Maranatha – new comment on UPRising Europe

New comment from Kate Stanway

<p>Yes, Linda, thank you so much for posting this encouragement about UPrising Europe. As an "over 70" I was so thankful to be part of this event with so many on fire younger people! Worship is a key catalyst for prayer and prophetic intercession and I believe it is the way forward for God's people in the next season. So much will spring from the Holy Spirit's leading in this way to undergird mission and the spreading of the good news across Europe. Being together in worship across the generations is a wonderful blessing and my heart was impacted by the sense of unity that was present at UPrising Europe. The Presence of God was powerful and He graciously gave hope, expectation and excitement to our hearts. He has heard our prayers for revival!</p>
<p>I couldn't contain myself when I arrived home on Friday – that's what happens when the Lord baptises you with fire! On Saturday morning Roger and I drove 2 hours to a very run down Methodist Chapel in Aberfan, South Wales, to be part of "30 hours of worship, prayer and prophetic intercession" with a group of mainly young people, but other age groups too. We were there for the final 6 hours in worship and declaration – and I never left the room! Amazing sense of His Presence, just like UPrising…</p>
<p> We were invited to join this worship gathering by an unexpected email from a group of people called Worshipping Friends. Do check their website out. </p>
<p>They simply go wherever the Spirit leads them to worship and then invite others to join them there. </p>
<p>Be blessed, dear Maranatha brothers and sisters. And thank You to our wonderful Lord!</p>

UPRising Europe

<p>Marie, Kate Stanway, Thomas Manwell, Simon & Ria Willocq and I joined with 250 Christians from across Europe for 72 hours of worship and prayer last week. It was an inspirational time, led by members of the younger generation with the focus: 'For Prayer, For Unity, For a Continent'.  The vast majority of folk were under 40s and their passion to see God's Kingdom advanced again across our continent was humbling. We can certainly declare 'There IS hope for Europe!' A key part of their vision is UNITY – across generations, nations and denominations. As a Community we have endeavoured to support this strongly.</p>
<p>It is part of the <a href="">UPRising</a> movement, which was launched globally in Seoul, S Korea in 2016. At that gathering we had 6hrs worship at the border with N Korea, praying for 'One Korea'.  Look what has happened since then! There have been other regional gatherings, all initiated and led by young people since then including one, led by an 18 yr old girl, outside the Parliament building in Mongolia!</p>
<p>This is just the beginning of a movement, entirely motivated and empowered by Holy Spirit, to re-take Europe for Jesus.  I am very excited to be a part of it! </p>
