40 Days of Prayer and Fasting
Prayer Guide for Week 1 (Jan. 11-17, 2021)
“It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’”-Matt. 4:4ff
As we continue our series in Nehemiah: “Starting Over”, pray for what it would mean for us as individuals for 2021 to be a year of “starting over”.
I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.-Neh. 1:4b
As we consider the theme of, “Starting Over”, pray that we would seek as a church family what it would mean for our ministry together. How is God calling us to “start over” (New BHAGs)?
Pray for some of the recent unrest in our nation. Pray for Christians to know how to engage in appropriate ways, but also to keep our mission to reach people for Christ and make disciples.
Pray for travel restrictions to ease and borders to open for our church family to continue to serve the Lord through short-term mission trips in our 5 strategic areas. Pray that each year the number of people and trips we take will multiply.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”-Isaiah 6:8
We live in an area where only 4-5% say they have been born again by trusting in Christ. Who’s your one-who is the one person you are praying for this year that will come to know Christ?
and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;-Acts 17:26-27
