49 days index

On this 38th day of this 40 Day Prayer Journey we thank the Lord for your perseverance. I pray that you rise spiritually to grow in the study of the Word and in a consistent lifestyle of prayer with fervency, power and love. You can have victory as Day 39 indicates.
Examine your heart and mind. Pray:
Dear LORD, do I really accept Your Word and live according to it regardless of circumstances, or do I only hold onto it as long as it is easy, convenient, or profitable? Do I pray for daily intimacy with you or do I run to you as a last resort ? Do whatever You need to do in me, for me, with me, or through me–even in spite of me–to make it so that I obey your Word and that I pray without ceasing 1 Thess 5:17. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Jehoshaphat : Victory Through Prayer

• Praise God for the power and might that are in his hands, and that no one can withstand Him.
