Day of Prayer #4: Pray that the Translation of the Bible would Stamp out the Prosperity Gospel

“And he said to all, If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.” Luke 9:23-24 

The thinking that has been termed the “Prosperity Gospel” teaches that success, wealth, and health belong to the Christian now and thus he can “name” and “claim” what he wants and God is more-or-less entitled to give it to him. Please see our blog posts  for a more thorough explanation.

Please pray that through our ministry the Lord would be pleased to stamp out this false doctrine and that the peoples of Cameroon would be willing to die to themselves, take up their crosses and follow Jesus.
