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.

IT WAS SEEN AS DESPERATION in the face of divorce. As it looked for a short and alarming time as if Britain was about to fracture, key Christian leaders sent out urgent calls to prayer which were widely circulated.
Before the Scottish vote… South Koreans blitzed Britain with prayer. But why no room at the Sussex inn?October 3, 2014 | admin
TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE SCOTTISH VOTE ON INDEPENDENCE, 450 young South Koreans arrived on our shores to pray.
Paying their own way, they had shown their commitment to the visit by fasting and praying for 40 days in advance.
Officially their agenda was to pray for renewal and revival in the face of the national and international challenges faced by our nation, in connection with the National Day of Prayer and Worship (NDPW). But as Christians from a divided nation who mourn their persecuted brethren in the savagely repressive North Korea, they would have understood the dangerous implications of Great Britain dividing.

Last issue you read Ian McCormack’s astounding testimony of returning from hell – now read about God’s miracle for the man who organised the evening.
A successful salesman, affable Bruce Barker provided the good life for his wife Ann and family. “We went to church now and then and gave God a nod. We had a big house and a cottage, expensive cars and lived the life,” he explains.
Then one day Bruce collapsed in terrific pain. After a long series of X-rays, the doctor phoned Ann and told her there were lumps on his kidneys and that he only had a few weeks to live. They could do no more for him.
