During May, we are going to have a church-wide prayer emphasis. The Elders believe that our church needs to develop and grow in our individual and corporate prayer lives. We see, even in ourselves a lack of dependence on God, a lack of desperation to experience His presence, and a shallowness in our prayer.
As part of this emphasis, we are challenging every person connected to Genesis in any way to join us in spending at least five minutes each day in May praying. With the incredible help of Melody Buehrle (of whom I am incredibly grateful), we created this calendar designed to guide you through a 31 day prayer experience. Each day follows the acrostic:
P – Praise: Giving your love, thanks, and worship to God
R – Repent: Being honest about your sin and struggle
A – Ask: we will give you at least three issues in which you will ask God to work
Y – Yield: Following the example of Jesus in praying, “not my will, but yours be done.”
If you didn’t pick up a copy at church last week, download the PDF here. Use it in your personal prayer life, and you may find great joy by including your family in the journey. But join us, pray with us, seek God deeply with Genesis. May we find great joy in the journey. God bless.
