Starting January 1st of 2018, LifeWay will begin a 40 day journey of personal revival, seeking to get closer to God and live for Him a life of true obedience, love and surrender.
As a revival tool we will be using our very own Awakening Journal, LifeWay's first published work made possible by the contribution of more than 30 devotional writers from our church.
Six Revival Topics
We will be focusing on 6 Revival Topics taught consecutively for six weeks during Sunday morning services. The Awakening Journal will guide every participant to a daily portion of scripture and reflection throughout the 40 days, to help the soul become deeply aware of God's will and desire for our lives through the Holy Spirit. The six areas of revival are:
- Fasting: Breaking the power of idols in my life.
- Prayer: Building honest and intimate communication with God.
- Word: Learning to hear the loving voice of my heavenly Father.
- Worship: Developing a life-style of gratitude and wonder.
- Warfare: Knowing how to fight and win against darkness.
- Church: Recovering the thrill of being a part of God’s house.
21 Day Fast
During the first 21 days of our 40 days, we will be observing a corporate fast, inviting every believer to abstain from certain foods, meals, attitudes, hobbies, or habits that may be hindering their spiritual, emotional, and physical wellbeing, and instead focus on the discipline of prayer, worship, and meditation of God's word, to become more like Jesus. During those 21 days, we will have Corporate Prayer meeting on Tuesdays at church and home gatherings Wednesday through Friday. The home meetings will strengthen our fellowship as we ponder on the Journal verses assigned for those days.

May God richly bless you as you prepare to seek His heart!
