Brexit: Prayer for our nation needed


compiled from various sources

"Nothing has changed in Gods kingdom. Heaven could have a thousand referendums and every time the vote would be 100% - Jesus is Lord."

Simon Jarvis, pastor at One Church, Gloucester


From Temi Fawehinmi of Community Church...

TemiIt occurred to me that in spite of all the rhetoric, scaremongering and predictions of World War 3 (!),  there are some lines not a soul has said, arguments no one has ventured to voice, prophecies no one has had the power to proffer:

"If we leave, God will leave us" or "God will only stay with us if we stay in"!

In spite of the vote, and because of it, He has said: "I will never leave you nor forsake you" and "If you abide in me I will abide in you."

Regardless of the outcome - whether we're in or out of the EU - God is in this place.

If we remain, he remains with us: John 15:7 - If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

If we leave, he goes before us: Deuteronomy 31:8 - The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

God is in this place and his promise in Genesis 28:13-16 stands!

There above it stood the LORD, and he said: “I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I was not aware of it.”

May peace reign in us, in our homes, and throughout the nation.

Brexit: A Significant spiritual moment


PulseWe are at a historical moment as a nation. We may be entering a long period of political and economic uncertainty. We also believe we are at a very significant moment spiritually. Jesus is Sovereign – 'In Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities and authorities – all things were created through Him and for Him.' Colossians 1:16.

In the WPC team some of us backed Remain, others backed Exit but all of us are united in saying we have prayed for Your will to be done and we have a deep peace that it has been.

We have prayed so often for God's spirit to break out. There have been extraordinary signs of this as God visits towns and cities, stirs up prayer and uses ordinary people to take the gospel on to the streets, into the schools, workplaces and universities. So this is a time for renewed prayer for the protection and blessing of our United Kingdom and for Europe. Here are some prayer points – please use them this week so we can stand united praying to see God move in our nation.
  • Whether we voted in or out we declare You are Sovereign Lord over our nation and over the nations.
  • We pray for wisdom for all our political leaders. We pray for grace, and integrity for every Christian MP that they will hear God's voice and be people of influence. We pray for people of God's appointment to lead our political parties and our nation.
  • We pray for the Bank of England and City of London – protect us from people of evil intent, greed, theft and corruption and give real wisdom and integrity to those who manage our finances.
  • We pray for unity in the Church. After this intense debate may we accept that people with different opinions to us are welcome and loved in the Body of Christ. We pray that the Church will be agents of reconciliation.
  • We pray for Your church – that in these uncertain times it will know You are our rock in times of trouble and live and proclaim the good news of the Gospel in villages, towns and cities across the nation.
  • We pray blessing on Europe, that the Gospel will flood the nations, remove the barriers and make the way for His kingdom to come to every nation on our Continent.

Also pray regarding:
  • David Cameron, the outgoing Prime Minister
  • that his replacement is the person of God's calling for the UK at this time
  • the timing of the activation of Article 50, which initiates the process for the UK to leave the EU
  • Jeremy Corbyn MP, his possible successor, and the unsettled Labour Party
  • Nigel Farage MEP and Tim Aker MEP
  • UKIP - what next?
  • Scotland, Northern Ireland and the future of the UK
  • the 27 EU nations
  • Jackie Doyle-Price MP for Thurrock (Remain)
  • Stephen Metcalfe MP for East Thurrock & South Basildon (Leave)
  • the upsurge of racially motivated attacks on property and people in the wake of the Leave decision by extremists who've missed the point
  • the Remain voters who are so dismayed at the result they are trying to get it reversed
  • the strengthening in unity of the Church of Thurrock
  • the peace, grace and joy of Jesus to cover and fill Thurrock's communities
