Day 16

Scripture Focus:
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” – Acts 1:8

Prayer Focus:
Personal: What would it look like for you to live as a spirit-filled, God-empowered Christ follower? God wants to use you– his ambassador and representative– to reach the ends of teh earth. Ask God to help you hear his voice clearly, and ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with courage to do what He says. Would you listen to the voice of God and step into His prompting today?

Communal: Our community is in a unique position: what’s created here in the SIlicon Valley goes all over the world. What if a movement of God was birthed here and reached the ends of the earth? Pray with us for the power of the Holy Spirit to come on our church, that we may clearly hear God’s voice and live on God’s mission as ambassadors of the gospel in our neighborhood, our city, and our whole world.

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?
