  • Call to Pray for 100 Days

    Announced by North NZ Coordinator on Mar 24 2015

    Imagine millions of Seventh-day Adventists around the world praying for 100 days for the same thing! From March 25 through July 11, 2015, you are encouraged to pray with millions of others for the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to be fully experienced by our church members during the General Conference Session, July 2-11, 2015 in San Antonio, Texas.

    “We realize that major decisions need to be made at General Conference Session and different opinions need to be heard,” says Jerry Page, General Conference Ministerial Association Secretary. “We are praying that these vital meetings will be a time when God breaks through in the hearts of individuals and, as in the Book of Acts, ignites a passion for sharing the Good News with everyone in the world.” You are invited to register at www.100DaysofPrayer.org, and receive a daily blog and specific items to pray for each day.

    What Might Have Been
    After the 1901 General Conference Session, Ellen White had a vision in which she witnessed those in the meetings responding to the Holy Spirit to be reconciled through humility, confession of sins and removal of barriers between each other. This was followed by earnest prayer, songs of praise, and the evident presence of the Holy Spirit. (See Testimonies, Vol. 8, pp. 104-106.)

    When she woke from the vision, Mrs. White realized this breakthrough had not happened as God intended. Hardhearted participants prevented the unity God so desired. Deeply disappointed, she understood that the Lord could have come in their lifetime! But His people did not surrender their thoughts and opinions to the leading of the Holy Spirit. You can see a 28-minute video reenactment of the vision at www.100DaysofPrayer.org.

    It Still Can Be!
    “What might have been” for 1901, still can be for 2015! Jesus invites us to unite together, and pray for His power to break through the hearts of individuals and usher in His Second Coming. Will you invite your family, friends, and church members to join in 100 Days of Prayer, seeking God’s will for the General Conference Session?

    29th National Christian Family Conference: Effective Parents Positive Teens

    Raising Emotionally Healthy Teenagers

    When: 20-21 July 2015 (Applications Close July 13, 2015)

    Venue: Fox Valley Community Centre, 183a Fox Valley Road, Wahroonga, NSW (on the grounds of the Sydney Adventist Hospital)

    Adolescence can be an exciting but challenging time for teens and their parents/care-givers! It demands new ways of relating to changing rules and divergent opinions. It can often be a time of turmoil, confusion and broken friendships. The counselling room can also be a challenging place for the adolescent and the therapist.

    The 29th National Christian Family Conference will focus on key issues facing teens and those who care for them. Australian specialists will present the latest research in the fields of parenting, adolescent mental health, and the digital age and cyberspace-safety, as well as sharing important strategies that might assist teens and their carers in negotiating these potentially difficult years.
