Join us as we pray! (Week One)

Monday, November 17th:

Read: Exodus 15:11

“Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?” 

Pray…

Right after Israel witnessed one of the most amazing miracles in the Bible (chapt. 14 – God’s parting of the Red Sea) Moses burst into a song of praise. The above verse is a reminder to Israel and to us that there is no god like our God.

  • Today as you pray ask God to remind you that there is no other god like our God.
  • As you read God’s Word, pray that God would help you to clearly see his majesty, greatness, and glory. 


Tuesday, November 18th:

Read: Psalm 48:1

“Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised in the city of our God!”

Pray…

J.I. Packer says, “When the Bible speaks of God as being on high and in heaven; the thought here is not that God is far distance from us in space, but that he is far above us in greatness, and therefore is to be adored.” Seeing the greatness of God will elicit in us a response of praise and worship to God.

  • Today as you pray…sit and reflect on the greatness of our God.
  • As you reflect on the greatness of God, thank Him specifically for the ways in which He has demonstrated His greatness in your life. 


Wednesday, November 19th:

Read: Colossians 1:15-20

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by[a] him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

Pray…

The clearest picture of God’s greatness, His glory, and His majesty is in the revealed person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the image of the one and only God. Who God is – in all of the fullness of His glory – has been clearly shown to us in Jesus.

  • As you are praying today thank God for sending Jesus to live a perfect life for you and yet die the death you deserved…in your place.
  • Allow the weight of God’s glory – seen through His Son – to sink deep into your heart and move you to worship. 


Thursday, November 20th:

Read: Isaiah 43:7

“For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I give Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in exchange for you. Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life.
Fear not, for I am with you, I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west will gather you. I will say to the north, Give up, and to the south, Do not withhold; bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”
 

Pray…

God has created us with purpose. And that purpose is found centrally in bringing Him glory. Each day when we wake we must remember that our greatest endeavor…our lasting call is to bring the God of this universe glory with every ounce of our being and with every last dimension of our lives.

  • Today pray and ask God to remind you that He has created you with a purpose and that purpose is to glorify Him.
  • Ask God to help you see specific ways (e.g. your job, your finances, your marriage) in your life where you can glorify Him. 


Friday the 21st and Saturday the 22nd:

Read: Job 38-39

“Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: ‘Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Dress for action like a man; I will question you, and you make it known to me. ‘Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?’”

Pray…

One of the greatest conversations in Scripture is found here at the end of Job. God addresses Job and in doing so He gives example after example of how His greatness is on display before our eyes…every single day. When we look around through the lens of God’s glory we see how His greatness is on display constantly.

  • As you read this passage – write out the specific ways in which God talks about His greatness on display as Creator and in creation.
  • Pray throughout today that God would give you eyes to see His greatness on display in your life.
  • Lastly, pray that God would give you a proper response of worship in light of who He is and the abounding greatness of His glory on display.
