It was a great hour of worship and prayer last Friday morning, with the majestic sounding of church bells at exactly 8:12am for three minutes. Along with many thousands across the UK we made a noise! Other church bells could be heard in the distance, and the chimes of Big Ben sounding from a car radio. In 1942 when Churchill called for the church bells to rung across the nation, and for the people to pray, there was a turning of the tide in the war. We believe that was divine intervention. And we believe God can intervene in and for this nation again; maybe not with ‘physical war’, but with the war for hearts and minds, for morals, and the future of the British people.
As a part of our House of Prayer, we engaged in worshipping God and calling on Him for mercy on our nation and a turning of the tide of unrighteousness, and life without Him. We prayed for the Government, the police, education, business, and the church; that in all these areas God will Himself be glorified.
After that we prayed for the Olympics, commencing that evening; for the nations who have come to Britain for the event; for the athletes, and for the crowds attending.
We know that God loves this nation, and its godly heritage is no accident. Let’s keep on calling out to Him for a ‘turning of the tide’ in our land.
