The Queen spoke of ripples going out

Queen and Billy Graham
Billy Graham with the Queen in 1989

When CTNTP held ‘As One’ in September this year, we strongly believed that one of the key purposes of what we were doing, was to send a ‘ripple’ out to the nation for the gospel of Jesus Christ and for revival!

Read details of ‘As One with reference to the ‘ripple’ – click here.

We have also felt strongly, even more so recently, that God is reconnecting the past Christian Heritage of this nation to what He is now orchestrating. Christians are again rediscovering the faith of former years to pray with increasing boldness for The Kingdom  of God, the power of The Holy Spirit to come and dramatically change our land from where we have currently found ourselves.

It was therefore most interesting to come across an article, published about one year ago, by The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, entitled, Billy Graham Reflects on His Friendship with Queen Elizabeth II.

Here are two quotes from it and you can read the whole article here: billygraham.org/story/billy-graham-and-the-queen

…“No one in Britain has been more cordial toward us than Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” Billy Graham wrote in his autobiography, Just As I Am. “Almost every occasion I have been with her has been in a warm, informal setting, such as a luncheon or dinner, either alone or with a few family members or other close friends.”…

Ripple on water…”On one occasion when I was in Great Britain, the Queen was preparing her annual Christmas address to be broadcast on television around the world. To illustrate a point, she wanted to toss a stone into a pond to show how the ripples went out farther and farther. She asked me to come and listen to her practice the speech by the pond and give my impressions, which I did.”…

Each time we pray or speak out for Jesus Christ, another ripple is released. Let’s keep ‘tossing our stones in the pond’.
