God’s hand was at work to save Jacob and his family. Joseph was equipped by God from childhood with the power of dream interpretation. While under the service of Potiphar he was imprisoned and in prison, he exhibited this rare talent by interpreting dreams for his fellow prisoners, among whom were the chief butler and the chief baker.
Pharaoh had two dreams; the first was the dream of seven sleek and fat cows and seven gaunt and thin cows that came out from the Nile. The gaunt and, thin ate up the sleek and fat cows. The second was the dream of seven ears of grains, plump and good growing on one stalk and after them sprouted seven ears thin and blighted by the wind. The thin ears swallowed the seven plump and full ears. The dreams gave Pharaoh great concern, and none of his magicians was able to interprete them. The chief butler for whom Joseph successfully interpreted his dream, brought to the knowledge of Pharaoh Joseph’s power of dream interpretation.
Joseph was called out of the prison as directed by Pharaoh, and he was able to tell Pharaoh that the dreams represented divine revelation concerning the approaching seven years of plentiful agricultural harvest to be followed by seven years of intensive famine. Joseph went further to suggest that a wise person be appointed by Pharaoh to oversee the storage of food during the seven years of plenty, against the years of famine. Joseph was appointed not only the overseer of the storage of food, but the governor of Egypt and the second in command to Pharaoh. Joseph was renamed Zaphenath-Paneah by Pharaoh. Joseph was able to discharge the function effectively, and thus stored food in abundance during the season of plenty. The food was sold to the Egyptians and the entire world during the famine.

After the death of Moses God called Joshua to lead the lsraelites to cross the Jordan in order to take possession of the Promised Land. God said to him, “Moses, my servant is dead, now therefore rise, go over this Jordan, you and all the people, into the land which I am giving to them”. God assured Joshua that He would be with him as He had been with Moses. But he must be strong and courageous and walk according to the law which Moses had commanded. He should not turn from the law either to the right hand or to the left, so that he might have good success wherever he went. The book of the law should not depart from his mouth. He should meditate upon it day and night so that He might be careful in acting according to all that is written in the law. It was only through such faithful obedience to the law that he would be prosperous and therefore have good success. He had only to be strong and courageous. He should not be frightened or dismayed for the Lord His God is with him wherever he would go.

The early church included Jews born and bred in Palestine. It also included those Jews born and bred in other nations such as Greece. Possibly there were non-Jewish members too.
The Apostles engaged in evangelism and the number of believers increased considerably. They lived a communal life involving the distribution of needed items among the members.
At a point, the Greek members of the church complained that those who served the tables were discriminating against their widows in the distribution of the items.
When this matter got into the ears of the Apostles, they called the members together and told them it was not proper that they leave the work of preaching the gospel to serve tables. So the people should select from among themselves seven people to serve the tables. The people to be chosen must be men of repute, and be full of the spirit and wisdom.
In the end, seven men of repute were chosen. They included Stephen, Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas and Nicolaus. The seven were presented to the Apostles who prayed and laid their hands on them.
The main duty of the seven deacons were to serve tables to stop discrimnaton.

According to (1 Peter 2: 13-17) Peter stated necessary requirements a citizen must have to be a responsible citizen.
Firstly, a good Christian citizen is one who abides by the law of the land as he obeys the law of God. He contributes his quota towards the development of the society.
A good Christian citizenship is the art of having right attitude towards duties and obligations towards the nation and the civil authority.
Peter urges Christians to submit themselves for God’s sake to those in authority. This means that Christians are to be loyal, obedient, respectful and should respect those in authority e.g. kings, governors, judges and other lawful authorities.
Peter said a good Christian citizen is the one who respects the authorities and the rulers who have been appointed by God to punish evil doers and praise those who do the right thing.
Peter said Christians are free from bondage of Sin and not from obedience
to God’s law. Therefore, a good citizen should live as a free person without using his freedom as a protest for evil, but should live as a servant of God.
Above all, should honour all men, love the brotherhood of Christians and other citizens, fear God and honour the rulers and the kings.
(i) A good citizen should maintain self discipline,good citizenship is an important attribute of a good Christian.
(ii)A good citizen should pay tax,rate,levy ,fine etc promptly.
(iii)A good christian must be obedient to the power that exist and avoid making derogatory statement to constituted authority
(i)Pray to the Heavenly Father; This condition to prayer might seem obvious, but it’s important. We don’t pray to false gods, to ourselves, to angels, to Buddha, or to the Virgin Mary. We pray to the God of the Bible, who revealed Himself in Jesus Christ and whose Spirit indwells us. Coming to Him as our “Father” implies that we are first His children—made so by faith in Christ
(ii) Pray for good things; We don’t always understand or recognize what is good, but God knows, and He is eager to give His children what is best for them. Paul prayed three times to be healed of an affliction, and each time God said, “No.” Why would a loving God refuse to heal Paul? Because God had something better for him, namely, a life lived by grace. Paul stopped praying for healing and began to rejoice in his weakness
(iii) Pray for needful things; Placing a priority on God’s kingdom is one of the conditions to prayer. The promise is that God will supply all our needs, not all our wants. There is a difference.
(iv) Pray from a righteous heart; The Bible speaks of having a clean conscience as a condition to answered prayer. It is important that we keep our sins confessed to the Lord. “If I regard wickedness in my heart, The Lord will not hear”.
(v) Pray from a grateful heart; Part of prayer is an attitude of thanksgiving.
(vi) Pray according to the will of God; An important condition to prayer is that it is prayed within the will of God. Jesus prayed this way all the time, even in Gethsemane: “Not my will, but yours be done” . We can pray all we want, with great sincerity and faith, for XYZ, but, if God’s will is ABC, we pray amiss.
(vii) Pray in the authority of Jesus Christ; Jesus is the reason we are able to approach the throne of grace, and He is our mediator. A condition to prayer is that we pray in His name.
(viii) Pray persistently; In fact, pray without ceasing. One of the conditions to effective prayer is that we don’t give up.
(ix) Pray unselfishly; Our motives are important.
(x) Pray in faith; Without faith, it is impossible to please God,who alone can do the impossible.
(i) Prayer of faith
(ii) Prayer of worship
(iii) Prayer of request
