Over 65 churches in the United Kingdom joined together to create a virtual choir and sing the Cody Carnes and Kari Jobe’s Christian anthem, “The Blessing” over the UK during these trying times.
The UK collaboration was inspired by The Pittsburgh Blessing in the US, which was recorded for Resurrection Sunday. The UK Blessing premiered last week and has since gone viral with over 2 million views (as of today) and continues to grow.
Standing together as one, our desire is that this song will fill you with hope and encourage you.The UK Blessing Collaboration

Tim Hughes, participant of the U.K. Blessing, spoke about the collaboration about the inspiration and heart behind the recording.
I hope this encourages you this week. I’ve been listening to it each day as I walk my dog in the evenings. This song is based on the Aaronic blessing from the Bible:
The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, Thus you shall bless the people of Israel: you shall say to them,
The Lord bless you and keep you;Numbers 6:22-27
the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
So shall they put my name upon the people of Israel, and I will bless them.
These virtual choirs continue to pop worldwide. People are joining together to sing blessings over the people of the earth. People are watching, asking for prayer, and asking how to know God personally.
Be encouraged! Jesus is alive and on the move!
Grace and peace,

I love this! Oh how I pray for Revival in the UK! I have been praying specifically since June 19th 2013 and for me it is because they were once a Cyrus Nation who blessed Israel. Now they are one of the most anti-Semitic places in the world. But there is a Remnant and I have been praying for them and I know that you have prayed for Revival in the UK for even longer! May we see it in our time!
