OL2011 Report: II by kate whatmore

So, we walked the corridors of power and decision, we left a trail of God’s Glory- His love, hope and blessing and when we were done with our tour we went into one of the smaller meeting rooms situated off the ‘Great Hall’ and had the incredible privilege to meet with one of our Members of Parliament who took some time to talk to the kids about how his faith helps him in his job.  We then prayed for him and prophesied over his life and work.  The children prayed some powerful prayers and one of them prayed out what was in his prophetic card (which I knew because he had been on my list of MPs, but that child wouldn’t have known what was written in that card!)  which was an amazing confirmation to me that the children were hearing accurately God’s messages for our nations leaders.  After praying we took some time to worship, right there in the Houses of Parliament. As the children lifted their hearts and voices to God, He came and met with us, His very presence right there in Westminster.  We also had some more time to pray and speak out God’s promises over the United Kingdom.

We had spoken to the children about how they can make a difference and shift or change atmospheres, bringing hope and joy where there is none.  We saw a very physical and tangible picture of this in what happened next. We left the Houses of Parliament and stood outside it with our little bottles of bubbles. We stood in a line and blew bubbles out across the crowded streets and into the city.  The bubbles were a representation of God releasing Joy to our nation.  It was amazing!  As the children blew the bubbles, people stood and had their photos taken with us, they stopped to watch and smiled delighted smiles!  Many tried to catch the bubbles, joy spreading in the natural across the faces of the crowds as joy was released in the heart of our nation in the supernatural.  It was a time that I will always remember!
