Day 21: WallsBy Brooke M.
During this Secret Church on Good Friday, April 6, we are focusing our prayer time on the people of the Horn of Africa. Throughout the weeks leading up to Secret Church we will post information and prayer requests on this blog. We invite you to join us in learning about and praying for the people of the Horn.
At any given moment on any given day, a trip past the typical Orthodox church in the Horn will remind you of the separation the Orthodox people feel from God, and their desire to be right before Him. They gather outside the church walls, feeling too unclean to enter His presence inside the building. Many will not even approach the building itself, but will remain outside the courtyard walls if they feel very sinful.
- Every time you walk through a doorway today, lift up the people of the Horn. Pray that they will enter into God’s presence through the only Doorway, Jesus Christ.
- Think of how many times each week you pass within the walls of your church. This week, before you enter, pause outside the doorway and pray for the Horn.
Ways to Pray
- Pray for people who are hungry for a relationship with their Father in Heaven to believe on the only One who can make them clean before Him and not seek other paths to Him.
- Ask for the walls surrounding their hearts to fall and for God to open their hearts to the grace of Jesus Christ.
