England

Revelation 12:15 (NKJV)
So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.

Excerpt from Chapter 26 of The City of God by St. Augustine of Hippo:

. . . inasmuch as God commanded him [Noah], I say, to make an ark, in which he might be rescued from the destruction of the flood, along with his family, i.e., his wife, sons, and daughters-in-law, and along with the animals who, in obedience to God’s command, came to him into the ark: this is certainly a figure of the city of God sojourning in this world; that is to say, of the church, which is rescued by the wood on which hung the Mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus. For even its very dimensions, in length, breadth, and height, represent the human body in which He came, as it had been foretold. For the length of the human body, from the crown of the head to the sole of the foot, is six times its breadth from side to side, and ten times its depth or thickness, measuring from back to front: that is to say, if you measure a man as he lies on his back or on his face, he is six times as long from head to foot as he is broad from side to side, and ten tittles as long as he is high from the ground. And therefore the ark was made 300 cubits in length, 50 in breadth, and 30 in height. And its having a door made in the side of it certainly signified the wound which was made when the side of the Crucified was pierced with the spear; for by this those who come to Him enter; for thence flowed the sacraments by which those who believe are initiated. . . .

O Father,
The nation of England is awash in a flood of lies. May the people of England be rescued by the Mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus. Just as You called the different kinds of animals to enter Noah’s ark and live, we pray for Your call to the different people groups of England to come to the wooden cross of Christ and enter the church by His shed blood. Just as the ark had three levels, we ask for a thirty-fold, sixty-fold, and hundred-fold harvest of the gospel across this land.
New life! New life! New life in Christ. Amen.
