Build This Nation
As we continued to pray for the government, we prayed that the Lord would use Theresa May for His purpose, that His power will be displayed and His name will be established in this land. We prayed that Theresa May would come to know God in a deeper way – to understand His heart and ways for this nation.
One of us felt that there was an urgent call to pray and ask the Lord for a breakthrough in this nation. We continued to pray until the Lord brought us to a quiet moment where we stood still before the Lord to hear what He wanted to say.
At this point, I was drawn to Psalms 119:9,
“How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word.”
I felt that the Lord was telling us that as He gives us clean hands and pure heart, we stay pure by obeying His Word. I prayed that those in leadership would not compromise in their stand towards the Brexit discussions but would stand strong in agreement to God’s Word for this nation.
One lady in our meeting prayed that God would soften every hardened heart and that His light would shine before all men. She also prayed for the glory of God to return to this nation. I read out Isaiah 60:1-2, a promise given and prayed many times over this land, and prayed Psalms 27:11-14 over Theresa May as I believe that in humility, the Lord will teach her His ways to build this nation and strengthen her heart so that she would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Another lady prayed Psalms 19 over Theresa May, that He would bring clarity as she takes the lead in the Brexit discussions. He would also be her shield as she puts her trust in Him.
