Prayer points for Friday 7th August 2020

Setting the scene

On 20th March I called for a National Day of Prayer, not only for the UK, but also for others who live further afield.  A few days after it was over two friends contacted me and asked if I would do a National Prayer Day every Friday, and asked if I would continue to give some pointers each week for prayer.  After prayer, I took up the challenge of doing just that.  Please listen to my original video calling for prayer if you haven’t heard it already – it sets the scene for what we would want to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_w9dLCcSOY

I can hardly believe it’s August already.  Are you like me – feeling that time is swiftly rushing by even more than normal through this Covid-19 crisis?  Time seems in short supply, so let’s make every minute count.  You know many, including myself, believe we are on the brink of the biggest revival the world has ever seen and if this is true then we are in a preparation period right now – a time when we can get prepared for all God is going to do.  When I hear of God moving in our world, my heart cries out, “Lord I want to be involved – I want to be ready – I want to see you move and see so many lives transformed by the love and power of God.”  We read many books that tell us of revivals many years ago and our hearts yearn for God to do it again.  Here in ngm we lived in revival for three years during 2003-2006, where those things we read about in revival books happened in front of our eyes.  Oh, I want to see it happen again!  Let’s get ready – let’s draw close to God – let’s welcome his presence.  Let’s tell him we want to be involved.  Let’s not waste this time.  If you don’t know God, then draw close to God and he will draw close to you (James 4:8 and Jeremiah 29:12-14).  If you do know the Lord, then turn your heart towards him each day, read his written word, seek him by being honest with him – tell him your worries, fears and concerns and leave them at his feet, soak yourself in his presence.  Get in his waterfall of love and get soaked by his Holy Spirit.  Don’t waste this precious time; it’s a time of preparation as we look forward to the greatest move in history.  Let’s keep our focus despite all the fear around us.  Remember we live in the world, but we are not of this world.  Don’t carry fear in your heart.  Do not listen to all the fear mongering in the news…instead remember that our God is faithful and he will bring us through this pandemic, but will we be ready for what God wants to do?  Let’s make sure we are – join me as I seek God like never before. 

PRAYER POINTS FOR FRIDAY 7th August:-   

  1. Praise God the number of people dying has come right down – pray that we will get to the place where there are no deaths from this dreadful disease in the UK and in our world.   Pray for those who have lost friends and family through this crisis.  Pray they will feel the comfort of our great God.  Continue to pray too for the rate of infection to come down.  Pray that we never have to go back into lockdown and that this virus is defeated.

 

  1. Continue to pray for our government and for all world leaders – that they will have wisdom from God.  Pray for leaders who have integrity and honesty at their core.  Pray for all MP’s to work together for the good of the country and pray that each of them will find God during this unusual time.

 

  1. We continue to praise God for our NHS and for all caring professions all over the world.  Pray for surgeons, doctors, nurses, care workers, dentists, assistants, cleaners, receptionists and everyone putting themselves at risk so that we can get the help and treatment we need.  Pray for each person entering the hospitals in our world whether as a patient or as a worker.  Pray for protection for each one.  Pray for their mental health as well as their physical health.  So many of them have heavy hearts because of what they have seen happen to their patients.

 

  1. Pray against fear – there is so much fear in our world at this time.  Pray that those filled with fear will find release of this through the love of God.  1 John 4:18 says there is no fear in love and that perfect love drives out fear.  Let’s pray for many to discover that love for themselves.  Pray that the media will have God fearing men and women at their helm.  Pray for good and honest reporting.  Pray that they will report the good things that happen each day in this crisis.  If you find you are being affected by the news in a bad way, then restrict what you watch and don’t bring it into your home. 

 

  1. Pray for the economy in the UK but also across the whole world.  Pray for supernatural provision for individuals and for businesses.  Pray against anxiety because of difficult decisions that many people are having to make.  Pray that jobs and businesses will be saved.  Pray for kindness and generosity at this time particularly towards others who have lost their jobs/business. 

 

  1. Pray for those with mental health problems, those who have struggled hugely through this crisis.  Pray for abusive situations and for those in despair.  Pray that through their pain, they will find our Lord.  Pray that they will discover heavenly and human kindness that will heal their hurts and transform their lives.  Pray for hope for everyone because if we lose hope – we cease to live.  Guard your hope at all costs by reading the word of God and feeding our minds on the truth displayed in the Bible. 

 

  1. Continue to pray for revival.  Ask the Lord to continue to prepare us during this time.  So many great men and women of God are saying that we are going to see the greatest revival of all time soon, let’s pray and get ready for all God is going to do.  Feed your mind, heart and spirit with the word of God.  Welcome the presence of God into your home and into your life.  Pray for many to turn to God in this hour.  Let’s display kindness and generosity – these things will open people’s hearts so much more than criticism and judgement.  Let’s show the heart and love of our Father in Heaven.

Helpful instructions/suggestions:

  1. Set your phone, your watch, your alarm clock or whatever to remind you to pray throughout the day.  I would suggest praying every hour for a few minutes or for as long as you wish, but make a time that is suitable for yourself.
  2. Maybe pray for one of the above pointers every hour – or take one for each day of the week.
  3.  Every time you wash your hands, which should be often – then pray a ‘Heal Our Nation’ prayer – sing or speak the lyrics of ‘Heal our Nation’ and ask God to pour out his Spirit on this land.‘Heal our Nation, Heal our Nation, Heal our Nation, pour out your Spirit on this land.’  Sing or speak that twice.And finish with the first line from the verse ‘Lord we long for you to move in power’ – and ask God to move in the UK but also move in our world.https://soundcloud.com/nancygoudie/heal-our-nation
  1. Keep reading Psalm 91, Psalm 121 and Psalm 46 to encourage yourself and your family with the truth of the word of God.  Perhaps try meditating on Psalm 62:5-6 – Find rest, O my Soul in God alone; my hope comes from him.  He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress; I will not be shaken.
  2. Use the UK Blessing – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUtll3mNj5U Play it in your home – make this as a wonderful blessing on you and your family, your children and their children. When you go a walk pray it over your neighbourhood. The song was written in Elevation church, USA.  You can watch here and discover how the song came together in the presence of the Lord – no wonder this song is being used at this time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zp6aygmvzM4&feature=emb_rel_end

What a joy it has been to pray for those who have asked for prayer in recent weeks.  Remember if you or others need prayer do drop us an email and we will pray.  Don’t forget our prayer line if you or others need prayer – prayer@ngm.org.uk

Doctors tell us that fear and anxiety kill more people than disease itself.  Something like 80% of all illness is caused by fear and anxiety.  So, let’s not carry fear with us every day especially important through this COVID-19 situation.  Trust in the Lord – oh how we need to learn to trust our God!  Let’s not trust the news and the media more than we trust our Lord.  Read his written word – believe what it says.  An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up (Proverbs 12:25).  I sought the Lord and he heard me and delivered me from all my fears (Psalm 34:4).  Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God (Philippians 4:6).  Jesus himself tells us in Matthew 6:25 not to worry about our lives, about what we will eat or drink or what we will wear, but instead he tells us (verse 33) to seek God’s Kingdom first and all those things will be given to us – again it comes down to trustLet’s tell him that we trust him for our health, for our finances, for our families and friends.  Trust in our God because as you do that’s when peace like a river flows through our bodies and minds – the kind of peace that passes all understanding.  I know this kind of peace because I dared to trust in God when I was at my lowest point in life and he came through for me.  The peace he gave me is still with me four years later.  If he has done this for me – he will do it for you.  Trust him – speak your trust out loud to God and see what he will do.  With love to you all – Nancy x 

Prayer Points for Friday 31st July

On 20th March I called for a National Day of Prayer, not only for the UK, but also for others who live further afield.  A few days after it was over two friends contacted me and asked if I would do a National Prayer Day every Friday, and asked if I would continue to give some pointers each week for prayer.  After prayer, I took up the challenge of doing just that.  Please listen to my original video calling for prayer if you haven’t heard it already – it sets the scene for what we would want to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_w9dLCcSOY

I am aware that many, are getting weary – weary from this virus, weary from things being far from normal, weary from the fight and the struggle, weary from the injustice they see and weary from what seems to be a world with never ending problems.  First and foremost, God knows and he understands.  He will bring us through this unusual time and you need to remember that through every struggle he is there with us.  Someone asked me this week, “Nancy in the midst of all the heartache that I am seeing, where is God?”  It’s a good question, but it is easily answered.  God is not absent when we are going through troubles, instead he surrounds us, he goes before us, he is behind us, he beside us, he is all around us and he lives inside us.  He couldn’t be more involved in all our troubles.  Sometimes we feel his presence and at other times we don’t, but whether we do or we don’t sense him, we can be assured of this truth that he is there – always!  He promises never to leave us nor to forsake us and through all my many years of knowing Jesus, I know this promise has never been broken.  So, if today you are feeling weary, if today you are in pain or feeling troubled, or if in fact like my friend you have asked the question, “Where are you God?”, then be sure of this, he is closer than a brother, he is inside you helping you in every way.  He calls to you saying, “Come to me you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28).  Woohoo!  Our rest and peace lie in running to him and trusting in him.  Jesus died so that we could be free.  Hand over your troubles to him.  Be honest with him and tell him your woes.  He knows, he understands and he is working right now on your behalf to help you in your problems. Remember Romans 8:28 – All things work together for good to those who love God.

 Let’s be assured of this – that our God is true and our God is faithful.  This virus and our troubles won’t last forever so even in the midst of fear, pain and worry, rejoice and be glad for you have a God who cares enough to carry you and to give you rest when you are weary. 

 

PRAYER POINTS FOR FRIDAY 31st July:-      

 

  • Let’s start with praying for our government. They receive so much criticism – and no matter who was in power it would be the same.  Whatever they do – it always seems to be wrong or not enough.  This week they made a quick decision regarding the virus to safe guard our country, and they were criticised for it.  When they took time to consider what to do in times gone by, they were criticised for being too slow.  It seems like whatever they do – the media criticise them.  Let’s not do that – whatever our political leanings, instead, let’s pray for them.  Pray for Boris Johnson, pray for all MP’s whether in the government or the opposition.  Pray for their aids and advisors.  Pray for those who are Christians that they would make a positive influence wherever God has placed them.  Pray for wisdom for our leaders and pray that they individually find God for themselves. 

 

  • Continue to thank God that the number of deaths are continuing to fall in the UK. However, do pray for the number of new cases – as this number continues to rise.  The virus has not gone, and more people are being registered as having the virus.  Pray for the overall rate of infection to go down – particularly in places like Oldham, Blackburn and other places in the north where new restrictions are being put in place to avoid the full lockdown measures that Leicester has had.  Pray for the eradication of this virus.  Pray too for those working on a vaccine, pray for supernatural wisdom and that a good and safe vaccine will be found and be able to be mass produced. 

 

  • Continue to pray for good reporting from the media both in the newspapers but also on the news. Smith Wigglesworth never read anything but the Bible because he didn’t want his mind to be infiltrated by anything other than the Lord.  I do understand why he did this.  Throughout each day so many other voices penetrate our minds from our televisions, computers and our reading materials and those voices are not always good.  Let’s pray for God fearing men and women to be in places of influence in the media to bring integrity and honour into our society.  As I have said before many get disturbed by bad reporting so this is important that the media get it right.

 

  • We continue to praise God for our NHS and for all caring professions all over the world. Pray for surgeons, doctors, nurses, care workers, dentists, assistants, cleaners, receptionists and everyone putting themselves at risk so that we can get the help and treatment we need.  Pray for each person entering the hospitals in our world whether as a patient or as a worker.  Pray for protection for each one.  Pray also against fear – so many people have fear in their hearts and this causes more physical problems that can lead to fatal illnesses.

 

  • Pray for the economy in the UK but also across the whole world. Pray for many businesses who are finding it so difficult to keep their heads above the water.  Pray for supernatural provision for individuals and for businesses.  Do continue to pray for those who have lost their jobs, pray for provision for every one of them.  Pray that their situation would turn their hearts towards God. 

 

  • Pray for those who have been in abusive situations during lockdown. Many of them are speaking out about their traumas.  Pray for healing for each of them.  Pray that they will get the help they need.  Pray that in their traumas that they find the healing power of God. Continue to pray for those with mental health concerns.  As I said last week even those who don’t normally struggle with mental health problems are discovering this time very challenging.  Pray for peace – not just any peace but for Jesus’ peace (John 14:27) – the kind that passes all understanding!  Pray too for joy and again pray for Jesus’ joy (John 15:11) – the kind of joy that took Jesus through a barbaric death on a cross.  Pray that each person would discover hope in our Lord and find their heart being encouraged and their mental health problems healed. 

 

  • So many in the UK and in our world need to find our Lord. Pray for a great awakening to spread throughout our land and indeed our world.  Pray for many to find God in the midst of suffering and pain.  Pray for revival and for God to send his angels to help us all at this time.  May every church think of how they can reach out to those who are struggling in our nation – we have such an opportunity right now to show kindness and to see many won for Jesus.  Let’s pray like never before.  More is happening that we can yet see.  Know this: our Lord loves our world much more than we do – so pray knowing that he hears every word and he is moving in these days.

Remember whatever situation you find yourself today – he knows, he loves and he cares.  He will never leave you on your own, he is with you always.  Every morning whilst exercising, I play The Blessing which reminds me that his favour is on me.  His favour is on you too – if you have forgotten that fact, then listen again to The Blessing and receive the truth that he is for you and with you and his favour rests on us.  Woohoo – what a blessing!  Enjoy praying knowing that every prayer is making a huge difference whether we see it or not.  With love to you all – NANCY GOUDIE

 

 

 

 

Prayer Points for Friday 24th July 2020

Setting the scene

On 20th March I called for a National Day of Prayer, not only for the UK, but also for others who live further afield.  A few days after it was over two friends contacted me and asked if I would do a National Prayer Day every Friday, and asked if I would continue to give some pointers each week for prayer.  After prayer, I took up the challenge of doing just that.  Please listen to my original video calling for prayer if you haven’t heard it already – it sets the scene for what we would want to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_w9dLCcSOY

 

I want to remind you today that if you have become a follower of Jesus then you are a new creation and Christ lives in you.  We so often forget that.  We forget that we can never be alone for Christ lives inside each of us.  Galatians 2: 20 says that I no longer live, but that Christ lives in me.  Woohoo!  What a truth.  Remember when you feel you need life you have the author of life living inside of you.  Remember when you feel you need peace you have the Prince of Peace living inside of you!  Don’t forget when you feel you need strength you have the Mighty God living inside of you.  Don’t forget when you need counselling that you have the Wonderful Counselor living within you.  Wow!  We so need to be reminded of this truth.  If we get a hold of this truth then life will become so different. 

 

Those who know me will know that a number of years ago I felt I had failed at teaching my son how to do his homework, because before he went to school one morning, I shouted in frustration at him.  I was appalled at myself.  I immediately said sorry to my son and before I dropped him at his school, I prayed with him.  He seemed fine, but I was miserable.  I couldn’t believe what I had done.  As I drove home, I spoke out loud to the Lord and told him what an awful mother I was.  In the middle of my rant to the Lord he interrupted me and told me I was Superwoman!  If I hadn’t been so miserable, I would have laughed out loud.  Instead I told the Lord in no uncertain terms that I definitely wasn’t Superwoman.  He insisted I was and told me the reason why.  He told me I was Superwoman because I had the Holy Spirit living inside of me.  He told me to shout in the car that I was Superwoman.  At first I told him I couldn’t do that, but he kept insisting that I did.  When I did, I only barely spoke it, but the Lord kept insisting that I should shout it out loud.  As I had always said I would do what the Lord tells me to do, I eventually shouted it out loud at the top of my voice and then burst out laughing.  Suddenly all my feelings of failure disappeared as joy exploded within me.  The truth is we are all incredible human beings because we have the Holy Spirit living inside of us.  If you have given your life to the Lord then the living God lives inside of you.  So today before you begin to pray, dwell on this truth and remember who you are!  If you don’t know the Lord, then today is a good day to invite him to come into your life.  All you need to do is to pray and give him control of your life.  If you need help to do this, then message me or email me and I would love to help you discover the only true God who gives you life to the full.   

 

 

PRAYER POINTS FOR FRIDAY 24th July:-     

 

  • Let’s start with praying for our government. They have had to make some really tough and difficult decisions.  Whatever your political status, God calls us to pray for our leaders, so let’s pray for wisdom for them.  They have released a vast amount of money into different areas of our society – both into people and into the economy.  They have released even more money into the NHS in preparation for any future spike with the virus.  They have done more than any other government across the world has done and yet they still get criticism that they haven’t done enough.  Let’s pray that they don’t get weary, but that they will keep their eye on the goal and see our nation prosper and succeed.  Pray they will find strength in God and that they will know the Lord intimately for themselves.  Pray for the Prime Minister and all MP’s whether in government or in the opposition.  Pray for aids and advisors that each one would discover wisdom from Heaven.  Let’s thank God for the government we have in this country!  Let’s pray for them with Heaven’s wisdom as God has told us to do.  

 

  • Thank God that the number of deaths continue to fall. This week has seen the lowest amount of deaths since this virus started.  Praise God that we seem to be making progress in controlling this virus.  Pray that the infection rate falls too.  We want to get to the place where there are no deaths in the whole of the UK from this virus and that no one is getting infected either.  Pray that as we get more confident to go out as a nation, that we will continue to have wisdom and keep to the guidelines so we don’t spread the virus.

 

  • Let’s continue to pray for good reporting from the media. I was shocked again at how the media try and manipulate the public to get a good story at the same time sacrificing truth.  Princess Beatrice’s wedding was a good example.  Some aspects of the media put out a headline that suggested that Prince Andrew was nowhere to be seen at his daughter’s wedding – which gave the impression that he was not there at all.  He was there and in fact walked his daughter down the aisle.  So let’s pray against media manipulation and pray for integrity and truth to be shown in the media.  Many get disturbed by bad reporting so this is important that the media get it right.

 

  • We continue to praise God for our NHS and for all caring professions all over the world. Pray for surgeons, doctors, nurses, care workers, dentists, assistants, cleaners, receptionists and everyone putting themselves at risk so that we can get the help and treatment we need.  Praise God for the above inflation pay rises that many of these workers are to receive.  Pray for all those working to help on the frontline against this virus.  Praise God that treatments and scans for other illnesses are beginning to be done – do pray that every person will get the treatment they need quickly.  Most of all pray for healing and wholeness for every person and pray that many will find their hope and faith renewed in the Lord at this time.

 

  • Continue to pray for the economy in the UK and also across the world. Pray for businesses to open safely and for many who are teetering on the brink of closure to be saved.  Pray for people to turn to God and ask for his help with their business.  Thank God for the government and all they have done to help our economy at this time.  Pray that businesses all over the world will find that through generosity and kindness that their business will grow supernaturally.  Do pray for those who have lost their jobs, pray for provision for every one of them.  May their lack of a job and finance mean that they will turn to God in prayer.  Pray for supernatural provision.  Also pray for those who work in supermarkets and shops as they are at high risk for the virus – pray for their safety and that their employers will put their safety and the safety of their customers high on their agenda.   

 

  • Let’s continue to pray for those with mental health concerns. Many are finding life tough, even those who don’t normally struggle with mental health problems are discovering this time difficult.  Pray for peace – not just any peace but for Jesus’ peace (John 14:27) – the kind that passes all understanding!  Pray too for joy and again pray for Jesus’ joy (John 15:11) – the kind of joy that took Jesus through a barbaric death on a cross.  Pray that each person would discover hope in our Lord and find their heart being encouraged and their mental health problems healed.

 

  • Above all let’s pray for revival. Pray for revival for our nation and for the world.  Pray for a supernatural move of God throughout our nation and throughout our world.  Pray that there will be a great awakening in the nation and that we, as the church, would stop bickering with one another and instead start to be kind and to pray for each other.  May every church think of how they can reach out to those who are struggling in our nation – we have such an opportunity right now to show kindness and to see many won for Jesus.  Let’s pray like never before.  The Bible tells us to pray continually (1st Thessalonians 5:17) – so cultivate an intimate relationship with the Lord so you find yourself praying and chatting with him at all times throughout the day.  Don’t limit your prayers to one particular time of day.  Pray, listen to what he is saying and follow his instructions.  Let a cry come from the depths of your being; may a longing for revival be stirred up within you.  Join me as I cry out to the Lord many times a day saying, “Lord, bring revival and start with me!”

Whatever you are going through, remember God lives inside of you.  He is not far away, instead he is inside you – he could not be closer!  Proverbs 18:24 tells us that he sticks closer than a brother and indeed he does.  Four years ago on 25th July I lost my best friend, my husband of 43 years, when he died at the age of 65.  As you can imagine it was the worst time of my life.  Yet God was incredible to me.  At one point I felt the Lord walk into my bedroom and engulf me in a hug.  Actually, it was more than a hug I felt him become one with me.  I can’t fully explain it.  He gave me a gift of peace and what I described as a bubble of joy – all in the midst of mourning.  I was heartbroken but I discovered that it is true what Psalm 34:18 says that God is close to the broken-hearted.  He was and is inside of me and because of that I have a peace that passes all understanding and a joy like never before.  Today whatever you are going through – know this:  God loves you.  He is with you.  He never leaves you.  He lives inside of you.  That is the truth and knowing that truth will set you free.  Discover today as you accept this truth that God is closer than any other human being can be with you.  Woohoo!  What a Saviour!  Then let the world around you know how they too can be free when they have Jesus living inside of them.  With love to you all – NANCY GOUDIE

Are you tired?  Are you weary?  There are many all around the world who right now are tired and weary from many things but particularly of this virus.  I want to tell you that God understands your tiredness.  It’s okay to feel tired.  Jesus was tired.  He understands our weariness and tiredness because he too was tired.  Jesus, who was fully God and was also at the same time fully man fell asleep at one point in a boat after ministering all day.  At another time he sat down by a well because he was tired from the journey.  Are you tired from the journey of life?  Jesus understands because he too experienced tiredness.  But there is one thing I want you to know.  Jesus knew that in order to restore his strength as well as resting, he needed to draw close to his Father in Heaven.  He needed to find his strength in him.  Isaiah 40:31 says, Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength they will mount up with wings like eagles; they will run and not be weary; they will walk and not faint.  Today if you are tired and worn out, then find your strength by coming close to the one who loves you and understands how you feel.

 

I woke up one morning this week with the words of an old hymn going through my mind. The old hymn is called: It is well with my soul.  I don’t know whether you have heard of this old song, but it is a wonderful hymn with an amazing story behind it.  The man who wrote the lyrics of this song was a lawyer and a successful businessman from Chicago called Horatio G. Spafford (1828-1888).  He had known tragedy in his life when not only did his son die, but shortly after this he lost his entire fortune in the great Chicago Fire of 1871.  However, this was nothing in comparison to what happened thereafter.

 

Sometime after the fire he sent his wife and their four daughters to Great Britain to have a rest but also to help his good friend D L Moody in one of the Moody and Sankey missions.  At the last minute, he had to stay in Chicago due to a complication in a business transaction and so told his wife and daughters that he would follow them in a few days.  On the trip over, the ship in which his wife and daughters travelled hit another ship and sank.  Several days later the survivors landed at Cardiff and his wife sent him a telegram saying, “Saved alone…”  He lost his four daughters one of which was a baby.

 

He immediately got on a ship to join his wife in Great Britain.  You can imagine how tired and weary of life he must have been.  He had lost so much of what he valued.  As the ship passed over the place where his daughters died, he suddenly felt a peace that passes all understanding.  He remembered what his good friend D L Moody had once told him, “One of these days you will read that D L Moody has died, but don’t you believe a word of that, because I will be more alive then, than I am now.”  As he pondered on those words with the Lord and thought of his beautiful girls, he said he felt the comfort of the Holy Spirit come on him.  He then went to his cabin and penned these words:

 

V1        When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

 

Refrain:

It is well.

With my soul

It is well, it is well with my soul

 

 

V2        Though Satan should buffet, though trial should come,

Let this blessed assurance control,

That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,

And hath shed his own blood for my soul.

 

Refrain

 

V3        My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!

My sin, not in part but the whole

Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more

Praise the Lord praise the Lord, O my soul.

 

Refrain

 

V4        For me, be it Christ be it Christ hence to live;

If Jordon above me shall roll,

No pang shall be mind, for in death as in life

Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul

 

Refrain

 

V5        But Lord ‘tis for Thee, for thy coming we wait,

The sky, not the grave is our goal,

Oh, trump of the angel!  Oh, voice of the Lord!

Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul.

 

Refrain

 

V6        And Lord haste the day when my faith shall be sight

The clouds be rolled back as a scroll

The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend

Even so, it is well with my soul.

 

Refrain

 

It was when he drew close to the Lord that his hurt, pain and tiredness was washed with God’s peace and undying love.  With all that is going on in our world, the temptation is to succumb to fear, worry, concern and become very tired and worn out, but the Lord invites us all to become refreshed in his arms.  He has told us: In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, for I have overcome the world.  Whatever you are going through right now, take comfort that the Lord knows and understands and be encouraged by the words of this amazing hymn and the story behind it.

Find your strength in the God of all comfort and get ready to pray and minister again.  That’s what Jesus did and what he calls us to do too.

 

PRAYER POINTS FOR FRIDAY 17th July:-     

  • Let’s start by praying for those who are mentally and emotionally finding things so difficult. There are many being troubled by the situation we are in and therefore their mental health is being affected.  Many have lost jobs too and this is causing hopelessness.  Without hope we die, so we need to pray for real hope for many.  When your mental or emotional health is not good, we tend to feel more tired.  We are awake at night worrying about different situations and therefore our sleep patterns tend to cause us to feel more tired than normal.  So, let’s pray for those who are struggling in this way.  Let’s pray that many find hope in the God of all hope.  Pray Romans 15:13 over them:  May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

  • We continue to praise God that the number of deaths continue to fall, in fact there are less deaths that what is normal for this time of year. Scotland has had no deaths in the last week.  So do keep praying that this continues to happen in the whole of the UK.  We want to see no one dying from Covid19.  We continue to have a problem in Leicester and now Blackburn too has returned to lockdown – so do pray that both places find that the infection rate will fall again.  Pray that everyone would continue to adhere to the government guidelines and that we would see the R rate fall to safe limits right across the UK.

 

  • Continue to pray for Boris Johnson and all MP’s whether in the government or the opposition parties. Pray for good and wise decisions about the virus and also regarding the economy.  Pray for those giving advice and help to the government on these issues.  Pray that our government would acknowledge they need Heaven’s wisdom and many will find God for themselves.

 

  • Pray for good reporting from the media. This week, on Tuesday in particular, the media was full of doom and gloom regarding the virus and it was hard to find anything positive.  Pray for the BBC and all the media channels that they would have integrity and accurate reporting rather than spinning the truth.  So much of people’s fears come from listening to the news channels.  Let’s pray that the news channels use their position of reporting to build up society rather than bringing fear and sometimes confusion.

 

  • Let’s continue to praise God for the NHS and for all who work in the caring professions all over the world. Praise God for the surgeons, doctors, nurses, care workers, dentists, assistants, cleaners and everyone putting themselves at risk so that we can get the help and treatment we need.  Pray for all those working to help on the frontline against this virus.  Also pray for those who have not had their treatment or scans because of the urgency to deal with Coronavirus patients.  Pray that those needing treatment for other diseases will get the treatment they need quickly.  Praise God for those who work in supermarkets or shops, the government have said that those people are at high risk and many have caught the virus and are dying – so pray for each one; pray for good health for them and for a relationship with the Lord. 

 

  • Let’s continue to pray for the economy. We are being told that the effect of this virus will be felt for many years in our economy.  Pray that this will not be the case.  Pray for a good and strong economy.  Pray for businesses who have weathered the storm so far, and pray that they will thrive rather than just survive.  Pray for the Eat Out to Help Out scheme the government have initiated for August.  Pray that it really helps the restaurants and bars.  Pray for our confidence to return so that we feel we can eat out.  Pray for nail salons and spas, hotels when they are able to open up that they find ways of continuing on with the business they have whilst accommodating all the guidelines from the government.  Pray for the many thousands who have lost their jobs over the last number of weeks.  Pray that they will find a new job.  Do pray that their lack of finance and their insecurities lead them to the God of all comfort and provision. 

 

  • We have now been praying for 17 weeks and we have seen so much happen. People have turned towards God.  Prayer has been valued and many have discovered church online.  Many have found the truth and have discovered this truth is settling them free.  Some have given their lies to Jesus and discovered freedom and joy.  We have seen much accomplished but oh we want to see so much more.  So, let’s keep praying, let’s keep crying out for His Kingdom to come.  Pray for revival in the church and a great awakening in society.  Pray for a Tidal Wave of his Spirit on our land and in our world.  Pray for many to know the Lord and for each Christian too to go deeper than before.  Let’s live in his presence, let’s dwell in his arms.  Let’s turn to him whatever situation we find ourselves in.  Let’s encourage ourselves with the truth of the word of God.  He is our safe and strong tower.  He is our constant companion.  He won’t leave us nor will he ever forsake us.  Be encouraged, share your hope and rely on his love and grace.  As we do, we will see even more happen as we talk/pray to the God of all hope.

 

 

Helpful instructions/suggestions:

  1. Set your phone, your watch, your alarm clock or whatever to remind you to pray throughout the day. I would suggest praying every hour for a few minutes or for as long as you wish, but make a time that is suitable for yourself.
  2. Maybe pray for one of the above pointers every hour – or take one for each day of the week.
  3. Every time you wash your hands, which should be often – then pray a ‘Heal Our Nation’ prayer – sing or speak the lyrics of ‘Heal our Nation’ and ask God to pour out his Spirit on this land.  ‘Heal our Nation, Heal our Nation, Heal our Nation, pour out your Spirit on this land.’  Sing or speak that twice.  And finish with the first line from the verse ‘Lord we long for you to move in power’ – and ask God to move in the UK but also move in our world.  https://soundcloud.com/nancygoudie/heal-our-nation
  1. Keep reading Psalm 91, Psalm 121 and Psalm 46 to encourage yourself and your family with the truth of the word of God.  Perhaps try meditating on Psalm 62:5-6 – Find rest, O my Soul in God alone; my hope comes from him.  He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress; I will not be shaken.
  2. Use the UK Blessing – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUtll3mNj5U Play it in your home – make this as a wonderful blessing on you and your family, your children and their children. When you go a walk pray it over your neighbourhood. The song was written in Elevation church, USA. You can watch here and discover how the song came together in the presence of the Lord – no wonder this song is being used at this time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zp6aygmvzM4&feature=emb_rel_end

 

What a joy it has been to pray for those who have asked for prayer in recent weeks.  Remember if you or others need prayer do drop us an email and we will pray.  Don’t forget our prayer line if you or others need prayer – prayer@ngm.org.uk 

In the midst of this virus, in the midst of the uncertainty, in the midst of the tiredness, let’s tell the Lord that we trust him.  Can I encourage you to do that today and live in that blessed place of peace, that wonderful waterfall of his Spirit?  Exchange your life for his life….and live life to the full no matter what happens.  This is your inheritance if you know and love our Lord.  Draw near to the Prince of Peace.  Allow his peace to come on you – the peace that passes all understanding and know the depths of his love for you.  Our God knows and understands our pain, our sorrow, our fears and our concerns and he encourages us to run to him, our strong tower (Proverbs 18:10).  His peace will come when we stand in his presence and trust him.  There is much around us to cause us pain and heartache, but as we trust in him, he imparts not only his peace but his joy and his life.   If you don’t know him then today trust in his unfailing love and know the depths of peace that he brings to your soul – then you can sing – It is well with my soul.

 

Keep praying and praising.  With love to you all – NANCY GOUDIE

Prayer points for Friday 10th July 2020

Setting the scene

On 20th March I called for a National Day of Prayer, not only for the UK, but also for others who live further afield. A few days after it was over two friends contacted me and asked if I would do a National Prayer Day every Friday, and asked if I would continue to give some pointers each week for prayer. After prayer, I took up the challenge of doing just that. Please listen to my original video calling for prayer if you haven’t heard it already – it sets the scene for what we would want to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_w9dLCcSOY

I am so aware of the need of a move of God across our land. We have left our first love as a nation. This country used to be called Christian, but oh how times have changed. We used to be a nation who sent missionaries to various parts of the world. Now it is us who need to be evangelised. It is us who need to hear the truth.

When Ray and I founded our band called Heartbeat about 40 years ago, one of the things we did was to visit various schools all over the UK. We took many RE lessons in the schools and shared our faith. One of the things we noticed was that the teenagers we met were totally unaware as to what a Christian was. When we asked them to tell us what they thought a Christian was some of the answers would have been hilarious if not so tragic. They thought a Christian was someone who drank tea and watched “Stars of Sunday” (a Christian programme on TV similar to Songs of Praise). Others told us a Christian was someone who ate bacon and eggs for breakfast (this was in a Jewish school) or someone who grew their own vegetables. Others told us the usual answers of someone who went to church and sat on a hard pew listening to a boring sermon. When we told them what a true Christian was and showed them how God was real and alive today, they listened. They didn’t want to go to church, but they wanted to discover a God who was real, alive and who could deeply affect their lives today. They wanted to know a God who loved them and who understood what they were going through in life. The story of Jesus and how he loved them, gave them a taste of real Christianity and thousands of them throughout the 80’s decided to come to know God for themselves. Our nation again needs to hear again about a God who cares, who loves us and who will never leave us even when life is bad. Right in the middle of this pandemic, whether we are a Christian or not, we need to hear that our God is good, he is kind and he is so faithful. He doesn’t leave us to fight our own battles, instead he is right in the middle of this pandemic with us. If you are a Christian, then trust him now and know the depths of his love for you. Don’t listen to the lies of the enemy that he has deserted you. The truth is that he is with you always. If you have known this truth, then begin to share with others, what God has done as you have travelled through this tough and awful time. Tell them that you could not have been able to go through this journey without him. I know this is true for me. I live to declare the goodness of God in the land of the living. He has been my strong tower, my shield and my faithful God. If you are not a Christian, then I implore you to discover our God who loves you and doesn’t stop loving you. He has loved you from the beginning and he will love you to the end. He is a God who gave himself so that others might live.

My husband sadly died 4 years ago. It was the toughest time of my life yet I have been able to endure the loss because of the presence of my God who loves me and who engulfed me with his love. During Ray’s last stay in hospital I remember one day the nurses trying to get blood from him so that they could test it. My husband’s veins were never easy to find and so after a while of trying to get blood from his arms and his hands they eventually tried to get blood out of his feet. Ray was in agony as they poked a needle all over him without success. At one point I almost said, “Here take my blood, I’ve got lots of veins”. I would have done anything to stop them hurting Ray, but I realised how futile my offer would have been. My blood would not work for Ray, they needed his blood to find out what was going on. Through recalling this awful time, I was reminded that Jesus freely gave his blood for each of us. Through the shedding of his blood, he gave us the opportunity of knowing God and living life to the full. He died so that we could live. What a wonderful God we have. He is a good and faithful God. He never leaves us alone. He is always with us. We don’t go through this virus alone! No matter what trauma we experience, God is with us and he cares like no other – enough to give his blood for you. Join me as we talk to this incredible God who today woos us as individuals and also as a nation back to himself.

PRAYER POINTS FOR FRIDAY 10th July:-

1) Pray for many to come to know the Lord who gave his blood so that you and I may live. Pray that our nation turns back to God. Pray that we will discover a God who loves us and cares for us. Pray for revival to sweep our nation and for many thousands to be swept into God’s Kingdom. Pray for a Tidal Wave of his Spirit to come and hit our land bringing healing, justice and forgiveness. Pray for God to Heal our Nation – https://soundcloud.com/nancygoudie/heal-our-nation Use this song to cry out for God to come and heal our nation.

2) Praise God that the number of deaths continue to fall. Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales are seeing the death rate fall dramatically. The death rate in England too has been much lower. We continue to see less deaths in the UK than is usual for this time of year which is wonderful, but we won’t be satisfied until we are seeing no deaths at all from Coronavirus. The rate of infection overall for the UK is still below 1 although we do need to be careful to follow the government advice to make sure it doesn’t rise above 1. We have also been able to deal with the hotspots in Scotland and also in certain places in England. Do keep praying – we have a long way to go, but we are going in the right direction. As long as we continue to observe the guidance from the government then as we pray, we should see progress.

3) Let’s continue to pray for our government as the Lord has instructed us to do. Whatever your politics, pray for the Prime Minister and MP’s of all parties. Pray for those who work in the government too as aids and advisors. Pray for unity in fighting this virus. Continue to pray for God’s wisdom to know how to control this virus and to see the economy get started safely again. Continue to pray for good reporting in the media. So many report inaccuracies and often spread much fear. If you find this happening to you, then don’t watch the news every day as it can affect your mental and emotional health. Let’s praise God for what the government have given to help in this crisis. They have released money so that people’s jobs might be safe. They have ploughed money into the NHS etc. They have done more than any other government have done across the world. Just this week they announced a grant of £1.57billion to the Entertainment and Theatre industries. They have also announced this week many measures to help employers to retain their employees or to create many new jobs particularly for those in the 16-24 age bracket. Do pray that these measures help in the long run to avoid huge unemployment.

4) Let’s continue to praise God for the NHS and for all who work in the caring professions all over the world. Praise God for the surgeons, doctors, nurses, care workers, dentists, assistants, cleaners and everyone putting themselves at risk so that we can get the help and treatment we need. Pray for all those working to help on the frontline against this virus. Pray for those who have not had their treatment or scans because of the urgency to deal with Coronavirus patients. Pray that those needing treatment for other diseases will get the treatment they need quickly.

5) Do pray for our economy – most businesses have opened up now but are finding that the public are not coming out to spend in the way they did previously. The government have issued a new Eat out to Help Out scheme during August – do pray that this works well and helps in some way. Pray that we will all have the confidence to shop and also eat out safely. Pray for those who work in those shops and pray that they will be able to retain their jobs. Pray for restaurants, hotels and pubs that they will find safe ways of opening. Two or three pubs this week in England have had to close again after someone was found to have tested positive for the virus. Pray for all businesses and for the public to keep safe. Pray for those working in places that are as yet not allowed to open – like gyms and spas and nail salons. Pray that it may be safe soon to open up again. Pray for the many thousands who have lost their jobs over the last number of weeks. Pray that they will quickly find a new job. Do pray that their lack of finance and their insecurities lead them to the God of all comfort and provision. Praise God as I said earlier that the government has said they are going to be ploughing £1.57billion grant into the theatre and entertainment industries. This is huge. Pray that each penny will be spent in the right way. Continue to pray for schools and college students who have found this lockdown difficult. So many young people have struggled with missing their friends. Do pray for their mental and emotional health.

6) I am aware that many are weary of all the structures that have been put in place so that we can be safe. I am aware that many are finding their peace and confidence in God at this time being shaken. Now is the time to renew our confidence in our great and powerful God. Let’s continue to read the Bible and soak in his truth. We must remember that the enemy would love to feed us lies (after all that is his native language) and feed the insecurity within our own hearts. So, let’s pray for ourselves that as we trust in God, we will have many testimonies to tell others about how God brought us through this crisis. Instead of giving in to the enemy’s tactics, let’s stand strong knowing that as we declare our trust and faith in God, God will give us HIS peace and HIS joy and indeed HIS life. Remember what it says in Psalm 46 – God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. V7 – The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. V10 Be still and know that I am God. Let’s still our stressful hearts and rejoice in who our God is. Pray for many that today they will find that no matter what happens, that the Lord is their refuge and strength in times of trouble.

7) We have accomplished much as we have prayed over the last number of months since March 20th. However, we mustn’t stop now. Let’s continue to pray until this virus is defeated. The government and the scientists are expecting a second wave of this virus in the winter and so it is important that we are praying into this now. We must keep in our minds that although the death rates are coming down, this virus has not disappeared. It is still very much here and it can be deadly. We are not depending on our own strength or indeed own wisdom, but we are depending on God’s help and strength at this time. Let’s unite our prayers for a great move of God across this nation and in our world. Let’s pray for many to turn to God and that in time we will see this virus eradicated.

I will leave you with a few verses from Joshua 1. This was when Joshua was commissioned to lead the children of Israel into the promised land. His mentor/leader Moses was now dead and Joshua took over as leader. I can just imagine the insecurities that he must have felt. Can I do this? Am I able to lead these people? Will God be with me as he was with Moses. It was at that point that God spoke and said, V5b “As I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will never leave you nor forsake you.” V7a “Be strong and very courageous.” V9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” So, in these days when we too can feel weary and insecure, let’s hear the voice of God speak to us as he did to Joshua and tell us that we need not be discouraged, for he is with us every step of this coronavirus journey. Trust in the God who is faithful to all his promises (Joshua 21:44-45).

Let’s trust him with all of our heart and lean not on our own understanding. In all our ways let’s acknowledge him and he will direct our paths (Proverbs 3:5-6). Let’s continue to praise, let’s continue to pray and let’s continue to trust. With love to you all – NANCY GOUDIE

Prayer Points for Friday 3rd of July 2020

Setting the scene

On 20th March I called for a National Day of Prayer, not only for the UK, but also for others who live further afield.  A few days after it was over two friends contacted me and asked if I would do a National Prayer Day every Friday, and asked if I would continue to give some pointers each week for prayer.  After prayer, I took up the challenge of doing just that.  Please listen to my original video calling for prayer if you haven’t heard it already – it sets the scene for what we would want to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_w9dLCcSOY

This week I watched the UK Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast online.  This is something I have attended in the past at the House of Commons in Westminster but this one we all watched online due to Covid 19.  What a thrill it was to see our Prime Minister and the Leader of the opposition talk about the importance of prayer.  It was wonderful to hear prayers and the reading of the Bible from various MPs and a talk from the Leader of the House.  It was wonderful to hear an address by a Bishop who talked about the importance of the local church – he mentioned that there are more churches in the UK than there are pubs.  He talked about how Jesus came as a servant and how the churches are serving in the many communities all over the UK.  This half hour programme is well worth watching again – visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJZGdTxD9Ko to watch on youtube.  The thing I was most encouraged by was the way that the name of Jesus was spoken about and uplifted so many times.  God is doing something in our nation at this time – and it’s so exciting.

I cannot get the longing for revival out of my heart – not that I want to do that – in fact the very opposite, I want the longing to continue to grow and develop until I see it happen in front of me.  Back in 1985, I saw a vision of a Tidal Wave of God’s Spirit hitting the shores of this land.  I was in the band my husband and I founded back in 1980 called Heartbeat and out of that vision we wrote a song called Heal Our Nation.  I have just this last week heard of three prophetic pictures that people have had recently of a Tsunami wave of God’s Spirit crashing onto the shores of our land.  My heart cries out as it did in 1985, Lord come and do it.  Let’s see a new move of your Spirit touch our land in a way that sees the church revived and the nation awakened.  We want to see a great Awakening – a move of God’s Spirit in our land.  Nothing else will satisfy.  In the middle of this Coronavirus, we have an opportunity to pray and ask God to move in supernatural and incredible ways.  To break into people’s lives with the truth of who Jesus is and how he can affect their lives.  Will you join me? 

I told you last week that I have been reading about the last great awakening in the UK – The Hebridean revival in 1949-1952.  A move of God Spirit swept through those islands and it resulted in many coming to know Jesus – in many towns, there was not one home which was not affected by the revival.  This happened here in the UK, not in some far off land, but right here in our own country.  I mentioned last week, that my husband and I saw the same signs of revival in our own ministry.  We saw people repenting not because someone preached a fantastic gospel message, but because God walked into the building and people suddenly saw the hardness of their own hearts.  These were full time Christian workers who loved God, yet under his spotlight they saw that they were not living the way the Lord wanted us to live. It all started when my husband and myself fell in love with the Lord to a much deeper level.  We just could not get enough of him.  Still to this day, I still cannot get enough of my Lord.  I love his word.  I live in his presence, I dwell in the depths of his love, I experience him every day and I continue to be overwhelmed by him.  I want others to experience my Lord.  Don’t you?  If that’s your heart then please join me in praying for revival to sweep across our land and for God’s name to be lifted high.    

 

PRAYER POINTS FOR FRIDAY 3rd July:-         

  • It’s been good to see the number of deaths continue to go down – in fact the statistics tell us that we are now seeing less deaths than normal for this time of year. Let’s continue to pray that the death rate remains low, despite the problems we seem to be encountering in Leicester and possibly in Doncaster, Rochdale, Barnsley and Bradford.  Pray that the rate of infection comes down in all these cities and that people continue to follow the advice of the government wherever they live in the UK.   Despite these hotspots it seems like the rate of infection is continuing to come down which is great.  Do keep praying – we are not out of the woods yet, but we are going in the right direction.
  • As I said earlier, it was great to see both the Prime Minister and also the leader of the Opposition Party and the Leader of the House speaking on the National Prayer Breakfast about the importance of prayer. It was good to hear Boris Johnson thanking the church for praying for him personally through his problem with Coronavirus.  As he said, “It seems to have worked!”  Let’s continue to pray for our government and for all the MP’s no matter what party they are from.  Pray for all the Christians working in Parliament whether as MP’s or elsewhere.  Pray for God’s wisdom to know how to control this virus and to see the economy get started safely again.  Continue to pray for the media in the USA and in various other places in our world that they would have integrity and report news accurately.  Pray that the Prime Minister and his government and the leaders of every party will recognise their need of God’s help in tackling the many difficult issues they are facing today.  Indeed, pray for national leaders all over the world.  Let your heart continue to cry God soaked prayers for our land.

 

  • Let’s continue to praise God for the NHS and for all who work in the caring professions all over the world. Pray for each individual – pray for their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health at this time.  Pray for healing of memories for some of the things they have seen in the selfless work they have done.  Pray for the families of those who have seen their loved ones die because they have been serving others.  Continue to pray that their grief doesn’t turn into bitterness.  Pray for many to come to know God and turn to him for their help and strength at this time.

 

  • Let’s pray for businesses, restaurants and pubs that are now allowed to open. Pray that they will find safe ways of operating and that they would find their businesses increasing in custom at this time.  Pray for those working in places that are as yet not allowed to open – like gyms and spas and nail salons.  Continue to pray for those who have lost their jobs as I am sure you will have seen on the news there was over 11,000 redundancies yesterday on top of the many thousands there has been already.  It’s not easy to get a new job during this lockdown period.  Do pray that their lack of finance and their insecurities lead them to the God of all comfort and provision.  Continue to pray for the travel, events, theatre and entertainment industries.  These industries have been hit so hard and many are suffering because of it.  Pray for a way through this.  Pray for all pupils as they have their last days at school before the summer holidays.  Again, many children are struggling at home and need our prayers.  Do pray that parents and their children will find good and easy ways of learning at home. 

 

  • In this last week I have encountered many who are struggling with their mental and emotional health. So many need our prayers.  Let’s not forget to pray for their mental health.  Pray the wonderful peace of Jesus on them.  His peace is the peace that passes all understanding.  Pray for his presence to come on them particular at night when they sleep.  Pray for good and positive dreams and ones that lead to God rather than away from him.  Fear and worry if not checked can eventually lead to ill health and some have even died because of the fear and concerns they have.  Let’s pray against this and pray that they find the Prince of Peace.  Pray that in this time God will invade their dreams and set people free.

 

  • Let’s continue to pray that this virus is defeated. The government and the scientists are expecting a second wave of this virus in the winter and so it is important that we are praying into this.  We must keep in our minds that although the death rates are coming down, this virus has not disappeared.  It is still very much here and it can be deadly.  Let’s remain positive and know that our God can kill this virus in a second.  He did it in Egypt thousands of years ago and he is the same today as he was yesterday.  He is not limited in his power.  So, let’s pray and ask God that when it is the right time, that this virus would be eradicated and, in the meantime, that God would keep us safe and well. 

 

  • More than ever we need to pray for revival. We want to see that Tidal Wave of God’s Spirit to flow across our land and for many to be swept into this Kingdom.  Keep yourself in that waterfall of his Spirit and remain in his presence.  Receive his joy, his peace and his life into every breath that you breathe.  Increase your knowledge of God by reading and studying the Bible.  Read the life giving words from the Bible and hear Jesus speak life into your heart.  Pray for yourself, pray for your family, pray for your friends and your leaders.  Pray and remember as we pray, he hears every word and he will respond to you.  Remember we have an opportunity now that we may not have again to share the goodness and love of God.  So, don’t delay, but cry with everything within you for God to move in power in the UK and in our world. 

 

Helpful instructions/suggestions:

  • Set your phone, your watch, your alarm clock or whatever to remind you to pray throughout the day. I would suggest praying every hour for a few minutes or for as long as you wish, but make a time that is suitable for yourself.
  • Maybe pray for one of the above pointers every hour – or take one for each day of the week.
  • Every time you wash your hands, which should be often – then pray a ‘Heal Our Nation’ prayer – sing or speak the lyrics of ‘Heal our Nation’ and ask God to pour out his Spirit on this land. ‘Heal our Nation, Heal our Nation, Heal our Nation, pour out your Spirit on this land.’  Sing or speak that twice.  And finish with the first line from the verse ‘Lord we long for you to move in power’ – and ask God to move in the UK but also move in our world.  https://soundcloud.com/nancygoudie/heal-our-nation
  • Keep reading Psalm 91, Psalm 121 and Psalm 46 to encourage yourself and your family with the truth of the word of God. Perhaps try meditating on Psalm 62:5-6 – Find rest, O my Soul in God alone; my hope comes from him.  He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress; I will not be shaken.
  • Use the UK Blessing – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUtll3mNj5U Play it in your home – make this as a wonderful blessing on you and your family, your children and their children. When you go a walk pray it over your neighbourhood. The song was written in Elevation church, USA. You can watch here and discover how the song came together in the presence of the Lord – no wonder this song is being used at this time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zp6aygmvzM4&feature=emb_rel_end

What a joy it has been to pray for those who have asked for prayer in recent weeks.  Remember if you or others need prayer do drop us an email and we will pray.  Don’t forget our prayer line if you or others need prayer – prayer@ngm.org.uk 

We, from ngm, held our very first Nancy Goudie’s Spiritual Health Breakthrough session on Tuesday night and it was so good to see so many come online and listen to the message that we are remarkable.  Each one of us is special, unique, incredible and remarkable.  We may not think that of ourselves, but it is the way God sees us.  Remember you are someone who is loved, who is called and chosen and who is blessed beyond all comprehension.  You are loved with an everlasting love.  You are never forgotten.  It was so good to remind those who came on to the breakthrough session that this is the truth of the word of God.  If you want to join us next time, then write to info@ngm.org.uk and ask for information to be sent to you when it is available.  We all need to be reminded of how God sees us.  Until next week, do keep remembering God is for you and with you.  Every prayer is precious and God hears every one.  He listens to our every whisper.  You are never forgotten not even for a second.  So, with these thoughts in mind, let’s pray with confidence that our God not only hears us, but that he loves us and our prayers can move mountains.  With love to you all – NANCY GOUDIE  

Prayer points for Friday 26th June 2020

Setting the scene

On 20th March I called for a National Day of Prayer, not only for the UK, but also for others who live further afield.  A few days after it was over two friends contacted me and asked if I would do a National Prayer Day every Friday, and asked if I would continue to give some pointers each week for prayer.  After prayer, I took up the challenge of doing just that.  Please listen to my original video calling for prayer if you haven’t heard it already – it sets the scene for what we would want to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_w9dLCcSOY

 

Have you ever read about revival?  Have you ever experienced or longed to experience what you have read?  I am more aware this week than ever before that our world needs an unprecedented move of God in our society.  I listened to two talks this week recorded in the USA encouraging people that pedophiles should be accepted and that there is nothing wrong with the feelings and desires that they have.  I also read this week that in New Zealand abortions can now be legal until the moment of birth if two practitioners agree and that if a child is aborted but is born alive, that the baby should be given no help at all to live and should be allowed to die.  I don’t know about you, but when I read and listened to both these items in the news, my heart cried.  There are so many other issues in our society that should make our hearts cry such as the violence we see and we don’t see, the murders we hear about on the news, the injustice that happens, the racism that continues to occur and so much more.  However, it’s not sufficient just to have a sadness in our hearts when we hear of such things, instead we need to rise up as the church and pray.  When we pray, God moves and changes people’s lives.  In the Bible it talks about “If my people will humble themselves and pray then God would hear from Heaven and heal our land.  The Lord was not speaking to society when he instructs his people to pray, he is speaking to the church – we need to wake up and see what is happening in society, but not just mourn about what is happening but humble ourselves and pray.  I’m talking to myself here just as much as to you.  We can all be complacent and we can all think to ourselves, “Well, what can I do?  I’m only one person.”  Yet as we look at the scriptures, often God used one person and usually a weak person but used them in incredible ways.  Who am I talking about, well what about Moses, who was so full of fear that he ran away?  He was a murderer, a stutterer and yet God used him and he became one of the greatest leaders that the world has ever seen.  What about Esther, a young girl, a refugee, an orphan, a foreigner yet she became Queen.   What about David, a poor shepherd boy, not even thought about by his family when Samuel came to see them.  He became King and even when he was King and became a murderer and an adulterer, God did not reject him.  What about Gideon who was the weakest in his clan and his clan was the weakest in his tribe?  What about Mary a young virgin girl who was around 13 or 14, yet God used her as the mother of Jesus.  There are so many in scriptures that God didn’t reject because they looked to the naked eye as weak, because God saw them as they really were, strong and mighty.  God sees you today as a strong and mighty warrior.  You may think your prayers are weak but God takes the weak things of this life and makes them strong. 

 

My brother sent me a recording this week of a story of the Hebridean revivals which happened in 1949 – 1952.  The Hebrides are a group of islands off the coast of Scotland.  In this recording you can hear the evangelist Duncan Campbell who was used to bring revival to these islands many years ago, talking about a young 16 year old boy who through his prayers brought revival to his land – https://youtu.be/wgAZdtuBucE  – I look at our world and I can see that we need revival.  I look at the church and again I can see we need revival.  I have seen first hand how God moves in the church and in society with revival when we pray.  I have read about past revivals in books, but I have also seen those same signs happen when we seek God and pray.  In 2003 – 2006 my husband and myself saw, all I can describe as, a revival in our church/ministry where people were flat on their faces before God repenting of everything and anything in their lives.  No one preaching, but God moving in unprecedented ways his wonders to perform.  Literally the floor of our building had puddles of water all over it from people’s tears as they repented and sought God.  Our longing for God and for his ways burned in our hearts.  When someone who didn’t know Jesus entered our building, they were immediately struck by the Spirit of God and wanted to know what was going on in our building.  Someone walked in through our garden gate and immediately said, “Wow, I feel like I have entered into Narnia,” – she gave her life to Jesus and came to work in our ministry.  It all started with my husband and I praying and seeking God and God increased the desire in our hearts for him until we just could not get enough of him.  We need God to do it all again.  Will you pray?  Will you seek God?  Will you humble yourself and pray?  Will you ask for forgiveness for ourselves and for our world?  Let’s not judge someone else, but let’s ask for God to wake us up and pray.  We have much to thank God for; there are many signs that this Coronavirus in coming under control, but it has not gone away.  We need to continue to pray for a move of God not just for the virus, but for the spiritual state of our land.  Will you join me in praying for revival in the UK and also in the world?  Will you seek God with all your heart because that is when God reveals himself?  Remember no matter how weak you feel, God sees you as a mighty warrior and stands with you in the battle.  If we have him, we have all we need. We are living in an unusual yet wonderful time, a time where we could see revival happen.  Are you longing to see God move?  Are you ready to pray?

 

PRAYER POINTS FOR FRIDAY 26th JUNE:-     

 

  • We have much to thank God for – the number of deaths continue to go down. The numbers of those in hospital continue to fall too.  In our own local hospital here in Bristol there’s seemingly no Covid19 patients left.  Let’s continue to pray that we will get to the point where there are no further deaths from this virus. This means that the restrictions can be lifted too which is wonderful for so many of us.  From July we can now meet with another household and this can be a different household each time.  We can also meet inside and outside.  Do continue to pray that the R Rate will be kept under 1 – at present it is between 0.7 – 0.9.  Pray too that the number of people encountering the virus will continue to fall.

 

  • I was so excited to see today that unity was more evident at the Prime Minister’s questions. The opposition leader not only agreed with the government about the way ahead, but also thanked him for what they were doing and said they were doing a good job.  What a difference our prayers are making.  Let’s continue to pray for those who serve in government and in the opposition parties.  Pray that the media would not try and divide as it so often does, but that it would report well with honesty and add to the unity we are seeing rather than working against it.  Pray too for the media in the USA and in various other places in our world that they would have integrity and report accurately.  Pray that the Prime Minister and his government and every leader of whatever party will recognise their need of God’s help in tackling the many difficult issues they are facing each day.  Indeed, pray for national leaders all over the world.  Let your heart continue to cry God soaked prayers for our land.

 

 

  • Let’s continue to praise God for the NHS and for all who work in the caring professions all over the world. So many of them deserve a medal for all they have done.  Pray for their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health as we come out of lockdown.  Many may find that they need healing of their memories for some of the things they have seen in the selfless work they have done.  Some have lost their lives because of their amazing dedication.  Let’s continue to pray for their families and all they have left behind.  Pray that their grief doesn’t turn into bitterness.  Pray for many to come to know God and turn to him for their help and strength at this time.

 

  • Let’s praise God for the businesses that are now able to open because of the reduction in the 2-metre rule. Pray for the restaurants and pubs that are opening soon.  Pray that they will find safe ways of opening and pray success and favour upon them.  Pray for the economy and for those businesses trying to recover after a long shut down.  Pray for those working in places that are as yet not allowed to open – like gyms and spas and nail salons.  Pray that the businesses will still be able to retain their staff. Pray for those who have lost their jobs -my own son lost his job this week and my niece a couple of weeks earlier.  Pray that all who have lost jobs will find work soon and that they will know God’s hand in thatPray too for the events, theatre and entertainment industry.  This industry has been hit so hard and as yet, there is no clear pathway back and no clear support either.  Already there have been redundancies and many self-employed are struggling.  Let’s pray for hope, but also for clear instruction to be given from the government so there’s a plan and support for these industries.  Praise God that some pupils have been able to go back to school, but let’s pray for all pupils that they will not have problems in their learning because of the lockdown.  Pray that each pupil will find creative ways of learning at home too.  Pray for all workers everywhere – many of whom are finding life so difficult.  Pray that in this time God will invade their dreams and many will find God at this time. 

 

 

  • Many are still struggling with mental and emotional problems and a lot of that is coming from the fact that they feel so insecure as to whether or not they will have a job. Both my niece and my son lost their jobs recently.  Do pray that they and others like them find what they should be doing in life.  Pray to for people’s mental health.  Pray the peace of Jesus on them all. His peace is the peace that passes all understanding.  Pray for his presence to come on them particular at night when they sleep.  Pray for good and positive dreams and ones that lead to God rather than away from him.  Fear and worry if not checked can eventually lead to ill health and some have even died because of the fear and concerns they have.  Let’s pray against this and pray that they find the Prince of Peace.  Let’s pray for our families, friends, neighbours and fellow citizens to recognise the wonderful blessings that only God can provide.

 

  • The Prime Minister has told us that churches can now hold services again from July 4th, this is good news – albeit without singing and with social distancing, but let’s pray that churches will not just go back to normal. Let’s pray that they will remember all those who have attended a church online and who will even now never darken the door of a church, but they will listen online.  Pray that church leaderships will have wisdom and vision to have both normal and online church services.  We are reaching so many who now attend church in their pyjamas and are hearing the good news we carry!  It is also good news that marriages can now take place albeit with only 30 guests, but this is still good news for all those who wanted to get married this year.  Praise God for good news and let’s pray for more.  I noticed that in their talks this week, the government and the scientists have stressed that they are expecting the virus to raise his head again in the autumn/winter period.  Let’s pray for the eradication of this virus and that the second wave will not cause the destruction we have seen over the last number of months.  It’s interesting to note that the scientists are not expecting the virus to disappear at all, they believe the only way ahead is a vaccine, but that’s without the power of our God.  In Egypt God removed the plaques when Moses prayed – and he can do it again in his time, if we pray with faith.  God is not limited in power.  Remember God’s agenda is that none perish, physically and spiritually.     

 

 

  • As I mentioned in my first paragraph, let’s continue to pray for revival. More than ever we need God to bring a spiritual awakening to our world.  Let’s pray “Lord, bring revival and start with me!”  Pray for yourself, your family, your neighbours, your town, your city, your area, your country and our world.  Let’s pray for revival for us all.  We don’t need to wonder whether this is on the heart of God or not, God wants to move in power and to bring a move of his Spirit across our land.  So, “God we cry to you to move in power and to start with me!  Reveal yourself to me and to us all.  Soak me in your presence and may many want and desire your presence more than ever before.  Lord let us cry tears of repentance but also tears of joy at seeing you move so much in our land.  Come Lord and Heal our Nation…https://soundcloud.com/nancygoudie/heal-our-nation   We have an opportunity now that we may not have again.  So, don’t delay, but cry with everything within you for God to move in power in the UK and in our world.

I saw a photo on Facebook recently of a street preacher calling people to repentance and several people in the crowd kneeling to accept Jesus into their lives.  People are hungry, but we need to pray and be ready for the opportunities when they come….and they will.  Let’s be in the golden waterfall of his Spirit and let’s be soaked in him; it’s not a chore, it’s a privilege!  If you feel seeking God is a chore then perhaps can I kindly suggest that you have never really known him.  When you fall in love, you cannot get enough of the one you love.  The same is even more true about when you fall in love with our amazing, incredible God.  It’s certainly not a chore, it’s a delight.  Let’s soak ourselves in him and make ourselves ready for all he wants to do.  Let’s hear, obey and trust him like never before. 

Let’s pray – our prayers may be weak, but he is strong.  Let’s join with others in the Bible, like Gideon, Moses, Esther and many others who didn’t see themselves as mighty warriors, but God did.  You are a mighty warrior and through you and your prayers God is doing so much more than you could ever ask or even imagine.  If God can do things through a 16 year old boy in the Hebridean islands then he can do just as much through you.  Let’s listen to God and not the enemy, let’s believe God.  Remember, you are amazing and your prayers can move mountains.  Woohoo!  Let’s get praying!  With love to you all – NANCY GOUDIE  

 

 

 

Prayer points for Friday 19th June 2020

Setting the scene

On 20th March I called for a National Day of Prayer, not only for the UK, but also for others who live further afield.  A few days after it was over two friends contacted me and asked if I would do a National Prayer Day every Friday, and asked if I would continue to give some pointers each week for prayer.  After prayer, I took up the challenge of doing just that.  Please listen to my original video calling for prayer if you haven’t heard it already – it sets the scene for what we would want to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_w9dLCcSOY

Whilst watching the news this week I heard a weather presenter show us a picture that had been sent in of a storm that had happened in the UK.  It was showing a lightning strike and a rainbow at the same time.  He said, “It was interesting how the rainbow was showing at the same time as the storm.”  Immediately I felt God speak and say, “I am always with you in the storms.” it reminded me that through the many storms that we experience in life, God is always there with his promises.  His promises never fail and he will never leave us in the middle of the storm.  His promises are Yes and Amen! (2 Corinthians 1:20).  No matter what we go through his promises and his presence remain.  How we need to hear that right now right in the middle of the storm of Covid 19 and also the racism we are seeing throughout the world.  God loves us all.  We are all precious in his sight and his promises are available to all.  Let’s stand on the promises of our great and wonderful God.  Let’s lean on him knowing that the everlasting arms surround each of us (Deuteronomy 33:27).  The eternal God is our refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms.  He will drive out your enemy before you, saying “Destroy him!”

Let’s trust in our mighty God to drive out Covid 19 with a word.  Let’s trust him to destroy and kill this virus and heal our world.  Let’s put ourselves and our families into the hands of the mighty God knowing that we are safe in his love and secure in his promises.  Remember when the storm rages, the rainbow declares the promises of God.

 

PRAYER POINTS FOR FRIDAY 19th JUNE:-     

  • Praise God that the numbers of deaths are continuing to going down and also praise God for the medication that has been proven to reduce the death rate with those who have already got the virus. What a breakthrough this week!  Praise God that this low-cost pill is available for all.   Let’s continue to pray for the death rate to fall even more until there are no deaths at all in the UK and indeed in the world.  Do pray despite the shops opening up that the R rate will be kept under 1.  Pray too that those getting infected by the virus every day will fall also.

 

  • Let’s continue to pray for unity for our government – there are so many conflicting voices – some from the media and some from the opposition. Let’s pray for a united fight against this Coronavirus.  Continue to pray for the safety and for good health for our Prime Minister and his government.  Pray that every MP will be given integrity and wisdom.  Pray that each one will recognise that they need God’s help in tackling the many difficult issues they are facing each day.  Boris Johnson, the government and the opposition parties all need our prayers whether they recognise it or not.  Pray for national leaders all over the world.  Let your heart continue to cry God soaked prayers for our land.

 

  • Let’s continue to thank God for the NHS and for all who work in it. Let’s pray for Care homes and their staff too.  Each one, as I have said before, deserves a medal.  They have gone above and beyond the call of duty.  Some have lost their lives because of their amazing dedication.  Let’s pray for their families and all they have left behind.  Pray that their grief doesn’t turn into bitterness.  We so appreciate everyone who has served in this crisis so tirelessly.  Pray that each of them will know God’s hand in helping them deal with each situation as it arises.  Pray that many will find the Lord through this.  Pray against the massive strain it has been on their emotional and mental health.  Pray for many to come to know God and turn to him for their help and strength at this time.

 

  • Let’s praise God that most businesses have been able to open up and some school years have been able to go back to school. Pray for the economy and for those businesses trying to recover after a long shut down.  Pray also that the young people at schools feel secure and safe there and that they enjoy their last few weeks before their holidays.  Let’s praise God that the government have changed their minds on the issue of school meals through the summer.  This will help many families hugely.  It’s so good to be able to look after those who are finding things so difficult financially through this crisis.  Pray for the children still at home that God would protect their mental health and wellbeing as they have longer without being with friends and in their normal school environment.  Pray also for those in the Music, Arts and Entertainment business as they have been hit so much during this crisis.  Theatres and music venues have been closed and those who are normally employed in this business are finding that they don’t have any jobs at present.  Do pray for them physically, mentally and ask God to provide for them financially.  So many are finding life so tough at present.

 

  • Pray for the health and for the financial situations of each individual. So many are struggling in both of these areas.  Fear and worry and then lead to difficult mental problems.  Let’s pray for our nation to turn to the Lord who can provide health, wholeness and finance to us all.  As we know our God owns the cattle on a thousand hills and we know he doesn’t get stressed about any kind of lack.  Let’s pray for people to turn to our miraculous God and ask him to provide what they need.  The UK government have provided for us at this time by supplying money to the self-employed and also to businesses so that the majority of those in work can keep their jobs.  This is wonderful, but our God is much more generous and can provide everything we need.  Let’s pray for ourselves and also for our families, friends, neighbours and fellow citizens to recognise the wonderful blessings that only God can provide and let’s be thankful and grateful for all we receive from whatever source.

 

  • We continue to stand and speak out against racism in any shape or form. Please pray for this to be stamped out completely across the world.  Pray against all the unrest we are seeing in our world and pray for peace.  Pray for our government that they will put plans in place to see racism end in this nation.  Continue to pray and repent on behalf of the white community – we have so often misrepresented God’s love to our world.   Pray for healing for all.  Pray also for hope in the midst of hopelessness.  Pray for those whose battles are behind closed doors – there are still many who are being abused and damaged by others during this time.  Pray that what is happening will be exposed and help will be given.  Pray for healing of all these hurts and pains.

 

  • More than ever, let’s pray for revival. Pray for supernatural dreams and visions in the night.  Pray that people will recognise God moving in their lives.  Use the song, Heal our Nation  https://soundcloud.com/nancygoudie/heal-our-nation to pray for God to move in power.  We have an opportunity now to pray and ask God to move in power in the UK and in our world.  Let’s pray and not give up – because as it says in 2 Chronicles 15:7 – But as for you be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.  We will see what we are looking and yearning for.  We will see the rainbow after the storm.  Let’s pray:

Lord, we long for You to move in power;
There’s a hunger deep within our hearts,
To see healing in our nation.
Send Your Spirit to revive us:

Heal our nation,
Heal our nation,
Heal our nation,
Pour out Your Spirit on this land.

Lord we hear Your Spirit, coming closer,
A mighty wave to break upon our land,
Bringing justice, and forgiveness.
God we cry to You, ‘Revive us’

  • Every time you wash your hands, which should be often – then pray a ‘Heal Our Nation’ prayer – sing or speak the lyrics of ‘Heal our Nation’ and ask God to pour out his Spirit on this land. ‘Heal our Nation, Heal our Nation, Heal our Nation, pour out your Spirit on this land.’  Sing or speak that twice.  And finish with the first line from the verse ‘Lord we long for you to move in power’ – and ask God to move in the UK but also move in our world.  https://soundcloud.com/nancygoudie/heal-our-nation
  • Keep reading Psalm 91, Psalm 121 and Psalm 46 to encourage yourself and your family with the truth of the word of God.

What a joy it has been to pray for those who have asked for prayer in recent weeks.  Remember if you or others need prayer do drop us an email and we will pray.  Don’t forget our prayer line if you or others need prayer – prayer@ngm.org.uk 

Let’s continue to praise God for all he is doing during this crisis.  Let’s open our spiritual eyes as Jesus encourages us to do in John 4:35 and see that the fields are ripe for harvest.  Let’s get involved in what he is doing around us.  Let’s not miss his kindness and his love at this time.  Let’s soak ourselves in him and discover more and more his presence.  We are living in an unprecedented time of grace, so let’s open our eyes and see a move of God like never before.  Our God has no restrictions on him, so look and see the ways he is moving and see how you can get involved.  You may not know how to get involved, but the truth is each of us can be involved by praying.  You might think that you are not a prayer warrior, but the truth is as I have said many times, if you can talk, you can pray.  Our prayers might be weak, but our God is strong.  Join in with many thousands of others across the world as we pray for God to heal our nation and heal our world.  Never let the enemy tell you that you are not effective, because you are effective!  You are amazing and your prayers can move mountains.  Woohoo!  Let’s get praying!  With love to you all – NANCY GOUDIE  

Prayer Points for Friday 12th of June 2020

Setting the scene

On 20th March I called for a National Day of Prayer, not only for the UK, but also for others who live further afield.  A few days after it was over two friends contacted me and asked if I would do a National Prayer Day every Friday, and asked if I would continue to give some pointers each week for prayer.  After prayer, I took up the challenge of doing just that.  Please listen to my original video calling for prayer if you haven’t heard it already – it sets the scene for what we would want to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_w9dLCcSOY

 With all that is going on in our world, the one thing we need to do is to keep close to the God of all hope.  Don’t lose your hope – look at the world through the God of hope!  Jesus told us to look at the world with our eyes open – not with our natural eyes, but with our spiritual eyes (John 4:35).  Keep your spiritual eyes open.  Look to the God of hope who fills us with all joy and peace right in the middle of our storm, right in the middle of our battle, right in the middle of our mess.  Never let go of the God of hope.  As it says in Romans 15:13 – May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  He is our only way through.  It’s because of who He is, that we can sing in the middle of our storm!

 I was listening to a song this morning and felt that I should share it with you.  It’s a song called Raise a Hallelujah – I feel in the midst of this horrible virus and also with the protests – peaceful or otherwise – the violence and the deaths we have seen, we should do what the song says and Raise a Hallelujah in the middle of the storm.  As I mentioned last week, it’s when the singers were sent out at the head of the army to sing their Hallelujahs that God did a miracle.  So, today in the middle of our storm, let’s raise our voices in praise and see this battle won.  Let’s keep remembering that God is for us and with us and that as we raise our voices and praise him despite the storms we are in, God will win this battle for us.  We have seen so many wonderful things happen as we have prayed, so let’s not give up now, let’s continue to praise our amazing God right in the middle of the battle.   Here are the lyrics, but when you hear the story behind this song, I’m sure it will encourage you to hang on to the God of hope and see the enemy defeated.  Check out the story and the song on this link: https://youtu.be/awkO61T6i0k

I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, Heaven comes to fight for me

I’m gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive

I raise a hallelujah, with everything inside of me
I raise a hallelujah, I will watch the darkness flee
I raise a hallelujah, in the middle of the mystery
I raise a hallelujah, fear you lost your hold on me

Sing a little louder
In the presence of my enemies
Sing a little louder
Louder than the unbelief
Sing a little louder
My weapon is a melody
Sing a little louder
Heaven comes to fight for me

I raise a hallelujah

 

PRAYER POINTS FOR FRIDAY 12th JUNE:-     

  • Let’s raise a hallelujah that the death rate is continuing to fall. On Monday we were told that the virus is on the decline in the UK – let’s pray for this to continue to happen.  On Tuesday we were told that the deaths in the UK are now down to the lowest level since the beginning of the crisis.  All this is good news.  Let’s continue to pray that we will get to the place soon when there are no more precious lives taken because of this virus.  Let’s continue to praise God that the R Rate is still below 1 in all areas of the UK and pray that it remains that way despite the lockdown being released.  Let’s pray that people will continue to social distance and adhere to the government guidelines.  Pray too that those infected by the virus will fall also.

 

  • Let’s continue to pray for unity for our government – as well as integrity and wisdom. Whatever your political views, remember that the Bible tells us to pray for those in authority over us.  They desperately need our prayers whether they recognise it or not.  Pray that they do recognise the need for people to pray and for God to reveal wisdom to them.   Pray for all MP’s in every party.  Pray that Christian MP’s would rise up and bring God’s wisdom at this time.  Let your heart continue to cry God soaked prayers for the government and for the opposition parties too.  Pray for unity in fighting this virus together.

 

  • Let’s raise a hallelujah and praise God for the NHS and for all those who work in it. Pray for doctors, nurses, carers, cleaners, reception staff etc.  Each one has put their life on the line throughout this crisis.  Pray for good health and strength for them all whether they work in hospitals or in care homes.  Continue to pray for the families of those who have died and for the families who have not been able to see their loved one because of the risk of them passing on the virus.  Pray that they will soon be able to go home safely.  Pray against the massive strain it has been on their emotional and mental health.  Pray for many to come to know God and turn to him for their help and strength at this time.

 

  • Let’s raise a hallelujah and praise God that we have been able to open up most businesses, shops and some schools. Let’s pray that as this happens that the infection rate would not rise and would stay below 1.  Pray for safety for all the school children and that they would enjoy going back to school at this time.  Pray against fear in any of the pupils, parents or teachers.  Pray against anxiety at this time.  Pray that everyone will take the right precautions in opening up shops, businesses and schools.  Pray for the children still at home that God would protect their mental health and wellbeing as they have longer without being with friends and in their normal school environment. 

 

  • Pray for those who are lonely. We have been hearing of people dying in their homes during this crisis and no one knowing that this has happened.  Pray that neighbours and relatives and friends would check up on people who live alone.  As someone who lives alone, I so value my friends and family at this time.  Pray that people will have eyes to see the loneliness in others.  Pray that each lonely person would be so aware of the presence of God with them.  Pray that no one else would have to die alone.  I am thrilled to see that the Government has now arranged bubbles so that a household of one can meet with their family from this Saturday.  Let’s thank God for this as this will help some who are lonely at this time. 

 

  • Pray against all the unrest we are seeing in our world at this time. Pray against racism, injustice, pain and the many hurts and fears that have been highlighted at this time.  Pray for peace.  Pray for joy.  Pray for good to come from this time.  Continue to pray and repent on behalf of the white community who have so often misrepresented God’s love to our world.   Pray for healing for all.  Pray for hope in the midst of hopelessness.  Pray for those whose battles are behind closed doors – many are being abused and damaged by others during this time.  Pray that what is happening will be exposed and help will be given.  Pray for healing of all these hurts and pains.

 

  • Let’s raise a hallelujah and praise our God that in the middle of this crisis that God is moving and working and that he wants us to get involved. Let’s pray like never before for revival.  Let’s get soaked in his presence and let the pure gold of who he is to soak into us.  Let’s pursue God like never before and yearn to know him more.  Let’s open our spiritual eyes and see the many wonderful and incredible things that God is doing at this time.  Let’s pray for his will to be done on this earth as it is in Heaven.  Let’s remind ourselves that we already have the victory and that our God is big and strong.  Encourage each other and build each other up as it tells us to do in 1 Thessalonians 5:11.  Pray for our nation and for the nations of the world – pray and do not give up – pray for healing, for peace, for joy and most of all for revival.  This is an important time – let’s not miss what God is doing.  If all we have after this crisis is over is a list of what films we have seen on TV or Netflix, then we will have missed what God is doing at this time.  Let’s not miss it – let’s raise our hallelujah!

Prayer Points for Friday 5th June 2020

Setting the scene

On 20th March I called for a National Day of Prayer, not only for the UK, but also for others who live further afield.  A few days after it was over two friends contacted me and asked if I would do a National Prayer Day every Friday, and asked if I would continue to give some pointers each week for prayer.  After prayer, I took up the challenge of doing just that.  Please listen to my original video calling for prayer if you haven’t heard it already – it sets the scene for what we would want to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_w9dLCcSOY

 

I am writing this when the news is filled with protests, violence and riots not just in the USA, but also in our own nation and nations across the world.  Racism should never be accepted, in any shape or form.  However, what many of us have not understood is how deep the pain and hurt is that many people carry every day in their own hearts.  I look at the faces of people on the TV, as they pour out their hurt, anger and confusion in their tears and in their words.  My own heart cries against the injustice we are seeing every day.  Let’s pray for our world, but also let’s remember that the enemy is behind all of this.  He wants to divide so let’s pray as Jesus prayed in John 17 for immense unity in our world.  Our world is in pain, many are hurting, crying, in fear, lonely and hitting out at whoever is in their way.  Instead of criticizing what we see, let’s pray for peace, but not just a shallow peace, instead let’s pray for a deep peace – the kind that passes all understanding.  Remember the enemy comes to kill and destroy, but our God comes to bring a completely different Spirit.  One of love, peace, yet filled with immense power.  Power to change things from within so that there is a completely different heart and mindset – lets pray for those things for our world.

 

As I said last week, let’s soak ourselves in the Lord and take up the task of praying, knowing that when the enemy spits venom, the Lord opens his mouth as the Lion of Judah and all he needs to do is to roar.  Let’s hear the roar of the Lion of Judah in our mind and heart as we pray strong prayers – remembering that the weakest saint on his knees shakes the enemy with fear.

 

Let’s not forget that our battle/struggle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, powers and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Let’s remember as it says in 2 Cor 10: that we do not wage war as the world does.  The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world, on the contrary they have divine power to demolish strongholds.  Let’s fight this battle with the Lord on our knees…let’s pray like never before.

 

Let’s do what King Jehoshaphat did when facing a strong, vast and violent army, he sent out the singers first to praise God and as they sang their songs of praise, God won the battle.  God told them that the battle was not theirs but was his (2 Chronicles 20:15).  So, let’s sing Heal Our Nation – https://soundcloud.com/nancygoudie/heal-our-nation over our nation and over our world and remember that God is fighting this battle for us and that victory is ours.  Praise God.   

 

PRAYER POINTS FOR FRIDAY 5th JUNE:-       

  • Let’s praise God that the death rate continues to fall. In the region I live in yesterday there was only one death because of Coronavirus.  Let’s pray we get to the place where there are no more precious lives taken because of this terrible virus.  Let’s continue to praise God that the R Rate is still below 1 and pray that it remains that way even though many of the businesses, shops, schools etc., are all opening up.  For many of us it might seem that everything is opening up a little too quickly, so let’s pray that the virus does not take hold again.  Let’s pray that people will continue to social distance and adhere to the government guidelines.  Let’s pray as the rules are relaxed, that all will be well and that we will see no more people infected and no more heartache.

 

  • Let’s continue to pray for the government – pray for integrity and wisdom. The Bible tells us to pray for those in authority over us and how we need to pray for Boris Johnson and his cabinet and all the MP’s in our government right now.  Pray for unity.  Pray for health and strength for them all.  As I said last week, continue to pray for them as though they were your own family.  They need our prayers, whether they recognise it or not.  Pray that those who are Christians would stand up at this time and speak out words of wisdom.  You can see on the faces of the government the huge strain that they are under, so leave aside your politics and pray sincerely for them.  Extend compassion, kindness and grace even if you don’t agree with every decision they make. Let your heart cry God soaked prayers for the government and for the opposition parties too.  Pray for unity in fighting this virus together.

 

  • Let’s praise God for the NHS and for all those who work in it. Pray for doctors, nurses, carers, cleaners, reception staff etc.  Pray for health and strength for all who work in hospitals or care homes.  They have had to bear the brunt of all that has happened and they all deserve a medal.  Many have paid with their lives because of this virus.  Let’s pray for their families some of whom have had to deal with their deaths.  Pray for families who have had to deal with not seeing their loved one who works at the NHS or in a care home because they cannot risk giving the virus to them.  Pray for good health and strength for all involved.  Pray against the massive strain it has been on their emotional and mental health.  May they all come to know God and turn to him for their help and strength at this time. Pray for supernatural visits from God in their dreams.

 

  • Let’s praise God for all the keyworkers in supermarkets, in shops, those who work in the police force, those who collect our rubbish etc. Pray for God’s strength for them and pray they will feel valued for what they are doing.  Let’s also pray for teachers – schools are opening this week and there are a lot of questions about this from everyone.  How is it going to work, will it be safe etc.  Pray for safety for the children and that neither the teachers or the children will pass on the virus to each other or to others at home.  Pray that the anxiety over the schools returning will turn people to pray for God’s help.

 

  • Pray for those who are in the black or Asian communities who seem to be higher at risk from the virus. The scientists don’t really know why this is the case but pray for them, pray for their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual needs.  Pray for them during this time and pray protection on them all.  Pray for the hurts and the pain that will have been highlighted because of all that has happened recently in America.  Pray for justice to prevail and for an end to racism at any level in every country.  Pray that the protests in the USA and in other countries will be peaceful and not continue to turn into riots and anger.  Spend quality time praying and repenting on behalf of the white community who have so often misrepresented God’s love to our world.

 

  • Let’s continue to pray for those who have been abused and damaged by the lockdown we have had. Many are crying behind closed doors.  Pray for them that they will know that their tears are seen by Heaven but also understood by those who can help.  Pray for hope for the hopeless and pray for those struggling with mental health.  Pray too for many who have not been able to see their plans and dreams for 2020 come into being.  For those who had planned to get married this year and now cannot have the wedding of their dreams.  Pray for any unfulfilled expectations that this year may have brought – sometimes this can leave you feeling hopeless, hurt and confused.  Pray that many will discover that God cares about these things and that out of something so bad, he will bring something so good.  Pray for hope in the midst of hopelessness.  Many have been using our email prayer link – it’s been our privilege here at ngm to pray – so do remember to share the prayer link with those who need prayer – prayer@ngm.org.uk

 

  • Pray for our nation and for the nations of the world – there have been so many thousands of deaths across the world – almost 40,000 in the UK – many are in mourning. Pray that as they mourn, they will be comforted and they will know that God stands with them in their mourning.  Pray for peace – the peace that passes all understanding to fall upon them.  Pray for revival – pray that God will continue to move in supernatural power as we pray.  Dare to believe that your prayers are making a massive difference – because the truth is – they are!  Remember the devil shakes with fear when he sees the weakest saint on their knees.  He hates prayer because he knows how much can be accomplished through it – so he will tell you that your prayers will not accomplish much, but they do.  Let’s not listen to the enemy – and dare to press forward in prayer – let’s dare to pray revival prayers for our nation and for our world.

We have such an important job right now to be of a different Spirit – to be so soaked in the presence of God that people cannot fail to see his love, his grace, his compassion, his kindness and his peace.  Soak yourselves in the word of God, fill your mind with his words and not with the words from the TV.  Let’s pursue our God in the waterfall of his Spirit and see the pure gold of his presence fall on us all.  Oh, there is no better place to be.  For those who may be interested in going deeper with us here at ngm – we have a breakthrough session happening on 30th June online. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/x/nancy-goudies-spiritual-health-breakthroughs-online-june-30th-tickets-105943818814 We’d love you to join us so that we can all see a God breakthrough in each of us.    

I cannot express just how incredible our God is – I am so grateful to him that we are never on our own – we are surrounded by him all the time.  Keep praying, keep seeking him, keep being engulfed in him – there is no better place to be.  Remember the Lord is awesome and you are incredible – NANCY GOUDIE
