Power of Praying God’s Word
TEXARKANA, TEX. – Bethel Seventh-day Adventist Church School had an exciting week celebrating during our Fall Week of Prayer. This year Bethel Adventist Church School has a lot of reasons to Praise the Lord!
Our week of prayer theme for the 2018-2019 school year was “Power of Praying God's Word” (Prayers vs. Promises). We had three dynamic speakers: Wilmore Green spoke on Monday and Wednesday; Daniel Supler from our sister church spoke on Tuesday and Thursday; and our very own Kenneth Edwards closed our Week of Prayer. Each day these dynamic speakers spoke to the students about the importance of prayer, the promises and how much each of us need to continually pray for the Holy Spirit to come into our hearts. The students experienced the prayers of Daniel in the lion's den, the three Hebrew boys and the feeding of the 5,000.
After the message each day, the students gathered in prayer groups of three or four and petitioned the Lord to dwell in their hearts and to bless their family members. Each child received “Prayers and Promises for Praying the Word” cards to remember the prayers and promises. During the parent-teacher conferences the following week, parents received “Prayers and Promises for Your Children” cards.
The most precious moment was witnessing two kindergarten students praying for the power of the Holy Spirit; it was breathtaking. I thank the Lord for this wonderful experience!
