It’s time once again for the annual Bethel Fellowship International Ministers Conference at Camp Berachah. Each year we gather to enjoy a time of fellowship and feasting on the Word of God.
“Awake the Dawn,” is a very timely theme this year, coming after last year’s conference on end time events. This year our keynote speaker, Ernest Gentile, recognized prophet, pastor and teacher of Christian Community Church in San Jose, CA, will challenge us to commit ourselves to more earnest prayer.
As the leader of BFI, I feel an urgency in my spirit to challenge God’s people to realize the importance of spending more time in prayer. We all are faced with problems, pressures, and concerns. It is for that reason it is important to make time and spend it at the feet of the Lord in prayer. Even though we all have busy lives and are under pressures and cares of the church, God is still saying, “Come out from all of that.” . . . and spend time with Him building a more intimate relationship.
We must call the church together to corporate prayer, as well as create more personal time for communing with God. As a result, the powerful weapons of praise and worship will be sharpened and literally pierce the darkness in this end of the age. There has never been a time of greater urgency to become equipped with prayer. The world, the church, the ripened harvest and even we ourselves are in great, great need of God’s intervention.
“Through God we shall do valiantly: for He it is that shall tread down our enemies.” Psalm 108:13. Our victory comes not from being the largest church, having the greatest programs, or the biggest offerings, but from awakening the dawn. David said that he himself awakend the dawn by rising early to seek the Lord, to travail and prevail in prayer. Let us be inspired to do the same!
