Pray for me covering all the admin for this as well please!


Blessing Prayer - used at each prayer relay exchange to bless each city/town and region of British Isles:


I/we stand in the mighty Name of Jesus and bless you, (place/region) that you might prosper under the mighty hand of God.

I/we bless you that justice and righteousness might take their proper place within your boundaries. I/we bless you that the favour of the Lord might rest upon you and give you peace.

I/we bless you that the Father’s compassion might fall upon your people. I/we bless your poor that they might be lifted up.

I/we bless you that the knowledge of Jesus might come in amongst you like a flood.

I/we bless the people of God in this (place, region), that they might rise up with Servant authority and become a people of blessing. 

I/we bless you that the joy of the Lord might be your strength.
