It is prayer that will decide the outcome of this election (and fasting)!
The most important principle that Jesus taught us about prayer is – TO PRAY! That’s right:-
The bible is clear – we don’t know how to pray, so simply begin talking to God, knowing that the Holy Spirit will help us, and make sense of our prayers.
Here are 5 tips for success:-
1. If you’re a PASTOR: Please pray a few minutes with your congregation on Sundays BEFORE the kids go to their activities. There is power in unity – within a church, and inter-generationally.
2. If you LEAD a house-group or prayer meeting: Put praying for the election on the top of your agenda! Pray together with your group, EVERY TIME* you meet. If you don’t have a group – why not begin one, with one or two close friends – over the phone, or in person?
4. Join a prayer MOVEMENT. Watch out for important prayer initiatives e.g. Christians in Government, who organised prayer in front of parliament before the last election – and join!
