Plymouth Rock Prayer Gathering: Wednesday 11 November
There was a significant prayer gathering on 11 November at Plymouth Rock (Massachusetts) to ‘celebrate and pray into the heritage of the Pilgrims’ prayers and deep commitment to the Lord’.
You can watch the broadcast on Youtube by CLICKING HERE. It remains available to watch at any time.
“Father, as William Bradford asked 400 years ago, what can now sustain us but the Spirit of God and Your grace. Fill us to overflowing with Your Spirit and pour out Your grace. Thank You for the precious heritage of America in the Pilgrims.”
‘The 400th Anniversary of the signing of the Mayflower Compact could not have come at a better time. What is the Next Move? It is what God will do next as we renew the covenant and continue to respond to His great stirring of intercession that we have experienced for the last 4 years.’

Pray USA: Background Info For Prayer
With the result of the elections in the USA still in the balance, it continues to be vital to pray for the final outcome, as it will have a significant impact not just on how the American people move forward from here but also on the wider world, including the UK and Israel.
As stated in the Belfast Telegraph, “States have until December 8 to resolve election disputes, including recounts and court contests over the results. Members of the Electoral College meet on December 14 to finalise the outcome.”
There is much to pray about as we seek God for guidance by His Word and His Spirit. There are a number of helpful articles listed on the Intercessors For America (IFA) website that might help to inform our prayers – CLICK HERE.
One of the latest articles entitled ‘Where are we now?’ asks us to pray ‘that we will see a fair and truthful outcome and that whoever is inaugurated as president will be the truthful winner’. Another article highlights the need to fight the spiritual battle behind the election results.
With so much conflicting information in the news media, CBN news has a number of reports (CLICK HERE) to help us stay up to date with the latest situation in the USA such as the following:
Closer to home, Richard Barker continues to do a great job in highlighting a range of articles that relate to the election from a more prophetic aspect. A full list of the articles that relate to the USA can be found by CLICKING HERE.
The website includes Biblical teaching, newspaper articles, interviews, reflections, prophetic words and dreams that might help to inform our prayers.
Recently, I couldn’t help but take note of various dreams Christians have had about current events in America.

On A Personal Note
I’ve asked myself, ‘Why pray for America when there’s plenty to be praying for closer to home?’ Why take the time to do this when there’s plenty to be doing, given the busyness of work and family life. And why get involved in praying for American politics given it can be a little contentious!?
However, I just have a sense of needing to intercede for the outcome of the American election right now, and that it would be good to do this both individually and corporately. I pray there will be peace and unity in America, but that it will be on a foundation of truth, righteousness and justice rather than fear, deception or manipulation. And ultimately we want to see His Kingdom come and His will be done.
When praying about it, the story of Esther came to mind. She went into the courts of the King and exposed a deceptive plot. God’s people were spared and justice was served. I’ve also had a nagging feeling over the last week to keep praying for what is in darkness to be brought into the light and then this verse stood out last weekend…
‘He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him.’ (Daniel 2:22)
If you have a sense that the USA might need prayer along these lines in the coming weeks, then please do feel free to join us for an hour (or so) of prayer on a Wednesday morning this month via Zoom. Click on the ‘prayer contact’ button to request ‘Zoom’ details.
