Go Beyond At Home

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. 

Week 3
Day 5

March 21

“The God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, strengthen, and support you after you have suffered a little while. To him be dominion forever. Amen.

— 1 Peter 5:10-11

REMINDER: Suffering is painful and difficult, but knowing that God will personally restore us, establish us, strengthen us, and support us after the suffering- and that His grace will be with us in the suffering – completely changes the way we walk through sufferingsOur God is faithful, loving, all-powerful, and will bring glory out of our sufferings. 


–  Consider ways that you may be suffering (physically, emotionally, spiritually, relationally, through various losses, trials) and read 1 Peter 5:10-11 (above) again but this time slowly – perhaps a few times. Allow God to speak to your heart through His promise to you. 

–  Is there something specific that you are praying and fasting about that is causing you to suffer? Ask God to comfort you and to remind you often of His promise to restore, establish, strengthen, and support you. 

Ask God to help you and the people at Kingsland to see our sufferings as temporary and to keep our eyes fixed on God and His eternal Kingdom.
