DAY 19 – March 3- Pursing God in Corporate Worship, Prayer and Praise
40 Day Prayer Journey to Life Transformation

Scriptures: Acts 4: 23-31; Acts 12:5 ; Psalm 95; 2 Chronicles 5:2-14

Repent: Of not worshipping according to the patterns set by the Lord- See e. g., Psalm 95, 150 ; of failing to cultivate an atmosphere of worship personally that honors God and welcomes the Holy Spirit in the corporate gathering.

Meditate, pray, and write down other areas of which to repent and for persons and situations that God places on your heart to pray about or to take action.

Pray:

• Pray for our worship services that the Spirit of Praise and Worship come from sincere hearts and that we will see the manifestation of mighty works.
• For your church and yourself to increase in true corporate prayer.
• For you and your congregation to open our mouths to praise the Lord in unity.
• That congregation will seek the Lord in one accord.
• For a fresh passion for worship among the believers to arise
• That the walls of division created by personal preferences and styles which do not honor the Word of God to be torn down.

DAY 20 – March 4- Pursing Unity and Cooperation
40 Day Prayer Journey to Life Transformation

The initial week of the Lenten season we were praying about our personal relationship with the Lord. We focused on what should be our primary pursuit of loving the Lord with all heart. The second week we focused on our relationship with our family relationships and the third week our relationship with those in the body of Christ. Today we will pray about relationship with the church in our city.

Scriptures: John 17:20-26; Psalm 133; Galatians 3:26-29; Ephesians 2:14-22, 4:1-6

Repent: Of operating in disunity, separation and division towards followers of Christ who do not attend our own congregation or jurisdiction or who have differences of belief on the non-essentials of the faith; of allowing things that were never intended to unite us to divide us; of allowing prejudice and pride and an unteachable spirit to keep us from working together in the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Christ wants His bride to come together in the unity of the Spirit and in love.

Meditate, pray, and write down other areas of which to repent and for persons and situations that God places on your heart to pray about or to take action.

Pray:

• Ask for forgiveness and for the mind and heart to tear down the wall of division among various congregations and Christian leaders.
• Intercede for the body of Christ to function according to Christ’s finished work on the cross-in love, unity and harmony.
• For individuals and congregations to begin pursuing unity and cooperation with other believers.
• For congregations to come together for the advancement of the kingdom of God
• For congregations to come together to make a difference in the city of Detroit and in your city.
• For congregations come together to pray for the city and community on one accord.
• Pray for our worship services that the Spirit of Praise and Worship come from sincere hearts and that we will see the manifestation of mighty works.
• For your church and yourself to increase in true corporate prayer.
• For you and your congregation to open our mouths to praise the Lord in unity.
• For a fresh passion for worship among the believers to arise.
• That the walls of division created by personal preferences and styles which do not honor the Word of God to be torn down.

Day 6 of 40 Day Prayer Journey- Inquiring of the Lord – Life Transformation

I sought the Lord and He heard me24451_10151175680437283_1306356890_n

DAY 6 – February 18- Inquiring of the Lord
40 Day Prayer Journey to Life Transformation

If we really want life transformation and to speak out about the heart of God, then we must actually inquire of the Lord first!! We should expend extended time in His presence in “intimate consultation” ( Heal My Land: Journey to Transformation) until we truly understand what He is saying to you, to us, to the body of Christ. If we are to discover God’s plan for the transformation of each of us, our cities and the healing of the land we must inquire of him first.

Scriptures: Judges 20 ; Psalm 27: 4-5; Jeremiah 23:18 (NKJV); 2 Samuel 21:1 (NKJV)

Repent: Of not inquiring of the Lord regarding what He desires, or the direction He would have us to go; and of not inquiring of the Lord regarding instructions and strategies for ministry; of doing what we want first and only inquiring when we get into trouble.

Repent: Of the ways that you have made important decisions without first inquiring of the Lord.

Pray:• Worship the Lord who invites us into intimate consultation with Himself.
• Worship God as the only true source of knowledge.
• Confess to the Lord the ways you have neglected to inquire of Him, yet claim we are doing what He said do.
• Ask the Lord to teach you how to spend intimate time in His presence, growing in your ability to hear Him.
• Thank the Lord that in the name of Jesus you are welcome into His presence.
• Ask the Lord for wisdom and direction.
• Pray that the Lord will increase your ability to hear.
• Pray that God will teach you to ask Him for specific answers, and then give you the courage to wait for Him..
• Pray that government and spiritual leaders will inquire of the Lord about spiritual and practical issues affecting our city.
• Pray that God will reveal His plans and purposes for your city to those who seek Him with listening hearts.
• Pray for a desire to know the will of the Lord.
• Pray that for pastors and leaders will seek clarity in ministry by inquiring of the Lord in all things.

Each of us should be seeking the Lord through prayer, fasting, and repentance- a process of heart-searching response to the Lord’s desire to commune with you and the body of Christ in order to lead to life transformation and action to carry out His Kingdom purpose. Take the daily steps even if challenging or they take you out of your comfort zone. Step out with great expectation.
