Let’s all Strike the Ground!
It is sometimes too easy to simply take a local view of what God wants to do, but through prayer, we are equally able to influence our Nation.
The following is a Message just received today, 18th January, from Adele Richards, Senior Leader, Catch the Fire Bournemouth, who promoted a Day of Prayer on 9th December 2108. A number of Chelmsford Christians took part in this. How about this time too?
‘Yesterday morning I received some strategy from the Lord during my prayer time.
Dr Sharon Stone prophesied in her word for the year that in 2019 there would be more National Days of Prayer and I was happy to see that David Hathaway had organised one for Saturday 26 January, as an event in Wembley with Lou Engle, Betty King, James Aladiran and others leading the prayer. But yesterday I realised that we (as NDOP) were supposed to be adding our voice to this and calling the whole nation to pray again on the date set by David Hathaway.
The strategy is simply to encourage people to get along to Wembley Arena to pray together if they can, but if they can’t to pray and fast where they are…in homes, churches, prayer rooms…whatever they can organise at late notice.
So here I am again, sounding the trumpet to echo David Hathaway’s call to prayer. The verse I got was 2 Kings 13.18 where Elisha tells the King to strike the ground with the arrows. Had the king struck the ground enough times, Israel’s enemies would have been completely defeated.
I believe we need to unite again across the country in another national day of prayer on the 26th and in this way we strike the ground again and prepare the land for what God wants to do in Britain.
I appreciate this doesn’t leave you as a leader much time to communicate to your people or organise a prayer meeting…but perhaps you have prayer warriors in your church that could gather people in their home, or open up your church on that day.
Perhaps you have time to email the Facebook page to your people, here’s the link:
I’ve recorded a short video explaining why it’s so important that we all join in on the 26th wherever we are, and there’s a link to buy tickets for those who can get to Wembley.’
Thank you so much!
