Yesterday I had the privilege of taking part in the UK March for Repentance. The march ran from Hyde Park past Westminter Abbey and the Houses of Parliament down to Trafalgar Square where there were a number of speakers and prayers for the nation. I phoned up the organisers of the event a week or two and asked if there was anything I could do to help, and ended up wearing a day-glo yellow-green jacket and helping steward.
This was not a difficult task because the crowd were very peaceful. The hardest part of the march was carrying people’s bags, chairs and a large number of bottles of water!
There was a strong sense of the presence of God on the march, and it was remarkable how people stopped as we marched and looked at us and were very interested and open in our message. I am convinced that there were more people at the end of the march than when we started. The route of the march led right past the office I work in during the week and that was surreal marching past my office with hundreds of Christian praying for the people around, singing Christian hymns and being in the presence of God so strongly.
As always at these events we meet new people from all over the globe, and I met a lovely Welsh lady called Heather and her friend Steve who are involved in a prayer ministry in north Wales. I am sure we will meet again and maybe help extend the kingdom of God together.
I will write a little bit on the state of the nation during this week and put on my photographs from the event.
