CHANGED BY JESUS TO CHANGE THE WORLD
See what God is saying to His people right now….
GOD IS AT WORK
The walls of the world may closet us in darkness
As the plague spews out its sickness
Spiraling man into a vortex of fear and despair
We may feel that our lives have contracted
That we have become constricted and confined
Existing within our individual cocoons
But the halls of heaven are ablaze with light
The mystery of heavenly joy is strengthening fainting souls
The wisdom of the Word is plumbing and piercing broken lives
The glory of grace is meeting groaning hearts
God’s doors are not closing
They are opening
The Lord is working out His divine purposes
A harvest of souls is being sown
Be glad, be very glad
The Lord is sovereign
The Lord is reigning
Jesus is alive!

In my dream, I was at King’s Church and I was looking for a bathroom. I went to the toilet room and when i enter the room it was changed to the big kitchen. Then I saw a lot of people from different diversity preparing meal & they were working really hard & in my sprit I just knew it was for King’s Youth. I said this is amazing & some one told me your daughter will get some too. And then I saw Rich Horne was working really hard too.
I think God is going to bring transformation, especially in our youth. For me the toilet room been changed to the new kitchen means it is restoration or renewing of God people. We are His building & His Holy temple. I am really exited to see that in our Town were God called us. Be encouraged & keep praying, expecting miracles to happen in our church. I am praying to see revival in high Wycombe.

I had a picture: it was of a cocoon. I felt the Lord was saying to me that we are, as a church and individuals, in a cocoon situation. Confined. Constrained. Perhaps even feeling lifeless. Dead even. But I felt the Lord saying that actually in the cocoon there is something creative going on. It is not a stagnant situation, even if, at times, we long to escape out of it. God is at work in this cocoon situation, in this apparently confined and limited situation there is something creative and wonderful going on and that the church will emerge more beautiful and full of grace and life than before. I puzzled over this as I don’t understand how something apparently bad can produce something wonderful and I felt the Lord reminding me of this:“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways ,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-10 NIV)It made me realise that I can’t expect to understand all that is going on, but to trust the Lord that he is still marvellously at work. Ron Lamb (13 October 2020)
Do you struggle with what we get told in the news too? Fear, fear, fear for this and fear for that. No, today I make a stand along with God’s word: ‘Do not fear, for I have redeemed you. I have summoned you by name, you are mine’. That leaves no room for fear, does it! Heddi Wood (20 September 2020)
Reading Sunday’s passage: John 14v12-21 I realised when I read v13 “and I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that my Father may be glorified in the Son” my reaction is one of hurt and anger and disbelief due to the unanswered prayers for people I love who don’t believe in Jesus, which I realise is a barrier in my relationship with him.
Through the time this morning I finally understood that ‘in my name’ means according to His character and will. (and not just using ‘in Jesus name’ at the end of a prayer to hope it gives it more power!)
So as we seek Jesus sincerely, “…the spirit of truth will live in us and on that day we will realise that we are in Jesus and He is in us.”
This led to me picturing a tuning fork picking up a harmonic with our prayers resonating to the spirit of God. My prayer is this: That we can be like a tuning fork – through the spirit of God living in us, that we can pick up this resonance and pray in line with His will, and as we do this we will see answers to our prayers.

I was listening to the words of this song by Elevation worship whilst I was praying:
We want You, Lord
Like never before
Your presence is an open door
So come now, Lord
Like never before
I know breakthrough is coming
By faith I see a miracle
My God made me a promise
And it won’t stop now
I felt a sense of anticipation that God is moving and that He is bringing breakthrough. We should prepare for Him to move – and we should seek His face. He wants us to draw near to Him – He is waiting to meet with every single one of us. This is for all of us, God does not show partiality – He is waiting to pour out His Spirit on each of us – and He is saying “Come And meet with me, draw near to me.” Charlie Graham (13 September 2020)
Our God is not a God of despondency, but a God of hope…
2 Corinthians 4: “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed…. we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself…. Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” John Harbour (11 September 2020)
Christ wants the church to grow so that we can go into the community and bring in those he is calling spreading the word to everyone that they also may know his love, peace and forgiveness. Emmanuel Asafo-Agyei (8 September 2020)
Revival begins with us, with allowing the Holy Spirit to search our hearts, let him Shine his light, we confess, have a good clear out and receive a fresh filling of Him. Psalm 24:4-6. Jonathan Haydock (7 September 2020)
He said ‘Do not be afraid, for I am with you holding your hand as you curl up in the arms of Jesus. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength’ Caroline Picton (4 September 2020)
During the evening Zoom prayer meeting on 21st May, Richard gave the group time to listen to what the Lord might be saying to us. The words ‘new places’ came to me. I believe that during this time confined at home, our Father is taking us to new places, new places deep within ourselves, where we will commune with God in a new, deeper way than we’ve ever experienced before. God will use this time to speak to us, change us, free us and touch our hearts with a deeper love for others, especially for the lost.
When we are able to leave our homes again, He intends to take us to new places beyond ourselves, beyond what we have been comfortable with before, as we begin to be more outward-looking to the poor and needy. Heather Saunders (23 May 2020)
