21 Days of Prayer
July 6th – July 26th Northview Church
Are you new to prayer?
It’s not complicated. Be real. Be yourself. God knows who you are and how you are.
And when you come before God, don’t turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show out of their prayers, hoping for stardom! Do you think God sits in a box seat? Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace. Matthew 6:5-6 The Message
This is how Jesus told his followers to pray:
Our Father in heaven,
Reveal who you are. (to me)
Set the world right;
Do what’s best—
as above (in heaven), so below (on earth).
Keep us alive with three square meals. (provide for us)
Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others.
Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil. (We live in a spiritual reality that’s unseen.)
You’re in charge! (Give God control)
You (God) can do anything you want!
You’re ablaze in beauty!
Yes. Yes. Yes.
In prayer there is a connection between what God does and what you do. You can’t get forgiveness from God, for instance, without also forgiving others. If you refuse to do your part, you cut yourself off from God’s part. Matthew 6:9-15 The Message
How it works
To engage in our 21 Days of prayer, read the simple daily prayer devotional. Read the Scripture verses. Pray through the written prayer. Then, pray in your own words, through the items listed.
And keep in mind that prayer is personal; it’s a conversation between you and God. So, don’t feel confined to just what is on the daily prompts. This is a time to share the unique praises and concerns that are on your heart with your heavenly Father. And don’t feel that you have to do all the talking. Take time to pause, to ask God what He has for you today. Listening is also part of prayer.
It will begin Monday July 6th and continue through Sunday July 26th.
Each campus will be open 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. seven days a week and will have a designated area where you can come and pray on your own. The daily prayer prompts will be available there as well as digitally by clicking here.
If you aren’t able to go to your campus, we hope you’ll still join us in praying daily through the process with us. Everything you need is here
