How To Participate

1. PRAISE (5 minutes)
Start your prayer hour by praising the Lord. Praise Him for things that are on your mind right now. Praise Him for all that has happened in the life of St. Luke’s during the last 75 years.

2. WAITING (5 minutes)
Spend this time waiting on the Lord. Simply rest in His presence. Think about the hour before you and the things you want the Lord to do in 2020.

3. CONFESSION (5 minutes)
Ask the Holy Spirit to show you anything in your life which might be displeasing to Him. Ask Him to point out attitudes that are wrong, as well as specific acts for which you have not yet made a prayer of confession. Now confess that to the Lord so that you might be cleansed for the remainder of the hour before you, freed from any distractions or barriers.

4. THANKSGIVING (5 minutes)
Spend these minutes giving thanks to the Lord for things in your life, things on behalf of the church that have directly or indirectly blessed others.

5. PRAY THE WORD (5 minutes)
Now take your bible and start praying the Psalms by reading through various passages. Let their words lead you into your own prayers during this time

6. FEARS AND ANXIETIES (5 minutes)
Take this time to lift up the future to God, specifically naming things that you are worried or anxious about in 2020. Imagine yourself laying down your burdens at God’s feet.

7. INTERCESSION (5 minutes) Specific prayer on the behalf of others. Pray specifically for those requests of which you are aware. Pray for St. Luke’s in 2020, her pastors, her leaders, and her congregants.

8. PETITION (5 minutes) Make your heart known to God. What is it that you want to ask God for yourself, your church, or your family in 2020? Be authentic and vulnerable.

9. READ SCRIPTURE (5 minutes)
Open up your Bible to Romans chapter 12 and read verses 1-21 reflecting on Paul’s words to the church. How does the passage speak to you and to St. Luke’s as a whole?

10. MEDITATE AND RECEIVE (5 minutes)
Ask the Lord to speak back to you keeping pen and paper handy, write down any images or responses you may feel or hear from God.

11. LISTEN AND REFLECT (5 minutes)
Spend time merging the things you have read from the Word, the things you have prayed, the things you have thanked the Lord for, the things that have been on your heart, and see how the Lord brings them all together to speak to you.

Praise the Lord for the time you have had to spend with Him. Praise Him for the impressions that He has given you. Praise Him for the prayer requests He raised up in your mind. Praise him for everything He will do in and through St. Luke’s over the next 75 years.

“Lord we thank you for 75years of ministry at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, we ask the Holy Spirit to guide us into the future and give us the boldness to follow you. In your name we pray Lord Jesus, Amen.”
