Day 6

Scripture Focus:

3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.  Philippians 1:3-6; 9-11

 

Prayer Focus:

Personal: God’s not finished with you and that’s great news! Today would you rest in the truth that what God began He will complete. Spend time thanking God for what He has done, is currently doing and will do in your life. And then make Philippians 1:9-11 your response prayer back to God.

Communal:  We are quickly approaching our 3rd Birthday as a church. God has been so faithful to us. We believe this is the very beginning of the story of what He is going to do in and through us. Would you pray that God gives us supernatural discernment to know what the good work He has for us and that in all we do we would bring glory and praise to God.

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?
