50 Days of Prayer – Week 1

Welcome to the first week of our 50 Days of Prayer. Our fifty-day journey will take us to Easter weekend. During this time, as a community, we are focusing on being intentional in both our personal and communal prayers. We are being obedient to Paul’s words in Colossians 4:2, “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Three words stand out to me in this verse:
Devote: the word means to give all to a cause or to concentrate on a specific pursuit. Over these days we are making a conscious commitment to pray every day. For those of us who already pray regularly we are elevating our commitment, this could be extending our prayer time, trying new prayer tools, or adding elements of fasting to our routine.
Watchful: the command to be watching is a calling to be spiritually alert. Over these 50 days, we will be watchful for opportunities God provides and watchful against dangers such and temptations.
Thankful: And in all of this we will be thankful for what God has done and will do.
This Week’s Prayer Focus:
God, what do you want to say to us?
