This is the 2nd week of SOT...wow...still as great...hmmm..though i need to sleep at 12 plus and wake up at 6.30am..i felt more enegetic then before and my colleague mention i look beta now...hee...hmmm...yesterday Bobby taught us on the topic about prayer...some of the things that really impacted me is as follow... hmmm..Bobby mention that as we go our weekly cg...if the number of people who shares testimony is very few or if it is always those few...it reflects on the prayer life of the members...cause God is a God who answer prayers..and if we pray to God, He will answer our prayers,so we should be sharing how God has blessed us or answer our prayers...if we do not share testimony, are we saying God did not answer our prayers or are we not testifying God's goodness...then next one is WHY DO WE NEED TO PRAY OUT LOUD? 1.Jesus lifted His voice to pray. 2.In the book of Acts,120 pray in the upper room that even the people on the streets can hear them. 3.In Acts 5 when the people were being persecuted, they pray put so loud that there was am earthquake. PRAYING FOR ONE HOUR: 1)Praise: I give God my love (Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Your name) to praise God in different names a)Jehovah Tsidkenu--"God is my Righteousness"(Jer 23:6) b)Jehovah M'kaddesh--"God is my Sanctification"(Lev 20:8) c)Jehovah Shalom--"God is my Peace"(Judge 6:24) d)Jehovah Shammah--"God is Present with me"(Eze 48:35) e)Jehovah Rapha--"God is my Healer"(EX 15:26) f)Jehovah Jireh--"God is my Provider"(Gen 22:14) g)Jehovah Nissi--"God is my Banner"(Ex 17:15) h)Jehovah Rohi--"God is my Shepherd"(Ps 23:1) Just alone praising God for who He is will take up 10mins... 2)Purpose:I give God my life (Your kingdom come,Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven)...pray for yourself(5 mins),your family(5mins).your church(5mins) and your nation(5mins).It will have take up another 20mins... 3)Provision:I give God my worries(Give us this day opur daily bread)...after you finished praying..dun worry anymore..be specific in everything that you pray...God wants you to pray instead of worry..learn to pray till you feel your burden is lifted up by the Lord.This will take another 10mins... 4)Pardon:I give God my Hurts (And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors)..a)Ask God to forgive you...b)Tell God who you want to forgive...make a choice to forgive and release those who have hurt you.c) Ask God to give you the right attitude toward others...we need to have a right attitude all the time,even in the presence of your offenders... 5)Protection:I give God my fears and temptations (And do not lead us into temptation,But deliver us from the evil one)Put on the armor of God Eph 6:11-18 a)Waist girded with truth--Jesus, You are my truth (Jn 14:6) b)Beastplate of Righteousness--Jesus,You are my righteousness (2 Cor 5:21) c) Shoes of peace--Jesus,You are my peace (2 Thess 3:16) d)Shield of Faith--Jesus,You are my faith (Gal 2:20) e)Helmet of Salvation--Jesus,You are my salvation (Hed 5:9) f)Sword of the Spirit--Jesus,You are my living Word (Jn 1:14)..this will take up another 5mins... 6)Partnership:I give God my sacrifice of Praise (For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever)...Praise God that His kingdom is forever...Praise God that His power is now available to you..Praise God that He has called you into His glory...and this will take about another 10mins..when u add all up together...your daily prayer life can jus easily hit an hour or even more..well..of course in between all this theology..there are a lot of testimonies,"jokes" that make the lesson more interresting... today Bobby taught us God's plan for prosperity and we were all pumped up..now i finally know why Jin Lian kept telling us to go SOT if we can...now i m in SOT myself..i really want to encourage you guys..start saving now..go for SOT next year..your life will be changed...now we are only goin thru CIC and Getting Started..but i am already blown off..imagine the months to come..well..of course Sot is not jus come listen and enjoy the word... we jus receive our 1st assignment today..it is due on 11/05/07...every chapter we have to write 100 words and in total the book have 52 chapters..haha..Bobby say it was one of the hardest assignment..if we can complete this..the rest of the remaining assignments will be easy..haha..hmmm...pray for me ya..those who wanna know more what we learn and bout all the interesting stories..can jus give me a call..or Dannon and Tianyi..we will be more thant glad to share with you..Siying..once your papers are over..i goin tell you whole lot of it :)
