Father, I thank you for all that you have done through Britain and her peoples over the centuries to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. May this legacy not be in vain. Millions of souls have died in your arms, and now celebrate with you in the cloud of witnesses because of what the English, Scots, Welsh and Irish peoples have done.
Britain sits as a lighthouse atop the rock of Europe, a rock growing increasingly dark.
Yet for now, Britain continues to point the way to the rest of the world, revealing you, the Father of Lights, to those trapped in darkness: the oppressed, the captive, the enslaved, the tortured, those who hunger and thirst. My prayer is that this light not go out.
Father, in your mercy, please lead us to repentance, so we can uncap the ancient wells of prayer and thanksgiving that our mothers and fathers have dug. Water this green and pleasant land more fully with the Blood of Christ, that He may rule and reign in all hearts. Show us how better to take the rest that you offer in these green pastures and beside our quiet waters.
Where You are, Lord Jesus, there is only peace, and healing. And you know we need both. Big time.
God bless the hands and feet of your servants in Britain as they go about sharing your Good News. Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice that we may know salvation, life in your eternal kingdom and work in the victory you provide.
Holy Spirit, thank you for resting on the shoulders of these daughters and sons of God who carry your presence for healing, freedom and new kingdom life. Walk with them this day, just as they walk with the Son, to do the will of our Father.
We pray Revival Now! Come Holy Spirit, for Jesus Christ’s sake!
