We are making prayer a priority at Turning Point by  choosing to follow Jesus’ example of intentionally spending time with God in prayer. We are doing this collectively as a church in January through 21 Days of Prayer.  This is a perfect time to create a new habit as we begin a new season of the year. Together, we will faithfully seek God first, trusting in His power alone to create a lasting impact in our lives, our church, and our world.

Along with prayer, we will be fasting for 21 days. Fasting is sacrificing something dear to you and replacing it with more of God (Bible reading, praying, worshipping, surrender & confession).  

During these 21 Days, we will be praying for our community, family, church, personal lives & salvation of the lost.  

It all begins Monday, January 11th ---Let's all go deeper in our faith together as we strive to become fully devoted followers of Jesus!

Connect with us LIVE on Facebook & YouTube every morning Monday-Friday at 8am during 21-days of prayer.  We will have a short devotional led by Pastor George & Pastor Brandon, acoustic worship & prayer! 

PRAYER GUIDE

We encourage you to use this helpful Prayer Guide to help make your time with God worthwhile and effective.  It will help you have a better understanding of what daily prayer will look like in your own life.

DAILY PRAYER THEMES

This is going to be such an exciting 21 days! Whether you feel like you’ve had a slow, difficult or sluggish start to year, or you feel like you have sprinted out of the blocks, we believe that giving yourself fully to 21 days of prayer and fasting will build momentum in your life. We believe two prerequisites to successful Christian living are vision and passion, both of which are born and maintained by prayer.

You may see things change instantly, you may not. However, be assured God is at work in you, your family and your situations. His Word says in Hebrews 11:6 that ‘He IS a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.’ So, let the seeking begin!  There is great treasure to be found.

Each day contains a prayer focus. This includes one or two Scriptures to declare and meditate on and also prayer points. Please note that the prayer points are only suggestions so feel free to pray into each area in the way the Holy Spirit leads. All we ask is that you take some time to pray each day for the theme that’s given. This way there will be lots of focused prayer about each area, bringing breakthrough both personally and corporately. The first three days are focused on ourselves and preparing our hearts for the 21 days. The remaining 18 days are packed with ideas for prayer that will bring breakthrough in others’ lives. Remember, as you’re praying for someone, someone else is praying for you!

Our desire as a church is to create a culture of prayer where we see breakthrough, miracles and God answering prayer on a daily basis. We are asking that you commit to pray three times a day for five minutes. You may pray more often than this.  This is simply a goal.  We believe that prayer is the fuel for our vision and mission!

JANUARY 11

Theme: Sacrifice

Scripture: Romans 12:1 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.”

Today is the day where we begin our fast together. Set some time aside to ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you over the next 21 days. We are believing that as you press into God and set time aside to pray and fast, that God is going to speak to you.

● For personal momentum

● Sharpness

Theme: Consecration

Scripture: Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.”

Today is the day to take a few moments to surrender your life afresh to Him and to invite the Holy Spirit to speak to you. It’s easy to go through life and collect baggage along the way and not even realize. We get hurt, disappointed, offended and discouraged at times. The Holy Spirit wants to have free run of our hearts and for us to live lightly and freely. If you have been weighed down, today is the day to bring it to God and receive the freedom He has for us.
Prayer points:
● To create in you a pure heart 

● That you will run in what God has for you 

● Strength and joy 

● Ask the Holy Spirit to show you anything you may have in your heart towards another person
● Forgive anyone you may hold anything in your heart towards

Scripture: Matthew 7:7 - “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Wow, what an invitation to us!  Ask, seek, knock. This is an open invite to come to our Heavenly Father and ask and keep on asking!  We don’t know what you are desiring from God at this time in your life which you have not yet seen the answer to, but we want to implore you, don’t give up! Sometimes we can get so discouraged by the fact God hasn’t broken through for us yet in a certain area and yet Matthew 7 tells us that God is a kind and gracious Father who desires to give good gifts to His children. 
Have a look at the list below.  What is your personal ask of God? It may be on the list; it may be something that isn’t. Whatever it is, trust that as you pray for others during these 21 days, God is working on your behalf.
