Hello, Praying friends,
If you are finding yourself, “late to the game” that is perfectly ok! Remember that the Lord doesn’t want us under the law. As I shared last week, the Lord is calling me into a 30-day season of prayer, June 1-30, 2023, for revival for my own city, family, church…everything! I invite you to join me in this journey in whatever way that Holy Spirit leads you. If you are just getting started, don’t worry about “catching up.” Just jump on board in whatever way you are able. I will be posting prayer guides each week during this season with brief daily prompts. I encourage you, as you are able, to take just a few moments each day to agree in prayer with me. I encourage you to add fasting to your prayers in whatever way is appropriate for you. During this season, consider doing an occasional fast from media, a favorite food, or even by giving up a meal on occasion and using that time to pray. If you miss a day or even a week, please don’t fret! Remember that the Lord loves spending time with you and me! I am excited and expectant to watch God move on our behalf! Blessings, Gina
