Ye Shall Receive Power

Daily Devotional

Reading Time: 2 minutes

As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word. John 17:18-20.
My heavenly Father, I come to Thee at this time, just as I am, poor and needy, and dependent upon Thee. I ask Thee to give me and give this people the grace that perfects Christian character. Wilt Thou have compassion upon this people? Let Thy light shine into the chambers of the mind, and into the soul temple. My Saviour, Thou hast given Thy life to purchase Thine inheritance, that, as overcomers, they may enter the kingdom of God, where they shall go no more out forever.Bless those who have signified their desire to serve Thee. Put Thy Spirit upon them.

I ask Thee, heavenly Father, to let Thy Holy Spirit come to this people. May Thy salvation be revealed. Touch their hearts, and make them very tender. Soften them by Thy Holy Spirit, and help them to see the work to be done for their neighbors, and for souls that are perishing all around them. Oh, awaken them to their responsibilities! May they wash their robes of character, and make them white in the blood of the Lamb. Wilt Thou encircle them in the arms of Thy mercy? Plead with them through the impressions of Thy Holy Spirit, that they may try to let their light shine to those that have not known the truth. Put Thy church in order, O Lord, that they may labor for souls.

My Saviour, reveal Thyself to this people. Let Thy love be expressed. Oh, let it be revealed! Hold Thy people, that Satan may not have his will and way with them. Help them to press through all opposition, that at last they may lay their crowns at the feet of Jesus in the city of God; and Thy name shall have all the glory. Amen.—The Review and Herald, July 16, 1908.

Invitation to 4th Quarter Day of Prayer!

October 2, 2021 is designated as one of four special Quarterly Days of Prayer. Formerly the Day of Prayer and Fasting, this 4th Quarter we will focus on praying for wisdom how to understand and share the Three Angels' Messages. If ever there was a time in history that we should be preparing to share the Three Angels' Messages of love it is now. Spiritual darkness is thickening and we need His love and the Holy Spirit’s power to share the call to repentance and the good news of salvation with others. It is time to prepare for Jesus’ soon return. Join us for this special Day of Prayer.

Three Amazing Women of Prayer

Three Amazing Women of Prayer

Japan is one of the most difficult countries to reach with the gospel message. That’s why the world church invited a group of Japanese pastors to go to the Philippines to hold evangelistic meetings—some for the very first time—with the hopes they would return to Japan and hold their own series there. The plan was a success, but what we didn’t mention is that three courageous women—with no ministerial training—also felt called to join them and preach their own evangelistic series. Here is a short video of their stories. It reminds us, once again, that God calls not only those who are talented and able to do a task, but He enables all who are willing to go when He calls—and the results will amaze us every time!
