And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 1 Corinthians 2:4
The failure of the world to be saved is the failure of the Church to preach. The failure of the Church in preaching is her failing to preach with power and the failure to preach with power is in her failure to engage in Repentance, Prayers and the Spirit of holiness. We must carry the power of God if we must see a revival of the lost world.
You must understand that people who are not saved are bound by Satan and it takes more than mere talk to get people out of darkness into light. The scripture states that “when a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. (Luke 11:21). This strong man here refers to the devil. He controls the sinners, they are blinded by Him, therefore to lose them, you overcome him, and one place that is done is in the place of prayers. We must understand how to be positioned for the release of God’s power to save when we pray.
The prayer ministry of the church is engaging the mystery of repentance and the ministry of the Holy Spirit in prayers that we may preach with power. When we preach with power, then the world will be saved. Praise God!

The churches in Slovenia are lacking in spiritual vitality. They are rapidly declining into irrelevance while agnosticism, New Age and different forms of Eastern religious beliefs are increasing, generally, there is spiritual apathy, even among those who notionally believe in God.
Y: We are praying for spiritual awakening in the mainline churches to draw many nominal Christians into a deeper walk with Christ.
Dear Father, help me to release power in prayers and preach with power that the world might be saved in Jesus’ name, Amen.
