DAY 29 – March 12 Demonstrate God’s Grace
40 Day Prayer Journey to Life Transformation

We have been pressing through these 40 days of prayer and repentance. How have you been challenged, growing, laying aside weights and sin, and being renewed toward transformation? God is love and He wants us to demonstrate that love in our relationships with the “saved” and those who do not know Jesus Christ personally. We should live as a demonstration of His love, grace, mercy and truth so that we will glorify Him and that someone may be saved through Him. Invite the Holy Spirit to search your heart to reveal areas where transformation needs to occur in you, and in the church. Today on this 29th Day let us walk in the grace of God and show grace to others.

Scriptures: John 1:14-18; Acts 4:32-33; 11:19-24; 14:1-7, 21-28; 1 Peter 4:7-11

Repent: Of not walking in the love and grace that God has bestowed upon you; of receiving grace but not demonstrating grace to others; of not walking in the grace He give us to live a life of power and testimony that glorifies Him. Of___________________________________. (Fill in the blanks).

Receive: Grace to live according to His commands and His call upon our lives; His grace to be and to do all that He requires of us to do to bless others, to build up His Kingdom and to glorify Him.

• Confess to the Lord the ways you have not walked in love and grace with the lost, your neighbor and family members.
• Pray for you and the church to receive a fresh revelation of the marvelous grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.
• Pray that you learn to see grace as a gift we have received and are to bestow freely upon others and that you are generous to bestow grace to others as you have freely received.
• That restoration of graciousness in our attitude, speech and actions will be demonstrated in you and will permeate the church.
• Ask the Lord to do a work in your heart that will release you from any spirit, thought or unforgiveness that blocks your relationship with those who do not know Jesus Christ, your neighbor and family members.
• Praise God that He is gracious, full of compassion and abounding in mercy; that we are recipients of His saving, redeeming, and delivering grace.

DAY 13 – February 25- Jesus, Man of Prayer
Prayer and the Word is Foundation for Life Transformation
40 Day Prayer Journey to Life Transform

Scriptures: Mark 1:35 ; Luke 5:16 ; Luke 6:12; Ephesians 6:18

Prayer should be a way of life for each of us-our lifestyle. Jesus told his disciples that man should always pray and not faint (Luke 18:1) and to pray without ceasing 1 Thessalonians 5:17). We should listen and talk to God all the time. Prayer is about a love relationship with God where we talk to him, but also listen ( John 7:16). The heart of prayer can be found in Jesus Christ who prayed often. Jesus found the will of God through prayer. Jesus often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed. Jesus heard from the Father in prayer (John 12:49-50. Jesus’ prayer life was full of variety- in the morning, on mountainsides , in a garden and more. He kneeled, and another time He was prostrate and another time he stood with His eyes fixed on heaven. Jesus is our prime example of prayer. Learn to pray like Jesus.

Reflect: If someone wrote a theme for your life, would prayer be a key theme in it?
What needs to be improved in your prayer life if you want to pray like Jesus?

Pray:• Praise Jesus for modeling a strong positive pattern of prayer.
• Confess any shortcoming in your prayer life that you are aware of by looking at the prayer life of Jesus.
• Ask God to teach you to pray with love, power and authority.
• Thank God for the Holy Spirit that helps us when we don’t know what to pray for. Romans 8:26
• Pray that the Word of God will be the standard and motivation for all training.
• Pray for Christ to reveal Himself to those who despair, giving their heart-blazing hope by His Word.
• Ask God for grace to pray consistently with all kinds of prayers as Jesus did.

Spiritual Check -Up
Answer the reflection questions. Read and meditate on the Scripture passages for today. As you read each reference ask the Lord what he wants you to learn from the scriptures and to use in your own prayer life.
