Good Friday Countdown - It's 12 Weeks Away
To prepare our hearts and minds for Good Friday this year we are executing a prayer/fasting countdown this year and we'd like you to join us!
Every Tuesday we post a section of the Lord's prayer and follow it with our prayer points. We're asking you to use one day out of your week to pray and fast for Good Friday this year. Our united purpose is to focus the attention of our hearts and minds on the Father's call to unite His Church to witness to the communities where He's placed us!
This Week's Prayer:
"Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name."
Hebrews 1: 1-4 - 1 Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but inn these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed the heir of all things, through whom also He created the world. 3 He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of His nature, and He upholds the universe by the word of His power. After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the majesty on high, 4 having become as much superior to angels as the name He has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
Lord Jesus, you are the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of His nature, YOU UPHOLD the UNIVERSE by the WORD OF YOUR POWER. Your name is far superior to all others and you are WORTHY of our worship and praise. The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness. You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of YOUR hands. Lord, EVERYTHING has been put under your subjection and NOTHING has been left outside of your control. You reign supreme.
Hosea 11:10 - "They shall go after the Lord; He will roar like a lion; when He roars, His children shall come trembling from the west; they shall come trembling like birds from Egypt, and like doves from the land of Assyria, and I will return them to their homes, declares the Lord.
When you speak, Father, the ground shakes and your people are humbled. Gather your people in the west valley Lord to come together to approach the throne of GRACE and MERCY with confidence TOGETHER to worship you and you alone. You are worthy of our praise and adoration. Put a burden on our hearts to gather together SO THAT the nations would see you moving on the hearts of your people to gather together to bring glory to your name, the name that is above every other name, Jesus.
Pray the God would pour out a HUNGER on His people. A hunger to SEEK His face. A hunger to KNOW His Word.
Pray that He would send WORKERS into the harvest.
Pray that in 2020 the ground would shake with the call of His voice and His people would hear and respond.
How is God moving in YOU and YOUR Community?
Here's a BOLD Move: Go to the pastor of your neighboring church and invite them to come to the West Valley Good Friday Breakfast WITH you! And then, please, TELL US about what God is doing to unite His people.
Invite your friends: Reserve a table for your church and BRING your pastor and your friends (especially those that don't know Jesus) to come with you.
Sign up for our weekly email, to get our prayer list and blog posts from pastors all over the west valley!
