Can you believe that we have made it to the 7th The Prayer Project 30 Day Written Prayer Challenge? Unbelievable! I am gushing! For me, it's like watching a baby grow and blossom. Watching this project develop over this past year has been humbling. I am beyond delighted in the work that God is doing through all of you are are participating in these challenges with me. It truly warms my heart to see God's love being stretched far and wide through you all. It brings tears to my eyes when I think of the privilege we have to be God's hands and feet. I can imagine our Heavenly Father looking down at you right now beaming with pride.
Well before I start crying a river lol, let's jump into challenge 7 details!!!
Now I know you are wondering what those 6 beautiful ladies are doing up there on The Prayer Project flyer. I'll get to that in juuust a minute :).
First I just have to say it's amazing how God connects people together. In just a couple of years I've crossed paths with each of the ladies above via social media. Not sure how exactly lol...but God places people in our lives for reasons sometimes we don't know until further down the line. Each of these women pictured above have such heart warming amazing spirits. They each genuinely love the Lord and are serving Him in the way that He created them to.
Each of them have inspired me and/or encouraged me in some way shape or form.
So why are they on the flyer??
These ladies each have a story they would like to share with you. I wanted to do something different for the 7th challenge (the number 7 is special to me) and introduce you other like-hearted individuals who are also passionate about prayer. God has given us ALL a story to tell and God laid it on my heart to ask these women to share theirs with you.
It is my hope that what they share encourages you during this challenge and inspires you to continue in your commitment to praying for others.
"Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had." - Philippians 2:1-5
For the month of March, we are opening it back up to writing prayers for whomever you choose.
How to Participate:
- Choose a person that is on your heart to dedicate 30 days of prayer to. Do not inform the person you are praying for that you are doing this.
- For 30 days, write one prayer a day as a journal entry. Keep them in a handwritten journal or type them and keep them in a folder on your computer.
- At the end of the 30 days, if you choose, present the person you were praying for with the prayer journal as a gift. Let them know that God placed them on your heart to lift them up in prayer and that you decided to pray for them with no hidden agenda or intent to receive anything in return. Make sure you are doing this as a pure and genuine act of love.
