On the first weekend in November, 2020, a special prayer seminar was held at Schofields Church and livestreamed for participants further afield.
Friday evening’s meeting was entitled “Prayer in Days of Conflict,” where we learned lessons from Israel’s experience as recorded in 2 Chronicles 20:20.
Sabbath morning, “Catching the Vision” we were shown how prayer has played a key role in the history of the church, and what that means for us today.
The Sabbath afternoon session was occupied with musical items, testimonies, prayer sessions, and two short sermonettes: in “Effective Communion,” we learned the importance of personal devotion and praise; in “Intercessory Prayer,” we learned more about praying for one another.

While I greatly appreciated the wonderful messages presented, I was especially impressed by the time spent in prayer. We gathered in prayer groups and spent time both in individual prayer and praying together as a group. Through the use of Zoom, we were able to pray together with people that were not able to attend.
Hearing the messages and praying together really gave me an understanding of the duty that we have as individuals to pray and how prayer is a necessity for the church to survive and thrive. As we drew closer together through prayer, I saw that, in order to face the end times, we need to pray like we have never prayed before. The seminar has continued to touch my heart today, and it is my hope that through prayer we can come together in unity and be ready for Christ’s return.
God bless, Cameron
