Are You Longing To Do Something More For God?
Here Is A Way That You Can!
As age has caught up with him, Billy Graham has made very few public appearances in recent years. Sometime ago now, he granted an interview on Fox News. At age 92 you can see why he has made very few public events, however he is still very much of sound mind and thought. One of the questions he was asked was "If you could do it all over again, would you do anything differently?"
Billy's response was remarkable: "I would study more, travel less, take less speaking arrangements. If I had to do it over again, I'd spend more time in meditation and prayer and telling the Lord how much I love Him and adore Him and looking forward to the time we are going to spend together for eternity. "
" one survey indicated that Christians in North America were spending about three minutes a day in prayer. And the average pastor? About seven minutes. What would a survey of Adventist believers show? God invites us to join Him in "heavenly places" (Eph. 1:3) as we pray. By faith we can go there, clothed with Christ's priestly garments, to bring our requests. Are we doing so?"

One way we can increase our prayer times is by being a part of the Prayer Ministry here in Wollongong Church. We are seeking new members. You are invited to experience the power of prayer to know for a surety that prayer is one of the greatest ministries in the Christian life. Prayer is the basis for success in any endeavour we as a church will do. There is a lot at stake when you pray! When we intercede during the divine service hour we are partnering in prayer with our pastor or speaker for Kingdom results. It is a tremendous blessing to participate in this aspect of our Prayer Ministry.
Your prayers can make a wonderful difference in your own life and in the lives of the people for whom you have concerns.
You can talk to any prayer team member and they will tell you just how awesome it is to see at first hand wonderful answers to prayers. Indeed just recently we have witnessed a miracle outcome for someone on our prayer list. And our hearts praise and bless God that He has been glorified.
If you want to learn how to pray, here is an opportunity. You will be mentored in prayer and it is an ongoing process.
Have you had a longing to do something more for God? That something more is intercessory prayer. No matter what age we are or what our circumstances, we can all pray. We learn by doing. Now is the time! If Bill Graham who has done such a mighty work for God wished he had prayed more.... Don't put if off to decide. We are in need of our prayers. It is a life changing ministry. Won't you come and join us?
May God bless and lead you into a ministry that will capture your heart.
