Prayer Walk 2007
Friday, August 17, 2007
After Howard Hendricks' conversion, he went to his first prayer meeting. Everyone was getting up and uttering their flowery (and maybe showy) prayers. Finally, this new convert stood to pray and said, "Lord, this is Mel. I'm not sure whether you remember me or not . . . I met you last Tuesday night. I just wanted to say . . . well . . . Thank-you for changing my life." And then he sat down. The simplicity and honesty of that prayer brought tears to the eyes of many. I suspect it brought a smile to the face of the Father, as well.

This year's prayer walk started with Jonathan sharing about what prayer is all about-a two way communication with God. In prayer, we are to be:
Next, we were divided into a few groups. These groups, led by the leaders, walked around the school and prayed.
The prayer walk was great because God was listening to us. It was a fantastic experience just to pray around the school grounds, praying for the legalisation, the new committee, praying for the teachers, the new principle and the students.
And of course, for God's pleasing and perfect will to be done.
Be aware that God has already started His fantastic work in our school.
The prayer walk ended behind the physics lab. Some of us got high and started singing Majesty.
For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way. -Colossians 1:9,10
KEEP THE FAITH! Or we'll have to add you as a prayer item...
