40/40 Prayer Vigil

Today, I want to encourage you to begin thinking about the importance of prayer in the upcoming election. We are called to pray for our leaders, even the ones we don’t agree with. As we begin to prepare for another election, I encourage you to participate in the 40/40 Prayer Vigil. This is an event put together by NAMB and ERLC. This gives you 3 options as you prepare for the election cycle. First, is 40 days of prayer from Sept. 24 to Nov. 2. Second, is 40 hours of prayer from Oct. 31, 4pm to Nov. 2, 8am. Lastly is the option of combining the first two options together. The first option is easily done as an individual, where as the second option is designed for a church to do together. They have a breakdown of what to pray for on both of these options, click photo below for prayer guide. It is very detailed and has scripture reading that goes along with what you will be doing for the day or hour. Please take this seriously. Prayer should be as much a part of our lives as eating and breathing. Commit yourselves to 40 days of prayer for yourself, your church and your nation.

    Jason,

    Thanks for commenting on this. I’m a member of CHBC and a student at SBTS (I just mention this because of some of your links). I have been working on the Prayer Guide quite a bit (I work for the ERLC in Wash DC) so if you have any feedback I’d love to hear it.

    Blessings brother.

    In Christ,
    Noah

    Noah,

    I think it is very well done. I like how it starts with personal revival, because everything really needs to start there. I also really like the added scripture on the side. Most prayer events offer little scripture and just a list of things to pray for. This is by far the most detailed, best put together prayer vigil I have seen. It also prints out nicely which is a plus.

    Thanks for your comment. My hope is that many will take this to heart. Too many times churches and people want to skip prayer and get straight to the action. We need to be reminded it all needs to start with prayer.
