10 Days of Prayer

In the 10 Days leading into ARISE Conference we are joining together to pray and believe for God to move in power during this years Conference.

We will be praying for the church of this nation to be aware of God’s movement, alive to his purpose and awakened to his call. That a new generation would rise up, fully awake, living for God’s purpose, bold and courageous in all they do. It is our prayer that a fully awake church will impact our world
with the truth and love of our Jesus!

Daily Prayer Focus

MON 9 JULY

Awake O Sleeper
Lord we thank you for your word that says “Awake o’sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will give you light”. We believe at ARISE Conference there will be an awakening of your church across this nation. That as people return to their cities and towns there will be an awakening within the Church for all that you have for it.
- Ephesians 5:14

Our Prayer:
That as the light of Christ is shone upon your people, dreams will be reignited, marriages and families will be reunited, body’s will be restored. People will be awakened to the power of Christ in their lives.

TUE 10 JULY

We Seek You
It says in Psalm 24:6, “This is the generation of them that seek Him, that seek thy face”. Let it be said that at ARISE Conference, we are that generation. We come to seek God, and as we do, He turns His face to us. Let many people leave with a clear picture of who they are in Him, having seen His reflection within themselves.

Our Prayer:
Lord, we pray that as we seek your face at ARISE Conference this year, you hold the mirror of your word to us. Reveal our true selves to us through your word. For our children, family and friends, show your face clearly to them. Let us experience your glory in a personal way that leaves an imprint on us that cannot be removed.

WED 11 JULY

Draw Near To Us
"Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you" – James 4:8.
We believe that as people take time out of their day to day to draw near to God at ARISE Conference, they will come with the assurance that He will draw near to them. We are expectant that they will feel His manifest presence upon them.

Our Prayer:
We pray, Lord, that 
you will draw near to us. Let your presence fall upon us, Lord. Let your presence fall upon those we love. Come near to us, God, and reveal your plans for us.

THU 12 JULY

Your Answer
We stand on God’s word, which says in Isaiah 65:24 “And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and yet while they are speaking I will hear”. Even now as we lift our prayers to Him, He is answering our prayers of direction and provision, of healing and salvation. We declare that those coming to ARISE Conference with a prayer in their heart will step into conference knowing He already has an answer waiting for them.

Our Prayer:
Lord, we pray for our family members who are far away from you, for our nation and for every pastor who serves you. We thank you that you hear our prayer and you answer us. We come to ARISE Conference expectant to hear your answer.

FRI 13 JULY

You Are Faithful
In Psalm 119:89–90 it says,
“Your word, Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Your faithfulness continues through all generations; you established the earth, and it endures”. We are thankful that God remains faithful through all generations. We are thankful that His word is eternal and that it continues to endure – for the next generation who will gather to be impacted by your word. We ask that God would set them apart for His purpose and plant in them the indestructible seed of His word.

Our Prayer:
Lord, we pray that your eternal word speaks to us personally at ARISE Conference. Re-establish your rightful place in our hearts so that we are reminded of your faithfulness towards us and our families.

06

SAT 14 JULY

The Implanted Word
James 1:21 says “The implanted word is able to save your soul”. We declare that as God’s word is spoken across ARISE Conference,
Get Smart and Glow Kids Conference, that we will see many hearts come to know you. We believe that as His word is implanted in hearts, it will bring people to salvation and that they would continue to pursue Him throughout their lifetime.

Our Prayer:
We pray for our children, family members and friends who are yet to come to know you, God. As they hear your word, let them receive the free gift of salvation.

SUN 15 JULY

Your Full Measure
We lift up the pastors of New Zealand. As Paul says in Ephesians 3:16, “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being... that they may be filled to the full measure of God”.
We believe that through this full measure, nothing will be impossible for them. We declare that all plans and strategies given to them for this nation and the nations of the world will come to pass, as predestined before time.

Our Prayer:
Lord, we pray that your full measure falls upon every pastor at ARISE Conference. Your full measure of joy, your full measure of health, your full measure of love, your full measure of peace, your full measure of wisdom, your full measure of faithfulness and your full measure of goodness.

08

MON 16 JULY

Your Spirit
We lift the ARISE Conference speakers to the Lord. We thank God that his Spirit is upon them and declare what it says in Isaiah 61:1, “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners...”.

Our Prayer:
As the Conference speakers proclaim the good news of the Gospel to those who are poor in spirit, we pray that broken hearts will be restored and people will be set free. We declare that the chains of darkness will be released off
hearts and minds.

TUE 17 JULY

Heal Us Lord
His word says in Psalm 107:20 “He sent forth His word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave.” We declare together, that as the word of God is spoken in every session, it would heal people. As they sit under His spoken word it is like flesh to the bones, it is healing to the sick. We believe that as God’s word is sent forth we will see many people rescued from the grave and brought into His Kingdom.

Our Prayer:
Lord, for those of us who need healing, we lift our bodies to you. For those who need marriage reconciliation, we lift our marriages to you. For those who need relationships restored, we lift our relationships to you. For those that need healing
from words spoken over them, we lift our hearts to you. As your word goes forth, Lord, let healing fall.

WED 18 JULY

Unity
“How good and how pleasant it
is for brothers to dwell together
in unity! ... for there the LORD commands the blessing” – Psalm 133:1–3. Our prayer as a company of people meeting at ARISE Conference under His name, is that we would be united in the cause of Christ. We are believing that where there is unity across the church of New Zealand, He would indeed bless His church. God says in Deuteronomy 32:30 “if one can set a thousand to flight and two ten thousand” – with this united focus of purpose and participation in seeing New Zealand saved we could indeed see a rising tide of faith across every suburb, city, and region of our nation.

Our Prayer:
We pray that as families are united under the name of Jesus that your blessing would ow through to their children and their children’s children. That households would be blessed
with the fruit of your spirit.

"To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing." - Martin Luther

WHY DO WE PRAY?


Prayer is the foundation of our faith, the source of our authority, and the power of our lives The result of prayer as an individual, is that I draw closer to God and closer to my purpose. I can see the impossible made possible. I can hear Gods voice and respond. The result of prayer as a church, is that we see increasing impact and increasing momentum. What we could not do is accomplished. What we could not see comes to life. Luke 11:9-10 NLT
‘And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.’
– Jesus Christ.
Prayer is fundamental to my life.
Prayer is fundamental to our church.
