Daily Prayer Rhythm
The starting point for all significant works of God is prayer. It is here that we have an opportunity to interact with the Spirit of God and participate in the redemption of our city and the healing in our lives.
In the Hebrew and early Christian tradition there has always been a daily prayer rhythm to pause and pray – morning, midday, and evening. We see this in the life of Jesus and with the apostles in the early church. We want to recover this historic practice.
Partner with us by praying this rhythm each day wherever you are.
Each morning we want to begin the day with the Lord’s Prayer. When we pray The Lord’s Prayer, we are submit to the leadership of Jesus, allowing his prayers to guide our prayers.
Each midday we want to create time to pray for the lost and the broken. Ask the Spirit to bring to mind people who are far from God, and ask God to ask the Spirit to show you where you can join God in the renewal of all things.
Each evening we want to end our day with reflection, repentance, and gratitude to God. As you review your day, from morning to evening, give thanks to God for anything and everything for which you are grateful.
Below are some helpful resources that leaders in our church use during their daily prayer rhythm.
