A Developing Vision
CTNTP is for all who will pray for the Nation and for all who will call others to pray. It is not an organization as such, but simply a Directive, a sharing and declaring of what we believe the Lord by His Spirit has made clear, to take this message to all who will listen, to every town and to every city – to the church and to the unchurched.
CTNTP is very much part of something much bigger that God is doing in the UK and we fully recognise there are many other groups and organisations here who carry and are moving with a similar vision.
We feel that in responding to Peter Hill’s initial vision from God, Call the Nation to Prayer is likely to have a number of specific roles. You can read some of Peter first thoughts on these after his second visit to England October 2016 here.
An update Autumn 2017
In September 2017, Peter and David believe God has given some further guidance; that CTNTP is to include ‘Walk The Nation In Prayer’ and ‘Coming Together As One!’ A Three Fold Cord.
So it looks like:
John 17, where Jesus prayed that we may be one so that the world would believe (How powerful is that?!), has been central for a long time now in our thinking and in our prayers (as well as in the minds and hearts of so many throughout the nation) and we believe the time is now to take the next step!
Peter Hill is coming over to the UK in early November 2017 and he and David Gilbey will be meeting various leaders and others to explore this latest direction.
Two other main emphasis for CTNTP
- To seek to serve, encourage and bless what is already happening.
- To join together with the other calls for prayer, to help link up the many centres of prayer particularly connecting where little or no connection exists at present.
There are currently many excellent prayer movements in the UK, or, as Ian Cole at the World Prayer Centre in Birmingham said, “We see that what is happening in the nation is no longer a number of prayer movements, but a movement of prayer sweeping the nation.”
We couldn’t agree more, as the Lord we believe clearly gave this word to ‘Call The Nation To Prayer’, He alone knows the full reason why!
