Month Of Prayer

Month Of Prayer

Month of PrayerHave you ever struggled with knowing what to pray? Have you ever felt as though your prayer life is not as deep or diverse as you think it should be? Do you simply want to improve your prayer life? Then consider participating in a Month of Prayer. 

The Buford Church of Christ has put together a prayer initiative to assist people in growing their prayer life. We call it the “Month of Prayer,” and our congregation will be conducting it throughout December 2019.

This Month of Prayer will feature a specific prayer for you to focus on each day of the month. Some prayers will emphasize praising God for His character and/or nature (Psalm 106:1-2). Some prayers will challenge you to confess something to God (1 John 1:8-9). Some prayers will have you thank God for what He has done for you (Psalm 100:4-5). And some prayers will be designed for you to present specific requests to God (Philippians 4:6-7). The schedule for these prayers is provided below.
