30 Days…to live? 30 Days…to break a habit? 30 Days…to vacate the premises (eviction notice)? 30 Days…to lose 30 pounds? 30 Days…to try (free-trial period)? 30 Days…to a new you? 30 Days…to success? These are just a few popular phrases that have been expressed in today’s society and experienced by some individuals in association with “30 Days.” Hopefully, in regards to prayer and the church arena, when 30 Days…is presented, one of the first things that should come to mind during this time (before the phrase is even completed) is “30 Days…of Prayer,” as this has become a rewarding challenge each year!
What an opportune way to start off the new year by entering into a time of prayer and consecration. In doing so, surely you will find “30 Days to Success”…and more! God answers prayer! According to His will and divine intervention, prayer can help the dying…to live; the addicted….to break a habit; the impossible…to be possible, and more! Can you imagine as the masses unite in prayer in one mind and one accord, the life-changing and phenomenal impact that it will have in the kingdom of God?
Biblically, the number 30 denotes a higher level of perfection of Divine order of precise chosen time. Jesus was 30 years of age as His ministry commenced. John the Baptist followed. Joseph, a type of Jesus, was the same age. King David also was 30 years old, when he began to reign over Israel. The number 30 also signifies dedication. Aaronic priests were dedicated to serve at age 30. Thirty also portrays the blood of Christ. What meaningful symbolism!
Surely, God’s got your number…and even the hairs on our heads are numbered (Luke 12:7). “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you” (James 4:8). Churches and individuals worldwide are encouraged to participate in the “UPCI 30 Days…of Prayer” from January 2 – 31, 2021. The theme is “BEYOND.” The prayer agenda will be listed weekly in WNOP’s newsletter, Prayer Connect. As we unite as one Body, let’s go above and beyond to new dimensions in Christ, to see His Spirit greater manifest among us through the dynamic power of prayer!
Let’s advance God’s kingdom! Determine to develop a greater relationship with Him in your personal life and in the work of God. Allow Him to continue to perfect and complete you, as you greater dedicate to Him (Philippians 1:6). Leave behind the woes of the old year (2020), and look unto Jesus in the new year (2021), and receive “Double for Your Trouble!” So, join with us in corporate prayer these “30 Days…” this year and watch the miraculous also unfold in the other “335 Days”…and BEYOND!
