.John 17: 20-21 – Jesus Prays for All Believers
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me…”
In 1947, evangelist Smith Wigglesworth prophesied, when those of ‘the Word’ and those of ‘the Spirit’ come together: “there will be the biggest move of the Holy Spirit that the nations, and indeed, the world have ever seen. It will mark the beginning of a revival that will eclipse anything that has been witnessed within these shores…”
We believe that it is time!
We invite you to join with us, ‘As One’, as we call forth the fresh season of unity, oneness and Revival, so encapsulated in the prophetic words of Smith Wigglesworth and Jean Darnall.
This is going to be an exciting gathering, releasing and increasing a spiritual shift from the heart of the Nation. This change is seen in the physical move from the historical ruins of the old Cathedral, Coventry, to the nearby fields of Meriden, for over 500 years known as the traditional centre of England.
God has been calling many groups in our nation to pray and to work together in new ways, but all are agreed, this is the time for the ‘more’ these prophetic words refer to.
The day itself is in two parts:
A time to celebrate and let go: As we meet in the ruins of the old Cathedral we will have opportunity to look back and celebrate all God has done through His people in the past years, through the streams, the denominations and all the diversity of His people. In that atmosphere of peace, reconciliation and unity that Coventry is known for around the world, we will also have opportunity to let go of past differences and divisions, coming together afresh.
In the afternoon, we will gather again, in the Sports Ground in Meriden for a time of worship, prayer and declaration. It will be a time to release that new ‘oneness’ and all it represents from the Heart of the Nation as a ‘ripple’ out across the Nation: This will be centred around the prophetic act of joining two staffs together into one, representing a fresh level of the Word and Spirit coming together
