This week- week of prayer

“Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

-James 5:16

How many of you have seen the new movie War Room? If you haven’t yet, I strongly recommend it…it has really motivated me to go deeper in my prayer life.

Yesterday, my dad taught on prayer at church, and he challenged our church body to make this week a “week of prayer.” So today, I’m going to challenge you to do the same!

Here are some steps you can take:

  • If you aren’t already, spend time alone with God each day, reading His Word and talking/listening to Him.
  • Evaluate how much time you spend praying vs. time you spend doing other things, like watching TV, being on Facebook, etc. Choose one activity, and spend more time each day in prayer than you spend doing that activity.
  • Get an accountability partner- someone who will hold you accountable every day this week to be spending more time communing with the Lord.

So, that’s what I’ll be doing this week! I hope you’ll join me for this week of prayer.

In Christ,

Christopher
