Report Oslo Oct 27-31

We left Copenhagen with mission accomplished and well done faithful servants, but there was no entry into rest today.

As we got off the plane in Oslo, we went straight to a meeting. The Norwegian prayer council were hosting us with representatives from different parts of Norway. Our hosts shared a meal with us in the Markus church and then we listened to a vision of a prayer house for the city. The evening meeting was quite spontaneous and prophetic. We were then brought to our lodging in a big house with nice beds. We fell asleep tired after a long day.

Prayer-walking the University of OsloThe next day, we met in the headquarters of the Billy Graham association that was preparing an evangelistic event Nov 11-12. It was a joy to support them in prayer for the breakthrough in the city. In the afternoon we split up in 3 teams praying at strategic places in town. The prayers seemed to be inspired and flowing from God’s heart. The reports were good afterwards. We brought what we carried, the prophetic intercession and we encouraged the national prayer council to get more of this in the whole nation. We prayed for impartation to the leaders. This and the rising of the (good part of) Viking spirit came back many times. God is about to release this in Norway when they will break out of passivity and become brave warriors for the Kingdom.

Full Team in front of Norwegian ParliamentThe 3rd day, we were praying a lot with the national prayer council for strategy for the future. Then we were able to prophecy for the 10 leaders that were there, giving them about an hour of prophecy each. No need to say that this was very encouraging for them. They said that at least 95% of what was prophesied was spot on. This was of course very encouraging for us too.

Praying for Oslo from above the cityThe last 2 days our program was much softer. We went to Holmenkollen, the famous ski-jumping arena, from where we also prayed for the city. We had more debriefing in the team. It was a busy program, but despite this they all did well and were able to minister and pray powerfully in the capitals. We thank God for the opportunity of being part of this. People in the team were also able to link up with their Norwegian heritage some hundred years back and could get that blessing over their lives as a bonus.

All glory to Him.
