Thank you to the Lord and Ruth Grigg for this, courtesy UK Prophetic Words:
‘As I was praying for our government, the Lord began to speak to me. What the Lord showed me was that Mrs May will step down from leadership as soon as she manages to secure a deal and it is signed. (This is the reason she was appointed by God, to secure a Brexit deal). I sense the outcome and its follow-up and implications will be handed over to other government ministers. I sense she will step down because of all the pressure, stress and strain that she has been under; however, she will still be in a governmental position, doing good for the nation.
‘I asked the Lord who would come into power next – what government? He said that it would be another joint government leadership, but that it would be balanced (ie. no need to worry). I just sense we need to pray for her more, and that whatever happens next will be a Godly move. We need Him to be governing and ruling in our nation. We need the next leader and government to be by his hand and not purely by man’s, so that our nation is led by Him.’

A JOURNALIST’S TAKE ON PM MAY
In that regard, the Director of the Social Market Foundation and The Telegraph’s former executive political editor James Kirkup offers an astute observation on Theresa May:
“Anyone paying close attention to the election result or Mrs May’s words since would have picked up her signals about her real intentions.”
What he was writing on the day Ruth Grigg prayed as above got published later online (‘Theresa May’s punchbag act…’), and in Saturday’s broadsheet as The lady’s not of turning…so is this the package May planned to deliver all along? Kirkup writes,
‘…The Brexit deal set out in Brussels today is testament to Mrs May’s extraordinary toughness, an ability and willingness to endure public abuse, collegiate acrimony and private despair, yet not give up. Her predecessor may have run away from the scale of the Brexit challenge he gave Britain, but Mrs May has stayed at her post.
‘Whatever you think of the deal, whatever questions it leaves unanswered and whatever trouble it stores up for the future, remember this: many of those now passing learned comments on it were six months ago convinced that Mrs May would not be in office by now.
‘Her willingness to endure pain and ability to survive apparently mortal wounds – including self-inflicted ones – are the foundations of this deal.
‘The greatest of those wounds, the botched election, is perhaps key. For when Mrs May lost her Commons majority, she made compromises on Brexit inevitable, since she (or any other Tory PM) would lack the votes – and authority – to drive through the hardest form of exit sought by purist Leavers.
‘Looking back, it is hard not to wonder whether, within hours of the June 8 disaster, she had already calculated that only by making the subsequent negotiating process look unendurably hard might she able to placate those purists during the inevitable climb-downs to come…’
