At Bethlehem, we believe that prayer is a relationship with God; it is the means through which we most often praise God, confess our sins and seek forgiveness and thank Him for His gracious gifts to us. The Bible teaches us that Jesus often prayed so that He would know and then do the will of the Father. Since Jesus is our example, surely, we
should pray on a regular basis.
Starting February 3 and continuing for the next 21 days, we are asking all who will join us to pray daily using our 21 Days of Prayer prompts. You can download the entire guide here or you can join our email list by contacting the church office and we will send you a daily reminder of that day’s prayer focus. Each day in the guide has a specific topic related to our church because,” the prayer of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect.” James 5:16.
God has blessed Bethlehem this past year; I believe that He will continue to give us opportunities to share the gospel with many in our community, state, nation and the world. The prayer prompts will focus our prayers on ourselves, our church and our
mission in the world.
In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
May God bless us as we pray together for the next 21 days.
