Lion Bites From Glasgow Prophetic Centre... Release the River!
Psalm 36:8  They feast in abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
"I hear the call in the Spirit over you now: 'Release the River! Release the River!'
God is calling you to be one who releases the river of His presence where you are.  The place He has 
set you in is not by accident, you are there by His design.  He is calling you to apply the gift of faith you
have been given and release it over the people and place you reside in; over your atmosphere, over your area of influence.
'Release the River! Release the River! Release the River of my presence, my child, where you are, into the world
you reside in.  You are a steward of my River on earth.  Release what I have given you access to.  Allow my River
to wash over the people and the land.  Respond to the call and release the River!'
Release it in song, in declaration, with created images and items, in the spoken Word and in silence.  
The River of God is within you - it is straining to burst forth!
and  'You are being constantly cleansed' ...Many of you are walking in situations where the dust and dirt of this world clings
to you every day you return home feeling dirty and dishevelled. But don't be discouraged.
God says, "I am the living water that continually washes you, and I have placed within you a spring of living
water that gushes forth life in all its fullness.  Allow my Holy Spirit to take this water and turn it into words and actions
that will transform your situation.  Whenever you feel discouraged, imagine you and I walking through your day
barefoot together, in the river that flows from my Father's Throne.  In every situation that you face, in every challenge that comes
your way, with every person who crosses your path, feel the river running over your feet, cleansing and reviving you."
"I have made you clean, and I have made you a carrier of living water.  there is no situation that I cannot transform with
the water from my word."   John 13:10 " Jesus said to him, the one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet,
but is completely clean.  And you are clean."
Join with us in praying for the Colne Valley by using these inspirational prompts.
"Starting with some secret spring, the river begins its journey from the highlands to the sea.  Slowly the force gives the water a momentum, soon the stream will merge with others, its environment burgeons growth.  Subtly the meandering flow will grow and gather pace.  Obstacles only add to its creative power...........From humble beginnings nothing can stand in it way"            
from Punk Monk by Pete Greig and Andy Freeman.
 so let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!" amos 5:24W
We pray for political humility and wisdom during this changing of the seasons.  
Thank you Father that you love our country.
Thank you for your promise: "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and everything else shall be given unto you."
Acts 5:38-39 says,"... For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail.  
But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourself fighting against God."

*Colne Valley Challenge:  Colne Valley Praise 'Alive@5' is an opportunity to identify with the praising Choir infront of the army in 2Chronicles 20v15-21 and to ask God to raise up a local army of apostles, prophets, teachers, workers of miracles, healers, helpers, administrators and for peope to use whatever gifts God has given them, for them to rise up for God's Glory in the Colne Valley; We mean it when we sing "Take me to the River to win this generation for our King". John7v37-38
It is an opportunity to love one another, by this all men will know that we are Jesus' disciples if we love one another.John 13v34
By discovering the joys of His inconvenient love, overcoming our differences, we'll have an exciting opportunity to see where our God of Surprises will lead us!
Pray that our beautiful Colne Valley decides to become and be known as a Valley of Blessings! 2Chron 20v26 Beracah means 'Blessing'.

Isaiah 41:17-18 "But the lord will answer them; i the god of israel, will not forsake them.
I will make rivers flow on barren heights and springs within the valleys. 
I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs."
Thank you Father for these promoses, that you are with us and refreshing our spirits within us.
isaiah 43:19 "see, i am doing a new thing!
now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
The wild animals honour me, and the jackals and the owls,
because i provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland
to give a drink to my people, my chosen, the people i formed for myself
that they may proclaim my praise."
Thank you Father that your loving friendship is helping us to know you personally.
Thank you that when we trust you, you show us more of your ways.
Thank you for introducing us to more of your friends and that we can enjoy you together.
v25: I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake and remembers your sins no  more."
Most loving Father, thank you for forgiving my past.
Thank you for your faithfulness to me.
Please help me to be faithful to you and your ways...

John 1:47. Jesus saw Nathanael coming towards Him, and he said of him, "Here is an Israelite in deed (a true descendant of Jacob), in whom there is no guile nor deceit for duplicity!"

I head these words reverberate throughout the spiritual realms "Oh that a Nathanael generation would arise on earth."  This statement pulsated through every spiritual matter and could be heard echoing for miles.  As the sound came to an end, the decree was repeated, "Oh that a Nathanael generation would arise in the earth!"

God is calling for men and women who are pure in heart and washed in truth to emerge and make known the name of Jesus throughout the earth.  These men and women , that's you, understand how to work with revelation and know the truth deep in their hearts. They are dedicated to the reading and meditation on scripture and have deep spiritual rhythms that mark their day-to-day.  They are those 'in whom there is no deceit'.


"Oh that a Nathanael Generation would arise on earth!" 


Do you hear this call?  

Will you respond to the enquiry of the Lord as He looks for men and women of deep purity and good substance?

Stand firm


2 Chronicles 20:12-22 How many commands does he give them (us)? !!!

We do not know what to do but our eyes are on you. This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.

You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.’

Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be sucsessful. After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness. As they went out at the head of the army, saying; "Give thanks to the Lord for his love endures forever." As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes.,..

'Alive@5' seeks to be a choir infront of an army of willing helpers ready to be available for God to use whatever they offer.

Note: the 5 barley loaves and 2 fishes were offered by a young lad.  Barley bread is inferior to wheat bread signifying the lowly status of the lad. Jesus fed 5,000 through his willingness....

Ask the Holy Spirit how He can use your willingness


When Aslan Comes in Sight...

“Wrong will be right,

when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar,

sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth,

winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane,

we shall have spring again.”


Throughout our network we have repeatedly heard the prophecy 'Aslan is on the move!' It is an exciting promise that the King of Kings is ushering in a new season amongst us.


Join with us in praying for this new move of the Spirit to transform the Colne Valley!

The Lord, The Lord Himself!

Isaiah 12:1-4

In that day you will say:

“I will praise you, Lord.

    Although you were angry with me,
your anger has turned away
    and you have comforted me.
Surely God is my salvation;
    I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defence;
    he has become my salvation.”
With joy you will draw water
    from the wells of salvation.

An Invitation to the Banquet..... by  Francis Brienen

I invite you all, who seek security in land and possessions to come and sit at the table with those who have nothing to lose.

I invite you all, who seek to be comfortable in the circle of partner, family and friends to come and sit at the table with the different and strange.

I invite you all, who seek power and status, driven by ambition and insecurity, to come and sit at the table with the humble and gentle.

I invite you all, who seek conformity and live according to customs and codes to come and sit at the table with the free and dancing.

I invite you all who seek stability, accepting peace that is no peace, to come and sit at the table with the prophets and visionaries.

Christ, we want to accept your invitation, empower us by your Spirit to risk, to share, to venture, to dare, to dream, to dance, to celebrate.

Make us worthy guests at your great banquet of joy.
