Investigations commence -David Gilbey
As I left my job of the the last two years with CHP Housing, on 29th September 2014, I had no clear idea what the future held, other than a certainty that God had spoken. It was a real stepping out into faith moment and that faith had substance.
I immediately set about a journey of discovery as to what prayer and the prayer movement was all about Instantly, God presented a series of opportunities to visit places and meet people.
As of today, 19th November, I have visited 24-7 Prayer Boiler Rooms in Colchester and Stanford-le-Hope; had a weekend at the House of Prayer Europe, in Sunderland and spoken with its founder, Ken Gott. I’ve spent time in the 24-7 prayer room at HTB (Holy Trinity Brompton); been to an all day conference in South London about Houses of Prayer, with Mike Bickle of IHOPKC (international House of Prayer Kansas City) and spent a week away at a retreat learning about and practicing prayer at Ashburnham Place, East Sussex, with a man sometimes referred to as, “the Grand Father of the UK Prayer movement “, Brian Mills.
During this amazing time, during which my own prayer life is also being considerably refreshed, I am seeing much more clearly what is on God’s heart for our City and indeed our Nation.
God wants revival to come upon the UK and it is our prayers that will hasten it in.
