When the servant of the man of God arose early and went out there was an army surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And (so) his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?”
Elisha answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And he prayed and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. (2 Kings 6:15-17 NKJV)
The urgent Rallying Cry penned by Hugh and Ginny Cryer, republished here last Thursday, invites readers to join them because, “We believe that the Lord is about to move powerfully in this nation once again. This time not just on the indigenous people of this land as in Wesley and Whitfield’s time but now in present day UK…
“For this move of God to come, I believe that the Lord is wanting to raise up an army and that we are all part of that army. His army for His battle for Britain today. Just as Rees Howells wrote about the battle for the skies and the heavenlies in 1940, so we are now called to wage war in the same way…”

A VAST ARMY
They’re not alone in sensing the importance of such a holy call to Christians in Britain, and I thank everyone who’s commented on the blog or contacted me direct. Edmund Phillimore emailed the next day and kindly permits me to quote him:
‘Yesterday at New Wine, James Aladurin of Prayer Storm spoke twice calling for people to become passionate prayer warriors birthing the revival we long to see.
‘He (told) how in 2017 the Lord drew his attention to Acts 12. When Herod found popularity following his executing James, he arrested Peter. Peter was asleep, in chains and in prison. But he was delivered by the angel as the church prayed through the night. He sensed the Lord saying that both church and nation are like Peter. There is an apostolic calling on the U.K. to take the gospel to the nations and like Peter they are asleep, in chains in prison. But there is also the church of constant prayer. Just as the prayers of the church in Jerusalem led to Peter being set free supernaturally, so God will deliver church and nation in response to the prayers of his people. Wake up prayer warriors!
‘I believe many at New Wine responded to James’ call. The Lord is on the move.’
Also, he noted that on Thursday UK Prophetic Words had republished a word Veronika West had brought in which she saw an army of the Lord advancing. I’d noticed it some days earlier on her Facebook dated 30 July. It reads:
‘LOOK! SEE there is A mighty Army that is Now MOVING and advancing upon the earth, there is a divine deployment in the camp of the Lord, THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD ARE TAKING NEW GROUND AND OCCUPYING NEW TERRITORY. The Season of Great Change and Divine Transition is NOW upon us.
“LISTEN! Do you HEAR The Sound of many trumpets, THE sound of the Shofar”? IT’S TIME TO BREAK CAMP AND MOVE FROM THIS PLACE OF BONDAGE AND STALE BREAD, the Land OF PROMISE, PURPOSE AND MANIFEST POWER IS BEFORE US.
‘I hear the Spirit say, “WARRIORS RISE UP AND TAKE YOUR PLACE ON THE FRONT-LINE OF BATTLE, FEAR NOT FOR THE GIANTS STAND POWERLESS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE KING, SEE, I HAVE PUT VICTORY IN YOUR MOUTH, NOW Open your mouths and I will fill it, speak forth My Word and it will go forth to pierce and penetrate the heart of darkness in the land. WATCH! As the AUTHORITY and the transforming Power of My Word goes forth to move and make way, for the Rivers of My Glory to Come and Break forth upon the Nations.
“COME UP HIGHER, YES! Let us go up together to the high places, where the fragrance of the prayers and Praises of My PEOPLE fill My nostrils. Have I not said, the Books that have been sealed will now be opened? WATCH! As My Transforming Glory will Come, WATCH! As My Justice and Vindication will Come, YES! WATCH! As My Compensation will come, For I will pour out My Healing and Restoration Power upon the people of the land. Now Listen! Beloved You must Eat My Word, Speak My Word and NOW Run with the Roar of My Resurrection and Redemptive Power”, says God.
‘Friends, I see the Spirit of Revelation and Wisdom manifesting mightily and powerfully in the hearts and minds of God’s people in this Season causing many to Arise in greater power to go forth and declare their righteousness by His blood. Strongholds and strangleholds of the enemy are being dismantled and broken, I See an Army of Warriors begin to conquer and overcome those things that seemed impossible in the past, the weak are being made STRONG. I hear the sound of a war cry of Victory over the people of God, satan is defeated, the hand of God has overturned and overthrown every situation that has seemed insurmountable and impossible for many.
‘Listen! the ground is fertile and the seeds that you have sown in the last season will SUDDENLY AND QUICKLY COME FORTH, THE SEASON OF Abundant Harvest is upon us. The HAND of God is now moving with greater Acceleration and Momentum UPON THE EARTH, I SEE a SUPERNATURAL SHIFT taking place in the heavenlies which will now begin to manifest in the midst of you, WATCH AND EXPECT A DIVINE MOVE OF RESTORATION, TIMELY REVERSALS AND UNEXPECTED RECOMPENSE in every area in your life where the devourer came to rob, Kill and Destroy. hindrance that has drained and stifled your momentum is being uprooted and removed, there is a clear pathway forming in front of you. A pathway that leads to fruitfulness and Increase. The Spirit of God has equipped and empowered you to Stand and be Strong in the conflict, there is a battle that rages in the heavens on your behalf, be assured of His Blood that has overcome every demonic assignment and onslaught. He has given you weapons to war and to win, Now Take hold of His Peace and His Salvation, take Hold of His Righteousness and His Faith, Let His Spirit and His Truth guide and direct you, I Prophesy you are Standing in His Victory in this hour.
Hope is rising, I Prophesy it’s a New Day and a New Dawn for the faithful ones of God.
‘I see the finger God begin to Stretch you beyond your comfort zone, taking you beyond the borders of the familiarity and safety, He is enlarging you and preparing you for appointed times and seasons, you are being reset and recalibrated for these are indeed set times, times of watching and waiting, Heaven is about to move, there is a release of the power of His presence, I Prophesy His promises will be made manifest upon the earth. Get ready for the Suddenlies of God will begin to sweep across the nations like Wild Fires as the cries of repentance go forth, Be Expectant for a display of God’s Glory that shall be seen on earth like never before.’
WATCH and PRAY
Jane HollowayNational Prayer Director at Birmingham’s World Prayer Centre, also commented upon the Rallying Cry:
“Great to see this.. Can you pass on to them that there are many such groups all over the UK.. Great to know they are meeting to seek God in this battle for the soul of the nation season…people are meeting in groups in towns, cities, villages, there are over 50+ expressions of houses of prayer and worship etc..”
