Mobilising, training and equipping Christians for prayer
Christians are in danger of allowing things and people to become more important, to receive a greater priority in their lives, than God. In 1 John 5:21, the apostle John warns believers to keep themselves from idols. We need to deal with these in order to experience revival in our lives.
Revival comes through Divine intervention from God. To be granted revival calls for believers to seek God in faith and with prayers that are saturated with the Word of God.
In Nehemiah 1, Jerusalem was in ruins, and God’s name and glory were at stake. In calling on God to restore Jerusalem, Nehemiah quotes from Deuteronomy. In the same way there are Scriptural reasons why God should grant genuine revival to His church.
In the Bible we find many instances that clearly show us the will of God. We do not have to pray about these constants. We simply need to obey and apply them.
Many people are asking questions about the complicated issue of same-sex marriages. There is wide consensus among many Biblical scholars about a Biblical view of this.
If you wonder whether it is God or the devil at work in your life, it is useful to look at the principles of God’s kingdom versus those of satan in order to discern who is at work.
Mormons believe that God, the Father, was once a man, but that he ‘progressed’ to godhood. They believe that worthy men may progress to become gods themselves. These beliefs are quite different from the Christian faith. We look at the central beliefs of Mormonism and how we can pray for them.

There are usually four sources of prayer burdens or prayer assignments. Not all prayer burdens are from the Holy Spirit and it is important not to commit to a prayer assignment without His consent.
Knowing and understanding God’s character, commands and works, will help us to discern His will and voice through the Holy Spirit.
