The 40 Day Prayer Challenge is quickly approaching! I know that many people started their own 40 day challenge in January, but we’re going to kick ours off on Ash Wednesday and leverage Lent. I like to call it a Lentperiment or Experilent. Take your pick.
The goal is to establish a daily prayer habit. That one habit will radically alter your destiny. If you want to break the sin habit, you need to establish a prayer habit. And prayer is the key to seeing and seizing God-ordained opportunities. Prayer isn’t about our agenda for God. It’s about discerning His agenda for us on a daily basis!
Don’t know where to start? Start with the Bible. It wasn’t meant to be read. It was meant to be prayed. Start praying the promises of God. Or pray through a book of the Bible. But whatever you do, don’t just read it. Pray it. Meditate on it. And live it.
If your church would like to kick it off with a prayer meeting via simulcast, check this out at incastevents.com. It’ll be a 90-minute event on Ash Wednesday, February 13.Jan 18, 2013 | Mark Batterson
