INTRODUCTION
You are welcome to annual IMPACT WEEK OF PRAYER. This week is also for preparation towards World Church Impact Day coming up on April 16, 2022. The rationale for this is that you need to receive the blessings in this material first before sharing with others because you cannot give what you do not have. The taste of the pudding is in the eating. All hands should be on deck. All departments of the church are to use this week for in-reach and out-reach. Speakers are to be carefully and specially selected. Let us revive our hope in Christ and His second coming once again.

PREFACE
The truth about the present world is that it will not remain forever. However, the Bible presents hope for all the Universe including Earth. God has loved us with unfailing love, that He gave His only son to die on the cross to fulfill the plan of Salvation. In return, God has given us the freedom to choose to love Him.
Just as the Three Angels bearing the end-time message, we are enjoined to become human messengers, preaching to the world. We are to bear the everlasting Gospel: Fear God, bear many fruits, worship and glorify God who made the heavens and the earth.
While the hour of God's judgment is upon us, it is going to be a reality. But to be free from the judgment of God, we are to remain faithful to God, worship God the Creator who made the heavens and earth and not the creation, who has changed times and laws.
