Pray intentionally during these 14 days for God’s movement in our midst
Two 24-hour fasts. Sunday lunch to Monday lunch, if your schedule permits, if not choose any two days and fast. If you are unable to practice a food fast, consider social media or another kind of fast.
The Bible, in both the Old and New Testament, calls God’s people to seek Him through prayer and fasting. If we desire for God to work mightily in our midst in 2020, we must humble ourselves and seek His face earnestly and passionately. We must get down on our knees and cry out to God for spiritual power.
My prayer is that this season of 14 days will stir the affections of our hearts for Jesus. We will long for more of God’s presence and power in our lives.
Each day will have a Bible passage to read, then you will pray through ACTS: Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication.
Prayer begins with adoration of God. The Psalms, inspired examples of prayers and songs, are heavily weighted toward adoration. As you grow in the discipline and delight of prayer, you will spend more time in this first element.
The second element is confession of our sin. As we remember who we are when we come into God’s presence, we recognize our sins and that we have fallen short of His standard of holiness. Spend time confessing your sins.
The third element is giving thanks for what God has done for you. This includes both His gracious spiritual provision and physical provisions. Thank God for all that He has done for you.
Finally, prayer rightly includes supplication. This involves bringing our needs to our good, good Father who loves us and cares for us.
