Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
this prayer initiative is to dedicate ourselves to pray for the 7 mountains or spheres of influence in our society over a specific period. Forty (40) is frequently used as a multiple of time for testing, trial, or probation throughout scripture, often with dedicated prayer and fasting by the people involved.
When Jesus outlined prayer to the Father (Matthew 6:10, Luke 11:2) He instructs His followers to pray for His Kingdom to come and His Will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Prayer is central to His teaching on how the Kingdom of God advances through the ages. Thus, this instruction demonstrates that if congregations are to be instruments of the Kingdom to a lost and dying world, prayer must be foundational to the body and all its activities.
If you feel stirred in your spirit to involve, please read through the document (link below) and at the same time seek our Lord Christ Jesus through the Holy Spirit to confirm if and when you should be a part of this prayer initiative.
If you wish to use this booklet, please acknowledge the author and the sources.
You may decide to pray and fast continuously over forty days (e.g. over Lent), or you may set aside a day per week to pray over forty weeks. A longer approach could be to set aside a week, or even a month, to pray for each of the spheres. You and Jesus decide together.
Our Lord bless you and may He be glorified through you.
