FRESH FIRE AND INCREASING LOVE FOR OUR WEEKLY BIBLE STUDY AND PRAYER MEETING
Texts: Isaiah 40:29-31; Deut. 4: 29; ActS 2:42, 6:4
INSIGHTS FOR EFFECTIVE AND FERVENT PRAYERS: Surely, the entire GOFAMINT need fresh fire and increasing love for our Bible study and prayer meeting.
In the 60s and 70s, there were three weekly services, the Bible lecture, Gospel service and Friday Prayer meeting. People that have been members of the Church in those days and those who joined later, can never forget the power of God that were demonstrated through those services. Deep knowledge in the word of God, Salvation and conversion of souls, healing and miracles; even through simple prayer during preaching and teaching. The presence of God was so much present among them.
Todays weak experience calls for fresh fire and fervent love for both Bible study and prayer meeting. With what God did through those programmes in the past, we must cry to God to send down fresh revival fire back to us, on our side we should develop special love for good study of the word and spirit filled prayer, what God did through them then, will begin to happen again.
The bible study is for our growth and to strengthen us in this Christian journey. Prayer meeting is for our victory, power, blessing and protection, it is not possible to trade off these important heritages; since we don’t have another means. We need no persuasion before we attend bible study and prayer meeting; they are all for our good. In Nehemiah 8:1-10, revival broke out, when people of God returned to the word of God with all their heart, same will happen to us, when we go back to the word and prayer.
