SCRIPTURE: Genesis 26:18 "And Isaac dug again the wells of water which they had dug in the days of Abraham his father, for the Philistines had stopped them up after the death of Abraham. He called them by the names which his father had called them."


This is the year to occupy for His purpose precious saints and part of that is training you to be the prayer warriors He is raising within this hour. Those that join the Weekly Corporate Friday Fasting have noticed the weekly revival series to stir you up to pray for revival. See, when you study revival history you are following the trail to all the same conclusions. Revival does not come by accident or happenstance. It may come suddenly, but never accidentally. That is why we need to get back to prevailing prayers and the preaching of the gospel, for these are the two most effective tools that the church employs and they may seem to have taken a back seat to all the apostacy we see today in recent decades, and all our nations have paid a price, as a result. Our hurting nations are a result of a weakened church; however, they do not have to stay hurt any longer for revival is upon us precious saints.


So please take the time to read these three-day teachings and historical accounts of fathers in the faith that moved in powerful prayer lives, as that is what we call digging the wells of revival.


You will clearly see from all these revivals that I post of the past is that it had nothing to do with the compromise we are seeing in the current church age. That is why we are digging the wells of revival. The repentance revival that is coming will not be birthed from the current church apostasy, but from those wanting to dig the wells of revival and learn from the forefathers in faith that have gone before us.


So, for those that desire revival may I suggest you join all our fasting’s, to learn and stir up a spirit of prevailing intercession. So that we can see the promised genuine revival starting, not just in one continent this year but spread to every nation. For It is time to occupy for His purpose in 2023.


Jeremiah 6:16 "Thus says the Lord: “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’"

As I have mentioned before, 2023 will be a busy year to occupy the nations and spark His end-time repentance revival. But it will not come without resistance, for there is a spiritual battle in the second heavens trying to hinder God’s sovereign move. Yes, a spiritual shift is taking place within this hour that is happening internationally, nationally, and locally. The level of His glory will be released more and more, as humble hearts cry out for more of Him and His purpose. The mark of this revival will be the deep level of repentance and the Holy Spirit will convict sinners from far and wide. Africa is so hungry for this end-time revival, and it will spread to other nations more and more, as the hunger increases. This weekend’s teaching is about you being equipped as a prayer warrior.


The Lord is coming to pull down the idolatry in the church, clean out the temple and prepare a remnant bride for His coming. True revival is the great equaliser, where the poor and rich are welcome, where the pulpit becomes level with the pew, and everyone that comes, who hungers and thirsts, is welcome and filled. There will be no commercializing or merchandising this revival, as it will be free (Isaiah 55:1-3). God is coming to revive His Church outside the traditional walls to set individuals ablaze, to go back in the denominations, and set it on fire for those that hunger and thirst.


So, no matter how enormous the task and vision may be ahead, His grace is sufficient, and many will be saved during this End-time repentance revival. He is coming for nations, so get ready as He will not share His glory with another. Time is short and His Spirit will bring a quickening within this hour to fulfill His purpose. The key to spiritual authority is the level of humility and so God will use anyone willing to become humble before God with no agendas.


We are in a spiritual battle today that requires more grace precious saints, for we are moving into a new season, and this brings a new level of opposition. The hordes of hell are being released upon the unrighteous with many being used to bring about the enemy’s agenda upon the face of the earth. Therefore, we need to continue to stand in prayer and occupy for His purpose for the remaining of 2023.


And as you join this 3 Day Fast, also join the weekly corporate Friday fasting we have each week to stir revival in your hearts and that of your families, churches, cities, and nations so that they will be awakened. This is the hour for revival within the nations to usher in the Lords soon return. Do not forget to write down all your prayer requests and place within your bibles, so we can agree with you for those breakthroughs.



Now as many of you may have heard me mention already about the 68 WhatsApp groups that we have already started for different nations that desire Repentance Revival. See just as it takes only just one person to change the atmosphere with prayer, it also just takes one person to put up their hand to start a WhatsApp group for your nation. So, we are just looking for one person that is committed to be an ADMIN for the group if one is not already doing the role. The purpose of these groups will be to encourage people weekly to fast and pray and invite locals to join, to stir revival and share the content.


Now the purpose of this is so we can send all our daily messages through, as audio MP3 files. See, many countries do not have access to ample Wi-Fi or data, making it difficult to listen to our content on YouTube. Now, I am also making this available on our website under the community section to download and will also be available on the future app coming.


Therefore, as we desire to do our part and fulfilling the preaching of the gospel to all nations, we will start this straight away. So, if you are interested in joining one of our WhatsApp groups, then feel free to email us at


Now as the Lord tarries and the mandates continue to come down, I plan to travel to nations that desire repentance revival that have started these groups just like with South Africa and Namibia. Therefore, I am looking for serious invites in the future, but first we must prepare the ground in prayer and fasting for those nations. Now as the Lord sends me to individual nations, these groups will also be used to connect and see in what way we can work together planning and visit different cities within your nations, along with advertising of fasting programs etc. So, everyone is invited to join our WhatsApp groups, and if your nation is not yet mentioned, feel free to raise your hand to be an ADMIN and we will start one to spread repentance revival.



Please click onto the Link for more details of the program:


This month of March l want to encourage all Christians on social media that want a personal revival, breakthrough, and restoration to Fast & Pray along with us this month’s 3 day fast. It is also a time to help prepare us for His imminent return.


This is an event anybody can partake of anywhere around the world, in your home, church, friend’s house, in the village or in the city etc. The main purpose is to get people to repent and turn back to God. By using the same calendar day through fasting and prayer taken from 2 Chronicles 7:14, that it will build awareness of the need to pray for your local church. Though we are on different timelines I encourage you to just follow the dates for your respective countries.


Date: MARCH 10th, 11th & 12th 2023


Fasting Days: Friday, Saturday, Sunday


Fasting Teaching -







What am I required to fast from?

Fasting Type: It is your choice what level you wish to fast, you wish to do 3 days dry fast without water or food, maybe you wish to do 3 days with water fast? Or you could fast from food but drinking water or fluids partially. You are welcome to break the fast each evening and start again either after meal (6am-6pm) or you can go straight through as I said. You can even just skip one meal a day if you wish also. See the key is I want you to abstain from something to seek a closer walk with the Lord and see your spiritual breakthroughs. The key is to also follow the program that is designed to assist and be a guide to press into the Lord. You will find some helpful tips below also. Once again, we want to leave this decision up to you about how you are going to do it. We do not have any mandatory church-wide requirements for how you fast, but here are a few others’ ideas for first timers:


Food Fast

When we choose not to eat or not to eat certain foods, we allow our physical bodies to hunger and to bring our desires into alignment with our spiritual need for God. There is a clarity in hearing from the Lord which comes when we fast and pray; making a small sacrifice to give up a “pleasure” or comfort to increase your spiritual sight and vision.

We are providing the following options for you to consider:


1. Food Fast

You fast from all foods from either 10pm-6pm (20 hours) or 6am-6pm (12 hours) each day with fluids allowed.


2. Partial Fast

You choose to eliminate certain things i.e., fizzy drinks; sweets/chocolates, bread, no red meat etc, but the rest of your diet remains mainly the same.


3. Fruit and Veg

Eat fruit during the day, with liquids (tea/limited coffee, herbal drinks, and water) with a veg meal in the evenings.


4. Liquids only during day and veg meal for dinner

Drink water and herbal drinks during the day with a veg meal in the evenings. Please consult your doctor if there are any medical concerns before you commence the fast.


Media Fast

During this time, we encourage you to turn off the TV, computer, video games, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, the Internet, and any other form of social media for a brief peri od of time. You may decide to fast from Facebook or some other form of media altogether or to limit your time to only 1-2 hours per week. When we do this, we create more time when we can read our Bible, pray, worship, and hear from God.


Search your heart in deciding what type of food fast you want to do. If you have never fasted, maybe start off with a partial fast and progress to some fruit and veg option for the last couple of days. Remember, the most important consideration in fasting is your motive. Why are you fasting?


What will we be praying about?

Check each day for the next 3 days as there will be theme topics, scriptures, and prayers. So, you may follow corporately all together. We are trusting the Lord that this time of fasting, and prayer will release a passion for His name within us – to cut off what belongs to past seasons, to receive renewed hope and a vision for our lives/ministries, to be conduits for signs, wonders and miracles and to fulfill the mandate of sharing the gospel to those that will listen! During this time of fasting, be intentional about your priorities. Set aside ample time to be alone with the Lord. The more time you spend with God, the more meaningful your fast will be. If you need an overview or suggestions on what you can do to make the most of the fast in terms of having a daily routine, use the below points:



Begin your day in praise and worship.


Read the days program and meditate on God’s Word


Invite Holy Spirit to work in you.



Take a short prayer walk.


Spend time in intercessory prayer for the theme of the day.



Make time and be available for an unhurried time of “seeking God’s face.”


If others are fasting with you, meet for prayer.


Avoid television or any other distraction that may affect your spiritual focus and watch the daily uploads to YouTube. You are welcome to watch Christian movies etc.


When possible, begin and end each day with your spouse, family, or friend for a brief time of praise and thanksgiving to the Lord. Please let us know you will be fasting & praying with us!




1. Avoid medical and even natural herbal drugs. However, if you are under medication, these should only be withdrawn upon the advice of your doctor.


2. Limit your physical activity and exercise. If you have a workout routine, adjust it accordingly.


3. Rest as much as you can if needed be.


4. Maintain an attitude of prayer throughout the day. Intercede for your family, pastors, church, nation, missionaries & world missions, etc.


5. Drink plenty of clean water if you are joining the water fast.


6. As your body adjusts, be prepared for temporary bouts of physical weakness as well as a greater likelihood of impatience, irritability, and anxiety.




“. . . in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the LORD given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years. SoSo, I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes.” Daniel 9:2,3


Fasting helps us prevail in prayer and intercession. Daniel understood that Israel was headed for destruction. He also knew that in times like these, there is only one recourse—intercession through praying and fasting. Throughout human history, God has brought revival and delivered nations from destruction in response to prayer and fasting.




“. . . I put on sackcloth and humbled myself with fasting . . .” Psalm 35:13


Humility results in the grace of God (James 4:6). When we humble ourselves in prayer, we have instant access to the heart of God. As we deny ourselves as an act of consecration, we are better able to exercise self-control over our emotions and desires.



Fasting can be done for one meal, one day, one month or for however long God leads. It depends on how the Holy Spirit speaks to us. Shorter fasts are easier to endure until we have built up our “spiritual muscles.” A three day fast is most beneficial as a spiritual cleansing. An example of this is Paul being thrust into his fast upon conversion. After the three days of cleansing, he received the Holy Spirit and his eyesight when Ananias laid hands on him (Acts 9:17-18). We also can be spiritually cleansed by fasting so that we receive more of the Lord’s Spirit and have our spiritual eyes opened to new dimensions. A three day fast is also especially helpful in breaking any addictive habits.


These then are two reasons for fasting: We receive spiritual cleansing, and our spiritual eyes are opened, and we also obtain victory over the devil. When Jesus encountered Satan, He was able to overcome Him because His fasting had given Him spiritual strength. Isaiah 58:6 also gives us light on this purpose of fasting: “Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loosen the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?” Many people believe that fasting is to move the hand of God, when in reality it is to make Satan turn loose of the things he is holding.



Fasting loosens the bands of wickedness. When Jesus discussed the keys to the kingdom, He told us to bind and loose. When we fast, we loosen the bands of wickedness, undo the heavy burdens, set the oppressed free, and break every yoke of the enemy. Fasting is an important key to getting the victory over hard situations and challenging situations that do not seem to respond to normal prayer.


Fasting builds our faith. In fact, this is what Jesus meant when he spoke to the disciples in Matthew 17:21 in answer to why they were not able to cast a demon out of a child. He said, “However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” He was telling them if they wanted their faith to be at such a level as to be able to cast out demons, then they must fast and pray for their faith to increase.


Fasting also makes it easier for us to hear the voice of the Lord. We find an account of this in Acts 13:2 “While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”


While fasting, the Holy Spirit spoke to them and gave them direction. We too can be directed by the Lord if we seek Him through prayer and fasting.


When we deny our natural cravings, our spiritual antennas become more attuned. We become more sensitive to His voice as we divest ourselves of worldly distractions. We are better able to focus on God and submit to His will. This opens the door for more of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.


Fasting and mourning are closely associated strongly associated in the Bible. Two examples of this are found in Ezra and Nehemiah.


Ezra 10:6: “Then Ezra rose up from before the house of God, and God and went into the chamber of Jehohanan the son of Eliashib: and when he came thither, he did eat no bread, nor drink water: for he mourned because of the transgression of them that had been carried away.”


Nehemiah 1:4: “And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven.”


From these Scriptures, we see that fasting and travail (a prayer burden from the Lord that brings crying and tears) were combined. Both men were fasting for the repentance of God’s people. How we need this same kind of intercession today. Here were men so burdened for the sins of their people that they fasted, travailed, and prayed.

Scripture Text:  Psalm 2:8 “Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession.”


Precious saints today being day one we are going to talk about the subject of praying over your city’s and believing God for repentance revival and the Lord’s deliverance. Now what we must understand is over every city there are spiritual forces against which we are coming. In fact, we are up against a very well organised demonic army that has its own hierarchy and levels of satanic authority. These authorities can be set over empires, cultures, nations, cities, and regions of the earth. They can be behind natural and supernatural government also precious saints.


1. Satan (commander-in-chief) 2. Thrones 3. Dominions (lordships) 4. Principalities (rulership’s, princes) 5. Powers (authorities) 6. Rulers Of Darkness of This World 7. Spiritual Wickedness (wicked spirits) In High Places (heavenly places)


So, these territorial spirits we are coming against are the demonic powers that have the controlling influence over specific sites, peoples, and areas. So, when praying these are the forces that could be within our neighbourhoods and even the street we live. Some could be linked to deities connected to certain homes, temples, clans, cities, valleys, and nations etc.


One thing I have learnt as a missionary is that when you are in very heavy witchcraft areas doing the work of the Lord, fiery spiritual warfare prayers are very effective. Now you got to understand that we have different seasons of praying warfare prayers and other seasons of resting in the Lord’s presence and devotion. But when the Holy Spirit calls you to pray in spiritual warfare, do not allow anyone or anything to deter you from doing so. That is also why you see me fasting all the time and encouraging others to do so because it is strengthening many to become spiritual warriors.


Warfare prayers are needed in different seasons of their lives, that bring change to the very environment around us. One testimony I use is of a young sister who was led to pray our midnight warfare prayer program for a season each night. One night when she was praying, she heard a male voice try to interrupt her prayers saying, “PLEASE STOP PRAYING, YOU ARE INTERFERRING WITH OUR WORKS.” It was the voice of the warlock/ witch doctor in the area that was frustrated because the prayers she was praying were interrupting the diabolical works of the warlock in the spiritual realm. Now when we are praying and fasting corporately, we really start to tear down spiritual wickedness in high places, but as a body of believers around the world we are sending a barrage of assault weapons against the enemy, that would not be possible praying just alone. For remember when we come together in agreement with two, the scriptures says that we shall put ten thousand to flight.  


Joshua 23:10 “One man of you shall chase a thousand, for the LORD your God is He who fights for you, as He promised you.”


We are in a spiritual battle today that requires more grace precious saints, for we are moving into a season of revival, but before revival comes, we need to be prayed up for the enemies’ attacks.


Matthew 11:12 “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” What is happening around us requires us to stand more firmly in the Lord with the pressures around us and this world’s system. Fasting is of the up most importance today for many can be filled with the Holy Spirit, but until they start to fast and practise self-denial they will never walk in the power of God.


2 Corinthians 10:3-5 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not [a]carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…,”


See our faith in God's spoken word releases the power from heaven that binds (or ties up) the evil we are facing. Similarly, when we loosen something on earth, we "permit and declare [it] proper and lawful on earth.”


Matthew 16:19 “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loosen on earth will be loosened in heaven.” So, everything that we loosen, or bind must be in accordance with God's word.


So, knowing that this is the year to occupy for His purpose we must press into prayer and raise up even more local prayer watches to blanket our cities with intercession.


See the powers of the air recognise that the prayers of the saints have been getting through to the throne! Our intercession has been filling the bowls and stirring heaven to come to the earth, for God to open the heavens and respond with thunder (Rev 8:4-5) and the enemy knows it.


The reality is that God is about to pour out His glory across the earth, bringing the true FEAR OF THE LORD upon the nations and Hell is running scared. All the powers of darkness are about to be exposed for what they truly are precious saints. They are making a last-ditch effort to release a demonic TERROR in hopes that we will be distracted and give in to a fear that is not of God, that is what we have seen with the church over the last 3 years has been tested.


The true fear of Lord is heaven-sent to awaken our spirits to the majesty and holiness of God, the Terror of Hell seeks to destroy our faith and kill our purpose and destiny. What we see happening in many of these horrific attacks is the devil’s pre-emptive attack to the Fear of the Lord that is coming. But we can do something about it, as we pray.


We must stand by those who are suffering from these attacks with our love, support, and prayers. But we must also take our positions in the prayer watch towers of our own communities for the days ahead precious saints. See this is another reason we started these WhatsApp groups around the nations, is to raise the Endtime army of God to take their positions. We must take the offense in securing our cities for the Kingdom by praying with likeminded saints in agreement for the spiritual and natural protection of the Lord. Our corporate alignment is key if we are to secure our cities and establish spiritual walls of protection that the enemy can’t penetrate. We must pray for God’s presence to become a wall of fire around our communities and for the fear of the Lord to permeate every street in our neighbourhood.


Zechariah 2:5 “And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the Lord, and I will be the glory in her midst.’”


No government can adequately protect us. No legislation can guarantee our safety. Not even a President or Prime Minister can provide the protection that is truly needed from heaven’s perspective precious saints. It is only when we humble ourselves together before the throne of grace and lift His banner over our nations and communities in oneness of heart and mind, that our boundaries will be secure from the demonic forces that seek to steal, kill, and destroy. I urge you to join with weekly and monthly fasting’s advertised on the WhatsApp groups for your nation. Because soon you will gather others to join around you that it will BUILD THAT WALL OF FIRE AROUND YOUR CITY! God is raising watchpersons within this hour to pray in revival to their cities that fire brands can start the flames of repentance revival hallelujah!


REES HOWELL: “WATCHMEN TO THE WORLD” (October 10, 1879–February 13, 1950)

Rees Howells was the founder of The Bible College of Wales. He came from humble beginnings in Wales, where he shunned school to go to work cutting coal in the mines to put bread on his family’s table.


Later, he sailed to America to get the education he had shunned and to make some money before returning to his homeland in time to witness the 1904-1905 Welsh Revival. It was from there that he gave himself fully to the Holy Spirit and immersed himself in his faith.


By then he had also married and had a son, after which he and his wife were led to the mission field in southern Africa. Both Howells preached constantly and prayed deeply and fervently over the residents of Rusitu, Gazaland and within several weeks their prayers began to change things.


He preached that the source of revival is the Holy Spirit, and he and his wife prayed ardently for the Holy Spirit to come. And the revivals came, washing over congregations like an all-encompassing wave. Thousands received Christ through these renowned revivals, just as Rees Howells said they would, as the Lord had shown him in a vision.


Intercession started to become a priority within his life with deep travail, agony, and authority. At this time, the Lord taught him how to pray for the sick; taking on their burdens, identifying with them until breakthrough came or not. He prayed for a consumptive woman for six months, but she died in the end. However, she died in victory. As Howells interceded for the sick, he began to hear God’s voice more clearly, and he came to know what God’s will for the sick person was, life or death. After the death of the consumptive woman, some people who were dying lived as a result of his intercession prayers.


The Lord used him a lot to pray for the sick during this time, and he said he believed a new era of healing would break out in the Church. The consumptive woman had four little children whose father deserted them soon after she died. The Lord directed Howells to move in with them and be their father, but this was something he was not inclined to do. He felt that he had no love for them and looking after them would severely restrict his ministry; he told God that he would only do it if He changed his heart so that he could love the children as a father. This the Lord did, pouring His love into Howells in such a way that Howells felt he loved every orphan in the world. At the last moment three of the children’s aunts came forward to look after them, but there remained in Howells a love of orphans.


The Lord needed Howells to be a pure vessel if He was to be able to use him effectively as an intercessor. One evening he was to speak in the open air after his friend had spoken. His friend was being used so powerfully by Holy Spirit that Howells wondered if he would ever be called upon to preach. Howells was not a gifted open-air speaker and a small amount of jealousy rose inside him. Holy Spirit really convicted him and told him that he had to repent to a friend and that if it ever happened again, he would have to repent publicly.


Their work spread, and more souls were saved. Over the years the couple travelled over 11,000 miles from one mission station to another, carrying their revival blessing with them wherever they went.



While preaching at a conference Howells received a vision of Africa. The Lord showed him the needs of the tribal people there and he realised that he and his wife were being called as missionaries there. However, they now had a baby called Samuel and Holy Spirit said, ‘You must prove to Me that you love the souls of the Africans who are to live for eternity, more than you love your own son.’


A few weeks before they were to leave, one of Howells’ uncles told him that the Lord had directed them to look after Samuel while his parents were away. In addition, Howells’ sister agreed to be the child’s nurse. In prayer together the Lord showed Rees and Elizabeth that their sacrifice would be rewarded by 10,000 souls. (It was not until after university that Samuel came back to his father; joining him in the ministry.)


They left for Africa by complete faith on July 10th, 1915. On arrival, they joined another missionary couple who had laboured in the area now called Zimbabwe for several years. On hearing that the Howells were from the land of revival they were asked if they had brought the blessing with them. They realized that the Howells not only had experienced the 1904-1905 Welsh Revival firsthand, but they were still carriers of the fire and had been a blessing to many others since.


The time in language and culture learning was then waived as the Hatches felt as though the Howells were the answer to their prayers. So, from their first days on the mission field, the Howells were immediately plunged into a ministry of stoking the flames of revival. For six weeks Howells spoke on revival and then Holy Spirit began to stir. The Lord told him that revival was coming and two days later, on October 10th, He came. They had two revival meetings every day for fifteen months and hundreds were converted. The station where they were was founded in 1897, and several had died establishing it. They had prayed for years and now they were reaping the harvest.


On hearing the news of revival an American station forty miles away invited them to speak. At the first meeting revival came. Their faith for revival was so profound that they expected it at any moment. They waited like this for two days, and then on Sunday it happened, and according to Rees Howells:


“The Sunday was October 10 – my birthday – and as I preached in the morning, you could feel the Spirit coming on the congregation. In the evening, down He came. I shall never forget it. He came upon a young girl, Kufase by name, who had fasted for three days under conviction that she was not ready for the Lord’s coming. As she prayed, she broke down crying, and within five minutes the whole congregation were on their faces crying to God. Like lightning and thunder the power came down. I had never seen this, even in the Welsh Revival. I had only heard about it with Finney and others. Heaven had opened, and there was no room to contain the blessing.


I lost myself in the Spirit and prayed as much as they did. All I could say was, “He has come!” We went on until late in the night; we couldn’t stop the meeting. What He told me before I went to Africa was actually taking place, and that within six weeks. You can never describe those meetings when the Holy Spirit comes down. I shall never forget the sound in the district that night – praying in every kraal [homestead].


The next day He came again, and people were on their knees till 6 p.m. This went on for six days and people began to confess their sins and come free as the Holy Spirit brought them through. They had forgiveness of sins and met the Saviour as only the Holy Spirit can reveal Him. Everyone who came near would go under the spell of the Spirit. People stood up to give their testimonies, and it was nothing to see twenty-five on their feet at the same time.


At the end of one week nearly all were through. We had two revival meetings every day for fifteen months without a single break, and meetings all day on Fridays. Hundreds were converted – but we were looking for more – for the ten thousand, upon whom He had told us we had a claim.”


The news spread and they were asked to go down to a missionary conference in Durban. It was then suggested that they go around all the mission stations in South Africa. Revival touched that conference, and the missionaries went home to prepare for their visit and the hoped-for revival. They returned to their station after a two-year revival tour. They arrived back in Wales on Christmas Day 1920.


They had done other exploits but were eventually led back to Wales where God showed them that they were to build the largest Bible college in Wales, which became known as the Bible College of Wales (BCW).


But that left a lingering question—how were they to pay for it? They were certainly not wealthy in any sense of the word. But they obeyed the Lord, having complete and utter faith in Him, and set about the work with a grand total of fifteen cents between them.


The Bible College of Wales was dedicated on Easter of 1924, the result of unshakable faith and fervent prayer, after many spiritual battles and tests of faith. The BCW grew in scope and reach. On a chilly December morning, Rees Howells heard the following message in his spirit: “Every creature—every creature.” This was a commission from God to give the gospel to every creature, and it became their mission to intercede on behalf of those who were lost, to serve others, and to be responsible for making sure that every creature heard the message of the gospel.


The staff “wept before God for hours,” utterly broken, seeing the sin in their own hearts that was revealed by His light. And as their prayers grew more fervent, they also felt the increasing presence of the Holy Spirit among them. It was during that time that the First World War broke out, killing multitudes of people, and their team of passionate intercessors began to earnestly pray for the lost.


Rees Howells went to be with the Lord in 1950, but his tireless work, godly vision and lasting legacy of fervent prayer still serve as a shining example of living in this world for the sole purpose of bringing people to Christ.


“Intercession prayer is the greatest force on earth!”—Rees Howells, 1935


Howell speaks prophetically of a company of discerning watchmen who stand on a wall on behalf of us all and understand and interpret the signs of the times, praying clear through until breakthrough occurs. I see the WhatsApp groups that we have created for the 68+ nations who have put their hands up as being this remnant of watch persons around the world.


“I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their Peace Day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence. And give him no rest, till he establishes, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth” (Isaiah 62:6-7).


In the same way, this scripture above should be one that we seek to emulate, believing for a miraculous Holy Spirit outcome from our prayers for many souls to come into the kingdom before His imminent snatching away of the bride of Christ.


Like many other revivalists we have been studying that have gone before us, they all represent the ones who stand on the wall and do not rest until major shifts take place on this earth. For our prayer shakes the heavens when we anguish in prevailing prayer. They are watchmen, who stand guard, setting their faces like flint toward the Lord, anticipating the soon coming of Jesus and the promised Endtime revival.



Pray for Unbelievers to Be Saved. Pray that people’s hearts will be opened to repent of their sins and confess Jesus as Saviour. Pray that every person in the world will be able to hear the gospel and the Word of God in their native language (Matt. 9:37–38, 24:14; Rom. 10:1; 2 Peter 3:9; Acts 26:18).


Pray for Repentance Revival to visit your nation that the Lord will bring about a National Spiritual Awakening. Pray that Jesus will revive the Church and awaken your nation to His greatness and supremacy. Pray that God will pour out His Spirit on your nation, forgive our sin, and heal our land. Pray that millions of people in your nation will be convicted by the Holy Spirit, repent of their sins, and turn to God with all their hearts (2 Chron. 7:14; Dan. 9:18–19; Ps. 85:6; Hab. 3:2; Acts 2:37–41).


Pray for Unity between Pastors and Churches. Pray that denominational, theological, and ethnic walls will come down so that pastors will love each other, pray together, and serve each other (John 17:20–23; Ps. 133:1; Eph. 4:3–6).


Pray for Families. Pray that Jesus will heal, restore, and strengthen every marriage and family. Pray that husbands will love their wives like Christ loves the Church and that wives will respect and submit to their husbands. Pray that the hearts of parents will be turned toward their children to love them and raise them in a God-honouring way. Pray that children will respect and obey their parents (Gen. 2:24; Josh. 24:15; Ps. 127:3–5; Mal. 4:6; Eph. 5:22-33, 6:1–4).


Pray for Racial Reconciliation. Pray that God will heal your nation of racism and tribalism and that God will use the Church to stand against racial conflict, violence, and prejudice. The Church must lead the way in racial reconciliation by modelling love and respect for every person regardless of the colour of their skin or their ethnic background (Rom. 10:12–13, Gal. 3:28, Acts 10:28, 34–35, John 7:24, 1 John 2:9, James 2:9, Rev. 7:9).


Pray for Life to Be Valued and Protected through All Stages of Life, Beginning at Conception. Pray for God to break the culture of death in your nation and restore a culture of life. Pray for legalized abortion to come to an end in Jesus Mighty Name! (Ps. 139:13–16; Jer. 1:5; Prov. 24:11; Deut. 21:8–9).


Pray for Local and National Government Leaders. Pray that they would be born again, and God will give them wisdom to make wise decisions and to govern with integrity, justice, and mercy (1 Tim. 2:1–2; Rom. 13:1; 1 Peter 2:17; Titus 3:1–2; Micah 6:8).


Pray for your home, community, and nation to be a dwelling place for God’s Presence. “‘And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will be its glory within” (Zechariah 2:5).
