40 Days of Prayer & Fasting Journal

Hey Church!

This blog page will be where daily journal entries will be submitted. When it is your day to pray, please be sure to pray for the person who prayed yesterday and read their blog journal from their day for their prayer request. Then, add your own blog comment/entry with your own personal prayer request that tomorrow's person can pray for. This way we'll keep more closely connected as we pray.

If you have questions, call me at 407-489-1012.

Let's get to work and pray--God is on the move!

Please pray for my health I am not feeling well. Could be the flu?
I have a mountain of laundry because my
mom sent me some linen that I inherited and they were dusty from the trip on a truck and I just can't seem to get to clean them.

I havn't been able to enjoy my time
without children this week which I was looking forward to so I could just use prayer for strength to continue taking care of my family. Bless you! Eme

My day to pray is tomorrow, Thursday, July 20. As a nursing mother, I obviously can't fast from food, so I've decided to make one of the things from which I fast to be my computer--including email, Internet, looking on eBay for baby gear, writing, etc. My computer often provides me with a connection to the outside world as I stay at home with my baby, so this won't be easy. :)
So I won't be checking the blog on Thursday and will leave my prayer requests today for whoever prays on Friday.
--meaningful connection with others, esp. my husband
--interesting, motivating pursuits (especially opportunities to share my faith) as a stay-at-home mother
Thanks for praying.~~Allison

As I read the Word today, I came across this verse from Isaiah 63:19, "We have become like those over whom yu have never ruled, like those who are not called by your name." My prayer for myself and each person in our congregation is that we would recognize the Lord's rule nd that we are called by His name. Would you pray for me that I would fast from radio and music, which is very difficult since I don't have people to talk to at home. The noise keeps me from listening to God. Thank you, Apple.

The best way I can be prayed for is probably for guidance. I have some tough decisions to make and I need wisdom to know what is the right choice. I want to honor the Lord in my decisions and I hope I will. Pray that I will have strength and wisdom as I tackle these decisions. Thanks.

I've never done this blogging thing before so we'll see if it works. What a privilege to pray for Christ Kingdom Church. I'm still new, but I've been encouraged by the heart of this body of believers. I went to one of my roommates' church yesterday morning to hear one of her seminary professors. One of the things he talked about was the obstacle we have in our American churches is having such a small vision for people to come to know the Lord, rather we are content to see people transfer membership, etc. As I prayed yesterday I was convicted for my own small vision, but also prayed for us that God would give us a vision to see people come to know the love & forgiveness of Jesus Christ for the first time so they can experience a life with Him. And as Scott preached last night, may His kingdom come to rule in our hearts and lives, in our church and on this earth.
For me, you can pray for me in my job. It is a hectic time of year and since I'm fairly new in the job, it's all still a learning process. Pray that I would lean on the Lord and his strength and glorify Him as I work and am in relationships with students and my co-workers. Thanks y'all!

[I'm putting this in on behalf of Lucia. - Scott]

Scott, I wasn't able to do the boggling thing, but my prayer request is for the sale of the properties I have, because I can not afford to pay more mortgages. This is an SOS

Thank you, Lucia

Please pray that my family in California would come to know Jesus.

Please pray for me and our family as we transition to the start up of school, extra-curricular sports, church transition, and regular pressures of life. Pray for me to be alive in the Spirit and faithful in my leadership responsibilities.

Please pray for Amy. She's had many bad headaches and muscle aches in the past week or two, nearly every day. She's very busy lately and these pains slow her down. Thank you for praying.

I have missed being with yall for worship. Pray for me as I am in Germany for this class; safety in travel, for great time of reflection over the past year, for time to reflect over plans and goals for the the new year. Look forward to seeintg all of you soon!

My prayer/fasting day was today. I need to ask forgiveness that I was not faithful as we are traveling and I let the events preparing for this weekend distract me. Pray I would continue to be faithful/disciplined for the next 24 hours. Pray we arrive back to Orlando Sunday night safely. I will certainly miss seeing the first service in the new school. I especially need prayer as I will have many decisions to make over the next 6 months. Praying for what to do when Eric goes to school full time. Really, the prayer is having faith that God will provide- now, and as we go through this journey. This is one of the toughest things for us as a family. There are so many uncertainties and options and I just want to follow God's will. Pray that the Spirit will fill my heart and renew my faith and committment to Christ and God's word.
May God bless you today,

Hello Church!
It's great to make some time to pray for all of you today! I'm going to do my best to talk to Our Lord about each one of you (all good things!).
Would you also pray for me...
-Good transition in stepping out of 'leader' role in youth and moving into 'serving' role with Jason Vargas. Pray that the youth would be blessed by the new change and that my heart would be refreshed in the new role.
-Pray that I would be able to follow through on commitments that I value such as making time for my family, my bro Steven and spending quality time playing outdoors!!!
Thanks. Love you all.

Hi Church! What a privilege it is to pray for the church and all of you. Today as I am fasting, I am reminded of the sermon yesterday and how Scott said children come to Christ messy and needy. I am definitely messy and in need of prayer for my family. I am so thankful for my family and truly believe that God has given me this particular family as a mission field. They are in need of prayer for reconciliation, redemption and healing. Please pray for my dad, stepmom, stepbrother and stepsister for all of these things. Things are not good right now and keep getting worse. Through it all, I have been emotionally spent and I need prayer to be able to TRUST that God is in control. Please pray for my dad and stepmom's marriage and for my stepbrother who has just been admitted to rehab.Please pray for continued healing of my dad's heart as he is recovering from 4 bypass surgery. Pray that Brett and I would be an encouragement to them and loving in a Christlike way even though we are far away.
Thanks so much. Lauren

Please pray for my parents and sister. My mom has had a difficult time finding a congregation for years, and I think she's given up. Please ask the Lord to lead her to a healthy church that will teach her and embrace her, "messiness" and all. My sister doesn't know the Lord, but she is curious and seems ripe for his healing. Please pray that God will show her that He is true. My dad also is not yet a Christian. Please pray that God will give me boldness to be as salt and light to him, leading to his salvation. Thank you for praying for my family!
R ussell (and Amy)
