SEPTEMBER 1

Hey friends,

I’m so happy that you decided to join the September Prayer Initiative! Each day, I’ll send you a short prayer request with a verse from the Bible to meditate on.

Our goal this month is to grow in our ability to a specific type of prayer: intercession. I’m going to speak with you as I would a friend and challenge you a bit. I look forward to growing together!

To “intercede” is defined as: “the action of intervening on behalf of another.”

Read: Exodus 33:7-11. Friend… don’t be lazy. Go get a Bible, or download the Bible app. Previous generations gave their lives for us to have the Bible, whereas we have the privilege of just walking across the room and grabbing a Bible. 🙂

This morning, ask the Lord to grow in you in your ability to intercede for others this month.

Ask Him to give you specific people to pray for.

Ask Him to build in you a desire to pray for others.

Ask Him to use this month to build an army of intercessors for Echo Church.

You can pray something like this:

“Father, thank you today for your mercy. Today, I pray that you would grow in me boldness in my prayers. I pray that you would help me in my time of need. I pray that you would help others around me who need your help, as well. I pray that you would pour out your mercy on the Bay Area. I pray that you would use our prayers, and that many people would see you as you want to be seen through our prayers.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

See you tomorrow!

With love,

Pastor Andy
