DAY 20 — The people taught were cut to the heart with the truth. Pray that the Spirit would cut through the lies of the world and bring unbelievers to repentance.
“Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation.” So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.”
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.
