30 Days of Fasting & Prayer

We invite you to join us for 30 days of prayer and fasting to wrap up our “For the Sake of the NAME” Kingdom Expansion.  Think of these 30 days as a fight and a journey.  We fight in prayer together by praying each day for 5 mission critical prayer requests.  We journey in prayer together by learning from key scriptures and stories of prayer. This app will be updated each day of these 30 days. If you missed Pastor Brian’s call to prayer message on 10/21 we encourage you to listen to it here.

Here is the format we will follow: 

Imprint: A weekly memory verse.
Insight:
A daily scripture on prayer.   
Intercede: Five weekly prayer requests to labor in prayer for Kingdom expansion.
Inspiration: A daily story of prayer.


Tuesday, October 23

Imprint: (memorize this) 2 Chronicles 20:12  

“Oh our God, will You not judge them? For we are powerless before this great multitude who are coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on You.”

Insight: (reflect on this) Ephesians 6:10&18

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,

Intercede: (pray for these 5 things this week)

1)  Give us all a heart to seek You diligently and dependently in prayer over these next 30 days for the sake of Your NAME and the future fruitfulness of Woodlands church.

2)  Pour out on all of us a spirit of obedience, sacrifice and generosity so that enough money is committed to enable us to move forward with this Kingdom/building expansion initiative.

3)  Give us the courage and perseverance to always remain focused and faithful to proclaim the Living Word (Jesus) and the written word (the Bible) in the years to come.

4)  Protect us from division, disunity, apathy, sin and all the schemes of the evil one that he uses to destroy churches, so that through our church Your NAME would always be honored and glorified.

 5)  Speak clearly in these 30 days to each person that calls Woodlands church their home what part You would have each of us play in this Kingdom/building expansion, and give us the courage to obey.

Inspiration: (learn from this)  

The Christian human rights group International Justice Mission (IJM) sets a powerful example of weaving habits of prayer into their daily practices. Every staff member spends the first 30 minutes of the workday in silence—for prayer, meditation, and spiritual reflection. IJM also gathers staff for 30 minutes of daily corporate prayer, in addition to hosting quarterly offsite spiritual retreats and providing employees with an annual day for private spiritual retreat.

This commitment may seem extravagant, especially in the nonprofit sector. But IJM CEO Gary Haugen believes "prayerless striving" leads only to exhaustion. "I have learned just how crucial it is to settle my soul in the presence of Jesus every morning," said Haugen, who has worked for two decades to combat human trafficking and other forms of violence against the poor. "Even though it is tempting to hurry into our work, we intentionally still ourselves and connect with our maker: the God who delights in restoring and encouraging his children."

Intercede: Five weekly prayer requests to labor in prayer for Kingdom expansion.
Inspiration: A daily story of prayer.

Lets Begin:

Day 1 October 22nd:

Imprint: (memorize this) 2 Chronicles 20:12  “Oh our God, will You not judge them? For we are powerless before this great multitude who are coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on You.”

Insight: (reflect on this) 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 “For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.”

Intercede: (pray for these 5 things this week)

1)  Give us all a heart to seek You diligently and dependently in prayer over these next 30 days for the sake of Your NAME and the future fruitfulness of Woodlands church.

2)  Pour out on all of us a spirit of obedience, sacrifice and generosity so that enough money is committed to enable us to move forward with this Kingdom/building expansion initiative.

 5)  Speak clearly in these 30 days to each person that calls Woodlands church their home what part You would have each of us play in this Kingdom/building expansion, and give us the courage to obey.

Inspiration:(learn from this)  

“In 2010 a group of eight people from two churches felt called to the Detroit Boulevard neighborhood of Sacramento. It was known as one of the most notorious crime-ridden neighborhoods in all of Sacramento. Each house in that neighborhood was a place of danger. Nonetheless this group of eight decided to walk through the neighborhood praying over each home and praying for the presence of Christ to reign over violence, addiction, and satanic oppression. They began walking through the neighborhood, praying over each home and rebuking the demonic strongholds of addiction and violence.

One of the eight, former Sacramento police officer and gang detective Michael Xiong, reported that "each time we prayed over the houses, we felt the weight of oppression becoming lighter." A woman from one of the houses confronted them. When she discovered they were praying for the community, she asked for healing, and God healed her.

The group soon physically moved into the neighborhood and started what they called Detroit Life Church. A couple years later a local newspaper, the Sacramento Bee, reported that there were no homicides, robberies, or sex crimes, and only one assault in Detroit Boulevard between 2013 and 2014. Detroit Boulevard had been transformed by a small group of people who began their ministry in the neighborhood by praying around houses, streets, and parks for the power of Satan to be vanquished. Kingdom prayer in body is what it means to be faithfully present to his presence in the world.”

MY COMMUNITY:

Pray for your "one" - the person in your life who doesn't know Christ. Pray that they would come to know Him - that God would open a door for the gospel!

OUR CHURCH:

Would you pray for Woodlands' Ministry Directors today?

Bill Horvath - Executive Director of Operations
Laurie Koerten - Director of HR & Finances
Rick Satterthwaite - Director of Technical Arts
Jami Wilhelm - Director of Woodlands Kids Volunteers
Barry Moodie - Director of Building and Grounds & IT
Lindsey Nelson - Director of Communications
Jaime Sherf - Director of Programming & Events in Student Ministries
Whitney Swenson - Director of Church Management System / Global Outreach & Executive Admin

OUR WORLD:

Let's pray for the kids of our missionaries.  Here's a glimpse into what it sometimes looks like to be a missionary kid (MK):

            MK's are living in a place their parents feel God has called them to live - the MK may not feel called at all.  They have two countries as "home", but really don't feel at home in either.   Friends come and go on a regular basis.   School situations are always challenging.  

Let's lift up the faith of these kids as they walk through challenges you and I may never experience.  Pray for their walk with God, that it would deepen and sweeten, that they would find joy in this season of serving the Lord, that they would be empowered by God's Spirit and would find confidence in God's Word. 

OUR FOCUS:

Let’s continue to pray for the third great purpose of the Church: to reach the world. Pray that Woodlands would always remain a church that is committed to reaching the world both locally and globally. And that each of us would live with the mindset to “go”. Pray that through this building expansion process we would be able to reach many more people in our community and around the world for Christ.

    his understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the faint,
    and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 Even youths shall faint and be weary,
    and young men shall fall exhausted;
31 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
    they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
    they shall walk and not faint.

OUR WORLD:

The missionaries we are praying over today we cannot actually name, so let’s call them J & K. They are serving God through a ministry that strives to give everyone in the world the chance to hear about Jesus in their heart language through a film. They are leading teams into very dangerous and dark areas of the globe. They ask that we pray 1 Kings 3:9 and James 1:5-6 for them as they desperately seek God’s wisdom as they lead their ministry teams and family.

Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.

OUR FOCUS:

This week we learned about the importance of building the church community, because Jesus said "I will build my Church." Pray that Woodlands would always remain a healthy church community that practices Biblical love and faithfully cares for its members.

Pray that God would use His Word in this series, “For the Sake of the NAME” to deepen our devotion to Him, clarify our understanding of His purposes for us, and to empower us to take the next steps of Christ-centered obedience, for the sake of the Name!

  • Also, pray for your own heart and mind to be ready for worship this Sunday and pray the same for others!

OUR WORLD:

Would you pray for Randy and Debbie today? Randy and Debbie’s mission is to train and equip laborers to more lovingly and effectively bring the Good News of Jesus and His Kingdom to and among Muslims!
They have a trip and conference coming up at the end of this week and in mid October, respectively.

  • For their trip where they will minister to and alongside their friends, please pray that they would mutually encourage and equip each other to love Jesus and serve Him.

  • For the conference, may this conference give all attending a greater love and ability to share Jesus with the Muslims in their lives.

OUR FOCUS:

We are sending a medical team to Jalapa, Guatemala this January. Our medical mission team is in the process of forming right now and we’re asking that you pray as this process continues. Pray that God’s hand would be evident in the asking and application process, that He would grant the leaders wisdom in forming just the team He had in mind to fulfill His purposes in Jalapa this January? Pray for unity under the headship of Christ and His purposes as this team forms.

OUR CHURCH:

Tonight, let’s pray for the 10th - 12th grade students who will be at Woodlands for the 3rd night of youth group. Will you pray for the Holy Spirit to work in their hearts and minds to grow them in Christlikeness with a desire to obey and follow Him in all they do!

OUR WORLD:

Today let’s pray for Jerry and Diana. Through their ministry and friendships in an Asian country, they offer a glimpse into what it means to have hope in the midst of struggle. Jerry and Diana end their last newsletter with these words, “We wonder what He has in store for this little one and the rest of us? What a remarkable journey!!” Praise God for the way He is working through Jerry and Diana to reach into their colleagues and now friends lives with the hope of the Gospel. Praise God, too, for the way He is working in Jerry and Diana to wonder with great hope. May we all look to Him in wonder and eager anticipation, no matter our season.

OUR FOCUS:

Today, let’s remember the men who attended Men’s Retreat. Let’s pray that the lessons they learned are ones they can translate into their day to day lives. Pray that the men {and women} of Woodlands Church would earnestly seek Him and desire to live for the Sake of the NAME.
