30 Days of Prayer
"I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me seemed insufficient for the day.”—Abraham Lincoln
Starting on November 24 we are entering into 30 days of praying for the next phases of The Journey. We realize that our dependency is on God for this next season & like Abraham Lincoln, we have an overwhelming conviction that if God doesn't move in great ways, the dreams we have will fall flat.
So, we're asking you to join us by taking a day and praying with us over these big issues. Maybe it's some time in the morning, or at bedtime, or on a break at work. Maybe it's time gathered as a family, so your kids can have a 1st-hand experience in this.
As you prepare to pray:
1. Pray in your way. There's no magic formula. Just share your heart with God on these things.
2. You don't have to have a set time. But try to find some place where you won't be distracted.
3. Go to God believing He can do these things. He says to "approach the throne of grace with confidence". Ask boldly!
4. You can always pray for more than one day. Maybe even make a 30 day commitment to pray about these things.
As you pray, read these verses first:
1 John 5:14 ~ This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
Jeremiah 29:12 ~ Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
