Trumpet Call to the UK

In June this year, friends of CTNTP, World Prayer Centre, Birmingham, held a Trumpet Call, national prayer event.

Large banners were paraded with the Moravian Church emblem, proclaiming ‘Our Lamb has conquered – Let us follow Him’!

The compelling theme of the day was about ‘turning from’ and ‘turning to’. It is time for the UK to repent, and turn to Jesus.

 

Byrhtnoth

Last Saturday, one week before our ‘As One’ event, which is on Saturday 29th September – details here – some of our Team, went for a walk along the prom. at the estuary town of Maldon, Essex.

At the very end, there is a statue of Earl Byrhtnoth, who fought invading Vikings, at the Battle of Maldon, in 991.

Around the bottom of of the statue’s plinth, is part of Byrhtnoth’s final prayer, ‘Grant me O Lord Thy grace’.

Standing resolutely against an ungodly, pagan invasion of our Land, there Byrhtnoth died, defending our Nation.

After the battle Archbishop Sigeric of Canterbury and the aldermen of the south-western provinces advised King Æthelred to buy off the Vikings rather than continue the armed struggle. The result was a payment of 3,300 kg of silver.

 

A confirmation and a Battle Cry!

2018-09-22 15.39.02The spot upon which the statue stands has something  about it – a place which prayer seems easy and compelling!

As our Team earnestly prayed, seeking God for national revival, we noticed something on the top of Byrhtnoth’s helmet… a Lamb and a Cross! – the very same symbolism as adopted by the Moravians, several centuries later!

We felt The Holy Spirit’s stirring.

For too long, the ‘enemy’ has inhabited our Land, plundered our nation and held us captive! We have capitulated far too many times.

It is time, time for Believers in Jesus to arise and turn. 

‘Our Lamb has conquered – Let us follow Him’! 

 

“For the Lord and for the UK to be saved”

On paper, Call the Nation to Prayer has a relatively small following, but we know that The Lord is drawing the right people to be associated and involved, in what is humanly mission impossible!

gideonIn the Bible, God is usually to be seen working amongst small and committed, albeit often initially reluctant groups of people – we have often cited the story of Gideon, in the book of Judges, chapter 6 and 7, who was called by God to save the nation of Israel after they were disobedient, which had led to the Midianites oppressing them for seven long years.

Once Gideon had become convinced of his calling, he then found his army of 32,000 men, first reduced to 10,000, then down to a mere handful – just 300 men!

The story ends when at night, the 300 surrounded the Midianite Camp, broke jars to expose hidden flaming torches and blew trumpets.

Judges Chapter 7 v’s 17-18: “Watch me,” he [Gideon] told them. “Follow my lead. When I get to the edge of the camp, do exactly as I do. When I and all who are with me blow our trumpets, then from all around the camp blow yours and shout, ‘For the Lord and for Gideon.’”

As the Israelites carried out their instructions, the Midianites turned, killed each other and fled. Israel pursued, in victory over overwhelming odds!

It is now six days until ‘As One’, a relatively small event – we initially pictured something much larger, but God has dictated otherwise – which, far beyond any human ability to do so, and against all odds, will be a bold declaration for nationwide revival!

For for the Lord, and for the United Kingdom to be saved! Are you a Gideon?!

There is still time to join us on Saturday 29th September – full details, click here.

Just 9 days to go until ‘As One’

Today, we had these scriptures and a wonderful prophetic and declarative prayer sent to us about 29th September by a lady in the USA who the Lord has previously led to pray for the UK.
. 
Do join her in her prayer as the day approaches.
.
Isaiah 49:8 Thus saith the LORD, “In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
 
Luke 19:9-10 And Jesus said unto him, “This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
 
2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
.
Oh, Father as your word pointed us to the day of salvation, promised, prophesied, and yes you have fulfilled the time appointed, you have made salvation available to the world through your Son who has come to seek and to save that which is lost.
.
Again, and again your grace and mercy has been poured out as waves of revival has swept the nations in the past. Now Oh Lord of the harvest, once again we are calling upon you for an outpouring of grace, truth, and mercy upon the UK.
.
The men of God have spoken of a day of great revival, we come in agreement with this word and shout “Yes Oh, Lord, yes, this is a Day for Salvation”. We come together praying, speaking and proclaiming your word Oh, Lamb of God, precious Jesus, let this outpouring begin.
.
Many are gathering on the 29th, Holy Spirit come in your power, let revival and restoration proceed as spoken in your word. We declare this is the “day of Salvation”.
.
Thank you, Jesus, Amen

As One A4 portraitAfter many months of journeying with The Lord, we are nearly there! In just twelve days time, we shall stand in the heart of the United Kingdom, pray and prophetically declare that it is the time for a nationwide revival!

Past prophecies of national revival

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.”

Twenty years later, pastor Jean Darnall had a vision, a national move of God; small ‘fires’ lighting across the UK representing countless people praying. She then saw ‘lightning strikes’ and ‘rivers of fire’, signifying renewal and revival, flowing across the nation and out to continental Europe.

The UK Church has spoken about these prophecies for years and as we have sought God for ‘As One’, we believe it is now the right time in our nation for their release.

11.00 am, old Cathedral ruins Coventry – humble ourselves and pray

2017-11-08 09.02.30This is a significant place and from it we will symbolically gather up the spirit of unity, prayer, peace and reconciliation which this ancient City carries.

As we stand in that place, representing many different strands of The Church across our Land, in preparation for the fulfilment of the revival prophecies that we will seek and declare this afternoon, we will respond to the words of 2 Chronicles 7:14:

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

2.30 pm, Meriden – ‘release’, from the very heart of England

The-Wayside-Cross-on-The-Green-in-MeridenFor 500 years, Meriden has traditionally been the centre of England. We sensed its significance, and later discovered that in the 1990’s a prayer ministry was established here, after The Lord had indicated that from the heart of the nation, revival would ‘ripple outwards nationally and internationally’.

Together, ‘As One’, in the reconciliation we will have gathered in the morning, it will be time to declare ‘release’. We are led to join two staffs, symbolically representing the coming together of ‘The Spirit and ‘The Word’, and as we do so, we believe The Holy Spirit will send a mighty ripple of revival across, then outward from our Land.

 

Hear about ‘As One’ – at The Mount – Praise, Prayer, Worship – Coventry Cathedral, 6pm Sunday 9th Sept.

The MountWe are pleased to be able to let you know of a new monthly meeting, of praise, worship and prayer, for all Christians, from any denomination or tradition, at Coventry Cathedral.

We know that the aims of this gathering are in line with those of CTNTP, to see unity and revival in the church and for the life changing gospel message of Jesus Christ to reach out to our nation.

During the meeting, CTNTP Team member, Jo Ognjanovic, has been invited to speak about ‘As One’ – if you are nearby, do go along and hear more about our vision.

A Vision – thrusting down a staff – causing a ripple!

As One A4 portraitIt is less than four weeks to go until our ‘As One’ gatherings in the Heart of the Nation.

Do let us know if you can come, by signing up  – click here.

Ripples! They keep coming to us! We have long seen that ‘As One’ will create have an effect way beyond the events on the day.

We wrote about it last on 14th August – click here for the full Blog Post, but one part reads:

From the beginning, we have envisaged an ‘impact’, with a ‘ripple’ pulsing out, from the very centre of the UK, across our Land and beyond. We are creating an opportunity for that to happen – we are reminded as to what happened on the day of Pentecost, when a small number of committed followers of Jesus gathered in prayer and cried out to Heaven, having no idea of the impact that was to shortly result as The Holy Spirit fell.

 

CONFIRMATION! A Staff and a Ripple!

ripplesWe love it when God sends confirmations – and there have been many on our journey – the latest received yesterday, 2nd September from a lady who we did not know, but who has previously been involved in prayer for our nation.

She wrote:

‘I only heard about this movement on Friday morning in the most unexpected way but as someone who has been involved in the past in praying for our nation I can tell you that it has witnessed with my spirit and I’m feeling very stirred and excited… 

…I was told about the call to pray by a lady whose story linking her to this same call was amazing and clearly God led.  What I didn’t tell her was that as she spoke I had an instant vision which I cannot profess to fully understand but which feels in some way significant: 

I saw myself standing in the middle of a field with what looked like a long staff of some kind in my hand.  I raised it and thrust it downwards as though I were planting it in the ground.  There was a great sound or vibration (very difficult to describe) and I saw ripples go out from the spot.

At the time, this friend was talking about Meriden, to which she has an uncanny connection, and I had never heard about the centre of England…’

 

And that’s exactly what we had already seen!

shepherds crooksOn the 29th September, in a field, in Meriden, we will be joining two Shepherds Crooks – staffs – to represent the Spirit and the Word coming together (read more – click here) and already we see this as a ‘ground zero’ moment – a ripple for ‘revival’ fanning out to the entire UK and beyond.

You really do need to be there!

 

 

 

 

The Wall – The Architects Visit the Land

The Wall with wording

We’ve just received an update from The Wall of Answered Prayer about this exciting project, which will be situated in a visible location the heart of our nation in the West Midlands. They write:

We were thrilled that the architectural teams behind our five shortlisted designs visited the land in August. This was their first exposure to the land, and their initial impressions were overwhelmingly positive. They began to consider how to fit their designs to the practicalities of the site and heard more of the vision behind the project as they met with our team. This is a significant step forward, the architects updated designs will be judged leading to a land and design reveal in late Spring 2019.

Things are really starting to heat up, our profile is increasing across Christian and architectural media and news about the project is spreading. This is a critical season for the project as we continue to diligently press in to God’s calling and plough the ground until He takes us to the next season, which we believe will be incredibly fruitful. We are so excited that you are with us on this journey in the early stages, and hope that you are encouraged by the progress we are making.
