40/40 Prayer Guide


Dear Friend in Christ, we are delighted that you will join us in prayer for spiritual revival and national renewal. Our nation is in need of both. Jesus declared that His followers are the salt of the earth and the light of the world (Matthew 5:13-16). We must become engaged in this battle for our nation’s soul. However, until as Christians we experience revival in our own lives, it will be extremely difficult to restore our nation’s moral foundations.

The  battle  for  our  nation’s  soul  is  not  just  about  voting  booths.  This  is  first  and  foremost  a  spiritual  contest.  A  spiritual  battle  is  being  waged  across our nation, and it must be met first of all with spiritual weapons. God’s people must pray for a great outpouring of God’s Spirit on them, the  churches,  and  the  nation.  Then,  when  God  has  responded  with  His  outpouring, His people will be empowered and motivated to do the hard work of restoring our nation’s moral foundation.

This Prayer Guide will help you join with thousands of other fellow believers to bring these great needs before God. The Guide provides a page for each day and hour of the 40/40 Prayer Vigil. Each page has everything you need to invest in a time of personal spiritual reflection and petition for yourself, the church, and the nation. Please keep in mind though, that the Guide is just that — a guide. It is designed to give you a starting place for your time of prayer. Here are some suggestions for making your prayer vigil a powerful, personal spiritual time.

How to Get Started

This prayer guide can be used by an individual, a small group, an entire church body, or an even larger group. Here’s how:

•   First, decide if  you    want to   use    this    as   a  personal guide to   40   days of prayer or ask others to join you.
•   Second, decide if  you    want to   pray    for   forty days or   forty hours. The Guide is designed to support either of these options.
      • You    can    pray    once each day    between September 26   and November 4, for forty days of prayer.
      • You can    pray for    forty hours, between 4:00 p.m. on November 2 and 8:00 a.m. on November 4.
•   Third, if  you    decide to  make this    a  group effort, create a  sign-up list   and ask others to join you in the prayer time.
•   Fourth, register your commitment to   pray at   the    40/40 Prayer Vigil Web  site  (  to  let  others  know  that  you  are  joining  the national movement to seek God for spiritual revival and national renewal.
