Prayer honors God because it is a declaration of dependence upon Him, especially in a time of crisis. A typical example is demonstrated by King Jehoshaphat when he was threatened by a multi-nation coalition. In the face of perceived helplessness, he turned to God as his only recourse. He uttered what someone has called a “battle prayer” recorded in 2 Chron. 20:5-12. Note the confessional and utter dependence that ended the prayer “O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are are upon You.”
Yes. Our eyes are upon You, LORD.
We have two important prayer calendars in front of us in the next few days.
- Our monthly ECWA USA Family Prayer ( on ZOOM now) on Sunday November 1. This is also our collective observance of the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP). Churches and prayer cells are to have local observance during their regular service.
We are also combining this with the conclusion of the ECWA Women Fellowship Week of Prayer. Time is 9 PM EST as usual.
- On Tuesday, November 3, is ECWA Global family Prayer and Fasting for Revival. Following the same format as the previous one, there will be three sessions as follows:
- 6 AM EST led by Elder Sam Umunna ,ECWA Chicago
- 12 Noon EST led by Elder David Oloruntoba, ECWA New York.
- 6 PM EST led by Elder Abednego Marshall , ECWA Houston
This will be via ZOOM also . The Link will be sent upon request. Zonal leaders who have questions about the link should please contact the DCC Chairman, Rev. Sunday Bwanhot.
Please feel free to participate as many times as you are able, but do participate at least once.
Blessings to one and all.
