Joy Unspeakable Joy

February 5, 2016


Second Baptist Church Prayer Call (Excerpt) – “Joy Unspeakable Joy” – Evangelist and First Lady Patricia Houston of Mt. Olive Tabernacle of Praise COGIC delivered a message regarding the experience of true joy from a Christian’s perspective. 1 Peter 1:6-9 reminds us, “In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.”

Patricia Houston has been married for 29 year to Pastor Roderick Houston, pastor of the Mt. Olive Tabernacle of Praise COGIC, Assistant Superintendent of the Wichita District and the State Representative of the 89th District in Wichita. She is the mother of three sons and the grandmother to four children.
