28-Week Prayer Guide

Church Family, 

Thank you to the many who have joined me on the journey of 28 weeks of prayer as we seek to “Go Beyond at Home” here at Kingsland. If you’re just getting started, that’s okay! I’m honored that you’ve joined us. Pastor Eric Conley and I preached this past Sunday on dependent prayer and fasting. The very act of prayer is one of dependence, and effective prayers are those in which we acknowledge the majesty and power of God alongside our own need for Him to move.  

Adult Discipleship Minister and Prayer Coordinator Susan Sowell has been gracious to write our prayers for this week. Thank you, Susan! Let’s look to God as we acknowledge our dependence on Him.

NOTE: You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:13) 

Prayer and Fasting is an invitation from God to seek Him more deeply. But what if we don’t have a desire to seek God through prayer and fasting? What if we don’t feel close to God and the idea of prayer and fasting feels like a difficult task? There is great news for those of us who need help with prayer and fasting. God is passionate for us to know Him and walk in an intimate relationship with Him, so He will give us a desire to seek Him through prayer and fasting. We simply need to ask Him to help us seek Him with all our heart and give us a desire to know Him more deeply. God will do a powerful work in our hearts as we continually respond to His invitation to seek Him through prayer and fasting. He will work in our hearts in ways that will transform us and our homes, because we will experience a deeper, more intimate relationship with Him.

“Be sober-minded, be alert. Your adversary the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour.

— 1 Peter 5:8

REMINDER: God does not tell us to be afraid or to exalt the enemy, instead He tells us to be sober-minded and alert. This is the opposite of being unaware, ignoring, or being passive to the enemy’s attack on our hearts and homes. As we seek God through prayer and fasting, we need to be sober-minded and alert to the enemy’s plan to devour us. We especially need to be sober-minded and alert to how the enemy attacks our prayer life with God, as prayer is how we fight spiritual battles and receive from our Father which greatly impacts God’s Kingdom. 


–  What are some of the victories God has given you in spiritual battles you’ve had in your life?  Spend some time thanking God for those victories and His faithfulness in your life. 

–  Prayer and fasting are powerful weapons in fighting spiritual battles.  Are you currently fighting a spiritual battle that seems impossible to overcome?  If so, ask God to help you trust Him. Ask a trusted friend to pray for you. You are not alone and do not have to battle alone. 

–  Ask God to open your eyes to ways the enemy works in your life through lies, distractions, temptations, pain, brokenness, business etc.). For us to be sober-minded and alert we need to be aware of the battle. 

–  Ask God to teach you to pray and stand firm in your faith in Him.
