40 Days Prayer

This prayer captures the heart of the 40 days event. It’s a way to distill corporate discernment of God’s invitation and meaningfully connect with the many others joining this time of prayer and fasting.

Father, missions is Your concern; therefore I lay before You all my thoughts and plans. I confess the ways I trust my own efforts, my own strength, and my own design instead of Yours. I have labored much in Your name and now I come away in stillness and quietness of my soul; waiting for the good portion at Your feet. 

Jesus, show me how to focus and abide in You. Quiet me with Your love. As I gaze upon Your beauty, I long for just one more day in the goodness of your house and the holiness of Your temple. Spirit of God, Your perfect, holy wisdom is unfathomable. I trust in all Your faithful promises. Here and now, nothing is more important than worshipping You. You are worthy of it all.

Here I am, available; use me as You see fit.  Help me rest in the knowledge that You are God and You will be exalted among the nations. Jesus, your redeeming presence is the source of love and hope for the Muslim world. Incline Your ear, O Lord, as I abide in You. Holy Spirit, fill me afresh and anew.
