Early Morning Prayer June 2016 – Rise to Serve.

What a glorious morning arise and show love to all you meet this day.
Tell people how much they mean to you…express the love at all times
I love you all…you lift me up when I need encouragement, you inspire me, you answer my prayer requests when I find it difficult to push through, you counsel me, you make me laugh till it hurts…all through the Word…may God bless you all mightily always.
Enjoy the love in Christ.

Testimony from Detention Camp

Mighty is our God, doing wonders and confounding the enemies.

I want to thank God who is my advocate, miracle worker, and merciful father for his love towards me and also I appreciate you all for your prayers and words of encouragement.

I have been in detention camp for some months now but agreeing in prayer with you all and now I can truly say the Almighty God has set me FREE.

I have just been released (Hallelujah) and look forward to Arising to Serve.

We must know who we are in Christ. Just as it states in St John 13. Jesus knew who He was so changing his garments would never change who he was. Being placed on the cross only confirmed who He was…Lord help me to wear with joy the garment of praise in every situation.

Early Morning Prayer – Rise up to serve.  I joined in prayer late. But what was mentioned touched my heart.  It was a saying that was mentioned ….that we are so heavenly bound and no earthly good. It made me smile and then I really thought about it. Our minds are on heaven. But we need to remember that we are also on earth to serve others and encourage others in the word. Be careful not to be in our rocking chair saying it’s all about me and nobody else and remain in self-pity. We need to rise up and think about somebody else and carry on with God’s work. Why not ring someone or visit, remember Jesus died for us. Sometimes when we feel God is not with us, let us run after him. Praise God and continue to wear his armour.  Remember if we submit to God he will submit to us.  Have a blessed day ????????   Sis Jennifer, West Midlands

I was very blessed this morning the word that came to me but couldn’t share it because of my voice is about Jacob when God told him to arise and go to Bethel. Bethel is the house of God, this is a place where we can meet with God , our closet is our Bethel the platform where we met this morning is our Bethel but before we can get there we need to put aside our idols anything that we put before the almighty God , our husbands ,children, jobs etc. Sister Gwen talked about disrobing when we’ve done this we will be able to arise these things are chains that have held us down, stopping us from arising to minister in love but by the grace of God we will arise in Jesus

???? Rise to Serve.

Some points to consider:

  • -Make sure our worship is not contaminated
  • -Defeat of fear is LOVE
  • -Some find it difficult to arise because they are not 100% confident of who they are in Christ
  • -Serve God with a right heart.
  • (2 Chronicles 25:2 KJV) And He did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart.
  • -Don’t serve out of duty but with compassion and LOVE
  • -How will we arise today?
  • -To arise is to serve in LOVE
  • (Micah 7:8 KJV) Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me. ????
  • Let’s rise today with an objective to serve.
