On Friday the 21st of July we held a New Zealand Prophetic Network regional meeting in Gore for the Southland region. About thirty people gathered to share together and pray for what God is doing in our nation.

Here are some of the things that came out of the groups that shared that evening. The following is a summary and collation of many people's input and I have shared the things that came across from multiple people and groups. Please feel free to use these notes in your prayer times as you’re praying for the nation.

God is moving - God wants us to open our eyes to see that the Kingdom of God is already moving through our nation in a powerful way, like a river that has broken free of its banks (what God is doing will not be confined by man). He is calling the people of God to turn (repent) and realize that the Kingdom of God is at hand.

God is declaring and releasing hope - God is declaring hope to the people; it is being released afresh to people in the nation in many areas of society. God is bringing the church to a place of living out of hope, of seeing what He wants to do, what He has in store, and receiving the hope in that.

A new call to intercession  - A new call to intercession is going out - God wants to release a flow of light, love, and revelation.

God is releasing resources - God is releasing resources in this season on many levels - for the harvest and for the building up of the church; financial resources, resources for healing and emotional health. Southland has a call to the prophetic and apostolic gifts - with the capacity to bring the sense of God’s design and build.

Responsibility - There will be an increasing taking on of responsibility by the church for the state of our nation. People will begin to rise up and say “Not on my watch, this stops now!” and will follow through on a practical level to bring relief, hope and answers to society.

The harvest is ripe – A prophetic dream was shared – In the dream fruit trees were planted in winter and came to fruit quickly, the bright red apples were fully grown in winter. The interpretation that was given was that we are in a season of acceleration and the harvest is ripe. It may not feel like harvest season but it is! It’s harvest time, the harvest is ripe and it needs harvesting now. Many saw visions of waves of the Spirit of God coming upon the nation.

God is calling for us to work together in unity and love - God is calling us to become the manifestation of love in the earth. He wants us to resolve issues in the church so that unity can come. He is helping us to be real and to use the things that He has given us. God is looking for a generation that all creation has been longing and groaning for – the manifestation of the sons of God.

God is releasing healing  - God is establishing people in their identity in Christ, and one of the results of that is that healing is happening. He is taking a holistic approach, dealing with the whole person, body, soul and spirit.

God is honouring the past while doing something new – There has been much sown and there is a re-digging of ancient wells, and an honouring of what has been sown by different denominations and expressing unity. At the same time He is calling us to not be bound by the old, but to follow Him into the new.

God is opening our eyes to see the value of mankind – there is an increasing awakening to the incredible value of a person who is made in the image of God. God’s love and value for humanity is being reawakened in the church. He is giving us a deeper understanding of that love and we are becoming living manifestations of that love.
