YOU are invited! Please join our Grace Chapel family and friends in seeking God through 30 days of focused daily prayer.
What is this?
-Starting Monday January 13, you will receive daily emails containing various prayers, motivations, encouragements and such.
Pray each day: at your own pace and time. 5, 10, 20, 30 minutes, an hour or more, once or multiple times per day. Simply make the time each day in a way that you can apply and achieve this commitment to “draw near to Him” and lift up the needs of others and yourself.
Balance the time: in the car going to work, with your spouse/family, alone in that “closet” away from everything. Don’t minimize or overlook the various ways we “pray without ceasing” throughout our day. Utilize as many outlets of prayer that you can. But try and get some focused time alone with God each day.
Don’t walk alone! Find a friend to pray with. The power of two or more brings multiples of power and impact.
-OPTIONAL: Fasting *Only for those physically able; this is NOT REQUIRED for the 30 Days of Prayer*
The only recommended fast I suggest is a Daniel-type fast: giving up a meal per day or certain foods per day for the duration of 30 days. PLEASE DO NOT attempt a total fast, nor a water only fast.
Fasting is a powerful way to focus attention and reliance on God, thus enhancing your prayer experience, but please use wisdom with regards to partaking in a fast, especially if fasting is new to you.
Fasting is something you will do for yourself- no one will know of nor think less if you are unable to fast. God will always meet you through your fervent prayers in a meaningful way with or without fasting.

How do I pray?
-We will pray: God First: that our relationship with God increases (keeping Him first in prayer)
-We will pray: Others before ourselves: the needs of people (family, friends, church, anyone)
-We will pray: Love for one another: our church (spur one another on: pastors/staff/ministries/missions)
-We will pray: Love your neighbor: our community (work, schools, neighbors, enemies, “every man”)
-We will pray for our nation: All Authorities: (respect and lift up government, bosses, leaders)
-We will pray for ourselves: give & receive forgiveness/emotional and bodily healing/personal needs/desires
You will also be encouraged by the daily emails. These will provide a mix of stories, verses, topics and devotionals. Your life and the lives of others will be greatly impacted.
I am looking forward to sharing this time together with you all. Thanks for your commitment!
Blessings, strength and peace,
