Let's Brew Prayer!

“Prayer is where the action is." John Wesley

"God does nothing except in response to believing prayer." John Wesley

Just a while more and the team will be assembled! One of the most important aspects of God's work is none other than Prayer. One of the things Christ's followers are often deceived about unknowingly is into thinking that the battle is in the physical. In fact, the battle is waging strongly in the Spiritual, not the Physical!

"Prayer strikes the winning blow; service is simply picking up the pieces." S.D. Gordon

We understand this truth & acknowledge that our team cannot do this alone. We humbly request for you all to partner us in prayer. YOU are a part of our team in the spirit! For the things of the Spirit are more real than the things of the flesh. The corporate Body of Christ can bear so much fruit together!

Ephesians 6:18
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

Philippians 4:6
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Romans 12:12
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Things to pray for:
  • Decisions for Christ to be made
  • Team Unity
  • Divine appointments
  • Commitment to listen for His will, not self effort
  • The children's hearts to be softened
  • The team's hearts to be softened
  • His will, not ours to be done!
  • More of Him, less of us (Christ to be lifted)
  • Against injuries/accidents
  • Smooth Transportation
  • CI Skits, Songs, Lessons & Stories
Families, thank you for being our "Watchmen"! We are merely empty vessels, only the Spirit can draw hearts to Himself. Ultimately, it is not about the Children's Institute, "accomplishing" or "doing" but it is all about Christ, The Father's glory, His will & His Kingdom!

2 Corinthians 10:3-6
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

Thanks everyone for praying for us!
