Jabez called out to the God of Israel, ‘If only you would bless me, extend my border, let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm, so that I will not experience pain.’ And God granted his request.”1 Chronicles 4:10
At the start of a new year, God wants to do something new in the heart of our church family. Looking at the example of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:10, we’re asking you to join us for a 60-day prayer challenge. For 60 days, let’s be intentional with our requests… and as we pray, remember we pray to the God of promise, and we come to Him realizing our need.
The Prayer Challenge
For 60 days (January 7 – March 7) every day… twice a day… we’re setting aside time for prayer. Make a note, set a reminder… do whatever it takes to remind you to, in all humility, go boldly before the throne.
And during these times, we’re praying for three specific things: a deeper sense of God’s presence, increased faith, and for the purity of God that allows us to be used by God.
- Presence of God
More than His blessings, we want to experience His presence. It’s not what He can give us or do for us. It’s Him alone we need to want more than anything.
- Increased Faith
Just as Jabez saw God as his only help, that’s our prayer. That we would not look to ourselves, but to see what only God can do… and ask for it.
- Purity of God
We would live our lives in a way that allows God to work in us and through us to accomplish His purpose.
