21 days of prayer – week 3

What a great season of 21 days of prayer it has been. I have learned some amazing things and I am so thankful for my church that continually strives to grow our relationship with God!

Here are week 3’s notes from the little mini-messages that are given before our focused prayer time. Day 21 (tomorrow – 8.25.18), if it’s anything like it’s been in the past, will be time of corporate prayer so there won’t be a message.

I hope you can find something from this last week that you can apply to your life today.

unity + connection

 

The enemy is trying to bring division between, people, families, cultures, etc.

 

Division brings defeat, but unity brings strength.

 

Unity doesn’t happen without connection.

 

3 things we should pray for:

1. God would connect us to the lost

2. A connection with the church

3. An intimate connection with the Homy Spirit.

 

Day 17 – Jamill Gilleylen 

 

Isaiah 22:22 – “I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.”

God has the key.

God gives the church a set of keys.

 

Being locked out is frustrating because there is something we need that we can’t get.

 

We often think we’re locked out, but God gave us a key.

 

2 actions in using the key:

1. Put the key in the lock

2. Turn it (give it to God)

 

Pray with boldness and confidence that you have the master key and can unlock the door for others.

 

Day 18 – Layne Schranz

 

Psalm 103:8-12 – “The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”

 

Matthew 6:14-15 – “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”

 

Matthew 18:21-22 – “Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”

 

Jesus expects us to give to others what we have been given – forgiveness.

 

It’s easy to give God everything except forgiveness.

 

Forgiveness is not saying what they did was okay, it’s giving it to God.

 

Your spirit will be free when you forgive.

 

When we forgive, God comes to us in a new way.

 

Day 19 – Chris Hodges

Luke 7:1-10 – “When Jesus had finished saying all this to the people who were listening, he entered Capernaum. There a centurion’s servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die. The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, “This man deserves to have you do this, because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue.” So Jesus went with them. He was not far from the house when the centurion sent friends to say to him: “Lord, don’t trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, “I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.” Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well.”

 

I have authority because I’m under authority.

Pray for those who have authority over you.
