To bring people to Jesus Christ and membership in His family, develop believers to Christlike maturity, and equip them for their ministry in the church and their mission in the world, in order to worship God and magnify His name.
What a learning experience we had at Church this past Sunday. Mark Mirza led us in our Sunday school hour and our Church, teaching us how to use scripture in our daily praying to God. I hope each one of us will see the need and the importance of having an effective prayer life. We all need to have our quiet time and meditation with God. We have to put on the mind of Christ Jesus. A lot of people use the “ACTS” prayer theory. “A” is for adoration to God, “C” is for our confessions of our sins unto God and “T” is for our thanksgiving to God for all the blessings of life He has given unto us all. “S” is for our supplication and supply to God. Mark instructed us to use God’s word in our prayer life. God has reminded us that His word would not return to Him void. God’s Holy Word is a powerful two edged sword. God teaches us to be in prayer and fasting. We need to get serious about our daily prayer life. We are commanded to be still and know that I am God. Daily prayer is the life blood of our relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ, and praying in the power of God’s Holy Spirit. Prayer is one of the most powerful resources that God has provided for us to have that personal relationship with Him. We are commanded to pray to God in all things and without ceasing. Jesus prayed all the time to the Father, what an example for us to have this God given privilege. Pray for those that are lost, weak, hurting, lonely, rejected, poor, sick, dying, oppressed, enslaved, hungry, needy, and helpless. All of us no matter our status are needing prayer. Join me in prayer. I will be looking to worshipping with each one of you. Tell someone, bring someone be that someone to reach the lost for Christ. Brother Billy
