Operation Global Rain 2011
For the third year, the Prayer Ministries Team will direct us once again in the important ten days of concentrated prayer:  Week of Prayer: 2011 Operation Global Rain.  We want to be part of that group of people who are taking the world by LOVE, not force.  We will gather together to lay aside our differences as did the early Christians 2,000 years ago, and unite in earnest, heartfelt confession and pleading for power to go out and give a message of life to a dying world.

Pray for those in your circle, and those the Lord lays on your heart.  Jesus is not willing that any should perish!  Watch for updates for this important ten days scheduled worldwide for August 12-19, 2011 - and at 6:00 PM at the Silverado Orchards Retirement Home on Pope Street.  Everyone is invited to join this important time of prayer, supplication and devotional thought.  Join us for all, or part of the session.

God’s Desire

Then if you being evil know to give good gifts to your children, how much more the Father out of Heaven will give the Holy Spirit to those asking Him.
-Luke 11:13

The descent of the Holy Spirit upon the church is looked forward to as in the future; but it is the privilege of the church to have it now. Seek for it, pray for it, believe for it. We must have it, and Heaven is waiting to bestow it.--Review and Herald, March 19, 1895.

But you will receive power, the Holy Spirit coming upon you, and you will be witnesses of Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
-Acts 1:8 OGR 6:15 Prayer Chain

A chain of earnest, praying believers should encircle the pray for the Holy Spirit. Review and Herald, January 3, 1907.


And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. Revelation 5:8. “When the Third Angel's Message shall go forth with a loud voice, the whole earth shall be lightened with His glory, the Holy Spirit is poured out upon His people. The revenue of glory has been accumulating for this closing work of the Third Angel's Message.  The prayers that have been ascending for the fulfillment of the promise, the descent of the Holy Spirit, not one has been lost. Each prayer has been accumulating, ready to overflow and pour forth a healing flood of heavenly influence and accumulated light all over the world.” Letter 96a 1899, p. 2.


I really do want Jesus to return and I realize that in order for this to happen, an unlimited measure of the Holy Spirit must be poured out in my life and on my church. By God’s grace, I am willing to make my prayer objective with my Savior, to pray at approximately 6:15 a.m. every morning or another 15 minutes past any hour until Jesus returns again for an increasing measure of the Holy Spirit to fall on:

(1) myself; (2) my local church family; (3) my pastor; (4) my church leaders; and, (4) through us, on the whole world, and to help swell the loud cry.
