Last night we met to pray for our nation, and to declare that despite how it may feel on the News, social media and even within our friendships and families, that we our, a United Kingdom!
We were inspired by James Aladiran’s video called The BREXIT Setup, to use Psalm 23 as a guide to pray for the UK, and WOW what a great framework this gave for our prayers to flow!
We used The VOICE version of the Bible, and wanted to encourage you all to pray likewise using this Psalm.
The Eternal is [the United Kingdom’s] shepherd,
He cares for [the United Kingdom] always.
He provides [the United Kingdom] rest in rich, green fields,
besides streams of refreshing water.
He soothes [the United Kingdom’s] fears;
He makes [the United Kingdom] whole again,
steering [the United Kingdom] off worn, hard paths
to roads where truth and righteousness echo His name.
Even in the unending shadows of death’s darkness,
[the United Kingdom] is not overcome by fear.
Because You are with [the United Kingdom] in those dark moments,
near with Your protection and guidance,
[the United Kingdom] is comforted.
You spread out a table before [the United Kingdom]
provisions in the midst of attack from our enemies;
You care for all [the United Kingdom’s] needs,
anointing our head with soothing, fragrant oil,
filling [the United Kingdom’s] cup again and again with Your grace.
Certainly Your faithful protection and loving provision will pursue [the United Kingdom]
where we go, always, everywhere.
[The United Kingdom] will always be with the Eternal, in Your house forever.
As James Aladiran concludes in his video, this is a season to not live in fear, but to declare Father’s truth over our Nation. Join with us in doing this and continue to pray scripture over our Land in this time!
