WEEKLY PRAYER POINTS FROM 31ST MARCH TO 6TH APRIL 2015.
Pray for the 3rd batch of students attending the Autumn Session 2015.
Let us pray for the third batch of students attending the Healing School session. We will declare that their faith is their currency for their healing. By the stripes of Jesus Christ they are healed and their lives are changed by the mighty healing power of the Lord which is upon their lives. None of them shall say: I am sick - for greater is He that is in them than he that is in the world. “And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick…….” (Isaiah 33:24).
The International Easter Youth Camp with Pastor Chris – April 2ND TO 9TH 2015.
Pray that the youth will be fired up with divine energy after receiving the Word of God at the International Easter Youth Camp. The Word says in Daniel 1:19, “……and among them none was found like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah;” declare that the youth will be a burning and shining light unto their world and the Glory of the Lord will be seen upon them – they will change other people’s lives and win them for Christ. Amen.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:2-3 Message
2 Don't shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ––that's where the action is. See things from his perspective.
3 Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life––even though invisible to spectators––is with Christ in God. He is your life.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
Philippians 4:8-9 Message
8 Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious––the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.
9 Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself...(1 Corinthians 14:4).
As a Christian, when you speak in tongues, you edify yourself; that means you "embolden" yourself. This is the antidote for timidity and fear! It’s something you can, and should do for yourself from time to time; building your spirit strong by speaking in tongues. It’ll transform you automatically from being a weak, fearful person, to a bold, confident, and courageous person!
The Bible says, "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind" (2 Timothy 1:7). Thanks be unto God, for giving us the key to maintaining boldness and dominion at all times, even in the face of staggering oppositions, through speaking in tongues.
If it ever looks as though fear is creeping into your heart, or you’re feeling nervous about something, speak in tongues! As you do, your faith will rise, and fear will dissipate. Jude 1:20 says, "But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost."
There’re times you might experience difficulty in remembering things; speak in tongues. The reason is that your spirit doesn’t forget anything; the information is in your spirit, so when you stir your spirit, the answer will pop up!
Don’t take speaking in tongues lightly, for it produces divine energy that repels fear, and confounds the enemy. It emboldens you and imparts courage to your spirit. It produces in you, a sense of mastery and dominion over adversities; it’s a "spirit-to-Spirit" communication that energizes you from within. Practise speaking in tongues regularly; it’s the fastest way to activate your spirit, and energize yourself for victory.
I’m full of the Holy Ghost! And as I speak in tongues today, I’m edified, and my spirit is conditioned to receive guidance and light from the Lord! I’m strengthened and fortified to do the things of God, and exercise dominion over circumstances, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (2 Peter 1:4).
In Christ Jesus, we have the transcendent life; a life of glory, virtue, and excellence. It’s a daily experience of the miraculous, and walk in the supernatural. Jesus proved that this is possible. When He walked the earth, He was one hundred per cent man and one hundred per cent God. He manifested the divine life, and the supernatural was His daily walk.
As Christians, we’re partakers of His divine nature (2 Peter 1:4); as He is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17). Therefore, like Him, we’re called to live perpetually in the supernatural, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Paul said in Colossians 1:29, "Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily." There’s an ability working in you, and that ability is supernatural! That means your physical ability should no longer dictate or determine how much you can do; no limitations for you anymore!
Recall how Samson defeated one thousand trained soldiers of war with the jawbone of an ass. The Spirit of God came on him, and he was divinely enabled for the supernatural. With us, it’s even better, because the Holy Spirit lives in us. That means our potentials are limitless! The Bible says, "Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God" (2 Corinthians 3:5). God’s supernatural ability is at work in you to enable you to achieve results that can’t be humanly explained.
Take advantage of the divine ability that’s at work in you; 2 Corinthians 4:7 says, "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us." We actually don’t have any excuse but to live triumphantly every day! Jesus did everything that was required for us to live in the supernatural, every day!
Dear Father, I thank you for making me a champion and a victor forever! My spirit, soul, and body are under the dominion of your Word, and the influence of your Spirit! Your righteousness is unveiled through me today; I manifest the Christ-life, reigning and ruling over circumstances, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour (Titus 1:2-3).
The Bible says, "…all the promises of God in him (Christ) are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" (2 Corinthians 1:20). The eternal life that He promised before the world began was fulfilled when Christ came: "For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us" (1 John 1:2).
Jesus came to do much more than die for our sins; His death was a means to an end: to give us eternal life—the God-life. We’ve become partakers of the divine nature—associates of the God-kind (2 Peter 1:4). In 1 John 5:13, the Apostle John writes, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life…" Eternal life isn’t something you’ll have in the sweet by-and-by; it’s a promise fulfilled. It’s the possession of the one who believes in Jesus Christ, being a gift from God: "…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23).
Eternal life has come! Once, it was a promise, a hope afar off, but Christ has died; Christ is risen, and we were raised together with Him to a newness of life. He’s brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel (2 Timothy 1:10). This is what excites us to preach the Gospel, and tell men and women about Jesus. He came, not just to save humanity from sin, but also to give us eternal life—the God-life. True Christianity is the pulsating life of Christ in a human person; it’s the revelation of eternal life.
Dear Father, I thank you for the privilege granted me to make the Gospel known to those in my world and the regions beyond! I declare that as many as hear the Gospel today, their hearts will be open to receive, and their minds able to understand, accept and live by your message of life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
F u r t h e r s t u d y: Matthew 28:18-19; Acts 13:48
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:18).
Our opening verse describes the glory that comes from the Word of God. This glory is in the realm of the spirit; the realm we were born into as Christians. It’s the same realm that Jesus passed into after His resurrection; it’s a real place and we live there now. It’s a realm of glory and through meditation on the Word, we’re catapulted to that realm; the Word of God delivers that glory to us, and brings us into the glory.
As we look into the mirror of God, which is the Word, we’re "transfigured" into the same image of God’s glory that we see in the Word. The more you look, the more you’re changed. How do you look into the Word? It’s not by leafing through the pages of the Bible as you would a newspaper; it’s through intense study and meditation. Through meditation, the Word takes root in your spirit, and becomes one with your spirit; it creates a picture in your mind: the image of God’s glory. Thus, it matters what you see, when you "look" into the mirror of God.
For example, the Word says you’re the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus; let that be what you see. See yourself as the justified one; the one who’s been declared "not guilty!" 1 Corinthians 6:11 says, "… but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." See yourself as such!
Keep talking the Word, regardless of circumstances. The Word in your mouth will grow mightily and prevail over adversities. That’s the glory of the Word. As you meditate on the Word and speak it forth, you transcend to the realm of glory, where you view life from the mountain top, seeing only possibilities.
Remember, you’re triumphant in Christ Jesus; you’ve already overcome all things; the whole world is yours. Stay your mind on these realities from God’s Word. See yourself in health, wealth and prosperity. Hallelujah!
Dear Father, I thank you for the glory in your Word, which is evident in my life. I’m making progress in life, and winning every day. I have the mind-set of a champion, and the wisdom of God mantles my heart, evident in the excellence of my words and actions today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
