Welcome to 40 Days of Prayer: May 3 - June 11, 2022

We all have gone through a very challenging and unusual time in these last two years. The world has changed, society has changed, yet our mission remains the same – proclaiming the message of Jesus to a dying world in need of His saving righteousness.

As we approach the General Conference Session (June 5-11, 2022) we, as a world church, want to refocus on revival for mission. Ahead of us lies a wave of challenges and defining moments, as we face the reopening of the post-pandemic world, major technological breakthroughs, armed conflict, and political, and natural crises.

We must be firm in mission, and refocused on the work at hand. It is therefore vital, that we lay aside personal agendas and plans, and truly seek the converting and reviving presence of the Holy Spirit. Asking Him to do in and through us a work, which only He can accomplish, pleading for a deeper consecration, and a heart in tune with His will – both for our personal lives and families, and for our ministries.

DAILY PRAYER FOCUS

Day 28 - The Outpouring of the Holy Spirit (May 30)

On the Day of Pentecost of the year AD 31, the Holy Spirit was poured out in great measure upon the emerging New Testament church. The results? Jesus’ 120 disciples who were praying in the Upper Room were filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1, 4), people who once avoided witnessing for Jesus (Matt. 26:69-75) became bold (Acts 2:14-21; 4:7-13), and 3,000 Jewish pilgrims to Jerusalem became the first group of Christians in history—all in one day (Acts 2:38-41)...

Day 24 - The Matchless Charms of Jesus (May 26)

Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith. – Philippians 3:8-9

Day 18 - The Charge to Preach the Word (May 20)

Day 18 - The Charge to Preach the Word (May 20)

I was a high school student literature evangelist in Maine. We typically had Fridays off as personal days, but our sister program composed of older students selling more expensive books had some people who worked on Friday to make extra money. Enjoying an opportunity to spend time with the more popular crowd, I decided to tag along. I canvassed one door, trying to prove I was worth the company, while my partner tried to sell at every other door. After a few successful hours in the field, we made our way back home. That’s when I heard the legendary sermon that changed the rest of my life...

Day 17 - The Word - A Light (May 19)

He who receives the first ray of light sent him, and walks in it, bringing his actions into harmony with God's Word, will receive more light. He who walks in the light as it comes, not waiting to have every doubt removed, every mystery solved, will follow on to know the Lord. For him the light will shine brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. His path will be illuminated as he advances. God's Word will be a lamp to his feet and a light to his path. – Signs of the Times, 9/17/1902

Day 14 - The Power of the Word (May 16)

It had been a full day of teaching ministry and Jesus was exhausted. His hearers had not realized it, but the One who spoke to them that day was the Word that created all things in the beginning. Yet the power of His words could only be unleashed in the lives of those who chose to exercise faith in the Life-Giver. The Commander of Heaven’s host, now wearied from His labors, committed Himself to the care of His disciples to ferry Him to the other side of the lake. “And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship” (Mark 4:36)...

Day 11 - Smelling like an Angel (May 13)

Day 11 - Smelling like an Angel (May 13)

As I knocked on the door, a small-framed, middle-aged woman opened it slightly to greet me. I began explaining that I was going door-to-door selling Christian literature. She quickly interrupted me and asked if I could come back tomorrow. She appeared emotionally disturbed. I leaned upon my own experience and replied, “Ma’am, we don’t usually come back. So, if you’re not interested, it’s perfectly fine. We have some sample books I can offer you for about ten to twenty dollars . . .” Again, she dismissed my comment and requested I come back the next day. I acquiesced and promised to return. The door rapidly closed.

Day 4 - 40 Days of Prayer and My Brother Alan (May 6)

My older brother, Alan, was very wild as a young person, ending up separated from the Lord and church most of his life. His self-centered life eventually cost him his first marriage to divorce. His health care career had made him a lot of money, but then he lost most of it. Occasionally he tried to become more involved with the church, but his lifestyle and habits always drew him back into a life without the Lord. Our family, including our parents, all prayed for Alan for years to wholly give his life to Jesus...
