7 Days of Prep Prayer for Servant Leadership Retreat 2018

We are 7 days away from our Servant Leadership Retreat. So we will begin praying Biblical prayers with our 7 Days of Prep Prayer. Special thanks to Gary Seay with helping me put these together.

Today’s prayer focus will be on all those that are going to be at the retreat. If we could see in the future, it will be more than just those that are registered so far. There may be some that are just needing a personal invitation and encouragement from you to get them to go. So please begin praying for who you need to reach out to and challenge them to be with us. (Below are links to the 4 promo videos, flyers and event page to share with others.)

Feel free to forward these prayer emails (or have me add) any of your prayer warriors that may not be able to join us for the retreat but would like to pray along with us.

Group leaders – Please send me emails of anyone that is also coming from your group or church so I can add them to this prayer email list or just forward them on yourself each day.

Fasting – if you feel led, some will be fasting a meal or one day the week before in preparation. This is obviously not just skipping a meal(s) but that extra time spent seeking God. Please study Isaiah 58 for fasting that pleases God. Another option esp. for those who have struggled with eating disorders is to fast from something else for at least 30 min. that day, like the tv or internet and use that time pursing God.

Let’s do all we can to expect and prepare for what all God has for us.

For His glory,

Jason & Heidi

Day #1 of 7 Days of Prep Prayer

 

Hebrews 10:22a, encourages us to “let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings…”

 

As we begin to prepare ourselves for this Servant Leadership Retreat, we want to really draw near to God like we never have. Before this retreat was conceived in the heart of man, we believe it’s been a part of God’s heart and one of the many ways He wants to minister to His people. He has great plans for all of us and we want to pray that everyone that’s supposed to there will respond to God drawing them.

 

Let’s pray this together…

God, we know You have awesome plans for this retreat. For those that haven’t been invited or decided yet, we ask that You would draw them in by Your Holy Spirit. We ask that all those that are supposed to be there, will make it regardless of the obstacles.

Please prepare our hearts to receive all that You have for us. Heavenly Father, we are grateful that You are bringing us all together for Your glory.

We pray all this is in Jesus name.

Day #2 of 7 Days of Prep Prayer 

Isaiah 57:14 “Build up, build up, prepare the road! Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people.”

Life can get too busy. Sometimes the stuff of earth seems to get in the way of us receiving what God has for us. If you’re still struggling about making it or know someone that is, please ask God for help. He is our provider. He is able to provide the finances, the time and all that is needed. He is able to guide and direct. He is able to before us to remove any obstacles. He is able to clear the path Himself. Be asking God if there are still others you need to encourage to not miss this retreat.

Praying this in unity…

God, we know that nothing can stand against You. When You speak mountains move and oceans part. So we’re asking again that You please remove any obstacles that’s trying to keep anyone from coming to the retreat. We ask that all the finances would come in. We pray everyone would be in good health. Please help all work and personal schedules to work out, we’re believing that You make everyone’s path clear.

We love You and thank You, Father.

Day #3 of 7 – God’s Word being shared

Isaiah 55:10-11

“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”

God’s Word cannot fail. Every word He speaks has eternal power. He has prepared powerful things to say to His people. We want our hearts be good soil that when the Word goes out, it finds good soil and produces much fruit.

Let’s pray this together…

Father God, we thank You so much for Your Word. We ask that as we come together this weekend that Your truth would be proclaimed with authority and clarity from person sharing. We ask that You open the hearts and the minds of each of us who will hear it, that as truth is spoken it finds good soil. Thank You, God, that Your Word never returns void but always accomplishes the purpose for which You sent it.

We pray all this in Jesus name.

Day #4 of 7 – Ministry times and prophetic words

Psalm 68:35 “You, God, are awesome in Your sanctuary; the God of Israel gives power and strength to His people. Praise be to God!”

God is gracious and kind. He can speak to an entire people of group and to each one there individually. He comes to heal, restore, revive. He speaks life. The same God who spoke the world into being still speaks to His sons and daughters today.

Praying in unity…

God, we thank You that still speak to Your people. You still move and are still doing miracles. At the retreat, we ask God that during the ministry times and the prophetic times that You would do what only You can do. Speak clearly to us. Prepare each of our hearts to receive all that You have. Minister to Your people.

Heavenly Father, You’re so powerful and mighty, yet so good and kind that You allow us to become close to You. We trust that You know exactly what needs to be spoken. Thank You for the strength & powerful words You will give us this weekend.

In Jesus name we pray.

Day #5 of 7 – Retreat Worship Times

Psalm 100:2, “Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.”

Our Heavenly Father delights in the praises of His people. He has promised to dwell in our praises. Worship is not merely something we do, it is an expression of who we are. We are His people. He is our God. He is worthy of all the praise. Let’s pray that the worship times are truly transforming and we really encounter God’s presence.

Let’s pray this together…
God, You alone are worthy. There is none like You. We thank You for tearing the veil (Matthew 27:51) so that we can enter into Your throne room. We can now enter boldly knowing You are there and have amazing grace for us. We ask that as we gather together this weekend to worship that You would use Heidi and the rest of the worship band to lead us into Your throne room and You would meet us in a powerful way. We know when are You are lifted up You will draw all people. Help us to be more and more aware of what a privilege it is to worship in Your presence.

It’s in Jesus name we pray.

Day #6 of 7 – Our hearts to be prepared

Ephesians 1:18, “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people”

God has tremendous plans for this weekend. Are we ready? No one can know exactly what God has planned. All He ask is that we come out and receive. May God prepare our hearts to receive all that He has in store for us.

Praying together in unity…
Heavenly Father, we can’t wait to experience what You have planned at the retreat. Everything that You do is good. So we know, You have good things in store for us. Please prepare our hearts to receive. And God, we ask that You open our eyes to see what You are doing.
