Prayer Mountain

On December 6, 1990, I went to a Prayer Mountain (A Prayer Retreat Facility literally on top of the Mountain) to get away from the hussle and bussle of the citylife ...and to seek God with stillness and quietness around me...

I still remember how I entered into what they call a "Prayer Cell". A prayer cell is a small room which construction is similar to a maximum security prison cell.. a tiny little room, maybe 7 feet deep and 4 feet wide (maybe smaller). The only difference is that in this cell I have the option to leave the door closed or open. The door has a window on top where you can see the sky as you look up. When I open the door, I can see the whole city down below, and the pasteur in between.

Literally and figuratively, it was a mountaintop experience....

Below is the verse the Lord led me to as I seek in face on Prayer Cell No. 6:

The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him
It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord
It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young.
Let him sit alone in silence, for the Lord has laid it on him.
Let him bury his face in the dust - there may yet be hope.
Let him offer his cheek to the one who would strike him, and let him be filled with disgrace.
For men are not cast off by the Lord forever;
Though He brings grief, He will show compassion.
So great is his unfailing love.
For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to the children of men...

- Lamentation 3:25-33
