20for20 - Jan 2
January 2, 2020
Each day, your prayer assignment will consist of three segments:
Illumination – a scripture reading to bring light into our minds and heart.
Meditation – a moment of silence characterized by listening to the voice of the Spirit.
Intercession – a moment to intercede on behalf of our church
Illumination (5 mins)
- Scripture Reading – Colossians 1:9-12
- Read the text slowly but don’t analyze it. Let it speak to you.
Meditation (5 mins)
- Still your mind and heart. Listen to the voice of the Spirit.
- What is the Lord saying to you and through you?
- Did you receive prophetic impressions to share?
Intercession (10 mins)
The following prayer points are based on the Scripture reading. Feel free to expand on them.
- Ask the Lord: Lord, would you cause LCC to be filled with the knowledge of your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding? And more than increasing what we factually know about you, would you increase our knowledge of you. Would you show us how to love you more. (v. 9)
- Ask the Lord: Father, would you lead us to walk out our faith as a church in a way that pleases you, bearing fruit by abiding in you, and continually growing in our understanding of who you are and what you have done. (v.10)
- Ask the Lord: Father, give us endurance and steadfastness for the many trials and temptations that await us in 2020. Above all, give us joy in every difficult and trying season we might face. (v.11)
- Ask the Lord: Make us a humble and thankful people that understand that every good gift comes from you. Remind us that anything we can accomplish in your name is only accomplished through the strength and power you have provided. (v.12)
