Decree: I am the light of the world
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)
We declare that our nation will serve one God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. We negate any ties to Zeus and demonic forces, and declare and decree that this torch will be symbolic of the light of Jesus going through our land.
Blessing: Aaronic Blessing
As the Olympic torch begins its 70-day journey tomorrow over these Isles we release the blessing of Christ Jesus. We bless this nation to know the One and Only true God, for scales to fall off eyes, and unbelief to turn to faith.
Noon: The Lord’s Prayer and the Prayer of Protection
O Lord God Almighty,
We worship and bless Your Holy Name.
We bring the British Isles before You.
Have mercy on us and forgive our foolish ways.
Come to our aid, Father. Cause Your will to be done among us.
Come, Lord Jesus: You alone are the Way, the Truth and the Life.
May You be honoured and glorified in our nations.
Come, Holy Spirit: refresh and revive us again.
Draw us after You and let us run together.
In Jesus’ wonderful Name.
A Prayer of Blessing to be prayed over each city each day
We stand in the mighty name of Jesus and bless you (name of city eg Plymouth on Day 1)
That you might prosper under the mighty hand of God.
We bless you that justice and righteousness might take their proper place within your boundaries. We bless
you that the favour of the Lord might rest upon you and give you peace.
We bless you that the Father’s compassion might fall upon your people. We bless your poor that they might
be lifted up.
We bless you that the knowledge of Jesus might come in amongst you like a flood.
We bless the people of God in (name of city) that they might rise up with servant authority and become a
people of blessing.
We bless you that the joy of the Lord might be your strength. Amen.
The Lord bless you and keep you,
The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you.
The Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.
So they will put My Name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.
Prayer of Protection
Almighty Father, we come to You in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, and in that mighty Name we break
the power of every strategy and assignment sent against the British Isles and Ireland. We pray the mighty
covering of the Living Blood of Jesus Christ over our villages, towns and cities, over our coastlands,
seaports and airports. We ask that You release the angelic host to protect us from every attack and lift each
citizen above every circumstance and crisis. We affirm the finished work of Christ over all demonic forces
and decree that no weapon formed against the plans and purposes for the British Isles and Ireland will
prosper, and we decree that no longer will violence be heard in our land, or destruction within our borders.
We bless the atmosphere to be charged with peace and order. Amen.
(Isaiah 54:17 & 60:18)
