In Friday’s Power Hour Friday 7 February at 7 pm- Applying the Scripture found in The Holy Bible in prayer.   Our heritage is in Christ Jesus.  Its because of Christ who makes us right with God that allows us to come boldly to God and in believing receive what we ask in prayer.  In this program, we discover more through scripture and prayer the character of God- In this case,  we recognise God as a banner in our lives when difficult times prevail.   

The background to our main scripture, through Moses’s hands being kept raised that Joshua and his army prevailed and won against the Amelakites.  After the battle was won, 

Exodus 17:15  Moses built an altar and called it The Lord is my Banner.

Full reading of Exodus 17.

In the same way, if we have faith and believe,  God will be a banner in our own lives enabling us to win and over come the battles, difficulties which assail us.  We have to believe that God is indeed Jehovah Nissi – The Lord My  Banner.

During The program, we found out more of the person of God and used the following scriptures and prayed that believers would step up to the mark and be ready to give a testimony of God’s goodness in their lives.
