Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. -2 Chronicles 7:14
The Lord is calling us to desperate prayer—prayer that clings to Jesus. We don’t simply want His approval of our plans. We want His presence.
Our Connection Point prayer guide is meant to lead you in hour-long daily prayers. There are time segments for each section of prayer to help you commit to an hour of prayer. However, it is more important to follow the Spirit’s leading each day as you begin to pray through this guide. Your prayer life should not simply become a matter of routine or religious activity. It is meant to keep the fire of fresh faith alive as you pray God’s will to be accomplished throughout the earth.
The following prayers are meant to remind you of who you are in Jesus and what your purpose is in His kingdom. As each of us has a firm identity and a compelling purpose our city can be reached.
As we commit to praying daily throughout our city I am confident that marriages will be strengthened, the poor and the marginalized will have their needs met, relationships will be reconciled, and people will be set free from addictive and life-controlling conditions. In short, people throughout the greater Lafayette area will be transformed as they experience the shalom of God. Let’s pray!
