A Few Suggestions



Spending an Hour in Prayer with God


The following are some suggestions that might help as you prepare to spend an hour in prayer with the Lord. You are committing to one hour a week for 52-weeks. These resources will be useful but don’t be tied to them. Use them as the Spirit leads you.


Bring your Bible, a pen and notepad and an open heart to your prayer time. Remember: prayer is a two-way conversation. You do not need to talk to God constantly for an hour. Pauses and quietness is part of prayer. Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still and know that I am God” Write down your thoughts as well as anything you hear form the Lord. He may lead you to share some of the things He shows you with others. Most of all enjoy your time with God!


• Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you pray. “We do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us...” Romans 8:26
• You might begin with a time of praise and worship. You might consider listening to some praise music that exalts the Lord. Here are some scripture passages to consider reading as well: Psalm 19, 24, 27, 46.
• Consider a time of personal repentance, Read “Personal Repentance” and repent of any sin God brings to light. This allows us to have “boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus” (Hebrews 10:19), and pray with confidence. Personal repentance is praying for revival and saying, “Let it begin in me.”


• A Covenant of Prayer for Revival and Spiritual Awakening lists12 topics for prayer that touch the heart issues of personal and corporate revival which is our primary focus during this year of around the clock prayer. Revival in the church will lead to a spiritual awakening in our communities where many will be brought into the kingdom through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
