree a thing and it shall be established.” We are called to make heavenly decrees, decrees that will bring about divine justice. As with Jeremiah, our anointed words will uproot the forces of darkness and plant kingdom revelation. (Jeremiah 1:10)

We speak blessings because the Bible says that one of the roles of the priests (Levites) was to speak (not pray) blessings over the people. We have become a kingdom of priests to our God and should take this privilege seriously.

During this time of heightened security, we would ask you to pray protection daily over the British Isles and Ireland.

 

How to Use this Guide
As you work through these daily prayers we encourage you to say the Prayer of Blessing over each city, then speak the decree using the Name of God and the scripture and declaration, then speak the blessings, starting with the Aaronic Blesing. At noon we suggest praying the Lord’s Prayer, to link in with the incentive initiated by Jonathan Oloyede (London Director of Global Day of Prayer) for all Christians to pray in unison this powerful and uniting prayer that God’s Kingdom may come and His will be done in our land. Finally pray the Prayer of Protection over our nation.

Daily Prayers:
A Prayer of Blessing to be prayed over each city each day

We bless you that the Father’s compassion might fall upon your people. We bless your poor that they might be lifted up.

The Lord bless you and keep you, The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace. So they will put My Name on the Israelites, and I will bless them. (Numbers 6:24-27)

Prayer of Protection
Almighty Father, we come to You in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, and in that mighty Name we break the power of every strategy and assignment sent against the British Isles and Ireland. We pray the mighty covering of the Living Blood of Jesus Christ over our villages, towns and cities, over our coastlands, seaports and airports. We ask that You release the angelic host to protect us from every attack and lift each citizen above every circumstance and crisis. We affirm the finished work of Christ over all demonic forces and decree that no weapon formed against the plans and purposes for the British Isles and Ireland will prosper, and we decree that no longer will violence be heard in our land, or destruction within our borders. We bless the atmosphere to be charged with peace and order.    Amen.

In Jesus’ wonderful Name.    Amen

Blow the Trumpets! (Over Wales)

 Blow the Trumpets!


God loves trumpets! A few years ago I heard this proclamation in a sermon from Colin Urquhart.

I happen to believe it. He challenged his people to make trumpets and also gave clear instructions when and how they were to be blown. They are very important instruments, which we regularly encounter throughout the whole of the Holy Bible, starting from Numbers and ending in the book of Revelations, where the angels will blow the trumpets to herald different judgments.

Jesus spoke over two thousand years ago that disasters, shakings and catastrophes would come to such a degree that no-one could possibly imagine. Of course, there have always been wars and terrible natural catastrophes. But never in such enormous dimensions; without a pause in between, which also cover such great areas or even the whole world itself. And everything is affected. The sky, (ash clouds from Iceland), the earth, (earthquake in Haiti), the sea (oil pollution of the coastline of USA in the Gulf of Mexico).


Where is God in all this?

What is He doing?


He is giving instructions and people who hear him and are obedient are carrying them out. So it is with the blowing of trumpets. God, Himself, has spoken. instructed and authorised. The (current) condition of the world, the people and above all His church does not leave Him cold. His word to us in Abraham Ministries is:

Make two trumpets of hammered silver, and use them for calling the community together and for having the camps set out..“ (Num. 10: 2 NIV)


A few years ago, a brother in the Lord gave me two trumpets. He told me that the time would come when I must blow them. Two years ago, at the end of the European Prayer Meeting/Conference one of the leaders declared that now is the time to blow the trumpets in every European country! My heart was deeply touched and shaken. However, it needed a further two years before God made it clear to me in a time of prayer and fasting that the above verse was for me personally. We have received the assignment to go into every country in Europe and to blow the trumpets there.


What is the reason for this?


It is a wake-up call!

Through the blowing of the trumpets the church should be awakened, to break out of her slumber and enter into her calling.

What is the vocation or mission of the church?

The first, most important and deepest calling is:

You should love the Lord, your God, with all your heart ............“


God is calling us:

Repent and come back to Me!“

Perhaps we are thinking:
„Yes, we do love You , we are with You“

But here we are talking about God’s standards, not those which we have made up for ourselves. He wants to bring us back to our first, passionate burning love. Back to the love which burns up everything else: fear, doubt, jealousy, egocentricity.

Back to where this love conquers everything else; surrender victory over sin, ability to love (my Redeemer, my brothers and sisters, the people and even my enemies).


A further aspect of this calling is:

Turn back to God’s word!“

He is the word. We cannot separate Him from His word. We cannot claim to love Him and at the same time be unheeding to His word. When we really want and desire Him, so must we also want and desire and crave after His word. It is our daily bread,, our guidance and shows is Him as He really is!


A third aspect of our calling is:

that we become conscious of our roots, and not only accept them, but also love and value them with a grateful attitude. Let us not forget that we are simply the engrafted branch. The Jews – Israel, on the other hand, the olive tree-

Therefore, it is my opinion that the most important thing for God, at the moment, is His call to the church to return to its original calling.. It is an inward call, a departure from present ways of doing things, a return to Him..


Jesus asked Peter three times:

Do you love Me?“

That sounds so easy and simple, but seemingly shows God’s deepest pain. His church is very often disengaged from Him. Over and over again it does its own thing or remains in its own self-sufficiency and satisfaction behind protective walls. Our decampment towards the outside world must occur from the inside, from our passionate love relationship to Him.


It is time to seek God as never before.

While the world is being tainted more and more through sin, corruption and depravity

will increase on a huge scale ( a picture of that is the ashes from Iceland or the uncontrollable flow of oil off America’s coastline), God is, on the other hand, in the process of cleaning and sanctifying His bride church, by calling it back to an intimate love relationship.

When you go into battle in your own land against an enemy who is oppressing you, sound a blast on the trumpets. Then you will be remembered by the Lord your God and rescued from your enemies. „ (Num. 10: 9 NIV)

It is war and none of us can withdraw or remain neutral. And in wartime absolute obedience to the commands of the military leader is paramount. Then it is no longer a matter of what I, my church or my ministry want, but what is important for Jesus and His Kingdom.


Switzerland is facing difficulties and hardships and is being hard-pushed and the current condition of the church does not leave us with much margin to counter it. I have heard many times from God His call through„Police-,. Ambulance- and Fire sirens together with the word „Emergency or Emergency situation!“ We must become aware of the true nature of the plight we are in. Let us wake up in this regard! Retrieval, salvation is here. The Deliverer has come, is calling us to Himself to straighten up, heal, restore, and sanctify. So that we, in turn, can once more be sent forth. (to do the work of the ministry).


The four meetings this year in Switzerland to which we are inviting people to attend (in Basel, Davos, Bellinzona and Geneva) are to be understood in this context..


They are embedded in the „Blow the trumpets in Europe“initiative. Additionally for „the special case “Switzerland it is important that we recognise:


We as the church of Jesus Christ are called to be watchmen for Israel and Europe!

Summary of the ‘Trumpet Ministry’ from Werner Woiwode, Abraham Ministries

www.verein-abraham.ch (select English option)

 


 

BLOWING THE TRUMPETS OVER WALES
CALL TO THE CHURCH TO GATHER AND PRAY


A Christian ministry based in Switzerland has been travelling around Europe for several years blowing two silver trumpets in each nation as a call to prayer and praise to the Christians in that nation. The ministry is based on the scriptures found in Numbers 10. Abraham Ministries is an active member of a network of internationally-related Ministries working together for the reconciliation of churches, denominations and nations. Their foundation is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and they operate through a ministry of reconciliation, prayer and practical help.

Werner and Regula Woiwode are the Directors of Abraham Ministries and are visiting from the 21st to 29th June to blow the trumpets in each part of the UK and Ireland. We have been contacted by them to host their time in Wales and they will be doing this here on the 24th June in Haverfordwest and Milford Haven before travelling on to Ireland. The arrangements are as follows:

Saturday 23rd June: 7.30 to 8.30pm. There will be a short meeting together Saturday evening at ‘Arranmore’, New Road to share their vision and objectives.


Sunday 24th June: 10am - gather at Haverfordwest Castle grounds. Parking is permissible in the grounds that day or use local car parks. Blow trumpets and pray, finish by 10-30am.

Sunday 24th June: 4pm – gather at the Rath, Milford Haven at the first bandstand. Parking permissible along the road. Blow shofars and pray, finish around 4-30pm.

If you have a burden to pray for Wales and Great Britain and to see God move in and through his church then you are warmly invited to participate in this act of obedience to the word that this Ministry has received to take this call to all the nations in Europe. Further details of Abraham Ministries can be found on www.verein-abraham.ch (selecting the English version).

These are significant days for the United Kingdom what with the Queen’s Jubilee and the Olympics and with a great deal of prayer arising to the Lord. Only recently the Praise Bus and Olympic Torch passed through Haverfordwest and many churches are participating in a 70day prayer initiative covering the Torch route. We are hearing now of other places in the UK where this word about ‘blowing the Trumpets’ has come strongly with one group doing it during the Queen’s Jubilee weekend. This is a ‘wake-up’ call to believers to arise in the power of the Holy Spirit and proclaim the Kingdom of God in our land. Let’s respond with faith and joy and usher in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ with great praise and worship! Silver trumpets were blown in times of battle and in times of feasting – we have the privilege of participating in both aspects because of the victory of the Lord Jesus on the Cross. If you have a shofar please feel free to bring it with you, there will be an opportunity to participate.

If you require further information please contact:

Together for the Nation at the Westminster

 

Together for the Nation at the Westminster

I was invited to attend a prayer gathering in Westminster on 12th June. We were about 70 people from different parts of the UK. We spent an hour listening to God and nearly everyone shared. Interestingly God was speaking to us pretty similar things about the UK although we are from very different backgrounds. (This is what I received from the Lord.)

“You will see the reverse side of a tapestry; a lot of mess, but I will show my beauty and power through it. You need to understand by faith but not by sight, otherwise you will not stand but will be in despair. I want you to understand by faith what I am doing in order to fulfil my eternal purpose in this land.

I have already started my new journey in the UK. Join with me in this journey by faith, not by sight. I have destined the United Kingdom, even before the creation of the world. I will use you again mightily in history; I will redeem you, restore you and release you. REPENT and STAND with ME by FAITH. Without faith, you will lose your ground. Don't be distracted by the transitory things. Yet hold fast my eternal purpose and my promises. My love never fails and it completes everything.

Don't be hasty when you are near to Jerusalem like the Wise Men (after Jesus was born). If you think you are wise, you'd better be foolish. Still you need to move at night, not in day light with your own sight. The Wise Men stopped looking at the star and travelled by day to Jerusalem, using their own understanding. If you move with your own sight, many innocent generations might be killed because of you. (Don't listen to the enemy's lies.) Move at night by faith. In the darkness you will see the light. Don't move by sight but by faith in the darkness. THE DARKNESS IS COMING but don't be afraid of it. It will help to show my light.”

This former mining village in the Garw Valley witnessed remarkable scenes of revival when Evan Roberts visited it from the 16th to the 18th November 1904.

The theme of the day will be “Prepare the Way of the Lord” (Mt 3:3) and will be hosted by David & Ann Rhodes of “Garw Valley Links” fellowship – www.garwvalleylinks.org.uk – who have the keys to the chapel.

After lunch, at 2pm, we will drive up to the top of the Garw (Blaengarw) in order to pray over the valley, Bridgend and beyond. (Mathew 6:10, Psalm 24:1).

Further details and directions to the chapel will be sent out nearer the time. A poster is attached which you may like to use in your church or fellowship.

Blessings in Christ Jesus.
