Day 8

September 14

Key Verse: “Elisha said, ‘Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few. Pour oil into all the jars’ ... They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring. When all the jars were full, she said to her son, ‘Bring me another one’. But he replied, ‘There is not a jar left.’ Then the oil stopped flowing.” (2 Kings 4:3-6, NIV)

Prayer Point: God will pour the oil of His Spirit into as many as are willing to receive it. We need to be asking all our neighbors to the Celebration of Hope weekend.

Prayer: Out of our deep spiritual need in the Quinte region, we come to You, Lord God, and ask for not a few, but many, to be filled with the life-giving oil of Your Spirit. As You take the spiritual poverty of our unsaved family and friends and turn it into untold kingdom riches, may that be the catalyst for revival amongst the churches in the Quinte region. Lord, grant us the capacity to truly believe in the transforming power of the Gospel and the courage to invite the “empty jars” in our sphere of influence who are waiting to be asked ... and filled. Amen.
