Day One (Prayer Gathering)

January 3, 2024

Lord, thank you for loving me before I ever loved you. I come before you today and ask that you would help me love you better. Holy Spirit, fill me with the desire to please you. Like David, I want to be known as a person after your own heart. Amen

Day Two

January 4, 2024

Jesus, you said the world would know we are your disciples by the love we have for one another. Increase my love for my neighbor. Give me patience for my loved ones. Allow me to extend grace to those that don't deserve it, just like you have done for me. Grant me a heart for loving others so that everyone may see I am your disciple and your name would be made great on the earth. If loving others well will point them to you, then I want to love people for the rest of my life!

Day Three

January 5, 2024

Lord, you have commanded us to pray at all times, without ceasing, and I confess I struggle with this. I confess that I sometimes don’t want to pray. I ask today that you increase my desire to pray. Draw me closer to your heart and will so that I can partner with you in prayer to bring about your will here on the earth. Lead me in developing a lifestyle of prayer. Show me the times and the ways to pray and to be disciplined in my desire to pray. When I don’t know the words,  just let me know your heart.

Day Four

January 6, 2024

Father, your word says that “The churches were being strengthened in the faith, and were increasing in number daily.” I want our faith as a church to continue to grow and I know that I play a part in that.  Like the early church, please strengthen our faith! Give us the faith to believe for things that are miraculous. Give us the faith to believe for the things that are in your heart. Give us faith the size of a mustard seed as we begin, because even that can move mountains!
