21 Days of Prayer Devotional
Day 6
Brandon McKenzie / 1 Kings


“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?


My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
