EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING

TEXT: 1 Kings 18: 41-45
1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing.”
The Christian life and ministry is a cross you need to carry daily. How much more when you are the leader of the Church and having other people to carry along? Can you carry this heavy load without prayer? You will quickly pack up; you will quickly go rickety like a worn-out car. Add prayer to your Christian life and see how easily you will run the Christian ministry.
The world is very dark, sinners and sins have filled everywhere. We must be ready to pray down revival as Elijah did. “And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain…” You have told the people (as Elijah said to Ahab): “Go, eat and drink, there is a sound of abundance of rain.
The rain that has not been there for three and half years is coming now!” You have told people, “Come to Holiness Movement, the Lord has raised up Holiness Movement to bring revival, righteousness, holiness in Christianity, to bring in harvest of souls.”
You have announced that, but it can only be accomplished by prayer.
You must be prepared to pray down God's glory and revival in His Church and Holiness Movement. We must go to the mountain; not a physical mountain in this case, but to go and cast ourselves down in prayer and fasting. This thing should not be just once. It should be organized in every country, every state, every chapter and every unit.
Holiness Revival Movement should fast and pray regularly because, if we want the blessing as we have promised the people, it shall be actualized by prayer. Go and pray! Let us pray that God will use us as His instrument to bring about this last day revival. Symbolically speaking, the earth has been dry for three-and-a-half years as in the days of Elijah.
For a long time, Christianity has been lost. The Church has been spiritually dry for a long time. We must pray in righteousness. When righteousness comes into the Church, all these religions making noise will bow on their own. Presently, they are strong because the Church is weak. If we get weak, they get strong; if we become strong, they go down.
It is automatic! A vibrant, strong and fervent Christianity will automatically subdue Islamic power. At the recovery of Christianity, powers of occultism in the nation will bow naturally and all enemies of the Christian faith will take to flight.
Thought for the day: A vibrant, strong and fervent Christianity will automatically subdue Islamic power.
Song For the day: Jesus power, super power!
Bible Reading for the Day: Micah:1-3; Revelation 10
