Where is God when we are in the midst of tribulation? - He is right there with us, a very present help in our times of trouble. It is easy to feel God's presence when we are on the mountain top, celebrating His goodness; but the Scripture implies that whilst He is present in our good times, He is very present in our distress. Some years ago I was invited to speak at a conference. The theme was how we can know God, how we can come into His presence. I took as my Scripture Deuteronomy 4:29, 'If from where you are you shall seek the Lord Your God you shall find Him'. You will find God when you are in tribulation, when all the problems of life have come on you. God will use the very circumstances you are in to work a miracle in a demonstration of His Power.
It is so important to pray for our loved ones. As you know, not only am I a father, but I am a grandfather and great-grandfather, so I feel a burden to pray for their futures: join with me in prayer as we pray blessing upon all our families at this time of distress in our nation. The Scripture teaches, 'The Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments' (Deuteronomy 7.9). What a wonderful promise!

Oh the joy of answered prayer; the relief of burdens lifted and the excitement of new beginnings. We have a God of power, glory and miracles - He is a prayer-answering God. We can all have this relationship with Him. If you are sick, or crippled, in despair, alone, whoever you are, wherever you are - God will hear you, God will answer your prayer like He has answered mine! It is not about religion; it is not about ceremony - it is about finding a new reality, a new relationship with Jesus. I know God is alive and delights in answering our prayers.

This pandemic is an unprecedented crisis. So often I quote the Scripture from Romans 1:16, I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ for it is the Power of God! Whatever nation we live in, politicians and scientists do not have the answer, but God does! He is revealing His Power now! Jesus was revealed to destroy the works of the enemy.

As Christians we are facing an extreme challenge. The Holy Spirit is alerting me to what is happening in Britain and Europe! We need to be aware that the devil is using both the Coronavirus and the economic crash to move us further into prophecy for the coming of the Antichrist. The Lord is being very specific with me and calling us to react positively now. I am praying that God will open our eyes and show us not what man’s strategy is, but what is clearly God’s strategy through this crisis! Join me as I pray for Britain.
We have a prayer-answering God, but do we really believe Him? Do you want to see revival? All God needs is one man or woman who can pray like Elijah, who can believe like Jesus said. Do you know what the spirit of Elijah is? To me it is the power that a man can have with God. If you knew the power that you can have, you can call down fire from Heaven, see a nation repent in a day, command the rain to come and it will – that’s the power that God has given you.Lessons from 70 years of ministry: 'For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance.'

I believe in prayer and in a God of miracles. But in 2002 I was faced with a challenge: do I really believe God or not? Diagnosed with lung cancer, my only hope was Jesus. I didn't go to a healing evangelist, I went to the Word of God and He completely healed me - no operation, no treatment - I only had God and the Bible, and that's all I needed to confound the doctors. They were shocked, they didn't believe God. But I do! I believe in a God of power and of miracles. Healing, deliverance, forgiveness are yours to receive in the Name of Jesus... stop struggling and come into His arms! Talk to Jesus. He's listening. Ask Him to forgive your sin and to heal you. He loves you; He'll answer! Lessons from 70 years of ministry: 'For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance.' (Part 8)

God answers prayer! At the mention of His Name, Jesus will come to save, heal and deliver. It is never too late: even when all around you seems dead and gone, Jesus will take you by the hand, speak tenderly to you and say, "Little girl, get up."

My God answers prayer! He is a God of Fire and Power! How do you set fire to wet wood? - You can't, but God can! When Elijah called upon the Name of the Lord, Fire fell from heaven and consumed the sacrifice. O God send the Fire of the Holy Spirit, we are waiting and expecting You to answer, now!
