Week of Prayer and Fasting (Day 4 & 5)

Every year our denomination – the Brethren in Christ – begins the year with a week of prayer and fasting.  We will be providing the devotional helps for the current and upcoming day.

Wednesday, January 4th

What If…

…we pray the Lord’s Prayer with our empty palms literally raised to Him, surrendering ourselves to His will, and allowing Him to fill our hearts and lives with His glory.
Scripture:  Matthew 6:5-15
Prayer Prompt:  Meditate on each verse of Christ’s Prayer, asking God to reveal something new and important for YOU.
Faith Challenge:  Find a quiet, private spot in which to offer yourself and your day to God, then listen for His still, small voice.

Thursday, January 5th

What If…

…we store up treasures in heaven?
Scripture:  Matthew 6:19-24, Luke 18:22, Philippians 4:8, Exodus 20:3-6, Colossians 3:1-17
Prayer Prompt:  Ask God to show you areas of your life that are hindering your walk with Him.  On what do you spend your time, your energy, your money, and your thoughts?
Faith Challenge:  Write them down, put the list in your Bible, and surrender them to God, setting monthly goals of decluttering your heart, mind, and soul, so you can focus on heavenly treasure.

REMINDER: We will be meeting in the Auditorium this evening at 7pm for an hour of prayer.
