Service Type:

Prayer is the lifeblood of movements

If we are going to see movements in our life, church, community, nation, or world, we will need go see a new ongoing commitment to serious, intense, persistent prayer. 

  • People can willingly change their behaviors & actions to the point of their own strength, abilities, & understanding
  • Only God can change the heart through our prayers, faith in Jesus Christ, and acceptance and following of the Holy Spirit.


My Part: Repent of my wickedness

  • Requires I become aware of my wickedness
  • Ask God to show me


God’s part: Shows me my seen and unseen wickedness


My Part: Have a conviction of my wickedness


God’s part: Ask God to convict me


My Part: Turn from my wickedness


God’s part: Ask the Holy Spirit to help me


My Part: Pray To the LORD

  • Ask for forgiveness for the wickedness in my heart


God’s part: to provide the gift of forgiveness


Heavenly Father,

I come before You with a humble heart, seeking to repent of my wickedness.

Please reveal to me the sins in my heart that I may not be aware of, those I can see and those hidden from my sight.

As You reveal my sins, grant me the conviction to truly understand and feel the weight of my wickedness so that I may have a genuine sense of remorse and the desire to change.

Allow the Holy Spirit to guide and strengthen me in my efforts to turn away from these sins and to follow Your righteous ways.

LORD, forgive me for the wickedness in my heart.

Thank You, Lord, for hearing my prayer.

Thank You, Lord, for hearing.

Thank You, Lord.

Thank You

I receive Your forgiveness provided through Your mercy and grace found in Jesus Christ, and commit to living a life that honors You, with the help of Your Holy Spirit.

In Jesus' name, Amen.
