Day 8 - Prayer and Fasting

“Never look back unless you are planning to go that way” ~Henry David Thoreau 

Elisha followed Elijah for years and watched him perform miracles, heal people, and prophesy. Elijah had called fire down from heaven and hid from Jezebel. Elisha wanted what Elijah had, and wanted to be as near to the action as he could get. 

However, in the beginning he had made a courageous commitment to the future with Elijah by letting go of his past. He burned the ox, gave himself no other option but to move forward with Elijah. 

Scripture Focus: Read 1 Kings 19:19-21 
Key Verse: 1 Kings 19:21 

Journaling Guide: 
  • What options are you leaving open that God is asking you to burn? Doors can be reopened. It’s time to take them off their hinges and burn them down. 
  • What options do I need to eliminate? 
  • Is following Jesus my only option? 

Prayer Focus: 
  • Ask God to help you to surrender your options to Him and trust that His will is the best way. 
  • PRAY FOR OUR CHURCH: Expand Our Holiness 1 Peter 1.13-16; Romans 13.11-14; Colossians 3.5-11
    • Ask the Lord to show you any areas of your life that need to become more like him.
    • Ask the Lord to send a spirit of revival through our church.
