THE PRAYER PROJECT

The Prayer Project Challenge #8 Sign-Up: Praying With A Childlike Heart

“I’m telling you, once and for all, that unless you return to square one and start over like children, you’re not even going to get a look at the kingdom, let alone get in. Whoever becomes simple and elemental again, like this child, will rank high in God’s kingdom.” - Matthew 18:3 (MSG)




(Sign-up link at bottom of this post)
Remember how intently and persistently you prayed when you first began your journey as a Christian? I would say it’s comparable to the purity and honesty of a child - full hearted and innocent; unaware of God’s great love for him/her but knowing without a shadow of a doubt that He is listening.

I remember first being introduced to Jesus. My parents taught me about God’s love very young. When I was old enough to understand what it meant to be saved and become a child of God, every single night before bed I would drop to my knees and pray. 

With my head buried into my covers, and my little hands clasped so tight, I would tell God how much I loved Him, how much I wanted to go to heaven to be with Him and that I didn’t want to go with the devil in hell. Lol! As a little girl, this was my routine every single night. 

As innocent and simple as that prayer was, God listened. 

I can imagine how much pleasure He felt knowing that His little one loved and believed in Him at such a young age. At 5 years old, there were no hidden motives or selfish pursuits. There was only pure adoration toward God.

This pure and humble state of prayer is what God searches and longs for in us also as adults.

“God is always on the alert, constantly on the lookout for people who are totally committed to him.” - 2 Chronicles 16:9 (MSG)

This is what I try my best to remember when communing with God. To be honest, naked and true before Him, leaving all hidden agendas and selfish motives aside and just being. Especially since God already knows what’s in my heart. It is important to me that I am sincere. 

This is what I want to challenge each of you for the month of June. To be as sincere and as honest with God in your prayers as you were when you first accepted Him.

Prayer doesn’t need to be pretentious in any way. God desires candor. He can handle it. It’s what He wants from us. 

For the month of June I am challenging you to pray for those who you first learned to pray for as a little child: your family.

I remember going down the line of family members when I first learned how to pray as a child, I would pray, “Please bless Mommy, and Daddy, and Auntie and Uncle, my sister and brother etc…” These were the most important people in my life at the time. These were the people that knew me, raised me and loved me. 

As we get older, our prayers tend to become more selfish. We never stop praying for members of our family, but our prayers tend to consist mostly of petitions for ourselves. 

So here is the challenge: 

Theme for June: Pray for a member of your family. 
(Be it a spouse, a child, a parent, cousin, grandparent or sibling)

How to Participate:

  • Choose a member of your family that God places on your heart to dedicate 30 days of prayer to. Do not inform them 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 or when you choose, present the family member that 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.

(Note: Each challenge theme changes, if however you already have someone in mind that you would like to pray for that doesn't fit the theme, please go ahead and pray for that person. If God places it on your heart to pray for your family as a unit, please feel free to do that.)

Challenge #8 of The Prayer Project 30 Day Written Prayer Challenge will begin

The Prayer Project Challenge #7 Sign Up: "Having The Attitude of Christ"




(Sign-up link at bottom of this post)
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.

The Prayer Project Challenge #6 Sign Up: "Showing Love When Hate Seems Easier"



It's easy to be angry. It's easy to feel rage and frustration when we are constantly seeing injustices take place. It's easy to judge situations when we are viewing from a limited perspective. It's easy to be enraged. But with these emotions we feel, we have a choice.

We can choose to let hate and bitterness fill our hearts as a result of the injustice we constantly see, we can yell, riot, and create chaos because of the hurt we feel, or we can take a more difficult yet productive route. We can channel all of that negative and hurtful energy, release it to God, who is in control of everything, let Him take vengeance and simply do what He asks of us. Love. Looking beyond the faults of our enemies and loving in spite of.

"Stop being angry and don’t try to take revenge. I am the Lord, and I command you to love others as much as you love yourself." - Leviticus 19:18 CEV

There it is right there. If we say we trust God, we should listen to what He says no matter how difficult it may seem. No matter how much we don't understand, we still have a responsibility to be obedient. Our Heavenly Father is all knowing and all powerful. He made us. Don't you think He knows what is happening down here on earth? Don't you know that He has a plan in all of this? Of course it hurts and of course we, with our limited perspectives and finite minds, can't fully understand, but God has a plan. Trust that.

In the year of 2015, let us to go into the new year with clean, pure hearts free of hate and rage and allow God to fulfill His promise to us - "Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say,“I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord." - Romans 12:19 NLT

Join me in praying for our police officers, sheriffs, fire marshals, prosecutorial officers and judicial officers. With the world questioning their authority and decision making let us do what God asks of us and love them by placing them in His hands and lifting them up in prayer.

The Prayer Project Challenge #5 Sign Up: Restoring Hope In Our Youth



And we're back with the 5th challenge of The Prayer Project 30 Day Written Prayer Challenge. I can't believe that we are already on challenge 5! I want to extend a sincere thank you to all who have participated in these challenges since January/challenge 1. Everyone who has jumped on the bandwagon during these last 9 months, thank you as well for your participation and support!

Now let's get into this month's challenge details. (Sign-up below)

For the last few months my heart has been extremely heavy because of recent events concerning our youth and adolescents. It seems as if every time I look at the news I am hearing about another kidnapping, or a shooting, or a killing, or a teen being murdered...So many stories have been surfacing regarding our young that my heart has been continually heavy for them. I can only imagine what is going on through the minds of the many children who are watching these stories as well.

With all of these terrible events happening, my concern really has been for the hearts of our youth. I am constantly concerned not only for their physical well being and safety, but even more so their emotional and mental well being. So many odds are against them. With all that is going on in our society, imagine how easy it is for them to lose hope and develop fear.

It is mainly our jobs as adults and as their guardians to reassure them that they are loved, protected and secure. I want our children to continue to hope and dream, I want to restore peace and security in their hearts and remove any fear they have of growing up. God loves them and has purposely placed them in our lives to care for and to help mold. He has specific plans for them too!

With this being said, it is my hope that you would come together and join me in praying for our children and teenagers. The battle we are fighting in trying to keep them physically and emotionally safe and healthy can't be won on our own. We have to get down on our knees and seek the One who gave them to us. For God alone knows each of them and has the power to keep them safe and strong as their little hearts and minds continue to develop and grow.

Will you join me?

“Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn't receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them." - Mark 10:14b-16(NLT)

----

Theme for September: Pray for a child or a teenager.

How to Participate:

  • Choose a specific child or teenager that God places on your heart to dedicate 30 days of prayer to. Do not inform the child/teen 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 or when you choose, present the child/teen 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.
(Note: Each challenge theme changes, if however you already have someone in mind that you would like to pray for that doesn't fit the theme, please go ahead and pray for that person. If God places it on your heart to pry for a group of children/teens or generally pray for all children and teens please feel free to do that.)

Challenge #5 of The Prayer Project 30 Day Written Prayer Challenge will begin September 1, 2014.

The Prayer Project Challenge #4 Sign Up: Turning The Other Cheek



We are approaching our fourth challenge of The Prayer Project! I am beyond excited for this particular challenge as I believe that it will be the most difficult yet most impactful. 

For the month of July we will come together once again and intercede on behalf of individuals that God places on our hearts. This month I am challenging you to pray for someone who has hurt you. This may be a friend, a sibling, a parent, a spouse, a boyfriend, a girlfriend etc. Anyone who may have betrayed you or hurt you in a way where you may have found it hard to forgive; or maybe you haven't yet forgiven them. 

You may be asking, "Why in the world should I pray for someone who has/had no concern for me? They did me wrong, why do they deserve my prayers?" Let's see what Jesus has to say.

"But if you are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. Pray for the happiness of those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you." - Luke 6:27-28 (NLT)

If Jesus asked us to pray for those who hurt us, there has to be a reason why we should right? During this challenge we will further discuss why Jesus asks us to do this. (Sign up to receive emails below.)

Holding on to hurt or bitterness toward an individual does you more harm than it does them. Whether it was intentional or unintentional, the effects of dealing with hurt, especially if it was from someone close to you, can be very damaging if dealt with improperly. Releasing that hurt through prayer is symbolic of handing over the burden of that hurt and casting it onto God. Imagine the peace you could have by praying for the very person that tried to destroy you. Imagine God's power healing the heart of someone who tried to ruin you as a result of your prayers. 

This challenge is indeed the most difficult so far, but I believe that together we can overcome the hurt that may be holding us back from receiving all that God has in store for us. Join us on this journey of freedom, peace, forgiveness and tough but rewarding love.

Theme for July: Pray for someone who has hurt you or someone you know.

When Passion Meets Purpose

So let's have an honesty hour...

With the growth of the project I started at the top of this year in January, The Prayer Project, my mind has been filled with new ideas to get it to grow, expand and flourish. I recently have been overwhelmed with my many ideas of turning this project into a business. Although having these thoughts are perfectly normal and fine, I really have to take a step back and remember why I started this project in the first place. So I'm taking a moment to check my heart and correct any selfish motives behind its growth.

I didn't start The Prayer Project for the purpose of turning it into a business. Not at all. Money was the furthest thing in my mind. I began this movement because I saw a need. I saw a heartbreaking need that I knew I wanted to help with. God opened my eyes and put a burning fire in my heart filled with intense compassion and desire to contribute to a change. I knew then that I couldn't be afraid anymore. I had to do it. I had to listen to and answer the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit impressing on my heart how He's prepared me for this.


When I think of why I started The Prayer Project, I'm reminded how sad I felt for those with broken hearts that had grown cold; for those who had never experienced the warmth of God's love through the people surrounding them. I remember believing that I had something worth sharing that could help. I remember feeling overcome with excitement that God had given me something to offer.

It saddens me that so many of us are lost. We don't know how to love. We are subconsciously relying on the poor examples of love that we see on TV and in our homes not knowing that these poor examples are singlehandedly destroying us and our relationships. Some of us don't even understand what it means to be selfless or even kind. 


These are things that break my heart. 

 

I see people "cutting people off" left and right, treating relationships and people as possessions and commodities that are interchangeable, as long as it benefits them. We don't know what it means to serve or to put others before ourselves. We have completely lost and overlooked what Jesus taught us was MOST important (John 15:12). Our hearts are a mess because if it. 

 

THIS is why I started The Prayer Project. 

 

My passion is to contribute to changing people's tainted perspective of love and helping reinstitute Jesus' example of what love is and how we are to love others.

My prayer for this project is to reach the unreachable. To build a community of intercessors to be the extension, the hands and feet, of Jesus' heart; sharing with the closed-hearted and cold-hearted His perfect and transforming love in efforts to break open their hearts to receive all that Jesus Christ has for them. As a result, I pray that this will create a ripple effect, where more people are reached by gentle acts of genuine Christly love, recognize God's immense love for them and do the same for others. 


My prayer is that hearts are changed and made whole, broken relationships are restored and that love, God's love, begins to rule in more hearts and more homes and will ultimately draw the unsaved to salvation.

By Christ's love, all of this is possible.

I recognize and am in constant awe of the power in God's love. It was God's love that saved me. Saved me from myself and saved me from living a life of ruins. It is God's love that continues to rescue me, over and over again. And for this reason alone, it my life's mission to share that with as many people as I can.

This is why this project is so near and dear to me. This is my personal reminder. I've written this here so that I will never forget, no matter how large or small The Prayer Project becomes, the reason I've started this project.

Love.

 

"Dear Children, let us stop just saying we love each other; let us really show it by our actions." 

- 1John 3:18 (NLT)

 

The Prayer Project Challenge #3 Sign Up: Trusting God With Your Love Story



It’s that time again! Are you ready?

We are finally nearing the month of May and I am so excited about The Prayer Project Challenge #3! Can you believe it? We are on the third challenge! (Sign up below)

May’s challenge will be a unique one. For the month of May, the challenge is to commit to writing prayers for 30 days for your future husband or wife (if you are not married already). Living in a society that places so much emphasis on finding the right mate…Have you ever thought of praying for them?

Have you ever considered covering them in prayer although you may not even know who they are yet?

Most of us desire a Christ-centered marriage and although many of us are single and haven’t a clue who our spouse may be, an awesome way to begin preparing your heart and the heart of your future spouse is to begin praying for him/her before you actually meet them.

Before I go on, please understand that this is NOT a ploy to get God to move faster to bring you a mate. Praying for them will not make God send them to you quicker. The purpose of this challenge is to 1) Help you entrust your desires to God, 2) Prepare your heart for your future mate by spending quality time communing and communicating with God, and 3) Strengthening the heart of your future spouse by covering them in prayer without their knowing.

The joy of praying for your spouse or future spouse lies in how much it may actually change you. You may begin to pray for confidence and fearlessness, for him or her; or humility and a servant’s heart in your future mate and begin to realize how much you also need these characteristics. Preparing your heart for your future mate involves allowing God to change yours first.
-----

Theme for May: Pray for your future spouse. (If you are married, pray for your spouse)

How to Participate:
  • Sign up for the challenge here
  • Commit to 30 days of written prayers for your future spouse. If you are engaged to be married or are already married, do not inform him/her 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, save your journal to present to your husband or wife, when/if God blesses you to marry. If you are already married, if you choose, present your prayer journal as a gift to your spouse.
  •  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.

How to Pray When Facing a Crisis

We know that God is available 24/7, every hour of every day to hear from us when we are in need. What a wonderful privilege it is to have that kind of access to our Creator! But sometimes situations happen in our lives or in the lives of someone we know where we feel a sense of urgency. A crisis has appeared out of nowhere and you don’t know what to do. The emotions you may be experiencing are overwhelming and you know that this time is different. You REALLY need God’s attention. You want to make sure that God hears you and will answer.

In urgent moments like these we often look to God because we know that there isn't any one person that can explain or understand the fullness of what is happening but God. We also tend to feel guilty or embarrassed to bring it to God because we are extremely angry or frustrated because we know the situation is out of our control. Don’t. God knows our frustrations and He knows that we get angry. After all, He is the one who gave us those emotions! When you feel this way, don’t feel guilty or apologetic for feeling that way. Pour it ALL out to God...all of it. Cry, snot, scream - whatever you have to do, just release it all to Him.


I used to feel bad when I “let God have it.” All of my frustration, hurt and anger I would express to Him and afterward I would feel SO much better. Like a huge weight was just lifted off of my shoulders. But then I would feel terrible because I had basically just yelled at God lol! I would feel so sorry.

Just this past week I read something that really helped me.
 

“If you are smack-dab in the middle of a crisis today, cry out to God. Tell Him exactly how you feel. He can handle it. Someone once told me that God is not embarrassed by the honesty of our prayers. Get gut-level honest with God and tell Him how badly you hurt, how angry you are, and that you need His help to get through this crisis. Don’t worry about God – He can deal with this. When you cast (which means “to throw”) your cares on Him, throw your best stuff at Him. He wants you to. It’s a great first step toward praying appropriately in the face of a crisis.”John Hull, Pivotal Praying


“God is not embarrassed by the honesty of our prayers.” – Whoa. I can’t explain to you how much that sentence alone helped me. I no longer needed to feel bad, because God actually wants us to dump everything we are feeling on Him! God wants us to be 100% honest with Him. He wants us to show Him our REAL emotions. THIS is how we connect with God. This vulnerable, open state is where God can do His best work. But He needs one thing from us. HONESTY.

“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” – 1Peter 5:7(NIV)

The Prayer Project Challenge #2 - Sign up


I am beyond excited to continue with challenge #2 of The Prayer Project 30 Day Written Prayer Challenge. So many people were blessed by the first challenge that I have decided to continue this project throughout the entire year! For the month of March we will again commit 30 days of prayer to individuals that God places on our hearts. I have decided to change the theme for this challenge. The challenge for the month of March is to dedicate 30 days of written prayers to someone you do not know personally. This may include someone you may know in passing, someone you may know but have yet to develop a personal relationship with, or even someone you have yet to meet. How much of a blessing would it be to intercede on behalf of someone that least expects it? I'm thrilled to continue the project this upcoming month and look forward to displaying love in a new way. (Sign-up below)


Theme for March: Pray for someone you do not know personally.

How to Participate:
  • Choose a person that you don't know personally that God places on your heart to dedicate 30 days of prayer to. Do not inform the person you are praying for that you are doing this.

  • 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.
