“Look, I am making everything new.”– Revelation 21:5
There is power when the body of Christ moves in unity. There is tremendous power when we are unified in prayer, asking the God we love to move in our individual lives as well in the life and ministry of our church. Over these past 21 days, we have spent an intentional season of “Drawing Near” to God based on His promise in Scripture that if we draw near to Him in faith, then He will draw near to us (James 4:8). You stuck with us all the way through and that deserves a “well done!”
What’s next? While these 21 days of devotionals and prayer items come to a close, our ministry of prayer over our own hearts, our families, our communities, and our church must continue! Our hope is that together we will continue to ask God to make 2022 a year of spiritual movement and transformation as we have never seen before in the history of West Ridge Church!
Why must we keep praying? Because we know that before revival can happen in our community, country, and world, it must first take place within each heart. Our heart’s desire must be directed to one thing: knowing and pleasing God (Col. 1:10-18). We are praying that we might love Him in such a way that we will truly be willing to give Him first place in everything. In the words of Jim Cymbala, “If we prevail in prayer, God will do what only what he can do. The name of Jesus, the power of his blood, and the prayer of faith have never lost their power over the centuries.” This is why we must be a praying church.
Today let’s go before God, humble and contrite. Let’s invite Him to search our hearts and reveal any unclean way in us. Why? That we might be lead in the way everlasting! (Ps. 139:23,24). Let’s ask him to expand the borders of our faith and to raise the threshold of our love. Let’s pray for personal revival!
Let’s pray that our church would be blessed! Let’s ask God that as a body we would love Him more, grow in our faith, serve one another, and be willing to share the story of His salvation. Let’s ask Him to renew our worship and deepen our discipleship. Let’s pray that our community would experience the love of God reverberating out of the walls of our church and flowing into the hearts of men, women, and families! Let’s pray for revival! Let’s pray that every day we would become more fully devoted followers of Jesus!
