Be Still: 40 Day Prayer Encounter Journal

The original context of this 40 Day Prayer Encounter Journal is the historic time our nation is going through with the Brexit process. There is much public anxiety, confusion and fear around as it is a time of uncertainty and turbulence. I was reminded of King Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20 when opposing armies were coming against him. He called all the people together – the men, the women and the children – to worship and to pray. At the end of his prayer he said ‘Lord, we don’t know what to do but our eyes are on you’. As I prayed into this prayer encounter journal, I sensed that we too should fix our eyes on Jesus; hence 40 days encountering him.
