New Prayer Resource! Transformations Ireland

About Us

Transformations Ireland and our friends have been meeting since 2000 to pray together for the transformation of our cities and nation.

Transformations Ireland and our friends have been meeting regularly since 2000 to pray together for the transformation of our cities and nation. This was initially inspired by the Transformations videos that show examples where communities and cities throughout the world are experiencing transformation as God moves in response to the churches in those areas uniting to pray and work together.

Community Transformation

Prayer, humility and deep repentance are key factors in seeing community transformation/transformational revival happen. Our concern has been to see prayer take place and to encourage relationships amongst Christians across all denominations. To this end we have organised prayer breakfasts, leaders retreat days, worship and intercession concerts, prayer meetings in Stormont (praying for our politicians), the Global Day of Prayer events from 2005 – 2010, a number of conferences on the themes relating to prayer and intercession, teaching courses on prayer, intercession and community transformation. We seek to encourage and to come alongside groups and individuals who are seeking God’s Kingdom to come and impact their community and we partner and work with other groups and organisations who have that same heart

We are delighted to support the work of Transformations Ireland as it networks, encourages and mobilises united prayer across Northern Ireland and Ireland.

Vision

To see our LAND BLESSED and TRANSFORMED as the result of fervent united prayer of Christians in the churches.

To AFFIRM what the Lord is doing through different churches in our local communities.

To FELLOWSHIP with one another across denominations in order to strengthen our Christian family ties. We recognise that we need to avail of opportunities to develop trust and relationships amongst leaders and amongst church members in the nation.

To ENCOURAGE one another in united, fervent and persistent intercessory prayer. We want to be able to recognise the obstacles to the Kingdom of God in our nations and take positive action for their removal.

To VISION–CAST so that while individually we may work locally, we keep focused on the bigger picture of God’s transforming plan for our nation.

Values

We hold the following values……

These are values that the board of Transformations Ireland hold as important and central to all that we do. Also in pursuit of the broad vision outlined above, and with particular reference to the Global Day of Prayer events on Pentecost Sunday, we wish to see the following values expressed in initiatives we become involved in.

All church bodies and groupings of Christians, whether small or whether part of larger denominations, are valued and welcome to join with us in prayer for the Kingdom of God to impact our nation.

We want to encourage fervent and united prayer to see our nation transformed. It is not our intention to provide platforms to promote the ministries of individuals or organisations, including our own committee members.

We value support and encouragement from whatever source and in whatever amount. Although we shall be grateful and may acknowledge help given, we will not show particular preference to those who, by virtue of God’s blessing are able to support us in a significant manner.

We recognise that we are only a small part of the overall church and of what God desires to do in our nation. We trust that our contributions, by grace, may be found worthwhile and we wish to recognise others also who may have a similar heart to see our nation blessed through prayer.

Jesus Commissions His Disciples  

14  Finally he appeared to his eleven disciples while they were eating. He rebuked them for their unbelief and stubbornness, because they had not believed those who had seen him after he had risen.  15  Then he told them, “As you go into all the world, proclaim the gospel to everyone.  16  Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever doesn’t believe will be condemned.  17  These are the signs that will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons. they will speak in new languages.  18  and they will pick up snakes with their hands.Even if they drink any deadly poison it will not hurt them; and the’ll place their hands on the sick, and they’ll recover.”

Jesus is Taken Up to Heaven  

19  So the Lord Jesus, after talking with his disciples, was taken up to heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.  20  Then his disciples went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord kept working with them and confirming the message by the signs that accompanied it.

Part 3: A New Holiness Movement (Ephesians 5:1-18)

In Part 3 of “Revival Now”, we ask: what is the holiness that we are called to as Christians? It has been misrepresented and misunderstood by many in the church. In this message, David first establishes what holiness is not and then goes on to consider what is this holiness and most importantly how do we get it? In a day when sin and compromise is rampant in the church, we need “A New Holiness Movement”. In 2022 we need a revival in true holiness.

Revival Sermon: Diagnosing the Need – a sermon from Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

https://www.mljtrust.org/sermons/diagnosing-the-need/

Mark 9:28-29

Are you burdened by the condition of this world? Are you concerned with the present problems of this age? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones introduces a sermon series on revival by discussing some common misconceptions about apologetics and evangelism in today’s age. By using the illustration seen in Mark 9:28-29, he acknowledges that there are indeed different times, which require different means of actions. The church and its members often rush to fix a problem before properly diagnosing the issue. Just as Jesus did in Mark, we need to be reminded that we must have understanding in our approach. So, as you are confronted by the way certain people live, be mindful that each case is different. In speaking about apologetics, Dr. Lloyd-Jones discusses a common error of the church trying to make the faith relevant in today’s culture. Some say that newer Bible translations or better church advertising would cause revival. However, are those targeting the root of the modern problem? Revival comes only by the power from God. As we feel burdened or pressed of the condition of this world, we need to be in constant prayer for power and guidance for the Lord.
