24 Hours of Prayer

As we move out of 2021 into 2022, we want to do it honoring and seeking God. Therefore, from Noon on December 31 through Noon on January 1, we are devoting ourselves to prayer. We’re asking each person who calls Maple Grove Covenant his or her spiritual “home” to sign up for one 30-minute time block, and then to pray during that time wherever you are—you are not expected to come to church. Use the link below to reserve your time, and then watch for a detailed prayer guide which will be emailed a few days ahead of time.

24 Hours of Prayer Prompts

As we move from 2021 into 2022, please try to balance your own prayer segment along these four basic areas. Consider reflecting on both the definition of each area as well as the Scripture text associated with it. Feel free to add to the specific suggestions as God leads you.



Adoration

Showing deep respect, admiration, praise, or devotion

Praise God for the qualities of who He is: Consistent, Faithful, Gracious, Holy, Infinite, Just, Living, Merciful, Patient, Perfect, Pure, Trustworthy, Truthful


Confession

Agreeing, admitting, and taking responsibility for our own sin.


Romans 3:23— For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.


  • Reflect on how your attitudes, words, and actions are opposite of God’s—places where you are: Inconsistent, Unfaithful, Judgmental, Unjust, Unmerciful, Impatient, Impure, Untrustworthy, Deceitful
  • Reflect on how those have impacted your family, the church, your workplace or school, and your friendships.
