IS YOUR HEART RIGHT AS MY HEART….?
Bible Text: 2Kgs.10:10-17Series: FIRST FRUIT FASTING AND PRAYERS | INTRODUCTION: Let us remind ourselves that every word of God must surely come to pass no matter how long it takes (Ps.119:89, Jer.44:28-29, Zech.1:5-6). Through the mouth of Prophet Elijah, judgment was declared against the house of Ahab because his of wickedness and that of his wife. Jehu was ordained to execute this judgment according to God’s prophecy, so he set out for the assignment but realized that one man cannot do it (like the saying that a tree cannot make a forest). He needed to invite Jonadab who has the same mindset of abhorring evil in the land (2Kgs.10:15-16).
The Lord has given the Watchman through His servant (our GS) the vision of recovering, restoring the lost glory in His Church and showing sinners the way to salvation (Isa.49:5-6). The servant of God time without number has been telling the Watchmen and anyone who cares to hear that the work is not the work of one person. For this work to be executed, he informed us recently that there is need for like-mindedness (Amos 3:3).
At this second phase, we must all believe one thing, love righteousness, and hate iniquity in order to achieve this enormous task given as the ministry of the Man of God begins intensively this month.
HSCF 3, 13, 17 – Let’s minister to God for who He is and what He has done to us since the inception of the ministry.

42:1-4 – Let’s pray for the Diocesan Pastor and other Ministers that God’s purpose and plans concerning their lives will be fulfilled especially in this Diocese. Ask God to keep the wife and children taking away every distraction from His servant so that the work will be unhindered.

9:1-2 – God’s favour should come upon the Church so that the evil plans of the wicked will turn to their hurt.
Every evil agenda against the Church and the nation should be thwarted so that the gospel of Christ will prosper in this land.
