The Vision Prayers invite God to SYNC us with the big idea of Vision Season. The prayers are not a way of trying harder to be a little better. They are a way of inviting God to bring us on board with his vision of Christ's reign!
Choose any prayer style option below that will best keep you in SYNC with God's vision. 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 Vision 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
Light up our faces with the glory to come. Let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine.
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 Vision" or "SYNC me with your Vision." 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 Christ's return is fine!
5. Bed-time prayer
The Bible ends with the prayer, "Yes, come Lord Jesus!" (Revelation 22.20). That is also a great way to end each of our days. Look back at our day, at what happened or didn't, and invite Jesus to come back. Then sleep peacefully with that prospect on our minds. The Christmas King is coming, and everything is going to be all right!
