Dear Alliance family,
Welcome to 40 Days of Prayer! This prayer guide features daily devotionals and prayer prompts that are designed to lead you into the presence of God, to cry out to Him in prayer, and to listen for His still, small voice. It’s not enough to hear about prayer, read about it, or even just learn about it. During these 40 days at the beginning of 2022, we need to engage in prayer—to perhaps do so with a frequency, fervency, and focus that is not normal for us. This year’s theme is Reawakening to Christ. The aim of this 40-day focus is to fix our gaze on Jesus: remember who He is, what He has done, what He has given us to do, and what He will do in the future.
Look around at all that is happening in our nation and world. It is time to pray and to surrender to Jesus! Could it be that this 40 Days of Prayer could change us, change our prayer lives, change The Alliance, and even transform our nation and world? Let’s step into this prayer experience with the anticipation that we will encounter the living God and fix our eyes upon Him. Let’s pray with a spirit of expectancy that the Spirit of God will do great things in, among, and through us to the glory of Jesus Christ.
Keep the faith!
