40 Days of Prayer


Fall 2020 Small Groups
At some point, you’ll face impossible obstacles and barriers — situations that make you think there’s no way this is going to work out. But God wants to help you handle uncertainty when it comes your way. He is ready and willing to give you a breakthrough, but it doesn’t just happen spontaneously; breakthroughs happen when you seek them. And the way you seek them is through prayer!

Focus
This fall, the whole VOH community will journey deep into the heart of God through the intimacy of prayer. You will learn how to cultivate a powerful prayer life and experience breakthrough in your relationship challenges, financial difficulties, bad habits, health crises, and many other areas of your life. For seven weeks, all small groups — every pastor, and every church member — will go through Rick Warren’s 40 Days of Prayer series. We will follow that with five weeks of Vineyard’s Come Holy Spirit Prayer curriculum designed to help us better hear God’s voice as we learn to skillfully and compassionately pray for others. Don’t miss a single week of this life-changing series! 

Materials
The 40 Days of Prayer Workbook is the only book you will need for the small group. Pick up your book from the Hope Building lobby starting the week of Aug 31st, Monday – Friday between the hours of 10:00am – 2:00pm and Sundays between 9:30-11:30am at the Harvest Building. Books are free of charge; if you’d like to help cover costs of the book, the suggested donation is $15. To donate, you can select “40 Days of Prayer” on the Church Center App or on vineyardofharvest.churchcenter.com/giving.
