Day 5

Scripture Focus:

8 Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” I said, “Here I am. Send me.” Isaiah 6:8

Prayer Focus:

Personal: Would you make that you’re prayer today – Here I am, send me! Today I long to see the world through the eyes of God and respond to others with the love of God. Let my heart break for the things that break Your heart.

Communal: May God use Awakening to see a generation experience new life in Jesus. Pray that we as a community would care more for those who are far from Jesus than our own personal comfort. May we be a people of contagious faith and irresistible love. Take time and pray for our city, government, workplace, schools, and neighborhood.

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?
