Prayer for the 85th UPCI General Conference
The 85th General Conference of the United Pentecostal Church convenes in St. Louis on Wednesday, September 30, 2009.
We have never in all of human history lived in an age to compare with the one in which we now live. That is not news to you. Tension and strife, wars, earthquakes and prophetic events of far-reaching proportions are occurring. It appears time is running out and civilization’s days are numbered.
But we have the PROMISE. “In the last days saith God, I will pour of My Spirit upon all flesh.” For your prayer on Sunday, September 20, let’s ask God to grant repentance worldwide in every people group that they may seek the Lord with humility.
Acts 3:19 “Repent ye therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.” Pray that repentance will grip the hearts of men, women and youth around the world from every culture.
Secondly, let’s pray for a revelation of New Testament Apostolic baptism. That various religious groups would see that water baptism was/is always performed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Pray for this revelation to come to pastors and church leaders worldwide.
Thirdly, as we have mentioned, pray for an outpouring of the Holy Ghost upon us at conference. We do not want conference as usual. We are asking God to step into our meetings and stir us up and shake us from complacency. God, give us a visitation of Your Spirit like never before. Let this conference experience a spiritual breakthrough.Thomas Suey International Coordinator World Network of Prayer .
