Bible School students learned an amazing truth that as they minister to the Father, they not only have opportunity for full-time ministry, but also have now put themselves in position to minister to others.  "First Steps in Ministry's" class 3 is titled, "Prayer."   One of the main emphasis of this class teaches students that their main purpose of prayer is to minister to the Father!  Click below to hear how this class impacted the lives of our students.

One student wrote:  "The main step that I have to take to ensure there is enough time for ministry is for me to have a priority change. After listening to this class I realized that I'm in full time ministry to people and part time ministry to the father. It seems like I'm always working or helping out with problems that they are having with the cars or houses and when I do get a break then I end up doing what my flesh wants to do (set on the sofa and watch tv). So I may have to start saying no to people and to my self to ensure there is time for ministry.

For my ministry to be effective it needs to be a conversation with the father, I need to tell Him things and then listen for His response. I'm really good at waiting for Him to tell me something, the problem is if I don't ask Him something He may not tell me anything. Another thing that will make my ministry effective is being real with the Father, If I don't talk to Him with an honest heart then It will not minister to Him."

 Another student shared: "Psalms 5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

I love to pray to the Lord in the morning, that's where I get most of my privacy.  When it comes to full-time ministry I must remember that the Lord is number one. If I can't minister to the Father then I can't minister to others.

I remember when I didn't know how to talk to God. I especially did not like when people would ask me to pray. I can say that I am improving in that area. Praise God! I know now it was because of my lack of relationship with God that made it difficult to pray. Without that relationship my ministry will be nothing. I can not use the excuse of not having enough time. I will always have time to pray to the Father. I'll just have to start by taking away fleshly desires.

I should always be myself when praying to the Lord. My heart should speak to him. It doesn't matter who's around, I shouldn't be ashamed as to how I pray.  I love this, "Effective communication is a key interpersonal skill and learning how we can improve our communication has many benefits. Communication is a two way process, so improving communication involves both how we send and receive messages."

I need to be able to communicate to God the right way and not be fake. I also need to take the time to hear him and know his instructions.  The right time, the right words, and hearing God with open ears will make my ministry worth it. All for the one that has called me into ministry.
