Join Us for the Journey!
 As we lead up to the biggest event in  history, Easter, join us in this 40 Days of Prayer. Let’s have an intentional time of united prayer. Our prayer guide serves as a daily reminder and encouragement to take time each day to talk to and listen to God. The guide includes a key scripture, a devotional thought and/or prayer.  Together our prayers will rise like a sweet aroma of praise and devotion to our gracious and powerful God.  With one voice we say, “Lord, teach us to pray.”
 
You can read or listen to each daily prayer thought. Use the audio player below. Each audio byte  will appear as each day arrives. So be looking for the first audio byte  starting February 21 at 7 a.m.

DAY 4: Saturday, February 24

Pray for clean hearts

Mark 1:40-41 NASB
And a leper came to Jesus, beseeching Him and falling on his knees before Him, and saying, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.”
 
Devotional Thought
Many in our nation struggle with sin. God is willing to heal us from sin just as he may heal us from disease. He is a God of compassion and mercy.
 
Prayer
We honor you as Almighty God, full of mercy and kindness. Thank you for the church and Jesus who died for our sins. Thank you for the avenue of prayer and petition. God bless the poor, the sick, and the helpless. Give them healing, hope, and comfort. I pray they would come to know you and have repentance for their sins. Give them a desire to know you. In Christ’s Name, Amen.

    Day 3

    DAY 3: Friday, February 23

    Pray for the power of sin to be broken

    Mark 2:17
    And hearing this Jesus said to them, "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick.  I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
     
    Devotional Thought
    The scribes and Pharisees were 'righteous' in their own eyes.  They were outwardly righteous before men. They depended on their own righteousness, and with respect to the righteousness of the law, felt they were blameless and stood in no need of Christ and His righteousness.  Therefore, they were left to their own foolishness and blindness.
    The sick of whom Jesus was speaking were the sinners who understood their need of Christ as their Savior. Christ calling sinners to repentance and bestowing grace, together with the remission of sins, is His "work" as a physician.   A physician should be found where there is work for him to do. As a physician, Christ is 1) authorized, 2) qualified, 3) has a wide practice, 4) His cures are speedy, radical and sure, and 5) his medicine is Himself.  It follows that those who are sick shall be helped by Jesus. Are you sick, sinful, in need of the Great Physician?   He loves to save.    He can save the vilest sinner!
    Prayer
    Father, we are all sinners and in need of the great Physician Jesus Christ.  We trust in Jesus as our Healer and our Savior.  Thank you for your Holy Word and for the greatest gift of your Son whose death and resurrection gave us new life. I pray those who do not know the Great Physician will come to him for healing. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

    DAY 2: Thursday, February 22

    Pray for our church to be a house of prayer

    Matthew 21:13
    “It is written,” he said to them, “My house will be called a house of prayer.”
     
    Isaiah 56:7
    “…these I bring to my mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer.  Their offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”
     
    Devotional Thought
    Prayer restores intimacy and brings life. Dead in our sinful state, we were apart from Jesus Christ. Prayer is that intimate communication with the Father in heaven and the house of prayer is the earthly expression of what is in heaven.  That is why Jesus was so adamant about it.  He came into His house and saw what it had become an earthly den of buying and selling, of money changers, all of which were a distraction from being in the presence of the Lord.  You are personally a House of Prayer.  As you received Jesus Christ you became the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19).  The Church is also a House of Prayer.  As we gather together we are the corporate expression of prayer. (Matt. 18:20, Heb. 10:24-25 and 1 Peter 2:5).  Whether you look at your home, your body, or your church, each should be a House of Prayer, a place or person to experience the intimacy of prayer and worship.  Let us guard ourselves so distractions do not pull us away from our special relationship with the Father.
     
    Prayer 
    Heavenly Father, with my body, in my home and as a part of a church family, my heart desires to be The House of Prayer that you desire.  I ask that you walk through my house.  I beg that you take away all of my worries, watch over my family, bring quiet where there is chaos, bring light where there is darkness and put love where there is emptiness. I ask that you let my love for you shine so that others can see you in me and come to know an intimate relationship with you. In the sweet name of Jesus, Amen.

    DAY 1: Wednesday, February 21

    Pray for revival

    Luke 1:76-78 ESV
    And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways, to give knowledge of salvation to his people in the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, whereby the sunrise shall visit us from on high.
     
    Devotional Thought
    God, wherever you are you bring light and joy. Your love comes like sunshine into our hearts and removes our dark thoughts. We want you to bring your heavenly light and change us to be like Jesus. People throughout our city and land need you. Come to our city and bring renewal and devotion to Christ. Help us to be a light to the people we see. Let the church be a light to the city.
     
    Prayer
    God we honor you as God and Creator. We are thankful for Jesus’ sacrifice and the church you have given us. We seek to be renewed. Revive our church. Lift our hopes with your light. We pray that your light would shine and your name would be honored throughout our land. We pray our city and land would come to repentance. Help us to show your light and bring the message of salvation to our city. Bless the church. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
