National Prayer Strategy: Day 7

Day 7: 14 December

James 3: 13 – 18 “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show his deeds done in gentleness of wisdom by his good life. 14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, don’t boast and don’t lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, sensual, and demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition are, there is confusion and every evil deed. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. 18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.” Continue reading “National Prayer Strategy: Day 7”

National Prayer Strategy: Day 6

Days 6: 13 December

Hebrews 10:38 and 39 “But the just shall live by faith [My righteous servant shall live by his conviction, respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, and holy fervor born of faith and conjoined with it]; and if he draws back and shrinks in fear, My soul has no delight or pleasure in him. But our way is not that of those who draw back to eternal misery (perdition) and are utterly destroyed, but we are of those who believe [who cleave to and trust in and rely on God through Jesus Christ, the Messiah] and by faith preserve the soul”.

National Prayer Strategy: Day 5

Day 5: 12 December

James 1:5-8 “If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him. Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind. For truly, let not such a person imagine that he will receive anything [he asks for] from the Lord, [For being as he is] a man of two minds, (hesitating, doubting, irresolute), [he is] unstable and unreliable and uncertain about everything [he thinks, feels, decides].

Psalm 24:4b-6 “……., who has not lifted up himself to falsehood or to what is false, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

National Prayer Strategy: Day 2

DAY 2: 9 DECEMBER 2017

Psalm 24, 3-4a ”Who shall go up into the mountain of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart.”

Out of the purity or impurity of our hearts we execute the works of our hands, which the Lord then assesses as clean or unclean. If our hands are clean, the Holy Spirit can work through us and build a nation through many holy hands that align with righteousness, goodness, mercy, our wisdom and true justice.

National Prayer Strategy: Day 1

Join us as we release the “National Prayer Strategy” for December 2017

DAY 1: 8 DECEMBER 2017

Psalm 24:3-4a ”Who shall go up into the mountain of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart.”

The Lord is calling us deeper into His ways. It is time to purify our hearts and clean our hands, to deal with falsehood and deceit. If we do not draw closer to Him to seek His face, we do not qualify to stand on God’s Holy Place, in the mountain of the Lord. Continue reading “National Prayer Strategy: Day 1”
