00:11 Welcome to day eleven of, Ten Days of Prayer;
00:15 a prayer strategy from the Revival and Reformation
00:17 initiative of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
00:20 For ten days we've gathered at this same time to pray
00:24 and to praise.
00:25 Some people see prayer as an intimate thing
00:27 to be shared with God alone.
00:30 Others enjoy corporate worship and the power they feel
00:33 of joining with others as they agree for God
00:35 to answer their prayers.
00:36 I believe God simply wants to hear from you.
00:39 So however, wherever, with whomever, just pray.
00:44 And when God answers prayer, be like
00:46 the one grateful leper in Luke 17.
00:49 Out of ten who Jesus healed,
00:51 only one came back to show gratitude.
00:54 Be that person, be that guy.
00:56 Verse 15 says, "And one of them, when he saw that
00:59 he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God,
01:03 and fell down on his face at His feet,
01:06 giving Him thanks."
01:07 We know how we respond to gratitude, how we respond
01:11 to gratitude and to a thankful heart.
01:14 And I can only imagine that it would go a long way with God.
01:18 In Psalm 34:1-4 it says, "I will bless the LORD
01:24 at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
01:28 My soul will make its boast in the LORD;
01:30 The humble will hear it and rejoice.
01:33 Oh, magnify the LORD with me,
01:35 and let us exalt His name together."
01:37 And so that's why we're here on this eleventh day.
01:40 Don't think it strange that we're having an
01:43 eleventh day to, Ten Day of Prayer.
01:45 Because the day after is when we give thanks,
01:51 we worship and glorify God for His faithfulness.
01:54 But we continue to pray and continue to seek His face.
01:57 In Psalm 103:1-5 it says, "Bless the LORD, O my soul;
02:02 And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
02:07 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:
02:11 Who forgives all your iniquities,
02:13 who heals all your diseases,
02:15 who redeems your life from destruction,
02:18 who crowns you with loving-kindness
02:20 and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth
02:24 with good things, so that your youth
02:27 is renewed like the eagle's."
02:30 So just enjoy for the next 25 minutes
02:35 as we just worship the Lord,
02:38 and we praise Him for His goodness.
02:39 We'll sing...
02:45 ...and we'll thank Him.
02:49 For He is a good God, and worthy to be praised.
02:54 He's given us multiple reasons.
03:00 Oh bless the Lord, oh my soul,
03:05 oh my soul;
03:09 worship His holy name.
03:15 Sing like never before, oh my soul;
03:24 I worship Your holy name.
03:30 Bless the Lord, oh my soul,
03:34 oh my soul;
03:37 worship His holy name.
03:43 Sing like never before, oh my soul;
03:51 I worship Your holy name.
04:00 Lord, we have seen Your mighty hand
04:02 as we have prayed over the past ten days.
04:06 You have shown Yourself faithful, as You always do.
04:13 Lord, You don't disappoint us.
04:18 I can be disappointed by other people who let me down,
04:24 but my trust and my hope is in You, Lord.
04:29 So all the needs and the burdens that I've
04:32 spoken to You in the past ten days of prayer,
04:40 God, I know that You hear them and I know that
04:42 You hold them in Your hand.
04:44 And I know You will answer.
04:47 And Lord, we anticipate now to see
04:51 the great things you will do...
04:54 ...in Your time, in Your way.
05:00 So we lift up Your name and we praise You.
05:08 You are a great God.
05:11 O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
05:18 consider all the worlds Thy hands have made;
05:25 I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder;
05:32 Thy power throughout the universe displayed.
05:39 Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee.
05:47 How great Thou art, how great Thou art.
05:54 Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee.
06:01 How great Thou art, how great Thou art.
06:10 And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
06:17 sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in.
06:24 That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
06:31 He bled and died to take away my sin.
06:38 Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee.
06:46 How great Thou art, how great Thou art.
06:52 Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee.
06:59 How great Thou art, how great Thou art.
07:10 When Christ shall come with shouts of acclamation
07:18 to take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
07:25 Then I shall bow in humble adoration,
07:34 and there proclaim, "My God, how great Thou art!"
07:42 Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee.
07:52 How great Thou art, how great Thou art.
08:04 Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee.
08:16 How great Thou art,
08:21 how great Thou art.
08:44 I sing praises to Your name, oh Lord,
08:51 praises to Your name, oh Lord.
08:58 For Your name is great and greatly to be praised.
09:09 I sing praises to Your name, oh Lord,
09:16 praises to Your name, oh Lord.
09:23 For Your name is great and greatly to be praised.
09:37 For Your name is so great
09:41 and greatly to be praised.
09:55 It's our privilege to praise the Lord.
10:04 Great things He has done.
10:06 And you know what else?
10:08 It's a great privilege knowing that He has done
10:10 such great things for us and heard our prayers,
10:13 and answered our prayers.
10:15 To show others the love of Jesus.
10:21 We have received so much love from our Savior,
10:25 let's not keep it for ourselves.
10:29 Let's share it with others.
10:33 Share His love around the world.
10:37 We encourage you and your church to ask God in prayer
10:41 how you can reach out to others
10:45 now that we've completed Ten Days of Prayer.
10:51 Matthew 25:35-36 says,
10:55 "For I was hungry, and you gave Me food;
10:59 I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink;
11:03 I was a stranger and you took Me in;
11:08 I was naked, and you clothed Me;
11:13 I was sick, and you visited Me;
11:16 I was in prison, and you came to Me."
11:24 In, The Ministry of Healing, we read,
11:28 "We must live a twofold life;
11:31 a life of thought and action,
11:35 of silent prayer and earnest work."
11:42 So I'm sure that you can think of some great ways
11:48 to show Christ to others.
11:54 But the great resource on tendaysofprayer.org
12:01 has just mentioned some very simple ways that you can
12:05 be the hands and feet of Christ.
12:10 Have you considered cooking a meal for someone
12:13 who has been sick?
12:17 Giving food to a homeless person.
12:21 Offer to stay with the sick or disabled person
12:25 so that their caretakers can run an errand.
12:31 Maybe you could donate your old eye glasses.
12:37 Offer to give a Bible study.
12:43 Visit people in nursing homes.
12:48 Give some food money to a student.
12:52 You know, those students are always hungry.
12:55 Send a card to a shut-in.
12:59 Invite someone to accept Jesus.
13:05 You could visit someone in the hospital to encourage them
13:07 or help them in some way.
13:11 Read the Bible aloud for someone who can't see or read.
13:19 You could take children from your church
13:22 to visit a home for elderly people.
13:29 You could plan and host a fun day for special needs kids
13:33 and their families.
13:36 Be creative.
13:38 Simply pray and ask God to show you ways to meet needs
13:42 in the area where you are.
13:47 Just be the hands and feet of Jesus.
13:51 One of the greatest opportunities of my life
13:54 last year was to be involved in a prison ministry that 3ABN has.
14:04 I remember, as a child I would go to prisons.
14:10 In fact, to Leavenworth Penitentiary.
14:12 A very big prison in Kansas.
14:18 I would go there with my parents and
14:20 we would sing and minister to those prisoners.
14:27 So it was great again to be reminded
14:35 that God loves people behind bars.
14:38 If you have that opportunity, give it all you've got.
14:44 Be there for those people.
14:47 They need you.
14:49 The hands and feet of Christ.
14:50 We have been blessed by prayer requests.
14:58 But also we've been blessed by answered prayer
15:03 that has come in the email.
15:10 Especially responses to the two hour program that we held
15:15 on the first Thursday night of this, Ten Days of Prayer.
15:23 God really moved in that time of prayer.
15:30 And your response indicated that you really need the Lord.
15:40 That's not a surprise.
15:42 It's nice to know that we can bear one another's burdens.
15:54 There were emails from shut-ins that talked about 3ABN being
16:00 the only family that they have, that you have.
16:06 Again, I want to remind you, we are here for you.
16:12 We want to pray with you, pray for you, believe with you,
16:19 because we bear each other's burdens.
16:24 And in that way, we fulfill the love of God
16:28 and the will of God.
16:35 And as we continue to just be in a heart of praise
16:39 and gratitude, we know that the needs continue.
16:53 But we know that Christ is our solid rock that we can
16:56 depend and trust.
16:58 And we talked a lot about that.
16:59 Trusting in Him and counting on Him.
17:03 Hoping in Him, even through our doubt.
17:09 So this is a wonderful hymn.
17:15 My hope is built on nothing less
17:19 than Jesus' blood and righteousness.
17:23 I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
17:27 but wholly lean on Jesus' name.
17:32 On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
17:36 all other ground is sinking sand.
17:40 All other ground is sinking sand.
17:47 When darkness veils His lovely face,
17:51 I rest on His unchanging grace.
17:55 In every high and stormy gale my anchor holds within the veil.
18:03 On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
18:07 all other ground is sinking sand.
18:12 All other ground is sinking sand.
18:18 His oath, His covenant, His blood
18:22 support me in the overwhelming flood.
18:26 When all around my soul gives way,
18:30 He then is all my hope and stay.
18:35 On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
18:39 all other ground is sinking sand.
18:43 All other ground is sinking sand.
19:00 When He shall come with trumpet sound,
19:04 oh may I then in Him be found.
19:08 Dressed in His righteousness alone,
19:12 faultless to stand before the throne.
19:17 On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
19:22 all other ground is sinking sand.
19:26 All other ground is sinking sand.
19:34 All other ground is sinking sand.
19:45 Father, we thank You that You have been our Rock,
19:50 You've been our Fortress.
19:52 You have been our strong tower.
19:56 You've been our Deliverer, our Refuge.
20:00 We thank You that we have hope in You.
20:03 We thank You that You have proven Yourself to be faithful.
20:09 And we choose to trust in You.
20:16 We will not be deterred by situations around us.
20:26 We will trust, we choose to trust.
20:29 We have faith that You will do what You said You will do.
20:36 For we know that You are our only hope.
20:44 You are our only source.
20:55 The only hope for the world is Jesus.
21:03 The only help for the earth is a touch from God.
21:11 Oh how we need Him; we must seek Him
21:19 with all our heart and all our soul.
21:23 There is no other help we know than Jesus Christ;
21:30 the only hope for the world.
21:34 Sing that with me.
21:36 The only hope for the world is Jesus.
21:43 The only help is to trust in God.
21:50 Oh how we need Him; we must seek Him
21:58 with all our heart and all our soul.
22:01 There is no other help we know than Jesus Christ;
22:08 the only hope for the world.
22:21 Just to remind you, if you need to be reminded,
22:25 if you need more strength, more faith, more hope, more trust,
22:31 Philippians 4:6 says, "Be anxious for nothing;
22:34 but in everything by prayer and supplication,
22:37 with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God."
22:42 Don't stop praying.
22:45 Colossians 4:2, "Devote yourselves to prayer,
22:51 keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving."
22:57 If you need something to be devoted to in this new year,
23:02 devote yourself to prayer.
23:06 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, "Rejoice always,
23:13 pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks;
23:19 for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
23:29 "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing,
23:31 in everything give thanks."
23:33 Ephesians 5:19-20 says, "...speaking to one another
23:40 in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
23:43 singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord,
23:47 always giving thanks for all things, in the name of our
23:51 Lord Jesus Christ, to God our Father."
24:12 Got any rivers you think are uncrossable?
24:20 Got any mountains you can't tunnel through?
24:28 God specializes in things thought impossible.
24:35 He can do just what no other god can do.
24:45 We serve the only true God.
24:47 And He can do all things.
24:50 So have faith, friend.
24:53 Do you have any rivers you think are uncrossable?
25:01 Do you have any mountains that you can't tunnel through?
25:09 God specializes in things thought impossible.
25:18 He can do just what no other can do.
25:34 So just have faith, continue to believe,
25:37 continue to trust...
25:44 ...and He will see you through.
25:54 Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
26:02 calling for you and for me.
26:10 See on the portals He's waiting and He's watching,
26:18 watching for you and for me.
26:27 Come home, come home,
26:34 ye who are weary come on home.
26:44 Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling.
26:52 Calling, O sinner, come home.
27:02 If you're praying for that lost loved one,
27:05 don't give up.
27:08 Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading,
27:15 pleading for you and for me?
27:21 Why should we linger and heed not His mercies,
27:29 mercy for you and for me?
27:35 Won't you come home, come home.
27:43 Ye who are weary come home, come home.
27:52 Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling.
27:59 Calling for sinners,
28:07 calling all sinners,
28:13 He's calling, O sinner, come home.
28:24 Father, thank You for this time we've had together
28:26 to spend over the past ten days to pray to You and to
28:30 seek Your face.
28:32 And I pray, God, that those watching will continue to
28:38 desire and hunger for a time, a regular time,
28:42 of prayer and worship;
28:45 to see Your face, to call on Your name.
28:50 Down at the cross, where my Savior died,
28:55 down where for cleansing from sin I cried;
29:00 there to my heart was the blood applied.
29:04 Glory to His name.
29:08 Glory to His name, glory to His name.
29:17 There to my heart was the blood applied.
29:21 Glory to His name.
29:27 I encourage you to go to...
29:31 And review the wonderful resources that they have there.
29:36 And go to...
29:41 ...to be a part of the prayer team,
29:45 the intercessors there.
29:47 It's been a blessing being with you.
29:48 Send me an email, let me know you watched.
29:51 God bless you.
