Topic: Pray [Teens Open Heavens 23, June 2018]

Memorise: Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.Mark 11:24

Read: 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Bible In One Year: Esther 7-10, Acts 6

MESSAGE:

Prayer is the communication between man and God. It is the channel through which we are able to talk to Him and hear from Him. Imagine a child that does not speak to his father. That child will miss a lot. When you pray, several things happen; aside you making your petitions known to God, you may enjoy His company and vice-versa. The more you pray, the more like God you become, therefore you will begin to have authority over things that you used to be scared of. The secret of RCCG is embedded in prayers. My father in the Lord, Pa Josiah Akindayomi, used to spend long hours praying every day. It was in the place of prayer that God gave him a picture if the future of RCCG and how we will get there. It is no wonder we are where we are today.

Pray now so that your future will be bright. Pray for your parents, friends, teachers, school, neighbours, pastor, Church and everyone around you. Don’t hesitate to take anything to God in prayer. He cares about you, and He wants to keep your company. He is also willing to answer any prayer you pray to Him.

Action Point: When last did you set apart time to pray and seek the face of your Father in Heaven? Set aside at least one hour everyday to pray to God, and tell Him your heart desires.

Hymn 16:

1. Christian, seek not yet repose,
Hear thy gracious Savior say;
Thou art in the midst of foes:
Watch and pray.

2. Principalities and power,
Mustering their unseen array,
Wait for the unguarded hours:
Watch and pray.

3. Gird the heavenly armor on,
Wear it ever night and day;
Ambushed lies the evil one:
Watch and pray.

4. Hear the victors who o’ercame,
Still they mark each warriors’s way;
All with one sweet voice exclaim,
Watch and pray.

5. Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,
Him thou lovest to obey;
Hide within thy heart His word:
Watch and pray.

6. Watch, as if on that alone
Hung the issue of the day;
Pray, that help may be sent down:
Watch and pray.
