Daily prayers - Power
The Power Prayers invite God to SYNC us with the big idea of Power Season. The prayers are not a way of trying harder to be a little better. They are a way of inviting Jesus to empower us by his Spirit. Jesus is the power connection between heaven and earth. When his Spirit SYNCs us with him, the power flows. We become evidence of it.
Choose any prayer style below that will best keep you in SYNC with the Holy Spirit of Jesus. If/when you realize you are out of SYNC, admit it to God, and any of these prayers will help you get back in SYNC.
1. Set of seven informal prayers to use in a weekly cycle
These are based on the seven Jubilee Verses that bring out different parts of the Power Rhythm. Use this option if you like the idea of "praying Scripture," and if variety helps you focus.
2. Same formal prayer every day for the whole Season
Make us a signal of the Spirit's power. Let it work. Let it work. Let it work.
Use this option if you like repetition and want to drill in the basic idea.
3. Simplest way -- no cards at all
"SYNC us with your intentions for spreading heaven's power all over the earth through your people." This ties you each day to the two-word prayer for all seven SYNC seasons--"SYNC us." It is based on the Lord's Prayer. A good option if you want something that will work without having to look at cards.
4. Write/say your own prayer(s)
Prayer is not "one-size-fits-all." Please adjust any of the above to fit you better, or start over and create your own prayers from scratch. Whatever SYNC's you with King Jesus and his "Power Promise" is fine! (The Promise is in Acts 1.8.)
5. Bedtime prayer
Like mealtimes, bedtime is a great time to thank Jesus for empowering us through the gift of his Spirit. We can also thank him that we get to be his messengers, letting others know that his power is available for them too. In case any thoughts or worries try to keep us awake, we can picture an old-fashioned balance scale. We put the power of the Holy Spirit on one side, our worrisome situation on the other side, and we watch to see which way the balance tips. Enjoy your rest!
