DAY EIGHT: FOR SALVATION AND A GREAT HARVEST
“May God be gracious to us and bless us; look on us with favor, so that your way may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.” (PSALM 67: 1)
ADORATION: YOU ARE THE GOD WHO SAVES
“For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift—not from works, so that no one can boast.” (EPHESIANS 2: 8-9)
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (JOHN 3: 16)
“If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation.” (ROMANS 10:9-10)
“I will bless you and you shall be a blessing. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (GENESIS 12: 2-3)
We are blessed to be a blessing. We repent of our selfish hearts that seek only to be ‘blessed’ instead of ‘being a blessing’.
We repent of missing our call of making the Gospel all about saving others, by making the Gospel all about saving me instead.
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation…” (ISAIAH 52:7)
Father, fill us with compassion for the lost. Replace our self-centered agendas with Your self-giving sacrificial love. May we see each personal need through Your eyes.
We pray for a great harvest of lost souls. Do a supernatural work of preparation in their hearts to receive You. Fill our hearts with Boldness to share and declare who You are.
• What are some hindrances you feel to sharing your faith?
• What is the boldest you have ever been for Christ? Why were you so bold in that situation?
40 Day Prayer for Our Nation: Day Three 09/26/2020 On Day three, of the 40-day of prayer for our nation, we join with thousands in person in Washington DC, those via simulcast, around the nation and around the world in for repentance and prayer for the sins of the nation and all peoples. God is gracious and desires to forgive by the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. We must present ourselves to Him in faith and humility, receiving the work of the cross.
