21 DAYS OF PRAYER

A COMPANION TO THE "A BETTER STORY" MESSAGE SERIES

DAY ELEVEN

PRAY THAT PRAYER WILL MOVE YOU

“What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do?” (James 2:14–16 NLT)
In the same way, how can we fast and pray for the gospel to be proclaimed clearly and lives to be changed, and yet not speak or act when God gives us opportunities?

PRAYER

Father, you have created us in Christ Jesus to do good works; works that you have prepared in advance for us to do. May my faith and my actions be aligned with your plans. We don’t want to be only hearers of your word, but doers also. We don’t want to be people who pray for opportunities, but people who faithfully take them. Move us to action.

As you have been praying for people you love, people you know, and the general harvest, how is God prompting you?

List the names of three people and needs they have that you and your friends could meet.
