August 8-28, 2021
The theme for August 21 Days of Prayer is Contentment: “I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:12-13
We are called to seek God’s contentment in our lives, our choices, decisions, country, community, and everywhere. We have been in a time of disruption in our own lives, in our country, family, community, and world. We and those around us have lost so much in our lives, yet we are called to live in God’s contentment, which can be hard to see and experience. God has called us to not focus on the strife or the conflict but to seek peace in Him, to find everything we need in focusing on Him. This doesn’t mean we don’t acknowledge or work through the struggles and issues around us but those cannot be our main focus or where we find peace and meaning, and most of all where we don’t find contentment. We desire for you to find contentment in God’s open embrace and in knowing His Son Jesus. So this August we are seeking His Contentment in our lives, our church, our community and our country; to learn from Him and to seek fulfilment in His plans and desires.
Each day people will be provided with a scripture passage, theme, a short devotional, and a prayer to work through.
