Theme – What has God Said?
Today – What has God said through past experiences (previous church efforts)
Scripture – Revelation 2-3
We can learn from history, in fact, we should learn from history. If you took the time to read Revelation 2 and 3 today, you can see that a history lesson was presented on the good, the bad and the ugly of seven churches. As we take the time to read this portion of Revelation, we can see what was accomplished (and not accomplished) for the Kingdom of God.
One of the objectives for the 100 Days of Prayer is for us to hear from the Lord regarding the future direction of Hope Fellowship. We know that God speaks through His Word, His Holy Spirit, His people and circumstances, but He can also teach us through the reflection of history.
What are some previous church efforts (either at Hope Fellowship or other churches you’ve worshipped at) that you learned some lessons about ministry? As you, and possibly your ministry team, reflected on these efforts, what did you learn? Write these lessons down because we should be reminded of them as Hope Fellowship looks to the future.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the spiritual instructions I have in Your Word and the warnings that help to keep me looking to Jesus. I pray that my devotion for You will not grow cold, but that in all things I will become more and more thrilled with the wonders of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Saviour. May my love for You start to reflect, in some small way, the love that You have shown to me. And thank You for the many privileges that are mine in Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
