Relighting The Coals
As we were worshipping, I saw old pieces of coal scattered across the map of Wales in a vision, and they started to glow slightly. The coal pieces were in existence during the times of revival in Wales when people sang in the streets to the Lord, and as we lifted the name of Jesus up, something seemed to be stirring in the atmosphere that sparked off the relighting of those coals. We began to sing over the church, the Bride of Christ, that she would sing to the Lord a love song! Isaiah 54:1,
“Sing, O barren, You who have not borne!
Break forth into singing, and cry aloud,
You who have not labored with child!”
A gentleman saw a vision of children coming up from the ground and filling the chapels. He shared that as the children entered the chapels, the delight of the Lord was upon them. We also spoke Psalm 127:3 over them,
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.”
Another gentleman also shared that he saw a vision of Pisgah Chapel filled with Welsh children who were singing, and that brought forth the fragrance of the Lord. We prayed that there would be children worshipping and praying in the churches again. We spent time praying that Wales would be fruitful once again and that the next generation would listen to the heart of God and would worship the Lord and sing to Him new songs.
One lady released Joel 2:13,
“So rend your heart, and not your garments,”
and prayed for the heart of the church to be restored to her heavenly Bridegroom. She prayed that the hearts of the fathers in the church would be turned to their children and the children to their fathers.
We declared Psalm 145:5 over the next generation,
“One generation shall praise Your works to another,
and shall declare Your mighty acts”
and we prayed that the church would be restored so that children will grow up with the fear of the Lord and would be set ablaze. And the Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!” – we prayed that the Bride would respond to the love of the Lord and would take on the baton from the generations before.
One of the ladies in our meeting shared that like marriage between a man and woman, the church needed restoration, so we prayed for the Bride of Christ to remember the covenant made with the Lord, and that just as vows are exchanged between man and woman, she would renew her vows and pledge her love for Him again. As such, we believe that just as in Isaiah 54:13-14,
“All your children shall be taught by the Lord,
and great shall be the peace of your children.
In righteousness you shall be established”.
Finally, I was reminded of Matthew 25, which is the parable of the wise and foolish virgins, and we spent time praying for the Bride of Christ to have a renewed vision and to prepare herself for the return of the Bridegroom.
