Do everything for the glory of God and invest in the lives of others (1 Cor. 10:31-33).
God has put the right people in your life not only will you help them rise higher and fulfill their purpose, but you will rise higher too! being connected to others is one of life’s greatest joys, you realize that life’s best comes when we invest in people and relationships. So, if you really want more out life, then start to and invest your time, knowledge and wealth in solid relationships!
“An experiencing God lifestyle is always seeking out ways to serve and sacrifice for the good of others and the glory of God.” Self-centeredness is a good sign you’re not experiencing God.
“An experiencing God lifestyle is burdened by an ever growing, God-centered, holistic compassion for people. It’s not about you. Jesus is asking you, ‘Do you love Me and people?’ It’s not about your happiness but your holiness first.” ~ Patrick Payton
Everybody is called to pray. Please pray for the following!
The UNREACHED in Ethiopia, Djibouti, Eritrea, Somalia, Kenya, and South Sudan
Pray for the most important leaders of these countries – that the Holy Spirit will take away their spiritual blindness (2 Cor. 4:4). Pray for supernatural/extraordinary manifestations of God through dreams, healing, revelations and visions, etc. among the unreached of these countries (Acts 2:19; 4:30; Heb. 2:4). Pray that the Spirit of God will raise people from these countries to build a strong church among their own people. Pray that God’s Name be glorified and honored wherever the Truth is suppressed or denied. Pray that God’s Kingdom come and rule and His will become effective where it is defied and where it is opposed by His enemies! (Matthew 6:9-10)
The CHURCH of the UNREACHED and all over the World
It is the task of the church of Jesus Christ to take the Gospel of Salvation to the nations of the World. Pray that the Church of Christ will take the Commission in Matthew 28:18-20 literally. Pray for the church to gain a new vision for mission work. Pray for the Church to persevere despite persecution. Pray for unity among the small groups and against false doctrines that often come and destroy the young congregations. Pray for outpouring of the Holy Spirit on them (Acts 4:31).
For the SALVATION of the people from the UNREACHED
Pray that whole families will become converted – it makes it easier for the converts to remain standing. Pray that the Holy Spirit will work in their hearts in a divine way and urge them to search for the True God in Jesus Christ. Pray especially for the redemption of individuals who are leaders or who are in positions of authority in all countries. Pray that these people will openly confess their sins and their faith in Christ and that they will also follow Him openly.
If my people who are called by name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. – II Chronicles 7:14
