21 Days of Prayer Devotional
Day 9
Aaron Christian / Psalms 86


Teach me your way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name. I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify Your name forever. For great is Your steadfast love for me; You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol. (Psalms 86:11-13 ESV)

Thought of the day

It is important to look to God for help when we are in the midst of a trial. Aaron mentions his personal story and how this passage showed him to not only ask for help, but seek the Lord to show Him His ways and draw closer to His presence through worship.

Questions to ponder

1.) When was the last time you went through a trial? Do you feel you drew closer to the Lord during this time?

2.) What is a current trial you are going through? When is a good time to meet with God, today, and worship Him in spite of the trial?



I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
