I was recently moved by the story a man who was challenged to "Take A Knee" everyday for 30 days. This man had been struggling in his faith walk. He was trying to overcome undesirable behaviors which had become habitual and were affecting his faith walk.
The Challenge was to simply take a knee in prayer every day. Just that simple. We are told that if we will do something for at least 21 days in a row it will become a habit so if we practice taking a knee in prayer for 30 days we should be well on our way to making it a life-habit.
When I heard this challenge an idea sparked in my head and went to my heart. Let's start a 30 Day Take A Knee Challenge. As I have prayed and meditated on the idea over the last few days I have become convinced that this is something which needs to be done. So, here it is - the 30 Day Take A Knee Prayer Challenge.
When you respond to this challenge you are committing to:
1. Bend your knee in prayer every day. It doesn't have to be a long prayer, especially in the beginning.
2. Invite some of your friends to join you in the challenge. Think of friends who would accept the challenge then ask those friends to join you in the Take A Knee In Prayer Challenge.
When you register that you have accepted the challenge you will be sent a 31 Day devotional on prayer. Each day there is a Scripture verse, a few paragraphs of inspiration and a short prayer.
Why a 31 day devotional for a 30 day challenge? It is our hope that you won't stop bending your knee in prayer after the 30 days but that you will establish a pattern daily prayer.
To register that you are joining the challenge, and to get your free devotional on prayer, just fill in the form below with your name and email address then click on the button that says "'I'm Joining"
We are serious about the "Take A Knee In Prayer 30 Day Challenge," that's why we post a daily message to encourage everyone who accepts the challenge.
I have heard people comment that something happens when they bend a knee in prayer every day. Mountains become mole hills and problems become opportunities.
There are two Scripture passages that are key to our call to prayer:
"Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints." - Ephesians 6:18
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understnanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:6-7
