MONDAYEVANGELISTIC PRAYER Chronological Bible Reading: Exodus 16-18; Matthew 17 Monday, January 27 Matt. 20:8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. Oh Lord of the Vineyard: You are such a good paymaster because you pay your servants while they work as well as when they finish. I ask you to help me draw others to you so they can get the same payments I have for working in your vineyard. ! I have been paid with a clear conscience Let me testify faithfully about Jesus even to __________ this week. I want to free my conscience of their blood, by warning them of hell and witnessing about the gospel. ! I have been paid with consolation in service Let me place jewels in Jesus crown, come what may. Let me make him know that the travail of his soul was worth something, because I have endured suffering and pain to see others, like __________ get saved. ! I have been paid by being able to watch conviction first bud in a soul Let me pray today for __________, who is tender of heart. Lord, work within! Give me the joy of hope in seeing them saved. ! I have been paid with the joy of true success This satisfaction, overwhelming as it is, is a hungry thingI long for more! Make me a soulwinner, because with every soul I can bring to Jesus I get a new heaven on earth. Make me experience the same joy Christ has over seeing one lost sinner come home, and take part in the reward for toiling with Jesus, and completing that which is lacking in his sufferings to reach the lost. Let me sow with him, so I can reap by his Spirit. This I ask, Jesusaccording to your will, in your name, and by your power. Amen. A DAILY PATTERN FOR PRAYER & BIBLE READING Chronological Bible Reading: Exodus 25-27; Matthew 20 Thursday, January 30 Mark 6:34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things. TUESDAYFOCUS ON CHRISTS MIRACLES Chronological Bible Reading: Exodus 19-21; Matthew 18 Tuesday, January 28 Luke 17:17-18 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. Merciful Savior: What sights you see as you look at our sin-diseased world! The sad thing about it is, we never recognize nine-tenths of your merciful response to our plight. Oh, give me the frankincense of gratitude. Let my life-reactions distill into dew-drops of praise. Do not allow me to become dry in thankfulness to you. One day in seven is devoted to your worship, but not one person in ten is really devoted to your praise. How is that, Lord? There are many more who receive benefits than ever give you thanks for them. Shame on us! Life, health, eyesight, hearing, love, friendship, relationshipsand yet, is there one time in ten I praise you for these? Lam. 3:22-23 It is of the LORDS mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. I confess I do not praise you Lord, either fitly, proportionately, or intensely enough. I receive a continual stream of mercies and yet can only whine about my inconveniences! The number of my prayers is far greater than the number of times when I really praise. Why do I wait for a miracle to praise you? One would think every time I pray I would also praise, but it is not so. I should begin with adoration. But my requests are often so petty and selfish. I pray when I think Im about to die, but then you deliver me and my praise dies instead! Prayer is for time, but praise is for eternity. I know I need both, but praise really deserves the highest and best place. Prayer is for the beggar I feel like I am, but praise is for the Kings kid I know I am. Help my praise follow naturally on the heels of my prayer. Do it because Jesus is worthy. Amen. FRIDAY CORPORATE PRAYER MINISTRY Chronological Bible Reading: Exodus 28-30; Matthew 21:1-23 Friday, January 31 Rev. 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. Heavenly King and Great God: We bless you, because the outcome of the battle between yourself and all the powers of darkness has never been uncertain. We praise your name that from this moment it is sure to end in victory, even in our own lives! Our hearts, in the middle of the struggles of the present day, look back to the conflict on Calvary, and see how the Lord there broke the head of the serpent forever. Hallelujah! Lord, help us recognize we are contending with a vanquished enemythe regime is replaced. Help us understand we go out to fight against one who, even with all his subtlety and strength, has already been overthrown by our Captain, our Leader, our Husband, Jesus. Lord, there are those who are depressed in our congregation because they feel like the serpent is nipping at their heels. Help them praise the name of Jesus, whose heel was bruised before theirs, as he broke the serpents head. Our souls and songs of inward joy extol him as our Conqueror. Especially at the commencement of this, our breakout year, all honor and glory go to the Christ who stood toe-to-toe with the enemy and made him tap out. Help our spirits triumph just in anticipation of the time when all our enemies are destroyed, and even death and hell are cast into the lake of fire, and God is our all in all. Oh that today you might return! Help us be prepared to come out of all this in the glory with which your love always arrays us. Glory, honor, majesty, power, dominion, might and all praise unto Jesus who sits on the throne. Let him rule and reign in our midst until the King comes! Amen. WEDNESDAYREVIVAL PRAYING Chronological Bible Reading: Exodus 22-24; Matthew 19 Wednesday, January 29 Gal. 5:7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? My Lord Jesus: Revival is your quickening visitation of your people, touching our hearts and deepening your work of grace in our lives. In revival you make your presence known among us. In revival you reveal yourself as holy God. You throw my sin up on the screen. Give me a special urgency for revival! Help me take the proper action, because Ive lost my first love. Ive slowed my pace in the race. Psa. 42:1 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. If I am not living in the light of your love, then the next best thing is to be unhappy until I have it, and pant hourly after it. When it is as natural for me to long after you as for an animal to thirst, then it is well with my soul (no matter how depressed my feelings!). There are special promises to those who pant. Psa. 42:3 My tears have been my meat day and night, Salty meat, but healthy to my soul. Psa. 42:4 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: Why do I dwell on depressing ideas and let them consume me? The result is certainly of no value. For me to turn my soul on itselfto keep emptying it from itself into itself as I dwell on hurts of the pastis useless. How much better for me to pour out my heart before you! Psa. 42:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? Thats some good self talk! Hope carries stars in her tears. Help me use such heroic language in my own gloomy hours. Give me the depth and breadth of spirit to totally trust you in the hardest, very hardest times I could ever go through. Revive me and turn my life into a song for Jesus sake. Amen. SATURDAYIN THE PSALMS Chronological Bible Reading: Exodus 31-33; Matthew 21:24-46 Saturday, February 1 Psa. 84:2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God. Oh, Living God! Earth affords no sight so refreshing as the gathering of believers to worship the Lord. Only weak Christians are uncomfortable at the services of our church. For as the psalmist says, his soul longs for, pines, and even faints to meet the saints in the courts of your house. Make my own desire deep and insatiable, my own soul yearning for God. I look forward to Sunday, to stand once again in those areas dedicated to your adoration. That is the longing of my heart! If I am a real subject of the King, then I will love his courts. I cannot remain silent in my desires; I cry out for you Lord, and your houseeven like the sons of Korah who wept, and sighed, and pleaded for that privilege. Some people have to be whipped to get them into church, but I cry for it. Give me a holy appetite for worship and fellowship. Psa. 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them. The blessings of worship do not belong to half-hearted, listless worshipers. They belong to those who throw their whole energy into it. Neither prayer, nor praise, nor the preaching of the word are profitable to people who have left their hearts at home (or in the world!). It is those who love the ways of God who are blessed. I pray to be one of those! Make me so, as your Spirit moves on me inwardly. Put your ways into my heart and my heart into your ways, and thereby make me what and where I should be. When sorrowing, or going through any other valley, give me sweet comfort in communion with my brothers and sisters in Christ. Amen.

BE of good courage God spoke unto Joshua

When oer the river God pointed the way Jordan uncrossable, things seemed impossible Waters divide as they march and obey Battles to win they would meet with their obstacles Jerichos walls too, must fall to the ground God never failed He stood back of his promises Walls had to crumble as they marched around God is the same and His Word is dependable Hell make a way through the waters for you Lifes situations by Him are amendable Mountains and hills He will part for you too Got any rivers you think are uncrossable? Got any mountains you cant tunnel through? God specializes in things thought impossible And does the things that others cannot do. Oscar C. Eliason, 1945

GIVE GOD THE FIRST PART OF EVERY DAY. The first commitment is to a daily quiet time with God. Our weekly Prayer Diary provides a template for daily devotions. 2) TITHEWORK 1 Cor 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. GIVE GOD THE FIRST DIME OF EVERY DOLLARno questions asked. Ten percent is a miniscule amount in our affluent society, but it must come off the top in order to show that God is our priority. We want the blessing of the firstfruits (first devotion, first dime and first day) to flow out to the rest of our resources. 3) TEAMWORD Heb 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. GIVE GOD THE FIRST DAY OF EVERY WEEK. You should fellowship with a group of believers around the word of God every Sunday in our church.


Baptists tend to ridicule liturgical churches that use "prepared prayers" because they lack spontaneity. But for many Baptists, their prayers are so predictable they are no more spontaneous than written-out prayers. The result is we end up praying the same things over and over. This daily Prayer Diary will prompt you on a wide range of prayer requests you might not normally think of, while forcing you to articulate a deeper devotion to God. We have included a daily Bible reading schedule. This plan will take you through the Bible chronologically in a year. Do not read ahead and do not try to catch up. Use each day as it comes. Then you can know that on any given day, dozens of other people are lifting their hearts in the same mind to God. Pray what is written, but use what is prayed as a springboard for your own relationship with God. You learn to pray by praying. Alan

Secret prayer is the secret of prayer, the soul of prayer, the seal of prayer, the strength of prayer. If you do not pray alone you do not pray at all. Our Lord Jesus Christ would go nowhere till He had prayed. He would attempt nothing till He had prayed. Oh, says one, I live in the spirit of prayer, and therefore I do not need times and seasons for prayer. And do you think that Christ did not live in the spirit of prayer? Yet He had to have his special time and place to pray. Do not fall under the injurious notion that because your spirit cries to God in prayer all day long, therefore there must not be some season for more immediately coming into Gods presence. If you imagine this, I am afraid that it will prove a snare to your feet. The Lord Jesus Christ, who knew better than you do that the main thing is the spirit of prayer rather than the act of prayer, yet Himself retired into desert places to maintain the act and exercise of prayer. Be spiritual. Be baptized into the spirit of prayer. But do not be deceived by the enemy, who can steal a spirit away while we dream that we only spiritualize it. We had better preserve the very bones of prayerthe posture, the time, placerather than let it all ooze away into an impalpable mental condition. God keep us prayerful. He will do so if He makes us like His dear Son. Charles H. Spurgeon, 1834-92
