Our Prayer for You
Our prayer for you during the next 21 days is that you will experience a deeper craving for the beauty of the Lord and for the wonder of his leading in your life and that you will know the fullness of the Holy Spirit and the favor of the God of heaven.
Our prayer is that you will realize you are not alone on this journey. You are joining with your church family in seeking God for significant breakthroughs.
Our prayer is that you will acquire your own prayer-and-fasting testimony. And that God will overwhelm you with his goodness as you seek his power, presence, and provision in every step of your journey.

From Pastor Paul Foslien:
“Here are a few verses and sections pulled out of Psalm 119 that I pray for myself and others. I hope it will give you some help in directing your prayer time. Let the Holy Spirit lead you as you begin to pray. If you feel drawn to certain verses, pray those more. Consistency is the key! I believe God will increase your desire for him during these days.
Lord, you have done many good things for me, just as you promised… teach me good judgment and knowledge. Give discernment to me, your servant; I will eagerly pursue your commandments because you continue to increase my understanding.
Lead me on your path, direct my heart towards you, I lift my hands in prayer because I wholeheartedly searched for you. Do not let me wander away from your truths, give me new life in your ways, and let your blessings always reach me.
I pray that my ways may become firmly established so that I can obey your laws and your will. Teach me, O LORD, how to live by your laws, Uncover my eyes so that I may see the miraculous things in your teachings and I will obey them to the end.
With all my heart I want to win your favor, help me to turn my eyes away from worthless things. Be kind to me as you promised.
Let your hand help me because I have chosen to follow your ways.
Let your mercy comfort me, let your compassion reach me so that I may live, Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, because they are always with me. I have more insight and wisdom than all my teachers, your Holy Word. Your written instructions are always in my thoughts and heart.
Help me God, as you promised, so that I may live. Do not turn my hope into disappointment, make my steps secure through your promise, and do not let any sin control me. Smile on me, teach me your laws, and let my plea for mercy come into your presence. Rescue me as you promised.
