Pray – Renew – Examine – Study – Stand
What is PRESS!
Press is 30 Days of collective prayer. Each week we’ll post a specific topic or theme that we’ll lift up in prayer as a group. We’ll include scriptures that you can apply when praying for yourself and for others regarding each topic. You’ll have the opportunity to share your prayer requests in the comments section below based on that week’s specific topic and also have a chance to pray for another sister that has posted a prayer request. When and where you pray will be up to you, but we will hold weekly Prayer Calls on Thursday evenings for those that would like to join.
In addition to prayer we will discuss the contents of the book, Me and My Big Mouth by Joyce Meyer. While we pray out of one side of our mouth, we have to be careful with the words we speak out of the other side. The Bible asks “Does a spring pour out sweet and bitter water from the same opening?” James 3:11(HCSB) and states “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Proverbs 18:31. We’re going to tame our tongues and make 2016 the year we speak life and flow sweet water from the spring of our hearts.
The book discussion is separate and of course optional. The main day for discussion will be Tuesday. I’ll post questions beginning at 10 a.m. You may join us at any time during the day to add to the discussion.
The Purpose for PRESS!
God wants this year to be #sweet2016 for you. That’s why it has been such a tough year for many of us. We are almost halfway through 2016. We have some praise reports, but we also have some disappointments, broken promises, distractions, and other issues that have been so bad it feels like hell is vomiting up the worse of what it has. Nevertheless, we shall #press through in prayer and finish strong. Amen.
All activities are optional, but we pray you will PRESS and join us for as many as possible.
PRESS begins Wednesday, June 1, 2016 and ends on June 30, 2016.
We’ll PRESS right here in the Facebook group. I’ll also share the weekly prayer on the blog www.afaithworthliving.com
