PRAYER PRODUCES MIRACLES!

Prayer is the birthplace of miracles! God displays His wonders to those who pursue Him on bended knees. We invite you to take a 40-day journey designed to help you experience the miracles that prayer births. Jesus encouraged us to pray for miracles when He said, “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24). This is a pretty strong challenge. Let’s take Jesus up on His offer! We must no longer stand idly by while an evil tyrant steals our finances, snatches our health, destroys our marriages, and makes off with our career goals and other promises God intended for His children. It’s time to seize your miracle through the power of prayer!

This journey will function like a war college—a place where you’ll be trained in the art of spiritual warfare. You’ll be taught:

WHAT SHOULD I DO OVER THE 40 DAYS?

Over the course of the 40-day prayer journey, you will engage in the following six (6) activities:

1. PRAYER

Beginning June 19, set aside a 30-minute block of time each day for the sole purpose of prayer.

2. FASTING

Fasting means to cease from eating for spiritual purposes. Choose two (2) days each week as fast days during which you will eat one meal on those days and use the other mealtimes for prayer and meditation. Be sure to consult your doctor first.

3. SCRIPTURE READING

Follow the Daily Scripture Reading Plan provided on the back cover of this guide. Daily Bible reading and meditation are vital spiritual practices for every believer. Use the 40 days to immerse yourself in scripture and study on prayer.

4. LEARNING ABOUT PRAYER

Take time to learn more about prayer by reading from the following book: Smith Wigglesworth: On Prayer, Power and Miracles – Compiled by Roberts Liardon (Destiny Image Publishers, Inc., 2006).

5. JOURNAL WRITING

Using a notebook, journal or electronic device record your spiritual experiences during the 40 days. This can include your prayer concerns, specific answers to prayer, and insights God may lay on your heart.

6. SHARING YOUR EXPERIENCE

Share your experience with the 40-Day Prayer Journey community on Facebook and Twitter.

HOW SHOULD I PRAY FOR MYSELF AND OTHERS TAKING THE JOURNEY?

  1. Pray that Prayerfest (7/28/17) would have the greatest participation of the Christ Church family and the most miracles we’ve ever encountered at one service.
  2. Pray for a greater anointing for prayer and intercession in your life and the life of our church.
  3. Pray that our children and youth ministries will move to another level of effectiveness and reach.
  4. Pray that our impact in the community will be heightened through service and evangelism and all of our weekend services will transform the people who attend.
  5. Pray that a move of God would occur in America and in the countries of the world so that the hearts of the people would turn towards God in a greater way.

HOW SHOULD I PRAY FOR MY CHURCH AND THE WORLD AROUND ME?

The prayer wheel offered on the following page will help you create a 30-minute daily time of prayer. It will help you establish a prayer shield around others as you intercede for the passions, people, possessions, purpose, and problems that the people in your life may be facing. This five-step process helps to clarify your focus of spending a minimum of 30 minutes each day in prayer. Pursuing God in prayer will birth the miracles that have evaded you for far too long.

HOW CAN I STAY COMMITTED FOR THE ENTIRE 40-DAY POWER OF PRAYER JOURNEY?

  1. Establish blocks of time in your calendar for prayer, personal reflection and journaling.
  2. Connect with a prayer partner at least once a week.
  3. Commit to reading the daily scriptures and assigned reading.
  4. Expect to see a difference in your prayer life and for miracles to occur. Make a choice to stand on the promises of God.
  5. Read Dr. David Ireland’s blog at www.davidireland.org to gain additional information on how to seize your miracle through the power of prayer.

My Promise

By God’s grace and strength, I promise to take the next 40 days to fully participate in The Power of Prayer Journey. My determination is to not stand idly by but to courageously contend for and seize the promises that God has for my life.

Whatever you ask in My name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. – JOHN 14:13-14
