TEACHING ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT

THIS IS AN EXCELLENT CLASS ROOM FOR BIBLE STUDY
WEDNESDAY EVENING STUDY

PRAYER: ....Prayer what is it?
  • Prayer is not for altering God's purposes but for accomplishing them. In prayer we are privileged to exercise a partnership with God.

  • What is needed is for Him to fill our heart with His thoughts and then His desires will become flowing back to Him.

THEN 1 JOHN 5:14-15 WILL BE A LIVING REALITY.
  • 14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
    1 John 5:14-15

YOU ARE PRAYING IN JESUS NAME FOR THIS.......
  • Let say you have one or two request you are personally praying for specifically and you know its God's will and you want the church (local body of believers) to pray that it will be accomplished, what would those request be?


WHAT SHOULD WE BE PRAYING, KNOWING THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD FOR US AND OUR CHURCH BODY? What does God want to accomplish in His Church for His Glory?


First Topic of the night was PRAYER
