A few years ago, I decided to do a 28-Day Prayer Challenge. I'd been feeling guilty about my own lack of consistent and fervent prayer, so I figured I'd commit to providing 28 days worth of prayer prompts to hold me accountable to pray and encourage others to do the same. While I knew the basic format for prayer, as Jesus modeled in Matthew 6, I made up the content, one day at a time, throughout the challenge. As I paused to think about what I needed to talk to God about, I shared those thoughts with others and encouraged them to do the same. I honestly didn't think I'd finish. I was afraid I'd fall off the wagon and fail myself and everyone doing it with me. But I didn't. I finished the challenge and invigorated my prayer life by doing so. Praying intentionally--bit by bit, day by day--made the idea of regular, consistent prayer much less formidable. I did it because one day at a time seemed doable. This book is born out of that challenge and is written with the same end goal in mind. I want you to commit to intentional prayer, but I also want you to view this commitment as doable. This book gives you three prompts a day--morning, afternoon, and evening--that cover the basics tenants of prayer: T - THANKSGIVING & PRAISE - Gratitude to God R - REPENTANCE - Requesting forgiveness from God R - REQUEST - Sharing our desires with God Y - YIELDING - Surrender to God As you pray, I will gently lead you through each tenant so that you can understand and think deeply about each one. Then, slowly but surely, we'll put it all together. The goal is for you to keep this little book with you for 28 days. Glance at it three times a day so that you are prompted to talk to God every morning, afternoon, and evening. If you think you might forget, try doing it every time you eat. Grabbing a bite? Open up the book. Or try setting an alarm on your watch or phone (but don't dismiss the reminder until you've picked up the book!). After doing this 28-Day Prayer Challenge twice, I know one thing for sure: slow and steady wins the race. This method will help you form new habits if you'll commit to it--little by little, one day at a time, for the next four weeks. My prayer is that God would become more real to you than ever before as you spend time abiding with Him. It's possible. How do I know? Because it's happened for me.
