Prayer Challenge

A little over a week ago, I told you about the trip to a youth conference I attended with the youth from our church. 

I also mentioned that I would have a prayer challenge for us to do.  I wanted to make sure that I did it at least once before I presented the idea to you. 

So, here is the challenge:

To wake up 30 minutes earlier one day a week and spend that time, not in the bible, not reading a book, not doing laundry, but in total silence, waiting on the Lord.  Now, if you do not have a newborn this should be attainable for most of us.

In our family room, where there is no TV, we have a wall writing.  I love what it says!

Let us be silent that we may hear the whispers of God.

That is my challenge to you and to myself.  To get up at a time when no one in the house is awake and just be silent, waiting on God to speak to us.  I suggest to have a journal in hand just incase you like what he has to say and you want to write it down, or if he puts something on your heart to pray. 

I am going to do a linky party on this next Tuesday.  So, some on back here and link your post about the prayer challenge here.

Here is my button:
The rope in the button relates to the verse

In Ecclesiastes:“Two are better than one, because they have a good
return on their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."

When we don’t have each other and God then we become as weak as the fraying rope above.



  1. This is a great challenge for me. I am usually up early in the word or a book, yet prayer is the hardest part of that time, so this is great! I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in that 30 minutes.

  2. I am always up early but I need to be still and listen:) I am making a note of your link party for next Tuesday. I would also love to invite you to my first ever party going on right now. Hope to see you there

  3. Thank you for linking this message to Freedom Fridays:) This does need for all of us to share.
