The Greatest Victories
“Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you shall glorify Me.” Ps. 50:15
“Jacob prevailed because he was persevering and determined. His experience testifies to the power of importunate prayer. It is now that we are to learn this lesson of prevailing prayer, of unyielding faith. The greatest victories to the church of Christ or to the individual Christian are not those that are gained by talent or education, by wealth or the favor of men. They are those victories that are gained in the audience chamber with God, when earnest, agonizing faith lays hold upon the mighty arm of power.” Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 203
What type of faith do we need to have? And how are our greatest victories gained? Share with a loved one some victories you have gained recently, or some victories that you need to gain. Pray for one another personally!
Day 7 - Prayer Focus
1. Pray that we will continue to look to God in faith, trusting Him with the uncertainties of our future, knowing that He is in control. Pray that we would trust God’s Word even when circumstances all around us seem dark and discouraging.
2. Pray for wisdom for church leaders and administrators as they work through logistical challenges in the re-scheduled General Conference Session, which will now take place May 20-25, 2021, in Indianapolis.
3. Pray that the General Conference session of 2021 will be filled with spiritual, mission-focused plans and that the Holy Spirit will be in full control.
4. Pray for the theme of the 2021 General Conference Session: “Jesus Is Coming! Get Involved!” Pray that members worldwide would even now take this call for Total Member Involvement personally.
5. Pray for a great Holy Spirit outpouring on God’s church members worldwide, wherever they are, that the work can be finished and we can go home.
