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.
