21 Days of Prayer
August 2-23, 2020
During the month of August, we are setting aside 21 days to pray to jump-start a movement of God here at Calvary Church and beyond. As we start our “Pray: Seeking God’s Face” message series, let’s open our hearts to what God is telling us, be in communion with him, and pray big prayers.
In 2 Chronicles 7:14-15, God speaks to Solomon and gives him this promise, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.”
When we, as God’s people, humble ourselves and pray, God responds! Let’s be a people that, by faith, and with humility, call out to God for the healing and unity that our world, nation, and neighborhoods so desperately need.
May the next 21 days of prayer be just the beginning of our commitment to pray and ask God to bring healing and revival to our land. It begins with us, “if my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray…”
Let’s move Calvary Church! Let’s pray!
Below, you will find some ways you can help heal our land through prayer over the coming weeks.
21 Days of Prayer Blueprint
Check out this short 21 Days of Prayer Blueprint with suggested topics to guide you in prayer for 20-minutes each day. You can use this daily by yourself, with your family, or with friends. We encourage you to try to make it a habit to pray with this blueprint every day—starting today! The more you do this, the more these themes will become second-nature to you, and help you be more in tune to God’s voice and leading.
