40 Days of Prayer

Banner 40 days of PrayerDuring the 40 days of Lent we would like to invite everyone in the church to pray. We hope to provide encouragement and opportunities to pray, to listen to God and see Him at work through prayer.

As people connect with God through prayer in different ways we hope to provide a range of opportunities and resources with something that will suit you.

PRAYING PERSONALLY

catching the wave: prayer guide

TRY PRAYING have produced a resource to guide prayer over 40 Days starting on 9th February. This provides a daily Bible passage, a story and suggestions for prayer. It can be downloaded as a PDF at:

http://www.thereishope.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/40-Days-Catching-the-Wave.pdf

Paper copies will also be available at church. We hope that this will be a helpful resource to help inspire prayer.

As well as a Bible passage and a story to reflect on, the “catching the wave” prayer guide encourages us to pray for 3 things each day:

  1. YOUR BIG ISSUE

           If there is one thing that you want God to do during these 40 Days, what is it?

 

  1. YOUR THREE FRIENDS

During these 40 Days you are encouraged to pray for people to become Christians.

 

  1. A NEW WAVE OF REVIVAL

Every day we are invited to pray for revival in this area.

 

More details of these 3 prayer focusses can be found in the extract of the “catching the wave” booklet.

COMMIT to something TRY something new

With the range of things going on, we hope that you have found something that will suit you and help you to pray. There may be other things that are new to you.

Chose one, or a number of things that you like and commit to doing those things during this 40 days.

Also, why not choose something that you haven’t tried before or is a bit different and try it out, it could be really good for you.

 

We pray that through this month we will know God at work and celebrate that together.
