Stirred and shaken by a quake prayer-walk

11 days that will transform you life
A pilgrimage on dusty roads  through spectacular landscapes. The sun paints artistic shades on sandstone mountainsides. The wind carries a strange freshness in the air. The Maluti mountains boast their splendour. The African soil under your feet reminds of a journey deep within.

I have much to say about this prayer-walk, but let me start off by stating a fact: The area where I walked is not lying on any major fault-line, therefore earthquakes in the region are relatively rare.

At daybreak I started walking and praying as I linked various churches in the area with one long prayer.

In the afternoon something awesome happened. At 16:20 I was walking towards a church which I could see from a distance. I have just crossed over a steep hill, and was going from a populated area into a park-like open valley. I normally take some notes when I am prayer-walking and at that time I made these notes:

“I don’t know of a kind of a fault-line in the spirit realm … but as I came into this valley, it just felt like a dense cloud of depression hanging low over the area. It felt like some kind of tension was holding it together. I can best describe it by saying it felt like a spiritual fault-line …”

I believe that prayer also changes things in the spirit-realm.

Later that evening, in our cell group meeting, we were really having intimate prayer-time with God … and as we were busy praying, there was an earthquake.

The quake measured 4.5 on the Richter scale and was the worst in 37 years.

I was shaken …

Is this all just coincidence?

  • A spiritual fault-line …
  • An earthquake like none in many years …
  • Prayer driven by the Holy Spirit …

I leave the explaining over to your own interpretation.

What do you make of it all?

This is what I believe happened:
Prayer changes things in the spirit-realm. And when we pray, it sets things in motion which we don’t even understand.

That day, it was quite possible that God showed us

He will shake the world for us,

just because of a change in the spirit-realm …
