Have our eyes glazed over? Have we stuck fingers in both our ears? Have we all become like lemmings heading for the cliff edge?!
The COP26 Global Climate Summit starts today… for HEAVEN’S sake, what on EARTH are we, the Christian Church, God’s Ekklesia, doing about it all?!
The World meets, in what seems to have become some frenzied, activist and media fuelled, last ditch attempt for doomed humanity, by our own efforts, to save our planet from inevitable, imminent, total and utter destruction!
I came across the below short video this morning, based on Romans 8:22.
‘To this day we are aware of the universal agony and groaning of creation, as if it were in the contractions of labour for childbirth’. (TPT).
The Bible makes it clear that all we see will not simply end, but be re-birthed, re-created, back to God’s original and perfect blueprint. Mankind and our planet in beautiful harmony. A ‘Garden of Eden’, where we will once again walk in the cool of the day with our Creator.
Yet, God’s plan for this restoration does not come by somehow pulling OURSELVES up by our own boot straps! That is impossible. But it is rather by accepting His offer of reconciliation and salvation, through a personal relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ.
John 3:16: For here is the way God loved the world—he gave his only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life. (TPT).
So don’t be fearful, do not panic, know the certainty of your salvation and place in the new heaven and earth that the Bible promises. And pray and be bold to tell all around you, the very Good News of re-birth, not of Global destruction.

We are our own worst enemies basically. Descending on Glasgow = more of the same – as you rightly point out!
Thank you and my full apologies for not letting you know of the prayer zoom meeting on Saturday evening with YWAM, WPC and Pray for Scotland. The week has been one that has been full on with sleep being a complete luxury at times.
I have been journeying with their daily prayer blogs since 11th Oct and can let you know that there is a canopy of prayer and praise over Glasgow and there will be evangelists on the streets with some safe, creative spaces made to draw attention to the Hope our Lord gives.
The little booklet attached is what I put together for our own congregation for last week’s Bible Sunday…..do feel free to share it. Much of the inspiration has come from the 3 groups mentioned combining resources. (It flows as pages 8 & 1; 6 & 3, 4 & 5, 2 & 7 if the order is important to you)
YWAM have also put this wonderful virtual prayer walk together and by giving the page reference you’ll see they are rooted in 2 Chon 7 v 14 but I agree a lot of the worldly church is not listening yet to what the Lord is saying…

Called Conference of Parties 26 (COP26) it will be one of the largest international events ever hosted by the UK, with up to 30,000 [ ] ywam.org
Actually Sat night’s prayer was powerful. The day was billed as one of humility, a step back before repentance as until God convicts us of our sins we cannot properly confess them to Him. I found myself on a good learning curve!
Hope this helps & thank you for posting this blog from the Wee Flea
Shalom, love & prayer Elaine
