Crystal Clear – your invite to an online Conference 25 & 26 Sept with Passion for the Nation

Passion for the Nation invites you to join them for their first ever Online conference!
.

We believe God has a unique call on our land that is significant, but it is also a time of enormous change, which heralds a new era. Jesus, said pray ‘Kingdom Come’, ‘Seek first the Kingdom of God’ but what does that mean within today’s world? Is there a plan?

We want to envision and equip you through this conference to be part of the Ekklesia which God is raising up.

We will explore the vision of what God wants to do in our nation as we seek to pioneer this Kingdom. We will seek to discover God’s heart for our nation and do our part in revealing and equipping you for the battle ground. Our battle is great because God has a calling on us and on our nation. God is calling out new movements in our day, movements of prayer and movements of His people as He also calls us to embrace our places of influence across society. We want you to go out from this conference with a deeper understanding of what is God’s Perspective, armed with the tools to help you play your part.

Worship on the Streets – Stories from the Streets August 2020

Worship on the streets

worshiponthestreets.co.uk

Have you come across Worship on the Streets before? What an amazing ministry of taking God’s presence and love – the Sound of Heaven – to our streets.

Here is a most encouraging extract from their latest newsletter, by leader, Aaron Shah:

With restrictions having lifted slightly last month, I’m really pleased to say that I have been able to go back out on to the streets to worship. We have gone back to North Shields a few times as well as returned to Northumberland where we continue to partner with some of the local churches there. As well as having some powerful times of worship where God’s presence and peace were clearly tangible, we have been so encouraged to see a massive increase in people taking away gospels each time. In fact on two occasions, we ran out of gospels to give away which has never happened before.

Maybe it’s time for you to take worship to the streets of your City or town?

Intimercy – Could you support production of this new Worship Album?

Awakening the coastlands album

Rob Parker, is a gifted and prophetic worship leader and songwriter. Rob has also been part of the CTNTP Team and led the worship at our 2018 ‘As One’ meetings in the heart of England.

Prior to that. in 2017 Rob produced an amazing album, Awakening the Coastlands. One track in particular, Awake you who sleep, so encapsulates the CTNTP vision and Rob graciously allowed us to make it available free on our website:

(Go to the bottom of our website Homepage, https://ctntp.uk, if you are viewing this on an email and the link above to the music track does not work).

Your help requested – Rob’s new Album – Intimercy

We have recently received this request from Rob and encourage you to respond as The Lord might lead:

IntiMercyRecently I felt led to write and record a new album to be called “Intimercy”. No, it’s not spelt wrong, it’s a play on the word’s intimacy and mercy. The theme is that we are drawn into intimacy with the Lord through his mercy and it’s His mercy that sends us out to bring hope a fallen world.

However, due to the reduction in ministerial offerings and CD sales I have received due to the pandemic, financing and thus finishing the album has become increasingly difficult,

So, I am wondering whether you would consider either pre-ordering a CD or sponsoring an amount towards the completion of the album?

If you would like to pre-order 1 or more CD’s go to:  

https://www.robparkerministries.com/product/intimercy/

If you would like to sponsor an amount (and receive a free CD) go to:

https://www.give.net/20145531

Could I also ask that you pray for the Album and that it will carry the anointing of the Lord and will accomplish all the He has for it.

I pray every blessing for you and as I do I am constantly reminded of 2 Corinthians 9:10: he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.”.

Rob

 

 

Network for Revival: Pleading the Promises

We are pleased to reproduce the latest Newsletter of Rev Tony Higton’s, Network for Revival. 

Please go to networkforrevival.co.uk for further details or contact Tony at email: tony@higton.info

Prepare

Network for Revival July 2020

We have looked at four motives for prayer for revival:

Pleading the love of God: He loves his church and wants to bless it. He loves unbelievers and doesn’t want any to be lost. See http://networkforrevival.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Prepare-17-February-2020-1.pdf

Pleading the name of God: The name of God is being gravely dishonoured by the failings of the church and the godlessness of society. See http://networkforrevival.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Prepare-18-March-2020.pdf

Pleading the Kingdom of God. God’s Kingdom is hindered by a failing church and hastened by prayer and preparation for revival. See https://networkforrevival.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Prepare-19-May-2020.pdf

Pleading the Blood of Christ: The shed blood of Jesus is the foundation for our prayers and we are meant to keep it in mind cf. Communion. See https://networkforrevival.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Prepare-20-June-2020.pdf

In this issue we look at the 5th motive for prayer for revival

Praying for Revival: Pleading the Promises

By nature, I take a careful, critical approach to important issues. I seek good reasons for believing something and want to avoid all naivety and jumping to conclusions. That attitude clearly has value but it also has dangers. It is easy to lapse into rationalism and lack of faith. And I’ve done that in the past. One example is to take a rationalistic approach to God answering prayers. Many of us believe God answers some prayers but he doesn’t answer others. So he might not answer my current prayer. That sounds so reasonable. We can easily tag on the end of our prayers “if it be Your will” which sounds humble but actually is often a spiritual get-out clause which really means “If this prayer isn’t answered, don’t blame me, it’s God’s responsibility.”

Of course, the New Testament does teach that there are conditions to prayer being answered and I’ll list them below. But they are conditions we can fulfil, by his grace.

Yes, I’m aware of the “Name it and claim it” groups who sometimes “claim” (or demand) inappropriate things from God in prayer, such as personal riches. But such extremism must not put us off biblical prayer in faith.

The fact is that the New Testament teaches that the Lord promises to answer prayer. Here are the relevant promises:

  • “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer” (Mt 21:22).
  • “I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you receive it and it will be yours” (Mk 11:24).
  • “I say to you: ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened” (Mt 7:7).
  • “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven” (Mt 18:19).
  • “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it” (Jn 14:14).
  • “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you” (Jn 15:7).
  • “If our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him” (1 Jn 3:21-22).

Note the conditions:

  • Praying in faith (Mt 21:22; Mk 11:24) – Trusting the Lord and believing his promises.
  • Persisting in prayer (Mt 7:7 in the Greek is present continuous “keep on asking … seeking … knocking).
  • Agreeing with someone else in prayer (Mt 18:19), if appropriate.
  • Praying in the name of Jesus (Jn 14:14), which means praying in harmony with his character (not a selfish prayer).
  • Being in a close obedient relationship with the Lord (Jn 15:7 cf 1 Jn 3:21-22). This will help us to pray in harmony with the Lord’s will.

We have a choice. We can take the way of faith – trusting in the Lord and his promises (whilst fulfilling the manageable conditions) or the way of human reason – ‘some prayers are answered, other aren’t, so this one might not be.’ It is clear that the Lord wants us to pray in faith, i.e. believing his Word. We believe his Word because he is, of course, utterly trustworthy.

So, let’s pray in faith for Revival. I do this every day and include the following words “Remember your covenant, Lord (Jer 14:21)Lord, you promised. I believe you keep your promises but please show that your promises are honoured. Lord, you have bound yourself to answer prayer, primarily in your Word.”

The Lord has bound himself to answer prayer and that means he will act and bring about Revival. We can pray for him to hasten it. I suggest you meditate on the above promises.

Relevant quotations about Revival

“Revival is not something that is worked up; it is something that is prayed down” (From: Baptise with Fire by Arthur Skevington Wood).

[About the Hebridean Revival] “Why have these places been so favoured? Why has the Lord been pleased to shower His blessings and reveal His presence in these remote parts? Why? Because they prayed! They prayed expectantly; they prayed persistently; they prayed whole-heartedly; they prayed believingly. They learned to pray as they prayed. The Holy Spirit has taught them in their praying … As we pray God teaches us to pray. No book on the subject, no sermons, no advice can substitute for the Spirit as a teacher in prayer. It is in prayer that the Spirit cries out within us for souls to be won. We sometimes have to pray through a period of unbelief. Don’t lose heart in the battle. Sometimes God will give you a promise upon which to stand as you determinedly pray through to victory” (Colin & Mary Peckham).

It is appropriate to repeat what Duncan Campbell wrote “Just as I am walking down the aisle, along with this young deacon who read the Psalm in the barn. He suddenly stood in the aisle and looking up to the heavens he said, “God, You can’t fail us. God, You can’t fail us. You promised to pour water on the thirsty and floods upon the dry ground-God, You can’t fail us!”

Soon He is on his knees in the aisle and he is still praying …. Just then the door opened–it is now eleven o’clock. The door of the church opens and the local blacksmith comes back into the church and says, ‘Mr. Campbell, something wonderful has happened. Oh, we were praying that God would pour water on the thirsty and floods upon the dry ground and listen, He’s done it! He’s done it!’ When I went to the door of the church I saw a congregation of approximately 600 people. Six hundred people–where had they come from? What had happened? I believe that that very night God swept in Pentecostal power-the power of the Holy Ghost. And what happened in the early days of the apostles was happening now in the parish of Barvas.”

God bless you,

Tony

 

Church 3 – Declaration from Passion for the Nation

Passion for the nation flag 2020

Church – 3

By Suzanne Ferrett of Passion for the Nation on July 16th, 2020

“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of God in the land of the living.” Psalm 23:13

We decree throughout these next months, the sound of the worship of Jesus will be heard across this land as individuals, families and groups, worship from heart and desire, even when unaided or supported by the flow of others.   We declare in this atmosphere of worship, fresh joy and fresh strength will be released.

Lord we thank You for the transformational power of the wilderness to shape, to train and to anoint. We acknowledge You have been dealing with our pride, our independence, and the desire for position and title, but now You are calling Your people to experience and walk in a fresh revelation of Your Majesty, Power, and Covenant Love. We declare fresh joy and fruitfulness will both break out and become established in our lives, that in the British Isles, men and women will walk in the purpose and destiny written within them.

We praise You for those who will pray, for those who will lead, and for the fresh mantles being released at this time. and we speak the release of every ministry into their God appointed  place and position.

God is opening doors of great opportunity and in the Name of Jesus, we declare His grace, hope and mercy will position His people in the fullness of their call and we decree His people will recognise, overcome and go through the doors He has opened before them. 1 Corinthians 16:8

As Lock down eases and the new normality emerges, we continue to declare a spirit of peace (prosperity, safety and well-being) will rest upon the cities, towns and streets of this nation. We agree great wisdom will rest upon our Parliament, upon the Cabinet, the MPs, Civil Servants and all Advisors, that every decision made will bring perfect alignment with God’ s Kingdom purpose for this land.

Jobs and Economy – Declaration from Passion for the Nation

Passion for the nation flag 2020

Jobs & Economy

By Suzanne Ferrett of Passion for the Nation on Monday July 6th, 2020

“Give and it will be given to you, pressed down…” Luke 6:38

We stand as the Ecclesia and we decree in this nation, the power of wealth and the influence of wealth will be used according to God given Kingdom values, His  will and His purposes. We declare finances – personal, corporate and national – will strengthen and build Kingdom purposes, overwhelming every other agenda, in the Name of Jesus.

Even as we declare the ability to create wealth will rest upon our nation, according to Luke 6:38, we speak a spirit of generosity over the land, creating a right distribution of wealth, and a prosperous, enterprising and inclusive society, and we bless those struggling with balancing incomes and expenditures at this time.

We decree and declare as a new generation of businessmen, entrepreneurs, and property owners arise, accumulation for personal gain will be replaced by Kingdom attitudes and Kingdom goals. We decree and declare they will give and not take, share and not withhold, directed and led by the power of God’s Spirit. In the Name of Jesus, we speak blessing to all those He has called into the marketplace at this time, that strategies, opportunities and finances will flow freely and righteously to them and through them.

In the Name of Jesus, we call forth all those You have anointed to contribute in various and diverse ways to the economy of our nation, from the entrepreneurs to CEOs, and from ministers to treasury officials. We declare the philanthropists will arise and we call forth those called to social enterprise, and the increase of charitable business.

Now, as industries shift and required skills change, we decree the industrial, commercial and business communities within this land, both management and workforce, will embrace every new opportunity Your Spirit is releasing in this day.

Lord, we acknowledge You are the Alpha and the Omega who rules over the nations in love and truth, and that all wisdom comes from You.  We speak Your revelatory wisdom to those who work at the Treasury and the Bank of England – and especially the Chancellor, that all policies, decisions and directives position this nation for blessing in the days ahead.
