“I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause. Which doeth great things and unsearchable, marvelous things without number.” Job 5:8,9
This is my prayer of thanksgiving to God for sending me to CPIPES by Faith, 2018 in the Philippines! Thank you so much Gregg Cornelius for inviting me. Only in heaven will you see the results of all your toil, weariness, sleepless nights and earnest prayers. I also thank all the officers who also served the Lord with all their hearts, souls, minds and strength! (Mark 12:30).
I will never forget the beautiful Theme Song, the pianists, the vocal solos and extreme musical talents being used to glorify God alone! Because music is not music to me unless the people themselves are living God in their hearts, then it becomes heavenly music and can bring you right into the very throne-room of God!
I was also drawn so close to all the speakers and so happy to feel the unity and prayers that we had for each other. We had such an earnest desire for each young person hearing our voices to be drawn to the heart of God and give their lives in willing service to Him in full surrender.
The most overwhelming, intense joy that I experienced there was listening to the young people who shared their suffering, their trials, difficulties, doubts, fears, confusions, and indecisions with me and together through tears, and prayers I saw them making decisions for Jesus and overcoming by His grace their perplexities, dedicating their lives to Him for service! This is the joy that makes all heaven ring, and causes our hearts to sense His divine presence so that together with the 2 disciples on the road to Emmaus can say:
“Did not our heart burn within us, while He talked with us y the way, and while He opened to us the scriptures?” Luke 24:32
God’s actual palpable presence was upon us during united prayer in the early morning hours. It grew more powerful as the days went by until Sunday morning with Gregg Cornelius; we sought the Lord’s presence with praise, with repentance, with petitions, with supplications, with thankfulness, with commitment – giving God our treasured idols and everything that separates us from Him. Finally claiming our families, friends, cities, and country and all for Him! It was a taste of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit the disciples experienced in the upper room! Such tears and love filled our hearts that we did not notice 3 hours had already passed by!
I want to thank God first of all for this special time and next to all of you who blessed me so much!
