Date: Friday 7 October
Theme: Prayer And Joy
Memorise: Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete. – John 16:24
Please Read: John 16:23-24
16:23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
16:24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
Bible In One Year: Numbers 5:11-7:11, 2 Corinthians 1:12-2:11
Prayer allows you to hear good news (Luke 1:5-17). While the church prayed, the angel appeared to Zachariah to give him good news. This shows that prayer brings out the good news hidden behind sad situations. No wonder, Jesus is saying ask until your joy is full. Have you been sad? Pray and you will hear the good news that will change your life.
Prayer will reveal God’s plan. John’s birth was prophesised during prayer time.
If you want God to show you your future – pray. Some people go through important periods in their lives without praying and miss opportunities. This season, your prayers will work for you. Ask Him about your future. It is well with you.
