Prayer Camp 2015

The need for regular prayer before the desperate need arises drawing us to prayer was emphasised at the beginning of the new term of the Executive Committee. It started with a special day of prayer with the Regional Presbyters on 26th November 2014 and where the theme “Together let us build the altar of the Lord” was adopted. This was the precursor to the Pastors’ Prayer Camp that was held at Green Hills Retreat Center, Kotagala from the 20th to 22nd January 2015, which was spearheaded by the Nuwara Eliya church lead by Rev. Yoganathan.

Michael Dissanayeke, Rev. Dishan Wickramaratne and Rev. Yoganathan delivered divinely inspired messages and revelations that stirred up the hearts of those who attended. Prophetic messages came through challenging the pastors to venture out during this time that God would demonstrate His faithfulness to those who believe by opening doors that were previously closed. He will rekindle the lamps of His servants who will become as shining stars.
