Journey Into Wholeness were encouraged by the increase of intercessors for the event. It was good to pray with a specific focus and also pray for Colchester and our nation.
There were also 2 seminars facilitated by two different Christians, one entitled 'Spirit Space' about praying to Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit, another about healing in Jesus Name (I think? Please correct me if I'm wrong!) Although there were not hoards of people crowding into the seminars, Katy Smith and Penny were overjoyed at the interest and response of those who did. One lady opened up and shared some personal stories. Katy was able to pray with her and provide her with helpful information and contacts.
So yes! This weekend was another step in the right direction. We need to keep on persevering for more of God's Holy Spirit. We want to continue to hear Father God's voice for what to do next and where to go. We need to keep on following hard after Jesus Christ with knowledge that He is praing with us and for us.
Thank you to everyone praying with us for God's kingdom to come in power upon Colchester and its surrounding area.

Sounds dull, eh?
It was awesome.
The highlights for me were;
- worshipping and praying with more than 20 nations - a glimpse of God's kingdom coming, just great to be apart of this amazing body - the church.
- hearing amazing stories of what God is doing - 1200 people were prayed with and for in Ibiza this summer! International Day of Prayer goes global, after starting in Cape Town...and still there are no murders in Cape Town after people gathered and prayed! Kelly's story of being moved by God to go and pray for a prostitutes ghetto in Mexico, and after 15 months of prayer finally establishing prayer rooms and making good relationships there....so many stories.
- receiving encouragement and training to lead
- realising that I am a part of what God is doing, I am a part of this new chapter in the history of God's people
Do you want to be a part too? Come to the prayer room this weekend.
I'll share more soon of what I learnt.
This morning we prayed into 2 Kings 4: 1 -7. Come to the Lord and say "I have nothing, except..." and then offer the little that you have. And then see what He does!

Personally, Friday night was a night to watch people and situations. I found myself constantly asking the question, 'What can be done here?'
If you have a burning desire to develop a Holy Spirit filled presence of Jesus Christ's disciples on the town centre streets during a weekend night or any other night where most needed, I want to hear from you. I would really like to do something in collaboration with the Police and or other civic services to pray for people and meet their practical needs.
Please e-mail us or post a comment

"For those of you who don’t know, I’ve just been in Peru for around two and a half weeks working with Scripture Union building houses for street boys.
Thank you to all of those who were praying for me and the team while we were out there, it was an amazing time where we were really able to see God move, and see battles been taken and won. It was amazing for me to see all the promises God made me before I went away being fulfilled, a real example of his faithfulness to us.
Some of the work going on out there is truly incredible, and it’s amazing to see God working even in the most dire circumstances. Some of the things that the street boys have had to go through are truly horrific, but it’s amazing to see how happy they are once they’ve come to know the Father, and incredible to see the way there lives have turned around. Keep the boys in your prayers, as they need all the support possible, but thank you so much to all those that prayed for us, as it was a real encouragement to know we had that support, and I can assure you your prayers really helped our team as well so thank you."
