Breakthrough 2023 Prayer Guide
Each morning you will find a new Prayer Guide that will help facilitate a time of prayer and meditation. We encourage you to reflect, be still, and listen as you pray and read through the guides. Each guide is structured around the acronym P.R.A.Y. For more information check out this post.
May the next 14 days be marked by transformation and depth of intimacy with the Lord.
El Olam // The Everlasting God
As we enter into a time of prayer and meditation, take a moment to quiet your soul. The Psalmist invites us to be still and know that He is God. Be still. Take a deep breath. Clear your mind and ask the Lord to protect your thoughts.
Pray the following prayer:
El Olam, The Everlasting God, I might not have much but what I do have is a heart that beats for You. Stir up a hunger in my soul to sit in Your presence, and to taste and see that You are indeed good. Come, Holy Spirit.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
For God to truly be El Olam, Everlasting, He must be the God who is, and who was and who is to come. He is the God that was there at the beginning and will be forever. To acknowledge God as Everlasting must also mean we acknowledge that nothing will ever threaten the throne in which He resides and rules from.
To acknowledge God as the one who is, and who was, and who is to come means that we acknowledge His faithfulness in the past (who was), as well as His faithfulness and provision for the future (who is to come). It also means that we trust Him today (who is). Often times the latter is the most difficult.
"Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom."
As we near the end of our Breakthrough prayer guide it is tempting to box the Lord into a “special weekend.” Perhaps this morning you are already wondering if this has all been nothing more than a ‘spiritual high.’ But if we are to accept God as everlasting then we must also accept that no event or weekend can ever contain or corner God. Instead, He desires to continue to reveal Himself to you, as He did yesterday, as He will today, and forever.
"being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
End your time by praying the following prayer:
May the peace of the Lord Christ go with me: wherever He may send me.
May He guide me through the wilderness: protect me through the storm.
May He bring me home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown.
