Country told to pray with humility
God responds to the prayers of a righteous and a humble man.
That was one of the points highlighted by the Superintendent of the Assemblies of God in Samoa, Pastor Joe Amosa, at Faleata on Friday night.
He was speaking during the final evening of the one-week Prayer conference, hosted by Fa’amatala Le Upu Ministries.
Among the audience was Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi and other Members of Parliament.
One of the Bible verses quoted by Pastor Amosa reads: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and heal their land.”
Pastor Amosa reminded that “blessed are those who trust in the Lord and make him their hope and confidence.”
“Samoa, God seeks those with humble hearts,” Pastor Amosa said. “Call on Him when you’re in doubt, He’s there…He’s with us all…don’t try to control things that only God can control and don’t you ever rely on your own strength…we need to seek him in prayers and faith.
“There’s nothing wrong when we call on Jesus saying, I don’t know what to do now, help me! You’re the only One that can show me the right path to go. Remember to humble yourself before the Lord.”
Prime Minister Tuilaepa acknowledged the Faamatala le Upu Ministries and ‘One in Christ’ for the conference. The conference was opened last Sunday by the Associate Minister of Environment, Faumuina Tiatia Liuga.
