SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY- 1 KINGS 18:44
“The seventh time the servant reported, ‘A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.'” (1 Kings 18:44 NIV)
Thought of the day
The entire destiny of a nation shifted because of one man’s tenacious prayer life. Elijah could have stopped on the fifth or sixth prayer, but he persisted until he broke through. It rained a heavy downpour, ending a brutal drought in Israel. Don’t stop praying! Other people are depending on your persistence in prayer!
Questions to ponder
-What are some things that you have given up praying for that God actually wants you to keep praying for?
-What time, today, will you get before the Lord and pray for breakthrough in those areas?
-Who around you might experience breakthrough when you experience breakthrough?
“Getting to be a part of Take the City was such a blessing both in seeing how God moved in the lives of the people I met as well as how he moved in my heart. I was so encouraged to be surrounded by people willing to passionately pray for their city and the people in it. As we worshipped, people would stop and ask what was going on and we got to talk and pray with them. I felt a greater desire to pray for our nation grow in me as we sang and prayed together.”
