21 Days of Prayer
January 7-27, 2018

Join us on a prayer journey for 21 days.  There are many ways for you to get involved.  Use this Prayer Guide and join us as we all read and meditate and pray together literally on the same page.  Stretch yourself to go beyond what you would normally do.  If you don’t have time MAKE TIME by cutting something out of your schedule.  If it is too early WAKE UP EARLIER so you can participate.  If you need a ride ASK SOMEONE to pick you up.  If prayer is not a priority MAKE it A PRIORITY.  When you do God will touch your heart.

Monday                                                 January 8

“Psalm 19:13 “Let the words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”


As you read the Bible each day, meditate on those words, mull them over asking God what He wants to say to you.

What if we lived every day intentionally wanting to please God with every word and every thought?

Pray for our Elders – Pastor Randy, Nancy Nelson, Gary Hanson, Jan Schiff.


Prayer Today – Noon to 1:00 at Calvary

Tuesday                                              January 9

Psalm 130:3,4
“If you, L
ord, kept a record of sins,
    Lord, who could stand?
  But with you there is forgiveness,
    so that we can, with reverence, serve you.”


Meditate on the fact that God forgives all our sins. He is incapable of forgetting anything but He chooses to never bring them up again. Is there something in your past which you are hanging on to that God may want you to release?

Pray for our Stewards – Ron Logid, Ken Bensen, Jon Holmgren, Rodney Braun, Dave Morse, Jan Schiff.


Prayer Today – 10am Join the Young at Heart group today to pray.

Tomorrow morning is 6am-7am Prayer. (Set alarm for 5am)



Wednesday                                         January 10

Lamentations 3:22-23

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”


This verse is in the context of doom and gloom for God’s people. Yet regardless of what is all around us we can have joy because God’s love and compassion and never ending faithfulness outweighs the negative.

What negative attitude do you hang on to which is robbing you of God’s joy?


Pray for our Shepherds – June Teeter, Deb Morse, Reenie Basch, Barb Wheeler, Josh and Mindy Allsop.


Prayer gathering – 6am-7am at Calvary

Thursday                                   January 11

Psalm 30:4-5
“Sing the praises of the L
ord, you his faithful people;
    praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
    but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.”


God calls us to rejoice and we do have much to rejoice over!

Write down 5 things you have because you are a child of God.

Romans 12:2 “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve of God’s will is, His good, pleasing, and perfect will.”


Where are you conforming to the world’s values, attitudes, desires? God is in the transforming business and wants to be in His assembly line. On a scale of 1-10 how willing are you to be shaped and changed by Him?


Pray for our Discoveryland team – Linda Berg, Molly Hanson, Pat Holmgren, Nancy Nelson, Deb Morse, June Teeter

Ephesians 4:22-24 “You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.”


We have 2 selves at work in us, the old and the new. Make a conscious choice to put on the new self or you will probably default to the old. Where is your greatest battle between the 2?


Pray for our sister church in Kanev, Ukraine and Pastor Nicolai.

Psalm 100:4,5
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving
    and his courts with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the L
ord is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations.


As you come to church today prepare your heart by being thankful and anticipating what God has to say to you.

Ask, “Lord what do you want to say to me today?”

Monday                              January 15

Galations 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”


How are we to put to death our old nature in order to let the new nature rule us?  It must be by the power of God’s spirit.  Sheer will power is never enough to accomplish all God intends for us.


Pray for River of Life Church and Pastor Steve Schonwald.

Colossians 3:23 “In all the work you are doing, work the best you can.

Work as if you were doing it for the Lord, not for people.” (New Century Version)


You represent Jesus wherever he has put you.  So do your work as if you were reporting to Him at the end of the day. Give Him first place as yiu begin today’s work.


Pray for Katrina and David Hasbrauch as they serve with Avant in Malaga, Spain.

James 1:2-4 “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”


What trials are you facing right now? Have you given them to God? How is He testing your faith through these situations?


Pray for Christ’s Family Church and Pastor Joe Hannah.

Thursday                                             January 18

2 Corinthians 4:18 “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”


What is the unseen that we are supposed to fix our eyes on?  Might it be the unseen, behind the scenes spiritual activity going on as God runs His kingdom?  The work of angels, the Holy Spirit intervening, protecting, giving wisdom and guidance.  What else comes to mind?


Pray for The Harbor Church and Pastor Jim Anderson.


Prayer opportunity – 6:30-8pm Evening prayer/study

Friday                                       January 19

Hebrews 11:6 “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”


Faith is taking the first step before God reveals the second step.

Where is God challenging you to take the first step in trusting Him?

Philippians 4:19 ”And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”

Is there something in your life which God as a loving father just might want to fix or heal?

Today dare to pray for the impossible.

Matthew 5:14,15 ““You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.”


As a follower of Jesus you are already on display. People are watching you, judging your actions and labeling them as ‘Christian’. Where has God called you to be His light? On a scale of 1-10 what kind of light are you?


Pray for our tech team – Rodney Braun, Bill Schiff, Dave Morse, Steve Molmen, Godswill Pepple, Gabbie Morse.

Monday                                          January 22
Matthew 5:7 “Let your light shine so that men may see your good works and glorify your father in Heaven.”


The world is full of darkness, sadness, bad news and gloom. Jesus has sent you to dispel it with His light shining through you.  Today you have many opportunities to show love and grace to both friends and strangers.  Let Jesus shine through you with every encounter God brings your way.


Pray for President Trump and his team.  Pray for wisdom to lead in God honoring ways.

Tuesday                                        January 23

2 Corinthians 5:20 “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.

We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.”


An ambassador represents his country 24 hours a day.  They live in a place which is not their real home.

What kind of ambassador are you and where do you find it difficult to remain true to your real home?


Pray for Governor Dayton.
Pray for the Minnesota Family Council as they uphold Biblical values in state government.

Wednesday                                              January 24

Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”


God asks us to call on Him.  The invitation is right out there.  What is on your heart?

God wants to hear.  He is waiting and wanting to answer you and bless you as you trust in Him.


Pray for new churched being started in Nepal and Tibet under The Timothy Initiative.

Thursday                                     January 25

James 1:22 “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.  Do what it says.  23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror  24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.  25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.”


It’s easy to listen but so hard to do.  Easy to hear I should pray more but do I pray more?

What is God’s Spirit nudging you to do in order to follow Him more closely?  Now do it!


Prayer opportunity – 6:30-8:00pm Prayer/Study

Friday                                                January 26

John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;  

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”


Abundant life!  Joyful, fulfilling, meaningful, living with purpose life is what Jesus came to give us.  Yet so often the thief robs us of that joy.  I call them joy suckers.  What are the joy suckers in your life?  Give them all to Jesus to transform them into joy givers.


Pray for Faithsearch as they help churches reach their communities with the Gospel. Don Bierlie, president.

Saturday                                       January 27

Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”


This is a promise to Israel but it is also for us. It declares an eternal truth, that God does know all about you and have a plan for you. But it is up to you to choose His agenda rather than going it alone. Ever since Adam and Eve in the garden God has given us the choice to follow Him or reject Him. On a scale of 1-10 how diligently are you following God’s agenda for your life? 1---------------------------------------------10


Pray for our church, Pastor Randy and Linda, our leaders and God’s agenda for us to reach the lost for Jesus.
