Prayer and Fasting Day

Around 210 women attended for this, our fifth Women for the Kingdom Conference to be held at Mount Zion Pentecostal Church in Bangalore. The day had been advertised as a fasting and prayer day, so the English women fasted along with the Indian women. There were four English women on the Together for God team this year - Eileen Roylance, Terrie Thomas and Tina Pawsey from Watton Pentecostal Church in Norfolk, and Lydia Field from Aveley Pentecostal Church in Essex. This was Lydia's first visit to India.

The Indian women had already begun to pray and worship before we arrived and then Eileen began by giving a testimony about how she has experienced the active presence of God in her life and quoted from Psalm 46:1 that God is our shelter and strength, always ready to help us in our times of trouble.

The conference

Terrie then preached about a woman who is not named, from Matthew 15:21-28, and how she showed great love, faith and persistence when she came to Jesus. Terrie reminded us that we need to be like that woman and simply come to Jesus.

Following Terrie's message, Tina asked all the women to stand and respond to that message, and led us in prayer, holding out our hands to God, giving him the people we're concerned about, the situations and the problems that we face.

It was then Lydia's turn to preach and she spoke a message about who we are in Christ and that we are living stones, hand-chosen and placed by God into his temple. Lydia challenged us about being willing to have sharp edges knocked off us as God moulds us into the people he wants us to be.

Tina continued with a challenge that we need to know, as living stones, that we are in the right place, the place God where wants us to be. She also spoke about the importance of vision and reaching beyond where we are now to take hold of God's promises, his healing and his miracles. She then led the women in prayer as we reached out to God to know our place and to grow in our ministry, for enlarged vision, and for new visions to be birthed.

Joyce Lynn concluded the day with a message about how we can be wise women for God and we were aware that the Holy Spirit had dovetailed all the messages together.

The English women were then privileged to pray for and anoint their Indian sisters with oil - this is always a precious and moving time. A call for salvation was made and three women (there may have been more) responded and asked Jesus into their lives to be Lord and Saviour.

A meal was then provided and gratefully received at the end of the day at around 4.00 pm.
