As we move towards Christmas it hardly seems possible that another year has passed. 2022 has been an extraordinary year in many ways, not just to do with the shakings around us, but because of the intensity of the work of God’s Spirit to bring forth a pure, beautiful and anointed bride. 2 Corinthians 13:11 speaks of becoming complete in Him. God has times and seasons – and 2022 has certainly been ‘a time and a season’, but if you have not yet completed the transition work He desires in your Spirit, in the words of my pastor – there is still time!
Christmas is always a unique opportunity to see the power of the gospel preached and released, but this year provides unprecedented opportunities to release His message of hope and share His love in practical ways.
Thank you everyone for your continued partnership in prayer – have a wonderfully Happy Christmas. – Suzanne
“the people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. …For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. and He will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of His government and peace there will be no end. Isaiah 9: 2- 7
Even as we stand in the beginning of a new move of Your Spirit in our nation and the nations, we praise You Jesus, our Saviour, our friend, the author and finisher of our faith, and we thank You that our names are written in heaven. (Hebrews 12:2, 23).
Now, in the Name of Jesus, we speak to this nation, and we declare the power of God’s goodness and God’s love over our land – that as Christmas draws near, the life which flows from His throne, the blessing, kindness and promise which come from Him will rest upon His people in great measure, that healing and transformation will come to families and communities.
We declare even as You spoke and there was light, so Your people will be so connected to Your heart and Your words, every purpose of heaven You desire for this season will be released. We come into agreement with Jeremiah 29, ‘ for I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you to give you a future and a hope.’
We decree as Your church opens its doors in unusual ways at this time, Your message of hope and salvation will go forth with clarity and creativity, and we call those who are spiritually open and hungry from every age group and community into places of Your Presence to hear Your message of truth.
We declare the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ will be spoken at home, on the streets and from the pulpits and in the Name of Jesus we decree this will be a season of salvations, healings and miracles, and another step in the new season of Your Kingdom which is coming to our land.
We speak rest, peace and joy over individuals and families within our communities. We ask Your love and Your comfort will enter the hearts of all those separated from those they love and we come into agreement with Your word that “You bind up the broken hearted” and “You place the lonely within families….” We declare this Christmas, families will be united and relationships strengthened, that the miracle working power of Jesus will do more than we ask or imagine.
the Name of Jesus, we speak peace and health to those of all age groups struggling with loss, stress, fear, and all mental health issues, that in these days support and care will be maintained, programmes funded and recovery found. We speak healing to those damaged through childhood experiences, trauma or abuse, through addictions or through abandonment, we speak wholeness and healing to those struggling with grief, loss, anxiety or stress.
Now, as Parliament moves towards Christmas recess, we thank You for all those appointed by You to lead in our nation at this time, We cry out that as God’s people pray, and rest comes, their hearts and minds will freshly align with Your will and Your purpose.
We declare God’s people will release peace from the Prince of Peace, mercy from a glorious Saviour and hope from the Lord of all Hope to overwhelm all weariness, hopelessness, death and despair and we speak blessing on every initiative of His Kingdom, in Jesus Name.
