Day 10

Scripture Focus:
This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
 hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
 your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’”
Matthew 6:9-13

Prayer Focus: Give us today our daily bread.
Request: asking God to give us what we need to make it through that day. [Ps. 5:3]

Personal: It can be difficult to admit how needy we are, but take a moment to honestly bring your needs & concerns to God in this moment: spiritual, emotional, physical, relational, vocational, financial, etc. Remember that God knows what you need and longs to meet those needs.

Communal: We have some big needs as a community– a full-time family pastor, kids ministry volunteers, missional community leaders, set-up and tear-down teams, a cafe team, just to name a few. Pray for God’s provision at Awakening. Pray that we rely on God to meet all our needs in His timing.

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?
