Covenant Hour Of Prayer Teaching – 19/4/18 By Bishop David Oyedepo
Topic : You Cannot Have A Heart For God And Not Have Time For Him
∆ Everyone that truly has a heart for God will have time for Him. Matt.6:21
∆ Our lack of time for God is not because we are busy, but because we don’t have heart for Him.
∆ Daniel, a man that has a heart for God, displayed it by praying three times daily. He fasted for 21 days just to get revelation from God. Dan.6:10, Dan.10:1-3
Nuggets For Today:
