Ffald-y-Brenin: Local Houses of Prayer 

People across the world are intentionally praying for their neighbourhoods and workplaces, schools etc – as local houses of prayer. Some of us stay in touch across Australia and New Zealand and gather regularly to be blessed; practice blessing; and share our stories about becoming local houses of prayer.

Introduction to Ffald-y-Brenin 

Have you read Roy Godwin’s, “The Grace Outpouring” & “The Way of Blessing?”

Ffald-y-Brenin is a remote House of Prayer in Pembrokeshire Wales,  where God’s presence is miraculously impacting people with a revelation of God’s grace, healing and blessing. 

Due to COVID-19 everything is on lockdown at the moment so the centre is closed to visitors, and open to the Holy Spirit.  If you wish to enquire or book for residential stays, please email the Bookings Secretary, on bookings@ffald-y-brenin.org, or by calling +044 (0) 1348 881382.

Ffald-y-Brenin hosts prayer four times a day through a Daily Rhythm of Prayer. You can join this daily rhythm by purchasing your own printed copy of the Daily Rhythm of Prayer. See Resources below.

Ffald-y-Brenin challenges us to become local houses of prayer in our neighbourhoods and release the blessing – the abundant life of Jesus – on all around!

Enjoy a virtual visit… This Blessing Prayer  is followed by an introduction by Roy Godwin.

  • Introduction to Blessing

Choose to receive and overflow the bountiful blessing that God is releasing on all!

  • Deuteronomy 30:19-20  I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…
  • Jeremiah 6:16 Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and you will find rest for your souls.

The Hebraic Blessing from Numbers 6:22-24 says, May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’

Hebrew is a pictorial language and the word pictures in this text show:

  • YHWH will kneel before you presenting gifts and will guard you with a hedge of protection.
  • YHWH will illuminate the wholeness of His being toward you bringing order and He will give you comfort and sustenance.
  • YHWH will lift up His wholeness of being and look upon you and He will set in place all you need to be whole and complete.

Choose to become someone who carries, ministers to and release’s God’s Presence – His blessing – His kingdom come.

  • Deuteronomy 10:8 At that time the Lord set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark of the covenant of the Lord, to stand before the Lord to minister and to pronounce blessings in his name, as they still do today.
  • Numbers 6:22-27 This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:  ‘The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you  and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.’  So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.
  • 1 Peter 2:5,9 You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
  • Psalm 67 New English Translation “May God show us his favor and bless us. May he smile on us. (Selah) Then those living on earth will know what you are like; all nations will know how you deliver your people. Let the nations thank you, O God. Let all the nations thank you.Let foreigners rejoice and celebrate. For you execute justice among the nations, and govern the people living on earth. (Selah) Let the nations thank you, O God. Let all the nations thank you. The earth yields its crops. May God, our God, bless us. May God bless us. Then all the ends of the earth will give him the honor he deserves.”

Teaching on Blessing:

Are you aware of the power of blessing?

To Bless is to: 

  •   Honour as holy – to glorify – as in blessing the Lord
  •   Make holy – to sanctify
  •   Invoke divine favour upon others.
  •   Confer well-being, healing, prosperity.

    God’s Blessing will:

  • Encourage, lift up, instruction, comfort.
  • Heal people’s spirit mind, will, emotions, body and heal land etc
  • Open people to the Holy Spirit’s leading.
  • Release fresh insight, wisdom, authority, power and freedom.
  • Clarify  identity, purpose and destiny as ‘sons’ of God.
  • Lead people to godly relationships,  influences,  opportunities, provision.
  • Enable people to enter God’s kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy.  Ro 14:17
  • Fill places with God’s presence &  fruitfulness.
  • Endow – as with talent, gift, calling.Blessing is impartation…
  • so before blessing pause to connect with Father’s heart; to discern what the Father wants to release to them in this moment and His will and word for this person.
  • How do you access Father’s heart as your  source for the blessing?….. e.g. thru praise, worship, thanksgiving – listening/spoken prayer/tongues…
  • Impartation involves release of grace that the other person has to open to receive – so need Spirit led words, timing, space, significance of how it is done.

Before we can overflow God’s blessing: we need to receive our Father’s blessings, because we can only give away what we have received from Him…

You can receive Father’s Blessing now…

  • Download ( or order CD) Soaking Healing Prayers
  • 1. Healing and Relief from Fear & Anxiety
  • 2. Father’s Blessing of Love
  • from David Tensen. www.davidtensen.com
  • We recommend David’s seminar, Restoring the Father’s Blessing which gives us a framework for blessing 3 aspects of a person’s life.
  • 3D Blessing releases God’s spiritual formation of each person’s
  • Design: identity (Eph 2:10, Gal 2:20)
  • Destiny: life purpose (Isa 55:11, Jer 29:11-14)
  • Dominion: sphere of influence (Gen 1:27-30, 2:19, Deut 33:13-16)

Blessing DESIGN & DESTINY:

  • We all – especially our children – need to be blessed by our Father – and receive His help to know
  • Who am I? – addresses  a person’s perception of himself (gender etc) – his identity.
  • What am I worth?  – the value of their life (timing of birth, acceptance at birth etc)
  • Why am I here? – a person’s perception of purpose -destiny – function and significance on earth. e.g. What am I supposed to do?

For more on this see: Craig Hill & other resources above.

Seek your Father’s answers to these formative questions
(prompted by Graham Cook):

  • 1. How am I known in heaven?
  • 2. Why am I here on earth?
  • 3. What is my life message?
  • 4. Who are my people group?

When we know these answers we can overflow God’s blessing to others in purposeful ways and how when where will get clearer as we simply obey God’s leading.

Here are some more questions you can reflect on. We’d love to hear your responses:

  1. Are you a son of God filling and overflowing with blessing?
  2. Do you feel called to pray for a suburb/sphere of influence/people group?
  3. Have you already begun to pray for your neighbourhood/workplace?
  4. Are you willing to be listed as a Local House of Prayer in your area?
  5. Are you blessing people around you?
  6. Are you blessing what God is doing in your area?
  7. Do you know the houses of peace in your neighbourhood?
  8. If we are not doing this – let’s ask the Spirit of God to show us what is stopping us…
  9. Do you have any questions?

Blessing DOMINION:

  • To become  an overflow channel of God’s blessing and rule:
  • Know you are a priest – called to bless.  Num 6:22-27, 1 Peter 2:5,9
  • Ask God to help you identify deeply, as one with the people, business, land, neighbourhood, you will bless.
  • Confess all areas unforgiveness, judgment and offence in your own heart
    e.g. lack of love for them.
  • Ask God to show you what He wants you to repent of – on their behalf – so you (all) are cleansed from past and present sin.
  • Confess your sins and break the curses and   consequences of rejecting Jesus, shedding innocent blood, immorality, broken covenants. Genesis 26:24, Numbers 16:46-48, Jeremiah 14:7-, Ephesians 6:10-20
  • Release God’s blessings – His will, gifts, healing and purposes.
  • Blessing individuals, people groups and communities includes: personal identity formation, enabling people know they are ‘sons’ of God and receive our Father’s blessing. It includes honouring fathers and mothers and commissioning and honouring leaders 2 Timothy 2:1-3. It includes blessing your ‘enemies’ Genesis 17:17,  Matthew 5:44 and Israel Genesis 12:2-3, Numbers 6:26, Hebrews 8:8-12
  • Blessing climate, land, waterways, livestock, crops. Deuteronomy 33:13-16

Receive God’s Blessing through one of our beloved Indigenous Christian leaders to know you are welcome in this land of Australia:
Blessing Fathers, Sons  & Daughters by Apostle Norman Miller. 

  • Examining the distinction between praying, prophesying and blessing. 
  • Pray is speaking to God. Prophesy and blessing are spoken to a person; people group etc.
  • Blessing includes naturally worded encouragement or grace, or generic life affirming truth  as well as prophetic – future telling revelatory word.
  • Blessing is a form of prophetic declaration – and so helps us see and hear the Father’s perspective of a person, place and season. We can bless God’s release of what is needed to equip people with the new anointing/ graces that Father wants to equip them with for next season. (e.g. fruit and gifts of the Spirit)

Practice receiving & releasing God’s blessing:  

  • Ask Holy Spirit to give you the words, pictures, Scripture, song that will encourage build up and support each other. Start with brief, natural and simple encouragement.
  • Bless Your Family
  • at key times in life: birth, birthdays, transitions. See Craig Hill’s book , The Power of a Parent’s Blessing.
  • by adopting God’s pattern of weekly Sabbath family blessing – and see your parents (Exodus 20:12), extended family, marriage, children, gardens and business flourish. Children grow strongly in gender formation, identity formation, development and relationships – favour with God and man.
  • Bless your Neighbours, Regions and Nations.
  • Blessing releases God’s power! Jesus’ kingdom rule is released when, in His name:
  • We bless the Lord – through worship, adoration and thanksgiving.
  • We declare God’s blessing– voicing our faith in His character, Biblical promises, and leading.
  • We speak blessing– natural encouragement within authentic relationships with local people.
  • We are a blessing –  acting kindly and releasing Jesus’ power for healing, provision etc.
  • Blessing your area – Ffald-y-Brenin  blessing your region called ‘Friday Blessing’. Permission is given to use this prayer that was repeated on all of the 70 days in each of the places across the United Kingdom where the Olympic torch was carried.
