Transform Richmond

This group is for those taking the Journey to Transforming Revival TOGETHER from the larger Metro-Richmond area. It is a source of encouragement. Smaller area groups are in process of being formed.
June 17th, 2019 Kim Marble Welcome to Marilyn and Jim Bennetch! Those praying in the area haven't been using this site very much to connect. I will do my best to connect you to Sherrie Moore who began this site. She is also the director of Richmond International House of Prayer and Encounter. I don't think this site is working too well. I was not able to respond to you directly so I don't have access to your email. If you would like to email me directly at, I will put you in touch with Sherrie. God bless you for your willingness to pray together for our corner of the world...…………….And since the only way to get a message to the Bennetches was to send this out to all of those still signed up on the Transform Richmond site, I'll give you a GOD NEWS UPDATE. Our group in Chesterfield (Garden District) prayed together for over 4 years focused on the Route 1 Corridor. God has been at work all along and there are many stories to tell. After one year of not meeting together in our home the burden was still heavy on my heart for community-wide prayer, praise and individual and community transformation. We are now seeing these things happen. A bedrock group of faith leaders is emerging with a heart for those in need in our community. The County is becoming more responsive and early signs of revitalization are being seen in plans for the area. New churches have been started along the Corridor (some being called specifically to this area), faith community breakfasts have been held for over two years, churches are working together across racial and denominational divides, mission teams are working to repair a few homes, the County obtained grants for sidewalks in a dangerous area, a transit (GRTC bus) pilot project is in the works, parks are being planned, community clean ups are happening, civic associations are becoming reenergized. There is much yet to be done and it has not all been easy but we can definitely say that GOD cares about our communities even more than we do and He is at work among us. We want individuals, families, neighborhoods and regions to be transformed by Jesus Christ: heart, soul, mind and strength. We are looking for souls to be saved and then discipled and equipped for the work of ministry of being salt and light to the world. And we want to worship as a community to celebrate the Lord together. Be encouraged! God is at work. He is answering our prayers to build His Kingdom right here in the Richmond area.

June 17th, 2019 Marilyn & Jim Bennetch Hello,
My wife and I live in Glen Allen and signed up for Transform Richmond. We are not on the map, nor are any members of Transform Richmond who live in Glen Allen, as far as I can tell. How can we contact folks in our area if we want to get together for prayer?

December 26th, 2016 Kim Marble Australia invites Christians all over the world to pray at sunrise on New Year's Day.

I love this idea by our friends down under. I plan to join people all over the world in praying at sunrise (from my home in Chesterfield) on New Year's Day...It would be cool to cover the Greater Richmond area...and prayer on New Year's Day. Here is the link to the article and short video with the invitation. Hope you will check it out and consider joining us in welcoming the Lord into our new year from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets on New Year's Day.

James 4:10 that we will humble ourselves in the sight of the LORD JESUS.
John 15:7 that we will abide in JESUS and have HIS WORD abide in us.
Matthew 3:2 that we will repent because the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. That we will turn from our dependence on ourselves, popular people, wealthy people and our government instead of GOD. That the hearts of our political leaders will turn to depend on JESUS and declare that we are on nation under JESUS, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
That President elect Donald Trump will declare the USA to be dependent on GOD and HIS guiding hand as part of the inauguration. That GOD will strengthen the hand of the believers surrounding President elect Trump.

October 27th, 2016 Kim Marble Here's some good news. Charles City County is hosting a Unity Rally this Saturday for reconciliation and transformation. Come join us and see what God is doing in Charles City County.

Unity Rally
Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016 10:00 am till noon
Charles City High School Football Stadium
(Auditorium in case of rain)
10039 Courthouse Road
Charles City, VA 23030

This rally for reconciliation is sponsored by the Fire House Prayer Group in Charles City. The following is excerpted from their flier:

It’s time for reconciliation.
Let’s come together as believers in Jesus Christ to
seek God’s presence through repentance,
humility and mutual honor; and to petition Him
for reconciliation, unity and safety in our
county and the nation.

I pray that they may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one-- I in them and you in me –so that they may be brought to complete unity. John 17:21-23

October 26th, 2016 Kim Marble Prophetic word by Lana Vawser (Australia): ‘People of the USA, agree with Me as I am building and undercurrent of victory.'

I have sat on this word for quite a while and pondering it with the Lord and really praying it through. I am releasing this word now as it has been stirring strongly in my spirit for a while and I feel the Lord wants to bring encouragement to His people amidst all the turbulence happening right now in the USA.

As I was spending time with the Lord recently the 'turbulence' happening in the spirit and in the natural over the USA right now, and the burden I have been carrying in my heart because of all I am seeing going on in the nation and the Church came flooding back to me again.

As I lay there in worship I had such an incredible sense of the invitation from the heart of God to be AGREEING with what He is declaring. The atmosphere all around me felt electric and pregnant with the invitation to partner with the Lord in declaring VICTORY over the USA right now more than ever. The sense surrounded me of the incredible war in the spirit that is taking place and the enemy is not happy and doing all he can to pervert, to steal, kill and destroy all in an attempt to foil what God is declaring and inviting His people to declare right now and see manifested... VICTORY!

I have spent a while sitting on what I heard and saw in that time with the Lord and have been in deep intercession for the beautiful nation of America and for God's people in the nation.

As I was praying about what I heard and saw in that time, days later, I heard the words "People of the United States of America, AGREE with Me as I am now "BUILDING AN UNDERCURRENT OF VICTORY!!!!"

The word "UNDERCURRENT" was highlighted so clearly to me, so I looked at the dictionary definition of the word UNDERCURRENT:

UNDERCURRENT: 1. an underlying feeling or influence, especially one that is contrary to the prevailing atmosphere and is not expressed openly. 2. a current of water below the surface and moving in a different direction from any surface current. (

Do not be swayed, deceived or distracted by "current atmosphere's" or the atmospheres that feel like they are "prevailing", God is doing things BELOW THE SURFACE. God is setting things up, He is moving, He is orchestrating things and YOUR PRAYERS AND AGREEMENT with what He is doing is POWERFUL.

His Spirit is like that current of water below the surface that is bubbling and building momentum to move things in a different direction to what is being SEEN on the SURFACE. A definite demonstration of Zechariah 4:6: "So he said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty."

This is why it is IMPERATIVE that the people of God have eyes to see and ears to hear in this season, because what is happening in the 'natural' is NOT THE TRUE REALITY. What HE is doing in the Spirit, what HE is doing below the surface, what HE is saying, THAT is REALITY and the people of God MUST be positioned as an ECHO of what He is SAYING over the UNITED STATES right now! A partnering with what the Spirit is saying is crucial. I believe He is decreeing LIFE and VICTORY! He wants LIFE and He wants VICTORY! He wants FREEDOM! He wants HEALING and RESTORATION for the United States of America! He wants to USHER IN a move of His Spirit in this nation that has NEVER been seen before. He wants LIFE and not death!

As I sat taking all this to the Lord, I saw HOSTS AND HOSTS of ANGELS being sent into the United States but they were going in "stealth". They were "under the radar" and the Lord positioning them in STRATEGIC TRIGGER POINTS across the nation. They were sent with a specific purpose and assignment and they had landed and were stationed and waiting for the Lord's command to "ACTIVATE" that which He was planning and releasing. The sense surrounded me that the Lord has VICTORY UP HIS SLEEVE! Just when the enemy thought he had won, and brought chaos, death and destruction to the nation, God will release the COMMAND to these angelic hosts and STRATEGIC TRIGGER POINTS will be activated and the DOMINO EFFECT OF VICTORY will take place. What He has been planning and strategizing behind the scenes will MANIFEST.

Where man is attempting to pull the "current" in a certain direction, the Lord is building and increasing the DIVINE UNDERCURRENT to RELEASE VICTORY, but we MUST intercede and AGREE with HIS VICTORY!

July 1st, 2016 Kim Marble God has been speaking to me about "standing firm on the firm foundation."

258 years ago today, Samuel Davies preached his last sermon at Polegreen Church in Hanover County, VA. And TODAY, God is honoring this man who is part of the bedrock of religious freedom in America. As the nations and kingdoms of this world are being shaken, the work of this man, Samuel Davies is standing firm, having been built on the true cornerstone of Jesus Christ. Even the building he preached in did not survive our own civil war which occurred less than 100 years after our war with England had been settled. I think it is no mistake that only the foundation remained of the original Polegreen Church. We in the American Church have been guilty of watering down the truth to meet our needs and building our own edifices upon the sandy foundations of our own political agendas, and promoting our own personal success. Not only did Samuel Davies preach the truth when it was unpopular and barely legal, he shared the good news with and exalted the position of slaves and welcomed them to his meetings when it was considered heretical and disruptive to do so. He was a man of faith, courage and integrity, acquainted with grief and loss, whose foundation in Christ was firm when life, up-close-and-personal, was shaky and uncertain. May we follow in his footsteps and continue to build upon the foundation of Christ. (Here is a link to a 7 minute CBN special sent to me today which is about to be released about Samuel Davies and Polegreen Church: )

I also don't think it is happenstance that the events that happened on the grounds of Polegreen Church have been memorialized by a structure that resembles what I call "the church without walls." As I understand the prophetic words being spoken about the upcoming revival and harvest that is upon us, it will look very different than we might expect. I believe it will take place in "a church without walls." I believe the revival will take place in the streets... that the Lord will meet people where they are. But this eminent revival will not be "fly by night." It will be joined to the structure God has been building through the ages. A kingdom not built with hands, one built on the firm foundation. Our prayers will join the prayers of godly men like Samuel Davies, along with godly women and children, who sought a firm place to stand in tumultuous times and who stood firm upon the firm foundation.

God is building this house, this Church, and it will not be shaken.

We are seeing tiny sparks of life as our ongoing prayer meeting for the Route 1 (Jeff Davis Highway) Corridor is spilling over into the neighborhood next to it. A few folks who live at the Bellwood Maisonettes and Shady Hill trailer court are spontaneously joining us to pray for their community which has been recently plagued with an emboldened drug house right in their neighborhood. I am just realizing we have been praying outside in the streets.

May we all continue to pray and work at the direction and leading of the Holy Spirit. May He blow upon these few sparks, and upon the many other sparks in other areas of the Greater Richmond area, and bring true and lasting transformation to our region. May we stand firm upon Christ's firm foundation with humility, faith, expectation, and thanksgiving. May we be built as living stones into God's unshakable Kingdom.. on earth as it is in heaven.
