How do you view prayer? Is it a second alternative when ‘I can’t do it myself’? Is it an appendix to the plans you have already made? God sees prayer differently. Prayer is the direction and power for all the Kingdom work that we do. The more we have to do, the more time we should spend in prayer. We may serve God by doing good things, but if they are done in our power, on our timetable, or according to our plan, they will not be eternal. Scripture says those works will be burned up.
Day 27 – Will you pray for our Strategic Planning in January?
Now is the time to be praying for the direction of our church. Ask God to prepare our hearts, guide our planning, and empower our plans for His glory. Let’s not wait until we have made our decisions and then ask God to bless our plans. Proverbs 21:31 says, “The horse is prepared for the day of battle, But victory belongs to the Lord.”
