The next 10 years is crucial for all of us. Ten means completeness, we have ended one decade and started a new decade. We have prayed for 3 quarters primarily for our needs, this quarter we want to focus on the church – Good News Assembly Ministries. This is an opportunity to lay foundation for the next 10 years, to seek the face of God and sow good seeds, bear fruit and harvest bountifully – Ezekiel 47:1-12, Ps 1, Is 65:21-23.
We will go through the New Testament as a basis for our prayers. I pray the Lord will anoint us with revelation knowledge of His word, grant us wisdom and understanding, energise us to pray and strengthen us to obey the word in Jesus name. The scriptural references are not exhaustive; please feel free to add to it during your personal prayer time.
