Imagine millions of Seventh-day Adventists all around the world praying for 100 days for the same thing! Praying for the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to be fully experienced by our church members during the General Conference session, July 2-11, 2015 in San Antonio, Texas.
Imagine what our Lord can do to bring the promised breakthroughs for this last day movement so Jesus can come! However, if we want Him to do the work, we are responsible for our part to prepare the way.
After the 1901 General Conference session, Ellen White had a vision revealing “What Might Have Been.” She witnessed those in the meetings responding to the Holy Spirit to be reconciled through humility, confession of sins, and removal of barriers between each other.
This was followed by earnest prayer, songs of praise and the evident presence of the Holy Spirit which created the miracle of unity. All came together accepting the warnings and promises to the Laodicean church. The work of deep spiritual renewal and changed lives so desperately needed was accomplished by our God (see Testimonies, Vol. 8, pp. 104-106).
When she woke from the vision, Mrs. White realized this breakthrough had not happened as God intended. Hardhearted participants prevented the unity God so desired. Deeply disappointed, she understood that the Lord could have come back in the lifetime of those members. But His people could not or would not surrender their thoughts and opinions to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
A 100 Days of Prayer is planned preceding the Session beginning March 25 thru July 11, 2015. Resources can be found at www.100daysofprayer.org. A 16-minute video reenactment of the vision will also be available prior to the beginning of the 100 Days of Prayer so you can show it to your members.
Jesus invites us to come together, united in His will, praying for His power to break through, and usher in His second coming. We all realize there are major deci - sions to be made and different opinions to be heard. We are praying that these vital meetings will be a time when God breaks through in the hearts of individuals and, as in the book of Acts, ignites the passion for saving His children.
Will you please invite your church members to join in the 100 Days of Prayer seeking God’s will for the General Conference session? Visit our website at www.100daysofprayer.org for more information. Let’s pray that we are the genera - tion which ushers in Jesus’ second coming.
Imagine being part of the last-day generation, to have the privilege of reflecting Jesus’ character to the world, to live the proof that Jesus is real. “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35, NKJV).
