WAITING ON GOD (Day3)
Today was the third day of fasting and prayer in our church. The response so far is very encouraging. Each day at 5 pm the brethren come to pray. Each day the church is full like it is Sunday service. Today Pastor Timi shared the message. These are the main points: We are transitioning from a ‘small’ church to a much bigger one. God is calling us to serve Him, to be willing volunteers in His house. There is need for the brethren to come and join the different ministries. Just like Gideon called the people of God saying that there is need for the sword of the Lord and that of Gideon. God calls people to His service so that He can bless them. He said: “The sword of the Lord and of Gideon!” (Jdg 7:18). We prayed for our church activities in December: the Nativity Drama, the Dedication of the church and Jesus Mega Party. We prayed that God will be in control and many souls will be saved thru them.
We are to pay our ‘vows’ to God. We have promised to worship and serve Him. Now is the time to do so! As we are faithful to God, He will answer our prayers. God will bless us. “Offer to God thanksgiving, And pay your vows to the Most High. Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me” (Ps 50:14, 15).
We also prayed for our marriages, that God should have mercy and stabilize our homes. This is the truth: if the home is in confusion the church will be weak. We need strong stable and godly families. Lastly, we prayed for our health. Some brethren are too sick to attend church services. We prayed for miracles of healing, for peace and joy!
