World Network of Prayer – Light in Darkness

  Visit our website       Shedding Light on the Dark Things   From the beginning of creation, God has put a difference between light and darkness. He is the Great Emancipator, but also the Great Separator. God is not willing to let anyone perish, but scripture bears out that God does not force His will on anyone. There is a perfect will of God for His creation, whether mankind wants to embrace it or not. It is God’s will for light to overcome darkness, and righteousness to overcome wickedness.   God has been known to use circumstances to bring out the best and the worst in His creation. And nobody does it like Him. We have been warned of pestilence, earthquakes, wars, and other things that will come upon the earth. The true child of God realizes that this earth is not their home. While we cannot help being affected by what is going on in the earth, the Church must be in tune with what God is saying. We can only do this by connecting with His Spirit through prayer. Only then, can His light shine into the dark recesses of our hearts and minds, letting us know, like a spiritual compass, where we are at in our relationship with God.   While we seek the will of God during times of trouble, we see that the trials themselves are shedding light on things that could not be revealed without the shaking brought about by a crisis. Has our relationship with others been more important than our relationship with God? What is hidden in our hearts that we cannot see?   The Word of God says, “For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad” (Mark 4:22). Jesus was admonishing that no one lights a candle to hide it, but puts it out in the open where it can be seen. It is the will of God to reveal Himself through times of darkness. He is the true light. It is said that, “The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly” (Proverbs 20:27).   We must be willing to be transparent with God, and walk in the Spirit, allowing Him, not only to light our path, but to be our Counselor. King Solomon said that He dwelt in the thick darkness (see I Kings 8:12). It is in the dark times that the light can truly shine in the darkness, but only if we seek Him, allowing Him to reveal to us the hidden things that we cannot comprehend without them being exposed by the true light of the world. It has always been the will of God to separate light from darkness.   When Jesus was taken by the chief priests and elders to be crucified, He told them “this is your hour, and the power of darkness.” However, the darkness did not prevail because there was a resurrection day. We have that same resurrection power. It is up to us to pray so that He can make us of part of that city set on a hill.   Beth Marie Evans Apostolic Author Associate Minister International Christian Fellowship Brookfield, Illinois           LIGHT   We live in such a dark world, yet we are filled with the light of Jesus Christ. We must learn to let that light shine bright in every place we go. Matthew 5:14 and 16 says, “Ye are the light of the world…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”    Please pray:   we will not fear the darkness of this worldwe will learn to be a light no matter where we arethat those who want to leave the darkness will be drawn to God’s light in us  You will be ready to be a light to those who are seeking.   Tiffini Countaway Conference Services Manager MyHopeRadio Web Produce United Pentecostal Church International         The World Network of Prayer Presents 24/7 WATCH: A Year-Round Initiative for 24/7 Prayer   As of January 1, 2022, WNOP launched an annual 24/7 prayer and fasting chain worldwide in coordination with our existing “Year of Prayer.” Each week WNOP is posting a prayer focus as daily prayer for the entire week. Also weekly, a video is posted on the WNOP Facebook Page of a prayer leader and/or minister leading in periodic prayer. We encourage your participation by joining in prayer.   Will you commit and join with others throughout the world in united prayer and fasting? Sign up by committing in your heart unto God that you will consistently set aside a day each week to do some prayer and fasting. WNOP also has partnered with those in local churches who are already a part of a current 24-hour prayer chain. All of these hours of consecration are culminating to help provide a complete mass prayer covering over the entire Church body and to help bring greater success in all that we do in Christ! Together, let’s “watch and pray” and behold great and mighty things in the kingdom of God! Let’s prevail over the enemy with victory and declare, “Not on My Watch!”   Flo Shaw WNOP Director     MAY 24/7 WATCH (WEEK 2) City: Business & Economy   Following is the “24/7 Watch” daily prayer focus for this week.

    • None. Mostly a translation issue it appears in various places throughout the Bible in multiple translations as both refer to the same thing.
