We joined David Hathaway for the Day of Prayer for Britain at the Emmanuel Centre.
The main hall was full, so they had to open up an overflow room. We worshiped and spent time repenting on behalf of ungodly laws passed. There was time for weeping before the alter. We took the word of God and prayed it back to Him. We made declarations we felt were on His heart and we presented our requests for our nation. In the break we found time as a group to dance before Him and intercede through prophetic worship.
It was POWERFUL.
After the event, I received this from a friend:
For me the whole event was a God encounter. As you know, had a break down 10 year to the day give a few days, not really been to church, don’t pray, read my bible etc, on anti depressants which suppress all feelings. The guy I was sat next to, asked me a while back, if I wanted to go to a day of prayer in London! (My wife’s always asking me if I want to go to church and my answer is always “NO!”) I said, yeah, sounds good (for some unknown reason) - even our son said to my wife in disbelief ... “Dad, going to London to pray .... REALLY ... wow” Anyway, that’s the context around how I ended up there, not really knowing why I’d come. From the moment I sat down, PEACE ... as you can imagine, I no longer sing, or worship (it’s been 10 years), so all I could do was sit or stand in IT. As I have suppressed emotions I WASN’T taken in, by the emotion, the event or the hype of what was going on, but GOD was there. The declarations were REAL and change is coming. Deep in my spirit (I didn’t feel anything) it’s just a deep knowing, I can’t really explain (as it’s easy to express this using emotional terms) something eternal happened
‘in that place’,
‘in the UK’
Here's how God responded to the national day of prayer called by the King in 1940:
