DAY 23 – March 3rd – Worship the Lord With Your Whole Heart

Scriptures: Psalm 119:1-10; John 4:24


Miss Clara prays, “Raise up those who will worship you with their whole heart, that we may proclaim You King of kings and Lord of lords!”


We divide up our time, our energy, our attention, and our resources but we cannot give God a divided heart. His Word promises that we will find Him when we seek Him with our whole heart. Psychology 101 teaches that we behave as we believe. If our lives do not worship Him whole-heartedly, we are not an effective witness to proclaim God as King. Half-hearted Christians are not ready for the frontline of warfare. The most dangerous soldier is one who is distracted or ready to retreat at the first sign of danger.*


Only God is worthy of our worship but we are distracted and attracted to so many other things that take His place; our self, our stuff, our schedules that overflow—and we leave God with a sliver of our heart, time, and worship. When you go into your War Room, or prayer time leave your cell phone in another room. Give Him your undivided attention.*


Write down anything that distracts you, pray over it, and keep your whole focus on Him the whole time. If you think about something that happened earlier, write it down and pray over it. If you think of something you need at the store, write it down and thank Him for His provision. If you think of something you need to do, write it down and pray for guidance and for Him to be glorified in it. If you think of people you need to call, write their names down and pray for them. Keep your heart, mind, and attention wholly holy for Him (Psalm 119:1–10)*.



  • Pray that you be reconciled with anyone with whom you have had an argument or disagreement.
  • Pray that your children and the children of the community will grow up in the training

   and instruction of the Lord and will learn to walk in His ways.

  • Pray for church leaders. Pray that they will serve faithfully, humbly and with wisdom.
  • Pray for those who are in prison .
  • Pray for the United States Supreme Court and the Justices.

DAY 24 – March 4th – Praise Jesus!


Scriptures: Psalm 34:1–8; Psalm 100


Miss Clara begins her powerful prayer at the end of the movie by saying, “Lord, You are good, You are Mighty and You are Merciful—Praise You, Jesus!


You will notice a pattern in the prayers written in the Bible and spoken by Miss Clara—most begin with praise. Praise is the professing and blessing of God’s unchanging attributes. Focusing on His attributes gives us courage and confidence to lay down any of our challenges, crisis, or concerns into the hands of our God who knows and does what is best.


Get into the habit of starting every prayer, even if it is only a sentence or two, with words of praise and adoration. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise before you proceed any further in your conversation with Him. Finish each prayer by telling Him that you love and trust Him. For each of your prayer strategies write down three or more attributes of God that you will focus on in awe, affection, and affirmation of His authority and power in all things (Psalm 34:1–8).*(Kathy Branzell)



  • Pray a prayer of praise and thanksgiving.
  • Intercede for the body of Christ to continue steadfastly in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in prayer.
  • Repent of declaring love for God while not living in love with brothers and sisters in the Lord.
  • Pray that the church have a fresh conviction and commitment that brings them to pursue different relationships with those who are different from ourselves in culture, race, ethnicity, and socio-economics.
  • Praise God that He is a God of fellowship and communion and, as a good Father, He loves to draw His children together.
