DAY 7 – February 19 – Obeying and Serving the Lord
40 Day Prayer Journey to Life Transformation

Scriptures: Deuteronomy 11:18-32; John 14:15-24; Psalm 100 ; Hebrews 9:11-15,12:28-29

This is Day 7 of this 40 Day Journey to Life Transformation. I hope you have been daily meditating on the daily scriptures that apply to a specific focus, fasting and writing in your journal. It takes discipline and getting out of our comfort zone to look at the “man or woman in the mirror” and to repent. God wants you to seek His face in intimate communion, consultation, and listening. He wants you to intentionally seek His heart and voice in everything that you do. He also wants us to obey His Word. During these 40 Days you should want and God wants to see transformation in our hearts, mindset and lifestyle.

The number 40 is a significant number. Biblically speaking 40 is a specific time period associated with a period of testing, trial, probation or chastisement. “The number 40 is a indication that God is ready to birth something new out of pain or challenge”. Kingdom Principles for Everyday Living by Stewart Perrilliat. It rained 40 days and nights , Moses was on the mountain with God for 40 days and nights, and the Israelites wandered for 40 years before they entered the Promised Land. Jesus fasted in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights in the wilderness before He began His ministry. Believe with great expectation that this 40 Day Prayer Journey will develop a more intimate relationship with the Lord, a casting off of “old garments” and a renewed mind and heart which will result in transformation in your life.

Repent: Of professing a love for God without obeying His Word; of making excuses for not obeying His Word; of expecting blessing without obeying ; of persisting in known revealed sin.

Repent: Of serving without joy or unity of the Spirit with brothers and sisters in the body of Christ and at Messiah; of serving out of law and not of love and of serving with impure intentions, goals, and/or reasons.

• Ask the Lord to forgive you for the ways you have ignored His Word and disobeyed and followed your own way or the ways of the world.
• Pray for grace from the Lord to obey His Word.
• Pray for yourself and the church to be filled with a love for the Word of God.
• Pray that believers will witness for Christ through their lives and words.
• Ask God what more can you do to serve our church and community.
• Pray for a fresh anointing to serve with joy, gladness, passion and power.
• Pray that our service would be God motivated, God centered and God ordained.
• Pray that the church will reach out on a greater level to the widows, poor and the less fortunate.
