40-Day Guided Prayer Journey - Day 40
Jesus, restore me to the tears of joy and contrition. Amen.
THE prayer MODEL
(until the Spirit is finished)
An intentional method for responding to Holy Spirit woven into the dialogue and heart of prayer. Use the blank space below each question to chronicle your journey.
Go back to Step 1 and repeat the prayer. Repeat this process until you sense the Spirit’s release from this prayer.
New International Version (NIV)
2 Corinthians 13:11
11 Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.
1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
we were like those who dreamed.
2 Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.”
3 The Lord has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes, Lord,
like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow with tears
will reap with songs of joy.
6 Those who go out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with them.
2 Corinthians 7:2
2 Make room for us in your hearts. We have wronged no one, we have corrupted no one, we have exploited no one.
13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
THE NEXT STEP in the journey
Pay attention to the emotions you feel when in prayer and write them down. Search for those same emotions in the life of Jesus.
