Joyful Praying

21 Days of Prayer Encounter at COS Day 18

Joyful Praying

If your faith in Christ doesn’t lead you to pray, then have nothing to do with it; get rid of it and God help you to begin again. 

Charles Spurgeon 

When God has something very great to accomplish for his church, it is His will that there should precede it, the extraordinary prayers of His people. And it is revealed that when God is about to accomplish great things for His church, He will begin by remarkably pouring out the spirit of grace and supplication. 

Jonathan Edwards 

Always be joyful, never stop praying; be thankful in all circumstances.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Prayer Focus: As you pray today, choose to pray with joy and pray all day with all types of prayers for Encounter. Pray longs prayers, short prayers, popcorn (one line) prayers, silent prayers, verbal prayers, praise prayers, and prayers with the Holy Spirit. Pray prayers of thanks for the leadership and staff at COS. The entire staff is amazingly and wonderfully supportive, and praying for Encounter too. 

Be Blessed and Encouraged
