Today, God is calling all His Children to enter into His class room of higher learning and “STUDY” His Word of Truth. How are you going to know God if you are not daily STUDYING His Word? When we study, we are released from the bondage of lack and into the freedom of knowledge and prosperity where we can freely lift Him up in Prayer, Praise and Worship.
LIFT UP HOLY HANDS AND PRAISE THE LORD:
LET US PRAY:
Eternal God, our Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son Jesus into my life
and the lives of all those who have open their hearts and minds to receive Him as their Lord and Savior. Today Father, a few of your believing children have gather together in your name to lift you up in prayer, praise and worship. Father, give us a praying spirit that we may know how to pray and what to pray for. We are leaning and depending on you Heavenly Father to bring us into the truth of your Word through our studying of your Word and you opening our minds that we may receive the truth and be persuaded by our faith in the knowledge of what thus says the Lord. We seek these blessings over the minds of all those who are willing to study and show themselves approved before you this day, in Jesus name we pray, Amen!
TIME FOR THE WORD: For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

TIME FOR ALTER CALL
So that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-11 ESV)
HOW TO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE
What must I do to be saved? This question was first asked by a jailer at Ephesus, who witnessed an earthquake that freed Paul and Silas. Paul and Silas were the Church’s first official evangelists, who had been falsely arrested and beaten and left in his charge. The earthquake came as the climax to a midnight prison cell prayer and praise meeting and it spurred the jailer to consider the condition of his soul. What must I do to be saved, you asked? If you truly want to be saved, listen to what the Lord says you must do, “you should first go to God in prayer. When praying to Him you should tell Him you are sorry for the sinful things that you have done against Him and how you want to do the right thing from now on (1 John 1:9, Acts 20:21). Next you should ask Him to forgive your sins through His death payment on the cross (Colossians 2:10-14). Last, make a commitment to God that you will wholly follow His commandments and believe on Him and His Word, with the help of His Holy Spirit (John 14:15). Congratulations, you are SAVED (John 8:32)! You have become a new person, and you will be able to live a life that is pleasing to God (2 Corinthians 5:14-17 ). Now, God will come into your heart and live with you (Revelation 3:20). This is so you can be close to Him, receive His power, and understand His Word (1 John 3:16, Acts1:8, John14:26).
Father we thank you for allowing us to come into your presence and worship you, strengthen us as we GO out to SERVE; Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
