National Day of Prayer - May 2, 2019
God has given us an incredible privilege to be partners with Him in furthering His Kingdom on earth. One of the most powerful tools He has given us is prayer. One of our Pillars is “Believing firmly in the power of prayer.” Ephesians 6:18 Prayer in accordance with God’s will has the power to change lives and circumstances. Amazingly, while prayer can have tremendous power and effect, it is something all of us can do. We can pray at any time, in any place.
We look forward to seeing how our great God “Who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20) answers our prayers…To Him be the glory!
It is exalting God for Who He is.
Read Psalm 96 – A Psalm of worship and praise
Your prayer of worship and praise: “Father I thank you for who you are, for your attributes – Redeemer, Savior, Healer, King of Kings, Fortress, Rock, Great I am, Almighty God, Holy One, Immanuel, Cornerstone, Good Shepherd, Abba, Light of the World, Our Treasure, Strong Tower, Alpha, Omega, Counselor, Prince of Peace, Shield, Deliverer, Bread of Life, Everlasting Father, Lamb of God, Most High, Way/Truth/Life and Friend of Sinners.”
It is agreeing with God about anything and everything that He has said, and confessing it as so.
Read Psalm 51 - A Psalm of confession.
Read 1 John 1:9 - A promise of cleansing.
Your prayer of confession: “Father forgive me for…Cleanse me of…Purify my heart from…”
This is asking for personal needs or perceived needs.
Read Psalm 86 – A Psalm of personal requests.
Your prayer of petition: “Father, I ask for… and for Your Glory that You would do…provide…help me to…”
It is praying for others.
Read Philippians 1:3-11 – A sample prayer for others.
Your prayer of intercession: “Father, I ask for my family, friends, pastors, the church, government leaders, America and missionaries to....”
This is time to quiet yourself, and to listen to anything God might be saying to you in that “still small voice.”
Read 1 Samuel 3:1-10 – An example of hearing God speak.
Your time of quiet listening: “Father, quiet my heart and speak to me, may I hear from You.”
This is a time to be thanking God for who He is and the things HE HAS DONE.
Read Psalm 100
Your prayer of thanksgiving: “Father, thank you for…And I pray all these things in the powerful, resurrected Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen”
May God bless and enrich you as you experience more of Him and as He transforms your life!”
