Day 1: Let us humble ourselves and pray

 

Scripture Focus:

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14

Prayer Focus:

Personal:  Take time to identify the concerns on your heart and the longings of your soul.  Bring them to Jesus today.  Spend some time reflecting on 2 Chronicles 7:14 and ask God to speak to you.

Communal:  We long for a fresh and powerful movement of God in our church.  Take time to pray for us to live fully awake lives in Jesus.

 

More from 21 Days of Prayer

What would happen if, for a period of time, you really focused on your relationship with God? What would happen if an entire community took time to really focus on their relationship with God? Every great movement of God first begins with a person who has been deeply moved by God. At Awakening we long to see a fresh and powerful movement of God take place in and through our church. That’s why we are taking 21 Days to reorient our lives to God and His purposes in our lives. 21 Days to pray and fast as a church. In Hebrew, fasting means to humble the soul. Fasting is the act of humbling one’s soul before God by abstaining from something for spiritual purposes. So, as a church, we are inviting you to fast with us from Media (TV, Movies, Social Media, Gaming, etc.) so that we might hear from God and cultivate a deeper hunger for Him. As we fast and pray together (from August 23rd – September 13th), I wonder what God might have in store for you, for us, and for our city?
