Prayer Walking

I don’t know whether you have ever been on a prayer walk or if not, have ever thought about doing one. If you haven’t and it’s new to you then I would encourage you to give it a go. I have found them a great opportunity to get out and about and see my local community where I live and work with fresh eyes. It’s an opportunity to ask God to show us what He sees so that our prayers can help to bring about transformation and change as He wants – His Kingdom to come.

It’s always amazing the things God shows us when we start to look with His eyes – I often have things drawn to my attention which I have never noticed before – I may have walked past them many times without even noticing them but then God draws my attention to them and I really see. Whilst, I may overlook things God never does – His eyes are even on the sparrow.

You can do a prayer walk on your own, in pairs or as part of a larger group. In my experience it is good to go in pairs because you can pray in agreement and also “bounce” things off each other as the Holy Spirit brings inspiration. However, I often prayer walk on my own and really enjoy it. Now that the lock down restrictions are easing at home, we will soon be able to go out and pray in groups again so perhaps, you might join a prayer walk around your local community or even start one. Spring is here – the season of new beginnings so perhaps this could be a new thing for you or you could be inspired to give it a go.

It’s not as daunting or difficult as it might sound and it’s not just for those we may consider the “prayer warriors” or the “super spiritual people” – it’s for us – the ordinary followers of Jesus, the everyday folk, that He enables by His power to do extraordinary things through Him. Most of us probably already go out regularly for walks and with a prayer walk you are just being purposeful. Before you set out simply ask God to show you things that He wants you to see and pray into them.

One way to help get you started, if you are a bit unsure of what to pray initially, is to simply ask God for His blessing and favour on your community. e.g if your walk takes you past your local school you can take a moment to ask God to bless the school, the children and the teachers. Thank God for the school and for the gift of education. If you already know of particular needs in that school or specific issues then you can bring them to God and ask for his help.

What changes would you like to see in your local community?- How would you like to shape it for God. Jesus went out and about doing good and one of the ways that we can do good is to pray. When we go out we take God’s presence with us. We can be instruments to bring about change for good.

I am convinced that God will use you in amazing ways in your prayer walks. I have always been encouraged when I experience and see God at work during these times. The Lord has been reminding me this week about prayer walks and prayer drives I have been on in the past. It’s good to testify about these things and so in due course, I will add a page to my site with some testimonies of the things we have seen and experienced on our walks.

I just want to finish by encouraging you with this quick story. On one of the first prayer walks that I went on with a friend, I asked the Lord before we went if there was someone he wanted us to meet. If so, could he put them in our path. As we were walking around our community and praying, we met two police officers. They stopped us and asked us what we were doing. We clearly looked like suspicious characters 🤣. We explained and they were amazed that we cared enough about the local estate that we were out walking and praying. We asked if there was anything that we could pray about and they told us about some general issues on that particular estate with drugs, robberies, violence etc.

We then asked if we could thank God and pray for them. They agreed and we just said a very quick simple prayer. We just thanked God for them and blessed them. They were genuinely surprised that we were thanking God for them and the work they did. They were more used to people avoiding them and at times hostility and abuse. I believe God will take those little acts and seeds of faith and do something incredible.

Don’t worry if you don’t feel that you could pray for someone you meet on the street. Don’t let that put you off or get you anxious. You don’t have to do that as part of prayer walking. Most of the time no-one will realise that you are even praying as you walk. You may even surprise yourself one day as God gives you a new boldness and takes you along new paths of His presence.

I hope you are encouraged today to step out on your local streets and into your local parks and pray as the Lord leads you x bless you in Jesus name.

Overcoming the Giants

This is an encouraging word which I received from the Lord last week during a prayer vigil. I hope it is an encouragement for you as well. I heard the Lord say to me:

I have brought My people to such a time and such a place as this. In the Spirit you are in a very wide place – can you see? As far as the eye can see is the territory that I am giving to you My children, it is yours. It is your glorious inheritance in Me. You will stretch far and wide – even beyond the horizon will your influence be felt. Your territory will be magnificent.

All that has stood in your way – the strongholds of the enemy will be demolished, pulled down and rooted out by My anointed ones. You will face your giants and you will overthrow them. The giants in your land are being overthrown. Giants of false religion, giants of wickedness, giants of rebellion, giants of depravity and filth, giants who take captives and feed on My people.

Enough is enough. My remnant, My faithful ones, My anointed ones – they will rise up with wings as Eagles and they will drive out the enemy from this territory.


I am bringing a fresh anointing of My Holy Spirit upon you. The wind of My Spirit is going to blow and propel you into places you have never been before in the physical and in the spiritual realm.

This is the day of the Lord. Rejoice and be glad for your King has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

My blessed and beloved ones. My angels are encamped all around you. I have sent them to help you and to carry out My commands. They will war with you and they are for you in the battle to evict the enemy from your territory.


All honour and glory and power belongs to the Lamb who sits upon the throne forever and ever. Amen and Amen. Let all who know the King say Amen.


Later as we prayed I saw a vision of an angel in the Spirit. He had a scroll tied with red ribbon in his right hand and in his left hand he had a trumpet. He was blowing the trumpet to awaken the people of God. I believe that this angel was sent to carryout God’s commands which were written in the scroll and which were in response to the prayers of the Saints. As the angel blew the trumpet, I saw the land of the nation being ploughed up and down its breadth and its length. I believe it was God’s Word and the prayers of the Saints which were breaking up the soil.

These verses which Peter spoke when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the day of Pentecost from the Prophet Joel were brought to my remembrance. I pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon us.

In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.”
Acts 2:16-18

Time of Separation

“This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth Matthew 13:49-50

Separation – this is the word that I heard from the Lord recently- the day of Separation. He spoke to me about His gathering angels. The angels who are sent from heaven to do His work. They know who is of God’s Kingdom and those who are not. God’s people are clearly marked. The ones who belong to Jesus and are His, who are reserved for Him are clearly recognisable. They bear the mark of Christ.

I was reminded of this scripture from Matthew 13 and the parables which Jesus taught about the day when those who are good and those who are bad will be separated. The separation of the wheat from the chaff at the time of harvest which Jesus talks about in the following parable.

The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. 27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’

28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ 29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”

Jesus went on to explain the parable so that we can understand:

“The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man (Jesus). 38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the people of the kingdom. The weeds are the people of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. (The gathering angels)

40 “As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. 42 They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.
Matthew 13:24-30,37-43

The Lord is reminding us through His Grace and Mercy that this day of separation will come. It will take place. There can be no “mixing” or “hybrid” in the Kingdom of God. It will be a clear separation. There is no middle ground. The wheat are those who belong to God’s Kingdom. His children will be separated from the children of the devil (the weeds). The father of lies who deceives the whole world.

There is a time of separation coming and the Lord is preparing His people. The Lord is reserving His people and will reserve them unto Himself for the days ahead, when the Anti-Christ and the Beast start to make their move, when they start to rise up and do what it is that they are purposed to do. The Lord knows that day and the season as all is planned in His time.

The Lord is also encouraging us to be patient and steadfast in Him. To patiently endure the times ahead. Let us not act hastily and make quick decision but wait patiently on God for His perfect will. I am reminded that it is the fool who rushes in. Those who are foolish will still refuse to believe the truth but those whose faith and trust is in God, they shall not be moved. Let us encourage each other to run the race of faith and not to turn back but to keep pressing in. We want to be people who are clearly recognisable as those who are of God’s kingdom, marked by Him (not with the false mark of the beast) and gathered in the day of separation. For the day of separation will surely come like a thief in the night.

I ask our Heavenly Father that there will be many who will respond to the gospel message in these days ahead before that day of separation comes. That their hearts will be softened and they will become a child of God. A true living child of the King released into all that He has for them.

God will not let His people down. God is speaking to His children in this hour and encouraging us to “Keep the faith”. Let us be those who pursue peace with all men and do not forget that love covers a multitude of sins.

Blessings to you this day in Jesus’ name.

Keep the home fires burning 🔥

Today we were encouraged to guard against apathy and allowing our love for Jesus to grow cold. As believers, we can be vulnerable to this at the moment because of not being able to meet together as easily (or at all for some people) because of the COVID restrictions. We can become discouraged by the lawlessness and wickedness we see around us, by false prophecies and words.

Let us watch out for each other and not become isolated and allow our fire to diminish but let us keep the bonds of love, encouraging each other with Palms, hymns, spiritual songs, teachings, words etc, and above all keep the fire burning within each one of us for Christ Jesus. Lord, I ask that you please breathe on the embers today and fan the flames into fire again.

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Hebrews 10:23-25

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:10-12

Believers are trying to come together in different ways at the present time whether it is over zoom, WhatsApp, FaceTime, teams, this platform or other ways to stay connected with each other. It is not easy and some may find it difficult but let’s not give up. We can reach out to each other in different ways. Where two or three are gathered together Christ is in the midst of us. Praise God. We are Christ’s body and connected to each other in and through Christ who is the head of us all.

I pray for those who may be feeling isolated or disconnected at the moment that you will know that you are still connected and to draw near to Him and He will draw near to you. If the Holy Spirit is convicting hearts of apathy or a lack of fire and zeal then I pray that repentance will come to our hearts and we will stir ourselves up and put our hands to the plough at this time. It is not wise for us to sit back and do nothing in these days.

The Lord is all sufficient for us in these present days. His grace is more than sufficient for us. The Lord is encouraging us to come to His table and eat and drink of His provision and not to leave the table until we are satisfied. When we eat our meals we know when we are full and the Lord wants us to know that same feeling of fullness in and through His Holy Spirit. He is a God of abundance. Let us fill ourselves up in Him. The Lord does not want us to be satisfied with crumbs but to come and feast at His table. We can also help feed each other out of the abundance that God gives to us.

When restrictions start lifting let us not to get distracted by the things which do not truly satisfy us. The Lord says “Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance.” Isaiah 55:2

May we use this time of confinement wisely and redeem the days God has blessed us with. May God refine us in His Holy Fire so that we are ready to do His will.

Let us keep the home fires burning 🔥
