On the week of November 12-16, 2012, Grace Church will pray and fast to seek the Lord for a greater experience of His Holy Spirit in our lives and our church. Today’s Theme: Repentance & Forgiveness.
Confess your known sins to God and admit where you have either grieved, stifled, or quenched His Holy Spirit. Receive His forgiveness and cleansing of all your unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). Thank Him for restoring you into harmony with Him. Ask Him to strengthen you to turn from your sin, to grant you the gift of a deep and true repentance, as well as His deliverance and healing from strongholds and wounds that lead you to repeat sins like this.
CHURCH WIDE PRAYER:
Ask God to reveal to us areas of ministry where we’ve neglected Him or have been complacent in. Ask God’s forgiveness for areas where we’ve demonstrated a lack of faith or passion. Ask God to forgive us as a nation in the many areas where we have sinned, (and continue to sin) against Him. Ask God to turn our hearts back to Him and awaken the complacent church to live out its true calling.
