DAY 16 — The Lord is patient to see all people come to repentance. Pray for the people who God has been waiting patiently to see turn to Him.
2 PETER 3:8-10
“But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.”
WEEK 4 - THE LOST SHEEP
Over the next couple of weeks, we will see thousands of faces and meet hundreds of people. It is important to remember that God knows every one of these people by name, and he desires that all would come to Him. The PDX Fest, re-launch, and other opportunities are chances for these people to be introduced to the God who loves them deeply. The harvest is plentiful, and we must be prepared as laborers to reap that harvest. Pray that we would meet the people of peace. Pray for open doors and opportunities to share Jesus. Pray that God would draw all of the guests near to Him. At the heart of it, this why we are doing everything that we are doing. It is so that people would submit their lives to Jesus and become disciples who make disciples. Lift up the people you will meet to the Lord.
Pray the Scripture
First, Read the Scripture aloud and pray the exact words back to God. Second, go back through it verse by verse, and in your own words pray to God based on the words in Scripture. Third, take notes of what God revealed to you in that time.
Sometimes we may run out of words to say, or maybe you are someone that cannot stop talking to God. In either case, we need to grow comfortable with sitting and growing quiet to hear from the Lord. Remember to rest in God’s presence so that you can hear Him when he speaks to you.
In your time of prayer, write down what is you are praying for so that you can look back to see what God did. Also, write down what God is revealing to you. We like to think we will remember everything, but humans are pretty forgetful beings.
