PRAYER

PRAYER   It was the exhortation of our Lord and Saviour (Jesus Christ) to His disciples that men should pray and not faint (Luke18:1). He urged His disciples to fervently pray for them not to fall into temptations (Matt 26:41). A true Christian is characterized by a life of prayer and constant petitioning for their needs and the needs of others including the non-believers. A Christian who doesn’t pray is likened to a limping Christian. The Bible shows examples of people who prayed, right from Genesis to Revelation. They include but not......

PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT

When you hear about praying in the Spirit, what comes in your mind? This subject of praying in the Spirit has attracted a lot of concern especially in our Christian Unions and a number of brethren and today, I prayed for God to give me some insight about it. Many of us think that praying in the Spirit is “constrained” to the gift of speaking in other tongues, today; I bring us an in-depth perspective. It’s praying “IN” Spirit, right? Let me begin with this conjunction “IN”, It can mean “by the means of,......

POETRY: VANITY OF THE WORLDLY THINGS

As he said vanity, so vain say I Oh! Vanity, o vain all under sky; Where is the man can say, Lo, I have found a brittle earth a consolation sound?   What isn’t in honor to be set high? No, the like beast and sons of men shall die, And while they live, how often do they turn their fate: He’s now a captive that was king of late. What isn’t in wealth great treasures to obtain?   No, that’s but labor, anxious care and pain; He heaps up riches, and......

GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY

Have you ever noticed that it is in difficult times that you grow stronger? And that you can have peace even in the midst of difficult circumstances? That’s when you are being stretched. When God is developing your character. One of my favorite stories in church history is that of Horatio G. Spafford, a wealthy lawyer and business man who lived back in the 1800s. Spafford’s story is not the success story, however, that we seek nowadays. In fact, he encountered horrendous tragedies in his life. First, he lost his real estate......

THE SILENT TEARS

The life of God’s sons is peculiar and He puts on their way a variety of things to handle and among them is, AWAITED GLORY. In fact the Bible tells us that the creation is groaning awaiting the revelation of the Sons of God and on the other hand these sons as Paul said, they groan each day not that they be unclothed but that they be further clothed. It is in the nature of God to pre-empt or to shed some light about the future to His People so that He......

WHEN FASTING IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE by Sharleen Kipturu

A story is told of a group which committed to fasting every once a week. They would meet in the meeting, each with a confession, whether they had been faithful or not. One day, a brother confessed that he had not fasted that day. Reason? He was not under the law. For the next few days, I battled the desire to eat and just go confess that I too, was not under the law! I do struggle with beating my flesh during fasting. On the very day I am supposed to be......
