Enjoying the Journey
Last week I shared a special announcement about a free downloadable resource that will be available each month. It is hard to believe that this is the last day of the first month of a new year! In just a few hours we will conclude January of 2017. My prayer is that you have not only made a good start to this year, but that you will continue to make every day count for Christ!
With that in mind, I would like to make available to you the first of this year’s “Tools to Strengthen Believers.” Several years ago as I studied the life of Daniel the Holy Spirit drew my attention to the fact that the devil tried to get Daniel to stop the discipline of prayer for 30 days (Daniel 6:7).
30 days. That’s all.
Researchers now say that habits are formed in as little as 21 days. In less than a month new patterns emerge. Old ones are broken. 30 days can change everything.
It is my conviction that Satan sought to keep Daniel from praying for 30 days with the idea that if he would stop for 30 days he would not begin again. Then a most wonderful thought came! What if we committed to prayer for 30 days?
30 days. That’s all.
What if believers took a 30 day challenge in prayer? In 30 days you begin to discover the adventure of communion with Christ and intercession for others. If you will truly pray for 30 days you will desire to continue in prayer long after that time.
I have developed a simple 30 day prayer plan that can be used as you approach a brand new month. It can be used every month! And I would like to share it with you…
Print off the prayer guide below and place it in your Bible. Make it a part of your devotional time for the next 30 days. Begin by meditating on the Scripture for each day. Allow it to lead you to specific prayer. While you may pray for many things every day, begin to concentrate on one prayer need each day. Plan now to begin this month with definite prayer!
Please let me know if this tool is a help to you. It would be a joy to hear from you. Don’t just add it to your toolbox! Use it and share it with someone else. Let’s make this our prayer, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1).
