Go Beyond At Home

28-Week Prayer Guide


One of the quickest ways to enter into a posture of prayer is by giving thanks to the Lord. Gratitude is more than just a feeling. It is speaking back to God, the truth about His character and what we have seen Him do. We can be thankful in the valleys just like we can be on the mountain tops. Throughout the New Testament letters, we read words of thankfulness and gratitude for the work of God and the people of God, and our hearts are stirred up and encouraged. I myself, thank God for you. I am so grateful that you are faithfully entering into these weeks of prayer, knowingly dependent on the giver. As we enter into this week of Gratitude, I have no doubt of the heart work that God will do and the joy that will come out of it. 

Week 7
Day 1

April 14

“I lift my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” 

— Psalm 121:1-2

REMINDER: Sometimes entering a position of gratitude can be difficult. When we are in a season of pain, suffering and grief, it can be hard to find the words to express our thankfulness. This is one reason I love the Psalms. They can begin with a cry of the heart and end with a confident declaration of who the Lord is. As we begin this week, let’s begin by lifting our eyes to the Lord.



–  Thank the Lord for being our help and one we can trust.

–  Speak to the Lord honestly about all you are feeling. Thank the Lord for his humbly coming down from heaven to die for us, as a perfect sacrifice.

–  Invite God to show you anything that might be keeping you from having a heart surrendered in gratitude. 

–  Thank the Lord that he is with us in every season and that nothing is too big or small to bring to Him.
