My name is Andrew James Horton…
I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my early fifties…
I am blessed to be married with five children, five grandsons, and one granddaughter… 🙂
I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director living in Christchurch, New Zealand…
I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world…
I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He – the Lord Jesus Christ – desires her to be in our generation…
Back in early September 2010 I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, “a house of prayer for the nations – prophetic intercession for worldwide revival” and wanted me to “put it out there” and start recording the prayers which were on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which were on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we would participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He led us…
If the Lord leads you, let’s join together in prayer for the Lord’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation… 🙂

I am grateful that you were encouraged to remain in quiet confidence, and I am blessed to have now visited and read your blog. My passion has been prayer for the last 25 years and have always believed in ‘being prayer’ alongside doing it, so right now I find myself in the community and working in two women’s refuges in South Auckland helping the women to grow in strength and confidence – they are quite wonderful! I’m 63 and our children are now adult of course, but at this point in a very challenging and interesting life I feel like a child just learning to walk and pray all over again.
I’m pleased to meet you and will be returning to pray along with you from time to time. Much blessing, Judith
Amen Judith, the theme of rest permeates your blog… 🙂
Hola, I thought I would check out what is going on over here!
Hi Lisa, I’ve really been posting very little over here of late, Everything in its season I suppose, Love in the Lord, Blessings to you and your husband and to your entire family, Andrew
Hope you are doing ok,
I’m taking a break from the JTB site for a while, so I won’t catch you there, just wanted to encourage you, God has used your ministry to lead me forward, don’t let your zeal be dampened, may the Word of God dwell in you richly, blessing
I’m OK Gary, I’m learning what the Lord would have me learn from what has just taken place here in Christchurch and looking forward to what He will do here in the future…
I am encouraged – I began to get encouraged around 3pm on Thursday 29th September 2011 after the entire day of Wednesday 28th September 2011 and the morning of Thursday 29th September 2011 I was going through a lot of inner turmoil…
The evening of Tuesday 27th September 2011 was an incredible high point for me as we – seven of us – prayed in unity for Christchurch and made proclamations, “The Lord, The Lord has taken this land, Praise Him! Praise Him!” and blew the Shofars near the city centre…
We prayed around the four avenues for around two and three quarter hours in unity pouring out our hearts to the Lord and at the completion sensed a job well done…
Right up until around 8pm on Wednesday 28th September 2011 I didn’t have a peace to re-enter the city but at this point I did…
From 3pm on Thursday 29th September 2011 onwards I’ve sensed the sense of “impending doom” which I’ve sensed over the city for a number of months now but very strongly in the last three weeks or so to have lifted – it’s not there anymore – and I personally don’t believe there’ll be any more earthquakes here – as I see it – at this point in time…
For me it’s been a real season of prayer over the last few months and I feel secure that the Lord has heard for both Christchurch and Jerusalem and that these prayers will be answered…
God bless you brother Gary,
Love in the Lord,
I so appreciate your love and zeal for the Lord. Bless you and your family in all you put your hand to, to the Glory of our God and Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.
In His Great Love,
I really appreciate you too in the Lord Cindy, Love to you and all of yours in the Lord (Acts 4:19-20 NASB), We need to keep speaking about what we have seen and heard and not hold back, Great things are accomplished in the spiritual realm as we speak forth the words which He gives us and we speak before Him not before man and the devil and his demons tremble as we speak when we speak His word in obedience to His Holy Spirit, Press in is the word I get, Don’t retreat but press in, The Lord is with us and we shall surely overcome, Love in the Lord sister, Andrew
I wanted to express my agreement with what you’ve been writing on the RS blog about the future home of the believer. I’ve been blocked from commenting there for many months so couldn’t add my agreement in the context of that discussion. Here is the comment I tried to post on RS:
The future home of the believer is not heaven. It is firstly this earth, reigning with Jesus during His millennial kingdom. Then secondly it will be a new earth where God Himself will make His home.
“And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.’”
We are in agreement over this Tim, Bless you brother… 🙂
Hi Tim, Do you remember that lady who had the car crash who you asked us to pray for on JBTV? I always wondered what happened to her, I’ve had her on my heart and wanted to know whether she’s been completely healed yet… Do you have any update on her condition? Love you, Andrew
Andrew, I saw her a few weeks ago literally dancing down the aisles of the local supermarket. I didn’t know who she was (I’d never personally met her) until her husband turned a corner and joined her. The only visible sign of the accident was a large scar on her arm which had been all but severed in the accident.
Awesome, Praise You Jesus, Thank You Lord, we pray that You would heal any “leftovers” from the accident Lord, any arteries or ligaments or loss of feeling or anything else at all which could be wrong with her Lord and we ask that You would save her also and bring her to salvation in Jesus Mighty Name, Thank You Lord, Give Tim Divine opportunities to speak to her husband and her about You, Let Your Presence be all over Tim and let him be blessed to be able to give a reason for the hope he has in you to this couple and see them brought into Your Kingdom, Praise You Jesus, bless you brother… 🙂
Dear Andrew.. I just found your website. I am 77 and my husband is 83.. he has been ill for the last 5 years.. I am his care giver… so I am limited to any participation in the world arena except for prayer…we live in a small town in central California and are involved in many prayer groups by telephone..I am blessed to see you so involved.. do not lose your zeal for the Lord in His work.. will add you to my prayer list.. Blessings and Merry Christmas… Ginny
Thanks Ginny, I needed the encouragement as do we all. He sees all we do (in the good sense) and knows that we are quietly getting on with what He has given us to do (as you are) and He is pleased. We are blessed to be in His will and in His way for our lives. Love to you and your husband, Andrew
I am blessed to share your desire for the Body of Christ.
For the past two years I’ve been praying that each of us be brought to the relationship w Lord Yeshua that He desires to both share and be in us.
This prayer is based on three scriptures:
2 Peter 1:3&4 Made Partakers of Divine!
John 17:21-23 Same oneness w YHWH!
Matt. 5:3 To KNOW my poverty of spirit.
The last Scripture is the foundation of realizing my desperate state which drives me to the promises of the first two.
Now that I’ve been BLESSED to taste the Lord as life within, I have a passion that others Experience the same.
I also believe the Lord’s prayer of John 17 re our being given the SAME ONENESS with Abba that He enjoyed is key to our personal joy, seeing the good works we were created for (Ephesians 2:10) & seeing a global mass revival because the unbelievers see Jesus Christ vibrant in live and power in the Church…
Amen, Good to meet you Randy… 🙂
