“Time is short” to pray for “torn-apart” Britain

The Day of Prayer announced for 8 September is not really a National Day of Prayer for the simple reason that the government and monarch have not endorsed it.
Both Buckingham Palace and Lambeth Palace have turned down requests for a national day of prayer for several decades.
The Queen has been repeatedly asked to call for a national day of prayer like her father, King George VI did in the dark days of World War II.
One of the founders of the 1960s Festival of Light (which culminated in two large rallies in September 1971), the late Steve Stevens DFC, wrote regularly to the Queen to request that Her Majesty would call such a day as Head of the Church of England and Defender of the Faith.
Several strong prophecies have been circulated this summer, principally that of David Noakes given on 17 June at a meeting in East Grinstead.
Clifford Hill who writes in this paper had a prophecy at the end of July; both his and David Noakes’s prophecies are printed on the Prophecy Today website.

We gathered again, around 250 of us throughout the day, for our annual Great Day of Prayer one year on from an amazing event the Saturday before the EU referendum, when God so mightily answered our prayers.

Town-wide prayer hosted by New Life Church, Durrington, near Worthing, 18 May
Could God send revival to our town? Around 120 Christians from at least six Worthing churches believe that he can and met on a Thursday evening to pray.

On the 20th of February 2016 David Cameron announced that we will hold a referendum. By the 28th of February there were prayer groups all over the country praying that we would leave the EU. We were one of these groups.

Once upon a time the battle for Britain was fought on the battlefields of Europe. Endangered by Nazi invasion Britain’s Premiere Winston Churchill rallied the nation to fight for her survival:
We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
Today’s battle for the survival of Britain is not fought with tanks or Spitfires, it is fought in the prayer meetings of the world.
A monument to answered prayer is envisaged to be as significant in the landscape as The Angel of the North
A huge construction involving one million bricks, each symbolising an answered prayer, is planned for the UK.
The colossal structure, which is intended to become a national landmark for Christian witness, could be the size of 62 houses and be sited next to a motorway like the iconic Angel of the North.
Prayer day for the nation and the EU referendum, hosted by Intercessors for Britain, London, Saturday 18 July 2016
Four hundred plus people were gathered in Regents Hall, while Dave Borlase, director designate of Intercessors for Britain (IFB) preached on three calls to prayer in Joel 2. The first call is to the spiritual leaders who should have been mourning over the state of the land. God is looking not for the nation, but for the Church to pray. The second call is to humble ourselves and confess the sins of the nation in the hope that he may have mercy on us. The third call is “Return to me, rend your heart and not your garments”. The Church has failed to take a lead, has adopted worldly agendas and has not spoken out.
