Day 9 — Tuesday, January 26 Inward Focus on Amazed By God
On this second day of our inward focus we dream of being amazed by God. Our formal dream statement as a church reads,
“We want to be a church that asks God to do what only He can do and then trusts Him to do it. We want to be amazed as we watch God open doors, tear down walls, build bridges, and cross barriers. We dream of looking around and realizing that God has done what only God can do. We want to be an undeniable, unexplainable, and somewhat uncomfortable example of God’s supernatural power to those who would otherwise deny His existence. We want to be amazed at God’s power!”
Let us start by being amazed at what God is like from Psalm 139:1–6,
“O LORD, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it.”
With this wonderful knowledge of God’s intimacy with us, knowing that He is close, let us ask God to amaze us by praying the following requests:
- Amaze us by answering our prayers as a church.
- Amaze us by opening doors for the gospel to change lives.
- Amaze us by doing things in our church that are only explainable by You.
- Amaze us by making us into a church that is sold out to living for Christ.
- Amaze us by performing miracles to those who deny your power.
Today’s short but powerful prayer “SBPP” is, “Lord, amaze us with your presence and your power.”
