An invitation from Walnut Park Baptist Church, Muscatine:
We invite you to spend Saturday, January 29, 2022 with us focused in prayer. Please take the opportunity to invite as many other men as you can to come pray with you that day. Also, we encourage you to bring with you your sons and other young men for this valuable investment in prayer. Dr. Les Ollila will speak in the morning and afternoon sessions. Dr. Ollila has invested his life mentoring men as followers of Christ. His Scriptural challenges will help equip you to the ministry of prayer. Recently, Les wrote this about prayer:
“When approaching the subject of prayer, this writer still feels like a pre-med student attempting to lecture on the particulars of brain surgery! Regardless, our heart is burdened to pour out in desperation the need for prayer that is effectual and fervent, not only in my own daily life but also in the body of the church.“It was our privilege as a family to travel with a revival-focused ministry under Del Fehsenfeld and the Life Action Revival Team. Still fresh in my mind are the all-night prayer meetings where grown men and women cried out to God as the conviction of sin led to confession and change in personal lives and the churches. Meetings that were scheduled to go for ten days would sometimes extend to two or more weeks. One meeting in memory lasted thirty one days with no man-made manipulation, but with a lot of honesty…which brought freedom to many who had been bound in bitterness, pride, and many other sins which choke any progress toward sanctification. It is easy to become settled, satisfied, and smug in our Christian life and to be like the church at Ephesus, busy, but left their first love.“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed; the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. (James 5:16-18)”
