About The Event
LCMC’s Three Days of Prayer: January 3-5
There are times the Holy Spirit takes what some people have been ignoring or only engaging in by rote, breathes fresh life into it, and uses it to pull us into the current of God’s plans for our lives. An illustration of this is the ancient prayer and
practice of The Lord’s Prayer.
This year, we’re going to take that ancient prayer and practice of the Church and put it to use in LCMC’s Three Days of
Prayer. As we pray together as individuals, congregations, and as one international association, I believe the Lord is going to use what we pray in this ancient prayer to pull us into the current of the plans and purposes He has for us in the present and in the future.
LCMC’s Three Days of Prayer is January 3-5. Each congregation or person can structure these days of prayer however seemsbest. This year, I am encouraging us all to use the Lord’s Prayer as an outline to pray for our congregations and leaders, for those who don’t yet know Jesus as Savior and Lord, and for our international partners. Praying the Lord’s prayer as an outline can give form to our prayers and provide space for us to pray according to each petition for the churches or people we are focused on that day.
Pray each petition one at a time, then pause and pay attention to what comes to mind. Then pray out of those thoughts or impressions. For instance, pray “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name,” and pause. Then pray words and thoughts of thanks to God for being your Father, for His love, and for His goodness toward you. Glorify His name in prayer. Then pray the second petition, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” and pause. Think of how you would love to see God’s Kingdom life break in on those you are praying for, and then pray for them. Pray for
relationships, emotions, or bodies to be healed. Pray for someone to become aware of God’s love for them. Pray for peace in someone’s life or in a region. And so on. Continue to pray each petition one at a time, pausing to listen to thoughts, scriptures, and impressions that come to mind, and then pray for that church, that person.
No matter how you structure this time of prayer, let’s come together as an association of congregations across the U.S. and around the world to pray.
