1. Financial needs - we tend to skip church services, especially during Sundays because we reason out that we will receive double pay or overtime pay for our work. Husbands usually go abroad leaving their family away from them. If we must choose between money and relationship, choose relationship. We MUST not do this. We need to strengthen more our tithes and offering to the LORD

4:19 And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
2. Healing - we go to quack doctors, or use our money to be cured by different doctors. Our Healer is JESUS, first and foremost, we come to JESUS daily for our healing everyday.
