Can a Nation Be Changed in a Day? – National Day of Prayer – Sun 9 Dec.

ndop 081218We are excited to hear of so many at the present time organising and being involved in times of prayer for our Nation.

Today, we received an email from Catch the Fire, a church in Bournemouth on the south coast, who are challenged by The Lord to call a National Day of Prayer for Government on Sunday 9th December 2018. 

The day is inspired by Isaiah 66:8 and calls for Believers to use their God given authority to call in Divine order to the UK:

“Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labour than she gives birth to her children.” 

The Senior Leader at the Church said in her email to CTNTP:

‘I wondered who I could influence to organise [a National day of Prayer]… I thought of the biggest names I know in ministry and if I could get them to do it. Then I figured as I had the vision for it I better do it and just release it on Facebook and see what happens.’

Already several thousand people have engaged through their Facebook Page (click here). God surely wants ‘grassroots’ believers to take up the call to praying for the UK – as well as ‘big’ prayer organisations and well known leaders.

The National Day of Prayer, on Sunday 9th December, can be taken up wherever you are, in your own City, Town, Village.

Full details are on the Church’s website:

Over the last months, CTNTP have heard much from many sources comparing the present situation to historic wartime calls to prayer – check out some we have published on the pages under the Prophecies and Insights tab.

Many are seeing that we are in a fierce battle right now!

Catch the Fire Bournemouth’s website description of the Day of Prayer includes:


Recently we celebrated 100 years of the Royal Air Force, the brave men and women of whom Winston Churchill famously said:

“Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many, to so few”

Right now the Battle for Britain is in the air. In the airwaves and in the prayers of the believers.

We have an amazing history of nation changing prayer in this country thanks to national days of prayer during the second world war and people like Rees Howells, whose prayers changed the direction of The Battle of Britain.

As Believers around the UK on Sunday 9th December join together in prayer, The Lord will, like Gideon’s Army, surely multiply the effect. We will see Victory, and the Name of Jesus Christ lifted up across our Land.!
