Week #1 Prayer Guide
Week #2 Prayer Guide
Week #3 Prayer Guide
It is impossible to genuinely encounter Christ and walk away unchanged. Ask Paul, Mary Magdalene, Matthew, Zacchaeus, the woman with the issue of blood, Nicodemus, blind Bartimaeus—the list could go on and on of people whose lives were transformed by an encounter with Christ.
For the past seven years, the global family of the Church of God of Prophecy has been called to start the New Year with a season of prayer and fasting. We recognize that prayer is our first core value and the foundation for all our ministry efforts. The annual twenty-one days of prayer and fasting is just one way that we walk out this core value in a very important way.
Once again this year, we are calling on our churches and members to mobilize their efforts and join us in a concentrated time, seeking God’s direction for our ministries locally, nationally, and globally.
We are seeking God for a divine encounter through prayer. We are asking Him to continue to bring breakthrough in our lives, homes, churches, and nations.
For twenty-one days, beginning January fifth, we will unite around specific daily prayer directives. These prayer directives will be available through our downloadable resources and on our social media. We will be inviting our leaders to share additional prayer points and insights throughout the weeks to help insure our prayers are touching the most current needs.
On January fourteenth, the International Offices will be inviting viewers to join their annual Night of Prayer live via simulcast. During this time, viewers will be able to submit requests that will be prayed over by those in the prayer meeting, as well as those watching online.
Additional information about these resources and the simulcast event are available online at cogop.org.
After an encounter with the resurrected Christ, the two disciples on the road to Emmaus asked each other, “Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way…?” As we unite together in prayer, it is my hope the Father will be pleased with us, that He will speak to us, and our hearts will be set ablaze with a passion for Him that will carry us throughout the entire New Year.
Thank you for your plans and efforts to join us. I believe even greater things are ahead for the Church of God of Prophecy, but they will only be obtained through prayer and fasting.
