DAY 11 –February 23- Studying God’s Word and Praying Together
40 Day Prayer Journey to Life Transformation

The Word of God is powerful and is alive and therefore eating it everyday , believing and obeying it, coupled with the dynamic power of prayer ,will lead to life transformation in you and in your family if you do both together. “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart” .Hebrews 4:12 .

“Prayer is the key that opens the storehouse of God’s infinite grace and power”. R.A. Torrey. The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much. James 5:16 . I pray that you and your family will strive together to study the Word and pray individually and together as a family. God wants household salvation, study and worship.

Scriptures: Deuteronomy 6:6-9, 11:18-21; Proverbs 4: 20-24; 2Timothy 3:15-17; Ephesians 6:18; 1Thessalonians 5:17

Repent: Of failing to study God’s Word on a consistent basis; of failing to pray and seek God’s face without ceasing; of failing diligently to teach our children the Scriptures and the ways of the Lord; of neglecting the discipline and privilege of praying together; of failing to pray for each other; of neglecting individual and corporate prayer.


• Pray for forgiveness and a renewed hunger or God’s Word.
• Pray that you will grow in the spiritual discipline of studying and praying individually to seek God’s face.
• Pray that you will grow in the knowledge of God’s Word for every aspect of your life.
• Pray that the Father gives you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. Eph.1:17
• Pray for the family to desire to study and pray together and for fresh ways of studying and praying together as a family.
• Pray that parents will study the Word, come to Sunday School and began to talk to their children about the Word of God every day.

Spiritual Health Check Up– Write responses in a journal or notebook. No one will review the answers
Prayer: Are you praying regularly? When?
When did you have a prayer answered?
Are your prayers all requests or do you spend time in praise, awe, and thanksgiving toward God?
Do you take time to be silent before God so that you can “hear” God’s voice?
Do you recognize God’s voice in your life through His Word?
