About 13yrs ago, a few young guys met together for a 3 days prayer meeting code named Antioch Experience. It was in that meeting that I met Gbenga Sesan, Bayo Olotu and a few other young men. It was 3 days of sharing God’s word, praying and recieving direction from God for our futures on that campus OAU and life in general.  It was an exciting meeting, in that it left us all better men, providing an anchor of some sort for our lives. Our text then was from ACTS 13 – The Antioch Experience! A few days ago, in my daily bible study throught he book of ACTS, I stumbled again on this centrepeice – Antioch! I had for a while been contemplating a prayer meeting with friends, and as soon as I read the chapter again, it became clear what the prayer meeting will be code named.

Date: December 30, 2009

Time: 8am -4pm (Prompt)

Venue: Headstone Christian Center: The Leadership Center 30a coker rd ilupeju

(No gate crashing – Please confirm attendance – Venue can change based on Numbers)

What exactly happened at Antioch, and what can we expect to happen at this prayer meeting.

1. The meeting was blessed with a number of prophet-preachers and teachers.

On the 30th of December we can expect to have a variety of God’s children, some in the market place, some in the Lord’s vineyard. It will be a day of the expression of many dimensions of God’s multidimensional manifold wisdom. We’ll be praying and sharing from God’s mind.

2. They Worshiped God.

We’ll spend quality time, praising and worshiping God as well. We will not sing to ourselves, we will sing to God, we’ll offer him ourselves as living sacrifices, which is our reasonable act of worship. By God’s grace, it won’t be a measure of sonorosity of voice, but the heart of surrender.

3. They Fasted and waited for Guidance

Everybody is urged to come with a personal jotter and come fasting. We will wait upon God and expect to recieve His guidance. The expectations of the righteous shall not be cut off. God will guide us into 2010.

4. The Holy Spirit Spoke

Just as they didn’t engage in the exercise of prayer alone but were graced with God’s voice and words, the same will be our portion. We will worship, pray, fast and recieve guidance from the Holy Spirit.

5. Men were commissioned

Just as Paul and Barnabas were launched into their ministry, people will recieve direction from God that will launch them into God’s purpose for their lives.

6. There was an intensity and obedience

Those who prayed were serious, and the meeting created an intense circle, and people were willing to follow God’s bidding, wherever or whatever he asked to do was not questioned. They went out and pursued their assignments.

7. Antioch became a reference point in their lives

Paul and Barnabas went far and wide and always returned to Antioch. It was in Antioch that the disciples were first called Christians. Antioch was where the course of the Gospel changed, from strictly Jews to Greeks and Non-Jews. As Antioch provided a pivotal point for the life of Paul, Barnabas and those that gathered there, we trust that we will have a reference point from our meeting place on the 3oth.

All who would come for these date are requested to spend quality time before this date seeking God’s face and fasting if they can. The venue can sit 50, so we can accomodate close to that. Reservations can be made individually and as couples. All participants can also come with some refreshment for 2-5 as we’ll all break our fast with a small love feast. Also expect a session on faith for creating wealth with reference to the Science of Getting Rich.
