Summit Prayer

21 Days of Fasting & Prayer

Jesus said we’re to be known as a house of prayer. Are we?

As we turn the corner and begin a new year, our dependence on God seems as obvious as ever. In new ways, we feel the reality of Jesus’ words “… apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5 ESV) We as a church, and as individuals, can do nothing apart from God’s work.

For that reason, we want to start the year by having our church family come together for 21 days of fasting and prayer. Our hope is for this experience to anchor us to our purpose as the people of God at The Summit Church.

Today's Prayer Prompt

January 26

Read 1 Peter 4:9–11

9Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.”

Pray

Pray that God would lead us to be faithful stewards of all that he has entrusted to us. Ask God to show you how to use the grace and gifts he has given you to advance his kingdom and bring praise to Jesus. Pray for strength and joy to serve and love others. Pray that missionaries and church planters around the world would not grow weary in well-doing, but would faithfully serve the body of Christ and their communities.
