40 Days of Prayer
Through weekend services, small group studies, and daily devotionals, our entire church family will unite and focus on the spiritual theme of prayer for the course of this campaign. This concentrated time of alignment will bear lasting, eternal fruit in all levels of our church. The Power of Alignment is best seen in the three major components of the campaign:
1. INDIVIDUAL PARTICIPATION
Individuals are the heart of the campaign. Every day, each person will complete a short prayer prompt. This practice will challenge the participant to reflect on the themes of this campaign and apply the learning to their lives. These prayer prompts are part of the 40 Days of Prayer Workbook.
2. GROUP PARTICIPATION
A powerful element of the campaign is encouraging people to experience true biblical community through ABF. The interactive curriculum includes a six-week Bible study taught on video by Pastor Rick Warren, followed by a guided discussion time where group members engage and apply the principles they are learning to their lives. Pastor Jeff will be offering a Sunday evening group in Room F202 for adults who volunteer on Sunday mornings and are not able to be in an ABF.
3. WEEKEND SERVICE PARTICIPATION
Each weekend of the campaign, Pastor Jeff will unpack the campaign’s themes for our entire congregation through sermons focused on the subject of prayer.
