"Come close to God, and God will come close to you..." - James 4:8

 

Nothing of eternal significance happens apart from prayer.

Here at Crosspoint City, we believe that nothing of eternal significance happens apart from prayer, which is why we call our church to pray and fast for 21 days at the top of every year. This year we’ll start on January 16, and we’re calling the season Closer because our goal is simple: we want to draw close to God believing his promise that in doing so he’ll draw close to us. 
Over the course of these 21 days, we’ll provide resources on our app and website to help you pray and spend time in God’s Word. We’ll give you a fasting guide so that you can understand its purpose and be intentional about giving God your undivided attention. Then we’ll close out the season with a series of Revival Nights where we’ll gather for worship, prayer, and preaching.
 So mark down January 16th on your calendars, be on the lookout for those online resources, and make it a point to join us for the Revival Nights, February 3-5. And let’s be praying right now for God to show up and work in unexpected, undeniable ways as we draw close to him.

 

Closer 21 Days of Prayer

CLOSER: Day 15
Jan 30, 2022

Read: Psalm 15:1-5

A Psalm of David. 

 O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent? Who shall dwell on your holy hill? 2 He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart; 3 who does not slander with his tongue and does no evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his friend; 4 in whose eyes a vile person is despised, but who honors those who fear the Lord; who swears to his own hurt and does not change; 5 who does not put out his money at interest and does not take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved. 

 

Blameless

When we think about the word “blameless” in our lives, we need to think deliberate, intentional, and our heart’s motivation. Blameless people lean into obeying God, speaking truthfully, avoiding gossip, treating others fairly, avoiding saying cruel things, respecting other Christ-followers, and keeping their promises, no matter what the cost. That seems like an impossible list, but Christ is our righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21). It is through His sacrifice on the cross that we have the power of the Holy Spirit to overturn premeditated negative thoughts or intentional motivations that would lead to non-God-honoring actions. What is breeding in our thought life and cultivated in our hearts? We must wrestle with those negative thoughts and guard our hearts so we can walk blamelessly. When we walk blameless, God promises that we will stand firm and not waver, be shaken, or be carried away! 

 

Prayer

Lord, in my weakness, you say you will be my strength. I need you every hour to guard my heart and protect my mind so that I can live a life that honors you. I am struggling right now with an area, and I will give it to you. Thank you for being my righteousness. Thank you so much for being so gracious. Thank you for helping me stand firm in my faith.

REVIVAL NIGHTS

We will be hosting guest speakers on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights as we wrap up our 21 days of prayer and fasting. These revival nights will feature powerful worship, prayer, and teaching!
