Musing over what had happened to me just before awaking and as our daily prayers have returned to the beginning of 2012’s Keep Praying and Bless booklet, it seems the Lord may want me to republish the 70 days of decree and blessing over the British Isles:
Decree: I AM THE GATE
“Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of Glory may come in.” (Psalm 24:7)
We decree the gates of the Church, Government, Judiciary, Education, Commerce, Family and Media be opened, that Jesus Christ be enthroned to take His rightful place of rule and authority in every sphere of life.
Aaronic Blessing: The Lord bless you and keep you, The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you, The Lord lift up His countenance toward you and give you peace. Thus, we put His name upon you and He will bless you (Numbers 6:24-27).
We bless and welcome the King of Glory to rule and reign over the British Isles and Irish Republic.
Decrees and Blessing
The Keep Praying & Bless booklet produced for 2012 Olympic Games in London states, ‘The prayers in this guide are based upon the Name of God, the great ‘I AM’ and when we honour God’s Name He will reveal His glory. Each day we will declare a Name and aspect of God to make decrees and bless.
Job 2:28 tells us “Thou shalt decree a thing and it shall be established”. We are called to make heavenly decrees, decrees that will bring about divine justice. As with Jeremiah (1:10), our anointed words will uproot the forces of darkness and plant kingdom revelation.
We speak blessings because the Bible says that one of the roles of the priests (Levites) was to speak (not pray) blessings over people. We have become a kingdom of priests to our God and should take this privilege seriously.
My notes of Dr Stone’s Mentoring Day: Britain is at a Crossroad covers the principles of decrees in some depth.
