As we begin our October of Prayer, you’ll find below how you can join with the congregation in praying this week. The first week of October we are focusing on intercessory prayer, specifically, praying with passion. Passionate, intercessory prayer is a bit like wrestling – we grab onto the Lord, we hold tightly to the Lord, and we push and pull at him with our petitions. For an invitation to pray like this, hear Jesus’ own words in Luke 18:1-8. For an example, read Daniel 9. Since the Holy Spirit uses us praying with passion to lead us to live with passion, I invite you to grab onto the Father in passionate, intercessory prayer this week.
