If we want to see our land and its people thrive, walk with the knowledge and peace of knowing God as Father, then we need to invest in the future. We need to sow seeds of prayer into and over our land, the place we live. We need to call what is not yet, into being. We have friends, who over the decades have been faithfully walking and praying over this land and its communities.
In 2018, we were given a prophecy that the time was now to release the vision given in 2009 and to start organising a prayer walk along the South Downs in 2020. This is a c100 mile walk through beautiful countryside, overlooking the land, to the north, and the sea to the south. One end in the city of Winchester, the other by Beachy Head and the town of Eastbourne. We feel there is huge spiritual significance is linking these two places together; thanking God for this place and praising his name in the high places of this land.
Walking the land
We have been working as a team to organise 5 days of prayer walking, starting simultaneously with two groups, one in Eastbourne and the other in Winchester, to walk and pray over the South Downs. Each day we will gather and prayer walk two section of around 6 to 10 miles along the Downs pausing at key points to pray.
The invitations is for all to join, whether as individuals, small groups or entire churches, to sign up. This can be for one particular section (maybe your local area), all 5 days or anything in between!
Gathering as one
On the Saturday, in unity we will come together for the afternoon, to walk up to Chanctonbury Ring, the almost central point, share food, pray and worship God and share communion.
In Hebrews 11, we see the men and women of old commended for living by faith, investing in this earth, but looking for their reward in the heavenly realm. In a similar way we are looking to Awaken the Land for God’s glory, not only here, but to pass the flame of revival on to others in the United Kingdom and around the world. To unify all trinitarian churches and bless the communities and land in which they live.
Our heart is to change culture, not put an event on, we need the church community to join with us and seek Father’s heart and release His blessing on this place and, in faith, call it into being.
