Joining the Dots News Special
1,000 South Korean Christians Storming the UK to Pray!
Today, I am delighted to share the exciting news that the National Day of Prayer and Worship in partnership with the Korean World Prayer School are launching a new prayer mission this September which will see 1,000 South Korean Christians come to the UK.
The visit this September builds on a similar but smaller mission which took place in 2013 where 300 prayer intercessors visited 11 church communities across the British Isles.
The proposed dates for this amazing visit are 8th -18th September 2014.
I believe there is a call on the Church in the British Isles to warmly welcome our lovely Brothers and Sisters as they come to thank these Isles for sharing the Gospel in times past. The aim of the visit is for the Church in South Korea to repay with gratitude the British people for bringing the Gospel to their country. They will also be challenging us in the UK to remain strong and faithful to our Christian heritage and prepare for an Awakening.
The prophetic scriptures in Isaiah are mirrored in the arrival of these prayerful Koreans: “…Lift up your eyes (Britain) all around and see: they all gather together, they come to you: your sons/daughters come from afar. Isaiah 60:4
I hope that you and your church can join in as these 1,000 South Korean Christians share in the worshipping life of 40 different communities in early September before gathering in Central London for two significant prayer gatherings.
Although the details are still being worked out, I would urge every Christian community, network or local church to prayerfully consider how they might be able to participate in this initiative. I believe we need to make this a united and cross denominational initiative so that the South Korean Christians see the best of the church in these Isles.
If you want your church, town, or city to be one of the hosting centres or simply to find out more, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
At 8.00pm this evening, I will be sharing more of my heart and vision for this historical prayer mission with Jonathan Bellamy from Cross Rhythms as part of tonight’s Breakthrough Nights show.
You can listen online to the how www.crossrhythms.co.uk or on DAB across the UK.
I look forward to hearing from you and your village, town or city as we prepare to come together as one church across the Land praying with the 1,000 South Korean Christians in September. There is only one Kingdom!
May God’s will be done through united prayer, anointed preaching and compassionate action.
