Week of Prayer
January 7 – 13
We are asking each every person to set aside some special time
the first full week of January to seek the Lord in prayer.
We will focusing on:
DAILY PRAYER POINTS –
“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 heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14, NIV
Sunday – If My People
Prayer Focus: This verse is not directed toward those who do not know God, but to those who “are called by my name.” Spiritual awakening and healing must begin in the house of God—in all of us who are called to be representatives of Christ in our world.
Monday – Humble Yourselves
Prayer Focus: Humility is the action of putting others first, displaying an attitude of simplicity, gentleness, respectfulness, and modesty. James 1:9 declares, “Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position” (NIV). In God’s economy, showing humility makes you important to God and His kingdom.
Tuesday – Pray and Seek God’s Face
Prayer Focus: Throughout history, the great spiritual revivals and awakenings were preceded by sincere prayer and intercession. Prayer aligns us with God’s will and purpose. Prayer moves His hand in amazing, powerful ways to save, heal, and deliver, to transform people and nations. Giving ourselves to prayer and seeking God’s face is central to bringing about His intervention.
Wednesday – Repent and Turn
Prayer Focus: Repentance is turning from evil and learning to follow God. The Spirit of God reveals to us areas of our lives that we need to bring under His control. As we identify with Christ in His death and resurrection, and offer ourselves completely to Him, He will form us into the people He desires.
Thursday – Hear from Heaven
Prayer Focus: As we humble ourselves, pray and seek God’s face, and turn from our wicked ways, God promises to hear our cries. He does not turn a deaf ear to those who sincerely seek Him in humility and righteousness; rather He bends low to listen, to hear our pleas and petitions.
Friday – Restore the Land
Prayer Focus: In response to our prayer and repentance, God promises to restore. Just as rain brings new life, the Holy Spirit will refresh and renew His people and His church so that we will effectively influence the culture for good and righteousness.
Saturday – Pray Continually
Prayer Focus: Charles Spurgeon declared, “Whenever God determines to do a great work, He first sets His people to pray.” Prayer is a non-negotiable spiritual discipline. The outworking of God’s purposes in our lives, in our churches, and in our world is absolutely dependent on it.
There is an expanded Prayer Point Sheet available at the church office / welcome table.
Join us and Christians around the world as we seek God for our churches, nation, and world!
