Prayer & Fasting Meditation: Grace for the Journey

Day 19

Pray for divine protection and journey mercies for everyone who will be travelling to attend the 2019 World Agents of Change Conference and the Christian Teachers Summit. Pray that God will bring everyone to the conference safely.

Meditation

 ‘On the twelfth day of the first month we set out from the Ahava Canal to go to Jerusalem. The hand of our God was on us, and he protected us from enemies and bandits along the way. So we arrived in Jerusalem, where we rested three days.’ – Ezra 8:31-32

We all, like the Psalmist should be glad when asked to go into the house of the Lord.

However, travel by whatever means can be a risky endeavor. Ask the children of Israel, They left Egypt with great Joy but soon encounterd the red sea, Then Egypt’s army came after them next. They had to journey through enemy territories, but they eventually got to the Promised Land because God was with them.

Ezra also testified that they arrived in Jerusalem thanks to the same reason we meditated on yesterday: the hand of God was on them. That is our prayer. As brethren travel from various places to the WAOCC Abuja 2019, pray that the hand of God would be on everyone.

Ezra said they were protected from enemies and bandits along the way by God himself. Let us pray that God Himself will protect all our participants as they travel. We are not ignorant of the devices of the enemy, but with God’s presence and His hand upon us, safety is assured.

Moses knew this when he prayed: “if your presence would not go with us, then don’t take us up from this place.” Cry to God for his presence in all our travels to and from this year’s conference.

The presence and the hand of God on anyone always ends with a testimony. Ezra said “so we arrived in Jerusalem, where we rested three days.” That too should be your cry for this conference.

Pray that you will not travel for the sake of travelling. Pray that as God brings you to Abuja safely, He would grant you permanent rest from all your troubles and struggles. Let the journey to this year’s conference mark a turning point in your life and leave you with a testimony of rest.

Don’t let up. Cry out! Cry that you will enter into your own rest. All our journeys should end with a rest. Pray that your travels for this conference will end with you entering not just a three-day rest like Ezra, but an everlasting rest, now and always.

Praise God! the  2019 World Agents of Change Conference is 3 days away!
